Bustle has published an article, featuring many powerful women speaking about their first time voting. Lily Collins was one of the chosen ones for the article, joining Beanie Feldstein, Stacey, and Gloria Steinem. You can read Lily’s part below, and don’t forget to vote!

It was 2008. I was 19, so it was the first presidential year I was eligible to vote. I was working for Nickelodeon at the time, part of their show called Kids Pick the President. We spoke to people about the vote and how kids could [get] involved. I had done a lot of research, asked a lot of questions. When it came time for Election Day, it was such a big day for me. I can remember everything about it. My mom and I went together. I was wearing a light pair of jeans and a gray long-sleeve sweater.

I have a photo of myself actually placing the ballot in the box. When we left, having the sticker and being like, “Oh my God, I just did it,” felt so empowering. I kept my “I Voted” sticker on all day and then stuck it on a piece of paper with the words, “First time voting, 19 years old” on the back. I remember feeling like I had truly been part of history.

That night, I was driving with my mom in the car. I have an image of driving down Sunset Boulevard, staring at Tower Records, which is very LA. At a stoplight, the results were coming in, and we were turning up the volume. I remember Obama being in the lead. It was so joyous. I remember hearing and seeing people honking and celebrating in the streets. History was being made, and we had to make as much noise as possible.

Hello Lilyians! It’s been some slow times with news, but we hope everyone is okay and being safe. Lily’s been doing some virtual press tour for Emily in Paris, set to premiere October 2nd on Netflix. One of her interviews was with W magazine, and you can find the full interview below, along with a couple of portraits taken by Charlie McDowell.

The actress Lily Collins recently found peace sitting on a surfboard in the Pacific Ocean, waiting for a wave to come. Of all the activities Collins took up while quarantining at her home in Los Angeles over the summer—jamming through stacks of books about meditation and self-reflection; listening to podcasts from Brené Brown and Jay Shetty, a former monk; going on road trips to Northern California—surfing became a particular favorite. After some lessons on land from her boyfriend, Charlie McDowell, an avid surfer himself, she’d wade in. When the swell came, she’d hop up on her board, trying to be as strong as she could, focused on simply getting on her feet and staying there. She realized she had no control over the water, which would sometimes completely take her over, swallow her up in its power, and then spit her back out onto the shore. Whenever that happened, Collins just let it ride out, face-planting into sand, often in front of other beach-goers. What else could she do?

On the phone a couple months later, Collins is one of the few people you’ll hear describe her experience in lockdown as “amazing, actually.”

“I know it’s super strange, but I haven’t been stationary in one place for this long in—I can’t remember how long,” 31-year-old Collins says. But like most others, she spent the time forced to do a fair amount of reflection on what she wanted from her life: without the distractions of traveling, work, spending time with friends and family, going outside, a metaphorical mirror was placed in front of her, forcing her to dig deep and look at the things about herself she might have usually ignored.

A first look at Mank, which stars Lily Collins, Amanda Seyfried, Gary Oldman, and Charles Dance has been released by Awards Watch. We’ve added to our gallery a production still featuring Lily as Rita Alexander, and you can read more details from the movie taken from the article below.

Mank is 1930s Hollywood re-evaluated through the eyes of scathing social critic and alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz as he races to finish the screenplay of Citizen Kane for Orson Welles. The film is written by Fincher’s late father Jack Fincher. Although Fincher was an accomplished essayist, with works in Readers Digest, Saturday Review, The Smithsonian, among others, this is his first and only screenplay.

The film follows screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz (Academy Award winner Gary Oldman) during the the tumultuous development of Citizen Kane and features a rich cast playing a veritable who’s who of the Golden Age of Hollywood that includes Amanda Seyfried as Marion Davies, Lily Collins as Rita Alexander, Arliss Howard as Louis B. Mayer, Tom Pelphrey as Joe Mankiewicz, Toby Leonard Moore as David O. Selznick, Tom Burke as Orson Welles and Charles Dance as William Randolph Hearst, the millionaire publishing magnate who went to the Earth’s end to keep Citizen Kane – a very thinly veiled examination of Heart’s life – from being released. The film also stars Sam Troughton, Ferdinand Kingsley, Tuppence Middleton, Jamie McShane, Joseph Cross and Monika Gossman.

It’s official: Darren Star’s Emily in Paris is moving from Paramount Network to Netflix.

The Paris-shot romantic comedy starring Lily Collins was originally poised to launch on the ViacomCBS-owned basic cable network last summer but will officially debut in the fall on the streaming giant.

The 10-episode half-hour comedy revolves around Emily, an ambitious 20-something marketing executive from Chicago, who unexpectedly lands her dream job in Paris when her company acquires a French luxury marketing company — and she is tasked with revamping their social media strategy. Emily’s new life in Paris is filled with intoxicating adventures and surprising challenges as she juggles winning over her work colleagues, making friends and navigating new romances.

Star created the series, which was filmed entirely on location in Paris and throughout France. The comedy is produced by MTV Studios and Jax Media, which also is behind Star’s TV Land favorite, Younger. Jax’s Tony Hernandez and Lilly Burns exec produce alongside Andrew Fleming and Star.

“MTV Studios and I couldn’t hope for a more perfect home for Emily in Paris than Netflix. With their international reach, we are excited to share Emily with audiences around the world,” Star said.

WWD published a couple of weeks ago an article on Emily in Paris, the upcoming television series starring Lily! Our gallery has been updated with two behind the scenes photos featuring Lily, and you can read the full article below.

Among clichés about Paris: Fashion is such an entrenched part of daily life that taxi drivers in the French capital can talk authoritatively about collections and designers during fashion weeks.

Darren Star discovered a new one: that French extras on film sets know precisely, almost instinctively, how to behave at a fashion show.

That was the case last week when 250 extras assembled for one of the finale scenes for season one of “Emily in Paris,” the television series the “Sex and the City” and “Beverly Hills, 90210” creator has been filming in the French capital, and environs, for the last four months. Shooting wraps up this week, and the 10 episodes are slated to air next summer on the Paramount Network.

“We’re really getting the character and the texture of the city — and it informs everything we do,” says Star, inviting WWD to attend a sprawling shoot in the courtyard of La Monnaie de Paris that involved a garbage truck, a guerrilla fashion show of outlandish neon gowns, and a roped-off red carpet swamped by a noisy crowd.

Star describes the series as a romantic comedy or “dramedy” centered on a “fish-out-of-water” American in Paris, portrayed by Lily Collins, on this day dressed in a floral-print puffer jacket, matching short skirt and bright pink beret.

The 30-year-old actress appears in almost every scene as Emily, sharing her star billing with a city that Star has swooned over since he was 19, and one he found to be more ravishing and picturesque than ever.

“We’ve become very inward-looking as a country, and I think it’s good to do a show that celebrates another culture,” Star says, seated on a director’s chair tucked in a chilly hallway steps away from the main action. “Anywhere you put the camera, this city looks gorgeous and surreally beautiful. That’s another cliché of Paris.”
