In Lily Collins‘ newest movie Love, Rosie, the 26-year-old actress takes on the role of a single teen mom alongside The Hunger Games‘ Sam Claflin.
Lily recently opened up on the movie during her recent photoshoot with Yahoo Style, where she dished on the more positive outlook the film gives teen mothers.
“Rosie is very real, and she’s someone who is forced to grow up very quickly,” Lily says. “She is a very strong, empowered young female. I found that really inspiring because it was showing this teenage pregnancy in a way that was very uplifting as opposed to negative.”
“I’ve been so fortunate to work with so many successful women who are moms as well,” Lily adds on the women she’s worked with. “They prove that you can do both in this industry.”
As for the movie industry, Lily says: “Hollywood is such a fickle place, and you really have to go day to day and with the flow. Things happen so quickly, for the good or the bad. But you also have to know that everything happens for a reason.”
Lily also dished on her fashion inspiration, crediting her mother for love of vintage clothing.
“She was always wearing vintage, and people would put their noses up at her because it wasn’t as fashionable back then,” Lily says. “But she rocked it. And when I was growing up, I was really into vintage. She has all the vintage Vivienne Westwood and all these cool pieces that are so hard to find.”
