Man, I can’t believe that Lily Collins is really 28-years-old now. Seems like just yesterday Phil Collins’ daughter was starring in her first major film role in the movie Priest with Paul Bettany, but that was clear back in 2011. Time really does fly. Now she’s been in 10 movies with an 11th, Okja, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Tilda Swinton, set to hit Netflix on Wednesday the 28th. She’s even going to be starring in a new show for Amazon called The Last Tycoon, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s last book, along with Matt Bomer and Kelsey Grammer that’s set to premiere on July 28th.
I don’t know if all of that is why Collins did this new photo shoot for Shape magazine or not. Probably had something to do with it is my guess. That and the fact that she’s still promoting her new book Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me.
Regardless of the reasons why she did it, it’s cool to see her doing so well now that Shape magazine felt she was worthy of their cover this month. I had a pretty good feeling back in 2011 that one day Collins would become a big star in Hollywood. Looks like she’s well on her way.

I’m so excited and proud to reveal my cover for @Shape’s July/August issue! Thank you for giving me a place to share what it really means to be healthy and to #LoveMyShape. It's been a long journey and I never thought I'd be able to bare it all like this! Link in my bio for some BTS from my shoot and a sneak peek into the issue on newsstands 6/27!…
