Lily Collins Talks Fame in Lucky April 2014: I Never Understood The Word "Celebrity"

Posted Wednesday March 19, 2014 9:55 AM GMT

Adding another magazine cover to her credit, Lily Collins fronted the April 2014 issue of Lucky.

The "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" beauty looked absolutely adorable in designer duds from Bec & Bridge and Eddie Borgo for the Todd Cole-shot spread while she shared details about her career and revealed her true feelings about her famous eye brows.

Highlights from Miss Collins' interview are as follows. For more, be sure to visit Lucky!

On her career:
"I like disappearing for a little while. I always wanted to be someone who could take other people into a world with me. As an actor, I'm able to jump into a story and become someone else for a time. It's a beautiful journey."

On her fame:
"I never understood the word 'celebrity.' It was just part of my everyday."

On her tattoo obsession:
"I've always loved body art. I remember being with my mom on Venice Beach when I was really young and we walked by this guy on a Harley who was covered with tattoos. I was this little British girl, and I went up to him and said, 'Your tattoos are so pretty!' That was probably the last thing he wanted to hear. [When it comes to the pain of getting a tattoo, I think] Look, women go through worse things. Waxing hurts more than tattoos. And tattoos are permanent, so if it takes a little pain to get there, that's okay."

On her beauty routine:
"I've always been a big fan of 'less is more' - the idea that you can accept a little help to accentuate what you already and bring that extra sparkle. I like to save the dramatic moments for events or photo shoots. I like doing [makeup] fast. The more you have on your face the more there is to go wrong."

On her brows:
"Kids were commenting on them at school so I got the tweezers. [When my mom saw what I did] she was staring at me across the dinner table and said, not happily, 'You've changed something about your face.' Brows are the statement piece of the face, and I've learned to embrace mine over the years. And I guess they speak for themselves now that they apparently have their own Twitter account."
