Actress Lily Collins, widely known for her role as Collins in the touching football themed drama, The Blind Side, and Sam Borgens in the romantic drama, Stuck In Love, has recently taken the world of writing for a spin and is now a bonafide author!
The model and actress is now adding writing to her list of crafts and we just have to wonder, is there anything she can’t do? Lily Collins recently took to Instagram to announce her very exciting news, and we are just as happy as she is! Collins revealed that for the past year, she has been working to create her first memoir, entitled Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me. She posted the following heartfelt video to social media, officially sharing the secret that she “couldn’t be prouder or more excited to finally reveal.”
I couldn't be prouder or more excited to finally reveal this labor of love that I've been writing for the past year! Thank you for inspiring me to be brave, honest, and able to open up about the things we all struggle with: body image, self-confidence, relationships, family, dating, and so much more. You constantly remind me that all it takes is one person standing up and saying something for us to realize we're never alone. Can't wait for March 7 when I get to share with you how I've started #LivingLifeUnfiltered. You can pre-order it now — link in my bio… @EpicReads @MaraRoszak @MollyRStern @Naj_Jamai
Collins shared with People Magazine that “It’s defenitely like having my diary published,” and we could not be more proud of her for opening up and sharing her story in order to inspire others and show that “you can be given situations in life and turn them into lessons.” Her memoir touches on very personal aspects of her life, from heart-break to body image, and we are more than ready to support her through this journey of self-expression.
The 27-year-old star also could not go without thanking her ever-supporting fans. In her social media post, she stated, “I want to thank you all for inspiring me to write it, because I kept hearing about all of your stories, and I thought that if you’ve brave enough to share yours, I need to be brave enough to share mine.” Collins has gone above and beyond when it comes to inspiring others and being a great role model for those who support her, and she just continues to proves how wonderful of a person she is.
Lily Collins’ book, Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me., is being published by HarperCollins and will be available on March 7, 2017. We cannot wait to get our hands on a copy of her “labor of love,” and read all about her life of growing up in stardom. Also, if it happens to contain a few brow tips along with the life advice and sprinkles of humor, well then we definitely would not complain.
The Mirror Mirror actress explained the inspiration behind her enticing essays to People, saying “I was put into many situations throughout the years in acting, in Warren’s film especially, where you’re in an intense situation and you have to fight your way through it, go through the emotions, and live and breath those scenes.” With her new book, Collins is striving to reach out to young girls and many others in order to assure that no one ever feels alone or afraid. She wants her fans to know that she is with them and she hopes to be a presence of love within anyones life. Lily Collins wants everyone to live their life “unfiltered!”
Collins continues to inspire us through her many acts of charity, deeply important roles, and now her revealing but much needed memoir. We cannot thank Lily Collins enough for her efforts, and we are beyond excited to delve into her honest words. We encourage everyone to read her upcoming authobiography which you can preorder now here!
