and i love lily collins so much

I’ve always loved being active, and I used to do sports basketball, soccer, volleyball growing up. Now I love running, biking and swimming. I also go to these dance-cardio classes at Body by Simone. The trainers are so empowering, it doesn’t matter if you can’t dance well. I’ve always been a healthy eater. In England, it was basically eating at the farm. Bangers and mash, of course, but it was very much about fresh, healthy food. L.A. is ideal for that. I don’t eat red meat. I’m big on chicken, fish and vegetables. It’s a way of life for me. I don’t think about it as a diet. - Lily Collins photographed for the New York Times

I never enjoy anything. I’m always waiting for whatever’s next. I think everyone’s like that…living life in fast forward, never stopping to enjoy the moment, too busy trying to rush through everything, so we can get on with what we’re really supposed to be doing with our lives. I get these flashes of clarity, brilliant clarity, where, for a second, I stop and I think, “Wait, this is it. This is my life. I’d better slow down and enjoy it, because one day, we’re all going to end up in the ground,” and that will be it. We’ll be gone….So I think we should fuck.

so i just found out lily collins struggled with eating disorders (plural!!) when she was a teenager and she did a THOROUGH research for her movie and the director of to the bone has previously had an eating disorder herself and they still met with doctors and entire groups of young women who were willing to share/discuss their stories and actively sought out specialists so they can give their audience real facts instead of romanticizing the suffering of people who are dealing with/have dealt with eds. and i want to cry bc to the bone is going to be such a good movie and i’m going to bawl my eyes out but it’s okay bc it’s destroying the stereotype and finally shedding some light on the topic and i love the entire cast so! much! :’))))))))

I had read [The Last Tycoon] before, ages ago, so I reread it. I saw the movie version with Dustin Hoffman. I really just kept reading about the period as much as I could. I love watching old movies anyway–I grew up with my mom watching old movies and being immersed in the history of old Hollywood. So, for me, it felt like home. [My character Celia’s] mentality, her sass, spunk, and intellect is something that I could draw from many women in my life but also many real people that I had read about over the years.

lilyjcollins :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

What you’re gonna find when you press the little link-y thing down here is roughly #180 gifs of the lovely and ever cute Lily Collins! They are non-acting gifs and therefore she’s pretty much just being adorable in all of em’.

I certainly don’t own these gifs because my skills are SUPER lacking so give thanks and bless the souls who take the time to make gifs. 

Enjoy!

I’m going to say it. I miss the movie cast, and how the movie was filmed. It’s my opinion, so please don’t get mad. It’s not that the tv cast is bad, they’re great. I just liked the darker tone the movie had, it seemed more bad ass to me. The show is good, I just loved the movie so much, that it’s hard to accept this.
