Snow White Battle
Kristen Stewart vs. Lily Collins: Who’s the Fairest?
Lily Collins is ready to be the fairest of them all, starring as Snow White in the highly anticipated movie, Mirror Mirror. The 22-year-old actress graces the March cover of NYLON and opens up about her new film and how she doesn’t plan on ever being a tabloid party girl.

Although critics are already pitting her against Kristen Stewart‘s portrayal of Snow White, Lily isn’t letting it phase her, revealing:


“Growing up in the English countryside, I would go out into the fields and create my own stories, and I would run around as if I was in a movie. That’s why for me, playing Snow White was a crazy dream come true because I’ve always been someone who would read books and then go and make a movie in my head.”

So what’s next for her?

“I have no idea what will happen after Mirror Mirror, but I love that I can still do what I want to do on a weekend, like go to the flea market. I don’t ever want that to stop. I won’t want to suddenly have to sacrifice parts of myself, and I don’t feel like I am, knowing that people are going to be more interested in my personal life. I never did go out and party. I never did do the whole drinking, drugs…That wasn’t ever me and is never gonna be me.”
