Lily Collins

Lily Collins never set out to be famous.

The 'Mirror, Mirror' actress - daughter of singing legend Phil Collins - says she always wanted to be in movies but was doing it because she loved acting not to become a tabloid star.

She said: "But the thing is, I was never looking at a strategic way of gaining fame. That's not why I'm doing this."

Being the daughter of famous rocker, Lily's childhood meant she was surrounded by superstars although she can't really remember anything.

She told the Observer newspaper: "I'm told more things than I actually remember, and now I'm running into these certain people who've seen me on billboards, and they come up to me and go: 'Gosh, it's so funny - I remember when you were on tour with your dad and I held you.' Like Elton (John) and people from that era."

And despite Phil and Lily's mother Jill Tavelman splitting when she was young, Lily insists she had a very happy childhood.

She said: "I know the truth and I know how it was for me, and I know how much I love my family - and that's all that really matters."
