How is Lily Collins related to Audrey Hepburn? The complete detail of the actress's star-packed family!
Lily Collins has added one more project under her belt; The Emily in Paris star is set to headline Hulu's upcoming limited series, Razzlekhan: The Infamous Crocodile of the Wall Street. The actress is also serving the project as a producer. As Collin's fast-growing career becomes apparent, fans can't help but wonder how it all started for the 33-year-old, who, for one thing, we know, didn't intend to venture into an acting career at the beginning.
Lily Jane Collins, 33, is a British-American model and actress. She has been around the entertainment industry since 1992 and has only recently taken over as the next big thing. Collin's earliest work includes the BBC series Growing Plants and the 2009 sports drama The Blind Side, which catapulted her to mainstream cinema. Collins' striking resemblance to iconic actress Audrey Hepburn has often had fans linking the Blind Side star with the late fashion icon. Ahead is the complete truth.
How is Lily Collins Related to Audrey Hepburn?
Collins being the modern Hepburn has been a prevailing fact among her fans, but the actress's recent Instagram post had Lily's followers wondering if she was related to Audrey in any way. Collins took to her Instagram, where she boasts a striking 26.8 million followers, and shared a photo where she bore an uncanny resemblance to Audrey. Sporting a Cartier necklace, earrings, and a floral couture gown by Ronald van der Kemp, Emily in Paris star attended a Cartier event in Madrid.

In the few snippets shared on her page, Collins looked all glammed-up in classic red-lip, high bun, and curtain bangs framing her face. "Madrid magic last night with @cartier," the actress wrote. Despite looking like the modern version of Hepburn, Collins is not related to the legendary star. Hepburn was a British actress and humanitarian who died at the age of 63 in 1993. Remembered as one of the greatest female screen legends, she is survived by her son, producer and author Sean Hepburn Ferrer, and two more kids.

Collins, born in Guildford, Surrey, may not be related to Hepburn and her evergreen legacies, but the Blind Side actress indeed boasts a great star power and a family in showbiz. Collins has more than one family member in the entertainment industry. Her father is Academy and Golden Globe-winning musician Phil Collins.
Get to Know Lily Collins' Parents!
Collins is now a Golden Globe-nominated actress, but before she set off to achieve her onscreen dream, Collins was famously known as Phil Collins's daughter and a potential A-list star. Collins' father, Phil, 71, is a revered name in England and soft and art rock fans around the world. The Academy winner is profoundly known for leading the rock band Genesis and has also had a stellar solo career. Like every Hollywood royalty, Collins also went through the identity crisis phase, where Lily even considered dropping her surname to be taken more seriously and not live in the constant shadow of her father's fame.

"I remember being a kid at Disneyland with my dad and having someone come up and ask him for a photo. And I think I was just so confused because I was, like, well, Disneyland has nothing to do with him," the actress recalls. Collins goes on to admit that ultimately it was her father's work ethic and career that helped her understand the life of an entertainer. Lily's mother, Jill Tavelman, is Phil's second wife.
Tavelman is an actress and an architect. The Emily in Paris fame seemingly shares a doting bond with her mother. Collins gave her mom a sweet shoutout on mother's day earlier this year. Posting a few snippets from a family event, where the mother-daughter duo looked cheerful as ever, Collins wrote, "For all the memories, for all the lessons, for all to come, thank you. I'm so grateful you're my mom. I love you to the moon and back again. Happy Mother's Day today and always."
Collins has extensively chronicled her relationship with Phil. The Love, Rosie star penned her wounded relationship with her dad in her 2017 book Lily Collins Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me. Collins writes her dynamics with her dad have grown over the years, but it wasn't always amicable in the beginning. "Because my dad was often gone, I never wanted to do anything that would make him stay away even longer," Collins writes, adding, "It's taken me over a decade to resolve some of them (others I'm still resolving) and to finally build up the courage to speak my mind to him."
