For an up-and-coming actress like Lily Collins, getting to work with an experienced and highly accredited star like Julia Roberts is the chance of a lifetime, which is exactly what Collins opened up about in her recent interview with People Magazine.
The pair star in the upcoming untitled Snow White movie, with Collins playing Snow White and Roberts portraying the Evil Queen. Collins spoke not only about how great it was to work with Roberts, but how skilled of an actress she is by getting people to actually believe she is evil! "She gave me goosebumps," the 22-year-old said. "She played the Evil Queen brilliantly. You forget that's really Julia because she's so good. Off camera, she's so down to earth and so sweet. We'd be shooting and she's being extremely horrible to me [in character] and once they yell 'cut' the first thing she says to me is, 'Are you okay? I'm sorry, I hate being mean to you!'"
Collins, who recently starred in the flick Abduction alongside Taylor Lautner, also opened up about her experience working with Roberts professionally, while continuing to praise her. "She's someone that I've looked up to forever, and to be able to be in a scene with her and watch her work is such an honor," she explained. "She's so funny and really brings an energy to the set unlike anything I've ever seen."
The untitled Snow White project, due in theaters this March, has some competition with Snow White and the Huntsmen, starring Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron. However, Collins explained what sets their movie apart from Stewarts. "I'm really excited for Kristen's version and I'm really excited for ours," she said. "[Our film] really made the fairytale story that we love come to life. There's a bit of everything in it. There's romance, lots of action, and it's a fun and it's a comedic adventure, too. There are some dark moments, but really, it's the fairytale story that's been updated and modernized."
