Lily Collins Is Releasing a Memoir: "It’s Definitely Like Having My Diary Published"
Lily Collins can now add author to her résumé! The Mirror Mirror star revealed on Instagram Monday that she wrote a new book, a memoir entitled Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me. “I get to share a secret with you that I’ve wanted to for so long, and the day is finally here,” she told her followers. “I wrote a book, and here it is.”
“I want to thank you all for inspiring me to write it, because I kept hearing about all of your stories, and I thought that if you’ve brave enough to share yours, I need to be brave enough to share mine,” the 27-year-old actress said in the video.
In the caption, she explained that the memoir, a “labor of love,” gets very personal. “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,” she wrote. “You constantly remind me that all it takes is one person standing up and saying something for us to realize we’re never alone.”
Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me ($19; preorder via amazon.com) will be published through HarperCollins on March 7, 2017.
