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.”

Collins told People that she delves into some “extremely difficult” past relationships in the memoir. “It’s definitely like having my diary published.”
