InStyle's editorial guidelines Published on March 18, 2010 @ 01:47PM Pin Share Tweet Email Photo: Bill Davila/startraksphoto At last night's Missioni boutique opening we caught up with Lily Collins to wish her a happy birthday (she turns 21 today!) and ask her how it feels to be on the verge of major Hollywood stardom. "Less than a year ago I hadn't even been cast in The Blind Side," said Collins, who made her feature film debut opposite Sandra Bullock in the Oscar-nominated movie. "It's crazy!" Next up for the actress, who happens to be the daughter of '80s pop icon Phil Collins, is the horror flick Priest. "I play a girl who is kidnapped by vampires, but it's not a romance for tweens!" says Collins, quick to point out that there are few similarities between Priest and The Twilight Saga. Still, she does have an interesting connection to Edward and Bella; InStyle's 2008 Twilight fashion story was shot at her L.A. home. "I came home from school one day to find Robert and Kristen on this couch on my front lawn. I was so confused," she remembered. "I actually auditioned for the part of Bella. I was like, 'What a weird coincidence!'"
