Lily Collins Talks Dating Jamie Campbell Bower with ‘Seventeen’

by: on | in Celebrities | 8 Comments

It's starting, guys. The year of Lily Collins has commenced. After gracing the cover of Glamour's July 2013 issue, we said that you should expect to see Lily Collins on, like, all magazine covers thanks to this kind-of-a-big-deal movie, The Mortal Instruments. And we were right! Seventeen's taken notice of the 24-year-old star, and she's not holding anything back in her interview…

Lily Collins, Seventeen Magazine September 2013

By being the lead in the next blockbuster franchise, Lily will definitely be compared to Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart. But it's alright in Lily's book as she admittedly looks up to both of them: "I admire how they've both handled the fame that came with those roles and their ability to step outside those roles and do other projects. That's what I want to do: balance fun big movies with gritty passion projects I love."

But, unlike KStew, Lily's not going to keep her relationship to herself. When asked about her on- and off-screen love, Jamie Campbell Bower, she says, "We've made a conscious decision to go out and live life. I'm not one to hide anything, but I don't feel the need to comment directly on it… I think it would be a shame to not live in the moment and not enjoy everything that’s happening in fear of other people’s opinions."

For more on Lily's interview, go to or pick up the September issue of Seventeen, on newsstands July 6.

    They did interviews for Comic-Con together and looked absolutely perfect. In one interview, the cast even all moved over so Lily could sit next to Jamie. That doesn’t sound very broken up to me. Even if they are, it really isn’t our business.

    • Kristina

      All Kevin did was move so she could have room, not so she could sit next to Jamie. It’s pretty clear they’re broken up. There’s tension between them that was never there before the Zina photos appeared and it isn’t a good tension.

  • CK

    Are we seriously still going on about this issue? It’s been weeks!

  • Sammy

    Can’t wait to get this issue!

  • Prince

    It’s painfully obvious that they are no longer dating. :( (separate planes, pics of Jamie kissing some other girl, Lily out with friends after SDCC, no picks of them actually out together since May) So sad, because they have to spend a lot of time together promting the movie, and then to start filming again. Would like to see them get back together!

      Erm.. they are together?
      Jamie’s pics with that other girl were a photoshoot (this was confirmed by the photographer)
      And lily is allowed to go out without her boyfriend you know, they aren’t joined at the hip.

      They were seen together yesterday holding hands and coming out of the same hotel together today..
      Plus they are on tour promoting TMI for a month so I highly doubt they would look so comfortable around each other in all these mall pics from yesterday if they had broken up.

      They are sweet together and people should really leave them to it.

      I agree with Prince. This interview was done months ago and they’ve obviously split up since. Unless it’s work related I’ve noticed she’s keeping a buffer between the two of them. On the plane at Comic-Con she sat next to Kevin and on the way back she sat next to Robert. She flew separately to the Mall Tour and in the private dinner pics Kevin posted she is sitting next to Kevin. They haven’t been seen together once in the last few months aside from professional commitments even though they are both in LA. I feel bad for Lily as she’s always been super private and this is the first boyfriend she was more open about.

      That photoshoot story about Jamie kissing the other girl sounds like a BS excuse to me. I don’t believe it for a minute. They are all staying at the same hotel and going to the same events so obviously both Jamie and
      Lily will be seen leaving the hotel. There are no credible sightings of them holding hands or anything remotely affectionate recently. They are both actors, grown people and Lily is professional so I’m sure they are smart enough to keep it cordial for work but relationshipwise they are obviously dunzo.
