It makes sense that viewers might be curious about your love life when you are the leader of a program set in the world’s most romantic city. However, Lily Collins, who plays Emily in Paris, is far too grounded about love to proclaim it loudly.
“No relationship is greater than the one I have with myself,” the 32-year-old Emmy nominee wrote in her 2017 memoir/self-help book, Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me. “Can’t look to someone else to be my everything or rely on them to make me feel whole.” However, while professing her complete contentment with singledom, she also added optimistically, “There is someone out there who will show me what real, honest love is. They will respect and accept me for me and won’t make me feel less than. In order to find that person and truly let them in, first I must believe in myself and know my own value…I deserve happiness. I deserve to be loved just as I love others. I deserve everything.”
Collins received “everything” she deserved in September 2020 when her boyfriend, Charlie McDowell, proposed while driving through the American Southwest. They got married in the teeny-tiny town of Dunton Hot Springs, Colorado, a year after they had returned to the Southwest.
