Lily Collins Tells THR that 'THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS' is 'Sexier' Than Other YA Adaptations

At the San Diego Comic Con (on Friday), The Hollywood Reporter had a chance to talk to Lily Collins.
"It's exciting to see the excitement that people have about it," Collins tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I was in Dublin recently shooting a movie in the middle of nowhere, and these girls just come over to me crying and they just started screaming, 'August 21!' and I said, 'What happens on August 21?' I was totally in a different movie mindset. They're like, 'The movie!'"
In the Q&A section, Lily Collins talks about what sets The Mortal Instruments apart from other YA Book-to-Movie Adaptions:
The Hollywood Reporter: While these films are based on a YA novel, how dark is this world? Is this movie for kids?
Collins: It's really dark. There's humor in it, which I think makes it different than any other franchise. It has a comedic undertone. But the world is darker than some of the teenage franchises that we've seen. It's very goth and underground. So, probably not for the youngest viewers. I think it will appeal to them because the boys having their action sequences, but I definitely think it will appeal to the older groups because it's sexier.

Lily Collins Talks About Hunting Demons in Heels with Yahoo Movies

In Lily Collins' SD Comic Con red carpet interview with Yahoo Movies, she talks about how it's dangerous to hunt demons in high heels.
"Doing stunts in a basic top that's a dress and 5-inch, leather thigh-high boots, that's not normal," Collins said. "That's not easy. I didn't have any injuries, though. That was great."
"Running around in heels, being able to do all that and not injuring myself is kind of a boost of confidence," Collins said. With a smile, she added, "Every girl needs that experience."

Lily Collins Talks About 'Why She is Similar to Clary Fray'

The Mortal Instruments facebook page has an exclusive video with Lily Collins at -what seems to be- Wonder Con. In this video, Lily Collins' talks about why she is so similar to The Mortal Instruments' Clary Fray.
I'm very similar to Clary Fray in actually a couple ways, I like to think that she's a feisty go-getter and I like to think of myself in that way as well...

Lily Collins' Opinion About Clary's Red Hair Saying "My hair is red enough"

When the movie first started filming, a lot of fans were complaining about Lily Collins new red hair colour. So, Lily Collins and Cassandra Clare started discussing the colour issue. Cassandra Clare believes the hair colour is such a small thing compared to the whole plot of the book.
“Everyone was blogging, ‘Your hair is not red enough!’ and I was like, “First of all, you’re seeing me in the shade walking in Toronto, it looks darker but on screen with the lighting…” Collins tells us. “But when I asked [Cassandra Clare] about the red hair, she goes, ‘Well, I never exactly specified what colour red; that’s the fans.’ So that was a weight off my shoulders.
“I’m like, ‘Did I miss something, that they talked about how red her hair was?’ and she’s like, “No, you just keep doing your thing. Someone is always going to have something to say, but you were chosen for a reason.” And she had every faith in all the actors. So that was kind of the most important thing.”
Collins should know after all, as a self-proclaimed fan of the series long before the role came up. What she loved about Clary was how much she could identify with the troubled teen: “She is really close to her mom and this whole journey is about her quest to save her, and she’ll do anything she can to get her back. I’m so close with mine, so I saw myself in that position as doing exactly what Clary would have done.”

Jamily on Refinery 29's List of '10 On-Screen Celebrity Couples Who Make It Better IRL'

Who doesn't love the couple: Jamie Campbell Bower and Lily Collins? They are too cute together! That's why Refinery 29 has named them one of the 10 on-Screen Celebrity Couples Who Make it Better In Real Life. Here's what Refinery 29 had to say about Jamily:
Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower, City of Bones
Though City Of Bones isn't quite out, book series already has a cult-like following, is chocked-full of tons of brooding, and has a leading couple who is the real deal. Sounds familiar? Unlike another supernatural teen movie, this couple simply can't contain their enthusiasm when they see each other, which makes us even more excited for the film.

Tribute Talks to Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower About 'The Mortal Instruments: CITY OF BONES'

On Tribute's June 2013 issue, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is featured in the magazine. In Lily Collins' interview, she talks about what was it like having Jonathan Rhys Meyers playing her dad:
Jonathan is so talented, it ups your game. You know he intesified all of us and brought new things out of us, especially for Clary's character. He would improv a line when I wasn't expecting it, to scare me. It did scare me but then between takes he's like, "Are you okay? Let's work through this, let me fix your hair." He's a lovely man and he's the perfect choice for Valentine.
 In Jamie Campbell Bower's interview, he talked about the chemistry between the actors:
People can see it. I think it was one of the big reasons that I was put in this role, because at the time I went for the screen test, physically I wasn't the image of who the character is. I think the saw a connection between us and they were like, "That's it! They are the characters."

Lily Collins on 'Why Humour in THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS Sets it Apart From Other Trilogies'

While doing press for her new movie, Stuck in Love, interviewers want to ask Lily Collins about her other upcoming movie, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.

Empire saw a bit of The Mortal Instruments footage last week, and they noticed that there is a bit of humor in movie. Lily Collins explains:
That's what Cassie wrote the book -with so much humour. And that's what's different from the other trilogies and other series of books; there's this humour and realness to it. And our director, Harald [Zwart], really wanted to keep that their because what a lot of the fans love is that humour. And that's what sets it apart -not making it a comedy but, making it have those real comedic elements to a fantasy world because if you take yourself too seriously as a full on fantasy, sometimes, the audience forgets that there's a realness to it and the characters. And I think those moments of laughter break it up; kind of make it more believable.

Lily Collins Excited About Filming THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF ASHES Movie in the Fall

Lily Collins talks about how she loves action movies and never thought she would be doing one. The training for Collins was very intense, but it she said it was really fun and cool. The other Shadowhunters had a lot more work to do because Clary learns the "kick-ass" tricks half way through the movie. Collins also says:
I can't wait for the sequel because I get to do more of that.
