Lily Collins feared her eating disorder would stop her from having children.
The 28-year-old actress became anorexic and bulimic during her teenage years, and Lily has admitted the stress she was putting her body through led her to believe she may not be able to have kids of her own.
She shared: "My throat burned and my oesophagus ached. My periods stopped for two years and my life was out of control. I was terrified I had ruined my chances of ever having kids."
Lily Collins says 'To the Bone' represented a "form of recovery" from her eating disorder.

She shared: "It was a new form of recovery for me. I got to experience it as my character, Ellen, but also as Lily.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Writer and director Marti Noxon struggled with anorexia and bulimia for 10 years. It's her story, albeit a fictionalized version, that she tells in "To The Bone," a feature film coming to Netflix on Friday about a 20-year-old artist whose eating disorder has reached a dire point. Lily Collins, who herself has a history with eating disorders, plays the main character Ellen.
Lily Collins "felt very strongly" about appearing in 'To the Bone'.

She said: "As a young woman growing up, you set these standards for yourself as to what is perfect and ask, 'how can I reach perfection?' The older you get, and I know I'm still not old, you ask, 'What is perfection?'
Lily Collins is grateful to Warren Beatty for setting her off on a path of "weird" work choices.

‘Deadpool’ in, ‘Silence’ out and more Globes film surprises
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Hollywood Foreign Press Association never fails to disappoint with their assortment of nominees, which always seem to include some expected picks, some inspired ones and some headscratchers too.

With ‘Rules,’ Collins takes a Hollywood walk of fame
LOS ANGELES — For Lily Collins, who stars in “Rules Don’t Apply” opposite legendary Hollywood icon Warren Beatty and a host of famous faces, what was cooler — being there for this once-in-a-lifetime happening or the movie itself?
“They’re both really exciting, to be honest with you, but I think it was more me taking it in as Lily, being on a set with everybody,” she answered.
"Rules Don't Apply" feels unbalanced in terms of story, and it has a big sag in the middle. But the good things in it are so good that they make this movie a fairly worthwhile experience.
Written and directed by Warren Beatty, the film benefits from Beatty's memory of the era depicted, the late 1950s and early '60s, as well as his fidelity to it. That's a strong virtue, and it pervades much of "Rules Don't Apply," including the actors chosen and every detail of the film's look.

Fall Preview: Warren Beatty’s Hughes film finally takes off
NEW YORK (AP) — Warren Beatty is standing outside an early screening of his new film, "Rules Don't Apply" — definitely NOT a Howard Hughes biopic, he wants to make clear — discussing his connection to the famously reclusive industrialist and movie mogul.
"I never met him," he says, grinning. "And I met everybody."
