Lily previously told Vogue France(via ET Canada) that she wanted to carve her path to success without using her father's influence.

It was out of the question that people would think that I use a free pass thanks to my name. I'm proud of my dad, but I wanted to be me, not just his daughter. For that, I was ready to wait to break through...I love to sing. But as I wanted to make my own way, far from the paternal genius—I preferred to be an actress.

The Emily in Paris star married Charlie McDowell in 2021. McDowell is a filmmaker and the son of actor Malcolm McDowell and actress Mary Steenburgen. The couple have yet to reveal whether there will be any Lily Collins kids in the future.
