    Lily Collins wishes she still had an English accent

    Lily Collins wishes she still had an English accent… admitting she forced herself to speak with an American drawl when kids bullied her at school in LA

    Lily Collins is sad that she no longer has an English accent.

    The 31-year-old actress was born in Surrey to musician father Phil Collins and mother Jill Tavelman, but moved to LA with Jill at the age of five following her parents’ split.

    Lily has now recalled how she deliberately altered the way she spoke in order to fit in with her classmates after they mocked her pronunciation.

    British born: Lily Collins is sad that she no longer has an English accent

    ‘I was the new girl with a very sweet, strong but specific British accent,’ she says in a new interview with HELLO! magazine. ‘I was trying to say the names of my classmates but I just pronounced vowels in a very different way and so I got made fun of.

    ‘I quickly realised I wanted to fit in. Now, years later, you’re going, “Oh God, I wish I still had that accent!”‘ 

    The starlet shared a fun throwback snap posing in front of the Eiffel Tower on Thursday taken before her Netflix show Emily In Paris.

    Taking to Instagram, the actress joked that she was in ‘full tourist mode’ and was unaware at the time that she was in fact ‘practising’ for her future series based in the French capital.

    Lily penned: ‘#TBT Full tourist mode. Little did I know I was practicing for @emilyinparis…’

    Lily’s 20.5 million followers were quick to react to the snap as they asked if she would be releasing a second series of Emily In Paris.

    One person said: ‘This makes me so happy!! So hopeful for another season!!’

    A different fan noted that there was only ten episodes in the first series and joked: ‘Episode 11 pls.’

    Little did she know! Taking to Instagram, the actress, 31, joked that she was in 'full tourist mode' and was unaware at the time that she was in fact 'practising' for her future series based in the French capital (pictured in Emily In Paris)

    Another follower commented: ‘Lily in Paris KKKK❤️.’

    While a different account added: ‘Waiting for 2nd season.’ 

    Lily herself is also hoping for a second series and she recently told Harper’s Bazaar: ‘I’m so proud of the way that it’s kind of globally reached every country, and that’s thanks to Netflix, really pushing it out there and believing in it.

    ‘And then to be number one in the world still, it is mind-blowing. All of us are incredibly grateful. And the cast and crew, we’re really hoping to get the green light for season two.’

    The throwback snap comes after Emily In Paris fans were left baffled after Lily revealed her character in the Netflix show is only 22-years-old.

    The actress said that the series’ protagonist Emily Cooper – who stars as an American that moves from Chicago to Paris for work – is ‘fresh out of college’.  

    Speaking to Vogue, the brunette beauty said: ‘I don’t believe we’ve ever given her a specific ‘number’ for her age, but I believe that she’s pretty fresh out of college. Maybe this is her first year after graduation. 

    Yay: Lily herself is also hoping for a second series and she recently told Harper's Bazaar: 'The cast and crew, we're really hoping to get the green light for season two.'

    ‘I want to say she’s like, 22-ish. She’s had enough experience at her company in Chicago to have earned the respect of her boss.

    ‘She’s gone to school for this, and she’s completed internships.’

    But fans were quick to point out their shock at the revelation, with one taking to Twitter to say: ‘Excuse me but Emily is supposed to be 22?! And get that job transfer to Paris fresh out of college? Alrighty then.’

    Another penned: ‘Honey she most certainly is NOT. Emily has a MASTER’S DEGREE she is not 22!!!! Lily Collins plz.’

    While another wrote: ‘She has a masters degree, financial stability, was engaged, had a very good job and experience and on top of that freaked out about having sex with a 17yo. Cmon, she’s at least reaching 30’. 

    The show follows Emily, a young American woman who is hired by a Paris marketing firm to give them an American perspective. 

    Netflix debuted the new series earlier this month, though it angered some actual Paris critics who dubbed the show as ‘cliche.’

    French commentators have slammed the offering for including seemingly every cliche trait about French people in the show. 

    Lucas Bravo, who plays Gabriel in the series, spoke with Cosmopolitan about how the show has been received by some foreign critics, and he thinks they have a good point. 

    ‘I think they’re right, in a way. We’re portraying cliches and we’re portraying one single vision of Paris,’ Bravo began.

    ‘Paris is one of the most diverse cities in the world. We have so many ways of thinking, so many different nationalities, so many different neighbourhoods,’ he added.

    Bravo conceded that, ‘a lifetime wouldn’t be enough to know everything that’s going on in Paris. It’s an entire world in a city.’  

    He said that the French critics, ‘didn’t understand the fact that it’s just one vision. They’re like, ‘Oh, this is not what Paris is.’ Of course. Paris is many things.’ 

    Emily in Paris also stars Ashley Park, Samuel Arnold, Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu and Bruno Gourey.
