Soon after Emily In Paris star Lily Collins introduced her ‘real age’ within the Netflix collection, the web is shocked over the seeming implausibility of all of it.
The actress mentioned her character at size throughout her interview with Vogue UK and was even quoted saying, “I don’t believe we’ve ever given her a specific “number” for her age, however I imagine that she’s fairly recent out of faculty. Maybe that is her first yr after commencement.”
She went on to say, “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.”
News of this magnitude left followers reeling regardless, and a few of them even took to social media to name out the actress and ‘gently’ remind her how mistaken she is.
One consumer defined, “Um @lilycollins, I’m not sure how to tell you this but a 22 year old with a master’s degree AND relevant work experience is either a genius who graduated college at 18 or is lying about her age…”
Others couldn’t course of their shock and easily exclaimed, “‘Wait – #EmilyInParis is 22-years-old with a master’s degree and running social strategy for multiple luxury brands in a foreign country?!?!?!?!”
Soon after the social media frenzy arose, the actress poked enjoyable at herself by backtracking from her authentic assertion and posted a hilarious gif highlighting her character’s response to being dubbed 22.
