AceShowbiz - Lily Collins is certain she had a "quarter-life crisis" when she turned 25.
The actress is one of the busiest young stars in Hollywood, having acted as a brand ambassador for Lancome and appeared in films such as "Rules Don't Apply" and "To the Bone", but despite her international success, Lily has experienced some personal difficulties, especially when she entered her mid-twenties a couple of years ago.
"Everyone in their late twenties goes through it a bit, because we're heading to the big 3-0," she said in an interview with Glamour U.K. "But I think I had a quarter-life crisis at 25, where I kept asking, 'Am I at where I wish to be at?' I never really set out as a kid with markers of when I want to get married or have kids. But I got to the age where you constantly compare yourself to your friends or other people in your industry."

Lily, the daughter of rocker Phil Collins, went on to explain that her celebrity status makes dating difficult too, and she has been rejected or "ghosted" without warning more times than she cares to remember. But she's still determined to stay away from online dating.
"I've never tried a dating app," the 29-year-old noted. "Lots of my friends have... L.A. is very much where I spent most of my time growing up, so I know the places I am not going to go to meet somebody and I also realise that when you're not looking, you find it."
