AceShowbiz - Lily Collins stepped out for the European premiere of "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" in London on Wednesday, April 24. The 30-year-old actress flew back to her homeland of England earlier that day and arrived just in time for the premiere as her flight got delayed by two hours, so she shared on her Instagram Stories.
Lily looked every inch ready to pose for the cameras despite having to rush everything to make it to the special screening. The daughter of singer Phil Collins was stunning in a black sheer dress with quirky patterns all over, including sequined hands and a heart on her chest.
Her hair was pulled into a simple bun with a striking blue eyeliner to match the details of her floor-length dress and the blue carpet. She wore soft makeup with peach lipstick, and accessorized with a pair of dangling earrings and a statement ring.
Lily was joined by her co-star Zac Efron when posing on the blue carpet. The Ted Bundy depicter looked handsome in a blue and gold checkered suit, teamed with a white shirt, a gold tie, burgundy patent dress shoes and a gold wrist watch.
Speaking to reporters, the actor admitted he had trouble completely leaving the character on the set after he finished the filming for the day. "I've never played a role in which I really have to separate myself from when I go home at night and it was almost impossible. I'd like to say that I did it successfully but I couldn't," he said.
The movie has sparked controversy as it's accused of glamorizing a serial killer, but in Efron's opinion, it's another side of the story that drew his interest. He explained, "I really wasn't interested in playing a serial killer, I'm not in the business of glamorizing a horrendous person or his acts, but there is something unique about the way we went into the psyche of Ted, and his longtime girlfriend Liz [played by Lily Collins]."
"It's a different perspective and not your run-of-the-mill serial killer cliche, body count gets higher and higher and oh the guy you always knew did it, did it," he went on sharing. "This is what it was like to be there on the day, we didn't know if he was innocent or guilty, we just saw Ted Bundy through their eyes."
"Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" is directed by Joe Berlinger, who was also spotted among the guests at the European premiere. The movie is slated to open in U.S. theaters on May 3.
