It seems Budding actress Lily Collins doesn’t mind getting bumps and bruises while fight/sword training for her new movies.
Lily, 22, has been taking martial artsÂ lessons to prepare her for the ‘Brothers Grimm: Snow White’, and prefers to look like she has actually been involved in a battle because it looks more realistic in the final film.
She said: “For Snow White it’s been very intense fight training and fencing for a few months.
“For me, I love just kind of diving into it. I don’t mind if I’m bruised or bumped or whatever. I feel like the more bumps and bruises I get, the more into it I’m getting and the more real it’s looking.”
However, the British-born star and daughter of singer Phil Collins did not get the opportunity to train at all for new action movie ‘Abduction’ – starring Taylor Lautner as a boy who discovers his own image on a missing person’s website – and had to test out a scene moments before shooting it.
She told MTV News: “I get physical in the film but also use my surroundings and take note and use my mind to get out of things, like my female smarts. I got to do pretty much all of my own stunts.
“I didn’t have training. I’d get to try things out a couple of times before we actually shot it.”
‘Brothers Grimm Snow White’ is expected to hit cinema’s in the summer of 2012. It has a rival though, ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ isÂ released the same month!
