“Lily Collins did everything except produce a biopic starring her as Audrey Hepburn. I know she mad Rooney Mara beat her to the punch,” Tweeted another fan. “lily collins this was supposed to be YOUUUU,” Tweeted another. While Collins may bear a more striking resemblance to Hepburn than Mara, it’s hard to argue that they’re in the same acting league. “Everyone saying if Lily Collins was busy… no she wasn’t, Rooney could do Emily in Paris but Lily could never do The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” One Twitter user pointed it out. “If I see one more tweet saying that Lily Collins would have been a better option to play Audrey Hepburn instead of Rooney Mara, I’ll commit a crime,” Joke another stan.
