One aspect of being famous Collins was prepared for was a loss of privacy. However, the actress says that doesn’t mean she’s willing to open up about her private life.
“I entered into this business knowing your private life can’t always remain private,” she said. “I don’t feel the need to profess anything publicly or confirm something that in a normal situation you wouldn’t have to speak out about. If I’m out and I’m photographed with someone, then that is what it is.”
Although, it did take a while to get used to said photographs. Collins recalls one incident that had her feeling a bit panicked.
“At that point I had only done two or three movies, but there were 15 people surrounding my car and I was freaking out. I found myself getting so stressed out that I had to force myself to put my seat belt on, because all I wanted to do was get out of there.”
