Guest of the «Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon», the 33-year-old actress, protagonist of the successful Netflix series, told of the difficulties encountered during filming because of the Parisian cobblestones, which put her feet to the test
As the wise man says, “if you want to appear beautiful, you have to suffer a little”. You know something about Lily Collins that during the filming of «Emily in Paris» — the very popular Netflix series, which was recently renewed for a third and fourth season — she had to sacrifice comfort in the name of style. With painful consequences for her poor feet, because of her high heels. “Honestly, I would go all over the world if I could,” replied the 33-year-old actress, host of the “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”, when the host told her that the public was petitioning online to have Emily in different cities (from Paris ) —. But the only thing is that I want to go to the streets where I can wear flats, why wear heels… In the sense that you would never imagine how painful it can be (wearing heels) in Paris. In fact, I had to go to a podiatrist every week to get my feet fixed because I always wore heels.”
Blame the cobblestones of the Parisian streets, which make it very difficult (understatement) to walk on stilts. “Pebbles are really everywhere – Collins explained – and I had to use special insoles for each pair of shoes. I’m not kidding. I felt old.” Still prompted by Fallon, who jokingly advised her to suggest to the writers to make a season in which Emily only wears sneakers, the actress replied laughing «Yes, “Emily in Flats”! Why not?”.
However, according to Patricia Field, costume designer of the series, Collins did not seem to have major problems walking around Paris in stiletto heels. «She expressly requested to wear Christian Louboutin shoes on the set, to hell with the streets with cobblestones – Field had in fact told Page Six – and I guess she made it (to keep them), since he never showed any difficulty in movement». As a good actress, Collins must have learned to suffer in silence.
