    Lily Collins is looking all kinds of gorgeous on the cover of next month's Glamour magazine.

    The actress spilled to the mag about being gal pals with Jennifer Lawrence and breaking into Hollywood without the help of her famous father, Phil Collins.

    The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones star likened the film's fans with diehard Hunger Games devotees and gushed about Lawrence's blossoming career.

    "She's a friend, she's awesome," she said. "The choices Jennifer has made have been really interesting. And I love how she carried herself after her trip [going up onstage] at the Oscars. I was like, 'you go, girl!'"

    Collins also admitted that making friends in Tinseltown isn't as difficult as one would think.

    "Some of us started out getting each other's numbers in audition rooms because we were like, 'I see you all the time. Why are we not hanging out?'"

    But when it comes to her film career, the 24-year-old is quick to remind naysayers that she didn't land jobs simply because of her famous last name.

    "I always wanted to do it on my own. I never wanted anyone making phone calls. A name can open doors but there's a quote I like: Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open."

    Well said!
