Lily Collins likes to get ''bumps and bruises'' when she is training for fight scenes because it looks ''more real''.
Lily Collins loves getting "bumps and bruises" while fight training.
The 22-year-old beauty has been undertaking lessons to prepare herself for 'Brothers Grimm: Snow White', and prefers to look like she has actually been involved in a battle because it looks "more real" 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 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."
