Okay, Seriously, How Old Is Emily From ‘Emily in Paris’?
In season 1 of the Netflix hit Emily in Paris, one of the most confounding things for viewers—other than the way Emily puts outfits together and the fact that her Instagram following grew exponentially with only mediocre posts—is how old Emily is supposed to be. Emily’s age is not specifically stated in Emily in Paris (which is back for season 2 on December 22!), so fans are left to guess how old she is based on the context clues given in the series.
In fact, Emily in Paris star Lily Collins didn’t even know how old her character was supposed to be and mistakenly assumed she was quite a bit younger than would actually make sense.
“I don’t believe we’ve ever given her a specific ‘number’ for her age, but I believe that she’s pretty fresh out of college,” Collins told British Vogue in 2020. “Maybe this is her first year after graduation. I want to say she’s like, 22ish.”
However, not long after the interview was published, Lily walked back her words. The actor posted a GIF of Emily making a confused face on Twitter and wrote, “Emily looking at me when I get her age wrong.” She added, “Sorry, girl. You might not be 22, but I gotta say—you do act like it sometimes!!”
