Wondering about Lily Collins' dating history? While we're all in the know with Lily's favorite Emily In Paris-esque lipstick, her past relationships may have flown slightly under the radar for some fans—especially after the 2021 announcement that she was officially off the market! So, here's a deep dive into her past romantic dalliances—from co-stars Taylor Lautner and Jamie Campbell-Bower to her now-husband, Charlie McDowell.

While we patiently await Emily in Paris season 4 to see if Emily gets her happy ending with Gabriel, Lily's own relationship status is not a mystery. The actress, known for her iconic, bushy and feathered eyebrows is now happily married to film director, Charlie McDowell, who she wed in 2021. He even accompanied her to the Emily In Paris season three premiere, where Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu—aka Sylvie's—outfits were flawless, as always.

But while we know Lily is wrapped up in marital bliss, who has the actress been linked to previously? A few of the names might surprise you—from everyone's favorite werewolf to a certain star-spangled superhero! Here's her full dating history...

Who is Lily Collins' husband?

As mentioned, Lily Collins is married to film director, Charlie McDowell, who, like Lily, also has famous parentage.

Lily Collins is the daughter of iconic musician Phil Collins, while Charlie is the son of rom-com legend Mary Steenburgen and British actor, Malcolm McDowell—you might recognize him from titles like A Clockwork Orange.

The pair got engaged in September 2020 and married a year later on September 4, 2021, in a secret ceremony in Colorado.

Lily announced their nuptials on Insta and shared a look at her trés chic (as Emily would say) Ralph Lauren wedding dress—take a look yourself...

Before sharing a loved-up dedicated to her hubby, saying: "I’ve never wanted to be someone’s someone more than I do yours, and now I get to be your wife. On September 4th, 2021 we officially became each other’s forever. I love you beyond."

Who has Lily Collins dated previously? From Taylor Lautner to Chris Evans...

While we know Lily is happily married, the actress has been previously linked to a few notable names...

Lily Collins and Nick Jonas

Before dating Charlie, Lily was linked to Nick Jonas in 2016, with the pair reportedly being spotted on dates. A source even told US Weekly: "Nick really likes Lily," but added that things were casual, "Nick’s single and having fun. Right now it’s not exclusive."

They swiftly went their separate ways with Nick soon meeting Priyanka Chopra, with whom he just welcomed a baby!

Lily Collins and Chris Evans

In 2015 rumors started swirling that Lily was dating none other than Captain America himself, Chris Evans...

The pair reportedly met at the Vanity Fair Oscar Afterparty and hit it off. Alas, their relationship seemed to fizzle, though interest in Chris Evans' dating sitch has not waned—especially after he seemingly confirmed his relationship with actress, Alba Baptista.

Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell-Bower

Yes indeed, Lily once dated Stranger Things star Jamie Campbell-Bower, who plays Vecna in the Netflix smash hit.

The pair started dating in 2012 after meeting on the set of The Mortal Instruments, but their relationship was a little rocky as they were on and off between 2013 and 2015, before calling it quits once and for all.

Lily Collins and Zac Efron

According to US Weekly, Lily and Zac—who famously dated Vanessa Hudgens—were an item in 2012. While the pair didn't work out romantically, they remained on good terms even going on to star in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile together, in 2019.

Lily Collins and Taylor Lautner

Lily and Taylor briefly dated in 2010 after starring alongside each other in Abduction. Giving an insight into the on-set romance, their fellow co-star Denzel Whitaker told E!: "It's kind of like that teenage love in high school. It was kind of like, 'Let's go on a date.' They were willing to go bowling.

"It wasn't all about the relationship, it was more about having fun with each other and I think any time that's the premise of your couple, it's going to go great."

Sadly, the pair split before the Abduction premiere.
