When Lily Collins isn’t busy promoting her new Netflix film To the Bone, the actress is making time for some fun in the sun. The 28-year-old is currently in Ischia, Italy to plug her film at the Ischia Film Festival, and she took a break from the press tour to enjoy the water.
Collins was spotted taking a dip on Monday in a printed halter bikini with an interesting cutout on her chest (that must leave quite the tan line!). The star showed off her toned body after taking a dip in the sea, her hair slicked back with seawater. Collins wore little to no makeup for the occasion, and stepped with bare feet out of the water.
The actress has been hard at work promoting her latest film, in which she portrays a 20-year-old woman suffering from anorexia. The role was deeply personal, as Collins has opened up about recovering from eating disorders in the past. While the star used a nutritionist to lose and later gain weight for the part in a healthy way, she was worried that the movie could cause her to relapse.

“I was terrified that doing the movie would take me backward, but I had to remind myself that they hired me to tell a story, not to be a certain weight,” she told Shape. “In the end, it was a gift to be able to step back into shoes I had once worn but from a more mature place.”
