Lily Collins believes ''every'' woman has ''a bit'' of Snow White in them.

The actress portrays the fairytale character in new movie 'Mirror Mirror' - opposite Julia Roberts as the evil queen - and she believes all females will be able to relate to the part because they have similar traits.

She said: ''Every little girl and every adult woman has a bit of Snow in them, and I think that everyone embodies that princess as a kid and has an idea of who she is. So I didn't want to try to make everybody happy with everyone's version of Snow White.

''I wanted to create a real girl that kind of had the same qualities but could be a modern girl that people are friends with. So it was just making sure that I kept her down-to-earth and not some caricature of some fairy tale princess.''

Lily believes the new version of the film - which is one of two being released this year - allows people to ''disappear'' into the fairytale world.

She added: ''I think that's also somewhere or something that adults and children can both enjoy on different levels and appreciate together, which is fun - especially in today's day and age, to go and disappear into a fairy tale for a bit.''
