In response to our report from the Hollywood Life Style Awards, a Racked reader thinks host Lily Collins was misinterpreted: "I believe she said 'Sometimes with names you just never know.' Meaning, that some names like Nicole Chavez are a bit more difficult to pronounce than others, particularly in front of a crowd full of intimidation... On a separate note, I had the opportunity to chat with Lily after the show and she is the most poised and humble young lady. Her authenticity blew me away, and Collins's genuine sincerity is precisely what this dwindling generation of young Hollywood is missing. OK, sounds like she really impressed the socks off of some of the attendees, but, really, is Nicole Chavez even slightly difficult to pronounce? [Racked Comments]
