    Lily Collins has been saying 'Emily in Paris' "wrong" the whole time

    The 31-year-old actress - who plays the title role in the Netflix series, which follows a woman named Emily who gets hired at a Parisian marketing agency called Savoir - has opened up on people using the English pronunciation of France's capital city, rather than saying it in a French accent so the first and last words rhyme


    Appearing on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon', she said: "So here’s the thing, when we were shooting it in Paris, we heard people referencing it as that more often.

    "Right? Because we’re in Paris and the accent. I was like, ‘Oh yeah, it rhymes. That’s cute.’ Literally forgot about it, came back home.

    "It was never like a big thing and then I felt like I was one with every single other person in the world that found that out the same day...

    “I was like, ‘Have I been saying it wrong?’ We’ve all been saying ‘Emily in Paris.’ I was like, ‘Oh my god, I fell for it.’ "

    Lily laughed off her mistake, and suggested even her own character would have used the "wrong" pronunciation.

    She added: "So yeah, I’m Emily and I even was saying it wrong. So go figure... I feel like that’s actually something Emily herself would be like, ‘I guess I was part of the joke."

    Her comments come after Netflix recently revealed fans had been saying the romantic comedy's title incorrectly.

    They tweeted: "Friendly reminder 'Emily in Paris' is supposed to be pronounced with a French accent so ‘Emily’ and ‘Paris’ rhyme.”

    Meanwhile, the streaming platform has renewed the show for a second season, and revealed the news by writing a formal letter from Emily's French boss Sylvie Grateau, informing her American boss Madeline Wheeler that she'll have to stay with the team in Paris a while longer.

    In the letter, Sylvie - who is played by Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu - wrote: "We hope that by extending her time in Paris, Emily will further the relationships she has already made, delve deeper into our culture, and perhaps pick up a few words of basic French.

    “We will work in conjunction with you on applying for a work permit on her behalf to prolong her time here. We love having Emily in Paris! But please don't let her know that.”
