Aubrey Anderson-Emmons may have started in show business at a young age, but she was truly acting when she played Lily on “Modern Family.” She was just in fourth grade when she told Smashing Interviews, ”I can be a little sassy sometimes like Lily, but mostly we’re not alike at all.” In a separate chat with Girls’ Life magazine, she admitted she doesn’t “relate” to Lily too much, as the character is known for being disrespectful to her parents and dropping dramatic one-liners.
Style-wise, Anderson-Emmons is quite a bit different from Lily, who was often portrayed dressed to the nines in dresses and other girly attire. Of her real-life look, she told Girls’ Life, “One day I’ll look more goth and the next more hippie.” In 2021, she told YayOMG’s Girls With Influence column that she likes to experiment with her clothes and makeup. “Some of my favorite aesthetics are hippie/cottagecore, Y2K, and edgy,” she said at the time.
She also likes to change up her hair. A few months after posting the photos of her half-and-half hairstyle, Anderson-Emmons colored her hair a dark red, as seen on Instagram in March 2023.
