• Lily Collins said she saw a foot doctor weekly while shooting "Emily in Paris."
  • The Netflix star said wearing heels around the cobblestone streets of Paris is "so painful."
  • "I just want to go to streets where you can wear flats," Collins said on the "Tonight Show."

Lily Collins said she needed to visit a foot doctor weekly while filming "Emily in Paris" because of how painful it was wearing heels around the city's cobblestone streets. 

In a YouTube clip from her appearance on "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, the Netflix star was asked by the host what she made of online petitions to have her character Emily travel to different cities around the world. 

The 33-year-old actress, who got married to her director husband Charlie McDowell in September, seemed largely receptive to the idea of taking "Emily in Paris" international, with a certain style condition. 

"Honestly, I would go all over the world with it, if I could," she said. "But the one thing is, like, I just want to go to streets where you can wear flats — because wearing heels, I mean, you wouldn't think how painful that can be in Paris."

"I actually literally went to a podiatrist every week to fix my feet because I was wearing heels all the time," Collins said.

"Because it's like cobblestones everywhere," Fallon responded. 

"Everywhere, everywhere," she added. "I had to have, like, insoles made for every pair of shoes."

Fallon suggested Netflix should do a season where Emily just wears sneakers, to which Collins replied: "Emily in Flats."

But a switch to anything but a heeled shoe would be a major change to the character of Emily, who's known for her colorful and memorable outfit ensembles. Speaking to Glamour magazine prior to the release of the show's second season in December 2021, famed costume consultant Patricia Field said Emily's vibrant wardrobe channels her outgoing and daring personality. 

"The key themes that Emily comes back to is optimism and individuality," Field said. "Emily doesn't follow trends."

"If I could ascribe a trend to Emily it would be the above plus colorful and accessorized," Field, who is also known for her costume work on "Sex in the City," added.
