The two are promoting their movie up to the film’s August 21 release. A source said, “They’ve been really good about doing the press tour together for their movie. They were able to stay friendly.”
Collins has dated Taylor Lautner and was linked to Zac Efron. Bower was previously engaged to his Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 co-star Bonnie Wright.
In a recent interview with MTV – Bower said the minute he met Collins at the Mortal Instruments audition – he felt at ease.
“And then the moment I got there, I felt sort of comfortable around you. I felt really just sort of like we’d known each other for years,” he said.
Collins shared, “I thought I had known him for years. Jamie had been someone I, from the get-go when they asked me about casting Jace, had put forward from day one. And before he even walked in the room, in my mind, I was really set on this guy coming in and blowing it away. And I hadn’t really met him before, and he came in and that was it. I think I knew before I think I knew.”
Lily’s rep had “no comment” when asked about the breakup report.
