Lily: I read killer Bundy love let­ters

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - BY DAVID STEPHEN­SON

LILY Collins met se­rial killer Ted Bundy’s ex-girl­friend and read their love let­ters so she could play her in a movie.

Lily, 30, daugh­ter of singer Phil, said she vis­ited El­iz­a­beth Kloepfer to be “truth­ful to her story” in Net­flix film Ex­tremely Wicked, which is re­leased on Fri­day.

She said: “She showed us signed love let­ters. She also told all these se­crets. Some she asked for me to keep pri­vate, and oth­ers I could use for the char­ac­ter.”

Zac Efron, 31, plays Bundy, and when a trailer came out last week many ar­gued his per­for­mance had “sex­u­alised” the killer.

Days be­fore ex­e­cu­tion by elec­tric chair in 1989, Bundy con­fessed to killing 30 women – but the to­tal could be far higher.
