By Sophie Schillaci ,  The Hollywood Reporter

The Hollywood Reporter -- Lily Collins has worked with some fierce females in her brief career, including Sandra Bullock (during Bullock's Oscar-winning turn in The Blind Side), Julia Roberts (Mirror Mirror), Sigourney Weaver (Abduction) and Julianne Moore (The English Teacher).

And with just seven films on her resume so far, Collins has already re-teamed with multiple co-stars, including Nathan Lane and Greg Kinnear.

Asked who she hopes to reunite with next, the 24-year-old has no hesitation.

 I want to work with Sandy again, she tells The Hollywood Reporter.  Every time I see her, she never changes. She s the most humble, funny, motherly human being.

Collins, whose roles have been mostly dramatic thus far, says she d like to flex her funny bone with some help from the Miss Congeniality star.

 I would love to do a comedy with her. I think that d be so much fun, Collins muses, adding with a laugh:  Every time I see her, she introduces me to somebody and she s like, &lsquoHave you met my teenage daughter? My valley daughter Lily? 

Collins, whose real life parents are Phil Collins and Jill Tavelman, is currently promoting The English Teacher and Stuck in Love, while The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is set for a summer release. Bullock, meanwhile, has The Heat  co-starring Melissa McCarthy -- coming in June and the sci-fi thriller Gravity  opposite George Clooney  due out in October.

When it comes to potential new co-stars, Collins has big aspirations.

 I m just going to sound so typical  there s three people that I would love to work with, she says.  One is the ultimate, Meryl Streep. Johnny Depp&hellipand I love Colin Firth.

On second thought, she adds Natalie Portman.

 I think she s just a fantastically, grateful human being, Collins says of the Black Swan star.  It s funny because those four people, I feel like when you re watching them, you re not watching those people play something else. You re really watching a transformation into somebody else.
