“I'm Emily, and I [was even] saying it wrong.”
During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Lily revealed the title is supposed to be said using the French pronunciation. So if you’re saying it right, then you’ll find the word “Emily” actually rhymes with the word “Paris.”View this video on YouTube YouTube/ The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon / Via youtube.com
"When we were shooting in Paris, we heard people referencing it as that more often. Because we're in Paris, [with] the accent, I was like, 'Oh yeah, it rhymes, that's cute'," Lily said. "[I] literally forgot about it. Came back home. It was never a big thing."
"I felt like I was one with every single other person in the world that found that out the same day," Lily laughed. "I was like, 'Wait, have I been saying it wrong?'... I'm like, oh my god, I fell for it!”
“I'm Emily, and I [was even] saying it wrong,” she jokingly continued. “I feel like that's actually something Emily herself would be like, 'Well, I guess I was part of the joke.'"
