The mom and daughter duo are "really close", but Lily told People that the Underworld actress "definitely would've preferred I became a surgeon".

"But I don't think that was on the cards — you wouldn't want me to be doing any surgeries. And I think she knows that!" she joked, adding that both of her parents have been "loving and supportive of me".

Lily is the spitting image of her mom, and the similarities were clear to see recently when the 23-year-old walked the red carpet for a special screening of her new movie in Los Angeles on Monday.

She put on a stunning display in a chic black suit by A.L.C. that featured a waist-cinching jacket with a deep V-neckline, ankle-length pants, and a pair of silver high-heeled sandals.

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent sees Nicolas Cage play a heightened movie version of himself, "unfulfilled and facing financial ruin."

It follows him as he accepts a $1 million offer to attend a wealthy fan's birthday party where a CIA operative recruits him for an unusual mission.

Kate and Michael dated for seven years between 1995 and 2002. The Serendipity actress later married Len Wiseman, and they were together from 2004 to 2019.
