“It was very useful,” Collins, 30, said Tuesday. “And she was so nice to her and her daughter Molly were so friendly and inviting to me and gives me material to look at and to speak to me and simply allowing me to ask questions.”
Although Collins said she was not sure if Kloepfer would actually be the film, because how difficult is the story, she was still supportive while they were working on the project.
“Within the filming process, she came and visited the set and was such a positive light on the set, I don’t know if one would expect that they are necessarily with what happened,” Collins said.
“She is so nice and she gave us her support,” she added.

Last week, Zac Efron, who portrays Him in the film, told reporters that he struggled to separate himself from his character.
“I’ve never played a role in that I really have to separate myself from when I go home at night and it was almost impossible. I would like to say that I have done with success, but I couldn’t,” Efron said on the red carpet of the London premiere of the film, according to the Daily Mail.
Lily Collins, who portrays Ted Bundy’s old friend and ex-fiancée, Elizabeth “Liz” Kloepfer in “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile,” said she met the real Kloepfer, who was “gracious” and a “positive” on the set of the film.
“I was not really interested in playing a serial killer. I’m not in the business of glamorizing a horrible person, or his actions, but there is something unique about the way we went to the psyche of Ted, and his old girlfriend Liz,” he added.
Bundy was convicted for the killing of three women and confessed to killing more than 30 others in the U.S. in the 1970s for his execution by the electric chair in January 1989.
“Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile” is a biopic about the Bundy’s life and is told from the perspective of his old friend and fiance Kloepfer. It is set to be released on May 3.
