Lily Collins forgives her dad, Phil Collins, in an emotional chapter in her first book.
"We all make choices and, although I don't excuse some of yours, at the end of the day we can't rewrite the past," Lily Collins wrote.
"I'm learning how to accept your actions and vocalize how they made me feel. I accept and honor the sadness and anger I felt toward the things you did or didn't do, did or didn't give me.
"I forgive you for not always being there when I needed and for not being the dad I expected," she added.
Lily Collins is the daughter of Phil Collins and his second wife, Jill Tavelman, who divorced in 1996.
The singer subsequently moved from Britain to Switzerland, which Lily Collins said had a harmful effect on her.
"I became extra careful about what I said and how I said it, afraid he'd think I was angry or didn't love him. And the truth is, I was angry. I missed him and wanted him there.
"I've realized that many of my deepest insecurities stem from these issues with my dad," the star said.
"It's taken me over a decade to resolve some of them (others I'm still resolving) and to finally build up the courage to speak my mind to him."
The "Okja" actress also said her dad's divorce from third wife Orianne Cevey fueled her onetime eating disorder.
She had discussed her struggle with anorexia in an interview with IMDb Studio in January while promoting her movie "To the Bone."
"It did require a different set of emotional skills, to kind of go back in time for me."
