In 2005, Mirojnick worked on her first film, “Domino”, though her role was uncredited.
It wasn’t until two years later that she gained a bit of attention with her work in “Cloverfield”, which was created by JJ Abrams. The film was shot in a found-footage style fashion, following the story of residents in New York who experience an attack from a gigantic monster and other smaller monsters. The film was successful at the box office and received positive reviews, leading to a film franchise. In the following years, she continued to work on small roles, and in independent film projects.
In 2011, she gained another notable role as she was cast in “Friends with Benefits”, which starred Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, and follows the story of two characters who begin a sexual relationship, believing that it will not affect their lives as friends, but it all eventually leads to more serious feelings.

Lili is single, and doesn’t talk a lot about her romantic relationships; there is no evidence on her public posts that she is dating anyone. She loves spending her free time going out with friends.
