Camila Cabello on How She Overcame Fear to Step Into the ‘Dream’ Role of Cinderella – Any self-respecting Camila Cabello fan knows the 22-year-old singer has harbored a lifelong obsession with fairytale princesses. So when Cabello had the opportunity to play Cinderella in a Sony Pictures update of the classic story, due out in Feb. 2021, it was an experience she couldn’t pass up. “It was one of those things that felt like God handcrafted it for me and was, like, ‘Here you go.’” Cabello tells Variety. “I just couldn’t say no.

Says Cabello: “For my first acting classes, I was, like, ‘What the f– am I doing here?

That’s the only technique he has for acting, as simple as it is.” – Read more at Variety
