While there are TONS of “Cinderella” remakes/recreations, Camila’s is one of strength, courage and never taking ‘No’ for an answer.
Camila portrays the new-age Cinderella. This version of the beloved princess is an ambitious young dressmaker, whose dreams, “Dresses By Ella,” are bigger than the world will allow. With the help of her Fab Godmother played by Billy Porter, she is able to persevere and make her dreams come true.
The movie dropped on the streaming platform on Friday, September 3, and has received mixed reviews, unfortunately.
However, what is not mixed is Camila’s words she’s been sharing in her press interviews.
The Blast previously reported on how she admitted to peeing her pants at a One Direction concert as well as passing out right before taking the stage during the world premiere of her movie on Monday, August 30.
The “Havana” singer has been a treasure trove of relatability, and I can’t say I’m mad about it.
Her most recent admission comes in the form of a shot glass filled with tequila.
No, she wasn’t drunk or drinking while spilling the tea on her life, but prior to her first date with Mendes, Camila reached for a little “liquid courage.”
While appearing on James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke,” published on September 8, Camila admitted she ripped two shots prior to their first date.
Hilariously enough, right when she got into the car she proposed “we all get drunk.”
“I swear to God before Shawn and I’s first date,” Camila said, “I was so nervous, I took two tequila shots and sang ‘Defying Gravity in the shower.”
“Defying Gravity” is Menzel’s song from the Broadway musical “Wicked,” where she portrayed Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West.
“In preparation for dates for life,” Camila said this is the song she would sing.
Menzel was shocked to hear this was Camila’s go-to pump-up jam.
The “Senorita” singer then explained the scene in detail to her co-stars.
“So, Shawn and I have been talking for a couple of weeks now like, ‘Oh my god. Like, I’m so excited to see you. Like, I can’t wait to kiss you,’ all that stuff, you know what I mean? So, obviously, there’s just a lot of stakes before the first time,” she admitted. “Do I kiss him when I see him? I don’t know?”
By this point in time, or history if you will, the couple had already released and performed “Senorita” together.
“We were friends, but we weren’t together,” Camila noted.
Without missing a beat, Menzel quipped, “No one had seen each other naked yet.”
“NO!” Camila quickly responded.
Porter, Corden, Menzel, and Camila proceeded to belt out “Defying Gravity.”
It was a full-circle moment!
