The 24-year-old singer plays the title character in the film and has particularly celebrated the classic tale's "girl boss twist".
Camila - who stars in the film alongside Idina Menzel, Billy Porter and Pierce Brosnan - told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "This Cinderella isn't waiting for someone to save her. It's ambitious, empowered and there are no bad people in it, just people struggling with their own trauma and history. Many of the older fairy tales are written by men, so they give an outdated perspective on a story in which a woman is a protagonist. This is a necessary 2021 version of a fairy tale.“
Camila previously admitted she found it scary wearing a lot less makeup than usual in 'Cinderella.' The singer, who is making her acting debut in the new film, said: “The acting is in a movie so much rawer and unfiltered than when I do a performance on TV. First, there's a lot less makeup, which I found scary at first, and I think there's a big capitulation that comes with movies, like trusting the director completely. It's different than music, which is a bit more rigid and controlled and where you present yourself that way.”
