And it was easy so funny he's my typei love this guy It would have been weird [if he played the prince] because he's my boyfriend in real life. [But] he's the best and I think we really support each other and always want to see each other." And Camila also recalled how the 'Stitches' hitmaker surprised her on set one day during filming. "He surprised me the week of the prom and saw me do one of the scenes. So he was there from the beginning and gave me so much support. I'm fortunate to have some amazing people in my life." The 24-year-old pop singer said she learned "so much" during filming and found the director's take on the story inspiring.
