The 22-year-old is part of WSJ Magazine’s Young Hollywood Portfolio and joins Euphoria’s Alexa Demie, 28 and 13 Reasons Why’s Alisha Boe, 21, who were named the magazine’s rising stars of 2019 in music, film and entertainment.

The model-actress grabbed plenty of attention when she was first associated with Leonardo in 2017. “It's a little bit of a bummer because you're really trying to do good work and be nice and be a good person, and in the meantime...people wish negative things upon you,” she continued.

But Camila isn’t allowing the negativity to get in her way of becoming a movie star. During her interview, the starlet shared she tries not to let others’ criticism “take away the joy of the craft that I get to do.”

“I'm really lucky in the sense that I have the privilege of being able to pick and choose what I do,' she said. “[I] only pick projects I really love and feel I can bring something to and I can learn from,” she added. “I think it's hard for the world and also the industry to be able to see you as both.”
