Camila Morrone’s no stranger to headlines, as the girlfriend of A-list actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

The 22-year-old actress talked about how being in the spotlight has affected her as she sat down with WSJ Magazine for their Young Hollywood Portfolio, a feature on rising talents in film, music and entertainment.

Camila as she explained how she rises above the ‘judgment and negativity’ aimed at her to focus on the ‘joy of the craft’ of acting.

‘More exposure leads to more judgment and negativity,’ she told the magazine.

And Camila’s certainly gotten exposure since she she was first linked to DiCaprio in 2017. It seems as if things have gotten serious, as they’ve gotten to know each others families over the past few years.

‘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 went on. 

Still, she tries not to dwell on others’ negativity, saying she’d never let the criticism ‘take away the joy of the craft that I get to do.’

Morrone – the stepdaughter of Al Pacino- admitted she’s been ‘lucky’ to be able to hone that craft by having the flexibility to only pick projects she feels truly connected to.

‘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.’ 

After first starting as a model, Camila made her acting debut in James Franco’s 2013 film Bukowski.

For now, that means her former life as a model is being put on pause.

‘I think it’s hard for the world and also the industry to be able to see you as both,’ she explained.
