Camila Cabello, the 26-year-old singer and actress, made a fashionable appearance at the premiere of "Rob Peace" during the 2024 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. She donned a stylish denim dress for the occasion. Joining her at the event were co-stars Jay Will and Chiwetel Ejiofor, the latter also serving as the film's writer and director. 

Camila Cabello plays the role of the lead character's girlfriend in "Rob Peace" and disclosed that she was offered the part without the need for an audition.

Chiwetel Ejiofor revealed in an interview with Variety that he opted not to make Camila Cabello audition for her role in "Rob Peace." His decision was based on his conviction that Camila was the perfect fit for the project, having been thoroughly impressed by her performance in the Prime Video movie "Cinderella." This decision underscores the director's confidence in Camila's abilities and the impact of her previous work on his casting choice.

“I was struck by her charisma,” said Ejiofor, per Variety. He then addressed her. “I knew you’d be perfect for the role. I was thrilled when you said you’d join us on this journey,” he said.

“I was thrilled when you asked,” Camila replied.
