Personal life

When auditioning for characters of Latin American background, she has been told “You don’t look Latina enough.” Mendes is Brazilian American and identifies as Latin American. She speaks Portuguese

“I really appreciate how these two cultures created who I am. I am a Brazilian of blood, with all the extended family of Brazilians, but I was born and raised in the United States. When I go to Brazil, I feel like an American, and in the United States, I always realize the traits that make me Brazilian.”

— Camila Mendes, in an interview with People Magazine.

Mendes stated that she was “roofied and sexually assaulted” during her time at NYU, which inspired her to get a tattoo representing her commitment to build stability and safety for herself.

Mendes dated photographer and director Ian Wallace from 2013 to 2017. Mendes had begun dating Riverdale co-star Charles Melton by October 2018; they broke up by December 2019.

Camila Mendes Facts

She initially wasn’t interested in the role of Veronica as she felt they would be looking for white pin-up girl. But after learning that they were looking for a Latina for the role, she immediately called her agent to get her in the audition.

When she got the audition for her role in Riverdale, she was literally the last person they were going to see on the last day of the auditions. And, her agent had told her about the auditions just a day before.

She had to spend the whole winter break over agonizing whether she will get the role or not. For the final leg of the audition for Veronica, she had to give extensive screen tests with four other girls competing for her role.

Before she got her debut role in Riverdale, she had auditioned unsuccessfully for various roles for a year. Apparently, the problem was that she wasn’t as Latina as the roles demanded.

When she was 10 years old, she spent a year in Brazil with her parents.

Along with English, she can fluently converse in Portuguese.

She has struggled with bulimia starting from her time in high school.

Camila looks up to Rihanna for body positivity.
