Lexi Underwood might be the star of a new film about sneakers, but in real life, she would never judge a man by his shoes.
At the premiere of Sneakerella in New York City, my dealbreaker has nothing to do with physical. More what you got going on inside, according to Page Six.
If youre kind and you got something going for you, and youre respectful, I dont care what kinds of sneakers you have on, according to her.
The new Disney+ filmSneakerella combines New York''s street-sneaker lifestyle with modern relationships, and brings a contemporary twist to Cinderella''s classic fairytale.
El (played by Chosen Jacobs) is an aspiring sneaker designer from Queens who works in a shoe store that was owned by his late mother.
When El meets Kira King (Underwood), the daughter of Darius King, a basketball player and sneaker, sparks fly, and he follows his dreams of becoming a sneaker designer while trying to attract her.
Ive had a couple of other onscreen kisses, but Chosen was fantastic, according to Underwood, who rose to fame in 2020 for her role in Hulus Little Fires Everywhere. We had a great time filming, and he was very respectable. We were both respectful.
She added that the chemistry onscreen popped and I just saw that we had a great time.
Despite the lovey-dovey scenes, Underwood told Page Six that the film also has a strong message for young people.
I want people to be able to take away that you can do whatever you set your heart and mind to without anyone else''s assistance. My character isn''t the damsel in distress. She is someone who knows what she wants and is in charge of her own destiny.
She has no choice but to continue to give up her circumstances or beliefs in the long run. I believe that''s a true message for everyone, but especially for young girls.
Sneakerella, directed by Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum, is now available on Disney+.
