What was Lily James' first reaction to landing the lead role in Disney's new Cinderella film? "I was so excited," the 25-year-old actress gushed to E! News yesterday at the Hollywood premiere of Cinderella. "I think I screamed on the phone when [director Kenneth Branagh] told me. I was totally overwhelmed and then I was really scared and then I was excited again then I was scared again. It went around in a circular motion like that for a long time and still is." You'd think the biggest perk of playing Cinderella would be getting the chance to wear her famous glass slippers, but James says that wasn't the case while filming this flick.

Guests were also treated to a supper buffet of such kid-friendly edibles as macaroni and cheese, penne pasta, kale salad with goat cheese and pretzels dipped in chocolate and candied sprinkles.

Cinderella is one of the most beloved tales in Disney's long history, and now, with the live-action adaptation of the classic story hitting screens, a whole new generation will get to enjoy the enchantment and wonder of this timeless princess tale.
One of the most spectacular and fantastical elements in the film is Cinderella's wish-granting fairy godmother -- played by Helena Bonham Carter -- and when all the stars turned out for the film's world premiere at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, they knew exactly to wish for if they had their own fairy godmother.
"I would ask for my family to be well, and healthy and happy for the rest of their lives," said star Richard Madden, who plays Prince Charming. "And an Aston Martin as well, maybe."
Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer had a similar idea of how to really make good use of a wish »
