Is Drake a fan of actress Bria Vinaite’s work — and her?
The “More Life” rapper was reportedly spotted with Vinaite at Sotto Sotto, a restaurant in his hometown of Toronto, earlier this week.
According to an eyewitness per Page Six, the two looked cozy and said “It definitely looked like a date, and they left the restaurant at 2:30 a.m. hand in hand.”
Vinaite is a budding actress and stars in “The Florida Project.” The movie depicts the lives of residents living on the outskirts of Orlando, struggling with poverty.
Drake is a fan of the film, writing on his Instagram page that it’s the best film anyone will see this year.
“It’s a situation that no one knows exists. I never knew about the hidden homeless situation until this film, and until Sean,” Vinaite said at TIFF. “There are so many things we don’t know about because they don’t get spoken about, and people might be embarrassed to speak up or might be shamed into not speaking up.”
The 24-year-old, who had no acting experience, was discovered via Instagram. She was asked to audition for the role via a direct message and ultimately landed the part.
Of the positive responses, Vinaite said: “I’ve been doing such crazy stuff. Stuff I’ve dreamed of and would just wanna cross off my bucket list. At the end of every day, I’m just like, ‘That didn’t happen.'”
The Sean Baker-directed film screened at the Toronto International Film Festival last weekend.
