Before landing this role, Corberó was most known for playing Ruth Gomez in the Spanish series Física o Química (it translates to "physics or chemistry" in English), which is about a group of high schools students dealing with drugs, pregnancy, and their sexuality. In the show, which aired from 2008 to 2011, Corberó's character suffered from bulimia.

Of course, she considers herself a feminist.
In an interview with mujerhoy in 2018, Corberó explained why she considers herself a feminist.
"The grand battle [for women] is that maybe we need things to balance out a bit more so it can be equal. That's how I feel. Sometimes I hear people say 'It's that everyone's going overboard with feminism' and I think it's necessary because it's been so unequal for such a long time that it's necessary we go overboard a bit.
Úrsula Corberó is a member of the Beyhive.
In 2016, Corberó attended her first Beyoncé concert and documented the entire thing on Instagram while also praising the star.
"Sorry, I've been in shock for two days. Now I'm going to upload all of the videos. BEYONCÉ IS A GODDESS," she captioned the clip above in Spanish. Can you blame her?
