Cinderella is the reason little girls dream about glass slippers before dreaming of Louboutins. She's also a reminder that mean girls often
the ones who get a happy ending — even if they have the upper hand.
Although she is one of the more beloved Disney princesses, there remain many things that people don't know about her. So get ready to get schooled on a few things about the gorgeous Cinderella:
1. Cinderella is a pioneer for princesses like Tiana, Rapunzel, and
Kate Middleton. Why? She\'s the first Disney Princess to marry into a royal family instead of inheriting the throne.
2. You may have forgotten but she isn\'t really a blonde. In the movie, her hair was a dark orange but she appears a fair blonde all over her merchandise. Yeah, she\'s just a fictional character but it would have been nice to let the red heads have this one.
3. Her shoe size is a petite 4½ according to the third installment of her movie franchise. We suppose being light as a feather is the reason those precious glass shoes don\'t break.
4. The meaning behind Cinderella\'s name was changed. The title of the original French story, "Cendrillon" or "little ash girl", comes from her character being covered by ashes and cinders. "Cinder-clod" was the name for her character that was rudely given to her by her youngest stepsister; although Cinderella did have the messy job of cleaning up after her family, we never really see her covered in dirt.
5. Who knows why Disney likes to keep their princesses so young, but Cinderella is the oldest at the grand ol\' age of 19. This is definitely surprising since women aren\'t expected to walk down the aisle as a teenager anymore yet Disney continues the young bride tradition, but it is what it is.
6. The big movie star also had a few cameos in a short called
The Art of Vacationing, where Goofy tries to see her at a meet and greet. She is also in Teacher\'s Pet and Mickey\'s April Fools.
7. Prince Charming\'s voice belongs to Mike Douglas of
The Mike Douglas Show. Yeah, you might have to Google that one ...
Frozen\'s "Let It Go" out of your head by listening to a deleted song from Cinderella. It\'s called "Dance On A Cloud", and you can find it here.
Sleeping Beauty, and Anita in 101 Dalmatians are modeled after Helene Stanley. That\'s why they are all skinny, graceful, and so gosh darn pretty!
10. The song "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo" was everywhere after the movie\'s release like "Let It Go." Some things never change. Perry Como\'s version, however, was the one that blew up.
11.There is going to be another adaptation of the story next year. Lily James, who plays
Downtown Abbey\'s resident flapper girl, is starring as the princess we all know and love.
31 Funny Love Quotes From Comedians
"I look for an interesting supporting part about once a year. That's the most I can manage. Some women can do it and that's fantastic, but I can't. You make choices as a wife and mother, don't you? You can't have it all. I don't care what it looks like," she said in an interview with U.K.’s
, she said, "I'll probably get kicked out of our school for admitting this, but I let Apple stay home yesterday. I just needed to be with her. We went out to lunch, we went to the beauty salon, we were together."
3. Workouts come first because, duh. What\'s your excuse?
"Every woman can make time — every woman — and you can do it with your baby in the room. … There have been countless times where I've worked out with my kids crawling around all over the place. You just make it work, and if it's important to you, it'll be important to them," she said in 2010.
4. Being a working mom is, like, crazy hard. Boo hoo hoo.
"I do feel so guilty and, like, What am I doing? but I also want them to know work is really fun for me — 'Hey, look what I get to do!' As opposed to feeling like, 'Oh, I'm a terrible mother.' Because that really just doesn't get you anywhere. It doesn't get them anywhere," Paltrow said to
5. She\'s not THAT rich and famous—when compared to Bey and Jay.
"The great perk of being their friend is that I have a relationship with people who have similar … I mean, obviously I'm not as famous or as successful as they are, but I do have a life in the public eye and I do sort of have people to walk through life with in that capacity," she said. "They're very kind and loving people and it also means I get to be around their daughter, who I love so freaking much!"
We all laughed when she referred to her split from Chris Martin as "consciously uncoupling." Now, she’s realizing how cuckoo she can be. "It's working, but it is kind of a goofy term," she recently said.

9. Stop complaining and we’ll stop judging. Deal?
"I think we are all genuinely doing our best, it's hard to have children and a career, and all some women seem to do is judge other women's choices," Paltrow said to
, which really got an earful during this interview. "I find that demoralizing and unhelpful."
10. Oh please. This is like comparing apples and oranges.
"I think it's different when you have an office job, because it's routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening," she said. "When you're shooting a movie, they're like, 'We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,' and then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult. I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it's not like being on set."
"As the mommy wars rage on, I am constantly perplexed and amazed by how little slack we cut each other as women," she wrote in a Goop newsletter. "Is it not hard enough to attempt to raise children thoughtfully, while contributing something, or bringing home some (or more) of the bacon? Why do we feel so entitled to opine, often so negatively, on the choices of other women?"
"She's French, so she's teaching them French, and their previous nanny was Spanish, so they're fluent in Spanish."
“I love the English way, which is not as capitalistic as it is in America. People don't talk about work and money; they talk about interesting things at dinner parties. I like living here because I don't tap into the bad side of American psychology, which is 'I'm not achieving enough, I'm not making enough, I'm not at the top of the pile.' It's just kind of like, I am."
