Mensagem:  "Actress" has been disappearing over the past decade or two. Jodie Foster calls herself and actor. I'm pretty sure she has seen herself naked and knows what she is talking about. Can a woman be a prince? Possibly, but not for the reasons you may imagine. The slang meaning of "prince" is a wonderful, generous, kind person. "Princess", on the other hand, is often used ironically to mean spoiled (mimada). But wouldn't a rose by any other name smell as sweet?
