Rachel Platten Can "Cry on Command," Says An Acting Career Is Possible

Rachel Platten co-hosted the Billboard Music Awards red carpet this past Sunday and it's easy to see why they asked her to do so: she looks great on camera 'cause she's gorgeous.  Does that mean that at some point, she'd like to get into acting?  She says, "Maybe."
