Lili Reinhart has people talking for multiple reasons. First, the 21-year-old actress who plays Betty Cooper on the CW’s Riverdale attended the Met Gala accompanied by co-star and rumored boyfriend Cole Sprouse. The Met Gala’s theme was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” and Lili stunned in a silver H&M dress, but when she walked the Red Carpet, people drew comparisons with the late actress Brittany Murphy.
The Internet exploded with everyone discussing the similarities between the two. Though Brittany Murphy had brown eyes and Lili’s eyes are blue, the resemblance is uncanny.
Since appearing at the Met Gala, the Internet has become populated with photos comparing the two actresses and casting suggestions that Lili play Brittany Murphy in a documentary.
Some even suggested Lili was the reincarnation of Murphy but the timeline is off. Brittany Murphy was born on November 10, 1977, and died on Dec. 20, 2009.
Lili Reinhart was born on September 13, 1996, 13 years before Brittany Murphy passed away from pneumonia.
