Lili Reinhart Is Honest About Not Being A Size Zero And Being Shaped Differently Than Her Riverdale Co-Stars
Lili Reinhart is on one of the most popular shows among young people. Which is why the Riverdale star is being honest about her body size and shape.
Reinhart has been open about feeling depressed regarding being in the industry in the past.
After being asked by a fan to comment on what's it like to be a part of TV's most 'chiseled' casts, she tweeted: 'Actually, not everyone on this show is perfectly chiseled. And even I feel intimidated by the physique of my surrounding cast mates sometimes when I have to do bra/underwear scenes. I’ve felt very insecure due to the expectation that people have for women on tv, what they should look like. But I have come to terms with my body and that I’m not the kind of person you would see walking on a runway during fashion week. I have bigger boobs, I have cellulite on my thighs/butt, and my stomach sticks out rather than curves in. This is still something I struggle with on a daily basis.'
The woman who portrays Betty Cooper went on to say: 'And it doesn’t help when I’m being compared to other women. I have gained weight due to depression the last two months and I’ve felt very insecure about it. But I did a recent bra and underwear scene and felt it was my Obligation to be strong and show confidence in myself, looking as I do. And I want other young women to see my body on tv and feel comfort in the fact that I’m not a size 0. And I’m not a perfect hourglass shape.'
She went on to call out the industry for not providing accurate representation of what women's bodies are like and gave a shout out to Charli Howard for being a part of the change.
Her response went viral as fans and peers offered support for her brave response.
