After candidly opening up about her sexuality, the 23-year old actress has now spilled the beans on how body positivity helped her shoot the scenes she wasn’t comfortable with.
In her recent interaction, Lili Reinhart shared why she was keen to do that bra scene on Riverdale. Lili said, “I don’t have the CW girl body — tiny waist, nice-shaped legs, skinny, small, tiny. I had to do a bra and underwear scene in this last season and I felt really insecure about it. I really, really didn’t want to do it. I didn’t tell anyone this. I wasn’t pressured into doing it. I did it because it was my job. But I felt bad about myself doing it.”
Reinhart also added how bad she felt about doing the scene and how it all got complicated. Lili later confessed that she can’t preach body positivity if she doesn’t practise it.
The actress mentioned, “I felt it was important for me to do the scene anyway in my bra and underwear so people could see my body as it was.”
Riverdale star then went forward and did the scene in her bra and underwear so people could actually see her body the way it actually is.
She said, “I did it for the people who feel like they need to look a certain way.”
Speaking of coming out as a bisexual, Lili said that she always thought to herself whether she likes girls or not.
But she grew older the answer became a clear ‘yes’.
Well, Lili Reinhart’s fans will surely be proud of their favourite star for preaching them body positivity and how one’s sexuality should not act as a roadblock in their life.
