Lili Reinhart has always been very open about battling anxiety and depression and how difficult it is to be a young woman in Hollywood with the whole world scrutinizing you. We see, point blank, how tough it must be, as the 21-year-old is now forced to deny pregnancy rumors all over an unflattering picture that surfaced.
Someone took a photo of the Riverdale star that just so happened to show a little bit of a belly. People were quick to body-shame her and question if she was pregnant with boyfriend Cole Sprouse‘s baby as a result. But the blonde wasn’t about to let those haters win and she took to Instagram Stories to shut them the eff down.
“It’s unfortunate that one unflattering photo of my stomach circulating the internet causes hundreds of people to think that I’m pregnant,” she wrote on IG. “Nope. Not pregnant.”
She continued, “This is just my body. And sometimes I’m bloated. Sometimes and unflattering photo is taken of me. Sometimes I go through periods of time where I gain weight. My body is something that I will NEVER apologize for. My body will constantly go through change. And so will yours. And that’s fine. So let’s not put so much time and effort into caring about a stranger’s figure.”
Lili and Riverdale co-star Camila Mendes previously shut down a magazine for using excessive Photoshop to slim their bodies down, calling it “sad” that the entertainment industry continues to encourage “an unrealistic body image.”
You tell ’em, Lilz!
