Lili Reinhart: ‘My skin has caused me a lot of anxiety and sadness’

lili-reinhart2 - Lili Reinhart: ‘My skin has caused me a lot of anxiety and sadness’

On struggling with acne:

“My skin has caused me a lot of anxiety and sadness. I have a specific type of body dysmorphia that stems from acne. I see any acne on my face as an obsessive thing. [It’s] the only thing I can think about, and it makes me want to hide.”

On a surprising #breakoutbuddy:

“Lorde actually messaged me on Instagram when I had spoken out about my acne,” she says, “and she was like, ‘Girl, I feel you. I’m totally on the same page as you.’ It was really comforting and very sweet of her.”

On coping with camera phones and paparazzi:

“It’s only been two years that I’ve been semi in the spotlight, and it still pisses me off so bad when I see someone trying to sneak a photo of me,” she says. The idea that she can be photographed whenever, wherever, makes her feel “like a zoo animal.”

On feeling insecure:

“Sometimes I feel like I look like s—. Sometimes I don’t want to talk to anyone. And it’s like, I’m allowed to have those days. I’m not going to apologize for that.”

… says the 22 year-old Riverdale actress.

I believe her Twitter and Instagram have photos with her acne. These are all shots from promotional events and awards shows, so of course her face will look “flawless” because of make up.

She did say it was body dysmorphia type thing. Everyone else thinks she looks fine but in her head she sees nothing but acne. Mental disorders can mess up your perception of self and the world around you.

She sounds like a difficult person. These girls should understand one thing: if you want to make it in the entertainment business, you have to become a public figure. That alone means waving your right of being just another ordinary uninteresting person whose life will just go about regularly without any paps wanting to snap pics of you. If she wants to have a job, she needs to invest in her most prized possession: her image as a brand.
