Lili Reinhart Sets The Record Straight On Rumours She’s Pregnant With Cole Sprouse’s Baby
"My body is something that I will NEVER apologise for."
The Riverdale actor took to her Instagram Stories to smack down reports that she’s pregnant and to share a powerful message about the fact that women shouldn’t have to apologise for putting on a few pounds.
Let's get checking out a bunch of regular guys attempting to apply false lashes...
She began: "It's unfortunate that one unflattering photo of my stomach circulating the internet causes hundreds of people to think that I'm pregnant. Nope. Not pregnant. This is just my body.
“And sometimes I'm bloated. Sometimes an 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 apologise for.
She added: “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.”
One person who had her back 100% is co-star Camila Mendes who said that she was “proud” of Lili for being so forthcoming about her experience: “I used to fear the day that people start publicly criticising my body and commenting on my weight. I've suffered too much from my own self-criticism, and wasn't sure that I could handle it from others."
Concluding that we should all inspire women to “love” their bodies, she added: “Seeing somebody as beautiful as Lili respond to public scrutiny by preaching and practising self-love is all it takes for me to overcome that fear.”
