The actress has responded to a user who has complained that the fiction sends messages unrealistic about the physical.
Stereotypes physicists are implanted on television practically since the birth of this format, but there are some who would expect that in full 2020 have already been exceeded certain clichés. This is what defends a Twitter user, who has used the social network to complain of the choice of the protagonists of Riverdale. In your opinion, “each and every one” of the members of the series is a person “over 25 years” which he plays a teenager with a body “perfectly chiseled”.
Lili Reinhart, the actress who plays Betty Cooper, has decided to answer and have been assured that you do not feel that sculpted body that speaks. Instead, they feel vulnerable in certain scenes and it has complex as around the world. “Not everyone in this series is sculptural. Even I feel intimidated by the physique of my fellow men when I have to do scenes in his underwear“.
I have felt unsafe due to the expectation that people have about women in television, on what they should be. But I have accepted my body and I’m not the type of person you’d see walking on a catwalk during fashion week. I have larger breasts, cellulite on thighs and buttocks and my stomach sticks out instead of curl
Reinhart has made it clear with these messages that it does not belong to that group of great physicists that speaks to the user and puts concrete examples: “it Is something that I struggle with every day. It doesn’t help that I compare with other women. I have gained weight due to depression I have suffered in the past two months and I feel insecure about it. But recently I did a scene in her panties and bra and I felt it was my duty to be strong and show confidence in myself, being as I am. I want other young women to see my body on tv and feel comfortable with that is not a size XS. And that does not have an hourglass shape perfect”.
The interpreter believes that there is still much work to be done, but is thankful for what they have done, several of the women to solve the problem: “This industry struggle with some accurate representations of the bodies of women and men. So, I congratulate the women who have helped our industry take a step in the right direction and authentic. (Charli Howard, you are my role model favorite)”.
