How Lili Reinhart Landing a Role on Riverdale Came When She Needed it Most and Her Newfound Fame. Plus She Models Fall’s Hottest Coats & More!
Riverdale beauty, Lili Reinhart, plays the good girl next door, Betty Cooper, on The CW’s hit series based on Archie Comics. She’s featured in the latest W Magazine. In an interview, she dishes on everything from how she got into acting, auditioning for Betty and how she’s handling her newfound fame. Lili opens up about living with anxiety and what she considers her worst panic attack ever. She also models the hottest coats for Fall in W Magazine’s “Ultimate Guide to the Best Fall Coats to Buy Now.” Check out a sneak peek of the interview with Lili below.
“The show took off in such a way that fame followed very quickly after, and it wasn’t really a smooth transition,” Reinhart said. “It was just kind of like, ‘Bam.’ It wasn’t a bad thing, but all a sudden, I’m doing all these things and a year ago, I was just starting to film season one, and two years ago, I was living in North Carolina with my parents.”
.. In 2015, upon turning 18-years old, she moved, by herself, to Los Angeles, living in shared apartments and auditioning as much as possible.
“I didn’t have a car, so I was spending $500 Ubering everywhere,” she said. “I remember looking at my bank account and seeing all of this money that I had saved acting over the course of many years just gone. I had so much anxiety booking work, and I spent almost five months holed up in this bedroom in this house just feeling anxious, waiting for my next audition, and not doing anything else. It was the most miserable time of my life.”
