Lili Reinhart opens up about her ‘heartbreaking’ struggle with body image

The actress recently opened up about her struggle with self-image, channelling her thoughts into an Instagram post. "I've been struggling with obsessive thoughts about my body/weight the last few months and it's gotten pretty severe in the last week," she wrote. "So, I want to take a moment to be vulnerable and share this in hope that any of you who are also struggling don't feel so alone." The Riverdale star added, "I'm here with you. It's challenging to look at your body with love instead of criticism. I didn't think being in this industry, that is so obsessed with women’s bodies and weights, could ever mess with my own body acceptance and positivity…but it has. I wish I hadn't grown up in a time where the media worshipped only one size of women." And although her journey is a continuous process, she hopes to one day learn to fully celebrate her beautiful self. Reinhart also opened up about the emotional toll stemming from her experience. Through the years, Reinhart has been vocal about her mental health and body image battles with the hope of spreading awareness.
