Breakthrough actress Lili Reinhart has made one thing perfectly clear ever since stepping into the limelight: she's not perfect and that's okay!
The star has continuously opened up to her fans about her struggles with body image, but predominately how she suffered from horrible cystic acne.
"I developed slight body dysmorphia--when I would break out, I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror for a couple of months at a time," she said. "I remember doing my makeup before school in the dark, which is an awful idea, but it’s because I didn’t want to see myself in that bright light."
"I have cystic acne and sometimes when I have a breakout it triggers me back to that time when I was a teen and I feel so self-conscious—like the whole world is looking at my bad skin. I’ve definitely not gone out of the house because of a breakout, which is horrible."
It makes us wonder what Lili was like when she was in high school. Well, she was honest about that too.
"I kinda had a stick up my ass, to be honest!" she said. "People thought I was bitchy because I wasn’t really trying to socialise or make too many friends, or step outside my comfort zone. But that was because I had social anxiety, which made me uncomfortable and a little withdrawn. People interpreted that as me sticking my nose up to them, which looking back on it, I understand. But it was definitely not the case.
"Going back, I wish I could have been in the moment a little bit more. I can’t change it, but hindsight definitely makes me appreciative of the moment now—even if it’s hard, or exhausting, it’s all a part of the experience."
