Riverdale actress Lili Reinhart, popularly known as Betty Cooper in CW's Archie comics-inspired series, came out as bisexual on June 3 amid the Black Lives Matter movement in the US. Now, the 23-year-old Riverdale actress spoke about her decision to publicly reveal her sexuality.
“I knew full well that I was attracted to women from a young age,” the actress recently told Flaunt tabloid. “I felt that since I’ve exclusively been in hetero-normative relationships, it would be too easy for any outsider, especially the media, to vilify me and accuse me of faking it to get attention. That’s not something I wanted to deal with. But to my close friends, and those in my life, my bisexuality has been no secret.”
“I felt that I wasn’t doing enough,” Lili said. “And I felt that it was lame to keep reposting what everyone else is posting so I asked myself: ‘Okay, what do I have to offer?’ I definitely learned a lot from the conversations I’ve been having. While it’s important to be an ally in this movement, Black voices cannot be muffled by other voices. This is their time to be heard. White people have to acknowledge their fucking privilege, which exists, and is very real. It’s important that we don’t just sit on our asses and let someone else fight this fight for us because it involves absolutely everyone.”
Taking to her Instagram story on June 3, Lili spoke about her support for the West Hollywood LGBTQ+ for Black Lives Matter protest, happening at Santa Monica and La Cienega. Her caption read, "Although I’ve never announced it publicly before, I am a proud bisexual woman. And I will be joining this protest today. Come join.”
On the work front, Lili Reinhart will be starring in Amazon Prime Video Original movie, Chemical Hearts which is premiering later this month.
