Lili Reinhart is looking for film roles that are the opposite of her character Betty Cooper in 'Riverdale'
In a recent interview, Lili Reinhart revealed that she is looking out for feature film roles that are not dramatic and high-school based
Lili Reinhart has given an iconic face to Archie Comics' Betty Cooper and, even though we cannot imagine anyone else making the perfect on-screen off-screen 'Bughead,' Reinhart has no plans to remain the teenage sweetheart for the rest of her career.
The 22-year-old actress told Vogue Australia that she is going to venture into films after The CW show wraps up. “Well, I definitely think that my heart is in film, that’s where I feel myself most artistically fulfilled,” she says, adding that she hopes to do a lot of feature films and "playing roles that are not high school characters."
The actress who has been vocal about body positivity also reveals that she is currently looking at other projects to do in the future and avoiding high school drama roles "because I play a high school student for nine months out of the year… I don’t want to do another high school story,” she affirms.
“I think in order for me to feel that I’m pushing myself and growing as a performer, I need to kind of do things that are a little bit more adult and maybe things that are more grounded, because 'Riverdale' is so over the top and very fast paced and everything is very dramatic,” Reinhart says of the hugely popular show 'Riverdale' that centres around the Archie Comics teens namely Archie Andrews, Veronica Lodge, Jughead Jones and Betty Cooper.
“I feel like I’m more drawn to things that are very dramatic, you know, slow, and kind of have a slow burn and take their time,” Reinhart continues, noting she’s looking for cinema roles just the opposite of 'Riverdale' “because I want to show my range and what I can do as an actor,” she explains.
Ever since the actress rose to fame, she has made headlines as she continues to break down the idea of Hollywood perfection and slam body-shamers. Added to that, she is also dating Cole Sprouse, who plays Jughead Jones in the same show.
