Lili Reinhart Opens Up About “Exhausting” 11-Year Depression Battle

Lili Reinhart is letting her fans know that they aren’t alone when it comes one very important topic.

 

The 25-year-old actress recently opened up about her struggle with self-image, channeling her honest thoughts into a candid 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 on her IG Story Jan. 13. “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. It’s a practice I’m still learning. I didn’t think being in this industry, that is so obsessed with womens’ 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 she noted her journey is a continuous process, she hopes to one day learn to fully celebrate her beautiful self. “My body has carried me through 25 years of life,” Reinhart continued. “All my scars, tears, trauma…I wish I could love it more, even when it doesn’t look like it did when I was 20. But I am trying. I know my body deserves equal love and admiration at any size.”

Reinhart also opened up about the emotional toll stemming from her experience, one many may relate to. “To not feel at home in my own skin is a devastating feeling,” she added. “As if my body betrayed me by changing. I’ve looked in the mirror and pulled my skin back tight to see what I *should* look like. What I’m expected to look like… in an industry where you’re -inconvenient- when not a sample size. It’s painful to think hundreds of millions are concerned with what our bodies look like. That’s an incredibly broken system.”

 

Speaking directly to her fans, she concluded, “I know I’m not alone in this toxic way of thinking about my body. And it’s heartbreaking that this feeling is understood by so many of us. Let’s continue to talk about it. Normalize it. Empathize with others. Show compassion and kindness.”

Through the years, Reinhart has opened up about her mental health and body image battles with the hope of spreading awareness and making her followers feel less alone.

 

On the set of Riverdale, “I’ve felt very insecure due to the expectation that people have for women on tv, what they should look like,” she tweeted in 2020. “But I have come to terms with my body and that I’m not the kind of person you would see walking on a runway during fashion week.”

 

She later added, “And I want other young women to see my body on tv and feel comfort in the fact that I’m not a size 0. And I’m not a perfect hourglass shape.”

SOURCE SPORTS: Browns DT Malik McDowell Arrested Naked After Altercation with Police

Published

Browns DT Malik McDowell arrested fully naked in Florida.

Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Malik McDowell is accused of walking around naked in front of a South Florida learning center. When a Broward County Sheriff’s Office deputy arrived, he allegedly attacked him.

The 25-year-old football player was then tased. McDowell is charged with aggravated battery on an officer, resisting arrest with violence and exposure of sex organs in public.

The graphic video obtained by TMZ Sports, shows the arrest and altercation.

According to the New York Post, his defense attorney believes his client could have been slipped something.

“Apparently somebody may have slipped him something or given him something he was unaware of, which explains some of his bizarre behavior,” said McDowell’s defense attorney.

In a statement, the Browns said they’re “aware of the very concerning incident,” and are gathering more information and will have no further comment at this time.

This season, McDowell appeared in 15 games, recording three sacks and 19 solo tackles. He will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

McDowell had been arrested three other times including for resisting arrest and assault.

Some online accounts suggest his actions could be the result of a mental heath issue.

If true, I hope Malik McDowell gets the help he so clearly needs. Blowing this opportunity, in this bizarre manner, is not the action of a well person.

Again *if* true.

We have to have a conversation about Malik McDowell and cte, mixed in with mental health, and then drugs and alcohol. I’m not dismissing him of illegal behavior however I’m not dismissing the fact that a grown man on an nfl contract charged a cop and children’s center NAKED.😢🙏🏽

Please, @Browns, do the right thing by Malik McDowell. He is clearly in crisis. Today is one of the worst days of his life. Support him, stand by him and help him out of his darkness. The true soul of an organization (and its people) is revealed on days like this.

After tuning his life and career around, Malik McDowell is now off the straight and narrow once again, mental health is a real issue, very sad to see someone in that state once again

— MoreForYouCleveland (@MoreForYou_CLE) January 18, 2022

Let’s all try & be above reposting what happened to Malik McDowell that’s in the news today. I under stand that it’s news, but he needs our thoughts & prayers right now. That is definitely a cry for help & we can be better for not posting it for “Clicks.” 🙏🏻 for you Big Guy.

Police in Washington, D.C. have released a video in hopes that the public may have some information in the brazen daylight carjacking of a city council candidate at a gas station this past weekend.

D.C. politician and Council at Large candidate Nate Fleming can be seen in the video walking to his vehicle when a SUV pulls up beside him, with a gunman immediately jumping out of the passenger side, who pointed the gun at him. The politician gives up his car keys and the assailants make their getaway in the SUV and Fleming’s BMW.

Fleming took to Twitter after the incident, tweeting, “To be threatened at gunpoint is shocking,” he wrote, “but I am not surprised that I was attacked given the increase in carjackings and the crisis facing young people in this city.”

After establishing its ambitions for the new digital frontier, adidas Originals is diving deeper into the metaverse to introduce a new chapter of its ongoing partnership with luxury collaborator, Prada

The two iconic brands are joining forces to disrupt the metaverse through a charitable lens that puts creators at the forefront. Prada’s foray into the metaverse will take the form of a global, user-generated NFT art project, utilizing blockchain Polygon Web3. This first-of-its-kind interactive platform will allow the metaverse community to contribute to an NFT made up of 3,000 individual tiles that will then be developed into one final art piece by digital artist & educator Zach Lieberman.

The final adidas x Prada NFT piece will be auctioned off with primary sale profits going to climate-focused organizations Slow Factory and UNESCO Sea Beyond, and a percentage of sales will be split between the creators of the tile artwork – including any secondary sales of Lieberman’s final work each time it is sold. Acknowledging the fundamental role of creators, all 3,000 works featured in the final NFT project will be minted as unique NFTs that each contributor will own and can sell on the secondary market.

Each tile and the final piece will be inspired by the recently releasedPrada Re-Nylon collection – a sustainable, reimagined luxury sportswear collection, released in collaboration with adidas, that is composed of Prada’s signature, recyclable Re-Nylon fabric.
