**Riverdale**'s Lili Reinhart is opening up about her struggles with body dysmorphia. Some Twitter users recently called out the star for a quote in Harper's Bazaar. "Marilyn Monroe was a curvy girl: she had boobs and she didn’t have a 24-inch waist. To me that’s really inspiring and makes me feel like my body can be accepted." Lili Reinhart, Harper's Bazaar Someone wrote that it's tiring to hear women with "industry standard" bodies talk about not being accepted. "Mental illness gets worse when people say that you don’t have a right to feel the way you do. That’s where we are failing. Do not encourage this behavior. It is destructive. More destructive than you’ll ever realize. You may not understand someone’s insecurity- but respect it." Lili Reinhart "My body is not like hers. Thought that was quite obvious. Insecurity exists outside the limits of a certain dress size. You’re not helping the problem. Telling someone they don’t deserve to feel insecure because their body is “fine” or “just like” whomever.. is wrong. That’s part of the problem. That’s part of body shaming." Lili Reinhart "I will never understand how someone can be so cowardly as to hide behind their phone and tell a stranger that their feelings are irrelevant and considered “whining,” just because they think you represent some ideal figure or shape." Lili Reinhart
