Chemical Hearts is available now on Amazon Prime Video, and I admit that I still need to watch it. I want to see it because I loved the book and I love Lili Reinhart.
But I admit that I basically only see her as Betty Cooper. I mean, that’s all I have ever really seen her in.
The actress has been doing press for Chemical Hearts and talked about just that. The way that people see her as Betty Cooper and how she’s hoping that can change.
“It was a lot of work and it was cool to be an executive producer, to actually have a say in things,” she told EW. “It’s something that I wasn’t used to, having that influence. But it was an incredibly collaborative experience.”
“People haven’t really seen what I’m fully capable of,” Lili added.
But she talked about the complexities of taking on a new character. “Maybe they only see me as being on a commercial television show, and I hope that this shows people that my heart is really in film. I want people to see me as something other than Betty Cooper. It’s hard to break out of that mold.”
It definitely is hard to break out of what the world sees you as, but if anyone deserve it, Lili is definitely on that list.
