Video Transcript

- Hi, I'm Lili Reinhart and this is the Wired Autocomplete Interview.

[light music] I'm still on it.

I'm here after six seasons, going on seven.

Still on "Riverdale".

[light music] Okay.

Does Lili Reinhart actually sing in "Riverdale"?

Yeah, that's me.

Against my will, singing.

I wouldn't choose to sing, but I do sing and I do enjoy it on the show.

Does Lili Reinhart have tattoos?

I do.

I have one, two, three, four, five, six.

Six, going on multiple many more in the future.

My favorite one is probably this one that I got done in Vancouver by a lovely artist named Kaiju.

She also did this one.

Does Lili Reinhart live with Madelaine?

Madelaine and I did live together season one of "Riverdale" in Vancouver.

We shared an apartment together.

And I have quarantined in Vancouver twice with Madelaine and Cami, and that was fun.

Does Lili Reinhart respond to fan mail?

No, but we do get a lot of fan mail sent to our "Riverdale" office, and we don't get to see all of it, but we definitely do see a good chunk of it.

But I think it would be a little hard to respond to all the fan mail, but we do appreciate it.

Does Lili Reinhart have a YouTube channel?

I do not, but I have guest starred on Madelaine's YouTube channel.

How did Lili Reinhart start acting?

I started by doing local community theater.

Then that slowly progressed into me auditioning for local film and TV in Cleveland, and then we kinda just expanded from there.

I mean, I always wanted to be an actor, so I always was the performing kid in my family and really wanted to do something with that growing up, and as I did theater, that drive and ambition just got stronger and stronger.

Who did Lili Reinhart voice in "The Simpsons"?

Bella Ella, that was fun.

A dream for my dad.

I grew up watching "The Simpsons" with my dad and not understanding the humor at all but knowing that it made my dad happy and laugh, so I was like, yeah we love "The Simpsons", so.

Lili Reinhart Glamour speech.

I did a very scary speech for Glamour in New York a couple of years ago.

Wrote the speech on the notes on my phone couple weeks prior but that was very, it was intimidating.

I had one of those pop star microphones.

It felt like I was giving a Ted Talk, which I kinda was.

It was about body image and stuff like that in the industry and people seemed to like it, so cool.

Where did Lili Reinhart grow up?

Bay Village, Ohio.

I'm a Cleveland girl.

Did Lili Reinhart go to the Met Gala?

I have gone, I believe three times.

I feel very fortunate to go to such a lavish event.

I feel very out of place there, but it is fun.

This most recent Met Gala, I went to, in 2021.

It was on my birthday, which was fun, but I wore a dress by Christian Siriano and it had a flower from all 50 states because the theme was America something, something about America, so he decided to put the flower of all 50 states, so there was a pine cone on there.

Don't know where, but it was on there.

Was Lili Reinhart in "Hustlers"?

I was, thank you so much for noticing.

I was in there.

It was very intimidating working on "Hustlers" with such big names and movie stars, so I felt a little out of place there, but I was just happy to be there and texting the director at the end of every day, asking, "Am I doing okay?

"Am I good?

"Am I gonna get fired?"

'Cause I was feeling a little insecure, but the girls on the set made me feel so welcomed and it was a really fun experience.

Are Lili Reinhart and Timothee Chalamet friends?

I believe we're friends.

We filmed a movie together when I was 18 and we do keep in touch.

I saw him at Coachella, I was like, Hey, Timmy.

He had his security guards and he was like, Oh, Lili, gave me a hug, whatever.

But he's a great guy.


Is Lili Reinhart a twin?

I mean, maybe.

No, definitely not.

I have no idea why people would think that.

I have two sisters, I'm the middle child and we do look a lot alike, so maybe that's why people think that.

Is Lili Reinhart German?

I am.

Reinhart, pretty German.

I think Reinhart stands for pure heart, something like that.

We wanted to maybe get a family tattoo but my mom doesn't wanna get a tattoo, so it feels weird if we all did it without her, but maybe we'll force her someday.

Is Lili Reinhart related to Joan Cusack?

Weirdly, people do liken me to her.

They say that I look like a young Joan Cusack.

And I don't maybe necessarily see it, but I'm cool with it.

Is Lili Reinhart still on "Riverdale"?

I'm still on it.

I'm here, after six seasons, going on seven.

Still on "Riverdale".

I love Betty.

I will really miss playing a character that's been with me for so long.

I mean, I don't know how my career's gonna look, but I don't know if I'll play a character for as long as I've played Betty, so I cherish getting to know her for that long.

Okay, Lili Reinhart poems.

I did publish a book of poetry called "Swimming Lessons" and I'm shy about it and feel a little, it's like opening your diary a little bit, so that was a very vulnerable thing to do, but I'm a very big fan of poetry.

I think I've been writing poems since I was maybe 16 when I first was falling in love for the first time and experiencing long distance love and going on Tumblr to find romantic typewriter poetry that I could send to my boyfriend, so that's kinda how I first got into it.

Lili Reinhart Covergirl commercial.

I've done two, and one of them was shot in my backyard.

I filmed it by myself during COVID, so that was a very strange experience to film what I knew was going to be a national commercial completely on my own in my backyard.

But it turned out pretty good, so happy with that.

Lili Reinhart "Look Both Ways" trailer.

It exists.

"Look Both Ways", my film.

It comes out August 17th on Netflix.

Since in the "Look Both Ways" trailer, you see Natalie's life splits off into two different paths, I would like to think that, in a parallel life, I live on a farm in Hawaii and I sell coconut ice cream on the side of the road.

That sounds like a dream, so I hope that that's where I'm out somewhere in the Universe doing that.

Sounds pretty fulfilling to me.

Lili Reinhart Tumblr.

Yes, I had a Tumblr.

I don't remember how old I was when I started it, maybe 15 or something.

I first started posting advice about the acting industry, very cringey.

I think I deleted all of those posts, thank God.

I also posted fashion, pictures from the red carpet events, actresses that I loved their dresses, stuff like that.

And then I posted a couple poems on Tumblr before I published my book, and when I was getting good feedback from my poetry on Tumblr, I think that's what encouraged me to publish.

Lili Reinhart best friend.

Well, I have a best friend, her name is Austin and we've been friends since we were 11.

So over half my life now, this girl's been in my life and I love her to death.

Okay, what time, whoa, was Lili Reinhart born?

People ask this question?

That's so weird.

I believe I was born at 11:15 AM, but you can ask my mom.

She doesn't know entirely, but that's the time that we go with.

What, oh my God, I was like, what breed am I?

What breed is Lili Reinhart's dog?

Milo is a Schnauzer, Mini Schnauzer Terrier mix and he's perfect.

What episode was Lili Reinhart on "Law and Order"?

I believe it was season 14 of "Law and Order".

I don't wanna spoil it, but definitely play creepy, creepy young girl.

What skincare does Lili Reinhart use?

I have such an assortment of skincare.

I'm a skincare junkie.

I love Augustinus Bader, Renee Rouleau, Tatcha.

We could go through all the brands.

Love love love skincare.

It's interesting to see what people Google.

I mean, I certainly didn't expect some of those, but I'm happy people are interested enough to want to know things about me.

I'm like, cool, I'll answer these questions for sure.

Thank you for Googling me.

I hope I'm interesting enough.

If not, oh well.

I'm interesting to me, I guess.

Thank you, bye!
