Lili Reinhart Opened Up About Her Struggle With Body Dysmorphia After Fans Criticized Her Recent 'Harper's Bazaar' Comments


Body dysmorphia affects people of every shape, age, and size, which is why we’re so glad Riverdale actress Lili Reinhart is speaking out about her experiences with the disorder and taking internet trolls to task.

In a recent old Hollywood-inspired video shoot for Harpar’s Bazaar, Reinhart was asked about her retro fashion icons. “I’ve always really loved old Hollywood glamour and fashion,” Reinhart says over images of her in various retro outfits. “There’s so many iconic women — Veronica Lake, Lauren Bacall, Marilyn, Audrey, Grace Kelly. Marilyn is an inspiration to me in the sense that she was a curvy girl and she had boobs and she didn’t have a 24-inch waist, and to me that’s really inspiring. It makes me feel like my body can be accepted.”

However, some fans took issue with Reinhart’s admission that she struggles with body acceptance.

"I love her so much but she's acting like she's suffering ?? She's literally so pretty and has an amazing body," one fan wrote. Another commented, "I can't relate to this. What's unacceptable about her body? Who's out there telling her, her bod is too much? I'm not saying she doesn't have those moments but why would she take them seriously looking like that?!"

Reinhart took the opportunity to try to educate her followers on the nature of mental health and body image issues in a multiple-part Twitter post on July 3rd:

She added a few more thoughts today, July 4th.

"Mental illness gets worse when people say that you don’t have a right to feel the way you do."

We’re so proud of Lili Reinhart for speaking out about this issue. Body dysmorphia is a mental health problem, and — just like with all mental illnesses — it can affect anyone and doesn’t have a face.

Let’s use this as a reminder to choose empathy over judgement whenever possible — especially when it comes to the mental health experiences of others.

The 10 Most Stressful Jobs—Did Yours Make the List?


Think your job is stressful? Try being an urologist.

Every job carries a certain level of stress—but the most stressful jobs undeniably take a greater toll on workers than low-stress jobs do. Some people are attracted to these jobs for the challenges and rewards they offer, while others would like to avoid stressful careers. But how do you know if a job is going to be stressful or not?

The Occupational Information Network (O*NET), a U.S. Department of Labor/Employment and Training Administration–sponsored initiative, has the answers. Determining levels of stress is difficult, as everyone carries stress differently and some are better equipped to handle it than others, but the O*NET Resource Center has developed a list of the most stressful jobs based on the amount of stress tolerance people in that field must possess.

These jobs require “accepting criticism and dealing calmly and effectively with high-stress situations” and, unsurprisingly, many of the jobs at the top of the list involve facing life-and-death situations. The 10 most stressful jobs are:

1. Urologist

2. Anesthesiologist Assistants

3. Nurse Anesthetists

4. Telephone Operators

5. Acute Care Nurses

6. Dancers

7. Obstetricians and Gynecologists

8. Police, Fire, and Ambulance Dispatchers

9. Surgeons

10. Transit and Railroad Police

Six of the top 10 most stressful jobs are in the healthcare field, but telephone operators and emergency dispatchers also made the list, proving even desk jobs can be taxing.

Notably, all the jobs O*NET ranked are at least a little stressful: Even the least-stressful profession, Models, had a stress level of 24 (out of 100).

I Went Indoor Skydiving to Test Out These Sneakers–but They're Actually the Perfect Lightweight Summer Shoe


Last week, I learned how to fly.

Along with a group of other lucky writers and editors, I was treated to an outing at iFly Westchester, an indoor skydiving facility not far from New York City. We were there to celebrate the New Balance Fresh Foam Cruz–and get quite the adrenaline rush.

Far too afraid of the potential for things to go dangerously, dangerously wrong, I'd never be able to jump out of an actual, moving plane–but indoor skydiving felt like almost all the thrill without the obvious risk. The cushion of air that supports indoor flyers functions not unlike that classic science experiment you probably remember from elementary school: switch on a hair dryer, watch ping pong balls float miraculously. Except in this case, there's a giant "hair dryer" in a skydiving tunnel and even the tallest of guys became as light as ping pong balls. With the guidance of ultra-compassionate instructors, several groups of disbelieving journalists took turns floating low to the ground and spinning high.

Speaking of floating: The Fresh Foam Cruz sneakers we were gifted felt nearly as freeing. The plush sole is supportive yet cushiony, making it a truly multipurpose shoe that can work for your workouts (whether they're extreme or of a more moderate intensity) and tackling errands. The athleisure vibe means these kicks go with just about anything, and the bootie construction makes them super-easy to slip on and off. They're divinely lightweight, meaning you'll definitely want to pack them for a weekend away–because who really has room for more than one pair of sneakers?!

New Balance Fresh Foam Cruz Knit in Rain Cloud with White Munsell, $85,

Even the iFly instructors donned a pair–a fact I only realized halfway through the event. I was too spellbound watching the experienced instructors pull off all kinds of synchronized stunts and daring tricks. 

Nico sure made it look easy. Considering I couldn't even successfully turn ever so slightly to my right, I think it's safe to say I'm going to need a lot more indoor skydiving practice. My new sneaks, on the other hand? Perfect on the first try.
