It takes courage to come out about one’s sexuality, even for celebs. However, Lili Reinhart openly told the world in June that she’s bisexual. The Riverdale actress made all her fans happy when she shared the news.
The actress has been in a relationship with her Riverdale co-star Cole Sprouse. However, reports of their break-up started doing rounds in May. It was after that the gorgeous actress came out as bisexual. Her fans were happy, but many were confused as to why didn’t she come out earlier.
In an interaction with Flaunt magazine, Lili Reinhart has bared her heart out on being bisexual. She also revealed the reason behind not coming out until two months ago. The Riverdale star said, “I knew full well that I was attracted to women from a young age.” But she feared that as she is an actress, she feared people’s reaction to her coming out as bisexual publicly.
Lili Reinhart added, “I felt that since I’ve exclusively been in hetero-normative relationships, it would be too easy for any outsider, especially the media, to vilify me and accuse me of faking it to get attention. That’s not something I wanted to deal with. But to my close friends, and those in my life, my bisexuality has been no secret.”
Meanwhile, the Riverdale star revealed that she’s bisexual during the LGBTQ+ for Black Lives Matter Protest in West Hollywood. On June 3, she wrote on her Instagram story, “Although I’ve never announced it publicly before, I am a proud bisexual woman. And I will be joining this protest today. Come join.”
