'Riverdale' Star Camila Mendes Says It's 'So Great' Dating a Non-Actor
“People knew who I was in Hawaii, and people knew who I was in Paris. My cast mates have gone all over the world and people recognize them. It’s on a global scale,” she says of the fame that came with starring on a hit teen drama. “I'm a blonde white girl. I have sunglasses on and a hat. How do people look at me, and in an instant, they know? People are seeing my face that much… It's something I can't wrap my head around. I don't know how you ever can.”
The speculation got particularly frustrating for Reinhart when the Internet was abuzz with the idea that she might be pregnant, due to a few unflattering photos online.
“People will always have something to say. I’ve accepted that,” she recalls of the rumors, which she has publicly denied. “It doesn't mean it's not frustrating when people say those things. It's not like it just rolls off my back.”
“It was bugging me and at first it was really upsetting,” she said at the time. “I'm 21 -- I'm not pregnant [and] I don’t want people to think I'm pregnant if I'm not pregnant. It did take a hit to my self-esteem for a second and then I kind of picked myself back up and said, ‘I'm not going to let this ruin my day!’”
