Lili Pauline Reinhart was born on 13th September 1996 in Cleveland, Ohio to parents Daniel and Amy Reinhart. She was raised in Bay Village alongside her siblings Tess Reinhart and Chloe Reinhart. Lili discovered her interest in the performing arts at a young age and was enrolled in dance classes. Throughout her teenage years, she performed in numerous local plays and even took up modeling.
Her mother often drove her to New York for auditions and they took advantage of her father’s hotel points for accommodation. The back and forth trips ate into her social life and her social life struggled. In the quest to break into the entertainment scene, Lili skipped out on her high school prom with the conviction that she would have numerous opportunities to wear pretty dresses. Thankfully that worked out for her in the end.
Reinhart began her professional acting career at the age of 14 after she landed a manager who helped her book small roles in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and a recurring appearance in six episodes of the Fox sitcom Surviving Jack.’ She continued sharpening her skills by appearing in underground movies. Confident in her acting, Reinhart moved to Los Angeles at the age of 18 where she lived in a shared apartment as she tried to jumpstart her Hollywood career.
Reinhart was living on her savings from previous acting gigs but quickly realized that living in LA was expensive. She became extremely anxious about booking roles and even had a five-month period where she stayed holed up in her room hoping for an audition. Her funds were running low and any attempts to hold a job were unsuccessful as she was constantly anxious at work.
After struggling with her deteriorating mental health for a while, Reinhart returned home to Cleveland, Ohio, and took up therapy to rebuild her confidence. Her first chance at stardom reared itself around this time and Reinhart submitted her first audition for the role of Betty Cooper on the TV series ‘Riverdale’ through a tape. Unfortunately, Reinhart did not get the role but showed up a month later to audition in person. She crushed her second audition and was immediately picked as part of the main cast. In a later interview, she acknowledged that the only cast member that was picked without a second audition was Cole Sprouse.
Soon after, the cast relocated to Vancouver to film the pilot and the television series was immediately picked up by The CW. Riverdale immediately blew up on release, launching Reinhart’s career. The exposure she received from playing Betty Cooper on the teen drama series opened her to other job offers and in 2017 she was cast as Tiffany in ‘ Galveston.’ The film premiered at South by Southwest and was released limitedly in theatres which affected its sales. In 2019, Reinhart was cast in the film ‘ Hustlers’ alongside veteran actresses Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Julia Stiles, and Keke Palmer. The film was a major success grossing up to $157.6 million worldwide. Later that year, the actress made a cameo in the Charlie’s Angels franchise.
Following her film success, the young actress landed her first starring role in Amazon Studio’s romantic drama ‘Chemical Hearts.’ She also took the opportunity to get behind the screens on the film as executive producer. Reinhart’s career continues to reach new heights with follow-up appearances like ‘ Plus/Minus’ and voice acting for a Simpsons episode. After collaborating with Amazon and earning her first executive producer credit on the film ‘ Chemical Hearts,’ Reinhart launched her production company ‘Small Victory Production’ and signed a deal with Amazon Studios.
Besides her on-screen work, Reinhart also serves as a brand ambassador for American Express and the OG makeup brand Cover Girl. The actress is also a published author of the book ‘ Swimming Lessons: Poems.’ The book is a compilation of short poems highlighting her struggle with anxiety, depression, young love, and heartbreak. As much as she admits she is no renowned poet Reinhart is glad to share her work with her fans and have people relate to her experiences.
