Making up a quarter of Riverdale's 'Core Four,' Lili Reinhart is using her own moral compass to navigate the pitfalls of new-found fame. ASOS Magazine sat down with the actress at a West Hollywood coffee shop to run the gauntlet of topics that make her tick – depression, therapy, bodies (and our often damaged relationship with them) and more. Read on for excerpts of their conversation below, and to get your hands on the full interview, grab your copy of the Autumn 18 edition of the ASOS Magazine here.

LILI REINHART'S STYLE FILE
By Francesca Babb, 14 September 2018
On coping with life in the spotlight...
On positive body image (after Lili and co-star Camila Mendes appeared on the cover of Cosmopolitan Philippines, heavily retouched to give them miniscule waists)
On keeping it real on social media
On using therapy to help with self-doubt, anxiety and depression
On keeping her relationship with Riverdale co-star Cole Sprouse off the record
I've dealt with it a lot, people wanting to know things about my love life. I thought I was going to be the kind of person who would be OK talking about relationships, telling people what I do on dates, but that didn't end up being what I like to do. I'll talk about sex, about love, but I'm not going to talk about the relationship I'm in. It took a while to realise what I wanted to keep private, but right now, it's not going to happen. Keep a little mystery, come on!
