Lili Reinhart Has New Respect For Strippers After Visiting So Many Clubs For 'Hustlers' Role

By Jeff Mazzeo

Lili Reinhart takes her work very seriously so she had to do massive amounts of research for her role in the hit film, "Hustlers."

The 23-year-old "Riverdale" star attended the Time 100 Next event at Pier 17 in New York City and talked about all the preparation she did for her role as a member of the stripper gang that ripped off wealthy businessmen.

“I have been going to more strip clubs in … the past few months than most people probably do in their entire life,” Reinhart told Page Six at the event.

She continued,

“I respect strippers more 100 percent.”

Practice Makes Perfect


Lili also said that she took two pole dancing lessons to get the moves down for her part in the dancers turned thieves flick.

She was not along, because Alex Rodriguez shared a video of Jennifer Lopez, who played the stripper ringleader, practicing on the pole. Lopez worked with some of the best dance instructors in the world because she had to pull off the veteran role. In the movie, Lopez's character has to teach Constance Wu's character how to dance properly.

Lili Was Honored To Attend The Event


The actress was blown away by the honor of being invited to such a prestigious event. Reinhart gushed about the event and said she was thankful to have such an influential position.

"An honor of a lifetime. Thank you so much @time for having me on your #time100next list for 2019. Never thought I’d be in the position I am in today where people respond so openly to me speaking about mental health and body acceptance. Eternally grateful to everyone who has cheered me on these last few years."

J. Lo. Did Not Get Paid For 'Hustlers'

Jennifer recently admitted that she worked on and produced "Hustlers" for free.

“I didn’t get paid a whole bunch of money for ‘Hustlers,’" Lopez told GQ. "I did it for free and produced it,” she continued. “I bank on myself, you know? That was like Jenny from the block. I do what I want, I do what I love. But it was kind of a really different mindset to get into to play Ramona.”

Alongside Lopez, Reinhart, and Wu, "Hustlers" also starred Julia Styles singers Lizzo and **Cardi B. We are fairly certain the "Money" rapper got paid for her highly anticipated part.

Lili Is Still Dating Cole Sprouse


Last week Lili supported her boyfriend, Cole Sprouse when he won the People's Choice Award.

Even though the attended the award show together, Cole walked the red carpet separately. Lili did share her happiness that her love walked home a winner by posting a kiss pic to her Instagram.

Cole won the award for Dream Movie Star for his role as Will Newman in "Five Feet Apart." Cole hilariously started his speech by comparing himself to Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt.

"Man, there are so many other newcomers in this category, specifically DiCaprio and Pitt," Cole said. "Just keep your heads up. Don’t let this dishearten you. You guys are going to be here one day. The three of us, we’ve had this competition for a long time, but, apparently, this was my year." Sprouse finished his acceptance speech by getting real with fans. "I think with 'Five Feet Apart,' our mission statement was to bring cystic fibrosis to the audience, to a public forum of discussion. It's a really underrepresented disease and thanks to all you guys who watched it. I think it [the movie] hit its mark and we really hit our goal," he concluded.
