Camila Mendes is opening up about her struggles and helping fans along the way!

The “Riverdale” star – who’s never been one to shy away from talking about important topics like body image – is hoping to use her platform to inspire self-love in others, and we couldn’t be more on-board! Speaking in a recent interview, the 24-year-old actress gushed about the current body positivity movement happening and explained how she plans to help fans who are struggling to accept themselves:

“I realized that I have this platform, and young women and men who look up to me, and there is a tremendous power to do something positive with it. This body-positivity movement we’re having right now is so amazing and it’s helping me so much. I’m seeing all these people I look up to, like Rihanna, open up about their weight fluctuations and loving themselves the way they are. That makes me love myself more too.”

We love the way Camila isn’t afraid to speak up for what she believes in, and we could not love her more for helping out fans in an honest and open way. Way to go, Cami!
