This comes after her co-star, Lili Reinhart, opened up about being sexually assaulted.
Riverdale’s Camila Mendes has taken time out from her busy schedule to draw attention to a seriously important issue.
Addressing the stigma surrounding eating disorders, an announcement which was posted to her Instagram told fans that she was joining forces with Project HEAL.
Project HEAL are a non-profit organisation which helps people deal with eating disorders and allows them to afford treatment.
She also opened up about her personal struggle with an eating disorder: “I can say from experience that eating disorders are serious mental illnesses. Growing up, I watched my big sister suffer from one for many years, and I’ve experienced periods of my life when I’ve suffered symptoms as well”.
Her aim with this campaign is to break the stigma surrounding eating disorders and she’s doing so by “auctioning off a day on the Riverdale set”.
Right then - where do we bid?
