Addison Rae Is Starring in a ’90s Movie Remake

TikTok star Addison Rae has taken her talents beyond the online platform. She has her own makeup line with Item Beauty, recently starred in Kim K’s campaign as a SKIMS model, regularly hosts a podcast with her mom, and now she’s going to be starring in a movie.

Addison is going to be playing one of the lead roles in the upcoming remake of ’90s classic romantic comedy, She’s All That. But the reboot is going to have a huge twist, which is a reversal of roles for the two main characters. According to Variety, the film’s going to be titled He’s All That And instead of playing Rachel Leigh Cook’s character Laney, she’s going to take over for Freddie Prinze Jr. as a gender-swapped Zach.

The influencer is going to be playing an influencer, like herself, named Padget who’s going to transform the nerdy boy in school, and turn him into prom king. The story will be written by the same writer who wrote the original 1999 movie, and will be produced by Miramax — which is no longer owned by the Weinstein brothers.

“This reboot is a welcomed step towards a new generation of Miramax storytelling, part of our greater strategy to leverage our existing library with fresh, re-imagined content in both film and TV,” Miramax CEO Bill Block told Variety.

Addison made the exciting announcement on her Instagram. “AHHHHH!!! My dreams are coming true!!! I’m so excited to finally share the news that i am getting the opportunity to make my acting debut in HE’S ALL THAT which is a remake of one of my all time favorite movies, SHE’S ALL THAT,” she wrote.

“I’m so grateful for the opportunities that have been presented to me and none of it would have ever happened without every single one of you. I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!! I can’t wait for you to see it!!!” She continued, “I can’t wait to work with this amazing team and everyone involved in making the film and am so thankful to everyone who gave me this incredible opportunity. THANK YOU!! I’m so excited for y’all to meet Padget!!!”

Addison Rae Is a SKIMS Model

2020 might be a landmark year for all the wrong reasons, but for SKIMS, there’s at least one reason to celebrate as this month marks the one-year anniversary of Kim Kardashian-West‘s shapewear line.

Kim — as well as the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner Klan — was essentially the world’s first real influencer. As such, her campaign stars one of the biggest right now: TikTok powerhouse and dance queen Addison Rae.

In the campaign, Rae wears a sultry black bra and shorts set — likely an homage to the SKIMS founders’ recent minimalist aesthetic — inside a bedroom plastered with wall-to-wall KKW posters. In the accompanying video, she dons a brown bodysuit and stretches — possibly prepping for a new dance video? — in the same room, atop a bedspread and pillows printed with Kim’s face.

It’s a mature new look for Rae, who’s become close with Kardashian’s sister Kourtney and was recently listed as the highest-earning TikTok star—no oversized sweatshirts or athleisure in sight. Having emerged as one of the app’s most famous stars, Rae’s Internet stardom is sure to bring her future success. Whether she’ll be in the next season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, though, is TBD.

In addition to KKW and Rae fronting the campaign are digital influencers and celebrities Amelia Gray and Delilah Belle Hamlin, Jodie Turner-Smith, Lala Anthony, Precious Lee, Rumer Willis, and Yovanna Ventura.

Kardashian-West founded SKIMS — which encompasses sizes XXS-4X, 31 cups, and 9 nudes — on the basis of enhancing the wearers’ natural shape, and the campaign is a testament to her followers’ support of the line. Based on her own famous curves and the constant focus on her body by the public at-large, SKIMS has been a success since its first drop literally sold out in minutes.

Though KKW gifted her popular Solutionwear to 100 customers, she’s also made the campaign as a thank you to her fans. That’s why, apart from Rae and the celeb set, eight customers also star in their own One Year Anniversary videos.

“I’ve loved seeing everyone’s photos in SKIMS and reading the comments on social media, and I wanted to use this time, the campaign, and customer gifting to really say thank you,” Kardashian-West said in a statement. “The customers are our inspiration for developing new ideas and collections and there is so much more to come.”

Aside from the focus on today’s digital stars and SKIMS customers, the Vanessa Beecroft-shot campaign highlights a range of body types and races in a giant bed surrounded by SKIMS dolls and walls covered KKW posters. What comes next is anyone’s guess — but we’re keeping our Instagram notifications on to find out. Happy first birthday, SKIMS!
