CAN THE TIKTOK QUEEN CONQUER HOLLYWOOD?
By Kirsten Howard
TikTok sensation Addison Rae stars in Netflix rom-com He’s All That, but will acting be her next great achievement?
Addison Rae has been a singing, dancing, social media-slaying star on the rise for the last two years.
In July, 2019 Rae joined popular video-sharing platform TikTok, and within a few months she had amassed over a million followers.
Since then, she’s started a podcast, released her own cosmetics line, and put out a single called “Obsessed”.
Rae also earned $5 million in just one year from her various endorsement deals and merchandise.
Now, Rae is trying her hand at acting with her first big leading role in Netflix movie He’s All That.
The film is a gender-swapped remake of the 90s rom-com She's All That, which starred Freddie Prinze Jr., Rachael Leigh Cook, Paul Walker and Matthew Lillard.
In this version of the story, Rae plays Padgett Sawyer, an uber popular high school girl who rises to the challenge of turning the school's least popular boy into the prom king.
He’s All That didn’t score great reviews from film critics upon its release, but it’s sure to be a must-watch for Rae’s many followers.
Many people will be asking if Rae could soon conquer Hollywood with such a huge fan base cheering her on.
