Addison Rae Shares Excitement over New Movie ‘Fashionista’
After winning over audiences on mobile platforms, Addison Rae has her sights set on the big screens!
It was recently revealed that Rae would be the face of the new Paramount Players movie, Fashionista.
Add to that the multi-picture deal that the TikToker signed with the streaming behemoth Netflix, and things are looking pretty good for the up-and-coming star.
Although her first tick mark off the multi-picture deal, He's All That, wasn't very well received at 30% on Rotten Tomatoes and 4.3/ 10 on IMDb, she still has more than a few shots to make amends.

About Addison Rae's New Movie — 'Fashionista'
In a recent exclusive, Deadline reported that Rae had signed up for Fashionista.
The movie was based on the latest script developed by Amy Andelson & Emily Meyer, with Jennifer Gibgot and Andrew Panay are producing on behalf of Ethea Entertainment.
Ashley Brucks will reportedly oversee the production for the Studio.
There is yet to be a logline to be released for the movie. In all honesty, they haven't really signed a director on board either. Likely, the production will not begin anytime soon.
That being said, the publication assured that the film was in a state of active development and decision on a director would be made over the coming weeks.
Despite the lukewarm reception from critics, Rae clawed her way up to #1 on Netflix's Most Popular movies list for the week it was released.
Probably that was why insiders with the publication shared that several studios wanted Rae to be the face of their upcoming projects.
Rae specifically decided to go for Fashionista because that was exactly the kind of movie she wanted on her resume.
No wonder the TikToker turned actress promoted the article from Deadline on both her Instagram and Twitter.
Addison Rae's Debut Well-received on Netflix
Rae made her acting debut in He's All That, a gender-swapped remake of the 1999 teen rom-com She's All That.
Back in January, the actress told Variety that she was driven by the intent to show people that she was not limited to one thing.
"I want to play the bad guy but also the good guy," she said. "I eventually want something really deep and emotional and real as possible."
At the time, she was taking notes off of Breaking Bad.
"From the way it's shot to the script to the acting, it's all incredible," she said before acknowledging that having gone through the movie development process herself gave her a new perspective on how she saw movies and TV shows.
Still, she shared that binging on Breaking Bad and learning from it was something she really enjoyed.
