UPDATES ON RAE

Although Rae did not confirm or deny her attendance at the Met Gala, the TikTok Girl star revealed that she is beginning to rub shoulders with big-shot celebrities, as she and Anna Wintour are email buddies. In her words:
“I got an email from her and I was freaking out, she was just saying thank you for something I sent over. It was wild. I was shaking. We emailed a little bit. It was exciting.”
RAE GETS SUPPORT
Many have speculated that she got the movie role because of her influencer status, as she had no prior acting experience. However, the movie producers Jennifer Gibgot, and Andrew Panay, have different opinions.
They made it known that the "Black Sermon" crooner put in the work and auditioned online and physically. Gibgot added that this had been something Rae longed for, and she worked hard for it.
The TikTok star was also praised by her co-star Tanner Buchannan, who noted that she even knew her lines more than he knew his. Buchannan added that she did a great job.
"He's All That" is an alternate recreation of the 90s movie, "She's All That," where the gender roles are switched. Rae plays a high school influencer on a quest to make the most unpopular boy in school the prom king.
