Netflix and Addison Rae will continue to work together through a new partnership where the studio will develop new films for Rae to star in, the streaming service announced today.
Rae will also executive produce projects which she brings to the company.
The news comes off the heels of Rae’s acting debut in rom-com remake He’s All That, which was released globally on Netflix August 27th.
In the reimagining of 1999 teen classic She’s All That, Addison Rae stars alongside Tanner Buchanan as an influencer who accepts a challenge to turn the school’s biggest loser into prom king.
More than 55 million households are projected to watch He’s All That in its first four weeks on the service. The film has reached No. 1 in 78 countries including Brazil, France and Saudi Arabia.
Naketha Mattocks, Director Family Film: “Addison Rae’s charm and promise is undeniable as evidenced by He’s All That and her already passionate fan base,” said Naketha Mattocks. “We’re thrilled to be part of this next phase of her burgeoning career as an actress.”
“Getting the opportunity to work with Netflix was such a pinch me moment and now to be able to continue the relationship is beyond my wildest dreams,” said Addison Rae.
“I’m thrilled to be able to collaborate with this incredible team and am excited to develop projects while continuing to strengthen my skills as an actress.”
In just one year, Addison Rae has become one of the biggest stars in the world. Named the top earning creator on TikTok by Forbes Magazine, Rae’s infectious personality, Louisiana charm, and overwhelming positivity have led her to be one of the most sought after talent of her generation.
Since November of 2019, she has amassed over 100 million followers across social media. Rae is currently the third most-followed individual on TikTok with over 5.4 billion likes and 84 million followers. Her impressive reach goes beyond TikTok with over 39.7 million followers on Instagram, 4.72 million subscribers on YouTube and 4.8 million followers on Twitter.
In addition to her impressive social media following, Rae has made a name for herself across several other mediums. In 2019 she became co-founder of the clean makeup company ITEM Beauty, was named a global ambassador for American Eagle, and launched a podcast for Spotify with her mom titled Mama Knows Best.
In March 2021, Addison released her debut single “Obsessed.” Addison co-wrote the single, which was produced by a dream team of chart-topping producers, Benny Blanco, Blake Slatkin and Ryan McMahon.
Addison Rae is 20 years old and currently lives in Los Angeles.
In He’s All That, teen social media influencer Padgett’s humiliating on-camera breakup goes viral, leading her to make a risky bet to save her reputation: She swears she can turn scruffy antisocial Cameron into prom king material. But things get complicated when she finds herself falling for him IRL.
