Her cancellation announcement comes days after she made her debut appearance at the Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City in a red dress from the 2003 Tom Ford for Gucci collection.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that she signed a multi-picture deal with Netflix, according to Variety.

She made her acting debut in a remake of 1999 teen romcom She’s All That – titled He’s All That – which was the most viewed title on the streaming giant despite being panned by critics.

Of the new opportunity, Rae said in a statement to Variety: ‘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.

‘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.’

The original, a modern update of George Bernard Shaw’s play Pygmalion and the musical My Fair Lady, starred Freddie Prinze Jr. as a popular high schooler who accepted a bet to turn a nerdy girl (Rachael Leigh Cooke) into that year’s prom queen.

In the newest version, Addison plays a popular Instagram influencer and high school senior who accepts a challenge to turn an introverted photographer (Tanner Buchanan) into the prom king.

The movie features Cooke playing Addison’s mother, though she’s not playing her character from She’s All That.

The film has been a smashing success as Netflix has estimated that more than 55 million households will watch the remake within the first month of its release as it even reached #1 on the streaming platform in 78 countries.
