Cole Sprouse made it clear in an interview will Elle in April that he would “never ever” publicly discuss his private life. He explained, “I mean people can talk about the Jughead as much as they want but when it comes to the personal relationships, I have spent much of my life separating work and play so I will continue to do so.” People are certainly talking.
Speculation over his relationship with Riverdale co-star and on-screen girlfriend Lili Reinhart began in March when he posted a photo of her sitting in a field of flowers on Instagram. Although this shouldn’t really raise too much suspicion – if you scroll through Cole’s Instagram you’ll see that he’s quite the photographer, with even Riverdale’s KJ Apa and Madelaine Petsch making an appearance. And he’s currently making a name for himself in the fashion industry photographing the likes of Sophie Turner and Kendall Jenner for W and Style magazine.
But dating rumours have surfaced again this month. People reported that “the two were later seen canoodling, holding hands and kissing” at Entertainment Weekly’s Comic-Con party in San Diego last weekend, and photos also emerged of Lili wearing Cole’s jacket. However, in what might be the most credible proof we have that they could be dating, things got touchy feely during an interview with the Riverdale cast for TV Line. While Josie McCoy spoke about her character in the upcoming season which airs in October, Lili rests her arm upon the back of the couch, Cole waits a few seconds before doing the same and then strokes his fingertips on her wrist. Lili giggles and places her hand on his. But it’s Madelaine and Casey Cott’s reactions which were interesting. Either they confirm their knowledge of Cole and Lili’s relationship, or they each masterminded this whole thing and we took the bait.
