Riverdale fans lost their collective shit when on-screen sweethearts Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse were caught kissing and canoodling at Comic Con this year. The actor who plays Jughead's dad on the show confirmed that, "wasn't surprised" at the dating rumours, as apparently the two seem super close on set, which pointed all signs to yes, #bughead is real.
Back in April, Cole told Elle that, "I am one of those guys that's never going to talk about my private life with the public sphere. I mean, people can talk about 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."
But this September, when Cole and the Riverdale cast sat down with Entertainment Weekly, Sprouse got a little more candid about him and his relationship status. "Since the show began, people have wanted Lili and I to be together. People have wanted Lili and Camila [Mendes] to be together. People have wanted KJ [Apa] and I to be together. People have wanted every actor on this show to be in a union that they could make real."
While Sprouse again tip-toed around whether he and Lili are together, he noted that, "it’s very pleasing that people talk about Lili and I in that way because it means that we’re resonating so strongly that people really want that to be true."
This wouldn't be the first time two co-stars denied that they were dating. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, Penn Badgley and Blake Lively?? We wouldn't be surprised if these two Riverdale kids kept us in the dark for the next season!
