It’s Valentines month – so its perfect timing that Cole Sprouse is speaking about his adored-all-over-the-fandom and for the longest time super private, relationship with Lili Reinhart in this season of love.
The 26-year-old Riverdale star opened up in his new GQ feature, publicly talking about his much-shipped coupling with his co-star. Cole plays Jughead Jones to Lili’s Betty Cooper on the hit CW show. The two make up Riverdale’s very popular Bughead.
Fans have been squeeing for years over Cole and Lili, but since they got together, the two have chosen to stay low-key. They are known to be intensely private about what they have. But Cole now reveals that he and Lili have never consciously hidden their love.
The actor candidly shared about their relationship:
“It’s not something that we hide, or it’s not something that we show off. It’s just something that exists.”
He also spoke about his successful career as a child actor:
“Many of the jobs we were taking were the things that were keeping my small family afloat. There was this constant pressure to secure jobs, which in turn were money.”
And Cole had this to say about today’s social media-centered times. And yes, here’s where privacy really does come in for him:
“I think social media and the Internet reward extremes. I’m a firm believer that a lot of that experimentation should be done in private. Ultimate privacy.”
Speaking of social media, Cole took to Instagram to write about his GQ feature. Along with a photo from the shoot (Cole looks absolutely smashing, FYI!), he hilariously wrote:
“for this valentines, rip these photos from the pages of the new @gq and burn them in whatever Wiccan summoning circle you’ve drawn on your bathroom floor.
Light the cadles, then say Cole Sprouse, Cole Sprouse, Cole Sprouse. Wait 6-10 business days. Congratulations, your Cole Sprouse body pillow has finally arrived.”
Meanwhile, around the same time the feature was published on Thursday (February 14), Lili also took to social media to sweetly greet her beau a Happy Valentine’s Day.
The actress shared a super cute photo of the two of them about to kiss, and wrote:
“You make me very happy. Happy Valentine’s Day, my love.”
AWWW. Happy hearts day, Cole and Lili! Stay In love!
