Are Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart (aka Jughead Jones and Betty Cooper) dating IRL? Well, we certainly hope so!
According to sources, the “Riverdale” co-stars were spotted “canoodling, holding hands, and kissing” at Entertainment Weekly’s Comic-Con party in San Diego over the weekend. And that’s not all, Reinhart was also seen wearing Sprouse’s maroon jacket.

Rumours that the pair were an item started after Sprouse posted 2 photos of Reinhart on his Instagram a couple of months ago. The gorgeous images show the actress in a field of flowers. In one of his captions, the actor wrote, “That crow is clicking at us, can you hear it? The wind is so strong, the bird is practically hovering. They say time moves faster for corvids. Years and decades are seconds and minutes to the black bird. That’s why they click, to see if they can match our clocks.”
However, “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody” star shut down the rumours, explaining that he just likes taking photos of all his friends. PEOPLE noted that has also shared snaps of other celebrities like Kendall Jenner and “Spider-Man: Homecoming” actress Zendaya.
While “Bughead” (ship name for Jughead and Betty) shippers are excited about the new “evidences”, Sprouse told Elle Magazine that he would never go public with a “Riverdale” relationship.
“I think the shipping wars and communities have taken to realise relations as well when it comes to bromance or romance, as it’s been called for KJ (who plays Archie) and I, and then Lili and I. I think people are getting invested into us and the characters and they really want to know the relationships of the people in real life,” he said. “I am one of those guys that’s never ever going to talk about my private life with the public sphere. 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.”
24-year-old Cole Sprouse starred in the Disney Channel’s “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody” alongside his identical twin brother, Dylan Sprouse. They were also the highest-paid teenage Disney television actors in 2010. Meanwhile, 20-year-old Lili Reinhart grew up acting in community theater since the age of 12. Prior to “Riverdale”, she starred “The Kings of Summer”, “Not Waving But Drowning”, and “Surviving Jack”. She will be next seen in Mélanie Laurent’s upcoming film “Galveston”.
