What. A. Relief.
If you have been experiencing emotional turmoil over the past few months in regards to the uncertainty of Riverdale co-stars Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse’s relationship, we’ve got some good news for you.
In a recent interview with Coveteur, the Hustlers actress (who was recently in Toronto for TIFF to promote the new film) described Cole as her boyfriend when speaking about Halloween costumes, of all things. The publication asked about her special-effect makeup skills and whether or not she’d be employing them for this year’s event, to which she answered, “Oh my god, I haven’t done that in a really long time, actually. I kind of went from special-effects makeup to face painting. So I’ve done a lot in the past. Now I don’t really have the time, which sounds so stupid, but I really don’t. It takes a lot of time to do those things. I think I’m leaning towards a character for Halloween. I think I’m going to do it with my boyfriend, Cole. I don’t want to spoil it if it’s not going to happen, but it’s a TV duo.” She added that there will be no special effects, “but maybe a wig.”
The confirmation comes after months of speculation that the pair had parted ways after two years of dating. The rumours began following an all-cast appearance at Comic Con in July, however the pair appeared on the cover of W magazine just days later, taking to Instagram to clap back at the rumours seemingly saying they were untrue, without actually saying that. Cole then said speculation about their relationship came with the territory of being famous but again did not confirm their actual status. All in all it left everyone very confused, however Lili has now officially set the record straight.
Bring on Halloween!
