Deny, deny, deny. That seems to be Cole Sprouse‘s modus operandi when it comes to addressing the rumors. In an interview with People magazine, the child star-turned-adult heartthrob mentioned the various “dating scandals” surrounding the series, including rumors that he was involved with his Riverdale costar Camila Mendes, who plays the character Veronica Lodge. And, of course, he had to address the Reinhart speculation, as well.
“I am flattered!” he said in regards to the all of the gossip. “If I were to talk to my own self about this it would be like, ‘No way.’ Lili and I are constantly talked about in the public eye, and for me I think that it is being deeply informed by the love of the characters and wanting to see us together.”
Well, he has a point there. Viewers have been shipping Sprousehart since season 1 when he climbed through her window, called her “Juliet,” and planted a kiss smack dab on her lips. While our hearts fluttered watching the two actors seal the deal on the small screen, we were shattered when Sprouse called the intrusion into his love life “offensive and an invasion of privacy.”
Using Reinhart and the word “offensive” in the same sentence almost seems taboo, but Sprouse didn’t stop there…
