‘Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart on Cole Sprouse: ‘I’m Not OK Talking About My Relationship’
Lili Reinhart may play somewhat of a sleuth on Riverdale, the hit CW teen drama on which she portrays Archie comics' iconic blonde Betty Cooper, but that doesn't mean she doesn't appreciate privacy when it comes to her real-life relationship with Cole Sprouse, a.k.a. Jughead on the show.
"I’m not OK talking about my relationship," Reinhart told Harper's Bazaar in a new interview. "I’m not going to tell you my love story. That’s just not appropriate right now."
The star also hit back at the rumors that she might be pregnant, which circulated online back in May due to a supposedly "unflattering photo," and which she has vehemently denied.
"People will always have something to say. I’ve accepted that. It doesn't mean it's not frustrating when people say those things. It's not like it just rolls off my back," she shared.
Despite her best efforts to keep her private life, well, private, speculation has nevertheless continued to follow the young star, even across the world — literally.
"People knew who I was in Hawaii, and people knew who I was in Paris. My cast mates have gone all over the world and people recognize them. It’s on a global scale," she said of the fame she's experienced since breaking out on Riverdale. "I'm a blonde white girl. I have sunglasses on and a hat. How do people look at me, and in an instant, they know? ... It's something I can't wrap my head around. I don't know how you ever can."
