'Riverdale' Stars Camila Mendes & Lili Reinhart's Friendship 'Wasn't Instant'

Camila Mendes and Lili Reinhart have the kind of natural friendship that makes it seem — at least to the outside observer — that they’ve been friends forever.

In a new interview, both Riverdale stars confirm that this was not at all the case.

Our friendship wasn’t instant,” Camila told J-14, “We both come from such different backgrounds that I think it took us a while to find some common ground.”

Fortunately, once they were comfortable with one another, they were really comfortable.

“Once the walls came down and our inner goofballs began to reveal themselves, we were unstoppable, and now it’s almost like we speak our own language,” she continued, “I’ve learned from Lili that the true value of a friend lies within their ability to listen. A good listener goes a long way.”

As for Lili, she says that while their friendship wasn’t instant, they did instantly “get along.”

“Friends push each other to leave their comfort zones, and Camila has definitely encouraged me to come out of my shell in social situations,” she said, “She’s a social butterfly and I’m more introverted. It’s a good balance.”
