Cole Sprouse Won't Be Confirming a Relationship With Lili Reinhart Or Anyone Else - Here's Why

Cole Sprouse is a guy who likes to keep private things private, which is why as much as we ship him with Riverdale co-star Lili Reinhart in real life, we won’t get a confirmation from either of them.

The actor/photographer opened up to People about the rumors surrounding not just him and Lili, but the entire Riverdale cast.

“I think that in many ways it’s offensive and an invasion of privacy,” he says. “But it’s also a badge of honor because it means you’re creating a chemistry onscreen that is so understandable that people want to see it in real life, which is flattering from a professional perspective.”

So when you ask him about Sprousehart being real, expect to get a “no comment” right back.

“Whether you dismiss those rumors or whether you encourage those rumors, it’s giving people who are in my opinion are a bit entitled to your personal life more power, and you have to have spaces for reverence in the industry,” Cole shares. “Going to college made me realize you have to have real spaces of privacy and you have to establish those early.”

He references Ryan Gosling as a perfect example of controlling your right to privacy.

“Gosling has been in a much more sexual or romantic side of the industry than many actors have to be, and his marriage is not publicized and talked about and beaten over people’s heads because people respect that he set those boundaries early,” he shared. “And that’s the same thing, the more you let people in on that, the more people feel entitled to it and the more it becomes problematic with whoever you end up being with in the future, so I take that very seriously.”

Cole adds, “I just never talk about it because it’s not anyone’s right to know. People can speculate all they want, people speculate me with every member of the cast practically, but it’s really no one’s right to know. It’s also sexy, these parts of the relationships that are just yours.”
