Keep calm Bughead fans, but it looks like real-life Bughead is finally official!
After several months of refusing to answer questions about whether they are a couple off-screen, Riverdale stars Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse walked the red carpet together at the 2018 Met Gala, and while they might not be vocally confirming their relationship — a picture is worth a thousand words.
The two didn’t just walk the red carpet together either, they posed looking lovingly into each other’s eyes and with Reinhart’s hand on Sprouse’s chest, definitely signaling a romance between the two.
Reinhart, who plays Betty Cooper on the hit teen series wore a custom H&M dress that was “inspired by armor” and made of silver lame organza. The dress features a, “high-shine waist corset, creating a dramatic contrast between control and flow. The corset was decorated with chunky metal chains in antique silver, while silver lame organza was draped first as a mini-skirt, before billowing into a long train.”
Sprouse, who plays Reinhart’s on-screen boyfriend Jughead Jones, wore a long black suit coat and cropped pants by Thom Browne. “The first time that I walked in there [Thom Browne] I tried to pitch carrying a sword,” he told Vogue on the red carpet. “We are all coming from different entertainment backgrounds and the actor in me was desperate for a little role-play tonight.”
Prior to their red carpet debut the two made a point of not talking about whether they were or were not in a relationship no matter how many times people asked. “Because 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,” Sprouseexplained. “So I just never talk about it because it’s not anyone’s right to know. People can speculate all they want, people speculate about 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.”
