In the “Archie” comics, it was Archie that Betty continually pined for, but in real life could she actually be romantically involved with Jughead?
That’s the report coming out of Comic-Con, with People reporting that “Riverdale” stars Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart (who play Jughead and Betty, respectively, in the “Archie”-inspired mystery series) are an item.
According to People, Sprouse, 24, and Reinhart, 20, were “seen canoodling, holding hands and kissing” at Entertainment Weekly‘s Comic-Con bash during the weekend.
So are they or aren’t they? As People notes, neither has publicly confirmed that they’re dating, but followers of Sprouse’s Instagram account wondered if love was in the air the actor (who formerly starred alongside twin brother Dylan in Disney Channel hit “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody”) posted a photo of Reinhart sitting amidst a field of flowers.
More evidence emerged on Aug. 5 when Reinhart posted a sweet Instagram post honouring Sprouse on his birthday.
“To the man who has showed me more beautiful places in this past year than I have ever seen in my whole life. Happy birthday, Cole,” she writes. “Thank you for all the adventures and here’s to many more to come.”
