“Riverdale” actress Lili Reinhart is rumoured to be dating her co-star and on-screen on/off beau Cole Sprouse and she’s now gushed about the actor in a new interview.
Reinhart, 21, may be fairly new to the world of showbiz, but she insisted Sprouse, 25, who has grown up in the industry, has helped her stay grounded.
She told Ocean Drive magazine: “He really brings us down to earth if we’re feeling like something we’ve said is being taken out of context. He’s always the one to be like, ‘Just ignore it. It will blow over.’ It’s a nice, calming energy he has because you know that he’s been through it.”
The candid chat also saw Reinhart discuss her character Betty and her “dark” side.
“I relate most with her darkness,” the actress explained. “What I bring to Betty is her real anxiety about things and the stress she’s under because I get easily overwhelmed and stressed out. I have anxiety.”
The star added of her own battle with depression, “I struggled with [depression] so much and for so long. And I know so many other young people have, and I didn’t have someone who was talking about it.
“I remember being in middle and high school and hearing Demi Lovato speak up about her mental illness and that was comforting. But I wanted more people to stand up. I needed more people to relate to.”
