Cole Sprouse Says He Wrote Kissing Scenes with Lili Reinhart Into Contract

By  | 

To be quite honest, we think Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse are bigger Bughead shippers than most fans. Just a day after the 21-year-old actress shot down the possibility of a Betty-Archie romance on Riverdale, the 25-year-old actor revealed that execs are “contractually obliged” to let him kiss his rumored girlfriend as much as possible on the show. OKAY. IT’S FINE. WE’RE FINE.

The former Disney Channel star appeared on LIVE with Kelly and Ryan this morning when they played a clip of his character, Bughead Jones, smooching Betty Cooper in a previous episode of The CW’s hit television drama. When host Kelly Ripa asked “what’s in store for Betty and Jughead this season,” he bashfully responded:

“A little bit more of that, which is gonna be good. They’re contractually obliged to give me as many kiss scenes as possible; I wrote it into my contract.”

Okay, so Cole was probably joking, but that doesn’t make us swoon any less. AND, can we just talk about how the blonde recently said she feels “very comfortable” making out with the Suite Life star at this point.

“I mean, it’s The CW; you’re not going to get too crazy,” Lili explained. “It’s just like kissing and hugging… But it’s easy, we’re all friends. It would be more nerve-racking if you had to make out with someone that you didn’t know. So, if by chance we do end up having to kiss each other, it’s fine and it doesn’t feel weird.”

Perhaps LR feels so comfortable smooching CS because they have quite a lot of practice doing just that outside of work hours…ya know, when they’re vacationing together, going on movie dates, etc. #justsayin

A new episode of Riverdale airs tonight, so hopefully we’ll see more of the making out that Cole promised would come.
