Here’s Why Camila Mendes Kept Her New Relationship Secret for Months

By  | 

Camila Mendes is usually super open about her life, talking candidly with fans about bullying, body image, relationships, etc. But when it comes to her relationship with new boyfriend Victor Houston, the 24-year-old has decided to keep her mouth shut.

Why is that, you may ask? Victor isn’t a celebrity, and the Riverdale actress respects that, just because she’s famous and everyone wants to know every detail about her life, doesn’t mean he should be subjected to public scrutiny.

She tells Nylon, “It’s somebody completely out of the industry. It’s funny because I’m more hesitant to talk about it because I don’t want him to read this… I actually would totally talk about it right now, if I didn’t feel like, ‘Wait, he might read this.'”

Cami tried to date her colleagues in the past, but eventually realized that she doesn’t “like actors.”

“It’s just dating people in the industry is tough,” she explains. “I did for a little bit. I’ve just dated actors. It’s hard when that’s your world. You only meet people through work and that can be really tough, because you’re not necessarily meeting people that you’re similar to. It’s just people that you’re with because you’re working on the same project.”

She continues, “Actors are really emotionally complicated,” she explains. “You would think they would be more in tune with their emotions, but sometimes they’re just not. I just really need to get out of this industry with someone who is in a stable environment.”

Makes sense, TBH.
