Great chemistry on-screen may result to great chemistry IRL, just ask actors who have found their spouses through film and TV projects they've worked together on. Such is the case for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris (who have now unfortunately broken up), Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, and Sarah Michelle Geller and Freddie Prinze Jr., among many others. One of today's newest "ships" is the pairing of "Riverdale" stars Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart, whose on-screen chemistry have sparked rumors of them dating in real life.

After many sightings of the pair being super close with each other in public, Sprouse is finally speaking out on the issue of whether or not they are together romantically.

Cole Sprouse is aware of fan reactions

When "Riverdale" returns this fall, it will find Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Jughead (Cole Sprouse) in a bind, as Jughead is now embracing his Serpent roots. This may drive a wedge between the two and fans are anticipating trouble in paradise for the pair. Their chemistry has been the talk of the general viewing public, and Sprouse is aware of how passionate fans are about their pairing. He told Entertainment Weekly that as "professional actors," it's a great accomplishment to have people want to see two people together in real life because their characters have great on-screen chemistry.

He said, "We can pat ourselves on the back for that and go, ‘This was a success.’ It was such a success that people want to see it in real life."

Actor does not deny or admit he's dating his co-star

Cole Sprouse's statements about "Riverdale" co-star Lili Reinhart do not deny or admit that he's dating her, however. He did share though that since all the talk of him and Reinhart dating are "based so much on rumor and hearsay," it must only be "taken with a grain of salt." He added that they're merely actors "interacting with the source material," in which their characters are dating.

He added however, that "It’s very pleasing that people talk about Lili and I in that way because it means that we’re resonating so strongly from our character perspective that people really want that to be true."

What's next for Bughead

Fans were so passionate about Betty and Jughead on "Riverdale" that they named the ship "Bughead." But it's not necessarily a happy ending from here on out, as Digital Spy reported that according to creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, there will be "a big divide and they start to be pulled away from each other" now that Jughead is going to South Side High. What becomes of these two, viewers will have to wait and see when "Riverdale" returns to The CW this October 11.
