Courageous Riverdale stars Camila Mendes and Lili Reinhart have lashed out at their body-shamers in the past.
Now, for her 22nd birthday, Lili is showing off her body with a topless photo.
Sometimes, the best way to drown out the haters is to remind them how amazing you are. Take a look:
Cole Sprouse posted the photo that you’re about to see to wish a happy birthday to his co-star and girlfriend, Lili Reinhart.
Lili turned 22 years old on Thursday, September 13.
“Both the birthday and the gift,” Cole writes.
“My little muse,” the 26-year-old actor calls her. “Happy birthday my love.”
In the photo, Lili is gazing into the mirror while topless.
The photo was shared to Instagram, where of course women’s nipples are infamously singled out for restriction.
For the longest time, Cole and Lili were simply rumored to be in a relationship.
Gradually, however, they made things official.
The two of them play love interests Betty Cooper and Jughead on The CW’s hit drama,Â Riverdale.
And, just last month, Lili gave Cole a shoutout over his birthday.
Cole’s birthday was August 4, and Lili posted this photo of him with a tribute of her own.
“It seems as if the world would still be a stranger to me, if not for you,” Lili wrote.
Lili’s sweet post continued: “Iâ€™m so thankful that our paths intertwined to form this beautiful adventure.”
Finally, she signed off: “Happy birthday, my love.”
That is so precious! We love that their birthdays are so close.
Riverdale is a hit for good reason.
The teen demogrpahic can watch it at more or less face value, for the relationships — Betty and Jughead, known by shippers asÂ Bughead, being they keystone of fan interest.
Adults — or anyone over 25, basically — can enjoy the show for its surreal artistry and for its almost satirical nature.
From Cheryl Blossom’s magnificent wardrobe to the peculiarities ofÂ Riverdale‘s setting, older fans enjoy the show in the way that they once enjoyedÂ Gossip GirlÂ andÂ Veronica Mars.
It doesn’t hurt that all of the main characters’ parents are played by some of the biggest stars of the ’90s. (Anyone else feel old?)
The popularity of Riverdale led to the greenlighting of a related property.
The Chilling Adventures of SabrinaÂ premieres on Netflix next month, and we already know that there will be a second season.
It will be nothing like the Melissa Joan Hart adaptation, and viewers can instead expect satanism and cannibalism, just like in the comics on which the series will be based.
We hope that the stars from both shows — shows which are linked in the comics — will work together on crossovers, even if it’s just cameos.
Betty and Veronica play a key role early on in Sabrina’s comics — we wonder if Lili Reinhart will make an appearance.
