Regarding Sprousehart Interview
Guys, did you REALLY honestly think Cole and Lili would flat out admit that they are dating in a random interview? These two people who are so private and have been super careful with their personal lives. No way.
Also, if you watched the interview carefully, neither of them truly denied anything. Neither Cole nor Lili said “We are not dating.” Instead, they focused on the photo session and how it was just them taking pix. And Cole tried to make it a no big deal thing by saying he’d do that for anyone. Well, have you seen Cole take these kind of intimate photos of Cami or any of his other female co-stars in that sort of a road trip alone setting?
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve heard co-stars say they are just friends and focus on that. Heck, lots of actors even released OFFICIAL press releases denying dating rumors…only later to announce engagement or a baby on the way. Ginny/Josh from Once Upon a Time released a statement denying the dating rumors…yet hello, they already married with two kids. Keri/Matthew from The Americans ALSO released an official statement saying that they are not dating. Yet now that they have a BABY together and are living together, they finally talk about their relationship.
The point is that actors are smart enough to know that media and too much focus can ruin a relationship. So all actors TRY to avoid the dating stuff. Avoidance to dating rumors…even going as far as releasing STATEMENTS of denial only later to either get married or have a baby.
THAT BEING said, it’s Lili and Cole’s PRIVATE life. So the interviewer should NEVER have asked that personal question. That Paley event was for the show.
Give Lili and Cole credit for giving smart and generic answers by avoiding the topic and focusing on a simple “friendly” photo session. (those pix are not even the real proof of them dating…detective fans have plenty of evidence!)
