Turns out Selena Gomez and Cole Sprouse is the friendship we needed all along.
Gomez posted a video on her Instagram from her childhood home which had the internet talking. The walls of her bedroom were covered in teenage-inspired writing.
Like any other person that age, Gomez had fantasised herself with other guys. One scribble read “Selena + Cole Sprouse forever”. Another one read “Selena + Juan”.
She captioned the photo, “Apparently my heart was very conflicted between Juan and Cole Sprouse when I was 11.” Cole responded to Gomez, writing “always Juan-upping me.”
At the time when Gomez posted this, Sprouse had just been on Friends and she was on Barney.
Funnily enough, Gomez’s first kiss was with Sprouse’s brother Dylan. She appeared on an episode of The Suite Life Of Zack And Cody in 2006. Her character was dating Cody (Cole) and kissed Zack (Dylan).
In 2018, Dylan said, “There’s a lot of sad, depressing first-kiss stories. I was a chubby lad and I wasn’t very successful with women for a long time, but I think my first kiss was on a set and I think it might have been with Selena Gomez.”
Currently, Cole is in a relationship with Lili Reinhart. The two star on Riverdale together. In an interview with a magazine, Reinhart confirmed their relationship when discussing Halloween.
She said, “Oh my god, I haven’t done [special effects makeup] in a really long time, actually. I kind of went from special-effects makeup to face painting. So I’ve done a lot in the past. Now I don’t really have the time, which sounds so stupid, but I really don’t. It takes a lot of time to do those things. I think I’m leaning in towards a character for Halloween. I think I’m going to do it with my boyfriend, Cole. I don’t want to spoil it if it’s not going to happen, but it’s a TV duo.”
It might not be happening anytime soon (if ever), but a potential Selena Gomez and Cole Sprouse dream never hurt anyone.
