Riverdale’s Camila Mendes Reveals Her & Charles Melton’s Hilarious Nicknames For Each Other
Sorry #Sprousehart shippers, but Camila Mendes and Charles Melton are proving that they have what it takes to be the cutest IRL Riverdale couple. The two may have only just started dating, but they seem smitten about one another and even have amazing nicknames for each other, too!
The actress, who plays Veronica Lodge on the hit CW series, walked the People’s Choice Awards red carpet without her boo, but he surprised her with a special video message. As Camila was being interviewed, E!‘s Jason Kennedy said she had a “fan question” and it was none other than Charles who asked, “What’s it like working with Charles Melton? You guys are really cute together.”
“It’s a lot, very intense,” she jokingly replied. “You can’t talk to him; you can’t look at him. He only eats cashews rolled in cheese… I actually taught him that snack, but you know, whatever.”
We love nothing more than knowing what goes on in our fave ships’ relationships and these two certainly always look like they’re having a good time on and off the Riverdale set. Luckily, the intimate details did not end there because the host then said Charles wanted him to ask, “Who’s baby dragon?”
“I’m baby dragon!” Camila explained before revealing that Charles chose it specifically for her. “I’m just like a baby dragon; it’s just like who I am inside. I’m kind of, you know, ferocious a little bit… like cute, but psycho. Cute but psycho like a baby dragon!”
LOL! We think it’s safe to say they’re both cute but psycho. Camila got Charles back though when she revealed her nickname for him, which is “nutcase… because he’s nuts.”
The pair’s public lovefest comes one week after Camila dragged a “fan” who dissed her and Charles’s relationship. Basically, an account on Instagram (which has now been deleted) posted two photos – one of Camila and Charles and another of her and ex-boyfriend Victor Houston before they broke up – alongside the caption, “Sorry but I have to post it. Cami looked happier with Victor.”
She caught wind of the photo and didn’t appreciate the person comparing her relationships. After all, who are they to judge, anyway? Not only is it none of anyone’s business, but pictures obviously do not tell the whole story – and Camila made sure to point that out.
“I feel silly responding to this but I also feel the impulse to tell you that you’re wrong. I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my life. It’s absurd to me that you call yourself a fan yet, your entire page is dedicated to disrespecting my relationship and my boyfriend,” she wrote in the comments. “I hope you’re young because that seems to be the only justification for this kind of immaturity.”
Based on this E! interview, she definitely looks happier than ever. The only thing cuter than their nicknames is Camila’s reaction when Charles pops up on the screen. Watch below:
