Lili Reinhart, KJ Apa & Camila Mendes Rock Jughead's Signature Beanie

Lili Reinhart, KJ Apa & Camila Mendes Rock Jughead's Signature Beanie

Jughead wouldn’t be Jughead without his crown beanie — but it turns out that the entire Riverdale cast can rock that thing.

Cole Sprouse snapped his cast mates in Jughead’s signature headgear on the set last night in Vancouver, Canada — and they all look so cool.

The beanie — a whoopee cap — actually has a really special meaning behind it with the series and the original comics. It was really popular with young people right around the time Jughead made his comic book debut in 1941.

Factory workers actually used to invert their felt fedoras and chop off the brims so their eyesight wouldn’t be restricted while working. When they got new hats, they’d pass their old hat down to their kids.

Check out Lili Reinhart, KJ Apa and Camila Mendes rocking the cap below:

Camila MendesRiverdale character Veronica Lodge wants to start fresh when she moves to the small town.

Veronica wants to become a better person and move past her “mean girl” past.

Now, Camila is turning this plot line into a statement and a powerful campaign.

The actress posted her new t-shirt design to Instagram this week, a white shirt with an image of a girl who doesn’t look unlike Camila herself that reads “Reformed Mean Girl” in purple script.

“so I designed a t-shirt with the help of my friends at Represent,” Camila writes, “proceeds will benefit the Kind Campaign, a non-profit organization that brings awareness to girl-against-girl bullying. only available for two weeks! link in bio.”

It’s seriously cute, and benefits an amazing cost. Check it out below:

Camila Mendes Talks Varchie on 'Riverdale': 'They've Definitely Been Friskier'

Camila Mendes Talks Varchie on 'Riverdale': 'They've Definitely Been Friskier'

While Bughead may be on the rocks a bit on Riverdale, Varchie is heating up.

Camila Mendes didn’t waste any time in saying that Veronica and Archie are “even more sexual now” in season two, while chatting with EW.

She adds, “Death brings out certain passions or thirst for life. So they’ve definitely been friskier.”

However, that doesn’t mean that’s all this couple is about: “I think now because of all this darkness and stuff in Archie’s life and Veronica’s as well, their relationship does feel more grounded,” Camila says.

“It has more substance than just physical.”

Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa says about this couple that “it’s sort of a bit more primal and volatile than say Jughead and Betty are.”

Riverdale returns on Wednesday, October 11th on The CW.

Camila Mendes Wants To Shatter Your Assumptions About Latinas To Pieces

Camila Mendes Wants To Shatter Your Assumptions About Latinas To Pieces

Camila Mendes isn’t a fan of the phrase “You’re Not Latina Enough”, and for good reason — it’s backwards and she’s not afraid to say so.

The Riverdale actress spoke with People Chica about the stigma around Latinas in Hollywood and how she’s trying to shatter it into pieces.

“I’m pretty new to Hollywood, but I’m already starting to see the issues in how some projects are cast,” Camila shares. “I often hear things like, “You don’t look Latina enough,” and that mentality is so backwards.”

She adds, “The fact is: I am Latina, so how are you going to tell me that I don’t look Latina?”

Amen, Camila!

“I’m a full-blooded Brazilian, with an entire extended family of Brazilians, but I was born and raised in the U.S.,” she adds about her cultural heritage. “When I go to Brazil, I feel like an American, and in the U.S., I always notice the traits that make me Brazilian.”

Camila Mendes Reveals She Just Started Seeing A Therapist & She's 'Stoked' About It

Many celebrities have been real advocates about going to therapy and talking with someone about anything and everything — and you can count Camila Mendes as one of them.

In a new feature from Byrdie, the Riverdale star reveals that she just started going to therapy.

“I’m super stoked about it,” she shares. “It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, and considering how much my life has changed this year, I thought it was about time I check in with myself.”

Camila adds, “It’s been really difficult adjusting to the pace of this industry, everything moves so quickly and people are constantly coming at you with endless demands. I’ve had to make room in my life for so many new people and work obligations, that now I barely have time for myself, not to mention my family and friends.

“So to have that slotted time once a week to focus on myself is so essential to my well-being.”
