Lili Reinhart Says KJ Apa Is Superhuman, Runs 'Extraordinarily Fast'

Lili Reinhart Says KJ Apa Is Superhuman, Runs 'Extraordinarily Fast'

If you saw last week’s episode of Riverdale, then you may have seen Lili Reinhart and KJ Apa running pretty fast.

The 21-year-old actress dished on filming the scene with her co-star and how she was shocked at herself.

“I was surprised by my stamina and how much I was able to run. But then you see K.J. rocketing past me!” Lili told Glamour.

K.J. is a superhuman. He can run really fast,” she added. “And I can run really fast—and I was running really fast—but then compared to K.J. I look like I’m going pretty slowly and am a wimp. K.J. is just extraordinarily fast. I’m not slow. So I want that on the record!”

Lili Reinhart & KJ Apa Dish About What Betty & Archie's Kiss in 'Riverdale' Really Means

Lili Reinhart & KJ Apa Dish About What Betty & Archie's Kiss in 'Riverdale' Really Means

During last night’s Riverdale midseason finale, Barchie fans got what they’ve been waiting for — a kiss!

Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Archie (KJ Apa) shared a sweet kiss in the car after solving the mystery around Black Hood — but what does it actually mean?

With Bughead over, is Varchie next? How are they going to explain this to Veronica and Jughead…or are they at all? What is going on?!

“I feel like there’s going to be a freak out, but I think they’re going to try and calm themselves down by saying it wasn’t really romantic and was kind of in the heat of the moment,” Lili told Glamour about how she thinks the fans will respond. “Like, it wasn’t premeditated.”

“It wasn’t really a romance that was building necessarily; it was just something that happened really quickly, and I think that’s what is going to keep the Bughead fans at ease.”

While she’s a pure Bughead shipper herself, that doesn’t mean Lili is counting Barchie out of the game either.

“There are people who do enjoy Betty and Archie together and are excited to see that relationship, so I’m happy for them,” she shared. “[At the same time,] I’m also kind of sad for the Bughead fans because they see this other coupling that they don’t like coming together.”

For KJ, he’s one of the ones who doesn’t pay attention to the ship fandoms all that much.

“I really don’t, to be honest,” he shared with ET. “I try not to look at that stuff. I just go with [the Riverdale scripts] one hundred percent.”

However, he does know that Bughead fans will be vocal about it: “I think the Bughead fans might not be happy,” he shared. “But if they’re confident Bughead fans, then they’ve got nothing to worry about.”

“The few Barchie fans that are out there will think that it’s pretty good, I guess.”

Riverdale will return on Wednesday, January 17, 2018.

KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, and Madelaine Petsch look on at a school dance in this Riverdale parody for the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Jimmy Fallon made a parody of their hit show using teenage Charlie Brown characters.

“What are they doing?” Lili asks. Madelaine retorts, “is that like dancing?”

“This is very weird,” Camila adds, before KJ chimes in, “it’s crazy, so crazy. I actually just wrote a song about it. You guys wanna hear it?”

“NO!” everyone else responds. Check it out below!

Riverdale's KJ Apa Has Already Put Out A Full-Length Album

We don’t know if you know this or not, but KJ Apa is a seriously talented guy.

Not only is he the best Archie Andrews on Riverdale, but can really, really, really play the guitar — so well, in fact, that he already released an album!

It dropped back in 2011 and is called The Third Room, with all the tracks written by KJ.

“The album reflects modern free-flowing fusion-rock beats with a hint of Latin rock in some tracks,” the description reads.

“It all started three years ago when I heard a mate playing ‘Hotel California,’” KJ himself adds. “I immediately knew that I wanted to be the best guitarist in the world. I still do!”

Listen to it all HERE, and then treat yourself to a street performance, too!

Shawn Mendes & KJ Apa Have A Super Secret Project Coming

Earlier this month, Shawn Mendes and KJ Apa caught up with one another at the 2017 American Music Awards and it had fans freaking out.

Turns out that the two actually are friends and have a secret project coming up!

Speaking with The Edge, Shawn shared that he loves KJ and “did something with him, that I can’t really talk about, because maybe it’ll be something in the future.”

“He’s incredible,” he continued. “And it [the project] was before Riverdale started taking off, it was so cool to see all this stuff happen for him.”

Shawn adds, “I hadn’t seen him since then and I saw him two days ago at the AMAs and it was really cool to see him again.”

We need to know all about this super secret project asap!

Cole Sprouse Turns To 'Riverdale' Co-Star KJ Apa For Fitness Inspiration

Cole Sprouse Turns To 'Riverdale' Co-Star KJ Apa For Fitness Inspiration

We’d have to use so many hands to count how many times we’ve seen KJ Apa working out on social media, and while at first it put off his co-stars, Cole Sprouse actually turns to him for some fitness tips.

“It’s good being on a show with people like KJ who are monsters,” Cole shared with People mag. “He’s ripped, he’s been ripped since he was like 10.”

He adds, “It’s nice going to the gym with dudes like that because I just mimic what they are doing and by proxy I get an exercise I never thought I would be able to get, which is one of the perks of being on a teen drama.”

Cole also spoke about what his workout actually looks like in the gym and how he prepares for certain scenes.

“I focus on different parts of the body on different days,” he says. “It’s usually high intensity circuits and a lot of body weight stuff. I’m not looking to put on too much weight through weight training, so it kind of depends on the scene.”

Cole continues, “If we have a prospect of a shirtless scene coming up, I usually go a little harder in the four weeks prior than otherwise, but yeah, it’s important to stay physically fit.”

Riverdale airs Wednesdays @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.
