    Camila Mendes, Lili Reinhart, And Madelaine Petsch Really "Bonded" After Going Through Pandemic Breakups Together

    “It’s really nice to have them."

    This past year, Riverdale costars Camila Mendes, Lili Reinhart, and Madelaine Petsch learned they have a lot more in common than they think.

    Mendes recently talked about how much closer the trio has grown while they've all been healing from breakups. “We all got out of relationships at the same time and then went through this pandemic together,” Mendes told Paper magazine.

    “And now we’ve been bonded by how much change has happened," she continued. "Me, Madelaine, and Lili, specifically, we’ve never been closer than we are this season.”

    “It’s really nice to have them, to feel like I do have friendships here — meaningful ones,” Mendes added.

    Mendes reportedly split from her photographer boyfriend, Grayson Vaughn, in March 2021. She previously dated her Riverdale costar Charles Melton from 2018 to 2019. Reinhart also dated her Riverdale costar Cole Sprouse on and off for three years until they officially split in May 2020. Meanwhile, Petsch and Travis Mills announced their breakup in February 2020 after three years together.

    After the trio became closer, they started to make a bunch of fun TikToks of them hanging out and singing different songs.

    In one clip, Mendes jokingly told Reinhart that Harry Styles is the "hottest wizard" in Harry Potter and that her biggest fear was the "third grade."

    And in another, Petsch and Mendes hilariously danced to Cardi B’s “WAP” song on camera.
