    "Also her movie comes out soon! I’m sure she’s just as incredible in it as everything else she does. Thanks guys ❤️."

    Cole's unexpected personal post came shortly after Lili's Refinery29 interview went live, in which she discussed her experience with depression.

    In the interview, Lili said, "The last couple of months have probably [been] the most emotional few months of my entire life."

    She also expressed the amount of vulnerability she poured into her forthcoming book of poems, called Swimming Lessons.

    I felt the need to write that because I was scared — and I am scared — that people are going to try and create their own idea of what my love life looked or looks like. I'm not saying, My boyfriend fucked another woman. I'm saying, I felt betrayed.

    After the interview went public, Lili clarified that the quotes used were about depression and not her breakup with Cole.

    I would never speak so candidly about something as personal as a breakup. That’s incredibly private. I was addressing my depression.

    Both Cole and Lili have remained quite private about their on-again, off-again relationship, which reportedly began in July 2017 after the actors met on the set.

    Dealing with breakup rumors, cheating rumors, and everything in between, the pair have typically used humor to address any story about them, without giving away too much information.
