Camila Mendes is so proud of Charles Melton. On Monday, the notoriously private couple gave us a little glimpse of their romance as they attended Charles's Los Angeles premiere of The Sun Is Also a Star. While on the red carpet, the two let their love shine bright as they held hands, laughed with each other, and posed for a handful of adorable photos. At one point, Charles even gave Camila a sweet kiss on the head.
Of course, their red carpet PDA was no match for Camila's sweet love note to Charles on Instagram. Ahead of the premiere, the Riverdale actress detailed how proud she was of her boyfriend for this role. She also revealed that his passion for the project was actually one of the reasons she fell in love with him. "Aside from having the biggest heart out of anyone I know, his passion and tenacity are part of the reason I fell in love with him," she explained. "Watching him throw his entire heart and soul into this story of love taught me a lot about the kind of person he is."
She continued, "I'm probably sharing too much, but before we started dating he'd often get mad at me for trying to bring logic into love. he taught me that love doesn't have an explanation, it either exists or it doesn't. It was his vulnerability not only as an actor, but also as a man, that taught me that valuable message, one that is so relevant to this film. I'm so proud of you Charles, and so grateful to have witnessed this beautiful journey of yours. Can't wait for the world to see what you're capable of."
