Move over, Vanessa Hudgens! There’s a new Disney Channel nude photo scandal in town — this time, it’s Dylan Sprouse, and he has arrived to dethrone you.
Two bathroom selfies (such a classic!) of the former Suite Life of Zack and Cody star leaked on Tumblr on Sunday, one where Dylan’s wearing only his boxers, and another where he’s totally in the buff. Yikes!
The 21-year-old actor isn’t one to deny that it’s him in the photos — he very quickly owned up on Twitter and has kept a pretty good sense of humor about the whole thing. “Whoops, guess I’m not 14 and fat anymore,” he tweeted. Later, he added, “I messed up... but I’d be a fool not to own up to it. Got to move past it I suppose.” We give Dylan props for the way he’s handling this unfortunate situation. When thousands of people have seen you naked, there are only two ways to handle the situation: be totally horrified and humiliated or laugh about it. We’re glad to see Dylan’s got this one under control.
Dylan even reblogged some of his favorite responses to the pictures on Tumblr. “Thanks for making me laugh through all of this,” he said.
Even Dylan’s brother, Cole, tweeted in support of his brother. Well, kind of. “Cold in that bathroom huh?” he said. “Love you too,” Dylan replied.
We’ve gotta wonder how many more nude photo leaks have to happen before these kids finally learn to keep their face out of the pictures — or, better yet, to avoid taking naked pictures altogether. Or would that be too easy?
