Dylan Sprouse, star of the Disney Channel’s The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, had nude photos of himself leaked Sunday on Tumblr. The leak reportedly came from a former girlfriend, and were supposed to be private.
Instead of staying silent about the leaked photos, Sprouse, 21, has tweeted about them, saying, “Whoops, guess I’m not 14 and fat anymore” and “I messed up… but I’d be a fool not to own up to it. Got to move past it I suppose.” Which sounds like a healthy attitude. His twin brother, Cody, teased him about the photo on Twitter, asking Sprouse, “Cold in that bathroom huh?” Both brothers appears to have a good sense of humor about the supposed scandal.
Two photos were leaked on Tumblr. One shows a selfie of Sprouse wearing boxer briefs, and another shows him naked cupping his genitals. Predictably, the photos went viral within minutes of appearing online.
Sprouse, who now works as a video game developer, was bound to join the ranks of Disney stars who got into trouble with naked photos. Two such stars, Miley Cyrus and Vanessa Hudgens, aren’t exactly suffering but there was plenty of backlash. However, Sprouse is out of the limelight now and is no longer a part of Disney. If he was, perhaps his attitude would have been different but as it is, he’s handling this “naked” development pretty well. He even went on his Tumblr page to share some of the humorous responses to his naked photos.
Other celebrities go nude on social media

As a result, she had her Instagram account suspended.
