‘Riverdale’ actor had a crush on Jennifer Aniston when he was starring as Ben on ‘Friends’
Cole Sprouse had a hard time working with Jennifer Aniston because he had a major crush on her
In his recent interview, the actor revealed that working with Jennifer Aniston wasn’t as easy as it seemed. While playing Ross Geller’s son Ben on the set of Friends Cole found working with co-star Aniston to actually be really difficult and here is why.
“I had a really, really hard time working with Aniston because I was so in love with her,” he explained. “I was infatuated. I was speechless — I’d get all bubbly and forget my lines and completely blank. It was so difficult,” the 25-year-old confessed.
The actor was around eight years old when he was on 'Friends' but like every other American in the 90s, he had a major crush on Aniston. Aniston hasn't said anything about it yet but we do know he is so well-loved as Jughead Jones, as of today, in the TV series 'Riverdale', which is based on the characters by Archie Comics.
Cole Sprouse went on to play Cody on 'The Suite Life of Zack and Cody' and 'The Suite Life on Deck' on the Disney Channel along with his twin brother, Dylan Sprouse. However, he says that people still recognize him as Ben and that he will still turn around if someone calls him so on the streets.
“I was only in seven episodes, but it’s funny now that people are recognizing me for that because my brother and I have been working since we were 8 months old,” he said, adding, “Because Friends is on Netflix, there’s a renewed interest from that. ... People can call me ‘Ben’ on the street and I will turn around.”
Cole Sprouse is currently playing the role of Jughead Jones in Riverdale which airs on The CW on Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET. And Friends reruns air pretty much all the time on TBS… or anytime you want them on Netflix.
