Dylan Sprouse seems to be doing all the right things amid his nude photo scandal.
On Monday naked selfies of the former Disney star were leaked online. Sprouse quickly made a recovery by hopping on his Twitter to make light of the situation, saying, “Whoops, guess I’m not 14 and fat anymore,” later adding, ”I messed up… but I’d be a fool not to own up to it. Got to move past it I suppose.” Dylan also added “n00d pic dealer” to his Twitter bio.
Now, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody star has taken to his Tumblr to post a very honest and insightful letter.
“I’m proud of my progress in the gym, thought I looked hot and wanted to share it,” Dylan, who once struggled with being the “fat kid,” explained. “I’m of the mindset that whoever you are, if you are proud of your body and want to show it off, so be it. There is an odd taboo with the human form (especially in the USA) and I don’t particularly think it’s a good thing to teach people that you should ‘hide yourself’ … that’s a medieval notion.”
The star continues that the real scandal is the betrayal of someone who was once very close to him. Sprouse wrote, “The real travesty is a misplaced trust. The real problem was not me sending my pictures to someone, but rather sending them to the wrong someone.”
Aww, what a cutie!
