"[His crush] actually made it quite difficult to work in front of her I must admit," he divulged. "I was a child. I would stammer a lot, and I would forget my lines.
"I feel like I'd maintain my composure a bit more effectively now, but it was quite difficult when I was a kid."
"I was teased a little bit by the crew, because they saw it. I would just forget, and be looking at her. But then, the whole world had a crush on Jennifer Aniston," he added.
Sprouse appeared in seven episodes as Ben and went on to forge a successful career with his twin brother on the Disney Channel in their roles as Cody and Zack Martin in The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and its spin-off, Suite Life on Deck.
