Zack & Cody Turns 10, The Twins Are All Grown Up

The Suite Life of Zack & Cody celebrates its tenth birthday today, and you know what that means. The twin brothers who starred in the show are all grown up, and (yikes!) they are some handsome young gentlemen. Cole Sprouse, who played the just slightly older twin Cody, is about to graduate from NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study with a degree in archeology and the humanities. His twin, Dylan, who played Zack, is also at Gallatin; he's working towards a degree in video game design. (Is it weird that a degree in video game design seems more sensible than archeology? Oh, the 21st century!)  Not only are they ridiculously good looking, but they both seem to have excellent senses of humor, and they're smart dudes. In December 2013, some nude photos of Dylan were leaked by the person he sent them to, and while he and his twin both joked about it on Twitter, Dylan issued a thoughtful but humorous statement later.  "First off, I will state that the reason I'm making light of the situation is because I don't think what I did was wrong. To be blunt, I was proud of my progress in the gym, thought I looked hot, and wanted to share it. 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! You do you." He added, "the real problem here was not me sending my pictures to someone, but rather, sending them to the WRONG someone...I'm to blame and I'll look this incident in the eye like a man. I did it, but I'd be damned if I didn't own that shit like Beyonce would want me to." "What would Beyonce do?" is a question most people ask themselves at least once a day, so #respect. And, happy birthday Zack & Cody. What a Suite Life it is. (MTV) Editor's Note: An earlier version of this story including a link to a site featuring Dylan's leaked photos.
