Cole Sprouse, aka Ross' Son Ben from Friends, Admits He Was "In Love" With Jennifer Aniston All Along

Before taking the Tipton Hotel by storm on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, and starring as Jughead in Riverdale, Cole Sprouse played Ross Geller's son Ben on Friends.

While the former child star found working on Friends "really wonderful", the now 24-year-old has revealed he also found filming a little difficult...because he was so in love with Jennifer Aniston, who played Ross's on-off-and-on-again-and-then-off-again-and-then-on-again-once-more girlfriend, Rachel Green.

"I had a really, really hard time working with Aniston because I was so in love with her," he told the New York Post. "I was infatuated. I was speechless. I'd get all bubbly and forget my lines and completely blank. It was so difficult."

Sprouse is still called out for his work on the show by passersby, he added. "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 eight months old.

"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."
