Being a child star is rough, but at least they had each other: Dylan and Cole Sprouse were SUPERSTARS for the Disney Channel. First they starred as one kid alongside Adam Sandler in Big Daddy, then they starred in The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, which became one of the most successful Disney Channel shows of all time!
Dylan and Cole even made it onto the top wealthiest teens list while they were doing it!
Then, they went even further with the 2008 spinoff The Suite Life on Deck, which further cemented their hold on Disney!
Something happened, then: they grew up. They were ready to take a more active role in the content they were making, and wanted to produce and help write the next spinoff series. What happened eventually led to them WALKING AWAY from it all!
You GOTTA hear the story, direct from Dylan's mouth (above). It's a perfect example of what the industry is like on a daily basis!
