Ben From Friends Is All Grown Up

19th Mar 2015

As if yesterday’s struggle to recover from our moderate Paddy’s Day celebrations didn’t make us feel old enough, we’ve just come across some pictures of Ross and Carol’s’son Ben?from Friends. That might not sound like a big deal until you realise one minor detail. He’s no longer a kid! In fact, he’s now a fully grown man.

Ben’s real name is Cole Sprouse. He starred in Friends between the ages of 8 and 10 but is now a very suave and sophisticated 22 year old. Of course, Friends wasn’t the only thing that Cole (and his twin brother Dylan) starred in when they were young. The twins also acted in Adam Sandler comedy Big Daddy.

Since Friends, the two lads become stars of kids television on the Disney channel starring in their own show The Suite Life of Zack & Cody which saw them become two of the wealthiest children alive by 2007. In 2010, the Sprouse brothers were the highest-paid teenage Disney television actors, earning $40,000 per episode combined. MSN’reported that by the end of the 2000s that the twin brothers had become the richest teenage twins in the world.

However, the twins have now put their acting careers on the back burner and are instead focusing on their studies as they attend New York University having received straight A grades while they were tutored between acting jobs. So there we have it. Intelligent, rich and stylish. When’s the next flight to New York!?
