Friends fanatics will remember Cole Sprouse, one of the hugely famous Sprouse twins, taking the role of baby Gellar at the time the show was on air – from the 90s to the 00s.
As he’s grown, though, it’s given him plenty of time since then to think back and reflect on how it felt to work with one of the most widely known actresses on the planet… All when he was only 8 years old!
Now 24, Cole has recently confessed: “I had a really, really hard time working with Aniston because I was so in love with her. I was infatuated.”
“I was speechless – I’d get all bubbly and forget my lines and completely blank,” he said. “It was so difficult.”
Oooh! Looks like baby Cole really did have his first ever crush. And really, no one can blame him.
Cole has also suggested that he had very little idea of how famous Friends actually was, but he still admits to feeling the pressure.
“The scale was just tremendous and you felt it when you stepped on the set, even as a kid. It was challenging because I was a small kid who was working with these sort of megalithic actors at the time.
“It was quite intimidating. But it was a really wonderful experience. They were all tremendously nice.”
Cole went on to talk about how he’s still recognised from Friends, even today.
