Former-Disney Star Dylan Sprouse Calls B.S. On Joe Jonas' Criticism Of The Company

Page 1 of 212

Earlier this week, Joe Jonas made the news when an open letter he penned was published in the latest issue of the New York magazine, Vulture, a letter in which the former Disney star tore into the company that launched him to stardom, slamming them for restricting his and his brother's creative freedom. Jonas ripped the company for being too overbearing and for putting too much pressure on its younger stars, however his sentiment is not shared by all of the Disney alum.

Jonas moaned that Disney restricted his creativity and refused him and his brothers the chance to branch out musically by dictating their career. Joe recalled with horror the times he was forced to shave everyday in order to retain his youthful appearance and went on to criticise the company for trying to maintain its image as a family company by supposedly putting Vanessa Hudgens on lockdown following her nude photo scandal in 2007. But fellow one-time Disney fledgling Sprouse reckons the Jonas bro is being a Jonas biatch, claiming the 24-year-old must have been too busy enjoying the highs of fame during his Disney days to actually confront the company and tell them "no."

"I think it's bullsh*t that they were being robbed of choice or creativity," Sprouse, 21, wrote on his Tumblr page on Monday, 2 December. "If they wanted to, they could have told Disney 'NO.' Cole and I did this hundreds of times and we ended up all right. The only reason they didn't is because, like many of the people on that channel, I think they fell for the allure of fame. Granted, Cole and I had been acting our entire lives, so we saw it as a means to an end (money making) rather than an opportunity to become successful."
