Sprouse has opened up about being part of the show and having a crush on Aniston during several interviews

While appearing on CBS’ “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” in November 2018, the former Disney Channel star said he once forgot his lines on “Friends” because he liked Aniston. 

“I remember feeling so, so intimidated by my crush on her that I completely blanked and forgot every single one of my lines, and she just stared at me,” Sprouse said. 

He shared a similar memory on NBC’s “Today” show in 2019, saying:  “I remember there was a camera man who was like, ‘Little boy’s got a crush,’ or I forget what they said. Of course, I turned bright red. But I do remember feeling like I fell in love.”
