Nude leaks, just like sex tape leaks, are often released in a very controlled environment. There are exceptions, especially when the leaks are of A-list stars, but when it involves a D-list or C-list celebrity that no one knows exists, it’s almost always a publicity stunt. Now, who among us knew who Dylan Sprouse was before today? And who among us knows who he is after today? Exactly.
Dylan, best known for playing one of the leads on Disney’s The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, released several nude selfies of himself today. Well, he claims they were ‘leaked’, but let’s be real, the chances of that are pretty low. Alas, he claims to be pretty proud of the nudes, explaining, “To be blunt, I was proud of my progress in the gym, thought I looked hot, and wanted to share it.”However, he claims that the leak was due to someone else leaking the photos because he sent them to the wrong person, and that person betrayed his trust. A lot of hubbub for what could just be a very simple explanation, no?
Look, I don’t think anyone’s blaming the poor kid for trying to revive his career. An actor’s gotta do what an actor’s gotta do, and people much more famous than him have tried this stunt, with varying degrees of success. One the one hand, people remember who he is now and will know his name. But on the other, that memory will be associated with the nude leaks. So is it helpful or hurtful? It really depends on what he’s aiming for, I guess. But either way, don’t be surprised to see his name in the news a lot more come the next few months.
