Despite rising to fame as a child in movies like Big Daddy and TV shows like Friends and, of course, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, he does NOT like to be referred to as a 'former child star'.
"That term is so derogatory. Isn't it always derogatory? Even 'young actor' sounds better," Dylan explains in a new interview with Vulture.
"You're already in a box. But they put you in a smaller box inside that box. It also implies past tense. It implies you've already failed, right? I was actually naïve enough to think that people wouldn’t think of it in that way."
He went on to open up about struggling to "unlearn" certain things that he learned as a child in the spotlight.
"I had to unlearn a lot of things that I had learned going to school. I used to be very scared of silence because I felt it was my responsibility to keep people occupied," he adds.
Wow, that's deep!
So just avoid bringing any of this up and we're sure the two of you will get along fine!
