Cole and Dylan Sprouse didn’t want to stop playing video games to meet Matt Damon

“I don't know if Dylan and I even turned away from our computers to say hi,” Cole Sprouse recalled.

Cole Sprouse is reflecting on a hilarious interaction — or lack thereof — that he had with Matt Damon as a teenager.

On SiriusXM’s Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, the Riverdale actor revealed that he and his brother Dylan Sprouse had the opportunity to meet the Bourne Identity star on the set of their Disney Channel show The Suite Life of Zack & Cody — but they completely brushed him off.

“So my brother and I were in set school at the time and we were really into World of Warcraft,” Sprouse explained. “One of the PAs comes knocking on the set school door and goes, ‘Oh, you guys, you won't believe it. Matt Damon is going to be here today. His kids love the show, so he's gonna be here in like 30 minutes,’ and I remember Dylan and I turning to each other and just going, ‘Ugh. I can't believe we have to get off of World of Warcraft right now.’ We must have been 15.”

“Matt Damon knocks on the door and every crew member is behind him in the hall just looking and amazed at Matt Damon,” Sprouse recalled. “And I don't know if Dylan and I even turned away from our computers to say hi. This was how ridiculous we were as children. I think he came in and was like, ‘Hey guys. Wow, so nice to meet you,’ and we were like, ‘Yeah, yeah. Hey man. Hey, how you doing?’ and just went right back to the game.”

Sprouse isn’t embarrassed by the anecdote because he thinks it speaks to his childhood self maintaining a sense of normality despite his fame. “I look back on that story now, and I'm actually like, I love it because it, you know, the whole ethos of whatever that was around us didn't really affect us,” he said. “We were just being kids and playing video games.”

However, he does admit that he probably owes Damon an apology for seeming dismissive at the time. “I'm sure if I ever meet Matt Damon again, I'm just gonna say ‘I'm sorry’ and it'll be all good,” Sprouse conceded.
