Don't expect an apology from Dylan Sprouse anytime soon. The former Disney star's nude pics were leaked on the Internet today, but the 21-year-old doesn't regret taking them.

"The reason I’m making light of the situation is because I don’t think what I did was wrong," he writes on his personal tumblr page. "To be blunt, I was proud of my progress in the gym, thought I looked hot, and wanted to share it. There is an odd taboo with the human form (especially in the USA) and I don’t particularly think its a good thing to teach people that you should 'hide yourself' as something incredibly sacred. Blah blah blah, that’s a medieval notion."

The Suite Life of Zack and Cody star did admit that he made one crucial mistake, saying, "Secondly, the real problem here was not me sending my pictures to someone, but rather, sending them to the WRONG someone. The real travesty is a misplaced trust, and while I am certainly to blame for it, it is a shame that my private life was somehow forcibly dragged into the public’s perception of me."

Sprouse went on to note that he felt he'd handled the situation well, writing, "I’ll look this incident in the eye like a man. I did it, but I’d be damned if I didn’t own that shit like Beyonce would want me to."

The identical twin, whose brother Cole Sprouse made light of the situation on Twitter saying "Cold in that bathroom huh?", declared he was making T-shirts with an uncensored picture of the nude photo on the front. He also had one important note to his mass of new social media followers.

"Please stop sending me nudes you will not get any in return despite popular evidence," he joked.
