Brenda Song Shares How She Bonds With Other Former Child Stars Including Boyfriend Macaulay Culkin (Exclusive)

The couple has been together for nearly two years.

Brenda Song is opening up about how she bonded with Changeland co-stars Macaulay Culkin, Breckin Meyer and Seth Green over being child stars. 

"Child actors, we don't even get to talk about it, you just look each other in the eye and you nod and we know," the 31-year-old actress told ET's Katie Krause at Disney Channel's fan fest at California Adventure Park on Saturday. 

Song is largely known for her work on The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and other Disney Channel projects, while Culkin, her beau of nearly two years, starred in Home Alone and My Girl, among others.

Though Song is still recognized as London Tipton on Suite Life -- something she called "weird," "shocking," and "sweet" -- she's unsure if she'll ever return to that particular character.

"I was a part of Suite Life, so I can't say anything," she said of a potential reboot of the series, before revealing what show she'd like to see get the revival treatment. "What I would really love is a Lizzie McGuire reboot. That's my favorite show. That would make my life because that's the show I grew up watching."

The self-proclaimed Disney fan may not return to the Tipton Hotel, but she isn't done with the network! Song is set to star in Amphibia, an animated series about a 13-year-old girl who's magically sent to a world of amphibians.

"It really does feel good to be back. Especially unveiling such an amazing show that's so close to my heart. It feels really special," she gushed of the series, which is set to premiere later this year. "...It's so fun to a play a 13-year-old. It's literally my voice. I told them, 'I'm a one-trick pony, this is all you get' and for some reason they were OK with that. So it's great. I get to go to work in my pajamas and have a good time."

Following her child star years and her transition back to playing a teen once again, Song sweetly offered up some great advice for her younger self.

"I wish I could tell... my 13-year-old self, 'It's gonna be OK. Just remember you don't have to listen to anyone else. Go with your gut instinct. Because at the end of the day, your opinion is the only one that matters,'" she said.
