ET's Katie Krause caught up with the Riverdale star at Variety's Power of Young Hollywood at The H Club Los Angeles on Tuesday, where he touched on the recent rumors that he and girlfriend Lili Reinhart had broken up.
When asked how annoyed he was of the reports, Sprouse jokingly replied, "Incredibly," before adding, "No, I don't care. That's the nature of our industry."
"I think you have to poke fun of it a little bit," he added. "It's kind of something you sign up for, but as long as can keep it light and fun, it's all good."
"I'm not a poet. I do not write. I'll figure out something beautiful," he told ET.
Meanwhile, Sprouse was being recognized at the Variety event as part of their Power of Young Hollywood list.
"It's incredibly validating. I think it's dangerously validating," he said about being part of the list. "It's nice. It was a good little shoot. I'm honored to be on the same cover as Stephan [James]."
