Anyone who's totally Cole Sprouse OBSESSED would know that boy sure knows how to take a damn good photo. He's even snapped his on-screen (and mebes off-screen) GF Lili Reinhart! But since Cole recently revealed what actually led him to his hobby, all we've wanted to do is scoop him up in our arms and give him a huge hug.

Cole featured on a recent episode of YouTuber Duan Mackenzie photography channel, during which he opened up about his battle with depression, and how he found photography as a remedy.

"I was sad and in a dark place, and I turned to a hobby to sort of take me out of that. And I found photography," Cole told Duan. "I've been doing photography for a while, but I had really used it as an outlet as a way to create and feel better, and it took off."

But this isn't the first time that Cole has opened up about his mental health struggles.

Early last year, Cole posted the above image to Instagram explaining how depression drove him to step behind the camera. "It was depression that led me to the camera," said Cole in his caption. "It heals you know, a hobby. There's no bandaid like a hobby. I've been destructive, I know that now."
