Matt doesn’t just PLAY a cartoon character on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, he also LOVES cartoon characters — specifically, Aladdin’s Princess Jasmine!

90210 star Matt Lanter‘s favorite Disney moving growing up was Aladdin — but not just because he’s a sucker for toe-tapping musical numbers. Matt admits he had the hots the movie’s leading lady, Princess Jasmine! “Jasmine is my cartoon crush,” Matt, 27, told HollywoodLife.com exclusively Oct. 7 at his Hand Print Ceremony at NYC’s Planet Hollywood Times Square. “Those sheer little top things she had on … yeah, basically what I’m saying is Jasmine is my crush!”

Aladdin is just a great story,” Matt continued. “Aladdin was just a fun character who kind of came up with nothing and ended up with the with the princess.”

And Matt’s love of Disney movies continues, as he’s providing the voice of Sled in Tinker Bell and the Mysterious Winter Woods, scheduled to be released in 2011.

“The best part about voiceover work in general is that it’s a whole different side of the industry and all the voiceover actors are so cool and down to earth,” Matt told us. “You don’t have to put on a face. You just be real with them. … It’s so cool because I get to be creative in two completely separate outlets, One being on camera, and one as a different world where you have to use your voice and have to express what the character is feeling.”
