Just so it is clear. Scott Eastwood was advised by his agents not to be Taylor Swift’s boyfriend in her music video “Wildest Dreams”.
Taylor Swift is known for being in and out of many relationships and destroying her male counterpart’s careers at the same time. Whether or not it was intentional is questionable, but there definitely is a pattern. It is no wonder that Scott, who plays Taylor's love interest in the hit music video, was asked to refrain from becoming involved.
Scott, who is 30 years old, was asked “why would you want to be Taylor’s boy toy?” and Scott was so excited he replied, “Why the hell not?”
He ultimately accepted the role, and the video was indeed a wild success - as Taylor wanted it to be. Scott plays an aloof actor and a movie star; Taylor is his co-star and falls for him. The video received more than 4 million views and it now seems Scott did make the right decision.
A soon as the shooting of the video was wrapped up, Scott went on social media to declare how right his decision was to go ahead with the shoot in the first place. He said that he had had an amazing time working on the video with Taylor. He posted on Instagram saying “Not only is she a rock star. But someone I am proud to call a friend. She is a great person and those are hard to find in your life. When you do…. Hold tight”
Scott’s career as a model quickly soared after the video was launched. The actor is now seen in the latest movie Suicide Squad. Eastwood is also part of the next instalment of the popular franchise movie Fast and the Furious 8.
