Scott Eastwood revealed his part in Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” video was almost just a dream.
The Suicide Squad actor, who plays Swift’s love interest in desert-set love story, told People that his agents thought it was a bad idea.
“None of my agents wanted me to do it, actually,” said Eastwood in the interview. “They said, ‘Oh, we don’t want you to do that! Why would you be Taylor Swift’s boy toy?’ and I said, ‘Why the hell not?’”
Despite his agents’ disapproval, Eastwood went through with the part. The music video now has over 475 million views; “Wildest Dreams” peaked at No. 5 on the Hot 100.
