Country Throwback: Scott Eastwood Says He Was ‘Warned’ Against Appearing in 2015 Taylor Swift Video

by Halle Ames

Admit it, you had major heart eyes for Clint Eastwood‘s gorgeous son Scott Eastwood in Taylor Swift‘s 2015 music video “Wildest Dreams,” however the actor spills that he was warned against taking the role. 

According to Eastwood, he was advised numerous times about the role. 

“None of my agents wanted me to do it,” Eastwood said. “They said, ‘Oh, we don’t want you to do that! Why would you be Taylor Swift’s boy toy? ‘”

How did the now 34-year-old heartthrob respond to the warning? He obviously ignored them. 

“And I said, ‘Why the hell not?'” Eastwood confessed. “[It was a] fantastic experience.” 

In the video, Eastwood and Swift are actors (how fitting) on a movie set for a safari-themed film. The two begin to catch feelings for one another. However, Swift, who is single, falls hard, while Eastwood has a wife back home. After filming onset in the wild savanna, the two return to their glamorous city lives and see each other again at the movie’s premiere. The memories become too much for Swift, who leaves during the movie’s debut. As she drives away in a limo, Eastwood chases after her but is too late. 

It is a real whirlwind of emotions that play out in just a few short minutes.
