Welcome to 50 Days of Scott Eastwood, a Just PMSing original series, where we dive deep into the man, the myth, the legend, Clint Eastwood’s son, Scott. Photo by Gage Skidmore.
There are a lot of things to like about Scott Eastwood. He is handsome. He’s in movies. He has a dog. And he’s a Swiftie.
Without a doubt, the best film Eastwood has ever starred in is Taylor Swift’s music video for “Wildest Dreams,” where he plays her movie co-star and offscreen love interest who is actually married in real life (It’s kind of complicated). It’s amazing. Unmatched. Nothing like it.
Even though it’s amazing, his agents and managers initially warned against him starring in the music video.
“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,'” Eastwood said in an interview.
The video was released in August 2015, but months before that, Eastwood was asked if Swift was “cool or uncool” in an interview and he said “cool.” Wow, a true Swiftie.
After the release of the music video, Eastwood wrote on Instagram that Swift was a “rockstar” and a “friend.”
“She is a great person and those are hard to find in your life,” he wrote. “When you do…. Hold tight.”
