Got a long list of ex-lovers…at least in her music videos.
Taylor Swift‘s seventh album Lover has already gifted us with four music videos, continuing the superstar’s long tradition of delivering four-minute stories about love and heartbreak inspired by her relationships over the years.
Since her very first music video back in 2007, Taylor has been actively involved in every step of the process, including casting her onscreen love interests. And sometimes, she just happened to be a fan of the guy she was casting, like when she recruited Laguna Beach star Stephen Colletti after watching the MTV reality hit. Plus, she proved herself to be a One Tree Hill fan by picking two if its stars to play her fictional paramours.
Taylor clearly has an eye for talent as she’s hand-picked plenty of unknown actors who have gone on to find success after starring opposite “The Archer” singer, including Scott Eastwood and Dominic Sherwood.
The most recent love interest to join the elite club is Christian Owen, who starred opposite Taylor in the Lover video, released the same day as the album, and it turns out he actually has a long history with the 29-year-old.
“Words cannot express how grateful I am for this woman @taylorswift giving me a chance to express my talent in such a different way!” Owens wrote on Instagram of starring opposite Taylor. “Time and time again you show how caring and giving you are.”
But who are the other men that have filled in to play some of the inspo behind Taylor’s biggest hits, like Harry Styles, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer and her first serious crush Drew Hardwick from her high school days?
And what are they all up to now? Find out…
