Taylor Swift had fans going crazy with her new "Blank Space" music video on Monday.
And in the video, the "1989" superstar went a little (OK, a lot!) crazy herself over her music video beau, played by handsome model Sean O'Pry.
As it turns out, Sean almost drove a different legion of fans crazy –"Fifty Shades" fanatics!
"I read for it," Sean revealed, when asked if he was one of the many models who auditioned for the role of Christian Grey in the upcoming film adaptation of E L James' racy novel "Fifty Shades of Grey."
Clearly boasting the physical appearance to fill Christian Grey's designer duds, where did it go wrong?
"I think it was more the acting ability at the time," Sean admitted with a smile. "Congrats to Jamie [Dornan] though. I mean, Jamie's so nice… it was cool to read [for] it."
The red room of pain may not have been in his future at the time, but little did he know he'd soon be on the receiving end of some other relationship agony at the hands of Taylor.
As for those acting chops, Sean said he's currently putting a lot of hard work into his craft.
"For the last year, I've been doing serious studies, so it's quite cool," he explained. "Right now, I'm just studying. Not reading anything or going out on anything – I'm just trying to get better."
And of course, the big question on everyone's mind – did Sean get to meet Taylor's cat Olivia Benson?!?
"I did not. Everyone keeps asking me, 'Did I meet the cat?' Sean laughed. "I was shooting another scene at the time she was shooting with Olivia Benson.
"So Taylor – I want to meet Olivia Benson! And she can meet [my dog] Mia. We can go on like a cat-dog playdate," Sean suggested. "That could be cool."
