Dylan O’Brien Would ‘Love’ to Attend VMAs With Taylor Swift

It’s nice to have a friend! Taylor SwiftJust five nominations for the 2022 MTV Video Music Award for her work on All Too Well: The Film Short — wasted no time before telling its stars Dylan O’Brien and Sadie SinkThe exciting news.

“She sent us the news first thing in the morning,” O’Brien, 30, told Entertainment TonightInterview published Thursday, July 28. “She’s genuinely just someone who’s so involved and just proud of her work and is so grateful for any accomplishment or recognition for something that she just poured herself into. Talk about a special human.”

The Not okay star revealed he and Sink, 19, “have a little group chat” with the pop superstar, 32, who both directed the music video and costarred alongside them in it.

O’Brien went on to praise Swift for her work as an artist, adding that he would be thrilled to attend the award ceremony alongside her if asked. “I would love to go to the VMAs. It’s been a while,” he said.

If the Teen WolfSwift would be proud to have an alum as a director again. The answer is a resounding “Yes!”

“Yeah, of course. She would make a great director. If it’s something that her heart’s in, Taylor can do whatever she wants,” he gushed about working with the “Shake it Off” singer. “She could easily direct a feature and it’d be something I’d sign up for, for sure.”

The following is the current version: Maze RunnerStar is focused on his movie Not okay — a millennial satire about a desperate and lonely wannabe writer named Danni Sanders (Zoey Deutch) who fakes a trip to Paris while hiding out in her Brooklyn apartment before a terrorist attack catapults her into becoming a social media celebrity. O’Brien, for his part, plays Colin — a clout-chasing micro-influencer that Deutch sets her sights on.

O’Brien knew he wanted the outlandish role from the moment he read the script. “From the first conversation with [director] Quinn early on, I was just like, ‘I want to go full-on, just like full tats, bleach the hair,” the New York Native told Entertainment WeeklyThursday “I loved it. I love doing it,” he said. “It was so much fun. It was so much fun. When it was over, it all happened so fast I wish I could go back and do it better.”

One thing O’Brien won’t be going back to is his old Teen Wolf stomping grounds. In March, the actor revealed that he decided to decline the opportunity to return home to Beacon Falls as Stiles Stilinski, a fan favorite, for the MTV revival film.

“The show couldn’t be more dear to me. It was the first thing I ever did I and so many people there are extremely dear to me,” O’Brien told VarietyMarch “It was something I was trying to make work, but it all happened very fast.”

While the Amazing Stories alum noted that “a lot” of thought went into making the difficult decision, he ultimately decided it was best to move one. “I just decided it was left in a really good place for me and I still want to leave it there,” he explained.
