We did, too…so we asked him! Check out what the 24-year-old actor had to share about the romantic holiday:
On his plans: “Well, I’m single right now. I don’t have a girlfriend at the moment. It’s actually my first single Valentine’s Day since I was 16. I think I’m either going to find a date or my buddy Mike might just come over and we’ll watch Dharma & Greg re-runs. I’m hoping it’s the first option because I’ve seen every Dharma & Greg episode, so I’m all caught up. I much rather go on a date.”
On his V-Day playlist: “A lot of Kid Rock, Led Zepplin…stuff like that. Kidding! A lot of Justin Timberlake, he’s had some good love songs over the years; T. Swift. I’m in love with her, so anything she sings, even if it’s not a romantic song, I consider it a romantic song. Because I’m hopelessly in love with her. Just all T. Swift.”
On how he channeled his inner leading man for All She Wishes: “It was interesting because I’ve never played a leading man role like this before. I’ve been the lead in a movie, but this was a leading man role and I was just coming off doing Mostly Ghostly 2 and also Austin & Ally and couple of guest spots, and we had just done a few new Coppertop Show stuff. I’m used to doing really big comedy. With this, they still wanted to add a lot of comedy, but they wanted it a bit more charming and more grounded. I actually watched a ton of romantic comedy movies to see what moves those guys have done. Like Hugh Grant and Brad Pitt. Not saying that I’m ever going to be in the stratosphere of those guys in terms of leading men, but those guys do seem to be the pros of having girls swoon over them. I watched a ton of romantic comedies like Notting Hill, which is now my all time favorite movie. Love, Actually, How To Lose A Guy in Ten Days, stuff like that.”
On his romantic side: I’m a hopeful and hopeless romantic. I really do believe in true love and love at first sight. I love romantic gestures as well. There was this one time I was trying to get a girl to go on a date with me and she wasn’t that interested in me. She kind of was but she was also into another guy and I wanted to win her over. So I ended up buying 300 of her favorite flowers and I spread them all over this park and had her friend drop her off. This was a total surprise to her and it was actually our first real date. I love the big stuff, but I also love the small gestures too. Like when a girl leaves a note for you. I travel a lot and if I’m on a trip and girl leaves a note in my backpack, that’s very cute. I love that kind of stuff.
WHAT’S ON YOUR VALENTINE’S DAY PLAYLIST?
