Carly Rae Jepsen Says Tom Hanks' Video Cameo Was a 'Miracle'

Carly Rae Jepsen Says Tom Hanks' Video Cameo Was a 'Miracle'

Carly Rae Jepsen waves to fans as she stops the NRJ Radio Studios on Monday afternoon (June 1) in Paris, France.

The 29-year-old singer recently opened up about how she got Tom Hanks in her “I Really Like You” music video.

“I don’t know, it was a miracle,” Carly said. “We [manager Scooter Braun] just ended up looking through all these different treatments for the video and I wasn’t finding anything that I loved. I felt that the song is so sweet that having a really sweet video on top of it would be gag-worthy. I wanted it to be something funny.”

Carly continued, “We came up with the idea of having a really unexpected lead male character sing the song instead of me, in a very dry and serious kind of way. Scooter had just had dinner with Tom Hanks telling him how I had a list of people that I had been politely stalking and Tom was just like ‘You should have asked me.’”

Carly Rae Jepsen Wants To Shine Attention On Her Other Songs From 'Emotion'

Carly Rae Jepsen Wants To Shine Attention On Her Other Songs From 'Emotion'

Carly Rae Jepsen heads out of the Sirius XM radio studios with a smile on her face in New York City on Tuesday afternoon (May 19).

The 29-year-old singer chatted up her upcoming album, Emotion.

“I’m trying to think of the success of this album as me feeling confident about my choices – if they do well, then great. If they get shat on, well, as long as I’ve felt good about them, then that’s the success for me,” she recently shared with The Guardian.

Carly Rae added, “Even with ‘I Really Like You’ I was like, ‘I hope it works but I hope it doesn’t work too well because I want to move on.’ I really want to learn from that and shine attention on to these other songs.”

Carly Rae Jepsen Reflects on 'Kiss' Album: 'I'm Proud Of The Album'

Carly Rae Jepsen rocks a cool Romantics leather jacket ahead of her acoustic performance at the Q102 studios on Friday afternoon (May 15) in Bala Cynwyd, Penn.

The 29-year-old singer recently chatted with The Guardian about her new album, Emotion, and previous one, Kiss.

“I look back and I’m proud of the album but clearly nothing did as well as that song ["Call Me Maybe"] and it was a challenge to get attention on the rest of the B-side tracks,” she shared. “But it was a happy challenge and a problem you can go at two ways; you can either be really pissed off or you can be grateful that you had some attention at all. I did the latter.”

Carly Rae added, “I saw it as an amazing gift that has allowed me to take my time with this new record and make sure that I have a really strong body of work and not just one song.”
