Carly Rae Jepsen on Working with Tom Hanks for New Music Video: ‘I’m a Lucky Woman!’
Carly Rae Jepsen delighted her fans with quite the fun surprise earlier this year when she released the video for her song “I Really Like You,” starring legendary actor Tom Hanks.
On Monday, Jepsen sat down for an interview with HuffPost Live and dished on how it all went down.
“I’m a lucky woman!” she explained. “I did have in mind for a while that I wanted to have a surprising male actor sing the song instead of me. I thought it would offset the sweetness with a bit of surprise. … [Hanks and manager Scooter Braun] were at dinner together and were just kind of talking about what was going on in their careers and lives, and my name came up, and this concept came up, and by the end of dinner, somehow [Hanks] had been convinced.”
