The notoriously private life of Taylor Swift’s brother.

“I didn’t have a lot of friends. I would go to the movies, and Daniel Craig was my friend, and Christian Bale was my friend, and Clive Owen was my friend, and Viggo Mortensen was my friend,” he told Vanity Fair.

But despite his love for all things acting, it took Austin a while to realise that was something he was interested in pursuing professionally.

“[Taylor] found singing, and I knew from very early on that that was her direction,” he shared in the Vanity Fair interview. “She was never going to quit; that was her thing, that was her life… and I was always a little bit, you know, doing this, doing that.”

In 2015, Austin graduated from the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, where he received a bachelor’s degree in film studies. Since then he has dabbled in a number of acting roles and has even added some producing credits to his CV.
