A BuzzFeed editor who happens to know Scott’s cover co-star (who wishes to remain anonymous) spoke to her and she gave us these exclusive details about the cover shoot.
“Scott was so shy and we literally stood inches apart for hours. I remember they put me on two shoe boxes to reach him — we could’ve made out. He always came alone and acted like the silent mysterious type. He would wear really baggy clothes and had no sense of real style.”
“It seemed he was really doing this for the money because he came alone with a backpack kind of like a kid coming from school pretending to go to play basketball but secretly modeling for extra money. This was in 2001 so I was 10 or 11 at the time. He really just came in, got makeup done, stood in front of the camera and left pretty silently too. Nothing at all like the Scott we know now 12 years later.”
