Sarah broke up with her long term boyfriend Matt Prokop, who she lived with since she was 19. After their split, he threatened her with texts and voice mails. In October, E! News reported that Hyland was granted a restraining order against Prokop. He now must stay 100 yards away from her and her home. He also cannot go near her workplace.

She reported that during one altercation, he pinned her against a car, choked her and repeatedly called her a “c**t.” As a result she suffered throat injuries.

In the interview with Meredith Vieria, shown below, when asked how is managing since the ordeal, she said, “People have to go through things in order to become the person they are today, and that’s that.”

Sherwood appeared in the above music video for Taylor Swift’s “Style,” where he played her love interest. Swift herself hand-selected the actor for the role, and since her lyrics are “You got that James Dean day dream look in your eye,” she must have thought he resembled the iconic actor.

In an interview with Just Jared, Sherwood gushed about the songtress, who he met for the first time with Hyland:

She’s beautiful, talented, hardworking, and she’s very genuine. It’s a terrible thing, I was actually very surprised. I had read all these nightmare stories, and when I met her I was very pleasantly surprised that she seemed like one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. As for having a thing for Taylor? That’s for me to know and for you to wonder about.

After this meeting, he must have made an impression on T-Swift because she texted him about being in a music video. “I was really, really flattered that she would even think of me and consider me for it. I’d met the director once or twice before, Kyle Newman. It was all very exciting, even before I knew what I was doing exactly,” he told the Huffington Post.

Hyland has also been known to rave about her bestie and told the Huffington Post about her 1989 album, saying “I’m so proud of her for doing this and taking a huge risk because people don’t like change.”

The actress even spent Swift’s birthday with her as apparent by this Instagram picture of the festivities.
