Wentz appeared as himself on “One Tree Hill” for three episodes in 2005-06; he would date Burton’s character Peyton Sawyer, who was meant to be in high school.

“Poor Pete. Pete really thought he was just coming on the show to play like, a cool dude,” Burton said. “And the next thing you know, it looks like he’s having an affair with a high school girl.

“I don’t think he realized our characters were in high school because we were all in our 20s in real life. And so it wasn’t until even I watched it back that I was like, ‘Oh, there’s a lot of insinuation in here. I thought we were just kissing buddies but this looks bad in the edit.'”

Despite Wentz’s problematic plot line, behind the scenes he was a trooper, according to Burton.

The actress said he was “willing to do his makeup in a bathroom with five girls. He’s really a team player.”
