In true “Eras” tour fashion, let’s take a trip down memory lane and remember some of Taylor Swift’s lesser known acting roles, starting with the one she totally missed out on. Director of “Twilight: New Moon,” Chris Weitz, admitted that it was his decision to opt out of featuring the pop star in the popular vampire romance series’ sophomore movie.
In a podcast interview, he shared that Taylor Swift expressed interest in being involved in the movie in any way, not even asking for a speaking role. According to Weitz, she was a “Twi-Hard” who was being considered as “someone at the cafeteria or the diner or whatever … she just wants to be in this movie” (via People). Not to mention, Swift was dating one of the movie’s stars, Taylor Lautner, at the time. Ultimately, the director decided that showcasing the singer in any way would be too distracting for viewers. He has since expressed regret, considering how cool it would have been to hang out with the one and only Taylor Swift.
Fortunately for Taylor, she has since found her way to the silver screen multiple times, making appearances in large blockbusters like “The Giver” back in 2014. According to The Wrap, she has also lent her voice to roles in “The Lorax” and the infamous dancing feline on two legs, Bombalurina, in the musical “Cats.” Most recently, Swift was featured in director David O. Russell’s movie “Amsterdam.”
