Taylor Swift Was A Secret ‘Twi-Hard,’ Wanted To Appear On ‘Twilight’

Movies, News

Taylor Swift was a secret Twi-hard who really wanted a role in the popular franchise. This comes amid the rumblings that the singer-songwriter wants to transition into acting. Back in 2009, she really wanted to be part of the film, New Moon. Swift was determined to make it happen.

So, she had her team reach out to the producers. Ironically, around that time, Swift was in a relationship with the film’s star Taylor Lautner. Fans affectionally called them “Taylor Squared.” The two appeared in the star-studded romantic comedy, Valentine’s Day.

Yet, Swift set her sights even higher. She wanted to appear in the ever-popular Twilight movies, which swept the nation.

Taylor Swift wanted to star in the YA film

On a recent episode of Ashley Greene’s The Twilight Effect podcast, Chris Weitz shared that Taylor Swift asked to have a role in the film. She was an avid lover of the books and movies. Swift wanted her way in. That’s when she realized that she shares an agent with Weitz.

“Taylor Swift is a huge Twi-hard,” Weitz admitted on the podcast. “Taylor Swift and I had the same agent at the time and he said, ‘Taylor would like to be in this movie — not because of you, but she’s a Twi-hard. She will be someone at the cafeteria, or the diner or whatever, but she just wants to be in this movie.'”

However, Weitz denied Swift’s request to appear in the film. He admits that he now regrets his decision, but not for the reason you think. Weitz wasn’t thinking that he could’ve had one of the biggest pop stars in his movie. He wanted to be in with her squad. Yet, that wasn’t a sound enough reason to have her in the movie.

“I was like, ‘Wow, I could’ve been hanging out with Taylor Swift or maybe could’ve been friends,'” Weitz continued. “I sort of feel like I sort of cost myself a chance to hang out with Taylor Swift. But sometimes you make decisions thinking, ‘This is the for the best of the film.'”

“Willow” singer transitioning into acting?

Meanwhile, fans wonder if Taylor Swift is transitioning into acting. She’s appeared in The Giver and Cats, the latter of which received harsh criticism. Swift recently worked with director David O’Russell on the new film Amsterdam. This step could lead her in the right direction.

She’s also interested in directing some of her own movies. At the 2022 Tribeca Festival, Taylor Swift talked about the process of making her short film “All Too Well.” Per Variety, she said that she always had imposter syndrome when it came to directing. Swift has directed her own music videos, including “Cardigan,” “The Man,” and “Willow.”
