Taylor Swift Shows Off Acting Skills in ‘The Giver’ and ‘Ew! It’s Natalie’ Clips [VIDEOS]
Taylor, Rosemary, Natalie — whatever name superstar Taylor Swift is going by, we are so here for it!
The 24-year-old is branching out to the big screen (again) for her role as Rosemary alongside Jeff Bridges in the book-to-movie adaptation ‘The Giver.’ If you’ve read the young adult novel, then you already know Rosemary’s story is a bit of a sad one. Don’t worry, that’s not a spoiler! Even the new sneak preview of the singer’s spot in the film gives off a somber air as Bridges explains to protagonist Jonas that Rosemary was a “previous receiver” who “no longer exists.” How ominous!
Watch Taylor play the piano and sing a few notes (of course!) in ‘The Giver’ preview above.
In another video clip so different that it might give you whiplash if you watch immediately after the sneak peek up top, Taylor is aiming for our funny bones in a video announcement of her upcoming appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.’
“Hey Sara, it’s Natalie,” Taylor lisps through a mouthful of braces, referring to Jimmy’s teenage character Sara from his popular skit ‘Ew!’ “Remember me? Our moms were best friends together in college. … My mom said that we’re gonna come visit you and your mom and your dad, and I heard that you have that television show called ‘Ew!’”
She does indeed, and Natalie — er, Taylor will be a guest star on Wednesday, Aug. 13 at 11:35 p.m. EDT. In the meantime, watch Natalie in the video below!
