Taylor Swift (32) could have had a small role in the 2009 film ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’, were it not for the fact that director Chris Weitz (52) deleted the so-called cameo. He did that because he was afraid that Taylor, who had just broken through as a singer, would demand too much attention.
“I’m kicking myself for that now, because then I could have chilled with Taylor Swift”
According to Chris, Taylor was a “huge” fan of the Twilight series and wanted to star in the film, the director reveals in the podcast The Twilight Effect. The two had the same agent, so a deal seemed quickly made. The singer wanted to play everyone in the film, even if it was just “someone in the cafe or restaurant.” She just really wanted to be in this movie,” Chris recalls.
However, the director declined their joint agent’s offer. He felt that Taylor was too big a star at the time and that – if she came into the picture – she would “get the attention of all the other actors and the story right away.” “Nobody is going to remember anything anymore. I’m kicking myself for that now because I could have chilled with Taylor Swift. But sometimes you make decisions that you think are best for the movie.”
