Following the huge success of “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax,” where she voiced one of the characters, Taylor Swift is mapping out her movie career. Taylor told us that she had been reading scripts in recent years and looking out for roles that she could be passionate about and which could be worth taking a break (from her hectic music career schedule) for.
Below are excerpts from our recent interview with the singer-songwriter:
What kind of movies would you like to do?
I’ve been reading scripts for about five years— just kind of under the radar, asking my agents to please send me everything that might be good. In my free time I just read and read. When I look at acting careers that I really admire, I see that it’s been a precise decision-making process for these people. They make decisions based on what they love and they do only the things that they are passionate about. They play only characters that they can’t stop thinking about.
If I got a script that I thought was OK and a character that I kind of liked and could pull off but wasn’t obsessed with, that would be unfair to someone else who might be obsessed with that character. So if I do a movie, you will know I cannot think of anything other than that character. I’m such a fan of great writing and great storytelling. I’m looking for great, powerful writing behind whatever cast is surrounding it, whatever director is steering it—that would all be peripheral to the fact that the story is brilliant and has to be told.
Who among today’s actors do you look up to?
Jennifer Lawrence is my favorite, and Emma Stone is one of my best friends. We’ve been best friends since we were 17.
Daniel Day-Lewis is so impressive, but I also love how, when Will Smith does something, everyone stands at attention. He’s made such brilliant decisions. He’s so charismatic.
