Jeff Bridges - Jeff Bridges: 'I Really Hope Taylor Swift Keeps Acting, She's Terrific'

Movie veteran Jeff Bridges has given Taylor Swift's acting a huge thumbs up after working with her on the set of his new film The Giver.

The Love Story singer was drafted in to play Bridges' piano-playing daughter at the last minute and had to jet out to Capetown, South Africa to film her scenes.

But she didn't let jet-lag ruin the experience of her latest movie, turning Oscar winner Bridges into a big fan.

He tells Wenn, "Her first day of work was right on the heels of arriving in Capetown. She was exhausted but she was such a pro and so up for being involved and playing and took right to the acting. I hope she continues the acting. She's very talented, as well as being a great songwriter and performer.

"I believe she was Harvey Weinstein's idea. He said, 'Well, you're being taught piano here', and somebody who would be great for that part is Taylor. She came into his mind and I'm so glad she stepped on board. She had read the book and was a big fan. She's terrific."
