Taylor Swift - Taylor Swift: 'I Hope My Fans Find Happy Moments Thanks To New Film'

Taylor Swift jumped at the chance to play a pivotal role in new movie The Giver because it was an opportunity to show fans who reach out to her in times of need and sadness they should cherish moments of happiness.

Swift was a last-minute addition to the cast of the film, and flew to South Africa to shoot her scenes opposite Jeff Bridges.

The movie veteran has already given the Love Story singer high praise for her acting skills, and Swift tells Wenn it was a joy to be on the set of such an important project.

She says, "It was unbelievable to even think I would have the opportunity to work with Jeff. It's just an unbelievable concept that I would get to do this. It's sort of this dream scenario where I get to have a very small role that has a pivotal part of the story but isn't jumping into too deep water.

"It was a story that stuck with me through my childhood and the book is by an author that I respect. It celebrates all the things that I hold really dear and the things that are most important are history, music, art, intellect and our memories. That really had a great deal to do with why I had to be a part of this.

"So many of my fans write to me on Instagram and Twitter saying that they're having such a tough time with life because they can't imagine that we can experience such great pain, such intense loss, such insecurity. And the thing that I wish I could tell them over and over again is that we live for these fleeting moments of happiness. Happiness is not a constant; it's something we only experience once in a while but it's worth it. And I that's what in particular drew me to this movie."
