Weitz revealed in a new interview on the Twilight Effect podcast that Swift turned down an opportunity to be an extra in 2009’s New Moon. In the episode, Weitz said, “Taylor Swift would like to appear in this movie, but not because of you, but because she’s a Twi-hard,” as The Independent reports.
Weitz felt Swift’s presence in the film would be distracting despite Swift’s desire only to appear as “someone at the cafeteria.” When Taylor Swift walks on the screen, for about five minutes, nobody will be able to process anything,” he said in the podcast. I kick myself too, since I was like, “Wow, I could have been hanging out with Taylor Swift.”
Weitz added that, despite feeling some regret, the decision was necessary for the movie. ’ Sometimes you make decisions thinking they are for the benefit of the film,’ he said. Although Swift did not appear in Twilight: New Moon, she will appear in Amsterdam, directed by David O. Russell.
Swift’s ‘All Too Well’ short film was recently nominated for an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short. Last November, Swift directed the short film, which stars Sadie Sink from Stranger Things and Dylan O’Brien from Maze Runner.
