Taylor Swift asked to star in 'Twilight' saga but was denied by 'New Moon' director.

It was revealed on an episode of 'The Twilight Effect' podcast with Ashley Greene and Melanie Howe that 'New Moon' director Chris Weitz denied Taylor Swift of a cameo in the film. According to Weitz, Swift wanted any role in the film and would have played someone sitting in a cafeteria if it meant she could be in the film. 

Weitz said: “Taylor Swift was a huge Twi-hard, and Taylor Swift and I had the same agent at the time and he said, ‘Taylor would like to be in this movie – not because of you, but she’s a Twi-hard. The hardest thing for me was to be like, the moment that Taylor Swift walks onto the screen, for about five minutes, nobody is going to be able to process anything. I kick myself for it too, because – I was like, wow, I could’ve been hanging out with Taylor Swift. She must have been like, ‘Who is this jerk?’ But sometimes you make decisions thinking this is for the best of the film.”
