27 November,2014:Â Taylor Swiftâ€™s slowly growing IMDB page is kind of like that one Natasha Bedingfield song â€” i.e., the rest is still unwritten. One film role she wonâ€™t add to that list any time soon, however, is that of Joni Mitchell, one of Swiftâ€™s favorite musicians of all time.
Back in 2012, the â€œBlank Spaceâ€ singer was linked to a rumored film adaptation â€œGirls Like Us,â€ author Sheila Wellerâ€™s biography of Carole King, Joni Mitchell and Carly Simon. But according to a recent interview with The Sunday Times, Mitchell herself was not on board with either Swiftâ€™s casting or the project as a whole.
â€œI squelched that!â€ the folk-rock icon told the paper. â€œI said to the producer, â€˜All youâ€™ve got is a girl with high cheekbones.â€™ Itâ€™s just a lot of gossip, you donâ€™t have the great scenes.â€
Well, that sucks. I guess we canâ€™t all pull a Lindsay Lohan and play our celebrity faves on-screen. (â€œLiz & Dickâ€ 4 evahhhh.)
Taylorâ€™s always been a super-vocal fan of Joniâ€™s, even citing Blue as her â€œfavorite album of all timeâ€ in a 2013 interview with Rhapsody. â€œI think this album is my favorite because it explores somebodyâ€™s soul so deeply,â€ she explained.
