The 'Speak Now' songstress goes casual when attending the screening of HBO's 'Ethel', joining some members of the Kennedys at the January 20 event.
Taylor Swift has lent her charm to support the premiere of HBO's "Ethel" during the Sundance Film Festival on Friday, January 20. The 22-year-old country music singer's appearance drew the attention from crowd who expected to get a glimpse of her at the event taking place in Park City, Utah.
Keeping herself warm in a cream-colored coat and a pair of boots, Swift embraced Ethel Kennedy, who is the subject in the documentary, upon her arrival. Sundance Institute founder Robert Redford also took time to attend the event.
During the special screening, a total of 23 members of the Kennedy clan were present to show support. Among those spotted hitting the black carpet were Rory Kennedy, who directed the documentary about her mother, and Robert Kennedy Jr.
Swift has previously admitted that she was starstruck when meeting the wife of the late Robert Kennedy. "The only time in my life I have ever been starstruck was meeting Caroline and Ethel Kennedy," she said in an interview with Vogue magazine.
"I got to spend the afternoon with Ethel a couple of weeks ago. She is one of my favorites, because you look back at the pictures of her and Bobby, and they always look like they are having the most fun out of everybody," she went on sharing. "You know, 11 kids, all these exotic animals on their property. I've read a lot about them."
