When discussing her emotionless character in 'The Giver', Swift says she will not be popular if she writes emotionless songs.
Taylor Swift thinks emotion is very important for her career. The singer made the revelation when she was sitting down for an interview with Entertainment Tonight and discussing her role as an emotionless girl in the upcoming movie "The Giver".
"To me emotion is such an important part of my life, and now I guess my job," the "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" hitmaker said and added that she wouldn't be popular if she didn't sing about love and loss.
"People wouldn't listen to my songs if they weren't heart broken or deeply affected and hurt and jilted and sad and bitter and all those wonderful things that I write songs about," she explained.
In "The Giver", Swift will play the daughter of Jeff Bridges' character. "Playing Jeff Bridges' daughter is sort of outlandish and something out of a day dream," she said of working with the actor. "He could not be more kind and friendly."
"[Co-star Brenton Thwaites] and I would just go to Jeff's room to play guitar with him," she added. "It really felt like there is that kind of father figure role."
