You read that right: Taylor Swift was thissssss close to playing the role of Eponine in that movie version of Les Miserables. 

Eddie Redmayne, doing the rounds for Fantastic Beasts, shared that he and Tay-Tay auditioned together for the live-sung film…and that’s all. 

Asking if rumours that the pair dated (and that perhaps she wrote a break up anthem about the Brit), Redmayne was very clear:

“I can put those rumours to rest. Taylor Swift and I never dated. She was amazing in the audition, we got to sing together, and that was a big moment for me. But no, we never went out.”
