Taylor Swift Auditioned for 'Les Miserables' Movie Before Getting 'Cats'

Did you know that the upcoming Cats movie is directed by the same guy who directed the Les Miserables movies?

Taylor Swift actually auditioned to play the role of Eponine in the previous movie and when casting started for the Cats movie, she was offered her role without even doing an audition!

“I had actually done screen tests for Les Miz and had met (Hooper) through that process, like 2012,” Taylor said in a new interview with Variety. “I didn’t get it, but it was such an amazing experience just doing the screen test. And I was obviously like, ‘I’m not going to get this,’ because the other girl was amazing and was on the West End — Samantha Barks; she’s incredible and she fully killed the role and was amazing. … I just had a good time doing the screen tests.”

Taylor didn’t have to audition this time around though. She said, “When I was approached this time, it was a straight-up offer.”
