Taylor Swift: Zac Efron's New Love Interest!

Taylor Swift: Zac Efron's New Love Interest!

Taylor Swift has joined the cast of Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, a CGI-animated adaptation of the book by the same name.

The 21-year-old country star will play the love interest of an idealistic young man (voiced by Zac Efron), while Danny DeVito will voice the title character, THR reports.

Also lending their voices to the film are Betty White, Ed Helms, and Rob Riggle.

This is Tay‘s second foray into movies – last year, she starred in the ensemble comedy Valentine’s Day.

  • Glamourous

    Personally, I think they’d make an attractive real-life couple.

  • Cindy

    She should have worn flats

  • anonymous

    this seems great, zacs getting alot on his plate right now. but personally, i dont think they should date. it doesnt really seem like they would make a good couple, or that they would last.

  • Mailey

    She was really horrid in v-day. She’s not an actress.

  • Disney

    Haha no wonder why he left your adored Vanessa Hudgens. But I think this girl is another one to puke on.

  • e

    The movie is animated, which means that they proably won’t even meet each other because when you do an animated film only one actor at the time staps into the studio, and everyone who has done one always says that they haven’t meet their co-stars until like the promo starts or until the premiere, besides Zac isn ‘t stupid (I think) and would date someone who is known for dating every guy that comes withint two meters from her and wholater goes out and tells the world everything and write songs about how great she is and how mean boys and other girls are.

  • kami

    @13, @15, AHahahahahaa
    dont talk with your self and i feel sorry for yo life ;-)

  • SJC

    Jared why do you do this to me?!?!? I was just going to order Taylor a CT Scan.. Jeez so glad that she isn’t actually dating him. It will be interesting to see how the movie turns out though.

  • Gabby

    So…she’s an actress now?

  • Jake G

    Another GAY “boyfriend” for Taylor Swift?

  • Bell

    I can gurantee as soon as Taylor gets back to the states, we will hear reports from her staff writers at US weekly that she and Chord have met up in LA, Nashville, or the AMA’s in Las Vegas. I can gurantee it. I wish for once Taylor would become strong and independent and prove to the world that it is ok to be single for a while. Dating a boy every three months just proves how shallow she leads her life. IT IS ALL SHE DOES IN LIFE! Grow up Taylor.

  • http://caronighten2.com Sligo lambert ^____^cute

    i loser. very big fat loser.

  • Merlin’s Mum

    @b*tch: Don’t be so damn stupid. Luv Zac, this will be another kids film that I hide at the back at on my own!!HaHa

  • Derrick

    She is not in LOVE with him, i know this becuase I am the ONE love she speaks of in her cds. I am the one who pushed her, .aybe even too hard, to become what she is today. Baby for that I am sorry. Zach has no chance unless he wants to be hurt becuase she is MINE!!

  • Derrick

    sorry for the errors, I have been playin guitar for hours upon hours…no one is perfect

  • WICKED WENCH

    Oh – thank-GOD! I was really worried. Zac can do so much better than Taylor Swift – she’s vapid and talentless, and will write a song about him after the split. On the plus side, the gays LOVE them some Taylor Swift, so that new pairing would please at least one demographic…

  • Wren

    Ouch, they have absolutely no chemistry. He looks like he is holding on to moldy month old food from the back of the refrigerator. She looks nice, but their body language –meh…

  • Tiff

    Ha! I was thinking Taylor must be the Queen Beard for Hollywood’s Leading Men. Very misleading title, Jared :p

  • anh

    OMG…for a second…i thought they are dating by reading the title. Dang thanks god it’s not…she is so not worth it. don’t get me wrong but Taylor and Zac no no. Zac should go back to his gf..Vanessa!!!

  • skelington

    She seems to have taken up a new role as a beard. First bearding for Jake now this guy.

  • lauren

    dear god

  • de Cosmos

    @skelington:

  • Dakota

  • Lillie

  • HateSucks

    @Lillie:
    You must not love him that much. You don’t even know how to spell his name. Idiot.

  • HateSucks

    @b*tch:
    I blame your parents for giving birth to such a dumb f#%k.

  • Speak Now

    Hey haters, might want to take a page out of Taylor’s book. She’s got a heart and a soul and is actually kind to people. :) Go back to your autotune artists because Tay is REAL.

    Tay and Ed in the same film, YESSSSSSSS.

  • kyle

    It’s funny that some of you make nasty comments about an article that you totally misunderstood. Your reading comprehension needs to be improved. The article says, they will just be the voice over of the loveteam characters in The Lorax, an animated film. They are not lovers in real life, for pete’s sake.

  • Jokergurl

    Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
    Don’t forget your big shoes because you’re not yet quite full grown
    You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess just don’t ask me to hunch over because it’s bad for my back :) (Actually Taylor at 5’11 is taller than most actors.

  • http://koowie.com Koowie

    I wouldn’t be surprised even if Taylor was dating Zac Efron. Seems like Taylor falls for other stars real easily, But we love her no matter what!

  • dt

    Chord Overstreet, Zac Efron, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, Taylor Lautner, Joe Jonas.

    It’s such a “star of the moment” celebrity-obsessed list. Anyone buying that any of these were actually real relationship?

    Next week, it’s be Efron/Miley, Bieber/Swift, Selena Gomez/Lautner and their publicity agents will make them all rotate again.

  • ashleigh

    @loose:

    If you actually read the story you’ll see that they’re NOT dating. She’s playing his “love interest” in an animated movie.

    I can’t believe how many people commented on this with mean things like “she’s a whore” and “how many guys has she dated” WITHOUT READING THE STORY. It’s not that hard guys, god.

  • ashleigh

    @dt:

    Okay first of all, Taylor isn’t dating Zac Efron so you can go ahead and scratch that one off of your list. Also, she was seen out in public with Chord at a hockey game ONCE, that hardly means they’re in a relationship. They might be, I’m not saying I know for sure but apparently she knows his brother because he worked with her for this CMT Awards skit she did. They could just be friends hanging out.
    As for the others, it’s not like dated all of them at once. Joe Jonas was in 2008, Taylor Lautner and John Mayer in 2009, and Jake Gyllenhaal was at the end of 2010. You make it seem like she has a new guy every month, that is clearly not true.

    How about you grow up and stop criticising people when you’re unaware of the facts yourself.

  • Bliss

    They look hot together.

    Finally someone is replacing Jennifer Aniston in the dating everyone in Hollywood pool.

  • Kerri

    I would watch that just to hear zac’s voice. To all the haters stop it. We don’t know the whole story with zac and vanessa so stop bashing them. Most of the time stuff you read from the internet, magazines are not true. People make up stuff all the time.
