Joey King Reveals the Connection Between Taylor Swift & Shaving Her Head for the First Time

Joey King poses for photos in her backyard after taping an interview for Rolling Stone‘s The First Time series.

The 20-year-old actress made the virtual appearance to promote her Netflix film The Kissing Booth 2, which will be released on Friday.

During the interview, Joey talked about her first time being in a music video, which was Taylor Swift‘s “Mean.” Coincidentally, the video was taped one day before she had to shave her head to play young Talia Al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises.

“Funny story… the crazy thing is I filmed that music video the day before I shaved my head for The Dark Knight Rises. And I remember, I was on that set, and we had to get it in because I needed to shave my head the next day for the movie. We scheduled it so I could do the music video and she was so amazing and so sweet. I was unbelievably excited. There was like a rainbow cloud above my head, I was so happy,” Joey said. “I remember she was like, ‘Oh my god, I can’t believe you’re shaving your head tomorrow. We’re going to have to do something really cute with your hair.’ So we did that little, cute, like, straight-little bob and I was just so happy and excited. It was like the best day ever.”

FYI: Joey is wearing pants and a button down shirt from Bode as well as rings from Pearls Before Swine.
