Taylor Swift: Katie Holmes Gushes Over ‘The Giver’ Co-Star

taylorswift-danceclass-021714Taylor Swift spent Presidents Day in one of her favorite places – dance class!

The 24-year-old was spotted heading into her dance class on Monday in an all black outfit. Earlier in the day, Taylor sent some sweet birthday wishes to her pal Ed Sheeran and she has also been super busy in the studio working on her new album. Taylor spent Valentine’s Day with Max Martin and Johan Shellback in the studio and we have a feeling they are producing some hits. The duo helped Taylor with her last album Red.

Taylor will be on the big screen soon in the movie adaptation of The Giver and one of her co-stars, Katie Holmes, is singing her praise! Katie told Extra, “[The film] is based on the Lois Lowery book. We shot that in the fall in South Africa. Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep are the stars and also Taylor Swift.

She is awesome… I love that girl. I just think she is so smart. She’s so young, really brilliant and works very, very hard.”

It also looks like Taylor has been playing matchmaker once again. According to HollywoodLife, she was responsible for setting up Selena Gomez & Niall Horan, who were spotted together hanging out in London over the weekend. “Taylor is the one that set Niall and Selena up. Selena has been having such a hard time moving on from Justin, and Taylor hates seeing her sad,” the source reveals. “She’s been trying to set her up with a bunch of different guys but Niall was the only one so far that Selena got excited about.”

What do you think of Niall & Selena as a couple? Are they just friends? Are you excited to see Taylor in The Giver?
