Her latest movie, Someone Great inspired a song on Taylor Swift’s new album.
The song Death By a Thousand Cuts was written when Taylor says she loved how the movie depicted Gina’s character moving on after a breakup.
‘There’s something that you get from watching a good story take place,’ Taylor told radio host Elvis Duran on Friday while at SirusXM.
‘I watched this movie on Netflix called Someone Great; it’s this amazing, like, well done romantic comedy with heart… It’s about this relationship that ends after, like, eight or nine years.
‘I read the synopsis of the movie and it’s like, ‘Girl goes through break-up’, and, ‘Girl goes on trip with her girlfriends…’ and I’m reading this and I’m like, the movie’s gonna be like, ‘Get over him, girl, he’s a jerk. Let’s take shots!’ And I was like, ‘I’m down! Let’s watch this movie,’ she said on air.
‘And then you turn it on and it’s this gut punch… It’s a movie about how she has to end this relationship that she didn’t want to end, because she’s still in love with the person, but they just grew apart – and he’s not a jerk. It’s just sad… It’s deeply, deeply upsetting.’
The singer admitted that she cried and that she would wake up from dreams as if she was living the same scenario.

But then she revealed that the writer/director Jennifer Kaytin Robinson emailed her and told her it was based on her actual break-up and that Taylor played a small part in that.
‘She’s like: ‘Hey, I just wanted to say thank you for mentioning my movie… It was about my own break-up… While I was moving across the country, the album I had on repeat was (my album) 1989 and specifically a song of yours called Clean.’
Taylor talked about the full circle moment and how meaningful it was to her.
