Keeping the economy going: Fans of Swift and Gerwig previously joked that the ladies kept the American economy going with their successful careers
“If Taylor Swift were an economy, it would be bigger than 50 countries,” said Dan Fleetwood, president of QuestionPro Research and Insights, in a story for GlobalNewsWire.
Meanwhile, Gerwig’s Barbie passed Marvel’s The Avengers as the eleventh highest-grossing film of all time at the domestic box office, with $626.1 million.
Barbie also raked in $1.416 billion at the global box office, which ranks 14th worldwide.
While the foursome could have discussed their impact on the American economy, they might also have reminisced about the time Dern starred in one of Swift’s videos.
The Oscar winner even previously recalled how a young fan recognized her from the Bejeweled video, and not from her iconic Jurassic Park role.
She shared the hilarious anecdote on Jimmy Kimmel Live in January, recalling being at a friend’s ranch in Oahu where she filmed the original Jurassic Park (1993).
“I just came from their farm and there’s a tour of ‘the sights of Jurassic Park’ with a little sign that says ‘Welcome to Jurassic Park.’ And while I was after the beach and seeing our friends, we got in the car, and I was standing right in front of the sign, and here comes a group of people.”
‘This girl comes running up to me and says, “Oh, my God! Oh, my God!” I was like… “I just want to be with my family, let’s not do a whole Jurassic Park thing,” the star said.
“She says, ‘Aren’t you the girl in the Taylor Swift video?'” Dern called the experience “amazing.”
Music Video: Dern played the evil stepmother in Swift’s Cindarella-inspired Bejeweled music video in 2022; seen in a still from the video
She was also excited about working with Swift, who directed the video and played Cinderella, alongside Dern, the evil stepmother, and the Haim sisters as the stepsisters.
“Taylor asked me, and it sounded like an incredible time. And I was amazed at what a great filmmaker she is, how prepared she was, how improvisational and fun it was. I had the time of my life. So it was great.’
Swift also previously raved about Dern, calling her “the coolest” for agreeing to be in the video.
The singer joked that she got Dern to appear in the video by telling her that she had written a one-scene script in which the actress would call her a “tired, clingy girl” during her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in the lead role in October. .
“And she said, ‘I’m down,'” Swift shared, adding, “She’s the coolest, she’s so funny.”
