Taylor Swift Shares ‘Throwback’ Instagram Photo Of First Day On Set Of ‘Cats’ [Concert Ticket Info]
Taylor Swift is quite proud of her time on the set of Cats.
The Grammy winner — who will turn 30 on Friday — took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a throwback photo of herself on the first day on set of the musical fantasy film, which is an adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber‘s musical of the same name. In the photo, Swift is seen reaching up to touch the knob of a giant door.
“Basically, Bombalurina is one of those really mischievous cats you see in internet videos who has figured out how to open human doors,” wrote Swift, referencing her character.
Directed by Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech, Les Miserables), Cats also stars Judi Dench, James Corden, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen and Rebel Wilson. The first trailer for the film, which was released earlier this year, drew severe mockery from fans on Twitter who called it “creepy” because of how it portrayed the actors with cat costumes. Cats will be released nationwide on Dec. 20.
On Monday, Swift and Webber were nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Original Song for “Beautiful Ghosts,” which will appear in Cats. This marks the singer’s third Golden Globe nod.
“Congrats to my co-writer and buddy 4 life Andrew Lloyd Webber. This is just purrfect,” Swift wrote in an Instagram post in response to the nomination.

I woke up today to the news that Beautiful Ghosts is nominated for a Golden Globe – it’s so cool that one of the most fun, fulfilling creative experiences I’ve ever had is being honored in this way by the HFPA. I ended up spending many days on set watching the other performers do their scenes. Watching the character Victoria, played by @frankiegoestohayward inspired me so much and Beautiful Ghosts was the result. Congrats to my co-writer and buddy 4 life Andrew Lloyd Webber. This is just purrfect. 😸
