Taylor Swift criticised her face while filming her music video for ‘Me!’, claiming she looked “slappable” in the first take.
Miss Americana gave fans an intimate insight into Taylor Swift’s life away from the spotlight, including her relationship with Joe Alwyn, her songwriting techniques, and how she’s been affected by people’s cruel comments about her.
Fans are now loving the pop star more than ever before, with people who were never Swifties announcing a new-found respect for Taylor after seeing how she deals with what she’s been through.
After the first take of one scene, Taylor watched the clip back with the director and accused herself of having “a mean face sometimes”.
She said: “I need to work on my face. I look like I have a mean face sometimes, when I’m not trying to, do you know what I mean?
“I have a really slappable face, you just want to be like ‘what are you plotting?’ ‘What’s she planning?’ I’m not meaning to look like that.”
Shocked at her comments, director Dave Meyers interjected: “Slappable? Ouch!” before adding: “You’re confident and strong, it’s the correct one.”
But Taylor insisted: “I’m gonna try and be more likeable in the next one.”
Fans were shocked to see Taylor call her own face “slappable”, with many upset to see the star speak about herself in such a way, while others said they related.
