Entertainment Eddie Redmayne Puts Taylor Swift Romance Rumors to Rest, Says She Did an ‘Amazing’ Audition for Les Miserables
How much has Taylor Swift earned in 2016?
US singer Taylor Swift netted herself over $170 million (£137 million) in the past year according to reports. Forbes highest paid list has Miss Swift as number one and Adele taking up the runner-up spot. 26 year old Swift amassed earnings of £137 million over the past year and it dwarfed her nearest rival Adele, who pulled in £65 million. Taylor Swift Earns While on Holiday The figures are amazing due to the fact that for the most of 2016 the artist was on holiday with her then boyfriend (and potential 007) UK actor Tom Hiddleston. The actor and the American singer were seemingly joined at the hip until their much hyped romance imploded after a very intensive burst of publicity shots and photo opportunities. Many thought the romance was a publicity stunt to boost Hiddleston’s US standing and to promote Swift in the UK along the way. We will probably never know what is true. The relationship lasted for three months and even saw them dubbed ‘Hiddleswift’. Endorsements and Touring Swift has not only her live appearances and CD’s to her name, there are also some highly lucrative endorsement deals with the likes of Diet Coke, Sony and shoe company Keds. It seems according to reports that an artist can earn more by touring than anything else. UK singer Adele is said to have earned approximately £179,000 a day for her most recent tour.

“Can you put the rumors to rest: did you ever go out on a date with Taylor Swift?” the fan asked.
“I absolutely can put the rumors to rest,” the 34-year-old Oscar winner replied. “I never went out on a date with Taylor Swift.”
However, Redmayne, who is now married to Hannah Bagshawe and is a father to their daughter Iris, did reveal that he met the 26-year-old pop star when she auditioned for the 2012 film adaptation of Les Misérables.
“She was amazing in the audition. We got to sing together which was a big moment for me but no, we never went out,” he said.
According to Time, Swift tried out for the role of Eponine, a poor girl who has unrequited love for Redmayne’s character, Marius. Although Lea Michele, Evan Rachel Wood and Scarlett Johansson also auditioned, the part went to Samantha Barks.
“She was extraordinary,” Redmayne said of Swift’s audition.
Cohen also took the opportunity to ask Redmayne what he thought of Anne Hathaway getting “flak” for her role as Fantine in the musical movie.
“I honestly don’t know, because I think she’s formidable,” he answered. “I think she was kind of extraordinary in that film. It was an amazing thing because we were doing it live and it was the first time any of us had done it. One person would go and sing live for the first time and come and sort of report back, about how it had gone. She basically educated the rest of us on how to do it.”
