So, we got to sing together, which was a big moment for me, but, no, we never went out." It was not revealed why Taylor Swift did not get the part.She was not the only A-lister who wanted to nab the role.Eddie Redmayne has cleared up those Taylor Swift dating rumours.The Fantastic Beasts actor, 34, said he has met the singer – but revealed they never went on a date.It turns out, Taylor Swift did a pretty amazing job auditioning for the role.Eddie Redmayne spilled, "She auditioned for Les Misérables, and she was amazing in the audition.The pair tied the knot at Babington House in Somerset in December 2014 and welcomed a daughter, Iris Mary, in June 2016.
But during the show, a caller, who is a fan of Redmayne, asked a question that's totally out of topic. I never went out on a date with Taylor Swift." The Oscar winner further explained that he met the singer when she auditioned for "Les Miserables". So we got to sing together, which was a big moment for me. The British actor also defended Anne Hathaway, whom Cohen mentioned received a lot of "mishegas" after her role as Fantine in "Les Miserables".
Not surprisingly, the answer is no, Eddie and Taylor were never romantically involved.
She was with Hiddleston for about four seconds before the world found out (via a photo-op make-out session), so it would've come as quite a shock if Taylor dated a well-known Brit and actually kept it under wraps.
They reportedly enjoyed drinks together and Swift was said to have “loved this image of a British boyfriend”. The couple tied the knot at Babington House in Somerset in December 2014.
They welcomed their first child together, daughter Iris, in June of this year.
In a recent interview, Eddie Redmayne addressed the old issue.
