Taylor Swift really sat in mud, 'Out of the Woods' director confirms
Because the burning question we all need answered is whether Taylor had to do the dirty work herself
Sceptics, this is something you need to know. The Out of the Woods music video now serves as solid proof that pop superstar Taylor Swift can lie around in mud and be okay with it. Director Joseph Kahn said that she not only tolerated freezing temperatures at some of their shooting locations, wearing only a simple blue dress, but she "suffered for her art" and "just gangstered it." No stunt doubles, no fake snow.
Taylor was so dedicated to making this video. I was wrapped in snow gear. She was in a dress. She suffered for her art. #OOTWMusicVideo— Joseph Kahn (@JosephKahn) January 1, 2016
Taylor chose to stay in the mud for hours to keep the shoot moving. No in and out. Just gangstered it. She is bad ass. #OOTWMusicVideo— Joseph Kahn (@JosephKahn) January 1, 2016
In art, how you do it is as important as what you do. The brushstrokes are as important as the idea.— Joseph Kahn (@JosephKahn) January 1, 2016
Glad he cleared that up. Now, whenever you walk home in the rain, drenched up to your knees, think of Taylor and how in her quest for artistic perfection, mud and ungodly temperatures were just a small hitch.
