Taylor Swift has lived such a charmed life and had so many career highlights that you'd think it was impossible for her to choose just one. But Taylor says she was blown away by getting the chance recently to act alongside Meryl Streep in Jeff Bridges in the upcoming film 'The Giver.'

"It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Honestly," she gushed to Access Hollywood. "I couldn't believe it was happening to me. I still can't believe I shot in South Africa and shot all my scenes with Jeff Bridges. It was unreal."

Taylor was snapped on the movie's Cape Town set last month wearing a dark wig. She was also spotted out on the town after the first day of filming, enjoying dinner with her other 'Giver' co-stars, Katie Holmes and Alexander Skarsgard.

She only just wrapped the film and is already in the studio working on her fifth album, so don't anyone dare call T. Swizzle a slacker! She certainly threw herself into her movie role:

"Seriously, I couldn't believe I got to be a part of the experience," she continues. "And I just tried to work as hard as I could and just throw myself into that environment as much as I possibly could and it was really long hours and it was a lot of preparation and getting into character and all that."

'The Giver,' which is based on a 1993 young adult novel about a perfect world, hits theaters Aug. 15, 2014.
