So Robert [Rodriguez] (the director) embarrassed me by saying, ‘Oh it’s going to be green screen so you don’t actually have to kiss Taylor. You can kiss this wooden pole.’ So he wrapped this wooden pole in green tape, made me say my lines and kiss the wooden pole like it was Taylor,” she explained to PopEater. “I was like, ‘Alright cool. Let’s do this.’”

They knew I was freaking out about it cause the moms had been talking about it,” she admitted. “I was 11 or 12 when we shot it, and we were like best friends. I was like, ‘This is weird!’ Taylor made fun of be about that forever. The whole entire time I had no idea. I was so into it.”
