Last Friday, Taylor Swift finally released the re-recording of her 2012 “Red” album titled “Red (Taylor’s Version).” That same day, Netflix released the film “Red Notice,” which starred “Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot, and Dwayne Johnson.
Although fans were hoping to see Swift make an appearance in the new Netflix number one hit, there was a surprise pop star cameo at the end of the film: just not from Swift. Instead, her friend and fellow singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran stepped in, comically taking a few swings at the police with his guitar before he was led off stage.
Although Swift didn’t make an appearance in “Red Notice,” she has collaborated with Reynolds and his wife Blake Lively several times in the past – even getting their children involved in her work!
Ryan Reynolds Makes A Cameo Appearance In ‘You Need To Calm Down’
The 2019 bop “You Need to Calm Down” was the second music video Swift released from her “Lover” album. The star-studded music video features a cameo appearance by Reynolds and includes a plethora of other celebrities, including actress Laverne Cox, singer Adam Lambert, host RuPaul, entertainer Billy Porter, and even Katy Perry, which marked the end of a long feud between her and Swift.
Reynolds can be seen at the 2:58 mark in the video with a paintbrush hanging from the corner of his mouth. He casually glances over the side of a painting he is working on to witness the epic food fight unfolding in front of him.
Their Daughter James Appears In ‘Gorgeous’
Fans can hear a child-like voice saying “Gorgeous” at the beginning of the track on Swift’s sixth studio album “Reputation,” which was released in 2017. Although fans initially suspected that the voice belonged to North, the daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, other fans thought that it belonged to Reynold and Lively’s daughter, James.
The mystery was finally cleared up once and for all when the “Reputation” album was released, as two-year-old James Reynolds is credited as the “Baby Intro Voice” in the album’s liner notes.
All Of Reynold and Lively’s Children Make An Appearance On ‘Folklore’
One of the most popular songs on Swift’s 2020 indie-folk eighth studio album “folklore” is “betty.” The lyrics weave a tapestry of romance and heartbreak between three characters: Betty, James, and Inez.
Here’s the catch: although Reynolds and Lively welcomed their third child in October 2019, they never released the name of the child to the public. It wasn’t until Swift wrote and released “betty” that fans realized that James and Inez were the names of Reynold and Lively’s first two children, which led many to speculate that Betty was the name of their third child.
Once the song was released, the couple finally confirmed that Betty was, in fact, the name of their third child.
Blake Lively Directs ‘I Bet You Think About Me (Featuring Chris Stapleton)(Taylor’s Version)’
On Monday, November 15, actress Blake Lively finally made her directorial debut with the music video for Swift’s new song “I Bet You Think About Me.” Featuring the vocals of Chris Stapleton, the song was originally supposed to make an appearance on Swift’s 2012 album “Red.” However, the song was eventually struck from the original album.
Although the original “Red” album only featured sixteen songs, “Red (Taylor’s Version)” reveals all thirty songs that were intended to go on the “Red” album, including the ever-popular “All Too Well.” The song was so popular that Swift ended up turning the newly released 10-minute version of the song into a short film featuring Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien.
