Millions of teenage girls around the world would give anything for the chance to meet Taylor Swift, but the singer recently got star-struck herself.

Swift has been in South Africa filming the adaptation of Lois Lowry’s “The Giver,” and with castmates like Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes and Jeff Bridges, she was blown away.

“I couldn’t believe it was happening to me,” she told “Access Hollywood.” “I still can’t believe I shot in South Africa and shot all my scenes with Jeff Bridges. It was unreal.”

The performer has dipped her toe into the acting pool in films like “Valentine’s Day” and “The Lorax,” but her role as Rosemary is easily her biggest acting challenge to date.

“You learn so much more, because I have taken acting classes and read as much as I possibly can on it and done theater before all this started,” she told “Access,” “[But] you learn more by actually doing it than you could ever learn in preparation.”

For her part, Holmes seemed to be taken with her co-star as well, sharing a picture on Twitter with her arm around the country star:

“The Giver” is expected to hit theaters on August 15, 2014. Are you excited to see Taylor’s dramatic acting chops?
