Read out below a new interview with E!
We’ll come right out and say it: Jaime King might have the coolest friend group in Hollywood.
Recall she’s BFFs with Taylor Swift , plus the rest of the #squadgoals bunch. As you’re probably well aware, T.Swift is the godmother of her newborn son, Leo Thames Knight. And while she might’ve been caught up in a whirlwind international tour, nothing was going to stop her from stepping up to perform her bestie/god-mama duties for Jaime. Now that’s a friendship goal, folks.
Also with Hailee Steinfeld, Diane Kruger and Seth Rogen as just a handful of her A-list buds, you know the gal’s got some epic stories to dish—like for example, the awkward Halloween costume encounter that still makes her blush.
We caught up with Jaime at Maison Margiela’s Smells Like Memories bash in Los Angeles, where she talked to E! News about T.Swift’s unconventional (but totally perfect) godmother gift, her super awkward costume encounter at Rogen’s annual Halloween bash and, yes, her always on-point style. Now go ahead—read on to hear from Jaime herself!
Did Taylor Swift give your son a godmother present (other than that amazingbaby shower and then that onstage shout out)?
Her gift is her being-ness and her loving for him. It’s the fact that she was in the middle of one of the biggest world tours in music history and took the time to come and be with us on several occasions. It’s a really profound thing so many people would not do that, especially with the schedule she has where she barely has any time to breathe. Seemingly it’s so effortless for her; she is a gift. Her being-ness is a gift.
Did Taylor ask you to be in the “Bad Blood” music video?
Originally the plan was for me to be in the video, and then when she became godmother she got really protective and was like “I don’t want anything to happen to the baby!” Like what was I going to do, nun-chuck someone while I was pregnant? That wouldn’t be cute.
As her good friend, how do you react when you see T.Swift perform?
I can’t control myself when I see her perform, she’s so freaking amazing. I think that’s why everybody loves her.
