Seriously. That’s how Idris Elba and Taylor Swift were introduced at the Golden Globes last night – as co-stars of the upcoming Cats. Again and again, what even is this movie? At some point, in some scene, are Idris and Taylor going to start, like, purring at each other? He was actually asked about working with her and, specifically acting with her. Full Story
