Joni Mitchell Shoots Down Taylor Swift–Starring Biopic and Taylor Swift

Cheekbones.

You won't see Taylor Swift's version of "River," it turns out. Although she previously expressed interest in playing singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell in the planned adaptation of Girls Like Us, Mitchell tells The Sunday Times that this will not, in fact, be the case: "I squelched that! I said to the producer, 'All you’ve got is a girl with high cheekbones.'" Mitchell also said of the source material, written by Sheila Weller, "It’s just a lot of gossip, you don’t have the great scenes. There’s a lot of nonsense about me in books, assumptions, assumptions, assum­p­tions." Guess "The Lucky One" was just a big waste of time then, wasn't it?
