Jeff Bridges is aware Taylor Swift is a talented musician, but he's also certain of her future as she mines new professional challenges on film.

"She's so sweet and such a good actress and, of course, a phenomenal songwriter and musician," Bridges, 64, said Thursday while promoting their new film together, The Giver at the annual Comic-Con event, held at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel in San Diego.

But could an acting career be in the pop and country star's future?

"Oh, yeah," replied Bridges. "I think so."



The two enjoyed some bonding time making music together between scenes on the film, an adaption of the popular and once-banned 1993 young-adult science-fiction book by author Lois Lowry.



"Taylor was so terrific," Bridges said of her screen work. "Our scenes we had together – a lot of the scenes were at the piano, so both being lovers of music, we talked a lot of music and got to pick a little bit between set-ups."

The Giver, which also stars Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, Odeya Rush and Brenton Thwaites, opens Aug. 15.
