Taylor Swift as Rapunzel in New Disney Ad

Like Jennifer Lopez, Gisele Bundchen, Beyonce, Jessica Biel, Julianne Moore, Scarlett Johansson, Olivia Wilde and countless other A-Lister ladies before her, Taylor Swift is now starring in Disney Parks ad where she brings to life one of the Mouse House's most memorable characters for their ongoing Disney Dream Portrait campaign.

Slipping into Rapunzel's shoes (errrr, hair extensions) for this "Where A World of Adventure Awaits" spot was a dream come true for the Grammy winner. "When Disney came to me and said we want you to play Rapunzel, I was just so honored," Swift said. "It's such a wonderful character to get to play, a childhood fantasy come into reality for me."

Turns out, the gig couldn't have been a better fit because Swift got her start singing Disney songs! "My parents realized I was really obsessed with [singing] when I'd go up to strangers and sing Lion King songs," Swift laughs. "I think about all the times me and my little brother went to Disney World and we were able to escape to that place anytime we had a hard time. Any time you're going through something rough, you can go back into your imagination and you're at Disney World."

She looks nice!
My favorite Princess is Belle, but I have a special place for Mulan, Jasmine, and Tiana.

Belle is my favorite too. I even gave my daughter the name Belle as her middle name. I thought she'd come out with my dark features, brown hair and eyes. Nope. Blonde hair, blue eyes. Ohhh well.

How old is your daughter? I've had a couple of friends that were blonde babies whose hair darkened as they got to about age five or six.

She's only 5 months. My husband is very blonde. So, I guess it could stay blonde or maybe darken. Only time will tell.
