Keeping the economy afloat: Swift and Gerwig fans previously joked that the ladies were keeping the American economy afloat with their successful careers.
“If Taylor Swift were an economy, it would be bigger than 50 countries,” said Dan Fleetwood, president of QuestionPro Research and Insights, in an article for GlobalNewsWire.
Meanwhile, Gerwig’s Barbie surpassed Marvel’s The Avengers as the 11th highest-grossing film of all time at the domestic box office, with $626.1 million.
Barbie has also grossed $1.416 billion at the global box office, ranking it 14th worldwide.
While the four could have discussed her impact on the American economy, they could also have reminisced about the time Dern starred in one of Swift’s videos.
The Oscar winner even previously recalled how a young fan recognized her from the Bejeweled video, and not her iconic Jurassic Park role.
She shared the funny anecdote on Jimmy Kimmel Live in January, recalling how she was at a friend’s farm on Oahu, where she filmed the original Jurassic Park movie (1993).
‘I was leaving his farm and there was a guided tour of “the sights of Jurassic Park” with a little sign that said “Welcome to Jurassic Park.” And while I was after the beach and seeing our friends, we got in the car, I stopped right in front of the sign and here comes a group of people.
‘This girl comes running up to me and says, “Oh my God! Oh my God!” I was like… “I just want to be with my family, let’s not make a whole Jurassic Park thing.” [thing]”said the star.
“She’s like, ‘Aren’t you the girl in the Taylor Swift video?'” Dern called the experience “amazing.”

She also gushed about working with Swift, who directed the video and played Cinderella, alongside Dern, who was the evil stepmother, and the Haim sisters, as the stepsisters.
‘Taylor asked me, and I thought it was an incredible moment. And I was surprised by how great a filmmaker he is, how prepared he was, how improvisational and fun he was. I had the best time of my life. So, it was amazing.”
Swift also previously praised Dern, calling her “the coolest” for agreeing to star in the video.
The singer joked that she got Dern to appear in the video by telling her that she had written a one-scene script in which the actress would call her a “tired, tacky wench” during her appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in October. .
“And she was like, ‘I’m depressed,'” Swift shared, adding, “She’s great, she’s so funny.”
