Taylor Joins Kennedy Clan at Sundance Film Festival

“It was moving, hilarious, and beautiful,” Taylor tweets of documentary about Ethel Kennedy.

It's a safe bet that many of Taylor Swift's fans didn't know much before, if anything, about former U.S. Sen. Robert F. (Bobby) Kennedy, who was gunned down in 1968 when he was running for president. Safer still to say those fans didn't know of Bobby's widow, Ethel, now 83, with whom Bobby had 11 children.

Taylor herself, though, is a huge fan of the Kennedy clan, and she popped up over the weekend at the Sundance Film Festival to watch a documentary, Ethel, about Ethel Kennedy that was made by her youngest child, filmmaker Rory Kennedy.

The Associated Press even captured a pic of Taylor with Rory and Ethel Kennedy.

Taylor recently told Vogue magazine that the only time she has ever been starstruck was meeting Ethel Kennedy.

"She is one of my favorites, because you look back at the pictures of her and Bobby, and they always look like they are having the most fun out of everybody. You know, 11 kids, all these exotic animals on their property. I've read a lot about them."

After seeing the documentary, Taylor tweeted, “Went to Sundance to see Rory Kennedy’s documentary about her mother. . . . It was moving, hilarious, and beautiful.’’
