Mamet ‘honoured’ by Swift mention

Zosia Mamet has a lot of respect for Taylor Swift.

Zosia Mamet is “honoured” Taylor Swift relates to her Girls character.

The pop star admitted in a recent Rolling Stone interview she sees herself as a more of a “Shoshanna”, compared to other characters on the hit US TV dramedy about a group of New York City girls.

And Zosia thinks it’s “great” Taylor feels so connected to the role.

“I’m honoured! That’s great. Shoshanna would be over the moon. Oh, she would be thrilled,” the actress gushed to the Huffington Post.

The 26-year-old star admits she doesn’t know Taylor very well in real life. But she has much respect for the singer based on what she’s seen in the press.

“I am not a huge follower of what’s super up to date with the celebs these days, so I can’t say I know a whole lot about her public persona,” she confessed. “I only know [of] her seemingly being a really savvy, classy career lady.”

Zosia’s praise follows on the heels of Taylor’s comments about how she sees herself reflected through the actress’ character. The songstress feels a deeper personal connection with Shoshanna as opposed to Jessa, played by Jemima Kirke, Marnie, played by Allison Williams, or Hannah, played by Lena Dunham.

“Shoshanna gets excited about things, she’s really girly. And when she was in a relationship that was very comfortable, she made the decision to get out and go experience new things on her own,” Taylor told Rolling Stone, musing, “And now she’s becoming more sure of herself and taking life head-on, in a way that I can relate to. Even though I’ve never accidentally smoked crack at a warehouse party and run pantsless through Brooklyn.”
