Alyson Hannigan Recalls ‘Freakout’ After Hearing Taylor Swift’s ‘American Pie’ Reference in ‘So High School’

Alyson Hannigan is loving her tiny role in Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s love story.

 

The actress reflected on the iconic movies she appeared in for a new interview with Vulture, and was asked about Swift’s “So High School,” in which the superstar sings about her time spent with the Kansas City Chiefs tight end: “I’m watching American Pie with you on a Saturday night.”
Hannigan, who portrayed Michelle opposite Jason Biggs’ Jim in the beloved 1999 comedy, told the publication that she’s a Swiftie. “I had my little countdown waiting for the album to drop,” she recalled. “I texted my kids, ‘Don’t bug me, say ‘good night,’ just pretend I’m not here,’ because I am going to listen to this album without any interruption. I listened to the first part, went to sleep, and woke up to, ‘Holy cow, she’s released a second part!’ I started listening to it, and when I got to ‘So High School,’ I was like, ‘What?’ I thought maybe I was still sort of sleeping and imagining it. But when I heard it, I was freaking out. I woke up my entire family who seemed less enthusiastic than I’d like them to be. Then I called a friend, and she and I had a nice freakout together. I was so happy. Basically, I was on the date with Travis and Taylor.”
She added, “Sasha [Farber] was my partner on Dancing With the Stars. And I did a little story on Instagram and he filmed it, and he posted it on his feed. It was the two of us driving around listening to ‘So High School.’ He posted it on his feed, and it was liked by Taylor Swift! Like, why wasn’t it on my feed?”
So High School” is one of two tracks on the extended anthology version of Tortured Poets Department that fans believe is about Kelce, along with “The Alchemy.” On the latter, she makes references to football games and sings, “Beer sticking to the floor, cheers chanted ’cause they said/ There was no chance trying to be the greatest in the league/ Where’s the trophy? He just comes running over to me.”

Chiefs’ Andy Reid says his name came up when Travis Kelce first met Taylor Swift
The particulars of how Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce’s romance with superstar singer Taylor Swift began are well-known at this point.
Kelce tried unsuccessfully to get a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it to Swift last summer when she was playing two concerts at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.
On his New Heights podcast, Kelce lamented his missed opportunity, a move that Swift later called “metal as hell.” The two began dating soon after Kelce’s public proclamation.
We know little about what happened between their first meeting and when Swift turned the NFL on its ear by showing up for the Chiefs-Bears game at Arrowhead Stadium in September.
But we know that Chiefs coach Andy Reid’s name came up when the couple first spoke.
Reid revealed that nugget this week while on the Y’s Guys podcast with Dave McCann and Blaine Fowler.
“Funny story,” Reid said, “when Trav met her, she goes, ‘You know, I know your coach and his wife.’ And he goes. ‘What coach?’ She goes, ‘Coach Reid.’ And he kind of went, ‘Oh great.’
“So, her father, Scott, is a Eagles fan. I met him back when I was with the Eagles. He had played football, I believe, at Delaware. And so he understands the game and gets all of that and what goes into it. And so I had met Taylor back when I was in Philadelphia.”
Reid said his wife, Tammy, talks with Scott Swift on a regular basis and has done so for years.
“She’s everybody’s best friend and everybody’s mother, grandmother, you know however you look at it,” Reid said sweetley of Tammy.
Reid was asked what he thought about Swift’s fans becoming interested in the NFL. He thinks it’s great, and believes the Chiefs have been good for Swift.
There was a great photo of Reid and Swift pointing at one another during the on-field celebration in Baltimore after the Chiefs won the AFC Championship Game.
“She brings a whole other group of young ladies and older ladies to be interested in this sport and it’s a great sport,” Reid said. “I mean it’s great for everybody. Girls flag football is going crazy and I love that part. There are so many great lessons you can learn about life in this sport. And it’s fun to play. So I would tell you, Taylor, she’s a sweetheart. She came in she made … all the offensive lineman homemade Pop-Tarts. She won over the group right there.
“And so it’s kind of neat to see her where she doesn’t have to be it. She can sit back. I think she’s enjoying that sitting back and being able to escape from being Taylor Swift for a minute and just being a fan. And she’s all in.”
