SAN DIEGO, July 25 (UPI) -- After starring opposite to Taylor Swift in the sci-fi thriller, The Giver, Jeff Bridges said he thinks the young songstress is "such a good actress."

The 64-year-old actor opened up about the "Red" singer while promoting the upcoming film at the annual Comic-Con convention in San Diego on Thursday.

"She's so sweet and such a good actress and, of course, a phenomenal songwriter and musician," Bridges said.

Asked whether he sees an acting future for the singer, Bridges relied: "Oh yeah, I think so."

Swift plays a character named Rosemary in the Phillip Noyce-directed flick. The film marks her second starring role in a motion picture following her part in 2010's Valentine's Day.

"Taylor was so terrific," Bridges said of working with the country music star. "Our scenes we had together -- a lot of the scenes were at the piano, so both being lovers of music, we talked a lot of music and got to pick a little bit between set-ups."

The cinematographic adaptation of author Lois Lowry's novel about a dystopian world also stars Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, Odeya Rush and Brenton Thwaites. The Giver opens in theaters August 15.
