People are so preoccupied with Taylor Swift that there are countless conspiracy theories about her. From actually being a secret agent to being a clone or reincarnation of Zeena Schreck – that one’s hard not to believe if you see photos of them side by side – Taylor is the talk of the town! Well, now there’s a new conspiracy theory about the pop star, and it involves the movie Argylle.

The Theory

Argylle is an action movie that – based on the trailer – seems to center around a cat who looks suspiciously like Swift’s feline Meredith. The film is based on a novel written by Elly Conway, but the book isn’t actually out yet. To add to the suspicion, Elly Conway doesn’t seem to have any previously written work that anyone knows about. All this has led to the theory that Elly Conway is just a pen name, and the true writer is Taylor Swift.


This conspiracy theory has gotten so widespread that the film’s director Matthew Vaughn felt the need to speak out. Vaughn explained, “There is a real book … and it’s a really good book. And there is an Elly Conway who wrote the book, but it’s not Taylor Swift. And I say that because I imagine Taylor Swift has a load of people trying to jump on her bandwagon left, right, and center, and I don’t want to be a part of that club. I did read the conspiracies and I was like, wow, they don’t leave a stone unturned! But it’s not Taylor Swift. She definitely didn’t write the book.”

If you ask us, Vaughn just blew a golden opportunity to guarantee that every Swiftie would see his movie.
