Who's the hottest Hollywood Taylor?
Katherine Heigl was among the A-List crowd at Elle’s Women in Hollywood event in Beverly Hills on Monday night, and the actress was all smiles as she worked the room. 

She stars in the celeb-packed film New Year’s Eve, and chatted with Celebuzz about the upcoming project. But it wasn’t one of her costars that had Heigl a little bit starstruck recently.

When Katherine wasn’t busy filming, she joined husband Josh Kelly on the road where he was touring with Taylor Swift … and the two blondes totally hit it off.

“I adore that girl,” Katherine told us on the carpet. “I was so excited to meet her! I tried to keep it cool but after chatting for only 20 minutes I was like ‘we’re best friends now!’ She is so sweet and down to earth.”

Coincidentally, Taylor was in the NYE prequel Valentine’s Day. Heigl has been hamming it up with musicians everywhere. In New Year’s Eve, the former Grey’s Anatomy star gets up close and personal with Jon Bon Jovi.

“I play a caterer that gets the gig to cater the big, fancy New Year’s Eve party in New York,” she told us. “Her ex-boyfriend, played by Jon Bon Jovi, is a very famous, big-time musician, comes back to play Times Square.”

“And yes, we totally make out,” laughed Katherine.

“It’s really interesting talking to Jon about his career and all the little things that I now know about from my husband, like the lingo and when you’re touring, how do you feel bout your rider,” Heigl laughed, adding: “I dropped in as much music lingo as I could!”

Eve hits theaters in December! Check out the trailer below.
