Ethel Kennedy: Didn't play Taylor Swift matchmaker

August 2nd, 2012 in News

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Ethel Kennedy says she didn't play matchmaker between a grandson and Taylor Swift but the Kennedys would be "lucky" to have the pop star in the family.

Kennedy is the subject of a new HBO documentary. She was asked Wednesday about reports that she set up the 22-year-old pop star 18-year-old Conor Kennedy. He's the grandson of Ethel Kennedy and the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy.

Ethel Kennedy told the Television Critics Association, "Certainly not." But the 84-year-old added, "We should be so lucky."

Ethel Kennedy's daughter, filmmaker Rory Kennedy, directed and produced the documentary "Ethel." It debuts Oct. 18 on HBO.

Rory Kennedy would confirm only one relationship involving Swift: The one Swift has with the Kennedy family.

Rory Kennedy said Swift is a "great friend of all of ours."
