Los Angeles: Actress Katie Holmes is gaga over pop star Taylor Swift and says she is "awesome".

The 35-year-old says her "The Giver" co-star is brilliant, reports dailymail.co.uk.

"She is awesome...I love that girl. I just think she is so smart. Sh``s so young, really brilliant and works very, very hard," Holmes told Extra magazine.

The duo spent quality time together in South Africa last year while they were shooting for the sci-fi movie, which tells the story of a seemingly perfect Utopia which is built on a dark secret.

"The Giver" also features Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep.
