Mainly because of how much she looks like, oh, y'know, Taylor Swift.

Olivia told BuzzFeed News the comparisons started when she had her long brown hair cut and lightened, similar to Swift's.

When she and her friends went to Taylor's show in Melbourne in December last week, Olivia says she was approached by dozens of people asking for photos.

"It took us an hour to walk a 10-minute trip because once I stopped for one photo, 20 others would ask. It was crazy."

At the moment Olivia works at Target Country, but she says she's thinking of studying acting at university next year.

"It's what I really enjoy doing," she said. "It's the only thing that doesn't feel like a chore."

Olivia recently met Taylor Swift after her Melbourne concert and said the biggest difference between them was height.


"We started talking about how she has to wear flats because she has tendonitis from months of touring," said Olivia. "I wanted to thank her for everything she's done and tell her that her song 'The Best Day' helped me through my mum's passing this October from uterine cancer and she quickly lit up and said, 'I saw your post on Tumblr! That's why you're here! I'm so, so, sorry you had to go through that and I'm sorry I couldn't play that song.'

"I just couldn't believe she was real, and it was all a haze and so quick, and her people rushed us along for a photo."

She hopes her likeness to Taylor Swift can help her garner enough publicity to bring attention to uterine and endometrial cancers.

"It's killing women every day, and usually it's diagnosed at an older age, but my mum was 51.

"Honestly I think all these stories are sort of shallow and pointless unless I can contribute something meaningful."
