Kennedy, the subject of the new HBO documentary “Ethel,” was asked Wednesday about reports that she set up the 22-year-old Swift and Conor Kennedy, 18, grandson of Ethel Kennedy’s husband, the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy.

“Certainly not,” Ethel Kennedy responded to TV critics. She added: “We should be so lucky.”

The movie’s director and producer, Rory Kennedy — Ethel’s youngest daughter — said that Swift is a “great friend” of the Kennedy clan. And, Rory said, Swift is “awesome.”
