Taylor Swift has been dating the 27 years old British actor, Joe Alwyn for the past two years. Yet, surprisingly, we know next to nothing about their relationship. In fact, I did not even know Taylor was dating. It turns out that Joe is a pretty private guy. His policy of privacy is also rubbing off on Taylor.
Who is Joe Alwyn?
Joe Alwyn is an up and coming actor. He had already came into the spotlight with Boy Erased. A story about a homosexual young man whose parents commit him to religious camp. The movie starred Nicole Kidman and Joel Edgerton. He also features in the latest movie, The Favourite. He plays the wealthy nobleman Masham who is attracted to Abigail played by Emma Stone. Also in the movie are Rachel Weisz and Olivia Coleman. His upcoming projects include, Mary Queen Of Scots with Margot Robbie and Siarose Ronan, and Operation Finalewith Ben Kingsley. So, it is safe to conclude that Joe’s star is on the rise.
Joe Alwyn Dating Taylor Swift
Among other things, it is interesting to know that Joe is also dating the American pop sensation Taylor Swift. This comes as a surprise because there has hardly been any peep about the relationship. Anyone who knows Taylor Swift, know that Taylor’s relationship are huge. They have tabloid sections dedicated to them. Her relationships have been well publicized. The list includes the likes of Joe Jonas, John Mayer, Taylor Lautner, Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal, Calvin Harris and Tom Hiddleston. Let’s just say, Taylor’s list of exes would have been longer if she had sung Ariana’s Thank U, Next.
She did address her exes in the video for ‘Look What You Made Me Do’. She reportedly started dating Joe Alwyn about two years ago. That is all we know really. That is all that came out of the whole relationship.
Reason Behind the Privacy
It turns out that we don’t know anything about the new relationship because of Joe Alwyn. While doing press tours, he has been hounded by the press for details about his relationship with Taylor Swift. He has remained tight lipped about it. He had only gave briefest responses when asked about her political stance for midterm election.

I’m writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I’ll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent. I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway. So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting! 🗳😃🌈
Joe simply showed his support for Taylor’s efforts.

In a recent post on her Instagram, Taylor Swift showed her support for his new film The Favourite.
Joe Alwyn Keeps it Professional
In a recent interview with British GQ, Joe finally clarified some things about his relationship with Taylor Swift. He said that he was not going to talk about his relationship with Taylor because;
“Someone’s private life is, by definition, private. No one is obliged to share their personal life.”
He also clarified that the posts about cactus on both their Instagram feeds were not intentional.
“No. I didn’t even think of that until I was in New York and someone else mentioned it. No, no [it wasn’t on purpose]! It wasn’t purposeful at all!”
When asked about what his favorite Taylor Swift song was, he replied aptly;
“I’m just not even going to go into that side of the world.”
Smart move. A majority of Taylor’s repertoire is songs about her exes. So any song he might name is a media frenzy waiting to happen.
Why We Adore Joe Alwyn Already?
