Many people are interested in hearing about Joe Alwyn’s relationship with Taylor Swift, but he says he doesn’t “know how best to talk about it.”
The actor stated in an interview with The Guardian that when it comes to their love, “It’s just not for other people. And I don’t say that with aggression.”
“I mean, I’m aware of people’s … of that size of interest, and that world existing,” “The Favourite” star said. “It’s just not something I particularly care about, or have much interest in feeding, I guess, because the more it’s fed, the more you are opening a gate for intrusion.”
The couple is said to have met in 2016 and had been together for a long time.
Alwyn and Swift have remained tight-lipped about their relationship.
“I think that’s just my response to a culture that has this increasing expectation that everything is going to be given,” Alwyn told The Guardian.
“If you don’t post about the way you make your coffee in the morning, or if you don’t let someone take a picture when you walk out of your front door, is that being private?,” he said. “I don’t know if it is. So I just don’t really feed that.”
Besides, Alwyn said, “There are more interesting things to talk about and I just think it feeds into a weird part of the culture that I’m not really interested in being a part of.”
He was willing to talk about their recent Grammy triumph, for example.
Using the moniker William Bowery, he worked on two tracks from Taylor Swift’s album “Folklore,” “Betty” and “Exile.”
“That was a surreal bonus of lockdown,” Alwyn said.
