Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn have been trying their best in keeping their relationship private, but months of speculation about the couple’s relationship status has caused Joe Alwyn to now speak up. Now he is speaking on the rumors that the two are set to be hitched.
In a recent interview with WSJ. Magazine, Joe Alwyn talked about the couple’s engagement rumors. The British actor told the outlet, “If I had a pound for every time I think I’ve been told I’ve been engaged, then I’d have a lot of pound coins. I mean, the truth is, if the answer was yes, I wouldn’t say, and if the answer was no, I wouldn’t say.”
Joe was visibly modest while addressing those rumors but he was very clear as to why he kept their relationship private. He shared, “We live in a culture that people expect so much to be given. So that if you’re not posting all the time about what you’re doing, how you’re spending a day or how you made a breakfast, does that make you a recluse?”
Alwyn has also admitted that he would “like to feel slightly less guarded sometimes in interviews or in whatever kind of interactions,” his approach is “just a knee-jerk response to the culture we live in.”
Also in a recent interview with Elle, Alwyn talked about why he keeps his relationship private. He explained, “It’s not really [because I] want to be guarded and private, it’s more a response to something else. We live in a culture that is so increasingly intrusive. The more you give and frankly, even if you don’t give it, something will be taken.”
On the other hand, Taylor Swift has always been pretty much open about her previous relationships but when it comes to Joe, she seems to be equally tight-lipped about her romance. Though she has shared a few details in her songs, including “Gorgeous” and “Call It What You Want.”
The couple has also collaborated on a number of songs on her recent albums Folklore and Evermore. They have been dating since 2016, but it doesn’t seem like wedding bells are looming… for now.
