So you know how literally everyone and their mother has been speculating that Taylor Swift and her longtime actor boyfriend Joe Alwyn are engaged? Get this: Joe took the liberty to finally address all of those rumors in an interview with WSJ. Magazine and he…kept things kinda coy, which isn’t surprising!
“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,” said Joe. “I mean, the truth is, if the answer was yes, I wouldn’t say, and if the answer was no, I wouldn’t say.”
The non-answer answer is a wee bit disappointing for Joe and Taylor’s fans hoping for a happily ever after that involves a wedding, but TBH, it’s zero percent surprising. I mean, WSJ even titled its story on him “Joe Alwyn Is Hollywood’s Most Private Leading Man.” The accuracy!
Joe and Taylor have been incredibly private about their relationship, and fans really can’t be too salty about them wanting to keep their romance under wraps. In the same interview, Joe said he feels like “we live in a culture that people expect so much to be given” and keeping his private matters close to home is his “knee-jerk response” to that. “If you give it to them, it just opens the door,” he said.
Taylor and Joe have been together since 2016, and even though T. Swift has historically been suuuper open about all the boys she’s ever loved (will I ever get over that random Tom Hiddleston era???), she changed things up with Joe. Plus or minus a few lil mentions in songs and wearing a “J” necklace, Taylor has also been mostly mum about their ‘ship these last six years.
Recently though, the couple made a rare public appearance during the 2022 Oscars for an awards show pre-party. They didn’t take any pics, but a source told E! News that “Taylor was introducing Joe to many people around her” and “she looked smitten and proud to be there with him.”
Awww. We’re happy so long as they’re happy!
