Taylor Swift's BF Joe Alwyn Speaks About Their Relationship

For the very first time, actor Joe Alwyn has confirmed his relationship with Taylor Swift.

Speaking to British Vogue while promoting his upcoming film The Favorite -- which co-stars Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone, Olivia Colman and Nicholas Hoult and has already been generating Oscar buzz for next year -- the actor spoke of his relationship with the pop star.

“I’m aware people want to know about that side of things,” Joe said. “I think we have been successfully very private and that has now sunk in for people… but I really prefer to talk about work.”

After a string of very high profile romances, Taylor retreated from the spotlight after splitting from actor Tom Hiddleston, who she began dating shortly after her split from Calvin Harris.

While Taylor has never spoken publicly about Joe -- her boyfriend since September 2016 -- their relationship has found its way into her music.

On Reputation's "Call It What You Want", Taylor sings: "Nobody's heard from me in months/I'm doin' better than I ever was".

She also sings about wanting to wear her partner's initial on a chain around her neck, "because he really knows [her]". Taylor has been spotted wearing a necklace with a 'J' on it many times since the pair began dating, and pointed it out specifically in the vertical video for "Delicate", another song about the early stages of her relationship with Joe.

Whether these two will ever open up to the press about their relationship remains to be seen, but with Joe starring in three Oscar-buzzy films this year -- he's also in Boy Erased and Mary Queen of Scots -- we may see Taylor walk the Oscar red carpet with her man next year.
