It’s been over a year since they called it quits, but Joe Alwyn is finally opening up about his high-profile relationship with Taylor Swift. In a telling new interview, the British actor gets candid about the challenges of navigating a public breakup after over six years together.

While promoting his latest film, “Kinds of Kindness”, Alwyn sat down with The Sunday Times Style and opened up about his past relationship with Swift. When asked about her recent album “The Tortured Poets Department” – which fans theorize references their split – Alwyn chose his words carefully. “Anyone and everyone can empathise … This isn’t a direct answer to your question, but just thinking about what I want to talk about … I would hope that anyone and everyone can empathise and understand the difficulties that come with the end of a long, loving, fully committed relationship of over six and a half years.”

After more than six-and-a-half years together, Swift and Alwyn reportedly parted ways last April. Sources said the breakup was amicable, with one insider noting that their love had “simply run its course.” While the private pair kept most details under wraps during their relationship, going public with the split brought unforeseen challenges.

What is unusual and abnormal in this situation is that, one week later, it’s suddenly in the public domain and the outside world is able to weigh in,” Alwyn explained.

So you have something very real suddenly thrown into a very unreal space: tabloids, social media, press, where it is then dissected, speculated on, pulled out of shape beyond recognition,” he added. “And the truth is, to that last point, there is always going to be a gap between what is known and what is said.”

The 33-year-old actor also reflected on the challenges of maintaining privacy in such a high-profile relationship. From the beginning, Swift and Alwyn opted to keep their romance low-key. “It was never something to commodify and I see no reason to change that now,” Alwyn insisted.

Over a year on, it seems both parties have moved forward – Swift is now dating Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce. As for Alwyn, he says he’s in a “great place” both professionally and personally these days.
