Joe Alwyn has been dating Taylor Swift since 2016 but, who is the ‘Lover' star’s boyfriend? Here’s everything we know, from his job to his net worth.
Despite their low-key relationship, the loved-up pair have publicly supported one another's careers, as well as even written Grammy Award-winning songs together for the albums, 'Folklore' and 'Evermore' – talk about a power couple!
So, who is Joe Alwyn; how old is he and what does he do?
Here’s everything we know about Taylor's boyfriend who she's rumoured to be engaged to…
Joe is a British actor, who made his acting debut in war drama, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, in 2016.
He's also starred in movies The Favourite and Mary Queen of Scots, which both hit theatres in 2018.
Since then, he has landed numerous roles in historical films as well as making a brief appearance in his girlfriend’s documentary, Miss Americana.
Joe's most recent role is as Nick in the hotly-anticipated television adaption of Sally Rooney's novel Conversations with Friends, which arrived on Hulu and BBC Three on May 15.
The Irish drama is the follow-up limited series to Normal People, another TV mega-hit inspired by Rooney's work that took the internet by storm in 2020.
Joe has starred in some pretty big productions, mostly films, and is now branching out into a few more TV series.
Here's what he's been in so far:
Joe was born on February 21, 1991, which makes him 31 years old.
Taylor is just two years older than her British beau.
Joe was born and grew up in North London, where he and girlfriend Taylor now spend a lot of their down time.
Tay even has a song about her love's hometown, 'London Boy', but you don't need us to tell you about that!
It's thought Joe and Taylor met at the 2016 MET Gala, and fans have matched the lyrics in her song ‘Dress’ to that evening.
The lyrics include: “Flashback to when you met me, your buzzed cut and my hair bleached,” which seemingly refers to her bleach blonde locks and his shaven hair from that night.
In May 2017 it was reported that the couple had been seeing each other for months, and have kept it very lowkey since then.
Joe is 6 foot 1.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Joe is worth around $4million (£3.2million).
He's raked in an impressive fortune thanks to his roles on some massive movies.
Taylor and Joe are not engaged or married, as far as we know! The couple first sparked engagement rumours back in 2019 after she shared a cryptic Instagram caption along with a photo from her Vogue shoot, which saw the songstress ballet dancing.
It read: “My heart has been borrowed and yours has been blue. All’s well that ends well, to end up with you,” which are lyrics from her track ‘Lover’.
Up-close in the snap, there’s a string tied around her ring finger - leading fans to think she was going to tie the knot - which unsurprisingly caused Swifties to freak out over the prospect of Tay being engaged.
A fan posted: “Wait………… my hearts been borrowed and yours has been blue….. something borrowed and something blue…… ma’am [sic],” which Taylor then ended up liking on her Tumblr page, encouraging Swifties to get even more excited!
However, Taylor and Joe have never publicly addressed the ongoing engagement and wedding rumours, understandably.
