Taylor Swift has been dating Joe Alwyn since 2016, and while they’ve been together for six years, the couple has remained private about everything surrounding their relationship.
While the couple’s relationship is strictly off-limits when it comes to the press, Swift and Alwyn have briefly mentioned each other in interviews throughout the years, showing the respect and love they still have for each other after all this time.
They’ve even written songs together. Alwyn contributed to both 2020’s Folklore and its sister album Evermore under his literary-leaning pen name — co-writing the Bon Iver duet “Exile” and producing six other songs on the former, as well as penning “Champagne Problems,” The National-assisted “Coney Island” and second Justin Vernon collab “Evermore” on the latter.
In fact, thanks to his songwriting credit on Folklore, the actor even took home his own Grammy after Swift’s surprise pandemic studio set won album of the year at the 2021 Grammy Awards. These days, Alwyn is focused on his primary occupation onscreen while Swift remains in the process of re-recording her back catalog of albums.
In honor of Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn’s super-private, but super-loving relationship, we’ve compiled all the times the longtime couple has talked about each other in the press, documentaries and beyond — from Swift admitting to fans that “Gorgeous” is about her boyfriend and confirming that he is, in fact, Folklore co-writer William Bowery to Alwyn sharing how he feels about love songs dedicated to him.
