Taylor Swift is reportedly dating British actor Joe Alwyn, an actor who you probably haven’t heard of. Supposedly, the pair have been spending time in London together for the past three months while Swift has been careful stay out of the public eye.
The fun part of the story is really that Swift has apparently been moving about in London, unseen thanks to a selection of disguises. A chimney sweep, perhaps? A member of the Queen’s Guard? Nope, that’s Taylor Alison Swift.
Alwyn is probably best known for starring in Ang Lee’s Billy Flynn’s Long Halftime Walk alongside Kristen Stewart. He’ll be co-starring with Emma Stone’s The Favourite next year.
So Alwyn has a decent resume, but a pretty low profile. He currently has less than 4,000 followers on Twitter and isn’t verified yet. His social media presence is strictly business, although we can gather that he appreciates a good oil painting of a bird.

Now, there is reason to be suspicious of this alleged pairing springing up right now. Swift’s relationships with British actors, historically, tend to make their way into the news cycle at convenient times, like when Swift might like to direct attention away from what’s going down on Kim Kardashian’s Snapchat.
Swift has been keeping a very low profile lately, apart from occasionally Instagramming Apple Music screenshots of the 13 second mark of her BFFs’ new singles.
However, two high profile people in the Swiftosphere have been doing the exact opposite: nemesis Katy Perry and ex Harry Styles. Neither one is keen on addressing Swift directly, but she’s all anyone seems to want them to talk about.
Whatever the case, we hope Swift and Alwyn make plenty of time for romantic beachside strolls this summer.
