Joe Alwyn has resurfaced after six months of silence. But what has he been doing all this time?


  • It has been over six months since Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn parted ways.
  • While the pop diva has moved on and started a passionate relationship with Travis Kelce, little has been heard from her former partner.
  • Alwyn has been busy filming for upcoming movies and finally made a red-carpet appearance in early November.

The romantic life of one of the biggest pop divas of the last decade, Taylor Swift, is filled with drama, tragedy and passion. Swifties know how much soul and emotion the singer puts into her songs, almost every one of which is an account of the not-always-pleasant experiences of past relationships. Thanks to her songs, we didn't have to meet Joe Jonas, John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal to understand who they really are and what to expect when dating them.

Now, the singer's fans don't even need to do a complicated analysis of her songs to characterize her new relationship. Taylor Swift is once again very public about her romance, with NFL star Travis Kelce. It marks a sharp turnaround from the privacy of her relationships with Calvin Harris, Tom Hiddleston and, of course, Joe Alwyn, from whom she split in April this year after six years. Since then, little has been heard from the British actor until his red carpet appearance in November. What has the now bachelor been up to all this time?

Taylor's New Boyfriend Threw Shade at Alwyn

After starting a relationship with Joe Alwyn in 2016, the pair tried to keep their personal lives private. Although Alwyn is a well-known actor, he is not a high-profile A-lister, preferring to participate in indie projects and stay away from the overwhelming publicity. The fear that fame will ruin their relationship can be heard, for example, in Taylor's 2020 song 'Peace.'

However, speaking to the Wall Street Journal, her new beau, Travis Kelce, noted that while he's not used to this kind of exposure, he's happy to be with Taylor and not running away from it.

'The scrutiny she gets, how much she has a magnifying glass on her, every single day, paparazzi outside her house, outside every restaurant she goes to, after every flight she gets off, and she's just living, enjoying life. When she acts like that, I better not be the one acting all strange,' he shared. Naturally, many fans thought it was a dig at Joe!

What Taylor's Ex Is up to Since the Split

Whether or not Alwyn actually acted 'strange', he continued to keep things private after the split. The actor didn't make a public appearance until May, when he attended Celine's star-studded dinner during the Cannes Film Festival.

Since then, Alwyn has been completely out of the public eye for six months. On November 15, he arrived on the red carpet at the Royal Opera House in London for the GQ Men of the Year Awards.

During these six months, Alvin clearly tried to avoid focusing on the painful breakup and was head over heels in his work. From March to April, he was in Hungary and Italy starring in Brady Corbet's upcoming drama film The Brutalist.

At the beginning of September, he broke the silence by publishing on Instagram photos from his travels and from his childhood, as well as a clip from a Bon Iver concert.

Since November 8, the actor has been busy with a new movie, Hamlet, in which Alwyn will play Ophelia's brother Laertes. In addition, the upcoming movie And, directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, is being prepared for release, so we should definitely expect to see the actor on the red carpet soon!

As for his personal life, unlike his ex-girlfriend who has moved on, Joe Alwyn continues to stay out of the public eye. He is rumored to be dating his The Brutalist co-star, 25-year-old actress Emma Laird, but we will have to wait for confirmation.
