An surprising shock. Joe Alwyn defined that he doesn’t usually take into consideration girlfriend Taylor Swift‘s fame, so he certainly didn’t anticipate their enjoyable musical collaboration to win a Grammy Award.
“That was a surreal bonus of lockdown. That’s an understatement,” the British actor, 31, informed The Guardian in an interview revealed Saturday, April 30. “It wasn’t like, ’It’s five o’clock, it’s time to try and write a song together.’ It came about from messing around on a piano, and singing badly, then being overheard, and being, like, ‘Let’s see what happens if we get to the end of it together.’”
Alwyn, credited as William Bowery, cowrote “Exile” and “Betty” for Swift’s Folklore, launched in July 2020, which received the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in March 2021. He also cowrote “Champagne Problems,” “Coney Island” and the title monitor of Evermore, which she launched in December 2020.
“I mean fun is such a stupid word, but it was a lot of fun,” he continued. “And it was never a work thing, or a ‘Let’s try and do this because we’re going to put this out’ thing. It was just like baking sourdough in lockdown. The Grammy was obviously this ridiculous bonus.”
The Grammy winner, who mentioned he doesn’t plan to pen any more hits, is concentrated on performing. He is ready to star within the Hulu collection Conversations With Friends, an adaptation of the Sally Rooney novel, in addition to The Stars at Noon, a movie set to debut at Cannes Film Festival later this 12 months. He’d a lot quite discuss his fictional characters’ private lives than his personal.
Alwyn revealed that he doesn’t philosophize an excessive amount of about his life because the boyfriend of an iconic pop star. “It’s not something I think about, unless I’m in situations like this, and someone says, ‘What’s it like?’ and I have to think about what to say about it,” he informed The Guardian. “It’s just not for other people and I don’t say that with aggression.”
He as soon as once more emphasised that their relationship is non-public. Since Alwyn and Swift received collectively in 2016, the 2 have stored their romance quiet, a choice the “All Too Well” singer spoke about in her 2020 Netflix documentary, Miss Americana.
“I was falling in love with someone who had a wonderfully normal, balanced life,” she mentioned within the movie. “We decided together we wanted our relationship to be private. I was happy. But I wasn’t happy in the way I was trained to be happy. It was happiness without anyone else’s input. We were just happy.”
The pair hardly ever make public appearances, and so they are inclined to keep away from photographers once they do. The couple usually attend the identical premieres and awards reveals to assist one another, however they by no means stroll the pink carpet collectively. Alwyn informed The Guardian that he isn’t snug drawing consideration to their romance.
“I don’t know how best to talk about it. I mean, I’m aware of people’s … of that size of interest, and that world existing. It’s just not something I particularly care about, or have much interest in feeding, I guess, because the more it’s fed, the more you are opening a gate for intrusion,” he mentioned. “I think that’s just my response to a culture that has this increasing expectation that everything is going to be given. If you don’t post about the way you make your coffee in the morning, or if you don’t let someone take a picture when you walk out of your front door, is that being private? I don’t know if it is. So I just don’t really feed that.”
