Taylor Swift has dated a lot of guys – Tom Hiddleston, Calvin Harris and Harry Styles, just to name a few. Now she’s dating Joe Alwyn, a seemingly normal uni grad. So why should we care about her latest man? Maybe because he’s a fit actor from London, who went to Bristol uni, or maybe because she’s sparked ENGAGEMENT rumours with Joe Alwyn. He might be the one for Taylor!!! So, who is Joe Alwyn?

Here is all about Joe Alwyn, Taylor Swift’s latest boyfriend, who’s getting a lot of people talking.

He’s 26, and still lives at home

He was born in Crouch End, London and is thought to still live with his parents.

This is despite the fact he’s a rising Hollywood actor, and is dating a global superstar in Taylor Swift.

He studied at University of Bristol, and in London

The actor graduated from the National Youth Theatre before studying at the University of Bristol and London’s Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.

Since then, he’s played the title role in Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, which came out last year, and in The Sense of Ending.

His next screen rolls will be Keepers – a psychological thriller with Gerard Butler, and The Favourite, featuring Oscar winner Emma Stone.

He’s pretty well travelled, he’s even been to the Sahara Desert

His Instagram is pretty exotic looking, but he hardly ever tags locations – which is frustrating for the stalkers.

He has checked in at Paris, Argentina, Japan and The Sahara though, if the flags in all his captions are anything to go by.

Him and Taylor don’t give much away

There is almost no evidence of them on each other’s social media.

HOWEVER – here are pictures they both have posted in front of the same cactus, at the same time.

Speaking to GQ about the matching photos, he said: “No. I didn’t even think of [them matching] until I was in New York and someone else mentioned it. It wasn’t purposeful at all!”

When him and Taylor are sited together though, the entire media go into frenzy. They are desperate to picture the pair on “date night”.

He’s a complete enigma online, which Taylor probably loves

We all know she lives for the drama, so dating someone who has tweeted 65 times and has 25 Instagram posts that never show his face probably makes her so happy.

They are apparently “the real deal”

In May, the Sun revealed that the pair had been dating for “a few months” but had chosen to keep their romance secret.

A source told the Sun: “Taylor and Joe are the real deal, this is a very serious relationship. But after what happened with Tom Hiddleston, they were determined to keep it quiet.”

Fans are convinced Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn are engaged!!!

In Taylor’s latest video for her single ME!, people are convinced Taylor is trying to tell us she’s engaged. When asked about the video, Taylor said: “Oh and there’s a secret in the video I’ve been keeping for months – let’s see who can guess it.”

In the video, Brendan Urie from Panic! At The Disco is playing her boyfriend. He presents her with an engagement ring. So yeah, everyone thinks she is getting married.

He’s got some pretty famous pals himself

He definitely doesn’t need Taylor’s circle – he’s already got famous friends. He’s only been tagged in two photos on Instagram – and both of them are posts from English actresses – who are both verified. Plus, he literally only follows verified accounts on Instagram.

And Gigi Hadid follows him – but that’s probs because of Taylor.

He does A LOT of photoshoots

He’s been pictured by Esquire and Hollywood Reporter to name a couple – probably because he’s really fit.

GQ labelled him as “Mr Taylor Swift”

I mean, Mr Taylor Swift is a pretty enviable title. He told GQ him and Taylor are secretive because “someone’s private life is, by definition, private. No one is obliged to share their personal life”.

He’s been named as one of the fastest rising young actors

In his own right, he’s made his own fame. He was named as one of the fastest rising young actors right now in an interview.
