Alwyn and Swift, who have been dating since 2016, have been unusually protective about their relationship and have kept much of it private.
Joe Alwyn and Taylor Swift have been dating since 2016, but they’ve kept a lot of their romance under wraps for good reason.
“It’s not really (because I) want to be guarded and private, it’s more a replies to something else,” Alwyn told Elle UK in a recent interview. “It’s not really (because I) want to be guarded and private, it’s more an answers to something else,” he said.
“We live in an increasingly intrusive culture… Something will be stolen from you the more you give — and really, even if you don’t give it,” he continued.
Alwyn will play a couple in an open relationship in Hulu’s upcoming adaptation of Sally Rooney’s debut novel “Conversations with Friends.”
It’s unusual for Alwyn and Swift to make public comments about one another, let alone appear together in public, but last month, Deadline reported that the 31-year-old actor was asked if he has ever discussed an open relationship with Swift, to which he replied, “I think people can do what makes them happy.” “It’s apparent that I’m content in a monogamous relationship.”
Swift, 32, mentioned Alwyn last year when she said he helped her find her political voice when she decided to speak out before the 2018 midterm election and start taking a political stance, something she had previously avoided.
“As a country artist, I was always told it’s better to stay out of politics,” he wrote in an email interview with Vanity Fair (politics). The Trump presidency compelled me to dive in and learn.”
“I found myself discussing about government, the presidency, and policy with my partner (actor Joe Alwyn),” she explained, “who backed me in speaking up.” “I started talking about politics with my family and friends and learning as much as I could about where I stood.” I’m happy to have overcome my fears and doubts, and to endorse and support leadership that will help us move past this contentious and tragic period.”
Swift made another rare revelation about Alwyn in a 2020 interview with Zane Lowe, talking up about one of the couple’s common interests: music.
“Joe and I are big fans of sad songs,” Swift told Lowe. “Music has always brought us together… we write the saddest songs.” What can I say, we really adore sad songs.”
Under the pseudonym William Bowery, the actor even helped co-write several of the songs on Swift’s albums “Folklore” and “Evermore,” which she confirmed in the Disney+ film “Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions.”
Taylor Swift’s net worth and assets
Swift’s net worth is estimated to be $550 million in 2021 by Forbes, based on her songs, products, concerts, and advertising. She was in the top three of Forbes’ Top-Earning Women in Music list from 2011 to 2020, leading it in 2016 and 2019.
With $170 million in 2016, she was the highest-paid celebrity of the year, an achievement acknowledged by Guinness World Records as the highest yearly earnings ever for a female musician, which she surpassed in 2019 with $185 million. Swift was also the highest-paid female artist of the decade, with $825 million in earnings.
Swift has put $84 million into a real estate portfolio. For example, in 2015, she paid $25 million for the Samuel Goldwyn Estate in Beverly Hills, which she has subsequently restored to its former state and now houses Swift’s home studio, Kitty Committee, where she produced songs for Folklore.
She bought the Holiday House, a seaside estate in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, in 2013. In 2015, Gina Raimondo, then-Governor of Rhode Island, proposed the “Taylor Swift tax,” a statewide property tax on second houses valued more over $1 million.
In New York City, she has a $19.95 million duplex penthouse, a $18 million four-story townhouse, and a $9.75 million apartment on a single block in Tribeca, all of which she purchased in 2014, 2017 and 2018.
