Taylor Swift has been mostly flying under the radar since her very public relationship ended with 36-year-old actor Tom Hiddleston. Today, though, The Sun reports that Taylor has moved on with yet another British actor.
The tabloid reports that Taylor has been secretly dating 26-year-old Joe Alwyn. While you might not be all too familiar with Joe, that might be because his career is relatively just starting. Last year, he had his first breakout role as the star of Ang Lee’s film Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.
What’s more, The Sun quoted a source — so take all of this with a hefty grain of salt — who said that Taylor has been “spending days at a time in London disguising herself wearing a wig in a bid to keep the romance under wraps.” So, could it be that the duo has actually been spotted out and about without the public’s knowledge? It’s not impossible. The source added that “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.”
With the same sandy blonde locks and similar coloring, the pair actually look quite similar. Though, that said, with Taylor’s rumored disguises, perhaps they look quite different on their outings in London. That same source told The Sun, “She’s been walking around with Joe in London using disguises, like scarves and hats, to keep her identity under wraps. Nobody has a clue they’ve been walked past a music superstar – not even her new neighbors.”
Though it’s unclear when the pair first met, Joe was actually in attendance at the 2016 Met Gala. Yes, that’s the same Met Gala that Taylor herself hosted. How’s that for coming full-circle?
With little social media presence to speak of, it seems as though Joe might be just the under-the-radar relationship that Taylor needs right now. So, sorry to all of you super-sleuths: The duo is definitely not making it easy for any of us!
