Joe Alwyn has finally opened up about his breakup with Taylor Swift, revealing that he feels “good” about the separation but admits there were challenges.

Fans have been abuzz on social media since Alwyn, whose 2023 split with the pop superstar was widely speculated upon, shared his perspective for the first time. The breakup fueled in-depth analyses of Swift’s latest album, The Tortured Poets Department.

In an interview with The Times of London, Alwyn said, “I would think and hope that anyone and everyone can empathize and understand the difficulties that come with the end of a long, loving, fully committed relationship of over six and a half years.”

Despite Swift’s new relationship with NFL star Travis Kelce, Alwyn described navigating the breakup as “a hard thing.”

The actor, known for his role in The Favourite, is believed to have inspired several of Swift's songs, particularly 2017’s “Dress,” which seemingly chronicles their first meeting at the 2016 Met Gala. Their relationship became official in 2017.

Alwyn explained his reluctance to discuss the split, stating it was “abnormal” to have something “very real suddenly thrown into a very unreal space — tabloids, social media, press, where it is then dissected, speculated on, pulled out of shape beyond recognition.”

Swift, who often shares details of her romantic life through her music, achieved monumental success with Poets, her first album post-breakup. The album set new streaming records, and some fans speculated that songs like “Fresh Out the Slammer” were about her time with Alwyn.

Alwyn emphasized that their decision to separate was mutual and that they chose to keep their reasons private. “It was never something to commodify and I see no reason to change that now,” he told The Times. “And, look, this is also a little over a year ago now and I feel fortunate to be in a really great place in my life, professionally and personally. I feel really good.”

He concluded, “There is always going to be a gap between what is known and what is said. I have made my peace with that.”
