Cape Town – Joe Alwyn has defended his reasons for keeping his relationship with Taylor Swift private and it totally makes sense! 

In a new interview with Mr. Porter’s The Journal, the Mary Queen of Scots actor noted that he doesn’t think it is strange to keep his love life out of the spotlight at all.

“I don’t think more than anyone else. I don’t think anyone you meet on the streets would just spill their guts out to you, therefore why should I?” Joe explained. “And then that is defined as being ‘strangely private’. Fine. But I don’t think it is. I think it’s normal.”

Joe, 27, and Taylor, 29, first sparked dating rumours in May 2017 after it was revealed the Shake It hitmaker was secretly visiting the actor in London.
