Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn have remained tight-lipped about their relationship status since the time they started dating in October 2016.
Recently, the couple sparked fresh engagement rumours as they attended pre-Oscars party in March.
However, the British actor finally put to rest all such speculations in a new interview with WSJ Magazine published on Wednesday.
Interestingly, Swift’s boyfriend has neither confirmed nor denied rumours about his engagement with You Belong With Me hit-maker.
“If I had a pound for every time, I think I have been told I have been engaged, then I would have a lot of pound coins,” said Alwyn.
“I mean, the truth is, if the answer was yes, I wouldn’t say, and if the answer was no, I wouldn’t say,” he told the publication.
Alwyn and Swift have always maintained a low-key relationship and the former explained why he wanted to keep his personal life out of the limelight.
“We live in a culture that people expect so much to be given. So that if you are not posting all the time about what you’re doing, how you’re spending a day or how you made a breakfast, does that make you a recluse?” he mentioned.
The Harriet actor confessed that, at times, he wanted to feel “slightly less guarded” in interviews but, then it is “just a knee-jerk response to the culture we live in.”
“If you give it to them, it just opens the door,” he concluded.
