In the past, the British actor left a red-carpet interview after politely and briefly answering one question about his girlfriend’s foray into American politics.
He has explained to both British Vogue and British GQ why he won’t talk about his love life. “Someone’s private life is by definition private,” he told British GQ. “No one is obliged to share their personal life.”
Okay, but how about a very innocent question about his girlfriend’s work? British GQ‘s Stuart McGurk dared to try one as his final question, asking Alwyn what his favorite Taylor Swift song was. Swift, of course, has written several love songs that could be about him, so there are options.
Alwyn laughed in response. “I’m just not even going to go into that side of the world,” he said. Disappointing, sure, but is anyone surprised he wouldn’t?
