Joe Alwyn claims that Taylor Swift doesn’t really have a private plane…?

Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn seen leaving Annabells Private Members Club

I’ve only seen Joe Alwyn in a few things, and the only time he was really memorable to me was in The Favourite. His part was small but he did a good job with it. It reminded me of the fact that if you’re a reasonably attractive posh-sounding white British guy, you basically can have a 50-year career doing costume dramas, various British TV shows and more. Even if Joe and Taylor Swift don’t last, Joe will always work and his career will be fine. I actually suspect – and I have no evidence to back this up – that Joe has probably turned down some projects here and there over the past two years because of Taylor. I’m not suggesting that he’s “on call” for Taylor, I just think he probably gets offered more stuff than we know and maybe he would just prefer to spend that time with Tay. We know that Taylor spends a lot of time in England with Joe, just as we know that Joe spends a lot of time at Taylor’s American homes (Nashville, LA and NYC). We also know that… Taylor has a private plane, and she uses that plane to take Joe around the world. But Joe says something different:

Joe Alwyn has no problem being Taylor Swift‘s “London Boy.” The 28-year-old actor revealed that he doesn’t mind “at all” being the subject of songs on his pop-star girlfriend’s latest album.

“No, not at all. No. It’s flattering,” he said when asked how it feels when Swift, 30, writes songs about him and their relationship in a recent interview with The Sunday Times.

As for the media attention on Alwyn and Swift’s relationship, the Favourite star told The Sunday Times that he simply doesn’t “pay attention to what I don’t want to pay attention to.”

“I turn everything else down on a dial. I don’t have any interest in tabloids. I know what I want to do, and that’s this, and that’s what I am doing,” he explained.

According to the interviewer, Joe feels that “99.9 percent of what the press write about them is false.” For example, he says that Taylor doesn’t really have a private jet that she uses to fly to him whenever she wants.

Except… Taylor really does have a private plane?!? She does! She probably has two planes. Her fans track her plane’s (planes’) movements and that’s how they know where she is almost all of the time. I mean, maybe Joe is splitting hairs here – maybe he’s saying that he and Taylor aren’t constantly joy-riding around in her private plane, love-touring the world. But they absolutely travel together all the time. With her cats!! As for the rest of it… I wonder if Joe is just super-boring? Or do still waters run deep? I can’t decide.

    Boring as dry white bread.

  2. Mousy says:

    Yeah this is a case of semantics – he didnt say she doesnt have a private plane per se but doesnt have one that she specifically uses just to fly him around – which, i dont think people even really accusing them of doing??

  3. Deedee says:

    He may be vanilla, but at least his head is screwed on right and he doesn’t let the tabloids or fans dictate his life.

    • Div says:

      Same vibe. He seems sincerely happy to be a character actor, a Jaime Bell type, and not trade off her name (or trade off her name much). Taylor seems like she probably needs someone who is willing to work around her schedule, and who isn’t anywhere close to being as big as her. And lbh, many famous men can’t deal (sexism) with having partners who are more famous which is why many women date non-famous men or men who are behind the scene/character actors/etc. So yeah, the pairing makes a lot of sense imo,

  4. Nicole says:

    She really does have a type doesn’t she? She appears to really dig the London posh boys.

  5. Lightpurple says:

    He has worked a lot in the past few years. Harriet, A Christmas Carol, The Favourite, Mary Queen of Scots, Boy Erased, Operation Finale. Small roles but quite a few of them in movies with prominent co-stars.

    • Lulu says:

      Solid career choices, he must have a good team advising him; start small-ish, show your work and work your way up the ladder.
      I was actually very impressed by him in Operation Finale.

  6. Tiffany says:

    So that’s still happening. Huh.

  7. Div says:

    It’s not a direct quote…author may have by accident, wrongly characterized the comment. He might have said “she doesn’t fly her private plane all the time just to see me” and I could see that instead written as “she doesn’t have a private plane that she takes to see him.” Also, he could have misspoken in the same manner, or Taylor charters private planes but doesn’t actually own them (stans are often wrong).

    • lucy2 says:

      That’s how I took it too.

    • Allz says:

      Taylor definitely owns her jet though. The seats have her initials TS engraved in them, in pictures she has previously posted. But I took it as meant he probably doesn’t use her plane much.

  8. Stef says:

    Im just going to put my tin foil hat and from my investigation lol in the gaylor community, they have said that his contract with taylor has been extended two more years because hasn’t gotten as much roles as they getting hoping for. This benefiting both of them.

    • BingeCreating says:


      not till money & heteronormativity are unlinked will these contract relationships continue. very sad the public falls for it, but it’s always been that way.

  9. Heather says:

    Meh – I am pretty ambivalent about both of them.

  10. Daisy says:

    He’s really unremarkable, isn’t he… but he’ll be successful enough to land plenty of supporting roles. Also he looks like he could be Taylor’s brother and I can’t get pass this.

  11. Millie says:

    He doesn’t pay attention to tabloids but feels confident asserting that 99.9% of what they say about him is wrong. Ok.

  12. SamC says:

    Don’t forget her RI house…site of all those epic Taymerica bashes!

  13. fatladysinging says:

    This dude seems chill. And I’m feelin’ his single-button suit.

  14. JulieCarr says:

    He was really good in Boy Erased, in a small, unpleasant role I’d bet a lot of his peers wouldn’t have been game to take on.

    I don’t think he has that thing that makes an actor a star, but he definitely has enough talent for a steady career.

    As for the plane thing, I think he’s just disputing the idea that Swift regularly sends over an empty jet to pick him up. I’m pretty sure he flies commercial whenever he’s not travelling with her.

  15. Kath says:

    I don’t know – I think it’s cool that he doesn’t feel like his masculinity is being threatened by having a successful girlfriend. Ignoring the tabloids and continuing to build his own career in small, niche roles is also smart. He doesn’t do it for me personally (!), but he seems like a pretty mature, level-headed guy.

  16. Amelie says:

    Omg can someone please ask Joe about his girlfriend’s starring role in Cats??! Hahaha
