It was just two weeks ago that the dynamic duo lit up the room at the 2020 Golden Globes.
Not only did the Lover singer steal the show with her larger-than-life floral gown by Etro and her nomination, but she and the actor were the definition of relationship goals that night. E! News insiders noticed how happy they were at the annual event, as they sat closely together and couldn't stop smiling.
And it appears the couple enjoyed an even more magical time together just days prior to the star-studded ceremony.
For New Year's Eve, the famous couple took a romantic getaway to the Maldives, where they spent some time on the beach, listened to live music and had a low-key night.
According to Matthew Crane, who performed in front of the celebrity pair during the holiday (and is a major Swiftie!) shared his special experience with E! News.
Taylor Swift, 30, and boyfriend Joe Alwyn, 28, made sure to have a romantic entrance into 2020. The couple took a New Year’s trip to the remote and gorgeous Maldive Islands in the Indian Ocean, 27-year-old British singer Matthew Crane told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. Matthew was performing at a resort in the Maldives on Dec. 31, when Taylor and Joe arrived by boat and attended his show. He initially posted about it on his Instagram account, calling them “friendly and kind.” But we also spoke to Matthew EXCLUSIVELY and he gave HollywoodLife.com more details about the magical night and how in love his famous audience members looked.
“I was hired by an agency to perform at the resort on New Year’s Eve, and Taylor and Joe were staying at the resort as guests. It was by chance that I met them and sung to them. I was singing on the beach (on the sand overlooking the sunset) and the guests would arrive by boat as I was singing. Taylor, Joe and her friends arrived last,” he told us. “Taylor and Joe were there with their friends having a private holiday. I performed for 1 hour and 45 minutes overall. Taylor, Joe and her friends were there for the last 40 minutes of my set. Taylor and Joe both said, ‘You seriously have an amazing, powerful voice, keep going, you will go far.’ They both gave me a standing ovation when I sung my last song, ‘Let Me Try Again’ by Frank Sinatra. They were so kind and so sweet,” Matthew revealed.
“They were holding hands, laughing, chatting, sometimes looked at each other lovingly and appeared very much in love. They were sitting at a bench table while I was singing, and they were eating, drinking and chatting. Taylor was wearing a beautiful sequin knee-length black dress which covered her arms, with no shoes. Joe was wearing a white shirt and dark navy cotton trousers/pants”, he continued. “I was there when Taylor and Joe were present as the countdown to midnight happened. There were fireworks in the distance. Taylor, Joe and her friends were upstairs at the VIP rooftop bar, dancing and enjoying the night until 1am in the morning when they left. Taylor and Joe were walking around the main event at South Beach where they were enjoying the different delicacies and cuisines that were in different stalls, including Thai, English, Italian and French food”.
Taylor Swift is well-known for writing songs about her past relationships. In fact, she has quite a long list of ex-boyfriends who have broken her heart, and then inspired her to make music.
She's famously dated big names like Calvin Harris, Harry Styles, Tom Hiddleston (for a hot minute), and Joe Jonas. But for the last few years, she's been dating a man named Joe Alwyn.
Who is Joe Alwyn? While you may not recognize his name, he's more than just Taylor Swift's beau. And in her new upcoming documentary Miss Americana, not only does Swift address her life over the past few years, but we get a glimpse into her relationship.
Though Alwyn doesn't appear in the trailer, we got a brief sneak peak as Swift hugged someone after her 2019 VMA performance. Since Alwyn usually wears a hat like the one pictured below, it makes sense that the man pictured is him. And hopefully, that means we can learn more about Swift and Alwyn's relationship.
The documentary is set to hit select theaters and Netflix on January 31. In the mean time, who is Joe Alwyn? It seems like he's been the one guy so far that she's held on to.
Well, enough with the suspense! Here are all the details about Joe Alwyn, his relationship with Taylor Swift, and if he appears in Miss Americana.
His first major role came in 2016 when he was cast in the movie Billy Lyn’s Long Halftime Walk, which was directed by Ang Lee. In this film, he played along actors like Kristen Stewart, Vin Diesel, Chris Tucker, and Steve Martin.
In 2017, he appeared in the movie The Sense of an Ending, which included actors Jim Broadbent, Harriet Walter, and Charlotte Rampling. In 2018, he appeared in The Favourite alongside Emma Stone, who just so happens to be good friends with Taylor Swift!
While Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn packed on the PDA at the 2019 BAFTAs, it looks like that won’t be the case this year. Joe — who is a presenter at the awards show — stepped out solo on the red carpet at the event on Sunday, February 2.
That doesn’t mean they aren’t going strong, though. For the Golden Globes afterparty on January 5, Taylor, 30, and Joe, 28, were photographed getting cozy. “They were acting like loved-up teenagers, but in a respectful way,” a source exclusively told Life & Style at the time. “I saw Taylor put her hand on Joe’s lap and look lovingly into his eyes and he had his arm around her at one point. It’s obvious he adores her.”
The pop star feels the same way. “You can tell Taylor doesn’t feel the need to put on an act when she’s with Joe,” the onlooker added. “She’s incredibly relaxed around him.”
Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn, the once super-private couple, are totally fine being a little more public in 2020. They started the year sitting next to each other at the Golden Globes and showing mild PDA during their first public date. Then last night, at the NME Awards in London, they were at it again.
They sat next to each other, and an audience member, Sophie, got a video of them kissing during the show. Swift pulled Alwyn in for the big moment during the broadcast:
They also hugged when Swift was announced the winner of Best Solo Act, and Swift was generally pretty affectionate with her British boyfriend throughout the ceremony. They've been together for three years at this point, and people know they're dating, so why hide it?
