NEWS… BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT
Taylor Swift is still finding time to be her other half Joe Alwyn’s biggest supporter by proudly showing off her love of his show Conversations With Friends.
The new BBC Three series, based on Sally Rooney’s novel of the same name, came to screens on Sunday and many fans have already binge-watched the whole thing.
But someone else who’s a fan is megastar Swift, 32, who some will know has a major connection to the programme.
Her boyfriend Alwyn, 31, stars as actor Nick, one of the main four characters in the adaptation.
In the series, he conducts a risky affair with student Frances (Alison Oliver), whose perspective the story is told from.
He’s married to writer Melissa (Jemima Kirke), with it clear early on that the pair have a very complicated relationship.
While the series itself has received some mixed reviews, Swift gave an incredibly positive overview, labelling it ‘phenomenal.’
Taking to her Instagram stories, she shared a screenshot of an article from Time Magazine, which said the drama ‘breathes fresh life into Sally Rooney’s best novel.’
Adding to the compliments, she added: ‘Can confirm it’s phenomenal.’
The pair have kept their relationship pretty private, having only stepped out together on a small number of occasions.
But Swift has previously shared how smitten she is with her Brit boyfriend.
‘I was falling in love with someone who had a wonderfully normal, balanced life. We decided together we wanted our relationship to be private,’ she said.
‘I was happy. But I wasn’t happy in the way I was trained to be happy. It was happiness without anyone else’s input. We were just happy,’ the Cruel Summer singer shared in her 2020 documentary Miss Americana.

It comes after Alwyn’s co-star Oliver shared that his pop star girlfriend was ‘totally cool’ with the raunchy sex scenes featured in the drama.
She admitted to The Times that while it was surreal starring opposite Alwyn, since she used to play Swift’s songs on guitar growing up, she ‘understands’ the scenes are ‘part of Joe’s job, all part of the story’, which were shot during a month of filming in Croatia last September.
Conversations With Friends can be streamed in full on BBC iPlayer now.
