Joe Alwyn (Taylor Swift‘s fiancé) is in a WhatsApp group called the ‘tortured man club’ with Paul Mescal and Fleabag‘s hot priest Andrew Scott.

Alwyn and Mescal, of course, share a bond as they are successive leading men in Sally Rooney adaptations (Normal People and Conversations With Friends).

They met Scott two years ago, when filming a skit for RTE Does Comic Relief, and they all hit it off — hence the group.

But there’s more than just a bromance here — there’s a network of connections between the three men and three women: Taylor Swift, Mescal’s girlfriend musician Phoebe Bridgers, and Fleabag writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

The Phoebes are friends, and Waller-Bridge directed one of Bridgers’ music videos.

Grammy-winner Swift is close to Waller-Bridge, too; and was recently interviewed about her ambitions in film by Waller-Bridge’s fiancé, film director Martin McDonagh. All very cosy for the magnificent seven!

Swift and Alwyn, who split their time between the U.S. and London, have continued to keep their relationship very private amid engagement and marriage rumors over the course of the past year.

In September 2018, the Mary Queen of Scots actor first spoke about their decision to keep the relationship private in conversation with British Vogue.

‘I’m aware people want to know about that side of things. I think we have been successfully very private and that has now sunk in for people…but I really prefer to talk about work,’ he shared.

And months later he continued to defend to Esquire why they’ve chosen not to go more public with their relationship.

‘I didn’t seek out advice on that,’ he said when asked about whether or not he had received advice about navigating a high profile relationship.

‘…Because I know what I feel about it. I think there’s a very clear line as to what somebody should share, or feel like they have to share, and what they don’t want to and shouldn’t have to.’

By March 2019 engagement rumors began to swirl after an insider told Us Weekly that the singer was all in on Joe.

‘Taylor’s friends are all talking about a proposal and how she really wants to marry Joe. He’s her dream guy.’

In an August 2019 interview with The Guardian Taylor maintained that she doesn’t share more because the relationship ‘isn’t up for discussion.’

‘I’ve learned that if I do, people think it’s up for discussion, and our relationship isn’t up for discussion,’ she said, adding that it’s a ‘boundary’ she’s set for herself that keeps her life ‘feeling manageable.’

But she publicly thanked him while accepting the Grammy for Album Of The Year, last year, and just two months later it was reported that they had ‘discussed future plans,’ and that she can ‘see herself marrying Joe one day,’ according to Entertainment Tonight.

Most recently Joe told WSJ Magazine in April: ‘If I had a pound for every time I think I’ve been told I’ve been engaged, then I’d have a lot of pound coins. I mean, the truth is, if the answer was yes, I wouldn’t say, and if the answer was no, I wouldn’t say.’
