Joe Alwyn has opened up for the first time about his split from Taylor Swift.

The actor broke his silence about his breakup with the pop superstar in an interview with The Sunday Times Style Magazine.

Alwyn, who dated Swift for six years until April 2023, called their relationship "long, loving" and "fully committed".

Swift has not yet publicly commented on the breakup, but many believe her latest album, The Tortured Poets Department, was inspired by the split.

When asked if he's listened to his ex-girlfriend's new album, Alwyn cryptically told the Times, "In thinking on what I was going to say, I would think and hope that anyone and everyone can empathise. ... This isn't a direct answer to your question, but just thinking about what I want to talk about."

He continued, "I would hope that anyone and everyone can empathise and understand the difficulties that come with the end of a long, loving, fully committed relationship of over six and a half years. That is a hard thing to navigate."

Alwyn and Swift broke up around the time the pop star launched her record-breaking The Eras Tour in North America.

The Conversations With Friends actor reflected on the aftermath of the split, saying, "What is unusual and abnormal in this situation is that, one week later, it's suddenly in the public domain and the outside world is able to weigh in."

Alwyn, who stars in the upcoming Kinds of Kindness, noted that he and Swift agreed to "keep the more private details of our relationship private".

He added, "It was never something to commodify and I see no reason to change that now."

Swift started dating Kansas City Chiefs footballer Travis Kelce last summer.
