The proud boyfriend made sure to praise his girlfriend for taking a political stance and encouraging her fans to vote! Usually, Joe Alwyn does not open up about Taylor Swift during interviews, but this time around, he gave her props for finally making her political beliefs known.
While at the BFI London Film Festival promoting his film, The Favourite, Joe told a reporter that ‘I think it’s important [that she talked politics so openly].’
While it may seem like he said very little, the actor usually remains completely private about his relationship with the superstar, which is why his praising comment means a lot.
As you may be aware, Swift has been criticized in the past for not talking about her political views, but all that changed a couple of weeks ago!
On October 7, the singer took to Instagram to post a long message, explaining why she supports the Democrat candidates for Tennessee’s Senate and House of Representatives positions and encouraged her followers to go vote in the midterm elections.
‘I always have and will always cast my vote based on which candidate will both protect and fight for human rights I believe we all deserve in this country,’ Taylor wrote.
‘I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation is WRONG. I believe that the systematic racism we still see towards people of color’s terrifying, sickening and prevalent. I can’t vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for ALL Americans, regardless of their skin color, gender or who they love,’ she explained.
Her post caused a pretty significant increase in voter registration, so she definitely deserves all the praise!
