After months of speculation about the couple’s relationship status, the British actor, 31, finally addressed engagement rumors in a new interview with WSJ. Magazine.
“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,” Alwyn, who began dating the 32-year-old singer in 2016, told the outlet. “I mean, the truth is, if the answer was yes, I wouldn’t say, and if the answer was no, I wouldn’t say.”
While the Conversations With Friends star was coy about the rumors, he was very clear as to why he keeps his private life, well, private. “We live in a culture that people expect so much to be given,” he shared. “So that if you’re not posting all the time about what you’re doing, how you’re spending a day or how you made a breakfast, does that make you a recluse?”
