Joe Alwyn, the British actor Taylor Swift has quietly dating for over a year, has made a point in all his interviews for The Favourite to stress, whenever asked about his relationship with Swift, how much he’d prefer to keep it private.

So he really doesn’t want to talk about her. But at the UK red carpet premiere for The Favourite, one reporter dared to ask him what he thought about Swift’s political Instagrams.

Maybe time was tight, and he needed to move on. Or maybe he didn’t want to stay in an interview where he was going to be asked any more questions about his American girlfriend and her personal politics.
