Joe Alwyn graced the red carpet for the first time since he opened up about his split with Taylor Swift in 2023. The actor, 33, came to the premiere of the movie “Kinds of Kindness” in New York City on Thursday, 20 June, along with Emma Stone, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Plemons, Margaret Qualley, Mamoudou Athie and the director of the picture Yorgos Lanthimos.

This event took place at the Museum of Modern Art. Alwyn was well-dressed in a baby blue blazer, white collared shirt, blue tie, black trousers, and black dress shoes. Although Alwyn is not very vocal about his personal life apart from the promotion of his movies, he came into the limelight when he discussed a six-year relationship with Swift in an interview published in The Sunday Times Style on June 15.

As given by PEOPLE, the couple broke up in April 2023, and this was around the time when Swift began with the Eras Tour.

Alwyn on Breakup

In an interview about his break-up, Alwyn said that he wished people could understand the challenges of ending a long and beautiful relationship.

When asked if he had listened to Swift’s latest album, "The Tortured Poet’s Department," he said, "In thinking on what I was going to say, I would think and hope that anyone and everyone can empathize… 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 empathize 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. 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." In Kinds of Kindness, Alwyn acts on three completely different characters, though the same actors play three different stories throughout the movie.

Alwyn stars in this movie alongside Stone and Lanthimos after working with them in the 2018 movie The Favourite. Alwyn’s first feature film, Kinds of Kindness, has been released since his split with Swift. In 2023, he was featured in a short movie called A Very Short Film about Longing, and before that, he starred in the 2022 movies Stars at Noon and Catherine Called Birdy. "Kinds of Kindness" premieres in local theatres on Friday, June 21.
