Y’all ready for the REAL story behind that “Tortured Man Club” group chat?? We know Joe Alwyn‘s group chat with fellow British actors Andrew Scott and Paul Mescal somewhat inspired his ex Taylor Swift’s latest album The Tortured Poets Department.

But what the heck even was it?? Related: Taylor’s List Of Demands For Libson Stop Of Her Eras Tour Revealed! & DAMN! It really sounded like a self-help group for self-indulgent, whinging capital-A Actors.

So it made sense Swifties took it as major shade against Joe post-breakup. But it was always self-effacing, says Andrew. The All of Us Strangers star explained to Variety on Wednesday: Paul played a tortured character in 2020’s Normal People, Joe did in 2022’s Conversations with Friends — both adaptations of Sally Rooney novels.

Clearly they all thought it was funny they were playing so many tortured souls. But what did they actually talk about? Not much, as it turns out!
