While they had already gone official on social media, Taylor-Joy and McRae didn't pose for photographs in a professional setting until March 2022 when they went all out twice in one weekend. They first attended the CAA pre-Oscars party on 25 March, and two days later, on 27 March, they turned heads at Vanity Fair's Oscars afterparty.
Later that month, Taylor-Joy spoke to British Vogue about how she and McRae aren't just in a relationship, but are also good friends. "I said to my partner the other day that he was my hobby," she shared. "I see reading as something that I have to do. He loved it because he's the same. I've finally found someone who will happily sit in silence with me reading. We're basically 80 years old and seven at the same time and it works really well."
The busy actor also spoke about how they make long distance work. "It is [hard], but it's also kind of great because when you're together you're really valuing the time that you have," she explained. "Everyday mundane activities are so full of joy. I love going to the petrol station with him and filling up the car and going to get breakfast."
