Some fans believe Tom Hiddleston’s good reputation is being soiled due to his very public romance with Taylor Swift (hi).
Before he was one half of Hiddleswift, the Emmy nominee was known for his roles in Thor, War Horse, Midnight In Paris and Only Lovers Left Alive.
Ok, maybe he was just best known to mainstream audiences as Loki from Thor, but do give those other movies a looksie. He’s fantastic as F. Scott Fitzgerald in Paris.
Then, he donned a white tank top that read “I Heart T.S.” and Hiddlelovers everywhere shook their heads in disgust.
Their relationship is still going strong, but Hiddleston and Swift aren’t as showy as they were earlier this summer, thank God.
Yesterday, a Cathay Pacific airlines employee got to take a photo with Hiddleston, who was en route back to Australia to continue filming Thor: Ragnarok.
“He’s really so Loki (low-key) in real life!” user @jiwashee wrote on the Instagram.
Before he crossed the Pacific, Hiddleston spent last weekend with Swift at her beachfront home in Rhode Island.
“Taylor sent her plane to pick up Tom before the weekend,” a source told People Magazine.
During an August 12th interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Hiddleston was again asked about his relationship with Swift.
“We all live in a world where every phone has a camera and there’s nothing new, really, about the spotlight on me. I think that’s what happens when you’re a public figure,” he said.
“I’ve learned that there are many sides to a story, and that sometimes there are a lot of stories out there which are false and the hardest thing is to try to not let those falsehoods affect your own life.”
After Emmy nominations were announced on July 14th, THR got Hiddleston on the phone to talk about being a nominee for The Night Manager.
Oh, and about dating Taylor Swift.
“That notion is — look, the truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we’re very happy,” Hiddleston said sheepishly.
“Thanks for asking. That’s the truth. It’s not a publicity stunt.”
He’s so adorably British.
