Tom Hiddleston looks pale, tall & lovely at ‘Life of Pi’ premiere: would you hit it?

Tom Hiddleston was at last night’s UK premiere of Life of Pi. No, he’s not in the movie or anything. I guess he just wants to work with Ang Lee at some point (who doesn’t?). So these are the hard-to-find photos of your Hiddles at the Life of Pi premiere, looking wonderful and dashing. He looks much better here, right? His last public appearance (that we covered) was at the London Film Festival in October, and in those pics he looked like he was wearing too much orange foundation. At least in these pics, he’s letting his pale skin glow!

Tom has been giving some quotes here and there, some of them boring, some of them interesting. I mean… I like his interviews, but it’s not like he’s Michael Fassbender, who basically can’t speak to a journalist without giving half a dozen quotes reeking of dong innuendo and beast sex. When asked about possibly doing a third Thor film, Hiddles said:

“You never count your chickens,” he reveals. “When you’re inside it, you’re just thinking, ‘I hope I haven’t screwed this up.’ You don’t want to be the weakest link in the chain.”

So will there be a Thor 3 after such success for both ‘Avengers’ and ‘Thor’ already – surely, so? He shifts in his seat. “These kind of films, not to get too heavy about it, all depend on the financial success of the one before, so we’ll have to see.”

Despite this, Hiddleston feels in very good hands with the director of ‘Thor 2′, currently in production – despite not having his good friend Sir Kenneth Branagh at the helm.

“Ken established the tone, so we’ve taken the baton and kept running. Alan Taylor is fantastic, one of the men responsible for ‘Game of Thrones’ which is so of that world, a very grounded, gritty, earthy world where warriors and swords and monsters and magic all meet, so his experience of that has given him a fantastic take on the whole world of Thor.

“I went to a summer screening of a Marvel short film. Ken came and so did Alan, it was very clear how much mutual respect between them and I thought, ‘ok, it’s going to be fine.’”

Although Branagh has long been celebrated as an intellectual with his hand firmly in the classics pie, Hiddleston wasn’t surprised that he got his mitts on the Marvel hero…

“He was refashioning those archetypes in space. We talked about King Lear and that kind of dynastic drama, about succession, with somebody at the top of the tree, and somebody else due to succeed the throne, there’s always a wrestling if it’s father and son… it’s all very dynastic.”

[From HuffPo UK]

Yeah. Kind of boring unless you’re Hiddles-obsessed and everything that comes out of his mouth is worthy of abject devotion and desire. I mean, I like the guy but I’m not there yet. He seems kind of dorky, I think. But I’m willing to give him all the time he needs to show me his inner beast. DO IT, Hiddles.

I do like how tall he is… love tall Englishmen, always and forever. He just hasn’t reached the “Dong Kryptonite” level yet.

    He’s adorable when he smiles.

    3rd pic is too sweet.

  2. Vee says:

    Yes. I would hit it. He is adorable!

  3. carrie says:

    he’s enough good actor not to be ridiculous in Thor and he’s good in the Spielberg movie

  4. Samigirl says:

    I’d hit it but I’m afraid of Eve hitting ME!

    He is very lovely. Sigh.

  5. Ranunculus says:

    Can’t wait to see him as a vampire and of course as Loki in Avengers 2 – great actor!

  6. Ms Kay says:

    @ Samigirl I’m the one who will hitting you *and* Eve :-D on the other hand try to stay away from Cumberbatch toff or Eve shall thump you fo sho!

    Tom Hiddleston is 6’2″ tall.

    Isn’t MAH husband just gorgeous… Look (do not touch!) at those long legs…

    On the other hand, there may be flashlights here but on many other pics one could still notice that foundation, it was just toned down this time. Still, I just want to slap him hard so it would fly off, at the risk of cutting myself on his cheekbones… But I’ve just had my manicure.. Oh what to do what to do… Be proud be pale!!!

    • Miss Kiki says:

      Ahh Thomas, the more he wears waistcoats the more I want him.

    • Samigirl says:

      Cumby can be hers and you can have Hidds as long as I can have Skarsgard. I like tall men as well. ;-)

    • Ms Kay says:

      @ Miss Kiki – trying to wind me up uh?

      @ Samigirl – you can keep the Swedish deer ;-)

    • Miss Kiki says:

      Woooahhh Samigirl slow your roll. When did Skarsgard come into this? I’ve been so busy fighting these pair for Cumby and co I hadn’t been keeping an eye on my precious Viking. Stay away from him I’m warning you, this will get ugly.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Ms Kay, I’m having a terrible time getting used to new names. Are you the Lady Formerly Known As Dooliloo? If Hiddles is your husband, I think you must be, am I right?

      In other news, I am amazed anyone has to ask that question: Would we hit it?

      • Ms Kay says:

        Yes me dear it’s me. Miss j.eyre got me a sweet combo name as Ms Kay-Doo :-)

        Got my eyes on you all!

      • EscapedConvent says:

        @ Ms Kay—Ms Kay Doo is perfect! That will help me remember for sure. ;-)

        Hiddles is taller & cuter than ever. What’s all this about him playing a vampire? That sounds delish.

      • Miss Kiki says:

        @EC, I’ve just done a quick search of this vampire film. It seems that Hiddles took over the role after Fassy dropped out. I wonder if they’ll go the True blood route and drop some random nakedness in there, can you imagine?!

      • j.eyre says:

        @EsCon – where have you been, my errant nun? Your bed at Thornfield has hardly been slept in *side-eye* Good lord, you have left me to parry with Ms. Kay-Doo all on my own. Thank heavens OBella, Gracie and Marty have been around to help. Good to have you back. (ps – saw Mr. Hardy’s Wuthering Heights. Thank you, thank you ever so)

        @Ms. Kay-Doo – heavens yes! Your husband is positively delectable in these photos. I mean,if one forgot herself for but a moment, she might be compelled to rip that tie from his neck, tie him to the nearest stationary object with it and give him a tongue bath several times over… you know, if one did not have so much respect for the sanctity of your marriage.

        @Kaiser – but it is his dorkiness that is the hottest part about him. With your beloved Fassy, you know what you get. It will be furious and dirty; although desirable, it is also consistent. But dorks think… they think too much and for too long. They imagine stuff – stuff we can’t even begin to dream up. And they are meticulous to detail. No, a dork wrapped in that package (innuendo intended), that is my kind of fantasy… sorry, I mean Ms. Kay-Doo’s husband.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Hello, j.eyre! I don’t know how coherent this will sound, as I am breathless with giggling at your message. Deep breaths now….

        Thank you for holding down the fort at Thornfield! It’s good to be back! I was trapped over at The Grange. Even drinking many delicate glasses of port did not help to liven up that dull lot. I even yearned for one of Heathcliff’s snarling fits just for some excitement.

        Am so glad to hear that you enjoyed Mr. Hardy’s Wuthering Heights! I love it & don’t see how anyone can ever out-Heathcliff him.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        @ Miss Kiki,

        Thank you for the reply! Hiddles will make a devastating vampire. So he replaced Fassy?!

        P.S. Did anyone ever see Fassy as Azazeal in the British series “Hex”? He’s the only thing I can remember from it. He was a sexy demon.

      • Ms Kay says:

        Same old Same old… Gone for a few hours and all the vultures aka j.eyre, EscapedConvent, LucyO/M, Gracie are dancing around my hubby… This is getting silly now ladies :-D

        *gives instructions to Thor to load catapult with heavy frosty stones*

      • EscapedConvent says:

        @ Ms KayDoo—I have just received a message from j.eyre. She will be rolling out the Siege Tower just as soon as Mr. Rochester moves his horse & buggy from the Carriage House.

        @ j.eyre—I don’t mean to be impatient, darling, but hurry up, willya? Ms KayDoo is hitting us with rocks. Need siege weapons, quickly!

      • j.eyre says:

        Oh for the love of all things holy! I am re-watching Henry IV part II’s sauna scene for the umpteenth time, what has Mrs. Kay-Doo-Hiddles gotten up to? I have amassed an arsenal of Needlepoint Samplers and un-darned socks for the siege. I have brokered a flimsy alliance with Agent MLucyO – but keep an eye on her. Miss Kiki I like and I think with Kay-Doo pulling Thor into this, we might have her help. I shall run up and see if Samigirl is up to the challenge – my bet is yes.
        Mercy, darling, now I am plum tuckered out. A spot of soup and I should be right as rain.

      • Ms Kay says:

        Yes keep watching it on the telly.. Meanwhile, I am watching him in flesh and bones whilst he strips down to dip in the bath I ran for us both, and then we tell each other about our day… “Oh nothing sweetie, just got rid of two leeches or three.. Ohh yes right there honey..” *massage*

        Ta Ta!

      • EscapedConvent says:

        @ j.eyre—Too late!! Large frozen rock….to the head….*thud*

        *whispers “Tell my Cumby I love him…”*

      • j.eyre says:


        Hang in there EsCon darling. As soon as Kay-Doo gets off me, I will drag you back to Thornfield and we will wait…

        I need to clean up a quick mess in the attic and then I can set about to putting you on the mend. Rochy is a bit ornery but he’s not bad on the eyes in a pinch.

        Agent MLucyO slipped something in the Hiddles bath salts so Kay-Doo won’t be so formidable next time around.

        Oh, we will be back…

      • Ms Kay says:

        @ EscapedConvent @ j.eyre

        Your comments gave me a stomach-ache from laughter! I was imagining like in a cartoon the whistling noise when a projectile is fired and lands on/crushes cartoon-EscapedConvent; under the stone she manages to free her hand and grabs j.eyre (who ran by her side as soon as she saw the stone land on her ally) by the arms and whispers her last love words to Cumby, and j.eyre screams “NOOOOOOOOO” – arms towards the sky – under a stormy weather :-D

        You fought bravely Spaniards… I salute you. ;-)

      • EscapedConvent says:

        If I am ever in a real-life siege over a gorgeous pale Englishman, I want all you ladies on my team! ;-)

    • Miss M says:

      I answered samigirl before reading your reply, hahaha

  7. Jcamp11 says:

    That man can wear a waistcoat and a suit. I adore him. So smart and gracious and truly kind. That may make me a sap. But he is lovely.

  8. mom2two says:

    Don’t throw tomatoes at me, but I don’t usually find Tom attractive…but these photos, he looks great. Sounds like a nice guy and he was the best thing in the Thor movie.

  9. Little Darling says:

    Yes, I will gladly spread his ginger sauce on a side of my biscuits…delicious. And then I can just laugh at his brilliance while sipping on his tall drink of waterness.


  10. V4Real says:

    Seriously! What kind of question is that; of course I’ll hit it, let it simmer down and hit it again. I like Tom, he isn’t ridiculously handsome but there is something about him that gets me.

  11. Shitler says:

    He could do with a cheeseburger. Or two

  12. Jenna says:

    Nope. Not sure if Eve would still hit it though… hmm…

    The only Tom for me is the Hardy. Le UNF. That’s ALL mine, ladies!

  13. Izzy says:

    I’d hit it six ways from Sunday. He is totally my kind of dong kryptonite.

    Raise your hand if you LOVE that expression! Dong kryptonite. Kaiser really outdid herself on that one!

  14. Lein says:

    Well,I don`t like Fassbender,too much of a bigheaded ego for my taste.
    I rather listen to Tom,and hit that;)

  15. Arika says:

    Would I hit it? Hell yeah I would, with the force of Odin!

  16. KellyinSeattle says:

    Nope; I’m still thinking of Mr. Bana. Tom’s forehead is freakishly big (but who’s looking at his forehead?)…I like his suit, and I like lanky men but he doesn’t do it for me; you ladies can have him w/t a fight from me. However, I might just give him “pity sex” :)

  17. madpoe says:

    I love tall, adorkable, sweet, funny Englishmen! ;) yea he’s not gettin’ kicked outta my bed anytime soon *glares at Butler*

  18. Miss M says:

    None of you would hit him…
    …He is mine and I won’t share, hahaha.

    ps: *running away from this thread*

  19. Ann says:

    Well Fassbender is actively engaged in all the Hollywood star bonanza and those semi-nude covers and photoshoots are like gross in my opinion… I didn’t like Chastain’s GQ pictorial and I didn’t like his either. Fassbender like Cumberbatch are running around making up for lost time and getting overexposed. At the moment I’m supersaturated with them. Hiddlestone, Hemsworth evan Evans, aren’t dialing up the exposure, at least not as far as I can tell. Gosling too – he went away a bit and all was well again with the world.
    Hiddlestone is more low key and even if he doesn’t do anything for me as an actor, he’s modest and all. He says the right things without sounding like a posh schmuck even though he sometimes sounds a bit too pretentious for my taste… but that’s how he usually talks so you can’t fault one for being articulate, grammatically correct and using fancy words.

  20. Denver Danni says:

    Yaaaassss – love love love love.

  21. Vera says:

    He’s so adorbs and geeky. Heck yes!

  22. Reece says:

    I’d like to have drinks and converse in multiple languages with him.

  23. Ruth Dunbar says:

    Would I hit it? Yes.

    Speaking of Dong Kryptonite, I’d like to put in a request for some Mads Mikkelsen coverage, please. My thighs ache just typing that.

  24. Amy says:

    I was there!! I met him! My mom and I are on vacation in London and we just came by when they were getting ready for the premiere and because there were almost no people there we decided to stay and watch. But no one knew that he was coming and we didn’t really know any of the actors in the movie so we were just about to leave. Then suddenly there he is, I actually think I was the first one to notice him, and let me just tell you – he is GORGEOUS in real life!!! Photos don’t even do him justice! And he is so, so nice and smiley, one of the sweetest celebrities I’ve ever met! :D

  25. KLO says:

    a thousand times YES.

    His smile always does it for me :P

  26. Luxe says:

    I love love love this guy. A dorky, smiley guy suits me just fine lol!

  27. Mira says:

    Where’s Eric Bana? Bring him on! More of Eric Bana, Ewan Mcgregor et al.

  28. Christa says:

    I would hit it until neither of us could walk straight! Seriously, this man hit Dong Kryptonite level looong ago. Fassbender once used to be my fave, and while I still adore the guy, Hiddles is now King. For real, it’s like his attractiveness just sneaks up and blindsides you. I didn’t find him to be attractive much at all, then I saw him do ONE interview and suddenly this man had taken over. He could do whatever he wanted to me, in ANY way he wanted ;)

    • ViktoryGin says:

      Exactly, so much charisma and duende. He’s one of those people whose appeal is his character. I get weak in the knees over an eloquent man. And what makes it so attractive on him is that it doesn’t seem to be accompanied by the typical smugnesss that one associates with his ilk. He’s really exceptional.

  29. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Would I ‘hit it’? No, no I wouldn’t. Definitely too dorky in an ‘uncool’ way for me. Not to mention that I don’t find him at all ‘good looking’. And he’s tall, really?

  30. alons-y alonso says:

    I’d hit it til it broke. I love that he’s a bit of a dork. it’s adorable

  31. I Choose Me says:

    Yup! Always and forever.

  32. bangarang says:

    He looks like he should play Red Johin in the Mentalist

  33. rightgrrl says:

    his looks + english nerdiness + that VOICE = the perfect man. love him

    • Fangirl says:

      Yes, Hiddles voice is sooo sexy ! OMG ! I can listen to him talk for hours….his accent is soooo attractive. ! his nerdiness is sooo adorable and THAT makes him sexy…. and he is handsome too , ahhh i need a man like that ! TOTAL HIDDLES FAN !!!

  34. dasha says:

    I would tap it, I mean he really is all man, even if he is a bookish dork at times. But that’s only part of his appeal to the ladies.

  35. Lorna Jane says:

    I am a little confused….didn’t Kryptonite emasculate Superman i.e deflate his dong and everything else, rendered him helpless?
    Perhaps “biscuit Kryptonite” would be more apt? Like maybe rendering your biscuit helpless against the charm of the magnificent Thor boys? Dong Kryptonite sounds like a wilted passion pole to me!

  36. Miss M says:

    Well, Life of Pi is is one of my favorite books. So, I had high expectations (almost, if not equal, as I have for Les Mis). I saw Life of Pi last week and I really liked it.

  37. Feebee says:

    I know he usually embraces his paleness but he really looked best when he had a bit of a tan (I think he said he went to Hawaii). With a bit of a tan and that smile the only possible way I could hit it faster is if I was single, ha!

    God after the Halle Berry drama it’s so nice to see one of our resident fluffies brighten things up.

  38. Sam x says:

    He is CUTE!! and his smile *swoon*

  39. Li says:

    Would I hit that?
    How is that even a question?
    A better question is who wouldn’t? Seriously do they exist? Are you out there? Are you human?

  40. Green is Good says:

    A man that knows how to wear a waistcoat. Damn, he’s hawt!

  41. Fangirl says:

    Love Hiddles ! Such a sweetie ! Where do i get a guy like him…. ? Need to start looking under rocks…..

  42. Maria_Spain says:


    i love when he starts talking :D there is no short answears on his vocabulary .

  43. scyllaya says:

    This article is infuriating trash. Unless this is a joke-site.
    Is this a satire joke site that makes fake articles that sound they were written by some uneducated 13-year-old?
    If yes, this is definitely not the kind of humour that makes me laugh.

    In the off-case this is real and this was supposed to be an actual article, I repeat: This is trash, I have never in my life read bigger trash than this.

    Tom gives in-depth answers about character archetypes, films, theatre and literature and he gets called dorky and boring, because he doesn’t talk about sex?

    What is wrong with you?

    Believe it or not there are people who are interested in intellect and art and not just what a man has in his pants.

    This article is insulting. Insults Tom and insults his fans.

    You do not have to be “Hiddles-obsessed” to appreciate an educated man and his kind, thoughtful answers.

    The reason why he doesn’t put his every sentence full with sex and innuendoes is because he has class. Smart and polite is not “boring”, it’s called being a gentleman, but I guess you never heard about that.

    • Ms Kay says:

      Enough with the condescending tone.

      The most embarrassing thing is Tom Hiddleston fandom, say 95% nuts and 5% sane, we all know about the pure trash in the form of bazillion of tumblr links dedicated to his different body parts and endless embarrassing gif and PhotoShop pics done by, brace yourself, not only pre-teens but also adults! Now compared to this article, I mean what??

      Do I agree with Kaiser thinking the interview is boring? No, but I just ignore it; most people know about his thoughtful and grammatically perfect answers. But most importantly compared to what his twitter followers tweet him whenever he posts something, say some poetry and fans react like “will you marry me? You are sexy! I want to rape you, you make my ovaries explode!” and undermine the charm and endearment of his tweets, this 24/7 so really there is far worse, so why nitpciking here?

      There is a difference between being obsessed and fantasize; escapism ever heard of that word? Clearly you haven’t as you just jumped into your conclusions. What makes you think one isn’t educated because one fantasizes just to escape from time to time? Even the most intellectual and well educated people like to escape; would it kill you to find out that the intellectual man actually farts? My point is don’t cast stones just because someone finds him some flaws, that doesn’t make one of a lesser person than you. You are reacting like one of his Stans here more than anything else actually. You can be rational enough to think that there are people who unanimously find him “perfect” and others don’t. Had you taken your “he is a perfect gentleman” goggles off you could see it. It’s that simple, really.

      Plenty of other actors even if they talk about sex they aren’t trash nor any less class acts of gentlemen either, so please. To be a gentleman isn’t just about to be well behaved in public, it’s what one does in private that speaks of the character.

      And what are you doing on a gossip website and precisely Tom Hiddleston?

  44. alex says:

    He’s such a sweetie and utterly adorable :3

    Plus tall, loooooong legs (god those legs) charmign smile…
    I would hit that. I would hit it in every possible way you could imagine.
