Tom Hiddleston went to the ‘Iron Man 3′ after-party in LA: would you hit it?

Oh, will you look at this. It seems like Tom Hiddleston was in LA last night for the premiere of Iron Man 3. Do you think Tom/Loki has a cameo in IM3? I wonder…? It could just be that Tom is part of the Marvel universe now, so he comes out to support all Marvel adventures, even if he’s not a part of the film. Anyway, I can’t find any photos of Tom actually walking the red carpet for the film, but these are pics of him at the after-party in Hollywood.

Who’s the girl? Get on it, Dragonflies! Their body language seems to indicate that they might be friends or something, although my first thought was that she’s a Dragonfly Fan Girl and she’s just staying as close to him as possible until he calls security. Either/or. Because I’m a big meanie and I can’t stop thinking about Tom’s try-harding at the MTV Movie Awards, I’m not surprised that he came out for the premiere. Tom must get attention! PAY ATTENTION, DRAGONFLIES.

Meanwhile, in addition to actively pursuing the lead in the remake of The Crow, Tom has also scored a lead role in another film, this time a period drama. The name of the film is either Capa or Close Enough, and it’s based on the true story of war photographers Gerda Toro and Robert Capa in the 1930s. Hiddles will play Capa and Hayley Atwell will play Toro. The film is scheduled to start production in June. This actually sounds like something I would watch, and it also sounds (substantially) like HBO’s Hemingway & Gellhorn.

And here’s the trailer for Thor: The Dark World again.

    Not him again. ZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzz

  2. Why is his face so tan?! And no, he doesn’t appear in Iron Man 3 so he was probably just there to party.

  3. Anna says:

    I think this is the studio/Marvel at work more than anything, starting the promos for Thor, bc THREE Thor 2 actors were at the Iron Man events: Hiddles, Kat Dennigs and Jamie Alexander.

  4. T.Fanty says:

    Poor TommyAnnE will never escape the curse of the dragonflies.

    That said, I’d consider it. He actually tweeted something smart today and I’m enough of a floozy for that to be enough. The Oompa Loompa face will have to go, though. And he’d have to promise never to call me “mummy” (gags).

    • EscapedConvent says:

      I saw his tweet today about “Half The Sky” & was very glad to see it. Maybe some of his cult tweens will see it & want to find out more about Half The Sky.

      Good for you, Hiddles, thou Dragonfly King. ;-)

    • j.eyre says:

      Why is he stealing that poor girls phone? She is trying so hard to get it back.

      I LOVE that Kaiser is calling us his Dragonflies. That is so much better than being a Hiddlestoner or Loki’s Army or any other such nonsense. I will proudly call myself a Dragonfly – whether the crush lasts or not.

    • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

      He is working hard and even taking some super Twitter vitamins– two smart posts in a row. I am very glad to hear casting news at last.

      Hate the shiny suit and oompa loompa makeup, but he otherwise looks good. No, not going to hit it, but i want go see him working again.

      Is that a pistol in his pocket or is that fan making him really, really happy? Clearly it is her phone camera, not his, since that looks like an iPhone in the other pocket. (And yes, judging by what I see here, I think she is a fan, and Hiddles cannot get enough of that.)

      • T.Fanty says:

        I so want to love Hiddles. He’s a cutie, can rock a (matte) suit and is somewhat smart. His tweets today were ready to put me back on the Tommy train, but now this. Oh, TommyAnnE. Listen to your dragonflies. He needs to let us be great. And by that, I mean run his life.

      • GoodCapon says:

        I’m just rolling my eyes at his use of the word ‘cognoscenti’ to describe the Thor and Marvel fans. Stop it Tom!

      • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

        That dragonfly and hummi glued crown is MINE! I want wear the dragonflies not be one!

        I want very much to like Tommyana. I will never hit it, but I would like him to be the soulful, brainy actor he was pitched as– only for *real.* He will need to join our book club and let us run his life to achieve that, of course.


        Cognoscenti? Did he really? Noooooo, Tommy, no.

      • T.Fanty says:

        owwww. Just hurt my eyes, rolling them at your “I would never hit it” comment (on my mac, so imagine winking emoticon). You are crumpets and crotchshots. Of course you would hit the Crotchshot King.

        (Now *that* would be a fun crown..)

      • j.eyre says:

        I am doing some mock-ups of the Crotchshot King Crown. I should have a prototype by this afternoon.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Okay, but here are the stipulations:
        1- it needs to be a crotchshot of Hiddlestonian proportions
        2- there needs to be a knitted element to it somewhere. Argyle pattern optional.
        3- It must incorporate dragonflies (perhaps in #2)
        4 – it must be made of crumpets, and therefore edible.

      • EscapedConvent says:


        Jane, can you fit dragonflies & crotchshots onto the same crown? I am glad to hear that Tommy will be getting new headgear, as the Loki horns just make me laugh & I can’t imagine them scaring a gnat.

        EDIT: Just saw Fanty’s suggestions. A Crumpet Crown with little yarn dragonflies sounds very winsome. Hiddles will look adorable.

        I am imagining something like this:

        only with dragonflies.

      • T.Fanty says:

        And a giant crotch on top of it.

      • j.eyre says:

        @EsCon – although I like the idea (and have started on something similar for myself) it does not quite hit the right note now that i have this new Tommyanna voice in my head telling me to simmer down and stay put.

        @Fanty and EsCon – I saw the dragonflies emerging from the crotchshots; as if they were springing from all of his Monster Crotch energy to spread the words of some trite self-proclaimed philosopher that Tommyanna had read to himself with a small smile of understanding.

        Obviously the knit element will be key – I thing the two Crotches flanking the imperial center one should be wearing Dong Sweaters. I really feel argyle sends the wrong message here. The patterns will be carefully set out – one of Pomeranians and baked potatoes with little pieces of chocolate just out of reach and the other delicate whips and silk ropes floating about an impressive four-poster bed. The design of the crown itself will incorporate springs of lavender. What am I missing?

      • T.Fanty says:

        Verse. Do we need an inscription?

      • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

        @Tfanty: I would hit *only* if I wear the crown and it is acknowledged that I am the Queen if Dragonflies and Hummingbirds. I will also need something diaphanous to wear so that the hummingbirds can hold up the hem in their beaks, and perhaps a retinue of woodland hedgehogs. Then I would hit it.

      • T.Fanty says:

        He’d totally do that, but you’d have to spank it out of him.

        So. The inscription now needs to read;

        Over hill, over tumblr,
        Thorough bush, thorough twitter,
        Over Thornfield, over Samuel Jackson,
        I do wander everywhere,
        And I serve the Dragonfly queen,
        To dew her orbs upon the green.
        The hedgehogs tall her pensioners be:
        In their gold coats crumpets you see.

        Those with babies Cumby favours,
        On his vespa, he is our saviour:
        Farewell, thou lob of Cbitches; I’ll be gone:
        My Crotchshots and all our dragonflies come here anon.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        @ j.eyre,

        That description just made my eyes cross. That’s fabulous. Baked Potatoes AND chocolate? Wow.

        I was thinking about an inscription. He does like to announce “I am Loki” but that will only fan the hysterical flames of Tumblr. They’ll eat him alive, & the crown is to be edible, so that won’t do.

        My thinking cap is pinching me…..

      • EscapedConvent says:


        I can see that. He will be needing a Dragonfly Queen.

        P.S. I really appreciate the little hedgehogs that hold up the hem of my cape/habit, as I was always tripping & falling before I hired them.

      • EscapedConvent says:


        Oh! I love love ~lurve~ it! A beautiful gift, you have.

        It’s really too bad if Hiddles doesn’t read this. He’s not going to find this sort of thing on *whisper* Tumblr!

      • T.Fanty says:

        Thanks. I had a *little* help from Will, but I think my edits are seamless enough that it’s hard to tell where A Midsummer Night’s Dream ends and we begin.

        *off to see if I can sing it to Mendelssohn*

      • Anna says:

        I would just like to say, for the record, that this thread has COMPLETELY crossed over into Insane territory. And I do not have the slightest problem with that.

      • j.eyre says:

        @ C&C – there is no way in this novel or the next that you are going to be the Queen of the Dragonflies! You’re still pretending you wouldn’t let him bend you over the center carousel of the poetry section. I have stuck by this pixy for better or for worse, broken up with him, took him back and allowed Eve and Jenna to lob evidence of his pathetic little grasps for attention over several a post. Just because I am plugging his brother-in-arms does not mean that I am going to relinquish the crown I had to wait for Kay-Doo to drop before I could sweep in like a starving rat to steal.

        No, do what you want with the hummingbirds but Queen of the Dragonflies? I will have my title.

        @Fanty – lovely verse, darling. Brought a tear to my eye. I shall start etching it at once.

        @EsCon – I have two tiny little curved horns on the back of the crown for the Loki crowd. It will also serve to stash my gum.

        @Anna – darling, lines were meant to be crossed.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        @ Fanty!

        Don’t forget to bob your head up & down like a rappin’ GOOPY bad-ass mutha.

      • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

        @TFanty: You are truly a talented poet!

        With such crowns, I would totally do Tommyanna into the ground.

        He would no longer be my Secret Shamef*ck… no, wait I did not say that…!

        Edit: I would fly the Monster Crotch Flag on my crumpet tasting fork with honor, a lurid smile, and exhaustion, and make sure that all hedgehogs feasted well on the crumpets and were snug in their new sweaters.

      • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

        Actually Miss Eyre, I am the one who designed the dragonfly codpiece for Hiddles to wear while the hummingbirds feasted upon his candy floss Marie Antoinette wig. And I was wearing the Dragonfly Crown two threads ago, remember? Nevermind, it is yours now.

        And yes, I admit I would let him bend me over the poetry bookshelf or follow me up the library ladder if he likes it kinky….

        But ONLY if he will please show me evidence on Twitter that he has read Virginia Woolf, and at least some modernist poetry (perhaps e.e. cummings, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Gertrude Stein, or Mina Loy perhaps, or Cid Corman or Lorine Niedecker if we are feeling minimalist and want to get on to having wild sex).

        This may require some more experiments with the FrankenHiddles prototype.

      • Ncboudicca says:

        I’m on a plane and trying not to snicker out loud at these comments. :-)

      • j.eyre says:

        @C&C – forgive me darling, I was just flush with Tommyanna lust. Of course you cam up with the title and it rightly belongs to you. It’s just I don’t ever get a title and I got greedy. I am not even Mrs. Rochester; somehow I landed that burned-up sicko missing a hand, sight and any moral compass and am STILL Miss Eyre. *sniff* you may keep the crown as well *sob* it clashes with my bonnet anyway. Here, I knitted you a little humming bird patterned scarf to go with it. I had thought to tie Tommyanna up with it – it is long enough to use on a library ladder.

        @ncboudicca – I was wondering where you were. What fabulous adventure are you on? Hey, turn to the guy next to you and ask him if he knew they had finally Crowned the Dragonfly King. Report back to us on the look he gives you.

  5. marie says:

    no, I’ll leave him to all the other ladies. I do like the fact that he smiles a lot, seems personable.

  6. Marty says:

    Looking at some of the photos from last night, I swear to God Tom and Chris looked more in love than Chris did with his wife.

    Oh yes, my bitchiness is turned on to full capacity today.

  7. Miss Kiki says:

    I’m only here for the Thor trailer in fact I’m pretty sure that Hemsworth was actually at this premier as well.

    I’m verging on being full to the brim when it comes to Hiddles, and I don’t mean that in the fun way either.

  8. GoodCapon says:

    That suit looks cheap. Too bad.

    That fan is super duper lucky though! I’m jealous.

  9. EscapedConvent says:

    It looks to me like she is a fan getting a picture with Hiddles & it’s just a light-hearted bit of a laugh. Would she be dressed so casually if she were attending an event like that? I don’t know.

    But *this* I know—those pics have hit Tumblr by now, & that girl had better have some people who can hide her for a few months—maybe some relatives far, far away. She will not be safe on the streets of Tumblr.

  10. Mirella says:

    Nope. What’s going on with his tan lines?

  11. Jenna says:

    A lot of the people from the Marvel Universe were out from the premiere; mostly those from Thor. As for Hiddles…never. Loki never did anything for me. Unlike SOME. Ahem, shamef*cks. -_-

  12. popcorn11 says:

    Hes no leading man. My guess is he will settle into supporting roles playing the villain/bestfriend. I dont even think hes talented enough to tackle character roles in middle to high brow flicks. He will surely fizzle away *ducks behind upturned desk*

    • Atlanta says:

      Yeah he is not handsome enough for the leading man. I dont know why he gets so much attention? I am puzzled. I have only seen him in Thor and he was ok but not the stand out of the movie.

      • Eve says:

        “I dont know why he gets so much attention? I am puzzled.”

        Marvel machine behind him (plus The Avengers mega success) and a VERY hard working publicist: Luke Windsor.

      • GoodCapon says:

        I may be biased but he was definitely great in Thor and turned heads everywhere as that curly-haired Brit newcomer in HW.

        TBH most of the attention he gets is because of the Marvel films. I do hope he uses his fame to get better film projects. He may not really be a *star* but he has quality.

      • Anna says:


        I think the Marvel Machine can only do so much without the proper raw material. Case in point: Evans.

      • Spooks says:

        I actually thing he was one of the high points in Thor. He played Loki spot on ( I had a crush on him then, but only as Loki). And, he was great in Archipelago. If he would only shut up and quit twitter.
        Chris on the other hand, is a leading man only because of his looks. He doesn’t do anything for me, but some women go crazy over him.
        Portman was just annoying.

      • Eve says:

        @ Anna:

        Which leads us to the second observation I’ve made: he has a VERY hard working publicist.

        He’s also willing to play the game and clearly LOVES the attention, things we both know Evans has never been very fond of.

      • Anna says:


        I agree on the publicist with the same caveat: the raw material still needs to be there (it’s not like Marvel couldnt get Evans a good PR person). And while I also agree that part of that raw material has to be the willingness, and even desire, to play the game (which Hiddles has in spades and Evans not at all), don’t you think that there’s still that need for genuine charm? And that’s something I dont see from Evans – I dont dislike him but I sense no charisma, nothing interesting about him. He isnt inherently watchable like Hiddles or Cumby or Hems, or many, many others.

      • Eve says:

        @ Anna:

        There is charm — and talent to work said charm in pictures, with fans, during interviews. He’s good at advertising himself.

        The problem is when we realize there isn’t much more to him than that (at least, not in my opinion — I don’t think he’s a good actor). Some will keep buying that as earnestness. I, however, became immune to said charm because it looks like plain famewhoring to me — which is a huge turn-off.

        P.S.: By the way, I could be wrong, but Luke Windsor has been Hiddleston’s publicist prior to his Marvel movies.

      • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

        He gets attention because a.) he is very much an insider and a player who wants badly to play the game, and yes I think it takes considerable narcissism for such a desire to exist, and b.) he has a full time publicist who follows him everywhere. His famewhoring is a fullte job.

      • Anna says:

        @Eve –

        I wasnt implying that Windsor was Marvel-provided. Just that Marvel could have gotten Evans _a_ Windsor too.

        As for the famewhoring… well, we’ll disagree on Hiddles talent, but whatever his artistic merits, at least he’s promoting his own work [which he gets quite a bit of]/trying to get work by showing himself off – as opposed to using someone else bc your own work sucks. It might be tacky but it’s honest, so I’m ok with that. If he becomes overexposed, he’s the one who will suffer most.

      • Eve says:

        “…at least he’s promoting his own work [which he gets quite a bit of]/trying to get work by showing himself off – as opposed to using someone else bc your own work sucks. It might be tacky but it’s honest, so I’m ok with that.”

        Fair enough. I can’t disagree with that.

      • Izzy says:

        I actually thought he and RDJ made the movie. RDJ got almost all the best lines, and really, he’s just awesome. Period.

        But I also thought TH did an incredible job playing Loki. The character was truly lacking a conscience, but somehow I almost wanted to root for him. I feel that if you end up wanting to root for the villain, especially in a movie about superheroes, then the actor portraying the villain has done an excellent job. Just IMO.

    • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

      I don’t see him as leading man material (on the evidence of Deep Blue Sea) but will give him a chance with the Capa film. If he doesn’t deliver a stellar performance on that, I think he will have blown any cred as a leading man.

  13. TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

    Huh, was wondering who would pop up first here today – Hiddles or Cumby. :P

    (No snark, just observation).

  14. Lola says:

    Why dont you post about Hemsworth instead? He is much hotter.

  15. evie says:

    next: dating a model/actress for photo ops!

  16. Atlanta says:

    This guy and his fake tan lines. He looks ridiculous.

  17. MissMary says:

    He’s already a modelizer and known for his one nighters/casual relationships. He seems to be cool with all types of women and doesn’t hide it.

    • GoodCapon says:

      Do we know of any more encounters after that African woman? TBH I haven’t heard anything about his ONS and casual relationships aside from what I read here and other gossip sites.

      • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

        You know, to be fair, I was wondering the same thing.

        We know from that one account that he is just fine with casual hookups, apparently likes watching porn, and has… plenty of energy in that area. And we know from the Gwen Christie messages that he is kinky as all hell. But beyond that… it really is just gossip and conjecture.

        I have heard people talk about him as though he were a constant eyef*cking lech, but this could just be yet another fan projection. I too would prefer top hear it from the horse’s mouth.

        I think he is way too eager to get work and impress people to allow too many distractions at official events. My theory is that he is a workaholic with intimacy issues who needs to be in front of the camera, and that most of his energy is focused there.

      • MissThing says:

        “My theory is that he is a workaholic with intimacy issues who needs to be in front of the camera, and that most of his energy is focused there.”

        I have to agree there.

  18. Chrissy says:

    Is it just me or does it look like he has a 90s phone the size of my arm in his pocket?

    Totally retro, Tom. All the dragonflies on tumblr will be on you like larvae.

  19. flower says:

    Yeah I’d still hit it, he looks gorgeous.

  20. j.eyre says:

    To answer the question – yes I would hit it hard enough to make him see dragonflies swirling around his head. And I have hit it, many times, in my own sick little mind.

    I love what he is wearing here.

  21. Ginger says:

    She is a lucky fan girl! but I agree she needs to go into hiding now that she’s has been papped…watch out girl! The tumblr trolls are coming!

  22. Agitation says:

    The only thing I care about is the fact that we didn’t see Hiddleston until Hemsworth popped up. Love is in the air guys, and it’s name is Hiddlesworth.

  23. Reece says:

    Yeah I only really like him as Loki.

  24. Agitation says:


    And then this:

    I don’t see this as so much famewhoring as trying to be polite, while still catering to his insane fans. Make of it what you will.

  25. MissThing says:

    He spent more time with the fans on the other side of the street than he did in front of the paps on the red carpet. He also spent time with fans waiting by his car after the movie was over.

    Fame whore or not, he really seems to like the fan attention. However there has never been a camera he didn’t like ;)

    I love it when he goes commando too. I’d still hit. All night long.

  26. serena says:

    He is a part of the movie, I saw some pics.

  27. Mia says:

    Would I hit it? Nope. I do like his suit though. And why in the hell are they remaking “The Crow”? Hollywood recycles movies so much it’s disgusting. The period film actually sounds interesting though. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s independent or foreign. That’s the only way to see a compelling or thought provoking film these days.

  28. Miss Melissa says:

    Um. An observant individual (or an insider?) on another gossip page has pointed out that a certain male actor has accompanied Tom on this LA trip, and is in the background of all the pictures from the MTV awards and last night and can be seen speaking with Tom at the beginning of the video above.

    Hmm. Boobs or no, perhaps no one here has the preferred equipment for Hiddles?

    (John Macmillan is the name you want to google.)

  29. EscapedConvent says:

    Hmmm…just noticed that there are 170 responses to this post so far, which is not bad for a guy who was dismissed a week ago as a TryHard Pollyanna, & whom we would not hit.

    Are we fickle bitches, or what?!

  30. EscapedConvent says:

    Since we’ve lost our damn minds today anyway, I put forth that I would like to see Hiddles & Cumby in The Importance of Being Earnest.

    I never tire of imaginary casting.

    And no Reese Witherspoon aka Laura Jean Poon, or AnnE Hathapainintheass, either.

  31. T.Fanty says:

    Did someone just mention Toby? *swoons*

    I have no idea where anything is in this thread anymore.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Hmmm…I could have sworn I replied to this, Fanty. I called Maggie Smith your mother-in-law because of Toby. I hope that’s all right. ;-)

      This post has given me the most delightful case of the vapors & I am now lurching towards the chaise lounge.

      You really shouldn’t have brought up the codpieces…..

  32. Miss M says:

    @T.Fanty, Crumpets, j.eyre, Eve et al: Hmmm…I am just wondering if that ungrateful fellow gossip b*tch (aka Lainey) will plagiarize one of us AGAIN! We’ll see if she will use ..let’s say…crumpets “Heteroflexible” without giving any credit… *I am watching you, Lainey, with a shank in hand! :)

  33. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    I didn’t bother to read the article because I think this man is an idiot. But I wanted to answer the headers question: ‘would I hit it?’. Short answer: no. No way in hell. Yuck.

    I feel much better now :) .

    *hurriedly leaves thread before his rabid crazy stans attack lol*.

  34. allons- y alonso says:

    You know I would hit it every day ending in ‘y’. Please stop asking

  35. Marty says:

    I just want to congratulate all you wonderful ladies for a job well done today. This post has been epic!

  36. chloe says:

    and so begins the backlash…can’t blame you i’m starting to find him annoying as well

  37. Agnes says:

    I’ve seen some of your comments on tumblr and now I’m waiting for tumblr trolls to get here :D

  38. Agnes says:

    They didn’t start to whine yet but I’ve only found screens of our comments on CB to this post (so it’s rather new)

    Edit: Actually you can’t see the name of the website but I’ve recognised the comments

  39. kronster says:

    Tumblr is on you guys. :) ) And they are angry that you call them (what was that?oh, yeah) stupid little girls.

    I mean come on, why take everything so personally?!

    “Will there be a Tumblr–CB smackdown?”

    I hope so. Come to think of it, I’m actually dying to see that.

    Anyways,reading all comments made my day.

    p.s I’d hit that. But only if he goes back to dark hair. Not because of the whole Loki thing, but because dark hair looks better on him.

  40. ClaireNZ says:

    He is so gorgeous – the teeth, the voice and his hands all do something for me. My new crush
