Tom Hiddleston signs on for ‘Coriolanus’ gig, but will he come to Cannes?

First of all, Hayley Atwell tweeted – and then Tom Hiddleston retweeted – this image. Apparently, they hang out together in the back of cabs. Because of course!! Does there need to be a Dragonfly Fatwa against Atwell? Probably not. But it’s something to keep your eye on.

Anyway, this is partly an FYI – Tom is going to be in Cannes tomorrow, I think. His new film will be premiering there. The film is Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive, where Tom plays a goth underground musician who is reunited with his centuries-old vampire lover, Tilda Swinton (or “played by” Tilda, whatever). Mia Wasikowska plays Tilda’s sister and there might be a love triangle or something. There’s a clip from the movie too.

Um… okay, can I admit something? I like the way the Dragonfly King kisses. His on-screen kisses or whatever. It’s sexy. He has a sexy way about him when he’s playing “the lover”. Sh-t, does this make me a Dragonfly? Damn it. Yes, he’s too earnest and rather twee, but I would still hit that. Don’t judge me.

Also: did you hear that TWHiddleston is going to do Shakespeare again? He recently signed on to take on the lead role in a production of Coriolanus at the Donmar Warehouse. You can read more about the production here. You know what I found exciting? He’s going to star in the play with Jessica Raine, who I know as Jenny Lee in Call the Midwife. I LOVE HER. She just seems like such a sweet little thing, so delicate but… tough, you know? And you know what? I think Jessica is going to be exactly Tom Hiddleston’s type. I can picture them together perfectly. Oh, it’s on, Dragonflies. Jessica Raine will be our Spirit Animal (in regards to “Boning Hiddles”). Update: Ah, so I completely misread the Jessica Raine thing. They won’t be working together. But… they would still be perfect for each other, so Hiddles needs to get on that.

    more importantly, will Tilda be there at Cannes?!

  2. Anna says:

    Oh god, I would hit this so hard! Ever since I saw the trailer earlier in the week I have not been able to get that kissing scene out of my mind. And now I can’t get my breathing back to normal…AT WORK

  3. T.Fanty says:

    Jessica Raine isn’t going to be in Coriolanus. She’s in Roots, in the same theatre season.

    I’m okay with this. Shakespeare will be a nice change from Emo Hiddles.

  4. Sixer says:

    Jessica Raine is doing Roots, not Coriolanus. Same season at the Donmar, different plays. You know, that theatre is TINY. I wouldn’t go anywhere near a Hiddleston performance there. It would only take one mad fan to spoil it entirely.

    • T.Fanty says:

      And there is going to be an army, squealing every time he walks on. I hope he doesn’t pander to them by doing the nudity that the play could require.

      • Sixer says:

        I love that theatre. Been many times – including seeing Michael Sheen’s brilliant Caligula. But this just sounds like a recipe for disaster. Hiddleston AND Mark Gatiss? It’ll just be fan central. It’ll be worse than when no fans could get tickets for Ewan McGregor and they all just camped outside.

      • j.eyre says:

        @T. Fanty who said, “I hope he doesn’t pander to them by doing the nudity that the play could require.”

        Uhm… What?!?!

      • T.Fanty says:

        He has to go into the marketplace and let people examine the scars on his body. It could be anything from completely avoiding it (like Fiennes did), to something suggestive (sigh:http://i2.ytimg.com/vi/QkH9Wt30d-o/hqdefault.jpg), to a complete flash, which would be a bit gratuitous and not 100% accurate, but this production seems to be capitalizing on the popularity of its male stars (they haven’t even announced Volumnia FFS) so who knows?

        Either way, I’m TOTALLY watching it when NTLive screens it.

      • T.Fanty says:

        @ Miss Eyre:

        Oh. Just got your point. It’s not the nudity I object to (Never!!!!), it’s:

        a) the fact that he’s going to go on and on and on and on and on and on and on about how it’s ART and the nudity reflects the emotional and spiritual vulnerability the play exposes in his soul that can only be protected by the soft, iambic shelter of the verse that Shakespeare so lovingly crafted.
        b) how annoying tumblr is going to be. I’m already sick of Cumby in the shower (okay, that was a total lie, but you get the point).

      • Anna says:

        @Fanty

        As he is going on and on and on and on, you just tune out and feast your eyes :)

        Also, maybe I am the only one here, but I just love listening to him talk and be all intellectual ….or even ‘intellectual’.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Or, wait until I’ve had enough, pop the ball gag in and send him over to Miss Jane.

      • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

        He will. And that is the whole point. He will love every minute of it.

      • Atlanta says:

        It will be fine. Gael Garcia Bernal appeared in a play the Almeida and he was even more of a hearthrob then hiddleston is. Orlando Bloom was on stage too and he is also way bigger. And it worked out fine. Hiddleston is not that famous, although reading this website you could be led to believe he is the biggest movie star on the block.

      • Anna says:

        @Fanty

        Hey! That insatiable trollop already has CHarms all wrung out! By the time he comes over all he wants to do is cuddle! I call dibs on Hiddles in his top nude shape.

      • T.Fanty says:

        @ Anna,

        Oh my. I should warn you, though, that she had me over a barrel, yesterday, when she threatened to take away the Thornfield keys (mostly because that’s where she lets other people have me over a barrel), so I’m afraid that if she decides to unleash the Poms of War, I have no choice but to follow.

      • j.eyre says:

        Yes, well, using “Tom’s nudity” and “going on and on and on and on… ” in the same sentence is not helping things here.

        @Anna – this insatiable trollop needs TommyannE AND CHarms for my shower – I have two sides to soap up, after all.

        Besides, CHarms gives pretty good cuddles, I think I shall go canoodle him. Actually, you’re right. I am just being greedy. Which would you like? we can do tradesies at noon.

      • T.Fanty says:

        @ Miss Jane,

        Getting the boys to scrub you down, you say? So you *finally* managed to get Cumby out of the shower, then? Good job – he was starting to go all wrinkly.

      • j.eyre says:

        Yes, darling – I lured him out with a baby. He is wrapped in a silk robe and rolling on the floor doing raspberries and silly faces trying to make the little peach laugh – please come fetch him, that robe won’t stay shut.

        Do you know how large a shower I have had to put in for all of these giants? I had to go so high into the ceiling that Bertha is beginning to catch on the air vent is not a lint trap.

        and I think we may need a new barrel.

      • Miss M says:

        @T.Fanty: Will Saint John Cavill approve Hiddles’ nudity?It’s art right?! :)

        He was probably happy that Cumby’s scene didn’t show up.

      • Anna says:

        @Ms Jane –

        I think I will start with Hiddles, he’s got me all riled up right now. I will leave CHarms in your capable hands (and silk ties) for now – he still needs some Remora purging performed on him, and I cant think of anyone better than you to do it.

        By the way, what’s your secret for keeping CHarms and Hiddles focused on you in the shower? They always seem to want to scamper off together…that’s why I prefer to handle them one at a time.

      • T.Fanty says:

        @ Miss Jane; I thought of this. Through express pigeon post to the West Indies (possibly?), I conferred with the bastion of manly fortitude that is St.John Cavil, and he wrote me a lengthy letter in reply. After describing, in great detail, the various ways in which Hiddleyanna could possibly disrobe, he understands that the male nude is most tolerable, in the appropriate context (and contrary to popular opinion, he wrote somewhat haltingly, appropriate context does not include his boudoir). The important thing is to protect us dear ladies from such a corruptive sight, so he warmly urges us frail creatures to stay in the confines of our home in deep reflection on holy things, while he brave;y bears the brunt of tommyanne’s public immodesty.

        I’ll come and get Cumby, but the baby stays. I’d hate for the infant to be injured by a flying piece of broken barrel.

        @ Miss Anna. I believe Miss Eyre bravely stands in the midst of the flailing limbs and recites sonnets, which is a guaranteed way of getting TommyAnne’s (ahem) attention. CHemboy is easily enough distracted by the disco glitter ball she hung in the shower. Shiny things, and all that.

      • Anna says:

        @Fanty

        That’s why I keep all the shiny objects locked up when CHarms comes over. Easily distracted indeed. But man, Hiddles can be so much work! That’s why I simply let him blabber on. Keeps him busy, keeps me happy. (And keeping CHarms separate).

      • j.eyre says:

        @Fanty – Oh, thank heavens St. John Cavill has deemed Hiddles @ss appropriate. You did neglect to mention the post script about making him wear socks, however. I am a bit dismayed that he has asked to cut all the ladies’ speeches but I do understand how all those mouthy broads might, in fact, kick up enough dust to cause a tear in St. John’s Cavill’s eye which one might mistake for an actual emotion.

        @Anna – you taking Hiddles today actually works out quite well for me as I want to plow CHarms so hard he should be ready for harvest by nightfall.

        And you are both wrong – I do absolutely nothing to keep those two apart. Those boys add more steam to the shower than my water heater…

      • Anna says:

        @Miss Jane

        Well, if anyone can take such vigorous plowing, it’s CHarms… Just don’t break him, please!

      • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

        Anna, I too would love it when he waxes intellectual if he were actually good in that area. Alas, it all comes aceoss a bit like Brad Pitt calling himself a designer.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Who is Saint John Cavill & what have I missed? You wenches must help me out with your sub-references.

      • j.eyre says:

        St. John Cavill, as Agent MOL so cleverly brought him to the party, is our new Superman who does not like women to dress inappropriately or, you know, talk too much. He does condone nudity for art, which is his way of telling us why he showed him bum int he Tudors – art at its finest, you see.

        As for the rest of our references, we don’t even know what we are talking about.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        @Miss Eyre,

        Oh, I see. Thank you, Miss Jane. I was afraid I was having another blackout. Isn’t it just a bit confusing that Mr. Cavill likes a more demure, old-fashioned female while dating a fighter/wrestler/woman who could totally kick his ass? I’m just wondering.

        And…about that sweet cherub you used as Cumby-bait……how did you get my little Strawberry Plum out of her crib here at Cumby Manor & into your Shower of Debauchery? Return her at once! Very clever of you to send the Pomeranians to do the baby-napping today—I didn’t suspect them at all. I did raise one eyebrow when they all went up the stairs silently & in single-file (none of the usual frenzied Pom-scampering) but I shrugged it off, as the Thornfield Pomeranians have had some rather odd training & I just figured you were trying something new.

        Miss Eyre, is it me, or are you just a bit more shameless today than usual? Stealing my little Plum…..honestly.

      • j.eyre says:

        You know, I am shocked at the Poms strategical deployment today. It was positively masterful… the only hitch was I had dispatched them to fetch one of his scarves – the blue one, his favorite. Clearly I need to brush up on my Pom.

        I am mortified by my behavior today. I do not understand how I could fall to such levels of depravity so far below my accustomed level of propriety. It must have been the Pimms Cups ncboudicca brought yesterday – you know how I get when I drink Pimms. Honestly, I feel so ashamed, penitent, rueful – dirty. So dirty, in fact, I will probably need to wash the dirt off me… repeatedly and with great vigor…

        wherever can I do that?

    • Anna says:

      Oh god I would be in the front row!

  5. marie says:

    I feel extremely lame for asking this but WTH is with him & dragonfly? other than seeing posts on here I don’t follow the guy and have no idea what ya’ll are talking about..

  6. allons-y alonso says:

    Coriolanus is definitely one of Shakespeare’s most badass plays. (Is it sacrilege to refer to Shakespeare’s plays as badass? It seems a bit…. plebeian on my part :p ).

    I normally hate vampire movies – thanks to the steaming pile of excrement that is Twilight – but this one actually seems interesting. That, and my inner perv wants to watch Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton get it on.

    • T.Fanty says:

      Nooooooo! It’s my absolute favorite. I LOVELOVELOVE it.

      And, don’t forget John Hurt is in it. It should be a bit fabulous.

      • allons-y alonso says:

        T.Fanty! Long time no talk! :) *waves*
        Coriolanus is one of my favourites too! John Hurt too? oh.my.goodness. Hopefully we’ll get a screening. And by hopefully, I mean we’d better!!!! See, this is why I need to move to the England. There’s a lot of jobs in my field there and lots of Shakespeare productions. I’d love to see some Shakespeare here in Sydney *side- eyes Goddess Cate Blanchett*

      • T.Fanty says:

        Hey Missy!

        What’s your field? Move to the UK! Do it!

        Does Blanchett still run that theatre company in Sydney? I saw her at Brooklyn Academy of Music the other year – she was great. So many major companies come through NYC that I really can’t complain about missing out on English theatre too much.

      • allons-y alonso says:

        You’re very lucky in that sense :) Blanchett and her husband run the Sydney theatre company, yes. They’ve done really well. I think they finish their contract in 1-2 years.

        My field is Museums and Egyptology. It’s wonderful but a little niche. Australia is….not the best place to look for work in the cultural sector. I’m hoping to make the big move within the next 3 years. I went to London last year and fell in love. It’s a lot like Sydney….just older :)

      • T.Fanty says:

        That’s *so* amazing and cool! Is it easy for an Australian to get a UK work visa? I used to live in West London and there was a HUGE Australian community there.

        If that doesn’t work out, come to NYC!

      • allons-y alonso says:

        I think I ran into more Aussies in London than I did the English.

        In terms of getting a visa: Yes and no. There’s a 2 year worker’s visa for Aussies under 30 and there’s also an employer sponsorship based visa. To be honest, I need to research it a little more.

        Hmmm….NYC sounds so very appealing as well. I’ve always wanted to go to the Met. Atm I’m just trying to get as much volunteer experience as possible and any museum job to gain some more experience.

        All of this work talk has worn me out, maybe if i stare at those Hiddles pic I’ll feel a rejuvenated.

      • T.Fanty says:

        That’s what I was wondering, re: work visa. Many of my friends did the travel-work thing after uni, but I’ve heard it’s harder to get a permanent work permit. I got a temporary work permit to take an internship in NYC the year after I got my BA, and while I was here, managed to secure a dream job with a full work permit. It’s definitely do-able, and and I haven’t regretted a second of it.

      • allons-y alonso says:

        That’s so cool. What kind of work are you doing? I’m really striving for something similar to happen :) It makes me more confident in going through with it knowing that others have achieved it. Thank you kindly.

      • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

        John Hurt is in OLLA not Coriolanus. And yes, the more I learn about the script the more thrilled I am. Honestly, I don’t think Hiddles is the main thing for this film.

        I’m very eager to hear the reviews and to see Tilda! She should be there at least.

        If TommyAnnE is not there, I think this will be a first for him. Missing the red carpet??

      • T.Fanty says:

        Allons-y,

        I came here to work in the theatre. Which is almost as lucrative as Egyptology! NYC is (happily for me) a beautiful and creative place.

      • allons-y alonso says:

        T.Fanty – now *that* is cool

      • grabbyhands says:

        I didn’t hear about John Hurt, but I did hear that Mark Gatiss was going to be in it.

      • T.Fanty says:

        @Grabby: it seems I got confused and started talking about the co-stars from a variety of movies in the same context. I think Hemsworth is playing the third spear-carrier, you know.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Coriolanus is also my favorite play! I will be a little upset if he plays a crap Coriolanus….did anyone see the Ralph Fiennes version? Was it any good?

    • Atlanta says:

      London audiences are used to actors from stage and screen. Tom hiddleston is not by any stretch of the imagination the biggest star that has graced our stages.

    • grabbyhands says:

      I think it’s completely apt-as Shakespeare himself was kind of a bad ass. :) I would love to see this-it’s one of the few plays of his I haven’t seen live and seeing Hiddles in it would be a great first time.

  7. kronster says:

    Are You Kiddin’ ME? That kissing scene is awful.
    I’m disappointed. :(

  8. LilyRose says:

    Theater is his medium, so this is good news. It’ll be interesting to see how he plays the part. Any performance I’ve seen of him in the movies, with the exception of the two Joanna Hogg productions, have been rather um… theatrical. Loki, the Deep Blue Sea, the Hollow Crown; are big expressive performances. Nothing wrong with that but I feel like you can catch him acting.

    He’ll attend Cannes, he attends anything. Whatever, I still like him. Wonder if the movie will get booed, like every other movie seems to have been so far at the festival.

  9. Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

    He and Haley Atwell are doing a film right now about Robert Capa. The other guy in the cab is the director. The film schedule could keep him from Cannes I guess, though I’d be astonished because this guy attend everything.

  10. GoodCapon says:

    I want to be in Tilda’s place in that trailer!! LOL.

    I’ve never seen Jessica Raine act until this recent Doctor Who episode. IMO she’s decent (and beautiful too, which shouldn’t hurt)

  11. Lauli says:

    Good news.
    I’m glad he’s back to work.

  12. Miss M says:

    “Yes, he’s too earnest and rather twee, but I would still hit that. Don’t judge me.”
    Kaiser (troll), This is beyond!

    “Does there need to be a Dragonfly Fatwa against Atwell? Probably not.”

    NO! The dragonfly’s Goddesses (us) are not Hiddlestoners. I am glad you stopped trolling half way your thoughts…

  13. grabbyhands says:

    I never don’t want to go back to the UK, so knowing that he will be doing Shakespeare live makes me drool with longing. I also understand that Mark Gatiss is going to be in it as well. Plus, I love me some Jim Jarmusch, so I am looking forward to the flick.

  14. TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

    Honestly, I’m really here for Tilda, and that movie looks like dark, campy fun.

    Good for Tom, re: Corialanus. He belongs on stage. He wants to be famous, I get it but (armchair PR agent alert) maybe doing something low-key like this will get his focus/zen/groove back?

    And oh good lord, I’ve just realized that he’s gone from “charismatic actor” to “fascinating case study” for me. I need to get outside today. :/

    • j.eyre says:

      Don’t go outside,ProBeer. Stay inside with me and let’s analyze Hiddle photos all afternoon. You provide the beer and I the scones.

      (ps – I recently said the exact thing about this being a good opportunity for him to refocus – like minds and all that)

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        Hey there Mrs. Eyre!

        But but but it’s a hot sunny day outside! And there’s a breeze! And I’m getting my base tan on finally! And and and outside is where all the hot, shirtless baseball players are right now! :D

        Fiiiiiiiiine, I’ll put off my run until later this evening and we can spend the day looking at Hiddles pics and discussing his latent career options. But only if we get to throw some Armitage pictures in there to talk about as well. He’s been very beardy lately (you know, being King of the Dwarves and all) and it’s doing things to me.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Hello Jane & PromisedBeer,

        I’m here after just running outside quickly for 60 sexonds of Vitamin D. Vampire Nuns (my own special sub-set of nunhood) have to be careful of the sun.

        Oh—I just saw that revealing “sexonds” typo. I think I’ll leave it there.

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        EsCon, hello there! Yes, please, get inside. I don’t want you bursting into flames, I like you too much! Here, have a cold one, and a scone to go with it. Sit awhile and chat on the porch with us. It feels like forever since I actually got to sit and enjoy myself in a British Hottie post. Damn finals and jobs taking away from my CB time, I tell you.

      • j.eyre says:

        Ug, ProBeer and EsCon – all this talk of running is exhausting me and clearly my energy could be better used elsewhere.

        Fine – go do whatever it is you need to do as I sit here and eat my third troth of carbohydrates. I shall research Armitage and Hiddles photos while you are gone. Mind the puddles of drool when you returned.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        @PromisedBeer!

        Hello, Southern Goddess! Yes, I think I will pull up a chair, because drinking a cold glass of something on the veranda is just about all we know of heaven.

        Are there any Mint Juleps left in that pitcher?

        I’ll try not to break your sweet porch swing….. ;-)

        Oh, & here! Have some lovely Thorin:

        http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-EDHcJIa2LkU/UOBpsA7CxUI/AAAAAAAABuE/p7h6S0uoZsQ/s1600/reference31.jpg

        EDIT: Oh my giddy southern Aunt! I just noticed that if you click that image, Richard Armitage pretty much jumps out of the screen & kisses you full on the lips! (I didn’t kiss him, of course—he is yours.) It’s an enormous pic!

      • j.eyre says:

        I kissed him, he looks like Ray Stevenson so there was no stopping me.

        And of course there are mint juleps? what else would I serve for a Southern Tea?

        So are you all done with your running around then? Can we get back to the hot guys? Please, let’s not limit to the British – you know I like my Island boys (and by Island, I mean Australia)

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        @EsCon – of course there are mint julups! Plus, since Mrs. Eyre informed me earlier what kind of scones she was baking, I brought the appropriate beer to drink with them.

        I don’t mind at all if y’all feel the need to kiss Rarmage (I can call him that – we agreed that his whole name was just too long to scream so we decided to condense). He is rather kissable, and I’ve been bored since Mr. Byran went on tour and left me behind. Sounds like its time to make a sojurn to my English cottage …

        We can bring Charms into this too, Mrs. Eyre. And then I’m sure the booming sound of Thor laughter will have the Dragonfly King running down this way soon enough and by then it’ll nice enough to go hop in the creek for a night time swim and you can surely see where this is going, right? Right.

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        Mrs. Eyre, it just clicked for me that you compared Rarmage to Ray Stevenson, and I feel like we should invite Ray over now to join us, as it would only be neighborly. He has to promise to bring Kevin McKidd along, though. And James Purefoy.

        Hell, who am I kidding? The entire male cast of Rome can come along and get it.

      • j.eyre says:

        Of course I can see where this is going – I saw it last night. It should be a proper party afterall.

        BTW – is that what you are calling out at night? I had Grace running all over trying to find chutney – I thought Rarmage was a specific brand.

        Dear lord, is Ray not here yet? I sent for him hours ago! That one, I tell you, he needs to be kept in line (and I do so love keeping him in line.) Entire cast it is – I shall send the poms out with invites at once.

        Speaking of spankings – what will Mr. Bryan be coming home to to have him atone for his transgressions?

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Ladies, ladies! Who said Ray Stevenson’s name?

        My head is swivelling & that is not pleasant. Are you guys just throwing him around like a yummy tidbit to see if I’m paying attention?

        Let me know when he’s out of the shower.

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        Mrs. Eyre, no WONDER Grace has been leaving so many 6 packs of beer outside my guest room door. I’m so embarrassed! I’ll have to let Rarmage know that he and I are gonna have to keep it down from here on out.

        Ray can take all the time he wants. The 13th will never let us down, you know that! And I am so going to enjoy getting to slap and spank Simon Woods …

        … speaking of which, spanking has actually never has made it onto Mr. Bryan’s and my roster. Probably because we’ve never had a bed to tie either of us to, what with how tired we get out in the woods, the mud pit, the barn, the creek, the beach, the back pasture, the front pasture, and so on. I do have it on good authority (see: some very giddy friends/ticket holders that I am so jealous of right now) that Mr. Byran is doing a music fest in Louisiana this weekend. Considering how cajun cooking works, I think his punishment will be me slipping a little extra Slap Ya Mama spice into his bowl of jamabalaya and “accidentally” running out of beer when his mouth is literally on fire.

        Question: How did poms enter into this fray? I was wondering that the other day but was too occupied to ask.

        Hmmm? Sorry? What were we saying? Oh, EsCon, you’re here – how lovely. Could you pass me that loofah?

        Now that we know what you are craving in there, ProBeer, yell yourself hoarse. Just glad your needs are being met at Thornfield, that is our motto.

        Poms – they are the beasts that pull the chainsawed half-citroen used to ride into battle when we crumpets go to war. When the half-citroen chariot is not in use, the Poms frolic in the lavender fields and generally keep TommyannE entertained… well, we we are not keeping him entertained. They are also the official mascot of Thornfield who run interference with Cumby’s errant hedgehogs and show CHarms’ penguins were the litter-boxes are. They are also supposed to welcome the dragonflies home when they have been dispatched to swarm our precious TommyannE from blunders on the rare occasion we let him leave Thornfield grounds.

        Clears everything right up, doesn’t it?

        Ladies:

        I just popped by to wave at PMBeer (*waves at Beer*).

        I’d also like to say that looking at this patch of thread has given me an outsider’s perspective on our shenanigans. Fanfic has nothing on us.

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        Hi Fanty! *waves back*.

        We really do bring the A-game when it comes to fanfic, don’t we? And with bonus proper grammar, multi-syllable vocabulary and varied literary references. Like we’re all a bunch of hot bookworms or something. ;)

    I love Tom… My God… He looks so hot with black hair… :D

    He’ll be at Cannes, he told some fangirl on tumblr that stalked him all the way to Paris that he’d be at Cannes from Friday to Sunday.

    Really Hiddles, why don’t you just draw those crazy girls a roadmap to your house?

    He’s been going on about his future children lately in interviews (fb q&a, flaunt, bafta interview), wonder if he’s getting to be like bennycumbercrunch now? He sounds hormonal, lol.

    I’m down with Hayley/Tom.

    Sad but true, I’ve been trying to avoid it BUT I admit… I am a dragonfly (hangs head in shame). I can no longer deny it since I had a sex dream about Tom last week…ooops! How did that happen? Now I look at him a little bit differently! Kaiser, I agree with you about the kissing…sigh.

    Oh mylanta, he is working my shit with that long hair.

    Well! I see the Dragonfly King is Top Dog around here again!

    • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

      I still feel his failure to congratulate his Hollow Crown colleagues on their BAFTAs was in very poor form.

      • j.eyre says:

        Yes, this slight has not been forgotten. We are still hoping for an answer as to why he was too busy eating dryer lint for 35 cents a day to tell his Falstaff he deserved the bloody trophy.

      • flower says:

        Agree. He could have at least said something. I remember when he lost that orange Bafta award to that guy from the projects (in England I guess they call them council estates), Tom had the biggest pout on his face at the afterparty. Like Loki level pout. He does not like to lose, he may try to hide it with his manners, but he is a fierce competitor, you can tell.

      • T.Fanty says:

        @ Miss Eyre;

        He was too poor to have access to a dryer. The poor thing had to wash his clothes in the back alley with a scrubbing board and a mangle.

      • LilyRose says:

        Wait… does Ben Whishaw have a twitter account? I must check it out!

      • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

        Ben Whishaw does not have Twitter, but everyone else even marginally involved in Hollow Crown congratulated him and Simon Russell Beale on their awards– even Haley Atwell offered her congratulations, and she wasn’t in HC.

        Hiddles’s silence was deafening. Even when the Hollow Crown fans prodded him on it.

        Nothing wrong with wanting to win, but I honestly think his manners are often pretty superficial.

      • j.eyre says:

        However, to be fair – Simon Russell Beale does not have a twitter either so any praise heaped in the twitterverse would have been for show alone. Proper congrats would have been executed with a phone call.

        And I think the whole “no dryer” thing was a ruse to let him hang his cod pieces on Thornfileds clotheslines.

      • LilyRose says:

        @ Miss Eyre- that’s what I would assume too. Maybe it was a phone call type of congratulations. He did attend Whishaw’s opening night thing a few months back. I miss The Hour and “Freddayyy”.

        I get the feeling that he is probably moving toward keeping his twitter for his charity work and benign little updates here and there.

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        @Crumpets/Mrs. Eyre – benefit of the doubt: maybe he congratulated Ben Whishaw in person and didn’t feel the need to say anything on twitter?

      • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

        You see, I don’t agree that a tweet of Congratilations would be “just for show.” What does that even mean? Twitter isn’t a private message– it is a declaration to the community and ones colleagues as to what your feelings a really are– and a visible public snub while everyone else is standing up to applaud *is* such a declaration. It is a loud declaration of his lack of generosity, and speaks volumes. If he had posted an insincere congratulations, I would call that “just for show,” but I think his snub was very sincere.

      • DahliaDee says:

        He did RT a congratulatory tweet for “Richard II” winning Best Drama at the BPG awards.

    He is by far the ugliest guy that is featured her on a regular basis. I dont get it.
