Tom Hiddleston & Tilda Swinton, adorable in Cannes: who would you rather?

As I previewed yesterday, Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton are in Cannes today to promote their vampire movie Only Lovers Left Alive. Hiddles plays a goth-y rocker/vampire in love with Tilda’s ageless vampire. I don’t think that’s the only thing happening with the plot, though, because the film is directed by Jim Jarmusch and John Hurt and Mia Wasikowska figure into the story too. What I do know is that part of the story is a love affair between Hiddles and Tilda, because OF COURSE. You can read more about the film here. It was picked up by Sony Classics, so it will get some sort of (limited) release.

Anyway, these are some lovely photos from today’s Cannes photocall. I bet this film cost about $50 to make, so it’s kind of funny to see the promotion get the Cannes treatment. Tilda looks amazing, as always, and I love her outfit. I’m not so sure what I think of Tom here. From the neck up, he’s standard Tom – handsome, boyish, sweet-looking. The three-piece suit in a shocking shade of blue…? Not so great. I almost wish he had gone more low-key for the photocall – a nice pair of slacks and a light-colored button down and that’s it.

Hiddles did tweet something funny yesterday: “No aeroplanes left at Heathrow. No trains from St Pancras. I am travelling to Cannes by night. By land and sea. Like a vampire.”

Also, my answer to the question of “who would I rather?” is “both”.

    Is it just me or do they really look like brother and sister?

  2. Lemony says:

    i agree, I want BOTH of them.

  3. ncboudicca says:

    Tilda looks AWESOME…but I’m not as interested in TommyannE’s suit as much as I am what is evident in his pants.

    Time to prepare for an assault on Thornfield. You can’t hide that from the world, ladies!

  4. Sarah says:

    Who would I rather? Both. And I’m straight,LOL!

  5. Andrea says:

    OMG they play lovers? I am so on that.

    They both look great here and together.

  6. Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

    He’s going commando– again! Crotchshot alert!

    Hate the suit, but I am glad to see everyone there.

    I will always hit Tilda.

  7. flower says:

    That blue suit hides nothing hiddles… lol.

  8. Sumodo1 says:

    Well, it looks like cuffed trousers are back–I loved them in the 1970s. Tilda the Trendsetter!

  9. kronster says:

    What the hell is with his face? Stayed too much under the sun, eh?

    *sighs* I miss him with black hair. This color is just not doing it for me.

  10. lady mary. says:

    tilda wore that suit better than hiddle ,team TILDA hands down,i hope this is for photocall ,and tilda wears a mind boggling futuristic gown

  11. Miss M says:

    Tom, darling, Don’t listen to the amateur dragonflies… You look great! Muah in your neck.

  12. LindyLou says:

    Holy crap! Dude is packing! (sorry if I’m late to the Tom H appreciation party!) Wowza!

  13. Bread and Circuses says:

    I never would have considered Tom and Tilda as a potentially hot romantic pairing in a movie.

    But holy crap, they would be. Methinks I will have to see this.

  14. TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

    Tom had me at the suit and lost me at the pretentious tweet. Tilda wins (but actually, all of us are the winners here).

    • Ponytail says:

      It was a nightmare day for travel yesterday. There was a plane on fire at Heathrow, my friend’s train was delayed becuase there was a fire on the line and then the replacement bus caught on fire too. Her 9 hour journey took 25 hours… I’m just glad some people were able to make fun of the whole thing, I’d have exploded in frustration if my travel had been that disrupted – my Tweets would have just been swear words!

  15. Grant says:

    I love, love, love the color of his suit. With the water in the background, I bet his eyes just popped.

  16. Anna says:

    HOLY MOTHER OF… Who can look at the color of the suit when there’s such magic happening in the left pant-leg! I need to hit that RIGHT NOW.

  17. Anna says:

    Also – he is handsome and I love him and the suit has grown on me in the last 10 min. So yeah, it’s definitely team Thor&Loki for me. I just came back from STID and while John Harrison (ahem; & Sherlock too) is good, he is not Thorki-good.

  18. Emily says:

    I love his suit. I hope it’s a sign that men’s clothing is going to become interesting. And I’d love to romp around Paris with them non-sexually. I’m not attracted to women and I’m not attracted to Tom Hiddleston, either — he seems like he’d be a good friend, though.

  19. Ginger says:

    My answer is BOTH as well! And I agree with the ladies here…I’m not looking at the color of his suit. AHEM!!! Anyway, holy crap! They are holding hands…I’ve died and gone to some strange Cannes filled heaven.

  20. Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

    I am reading more and more articles about Tilda. Good God this woman is beautiful. O.O

    Seriously, it makes my teeth hurt just looking at her hair blowing around like that. Anyone here have smelling salts an a fainting couch?

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Hello, Crumpets,

      Thornfield is usually full to bursting with smelling salts & fainting couches! You know there are always at least two bitches coming down with the vapours.

      But since the latest Thornfield orgy began Thursday night, it’s possible that supplies are running low. Miss Eyre will need to take stock of her inventory, if we can get her out of the Disco Shower.

    • ncboudicca says:

      Oh my Goddess, I just saw some photos of the premiere. Her hair is so…she can’t be human, it’s divine. Miley Cyrus only wishes her hair could do this. Stunning.

  21. flower says:

    Tilda is amazing. I noticed that a few of the bitter little girls on tumblr are giving her a hard time for holding Tom’s hand, petty monsters.

  22. linlin says:

    I adore Tilda Swinton, but strangely enough she is not one of those women who I would consider going gay for. I kind of just want to admire her from afar.

  23. allons-y alonso says:

    I think Hiddleston has caught wind of the whole ‘a tailored suit is to women what lingerie is to men’ A nicely tailored 3 piece blue suit. Hello, sailor!

  24. magpie says:

    Thank you Tilda for making things beautiful. Never saw the attraction in this man until I saw him next to you.

  25. MissMary says:

    Both of them. Like a screen door in a hurricane.

    I ship them so hard… I know he’s single and not looking for anything serious and she’s apparently poly or open so please? Pretty please with fabulous cheek bones and three piece suits?

  26. dunzo says:

    None of them. I don’t get the appeal of Hiddles, and, although I like Tilda, I wouldn’t bang her.

  27. Atlanta says:

    how come they look the same age? she must be 20 years older. he seems to be ageing a lot?

  28. Agitation says:


    So I’m on freaking tumblr, right, and why the fk do I read this post saying some crazy broad jumped on Tom at Cannes and it took three cops to get her off him?

  29. dasha says:

    There is some story going around in fandom that some fan jumped Tom at the premiere and cops had to pull her off him? Did you guys hear about this?

    Where was his right hand man/bulldog publicist/babysitter Luke when this happened?

    One day, some fan is going to kidnap that Hiddle and he’ll end up chained under a motel room sink. He is just too nice and he gives those inane girls too much.

  30. GoodCapon says:

    Tom’s orangey makeup is in full display in the second photo.

    I think he looks a lot better with a stubble or a beard, without them it ages him a bit.

    • ds says:

      Yes! I think he looks his best when he let’s his hair and beard grow a bit. I love a good guy in a good suit; but would really like to see this guy wear some jeans or just a shirt… Something is off I just can’t put my finger on it.

  31. MissThing says:

    the suit. the color. the waistcoat. the phone (cough cough). the everything.

    I think not only is he getting too much sun, that he is the type to not tan well, but it really brings out his scars. Scars do not tan. Maybe this is why he uses so much foundation when normally prepped?

    Either way, I’d still climb that tree.

  32. Janet says:

    I know Swinton has a lot of devoted fans on here but I just can’t with this woman. Androgynous scarecrows simply are not my type. She looks like David Bowie in drag to me.

  33. Mew says:

    Once you see it, you can’t remove your eyes from it. O.O

  34. Marta says:

    Tom Hiddleston look like younger Liam Neeson, Tilda is a queen as usualy.

  35. Dedrie says:

    Vampiress Katherine Mathilda “Tilda” Swinton ignores direct sunlight, wood stakes, a big bonfire and silver guillotines, bullets and is immune to Sangue Debolezza as she is of the ancient Anglo-Scot family who can trace their ancestors to the Middle Ages and is a vegetarian as well.

    From; So you want to know how to kill a vampire. Hopefully this is you being pro-active just in case you run into a vampire one day that needs killing. Otherwise this likely means that there is a vampire outside of your door and this is your last ditch attempt to survive and/or keep your soul. If this is the case, you’re probably screwed, but I’ll try to help you out anyway.

  36. skuddles says:

    I love how Tilda’s hair is totally doing its own thing here. Very untamed and lioness-like.

  37. RHONYC says:

    that’s a ridiculous question, i mean have you SEEN ‘Female Perversions’???

    yowsa! :-P

  38. Mia says:

    I’d definitely rather do Tilda, she always cuts such an impressive figure in a suit (in “Constantine” she looked ridiculously hot in a suit). Not to mention that I really don’t think Tom is attractive at all. But I do love the color of this suit. His suits always look very well tailored and have been in some interesting colors and fabrics.

  39. I Choose Me says:

    Both of course and oh my. *gets hypnotized by teh bulge*

    Want to see some terribly young nd hot Tilda & Seam Bean? Check out Derek Jarmans “Caravaggio”. Gorgeous.
