Tom Hiddleston asked about his girlfriend, says it’s nothing to write home about

Tom Hiddleston has some new features in several different magazines and they’re all coming out all at once. His Total Film feature came out several days ago, I realize, but I only saw it yesterday because none of you Dragonflies will bother emailing or tweeting me when something new comes in! (PS… Stop doing that and just email or tweet me when you want me to cover something.) So, Tom has a Total Film feature, plus a photoshoot (and maybe an interview?) in F*** Magazine (that’s seriously a magazine?). AND he’s got a feature in British GQ’s November issue. So, I apologize for being disorganized, but I’m including some various new photos of Tom from those mags, plus some new quotes from various sources:

Tom on Twitter: “I started [interacting] because it was nice to have my own voice. But I feel Twitter is kind of like a school noticeboard – some people put up important information, some put up graffiti, some put up jokes and some put up really terrible things. People, on the whole, are really nice to me. But I have been in receipt of astonishing levels of vitriol and hatred. People will say the crudest, most offensive things, and you have to avoid getting into that. You have to be very careful not to be drawn into the riptide of the most destructive and cynical aspects of it.”

On fame: “It is all going to be washed away by the times. So it’s all temporary. I usually just have to treat it with a shrug and a sense of humor and not worry about it too much. I supposer the corollary is you make a public onnection with your audience and that has become what has been known as fame. The thing that keeps you safe is your curiosity.”

Doing Muppets Most Wanted: “I’ve never had more fun on a set in my life. On my first day I’m on camera with Kermit. I actually couldn’t deal with it. I had to say, ‘Can we just stop for a minute?’”

Being one year above Prince William at Eton: “He seems like a genuinely well-adjusted man, but I feel as remote from or as close to him as you do.”

His career from now: “I feel like I’ve just passed ‘Go’ for the first time and it’s time to play. Men are lucky in this game, because between 30 and 50 is when the really juicy parts start to come along and I’m 32, so I feel I’m in a really good spot.”

Interesting aside: For now thought he’s listening to a lot of the National, despite being as he puts it ‘at the vanguard of Daft Punk’s fan base’ and, well, he’d rather not talk about his personal life, despite rumors that he’s dating Jane Arthy, a recond exec who sat alongside him at Andy Murray’s Wimbledon triumph. “I understand the curiosity… I hope when there’s really something to write home about, then I’ll be able to talk.”

On fear: “I have a terrible fear of wasting time. Who knows? Maybe I should relax a bit and working too hard is wasting time. I have a fear of regret. I’m not afraid of death, although I know that sounds odd.”

[From Total Film (via Those British Boys) and GQ UK]

Well, I guess we know now that Jane Arthy isn’t his girlfriend. Do you think Tommy is a hit-it-and-quit-it kind of guy? I was thinking about that at the gym the other day (I let my mind wander during cardio, and often my mind begins going off on tangents like, “I wonder if Tom ever makes the first move when he really likes a girl? I doubt it.”). See, I think he’s so “romantic” that he doesn’t really know how to be a smooth lady’s man and so many ladies end up disappointed in him. Maybe Jane Arthy wanted to be his girlfriend and when she made the first move… hell, I don’t know. I don’t know how to explain this. Maybe he’s a douchebag about women. Wouldn’t THAT disappoint the dragonflies?

    Good lawd!! Not this trick again. Is his PR paying this site to keep him the news or something??

  2. Miss M says:

    “Maybe he’s a douchebag about women. Wouldn’t THAT disappoint the dragonflies?”

    Never! He would be right at the top of my “Favorite Hollywood douches” list!

  3. Oli says:

    He looks like a member of the british royal family, all horsey and longfaced. He could be Prince Charles son.

  4. Sandydc says:

    I’ve got nothing to base this on and I know English dudes are different, but my Gaydar is really pinging here. Just sayin’.

  5. T.Fanty says:

    Holy crap, that first picture is doing things for me. And the last one. And, if we’re being honest, the ones in between. The last one is the look he gives after a particularly interesting night at Thornfield.

    I think TommyAnne probably isn’t shy about letting a lady know he’s interested. I think it’s sustaining that interest that’s probably the issue.

    And if he was dating someone, I’m sure after reading that she’s nothing to write home about, he’s probably quite single now.

  6. Miss Jupitero says:

    I think he is a douche with women. It’s that simple. You don’t sleep with a girl then declare in GQ that she’s nothing to write home about. That is beyond clueless. It is not clumsiness. He knows what he just did.

  7. TheyPromisedMeBeer says:


    But really, credit where credit is due – that’s a good answer for a question like that. And we know I don’t suffer any illusions about the guy, but I also can’t see him as a douchebag, honestly.

    • T.Fanty says:

      I actually agree. For the myraid of accusations we throw TommyAnne’s way, I don’t think this one is applicable. I would imagine that he’s the type to probably be quite upfront with women about where they stand with him.

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        I’d be fine if he said that to her face, in private. And much more as well.

        But in a GQ interview? Ouch.

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        @Fanty: HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Have a microbrew, fresh out the oaken barrel. You like porters, correct?

        @Miss Jupitero – I’m not disagreeing with you, because I can see how you could read what he said as a slam. I’m coming at this with my own personal experience, though. I’ll have people from my hometown/circle o’friends/facebook ask me what’s going on in my dating life. I give the same type of answer Tom gives – there’s not much, because there isn’t anything serious. I may be going on some dates with someone, but I’m not gushing about anyone until we can fart in front of each other. That’s when I know it’s serious.

      • Vesta says:

        @T.Fanty – Wau, the floor is just full of fancy gift wrapping papers here…

        No idea if you see this anymore but T.Fanty – Hope you had the BEST birthday ever *plays Alphaville’s Forever Young* and as a present I give you a bottle of moonshine made in the northern coniferous forest.

    • Sixer says:

      I have many things to criticise him for in those quotes above (he should shut the something up about Twitter and never use the word vitriol; that complete non-thought about curiosity is exactly what makes me gag him so often, etc). But not the girlf comment.

      Instead, I shall purr and turtleneck.

      • T.Fanty says:

        What’s wrong with the twitter quote? And “vitriol” was the exact same word Cumby used in the interview with the window-pane suit. You think they discussed it at the Maligned Posh Boys’Book Club?

      • Sixer says:

        Oh, I don’t know. I’m schizoid when it comes to PuddleTom, you know that. Two things are fingernails on a chalkboard for me in that:

        1) TommyAnne gets some slappings online but never on Twitter, where it is an emesis basin of marriage proposals, declarations of undying love and gifs with rose garlands.

        2) Vitriol is the celebrity nomenclature for any comment that doesn’t involve me reaching for my emesis basin, including the mildest of criticisms. Celebrities should not be allowed to use this word. Ever.


      • jammypants says:

        er, when that ThorTDW twitter account blamed him (not his fault) for promising to post Loki pics last October, people were sending him death threats on Twitter. Vitriol indeed. Also, i’m sure he had a ton of flack for Unicef.

  8. Tati says:

    I doubt he is interested in ladies or men for that matter. I think he is only in love with himself.

  9. Lemanda says:

    Oops. I thought he was much older then 32.

  10. Oli says:

    The reason Tom doesnt have a girlfriend is probably because he is so self absorbed. Its me, with him. Guys like that tend to be bad lovers. I read he has only had one serious girlfriend and the dude is 32 or 33 so that tells its own story.

  11. MissMary says:

    Given the rumors going around about her, she’s either hardcore creepy stanning him and he’s regretting a fling, or it’s FWB and nothing more.

  12. Green Girl says:

    That line about something to write home about…Yeesh. Even if they’re just FWB, who wants to hear that?

    I also get wanting to keep things quiet when you’re just starting a relationship, because I imagine it would be embarrassing to tell every publication how much you luuuuurve someone, but then break up two months later. But surely there’s a halfway point?

    • Miss Jupitero says:

      Exactly. Let’s have some empathy here, even if she is a crazy fan. How about “I’d to maintain a dignified silence on my private life. Relationships need privacy. Someday when something goes to the next level, and that will be a happy time, we can talk.”

      Presto. Point made and nobody is insulted. Any breaking up that needs to happen is an entirely private matter.

  13. ncboudicca says:

    He’s giving off some Peter O’Toole vibes in these pics. I like it.

  14. Lucrezia says:

    I actually read the full quote: “I understand the curiosity … I hope when there’s really something to write home about, then I’ll be able to talk” as meaning “I’m not allowed to talk at the moment … hopefully when I get engaged or married, THEN missus will let me talk about her”.

    In other words, he’s acting under orders, not actually insulting Jane (or whoever) at all. Am I being too kind, or did anyone else read it this way?

    (It’s the kind of thing I can imagine someone saying quite innocently in British-english, but not coming off quite right to readers who happen to be reading in “American”. But then again, I’m reading in “Australian”, so I’m not 100% sure I’m not cutting him too much slack here.)

    • T.Fanty says:

      I think he’s just saying that when he’s in a serious relationship, we’ll know. Until then, it’s nobody’s business. And given his fans’ hysteria, I think that’s a fair reaction. I don’t imagine it’s fair to put someone he’s casually dating through the wringer if he’s not willing to commit to them.

      I assume it must be like having a gang of really gossipy and over-analytical friends. There’s a joyful aimlessness in a casual relationship (or the early days of a serious one) that some people completely destroy by thinking about it too much. I wouldn’t want to discuss whether I was serious about someone publicly if I hadn’t discussed it privately.

      • tubular_trekkie says:

        Yes. I think so too.

        I also think he was possibly trying to be diplomatic. It must be kind of awkward to be in a situation where *any* female companion he is seen with will automatically be labelled as his *girlfriend*, regardless of the nature or seriousness of the relationship. A problem possibly made worse *if* this Jane Arthy lady was, er, more than happy to be named as such whilst he saw it a bit differently…

        Once again surprised that some people see this comment as evidence that he’s a douche. Based on what exactly? It’s not like we *know* all the details of what happened.

      • Mary-Rose says:

        I agree with Fanty. It’s just TommyAnne’s way of saying that if he was in a serious relationship then he’ll talk.
        He’s never had that problem with Susannah so I don’t think it the he-doesn’t-want-to-upset-the-fangirls
        Also if he was dating her, the relationship isn’t exactly new either.
        It just goes to prove you don’t annoy TommyAnne and get away with it

      • Mary-Rose says:

        Okay Girlies, I’ve had a peak at DL and they are still harpering on about the Jane spotting with TommyAnne at the weekend. The story is so full of holes it’s funny. What do you all. Think?

      • T.Fanty says:

        Oh, I don’t have a spare week to get sucked into that site. I go there to cross-reference one of our favored posts and then get distracted by the man who wants to leave his life partner because he’s losing hair or whether someone’s gym is a sexual hotbed. It’s all too much stimuli. Although I do enjoy watching the fangirls getting slapped down by the regular DL boys.

    • Sixer says:

      I’m reading British and I think either seem likely.

    • browniecakes says:

      I have two ideas on this: The British GQ interviewer didn’t query TH on Arthy directly – just asked something generic like, ‘are you dating anyone’? And Tom answered and now looks like a douche. The interviewer stuck in the Arthy part later.
      I also think Arthy was not invited to Wimbledon by him, just like she has not been invited to any public event with him since. Arthy won the Wimbeldon seating lottery, and flirted with TH, like I would, like crazy. She chatted up up the Elle lady. That tweet coupled with a lucky pap photo – boom, they’re a couple. I don’t see FWB because first part of that is Friends. No friends here.

      • cowgirlredd says:

        i think you have a good point there. but also, she could have been a ‘date’ – someone new-ish, but that you’re not totally sure about, or someone a friend set him up with – something like that.

        i also wonder if Luke somehow wormed the phrasing/her name in there – most people’s PR has to pass off on articles before they’re published so they can edit out the ‘off-brand’ stuff – the things they don’t want the public to see. maybe Lurky Luke wanted to drum up exactly this – thread upon thread about his personal life that he pretends to not want to discuss.

        or she really was kinda icky and he decided to just go for it – but it does seem a little ‘off-brand’ for him to be that direct about one person in particular.

    • Persephone says:

      I’m reading it in ‘Australian English’ as well and read “when there’s really something to write home about” as when there’s a big announcement or change in the relationship not as she’s nothing to write home about.

  15. Sixer says:

    This article is missing my (spitting in spiteful fury) favourite TommyAnne quote of the week (from a 5 minute Q&A thing he did):

    “How does fame feel?”

    “Unexceptional. I’m inspired by people who do monumental things.”

    This almost negates the turtleneck.

  16. YuYa says:

    He is just not sexy in any way. He looks like someone who could be a call center manager at an insurance company.

  17. HiHa says:

    My Vanila ice crush…Im in to him now,Bye Sean Connery!

  18. bets says:

    I hate his lollipop head look. Far too thin. can’t take him seriously I’d rather the gorgeous Tom Mison. Celebitchy needs to get onto him.

  19. Vesta says:

    Poor PuddleTom, I’m too busy today for you, have to run (and you had your day already), but I must say not bad pictures, not bad at all. So cute!

    But is that that burgundy turtleneck trying to strangle you? Its grasp looks very aggressive…

  20. Hello Kitty says:

    Stumbled across this and thought the Dragonflies would get some lolz out of it.

  21. shw says:

    I love Hiddles, so don’t get me wrong. But after staring at these pictures for oooh.. a while. I’ve realised that he reminds me of Odo from Star Trek DS9.
    A sexy Odo.

  22. junegorilla says:

    Why is he famous? No idea who he is other than the gossip bits about him being a name dropper.

  23. Miss M says:

    Doing the moderation dance: I am always in moderation, always in moderation! M-O-D…

  24. Algernon says:

    What if Tom Hiddleston is neither a shrinking violet or a douchebag? What if he’s just a dude who has sex and doesn’t make a big deal out of it? SCANDALOUS.

    Edit: That is the shortest answer he’s ever given about anything, ever.

  25. Maureen says:

    There’s always been something about Tom that strikes me as seeming very nice, very charming on the surface but will then become very spiteful and passive-aggressive over any perceived slight. His comment re: dating Jane struck me more as a spiteful thing said by a man who’s been spurned than the other way around.

    • Miss Melissa says:

      Yes, or pissed off. See my comment above.

      • Maureen says:

        I did, and I agree totally. Very passive-aggressive, very spiteful. He seems like he could be stalke-rish, too. I honestly don’t now much about him, but just going by personality and a few things I’ve read here. I don’t think he takes rejection well…at all. That whole hand-holding incident at the game smacked of a guy way too excited to be with a girl…like he doesn’t get the chance often…and trying to move way too fast…and maybe wanted something more but she ran.

  26. drea says:

    That’s not exactly a nice thing to say about someone, considering he brought the Jane person to Wimbledon and he knows there are pictures of her all over his arm. But well, even if I were to believe only 20% of the things written about his dating habits on message boards and forums, I’d still think he was a bit of a dog.

    On a different note, it’s good to see that Luke is getting him a lot of interview space. I wonder if all this talking will actually help him get jobs. I suspect that he’s pretty much saturated his core market, and these interviews serve only to feed the existing fandom but aren’t really garnering him any new attention. Maybe that Jarmusch film will get other kinds of people interested in him.

  27. theredone says:

    Is it just me or does he remind anyone else of skinnier, less sexy and budget version of Michael Fassbender?

    • drea says:

      Well, not me. Fassy has a raw, masculine look and Hiddles usually comes off as refined and a little bit fragile.

      You know who Hiddles reminds me of (or at least who I think he’s kinda going to grow old like)? Frank Gorshin, the Riddler in the original Batman.

  28. flower says:

    That is so lame Tom, lol. Wonder what his fwb thought?

  29. CocoaPuffs says:

    Either way if I was bedding Tom and he said I was nothing to write about I’d cry for about 5 seconds and then continue to sleep with him. It’s nothing to give up the D over.

    • Mary-Rose says:

      I’m the opposite. If he did that to me , he’d have no balls to shag with. I have respect for myself and wouldn’t lower them because of a celebrity (even TommyAnne)

    • Bitca says:

      His douche is smelling to high heaven!

      Whether the woman companion’s a platonic friend/tennis fanatic he knew would enjoy coveted seats at the game, a wanna-be GF, a FwB, or is gay: “Nothing to write home about” is a major, inconsiderate d-bag diss.

      Gotta agree w/the flower-chicks above & below. If a friend, casual, or trusted ex lover referred to me that way… Hope I wouldn’t stick around. My self-esteem has taken enough hard blows during my lifetime. In the old days, used his precise expression to describe myself. With 50 on the horizon, cannot help looking back & thinking “life’s too short for men like that”—& ya know?

      We’re all worth writing home about… But most actors & other performers are WAY too self-involved to write home about anybody but themselves.

  30. browniecakes says:

    Quote on TH: ‘his relationships are measured in months not years’. Quote from TH: “I can’t be a proper boyfriend right now’. He mentions grandkids in two recent interviews. Hmm.
    Kaiser, a daily post on TH is fine with me. TH gives content like no other.

  31. Caroline says:

    When Tom is into someone he can become pretty intense. But that’s when HE is into them. He is not into Jane. She is more into him than he is with her. He does have this underlying aggression to him.

    • flower says:

      Agree. When he was with susannah you could tell that he was 100 percent into her. With Jane, nope.

    • Flower says:

      Adding: There is a pic of him and Susannah somewhere where he is sitting across from her, his legs on either side of her’s with his hands on her upper thighs looking totally into her.

      So different than that shot of him and Jane, hilarious.

      I told someone today about what Tom said in that interview, not using any names or even giving them a backstory. Response: what a douche to say that, that girl needs to dump him.

      Nah I don’t think Jane will, she loves the fact that she gets to shag TH, rumor is she tells everyone at her work about it. I bet after TH finally leaves her in the garbage bin, some tea will spill out and flow onto the internet.

      • Mary-Rose says:

        Urgh! Why does he always give cryptic answers instead of straight forward one?
        He could of said “we’re just friends for now but who knows”
        “Yes I have a girlfriend but I prefer not to talk about it ”
        “I’m single at the moment but who knows what will happen”
        Hell! why I’m I doing creepy Luke’s job? TommyAnne knew this question would come up eventually so he’s had plenty of time to prep.
        “Nothing to write home about” clearly means that. Looking back at previous threads , he supposed to have started seeing her in may. That’s 4/5 months, enough time to know if you want to date someone permently.

      • Mary-Rose says:

        And of he uses any of my examples, I want him to fund a CB party here as payment.

  32. Naddie says:

    I think he bangs a lot, with lots of women, but he’s also social inept and says really stupid things because of that. It’s like he’s all shy and needy, and needy people can be quite self-centred. Or maybe he’s a major asshole and I like him too much to see it.

  33. Caroline says:

    It’s really hard to know what really went on between him and Jane. I still am going to give him the benefit of the doubt because I still feel he is generally a decent guy. He is not perfect and makes mistakes and doesn’t always make good decisions. Even regarding decisions about who he chooses to date or sleep with.

  34. Catriona says:

    Oh my lord, the first comments. :-/ I don’t work for the PR team of any member of Tumblr’s Holy Trinity BUT I do genuinely love that they are in the news and I love that Celebitchy feeds my addiction to them. :) HONEST to God, I am not being paid to say this, Fassbender is my bedwarmer so seeing that there are updates on him and Hiddles and Cumby on this site (since a lot of other sites don’t even bother with them) are what make my day. :) Please dont listen to the haters and the complainers, Kaiser! Your articles are what make my day so much bette and I love that we (you, T. Fanty, Eve, Anna, j. eyre, Miss M, Sixer, Lindy79 and the rest of the crew) have the same taste in men. You don’t know me but I LOVE reading your discussions and the love you show each other in your bedroom antics during either Hiddles, Cumby’s or Fassbender posts. :) Yeah. I am a geek for the Holy Trinity and Celebitchy’s regulars, just wanted to show some love. :-)

  35. Ari says:

    I feel like he is just saying he might just be seeing her and its not much of a relationship yet – nothing douchey about that – its honest.

    • Mary-Rose says:

      Of course he’s not seeing her.if he was it isn’t exactly a new relationship so he’d know by now if its going to be serious or not .
      People want to have this romantic notion of him being the perfect boyfriend but from the sounds of it he has ‘issues’ probably due from his parents divorce (men seem to suffer more I’ve read)
      I think he’ll marry later in life when his career isn’t so new and ‘issues’ delt with
      TommyAnne isn’t the type to shy away, remember Susannah was always mentioned in every other sentence until they broke up.
      If he really likes Jane , he wouldn’t give a hoot what people say and will ride the storm. He hasn’t , what does that tell you?

  36. Helvetica says:

    The coat in the 4th pic is AMAZING. Great material, great cut, very good style. And he has the body to wear those clothes.

  37. TVXQsam says:

    Even though I am curious about his love life, still I’m not YET in the right place to judge his relationship with Jane. As long as Tom doesn’t agrees on revealing his private life, I’m not going to think anything about it. Maybe I’ll just leave it behind and stay focus on his future projects cause I love the way he acts onscreen. Plus, I enjoy every wisdom he spreads. :)

  38. Amanda says:

    I like him more now, because The National is the greatest band on the planet right now!

  39. Van says:

    Okay, let’s look at the quote Tom actually made: “I understand the curiosity… I hope when there’s really something to write home about, then I’ll be able to talk.”

    The journalist brought up Jane Arthy, not him. She probably wasn’t even discussed in the interview at all! He is just talking about his love life in general, which could mean many things. Like it could mean that he and Arthy aren’t serious, and he just wants to keep it private, hence how “he’d rather not talk about his personal life”. It could also mean that they aren’t (or never have been) together.

    I don’t see him saying anything about “a girlfriend”, as it mentions in the headline of this post. You guys are just suspecting he has one because of the rumors.

  40. bets says:

    Hiddleston reminds me of Danny Kaye.

  41. icerose says:

    The GQ artcle was actually quite good but if you read it it does not give you the phrasing of how the question was actually asked. All he seems to be saying nicely is that he understands people curiosity but he has no actual news on any relationship. It may not even relate to Jane or it just might mean their relationship is not at a stage where he feels like sharing it publically. I actually like it that she has not gone public on it. He cannot really win. People will always judge him on whatever he says. People can witter on about it as much as they like but ultimately the only people who really need to be concerned by what he says are the women he is dating.

    • jammypants says:

      It amuses me how personal people take that statement he made.

    • Mary-Rose says:

      I think after 5 months anybody would know if they are interested romantically in someone.
      It’s like the ‘he’s. just not that into you’ the Scarlett and Bradley couple

    • Mary-Rose says:

      To be fair he has known her for a long while. He’d know by now if he’s interested in her romantically.
      The thing with TommAnne is that he doesn’t give straight forward answers that would save him aggro in the reprocussion in the future.
      He’s a bright man and answers like this annoy me because sometimes I think he takes us as fools.
      I for one don’t really give a damn what he does in his private life but don’t play the bright man and give a naive like answers (this is a general thing)

      • jammypants says:

        How is that a naive answer? It’s bright and clear to me. There literally may be nothing going on romantically for him. And the entire Jane Arthy thing is blown up by the media and fangirls. To me, he’s just not giving people what they want: confirmation here and there about his personal life. People got angry with that. It’s funny how some commenters got pissy saying he should have just given a straight answer. Then that would confirm a speculation that’s been floating around. There is no win. All people have on the guy is tea, but no one really knows if anything is true. So anything he says, people just project their feelings into his statements and either love or hate him for them. At the end of the day, no one knows him. I guess it’s a gossip site and people can have fun gossiping (the hilarious Thornfield convos are fun to read) but some women here act like hurt ex-lovers (again all projection since we literally know nothing about his private life, much as some people think they’ve figure him all out).

        He’s so harmless that the amount of “vitriol” (haha sory had to quote him) is actually alarming. People like Alec Baldwin I will never understand. He’s actually hurt women. He’s racist and sexist. The list goes on.

        I think women here try to find any little reason to hate Hiddleston. Of all celebrities to hate on, he’s the most surprising because of the hate he gets. Sometimes I read comments like, “I’m having a rough day” or “I’m pissy today” so there’s just loads of projection, reading into things too much and taking it out on your imaginary boyfriend/ex-lover.

        Anyway, I wish him all the best. You ladies have a nice day and enjoy your tea.

        Here’s a famous saying I’d like to leave here. Feel free to comment on this bc gossip is nothing but negativity and some people seem to get their energy and enjoyment out of it and that’s how they spend their day:

        “Stupid people talk about people. Average people talk about events. Intelligent people talk about ideas.”

        So, you’re stupid too, right? Just like the rest of us.

      • Janine says:

        @Tish LOL that’s what I thought.

        And @jammypants it’s a gossip site, you have to accept there’s going to be criticism on here. If you don’t like it find a fansite instead. There’s plenty of fawning going on over at ONTD.

      • Mary-Rose says:

        Is jammy from DL or something? All I was saying is that TommyAnne could of saved himself a lot of aggravation for himself by just giving a straight forward answer. I also think its unfair that Jane gets all the nuts (like being stalked on DL) because TommyAnne won’t get the unwanted attention away from her.
        He’s a good man and a great actor but as a member of the human race, he can be stupid sometimes in manner.
        And before you remark. No I haven’t commented on DL and No I didn’t get the thread taken off

      • jammypants says:

        haha I suppose so. I sometimes remind myself this is a gossip site. As soon as I posted that, I thought, well, I did comment on a gossip column. I guess that includes me.

        Nah I’m actually not a user anywhere else. DL is too confusing to even use. Terrible design.

      • Janine says:

        @Mary-Rose I agree, he’s given a several interviews over the last few months and could’ve commented that he was single/not attached a while ago, not make such a passive-aggressive comment in a high profile publication like GQ. I’m sure she’s gone through enough already by being dumped (probably straight after that Wimbledon pic appeared), let alone since.

        @jammypants I’m glad you weren’t offended by our comments. I’ve also heard that the more intelligent you are the more gossip you need to hear LOL!

        You’re right DL is an old school site and not easy to navigate, but I don’t think there’s any conspiracy in the threads disappearing, that’s always happening usually because they have offensive comments. It’s probably the regulars getting them removed because they’re always complaining that fangirls have invaded the threads.

    oh and the outfits are way to lord of the manor. The look on his face says it all. He needs to get back into leather and nipple hugging t shirts

    In the meanwhile, another thread about TH was blocked/deleted at DataLounge.
    The one called “Loki”.
    I’m starting to think there’s either Arthy behind or his tumblr fangirls angry at the critics about the GQ article.

    • Mary-Rose says:

      Really? Last time I looked on there for a laugh, they were all defending her and were critersizing TommAnne. Apart from the one loon who always takes things the wrong way. (Glad they don’t come on here) but even though DL can be strange , there’s nothing that hasn’t been said on here.
      TommyAnne could of stopped this Jane talk by putting end to rumours but sometimes our boy likes a good scandle that keeps him in the spotlight . Even if poor Jane has now been brought into it.

    • mena says:

      LOL, I was reading that thread when it happened! I was like WTF? Not AGAIN!

      If anyone got that thread deleted, I think it was JA or her defenders. The DLers were for sure giving TH a hard time about his GQ quote, but I wouldn’t say they were defending JA. DL has been notoriously harsh on JA, pretty much calling her out on all her desperate clinginess since the get go. After the GQ smackdown, there were a few posts on that DL thread that, IMO, looked like they were fishing for sympathy for JA, but it wasn’t happening.

      Right before that thread got deleted, there were a few posts made that were getting feistier in their defense of JA – but still no f*cks were given.

      I think JA/her defenders were not getting the sympathy they wanted, so they threw a tantrum and got the thread deleted.

    Pretty soon his hairline is going to start at his neck. Good lawd, but he’s bad looking.

  45. Flower says:

    Even though it’s fun to blame Luke and his octopus reach, and Jane and her clingy reach…

    My theory about the DL threads being removed: they only want gossip about actors and actresses who are gay or rumored to be gay (after all it is a gay board for gay gossip so not surprised if they want to keep it that way). For example, the Renner threads, even though all the chatter/insults against his baby mama none of them have yet been purged. Renner has gay rumors about him and is rumored to have a boyfriend.

    If Tom was gay or had somewhat solid rumors of him swinging that way, those threads would still be there.

    • Mary-Rose says:

      But they also talk about crumby on there…. A lot and we all know he’s certainly not gay or bi.
      There was hints that TommyAnne is though. Or maybe it’s the person who disguises himself as different people and claim to have a friend that knows TommyAnne.
      DL is very complicated to use and people always have justify themselves if they want to post otherwise there’s a huge argument .
      Even though it can be funny. I prefer to post here as apart from being sane, I love the banter
