Here are some additional photos from Tom Hiddleston’s GQ UK pictorial. We’ve actually got several pieces of Hiddlesnews today, so let’s get to it. Tommy is currently in Australia promoting Thor 2 – I think Chris Hemsworth was supposed to be in Sydney too, but I haven’t seen any photos of him. This morning, Hiddles appeared on a live morning show in Australia. Here’s the video – I like when Tommy tries his Australian accent – it’s actually pretty good! He moves into it with ease too.
Here’s a newish clip of Hiddles and Hemsworth from Thor 2. Is it just me or does Tom look very sickly in this scene?
And finally, Elle UK just released the interview they did with Tom – you can read the full piece here, and here are some highlights:
Do you get asked to do Loki’s voice as a party trick?
Never, actually. And the funny thing is that I don’t feel that I do that much of a voice. I’m never conscious of ‘doing a voice’, apart from just sounding a little bit menacing and mischievous, but I must do – it’s deeper and it hisses and growls.
Does Loki get fan mail?
Truckloads! Last summer, someone rang my doorbell and said there was a delivery for me. I said, ‘I’ll buzz you through’, because there’s a gate in front of my front door. No, he said, I’m in a van and I have to reverse in. I asked why he couldn’t just take it out of the van – and he said ALL of the stuff in it was for me. And it was a big van.
What did you do with it all?
I unpacked it and I read it all. The most flattering thing is when people understand Loki, because he’s a damaged soul. In the story, the way he turned into the God of Mischief is that he was lied to, cast out, abandoned and betrayed as a child. A lot of his reason for wanting to stir up chaos has come from heartbreak, and this resonates with people. They write these long, articulate essays about it. It was intentional that Loki should be an entertaining character but also that there should be a shred of truth. So it’s pleasing to get those letters. And then people send dolls and teddy bears of Loki, and some amazing artwork. I was hopeless as art as a child – it just wasn’t one of the gifts that was bestowed on me. So I’m always amazed by those. There’s some stranger stuff too. People write fan fiction about him and that can get a bit racy!
In period dramas, they say that the authenticity of the costume extends to the underwear. Does Loki have special pants?
It’s not really the same, but in metallic costumes and you want to make sure that, um, things are well protected from the sharpness of the metal. So I’ll wear under-armour jogging trousers. Apart from that, Loki keeps his underwear pretty simple!
First of all, why is everyone talking about Tom’s panties these days? While I find Tom attractive sometimes, I don’t really want to think about him in his underwear. At all. Sorry, Hiddles Girls. As for Tom reading the fan-mail… um… I don’t know what to think. It’s like he’s bragging about how much fan-mail he gets, but I think his objective was trying to honor his fans’ passion(s), right? But why did he have to talk about reading every piece of fan-mail? That takes it to a creepy level.
