Alright, here are some assorted Tom Hiddleston stories and videos. I’ve just given in – I’m probably going to cover Tom every day this week. To be fair, Thor 2 is going to come out this week, so there’s a reason for Tommy’s media blitz (just as there was a reason for the Cumberbatch oversaturation a few weeks ago). Let’s go through the list of Tommy things:
First, there is this absolutely adorable Moviefone promo Tom did with kids. I have to wonder which Hiddlestoner mom agreed to have their child pushed by Tommy. Did the mom have to sign a release?!
Second thing, Tom appeared on Chelsea Lately…? Two nights ago, or maybe last night. He talked about how much he weighs (180 pounds), whether there will be a Loki spin-off movie (“I don’t know about that. We’ll have to wait and see.”), and how he auditioned to play Thor originally and how he put on 18 pounds and was “like seven percent body fat.”
Third, video of Tommy on the red carpet in LA. He said that working with Kermit was the height of his career: “It was amazing. I got completely starstruck. I have to tell you, I have peaked! It’s all downhill from here. I will never such a juicy gig again!” He also talks about dancing and how much he loves to dance dance dance.
And finally, Tom has a new interview with USA Today, which you can read here. Apparently, his mother’s favorite role amongst his filmography is his part in War Horse. His mum doesn’t care for Loki, he says: “When Loki’s having a good time, my sisters recognize me being mischievous when I was a kid, and they find that very amusing… Mom rolled her eyes at my exhibitionism mostly, which I find really endearing.” Is Tommy a mummy’s boy? That might explain some things. I already figured out that he has daddy issues, so add another layer on to the Oedipus Hiddleston.
PS… I think Tommy stole/copied big brother Cumberbatch’s windowpane suit.
