Tom Hiddleston’s love interest in ‘High Rise’ will be Sienna Miller: yay or nay?

hiddles1

You ladies (and perhaps a few gentlemen) have been begging for a Tom Hiddleston story, so here you go. It’s not that I’m trying to deny the Dragonflies their allotment of Hiddleswonderment, it’s just that he’s gone dark for the most part this year. He’s done a handful of events, we had some pics of him on the set of Crimson Peak (or whatever it’s called now), and that’s it. He has barely tweeted, he only gave, like, two interviews for OLLA, and he seems to not want so much attention these days. Just let him rest! He’ll be back to Dancing Tommy in no time, I’m sure.

So, since I’m doing the Dragonfly Allotment, let’s really talk about what he’s got going on. Crimson Peak wrapped over the weekend, or so I’ve heard, so Tommy probably is back in London now after his relatively quiet time in Toronto. Next up for Tom: High Rise. He films that this summer, and THR says production begins in July in Belfast. THR just announced that two more actors have joined the cast: Jeremy Irons and Sienna Miller. Irons will play the architect, Hiddles plays “a young doctor seduced by the high-rise’s promise” and Sienna plays Irons’ assistant who gets pursued by Hiddles. Well, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

Let’s just start the hookup rumors now – Sienna and Tommy!!! I’ve been saying for a while that Sienna’s wildness cannot be contained for much longer. She’s already back to looking wasted at Oscar parties and nights on the town with Cara Delevingne. I would kind of love it if Tommy and Sienna happened – it would be so scandalous and the Dragonflies would FREAK.

Also, there’s this cute video that’s been making the rounds. Wait until the end.

    Ugh. She’s loathsome.
    That’s all I’ve got.

  2. fairyvexed says:

    She doesn’t have enough meat on her bones for him.

  3. GeeMoney says:

    Oh no… I hope that Sienna doesn’t try and get her claws into him. The dragonfly backlash would be EPIC if that happened.

  4. Lilacflowers says:

    Of course, just as I have to get ready to go for work, I’m going to miss all the fun. But I’ve already said how excited I am about the pairing with Jeremy Irons in the film. Not sure what Miller can do as an actress as I haven’t seen much of her work although that character’s part in the book is rather small and she has no dealings with the Laing character in the latter half of the book. They still have quite a few roles to cast on that film.

    As I just said on the other thread, those other project rumors (Kyriakides and Two Minutes to Midnight) sound interesting and I would be quite delighted to give Tom a walking tour of every one of the 26.2 miles of the Boston Marathon route that Kyriakides ran to victory in 1946. And he can stay at my house while he’s here.

  5. PunkyMomma says:

    Saw OLLA this past weekend. Swoon. Sienna, rabid carnivore that she is, is already sharpening her canine teeth. Another delicious man meal for her.

  6. Intro Outro says:

    Hiddlesbombing other Brit threads worked and we got one thread for ourselves. Yay! :D

    In other news – it is RUMOURED that Hiddles got two more projects: a biopic about a Greek runner set during WWII and called “Kyriakides”; and “Two Minutes to Midnight” which looks like a psychological thriller.

    • M.A.F. says:

      The “Two Minutes…” was already taken down from Yahoo Movie news (well, at least on my end it was no longer loading). Both sound eh to me especially the latter.

      • Intro Outro says:

        Ah well. Good thing I wrote RUMOURED in upper case then :D

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        Wow Intro. You must have a lot of power to make things happen or not happen simply by using uppercase!! Please make it happen again. I DARE YOU…

      • M.A.F. says:

        I read the little blur the site had about it and it just sounded too generic, like it has been done before.

      • Intro Outro says:

        Hehehe @Secret Squirrel, that’s surely a level up from Death Note, isn’t it?

      • 'P'enny says:

        the info has gone, which means someone’s pulled it and I googled and could find nothing. a lot of these may get leaked by agents, but until it turns on Deadline, I won’t count my chickens,

      • Lilacflowers says:

        M.A,F, variations of that story have been done before. Depp did one where they were going to kill his kid if he didn’t murder someone by a certain time. Dennis Quaid did something similar too.

      • Isadora says:

        Wasn’t there also something with Gerard Butler and Pierce Brosnan? Or was the storyline slightly different? Hard to remember that, wasn’t very good I think (like everything with Gerard Butler except Coriolanus from what I hear).

      • Hiddles forever says:

        @Isadora

        Gerard Butler was very good in a bunch of movies.. Pity HW made him.. What he is now and his movies are awful… (Except Coriolanus, but that is a role he had already played in the theatre….)

      • Isadora says:

        I had a big crush on GB when I was 17 or something. I have seen him in that cheap Attila tv movie and he was yummy. So I suffered through that one, Phantom of the Opera, Wes Craven’s Dracula, Tomb Raider 2 and Timeline. None of them were good imho. I couldn’t get past the first 15 minutes of 300 because I hated the visual style. I’ve tried to watch Beowulf & Grendel recently and while I respect the effort to treat the source material in this manner I thought it was just incredibly boring. Even with Stellan Skarsgard. But I haven’t seen the Coriolanus film, so I can’t say anything about that.

      • M.A.F. says:

        @Lilacflowers–ah, yes, the Depp film where he has to kill some California Senator at some hotel during or before her speech. I spent most of the day trying to think of movies with similar plot lines like the little blur about this “Two Minute” movie.

      • Hiddles forever says:

        @Isadora

        I have been a Butler fan for a while in the past too.
        Dear Frankie, The Jury (which has Mark Strong in it too!!!) and even Rocknrolla. Oh I even dared to see Shooters lol Someone also told me he was good in that surfing movie nobody saw, me included :D I didn’t see Coriolanus either.

        Oh my God, you saw the worst ones though lol Attila and Dracula were unwatchable, I endured maybe ten minutes of them.
        Too much crap :D

    • Lilacflowers says:

      As I said above, he is staying at MY house when he comes to do research on Kyriakides’s Boston Marathon win.

    • Isadora says:

      2Minutes sounds a bit generic yes. So if it really happens my hopes rest on a spectacular director. There were some co-stars mentioned at yahoo, but I don’t really know them.

      As for “Kyriakides” (the name is killing me)… I’m cautious. I mean, it sounds great – a leading role for Hiddles, Greek, running, yes perfect. Someone mentioned Oscarbait on imdb (talk about trust in Hiddles acting abilities *g* I mean, this came even faster than people jumping on the Oscar chance for The Batch) and it’s not even unwarranted. There are the right ingredients:
      1) biopic
      2) Nazis
      3) massive weight-loss (poor Hiddles)
      4) tragic story (including mistreatment and really bad people, see 2)) with triumph of the tragic hero in the end
      5) Hiddles would campaign (he didn’t get the TommyAnne moniker by being a grumpy recluse)

      BUT someone mentioned that a director is already attached to Kyriakides and it’s Ericson Core. Oh, the horror… He has hardly any directing experience and is the one who should do the Point Break remake (which is absolute senseless in itself because Point Break was perfect, perfect, perfect). Other things on his CV (as cinematographer) include “masterpieces” like Daredevil and The Fast and the Furious. So, really? This guy should make a serious biopic about someone like Kyriakides? Ugh…

      • Abby_J says:

        I’m not sure he’d mind the weight loss. The boy appears to love a good run, so he can just run his little heart out and get ready for the movie doing something the loves. :) Now, if he follows it up with another Thor movie, or something where he needs to look a little stronger, that might be an issue.

        Imagine all the scenes of Hiddlesshorts.

      • jammypants says:

        Regarding the director, since Disney is an investor, I wouldn’t doubt that they’ll drop him and replace him with someone else if the project gains traction. They did that to Henry Selick for The Graveyard Book and dumped that project onto Ron Howard.

        Also, I had no faith in the writers of Captain America: The Winter Soldier (their CV is TERRIBLE) and yet…they made an excellent film, which, believe me, shocked me.

      • Intro Outro says:

        @Isadora:

        You’re so right about that Ericson Core guy! His CV looks very underwhelming. And if you look at his IMDb page, he’s mostly credited as director of photography – and this immediately made me think of Wally Pfister who was Nolan’s cinematographer and then made his directorial debut with Transcendence. And we all know how it ended =(

        Fast and Furious and Daredevil… Ugh. He directed a Disney sports biopic called Invincible though – maybe that’s one of the reasons he’s attached to this Kyriakides project.

      • 'p'enny says:

        Ben Wheatley isn’t exactly a directing god yet, High Rise is his first studio-based film with a budget.

        Hiddles has a tendency to want to do films he can get his project teeth into, and he is no wallflower when it comes to acting a role, he doesn’t turn up and wait to be told what to do. He does his research, and builds the role and works with the director. It make’s a huge difference to the final output of the film. He had a big influence on OLLA, Thor & Avengers and not to mention his Shakespeare stuff.

      • Isadora says:

        I really hope you are right, jammypants & ‘p’enny!!

        And while Wheatley isn’t a directing god yet he’s on a good way. Everyone is singing his praises, esp. for “A Field in England”. He has proven his skill and just got a budget = good turn of events.

        A director with a big budget who hasn’t yet proven his skill = way riskier and possibly awful.

        I’m sure Hiddles goes into every role full force and is essential to its success. However he always worked with interesting directors (and with Loki he already had the basics of the character built until Whedon and Taylor got their turn). Joanna Hogg has a unique and interesting style, Allen & Spielberg are legends, Terence Davies is less known but still very much critically acclaimed, Jim Jarmusch is practically a godfather of US indie cinema and Ken Branagh is Ken Branagh. What I want to say: he got a chance to really make it work with his directors. I’m not sure how much influence and power an actor has to rescue a film if he has to work against a shitty director. But as I said, let’s hope for the best.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Abby_J, like this scene in running shorts? It makes me laugh that Marvel is using that same song to promote Guardians of the Galaxy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULAj19fbSpE

      • Abby_J says:

        @Lilacflowers

        Yes, Yes, Yes! MORE scenes like that. Why not just a two hour movie of him running? :) Curly blonde hair and all! Although I do prefer slightly darker (red) Hiddles with scruff.

        Off to watch that video like 1,000 times!

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Abby_J, do you think Ruth Wilson enjoyed filming that scene?

  7. blue marie says:

    I don’t care, BUT that video was cute.

  8. Abbott says:

    Seems like Tommy is too smart to mess with that. But I bet BCoop is on American Sniper.

    Please, please tell me Dragonflies is a joke.

  9. BangersandMash says:

    This woman is great for gossip!! So bring it on…

  10. Lindy79 says:

    Nay. Ive yet to see her in anything and be even remotely impressed with her acting.

    That video is so cute. There’s another one from same day where a little girl grabs him and gives him a hug. SO cute.

  11. Nighty says:

    Finally! A post on Mr Dragonfly!! Yay!!!
    And there’s the Sock monkey… Where’s Bunny and the bunkies?
    Don’t know much about her, so I’ll comment on her later after doing some checkings…
    Gotta love his smile…
    :)

  12. Sixer says:

    I would pay all my pocket money for a gazillion years for Tommy-omelette to do mega-snogtastic times with Sienna. That would be my favourite thing EVER. It won’t happen but a girl can dream, right? Then someone could hack Tommy’s phone and find Miss Whoeveritwas around here that he did(n’t) dump by text. Then there can be a court case and Amal Hoojimawhatsit can represent Tommy and George can sit in the public gallery. Then Glenda Jackson can ask a question in Parliament. Then…

    … like I say, a girl can dream.

    That’s not a big part she’s got if they follow the book. Mind you, I suppose it’ll be quite an ensemble thing.

    Who else is rumoured? I can’t be bothered to look and I’m sure the ladeez here are aware.

  13. 'P'enny says:

    I said all I have to say in the other thread…. however, to summarise in a nice tone, if that quim as much as touches his curls. I will swing for her.

    Tom is still in Canada, he, Mia and Jim are the last to film at the Scottish Rite place? they are there today and tomorrow, as filming was pushed back a day. And they have moved the trailers onto private property to keep the fans out, this time. Charlie and Jess have finished and gone. Jessica I think is going to Cannes, and Charlie is off to S7 of SofAnarchy.

    Really enjoyed all the Crimson Peak gossip on twitter, it’s been fab and I am expecting the same amount of buzz when he starts filming High Rise, although there is no outdoor scenes in the book so I can’t see there been much fan interaction. But, there will be fans with snipers for Sienna.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Unleash your killer ninja pigeons on her, ‘p’enny!

    • Kate says:

      Hi – Newbie here! Just curious about what kind of gossip on Twitter came about? Anything salacious or just goings-on?

      Also, I’d be awfully disappointed if he hooked up with her. I’d like to think he’d be above the dirty hookup thing (maybe in his 20′s though) as he seems like such a sweetie but whatevs. I probably hold most famous people I like to a stupidly high standard, which isn’t fair. He’s gorgeous and famous so I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised by anything tawdry.

    • Isadora says:

      I’m amazed, where did you get all the infos about Crimson Peak this week? Much appreciated!

      I was horrified to see that torrilla has a big fat “offline” on her tumblr, she always had the fastest news and best pics. :-( Someone has to keep up the good work! Doesn’t anyone want to be… Alonsilla (because I very much prefer Xabi if we stay within La Furia Roja)?

      • Roberta says:

        Isadora, twitter and ONTD are mines of information even without venturing onto tumblr.

      • Isadora says:

        Ah, yes, but twitter is a mess (for me) with all the hashtags and stuff. Tumblr is a mess too, especially if you venture into the weird areas, but if you just follow blogs like torrilla who always had information and pictures without the nasty stuff like badly written Hiddles fanfiction, it’s fast and easy.

        I don’t know ONTD yet, however.

      • M.A.F. says:

        This isn’t the first time she’s been offline. She was offline awhile back for like 2 weeks (during the summer I think). She might be on vacation or something.

        Wait, are we assuming Torrilla is a woman? She used to post actual messages with the photos but that was way back in the day but beyond that, I don’t think we know much, right? At least she isn’t a crazy one.

        I wouldn’t bother with ONTD, all they do is repost information you can find elsewhere. But they do have posters, some of which are funny, others are annoying.

      • Isadora says:

        M.A.F., that’s good to know! As dedicated as she is I was already wondering about this sudden offline thing…

        And yes, she seems to be a woman from somewhere in Asia. She has an account at some Asian equivalent of twitter where she also posted more personal stuff. And regarding Hiddles’ fanbase I guess a man behind such a blog would be quite extraordinary. :/

      • M.A.F. says:

        @Isadora-you’re right. I believe it has been discussed on Tumblr about Torrilla being a woman and how she might be a school teacher of some sort. And yes, by going off when she reposts Twitter messages, she does seem to be based in Asia.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Twitter drives me crazy; there is just TOO much and most of it is nuts. Tumblr scares me. ONTD is a good source of information and it usually has been checked out somewhere instead of just some fan girl making stuff up.

      • jammypants says:

        Torrilla went offline while Cannes took place last year. I’m sure she has a life and goes on trips like all of us =p

        @Lilac, whenever I look at the Twitter feed, my thoughts run to: “WHY would you say that?!” or simply, “Ugh.” lol

      • Penny says:

        I go to tumblr for the Hiddles gifs and pictures. The slobbering commentary and the fan fiction I ignore because I find it creepy. Torrilla is an excellent source of the latest TH photographs which are high quality.

        I post at twitter and have made some good friends there but there is a lot crazy stuff there too. It can be quite cliquey there too. You just got to find the right people to hang out with. I know, that sounds like cliquish behavior, doesnt it?

  14. Toniko says:

    Kinda funny, considering their talents, that Hiddleston is getting work right and left, while his buddy Cumberbatch became such a socialite.

    • Nighty says:

      Well, Cumby (love him) is not so Casanova material… whereas Hiddles is…. and maybe is busy with other stuff… some of his projects for this year were postponed and I think he’s trying too much to enter Hollywood whereas Tom is trying to act…
      It’s a pity, they are both so good..

    • 'P'enny says:

      Benny has five projects for next year, three films, one tv, one theatre.

      three films have got the production go for Jan alone. He is going to have to drop something.

      I think he is enjoying the rest before the big promo work for Imitation game and the hobbit rubbish.

    • Intro Outro says:

      @Toniko:

      Throwing shade on both Hiddles AND Cumby in one comment? That’s a masterstroke ;)

    • Lindy79 says:

      To be fair, he can’t control schedules and projects being pushed back so it’s not a choice.
      Swings and roundabouts for actors.

    • Tatjana says:

      I don’t think Benedict’s a better actor. They’re pretty equal.

      • Nighty says:

        Who said benny was better? They’re pretty good the two of them…

        *looking astonished without understaning….”

      • Intro Outro says:

        @Nighty:

        Unless Toniko corrects me, “considering their talents” in this case implies that, although Tommy is less talented than Benny, he’s getting work right and left these days while Benny is not working at all.

      • Nighty says:

        Oh yeah, forgot about her comment…. (these allergies are giving me headaches… ) and the mix of comments… (let’s not talk about age)
        ended up forgetting it…

      • jammypants says:

        I don’t either. They’re both just…british character actors to me. Mind you their charm knows no bounds, but I don’t see one as better than the other in terms of talent.

      • 'P'enny says:

        @toniko

        ‘considering their talents’

        just picked up that comment… LOL thanks,

        arrrgh it drives me bonkers that cumby-fan girls think that he is a better actor. it is really difficult to compare as their work is very different. Until I see Hiddles in boring biopics, we won’t know. Cumby attempts Shakespeare next year for the first time so there may be for the first time a comparable piece of work.

      • Camil says:

        I know how you feel, ‘P’enny

        Those Cumbylivers…

        Well, right now they are having a meltdown because they think Cumberbatch is unemployed o.0

      • jammypants says:

        I find it extremely laughable they think Ben’s better. He’s about the same talent-wise.

      • Camil says:

        c’mon, they think Crimson Peak is a horrible and cheap thing and Cumberbatch is almost a god :s

      • jammypants says:

        I’m sure no matter what Tommy boy does, it’s never good enough. He got hated on for his PR last year. I think Benny is actually topping him! Photobombing, fashion shoots, chumming it up with royalty. His excuses will be made for him I’m sure.

      • Nighty says:

        I’m sorry @jammy and @camil, stop using the plural when saying people think benedict is better than tom, because only one person made somewhat of a reference to it… jeee..

      • Camil says:

        @Nighty

        I referred to those blinded fans who think Cumberbatch is a god and say awful things about other actors (not only Tom), AKA Cumbylievers LOL.

      • Roberta says:

        Just to say this is the one of the few places online where I see Tom getting any criticism and compared unfavourably to Ben (but then I don’t go on Tumblr). If you go onto ONTD they love him to bits he can do no wrong over there (incl that dodgy UNICEF campaign) and they hate Batch, call him alien, lizard king etc. Swings and roundabouts.

      • Nighty says:

        So, that’s where the alien and lizzard comments come from on Ben’s posts here… heheheh… Tom’s fans at ONTD….
        Oh God, fangirling is too much…. I love them both, find them sexy/charming in different ways… But they both have flaws and I just think one should realize that.. No one is perfect, for God’s sake… eheheheh…
        Being a blind fan is dangerous, one ends up being very disappointed at a certain point…
        To the fans that keep complaining he gets criticized here, I also criticize my friends right in their faces when they do something wrong, and that doesn’t mean I don’t love them to bits.. Loving a person (or in this case being someone’s fan) is acknowleding and loving their flaws as well as their qualities… :D

      • jammypants says:

        @Nighty, no need to be sorry at all =) I do see what Camil means.

      • Isadora says:

        Camil, Cumbylievers!! :-D lol!

        I guess they are on par regarding their acting ability, although I have to admit that I’m much more familiar with Hiddles’ work than Cumby’s *innocent whistling*. I think they are among the best of their generation. In my opinion the only “danger” comes from Fassy’s direction (if you count him into the same generation) because he’s an insane actor in my eyes. And because .. ah.. well … Fassy.

        (Sorry, I have seen X-Men: First Class for the first time a few days ago, so his Magneto is still very much present. Plus he speaks German in that one, very sexy. Why do they make me watch all these comic/superhero movies?)

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @jammypants, yes, the Cumbers were blasting Tom for PR last year, although most of it was actually work-related for Thor2, OLLA, and the US showing of The Hollow Crown and the silly things he did were usually in response to a silly interviewer. Not sure what the other one is promoting, other than himself, because he doesn’t have any product out or coming out until the fall but they argue that is okay because they get to see him. Shrugs.

      • jammypants says:

        @Lilac, very true. Snake hips, karaoke, sleepovers, all in the name of film promotion. I enjoyed every second of his hard shilling. As for Benny here, I have NO clue what he’s promoting? Comic Con, Met Gala, Windsor Walking, photobombing, etc. I actually don’t mind it all. I just find it funny the Cumberbunnies can’t defend him as they attacked TH hard last year for doing the exact things (except he actually was doing them while promoting his work: THC, OLLA and Thor).

      • Roberta says:

        I don’t know if any of you were here a year ago, but our Tom was not getting much work then (except as it turned out voice work in the Pirate Fairy and the Muppets cameo). He was as it was described at the time going to the opening of an envelope. Then there was that embarrassing MTV awards speech (go look at the posts from that time, that’s when he was being called out for his famewhoreish ways. This was before the Thor 2 promo, Coriolanus prep, even before the reshoots in the summer.

        2 things that bother me about Hiddleston; not him but his pr and fans. The young ones (apparently) who think he’s perfect, but also the ones who can’t stand any criticism of him, even when it’s lighthearted.
        Nightly, I completely agree. I think it’s quite worrying for his career and for those who think he can’t do anything wrong.

    • jammypants says:

      tbh, I’m surprised at how much ass Benny is kissing! I always thought he was above that, but he’s cozying up with Anna Wintour, the Royals, and Harvey Weinstein. It makes him look really fame hungry.

      On an unrelated note, anyone following the Mansfield Park recordings? They’re quite lovely to listen to whilst having breakfast in the kitchen.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Thank you, tonika for making the thread complete. Doubtless Benedict will reward you with his undying love.

    • lunchcoma says:

      The only actors who don’t have slow periods are those who produce or direct their own projects. Everyone else is bound to have a gap now and then. Things get delayed. Projects get cancelled. A round of auditions doesn’t work out. Weren’t people just fretting about Hiddleston not working and comparing his schedule to Cumberbatch’s busy one?

    • Duri says:

      wow I just came here to read some fun comments and this is what I see, you guys were telling me in Benedict’s thread that you like both and here I see the same folks thrashing him and his fans. Now as a Benedict fan what am I supposed to make of this??? I mean don’t I have the right to retaliate to such nasty comments towards him???? Tom fans are quite hypocrites I must say…..very disappointing.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        What nasty comments?

      • Intro Outro says:

        *sighs* Dear Duri, I am not being ironic or condescending in any measure now, but you will not be able to enjoy CB unless you learn to distinguish between sarcasm/snark – which CB abounds in because it has this -b*tchy suffix for a reason ;) – and really shady comments (directly stating that, for example, Hiddles is talentless or ugly).

        I, ‘P’enny and Lilacflowers spoke to you on Cumby thread, if I am not mistaken. I don’t see any nasty comments from any of us. Some people thrashed some die-hard Cumby fans up the thread – after yet another unfavourable comparison of Hiddles to Cumby, mind you – and snarked at Benny for doing lots of self-promotion. That’s not remotely nasty by CB standards :D Also, there’s always a very healthy amount of snark thrown at Hiddles by his own fans (me included) on his own threads. I think that’s great, it helps keep things grounded in reality.

        I take it you got offended I mentioned the “ass kissing”? I like both. As of right now Benny’s gracing my ears with his lovely Bertram in Mansfield Park. Curse the BBC for chopping up the play in installments and making us wait. *Stamps feet*

        Before you get offended, it’s tables and turns. Love comes and goes. The archives of both actors are telling.

  15. Roberta says:

    Uh, nope. But now that she has a husband (?) and kid, I’m sure our Puddletom will be smart enough not to touch her with a barge pole (off set that is).

    Kaiser – Crimson Peak fully wraps this Friday. Tom, Mia & Jim Beaver are still filming in Hamilton, ON. Chastain and Hunnam have already left.

  16. Sarah says:

    Uhm, NO. Don’t even think about it. She seems like one of those who go from one man to another quite often. She has a boyfriend and a kid, but who knows? Heh. It would be a really bad, sloppy move on Tom’s part to end up with her. And Hiddles is a smart guy, right? RIGHT? It would be quite disappointing.

  17. Sarah says:

    I wouldn’t worry about sienna and tom. She likes bad boys. Tom is too tame and conventional for her.

    • Nighty says:

      “beige coupling”? Don’t understand the expression (not English native speaker…)

    • 'P'enny says:

      Tom has said he is a bad boy in certain situations. to be honest he is s single bloke with a big thingy, too many whiskey’s and a bad PR idea from Luke, later…

      • Sarah says:

        He may say he is a bad boy but he comes across as anything but. Rhys ifans, Jude law and Getty are hard partying womanizers puddle tom is a sweet puppy in comparison.

      • Nighty says:

        Either a sweet puppy or someone who knows how to hide the stuff… the others may not be so careful… I think he is actually the second choice… hides stuff very well…

      • Isadora says:

        He wasn’t exactly a sweet puppy back in the day with Gwendoline Christie, it seems. ;-)

        But if Luke thinks that this is a good PR idea, then I would pay him to apply for a job at Monsanto. Tom & Sienna would be a PR disaster.

      • 'p'enny says:

        @isadora

        it didn’t do Jude Law’s career any harm.

        but, year PR disaster totally i agree, he would destroy his fanbase in 24 hours with the first papped snog especially arranged for Sixer ;-) wink.

        you see if he had an affair with Jessica Chastain I wouldn’t have minded, so much, because she’s nice and intelligent. But Sienna is such a man-eater, she has no scruples and neither have Daniel Craig, and Jude Law for that matter. :-p

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Actually, I think Sienna is on par with the men with whom she has partnered. She gets all the flack for doing the same thing they did (yes, they got flack at the time but men are allowed to move on). If somebody mentions Jude Law, people don’t immediately launch into stories about Sienna Miller, they talk about his work. Same with Daniel Craig. We can leave Balthazar Getty out because there isn’t much happening in his career, not that a Getty needs much of a career. But mention Sienna Miller and the focus is always on her personal life.

      • Isadora says:

        I guess that’s also because Jude Law and Daniel Craig did slightly better/more interesting work than Sienna (and yes, Getty didn’t so his private life is very much what defines him). And Jude Law in his personal life is actually far worse than Sienna – a divorce, banging the nanny (and maybe several others?), the unwanted baby with the fling a few years back? Ugh… Daniel Craig has probably avoided further flak by getting hitched to Rachel Weisz. People tend to forgive easier if someone has supposedly settled down and left his/her wild years behind (like Brangelina).

      • lunchcoma says:

        Yeah, Jude Law was quite a bit worse than Sienna. Both of them have cheated on partners, but Law had an affair with his kids’ nanny and then tried to convince the child who walked in on them not to tell anyone. That’s really sleazy. (I’ll leave the unplanned pregnancy off the list. I wouldn’t judge an actress for having a child she didn’t plan with a man she didn’t know well, so I won’t judge him for that, either.)

      • jammypants says:

        @Lilac, tragic isn’t it?

      • Isadora says:

        @lunchcoma: Yes, I don’t know the exact circumstances of the unplanned child stuff as I wasn’t in the same bedroom lol, but read the woman was really very short term – I think it was called a “two night stand” – and in this case I can’t understand why a man doesn’t use proper protection. Not only because of children but of course because of STDs.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @jammypants, sadly, it still seems to be the way of the world.

      • lunchcoma says:

        @Isadora: People should absolutely be using protection with two night stands. That being said, I’m willing to allow for cases when people do and it doesn’t work. I certainly know a few little people who wouldn’t exist if birth control always functioned properly. In any case, Jude’s done plenty of other skeezy things for me to judge.

  18. Hello Kitty says:

    I can’t see their hookup going beyond a one night stand with a very awkward morning after. She LOVES the limelight and he doesn’t. One pap shot of them together and Hiddles will probably go into hiding shortly thereafter.

    • Secret Squirrel says:

      “She LOVES the limelight and he doesn’t” – Are you sure you’ve been following the right man around all these months? I’m proud of the lack of publicity he generated in Toronto (proving he can actually stop the dancing bear act and focus on work when he needs to) but he’s never shirked the limelight!

      I imagine him as a “here’s some tea and toast, so eat up then you have to leave because I have people coming over” kind of morning after person. Sweet and polite but clearly kicking you out!

      • Nighty says:

        THIS!!! Puddletom LOVES the limelight!!!!! He worshippes it…. :)
        And I do see him kicking a one night stand out politely… lol.. . before anyone realizes he had company for the night…

      • 'P'enny says:

        He worships the ‘fan’ limelight, not the ‘personal life’ limelight, think there is a difference. He locks down everything regarding friends, family and lovers now.

        as for lack of publicity in Toronto, LMAO, mmmm ‘sock bunny’ photo, and ‘staged pap walking around photos’ and an incredible drop down gorgeous ‘man in black’ posing on set in costume thing going on… partying with Jessica, posing beautifully with Jessica. And he picked up super fan-boy in jim beaver, praising him all over Facebook…. and I won’t mention the queues of nearly 100+ waiting for autographs. Of which Charlie had the stamina for only two nights, before he could take no more and Hiddles just kept soaking it up and loving it, night after night.

        I love that soppy man… rather too much these days. I need a life.

      • Hello Kitty says:

        Yes. P’enny read my mind and better explained what I was trying to say. Hiddles loves the fans but he doesn’t stand around in Burger King and preen. (See Lainey’s encounter with SM).

        I like to imagine that Hiddles would offer his one night stand a ride home. “Oh hey, grab a bagel if you’d like from the kitchen. I have a meeting but I’ll drop you off.” Both gentlemanly and effective.

      • jammypants says:

        Haha I was about to say! He’s an extrovert. Tommyboy shy away! as if! :p

      • Isadora says:

        Yes, as much as he is a dancing bear, he also knows where to draw the line between public persona and private Tom. Sienna doesn’t (or doesn’t care).

        As for the stuff in Toronto – most of these things were put online by fans. Or the restaurant where Jessica had her birthday party. In her private pics for her Instagram Hiddles wasn’t very limelighty. And Jim Beaver is Hiddles’ fanboy because he gained a gazillion followers on facebook/twitter in the process – it’s easy these days: mention Hiddles, get followers. Quite some people from the Crimson Peak crew did that to a certain extent. Maybe even the set photos were papped because GDT wanted the exposure, who knows. What I want to say: aside from signing and being nice to fans these things weren’t exactly within Hiddles sphere of influence or even originated by him.

      • Roberta says:

        But he does really impress with all the fans, lots of actors do the bare minimum or don’t bother. Both him, and Chastain as well, have those personalities that make people feel special. One fan posted on instagram that he hugged only her (don’t think she may have noticed he does that quite often). And as Penny mentioned there were the “staged pap walking around photos” which were just before the Olivier and MTV awards weekend.

    • PunkyMomma says:

      Have to say it – at least she won’t have to worry about a name mixup in the moment.

  19. Ficeyes says:

    Good morning Hiddlebitch@s, I’m pretty terrible at math. I actually have a math learning disorder called dyscalculia. Its pretty bad and has prohibited me from going into any field of science and medicine that would garner me more money. Boy does it sure suck. I haven’t been able to laugh at my disorder until now after I saw a video of tom struggling with math himself, so I’m in great company. This is an illustration of how I feel or at least what I think happens to me when I’m in a math class or taking a math test or doing anything that has to do with answering a math question. I call this illustration starring Tom Hiddleston: This Is My Brain on Math. http://youtu.be/0IKgnk6ElDw

    • Nighty says:

      The videos on Tom’s struggling with Maths are hilarious… :) Have you seen the other one?
      Maths 1.0????

    • joe spider says:

      I always wondered why she asked him such an off topic question – trying to make him look silly? Thought it was a bit cheap myself.

      he should have said “no idea, you tell me”.

      • Nighty says:

        Yep… I agree on that. she shouldn”t have asked it after him saying on an interview he wasn’t good at mental arythmatics (he never said he was bad at maths); but the video clip is funny…

      • 'P'enny says:

        it’s because people want to challenge his Eton education. He took it really well, considering. Kevin Feige made a sarcy remark too. But, I bet his father wasn’t amused being a science whizz. Those in glass houses shouldn’t through stones, for want of a better expression. a lot of people can’t maths in their head these days, let alone learn a ton of shakespear and speak ancient greek.

      • Ficeyes says:

        I thought that was rude and out of place of her too. If it were me , and I were fast on my feet at the time, I would have said, “Its math.. Next question.” And would have laughed my ass off.

      • Isadora says:

        The video is hilarious and the question was MEAN. I’m about as “good” at this stuff as him (or even worse) so I feel his pain. And it’s not only that I’m bad at it, I also really don’t like it (on the other hand I’m also horrible at singing and still love it lol). Actually maths is the only school stuff I still have nightmares about (after all this time… *loki voice*) and when I wake up I need a few seconds to remember that I never ever have to do maths again. That’s the best feeling in this world.

      • Ficeyes says:

        @ ‘P’enny, I noticed that too. There’s a jerk in every bunch. People tend to challenge his good manners as well as if its some sort of threat to them or as if he never gets angry. It’s rude to me because it seems as if they want to provoke him to anger. So what if they feel his well mannered nature is a bit pretentious? He has the right to put out any persona of himself that he wants. It’s no ones right to challenge it. Personally, I’d rather financially support and be a fan of a nice, well mannered celeb than be in the company of jerky celeb. I would never see their movies.
        @ Nighty, I agree, he never said he was bad at math just not good at doing mental math. However, I’m bad at both.

      • Roberta says:

        I think it’s because his intelligence and education can be quite intimidating, and isn’t that what interviewers/journalists do to get a soundbite? He does handle it very well though. What bothers me is that there’s an element of his fanbase who thinks he’s perfect, so I find this kind of thing refreshing because it shows he does have flaws. He’s creative, good with languages, and can recite ancient greek but he’s not perfect.

    • Lucretia says:

      LMAO, and . . . he was right. The answer is 1440, and he said 1400. It’s my middle school teacher-self coming out — needed to check the answer.

      Well done, Tom. I’ll have a little something for you after class . . . .

    • Penny says:

      I am terrible at math too. Cannot add or subtract in my head–I have to write it out. My brother is the same way and he is an engineer!

  20. MissMary says:

    I thought Sienna’s M.O. was going after married men or men in committed LTRs… Either way, having read High Rise, I really can’t see her as Charlotte.

  21. ems says:

    I totally thought Sienna should have played the Mia W part in Only Lovers Left Alive – Mia was the only glaring error that movie made. I saw Sienna onstage in London several years ago and found her surprisingly impressive.

    • Isadora says:

      Really? I think Mia was really cute and funny in OLLA. I was actually surprised by her performance because normally she seems so shy and reserved. Ava was quite a different role for her and I think she fit perfectly. I couldn’t picture Sienna as Tilda’s little vampire “sister”.

    • I have to say I would like to see sienna do something that impressed me on the stage, because I have never really felt it from her movies. As it stands, I feel that this is a huge imbalance of talent. I’ve not read the book though, so I don’t know how much screen time the love interest gets. Is it a typical vapid hollywood female lead or does it have chops. I would like to think that it requires chops…

      • Lilacflowers says:

        The Charlotte character does not get much coverage in the book and she’s a sex interest, not a love interest, although she’s a user herself. There is no love in High Rise but to give too much detail on what becomes of the women or what the women do is actually a real spoiler.

      • lunchcoma says:

        Yeah, she’s a small character and (at least in my opinion) not the most interesting woman in the book. I don’t think Sienna has a lot of range as an actress, but I think she’ll be fine in the role.

  22. Abby_J says:

    The video is cute (the little girl hugging him video is cuter!) but maybe it is because I prefer to keep my Hiddleslove from afar, and wouldn’t dream of showing up on a movie set to meet him for real, that it bugs me that the Mom in the video encourages the boy to go up to him TWICE, while they are clearly waiting in a line to meet him, and he is with other people. I just find that strange and somewhat rude. The result is funny, yes, but he could have shown Hiddles his Spiderman prowess when it was their turn.

    I also wonder what he thinks when, as in the video with the little girl, he has a grown woman show up for pictures in a Loki costume at random places. I know it probably happens a lot, and I am sure he appreciates the fans, but don’t you wonder what goes through his mind? I imagine it is similar to, “are you $%#$ing kidding me?” :)

  23. Ellen says:

    Yay more names for high rise. Boo beause it no contains Sienna Miller. Not that I don’t like her but all her films tend to be a bit rubbish.

    I find it funny that people actually think that Sienna was going to be Hiddles epic-love-story-that-is-going-to-bring-Tumblr and Twitter- down.
    If he did date another celeb it should be Hayley Attell but personally I don’t see sienna cheating now she has her daughter to think of.

    • jammypants says:

      So tragic Close Enough didn’t happen. Hayley was single back then! :p

    • 'p'enny says:

      He’s certainly close to Hayley, they have been mates for a long time and someone said on Datalounge, so it has to be true, that they were caught all over each other at the Empire Awards. I don’t believe it to be honest, Tom isn’t Hayley’s type if her current pretty beau Dando is to go by.

      But, i did find it funny that Jane Arthy followed Hayley for a couple of days around the Olivier Awards and unfollowed shortly after LMAO!

      [and this week's stalker award goes to me!]

      • Intro Outro says:

        WOW ‘P’enny, I was just going to say that you’re quite knowledgeable :D

        Knowledgeable and well-informed fan is the best type of fan ;)

      • 'p'enny says:

        oops its’s not Evan Dando. It’s Evan Jones. Very pretty boy.

      • TommyAnnE says:

        Penny, you scare me. You are the reason for the double locks on my doors and the extra-thick blue velvety window shades (which I don’t doubt you noticed, right?)

      • 'p'enny says:

        @tommyanne

        scarey ‘evil laugh’ i’m coming to get you… i have a large toothpick for breaking in locks and i have x-ray glasses for heavy curtains! i will see you with Sienna! and then i will send scary killer pigeons and leave bunkies in your big saucepan. :-D

      • Ellen says:

        @’p'enny it’s ok to give fangirl Jane a taste of her own medicine. Going by what you’ve said she’s really trying to get his attention now but stil coming across as a batshit fangirl. I wouldn’t be suprised if she’s not already following crimson peak and high rise accounts.I can’t wait to see if his next hookup is as bad. At least if he went with sienna she’s not anther desperate fangirl.

        What about Lady Mary as a celeb hookup?

      • 'p'enny says:

        she isn’t following the Crimson Peak sites, yet…. heheheheee I’m a Stalker Queen. Life’s a bit boring this year.

        he’s friends with Michelle Dockery, too. A lovely, perfect hook-up, although i can’t bring myself to watch that model advert thing because of his orange hair and bad suit. I do think they would be a nice match. But, i liked them acting together in Return to Cranford, she was very funny putting down his character.

      • Ellen says:

        Come on Thomas! Ask Michelle out. She’s lovely, beautiful, intelligent and most of all won’t stalk you on twitter. Even the batshits won’t complain. Lol

      • MissMary says:

        TBH and this is just pure speculation and I have nothing to found this on, I wonder if Arthy is a hookup gone wrong. Like she keeps putting out so he doesn’t break it off entirely, but she’s hoping to change his mind and bring him to heel…

      • Isadora says:

        I love you ‘p’enny!

        And he should totally get it on with Michelle Dockery, she’s absolutely beautiful! Is she even single? (And it would be a great confirmation for my type speculations – brunette and while she’s not extremely curvy, she still has a very nice figure.)

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @’p'enny, that model advert thing with Michelle Dockery is actually a short film entitled “Out of Time” and it is sad. They have worked together several times: Return to Cranford, Out of Time, and The Hollow Crown, although they had no scenes together in the last one. As of a few months ago, Michelle was involved with somebody.

      • Penny says:

        I can only imagine the fan girls meltdown if there are rumors of Tom and Sienna being an item, knowing what kind of reputation she has. I doubt it will happen, she doesnt seem to be his type. Now, I think he and Hayley Atwell would have made a great couple. Same with Jessica Chastain.

        I saw ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ and thought he and Tilda Swinton had excellent chemistry.

  24. Derpy says:

    Am I the only one who finds him really ugly?
    I’m not impressed with his acting yet either and I’ve seen a few of his films

  25. Ellen says:

    Kind request. Does anybody know if the video in which the interviewer gives him a quiz and he gets some answers wrong? It ends up with them running out of time but our boy makes her ask him the questions he got wrong again because he now knows the answers.

  26. Anne tommy says:

    Thank god for a hiddles thread…I was getting withdrawal symptoms. I never quite get this “hiddles as a dork” perception – dork an American word that doesn’t really mean a lot to me anyhow. Does being polite and articulate and not overtly “macho” make one a dork? Don’t think so.
    On an entirely different note, mr cucumberbatch was mentioned as usual, While he’s no Tom I don’t dislike him and quite enjoyed the Julian Assange film he did fairly recently- but heresy and horror- I think Sherlock is a bit overrated and actually prefer the series Elementary with Jonny lee miller as Sherlock.
    In what is rather a hotch potch of a post: Gerard butler was good in coriolanus as, less unexpectedly, was Ralph Fiennes but the Donmar version was a standout.

  27. Princess says:

    To the person that said Tom must think it’s crazy all the grown fan girls showing up in costume. He loves it! There’s a video out there of him coming out to start signing on crimson peak and he comes out like a rockstar, arms in the air going “hellooooo, Toronto!” So if you wanted to show up to see him on a movie set I doubt he would mind :-)
    Also, re sienna miller, I’ve heard some rumours that TH is gay, not sure how true it is but wouldn’t be surprised if he was

  28. Princess says:

    What’s datalounge? Just heard rumours via some theatre people in the UK who know friends of his and heard vague rumours about a relationship with a friend of his who does tv work in the UK. I don’t know, there’s a pic out there of him in Toronto looking a bit swishy. Hey, I like him, and don’t care whether he is gay or straight, he was the only thing that made that awful Thor movie bearable! High rise is also one of my favourite books so I’m looking forward to seeing him in that. Haven’t seen anything else that he has done. Re sienna, if he is that way inclined, there is no way he would touch her with a barge pole, he is way too conscious of his image and I for one am glad of that, I’m a bit sick of all the random celebrity hookups so someone who doesn’t shove every random hookup in our faces is cool with me

    • joe spider says:

      @ princess

      a friend of a friend of a friend, vague rumours! Nobody every meets this friend.

      As Mark Gatiss replied on Twitter when someone asked if he and TOm came out after Coriolanus (meaning at the stage door) his reply was “I’m already out and Tom’s not gay!”

    • Lilacflowers says:

      “looking a bit swishy?” My, how tolerant and open-minded of you not to perpetuate stereotypes.

    • Penny says:

      Every time a thread about Tom Hiddleston is made at the datalounge, it gets shut down. The posters complain of a ‘frau-invasion’. There was no real gossip about him, just that he was a nice guy, etc.

    • 'P'enny says:

      @Princess. rumours of rumours of rumours… LMAO. There are more rumours of his revolving door and shagging his way through London in his twenties. Hiddles has a reputation, and it’s not a gay one.

    • Roberta says:

      Princess, John McMillan by any chance? He’s one of Toms best friends, who also happens to be gay (does tv work I think, was in Spooks). So I’m not surprised there are rumours. Since there are numerous reports of his flirting/checking out women, and openly flirting with an interviewer I doubt TommyAnne is gay. Posh Brits do give off that impression esp with Americans.

      • Miss Melissa says:

        And Tom brought John MacMillan to the Ironman 3 premiere, which probably fueled the fire.

      • 'P'enny says:

        And, Tom can’t socialise with his male gay friends?OMG!! he has to be gay! How will all the fan-girls cope? oh no, let’s set up a help-line.

      • Isadora says:

        Luke is also gay, so some people also tried to work that angle, esp. since he took Luke with him to Africa.

      • Delorb says:

        @Roberta,

        Ooh, John is hot. Hotter than Tom, IMO.

        @Penny @Lilac

        Some closeted gay people overplay the ‘I’m hot for women’ angle to throw people off. Some even marry women. So openly flirting with women doesn’t mean anything. And his misspent youth could include gay flings, not just dancing in clubs.

        One can speculate til the cows come home (which is what this site is for, so keep it coming Princess), but until he comes out, he’s straight. BTW, if there were gay rumors when he was young, then there would be more heat here.

        To call him gay now that he’s (semi) famous doesn’t mean anything, as practically every male celebrity gets called closet queen when they hit the big time (not that I think he’s anywhere near the big time. sorry ladies).

  29. lunchcoma says:

    Sienna’s not my favorite, but Jeremy Irons and James Purefoy are fantastic. Plus, having several well-known actors attached to the movie comes as a relief, given the speculation that it was having trouble attracting funding and might not get made.

    • Ava says:

      @princess – people don’t even respond to trolls like this……
      Sienna is with Tom Sturridge and has a 21 month old baby. Tom is straight and has stated this. This post was about the ACTORS… Jeremy Irons is great and Sienna will also be excellent in the role.

    • Isadora says:

      @lunchcoma: Yes, and I think Sienna Miller might also draw an audience/publicity that otherwise wouldn’t be that interested in the movie, maybe? Because Sienna and Tom really have different fan circles.

      Now that I’m past my initial shock I’m warming up to the idea of her in that movie, I have to admit. 70s style is great for her and let’s see how this pans out regarding her character and actingwise.

      • 'P'enny says:

        @Isadora

        Does Sienna have a fan circle? maybe a bunch of fan-boys who got off on Layer Cake and gossip columnists.

        However, she get’s the publicity as a former Primrose Hill IT girl, she will get newspaper inches and for that it will give the film a push. It will be such a niche limited release film anyway, so it will help.

      • Isadora says:

        Well, nearly everyone has a fan circle. And in Sienna’s case I’d say, yes, men still like to look at her (and Tom’s fanbase is mostly female, so maybe Sienna will bring a male audience to the film) plus some fashionistas/boho girls. Or some former boho girls who have also transitioned into motherhood like her. And as you said, she will bring news, I think she’s still more famous than Tom.

  30. princess says:

    Ava & Joe Spider – hey, I’m new to all this gossip and only repeating what I heard. Does it even matter? It’s a comment section, I assumed we could discuss relevant topics. I only mentioned it in the context of everyone discussing whether TH or sienna would hook up. Like others mentioned, her role is quite limited in the book anyways, and I think they are spot on with the Jeremy irons casting – his character has a young glamorous wife, I wonder who they’ll cast for that

  31. anesthetizes says:

    Ugh. No. No. No.

    Why won’t Sienna Miller go away?

    What dirt does this woman have to keep getting roles?

    Ugh.

  32. Vesta says:

    The Hidds and The Irons hooking up again? That’s a YAY. About Sienna Miller I don’t know, it could work out well enough I guess.

  33. Sarah says:

    Nothing to do with HR but he seems to have lost a lot of hair lately judging by the photo he posted today on TT. He also looks like he has aged a lot. He certainly ages fast.

    • Nighty says:

      He’s loosing hair, that seems about right. About the aging, he was just filming… finished yesterday or so… when I’m tired I also look older… so probably he’s just tired…

      • Isadora says:

        He looks extremely exhausted, tbh. I don’t think it’s really aging because Coriolanus is just a few months back and he looked perfect in it. So I’d say he just needs a few nights good sleep and a face mask lol. Or maybe he should try Elsa Pataky’s green juice recipe lol.

      Honestly I think his hair looks about the same. Thin on the front, balding slowly. Looks like his hair is wet and usually that can make everyone’s hair look thinner. This photo was just taken a few days before and it’s looks about the same http://37.media.tumblr.com/59c0be312ec53e976ae9eed0f99f84a1/tumblr_n5fxogUxYE1s9xttco1_1280.jpg

      But yea, he does look extremely tired.

    • 'p'enny says:

      the guy is exhausted, they have been filming nearly 17 hour days, and night shoots to get it wrapped on time on location. sometimes he’s been signing at 3am, or 7am after shooting.

      his hair has gone quite big and fluffy at the moment and is sticky up like fluff, think he is growing it out. i hope. lol. And, his hair is been stuck under a wig virtually every day and some of those pics show his hair looking squashed and weird.

      • Isadora says:

        I’m starting to wonder about his High Rise hair. Because 70s hair could be quite longish, but his isn’t long enough right now for some profound curly blond action in June/July, is it? I’m not sure how fast hair is really growing in such a time span as I myself always had long hair and don’t keep track of it…

        I hope we get to see some set pictures from HR too, even without outside scenes because otherwise my curiosity will be too much to bear lol.

      • Camil says:

        Del Toro gave them flowers and cakes… I want to work with him too!!! xD

      • Isadora says:

        I want to work with him even if I have to bring all the cakes and flowers. ;-) On the other hand 17 hour days (with endless takes of the same scenes) ARE work, no matter how tempting this film is. Acting is a strange profession – somewhere between being a completely different person in often quite extreme circumstances every few weeks/months and doing/saying exactly the same things for hours on end (which makes an average desk job seem varied in comparison).

    Has anybody seen FanBoy Jim’s latest post on Hiddles? I couldn’t stop laughing with the butt-licking. I wonder what Hiddles really thinks when people do this to him?

    • 'p'enny says:

      Hiddles has tweeted back and shared a photo of the two of them together. Sounds like there is a genuine friendship there. Tom has thanked him for his kind eyes, huge heart, and laughs. I think Jim is a very sensitive man, think he has had a lot of heartache in his life.

      • Ellen says:

        I love their Bromance but it’s funny when Fanboy Jim gets carried away. I suppose I was pondering out loud what Hiddles thinks of people butt-licking him in general. He must get a lot given his profession and it must get on his nerves at times.

        Any idea if he’s back in the UK? His grammatically incorrect Tweet ( he could of been walking whilst typing) he was on his way but his latest tweet time suggest he’s still resting up in Canada.

      • Make mine a double says:

        If I were him, I would much rather get some loving from someone I’ve just spent two months working with, than someone I’ve never met, asking me to follow them on Twitter when I’m promoting UNICEF or something.
        As for the grammar, I think that was intentional. For added emphasis dontcha know…
        Lastly, there is, for sale, a dragonfly dressing gown. I seem to end up in moderation hell whenever I try to post about it. However, use the force, people and you shall find it…

      • Isadora says:

        Yes, I think it’s just Jim’s nature to be rather vocal about his feelings. I sometimes also get enthusiastic about new people I meet and like but I’m by nature far more cautious and less inclined to declare my love right away lol.

        And we must not forget: these are actors – people who are artists by the way they show their feelings to an audience or the film camera. I don’t know if it’s just a coincidence but all actors I’ve met personally were a bit over the top. Not in a bad way, some were quite charming but still rather intense.

        I’m not sure how Tom (or other big stars) deal with the butt-licking. I’m too much a cynic to think that they don’t like it a bit at times. Again, actors tend to have quite a bit of an ego in my experience and those who still manage to be nice have a good family/friends/spouse to keep them grounded.

        Those girls at twitter are, however, really horrible in butt-licking. It’s not even proper butt-licking, it’s just “Tom I love you, follow me back.” (why should he or anybody else?) or “I want to marry you.” etc. I guess there are very many people around him (or any star actor) that do a much better job.

    • jammypants says:

      I thought it was sweet and heartfelt. I knew nothing about Jim until I followed his posts on the filming. Seems he hit gold with Tom. From what I gather, he’s lost a lot in his life and still managed to be surprised by it.

  35. Ellen says:

    So according to FanBoy Jim Hiddles is off to LA. sounds interesting and promising for a new exciting project

    • jammypants says:

      That’s kind of funny because Jim is headed for London. Both are going to where the other is based.

    • 'p'enny says:

      ooooooh holiday? or business?

      he could be auditioning for roles about, ‘whacked out tired actors who need sleep.’ or going for some kind of rejuvenating relaxation at Disney Studios and finalising that film rumour, i hope.

      it has to be work i can’t believe after spending so many months from home and not seeing family, i would go crazy. but then again not everyone is a homebody like me.

    • Isadora says:

      Then maybe no cameo in Avengers 2? :( (The wig could have belonged to Sif too… hard to say.)

      “Rejuvenating” and “L.A.” should never be mentioned in the same sentences – I immediately see pictures in my head of horribly overdone plastic surgery faces. Brrr… But I guess it is work related, very exciting!! (and I’ll probably never learn the name of that Greek runner, ugh..)

      I have (of course) no idea how often Tom sees his family, but his sister lives in India, I think, so I guess they are used to not seeing each other for rather long time stretches. Honestly, I’d be glad to NOT see my family for a few months… or years… lol.

      • Camil says:

        @Isadora

        Loki needs a long rest besides he’s too fabulous for just a cameo LOL.

        I don’t know, maybe Tom went to L.A. to close some business.

      • 'p'enny says:

        @isadora

        the mysterious wig… LOL.

        rejuvenating in LA, well maybe he is going to get his eye-bags seen too :-D oooh me bi-atch today.

        This is me being a stalker… Tom has said in interviews, he is close to his family. His younger sister Emma lives in North London, his close cousins, [mentioned in interviews] live in Suffolk, not far from his mum, who moved back to where her father made his name in the arts festival in Adleburgh. His Dad, i think is still in Oxford.

        As much as Hiddles tries to keep stuff quiet, his family is too well connected and too interesting to be honest, to keep hidden. LOL.

      • Isadora says:

        @’p'enny: Ah, interesting! :-) I have a huge appreciation for his mom since he mentioned in an interview that he gave her his Olivier award for safekeeping when he moved to L.A. and when he moved back to London the Olivier came back with a tiny knitted hat. The Laurence Olivier Award. With a tiny knitted hat. How great is that? She seems to be an interesting and spirited woman – and Tom looks so much like her.

        @Camil: I wouldn’t put it beneath Marvel to have a few seconds of Loki in … everything to keep audiences interested lol. But yes, I’m very much looking forward to some non-Marvel related new jobs. I think his choices so far have been wonderful, imho his body of work is very interesting (no pun intended lol) and I’m a bit afraid of the day when he makes his first awful choice and takes a part in a horrible movie. I think it is bound to happen at some point, every actor has a stinker in his CV… but still..

    Looks like RDJ is following him again.
