Tom Hiddleston signs up to walk the runway for Samuel L. Jackson’s charity event


I really miss Tom Hiddleston. He’s really gone underground following his daily shenanigans last year, during the promotional tour for Thor 2: The Dancing Loki. We seriously had stories about Hiddleston every single day for like two months straight. It was amazing. But now we barely get to talk about him once a week, sometimes not even that. I hoped that he would give more interviews in support of Only Lovers Left Alive, but he barely did any American press. Sad. Anyway, this is just me blatantly grasping for anything having to do with our Tommy. He’s going to be a runway model! For a good cause.

Samuel L. Jackson is hosting a charity ball as part of London Collections: Men. The Pulp Fiction actor has been chosen to chair the fashion fundraiser held at the Natural History Museum on June 15, with proceeds benefitting One For The Boys male cancer foundation.

The 65-year-old star will be joined by famous Brits Tom Hiddleston, Simon Pegg, Luke Evans and David Walliams as they model clothing from top designers including Fendi, Alexander McQueen and Y-3 on the catwalk.

Mr Jackson said in a statement: ‘Men don’t tend to talk about their health issues, worrying about appearing vulnerable. The problem is that they do not have enough information on the subject. One For The Boys focuses on cutting through the noise to educate men, in the hope that we can have a similar reach to that of the pink campaigns.’

The One For The Boys Fashion Ball is one of several events running throughout the year to raise awareness and money for cancers that specifically affect men. Mr Jackson has been the face of Sofia Davis’ One For The Boys charity since 2013, but the bi-annual menwear fashion extravaganza will be the first public event he has hosted for them. The gala involves a Moët & Chandon reception, dinner cooked by a team of Michelin star chefs and a silent auction as well as the runway show.

Sam and Tommy obviously know each other from The Avengers, and Tommy even does a somewhat decent impression of Sam. I’m guessing that if Sam calls you up to make a charity appearance, motherf—ker you are going to walk that runway!!! And since it’s for charity… will Tommy walk the carpet? I hope so. I’m seriously dying over here. I need new Tommy photos. He needs to show up on a red carpet wearing a pimp coat or something. PLEASE.

PS… I will tip my hat to the best BALLS joke in the comments.

    Sam has been spending a lot of time in the UK (aside from filming Avengers 2). I would want to see RDJ and a Hemsworth also partake.

  2. itsetsyou says:

    Oh, Tom, where in the world are you? How come you aren’t in the news all the time, like that other guy, letsnotmentionhimonthisthread. I miss Tom :(

  3. Dani2 says:

    Haha of course he did. I look forward to seeing this, he really loves the attention and he can be really charming/cute/funny in public events. *Sigh* My Hiddleston crush just came back.

  4. Abby_J says:

    Oh the balls jokes do kind of write themselves!

    I agree. Samuel Jackson calls you and says, “Walk in a fashion show for charity” you do it.

    I hope they consider Tom’s tender sensibilities and stick to his monochromatic color preferences. Okay, no I don’t. I want to see them put him in stuff that looks great and is totally out of his comfort zone. I volunteer to sit backstage and hold his hand if he’s traumatized by color.

  5. Vesta says:

    Tommy is going to shake his little tush on the catwalk ?!?! :)
    My eyeballs are going to be veerryy happy…

  6. MissMary says:

    Soooooooooooooo any chance of Tommy being a swimsuit model for this show? Because I want to know if he wears goofy trunks or goes for the southern European boy cut ones.

    I bet he skinny dips.

  7. OhDear says:

    Please say they re-enact the Zoolander walk-off scene. Or at least have Tyra Banks and a panel of judges at the end.

  8. j.eyre says:

    (Press Release, London Natural History Museum, 15 June 2014)
    “Looks like Loki is going to play Ball with Nick Fury once again and this time it’s for all the Marbles. Tom Hiddleston has stopped battling Asguardians for one night to support AssNardians by taking a turn on the catwalk for his pal, Samuel L. Jackson. The Boys are asking us to Gonad or Go Home. Leave the Royal Jewels at the Tower, folks – it’s the Family Jewels on display tonight.”

  9. T.fanty says:

    So, we’re allowed to go nuts with the balls references? Testes the limits, as it were? Because, if so, I would like to note that this event seems like it’s going to be the dog’s bollocks. Which, for the non-Brits among you, is (somewhat inexplicably) a good thing.

  10. Patty Cake says:

    My hats off to Sam Jackson for gathering his friends for such an important cause. There are men everywhere who don’t take their health as seriously as they should. Love me some Tom. I’d love to see the chocolate and vanilla in suits any day

  11. Hello Kitty says:

    All the models wear Kangol hats!

    Re: balls. There is a Schweddy Balls joke in here somewhere. (infamous SNL sketch with Alec Baldwin)

  12. I Choose Me says:

    Please let there be lots of pictures. Please let some of them be shirtless. Please let someone dress him in swimtrunks. Thank you and Amen.

    Oh and if Sam Jackson walked the runway too, that would be amaze-balls.

  13. GeeMoney says:

    I hope we get a Sam Jackson impression video from Tom during this walk… he does it so well.

    And I’m just happy for all of the dragonflies… Finally! A Hiddleston post!

  14. Sarah says:

    TORRILLA, we’ve got a mission for you! Don’t let us down!

  15. Duri says:

    how come Samuel didn’t get any of the other cast members of Avengers, I mean surely they can get a day off from the shoot.

    Anyways I am excited to see what Tom will wear, I don’t think I have ever seen him walk the ramp. Also I hope Tom gives side eye to Luke Evans for taking away the crow remake role because I badly wanted to see Tom do it :(

  16. Leah says:

    I was going nuts not having any Tom posts. I resorted to hangin’ around the hi-jacked Cumberbatch posts but didn’t have the stones to comment. Glad to see Tom is participating in this testicle festival!

  17. Patty Cake says:

    I think It was quite ballsy of nick Fury to ask Loki to do the show. I mean after all didn’t Nick Fury have Loki holding the old balls and chain in the dungeon on the Hellacarrier. Anyway, Frost giants can’t catch Blue Balls from wearing too many suits because their already blue. ;)

  18. Intro Outro says:

    On a serious note: I so agree with what Jackson says about men not caring enough about their health. I have several male relatives and friends who I basically have to coax and push and yell at in order to get them to see their doctors for their respective health issues :( It’s worrying and frustrating. Thank God my husband is much more attentive to his health and eating habits.

    On a lighter note: Tom can ROCK that catwalk, it’s his element. He’s effortlessly sexy and goofy at the same time (I will pretend MTV Awards never happened because no-one can be always perfect lol). He’s also got the perfect catwalk swagger. And style. ARGH. Let there be vids!!!

    • Abby_J says:

      I’ve never seen the MTV thing, other than still photographs. I read here that it was horrible and have made an effort to avoid it so that my Hiddleslove wouldn’t be tainted.

      Thank you to all of you who suffered so that some of us wouldn’t have to. :)

      • icerose says:

        I saw it and it was not that bad. There were some really nice Tom moments on the red carpet and a lovely hug between him and Chris Evans.

      • Intro Outro says:

        I only saw bits and pieces on YT. I think it was a misstep for him. It happens and I’m not holding it against him, especially since he’s never repeated it.

        I have to admit I generally limit my exposure to off-screen Hiddles because the difference between his real personality and, for example, Coriolanus or Adam is nearly off-putting ;)

      • Caitlin says:

        What did he do? I have only recently fallen in love with Tom Hiddleston, and I have not heard about the awards show…What made it so cring-worthy?

      • M.A.F. says:

        Caitlin-he missed read the room. It is MTV, it is suppose to be light and he showed up in a suit, a shiny blue suit. I in tuned when he won his award for Loki and lord. His speech was way too long (nearly 3 minutes) and he was trying to be funny but it came off not being funny and then he brought one of the One Direction’s guy’s dog into the mix because he named it Loki (insert eyeroll). I guess when the Avengers won (best picture?) Jackson was talking and Tom grabbed the microphone and started talking (this part I don’t recall watching). All of it was a little to try-hard for some of our taste.

        Find it on Youtube if you can.

      • 'p'enny says:

        I think some are being way to hard on him, the MTV thing was a miss-fire but he made up for it with all the stuff he has done with MTV’s golden funny lad Josh Horowitz. He made a special effort last autumn with josh by being very down to earth and silly. he’s learning.

      • Isadora says:

        Yeah, the slumber party was definitely funny (and snake hips!) but I really can’t watch the Loki’d stuff another time, it’s so horrible lol… But well, I’m sure some people totally love this, so I watch the things I like and avoid the other stuff.

      • delorb says:

        Ya’ll sound like you’ve seen bigfoot!

        “I seen it once and it was the most horrific thing ever! Guaranteed to melt your eyeballs. ”

        And there, ladies and gentleman is my ‘BALLS’ contribution.

      • TotallyBiased says:

        M.A.F. and others… Eh, I didn’t think it was so bad. MTV was going for a bit of sleaziness, really, and he was too darn sincere and puppy-dog excited to get the memo (“Koala Bear puppet cam? I’ll hug that!”…as Rebel is going on about the candida infections.


        The big Avengers award they were on stage for at that moment was actually for best FIGHT, when SLJ was talking and Tom took a turn at the mike–not wildly inappropriate, considering the fight was between the active Avengers and Loki. Also, I don’t think *anyone* takes a mike away from SLJ against his will!

        The long speech when accepting Best Villain was a bit much, granted…but again, all pretty family friendly unlike some others…why am I lauding family-friendly at an MTV awards show? Because his presenter was about 11 years old (the charmer from Beasts of the Southern Wild) and the back-of-the-stage audience section looked like they’d came straight from a Nickelodeon taping! ;)

      • Intro Outro says:

        Agreed, @’P'enny. He really made up for it.

        That Loki’d series isn’t my type of humour at all lol. I prefer the Loki’d outtakes :P

    • Vesta says:

      @Intro Outro – you’re so right about the men not caring enough of their health. It’s almost sort of a pride thing to some men to avoid the doctor. I hope those men are listening: if Samuel L. Jackson says it’s cool to take care of your health – then it IS COOL.

      • EscapedConvent says:


        Hi Vesta! I couldn’t agree more. Yes, so many men do avoid seeing doctors, some for years & it’s terrible. Someone like Nick Fury does need to take charge & tell them what’s what.

        Also, if Samuel Jackson tells you to do something, you’d better motherf*ckin do it.

      • Intro Outro says:

        Yes, ladies, I know it, and I think that, while it is awesome that female health is in the limelight (because women tend to do more work overall than men on a daily basis), it is absolutely essential to make men understand that it is normal and manly and indeed COOL to take care of their health.

    • M.A.F. says:

      The MTV Awards appearance was what I was talking about. It was eyerolling inducing. As for the Loki’s thing, I only saw the first one and I was good, didn’t need to see any more (the out takes were nice though). The Slumber party interview was good. Josh Horowitz seems to be a fun interview for anyone to do.

  19. Janeite says:

    Balls jokes because this is a fundraiser for male cancer which would include testicular cancer? My brother was just treated for that a year ago. He went through devastating chemotherapy. So yeah, forgive me if I don’t see the humor in this. Sorry. If this were to raise money for breast cancer instead, would we be making breast jokes?

    • Leah says:

      I suffered through a double mastectomy at age 32 so yes I would make breast jokes. It is the only thing that kept me from going into a full blown depression. But I do see your point.

      • Intro Outro says:

        I hate cancer. And my heart goes out to everyone who battles it. *hugs tightly*

      • icerose says:

        There really is no right or wrong when it comes to events like cancer and death Humour helps me to get you through life’s crisis and grief-my brother died within three weeks of being diagnosed with a very aggressive cancer which had spread to seven organs before they found it but he still had his sense of humour till the end. We all deal with these things in our own way. I have a great line in funeral humour as well.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Leah, glad you made it through too. @icerose, so sorry for your loss.

      • Leah says:

        I just reread my comment I made yesterday about my double mastectomy. I came off far harsher than I meant to. I’m sorry about your brother. It is hell to go through cancer treatment and it is almost as horrible to watch the people you love go through it too. My husband nearly had a nervous breakdown because it was so hard for him to deal with me being sick and fearing I was going to die. Plus, he had huge heaping helpings of guilt because he was concerned about the kind of woman I’d be without breasts. He hated himself for even entertaining those thoughts. As I look back on it I made a lot of jokes but he didn’t find many of them funny at all. Everyone handles it differently.

    • T.Fanty says:

      I’m sorry to hear about your brother, but some people find that humor is the only way to cope. My dad died horrifically and painfully from lung cancer, and made jokes about it up until the moment he drowned in his own lungs. I don’t believe that being light-hearted is the same thing as being flippant. I don’t mean this at all in a bitchy way, because everyone has their own way of responding to these kinds of things, but if this is going to upset you, I would suggest skipping today’s post.

    • Sixer says:

      Two-time cancer survivor here. Gallows humour never failed to improve my spirits when I was ill. Don’t take it to heart, Janeite. As Fanty said, for many of us humour is a vital catharsis. Could I tempt you with a radiotherapy tattoo/unsqueezable blackhead joke? It was my favourite at the time. I hope your brother is well now.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Don’t you just love those radiotherapy blackheads? One of mine shows whenever i wear even the most modest of v-necks and two others show if I wear anything sleeveless. But I’ve had a great time shocking people who feel they should make negative comments about women who have tattoos. Glad you fought and made it, Sixer.

    • Katie says:

      Sorry about your brother, Janeite. Wasn’t trying to be flippant but I see what you mean.

      Also sorry to hear about your father, T. Fanty. My uncle (also lung cancer last year) was the same way until the end, cracking jokes.

    • Vesta says:

      Janeite, I’m sorry too about your brother’s cancer and I see your point. But I don’t believe the joking thing was meant in an ignorant manner or to ridicule an important cause. They chose to hold a fashion show, so I understand that one’s thoughts easily begin to flow to lighter waters (mine did immediately when I started to think about Hiddleston & Samuel L. Jackson in Zoolander poses…)
      I also have friends & relatives who suffered from cancer. All I can say is the same that several people said above: humour can be one way to cope, and there’s really no simple answers to what’s right/wrong with coping a serious illness.

    • Janeite says:

      Thank you all for your kind words. I completely understand about humor being a great coping mechanism. But is that really what you all are doing here? There is a time and a place for everything. And if this were a thread about a fundraiser for female cancer and male posters were making jokes about women’s breasts and genitalia I doubt too many of you would see the humor in that.

      • T.fanty says:

        Honestly, of all the real issues at stake in the gender wars, a kerfuffle over a benign case of inverse sexism is hardly the one I’m about to wave my banner over. There are more important battles to fight than a bunch of bored girls giggling over some men in a fashion show. That’s no more invasive

      • T.fanty says:

        Honestly, of all the real issues at stake in the gender wars, a kerfuffle over a barely-there case of inverse sexism is hardly the one I’m about to wave my banner over. There are more important battles to fight than a bunch of bored ladies giggling over some men in a fashion show. That’s no more invasive or objectifying than any of the Tom worship seen online (which you participate in when you comment on the standard fare they dish up here) and if you find this sexist, then I have to wonder why visit this site at all. I’m going to save my outrage for actual hypocrisy.

      • Janeite says:

        Then we see things differently, T.Fanty. But I don’t see any sexism as benign. Respect is respect, whether it’s on here or anywhere else.

        One can visit this site and still refrain from sexist or derogatory comments. But yes, that is one of the reasons I contribute here less and less. The trend towards mean-spiritedness and cruelty being passed off as wit, humor, or bored ladies giggling over men is becoming more and more of a thing here. I don’t care for it.

      • Vesta says:

        Janeite – I felt the main point of this post was Tom Hiddleston walking the runway, not the male cancer aspect. That’s why I don’t equal this situation to the scenario you described.

        I think this post never tried to be a serious article strictly about cancer. I think the aim of this thread was to post something about Tom, just because many people want to talk about him. The main context happened to be modeling Tom, and his looks easily ignite the naughty mode.

        I personally can’t see why naughtiness automatically means sexism or derogating others.

        Have you for example happened to see the interview where Tom Hiddleston himself jokes about giant erections…? Doesn’t he realize there could be some impotent men out there who could be hurt by his jokes?

      • Sixer says:

        But Janeite – half the fundraising efforts for all these types of things involve humour and slightly risque puns. Or at least, they do in the UK. It takes away the taboo and that is an important thing. It’s not sexist. Men need to talk about this stuff much more openly – research indicates survival rates are lower in some cases for men precisely because they aren’t open enough. Humour enables openness. Jokes about BALLS enable openness.

        At the risk of TMI, I was happily the butt of family jokes about disappearing pubes, irradiated nipples, and I don’t even remember what else. Nobody was objectifying me. They were making me laugh and therefore feel better. And mucking about made it a lot easier for other people to talk to me seriously about what was going on. And that’s another danger for cancer patients: alienation. Humour also reduces that.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Are you serious? It’s always been a thing here. They used to have Hot Guy Fridays, for god’s sakes, and regularly feature “would you hit it?” posts. There was just a hell of a lot less sanctimonious outrage that blights the lives of women and men equally – a bunch of grown women being childish about the fact that there are rude words for genitalia is nothing but (gleeful) immaturity, and I’m pretty sure that “protect the tatas” bumper stickers I see everywhere with pink ribbons feeds into that silliness in precisely the way you are saying doesn’t happen.

        Moreover, as someone who has been on the receiving end of *actual* sexism in my life, I would say yes, there is a hell of a difference. Reversing the paradigm of gender denigration isn’t the problem in the gender wars. Sexism is about recognizing an institutionalized, systematic patriarchy that dominates everything from culture to socio-economics. So hell yes, if a man sees this and thinks it’s off-color, then maybe it might draw his attention to how prevalent it is in reverse (#yesAllWomen), and I’ll happily sit down and talk with that guy about his grievances and mine. It’s hysteria over every tiny little thing that prevents actual discourse on the issues that can make a substantive difference to people’s lives. But sure, let’s agree to differ.

      • Janeite says:

        Vesta-Kaiser asked for balls jokes in this thread. So yeah, that was kind of the point.

        Sixer-I’m all for humor within the contexts that you mentioned. But here, it just strikes me as more than a bit crass and insensitive. WIthin this specific context here, it seems like making fun of male cancer and yes, that does bother me.

        T.fanty, show me a woman who hasn’t been on the receiving end of sexism. And for the record, I dislike the “protect the tatas” bumperstickers along with all of that other crap that you mentioned. Just because it happens doesn’t make it okay. At least not for me. But yes, let’s agree to differ. And I would certainly hope that your use of the phrases “sanctimonious outrage” and “hysteria’ were not directed at how I feel about this issue. While you may not feel the same, neither you nor anyone else has the right to tell me how to feel. I’m expressing my personal opinion here just as you are expressing yours.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Firstly, I believe there is no shame in sexual language, when it isn’t used in a denigrative fashion, and punning on male genitalia is *not* offensive. It’s been going on since the Romans. You believe that it’s mocking male cancer, and based on that, and all that you’ve said below I’m fairly sure that this has less to do with sexism (real or imagined) and more to do with your own anxieties about the cancer in your family. For that, I am deeply sympathetic, however, I reserve my right to not be empathetic. Like LilacFlowers (it seems), like Sixer, possibly like you, and like many others, I am burdened with a history of cancer across my family, facing the certainty of cancer in my future, and we each have a right to handle it as we see fit. Calling sexism on this particular issue (and then backing off as you implicitly do when admit that you see this is done towards female bodies, too in the example I gave) is a mask for your own personal relationship with the body and its diseases, and I accept no role in that.

      • Janeite says:

        T.fanty, Wow, never knew you had a degree in armchair psychology as well. But whatever. I have not and will not back off of anything I have said. Sexism works both ways and I have never said that it doesn’t. But if your rationalization makes you feel better, then that’s great. You are correct that we each have the right to handle things the way we see fit and I am not sorry that I spoke out on here. I expect neither sympathy nor empathy from you.

      • Vesta says:

        @Janeite – Kaiser asked for balls jokes at the end of the post with a “P.S” mark. That’s why I can’t see it was “kind of the point” (your words) of this post. I felt it was just one relatively innocent quip and an option to be lighthearted. Regardless of my view, I’m of course ok with that you spoke out how you see things “a bit differently”.

        Still, I’m not entirely understanding with your conclusions above (“The trend towards mean-spiritedness and cruelty being passed off as wit, humor.. etc. etc.”). To me it began to seem like you were diagnosing other posters as cruel, mean & unrespectful just because their sense of humour or opinions didn’t fit yours. I don’t know, it could sound like you’re derogating other posters. But I guess, like you said, we – including you – have the right to handle things the way we see fit.

      • Janeite says:

        Hi Vesta,
        Yes, I do think that there has been a trend on here lately that I don’t like. Other gossip sites get dissed and an increasing number of comments/observations on the topics of the thread border on the cruel/nasty side. Some of the comments in this thread struck me as good examples of the latter. You and others may not see it that way. Which is perfectly fine.

      • Vesta says:

        Hi again Janeite,
        I haven’t said I all the time unconditionally love every comment & post I’ve seen here… I’m pretty sure nobody does on a gossip site like this. But that doesn’t make those other opinions/styles less acceptable than mine. People have different touches, I find that ok.

        I’m certain that you’ve far more knowledge of what has been going on here. After all, I’m not a regular. The threads are often kilometers (or miles) long – I’m not able to read every TH post and follow everything that’s said. (Also, I would guess in general nobody follows everything and people pick the styles & topics that suit them best.)

        But, from what I’ve seen, I don’t know why it’s so bad if opinions about other gossip sites are expressed… and I don’t see Tom H as some sort of sacred snowflake, which should be discussed only in a certain style that fits my taste and rules. I kind of feel it’s the moderators’ (to whom I send my thankings) job to decide what isn’t appropriate here, not mine.

        (aand I’m also sorry for my looong rambling…)

      • Janeite says:

        My issue with the way other gossip sites are talked about on here is that there have been comments made that they are full of crazy fangirls and obsessives and the implication is that CB is somehow “cooler” than those other sites. That bothers me because they are being castigated for doing the same thing there that we do here. There are people who are overinvested and a little too enthusiastic on other sites and on here as well. No one site is somehow better or worse than any other; it’s just a matter of where someone is comfortable.

        And I don’t think Hiddles is a special snowflake either, or any other person in the limelight for that matter. My observation is more as regards the comments made abiout the women they are spotted with and the judgments made about them. While we are certainly all entitled to our opinions, some of them are expressed in ways that seem downright nasty. I skip right past those comments but yeah, they do seem to be increasing lately, IMHO.

    • 'p'enny says:

      it’s heart wrenching to hear so many cancer stories on this board over the last couple of days. No one is immune. All of us have experienced it, through family, friends or ourselves, we have to work together to beat it, some laugh, some cry, some pray, to paraphrase a cliche.

      This month, i’ll drool over Hiddles on a catwalk and make a contribution somewhere/somehow.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Janeite, so sorry to hear of your brother’s struggle. I do hope he is well and continues to grow stronger. I’ve fought my own battle and gallows humor was very much part of my recovery but i understand that everyone doesn’t get that or may find it inappropriate. I tend to be a bit reserved and people were shocked at things that were coming out of my mouth. I learned to save it for other cancer patients or professional caregivers. “You want me to do what with cornstarch? Seriously?” The last week of radiation treatment, I put a sign up in the staff break room announcing that if anyone in the building had not seen me half naked yet, they only had 5 days to do so. My tech and nurse did a countdown each day. My two oncologists thought it hilarious. The only person who hadn’t seen me half naked was the receptionist and she declined. But for me, if the ribald humor gets one person to think about it and get a life-saving check-up, it is worth it. I would rather the generalized raunchy humor to snipes at an individual’s particular body parts. Going through treatment, I learned (mostly from the providers) that I had beautiful, perfect breasts that few women have and some pay good money to get. But no more. I’m proud of my dents and scars because they are proof that I fought to live and survived and it annoys me when i see men or women critique another women’s breasts.

      • Janeite says:

        Hi Lilac, thanks for your kind words. I’m so sorry for what you went through. My mom and aunt both had breast cancer too. That same aunt went on to die of blood-borne cancer. Another aunt died of pancreatic cancer. I had one grandmother die of ovarian cancer and the other die of a malignant brain tumor. I lost a close friend to bladder cancer when she was 26. I know all about how humor helps in those situations. I guess for me, the main difference here is that so many of the comments seemed to be said in a making fun sort of way, which IMO only adds to the stigma. That may not be how anyone other than me sees it, and that’s fine. But yeah, it was bothering me and I needed to vent. I’m glad I did because it at least opened up a dialogue!

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Thanks, Janeite. It seems your family has been through as much as mine. Two of my cousins and an aunt were going through treatment at the same time I was (prostate, colon, melanoma) and I lost both grandmothers and two other aunts to various cancers and my father and an uncle also had forms of cancer. My cousins and are still here although my aunt sadly did not make it. The chemo I had caused major damage to other body systems and can itself lead to other forms of cancer. We all must cope in our own way. I understand your feelings, I truly do. Hugs and prayers to you. An open dialogue is truly what is needed to get people tested when they can still be helped.

      • Nighty says:

        @Janeite dear, no one would even dare making fun of such an illness, my grandmother also died of cancer, as well as an aunt of mine.
        The joking comments are about Tom, not the cancer…sweetie… I doubt anyone in the world would dare doing that… I understand that it touches you personally this topic, but trust me, no one is making fun of the event, just kidding about Tom..

        Then there’s the part of Tom having the hability to drive us crazy, you know he does that to us… :)
        Kisses sweetie!!

        Love you..

      • Janeite says:

        Thanks, Lilacflowers and Nighty. I appreciate your kindness.

        Lilac-hang in their with your situation. I’ve always found a horrible irony in the fact that chemotherapy can cause it’s own set of evils down the road.

        Nighty, I know you and others here are just having fun (as we do here). I just happen to see this kind of thing a bit differently. I do think a fundraiser like this to raise men’s awareness is an excellent idea. Men tend to neglec their health a lot more than women do.

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        @Janeite – My darling, you know I love you. This is obviously a matter close to your heart. I’ve actually sat back and watched the comments go from fun and light-hearted to some serious stuff with more than a hint of hurt. I don’t like that. We need to have more fun in our lives, especially when we know life is not guaranteed to a certain quantity or quality.

        @Lilacflowers – Happy birthday sweet girl!! I will make a flower birthday message in your garden as well as a floral portrait tribute of Hiddles that you can gaze down upon from your top window. Just tell me which pic you want me to copy! Remember, it will only last until the first gust of wind!!

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Thank you, Secret Squirrel, that floral portrait tribute sounds delightful. The sauna scene from Hollow Crown?

      • Intro Outro says:

        I just want to thank everyone who shared their experiences and thoughts on this matter here. Since my childhood and up till maybe a couple of years ago I believed that speaking about your problems to others makes you look weak. I have been working hard to overcome this psychological barrier because I realised that it devaluated me as a personality. You ladies prove that I am right.

        I also want to say I immensely admire you all for having struggled through your personal hell with such dignity.

      • jammypants says:

        Happy birthday Lilac!

      • Janeite says:

        Secret Squirrel-you always bring a breath of fresh air to CB. Much love to you, little friend!

        Intro Outro-never be afraid to talk about what you have gone through in your life. Not only can it help you heal, but you realize how many others out there can identify with you.

        There’s a saying out there about how none of us ever know what another person may be dealing with. I think a lot of these comments prove that.

    • A.Key says:

      Well not everyone has the same sense of humor. I see Janeite’s point, but I also see everyone else’s. It really depends on whether you find dark non-politically correct humor funny or not, and where you draw the line. But I don’t think anyone here is being purposefully disrespectful or cruel. Different strokes for different folks.

  20. 'p'enny says:

    He looked hot at the Olivier Awards, that Alexander McQueen suit fitted him brilliantly, it had this soft cut, not stiff or corny James Bond polyester style tux. He/suit looked pure class, and i wish we got a proper look at his skull/crossbones cufflinks that apparently he was wearing.

    I think/hope he is modelling the same designer for the charity gig, i just wonder if that all fundraising on the evening, contains the secret date auction idea i had weeks ago! i’ll sue for Hiddleston dating rights if they do :-)

    And, he will have a sexy tan, if he got some sunbathing in, while he was having “fun” in Hawaii. His smile and eyes glowed at the Russian Avengers promo stuff with his Hawaii tan.

  21. Ellen says:

    I’m guessing the clothes are also being auctioned off for charity? If this is the case then Tom needs to buy the lot and not just new suits. Also someone needs to slip in a cap.

    Do you think he’ll look embarssed or will love strutting his booty down the catwalk?

  22. Portia says:

    “The gala involves a Moët & Chandon reception, dinner cooked by a team of Michelin star chefs and a silent auction as well as the runway show.”
    Good lord, that sounds amazing. I wish I was a top hobnobbing celeb and get invited to one of these things. The food alone would be worth it! Yeah, I’m one of those weird ones who always wonders what food they’re serving at these high society celeb events.

    Plus Tom Hiddleston strutting down the runway would be the ultimate cherry on top of that evening.

    Ah, guess I’ll just have to settle for looking at the pics and continuing my the hum drum life of a pleb :(

    • Isadora says:

      Aaah, yeah… I’m not sure if I would find all the celeb buzz, champagne and haute cuisine funny and delightful (for a time) or incredibly annoying. But it would be worth a try. ;-)

      The food? My guess: it will be very tasty, tiny portions, there’s bound to be some lobster (goes well with the champagne) and/or caviar and I really hope they stop with the horrible foie gras stuff. And there will be some silliness, like naming appetizers or sides after desserts or similar stuff (like Parmesan & black truffles “cappuccino” instead of just a peasanty “soup”)…

      • Nighty says:

        parmesan & black truffles cappuccino = soup? nice…

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Given the event, naming the appetizers and desserts could get a bit bizarre.

      • Portia says:

        Since its Michelin star chefs, I’m sure the food will be magnificent. Something that’ll cost a year of my humble salary. Boo.

        @Isadora, yeah I dunno if I’d enjoy the company or conversations very much at these high society events, being a boring Joe Schmoe myself, but I’m sure I’ll scarf down those gourmet meals and expensive champagne like there’s no tomm! Probably gonna need to wear a loose flowing gown instead of those fitted ones so I don’t pop a seam or two, eek. And you know OBVIOUSLY go home with the lovely Tom Hiddleston at the end of the night.
        Har har I love day dreaming about bring posh. It’s easy and comes without the actual hassle of being posh lol

  23. Amulla says:

    Its true that testicular cancer – and all other forms of cancer – are completely denied any focus or attention because they are drowned out by the pink breast cancer campaign of Susan G Komen. Its a shame that one particular cancer charity has completely monopolized everything, and even scared women into believing their chances of getting breast cancer are far worse than what they actually are.

  24. Lilacflowers says:

    Since I read about this event yesterday, Right Said Fred’s “Too Sexy” has been stuck in my head and sure enough, people have made not one, but two videos using it for Tom.

  25. Altariel says:

    Love my Tom. Love my Loki. He totally Hiddle’d me, Loki’d me whatever….I’m loving it!

    I’ve been trolling for news, and as you say, not much out there. But there is a little tidbit about the Cards for Keeps that he did for charity auction on ebay…. the card he drew, of a little person hugging a huge heart (awww) got THE HIGHEST BID! The auction included, ahem, the “other guy” (Cumberbatch) and Arthur Darvill. Tom actually beat out the other guy on something, although his came close. I think Tom’s earned something like $4,000.00 U.S. My apology if this has already been mentioned in this thread…gonna go back now and read. You ladies KILL it!!

    So a little bit of triumphant news to tide us over. Wish wish wish Only Lovers Left Alive was actually playing somewhere!

  26. Lilacflowers says:

    Totally off-topic, but since when did that ever stop anyone. Has anyone seen the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Henry IV with Antony Sher? If yes, is it worth spending a mid-summer evening in a tiny dark theater for the broadcast?

  27. There is a Samuel L. Jackson “All these Motherf***in balls on my Motherf***in catwalk” joke in there somewhere…I’m just not on my game tonight…

    Oh, and Hiddles Skivvies.

    Say that three times fast.

  28. Altariel says:

    And we SOO need the rest of the Avengers on that runway too. Or any runway for that matter. Loki is King, but I think I’d pass out seeing Chris Evans rocking it. And Chris H. And RDJ. Damn, these guys are the best. And Tom’s got a bromance with all of them, lol.

  29. Virgilia says:

    My wish list for clothing to be modelled by suave Mr. Hiddleston…
    1. Leather trousers. TIGHT leather trousers. Matching jacket.
    2. Blue jeans. TIGHT blue jeans. Plaid shirt and Doc Maartens. Sort of Donmar Coriolanus meets lumberjack.
    3. Something professorish… tweeds, layers, horn rim glasses, corduroy blazer, trench coat…
    4. Tennis whites.
    5. Speedos and a towel around his neck.
    6. I wouldn’t mind getting another look at the gauzy “Gown of Humility” from Coriolanus. It was a Good Look.

    Actually, it doesn’t matter what he’s wearing. I just want to watch him walk that runway, as often as possible. I love the way he moves, graceful and powerful, imposing and sensual, all at the same time.

    • Altariel says:

      Oh, those moves! He’s a natural runway model…that or he does it on purpose to make us mental.

    • icerose says:

      Oh yes to the gown of humility. The first time I saw it on stage it was totally unexpected. I was sitting in the perfect position and my mouth just fell open. But then a few months later I saw Russel Tovey and his co star in The Pass in their underwear discussing their very obvious bonners about 3 feet away from me. And do not get me going on the naked Fool in the Nationals King Lear who at one point when he was holding up a rag to hIs body looked like he was also holding a 12 inch penis. As I said to someone recently -there was a time when we went to the Chippendales now its even better because we get some great acting thrown in as well.

    • Virgilia says:

      I recently read about Hugh Jackman’s nude scene in the new X-Men film, and he said he was fitted with a cock sock for modesty’s sake. I think Tom could be fitted with something similar for a catwalk in the Gown of Humility.

      In fact, I volunteer to customize such a cock sock for Tom, tailored to his measurements and desires. Free fittings included, of course.

  30. Ellen says:

    Any idea if Hiddles is back from Tahite (sp?) yet? People are going to be on the look out for him to find out who he took with him. It’s probably Isadora.
    I’m guessing he has no wifi out there as there has been quite a few events that happened he’d normally comment on on twitter.

  31. I watched Thor 2 Only because of Tom and Now i will watch Only Lovers Left Alive

  32. joe spider says:

    @ Intro Outro says:
    May 30, 2014 at 1:46 am
    BY THE WAY. I know of only one appearance of that extremely rare creature called The Embarrassed Hiddle and it was when he read Cumby’s zygoma reddit quote :D Can anyone name other appearances of The Embarrassed Hiddle?

    Sorry I’m a bit late, been to bed since you posted I think! When he was interviewed about The Deep Blue Sea he was asked if it was his first nude scene and he said “yes” – I swear there was a hint of a blush.

    • 'p'enny says:

      definitely a hint of a blush.

      i think as well, at Comic-con when the guy in the audience shouted out, ‘my wife loves you.’ i think if it wasn’t for the white make-up he would have been scarlet.

      I think he was squirmingly embarrassed ‘a bit’ on Top Gear, as well. He looked well out of his comfort zone. He couldn’t stop playing with his hair, i thought it was the most nervy that i had ever seen him. But, he was under a lot of stress in those weeks. Probably the cherry on the cake after Marvel released his Thor audition! that should have been embarrassing for him.

      • joe spider says:

        True, I never did understand why Marvel released his Thor audition after all this time, and after the success he brought them with Loki. But then I couldn’t understand all the cuts they made to TTDW either.

      • Altariel says:

        The cuts were just stupid in Thor TDW. The movie wasn’t all that long, they could have easily left them in the film. After all, didn’t they bring him back for more Loki scenes anyway? Maybe just another attempt to keep Loki from seeming too sympathetic, just like they did in Thor…those cuts were just tragic!

      • Lilacflowers says:

        When nervous during interviews, he plays with his hair, his ear, and grabs his calf, which is usually swinging wildly.

      • Intro Outro says:

        Awww poor Hiddles on Top Gear, he was indeed really embarrassed – and blushed! – when they showed how he failed to set off :D I forgot about it! And I also thought that, considering how awful the weather conditions were, he really shouldn’t have been embarrassed about his lap time.

        Releasing his Thor auditioning was mean :D I couldn’t watch it without blushing myself! However, he commented on it somewhere basically explaining that at the time when he was auditioning, producers, writers and Branagh hadn’t yet decided which qualities of Thor from comics they were going to take as a basis for the cinematic Thor, hence his take on the character for the auditioning was not as out of place as it seems to be today after CHemboy’s Thor who we all are used to.

      • Intro Outro says:

        P.S. Tom’s voice is all but ruined in Top Gear. Poor thing. I guess this carried into his Jaguar commercial, too. I wish I were there with a cup of hot tea and honey for him.

      • Isadora says:

        Ha, I forgot about Top Gear. Yes, he was very much afraid of his lap time, poor thing.

        Hot tea and honey? Oh yes. I’d take good care of him, I’d give him a blend of plantain leaf, marshmallow root and liquorice root, perfect for a rough voice.

      • icerose says:

        Intro Outro His voice was pretty hoarse in live broad cast as well-I saw him just before he came down with cold/virus and towards the end and the change was very noticeable .I was actually quite worried that he might damage his voice

    • Nighty says:

      Upthread… I posted a link… On this link he keeps playing with his tie… can’t stand being quite with the hands.. He isn’t so shyless as one might think… he just disguises it pretty well…
      at the beginning, minute 3 and almost at the end…

    • icerose says:

      it was his first nude love scene -he was starkers’ in Unrelated.

    • Anne tommy says:

      Maybe slightly embarrassed but more giggly when slumber party josh asked hiddles if he’d ever seen chris hemsworth naked….I have no doubt he’ll do a good job modelling, he’s a very graceful mover, as can be seen in the avengers when loki is disguised as a human, is wearing a suit, having just removed that poor man’s eye with some sort of corkscrew thing, ands walks down a flight of stairs. Lovely. Not hoping for a bow tie and socks outfit though, sounds far too Chippendale-y.we will expect lots of pictures Kaiser!

  33. Ppp12 says:

    My belief that Arthy is more than just a casual Fwb is growung stronger by the day. She started following the travel planner. And everyone is calling her a desperate fangirl. But almost no one mentioned that the travel lady is actuallytuallt following Arthy too. She started following Hiddles and Arthy around the same time. My guess is that Hiddles has long been with this woman and he said in the interviews that he’s single just to keep that aspect of his life private. I mean, come on, what’s soooo wrong if he lied? He owes his fans nothing more than wonderful performances. Also, about Arthy favoriting Hiddles related stuff, it may be a) she doesn’t know at all that it is easily viewable or b) she’s messing with the fans’ minds and having a private laugh about it.

    • Ellen says:

      I don’t care if my celebrity crush has a gf or not but there is something about her I don’t like.
      Don’t give me that she doesn’t know that we can’t see her interactions on twitter. She’s been trying to associate herself with him for a year now. If she’s not a fangirl she’s definitely a fanbaiter.
      She’s also back on twitter
      Travel lady doesn’t follow Hiddles

      • Hannah says:

        Travel lady has been following him for a while.

      • kaisei says:

        Ellen, travel lady follows Hiddles but she didn’t start around the same time she followed JA back, she started a long time ago, you need to go back a lot in her followings to find him. Considering she follows a large number of famous people, Goop, Kate Moos etc it’s not such a big deal. More importantly, Hiddles doesn’t follow her back.

        I’m with you about JA knowing how to use twitter, she has been a user since 2009 and she is in PR, if she doesn’t know about favourites by now, she should change job.
        As for JA doing things to make fun of us, pfff. Am I the only one who remembers her major account clean up last year?

        Ppp12, no Hiddleston doesn’t owe anything to anyone, but a person who takes pride about being a stand up, honest guy could have answered quite differently to those questions. For example, a simple “I’d rather not talk about my private life”. If he said that he is single and that JA was nothing home to write about, it’s because he meant it.
        And there’s is nothing private if the other part, JA, makes her obsession about him public. Your scenario would have worked if JA had stopped following him on Twitter as well.

      • Hannah says:

        She also cleaned up her account again more recently. It seems like she’s deleted the tweets that weren’t work-related.

      • kaisei says:

        @Hannah, I see, I guess she moved all of her not work-related to her favourites.
        She had some very embarrassing tweet last year.

      • Nighty says:

        Why can’t I post a link? What’s wrong? It’s the 3rd time I’m not allowed…
        Ok, look up naughtyhiddles on tumblr’d … there’s a post of a screening twitter message to jane arthy stating “you know he’s only using you.. “

      • Hannah says:

        I remember those tweets. The user wrote both to Tom and JA. What’s weird though is that they originally went by a female name then changed it to a male name.

      • kaisei says:

        Hannah, yes, she would write about her sex dreams and other stuff I don’t remember. Coincidentally, when she did this last year, somebody on DL trolled that TH was going to introduce her as his gf at the GQ man of the year award and most people fell for that, taking it as proof it was true.
        Of course it was false, he showed up alone and left alone, so everybody went on making fun of JA and her spring cleaning.

      • Nighty says:

        Posted her SEX dreams on the Internet?? Is she insane? Dumb??? WHAT??
        Oh God..

      • Froop says:


        Hah I remember those. Sex dreams about One Direction, to be more accurate. Yeah.

        (and this was posted a couple of years ago, when those boys were about 16)

      • Nighty says:

        Are you telling me she had sex dreams about One Direction and posted them online????

        *in a state of horror, disgust and incredulity..*

      • Froop says:

        Yep, that’s one of her old tweets that has probably been deleted. I haven’t checked to see if it’s still there but I bet it isn’t. It definitely was there though! There was also a tweet about visiting a sex shop during her lunch break…

        All of her more personal stuff was deleted a while ago so I think she’s been Googling herself + Tom.

      • Sighs says:

        I would be embarrassed to even have sex dreams about one direction, let alone tweet them.

    • A.Key says:

      Or, she’s overly attached and borderline obsessed :D

    • Portia says:

      The travel lady followed Arthy recently but she’s been following TH way before that. His name is so much further down her list. Like past Mitt Romney which makes me think it might have been around US Presidential election time but who knows. She definitely did not follow JA and Hiddles at the same time.
      And if the two are together, it’s one HELL of a warped relationship with her following everything on twitter related to him while he follows only one band of hers which he followed the same time as he followed her before unfollowing her after Wimbledon. The way she tracks TH on twitter means either she’s extremely insecure or she doesn’t trust him. The whole following Hayley Atwell for a few hours during the Oliviers was so weird.

      If they are together then TH has terrible taste in women for being with a chic like her who is either fan baiting (classless and juvenile for a woman in her 30s) or homegurl’s got some severe trust issues with TH. My original belief of her being an ex still stands. Just the way she monitors TH and his projects and whatnot is typical of an ex or ex fwb who can’t let go. A current girlfriend or even fwb (who keeps a fwb for that long btw) of almost a year does not act this way. I could be wrong but the facts just don’t seem supportive of JA and TH having a relationship. Or at least not a healthy one.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Sure, Pp12, because what she does with her twitter account is more revealing than the facts like: she didn’t attend a single performance of the two month run of Coriolanus or that they have not been seen arriving/leaving an event or place together since last July. Yes, they were seen talking at a cafe but arrived separately and left separately, obviously a plot to confuse people.

    • JulK says:

      The travel planner follows a lot of people and she had followed Hiddles way back.
      Is it me or is odd that a London based person uses an LA travel agency to book holidays?? It’s not like there are no luxury travel agencies in London and if fangirl is booking it, why use a n LA based one??
      In any case, I have to say that I find the “relationship” odd. If they are together and they are keeping it quiet, why does she follow his projects?? Why does she follow the travel agent??

      Also, when you are with someone you start meeting their friends so why is it that no known Hiddles friend follows her on twitter (other than his assistant)?? It would be normal, especially on those circles where everyone follow everyone. I always found it a bt odd how sanitised things are. I understand his need for privacy, but there is a difference between privacy and hidden. Let’s face it, he is not that famous to hide and if indeed this was happening, she is doing a crap job at keeping it quite. It is almost as she wants people to know (particularly, his fans), which I always found distasteful.

      My guesses of all of these things are either 1) This is part of FWB part PR stunt. After all, the whole meltdown brought him over 1m followers on twitter at a time when he was promoting movies and he was trying to set upmore projects. That was massive hit for him 2) They are having fun and its not serious. I always found it very interesting in the elle interview when he was asked about his relationships and then asked what kind of boyfriend he was: First thing that came up was “Honest”. It is not the first thing that usually comes up from a committed boyfriend. However, in my experience, when they say Honest is becasue they have pre-stated something, which is usually: “I need to keep this casual or I have too much work and I cannot coming full time or no strings”. That way, you know what you are getting into.

      I don’t think I know him well enough, but from the way he speaks about his university gf and the pics with Susannah, I thought Hiddles would be the kind to fall head over heels for someone. In this case, I don’t get that vibe from him. I don’t buy the ” keep it quite to protect her”, you want to protect her you keep her close to you and you show her your support.

      The trip, I don’t know. Maybe he is lonely and wanted to take holidays. Let’s face it, it sucks going on holidays alone. Sure, his sister can join him, but she may have work or be busy. If you have a fangirl who is at your beck and call and you can afford taking her… may be easier. Again, massively assumming its fangirl he is with.

      Lastly, why has hiddles decided to follow fans?? He barely posts on twitter anymore (maybe because he doesn’t have anything to promote) and then he follows fans???

      Sorry about the massive post. First time and being reading too much of previous posts.

    • Hannah says:

      What about the pictures of them at the BFI in December ? Because that was definitely her.

    • Leah says:

      The fact that he plays his love life cards so close to his vest just makes his fans more desperate for information and given to fanciful theories. Of course, since hes had his Twitter and Facebook hacked, had both girlfriends and female friends harassed by crazy fan girls and been stalked himself he has good reasons to be cautious.

    • jammypants says:

      Am I the only person who doesn’t care about JA? Whether they dated or not? Like really. Just can’t care. I know people think she’s a stalker but that’s sort of going on here too isn’t it? :p

    • Janeite says:

      I will say this about Ppp12, whoever they may be. This person rarely comments but when they do, it’s to drop some sort of rehashed gossip bomb and then a ton of comments follow. I have to wonder if they post only because it amuses them to stir things up. 40+ comments, just from one remark by Ppp12. Whoever they are, they know what to say to get everyone fired up.

      • jammypants says:

        It always blows my mind that two photos of them sitting with each other at Wimbledon can create so much speculation, one year later. It makes my head dizzy.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @jammypants, as I’ve said before, if that plus twitter-following is what equates to a serious hidden relationship, well, I’m secretly married to Chris Evans and I’m a polygamist who is also married to Mark Wahlberg, former Governor Mike Dukakis, former Celtic player Cedric Maxwell, and one of the NKOTB, whose name I never remember. I’m also having torrid affairs with George Takei and Ian McKellan. People go on dates all the time that materialize into absolutely nothing and never date beyond two or three times and when they are asked a year later how that relationship is going, they are usually stunned that anyone would ask. I can’t understand why so many insist that because two people attended a tennis match together months ago, they are still a couple despite all appearances (or lack thereof) to the contrary. And i don’t care about that woman either.

      • Intro Outro says:

        Wait. I’ve only been following Tom’s career since this winter and I have to confess I just went with the flow on this whole JA thing assuming there was some other proof besides that Wimbledon photo – be it pap photos where her face is clearly visible or something of the kind, some reports of sightings by trustworthy users – and you ladies are telling me that *that* photo is the only clear proof of them ever being together as a couple? And they have never actually been seen attending any type of events together? And Tom has never commented on the matter? o_O If it is so – then this is indeed the biggest storm in the smallest teacup that I’ve ever seen lol.

        Haha to me she had it planned. Being the fangirl she is and judging from her twitter, she knew exactly what he likes and what to say to him. She’s a fangirl who got lucky and got to bed him. If she would still like him when the fame goes is another thing.
        Sure we’d love for him to fall head of heels in loves with a woman who’s kind and humble but the fact is he’s now associated himself to and utter fangirl and fanbaiter.

      • Portia says:

        How do we know JA and TH live near each other? I’ve heard this before but never found out where it came from.

        Also, I thought JA and TH met when he went to Glastonbury for some music festival and watched The Foals, one of the bands JA plugs for. He started following her on twitter exactly when he followed The Foals. This was 2 weeks before Wimbledon, that’s why I always thought they met then and that she got carried away at Wimbledon acting like his gf when they’d probably been seeing each other for a very short time.

        Btw, JA doesn’t is not a manager of anything. She’s a plugger, she makes sure bands get promoted on different radio stations – their songs, interviews, upcoming gigs, etc. But only on the radio. She’s not label head or music exec. Not even close.

      • 'p'enny says:


        Jane is Clint’s UK Manager. But, her day job at the moment is Head of Radio Promotions at Warner Brothers.

      • Sarah says:

        That’s exactly what I think Ellen. “Jane gone fishin’” indeed!

      • Portia says:


        Really? She’s his manager and she acts like this? Oh my god how embarrassing. I always figured ppl who manage bands or music artists were very strong alpha personalities. Not desperate fangirl types. Especially not at JA’s age.

        Maybe she should hire Luke as PR to fix her image because it is so unflattering right now.

      • Hannah says:


        It came from the tweets a local (?) wrote to them at the end of September. They tweeted Tom with “talk about loving thy neighbour” or something like that.

      • belle says:

        @Hannah I’m fairly certain that whole thing was part of a sham created by the DataLounge regulars to run the Hiddleston fans off the board. The twitter account was completely fishy and only appeared after people questioned the DL regulars’ fake stories about seeing Tom around London with JA. I was an active DL lurker at the time (late Fall of 2013, I believe), but the regulars and the fans just got so crazy that it wasn’t even worth reading anymore. :P

      • Hannah says:


        I was a regular lurker too. I looked up the twitter account at that time and there were older tweets so it was not created to that end.

      • Froop says:

        Well… there’s no proof that those DL sightings were true, but no proof that they were fake either. There was some tea on DL last summer before the threads started getting shut down.
        Those loving thy neighbour tweets were weird as F, because they apparently came from a guy who had seen them together, and it linked in with the DL stuff because the guy who tweeted that stuff was probably an estate agent.

      • Portia says:


        Ah, I see. Thanks!


        I’m with you. I take everything from DL with a grain of salt. It’s just odd that if JA and TH live near each other, and apparently so close that they can run into each other, why would JA need a 3rd party to introduce them? If she was his neighbor, I’d figure she’d make the moves on him asap, going by how big a fangirl she seems. Unless she moved into the neighborhood post Wimbledon then w o w, that’s really unsettling then.

        Anyways, TH has never hid his girlfriends so I highly doubt he’s doing it now. It was probably a casual dating thing and he moved on after he figured out she’s another fangirl, albeit higher in the hierarchy of fangirls. Now she’s just fan baiting like Ellen said and feeling superior to other fangirls lol I’m sorry but her behavior is SO not that of a serious gf/ friend or serious anything. It’s obvious TH either ignores her or keeps her arm’s length, and she’s using twitter to try and keep up the charade that something is going on. If there is, it’s certainly not enviable.

      • Isadora says:

        I’m not sure about his neighborhood (never been to London) but I live in a big city and someone can live 10 min. away from me and I’d probably still hardly ever see/meet him. A childhood friend of mine lives .. like.. 7 min. away from me, our schools were 10 min. apart and I only met her again at university because we were in the same course.

        And although I think TH would make a serious girlfriend official, I want to stress the word “serious”. Because in the past he wasn’t as famous as now and things have changed a bit, I’d say. If you get stalked and secretly filmed when you are buying a damn postcard (or what they were doing in this shop) then I’d say you think twice about exposing a girl to this madness. And I speak hypothetically, of course. I still have no opinon on the JA thing.

      • Portia says:

        I guess Isadora but I don’t think TH would hide a gf to protect her to this extent. He stated in interviews he was single, it got officially printed he’s single. I mean it’s just insulting and disrespectful to a person if they are willing to be associated with you, like JA is trying so hard to do, and you keep denying any public association with them.

        Whatever these two have or had or whatever, it’s obvious TH wasn’t and isn’t serious about it but she seems really invested in him. It’s just interesting that whenever TH is spotted with a woman that’s hard to identify, every one always thinks it’s JA when he’s made it clear he’s not with her as much as he can without being rude or divulging too much about his private life.

        Anyways, best to wait for an official red carpet or shopping in the market together out in the open pics or a clear statement from TH himself for who he’s dating or his gf is. Until then c’est la vie and let’s enjoy some pretty Hiddles in some sexy clothes! This LCM ball cannot come soon enough!

  37. Nighty says:

    Oh whatever… if they are / were / will be b*nging fine… lol… Wonder if he did to her the snake’s hips in bed and she went wild and now can’t live without that “move”…

    @Janeite you’re right about PP12 or whatever the name, (too long to scroll up again and find the name…).. but I guess it’s more curiosity, plus I’m bored to death, it’ midnight I wanna sleep and there’s a stupid concert with awful music down the street.. Makes it impossible to sleep… wish they’d shut up…

    • Janeite says:

      Hey Nighty, no worries. Gossip all you want. I was just making the observation about that particular poster and how they appear to operate.

      I don’t know anything about Jane Arthy. How she handles her Twitter account isn’t enough for me to be able to form an opinion of her. And that story about her berating an assistant in public or something like that is just a story. It may not be true so I’m not even going to take that into consideration. She may be a likeable person; she may not. She may deliberately be trying to make it look like there’s something going on with her and Hiddles or she may not. If she is a girlfriend, I’m sure it will come out sooner or later.

      I like Tom Hiddleston and I enjoy talking about him. His love life is only one of many things that make him interesting to me.

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        @Nighty and Janeite – Like you, I don’t know enough about JA to form an opinion as I don’t go near twitter or tumblr, but the thought has occurred to me that if she was his squeeze at some point and they are now friends or FWB, she could be totally smitten with him and actually stand to get quite hurt when he finds a serious girlfriend. Her online actions seem to point to her being pretty keen to keep up with everything he does but he has been “putting it about” since July last year when she was linked to with him at Wimbledon, indicating the relationship was either dead in the water or very open. Again, CB is my only real source of information on celebs so I might not have the well-rounded overview to make such observations!

        I may not agree with JA’s perceived fangirl behavior, but nobody deserves to be in love with someone who doesn’t love them back. I’ve been there and it hurts like hell. And her heartbreak would play out in public which would be even harder to take.

        I’m much more interested in Tom’s acting ability/role choices than his interview ability or sexual ability. I might jest a bit on this site, but I would never be so bold in person! The constant stream of women wanting to be around/photographed with him must be getting tiring for him. Yes, he would enjoy it when he chooses to be sociable, but he is being asked for autographs at 3am when he (and all the other actors) had to turn up to the set again early the next morning. That line in the sand of giving too much to the fans was crossed and now he has to reel it back in again.

  38. Dara says:

    I need a Tom Hiddleston post every day – the comments alone are by far the most entertaining part! I think I’ve found my people…

    I’m going to try and keep this short (as if), but I look on all of the speculation about any potential couple being seen/not seen together in public or at events in a different way. To my mind, the industry events (premieres, red carpets, award shows, etc.) are his job and no matter how glamourous and fun they may seem, I’m guessing they are a nerve-wracking proposition and require serious preparation, concentration and effort. There are enough things to worry about without adding a date (serious or not) into the mix.

    There is no way I would want my significant other coming within a mile of me when I’m working (and no one is posting my job on YouTube). If I were the significant other I would be all, “No thanks, you’re a big boy and don’t need me there to hold your hand – just make sure your fly is zipped and your makeup is on straight. Text me when your done – I’ll be at the bar in the lobby.” If you’re not in the biz and don’t need the exposure, who needs the hassle?

  39. Intro Outro says:

    Look what I’ve just come across! It’s a teaser for Hiddleston’s second Jaguar commercial, I never even knew it existed:

    I remember we all discussed what was in the beg. Well… I guess this teaser answers the question :D

  40. Ellen says:

    Let’s face it. We’re only talking about TH being linked to fangirl Jane because of HER actions.
    As many people pointed out in the Wimbledon photos the only time we actually see them together, Hiddles doesn’t even really acknowledge her and had his hand TOGETHER at one point.

    After there’s a rumor about them spotted, fangirl Jane goes on twitter and adds more speculation.

    So for the hundredth time I don’t think he’s trying to protect her. She certainly doesn’t need protecting or wants it going by her actions.

    Now for important news. Is he doing swimwear at the fashion thing?

  41. Virgilia says:

    Personally, I think Tom is using this vacay for some career planning and soul searching. Consider his activities of the past seven months. He’s just gone from a very demanding stage role, and its related stage-door appearances, to making a film in another country. He appears to have lost some of his personal life in the process. It just seems, to me, that he can’t squeeze in much of a romantic life in his spare time. And I think that right now his career is his top priority.

    Tom hasn’t kept his past relationships secret. I think that when he does embark on a new relationship, he will be happy to share the info. In the meantime, I think the only serious romantic relationship he has these days is with his left hand.

    • M.A.F. says:

      Wouldn’t he be righty since he writes with his right?

      • Nighty says:

        lol… @M.A.F. .. you gotta a point there…

      • Lilacflowers says:

        He’s right-handed. He has more dexterity with his left than most right-handed people but that is probably due to being physically active and needing to develop the non-dominant hand. And proper table etiquette training, which a child at the Dragon School most likely had, would have taught him to use a fork with his left hand.

      • Nighty says:

        @Lilac, got lost with your comment about Dragon School… I use the left hand for the fork, and didn’t go to Dragon School.. or any public expensive posh school… Is there anywhere in the world where it’s the opposite way around???

      • joe spider says:

        Beat me to it Nighty – I’m a lefty and I use fork in left hand and knife in right. Although I do use me spoon in my left hand.

      • Anne tommy says:

        Please let’s not go there, there’s been soooooo much manly parts banter already…oh alright, if you must…

      • Sighs says:

        This is weird! I never knew this was a thing. I had to google it. In America we tend to cut with it in the left, but eat on the right, tines up. Europeans are completely on the left, tines down. I think I sort of use a hybrid method, or switch between the two. It’s odd because I’ve noticed watching a lot of Brit TV people eating that way and I thought it looked odd. When you watch American TV next time, watch how they eat. It’s definitely different.
        Apparently the back and forth, or switching hands actually originated in Europe, and was brought to the US. But then Europeans went to the more efficient left hand only.
        You learn something new every day.

      • A.Key says:

        Except nobody eats like that here in Europe, unless they’re at some really fancy formal “stiff-upper-lip” occasion. The majority of us peasant masses eat with the forks in our right hands on a common daily basis. Unless you’re left-handed.

      • Nighty says:

        Ended up googling it.. what a mess.. thought it was like I do all over the world…
        napkin, fork on the left, sou spoon, knife on the right….
        The things one learns in CB… This is a place for general culture, definitely. :)

        @Sighs tines up /down? What’s that? What does that mean?

      • Nighty says:

        @A.Key sorry but that’r where you’re wrong,,,, everybody in Portugal uses the fork with the left hand… everybody… so don’t generalize here in Europe,. if you go to a restaurant, even if it’s not a fancy one… napkin and fork on the left, soup spoon and knife on the right.. I also lived in Austria, most of my friends were from different countries , France, Spain, etc.. and fork was on the left hand…

      • Isadora says:

        What Nighty said!

        I somehow started to eat “wrong” (fork right, knife left) and my parents pointed it out in every damn restaurant.

      • Nighty says:

        There’s only “one” dish I would use the right hand for the fork, and that’s the etiquette for that particular dish: spaghetti… out of respect for our italian friends traditions

      • Isadora says:

        Yes, because you eat spaghetti only with a fork. (The spoon is for people who also don’t eat Chinese food with chopsticks. *g*) When there’s no knife, the fork is in the right hand (also with desserts like cake and a pastry fork). Or at least that’s what I learned from my parents. *shrug*

        Btw… is there a video/picture of Tom eating with proper cutlery? Just wondering hehe.. I think you can see so much about a person in the way they eat.

      • Nighty says:

        Yep Isadora… that’it…

        On another note: could we drop the expression “us peasants”… it’s too “goopish” and frankly kinda silly..

      • Sighs says:

        Nighty- tines up is using it like a spoon, to scoop.

        And I think that’s maybe what AKey was talking about. Generally we use forks with our right, but with cutting the fork is left.

        Some of us are just not coordinated enough to use chopsticks!

      • Nighty says:

        chopsticks are complicated, especially if it’s rice… with a little practice, the rest works… but not the rice.. nope… I have a friend that eats with chopsticks just like a chinese… it’s amazing…
        ok… 99% of the time I use the left… even without knife,,,, but then again my Mum was very “etiquett-ish”… She used to say, if you do it all the time, then in a more fancy situation you’ll have no trouble..
        I’ve already noticed that I even eat pizza with knife and fork, and also shrimp, even when I’m alone at home… *blushes – my mum… what she did to me… lol*

      • Isadora says:

        I never said that it looks good when I use chopsticks! *lol* As to rice, the problem is that we are used to eat very “elegantly” and thats not quite possible with chopsticks and rice, imho. Most Asian people kind of gobble their rice down if it’s not sticky enough.

        Oh… and Tom seems to use his right hand too, when only eating with a fork.
        Example: (fork left, knife right) (fork right)

        What a totally random information. *lol* I have too much time. Or rather: I procrastinate too much.

      • Nighty says:

        Sure, if I only have rice or salad in my plate, i’ll go with the right hand sometimes, though I use the knife to push the food on the fork.. lol… but as I said downthread, can’t cut with the left… no strength for that…
        Good to know how he eats…
        * jee.. I gotta get a life.. . I’m actually discussing which hand he uses to eat???? *

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Nighty, when setting a table, Americans place the fork on the left but use it in whichever hand is the dominant one. It is how our spies used to get caught.

      • Kate2 says:

        I only recently noticed the tines-down thing in UK films. I also noticed that both the fork and knife are held at once. I kinda like that way of eating.

        Lilac flowers is right in that in America the fork is set on the left but is used by the dominant hand. I was also taught to cut 4 pieces at a time, then knife down and eat what you have cut, with a tines up fork. And absolutely no elbows on the table.

        I don’t generally follow the four pieces at a time rule anymore though.

      • Intro Outro says:

        I usually just do as Kate2: fork in left hand, knife in right, cut several pieces, change hands and eat. When there *is* anything to cut. Nothing to cut -> fork in right hand and no care in the world.

      • A.Key says:

        Well this escalated quickly, lol! Yes it’s true that table etiquette at restaurants prescribes that the fork is set on the left and the knife on the right, I know that. But I’ve honestly yet to encounter anyone eating so properly at home or in the majority of his everyday situations, when they’re not in a restaurant for dinner. But ok, yes I was generalizing, clearly many people eat “properly”. Unlike me, the peasant.

      • Nighty says:

        So many traditions, ways of using cutlery… amazing….
        * I really need to get a life… *

      • icerose says:

        I always eat with my knife in my right hand and fork in the left even when at home or on my own. All my family did even though we lived in Canada for many years my parents felt it was bad manners not too. It was how I was raised and any other way feels very strange. although I must admit sometimes when eating curry which requires no knife I do use the fork in the right but not always.

      • Isadora says:

        I cut one piece at a time at the restaurant. Never heard of the four pieces rule.

        At home I hardly ever cut anything lol… I live on salads, curry, pasta, sandwiches, soups and stews.

    • Abby_J says:

      I don’t know. If you believe the Tumblr sites. he might have to use both hands.

      Can you imagine having a site to speculate on how umm….well built you are? I would think that would be VERY odd.

      • pru says:

        he might have to use both hands……….lol. I’m bit ashamed of myself for imagining that!
        It must be so, so creepy to have fan sites to every aspect of your person and personal life. And not knowing if the fans you meet on set, at premieres, on the street, etc are the same people that are obsessing over every inch of you. I don’t think I could handle it, no matter how much I loved my job. I don’t know how he handles it. It must take a psychological toll.

      • Isadora says:

        Well, he does not exactly try hard to hide it, going commando and all…

        I just tried to imagine what I would feel like if the internet would be totally excited over the perfection of my tatas and… I think I could handle that. *lol* Will never happen of course.

      • nicknack says:

        There is a fangirl in her 30′s who has a tumblr which she fills with photos of Tom and all she discusses is how much she wants to have sex with him and obsesses about his crotch. The creepy thing about her is that she’s met him a couple of times and for the past few months has been showing up where he lives. She travels into London to attend acting classes one or two days per week and then surreptitiously hangs around the cafe he’s known to visit and drinks in the pub opposite where he lives, she even tweets them regularly. She’s utterly delusional because she’s tweeted Luke and Tom in the past and they know she’s a fangirl so if she bumps into Tom practically on his doorstep, does she think he’s going to invite her in for a cup of tea?

      • Isadora says:

        Oh creepy…. And don’t these people ever think? I mean, if I would like to be a creepy stalker I’d do my best to appear totally innocuous. She’s attending acting classes, if she ever runs into him she should be able to pull off an accidental bump, “oh, I’m so incredibly sorry!… aren’t you… an actor or something? you appear familiar.” etc. lol

        No such thing as a known fangirl. Very unprofessionally stalkerish.

      • Kate2 says:

        Ok that is creepy as shit. Let’s please not spend any time discussing or pondering how the poor man masturbates. Come on.

      • Kate2 says:

        Nicknack- that is straight up f’ed up. As much crap as we all gave Gwyneth and Charlize for what they said about press and fan intrusion (they deserved it for making the comparisons so I’m not suddenly defending them), I hear about freaks like this and I can’t help wonder if they’ve at least got a point. This is full stop stalking and it would creep me the hell out if someone did that to me. Just because you pursue acting and become famous doesn’t mean you have to tolerate this crap.


      • Nighty says:

        But most people aren’t discussing that.. come back to the upthread post on cutlery… quite interesting the traditions in countries… that’s not invasion of privacy…

      • Kate2 says:

        @nighty – you’re right. My bad. I hit reply and overreacted before I fully read the replies. Sorry.

        I just like this site and so I would hate it if it turned into a weirdo stalker fan site for TH, MF, BC or anyone else and I got a little freaked when I thought I saw that subject touched on. Again, a completely unfair overreaction on my part.

  42. Ellen says:

    Dragon school? Why did he go to a dragon school? I hought he’d be more Hogwarts. I can see him being a ravenclaw hanging out with Luna lovegood.

    As LilacFlowers has taken Chris Evans and Isadora is on vacation with Hiddles, can I have the bad boy of them all Fassy? All this TH talk makes me want a bit of rough! Lol ;-)

    • Isadora says:

      Totally Ravenclaw. Fassy would be Gryffindor, though. And Chris Evans? Probably Hufflepuff. He seems like a good friend and relaxed, funny person.

      And you, Ellen? ;-)

      • Ellen says:

        @isadora my dear I’m in Giffindor with Fassy. I can see fassy like Sirus maybe Benny would be his James.
        Talking of James I can see mr McAvoy in with Draco and co.
        I’m guessing the sorting hat has you Ravenclaw as well?

      • Isadora says:

        I see! It seems most people end up with people from their house, so you are probably a good match for the bad boy. Sirius is a good comparison! But actually I think his James would be James McAvoy. James Potter was quite a mischievous guy but with a good heart, much love for his wife and willing to start a family – so I guess it’s comparable.

        I don’t know Benny enough to sort him, Sherlock would be Ravenclaw though. ;-)

        And me? Oh, I’m a full-blown Slytherin. :-)

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Fassy strikes me as Slytherin all the way. Enjoy him, Ellen.

      • Intro Outro says:

        Hiddles might cut the Ravenclaw, but I’m willing to bet my Firebolt that he could easily cut the Slytherin, too, but he coaxed the Sorting Hat not to put him into Slytherin because it’s bad PR :D

      • A.Key says:

        I don’t think Fassy would be Gryffindor, I agree with Lilacflowers.

      • Ellen says:

        I don’t why I put Mr Macavoy in slytherin. Maybe he suits the color.
        Fassy is Griffinfor sometimes I think it’s just an act with the bad boy image. I think he’ll do a Harry and tell the sorting hat what house he wants to be in.
        Benny as Ravenclaw? I don’t know, he comes across a bit Hermoineish sometimes.

      • Isadora says:

        Ok, because this is a serious matter, I’m gonna explain why Fassy is Gryffindor: ;-)
        Ellen’s comparison with Sirius was spot on, I think. Fassy is a bad boy and hellraiser, but in the end, he is always quite frank and straight forward in his interviews. I doubt that he is ever scheming or manipulative. And I bet that he is a very good friend (if no sex is involved) and close to his family. In the end I guess he is still a Gryffindor – just one of the marauders.

        @Intro: Hiddles a Slytherin? Now that’s interesting… why?
        I mean Loki, he’s 100% Slytherin, even the colours fit. Because if you imagine that for example Draco finds out that he’s muggle born and his parents adopted him but have another son, who is not adopted and possibly favoured by Lucius – he would totally go Loki. (Please ignore the fact that the Malfoys would never adopt a muggle born.)
        I think Hiddles is a typical overachiever – I mean, double first while acting on the side, always pointing out what he knows and can do in interviews (languages, dancing, etc.), I bet he’s worse than Hermione. Totally Ravenclaw in my book, although Hermione is Gryffindor too…

  43. Virgilia says:

    I’m American, but my late mother-in-law was English. She always criticized my table manners (or glaring lack thereof, in her opinion) because I sometimes put my elbows on the table. Is that still considered a terrible faux pas among the British?

    What Nighty said!

    I somehow started to eat “wrong” (fork right, knife left) and my parents pointed it out in every damn restaurant.

    That isn’t really considered bad manners, just left handed. But as I said, I’m a lefty but use my knife and fork right handed.

    • Isadora says:

      Yes, but I’m actually right-handed, I guess I just found having the fork in my right hand so much more comfortable. It doesn’t even make sense to me why right-handed people should have their fork in the weaker hand because you do much more with the fork than with your knife, which you use just for cutting – except if you murder your fellow dinner guests with the steak knife or something. Then it makes sense to have it in the stronger hand.

  45. Ellen says:

    May I present Mr Hiddles friend Sean Bean in the boot death compilation

    He always dies! ;-)

  46. Dara says:

    OK, to recap for our viewers just tuning in (and since we’re closing in on 500 comments, there really should be a recap…

    The following topics have been covered thus far:
    - Wardrobe preferences for the upcoming fashion show thing-ee
    - Testicle humor
    - Cancer humor
    - Discussion of the appropriateness of above-mentioned humors (reading through this part made my heart ache that cancer has touched so many)
    - The over/under odds on if Tom had truly gone commando under the Garment of Humility
    - Enough ensuing innuendo and double entendres to make the Bard proud
    - How to examine and dissect a Twitter account and the meaning behind who follows or unfollows whom and when
    - A vaguely headache-inducing discussion of whoever this Jane-person is and what exactly her Facebook Relationship Status might be
    - We then veered into NC-17 territory with a blush-inducing exchange of proper technique when, er…um…’taking matters into one’s own hands’ Dominant hand indeed!
    - This brought us inexplicably to covering the finer points of proper dining etiquette from a multi-cultural perspective (insert raunchy joke here about fondling the family silver)
    - Have I missed anything?

    What wild and wacky world have I wandered into? Don’t get me wrong, I’m thoroughly enjoying it… and even laugh-snorted a couple of times reading through all this. From me, that is high praise indeed for matters such as these. I’ve visited and occasionally posted here before, but this seems on an entirely different level. Is it like this all the time, or are we celebrating something?

    People, could we please not use the expression”peasant”.. It’s too Goopish and disrespectful to all of us in this or any thread… We all, including the person who insists on it… deserve so much more respect than the “inflected” by it…

    Over five hundred comments ladies, I’ m proud of us even if some of the discussion was off Piste into the role of black humour and cancer, and the holding of cutlery. That’s the beauty of this site – apart from Tom of course. Btw, Is there a Reason for the low profile of j. eyre, her surreal thornfield posts are v entertaining.

    Just to stir things a little – Miss Arthy hasn’t been on twitter since 14 May. When did Tom go on his hols?

  50. Leigh says:

    If TH and JA wanted to keep things on the low down she would not be favoriting comments about him on twitter etc. Something about it just doesn’t make sense to me however having said that, if she ends up on his arm at his next premiere I’ll probably just chuckle and remind myself that there is no smoke without fire.

    omg the number of comments! This is what happens when I take a day off.

    So any news if any other avengers are on the gala?? I wouldn’t mind Chris Evans doing some modelling… preferably in underwear…

    Hiddles I prefer in a slim suit. Think he may be a bit skinny for underwear, though his bum is cute.
