Tom Hiddleston gets drunk and recites Shakespeare at parties, apparently

hiddles1

Here is a new photo of Tom Hiddleston via the Vote Malcolm 2014 Twitter account. From what I gather, Malcolm Sinclair is running for president of Equity, which is the actors’ union in the UK. America has SAG, Britain has Equity. And apparently there are elections and many actors want a new Equity president. Malcolm Sinclair seems to have widespread support amongst the theater-actor community. Anyway, this photo was posted on the Twitter account with the message: “Tom Hiddleston says #VoteMalcolm in the @EquityUK elections next week. #YouMakeTheDifference.” Tom looks great in this photo, doesn’t he? The tan is working for me. The only thing that would make it better is if he had some scruffy facial hair.

A couple of Tommy stories… his name was included in an article at The Daily Beast about “thespians who love to drink and quote Shakespeare.” Or, “Drunk Shakespeare” if you will. Here’s the relevant part:

Many legendary Shakespearean thespians have been indebted to drink. Think of those great British knights from yesteryear Peter O’Toole and Richard Burton or Kevin Spacey recently talking about being drunk while playing Richard III. Tom Hiddleston’s party piece is apparently to recite Shakespeare while he’s on ‘noticeably good form’.

[From The Daily Beast]

Well… I think it would be weird if Tom did NOT do this. I mean, even non-actors have drunkenly recited some Shakespearean soliloquy. It would only be noteworthy if Tom drunkenly recited sonnets as he was trying to pick up ladies. Which I’m sure he does too.

Meanwhile, there are some very silly rumors about Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston being “rumored” for the newly greenlighted adaptation of the World War I play Journey’s End. Eh. They already did War Horse, you know? This sounds more like “dream-casting” rather than legit casting rumors.

    How shocking, said no one.
    He looks really good in that picture.

  2. Dani says:

    Usually not a hiddles fan but DAMN that is one fab picture. I think I just hopped on the bandwagon.

  3. PunkyMomma says:

    Self-tanner on Hiddles’ face?

    • Arock says:

      Bronzer maybe? It’s the first thing I noticed, too. Is it for part or just a gross oversight?

      • Ellen says:

        He sunburns his neck and bronzes his face? That’s not a holiday!

      • Nighty says:

        ‘p’enny I love him , adore him, but let’s be honest, that tan doesn’t look good, looks weird for God’s sake…

      • Kate2 says:

        Gotta agree w/Nighty. I think he’s completely awesome but come on, he looks strange in that pic. His face tan looks different than the rest of him. That’s not normal. It looks like bronzer. It could be natural or it could be artificial, who knows. But it looks weird. His eyes and hair look great, tan/face, not so much.

        I’ve f’ed up my face in the sun before and had weird tan lines on my body (if its from the sun). It happens. Or maybe the lighting where he put on the bronzer was bad (if it was bronzer). Or maybe he didn’t have good lighting to see the pic before he sent it out or maybe he saw what it looked like and just didn’t give a shit.

        Its ok, I love that he’s showing how imperfect he is. On purpose or accidentally. He may also have smelly feet or excessive sweating or terrible gas. If you watch his interviews he seems to stifle a lot of burps. Its great, it brings him down to Earth a bit. And lets face it, he didn’t seem to know about the appearance the Hiddleconda made at Cannes last year so its entirely possible he just didn’t notice this.

        I think the bigger question is, WHO TOOK THE PICTURE??????

        (mwahahahahah) <—- evil laugh (Still going with sister because I like that answer best.)

      • Isadora says:

        I begin to suspect that the weird tan lines are really the way he tans and not bronzer – because he has these tan lines so often, he simply can’t be THAT blind. Or can he? Someone pointed on the Cumby thread pointed out that the weird tan could be a result of a previous severe sun damage, so the only helpful thing would be to stay completely pale? I have no idea as I have no experience with sun damage. Or tans.

        @Kate2: I think imperfections can be quite charming and Hiddles’ – as much as I like him – is a handsome guy, but hardly supermodel material. Doesn’t matter, he’s still great. BUT smelly feet, excessive sweating or terrible gas… oh my… this could really kill an attraction!

        And I took the picture of course! That’s why I know that Hiddles currently smells like frangipani and not smelly feet. ;-)

      • Intro Outro says:

        I have to say I love how he’s posting this kind of ungroomed photos. Never mind bad lighting, uneven sunburn, dark circles under the eyes – if he has to take and post a photo, he just does it and moves on. I find it quite manl;y and endearing ;)

        @Kate2:

        LOLing at the burps :D But are you sure? I have watched several long interviews and I don’t think I’ve ever caught anything like that!

      • Kate2 says:

        @Intro -

        I swear to God, I’ve seen it on multiple occasions. Enough so that I’ve actually made a mental note of it.

        @Isadora -

        It very well could just be the way he tans. I’ve seen that line at his hairline on other occasions and thought it was makeup but it could very well be his natural tanline. Its still weird looking. But hey, I have weird looking stuff going on with me too.

        To your other point, no, he’s not supermodel material by any stretch. There are many who don’t find him attractive at all, which is totally fine too. But I agree those things I listed would put a damper on any level of attraction, lol. Just saying the man has flaws that aren’t readily apparent on film, and more than one, everyone does. We just don’t know what they are, so seeing one of those flaws show up on camera as this tanline has is frankly, refreshing. There are others we don’t know about, hence my examples…

      • Sarah says:

        @Kate2 @Intro Outro LOL! It’s great you’re allowed to say something about his imperfections. Every time I post about Tom NOT being perfect (without being offensive) I get either lectured or deleted. Haha! :D

      • Intro Outro says:

        @Kate2:

        I just want to tell you that I love your comments ^_^ Always down-to-earth and to the point. And lol ok, I’ll try to pay attention, hehehe :D

        @Sarah:

        Ouch. But where are you being censored like that? It’s lame when fans get sanctimonious. There are things that rub me the wrong way, too, but it’s mostly when people get their facts wrong or are obviously prejudiced.

      • Isadora says:

        @Kate2 & Intro: Ha, I noticed the burps too. But I’ve probably seen every interview on youtube lol. I guess when you do press junkets all day long you eat in between and it’s kind of unavoidable if you talk a lot after eating?

    • PunkyMomma says:

      Matters not. Hiddles – put on your hundred year old velvet robe, I’ll close my eyes, ignore the bronzer and you can bite my neck. I love frangipani. 🌺

  4. Abbott says:

    Because of course he does. Next up: Cumberbatch makes silk flowers for cumberladies (or whatever they call themselves).

  5. lunchcoma says:

    I think I’d be surprised if he didn’t. He already chatters about Shakespeare constantly, and most people’s unconscious habits and fixations get more noticeable after a few drinks. (I bet he’s also that friend who’s easily goaded into doing foolish looking things.)

    • LadyMTL says:

      ITA. I’m a book-nerd and if I have a few in me (or am really really tired) I can go off on tangents about my favorite books, authors, and etc. So I really wouldn’t be surprised if Hiddles drunk-quotes Shakespeare; I think it’s kinda cute.

    • icerose says:

      There are far worse things people can go on about when drunk-it could however could start a 1000 fan fictions

      Something strange is going on-my typing refused to show up but did when I hit submit??

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        Given he quotes Shakespeare stone-cold sober, why is quoting Shakespeare when drunk surprising or newsworthy?? I would certainly expect it.

        I prefer Tom pale and natural, but I don’t begrudge he is on holiday and picked up a tan. He probably got a massive sunburn on his face just waiting for the car to pick him up from the airport and take him to the resort! I think it is just jarring because his neck is still pale and obviously if his chest is pink it hasn’t been burned to a tan yet either. Boy holidays in a turtleneck jumper???

  6. itsetsyou says:

    He looks good with that tan and lose blue shirt. He’d look very good living in Los Angeles ;)

  7. InvaderTak says:

    I get drunk and quote Tim Burton movie lines at people. I always drunkenly introduced my brother as that pumpkin king (his name is Jack). is there a society for this?

  8. MissMary says:

    Because of course he does, lol.

    Re the casting rumors: I’d buy it, honestly. Mainly because BC seems to be hell bent on doing war movies and is very passionate about WWI and WWII, at least the writings that came out of the wars, and Tom…well, he’s still building his career. If he gets a solid offer for a solid role, I can see him taking it.

    • Green Girl says:

      Yes to this, especially if Cumby is encouraging him to do the movie. But will this ever get off the ground?

      • Abby_J says:

        I imagine that conversation going something like this:

        Cumby: Hey Tom! You should really take this movie. It will be like old times.

        Hiddles: Well, I have to check on Thor 3, and then there is this running movie. You know I love to run.

        Cumby: Yes, yes. However, I think you should do it for the wonderful ladies (and quite possibly a few gentlemen) at Celebitchy. Just take a moment to imagine all the pictures of us filming and going out together in our downtime. Between the Tumblr explosion and the gossip, we will keep those people in stories for years! Do it for them!

        Hiddles: Sounds good. Will there be Shakespeare? I could help you rehearse your lines for Richard III, you know.

        Cumby: Excellent. I can help you rehearse for Thor. I’ve always wanted to pretend to be a giant Norse god built like….What did you call it? A brick S&*t house.

        Hiddles: Okay, lets make this happen.

        Cumby: Just one thing. When we do our interviews and tours for the movie, remember that I’d like to talk some as well. I have this ginormous intellect to show off, you know.

        Or something like that.

      • Green Girl says:

        Love it! And then, they drank whiskey into the wee hours while looking at their favorite fan sites on Tumblr.

        But can you picture these two doing press together in a big way in a film like this? I don’t think the Internet can handle it.

      • Abby_J says:

        Yes! Once they were drunk, there was a Shakespeare quote off.

        The internet would explode while this was happening. I think it would glorious. :)

      • 'p'enny says:

        @Abbey_j

        very funny, LOL. “For Celebitchy!” shouts Fandral/Cumby. I can imagine Cumby reading Hemsworth’s lines… “It’s not too late, we can stop this together..” and “Surrender is not in mine..” and Tom going, “Satisfcation is not in mine and Give us a Kiss”

        Crikey, that sounds such a turn on, visualising Benny and Tommy saying those lines with long hair.

      • icerose says:

        Abby_J love it,
        Could we not have a film about two drunk English actors playing out their obsessions, desires and guilty secrets whilst on the set filming yet another period war film for the enth time. Works for me.

      • Isadora says:

        They NEED to be in a (funny) movie about drunk Englishmen together. I don’t care which period, which occupation, which obsession. Dark comedy about drunk Englishmen. Please!

    • Intro Outro says:

      I am no fan of war films so no, I hope that either they will make a modern psychological/black humour/magical realism etc etc film together that WILL NOT BE A BIOPIC, or that they will continue with their respective separate careers and each of them will get a fleshy and interesting leading role in a film that WILL NOT BE A BIOPIC! :D

      Ok Tommy, you can have that Kyriakides biopic if you *really* want to – but only because you haven’t really done biopics before :P

    • M.A.F. says:

      They both were in War Horse. This would just be like except Hiddleston gets to live a little longer and there may not be Horses. I want something different.

    • icerose says:

      They have not been approached yet but with Prince Charlie putting his weight behind it it seems like it will go ahead. All the big UK papers are picking it up but the director says although he sees them in the roles they have not been approached yet.

      http://www.bbcamerica.com/anglophenia/2014/06/tom-hiddleston-benedict-cumberbatch-back-trenches-journeys-end/

      Feels like type casting for both of them. Benny as the morose older officer turning to drink and Tom as the younger more ethical heroic lieutenant. My guess is both might say yes anyway as Tom is very into theatre and commemorative type films–he has that I love Britain streak. He has also appeared in the stage version at the Edinburgh festival to good reviews. Benny seems to get offered more lead roles in the UK so my guess is he would also say yes even if it has shades of Parade’s End. But you never know Tom does not like to repeat himself and is known to be quite picky and maybe Ben will feel it’s too repetitive as well.
      On the plus front both are bigger parts than in War Horse.

  9. tila says:

    This guy is so lame. I really don’t get the attraction. Each to their own I guess.

  10. Annemarie says:

    I would love to get drunk with Tom <3

  11. T.Fanty says:

    Tahiti Tom is working for me. He looks EXACTLY how I imagine he would immediately after rolling out of my bed.

    I’m not even touching the Shakespeare thing, because I do it when drunk and sober. If he really wanted to impress me, he should get drunk and whip out his Beaumont and Fletcher.

  12. Patty Cake says:

    I’d get drunk with you Hiddles and quote Shakespeareto the ducks. With a couple of Jamesons in our hands, we could board a plane to Tahiti and live out the rest of our days with joy in our hearts and self tanner in our hands, lol.

  13. Patty Cake says:

    Tom probably needs to lay off the self tanner a bit. Poor Tom looks a little sun burned in the face, but with smiles. Smooches Tommy!

    • Make mine a double says:

      It may not be self-tan. I get the same strange line around my hairline, whether I’m using a hat, suntan lotion or whatever. Very strange. It looks like I’ve slathered myself rather badly in Fake Bake but it’s entirely natural.

      • Nighty says:

        That’s so strange… I had never seen that before… No pigmentation on the scalp?
        Do you pull your hair really well backwards and apply suntan lotion even in the hair (on the skin catching that first line/string of hair?

      • Make mine a double says:

        Yup, suntan lotion into the hairline and hair pulled right back. And I have pigment there as I get a gazillion freckles. It’s got better as I’ve got older, strangely enough. Also since I’ve had a lot more exposure to the sun on a regular basis. I can only put it down to the weird Celtic skin colouring Tom and I share.

      • Malificent says:

        I have bangs (Kaiser can start the bang-hate now!) on my freakishly high forehead, so I always end up with less tan on my forehead if my hair isn’t wet and pulled back. On the other hand — it could be self-tanner. With his coloring, I’m guessing that Hiddles probably just gets his freckles connected rather than an actual tan.

        And as for drunkenly quoting The Bard — don’t all drunken Shakespearean actors (and drunken Midwestern English Lit majors ;-) do that?

      • Nighty says:

        I started doing the following a few years ago and it really works wonders… and I get a fantastic goldish dark, (as far as possible, since I’m pale) even tan; a month or 2 before going to the beach, I start taking daily pills with beta carotene and vitamin A…
        The skin looks awesome. and it helps prevents sunburnt (though I don’t have the tendency for it). Vitamin A protects the skin and beta-carotene starts pigmenting it before sun exposure…
        You can buy those at any pharmacy

      • Make mine a double says:

        I do actually go quite dark, for such a freckly thing, and I tend not to burn unless I’m very stupid (like falling alseep in the sun) but I’ll have to try that vit A / beta carotene thing as anything that helps and keeps the skin looking good is a blessing. Cheers for that Nighty.

        As for the Bard, whenever my friends come over and we get a tad tipsy it’s Coriolanus or Hamlet or something that they have to watch. I almost feel sorry for them…

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @make mine a double, my skin does similar things and sunblock does little to stop it.

      • pru says:

        My coloring is similar to his: blond as a kid, now dark blond, and fair. I never get brown in the sun, always get pink/red and it takes a while to fade into a non red color (usually the next day). When I was a teenager, I feel asleep on my stomach at the beach and my back got horribly burned (Lesson learned!). I wasn’t under an umbrella or anything, in direct sunlight and my back was splotchy. Very red in some areas, barely pink in others. It’s just the way my skin gets color in the sun.
        So, I believe Tom’s lines could be natural. I’ve noticed this in pictures of him before. But who knows for sure?? It could be make up, tanner application too, although the actual color of his skin doesn’t look fake to me.

      • jammypants says:

        I think his curls just shield his hairline from the sun hence the color difference.

        I somehow managed to find time at work to google this, oh my!

        http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m4za3tLTjF1qc3e8j.jpg

      • Nighty says:

        Yep, he always has that hairline… :)

    • icerose says:

      I have no idea if it is sunblock or a tan with a touch of sunburn but I do know how frustrating it is to go to sun drenched islands covered in factor 50 sunblock knowing you will remain whiter than white whilst all around you are turning deeper shades of brown. Some of us with delicate skin syndrome do resort to a little tanner now just so we can feel at home.
      But if it is tanner good on him for not risking a little more than sun damage. There are so many young people and even older people who refuse to wear sunblock or tanner because its not cool and the risk of skin cancer seems a long way off.

  14. GiGi says:

    I’d like him to get drunk and quote the Bard directly to my biscuit.

  15. dancinnancy says:

    I’m drinking the Tom Hiddleston koolaide and would absolutely reward drunken sonnets!

    Shakespearean actors come off a bit pretentious – but I adore them. Patrick Stewart seems to hit the right balance. I’d rather hear their rambling then actors who begin every interview with “when I was at Julliard/Harvard/Yale/RADA/etc…”

  16. pixie-stix says:

    Life of the party, no doubt… I picture him making the occasional clapboard gesture between swigs of beer, Shakespeare and imitations-by-request.

  17. ViktoryGin says:

    It’s absolutely self-aggrandizing and pretentious, as many an actor is.

    And I would totally get off on this English lit nerd shtick.

  18. Nighty says:

    Continue not liking the tan, but I love him still… Looks like he applied foundation in a bad way… Whatever..
    Oh, when drunk he can quote Shakespeare anytime to me…. lol… I’d laugh a lot…. Actually I’m imagining the scenario:
    Tom, with a glass of Jameson’s on one hand and a skull on the other: “To be or not to be! That is the question!!”

  19. Reece says:

    New thing I must do in life: Seeing this in person. HA!

    Useless fact: AFTRA was called Equity for short before they joined together.

  20. Leah says:

    I’m not sure what to do now that we have two Tom posts within a week of each other. This is an embarrassment of riches! I tan this same way too, ugh. Must be a celtic thing. He does look like he got a lot of sleep and got laid multiple times. Good for him! My god, he has huge hands.

  21. Patty Cake says:

    I wouldn’t mind if he got drunk, came over to my chateau and quoted Stories Before Bedtime by Tennessee Williams to me by the moonlight. http://youtu.be/1ihRXQgwtKY

  22. Abby_J says:

    I love the idea of Drunken Hiddles quoting Shakespeare to anyone who will listen. It makes me happy.

    Even better………He and Cumby could get drunk together and do a dramatic reading of William Shakespeare’s Star Wars, by Ian Doescher. I imagine they both own it. We would need video, of course.

    That is an excellent book for parties. Not that I am suggesting that there has ever been so much alcohol at a gathering of my friends, that we’ve done dramatic readings from the book with makeshift costumes. No, never.

  23. flavia_deluce says:

    Love: the shirt, the tan, the HAIR. He looks rested and refreshed.

  24. Vesta says:

    I’d like to open Tommy’s shirt and check if he has tan lines caused by a lei garland.

  25. don't kill me i'm french says:

    Strange tan!

  26. JoAnn says:

    The hair seems very emotive also reminds me of “Something About Mary”. His blue eyes are striking. I bet he is a blast at parties.

  27. Samtha says:

    Those tan lines around his hair and neck…nope. He looks much better pale.

  28. Sarah says:

    Are you serious about the tan working for him? He has tanlines around his eyes and hair. He has clearly been hitting the fake tan bottle again. No thanks

  29. A.Key says:

    CUUUUTEEEEE <3

    Tho I'm afraid I'd roll my eyes hard if he started splurting Shakespeare at the bar.
    To quote Hamlet, act III, scene iii, line 87, “no”.

  30. Ellen says:

    Do you think he got drunk on the beach and fell asleep to get that weird tan? That what usually happens.

    I love the hair but from the looks of it it’s just been washed a towel dried. The giveaway is that it’s dark in some places. Also being a man he’s run his hair through it instead of using a comb.

    Big question is why didn’t he tweet this picture himself? He’s never goes on twitter which cannot be said for his number 1 fangirl.

    • Sarah says:

      I’ve asked myself the same question, Ellen. He didn’t RT Malcolm’s tweet either as he usually does when he supports a cause.

      • icerose says:

        maybe he is having a fan free holiday or better still maybe he has been too bust enjoying the ladies to the lifestyle to do anything but a minimal internet access. Works for me on holiday.

      • Sarah says:

        Yes, maybe. But if he didn’t want anyone to see him and his orange tan, if he really wanted to stay away from his fanbase and the public eye, why did he agree to take (and send) a picture during his ‘Tahiti’ holidays that he knew would be tweeted for the world to see since it’s a campaign. He could have taken the pic during the Crimson Peak or in L.A. before he left.

      • icerose says:

        loyalty to the actor. He worked with him on Hollow Crown and there is a bit of a battle going on at the moment as there is strong competition from a female candidate who hopes to be the first female president

      • jammypants says:

        Maybe they asked him while he was on holiday but not earlier when he was filming. It’s nice of him to respond and do it. He didn’t have to. Poor guy gets his every move questioned. I don’t think it’s much to look into honestly.

      • 'p'enny says:

        Sarah, i don’t know if you saw the selfie pics of Tom during filming Crimson Peak, he was as pale as the make-up he was wearing in the film. He wasn’t in LA long enough to get that tan. In fact those last selfies in LA he looked so washed out and tired, he could keel over.

        He doesn’t look orange and he doesn’t look like he is wearing fake tan. If he did, he would be the same colour all over, and he is patchy and sun-kissed. It’s normal.

        The reasons he didn’t tweet this himself is because it’s not really aimed at his fanbase, it a insider campaign for Equity and it is posted on the campaign twitter site, set up by the actor for what he is specifically campaigning for. And it is next to all the other actors pics who have done the same thing and who are also asking other ‘actors’ to vote. It’s just not aimed at us!

    • Intro Outro says:

      I honestly don’t understand how a person can fall asleep on the beach under the sun – considering how everyone knows how dangerous it is, and also considering just how impossibly HOT it gets o_O I mean – how *can* anyone fall asleep like that? It’s horribly uncomfortable. And reckless.

      Or maybe it’s just me being super-aware of the dangers of sunburn and being incapable to even go to the beach without shades and a big hat and still staying under an umbrella all the time when I’m not bathing in the sea lol.

      • icerose says:

        I did it once sunbathing in the garden and it was not pretty. My friend also did it under a home tanner.

      • Nighty says:

        @Intro, you don’t know me… I always take a nap at the beach… I handle the heat pretty well, but then, I only go to the beach from 8.00 to 10.30 am and after 4 / 4.30 pm…

      • icerose says:

        I was actually quite sick that night as well as very badly burnt and as a someone who always burns it was far worse than usual.My cure for my many sunburns as a teen was to get in a hot bath. It hurt like hell but it blistering and pealing.
        Having said that I have had multiple melanomas in my adult life and it all stems from my teen and early twenty days. Tom and share a very similar skin tone and hair colour.

      • Nighty says:

        Ouch @Icerose… well, when I refer to naps is 15 to 30 min… no more than that… never did…
        only had a bad sunburnt s a kid… spent the day in the water, so sunblock was ineffective…
        I’m very careful about it, especially because I have rosacea… and sunlight is not exactly the best thing for it… I’m laughing at his tan, but I’m always whiter in the face than the rest of the body because of rosacea…. face always in the shade…

      • Isadora says:

        I can’t fall asleep on a beach either – but not because of the sun but because the noise of the waves is too loud lol. I hate sleeping by the sea, can’t do it. Yeah, I’m weird.

        But it’s perfect to fall asleep in the sun on a rooftop terrace – it’s silent, nobody can see you, it’s warm and there is always a slight breeze, so it doesn’t get too hot. Just watch the birds and *bam* asleep. Strangely I never burn there although I don’t even use sunblocker (everyone needs a bit of vitamin D, listen to “Dr. Watson”). I just avoid midday sun and prefer afternoon sun and I guess the smog in the big city filters UV rays quite a bit.

        I just realised that there is something quite “High-Rise”ish about that picture, isn’t it? *lol* (still haven’t read the book, though)

        @icerose: ouch… my grandmother was as pale as me but wanted desperately to be tanned. It resulted in a lot of sunburns (as an adult) and eventually melanoma too. :-/

      He’s styled his hair like that, it’s too straight, when he just leaves it it goes really noodly-curly and at a good three inches of height that would be some power curls.

  31. feebee says:

    While I don’t doubt he’s a blast at parties, at one of mine if he started reciting Shakespeare he’d be in the pool (if only we had one) pretty darn quick.

  32. Portia says:

    I love the new pic! His eyes look so gorgeous against the tan! Though I’m not sure why his neck and chest didn’t tan…his fingers look tanned too.
    The Hiddles Tan effect must be explored! Not to worry, ladies. I’ll take one for the team and Hiddles and I will hit different beaches across the world where he shall tan in various types of undress and I will study the effects of the sun on his pretty pale skin. Correction – on EVERY inch of his pretty pale skin.

    Ugh. I’m such a perv. I hope when he gets drunk and recites Shakespeare, it’s all the dirty flirty lines because Hiddles passing out in the middle of that would be too freakin’ adorable!
    Yeah, he’s lovely and so kissable.

  33. mkyarwood says:

    Sure beats the heck out of most other drunk behaviours.

  34. G. says:

    I’m with the “Of course he does” part… I start to quote poems/books/movies/whatever when I’m drunk too, and I’m really NOT an actor :-D
    The picture: I’m happy that he’s having a good time in vacation, he looks really relaxed, but I’m a little worried about his complexion… his skin doesn’t seem “relaxed” as him, at the very least. Moisturize, please!!!!

  35. Ava says:

    I just had the best laugh at over 100 comments of people analyzing a man’s tan…….. He looks adorable as usual. Can’ t wait to see Crimson Peak.

  36. Ellen says:

    I think he’s a rambler when he’s drunk. He’ll just talk nonsense about everything.
    From interviews and observations it sounds like he’s one to hold his drink so it must be a rare thing for him to be drunk. Plus he’s an actor

    Is that a scar on his arm holding the lower part?

    Also this might be taken whilst he was in LA

  37. pru says:

    He recites Shakespeare sober. He recites Shakespeare drunk. He recites Shakespeare to an audience of birds. I can only assume that he recites it in the shower, in his sleep, and at every *cough* happy moment *cough*.
    Bless him!
    And fake or natural, I think pinkened Tahiti Tom looks goood!

  38. Sofia says:

    I think it’s odd that his neck is so pale in comparison to his face. My neck and face area are about the same color, but they are darker than the rest of my body. I don’t use any tanning lotion or anything… It’s just how my skin naturally is

  39. Adrien says:

    His photo above reminds me of a sunburned William H. Macy. I like Tom for his normcoreness and low maintenance appeal but it wouldn’t hurt to apply sunscreen. He should embrace his pasty chic.

  40. Lilacflowers says:

    On the topic of Shakespeare (without Tom, sorry), anyone in New England, the production of The Tempest at A.R.T. is fantastic.

    • Kate2 says:

      @lilacflowers -

      Thanks, I want to start brushing up on my Shakespeare. I think it’s been since high school since I read anything. I’ve still got the Hollow Crown in queue, ugh.

      I’m so ashamed at my lack of Shakespeare savvy. My mom is a freak for it. I love it when I see or read it but I just don’t read enough. I started a book about Bunker Hill by Nathaniel Philbrick a year ago and I still haven’t finished it. I’m the worst.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        I think I started that same book and have no recollection of finishing it. But the Tempest is a lot of fun. The music is by Tom Waits, the musicians are excellent, the magic bits are by Teller of Penn & Teller and the acting is wonderful.

      • Dara says:

        @Kate2- don’t worry too much about not reading Shakespeare, IMO you have to see his work performed to really enjoy it. I spent a full year in college studying nothing but Shakespeare, other playwrights from the period, and Elizabethan history (yeah, all of that has been REALLY useful in my career…not) and no matter how long we spent discussing and dissecting the text in class I never really “got” a play until I saw it performed.

        Enjoy the Hollow Crown – that version of Henry IV pt.1 was easily one of the best I’ve seen. That’s when I seriously caught the Hiddles-bug. He really does have a gift for interpreting the arcane language, I almost forgot it wasn’t modern English.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Dara, and an amazing gift for mimicking Jeremy Irons!

      • Kate2 says:

        @lilac
        It’s actually a terrific book. I’m a big fan of Philbrick’s work. In the Heart of the Sea was AMAZING (Hemsworth is in the movie version, they better not screw it up). I just keep forgetting to continue this one. I have The Mayflower in my Kindle queue.

        That production sounds amazing. Do you have a link to the website?

        @dara

        Thanks, you’re probably right about the magic of Shakespeare coming alive on the stage as opposed to the page. What a wonderful year that must have been, regardless of its future usefulness…

    • Dara says:

      Lilac, I am officially beside myself with envy. What I wouldn’t give to see that production of the Tempest. Sadly, it’s not to be- is it really as amazing as it looks? Wait, don’t tell me, I might be better off not knowing.

    • Miss Jupitero says:

      I’m about to see that show myself Lilac! I love the SRT. Did you catch Dleep No More a few years ago when it was here?

    • Evie says:

      @Lilacflowers: I wholeheartedly concur with you, The Tempest was very enjoyable. Next up, I have fourth row center seats to see Kenneth Branagh in Macbeth at the Park Ave Armory later this month. This is the first time ever that Branagh is appearing onstage in New York; he’s there for a three-week run from May 31 until June 22nd. Funny thing the Park Ave. Armory’s PR Dept. must have been asleep because when the tickets went on sale in early December they didn’t do much to promote it and it was not completely sold out. About a month ago, they woke up and started hyping it and then raised the ticket prices for the few remaining front row seats by 35% to $350. I have never known a theatre to do that.

      Staging for Macbeth is supposed to be marvelous. Who knows, maybe Tom will stop over in NYC and see the show on his way back from Tahiti.

    • Kate2 says:

      @lilac -

      I just checked the box office, its fully sold out!

  41. Virgilia says:

    I think Tom looks gorgeous. Could be he went running wearing hat and shades, as we’ve seen in some of his photos, and got the sun exposure that way. I’d like to know how far down that tan goes…

    And drunken Shakespeare ramblings are certainly cute, but I’d much rather hear drunken Loki ramblings. That would be such fun. Drunken Loki yelling, “Kneel!” could only lead in one direction! Or we could have him act out Loki’s magic hands…

    And I don’t for a minute think he has abandoned technology. That smart phone is never far from those long, elegant fingers. And the dear boy seems to have ADHD, so I would imagine he needs stimulation on a regular basis. Mental stimulation, that is.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      He may not have abandoned technology but his ability to use it may depend on how well Tahiti is wired. If it’s anything like some parts of the Adirondacks, he may be out of luck. While visiting my boyfriend’s parents’ cabin a year ago, there was a running joke about how the only place a cell phone would work was on an unsheltered section of the porch. People would be standing out there in the rain. While riding in the car, my calls would drop as we took turns in the road (I was passenger.) When my phone rang in the bedroom, I suddenly had an audience of 5 people because nobody had ever gotten a cell phone to work in the house.

    • Ellen says:

      I’ve always wondered he has ADHD. He has shown the classic signs of it such as always on the go, not paying attention for a long period of time, fiddling whilst someone else is talking. It might be mild but it does sound like he’s got it.

      • 'P'enny says:

        @ellen

        tom hasn’t got ADHD, anyone who has it, seriously, couldn’t concentrate long enough to learn Shakespeare and get through a play three hours a night, six days a week.

        He probably has a brain that is probably three -steps ahead of most. A lot of people who’ve worked with him say how sharp and focused he is. Samuel Jackson and Anthony Hopkins, came out with a great quotes about how switched on and focused he is and how impressed they were. In fact, a lot of the avenger’s actors who didn’t know him, were impressed with his focus. [and his bats@it humour]

        And bless Jim Beaver, saying how Hiddles after 16 hours or so still fresh and going strong.

        The only time I think saw him, nervy, unsettled and uncomfortable is the Top Gear interview. He was well out of is comfort zone.

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        Hyper focus actually is a part of ADHD. Just saying. People with ADHD thrive on change though– acting is a perfect profession for them. If he had a desk job, he would probably channel his hyper focus differently and be a workaholic.

      • Intro Outro says:

        I’m ready to bet that he’s predominantly hyperactive type, but not so sure about any severe attention deficit, he might be well-compensated. As a mother of a hyperactive-type ADHD child, I’ve noticed some similarities btw my son and Hiddles :P The constant need to MOVE (and going crazy if movements are restricted), tendency to show off, impulsiveness, anxiety, need to touch everything, MEGAWATTS of energy when everyone else is already exhausted, inability to gain weight due to this excessive energy, quickly changing facial expressions, excellent memory and exceptionally sharp understanding of things that are interesting to this particular individual. It’s all there. And yes, acting is one of the best professions for hyperactive people.

      • trama queen says:

        Hi everyone! Long time lurker, first time poster. I agree with @intro &@Ellen, he definitely has ADHD. I have thought that for a long time. It’s not a bad thing, people. Their brains are just wired differently, they process things differently and usually have no filter, sound familiar? Both my hubby and my son have it, I see alot of the same behaviors in Tom. They can be very focused when doing something they find engaging and interesting, become annoying and unfocused when bored, so they do and say sillythings(to us NonADHD peeps) to entertain themselves, always on the move, but they are usually the smartest and friendliest person in the room.
        But, to the NonADHD person,(me) one might find these behaviors annoying and or exhausting, at times. They can be quite tiresome if you can’t or don’t want to keep up

      • Intro Outro says:

        @trama queen, welcome! And yeah, I agree with your every word. At times, it really is difficult to handle ADHD people – even the closet and the dearest.

      • Thnuggaboo says:

        I have a son with Aspergers and ADHD…..and yeah, I could see that in Tom—parts of it anyhow. My son can tell you anything you want to know about computers but gets in trouble for dropping the f-bomb because he has no filter for that. I’ve read that Tom reeeeeeally likes caffeine. Before we found the right meds to calm my son down, coffee and/or Mountain Dew were the only things that semi-worked. Once my son was prescribed codeine for a pain issue and it made him destructively hyperactive…..no codeine ever now. Thank you to the poster that said their brains are just wired differently as that is definitely true.

    • pru says:

      My guess is he’s a workaholic and the phone is always on, Tahiti Tom may limit himself, but never go complete without.

      • 'P'enny says:

        he always got a phone in his hand, looks like from the Crimson peak photos he has two phones on the go. One for secret girlfriends and one for business.

        seriously, the kind of job he’s in, I reckon his agent and Kevin Feige are on speed dial.

    • JulK says:

      Maybe he just recieved an email and replied to it? Several actors sent in pics like him so it may have been the easiest thing to do. I am sure the campaign would include emailing. I can imagine logging into his twitter account and browsing may take some time on his mobile, whist replying to an email is pretty straighforward.

      I think he is the “always checks his email” type. As most driven people are ;-)

    • icerose says:

      well it seems he had some female stimulation which is causing a riot on tumblr

  42. Nighty says:

    Oh… the jungle girl has stopped following the diamond girl… oh…

  43. falstaff says:

    They are together in bora bora, there is a picture on Facebook. It seems he lied all this time

    • Sarah says:

      Photo or it didn’t happen. LOL!

    • Vesta says:

      UH-OH. Is that Tommy with JA in Bora Bora?!? I don’t know what to say……Whoa?

      (Sarah, check Torrilla)

    • M.A.F. says:

      The photo is on several Tumblr pages and that is Arthy.

      @Kate2-it is wishful thinking. There is a photo of Arthy of herself on Twitter. The girl in the facebook photo is not his sister Emma. That is Arthy.

    • jammypants says:

      haha! I guess all the folks calling her a fangirl/stalker can eat their words. Even if she is a fanbaiter, she quite obviously had some alone time with him.

    • belle says:

      That’s definitely JA. Huh. Guess a lot of us were wrong in thinking Hiddles wouldn’t lie about being in a relationship.

      • jammypants says:

        nah I doubt it. I was on and off again with my ex. For a chunk of it, I would consider myself single. Then we ended up meeting again a year later and dated.

      • Ellen says:

        Wonder what else he’s been lying about?

        Looks like Fanbaiter/fangirl Jane has won her prize.

        What’s this rumor they’re married?

      • Nighty says:

        So, they’re probably getting or got married.. if she was “checking rings”
        well tom mison did get married in secret… myabe TH asked him for some advice on how to hide the GF…

      • Sarah says:

        @Ellen the ‘they’re married’ comes from the message the person who posted the pic wrote. She used the phrase “sa femme” and then added “Mr and Mrs Hiddleston”

      • jammypants says:

        Honestly, who can blame him keeping it all a secret? he has some really insane fans. I’m sure the “when I have something to talk about” is most likely, “when I’m in a serious relationship/engaged/married”. I don’t see how that’s lying.

      • Vesta says:

        Jammypants, I agree that we don’t know for sure what their relationship was, or is at the moment, so I really wouldn’t say he was or is lying either. I also interpreted his comment the same way you did.

        It’s his business anyway, although I won’t deny I’m curious.

      • Nighty says:

        Well, I’m truly disappointed, expected him to find someone less fangirl-y

      • Kate2 says:

        This is pretty quick. They’ve known each other a year and he’s been away for a lot of that time. Not that I haven’t seen quicker, mind you…

        And I love Tom Mison but he doesn’t have half the fanbase Hiddleston does. It would be way easier for him to hide a gf/marriage. Could be done though.

      • belle says:

        He did say he was single. I forget which magazine it was, but it was the one where the interviewer took him out in a rowboat and he was quoting Shakespeare to ducks.

      • jammypants says:

        @Vesta. I agree. Everyone made jokes about him relaxing, with the help of some lucky lady. So he’s doing just that, but now he’s lying? I don’t see what’s wrong with Jane Arthy honestly. We’ll never know him (or her for that matter personally). Maybe it’s because I have no feelings towards her and have seen her twitter like twice.

      • Ellen says:

        To be fair he didn’t need to comment on his relationship status at all.

        So what’s next? Still refuse her existence?

        Does anyone actually think it will last given she’s a fangirl?

      • Kate says:

        Ladies and Gentlemen I present either the most outlandish FWB relationship ever, or the most screwed up regular relationship ever. This was not “protecting” this was just plain out screwed up. I’m a relationship of my own so no I’m not jealous etc I just literally shake my head at this. I’m literally going to give this 2 years max…seriously.

      • Vesta says:

        I like your reasoning jammypants. JA is not someone very famous/scandalous/gold digger, so I’ve no feelings towards her either.

      • joe spider says:

        @ Kate 2

        We don’t know how long they have known each other do we?

      • Kate2 says:

        @ellen -

        To be fair we still don’t know what the relationship status is now. Just because the person who took the photo says they’re married doesn’t mean they are. TH said he’d say something when there’s something to write home about. Well, I’d say a marriage or engagement is something to write home about. This was posted on 5/26 on this person’s FB page. So, over a week ago. Lets see if he or she announce anything on Twitter now that the shit has hit the fan. I’m actually shocked it took this long.

        (I’m still not 100% convinced its not his sister but that’s just me, and I’m willing to admit I could also be 100% wrong.)

      • Nighty says:

        @Jammy I just think she’s too fangirly, a grown woman, who on twitter, favorites this comment : “The brain naturally craves 4 things: Food, Sex, Water and Sleep.” And Tom Hiddleston. Not necessarily in that order.”
        I wouldn’t do that, specially if I was a friend or Gf of his.. one has to think first…

        *eyerolling*

        But let’s hope they’re happy.. whatever…

      • Portia says:

        Hahaha! Oh wow! That’s definitely JA for sure! Well she’s one lucky woman. Idk about the married part but if he did do it in secret, I do not blame him. Some of his fans ARE insane.

        So I guess him and JA are going strong and steady then. It’s a really half ass way to keep a relationship quiet but oh well whatever floats their boat. Good luck and best wishes to them! :D

      • jammypants says:

        @Nighty, hahahaha! I don’t know why but I find that tweet really funny! I don’t think it’s fangirly, but cheeky I give her that lol

      • Intro Outro says:

        Ehehehe, got busted, Hiddles? :D

        I don’t know whether saying that stuff about “not having anything to write home about” can be considered lying. The guy might have been unsure about the relationship at that point. I once dated a guy for 2 years and we basically got together, then fell apart, then got together again, and all in all had a hell of a bumpy ride, and all this happened because while we really liked each other, we didn’t quite fit together due to a number of reasons. Now that I look back at it, I guess to an outsider our relationship looked seriously screwed up – but we honestly just needed time to figure out our feelings.

        Now, marriage is another thing. The original post in French says “The actor who plays Thor’s brother Loki came to eat at our restaurant. Both he and his wife Mr and Mrs Hiddleston were very nice”. The poster might easily be wrong though. I’m gonna wait for Tom’s comments before I jump to any other conclusions though.

      • Kate2 says:

        @joe spider

        I thought we figured out it was in April or May of last year? Am I mistaken?

        Her left hand is visible in the pic, can’t tell if there’s a ring there or not. Or maybe they did it spur of the moment and they’ll do the ring thing when they get back. Who the hell knows.

      • Kate says:

        Most fans don’t care her because she is known for being a very crude, and crass woman. Not only does she speak about her sex dreams on twitter (before a clean up) and how she enjoys getting drunk, laid and many other things she also was very braggy and VERY detailed about Tom to the people that work for her. There were many people who claimed (at the time) to work for her that described her as clingy, fangirl type and couldn’t believe how she was acting. Now, considering this is the exact same behavior we have seen from her it basically confirms it. I think that’s where it all comes from.

      • Ellen says:

        fangirl Jane would believe his lies when he’s been knocking off other women whilst he’s away working because she has superiority over his other fangirls.

        What annoys me the most is that she constantly fanbaites.

      • JulK says:

        I completely agree with Nighty. She doesn’t behave like a grown up woman at all.

        In fact, it’s strange to favourite things about your bf overall. Especially, as she only favourite things from fans and childish. She didn’t even favourite him being nominated for the Oliviers!! That’s a big deal for him.

      • M.A.F. says:

        The whole “wife” thing (for those who are new to Hiddlestson)-this is not the first time someone he has dated (? in this case) has been labeled his “wife.” When he first stepped out with Susannah publicly in 2011 she was labeled his wife and not girlfriend. That is referred to on Tumblr as HiddlesGate 2011.

        Keep in mind too, he never said where he was going. The airline escort said he was going to Tahiti w/whom she assumed was his girlfriend. It was also his costar who said he was going to LA. So he never “lied” about where he was going.

        As far as this relationship, yes, he was quoted several times from September-November 2013 (and maybe even the ELLE 2014 article?) as being single. Maybe he has a different definition of what the word means, who knows. I am with those who took the quote “write home about” as being in a serious relationship/engaged/married. Again, people are jumping on the same bandwagon about what someone wrote in French then hit Google translator and see the word “wife.” So until he takes her on the red carpet at any event with a rock on her finger….

      • Koko says:

        Actors act and for his work this past year I give him the “Oscar”. I guess it’s something to write home about now. LOL

      • belle says:

        This whole thing is so completely bizarre. I’m not really shocked that he’s in Tahiti with his girlfriend – I kind of figured as much – but I’m honestly surprised that it’s JA.

        Also, I went ahead and found the article that said he was single, just in case anyone wanted to see it. :) London Evening Standard, October 2013 http://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/esmagazine/faking-bad-meet-hollywoods-nicest-villain-tom-hiddleston-8886197.html

      • jammypants says:

        woah, I’m a grown woman but I like to also talk about sex. Does that make me not a grown up then? Wouldn’t it be worse if I was a younger girl who likes talking about it with barely any knowledge on pregnancy or STI’s?

      • Nighty says:

        @jammy but the tweet is funny, and as a fan, an unknown fan, I’d probably like it… But as a GF, of someone who’s on the spotlight, that might seem too childish… I like certain things on Facebook but, because I also think twice before reposting them…
        I mean, I would think, my boss, my clients, what image am I giving them? Would you on your twitter talk about sex when you know your boss is reading / might read it?

      • Janeite says:

        Whoever she is, she’s pretty. And assuming that it is Jane Arthy, I still don’t see where the liar thing is coming from. And just for the sake of argument, even if he had lied and said he didn’t have a girlfriend when he really did, what the heck difference does it make? He is under no obligation to tell the world about his life. I still like the guy regardless.

      • Hannah says:

        It was mentioned in the Elle article that he had a “girlfriend Jane” and there was no further claim that he was now single. And the interview was done after the ones in which he said he was single.

      • Kate2 says:

        @hannah -

        I didn’t read the Elle article so I don’t know what it said.

    • Dara says:

      This is awesome! I always thought the theory he was with Emma was silly – who in their right minds goes to French Polynesia (one of the most romantic places on the planet) to have a little platonic fun in the sun with your baby sister.

      Don’t think of it as lying/deceiving – they get bonus points from me for being intentionally vague in order to protect their relationship (however serious it may or may not be) from unnecessary scrutiny from those of us in the peanut gallery.

      btw – they have exquisite taste in restaurants – La Mahana looks amazing!

      • 'p'enny says:

        i agree

        And, i said it all along they were together and this holiday is probably the first time they probably talked stuff out, agreed to get serious and go public. Really happy. I am not overly judging the hiding, he has batsh”@£ fans that made his last public GF life hell.

        The restuarant would have asked permission before posting that pic, so i think this is a genuine attempt to tell the fans that its real.

        And, i think about Chris Hemsworth, he and Elsa had a whirl wind relationship and got married, before anyone knew what was happening LOL. Maybe he has followed suit and done the same thing. But, personally i expect a big society wedding. :-D i want Hello spreads.

      • Janeite says:

        Agree. They have every right to handle their relationship how they want. It’s not up to anyone else to decide that for them. If Hiddles is happy, then I’m happy for him!

      • jammypants says:

        I have to agree with Penny. The last time he was interviewed it was only a few weeks/months he may or may not be dating her (or truthfully they were photographed publically). That’s not really enough time to really make any big announcement. For all we know it might have been an on and off thing, hence those remarks and the “I’m single” statement.

        Speaking of Hemsworth, I kind of feel bad for Elsa. My god the things people say about her. What’s wrong with being a stay at home mom? She’s sure pretty so I don’t see what’s wrong with her being photo-ready. Plus, she’s married to a pretty big star.

        It might have been InnieOutie who mentioned this in another post but she is right. When it comes to women, the comments are much more vicious.

      • Dara says:

        ‘p’enny – isn’t there a theory that a spread in Hello curses the union from the jump? I don’t think we get it here in the states but could have sworn I read somewhere they pay the couple for the photos or the actual wedding, which strikes me as immensely tacky and only necessary if you want/need a) the publiclicty or b) the money. If that happens, I’ll take back the bonus points I’ve just awarded for the low-profile relationship.

        That being said, without assuming they are actually engaged, can I just fangirl for a moment imagining the guest list if there is a giant wedding? Between his actor friends and her music friends – holy sh*t! Ok- moment over, now I’m back to hoping for a small, quiet, family-only almost-secret event that is never officially announced through the PR team. No photos, no fans outside the venue, nothing, zilch, nada.

      • 'p'enny says:

        i can;t see him doing the Hello thing, that’s my secret tacky wish. He’s not the Beckhams or KAradashians. Just not his style. But, i don’t think elopement is either, he is such a family man that i could imagine his family killing him. Unless they are all there??? I can’t see any bloke getting married after just spending three months on a film set, and before that 3 months on stage. He’s not been home! let alone pack a suit. I mean did he get married in his blue t-shirt and black cardy ;-) actually love the black shirt he is wearing, he’s been shopping or Jane has packed some new togs

        in fact i am more excited about Tom wearing different clothes, and casual ones!!!!.

        The guest list would be amazing, Chris Hemsworth and Benny as besties. The dancing videos would be awesome.

        @p’enny -

        I think I’ve gone on record previously saying I wouldn’t blame him for hiding anyone considering some of his batshit fans. So I am in agreement with you there.

        I hope no one is actually “mad” over this. He owes us nothing. I will admit to being a little bummed because she strikes me as a fangirl, which I’ve also gone on record about. But who the hell am I to judge. If he’s happy, then it doesn’t matter what some rando fan (me) thinks and I’m 100% positive he doesn’t give a shit what I think either. And in the end, its truly none of our business. And I’m still a fan.

        I will say that I doubt the restaurant had anything to do with the pic being posted. It didn’t come from their FB page, it was on the personal page of someone who worked there. The airline worker didn’t ask permission either. However, they probably would know that the pic would be posted so to even have their pic taken together may be some kind of unofficial acknowledgement. Or maybe not.

        Either way, I’m going to stop speculating. Maybe they’re married or engaged or seriously dating and if so, good for them, all the best. Maybe they’re still just FWB and the person who took the pic was mistaken. Who knows, I don’t care any more. I will wait to hear from either of them or Luke Windsor that something’s up. I don’t get giddy over wedding news anyway unless I know the couple personally.

      • M.A.F. says:

        “p”enny-LOL After the shock of seeing JA in the photo my next thought was “hey, he’s got jeans on!”

      • Intro Outro says:

        @jammy:

        Nooo I don’t think I ever commented on Elsa&Chris but I’ll jump at the opportunity and say that I find her a very pretty woman and them a gorgeous couple ^_^ I know next to nothing about her – and take the comments I read here about her being a gold-digger and hunting for famous BFs with a grain of salt lol – but imo there’s nothing wrong with being a stay-at-home wife as long as both spouses feel comfortable with this situation. And this is coming from someone who works 2 jobs and absolutely loves both ;) To each his/her own.

  44. Annie says:

    Tom and BC could act the shit out of Journey’s End, but the two of them are way too old for either of the main two parts. Besides, the play was on Broadway with two really great stage/screen actors who still look young enough. Hugh Dancy and Stark Sands were perfection, and if there’s going to be a movie adaptation, those two should be considered.

  45. Lola says:

    I say Tom should invite all of us next time, and we can quote together! [An we can put numbers in his body that say apply lotion here :-) ]

    Well he appears to have proved me wrong, but I don’t blame him for wanting to keep his private life just that. Good luck to him.

  47. Koko says:

    Wonder if she’ll show up at the catwalk show now that the cat is out of the bag?

  48. Ava says:

    Honestly, I can’t tell who that is in the picture…she looks younger than JA. However, it is best to just wait and see. I really doubt the mr and mrs part, seems like an assumption like when people thought he was married to his last gf. Remember how everyone thought Ellen page with with Skarsgard a while back? Turns out she was gay. The Facebook picture was just two people relaxing. I think when he is with someone seriously we will see them like he was with SF. Tom looks relaxed but the friend/ or sister or whatever isn’t really even smiling….

    • M.A.F. says:

      She might not be a smiler.

      What I don’t get, is why is she in the photo? Then post that photo on FB?

    • belle says:

      @Ava If you look at the pictures of JA that are on her twitter you can tell it’s absolutely the same woman.

      @M.A.F. I’m starting to think it’s intentional. The airline employee letting it out that Tom was going to Tahiti with his girlfriend, and now the restaurant pic of them together… This could actually be some sort of weird PR relationship-outing plan, making it look like the news “accidentally” slipped rather than doing some big announcement.

    • icerose says:

      Well good for Tom just when it all goes quiets he pulls a fast one. Nothing like sun ,sex and surf to keep a man young and relaxed. Photo looks a bit like Jane Arty but the comments about Mr and Mrs by the chefs could be a bit of jumping to conclusions.
      I’m with the it’s his life brigade. If he does not want to talk about his love life that’s his prerogative. There are lots of actors gay and straight who choose not to comment on their relationships.

  49. Kay says:

    I don’t understand how anyone could think the woman in the picture is Emma or Sarah. She doesn’t look anything like them. It is very, very clearly JA.

    As far as the “wife” part goes, someone on Tumblr said that the waitress could have mistakenly assumed they were married if they made reservations under his name. That seems plausible to me. I would be surprised if he got engaged or married this quickly, but who knows? None of us really know him, after all.

  50. Nighty says:

    @jammypants, I also act childish, talk about sex, get drunk, etc, but there’s a place and time for everything… Her twitter profile is basically about her job, and it’s public, for the whole world to see, so i believe she needs to be more careful about it…
    All the things we say here, would we say them, knowing they can be read by anyone, if it was your name, and not a nickname (which provides with anonymacy) placed here??
    I doubt it… I know I wouldn’t, because it could damage my professional life. I’m a high school teacher who could actually be fired, if certain behaviours were out on the open, let’s be realistic.
    *Remembering a primary school teacher who got suspended for posing for Playboy; in my opinion, she didn’t do anything wrong, but society doesn’t work that way*.
    Plus, he’s a public figure, so, she also has to think about his image and not just hers…
    Got it?

  51. Ellen says:

    I agree with Junk and M.A.F.

    He must really think high of himself to make such a deal out of having a GF. I mean apart from she’s a fangirl who cares?
    He’s only famous within his fandom and that’s not huge considering others.

    I don’t get why he suddenly decided to let her be photographed with him. The whole thing has been handled very badly PR wise.

    Either he was going to be open about her or not that was up to them. What I don’t like was all this grey area around it.

    • jammypants says:

      I don’t think the public is entitled to the gray area honestly. We are however free to speculate til the cows come home =D

      • Janeite says:

        We are not entitled to anything about the man at all when it comes to how he chooses to conduct his private life. Whether we agree with it or not is irrelevant.

        It’s funny because there have been so many comments on here over the past several months about how there will be such a big meltdown on Tumblr if Hiddles ever got a girlfriend. And the meltdown is actually occuring on here! :)

      • jammypants says:

        Most definitely Janeite. I tend to agree with you on a lot of matters =)

        I know. I just thought that. It’s quite a meltdown!

      • icerose says:

        jammypants I agree its his choice to reveal what he wants about his private life and not for us to say if he is right or wrong.
        Mind you if they had a few baby Hiddles in tow as well that would be really be a story.

      • Intro Outro says:

        Yup, I think a bit of an over-reaction is definitely happening :P But. It’ll calm down soon. People get used to things very quickly.

        Personally, I’m dying to hear news from the High Rise front. Other cast members? Filming dates? A fresh Wheatley interview would be soo welcome!

    • joe spider says:

      But that’s just it, he isn’t making a deal out of having a girlfriend (just the opposite), others on here, are doing that instead.

      “Let her be photographed” “PR”

      :?

    • Intro Outro says:

      “He must really think high of himself to make such a deal out of having a GF”

      Why? What has one got to do with the other? They might have had a bumpy and on-off kind of relationship. He comes from a dysfunctional family and might be touchy about announcing anything before he and his GF are sure about their plans. Maybe they finally decided they were gonna try and take it to the next level? There are a thousand variants and we honestly don’t know which of them is true.

    • M.A.F. says:

      wait, I don’t think I said he thinks highly of himself. Did I?

      I wasn’t around for when he brought out Susannah to a few premiers in 2011 and she was mislabeled as his wife so I don’t know how bad it was for either of them as far as fan reaction goes. Although, from what I gather it was an explosion (but then again, why does he care what others think?). I only started to follow him after the Avengers and saw the old reports. It could be he took it upon himself to stay quiet and not parade the GF out unless it was something real, which I can understand…sort of. Also, from what I remember, his friend Sian Clifford got a rash of crap from his fanbase. He brought her out publicly to several events, even though it was only said they were friends, and so called fans went after her on Twitter. She was the only one out of the two of them to say anything about it too and now she no longer posts.

      I just think her in the photo is odd. It could have just been him and the two chefs. If it was me, regardless of our relationship, I would have declined since I’m not the one who is famous. I don’t know. It is over analyzing I know but hey, this is a gossip site. The only thing people can do is wait and see I guess.

  52. Ava says:

    Also just to mention his hand is outstretched behind her back and he is NOT wearing a wedding ring. It’s actually kind of a weird way he holding his hand. Not hugging just open. I also think it is normal he is on vacation with someone. I would start to wonder if he never dated anyone.

    • 'p'enny says:

      he has pudding on his fingers? and she is wearing a white jump suit, his life wouldn’t be worth living if got sticky fingers on it :-p

    • icerose says:

      Ava I wondered about that as well. Maybe they are just friends with benefits with but wow a week in Tahiti is the kind of benefit most of us would enjoy.
      I am worried for Isadora as he is obviously two timing her in Tahiti and whilst they are on holiday. Shame on the man

    • Kate2 says:

      I think the assumption was that he was enjoying himself and not dating anyone exclusively. I don’t think anyone is shocked he took someone on vacation with him.

      I did notice the open hand though, lol.

      Don’t see a ring on him, but I couldn’t tell if I saw a ring on HER. Thought I saw a slight glint but not sure. Which would mean engagement instead of marriage.

      • jammypants says:

        “I think the assumption was that he was enjoying himself and not dating anyone exclusively. I don’t think anyone is shocked he took someone on vacation with him.”

        Could be that too. If I had a “friend” and I was about to embark on a holiday for a few weeks, I’d bring said friend along too :D

    • Abby_J says:

      I am not from England, so I could be completely wrong here, but I dutifully got up VERY early in the morning to watch coverage of William and Kate’s wedding, and I vaguely seem to recall someone on BBC America saying that he wouldn’t be wearing a wedding ring because men in the UK tended not to. Maybe it was just Royal men in the UK or maybe I was sleep deprived and heard wrong. I do know that William doesn’t wear one. That said, Peter Capaldi does wear one, and I read that he will wear it as The Doctor, because he never takes it off. So sweet.

      Nothing in the above paragraph has anything to do with my opinion on whether or not Hiddles is married. I have no idea. I’d think that at the point actual vows are made, hiding it would be really silly, so I’d lean toward ‘Not married.’ Engaged, about to be engaged? Who knows!

  53. joe spider says:

    Look well if the girl in the photo is just someone who works at the restaurant, he’s not exactly clinging to her. :)

    Just a mischievous thought.

  54. Nighty says:

    Oh, whatever, if he’s happy…then fine….
    Got give it to her, she’s pretty…let’s see what comes out of it…

  55. Ellen says:

    I’m actually surprised that Luke hasn’t said anything by now. In the world of Hiddles this is huge.

  56. Miss Melissa says:

    I told you months ago they were together all along.

  57. JulK says:

    I agree with the comments that we are not entitled to anything about his private life, but it’s not that black and white when a big part of your PR is being aimed at being “Prince Charming”. This a well thought, planned and executed image that he has been running for a while now. If you are trying to keep your personal life private, then keep it private and don’t be in woman’s magazines upping your image. The whole Elle thing was aimed at that. In the Annabel Brog inteview he goes on about relationships, what kind of bf he is etc… you can’t have it both ways.

    Speaking of Prince Charming… Eddie Redmayne just climbed up a few notches on my scale. Many congratulations to him and his very classy fiance.
