Tom Hiddleston wears pimp coat, makes sexy ‘tennis noises’: would you hit it?


I saw these photos this morning and I knew that I would be writing about Tom Hiddleston today. Tom is the unlikeliest pimp in the world, right? These are newly released photos from GQ UK – they just published “bonus shots” from Tom’s November pictorial, which I’ve covered in previous posts. I guess the theme of the shoot was “autumn coats and suits” because there is A LOT of coat p0rn and coat pimping going on. Hiddles would have been a decent model if Shakespeare hadn’t come calling. Ha.

Anyway, Tom was in Australia yesterday (I think he’s still there), giving interviews and promoting the hell out of Thor 2: The Dark World. Where’s Chris Hemsworth? Don’t worry your pretty little head about it. It’s all about Loki. LOKI LOKI LOKI. Tom told one interviewer in regards to Loki, “I’ve spoken to older women who actually love the delicacy of his emotional palate. He’s actually vulnerable and heartbroken. They find that interesting.” For the love of God, Hiddles. Don’t patronizingly speak of your “older women” Loki fan-girls.

And in this interview, Tom makes “tennis noises”. They’re pretty much sex noises so just enjoy. He also talks about his main homegirl Bill Shakespeare, because of course he does.

    Who spelled palette wrong? Or did he actually MEAN palate? Oh my!

    Top picture is my favourite for ages. Just the right balance between snigger and sex that I need for my TommyAnne supper.

    ETA: something disturbs me about the waistcoat photo. It looks like Photoshop for Hiddles-ana or something.

    • Eve says:

      He meant palate. He is *that* poetic, you see.

      • Sixer says:

        It’s a shame. I don’t want him for his word play.

      • allons-y alonso says:

        Speaking of word play… you know he’d be ‘that guy’ who would play the most bullshit words in ‘words with friends’ and get a million points just to annoy you. I get really competitive and snippy with that game. Is it just me?

      • Sixer says:

        Ooh. Explain the game. I don’t know it!

      • Lucrezia says:

        It’s basically scrabble.

        I happened to read your Chaucer quote (below), before reading this. So I had to laugh. I’m pretty sure breaking out the Middle English is exactly the kind of scrabble faux pas allons-y was talking about.

      • Sixer says:


      • Lucrezia says:

        That may have come out wrong. It’s a GOOD thing. You can play Scrabble with Tommy so he doesn’t have to nag allons-y to play.

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        I can whip anyone’s ass in scrabble…. *knucklecrack* Take me on, Tommy……

      • Sixer says:

        @ Lucrezia – oh, I deserved it. I got so carried away I disappeared into a proverbial orifice.

        @ Miss J – I LOVE Scrabble. We could team tag TommyAnne.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Hey now. If we’re tag-teaming TommyAnne in any capacity, I want in.

      • Lucrezia says:

        I don’t want to interrupt the tag-team, but Sixer, I honestly didn’t mean to slap ya down for the Chaucer. Break out the Middle English whenever you feel moved to do so. I actually love the intellectual side of this site. I was just amused by the timing (I read the two posts straight after each other) and trying to share the amusement, but it came out wrong.

        Okay, back to the Scrabble tag-team! How much is ballgag worth?

      • Sixer says:

        @ Lucrezia – I thought you were laughing at me, rather than slapping me down. Which is finer than fine – a} I deserved mocking and b) we can like things and laugh at them: why else do we visit Tommy’s threads, after all?!

        @ Fanty – well, what exactly are you bringing to the tag team table?

      • T.Fanty says:

        Are we talking in terms of my extensive vocabulary or my expansive collection of switches and paddles?

      • Ginger says:

        @ Lucrezia the intellectual and creative comments keep me coming back to this blog over all others

      • allons-y alonso says:

        @Lucrezia. I’ll still play. It’s way more fun when it gets heated. ;P

      • EscapedConvent says:


        I love Tommy’s emotional palate.

        & I am fighting the urge to “caption” all of these pics, especially the last one which shows him waiting at a booth in a diner, waiting for Shakespeare to meet him for cocktails, after someone has just told him that Shakes, like Santa Clause, isn’t coming.

      • EscapedConvent says:


        “Words With Friends” is the game that got Alec Baldwin heaved off an airplane when he refused to get off his cell phone.

        I hear it can be addicting.

        (But I’m sure Alec Baldwin would have been kicked off that airplane anyway, for something.)

    • Mary-Rose says:

      The first picture is funny, it’s just his expression. I bet it was the end of a long photo shoot and he just did a few stupid poses for a laugh

  2. T.fanty says:

    Yep. Emotional delicacy. I’m ALL about that. That’s completely the essence of what I want from
    TommyAnne when he dresses in leather.

    • Sixer says:

      Well, it could be delicacy in the sense of food. You wouldn’t want to be queasy when you’re in flagrante, would you?

      • T.fanty says:

        Like any food in play is getting eaten as a meal.

      • Sixer says:

        Not even the glace cherry in the Fizzy Hiddles? Is he actually saying that the Pervy Tombanger is not for him? Too crude?

      • T.fanty says:

        Oh, don’t even ask where the cherry went. The only reason we know it’s still there is because we can see the stem poking out.

      • Sixer says:

        I admire the enterprise.

        A wys womman wol sette hire evere in oon
        to gete hire love.

      • T.fanty says:

        I know that isn’t Wife of Bath, but now, all I can imagine is TommyAnne in the pimp coat, sitting by a fire, reading from his book of Wicked Wives.

      • Sixer says:

        I would remove the gag for that!

    • Miss Jupitero says:

      I have a very delicate ball gag ready…..

  3. allons-y alonso says:

    I WANT ALL THE COATS!!! with Shakespeare fan-girling, tennis loving English man included.

  4. blue marie says:

    That last photo is pretty hot so maybe. There’s been so many posts about him lately that I fell like I should give it up (pun intended)

    I’m doing Miss M.’s moderation dance to try to turn back the tide.

    • Vesta says:

      “so many posts about him lately that I felt like I should give it up”

      That’s what his tactical game plan is all about, cause I’ve had those [fleeting!] feelings too.

    • GiGi says:

      I’ve been resisting, too… but now I think it’s pointless.

      I don’t really even find him that attractive, but he does have that certain something, right? I’d give it to him, but I’d make him work for it.

    • blue marie says:

      So can we all agree that Kaiser is in fact a Tommyanna pimp and deserves to wear the coat in the first pic?

  5. Anna says:

    Oh my. He is an odd little biscuit, isn’t he? I don’t even know what kind of a reaction to have to this video.

    I prefer yesterday’s photos to today’s lineup, even though the last two coats are pretty great on their own.

    • LadySlippers says:


      I agree. Today’s pics leave me w/ an taste in my mouth (that also could be do to a lack of dental hygiene). 😉

      Odd little biscuit. Hmmm that’s the best description I’ve seen of him. BZ (Bravo Zulu) for that.

  6. Eve says:

    I find every single one of these pictures ridiculous (well, maybe not the last one).

    • Sixer says:

      Oh, Eve. How can you resist faux fur, a polo neck and a look of rabbit-in-the-headlights astonishment? He knows I’m coming for him in that top photo. And he knows I carry a gag.

      • Eve says:

        Sorry, the busted pimp look doesn’t do it for me.

        P.S.: I sincerely hope that’s faux fur (and not tinted real fur), because I’m certain that pattern belongs to an endangered species.

      • T.fanty says:

        The first one is saying to me “it doth be hard out there for a pimp. Sirrah.”

      • Sixer says:

        Or he’s going for a part in a Ken Russell film and he’s trying to look like a kindred spirit?

      • Londongal says:

        Hey Sixer, I’m confused re: the general consensus of TH’s sub/dom predlictions. He’s sub, right? I get major Sub/masochistic vibes anyway.

      • Sixer says:

        @ Londongal – no idea! In my world, he’s sub or nothing. I couldn’t take Tommy without my best gag.

      • T.fanty says:

        He’s EVERYONE’s sub. We don’t even allow him a safe word. And we wouldn’t have him any other way.

      • Sixer says:

        Eggzackerly. Safe word schmafe word.

      • Londongal says:

        LOVE. IT. The safeword rhymes with ‘Orange’. :-}

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        *Whispers to TommAnnE*

        I know te day out of this one…. Oh wait! I see Benedict! Be back later!

      • EscapedConvent says:


        I thought of that pimp song too. I believe that Tommy would sing it with such hushed passion, such emotional delicacy…..

        that all of ya’ll who are making fun of him would gnash your sparkling Hiddleston teeth.

    • Lindy79 says:

      I do too Eve. (hope you’re feeling better! x)

      I’m sorry but they are hideous (last one except) and his go-to facial expressions are ridiculous. I’m off to look at Cumby’s green shirt picture to cleanse my eyes.

      He looks great in the interview though. I did love her reaction to hob-nob biscuits.
      I was hoping his tennis noises would be more along the “grunting while playing” variety but sadly not.

  7. Leah says:

    You realize you’ve come a long way with British men and interviews when “Tom Hiddleston makes tennis noises” doesn’t make you reread the title. Of course Hiddles is making tennis noises, darling, he’s an artist!

    And I think I’ve swung back around to appreciating the Hiddles for all his Hiddly-ness. Maybe?

  8. Tish says:

    Uhh… why is he the only one who seems to be promoting Thor?! I know he’s enjoying the attention but where the eff is Hemsworth?

  9. Samtha says:

    Where IS Hemsworth? Didn’t he leave his old manager/agent last year? Or am I thinking of someone else? Someone is giving him really poor career advice.

    Regardless, he needs to rethink his career strategy. Rush’s box office performance shows that he’s not as big as he thinks he is yet, at least in the US. He needs Thor, and he needs someone on his team to remind him of that.

    Also, that last pic of Hiddleston is beautiful.

  10. HiHa says:

    Stop thinking Loki, damn it.Just do it…

  11. j.eyre says:

    Yes, of course he speaks of Shakespeare – because the interviewer asked him directly.

    I don’t care – you lot can make fun of Pimp Daddy Tommyanna all you want. I have my fingers firmly stuck in my ears and am repeating “lalalalala” because I have fur-collared, grunting, hob-nob-dipping emotionally-delicate Tommyanna to sustain me today.

    • Sixer says:

      I have chocolate Hob Nobs right here, right now. I’ll pass you the packet to make a Hansel and Gretel-style Tommy trail.

      • Anna says:

        I am thinking more of a treasure trail… or pleasure trail?

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        Could you mail me some job nobs? I can’t find them here!

        Fugly coats for the most part, and I don’t think he is a model. But he is so loaded with unintentional comedy, it is hard not to want to tie him up.

      • j.eyre says:

        I don’t want him to ruin his appetite on the wrong biscuit so I have written a sonnet in self bronzer down the front of my torso. His reward for a proper reading is a buffet.

      • T.fanty says:

        I at least hope the sonnet is a blazon to emotional delicacy. Articulated, of course, in verse that begins “there once was a lady from Thornfield….”

      • Lucrezia says:

        Are we back on biscuits and delayed gratification again?

        Normally I’m all for that, but I don’t think we should bring Cookie Monster into this – I’m quite worried that the fur trim on the first coat is the remnant of one of Cookie’s relatives.

      • j.eyre says:

        Fanty – it wasn’t a sonnet so much as a line lifted from “Alice in Wonderland”

      • Lucrezia says:

        Limerick challenge?

        There once was a lady from Thornfield,
        To Tom’s tongue she wanted to yield,
        But there was a snag –
        He wore a ball-gag,
        And his tongue was thus quite concealed.

      • Vesta says:

        @T.Fanty – Awww, what are you doing ? I hadn’t seen that before, and now my permanently frozen little Scandinavian heart is crying some icy tear drops out of mere joy *sniff*

      • j.eyre says:

        *unties bonnet and doffs it at the magnificent Lucrezia*

      • Eve says:

        @ Lucrezia:

        I’d kiss you right now if it wasn’t (weren’t?) for the phlegm.

      • T.Fanty says:

        *joyfully throws dragonfly confetti over Lucrezia*

      • Lucrezia says:

        *blushes, and takes a bow*

        @ Eve: blow me an air-kiss, honey. Not because I’m scared of your cooties, just the boys are watching and we don’t want to get ’em all riled up if you’re not well enough.

      • Eve says:

        @ Lucrezia:

        I thought about that…but don’t you think it would be even worse? I mean, a virus-riddled blown kiss? Believe me, this is such a nasty, persistent flu I think you could catch it there (in Australia, right?).

        I’m going to kiss the monitor instead.


      • Marty says:

        If anyone’s interested in this, Tom and Chris will both be participating in this Skype thing….

      • Anna says:

        HE IS PERFECT. Gosh, HIS voice wins over Tommy’s over Cumby’s. The only one who might possibly compete is my forever dong Alan Rickman.

      • j.eyre says:

        Yes, but even I am jumping on the kaiser train of “get that gorgeous @$$ of yours out there and promote this.” No, I wasn’t sated during Rush.

        I fear Malibu Barbie has him picking out paint chips for the new pad.

      • Marty says:

        For shame Miss J! He’s in London right now working on a movie. How else do you expect him to buy you all the latest bonnets?

        Remora apparently hasn’t been getting enough attention from anyone, so she sold a story to Radar about her and Miley…smh.

      • Anna says:

        You might be right, Miss Jane. But then where are the paps shots?

        ETA – for reals, Marty? I will be searching for THAT after my Karaoke party tonight.

      • j.eyre says:

        I considered that Marty, but Ron Howard is currently doing all the stand in for CHemboy so I don’t think he is filming yet. I am fairly certain he had to write the Thor promotion into his contract – Marvel wasn’t going to let him off.

        But yes, where are the pap shots if Malibu Remora has him? Where are the interviews if he’s promoting and why is Howard his double if he’s filming. Dammit – which one of you has him? GIVE HIM BACK!

    • Anna says:

      Awww. And he is always SO eager to oblige, in any way he can! That’s what I love about him.

  12. serena says:

    He’s so charming, sigh.
    And apart from Hiddle, I like Loki too. So YAY! for all the Loki promotion!

    • Nikki says:

      YES! I love Loki, as well. I don’t understand why some people think he’s going overboard with the Loki talk. A). He has a movie to promote (ahem: Chris: ahem), and B). The interviewers ASK him these questions.

      I think he comes across very charming and soft, in a way

      • icerose says:

        The tennis just makes me think he would be great fun to hang out with-I love a a man who flirts just for the fun of it and with either sex-they are so much fun to have around.

  13. Redirected says:

    Have you seen one of the last self-pics? Ughh.
    Still can’t hate him but… When I think he can’t become more awkward – there you go.

  14. Vesta says:

    So I hear Tommy is obsessed with tennis.
    Well, I like tennis a lot too.

    *realizes having something common with TommyAnnE*


    *jumps off the building à la Reichenbach*

    • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

      *places pillows on top of trampoline to break Vesta’s fall*.

      Nope, nope nope no ma’am. You can’t give up just because you too have a love of tennis in common with Tommyanne. A lot of people like tennis! Bradley Cooper, Gerard Butler, The Middletons …

      er, here. Just take this mimosa and forget I even opened my mouth.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Probeer! Shush. If she wants to voluntarily thin the Cumberherd, let her (although if that’s the case, I’d rather she threw someone else off and spared her lovely self).

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        I’ll only shush if you promise to tell me what chocolate hob-nobs are.

      • Sixer says:

        @ ProBeer. Nicer than KitKats but not as nice as Orange Clubs.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Better than bourbons, but not as good as jaffa cakes.

        We TOTALLY cleared that up.

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        Whoa. I thought I had a decent grasp of English candy from my local World Market, but I need further education here:

        The hob nobs do sound good. What’s in them, excatly? And Orange Clubs? I’m assuming bourbons are chocolate covered bourbon bites? Or are they like bon-bons?

      • Lucrezia says:

        Lol! This is a fun game.

        Like Anzac biscuits but with chocolate. Not as good as Tim Tams, but much better than a Sao.

        (We have Chocolate HobNobs in Australia, not sure why the interviewer didn’t recognise them.)

      • Sixer says:

        *takes pity on ProBeer*

        Hobnobs are like digestives but more um… rustic!

        They’re nicer than Rich Tea but not as nice as Tunnocks Caramel Wafers.

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        @Sixer – ah, I see! So they’re nicer than Oatmeal Cream Pies, but not as nice as nice as Swiss Rolls?

      • Sixer says:


        (The only American candy I know is the Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup).

      • T.Fanty says:

        American candy is RUBBISH by comparison.

        Oh yes. I said it. And if you didn’t create a chocolate bar and name it a Curly-Wurly, you can just sit down right now. Your argument is invalid.

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        @ Fanty – oh darling, you WENT there, didn’t you? The problem is you’re talking about mainstream American goodies! You gotta go regional. You know why we’re all fat here down South? Because we have the best treats. 😀 (but really, you’re gonna trash Dove chocolates?)

        @ Sixer – I’ll make this “US Candy” lecture fun for you with a true story: My room mate was asking me for clever ideas for party favors at her engagement party. She wanted to do candy with little stickers on it that announced the wedding. These were my ideas that she rejected:

        Mounds – Because they’re her fiance’s favorite part of her.
        Milky Way – do we need an explanation for this one?
        Snickers – what Roomie does when Fiance takes his pants off
        Almond Joy – sometimes you feel like a nut, because you accepted the proposal.
        Three Musketeers – college sex, yo.
        Gummy Worms and Peach Rings – at this point, she told me to go away.

      • j.eyre says:

        “American candy is RUBBISH by comparison.” – you only say that because you don’t have See’s on your Coast.

      • Sixer says:

        @ProBeer. Come to Momma! I love that!

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        @ Mrs. Eyre – my Midwestern cousins swear by Peases’s Candies. I’ve had some, and i have to say that they’re onto something.

      • j.eyre says:

        @ProBeer – oh, I have never heard of this Peases – I must find it. I hail from the San Francisco Bay area so I was surrounded by See’s AND Ghirardelli. I am simply going to ignore Fanty’s comment – she’s obviously drunk again.

      • EscapedConvent says:


        See’s….deep sigh….

        And does no one care about Godiva or Teuscher? No?

    • T.fanty says:

      It’s a sign. We at the Cumberclub will await your letter of resignation.

      • Vesta says:

        Resignation? No no no.

        Right now I’m with Benedict, floating in that weightless and limitless state between Sherlock seasons 2 and 3.

        Ever wondered how space s£x would feel like? Well, since we are doing it all here, I’ll tell you when we finally come down and the new season begins.

    • T.Fanty says:

      @ Probeer,

      Yes, and I come from the city that invented cronuts.

      I love Southern cuisine in every way, but when it comes to chocolate and general sweeties, you people can’t compete.

      Side note: I live in a bit of a frat-boy neighborhood, and the best cookies I’ve ever had come from a local store named Baked: Late Night Cookies. They bake cookies at night and deliver until 3am. Genius.

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        Mmhmm. *side eyes with pursed lips*. You keep thinking that. I’ll just chill over here with my dark chocolate turtles and slice o’ pecan pie.

        Ha! That cookie store is genius! When I was in college the first time around, the girl scouts would sell cookies on campus. You could tell what time of day it was by the crowd in front of their booth. (Let me take this moment to point out too that Girl Scout cookies ARE from a Southern Lady – Ms. Julliette Gordan Lowe was from Savannah).

      • Sixer says:

        I am munching a Galaxy Caramel. Jus’ sayin’.

      • Vesta says:

        @ProBeer – You’ve talked with such a lovely dedication about different candies & pastries here, that it doesn’t even matter many of them are unfamiliar to me – I’m anyway totally forgiving your mention of Butler, Cooper & Co. somewhere above.

        And actually, I knew already you were a good person – anyone who puts beer in her name MUST be good 🙂

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        @Vesta – 😀 😀 😀 I don’t know how to make those smiles any bigger, but I totally have the biggest, cheesiest grin going on in real life. 😀 *d’awwwwwwwwww blushes*

      • LadySlippers says:


        That’s only when you are talking about cheap American milk chocolate that’s super waxy… You have to search out better stuff that’s outside mainstream candy.

        So our milk chocolate sucks but we can rock a chocolate dessert. Mississippi Mud Pie? Death by Chocolate? Better than Sex? All American desserts and fantastic!

        So there! 😉

  15. GeeMoney says:

    I like Hiddleston and all… but I don’t understand the immense fascination with him (says the woman who love love loves Benedict Cumberbatch, lol).

  16. TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

    You called him a pimp? Did you forget your Shakespeare? Fishmonger, lady! Fishmonger! (see: Hamlet to Polonius, Act Don’t Remember, Scene Just Thought it Was a Snappy Insult)

    oh, btw, hi ladies! *waves* I made ball-gag cupcakes! Red velvet. Hope you like them.

    • Sixer says:

      Ball gag cupcakes, you say?

      My life is complete.

    • EscapedConvent says:


      This is scandalous! WHY has no one ever thought of ball-gag cupcakes before?

      It’s probably too late to copyright it now. :-/

  17. Nan St. George says:

    Can someone please explain to me why some people here refer to him as TommyAnne? Is that a joke about him being sensitive or effeminate or something?

    • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

      It’s a play on Pollyanna, because he seems so eternally optimistic. The “Anne” part comes from Anne-with-an-E Hathaway, because some can argue that he is just as pretentious as her. And now it’s his name here. TommyannE the Dragonfly King.

    • Lucrezia says:

      It’s bit of a blend of Anne Hathaway (over-enthusiastic, little bit try-hard) and Pollyanna (children’s book character who was optimistic to the point of naivety).

      But some of us just use it as a cutesy nickname, with no intent to shade.

      So really, what it means depends who’s using it and the context.

      Edit: ProBeer beat me to it.

    • Miss Jupitero says:

      I think we need to create a glossary to link to…..

    • icerose says:

      They just use the name to keep the hiddles feelings at bay as individually they all really yearn to partake of the light hearted joy of being a dragon fly. But having spent to long in the wilderness worshipping the dour dragon of pomposity they can no longer find there way back to the joy of youthful pleasures. It takes a brave heart to lead the herd out of the darkness and into the land of all things fun and flirty

      • LadySlippers says:

        @IceRose — That was poetic!

        And Lucrezia’s limerick was simply stupendous!

        Gosh, what a productive day…. I’ve studied both poetry & history. Plus, learned a bit about British politics. And candy. Can’t forget the important stuff.

    Ball gag red velvet cake?!? Where does the line begin?!?

    • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

      Right behind you. Grab some cupcakes and run out of the way before a food fight starts and Mrs. Eyre gets stabby (red velvet in the embroidered cushions is a pain in the ass to get out)!

      • j.eyre says:

        Darling, I never get stabby – you have your CB!tches confused. I may wield a mean pair of knitting needles but in the end, all you’ll get from a fight with me is a nice little brioche stitched scarf that matches your wounds.

        Good lord, people – it’s like you all have never even been to Thornfield.

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        Mrs. Eyre, you look me in the eyes and deny that incident with the meat cleaver because EsCon, Anna, The Hedgehogs, and I got all “sorority girl pillow fight” with that german chocolate cake in your library! I was *terrified* that you’d revoke my invite to Thornfield because every time you looked at me, your eye twitched and you muttered something about cleaning the coconut shavings out of your imitation Bayeux Tapestry.

      • j.eyre says:

        I am trying looking you in the eye – let’s not make fun of my height now too. Yes, I was miffed at the cake incident – I wasn’t carving that ice sculpture of The Mac teaching Luke Bryan to dance for my benefit. By the time I got in the library, you ladies had rassled yourselves into exhaustion and I was left to entertain myself.

        And I think it is so cute you still think it was coconut I was trying to get out of the Faux Bayeaux. Don’t you know TommyAnna takes that thing down every time he’s feeling Plantagenet? (I let the periodic discrepancy slide because he looks so good when he conquers)

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        Heh, I remember that ice sculpture! Too bad it melted before you had a chance to finish it – I was hoping to see your rendering of Luke’s Dirty Bird. And we all know that if it isn’t Shakespeare, Tommyanne isn’t going to bother with period details. I had him convinced that Harold Hardrada was trying to hold the English throne because the conditions in SW England at the beginning of the second millennium were perfect for coconut and pineapple plantations. It was better than telling the truth about the icing on the tapestry.

        p.s. I just had a thought of what Tommyanne has to think of us if he ever reads these threads. I swear though, if he starts name dropping any of the treats we talked about today I’m totally sending him some fan art of Loki rendered in M&M’s and Reeses Pieces. I’ll make it big enough that it’ll have to be delivered in another “really big van”.

      • Ncboudicca says:

        Wait, wait – when did we start talking about Luke Bryan??!!

  19. Shw says:

    Minion and I have spent all day discussing this man. We are usually all about the ‘batch. Help.
    It’s like a communicable disease.

  20. flower says:

    Worst pictures ever, they make him look like a detachable lord of the manor. But I’d still do him, take that gear off first yeah.

    • Lucrezia says:

      Detachable lord of the manor.


      I didn’t think Lords were normally stuck on.

      On one hand, I’m loving the mental picture, on the other hand, I’m not sure what you actually meant.

      (BTW, now I have Detachable Pen*s stuck in my head.)

  21. YuYa says:

    That would be a hell no, never ever ever. He has as much sex appeal as a loan office at the local credit union.

  22. Leah says:

    another pointless post about this guy. only thing i get from this is that he is very effeminate.

  23. Ncboudicca says:

    I assume I would fall into his definition of “older woman” and I’m afraid I would have to spank him for any talk of delicacy once I trap him in a closet at Thornfield.

  24. Nan St. George says:

    @ TheyPromisedMeBeer and Lucrezia- Thanks for the explanation! You Celebitchy posters are too funny!

  25. Grant says:

    “The delicacy of his emotional palate”…? Like… WTF does that even mean???

  26. Ginger says:

    Unfortunately I can’t see the video on my phone blast it! I will have to Ty later on at home. I’m certain I qualify as one of Hiddles “older women” Ladies may I borrow the ball gag?

  27. C. says:

    That leopard monstrosity was actually the most expensive item out of his $30,000 GQ wardrobe therefore it deserves a bit of respect as does the $200 scarf. I watched that video and all I can think of watching him make those excited faces is that he probably makes the same face when he goes for his rectal prostate exam.

    • Eve says:

      So it’s real fur? *BARFS*

      • C. says:

        I don’t know any faux fur coats that cost $8,000 dollars so either that coat is made out of gold from Chris Hemsworth’s ass or he’s wearing dead animal around his neck.

      • Eve says:

        Well, I googled it…it’s from Louis Vuitton so I doubt it’s faux fur.

        Oh, god…a beautiful leopard was killed so Hiddleston could wear that ridiculous coat.

        Again, BARFS! I’m outta here.

      • C. says:

        Sadly Tom is too busy quoting Shakespeare, making tennis noises, and kneeling for his fans to concern himself with such things. Maybe he’ll pull a Paul McCartney one day, but he’s to absorbed with himself 99% of the time so I wouldn’t count on it.

      • Eve says:

        I’m getting depressed. It’s already extinct in many regions.

        Going to bed now (to nurse this flu and cry a little — not joking).

      • C. says:

        Feel better Eve! Shed a tear or two for me.

      • Lindy79 says:

        Real fur…oh dear TommyannE. Ypuve plummeted in my estimation.

      • Resnictem says:

        Really, TommyAnnE, Leopard fur always, always, ALWAYS looks better on the original owner.

        Man, I really didn’t like the pimp before, goes double now.

  28. Chef Grace says:

    Sad to think he would wear real animal fur. Watch out Cookie Monster. Some new pics popping up of him holding fans and carrying fans around on his back. He does like to get all touchy feely with them.
    Back to baking shortbread now.

  29. Browniecakes says:

    Does this mean we are Dragonflies no more? Are we Leopards now? Beats cougars I guess (and am). These are the oddest photos. The last one looks like he is about to break up with me after a night of drinking too much Hiddlefizzles and Jameson.

  30. Naddie says:

    Oh man, he’s such an idiot, but I love him so much!

  31. Miss M says:


  32. MissThing says:

    WTH is wrong with wearing real animal fur… It’s not like he went out and demanded its pelt. It is my understanding that for photoshoots like this, they don’t really get to be choosy about what they are modeling beyond certain limits.

    I personally would wear the fur with pride, but then I am a top predator myself and such things are seemly for someone of my status 😉

    If I ever get to talk to him (in my fantasy world), I’ll ask about the damn fur ok?

    • C. says:

      And WTH is wrong about being upset that he’s wearing fur? Some people are just very passionate about it there’s no need to get all feisty everyone is entitled to their opinions.

    • Havik says:

      I agree, he didn’t go out and demand the beast be slaughtered for this hideous coat, but he’s a big enough star he could have told them no real fur, and to give him something else.

      I don’t think it’s real leopard fur (everything I’m finding describes it as ‘naturally coloured mink’), but the snow leopard (inhabiting the Himalayas that this collection was supposedly inspired by) IS endangered.

      I have an issue wearing fur from endangered species, sorry. Top predator or not, that’s where I draw the line (and for what it’s worth, I come from a family of subsistence hunters, so I don’t necessarily take issue with animal products)

  33. Mary-Rose says:

    Am I the only one who finds my heart melting when he talks about tea and hobnobs rather than the fake put on Tennis noises? There’s nothing id like to do more now than to tell him to put his feet up and bring him a nice cuppa with hobnobs. I will then insist he tries dunking in bourbons because they are the best dunking biscuit

  34. Ncboudicca says:

    I don’t think this is real – trafficking in snow leopard fur is illegal in most countries. It’s gotta be fake

    • Ncboudicca says:

      Apparently the “Stephen Sprouse leopard pattern” is a well-known LV motif. I think it may be fox fur dyed to look like leopard or it’s fake

      • DahliaDee says:

        @Ncboudicca: Precisely. If you squint hard enough, you can see that it’s a pattern. Like another commenter said, I don’t hang around in jungles much either, but I doubt that real leopards, or any other spotted animals for that matter have even 2 identical spots.

    • icerose says:

      I am pretty sure you are right and I cannot see GQ putting themselves in an awkward position let alone putting Tom in one although some of the photos do suggest someone had some depth perception issues when he was clicking away.
      And of course they male $8000 dollar coats for all those celebs who want to keep there eco credentials clean but would not be seen in anything less than $8000.

    • lc says:

      I fully believe that it is faux fur AND still costs $8000. Fashion magazines are all about shilling ridiculously priced items. If you need a good laugh go through any issue of Harper’s Bazaar.

    • browniecakes says:

      I don’t get to the jungle much, but I don’t think leopards come in grey.

    • Eve says:

      @ DahliaDee and Browniecakes:

      This may not be real leopard fur — like Roberta said above, it’s probably dyed mink fur. So it *IS* real fur anyway.

      The coat costs around £ 5,000. Louis Vuitton is not known for faux fur.

      By the way, real fur can be tinted,, they do that all the time. So your poor, unoriginal attempt at sarcasm (“I don’t get to the jungle much, leopards don’t come in grey”) was uncalled for.

      • DahliaDee says:

        @Eve, I’m sorry about that, it was uncalled for, but it was also not at all personal, and I’m frankly surprised at your reaction. You feel personally slighted by a bit of sarcasm directed to no one in particular? Ummm…

      • Eve says:

        @ DahliaDee:

        No, I don’t. I love sarcasm (even when it’s specifically directed at me)…except when the subject being discussed involves the suffering and excruciating deaths of millions of defenseless animals.

        But I’ve always noticed, whenever people bring these things up, an annoyingly condescending tone, jokes and uncalled for sarcasm by those who don’t give a f*ck about animals. It’s infuriating. We’re already losing the fight and people think that’s funny?

        There are things I simply don’t joke about. Fur and blood sports are among them.

      • DahliaDee says:

        With the risk of being shunned for this, sometimes I feel that there is a bit too much misguided contempt directed at certain celebrities. One such example is the recent nonexistent Lorde controversy, and let’s not pretend she was not criticized here as well, in an earlier post, and I also found it funny that while certain criticism was sparked by her Photoshop comments vs her cover, there were comments on her looks, specifically that she “looks old(er)” in the new post.

        Thing is, I know many of you have often mentioned that “every time you come around to TH, he goes and does this or that and puts you off again”. But the sheer disdain and uttter superiority noticeable from some of the commenters is what keeps the flames alive for me. Since we all agree that he’s basically the overexcited carpet piddling-prone puppy, whenever he gets kicked on here, I just give in all over again, because, well, kicked puppy…

        I will now not retire to the tumblr I don’t have an account for, in the hope that you will notice no names have been named, nor have any fingers been pointed.

      • DahliaDee says:

        @Eve, duly noted, and understood.

      • DahliaDee says:

        And a P.S. to my other comment, I also find it hard to take people who can’t distinguish between “we’re” and “were”, “who’s” and “whose” etc seriously. English is my third language, and I am far from being oh-so-intelligent. So native speakers, take my word for it, you can do it!

        Oh yes, I know exactly what a condescending bitch I am, please don’t waste your energy in trying to point it out, and thank you!

      • Eve says:

        @ DahliaDee:

        I never accused you of being on Tumblr — I know we often mention them (as an example of his most ardent fans/the ones who follow him on Twitter).

        And no, I don’t hate him for behaving like an overexcited puppy. Sometimes I do find that endearing — the way we criticize Hiddleston here seems pretty fair to me since we do aknowledge his qualities from time to time (or we do that at the same time we harp on him).

        He loves the camera and being photographed. He loves being famous. That’s fine by me.

        I only have a problem with Hiddleston when, in order to be in the public eye, the man is willing to do anything. You must admit that he does that quite often.

      • Eve says:

        “And a P.S. to my other comment, I also find it hard to take people who can’t distinguish between “we’re” and “were”, “who’s” and “whose” etc seriously. English is my third language, and I am far from being oh-so-intelligent. So native speakers, take my word for it, you can do it!”

        Jesus Christ, Dahlia! What the hell are you talking about?

        I didn’t type “were” (meaning “we’re”– we are), nor did I type “who’s” (meaning “whose”). I didn’t actually use the word “whose” in any of my comments.

        English isn’t my first language either but I rarely make mistakes like that.

        Seriously, I’m going to reread my comments to see where I made the mistakes you’re claiming (I made).

      • Eve says:


        I reread my comments. Nope, I didn’t make the mistakes you pointed out in your “P.S.”. Or maybe you’re (as in “you were”) talking about this excerpt?

        “But I’ve always noticed, whenever people bring these things up, an annoyingly condescending tone, jokes and uncalled for sarcasm by those who don’t give a f*ck about animals. It’s infuriating. We’re already losing the fight and people think that’s funny?”

        If that was the case, then you misread it. Because I meant to say “THOSE”, the plural of that (not “whose”). And I wrote “we’re” (we are) correctly.

      • DahliaDee says:

        Jesus, Eve, why do you think it was meant for you, specifically, again? Fine, my fault, I should have mentioned the p.s. was referring to my other non-addressed comment.

      • Eve says:

        I assumed that because we were having sort of a mini-conversation (just the two of us).

        I did think you could be addressing people generically (the grammar thing), as many here make the mistakes you mentioned. But I honestly couldn’t tell (if it was meant generically or specifically to me).

        My apologies.

      • DahliaDee says:

        No problem.
        And I’ve got the flu as well, so you have my sympathies. Get well soon, feisty lady!

  35. Angel May says:

    I don’t care if the man wears fur. He can rock it like Joan Collins.

    Tom looked ~Rachel Zoe voice~ INSANE in that black fur cloak he wore in Henry IV.

    • Roberta says:

      That wasn’t real fur

    • icerose says:

      Tom rocks most things including older women. At least two of his romantic leads films have been older than him and seeing him with Helen Mirren just set me yearning for them to pair up film wise at some point.
      I love that he publically recognises that not all fans are young teens or middle of the road housewives. Lets here it for the sophisticated women with with the discerning palate.

  36. Mary-Rose says:

    A few fans have posted some videos and I’ll try a repost them here if I can. In one TommyAnne is singing happy birthday. Now by his own admission he said in the past he sounds bad when he sings but recently he’s being doing just that ie bare nessisties. Now I’m in the fence with our mans singing voice sometimes he does sound very off key! Lol
    What does everybody else think? Should he stick to Shakspeare Quotes ( which he hardly has done in oz) or the spur of the moment singing?

    • icerose says:

      Poor guy sounded like he had been talking for two days. He sings and dances in the new Muppet film as well assigning in that Pirate Fairy film so we shall all find out when the videos hit you tube

    • Browniecakes says:

      Looking at fan photos from Australia, TH seems to LOVE meeting his fans. One school girl made him a crown he put on, another climbed on his back for a photo. Not surprised he sang HB to someone. I assume he’s going from Syndey to Seoul Thorsday. (See what I did there?)

      • Mary-Rose says:

        I see what you did there brownie! I’m not surprised he enjoyed meeting the fans. It will give him a natural adrenaline rush. I do believe he’s a workoholic judging from his schedule

  37. bets says:

    Cant we have articles on Tom Mison instead. Now there’s a talented actor and far more attractive and funny than this fool.

  38. lc says:

    I am considering a late night visit to the grocery because I can’t get chocolate cookies out of my mind now. Dammit Tom.

    Fly, Dragonfly King. Fly to all your deserved glory!

  40. MissThing says:

    Oh TommyAnnE… Sadly, despite everything yes I would still hit it. And I am ashamed.

  41. browniecakes says:

    Australia! And it is only the beginning.

    • Mary-Rose says:

      That is too funny PMSL ! TommyAnne is clearly loving and playing up to the attention . He looks right at home
