Tom Hiddleston, wigged out in character for ‘Crimson Peak’: would you hit it?


117380PCN_Crimson21

I would have loved to bring photos of Tom Hiddleton in character on Crimson Peak before now, but the photos from last week were exclusives and only a handful of sites had them. You can see some of them here and here. Thankfully, we just got some non-exclusive pics in overnight!! HUZZAH. Tommy was spotted in character in Toronto – after he finished filming, he signed autographs for fans too. His character looks like Edgar Allen Poe…?

Anyway, this is not the best or more exciting Tom Hiddleston story ever, but I’m sure it will be click-baity enough to tempt the Dragonflies. As you may remember, last year Tommy Hiddleston did the “Live Below The Line” challenge as part as his ambassadorship with UNICEF. Tom lived on £1 of food a day for five days, and he blogged about it and posted videos too. I liked him more for doing something to raise awareness of the issues, plus I just like seeing how a modern, first world actor can try to eat on £1 a day. To promote this year’s challenge, UNICEF released a new video (it’s new to me, but it could have been filmed last year) with Tommy talking about the difficulty of the challenge.

I love how he’s always reminding people of how tall he is. We get it, Tommy!! YOU ARE SUPER TALL. Lanky magnificent dragonfly bastard. This year’s Live Below the Line Challenge starts on Monday. I’m assuming Tom will not be doing the challenge again, as he’s working and probably needs to keep his strength up.

Also, here’s a link to a video that was released last week. I have no idea when this was done either, but Tommy will literally talk about Shakespeare anywhere, anytime, anyway.

    Charlie Hunnam looks way hotter imo.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Enjoy him. More Tom for the rest of us.

    • This dude does nothing for me. These photos…ugh, no.
      The skinny neck…the dorkiness.
      Nope. PASS.

      • LadySlippers says:

        Aren’t you too busy with Hardy to notice????

        😉

      • I was actually thinking about Hardy as I was writing that comment.
        I was thinking about how I generally refrain from criticizing people’s looks but after recalling all the snark thrown at Hardy on the last post, I decided to drop some frank nastiness about this dude’s appearance.
        Predictably, it only provided a fleeting moment of satisfaction immediately followed with feelings of guilt and regret.

        He’s cute enough, just not my bag.
        There.
        I feel better now.

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        Saucer of milk for The Original Kitten!

        Badum tish!

      • Intro Outro says:

        @TheOriginalKitten:

        I thought the comments on Hardy’s last post were a bit too much, too. Ppl can get carried away without actually meaning to be nasty. It just happens. Don’t let it spoil your day ^_~

      • LadySlippers says:

        Different strokes for different folks my dear.

        Oh.

        *blushes*

        Well that works for two reasons.

        😉

      • Nighty says:

        Humm.. the skinny neck… I’d bite it… hell yeah…. (influence from OLLA)

        *blushes*

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        OKitten,
        I hate when I do that. I said something mean about the name Otis given to this morning’s baby and all day this little voice has been whispering periodically…nice…attack a baby…maybe there’s a puppy you can kick since you’re so NICE…

      • @Goodnames. It NEVER makes me feel better. Ever.

        I was just mad because some of yesterday’s Hardy comments were making it seem like he’s a bridge troll and not the fine piece of ass that he is.

        But yeah, two wrongs don’t make a right, etc. etc.

      • Hiddles forever says:

        I like Hardy.. And Mark Strong.. And Hiddles.. And sometimes even Cumberbatch..

        Does that make me bad or just undecided?

        Btw, Tom with that hair is a no no… Pls stop with Loki hair already LOL

      • Nighty says:

        @Hiddles forever, that makes you a woman with good taste, that’s all..
        :)

  2. T.fanty says:

    Absolutely, I would. Assuming he stays awake in the hour it would take to get him out of all of those clothes.

    • Mimz says:

      Hahahha T.fanty!
      Thanks for this! It would take for everrrrrr to get him out of that.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Why waste time? Just unzip and go.

      • LadySlippers says:

        Oh Lilac,

        With his size, you can probably forgo zippers altogether and pull him out from one trouser leg. Less risk of injury from that Anaconda too.

        😜

      • Lilacflowers says:

        But then I would miss the fun of unzipping. Or maybe the costume has buttons instead of a zipper? Period clothing and all. In which case, I can just rip the buttons off.

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        I think I am going to have to stop coming to Hiddles’ posts. He is ruining me for all other (real) men! I think he is an utter b@st@rd for being so freaking close to perfect AND that there is only one of him.

        Cheeky dork…
        *stamps feet in total tanty mode that he isn’t the cardboard cutout hidden in the closet of the bedroom*

      • T.fanty says:

        I would suggest having at him with a pair of Miss Jane’s pinking shears, but those trousers are tight, and I worry that in my haste, I might have an accident that renders him worthless to me.

      • j.eyre says:

        Darn it – has anyone seen my pinking shears? I left them right here.

      • I Choose Me says:

        Exactly!

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Get those pinking shears away from him! I can rip the fly buttons off with my teeth.

      • Hiddles forever says:

        @Secrete squirrel

        I don’t have that problem. Husband is ruining it for me lol

        *quickly hides Hiddles portrait into the bedside cabinet*

    • I Choose Me says:

      Seeing him in that suit, I’m having a specific fantasy. Elegant dinner, the two of us dressed up to the nines and then I haul him into a broom closet and we go at it.

  3. Lark says:

    For some reason, I totally see Tom trying to make a play for Jessica Chastain. I would hit it still, awful wig and all. For some reason, the interview where he started reciting Shakespeare at ducks made him even more attractive to me

    • Secret Squirrel says:

      You know I spoke to those ducks afterwards and they were quite embarrassed at Tom’s recital. Turns out they are more Keats poetry fans… :)

      • Ppp12 says:

        Squirrel!! I don’t think I’ve seen you a lot in the last couple of posts. I missed your witty comments, u shexy shquirrel!!

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        I know. I’ve been looking around at the real world but decided I like this fake world of Tom and “the other guy with posh issues” as the only men in existence better!

      • LadySlippers says:

        Oh Squirrel, our Garden is simply sublime!

        **ETA**

        Tulip says hi!

        She says she will try to wrap up the Tulip Campaign soon and return to our Garden.

        Ain’t that grand?!???

      • Janeite says:

        Ducks in general tend to be Keats fans. Geese are another matter entirely. They become passionately violent in their love of Shakespeare.

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        @Lady S – Great to hear Tulip will be back amongst us soon. We will have to have a big shindig when all the gang gets together! Any man who owns a three piece suit is invited automatically! No women are invited *frowns at anyone planning on inviting a female*. Its not that I’m jealous mind you, it just that…. okay, I get jealous at anyone looking at TH or BC…

        @Janeite – To honk or not to honk. That is the question (for every goose!). I often think of those bumper stickers that say “Honk of your horny” and wonder if geese are in fact really REALLY desperate! But if they are Shakespeare lovers, then I guess they are more refined than a silly bumper sticker!

        Except for Gerry the Goose, down at the pond near the trap shoot gallery. I hear him trying to chat up the swans all the time, so I think the sticker applies to him!

      • Janeite says:

        Squirrel, I know what you mean about Gerry. I have to come out from under my rock sometimes to tell him to get his act together. I mean, the swans are all mated for life and whatnot and then along comes Gerry the interloper. Silly goose. Heh.

  4. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    You sucked me into the Cumbylove. So I’ve deliberately avoided Hiddles posts. Because, you know, I have stuff I need to do during the day. But, damn you! Yes, I’d hit it. Are you HAPPY?

    • LadySlippers says:

      Lmao Dahling. Really, you count your hobby of boinking the pool boys legitimate work?!?

      That is just SO adorable!

      😉

    • Nighty says:

      But you can love them both BC and TH.. I know I do… :)

      • Beth says:

        Loving BC is a full time job, but I’m trying to fit in some TH pro bono work on the side.

      • Darry says:

        I’m with Beth. BC is full-on, full-time, full…

        …uh…

        What was I saying?

        Oh yeah. You get THiddy dressed up like this or Loki, and I could maybe see my way to a threesome.

      • Maria of MD says:

        I like both of them. Why not? They’re both charming, intelligent and highly talented and I’d bet they’d be a lot of fun to just hang out with and chat.

    • Hiddles forever says:

      I am still undecided Goodnames… I keep lurking into all the posts concerning British actors and then let’s see who will be my favourite…
      Nah, I will keep them all

      *greedy minx*

  5. AG-UK says:

    I don’t like the hair colour but yes… love him.

  6. Shijel says:

    Looking at the costumed picture I just realised that he’s going to age very, very poorly.

  7. Lilacflowers says:

    This costume seems more like a footman from Downton Abbey than the darker Poe-like clothes of last week’s pictures, but yes, definitely would hit it

  8. j.eyre says:

    There is a possibility I would, yes.

    • LadySlippers says:

      Possibility???? Possibility???

      *snort*

      I think what you really mean is that there is a *possibility* that you’ll yank on your tether and pull him back to your lair at Thornfield. Clearly keeping rights of his pics has failed so you need to keep him on a shorter leash.

      Ladies, Miss Eyre is brutal. Her gentility is a mere ruse. Go find a new man to crush on as she ain’t sharing.

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        Now I am conflicted. I would scratch the eyes out of anyone trying to take Tommy away from me, but then Ms Eyre owns Thornfield which is where I reside in the garden. What to do? What to do?

        Oh bugger it, I can always find another tree to live in. Claws at dawn Ms Eyre!!

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        You can come live in my garden, SS. Sic her!

      • LadySlippers says:

        *whispers*

        Oh but Tommy Boy rushes out to our Garden, Squirrel, when Miss Eyre administers Mr Rochester (she can’t keep him a sex slave forever and not have Mr Rochester suspect).

        We Garden Creatures know who he loves best. Let’s just keep the illusion that Miss Eyre has control of him. Okay? Feel better?

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        SHARE Tom????? That’s like asking me to share chocolate, or share my oxygen… Not a good idea. However I concede that Miss Eyre has been very generous in letting us live in the garden (although she would probably have a fit if she saw what we have built under the fountain!) so I will let her have her games with the Tall Brit Boys Club members, but I get to show Mr Rochester the photos later…

    • j.eyre says:

      Oh… oh ladies. You all missed the Hiddle Games from days gone by. I may be the most incompetent warrior to ever set foot the arena but the one thing you can always be assured of is that when it comes to Tommyanna, I cannot be deterred. If you want a proper tsking, I shall hand them out gladly over this man. Consider my knitting needles drawn and sharpened, dearests.

      Tommyanna is the reason for Thornfield.

      • T.fanty says:

        You tsk away. And while doing so, try to ignore the huffing and puffing sound coming from the buttery.

      • j.eyre says:

        The odd part is, I am more upset that you are in my buttery – you know that is my special place.

        You little scamp – I am absolutely defenseless. I can’t hear a thing currently as my ear is pressed up against this amazing ginger’s chest and his strong arms have me secured to his person. It was the oddest thing, he was dressed as a pirate when he walked in but after I removed all that nonsense, he was dressed as Mr. Rochester – what’s a girl to do?

      • T.Fanty says:

        *Drops Tommyanne*
        *which was very easy to do as he’s slippery from being covered in butter*
        *shakes fist at Miss Jane*

        Dagnabbit, woman!!

        Ooo. Compromise. Meet you in the drawing room? I’ll bring the PhanTom of the Opera and the rest of the strawberry jam, and you bring Pirate Toby with his cutlass fully unsheathed. Deal?

      • j.eyre says:

        As if you have to ask…

        Alright, we will draw swords at dusk. And that needs no clarification.

        btw – I love PhanTom possibly even more than Penny Dreadful. I do worry about it invoking EsCon and her Butt-ler Phantom fantasies. Should we invite her and the Prince Port-O-Potty before she rides in with her ruler?

      • T.Fanty says:

        Sigh. Okay, but if he makes me put on a Russian accent and start bartering for favors, I’m taking my Pirate Prince and going to bed.

        Ooo. Just realized that if I’m also willing to dress up as a fairy, I might get two pirates for the price of one!

      • T.Fanty says:

        Annnnnnnnd, I just watched the “Shakespeare is a Labyrinth” video. Unless I’m allowed to slap him a little, for being a) very pretentious with all of his thoughtful pauses, and b) the Guardian at the Gates, he’s all yours.

        (although I do give him MASSIVE credit for his employment of the word “befuddling”)

      • j.eyre says:

        That is the weirdest thing you have ever said. Uhm – no you may not slap him, now give him back. Is it really that easy?

        Or are we in one of our sharing moods and I actually want to split Tommyanna’s time between you and me? As for the slapping, why would there be no slapping? And when did we need reasons?

        I love Tommyanna’s pretension so I am doubling down.

        Russian accents and bartering does not bring forth images of Butt-ler. Careful, Fanty – you’re letting your Cumberbatch show…

      • T.Fanty says:

        You should want me to slap him, for the following reasons;
        1 – his cheeks will be all pink and flush, in a most fetching manner (I’ll slap both sides, to keep him symmetrical)
        2 – you can reap the benefits of the little sassy starfish when he gets all uppity and wants to vicariously enact all of the ways he would assert his dominance over me (if I would let him).

      • EscapedConvent says:

        I’m not sure that this will post in the right place, but excuse me, my ladies—- what the hell is going on here?

        The discussion re: what Tommy is wearing can be settled thus—this sort-of Poe thing is his evening wear. During the day he wears his housecoat & shower cap over his curlers to work in the Thornfield lavender fields. Miss Jane uses a lot of lavender oil for some reason. When she needs him back at the main house, she sends a Pomeranian over to yank at his hem. Her year of training Tommy has gone very well—look at him smiling!

        Oh, & re: the Butt-ler? Thanks, but he would have to be in Dracula 2000 mode. & I wouldn’t want to upset Miss M.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Miss Jane is a determined little minx. If she decides not to share her Tommy, & puts her delicate silk-slippered foot down, there’s really not much anyone can do but try again when she’s in the attic & out of the way.

      • T.Fanty says:

        “determined little minx” – that’s not quite the terminology I would use.

      • LadySlippers says:

        Ummm there are to be NO Pomeranians out of the house. Butterflies work perfectly well as messengers out in the Garden or the fields.

        And you best keep up the story that Tommy is *working* and nothing else or I shall be very cross with you EsCon.

      • j.eyre says:

        Re: slapping – when have I ever discouraged slapping? And you are not doing it correctly. Here, let me show you again – I just need to turn my ring around.

        EsCon – now see, Fanty is just starting trouble again. I clearly said I would participate in a sword swapping this evening – how am I not sharing? I have not pulled my knitting needles out once in this entire thread. I should be commended for my decorum and pristine deportment.

        LadySlippers – “there are to be NO Pomeranians out of the house.” Did I read that properly? You mean to deny the Poms their lavender fields? Listen darling, I know you are still cross about that little territory marking incident with Muttus Operendi but lets let bygones be bygones, shall we? He is awfully sorry… well, no, he couldn’t care less, but he could not live without his afternoon romps. I mean, whom among us could, really?

        However, I saw your suggestion above about my delusional state and now I see this little missive, so let’s look at this statement once more…

        Wait a moment, please *picks up clippers* read me that sentence again, would you?

  9. Joann says:

    I would hit that everyday and twice on Sundays. Totally sexy and dapper. The look is a nice contrast to the puppy eyed blonde cutie in the video.

  10. blue marie says:

    Nah I don’t think so.. He always reminds me of a deranged bunny when he smiles.

    • j.eyre says:

      Oh so what, now you have a thing against mentally imbalanced small woodland creatures? Honestly, Blue.

    • TommyAnnE says:

      Bunny is not mentally imbalanced! She just misses me. Sleeping on my special velvet pillow is just not making up for anything.

      Do you think she might leave me…? *tears*

      • LadySlippers says:

        *soothingly*

        Never, Tommy, never. You made her REAL and she is forever grateful. Please though, take some longer weekends so you two can reaffirm your deep and lasting bond.

        *pats Tommy*

      • blue marie says:

        I dunno but you might need to “hug her and squeeze her and call her George” to show you still care.

      • LadySlippers says:

        Shhhhhhh Blue!!!

        *whispers*

        He can’t find out. You’ve got to lie to Tommy!!!

    • Kiddo says:

      That is hilarious. I’m not seeing deranged bunny, but OMG, I love that description.

      • blue marie says:

        thanks, I can’t figure out if it’s the nose or smile that throw’s me off.

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        Pretty much everyone in Hollywood develops a default face for the cameras, a certain safe expression which they know looks good and will please the fans, and Hiddles is no exception.

        Some people have said this is all about branding and is very deliberate (“Tom, our focus group indicates that people like you dorky and happy, so let’s see which face says ‘dorky and happy’…”) but I think it is entirely unconscious. What would you do if you did a tour and were being photographed constantly? It would start to become automatic.

        So for me, the smiley face in the second picture looks like Tom putting on his default Being-Photographed-Face. The first shot looks more like a real facial expression, which for me is much more attractive.

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        @Miss Jupitero – Whilst I appreciate your analogy of the Hollywood “go for photo” face, I just want to say…
        F*ck it. I don’t care if he is smiling or frowning or unconscious due to being hit on the head by a door, I want it all and I want it NOW!

      • Maria of MD says:

        Deranged bunnies and otters. Love this site. Love you guys.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      This is what a deranged bunny looks like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRV2mRDt1KM Tom does not look like a deranged bunny.

  11. Beth says:

    I’d hit it because I know that’s not what he really looks like. Why do directors continue to insist on making him look like such a greaseball?

  12. kaisei says:

    I think the title is officially Haunted Peak now.
    http://37.media.tumblr.com/efce238a05c3019d020f35186f534db5/tumblr_n4ixndU8xC1qeuzrdo2_1280.jpg

    And yes, the video is from last year because no scar on his forehead.
    That being said, he looks better with his natural hair colour. Somehow this costume makes him look older.

    • 'P'enny says:

      no, Haunted peak is its on-set pseudonym, in theatres it will be Crimson Peak. a lot of films have different production names, Blue Harvest was Star Wars, Thor Dark World was Thorsday Mourning and so on

      • kaisei says:

        Oh, I thought it was the other way around, like Crimson Peak was the temp name and Haunted Peak the official.

    • T.fanty says:

      Haunted peak is a terrible title.

      Plus, it just makes me think”I’d like to haunt his peak.”

      • j.eyre says:

        Not too far a reach for you, really, Fanty.

        Haunted Peak is too localized for me “okay, you can go in the vale and that mesa might make for a nice picnic spot but don’t go to the peak , its haunted you know.” I mean, its not scary if all you have to do is avoid the summit.

        Also, and this might be exclusive to me, but I think of whipped egg whites. “Hey honey? If the pie filling in? I have whipped the eggs into soft peaks and OH MY GAWD – ITS THE FACE OF ASAG!”

      • Nighty says:

        lol T.fanty… “I’d like to haunt his peak”… Which peak?????

        *whistles innocently trying to disguise naughty smile*

      • T.fanty says:

        Now I want a picnic at haunted peak. And my iPhone is correcting that as Haunted Leak, which is a movie I would like to see.

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        Haunted Peak sounds like a “Scooby Doo and the Mystery Van Gang” plot location…

        “Ruh-Roh Raggy…”
        “Like I know Scoob. Its Haunted Peak so I think it might be a peak that is haunted”

        @T.fanty – Surely Haunted Leek would be more interesting? When possessed vegetables attack…ARRRGH!!

      • T.Fanty says:

        Haunted Leek is my new favorite movie. I like the Triffid-like images evoked. Maybe, if we can convince him that it is based on a true story, we can get Cumby to do it. I could see him in a giant leek costume, sneaking up on Tom, who sits on a park bench, quietly reading and pondering the nature of the universe.

        What’s actually weird is that now I’m thinking about it, I really could. A giant Leek that curses a lot and has to stop attacking people when he needs a cigarette.

      • Nighty says:

        Oh poor Benny.. not as a leek…. There’s gotta be a better veggie for him, He deserves better… And he doesn’t attack anyone for a smoke, does he? Well, if he needs one… I can give him a cigarette… No need to attack Benny…

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        Sean Bean as “Broccoli Boy”?? You know he is going to get steamed in the first few minutes of the film!

        Don’t forget the jorts. Ben in a Leek costume with jorts. Oh the horror…

      • j.eyre says:

        I like Broccoli Boy but may I throw Crisp Asparagus the Elder in the mix for Mr. Bean? When his time comes, he just gets snapped in twain. It seems with Sean that we all know its coming but when it comes, its swift and he usually loses a body part.

        No! The Honorable Kebob because he ALWAYS gets skewered.

        Tom just won the Emmy in the supporting category for his part in Haunted Leek because the fact that he could do anything quietly blinded the voters.

        I am also very much looking forward to when Rupert Everett joins the series as a regular in the role of Perverse Green Onion, the Leek’s greatest foil. He jumps out from behind the newspaper rack at the local coffee house and tells the Leek what’s wrong with his ensemble.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Although “haunted” infers that the leek is hauntee, not haunter. So maybe I’ll grow out my leg hair and eyebrows, wear some hemp, and chase them around wielding a vegan cookbook and a promise to use the non-edible bits as a homemade poultice.

      • Isadora says:

        Oh my god…. I want to see Haunted Leek so bad! And we need to get Tom Hardy in it as well, for Sixer. Maybe as a buff turnip, I think turnips are rather bloke-ish – very British but still down-to-earth (please applaud the pun).

    • joe spider says:

      For those saying he is not ageing well, I think it is the pale make up. He looked mighty fine a Coriolanus to me and that was only a couple of months ago:

      http://www.pinterest.com/pin/483222234990482287/

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        I think he is ageing beautifully myself, but must add that the link you have provided is A) hot! and B) the promotional poster for Coriolanus, so potentially “touched up” and smoothed out a bit.

      • Janeite says:

        I think he is very striking looking in the pale makeup, dark clothes, and black hair. I like that look on him. It’s sinister and handsome and quite appealing, in my humble opinion.

        Joe Spider: generally speaking fair skinned people generally age more quickly than people of color or those who have more melanin in their skin. In Tom’s case he’s both fair skinned and very thin. When he’s working hard (e.g. the world tour for Thor 2) he drops weight and starts looking haggard. Who wouldn’t? He put on some muscle for Coriolanus and it suited him very well. Now it looks as though he’s back to his skinny self. All of that being said, Tom has aged noticeably in the last four years since his Thor and Wallender days. No more babyface. And his hairline is definitely in retreat. Mind you he still looks good, but he needs to keep his weight up. Thin people show their age more in their faces, even if their bodies are fit and firm.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        He was absolutely stunning at the Olivier Awards earlier this month.

      • Isadora says:

        Julianne Moore and Tilda Swinton never heard of the “fair people age faster” rule. ;-)

        And yes, he needs to watch his weight. I promise, I’ll feed him properly once we are married.

      • jammypants says:

        He did get the honor of best dressed from GQ, the fine lad ;)

        He most certainly did, particularly when you bear in mind he had just flown across the Atlantic to attend. He didn’t look any older than he is to me. I actually think he was a tiny bit podgy in Wallander.

        He also graciously nodded agreement and applauded hard when they announced Kinnear had won best actor.

    • icerose says:

      the video is from a film about Shakespeare he took part in along with many other Actors-its worth watching if you like hearing actors/directors or any one discussing the bard.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Is the whole film itself (Muse of Fire) available? I haven’t been able to find it.

  13. Out of the loop says:

    Forgive my sleepy soul, I tried to find out what this particular dragonfly is… Is it a movie or a show? Why do so many people talk about it? My foggy internet just gave me spiritual meanings which made no sense for an actor. I promise I am not kidding. Too much cold and flu medicine perhaps, though I’d love a kind answer…

    • Nighty says:

      You mean why his fans call themselves dragonfly? There’s a photoshoot of him wearing a coat with embroidered dragonflies…

        Damn, I’ve never seen that picture before. Wow.

      • Nighty says:

        I know Beth, that pic is something out of the ordinary… so great in that first one…

        *dreaming about dragonflies*

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        I don’t think he had any idea what he was about to unleash when he agreed to wear/be photographed in that jacket.

      • Nighty says:

        Yeah Secret Squirrel , if he only knew he would have worn matching trousers too…
        :P

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        Thank goodness it wasn’t something ridiculous like ladybugs! At least Dragonflies have the word “dragon” in it to make it seem a tad tougher!

        Only a tad mind you!

      • Nighty says:

        Actually, I do like the jacket… and he looks hot on that pic, thouh I’d put less dragonflies on it… maybe just half of them….
        Well, if t had ladybugs it would be somewhat complicated… Lady Tom?

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        Hiddlebug!

        (I vote for the next new species of bug to be discovered be named Hiddlebug because it sounds so cool!).

        *David Attenborough’s voice*
        “Here we have the Hiddlebug, famous for its mating ritual dance moves and oversized sexual organs. The Hiddlebug also has chameleonic abilities and can chirp cheerily under even the most trying of conditions”

      • Nighty says:

        I was eating a yoghurt and chocked on it by your description of Hiddlebug…. darn SS… “mating ritual dance moves and oversized sexual organs”

      • LadySlippers says:

        LadyTom or LadyBug indeed.

        I like this ladies, oh I so do.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Nighty, matching trousers would have been a bit of gilding the lily. There seems to be enough going on there without drawing more attention.

      • Nighty says:

        But, a dragonfly over the zip??? When it opened (I would do it for him of course) it would look like the wings were fluttering….

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Oh my.

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        There is already a dragon in his fly!

        He doesn’t need any more ornamentation in the trouser department!!

      • allons-y alonso says:

        Hello my lovely ladies.

        @Secret Squirrel – no, not just yet. I’ll be there by the end of Sepetember.
        @j.eyre – I love me some Poe.

    • j.eyre says:

      Poe was really at his best when he scrawled those lines wasn’t he, Allons-y?

    • Isadora says:

      Looking at these pics of Hiddles as Sir Thomas Sharpe you can quote a lot of Poe. For example:
      “Strange is thy pallor! strange thy dress! Strange, above all, thy length of tress, And this all solemn silentness!”

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Thanks, Isadora. I think tomorrow I will spend lunchtime sitting near Poe’s birthplace, staring at a picture of Tom in the dark costume, and reciting that for a full hour.

  17. Miss Jupitero says:

    Sorry no, he looks like a Downton Abbey reject in this photo. There is nothing hot or swashbuckling about that wig. He really needs to get far away from these black wig Loki roles. It’s a libido killer.

    I have heard his bunny rest on special silk cushions.

    • 'P'enny says:

      miss Jupitero, it’s no libido killer for me at all! It’s doing a lot for me, preferred him all in black. this outfit is for.., well the clue is on some of the pics.

    • jammypants says:

      I have heard from the neighbors the cushions are stuffed with perfumed peacock feathers.

  18. GeeMoney says:

    His outfit in the first picture looks like he going to a masquerade ball, lol.

    And one of the things I like about Tom the most is how tall he is… 6’2″ is almost like, the perfect height (for me, at least)… so I would throw him some, just because of that.

    • LadySlippers says:

      The height IS perfect.

      Unless he annoys our Virgo sensibilities and we chuck him out of bed. But hopefully those show up after we’ve had our fill.

      😉

    • Secret Squirrel says:

      Oh thank god. I thought I was the only one that found height a sexy quality! I’m tall for a girl (squirrel, I mean squirrel…) so having someone over 6 foot is a definite bonus!

      • windy says:

        count me in Secret Squirrel! I love a guy who’s tall, especially one that is over 6 foot…. And these photos look good to me… heck, nearly every photo of Tommy looks good to me. Just when I was trying my best to be faithful to “the other guy”, and it was succeeding well too esp when he was in our hemisphere the past few weeks….

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        *hugs to Windy*

        Yes, it has been hard to ignore the “other” one in the southern hemisphere. I’m most put out that he didn’t come to look at my special rock as invited. Okay, so I could have been planning on hitting him over the head with said rock, but surely he couldn’t have known that, right??

        Anywho I must admit that before Tom, I was not into lean guys (or blondes, or blue eyes) but then I saw the beauty of both above mentioned chaps and I was converted! The fact they both have senses of humor and sweet personalities (be it real or just for show – meh) is just icing on the cake.

      • windy says:

        Awww…he didn’t take on your invitation as well? He also ignored mine to visit my special roof garden…. I was all ready to rent a Jag to pick him up all the way from across the border and drive him or rather get someone to drive him and me to my roof garden… It would take several hours even though the Jag is considered speedy, but he wouldn’t be bored at all with my wonderful company in the back seat. Alas, that invite was either lost at sea or he completely ignored it. i even threw in an offer to wash his favourite denim shirt, or if he preferred, to coat it with the febreeze that his dear friend Tommy had been using on the famous Coriolanus black sweaters.

        I am the same as you….I wasn’t really into blondes. And admittedly, it was when I saw the two in their dark hair that made me attracted to them at the beginning haha :D

      • Lilacflowers says:

        I’m short and I am petrified of heights so having somebody tall around for things like changing the lightbulbs in my 10 foot high ceilings or changing the batteries in the smoke detector or reaching stuff on the top shelf in my kitchen is essential.

      Masquerade ball? Maybe with a password? I like that…. “Fidelio” Oh yes…

  19. viennacalling says:

    aaawww, thanks for this post – I’ve had a bunch of shitty days at work and really needed some hiddles to keep me going ;-)
    I’d hit it like a house on fire…
    to me, there’s only one guy who wears period clothing even better – trent reznor, way back in 1997 ;-)
    as shown in exhibit a: http://vimeo.com/3612941

    • Åsa says:

      I don’t know you, but I love you for posting that video <3

    • Secret Squirrel says:

      Hmmm, now Tom looks like the pretty version of period costume and Trent is the “I’m going to hurt you and you are going to like it” version.

      I’m still Team Tommy though, but I could have that video playing in the background of my love nest to “set the mood”!!!

      • viennacalling says:

        unfortunately, it’s not the 90s anymore ^^
        and trent has become a family man, that usually kills the hot for me, so…
        - so I’ll be off fantasizing about hiddles not only being pretty, but a little bit kinky :-)

    • Abby_J says:

      Oh Trent Rezner…….That man, that voice, that music, that video. He is perfect. *Runs off to iTunes for a NIN marathon of music.

      Wonder if Tom likes NIN? I’m guessing not much. His…errr…..dance style seems more inclined elsewhere.

      • viennacalling says:

        enjoy the NIN marathon!
        I’m sooo looking forward to seeing them live again in june!

        I’ve actually never wondered about the kind of music hiddles likes, but OLLA has a great, interesting OST… I just figure he very well could be into rock because of the solid guitar pr0n the movie provides in the beginning ;-) <3

      • Abby_J says:

        viennacalling,

        OLLA opens here the first weekend in May, so I am looking forward to seeing it!

        He was only like 11-13 when NIN was getting popular. Doesn’t mean he couldn’t like our dear Trent, but I bet he likes dance music more. I imagine him dancing to the Backstreet Boys and Nsync. Hahaha! Apparently he is into Will Smith, from his rapping of Miami in a YouTube video that I saw!

        I almost had to let my love of Tom go completely after watching his interview with Zachary Levi on NerdHQ. He referred to 1980′s music as “TERRIBLE.” He corrected himself, after the crowd moaned and Zachary gave him a stern talking to, but the damage was almost done. Luckily for him, I saw Henry V soon after, and decided that he just needed to be educated in awesome 1980′s music. :)

      • Sighs says:

        He doesn’t like 80′s music??? This is ruining my slow dance at the prom Hiddles fantasy. And my after the prom Hiddles fantasy. Ugh. Maybe he needs a magical Devo hat.

      • Abby_J says:

        Sighs,

        Well, it was one comment, and from the full quote, I think he was referring to hair bands, but still, to use terrible and 80′s music in the same sentence should be a crime.

        Video here:

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLX-tdqEjUg

        The question is about Midnight in Paris, and starts about 37:35. He does mention Duran Duran, but I couldn’t understand the second one he says.

        He has quoted The Cure before on Twitter, but it is always Friday I’m in Love. makes me wonder if he actually knows any other music by them. I’m thinking Cumby might be the bigger Cure fan, but I have no actual evidence of this. More my imagination. I have a really good imagination. Haha!

      • viennacalling says:

        abby_j
        *damnit* I think I felt something inside of me die after reading your post… I have only seen parts of the nerdHQ interview – apparently not that particular part ^^
        I was watching “the rock show” with mr. viennacalling yesterday night and GAWD, music nowadays really does suck in comparison :-(

      • Intro Outro says:

        LOL i’m afraid i’m with Hiddles on 80′s music, pls don’t throw eggs or tomatoes! XDD It was a pretty weird period in music, in particular for 70′s rock bands just discovering electronic instruments but not being able yet to harmoniously incorporate them into their music. It was also the time when pop-music as we know it today was born – which, strictly speaking, is not too much of an asset. IMO IMO IMO XDDDD *dodges eggs*

        Re: NIN: I love NIN and i’m the same age as Hiddles ;) My first big love in music were The Beatles and Pink Floyd – all long gone by the time i started getting into rock music around 1993-1995. So, it doesn’t really matter when you were born, you know ^_^

      • Abby_J says:

        Intro Outro,

        Now, in this talk of 70′s rock bands and electronic music discussion, you wouldn’t be including Rush, the greatest band to ever grace a stage now would you? :)

        Their use of electronic instruments was perfect in every way, even if it did get used as an excuse for those snobby and misguided folks at Rolling Stone to keep him out of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame until last year. I can chalk your dislike of 80′s music up to a misguided youth, but those eggs might have to come out if you bad mouthed Rush. Hehe!

        BTW…Rush also started recording before I was born, so I understand liking bands that are ‘older than you.’

        That said, I still say Hiddles was an Nsync fan. I mean he practically looked like Justin Timberlake when he was younger.

      • Abby_J says:

        viennacalling,

        An appreciation of the 1980′s can be taught. We will just have to get started on that. He mentioned Duran Duran. That is a start. Maybe move on to Wham, since he likes to dance. We can move on to REM, The Cure and Prince. Afterward, we can tackle the good Rock/Metal.

        I imagine he spent a lot of time dancing in his room to Michael Jackson, so we can skip that particular lesson.

      • Intro Outro says:

        @Abby_J:

        *side-eyes you and slooowly gets out of the line of fire* ;3

        Seriously speaking though, Rush are cool ^_^ There are of course a number of great artists that belong to 1980′s. If i had to name a few favs on the spot, i’d go for Depeche Mode first of all, then Kate Bush and Dire Straights ^_^ So i’m not hopeless! But i mean from the POV of someone who really loves 1970 prog rock and art rock, 1980′s were a pretty controversial period. So his reaction to 1980′s music kinda makes me wonder whether Hiddles likes classic rock.

        Re: TH’s music preferences: I am not a Hiddles connoisseur but i remember he mentioned Holst in one of his interviews. I think it was about Coriolanus.

      • jammypants says:

        He mentioned Radiohead, Pulp, U2, Rolling Stones, The Prodigy, Jimi Hendrix, Sigur Ros, Muse, Will Smith, Shakira, The Temptations, The Cure, M83, Hans Zimmer, Bon Iver, Public Enemy, and many more. Seems pretty varied. I wouldn’t put it past him if he also liked the Spice Girls.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        There was some really good music in the 1980s and some really horrific music in the 1980s and God only knows what his parents were listening to during his childhood. Jarmusch was convinced he wouldn’t get any of his music references when he interviewed him for OLLA and was surprised that he did.

      • jammypants says:

        The one thing that Trent had against him was his height. I was so in love with him, then learned brutally that he was only 5’6”. He’s so tiny! The way he looked and sounded, I thought he’d be Tom’s height. I got over it eventually.

      • Isadora says:

        Tom also mentioned Bob Dylan, Adele and Mumford & Sons. I’d say he has a pretty average music taste and listens to quite a lot of different (and mostly rather popular) stuff.

        And I’d bet his favourite boygroup wasn’t Nsync, but Take That. ;-)

        @viennacalling: the OLLA soundtrack is divine, but it’s 100% Jarmusch. As well as the guitar porn. Tom plays a bit guitar (Dylan and stuff), but he’s more of a piano guy, he said.

        As to 80s music: Of course I love it, but I understand everyone who doesn’t haha. I even like the hair bands. And Falco. But seriously, bands like Bauhaus or esp. Kraftwerk (who both started in the 70s but made 80s music) were real artists (Kraftwerk’s live version of “Radioactivity” gets me every single time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0EBTn_3DBYo esp. after Fukushima). So I guess he just meant 80s radio music which WAS pretty awful at times.

        And NIN is one of those bands I never got warm with. No fascination for me whatsoever. :/

      • Intro Outro says:

        OMG how did i spell Dire Straits yesterday??? *mortified* I blame it all on leather gauntlets and pale complexions that were not letting me think STRAIGHT lol

        @Isadora:

        I agree about diversity and general averageness of his music tastes. But at least they’re not underwhelming ;P Also, imo Kraftwerk and Bauhaus were pretty ahead of their times. Awesome bands! And you’re probably right about him referring mainly to radio music being terrible, and i think this holds true about 90′s and 00′s and 10′s, too. One of the reasons why i eliminated music radio from my life lol.

      • joe spider says:

        Just to make you jealous, I saw it in February on first release day in the UK. Enjoyed it surprisingly much as it isn’t my normal type of film. I won’t say any more, because I don;t want to spoil it for you.

    • Secret Squirrel says:

      • T.Fanty says:

        Ah. In my defense, I haven’t seen the youtube one (because otherwise, I would have TOTALLY been able to distinguish between the languages, apparently).

      • Intro Outro says:

        Naturally! Korean chars are like so many twisted little human figures with big oval heads doing weird things. You won’t see big oval heads in Japanese writing. That’s a BIG difference 8D

      • LadySlippers says:

        Korean looks totally different.

        Straight up Kanji is hard unless they throw in Hiragana or Katakana to help me distinguish between Chinese and Japanese.

  25. aquarius64 says:

    This will be a test to see if Hiddleston can put butts in movie theater seats outside of Marvel. He’s the lead in this film, and a dark character. If he turns out to be Loki in period costume critics will have a field day.

    • 'P'enny says:

      This character won’t be anything like Loki, for starters there no dumb male, can’t act, blonde actor to play off and throw snide one liners at…. eheeheheheee [sorry Charlie - I do think your cute] :-D

      Actually for being the lead, he is in ensemble so it’s a good safety net I think the eyes will really be on the girls. the story is based around Mia’s character. It will be interesting once it’s all been edited which characters get the most screen time.

    • Intro Outro says:

      I was afraid his Adam would be a 70′s version of Loki. Nowhere near. Hopefully TH and GDT will know better than to make the mistake you’re talking about. They’re both intelligent and nuanced professionals.

      But if they do, then indeed critics will rip them both apart lol. And i won’t blame them ;3

      • 'P'enny says:

        @Into Outro

        To be honest, Hiddles has amazing range – but I fear the studio will put pressure on, even if Del Toro and Hiddles won’t.

        The character sounds very charming and predatory, and since we havnt seen Loki turn it on with girls [except that one scene in Thor2] it may just save him the comparisons. Oh, and we don’t know whether he will have a sarcy humour and put downs of his main Charlie competitor? that may also bring in the comparisons.

      • Intro Outro says:

        @’P'enny:

        I hear you! I agree that there might be parallels, however i think it’s still possible to be creative. Also agreed that the romantic aspect might just become his lifeline in case if producers want too much Loki ;)

        And in the light of our convo, i’m starting to wish that ppl stopped comparing Sharpe to Loki. Might not do that much good in the end =/

      • jammypants says:

        yea I was expecting the same ole, but Adam was very different. It made me really appreciate him as an actor. He can do camp and subtle.

      • Intro Outro says:

        You know, ladies, now that i’m thinking about it, even if on the surface Sharpe and Loki seem to have a lot in common – if our guesses are right, of course – Hiddles can still deliver a very different performance. Loki is more openly psychotic and unbalanced, he basically revels in his imbalance. A full-blown trickster who likes showing off. And is maximum PG-13 rated 8D Sharpe, as it seems, is first of all a sinister type of guy who’s hiding a BIG SECRET. He’s probably potentially more ruthless, dangerous and cruel. Different accents here and they can be played out very artfully. Hiddles can pull that off imo.

      • 'p'enny says:

        @Intro

        totally.

        Plus, Tom actually acted out three different Loki’s, under Branagh, Whedon and Taylor direction, all three of them had way too much fun with the character.

      • Intro Outro says:

        @’p'enny:

        Well-put! My least fav Loki is probably Whedon’s. Imo he’s much closer to a generic villain in Avengers than in either of Thors. I understand that the storyline needed *that* Loki but still.

      • Isadora says:

        I think Sharpe is going to be scary (I mean, it IS going to be a horror movie) – and while Loki is unbalanced and manipulative he’s not esp. scary to me. Ok, I might not be the best person to judge because Loki makes more sense to me than he probably should (except maybe taking over earth because it’s more trouble than it’s worth. And who would like to rule puny humans anyway.)

        However right at the moment it looks to me as if Sharpe won’t be period Loki, thankfully.

      • Intro Outro says:

        @Isadora:

        “Ok, I might not be the best person to judge because Loki makes more sense to me than he probably should”

        That’s exactly what i was thinking throughout most of Thor. That, and how most of other characters irritated the hell out of me xD

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Intro Outro, glad I’m not alone in that. I’ve sat through both Thor movies wondering why nobody in Asgard realized that Odin was not too bright and really bad to people, including members of his own family.

      • Intro Outro says:

        @Lilacflowers, during Thor 1 i was like: “Wut, this bratty blond dude is gonna be ruling Nine Realms??” “WHAT did Odin just say?? Both born to rule but only one will become a king?? Does he understand what he’s just done???” “WHY did they have to cast Portman?? There’s zero chemistry between Thor and Jane!” “Yeah Odin, that’s EXACTLY what you say to a completely demoralised person if you want that person to hold on” *HEADDESK*

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Who is doing this “test?” Hiddleston isn’t the only person in this movie. It is really an ensemble piece.

    • RPG says:

      Mia is the lead in CP, not Tom.

      Your spying skills are not to be desired!! We were all relying on you for the inside goss!! We might have to ask for a refund for the Canadian Mountie Astronaut Moose costume. Can’t understand why it didn’t blend in out on the streets. Aren’t all Canadians Mountie Astronaut Moose??

      • Hello Kitty says:

        I feel so ashamed! Sadly the spy costumes are non-refundable. Guess I’m a Mountie Moose for Halloween.

        But I’m still going to skulk around the downtown hotels and live-tweet Hiddles movements if I see him. Stars love when fans do that, right?

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        Oh yes, stars love being stalked regardless of what they tell us. All the better if you can also shout out that you love him/her and take a gazillion photos from about a foot away with your flash set on “mother of god I can’t see anything except the core of the sun” brightness…

    • MollyMaxwell says:

      They seem to be shooting a lot around Casa Loma. Skulk around there and report back on your findings.

    I swear to sweet lord if he complains ONCE MORE about directors putting him in black wigs, I’ll find him out and kick his cute lttle, tight bottom!! Loki in Victorian Midgard- I can already see a hundred fanfics going up overnight. That being said, yes I’d hit it…HARD! But only if he wears the black silk/leather waistcoat, pocketwatch and black gloves combi from the other day’s pics.

    • 'P'enny says:

      @Ppp12

      Hiddles doesn’t moan. But, there will no doubt been eye-rolling going on and behind the scenes ribbing. I wouldn’t want to be in friends’ shoes if they dared make a text- joke at him these last few days.

      And besides each black wig has been very different. It was his own hair, in thor 1, straightened to an inch of its life.

      And for the record, leave his tight bottom alone, no bruising his peach.

      The guy has to make a living, and btw he can’t really turn the look down especially as it was set in stone in before he was hired, when Benny decided he couldn’t take the role.

      • Ppp12 says:

        @penny, i am sure in an interview he joked how he constantly finds himself in black wigs. I agree he wasn’t moaning about it coz we all know our Hiddles is no spoilt Hollywood brat. Oh and that bottom is surely getting some treatment from me *sniggers* about different hair, this actually looks like the hair we see in post thor 1/during avengers shooting when his hair was dyed black and he wore a weave over it. It was like this black and wavy at the back. I’m digging his slightly longee blonde curls though.

        About the pics with the fans, is it his trusted blue t shirt? He wore that for coriolanus rehearsals and in his return to cranford days eons ago. I love how he’s completely like a regular guy wearing the same clothes for years. Bless you, Hiddy!!

      • Isadora says:

        Yes, he’s wearing three of his five pieces of clothing: Coriolanus rehearsal shirt, black Armani cardigan/sweater, quilted jacket.

      • Intro Outro says:

        Well. Thanks to all recent fan squees about how nice he smells, at least we know he properly washes these five pieces ;)

  28. 'P'enny says:

    Shakespeare was 450 years old yesterday, and Jim Beaver on the Crimson Peak set talk about celebrating in conversation with Hiddles. Jim appears to have developed a man-crush on Tom and praising his Shakespearean acting in the Hollow Crown. It’s been nice to read, and it’s on Jim’s Facebook page.

    It’s bad enough having to bat you guys away from Hiddles, I know have to compete with men-crushes!!! GRRR

    I really thought Tom would post something about Shakespeare, but the reports from fans it he is working dawn till dusk at Casa Lomo. Bet he can’t wait to finish this film and collapse [hopefully in my arms]

    • Hello Kitty says:

      Casa Lomo? Off to stalk! BRB.

      • 'P'enny says:

        Hello Kitty, you really need to get on Twitter, darling, and see the fan gossip. It’s his evil horror castle in the film. now run!!!!! After shooting is the time they are hanging at the school gate to do fan photos and signings.

      • Hello Kitty says:

        Did the fans create a hashtag for easy searching? #HiddlesInTO? #LokiInTO? #StalkTheHiddles?

      • Sighs says:

        Get it, girl! And none of this vague crap. We want details. Down to the dragonfly. ;)

      • 'P'enny says:

        @hellokitty wish they did create a hashtag, but the fan base has come down hard on stalking. I don’t think they would dare. there are a couple of twitter pages, Crimsonpeaknews and Neighbordeltoro worth checking out. unofficial. But, they’ve started to be drip-fed stuff from extras and fans and production staff.

        as ‘sighs’ says get the details right down to Victorian dragon fly . I wish he was in proper breeches and boots. The trousers look slightly weird.

      • Hello Kitty says:

        @Sighs: have we named the Hiddlesdong the “Dragonfly”?!?! ROFL (although Hiddlesdong doesn’t roll off the tongue as easily as Fassdong, Hammdong, or Hammaconda)

        That reminds me of an Enty blind where Hiddles is thought to be the answer.
        http://www.agcwebpages.com/BLINDITEMS/2014/APRIL.html
        Go to no.175

      • Sighs says:

        @hellokitty – Yes! It shall now be referred to as “Dragonfly”! There are so many lovely puns going on with that.
        The dong has been coined.
        You’re welcome, Tom.

        On a related note, a dragonfly once buzzed me on the ear. It was quite a memorable experience. Do with that what you will.

      • Nighty says:

        Hello Kitty, that’s already been highly discussed on one of the posts here.. actually on a post on Benedict… largely…
        Oh…they have the answer… yeah, it’s what we all thought…. oh the commando boy…

      • Hello Kitty says:

        @Nighty: pray tell what is the nickname for the Batch’s dong? Batchdong? Cumberdong?

      • Sighs says:

        Cumberdong? Sounds like something you’d get in a kids meal at an amusement park.

        Ugh. I just grossed myself out.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        A nickname for the “Cumberdong” ? Please no. There isn’t one. Have some respect.

      • Nighty says:

        No one calls Dragonfly to his… ahem… we call Dragonfly to TOM himself… God….

        We’ve discussed the fact that the blind item “going comando” was referring to TH… Maybe I didn’t explain myself properly…. :)

      • Isadora says:

        BC’s dong? Well, of course it’s the CuCumber. What else?

        And Hiddles himself called his dong Mjolnir. We should probably go with that.

      • Hello Kitty says:

        Guys, Isadora just won the Internet. For real. CuCumber and Mjolnir it is!

    • Make mine a double says:

      @’P'enny, totally agree about the man crush. CHEMboy got competition there.

    • poppyseed says:

      jim beaver can’t seem to go a day now without tweeting something cute and complimentary about Hiddles. it’s adorable and obviously he’s found a kindred spirit. anyone with an expansive, optimistic view of life seems to become fast friends with him. jessica chastain herself is a ray of sunshine and basically spews rainbows and flowers on her facebook and instagram, so no surprise on their friendship, either. this makes me think that cumberbatch, despite his sharp sense of humor, is a lot softer than he appears (though i don’t know too much about him) because of their friendship. can’t imagine Hiddles could tolerate spending much time with a major cynic.

      • Isadora says:

        “can’t imagine Hiddles could tolerate spending much time with a major cynic.”

        But… but…. *goes crying*

    • Lilacflowers says:

      @’p'enny, Jim Beaver seems to have developed more than a crush. He seems to be madly in love. I did enjoy reading his reviews of The Hollow Crown.

    • icerose says:

      Beaver is totally god smacked by Hiddles and has just watched the complete Hollow Crown Series and reviewed them on his facebook-does a great job as well.
      On top of that Burn Gorman who is also in Crimson has been tweeting re Tom’s charms as well. Burn Gorman and Tom in the same film works well for me as well.

  29. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    Pluck and shape the ‘brows, add a little foundation, top it off with a long brown wig – and Voila you have Kate Middleton – wonder if Wills is a fan of Hiddles?

    • 'P'enny says:

      @Mitch….

      LOL

      Wills was at School with Hiddles, but there was two years between them and Tom has always said, he is no closer to him than us. Not, sure I believe him though, not with Tom’s family connections.

      • joe spider says:

        Doubt there are any family connections to be honest. But Tom did referee him in a football match whilst they were at Eton.

      • 'p'enny says:

        @Joe

        His Vestey cousins are connected and hobknob with the Royal set. [But, i don't how many cousins far-removed they are now, he's never named dropped them or never seen or spotted at the family's big weddings]

    • itsetsyou says:

      Don’t forget the eyeliner ;)

    • Isadora says:

      rofl… now that’s a fanfic for the tumblr brigade: Will’s unhappy and unrequited love for a fellow pupil at Eton. Or since it’s tumblr and they are smutty: Will’s torrid and passionate love affair with Tommy (described in all details), but they had some kind of fallout … maybe Tommy was an unjust referee at said football match and they had a shouting match over it, throwing dishes and all. Or Will is the tragic prince that has to marry a woman to produce an heir instead of following his real and everlasting love. But then later he finds and marries a girl that reminded him so much of his first love. Bam.

      That’s so horrible I need to wash my brain now.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        But wouldn’t it make more sense if Will’s unrequited love were Eddie Redmayne? They were the same year at Eton and Eddie did the female roles in the school plays.

      • Isadora says:

        Hm… yes, that’s probably more logical. And I guess he would also make a nice Kate Middleton if you add a long brown wig and some eyeliner. He is very prettboy-ish.

        Alas, fanfic writers – do your worst!

  30. Leah says:

    I’d hit him as a blond but I’m wavering with that black/brown hair. Ok sure I’d hit him anyway I can hit him.

  31. Make mine a double says:

    I’ve got to the party late. Quite exhausted, what with all the activity with Benny, his accessories and the broom cupboard last night. But yes, I would hit it. I like Poe Hiddles. In fact, Benny’s out the cupboard and Edgar Allan Shakepeare is in.

    Out of interest, do you think he feels like he’s back at school, as that costume is very similar to the Eton uniform.

    • 'P'enny says:

      @Make mine a double says “do you think he feels like he’s back at school, as that costume is very similar to the Eton uniform.”

      not unless they got up to murder, sex, ghosty stuff and kinky things… [actually, probably yes]

      • Make mine a double says:

        I was going to say, they probably did. Got to entertain yourself somehow when the lights go out. Soggy biscuit?

    • Nighty says:

      @Make mine a double… how was the rest of the night in the broom cupboard? Hope it good and that our sweet Benny raised to the expectations alongside with the concert given by 2cellos… :)

      Edit: Didn’t you move to the TARDIS for more room or Capaldi didn’t let you?

      • Make mine a double says:

        We moved to the TARDIS but the space time con-twidelee-idnium button got stuck on broom cupboard mode, so no extra room. We tried hitting it with a cello but it just wouldn’t budge, so we just had to make do with what we had. I’m giving Benny the boot now tho, after seeing Victorian Poe Hiddles. It’s the buttons and the eye-f**k stare that’s got me.

        How’s your headache btw? All better I hope.

      • Nighty says:

        Much better today and hope it will continue better… migraines are terrible, specially if they make you feel nauseated, but let’s see how it goes till the end of the day…
        Thanks for asking!! :D

    • Isadora says:

      I never knew how the Eton school uniforms looked like. Damn. It’s like Muggle Hogwarts. And Hiddles was House Captain.

  32. Abby_J says:

    I bet Tom is tired of the black wigs too, but it pays the rent and all. He’s funny because he really can look completely different from one day to the next. That is probably a great quality in an actor, I’d imagine.

    So yes, I would hit it any time, with any of his different looks, but if I get to choose, I am going with Henry V Tom. I adore the facial hair.

    http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/hattie123/13682619/316704/original.gif

    • Intro Outro says:

      Oh yesss. Out of all his screen/stage looks, i dig Henry V and Coriolanus THE MOST. Those 2 are definitely the sexiest Hiddles.

    • joe spider says:

      For those saying he is not ageing well, I think it is the pale make up. He looked mighty fine a Coriolanus to me and that was only a couple of months ago:

      http://www.pinterest.com/pin/483222234990482287/

      • Abby_J says:

        I think he’s just hotter doing Shakespeare. He loves it, and we love him doing it. He looks lovely in Coriolanus as well.

      • 'P'enny says:

        He’s look really well since about last September, and by the time Coriolanus, but he looked really perfect. In fact I liked him a lot at the Olivier awards, and those shot of him walking around Toronto, too were good. He is looking a lot better than he did this time last year. Whether he was stressed and stuff, who knows. But, he spent most of 2013 to me looking too thin.

        His problem, I think, is when he loses too much weight, he drops it fast. He needs to slow down on the running, especially outside in the English elements and do more weights.

        But, I think he needs to get those wee eye bags snipped in a few years, he’s getting away with them now, until he turns on deranged mad-big gorgous smile and they peep out to say hello.

      • Intro Outro says:

        I have similar problems lol. When i lose too much weight, it’s first of all my face that thins out – and it immediately makes me look older (although i usually look 3-4 years younger than my age).

        Hiddles is aging fine imo. He’ll look even better when he’s 40. I have a good eye for that ;D He’ll probably lose some of his gushy energy by then and it will only suit him better.

    • joe spider says:

      I never liked the Henry V look so much – made him look a bit like a spiv imho:
      http://blogs.coventrytelegraph.net/thegeekfiles/Tom%20Hiddleston%20new%20pic.jpg

    • Isadora says:

      For me it’s Coriolanus and Prince Hal (the longer blonde hair, the slightest hint of stubble, the red leather jacket. Mmmm…).

      I’m not digging the Henry V beard too much. Or the ginger hair. And that’s strange because I normally like bearded gingers (hello Fassy).

  33. Um, that would be a yes from me. And for the record…I’m 5’11”…so, you know…..loigistics and all…….just sayin’.

  34. lunchcoma says:

    Even with the icky Loki hair, the answer is yes.

  35. Make mine a double says:

    Reading through the Twitter feeds (yes, I’m bored), it seems there may be beginning to be an issue with fans again. Not that they aren’t behaving but that there are too many turning up.

    • 'P'enny says:

      Yep, well the studio must of realised this would happen. It’s not just Hiddles this time, its Charlie too, he has his huge fan base. The problem is the pictures on just jared has sent the fan base loopy. They could have perhaps put signs and barriers up and said no to actor signings. But, it’s all good publicity. you can even go around the Casa Lomo anyway, they’ve kept it open during filming. LOL.

      • Make mine a double says:

        That would ruin the mood of the film just a little. Some really dramatic scene and then just at the edge of the shot, a group on a guided tour with the tour guide waving an umbrella.

    • Janeite says:

      No surprise there, especially once all of the “I met Tom today” pics and breathless stories started showing up on Tumblr and Twitter.

  36. maybeiamcrazy says:

    I would hit it. He would recite Shakespeare to me morning after so i would hit it again. It is non-ending circle that would kill us both.

  37. browniecakes says:

    Be kind to Professor Snape or he’ll give you detention at midnight in the forest with Hagrid.

  38. vee says:

    IIRC the Shakespeare video is from the “Shakespeare Uncovered” series, the episode with Jeremy Irons. Go to Netflix.

    • lunchcoma says:

      Yup yup yup. Lots of him looking handsome while talking about Prince Hal.

      The series (six episodes) is actually pretty interesting, period. I’m guessing it might not have anything in it that devoted Shakespeare fans and regular theatergoers wouldn’t know, but for someone like me who’s interested but not a scholar of the material, it’s quite informative.

    • icerose says:

      I think it is from “Muse of fire??”" -it said it somewhere on the page-it is a film where two guys interview a lot of actors, directors and others whilst getting ready to perform some Shakespeare

  39. Bread and Circuses says:

    Gah! He looks lovely! :D

  40. Ellen says:

    I don’t know about the ballroom look. He makes me think of Jeeves for some reason. I prefer the dark brooding costume more.
    I don’t know why they gave him that wig as it looks a little ratty. Maybe it will grow on me.

    I get the feeling that poor Hiddles is getting annoyed with fans. Some of them admit knocking on his trailer door while others keep coming back with their friends like Hiddles is some fairground attraction.

    Not cool ladies and some could say if this was a normal situation harassment.

    By the way love the fanty, j.eyre , Janeite and TommyAnne banter. You’ve guys cheered me up. Keep up the good work :-)

    • Janeite says:

      Thanks, Ellen.
      I’ve seen a few pics of him with fans that have been posted on Tumblr and it looks like there are quite a few people there. Crowds always gather for location filming though so that in itself is probably pretty usual. Haven’t seen anything about anyone knocking on his trailer door though. Anyone doing that is beyond obnoxious. I would hope there would be security present to keep anyone from getting to that point.

  41. Just me says:

    No, I have weird feeling about him. I find him attractive but I can’t imagine sex with him, no even after reading the story with the banana, no I don’t see his sexappeal.

    • Nighty says:

      story with the banana?? Can’t recall that story… enlighten me please..

    • 'p'enny says:

      oh for God’s sake he was in mid-twenties, and it was his mate. Anybody not seen Inbetweeners? its what stupid kids in their twenties do when they go to Amsterdam, they don’t go for the Van Gogh museum. Men on stag nights do far worse, when they go to Amsterdam.

      Fans who keep digging this sh”@ up! go away.
      Seriously, very very old news.

      • Nighty says:

        Calm down @’p'enny… I just didn’t know what the story was about… actually it’s funny… lol…. Good to know he has a naughty side to him… :)

    • Lilacflowers says:

      An Amsterdam story. The red light district of Amsterdam is a huge tourist attraction. That’s a rather mild story compared to others I’ve heard. And he wasn’t participating, just relating what he saw to his girlfriend at the time – Gwen Christie. Hardly anything to judge a person over.

      • Intro Outro says:

        Wait WHAT? He dated Gwen Christie?? I was just watching that oldish documentary about Cymbeline (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q08h9S1k8Gg if anyone’s interested/hasn’t yet seen it) and had to laugh at how she towered over him in part 2, although granted she was wearing high heels. That’s one tremendous – in all possible aspects – woman! ^_^

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Gwen is fabulous.

      • Intro Outro says:

        She is! What a woman! Pity it didn’t work for them actually. Are there any pics of them together? I tried googling but didn’t find any.

  42. Hannah says:

    He does nothing for me. Can’t for the life of me understand his fandom he hasn’t had a lead in a hit show of film and he is just an ordinary looking English guy.

    • jammypants says:

      Why does he need to be a lead in order to be attractive to people?

      • Hannah says:

        Didn’t say that but his body of work is small if you compare him to his contemporaries I. E guys in their early to mid 30s. I can understand that cumby has a nutty fandom given that he is on a hit show and has a much bigger body of work. Just seems a little weird with Tom.

      • Intro Outro says:

        You guys make up your mind XD Just the other day ladies on Cumby thread complained his film career might be in decline and he doesn’t have any serious film projects ATM! Given the 4.5 year difference between BC and TH, their body of work is very comparable. I can nastily add that TH became world-famous with Thor/Avengers at a younger age than BC did with Sherlock. Which kinda gives him a head-start in his scramble for stardom compared to BC ;P

        Seriously though, what’s with this tendency to unfavourably compare Hiddles to Cumby on Hiddles threads? I haven’t noticed this kind of thing on Cumby threads here. Gives me these nasty impulses lol.

      • jammypants says:

        @Hannah, maybe people just like the actual guy? He has a cute personality.

    • 'p'enny says:

      @Hannah

      He is sort of normal looking, but he has a powerful smile and blue of blue eyes and he is VERY TALL. His fandom has grown because it’s not just his acting roles, but because he has been entertaining, very funny and charming personality which has won fans like me over. I have to be honest, he is not my type. Until now.

      As for lead roles, the guy is only just turned 33 (Benedict is 38] and considering this, in three years, he has been the lead and only villian in Avengers, the lead actor in Hollow Crown, the lead in Coriolanus on stage, joint lead in OLLA and Deep Blue Sea and his other supporting roles that have been very memorable and garnered critical acclaim. Before Loki, he packed in a theatre work.

      I’ve just read your comment against Benedict work CV, he should be the same. Benedict is five years older and… I really can’t be arsed. Can someone else go there?i am bored.

      • LadySlippers says:

        FYI Benedict is only 37 so there’s only 4.5 age difference.

      • 'p'enny says:

        @ladyslippers

        did you count day and weeks too? LOL!

        I AM TRYING TO MAKE BENNY CLOSER TO MY OWN AGE!!!!

      • jammypants says:

        Benny turns 38 soon.

      • icerose says:

        I am with you-and you can add in that Tom started later as he did the two years at RADA on top of his Cambridge degree-Benny has a great CV but he did a lot more of the filler work in TV series -I have spotted him in lots of the who done it series. Tom kind of jumped a lot of that and went it to fairly substantial parts fairly quickly if you do not count the acting jobs he took whilst at Cambridge.
        To me there career paths are very different -Benny has built his career up over longer period both on TV and in the theatre whilst Tom kind of walked into lead roles in film and in the theatre upon leaving RADA .

      • Isadora says:

        What ‘p’enny said. He wasn’t my type either, but I’ve seen him act, I’ve seen him being nice in interviews and somehow… here I am. And he HAS pretty eyes.

    • poppyseed says:

      Agreed, his looks are not extraordinary. There are things that people pick up on, like his smile and height and hands and legs — but it doesn’t matter that much. He’s not perfect looking, and who cares. It’s his personality and talent that seems to draw most fans in, and suddenly a normal-handsome guy becomes super attractive. Take, for instance, this interview: http://www.nowtoronto.com/movies/story.cfm?content=197707

      OK, not the interview (which is more of the same stuff he did for OLLA) but the audio clip at the end of the story of him talking about Socrates’ Symposium and relating that to Tilda and Bowie somehow. Damn it, Hiddles. Why must you be so thoughtful and surprising when talking about anything at all? He could be your hot English or Classics teacher or just a smart friend. I find him to be so much interesting as a person than 99% of the vacant, flippant actors out there.

      • Isadora says:

        Thank you for that link, haven’t heard it before! I have to think of the people who like to point out that Hiddles is … kind of your average Eton boy with a good education, but he’s not a genius or something. This has come up rather often when Hiddles talks about Shakespeare for example. Honestly, I think it doesn’t matter because how many fans actually know Eton boys. Or someone who likes to talk about Shakespeare at all? (Probably more common in English speaking countries, but still.) Or in this case Plato? I’m not a sucker for Plato myself, but just the possibility to have a conversation about this is wonderful. And I think that’s were a lot of his less crazy but still enamoured fangirls come from – they are thirsty for a man like that because they probably don’t know one personally. Pretty faces on the other hand are everywhere.

      • Intro Outro says:

        @Isadora:

        “Hiddles is … kind of your average Eton boy with a good education, but he’s not a genius or something. This has come up rather often when Hiddles talks about Shakespeare for example.”

        I think the problem here is not *what* he says but *how* he says it. His enthusiasm and wide eyes and eagerness ;) Imagine him saying the same things he says – but in a more serious and detached manner, with significant pauses and sophisticated body language. The impression changes drastically.

      • Isadora says:

        Of course he is always very enthusiastic when talking about old Will. But there were actual complaints that he says rather basic and general stuff about Shakespeare and no in-depth, personal evaluation of his works. So I guess it was no criticism of his “delivery”. I have no doubt that Hiddles has not really groundbreaking stuff to offer for Shakespeare experts, but as I do like Shakespeare without even being half an expert I still enjoy it. ;-)

      • 'P'enny says:

        @Isadora

        who is complaining?

        Tom can’t seem to win here, LOL he get’s criticised for talking about Shakespeare and now someone, somewhere is criticising him for not talking about Shakes in a level deemed high enough? He has gone record saying he wants to make Shakespeare accessible to younger people, that means taking it down a peg or two for people like me.

        I have no doubts that if Tom was talking Shakespeare to Ken Branagh is conversation will be different.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @isadora and ‘p’enny, there is a video that came out around the time of The Hollow Crown when he is on a panel with Mark Rylance and a “Shakespeare authority” in which he does just fine, even though the “Shakespeare authority” seems to be more interested in insulting Eton than discussing Shakespeare.

        that was on Newsnight, and it was Simon Scharma. I thought better of Simon actually, I l really liked his History of Britain programmes , but he had the size of Everest that night. Don’t what is problem was, he just saw Tom as a soft touch and he was, he didn’t bite at it all.

      • Intro Outro says:

        @Isadora:

        Yeah, i see what you mean. Some of his remarks really do sound quite generic. However, they’re usually to the point. But way too long-winded sometimes, i admit xD

        @’P'enny:

        I am so sorry, i think my English is failing me here, can you please explain “he had the size of Everest that night. Don’t what is problem was, he just saw Tom as a soft touch and he was, he didn’t bite at it all”? Like, this Scharma man was arrogant that night and thought Hiddles was too soft, and Tom indeed didn’t attack back?

      • Isadora says:

        Yes, I’ve seen him on Newsnight and I think he was really good. I actually love that he is never like “I’m an actor, I played Shakespeare stuff, I know all the truths about his works.” – like so many other people. As I said: Personally I totally enjoy him talking about Shakespeare, please more. ;-)

    • Klew says:

      Most of his work has been on stage or on British television. His turn as Coriolanus was amazing. The man is extremely talented and will be a huge star if he wishes to be.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      @Hannah, Cumberbatch is not his contemporary and he has actually accomplished more by age 33 than Cumberbatch had. For those who actually are his contemporaries, putting aside those who were child actors such as Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Gosling, Elijah Wood, and Justin Timberlake with established careers before adulthood, that means: Chris Evans, Taylor Kitsch, Hayden Christiansen, Michael Pitt, Rupert Friend, Charlie Hunnam, Zachary Levi, Chris Pine, and Ben Whishaw, In comparison, he is doing quite well and his CV lacks much of the crap, like Attack of the Killer Tomatoes II, Leprechaun IV, Saw VI, or any dumb sex romp with “Summer” in the title that appears on the CVs of most actors. His theater work meets with critical acclaim and although he hasn’t been in many films, his performances have usually been praised by critics. He did have a television show, Wallender, which he had to quit because of scheduling conflicts with The Avengers. I don’t understand why people on these threads always seem to demand that he accomplish more than others did or face dire consequences. The 33 year old Patrick Stewart wasn’t exactly a household name in the US or elsewhere; neither was Sir Ian McKellan, why does Tom have to be?

      • jammypants says:

        It’s the hardcore Cumberbatch fans. Their ambitions for their man know no bounds! Hiddleston is competition! :p Can’t we all just enjoy both? ;)

      • Nighty says:

        I’m actually not understanding this.. They both have great careers…. :)

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @jammypants, sigh. Oddly, their aspirations for him seem to depend on tearing other actors (Tom, Tom Hardy, Fassbender, insert various other British names) down. He doesn’t do anything for me but I do recognize he has some talent, however, their antics are tarnishing him instead of building him up.

      • jammypants says:

        @Lilac, I had to take a break from the last Benny thread myself. The less I read about him, the better I can appreciate him. The poor man can’t be faulted.

      • Nighty says:

        But who’s tearing other actors?? I think they are both fantastic… But that’s me… don’t understand where this part of the thread is going, but don’t like it…
        I don’t think there’s or has ever been any competition and everyone (mostly) comment on BC and TH because they like them both equally… but ok…

      • Intro Outro says:

        @Nighty:

        Unfortunately, even i, being relatively new here, have noticed this tendency =( Some people seem to come to TH threads specifically to say something unpleasant about him – and usually they are BC fans. It’s somewhat levelled out in recent threads, but if you dig through archives – you’ll see what i mean.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Intro Outro and Nighty, it has gotten rather unpleasant at times and it makes no sense.

      • jammypants says:

        yea I don’t quite understand this behavior. Usually if I don’t like an actor, I won’t follow his career or talk about him. I also wouldn’t go into every post about said actor and passive aggressively put him down by saying his co-stars look better or are more talented. When you’re a regular poster under a certain actor, you’ll pick up on who does this. It’s always the same ones. They’ll also unabashedly remind everyone that Benny is better, always until the end of time and no one is better. No one. :p

    Like him as an actor, he’s nice enough but no, just not interested.

  44. Sarah says:

    My my what I just read on LA! Hiddles stalkers scare me to death.

    • joe spider says:

      Someone needs therapy methinks.

      • Sarah says:

        Totally! And the worst is that Tom follows her on twitter!

        Edit: I think this is the one who told him she lived in a boat or something like that back in the “Wendy” days.

        Edit 2: Found it! She’s Kate Miller, Hiddles fangirl who submitted a – fangirl – article to MTV about Tom back in 2012. There is where they mention the boat thing. http://splashpage.mtv.com/2012/12/17/tom-hiddleston-hero/

      • Ellen says:

        The thing is that these stalkers are the ones who help fund his indie films and Coriolanus. They’re the ones who snap up high tickets to galas he’s attending or pay ridiculous amounts of money for memorabilia.
        Even if he doesn’t like them much or isn’t keen on them following him around he’ll never tell them to stop because of what they’ve done for him.

        We know he’s going to regret not telling fans off properly one day. It’s just a question when

      • jammypants says:

        How do they find the time to work and keeping their bank accounts replenishable? It boggles me really.

      • Janeite says:

        Technically I guess I could be considered as one of the fans who paid a ridiculous amount for memorabilia…does anyone remember the sketch Hiddles did of himself as Loki last fall? I was the one who won that auction. The money went to Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital. I also donated the sketch back to them and it was given to a young patient in the hospital. I have no idea if Hiddleston knows about it or not. That was not why I did it. I requested that the hospital keep my identity secret. I suppose I’m kind of “outing” myself here but since no one here knows me in the real world, no biggie.

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        Oh Janeite. Hugging you right now for your generosity. What a sweet thing to do and I hope that the kid who ended up with the drawing is feeling better and appreciates it.

        Please tell me you at least got to rub that drawing over your face before you donated it back!

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Another hug for Janeite. That was a wonderful thing to do.

      • lunchcoma says:

        That’s a wonderful thing to do, Janeite.

      • icerose says:

        Janeite what a level thing to do -

      • jammypants says:

        “Please tell me you at least got to rub that drawing over your face before you donated it back!”

        @squirrel, lol!

        That was really sweet of you Janeite! most people would keep the artwork.

      • Janeite says:

        Thanks, you guys. And no, I never had possession of the sketch. I knew what I wanted to do with it the minute I put my first bid on it. I spent some time in a children’s hospital when I was a kid so I have a major soft spot for little ones in hospitals. I’ve had an amazing life since then so it was really a pay-it-forward type of thing. I did tell the hospital that it was okay to give them my name and I have heard from the family. They are lovely and very appreciative.

      • Isadora says:

        Janeite, that’s wonderful! And don’t you dare kind of compare yourself to the stalker fangirls because.. there is no comparison at all between the thing you did and the thing people like the Wendy woman do.

        And what Ellen wrote is essentially right. I wrote something similar on the Cumberbatch thread – but it’s a difference if fans are just very enthusiastic (and spending money, travelling to London for Coriolanus etc.) of if it starts getting weird – like the people pretending to be someone else on twitter to get in touch with him in RL and stuff like that. I’m not even sure that these people ARE the ones that spend money on his indie films. I guess a lot of them are just downloading all his films.

      • Ellen says:

        Oh janeite that was a wonderful thing to do. At least we no not all memorabilia ends up in the stalkers hands.
        I’m in agreement in where they get the money from. They don’t do it as a one off like janeite

      • Janeite says:

        Thanks, Isadora and Ellen. I suppose that without personally knowing any of the people involved, it’s impossible to say what motivates some of the fans to do what they do. But I’d like to think that if Tom Hiddleston knew what I did, it would make him happy. And that’s good enough for me! :)

    http://tomandlorenzo.com/2014/04/tom-hiddleston-and-charlie-hunnam-on-the-set-of-crimson-peak/

    Actually, if you frame out the hair Tom suddenly looks a lot younger.

    • 'p'enny says:

      Charlie has big eye bags in one of those pics, and seeing the water bottle i wonder if the cast were out on razz last night? Celebrating Shakespeare 450th, bound to be a riot.

    • Abby_J says:

      Those pictures just ruined my Charlie Hunnam fantasies. Yikes. Just not that attractive. I’ll scuttle off to find some Jax Teller pictures. Haha! In my personal life, I would NEVER go for some greasy haired biker boy, but it seems totally okay on TV. :)

    • Lilacflowers says:

      @’p'enny, it could be makeup. We don’t know what the character is supposed to be experiencing. Maybe the character is supposed to be tired or ill.

  46. Geronimo says:

    Would just like to add that I met him last night! I actually went to tour Casa Loma (which if you haven’t been, is a MUST see). The film crew/cast were all there and there was quite a lot of extras strolling the halls. It was an amazing atmosphere to be in, although the film completely took over the first floor, which has some of the most gorgeous rooms.

    I knew the filming was taking place and sat around for a few hours just to experience what it’s like on set (I’m currently majoring in film, so it was a great experience). Long story short, my friend and I stayed out a bit in hopes to get pictures with the cast. Everyone came out to do autographs and pictures except Mia.

    Jessica was really nice to everyone, as was Charlie. I got the feeling that a lot of people didn’t actually know who he was, just got a picture to *say* they did. Jim Beaver was the nicest man on the entire planet.. I was excited to see him because I LOVED him on Supernatural. Tom was also really kind and gracious.. of course 99.9% of the crowd (all girls I might add) were there for him.

    PS: Tom also smells incredibly good ;)

    There were a lot of fans, but everyone was contained, followed instructions from the crew and were not wild at all. Mostly they were grateful and of course excited, but they treated the cast and crew with lots of respect.

    • 'p'enny says:

      Hugs Geronimo, i am seeing if you still smell of Hiddles.

      God, i am so jealous. LOL

      Tom is a defo a star in the making.

    • Klew says:

      I see so many comments about how good he smells and it makes me crazy. I want to smell him…

    • Ellen says:

      I hope you weren’t one of the ones that keep gawping at him. You dont sound it but I think people should give him some space. Who knows what time he was up and he could be really tried. We all no he’s too polite to tell them to back off.

      I hope it doesn’t turn into Coriolanus backdoor part 2

    • Make mine a double says:

      I read on a twitter feed (so how true it is I don’t know) that some fans were banging on his trailer door. Not that I’m saying you did anything like that Geronimo and it’s nice to hear that everyone with you was respectful and followed instructions etc. Shocking if people have been though.

      • Sarah says:

        Last week fans took pictures with Tom outside his trailer (street). He also signed autographs. They said it was his trailer.

    • Geronimo says:

      ‘p’enny:
      Hahaha, hugs right back to you! Unfortunately I smelt of wind and dust because of how chilly it was in Toronto last night. Any sign of the Hiddles scent is 100% gone. He’s a really sweet guy, based on the 0.5 seconds I spoke to him. And TALL. I’m 5’10 and I was dwarfed by him.

      Klew:
      LOL those comments are definitely the truth. He smells really great… I think that’s probably the one thing I’ll try and remember forever.

      Ellen:
      I definitely was not. It’s weird because the first glimpse I got of him happened as I was walking out of Casa Loma. I saw the back of his head peeping through the main entrance ( in costume) and wasn’t sure if it was him until he turned around. When I actually saw his face, my eyes probably became quite big but I didn’t freak out or try and pounce on him. I definitely agree people should give him some space because at the end of the day, they’re all trying to make a movie. When he came out to greet us, he did say he was tired (which then caused a bunch of “awwwws” to come from the crowd), but luckily the batch of people I was with were pleasant. And he is definitely way too polite to tell people to back off, which is why I think several crew members were there to make sure things ran smoothly.

      Make mine a Double:
      Wow!! That is the first I’m hearing of that. I cannot imagine how they possibly managed to do that because there was literally crew members and a few security guys everywhere. I can’t even think how those people did it.. but it’s disgusting. At the end of the night, the cast came to the entrance of the parking lot and had us line up so that there wasn’t a huge and impatient crowd.

      Sarah:
      I can’t see how that would be possible, to be quite honest. As soon as Casa Loma closes (5 pm) security/crew members have the fans wait behind this half stone wall between the parking lot and sidewalk/road. The cast came and greeted us there, instead of having us go to their trailers (which were parked in the parking lot facing a sort of “wall”). Maybe when there was a smaller crowd he met fans in front of his trailer? But even that I could not imagine happening.

      Who knows at this point! There’s obviously a few obsessors within the fanbase. I’m just glad I haven’t encountered them (yet) :p

    • itsetsyou says:

      @Geronimo – can you think of the cologne he wears that makes him smell so good?

      • Isadora says:

        yep. I’m probably entering a bit creepers territory now, but everyone just says he smells good… what is good? Sandalwood? Vetiver? Nivea cream? Hugo Boss? Aaaah… the curiosity…

      • Lilacflowers says:

        I’m imagining sandalwood, but I just like the smell of sandalwood.

      • Geronimo says:

        Sadly I am not an expert in men’s cologne, so I cannot help you ladies out. He kind of smells musky with a hint of sweetness? That’s probably the worst description ever but it’s all I can think of haha. I am curious as the rest of you! Would’ve asked if it wouldn’t have made me sound like a very huge creeper.

    I love him with dark hair. I could watch The Avengers a million times just to look at him.

  51. Sarah says:

    I don’t know how I feel about this, I mean he already played a comic book character based on a norse myth demon, then he played a vampire in OLLA and now an incubus? Hopefully this is not true.

    http://drintimacy.wordpress.com/incubus-and-succubus-sex-demons-of-the-night/ if any of you are like me and wanted to know what incubus/succubus is.

    I hope he isn’t this either. I personally want to see him more challenged in a role and not keep playing the same sort of characters.

    • itsetsyou says:

      Ummm… I don’t know:
      Incubus: 1: An evil spirit that lies on persons in their sleep; especially one that has sexual intercourse with women while they are sleeping.
      Succubus: A demon assuming female form to have sexual intercourse with men in their sleep.

    I adore TH. It makes me feel a bit guilty as I am a – cough- mature lady who could be misconstrued as being a dirty old woman whereas my interest is of course pure and platonic and nothing to do with his hair and eyes and bone structure and hands and legs and….sorry, time for my blood pressure pills… I love these posts, so surreal, keep up the good work ladies. I am not going to pursue the issue because it becomes tiresome but have to get off my chest that the other bloke is a good actor and can be funny but I do not see the attraction. One dose of geriatric fan worship is probably enough…

  54. 'p'enny says:

    i think this section should be deleted, before others read it and it spoils the film for them, too.

    • pixie-stix says:

      Looks like that comment was deleted ‘p’enny…just wish it had been before people read it. :-/

    • Ellen says:

      Some fan on ONTD has somehow got hold of the script and is offering to share it.

      Honestly what is wrong with some people? He, fanboy Jim and the rest of the cast are putting a lot of time and effort into making this film only for a few to ruin it for people.

      • 'P'enny says:

        @Ellen I think it’s a very old script, Del Toro wrote the film a decade ago or something. He has a library of unfinished projects. Last year, the script it was rewritten by Lucinda Coxon [? ]. I doubt very sincerely, the copy of the script which people have been flogging on IMDB since the start of the film was announced, last year, is going to be anything like the film. If anything, Del Toro is likely to go out of way to change it because of that.

        The other point as well, Hiddles said, during Coriolanus, that Del Toro keeps on changing the script and sending him emails asking his opinion on this and that. And, with that calibre of cast, I think a lot of scenes will change to suit the dynamics of the actors.

        So to be honest – I wouldn’t bother reading the script. Especially, if they read something juicy and doesn’t turn up on screen.

      • Sarah says:

        Ellen, someone on Tumblr has just published the entire plot and ending of the film based on what he/she believes is an actual copy of the script he/she recently got from someone. Don’t know if this is true or not. The Tumblr story sounds gothic enough but is lacking yesterday’s supernatural stuff.

        And it’s clear there are fangirls on the web who are leaking and reporting from INSIDE the production. Not just those who wait outside for autographs and photos. So he is basically surrounded.

      • Make mine a double says:

        Why do people feel the need to do this? Even if it’s an old script the spine of the story will probably be similar, even if details and specifics have changed.

        When the BBC accidentally released the Doctor Who to some people before the final episode last year, they asked people not to spoilers anywhere and people didn’t. If you say you’re a TH fan and you know the plot, you have an obligation not to spoil it for anyone else.

      • 'P'enny says:

        @sarah If they inside the production, they are working there in some capacity and they will get caught they will be sue’d/fired never get jobs in the industry again, blacklisted. the silly idiots think tumblr/twitter will protect their identity, it won’t.

        Not too mention, if this is all because of Tom this is going to annoy Del Toro, no end. yet, at the same time its good publicity. In some ways bet he is grateful he hasn’t got Benedict, it might have been even worse, with Sherlock fans.

      • Sarah says:

        I agree, ‘P’enny. It’s good publicity but it’s bad for the production at the same time. Like you said above “God help him” with High Rise or whatever his next film is. Not to mention “God help him” if he decides to show up in Wimbledon with a ‘date’ this year.

      • Ellen says:

        I think if it does start to annoy GDT he might be having words with everyone. I don’t think Benny’s fandom is any worse than Hiddles one. What is the difference is that Benny would not be scared to tell them off. Whenever Tom tells them off a bit they don’t really listen.

        Anymore news on HighRise? I’m hoping it’s studio based and not leaked.
        I don’t want to become a hiddled nanny but it is getting a bit cringy now.

      • Intro Outro says:

        IMDB lists High Rise under pre-production https://pro-labs.imdb.com/name/nm1089991?d=nm_ovrview_contact I guess this means basic funding is more or less secured and the team is settling cast members and other important stuff? Still, it’s been way too long since the initial announcement. I want some fresh news, too.

      • kaisei says:

        It’s been in pre-production for a while, but in a recent interview the director said they were still looking for funds, so no the money part isn’t secure at all.

      • Sarah says:

        Last thing I read about High Rise not long ago is that they were still looking for funding.

      • Isadora says:

        At least High Rise is based on a book, so the “spoiler” is out there for a while already. ;-)

        I’m kind of scared of tumblr by now, I don’t want to run into a Crimson Peak spoiler by accident.

      • Janeite says:

        Ugh. Whether it’s an old script or the current one or just completely made up, I don’t want any spoilers at all about this movie. That possible spoiler comment on here yesterday was annoying enough. I’m really looking forward to this movie even if it is still quite a ways off. It has so much that I like-a good director, good cast, it’s a period piece, AND it’s scary! I can’t wait!

      • jammypants says:

        Yea that spoiler annoyed me to no end. Extremely rude.

  55. Gin Princess says:

    Hiddles will always have my heart, and it may be the gin cocktails but ….. no.

    I prefer my Hiddles blonde and curly and in these pictures he looks like he is dressed as that puppet from Saw….

  56. itsetsyou says:

    Sheer speculation: Hiddleston is very handsome but I have a hard time imagining how anyone would want to date him seriously. He is such a … actor, through and through. Cumberbatch (whom I’m not crazy about actually) appears to be a bit more of a real man. Hiddleston probably puts his craft and work above everything else and I’m trying to imagine who would keep his interest for longer than three months (besides Shakespeare).
    But I might be totally off here.

    • joe spider says:

      But it is an undeniable fact that everyone who actually knows him says what a lovely person he is. They wouldn’t all be saying that if he was putting on an act, surely?

      • Ellen says:

        There’s a couple of rumors on tumblr and reddit. One was him being rude to medics in ER after he bumped his head in Coriolanus and the other was him acting like a diva during the Olivier awards

      • Isadora says:

        I’ll believe this when I see it. Really, Tom “Sorry” Hiddleston?

        I can imagine EVERYONE being grumpy in ER when you’re probably tired, in pain and most likely annoyed that the door incident happened at all. Everytime I went into a hospital for medical reasons I had to wait hours because unless you are dying right then and there or missing several limbs you sit there with all the other miserable people in this miserable place. Hospitals are horrid. So maybe, with quite a stretch of imagination, I can see him snapping at medics there. Maybe…

        But diva acting during the Oliviers? That would be a first. He’s sometimes a humble bragger, but there was never even a hint of diva in the past.

      • 'P'enny says:

        Tom’s no diva, not yet anyways. Jealous people start rumours at awards ceremonies. There is probably quite a few of his theatre cronies who haven’t landed roles in big films and fancied slinging some mud. All, I heard was he was last in, because he was signing for the fans. I can imagine the nose-turning from all the theatre louvies.

        And, I think it’s time fans starting to seeing he has a normal side too, the guy bashing his head against a door, just before he is about to film a Jaguar advert, and probably under pressure to start a new film. Bet, he was just basically tired as f@~# sitting in A&E. UK A&E is an unorganised nightmare – and if it the staff and some of fellow A&E inmates spotted him and going it’s ‘loki’ and pointing fingers probably didn’t help matters, either.

      • Leah says:

        As far as the ER rumor goes…wasn’t he bashed in the head the last night of Coriolanus? So why would they offer tickets to see the play if it was already done. You know what if he was an a-hole so what? Everybody has their temper flashes now and again.

      • Isadora says:

        Leah, I totally agree. Everybody has their temper flashes and as I said, ER isn’t a nice place to be. And I don’t want to sound like a Bennie Nanny (what would that be? A Tommy Mommy?) On the other hand I am constantly surprised how patient he is in a lot of circumstances where I wouldn’t be as … uh… gracious. Like very stupid interviews with very stupid questions, strange requests, stressful situations with fans screaming at the top of their lungs at airports, even the Coriolanus stage door debacle. So it’s a bit funny that people judge him not on that behavior but on a rumor that – as you pointed out – doesn’t even fit the Coriolanus timetable.

        Edit: Oh, and Ellen, all I said is in regard to the rumors, not you. :-) Just wanted to make sure nobody gets a wrong impression.

    • icerose says:

      He has reputation for being very generous with his time and money and most actors etc who actually know him speak well of him.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        He does seem to maintain actual friendships with people he only worked with for a short period of time. That isn’t easy to do and is a sign of a remarkable person.

      • joe spider says:

        @ Ellen
        Rumours? First we’ve heard of those, perhaps somebody muckstirring? And they certainly don’t seem to have taken hold.

        And really, if the fans are causing problems for his co-stars or for the production he is perfectly within his rights to call them out.

      • Ellen says:

        Don’t blame me I don’t believe them either.
        Here’s the ER story http://redskye572.tumblr.com/post/83211010886

        I’ll have to dig for the other one on tumblr a bit. I remember reading it and thinking it was a load of tosh at the time.

        @Ellen, that’s hilarious. A bodyguard, and multiple mentions that the guy was short, to keep a watch on his temper. And who would have assigned that job to the short bodyguard? He had somebody with him because he had a head injury, and the hospital wouldn’t have released him without a minder, because he had a head injury. Those are the basic rules when you show up at an ER with a gash and bump on the top of your head. Love how the ever-accurate tumblr spins that basic rule of medical protocol into something else completely different.

        So…………

        “but apparently to act as buffer between other people and Tom’s awful temper. B told me that her colleagues said he was really rude, and bossy, and demanding.

        Supposedly a day or so after his hospital visit, he called the surgery hotline number that had been given specially to him, requesting someone to go to the Donmar Warehouse to give him a change of bandage, because it had gotten wet during the play. He also said that he’d give whoever comes 2 free tickets for Coriolanus. However, nobody went because a) it’s a surgery and they’re dealing with people who are dying and stuff, and b) it’s a cut on the forehead. Apparently he then threw a strop over the phone.”

        Not getting at you because I know you are only reporting. but:

        What a load of twaddle, a friend of a friend of…..

        Tom’s awful temper – the one we have never heard of before? More that he took him because they were afraid of concussion.

        What surgery hotline, and nobody would expect anyone to come out to them with a plaster?

        And it happened after Coriolanus finished didn’t it, so that blows the whole story out of the water.

    • Isadora says:

      As he DID have some long-term relationships I’d say that some women actually managed to keep his interest longer than three months.

      And there is some awfully sweet story about him somewhere that he ditched a very important audition in the last minute to visit his then-girlfriend in Paris. Which sounds stupid to my ears, but still… I guess the girls swoon over this.

    Just read a report on Tumblr. It looks like Tom is really pissed off with the fans by now. Apparently they were so annoying yesterday and bothered him so much that at one point he became impatient and started making snide comments. I think they should close the place down. This man is one step from telling his fans off.

    • Isadora says:

      Where? *curious*

    • 'P'enny says:

      I bet this is just mummy fan-wafting again, there are quite a few fans that think he needs a nanny.

      Someone has said on Twitter, that Jim Beaver has reported back that all this good and there isn’t problems. And, according to more real reports there is security and barriers to keep an eye on things.

      And, they are not all Tommy fans, only 99.999% and he doesn’t have to sign. They got Mia out a different way, she didn’t want to bother with it all.

      And besides, OLLA get’s its Canadian release this weekend so publicity is good.

      • Intro Outro says:

        Benny nannies and Tommy nannies can get together and have a huge Tumblr-based or IMDB-based nanny party then!

        Oh wait. Benny nannies probably consider Hiddles an empty jump-up next to Cumby.

        They can have a huge nanny war then! I’d gladly watch ;D

      • Ellen says:

        ‘P’enny I love the word mummy and nanny fans this discribes them perfectly. I’ve said before that Tom would never tell them off. As for him snapping I think it was more the fact he start work really early and finished gone past midnight. Probably just wanted his bed.

        The fans knocking on trailer doors and hanging around on set are mostly found on Instagram and twitter. They also have friends that are involved with the film which makes it worse.
        Some fans are becoming extras too and keep leaking photos.
        I’m getting a bit fed up with Jim’s nose being firmly up Tom’s butt half the time. We know Tom’s a nice guy but I’m almost expecting a fan fic worthy of tumblr any day now from him. Hiddles has enough hassle from some fans, the last thing he needs is a cringing fanboy co-star

      • 'P'enny says:

        @Ellen
        Poor Jim, LOL, I like the fan-boy stuff. awww. Jim appears to have a background in Shakespeare, so it seems like it hasn’t just come out of nowhere. But, I must admit I can’t wait to hear the film interviews and the tittle-tattle of who and who didn’t got on. I can see Jim running down the corridor after him…going ,”Tom, to be or not to be. Lets read Shakespeare together, and Tom going, I’d rather rehearse my steamy scenes with the ladies…”

      • Make mine a double says:

        Can we televise the nanny war like WWF and make lots of money. :D

      • Sarah says:

        I agree with Ellen. The Jim Beaver twitter thing is a bit too much, especially when Tom explained last year why he is avoiding social media, that is, why he is no longer on twitter as often as he used to.

      • Intro Outro says:

        Oh? And how did he explain that? *newbie alert*

      • Isadora says:

        I don’t think the Jim Beaver stuff is that bad. It’s a difference if teenage girls praise Tommy’s virtues or if a fellow actor has something good to say about him. Also Jim Beaver has a very own fanbase (Supernatural and other stuff) and some of them aren’t even that familiar with Tom Hiddleston and looked The Hollow Crown up based on his FB stuff. Plus Jim is a writer and he frequently writes stuff on his FB page – set diaries, stuff he likes, mini-reviews etc. It’s not just that he is suddenly there and it’s all about Hiddles.

        The cynic in me is also aware that any (not so well known) actor that mentions Hiddles these days gets checked out by the fangirls, so he also rises his own profile.

        “They got Mia out a different way, she didn’t want to bother with it all.”

        Can you blame her, really? She had to deal with similar crap last year while filming Maps to the Stars (because of, y’know, Robert Pattinson).

    • joe spider says:

      Or perhaps he spoke to them rather firmly but politely as he did in LA in that garage that time?

      • Sarah says:

        Yes, Joe I tend to believe that is what happened. The report said that fangirls followed him and wouldn’t let him leave. At one point someone said something like ‘please just let him leave’. He was not happy about the whole thing, became impatient, tried to be polite but he snapped.

        Shortly after this report was published on Tumblr, someone opened an account just to ask the OP to delete the post.

      • 'P'enny says:

        @sarah

        well, that will be the last of Hiddles then for the rest of the external shoots, if that is true. They can’t be shooting there much longer. Anyway, God help him in London, if High Rise goes ahead and the off-set locations get leaked.

        In fact God help him when he get’s back home – full stop.

      • Ashdown says:

        This one may be true. I read the same thing on China’s weibo today, it was posted by the girl who shouted “just let him leave”. Apparently it all started well, then a bunch towards the end of the line surrounded Hiddles and wouldn’t let him leave even after he said he want to go.

        The poster said the girls who surrounded him kept on asking for photos, autograph and hugs, at some point he said “yeah why not, free hugs from me.” Not terribly snarky given the circumstance.

    • kaisei says:

      going by the latest photos on Torrilla of him holding a doll and smiling, I have a hard time believing it.

      • 'P'enny says:

        the sock monkey? that is a killer picture. looks like he is having fun, he was up to midnight signing for his fans. Wish people stop worrying over him. – big guy he can fend for himself here. it’s not Donmar.

    • Janeite says:

      So much gossip swirling around the fan encounters lately. I think that some of it is highly exaggerated and blown out of proportion. There are always going to be a few over-zealous fans but I suspect they are in the minority. It sounds like security on the set is pretty tight and that access to Hiddleston is controlled. I do think he likes to makes fans happy and appreciates the attention (some would say that he craves it, but that’s a whole other story) but I also think that he knows how to draw the line if it gets to be too much. I think he is more than capable of taking care of himself and anyone fretting over him is needlessly worrying.

      • Intro Outro says:

        Yes @Janeite! I also have a very strong feeling that under all this fluff and Shakespeare and earnest blue eyes there is a *very* steely rod of a character. It manifests itself through his work ethic, too, by the way. This guy is indeed more than capable to fend for himself.

        I am also pretty sure that Hiddles is that kind of person who you have to *really* make an effort to put out of temper. However, when that particular line is crossed… I wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end lol.
