Tom Hiddleston wears cowboy boots & carries a guitar at airports now

130551PCN_Tom05

Yay! I can’t believe I almost let my Friday work slip by without writing about these Tom Hiddleston photos. Yay!!! Tommy Hiddleston was photographed arriving at LAX last night. Let’s analyze the hell out of these photos, shall we?

*Tommy wears cowboy boots now. He’s not still “in character” or anything, this is who he is now. Lord Dragonfly enjoys the cowboy boots.

*Tommy looks so thin and tall in these photos. He lost weight to play Hank Williams in I Saw the Light, and his body hasn’t gone back to normal yet. I mean, he’s always been a tall, lanky bastard, but you can really tell that he’s lost some weight. Hopefully, the film is totally done now and he can eat some comfort food. I will eat some French fries in his honor.

*The guitar. Lord Dragonfly carries a guitar now. It must be HIS guitar too, not a prop guitar. While I’m not a full-on dragonfly, I believe I heard that Tom sort of knew how to play the guitar a little bit before the film, but he really practiced and tried to become a lot better to play Hank Williams. And now he has to go everywhere with his guitar.

*The hoodie! It looks comfortable. I would actually love to borrow that hoodie from him, but I doubt my boobs would fit.

*Is he wearing a fitted deep-V-neck ballet-type t-shirt under the hoodie? I see some chest fur buried in his man-cleavage. HOT.

*The sunglasses bug me.

*WHY IS HE IN LA?!

Okay, so is the analysis complete? Did I miss anything? I hope not. I’m so happy that Tommy has decided to gift us with new photos before the year’s end. And in case you missed it yesterday, he also gifted us with a song for Christmas. Lord Dragonfly is the best.

    Annnnd this is when we break out the fremdschämen.

  3. Jem says:

    Recently watched “The Hollow Crown” and he was so good in it, so sexy in it… Love me some Hiddleston…

  4. TotallyBiased says:

    SMILING TOM IS HECKA SMILING!
    And he’s had a pair of Ariats since Thor, I think.
    And there’s VIDEO out there somewhere of him at LAX in the hoodie and boots–get on it, Allegra! ;)
    Oh, and way to stay on top of our Dragonfly King, Kaiser–good work!

    • icerose says:

      he was given the Ariats by the people at the ranch who taught him how to ride for Thor 1.The boy can ride American style and true blue UK style thanks to WarHorse

    • Allegra says:

      TotallyBiased:

      Torrilla just posted the video that everybody was waiting.

      • TotallyBiased says:

        Thanks, Allegra! Now we just have to get all over TMZ so they will post the full English version.

  5. InvaderTak says:

    I’m going to wager that both were gifts from the people he worked with in Nashville. The jeans situation makes my Texas heart cry a little.

    • scarf girl says:

      Agreed. And those boots are not cheap. Wish they weren’t tucked in, but will take what I can get. Didn’t he play guitar as Adam in OLLA ( someone who has seen it, can confirm?)

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Yes, he did.

      • scarf girl says:

        Is it as good as I imagine in my head? I missed it in my theatre and it is high on my DVDs “want list”……but before purchasing (is it even available on DVD in States?) was curious to hear opinion-which I am sure has been voiced but although not new to clicking on a Hiddles story newer to the comment threads so forgive me if I am asking people to repeat themselves.

      • icerose says:

        see comment above -they were a present from the people who taught him to ride for THOR 1 .

      • Oh Hey says:

        The Ariats are well worn, probably the same ones he’s had for a long time. They’re the most comfortable boots I have, actually.

      • Gingerly says:

        @scarf girl, OLLAt is available on DVD, iTunes, netflix, etc. If you don’t mind a slow-paced film and you are familiar with Jim Jarmusch’s style, you may find OLLA lovely. Music is stunning and some scenes shoot in Detroit and Tangier are spectacular. Yet, some people feel that the film lacks dramatic conflict.

      • MtnRunner says:

        Scarf girl, I’ve rented it once through Amazon and twice through Redbox. If you look online, you can find which kiosks have it. If you use promo code 5656HGH, you get .50 off rentals through 12/31.

        I’ve actually watched it free both times due to promo codes. Its worth having an account and getting text alerts if you dont want to waste $$ on a movie you might not like.

    • Camil says:

      Maybe the guitar is a daddy Rodney’s gift

      • Lilacflowers says:

        He had a guitar but Rodney did give him one last spring when they started practicing.

      • icerose says:

        Rodney lent it to him but maybe he gave it to him as a present,
        In the video he has alot of luggage for a flying visit and I still think he might be on transit to home.

    • elo says:

      Invader, I came here to bare my sobbing Texas heart as well. It’s just all wrong. The jeans are too loose, the boots to shiny (who cares if they are expensive, they are ugly, and they are just Ariats). And alas they are tucked in. No No No NO!!! Those boots are as wrong as he is for the role of Hank.

      • JoAnn says:

        Well that escalated quickly…

      • icerose says:

        well I guess you will be happy to miss the film but not sure what his attire at an airport has to do with his acting and Hank.

      • jammypants says:

        Maybe wait til the film comes out first?

      • delorb says:

        LOL Well my Texas heart can find nothing wrong, except that they’re tucked in. I used to live in my boots when I was a kid. Even during the summer. They were comfortable, so what can I say? Perhaps he’s wearing them ironically and that’s why he tucked?

      • jammypants says:

        I’m pretty attached to my boots, but they’re tight around the ankle, so I just tend to let pants go over them. For boots a bit more loose, I just tuck my pants in.

      • InvaderTak says:

        I need more boots. I finally wore a hole that couldn’t be fixed in the soles of mine.

      • icerose says:

        @Delorb As a Texan your acceptance of his boot wear fashion is welcome. Have an exceptionally merry Christmas as a reward and this is meant sincerely

  6. TotallyBiased says:

    Not feeling the pants IN boots thing, but probs lot easier when putting boots on and off a lot (like when flying)

    • Senaber says:

      No way that’s easier for flying. Everyone knows that when you tuck loose jeans into boots you have to tuck the hems into your socks a little to get them to stay down.

      • mortal says:

        I really don’t get the questionsmarks about those pictures. I do think that he looks really good. I have no problem with guys tucking their jeans into boots, not at all. As for the sunglasses and the hoodie: ever thought about the fact that he simply didn’t want to be recognized? May be he just wanted to be left alone and he still managed to shake hands. Very polite. Other celebs would have told the guys to **** off probably. Or he was just so tired that he wanted to hide his eyes and the hair? He is human LOL He doesn’t look like a poser at all to me here. And why should I buy new jeans if I will gain weight in the weeks again? I totally understand him.

  7. Esthetix says:

    Idk…I miss Tom as much as anyone, but these pics are a boner killer. The headphones around the neck, the sunglasses, hoodie up, jeans tucked halfway into cowboy boots. Too much going on. He looks like a poser!

    • scarf girl says:

      I swear to you, almost every guy on a Nashville to LA flight looks like that. It is worth a long hour layover just to people watch)

    • icerose says:

      he looks good to me-I love the I wear what makes me feel comfortable look l and screw fashion trends. Alot of Brits are like that anyway. And I always go baggy on long haul flights.

    • MtnRunner says:

      Hoodies don’t do anything for me. Wipe that smile off his face, add some facial hair and he’s the Unabomber.

      • JoAnn says:

        Yes! Hoodies make me think of the unabomber. And loose jeans tucked into cowboy boots are what my five year old son wears…along with a cowboy hat and a holster with fake guns! LOL.

        That killer smile goes a long way but my god he needs a woman to look after him.

      • GildedCage says:

        You mean, mom, JoAnn, not woman.

    • Josa says:

      He didn’t arrive last night, it’s the afternoon, see the daylight outside. Hoodies covering the bed hair probably. He looks like a mess tbh, but still smiling like a loon.

  8. Lilacflowers says:

    Any ideas why he is in Los Angeles? He did play guitar before. During one of the interviews for Tha Avengers, he played a song with Hemsworth and one of the other guys. He also talked in an interview years ago about how he was given a pair of cowboy boots after learning to ride a horse.

  9. Dotty says:

    You tuck your jeans into your boots when you’re in a pasture full of cowshit or other ugliness that you can’t stand to have caked onto your jeans for the day. (I live on a ranch in Wyoming.) Maybe LAX is full of bullshit to him!? I could see if he were entering an airport, for ease of TSA screening. But arriving? makes no sense and is highly distracting.

    • icerose says:

      personally I cannot care if he is wearing them in or out. I tuck my trousers in if it is raining. Maybe he is just loved those boots and wants to show them off -why not.

  10. Domino says:

    He’s had these boots forever and has worn them for photoshoots too. I love that he’s showing them off now! This character has taken its toll on him, I hope he goes back to his old self soon! ;(

  11. CH says:

    He looks like a douchebag with those glasses on at the airport. I don’t know – think I’m over him.

    • TotallyBiased says:

      LAX is the kind of place to wear shades, though, esp on a red eye flight. His outfit spells comfort and ‘oops, wasn’t expecting paps’ to me. I don’t like the boots outside the pants either, but it is easier to take ‘em on and off. (Like when napping in those first class seats)
      And wasn’t he seen in London on Tuesday or Wednesday or something? He might have just gotten off of the looong flight.

    • Leah says:

      I’ve thought I’ve been over him a half dozen times then he does something to pull me back in. The charming cute little rat bastard!!

  12. Lilacflowers says:

    Thomas, finish up whatever it is you are doing out there quickly and come home. Roast potatoes waiting. And Guinness. And pudding.

  13. **sighs** says:

    What is with all the complaining? He looks adorbs. I don’t care where his jeans are tucked. He looks comfy and scruffy. You get it, Tom.

    • jammypants says:

      Yea I didn’t care that he looks comfy. I would too! Just traveled recently myself, and let me tell you, I was not wearing heels and fitted clothes. It was all about comfort for an 8 hour travel day.

      • **sighs** says:

        I am all about jeans and hoodies on planes. And flip flops. Oh yeah, I’m that girl.

      • Oh Hey says:

        Ever since I saw a docu on plane crashes and how fire melts synthetic clothes, I dress to RUN when I fly, jeans, sneaks, comfy warm top, in case I need to move fast, because you never know. I think he looks just fine, obviously failing at the ‘hoody and sunglasses’ disguise because he smiled and gave the game away, but I wouldn’t say no to that. NUH UH..

    • icerose says:

      and at least he comes with a killer smile

  14. ellesbelles says:

    I have no more veins to inject in which to get high off of this man. I’m in full on nanny mode and don’t even care. DO NOT CARE!

    Heart esploded, brain short-circuited, veins collapsed. You’re going to find me in the Hiddles crack den in case anyone is looking for me

    • **sighs** says:

      We will send Sherlock to find you. I’m sure he’s not busy.

      • ellesbelles says:

        I would actually be ok with that! I’m an Otterphile as well, but I’ve overdosed myself on tom to a pleasurable catatonic state. I’m not complaining!

      • Camil says:

        @ellesbelles
        “I’ve overdosed myself on tom to a pleasurable catatonic state”

        Love that. You’re living a mystical experience xD.

      • ellesbelles says:

        Lol @ Camil I get my kicks from audio over visual. The mans voice does things to my sensory receptors. Then you add the smile and I’m done. Take in to account that I’ve been watching his films and shows and interviews and I’ve gotten myself into an incredibly buzzed state. A high without the side effects

  15. Green Is Good says:

    He looks comfortable and I still would!

  16. Sunshine says:

    I want to like this because I love him, but I can’t. My HiddleHubby, FOR WHY???

  17. Happy21 says:

    I don’t usually soon over him and very rarely read the posts about him but I had to check it out when it said he was wearing cowboy boots AND carrying a guitar.

    Yeah, the boots with the jeans tucked in wasn’t what I was expecting, however, he looks freakin’ HOT here. Wow. Me thinks I may have to become a fangirl.

    Maybe someone could explain the Dragonfly stuff…I don’t understand…

  18. Nikki says:

    Guys, RELAX! He cant look perfect every second of every day! He’s still smiling and looks content! He’s an actor! He prob is still in character in his mind. I’ve seen people dressed way worse at airports.

    I still got your back, Tom

    • TotallyBiased says:

      Thumbs up!

    • Josa says:

      I don’t think he’s still in character, but Nashville certainly rub off on him. If he came off the plane looking immaculate, there will be people complaining that no one looks so neat coming off the plane and that he’s too vain. Tom is Tom, he’s never shown much fashion sense in the casual wear category, but the lanky body type can do no wrong in my eyes.

  19. Allons-y Alonso says:

    What’s wrong with dressing for comfort on a plane? The man may do boots, sunnies a a guitar at the airport but I do green beats headphones, running tights and my glow in the dark runners. Your move, Mr Hiddleston!

    • et alors says:

      I agree. I think he looks like a cute mess. I wear flip flops pretty much every time I fly, even on flights from SFO to LGA in December, so I can’t judge. And the headphones are always around my neck for those times when I need to drown out the loud talkers on my flights.

  20. Freebunny says:

    And I thought BC was too much….

    • Lilacflowers says:

      He is. BC thread is over there. Tom’s just walking through an airport, nothing more.

      • Freebunny says:

        Yeah, with a guitar and cowboy boots.
        “Look at me!!! Look at me!!! And look at my new movie role.”
        BC is a fame-whore, like you have no problem pointing, and Tom Hiddleston is an other one.

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        I agree with Freebunny. He is aware that people have doubts about his singing ability, so you can be certain he will want to be seen with his guitar as much as possible. He will be pushing HW and the work he did for that role a lot in the coming months.

      • TommyAnnE says:

        BUNNY!

      • Lilacflowers says:

        I tend to cut people slack over what they wear on planes, so I’m pretty sure I haven’t commented on BC’s travel attire or linked it to fame-whoring, FreeBunny. Also, none of the musicians I know ever check instruments.

      • Freebunny says:

        Well, I can comment, BC travel attire is tragic and TH’s isn’t better.
        He just remembers his fangirls his movie role and do (very) early promotion, nothing wrong per se.
        As for checking instruments, band members check instruments and TH isn’t a professional musician as far as I know.

      • icerose says:

        @Lilacflowers he is in the carousal area and if you do have to check in instruments which is unlikely 1st class they go a valuable/fragile and you pick them up at a special area in the carousal area.
        I personally do not understand why people are making fuss over a guitar, loose jeans and pair of nice boots. Coming out of an airport in comfort clothes which he has been wearing the whole time he has been in Tennessee and Louisiana hardly counts as fame whoring
        I am curious to know how paps get into the carousal area which is usually before customs or whether it was just a fan who recognised him.

      • koko says:

        @icerose I too am curious how did paps get to the carousal area of LAX? If it was just a fan, how forward were they, one photo wasn’t enough? Not fond of the jeans in boots but at least it wasn’t the white dock shoes from NI shoot. UGH.

      • M.A.F. says:

        @koko-any one can be in the arrival area. That is where the paps are and where all the celebrities get photographed at LAX.

      • Josa says:

        Paps stationed at LAX luggage area to wait for faces they can recognize to photo. There’s a lot of famous people flying in to LA all the time.

        I don’t know if his attire screams look at me. Personally, if I want people to look at me, I will dress nicer and tidy myself up. Remember what he looks like getting off the plane in S. Korea last year? I thought he looks like a mess here, a very hot mess mind you. I don’t know why anyone wears sunglasses indoor, except my parents who’s very sensitive to any kind of light. To give him benefit of a doubt, maybe he just woke up.

      • jammypants says:

        “Coming out of an airport in comfort clothes which he has been wearing the whole time he has been in Tennessee and Louisiana hardly counts as fame whoring”

        I agree Icerose. He wore the exact same clothes for 3 months. He left with gifts from the film (ala geetar)

      • Oh Hey says:

        Question for the guitar critics. WTF is he supposed to do with it if he’s bringing it home? Of course he has to carry it, otherwise how would he get it home? If he has been given a gift or kept one from the film, he has to get home somehow, so jeez, stop complaining about him being a poseur when he’s doing what he has to do to get his belongings back home. Practical, much?

      • OhDear says:

        Re: boots – When I travel, I usually wear the bulkier items to save space packing-wise. So maybe he wore the boots because they take up more space in a suitcase/bag and that they’re easier for TSA purposes?

        That being said, in terms of fashion sense, I’ve seen (and admittedly worn) a lot worse.

      • Oh Hey says:

        OhDear, exactly, wearing bulkier items is far easier and boots would be easier to slip on and off through security than sneaks with laces. Gosh, can we dissect his outfit any further?

      • icerose says:

        at Josa I wear very fine sunglasses in airports ,tube because bright lights and some kinds of heating dries my eyes out and I have issues producing tears.

      • Josa says:

        @icerose, that’s the issue both my parents have. I have very dry eyes too, especially when I just woke up. That’s why I thought maybe he just woke up. I also think he realized he looks a bit like a mess, watching that video gives the vibe that he’s hiding behind the sunglasses and hoodie. See he tried to wave goodbye to the paps when they got too close, and that pap probably give out a hand for a handshake, so that wave turned into shaking the pap’s hand.

        Anything else we should analyze? I think we’ve covered everything.

      • icerose says:

        okay to clarify from the video. As he was leaving the carousal area after the bit with the German pap he picked up the guitar which was on top of a load of luggage someone was pushing for him which seems quite understandable to me, So no big plan to walk off the plane looking like a country and western singer.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Freebunny, my brother is a musician and they would have to amputate his dominant arm before his stratocaster went in the cargo hold.

      • Gingerly says:

        If the guitar is the same one that Rodney lent to Tom for the film, which is Gibson J45, its price is about $2000. You can see the logo of the brand “Gibson” on the hardshell case. Practically you had better carry a rather pricey instrument yourself rather than let others handle it.

        And if the guitar is a gift from Rodney who has hosted him for three months, I guess he will carry it carefully regardless its price.

      • Oh Hey says:

        Tom actually does play guitar, he also kept one from OLLA, so it’s not like he’s posing with one, maybe he kept it, maybe he needs it for photos (could be why he’s in LA, with all that luggage, maybe costumes), or maybe it’s his and its going home with him. Hardly fame whoring to carry your luggage through the airport.

      • Allegra says:

        Oh Hey:

        And someone from Crimson Peak said Tom played guitar and sang a Hank W´s song
        in their Wrap party. Also , a fan spotted Tom leaving a restaurant (The Jamaica Inn) with a guitar while filming HR in Northern Ireland.

    • icerose says:

      He has had the boots since Thor 1 and there are plenty of pictures of him with the on -and he may need the guitar in LA -if it is valuable and it well may be he probably took it in as hand luggage or he had just picked it up from fragile/valuable items pickup -like I use to with mine, If you spend a lot of time in airports seeing guys and girls with guitars is not that uncommon.

    • jammypants says:

      Being laid back is never too much.

  21. lunchcoma says:

    It’s not as if we didn’t already know that he tends to dress like a dork when he’s not on the red carpet or in character. Once cowboy boots are broken in, they can be really comfortable, and I’ll excuse a lot in the name of comfort at an airport.

    • jammypants says:

      I have a pair or Ariats riding boots. They look nothing like cowboy boots, more like chelsea’s. Comfortable as can be! They hurt my ankles before I broke into them, but now, they are the best.

      • icerose says:

        he said they were special because they were a gift from the ranch where he learnt to ride and he had enjoyed it so much.

      • Oh Hey says:

        I have Ariat paddock boots – comfy and *waterproof*. I stepped in a puddle up to my ankles and they didn’t even get wet. Still want some cowboy boots tho…

    • Lilacflowers says:

      He’s probably down a shoe size too and they may be one of the few things he can keep in. Also, if he were dressed up for flying, people would rip him for that. The guitar will travel with him until he gets it home.

  22. Miss Jupitero says:

    NO to the boots. NOOOOO to the baggy pants.

    Get a new t-shirt. Eat a sandwich.

    Otherwise, yes to guitar.

    LA! Could this be Marvel? Is he not going home for the holidays?

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Marvel movie stuff films in London these days, unless he’s doing a spot on Agents of SHIELD.

    • lunchcoma says:

      It could be Marvel, but it could also be Legendary, or a meeting with his American agent. I’d be surprised if he wants to spend Christmas in LA if he doesn’t have to, though! It might just be a quick business trip before flying home.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        I suspect that’s the case. He has said in the past that he makes a point of being home for Christmas. Why change that now, especially when he has been away from home for so long.

      • icerose says:

        he has a lot of luggage with him which makes me think he is on transit back home after filming and making a short stop to meet with someone.

      • lunchcoma says:

        That makes sense, icerose. It also explains why he’s hauling around his guitar.

    • icerose says:

      Tom always wears loose jeans when he is not in smart mode and the V t shirts are nothing new-it is part of his charm for me

  23. et alors says:

    Ha! Tom “Barrel of Sunshine” Hiddleston made it to the NY Post’s Page Six:

    Tom Hiddleston is a barrel of sunshine, Rihanna surprises fans in Paris, Kate Hudson bonds with Nicole Richie, Laverne Cox makes a statement and more.

    The caption on his photo reads “A cheery Tom Hiddleston carries a guitar through LAX on Thursday.”

    • Allegra says:

      Glad they “gave” him a nice caption.
      Can you imagine this?
      “Pals Tom Hiddleston and Nicole Richie hang out at the People Magazine Awards in Beverly Hills on Thursday.

      By the way, Orlando Bloom was at LAX airport yesterday too.

  24. Ratherbeme says:

    What an amazing smile.

    • ellesbelles says:

      I got a few seconds in and had to stop. I need my concentration at work today. Getting distracted by the smile would be the end of me

    • Allegra says:

      Torrilla found the video and the source(i think is a german site).
      http://www.focus.de/kultur/videos/tom-hiddleston-wird-er-zu-superman_id_4358596.html
      Since I couldn´t understand a single word, I put the little article on google translator. And it says:
      If it is to Superman?
      Tom Hiddleston is known for his role as a villain “Loki” in the “Thor” movies.
      Now the actor has revealed he enthuses about a very different heroes – namely Superman. So we see the British soon in Metropolis?

    • **sighs** says:

      In the video it looks like he doesn’t have the guitar at one point, so maybe he did check it.

      Geez, you guys are pulling me way too far into the hiddlesverse. I’m trying not to get too far in, so when he does something massively stupid, a la Bendy, it won’t be a hard fall.

      I’m just going to look at pretty pictures and see some of his movies and leave it at that……

      I hope.

      • ellesbelles says:

        Yeah thats how I started. Now I manage a 4gig cloud of voice and video recordings from him, and I have a serious addiction to the sound of his voice and his smile. Sooooo run now or get comfy

        Eta, I dont tumblr or twitter or anything like that so im in my own safer cocoon of crazy. I can really justify anything

      • **sighs** says:

        I’ve already been into him for awhile, Ive just been measured in my exposure. But he’s been so smiley and cute lately.

        *resists urge to scour youtube*
        😳

      • ellesbelles says:

        Doooooo it! I opened youtube yesterday and my whole page of recommended videos were of tom.

        Im not ashamed

      Good god ❤️❤️❤️ benny this is how you do it 😃 u may be knackered inside & desperate for food but you still merry on tea & airport food. Have to say I travel in a mess and look like poo after arrived lol

      • icerose says:

        and he shakes hands with the guy who is asking a pretty silly question about whether he would like to play superman,

      • Allegra says:

        Do not worry because you are not the only one who prefer comfort over beauty (or style) when traveling. And in the long-haul flights there is nothing better than traveling with casual clothes: running shoes, a T-shirt and jeans a little wider.

    • TotallyBiased says:

      The video guy asking him questions is a TMZ stringer. The german site got “non-USA” rights to use the vid, and overlaid it in German. If you listen carefully, you can hear the TMZ guy ask him if he would ever want to play Superman in the movies. Tom replies that he’s too old. The TMZ guy says he loves Tom’s work, and they shake hands. Tom sounds very tired, maybe slightly grouchy but unwilling to take it out on vid guy even though the question was rather stupid.
      The video listing that refers to non-USA only is here (you can only see the video if you are media and can sign in–it’s the link I posted in the last comment thread.)

      • Allegra says:

        I think that guy was up to something, because he knows that Tom works for marvel and Superman “belongs” to DC. Maybe he thought that Tom was in LA because of that rumor about The sandman movie.

    He looks adorable!!!! Probably working on sound post production for the movie. Here are the full photo gallery. I hope no one ever critiques some of you all the way you do him….lord have mercy.

    All I wanted for Christmas/Birthday was Tom – and that stealth jerk snuck out of Nashville…

    Although LA is not en route to London from Nashville. Has to he a reason in there somewhere. Christmas in Hawaii with the GF?

  28. lindy79 says:

    Lord help me…i like it even with the tucked jeans. I also have those sunglasses. His sunglasses game is A+ compared to Benedicts eye orthopaedic wear.
    I think its the top half selling it. The low neck line and hoodie. He has a lovely neck.

    Yep…

  29. 'P'enny says:

    And there is a new official Crimson Peak picture on the loose, see twitter, same mag as the one that featured Jess C, i think. Anyway, stop it Tom! this is too much for the fan base now. Singing, paps and now C/Peak pic where he looks five stone fatter than he is now. LOL

    *falls over*

    • icerose says:

      wow what an amazing antiquated blue jacket. You can actually see where it is worn on the shoulder and yes he does look 3 stone heavier.

    • Camil says:

      LoL when i saw the picture my first thought was “Oh, by the gods, he has lost so much weight that I find him a little chubby in this image”

      Looks adorable, my dear and dangerous Sir Thomas Sharpe *0*

    • Gingerly says:

      I loved the color. It looks similar to the color of Chastain’s dress. Wow, he totally looks like a geogeous Gothic romance character. Tom is really built for period drama though he wants to diversify his roles.

    • TotallyBiased says:

      Someone on a FB group said something about the picture being stretched (to fit the layout?) and that makes sense to me. Otherwise it doesn’t look realistic!

    • Gracie says:

      Maybe a new post tomorrow, yeah?

    • Intro Outro says:

      I absolutely love the in-character look on his face there. Very.. reserved and slightly arrogant and appraising. No Tom shining through :D

  30. Maria says:

    Perhaps he’s in LA to do the recording sessions for the movie or would he have done that already? Hmmmmm

  31. ellesbelles says:

    I’m taking a break from work. Just came back to get another fix.

    Hello gorgeous.

  32. Maria says:

    It just occurred to me that if they wanted someone to play Fred Astaire, he might be able to pull that off.

    @RodneyJCrowell reacting to popular video w/@twhiddleston and Mono -

  34. ellesbelles says:

    Tom… tom.. please can you take a break from being so… tom-ish? Just for like a day. Maybe a few hours. See, I’m having technical difficulties functioning like an adult because there are so many photos of you doing that smile thing, and the eyes and the breathing. I mean keep breathing of course, but a girl needs a rest! And then you’re all gentlemanly and you always apologize for being so f*cking lovely.

    I was FINE four weeks ago. I barely knew who you were. And you had to be all Loki and Prince Hal. Now its not what movie should I watch, its what TOM movie should I watch.

    I hate you a little right now. No, I don’t mean that.

    *puts on unrelated* don’t judge me

    • Darya says:

      It’s alright darling, we’ve all been there.

    • Gracie says:

      I picked up the theatre awards souvenir supplement from the news stands yesterday. I now have a full page of Tommy sitting on the windowpane, a drink in hand, looking all sleek and sexy, staring back at me… (Mind you, last night on the tube, some woman was flicking through the pages next to me and I caught her staring at Tommy’s for the longest time. Haha!)

    • Anne tommy says:

      I have no idea why I like these airport photos so much, I just do. Don’t care if his jeans were tucked into stiletto heels frankly – Thank you for the posting.
      I was in one of the branches of Calendar Club, which is a UK based chain of shops I think,they have a hiddles Calendar, which I did not buy cos I think someone has bought it for me as a present. Worth looking for if u r UK based.

    • Gracie says:

      Does his hair in these photos not remind anyone 2011 comic-con hair?

      • Oh Hey says:

        He probably has to keep it that way for the Jan Marvel shoots, whatever those may be. I bet he can’t wait to have his own hair color back. I would find that disorienting too.

    • Josa says:

      The paps were at LAX to see him off too.
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Agf_UJ19p1I
      Looks like he shaked the man’s hand at the check-in counter. :)
      A bit surprise that there’s no pics of him arriving at Heathrow. I was sure that some eager fans will check BA’s schedule and show up at airport waiting for him to come off.

  35. MaximeduCamp says:

    God how I love a tall, lanky man (but I hope he has someome to feed him up back home).

    Anyway, must have been a quick business trip. Just saw pics of him (from a fan) at the British Airways counter at LAX from tonight (different outfit, leather coat, blue button down shirt, jeans, boots (jeans not tucked in), so I assume he’s finally headed home for a well-deserved break. I can’t even imagine how good he’ll feel getting to sleep in his own place for a bit.

    • TotallyBiased says:

      He can’t go ANYWHERE, can he?
      http://instagram.com/p/w0HHfdu16H/
      How can people tell if his jeans are in or out? The luggage blocks the view of his feet.
      Or are there other pictures out there?

    • koko says:

      Well I’m glad he’s headed back home for Christmas, there’s no place like home for the holidays.
      Merry Christmas Tom.
      Merry Christmas everyone!
      :)

    • Lilacflowers says:

      @TotallyBiased, there are more pictures on Twitter.

    • Oh Hey says:

      I am such a homebody I find it very disorienting to be away for just a few days, how he does it for six or seven months at a time I don’t know – he has a great job but I would think that would get very old after a while.

      • jammypants says:

        I used to think that way, but I got really ill this year, so I left my home state for a month and worked remotely, holed up in my sister’s house. I forgot about home during the duration of my stay. I do have to say though, once I got home, my health got SO much better and I realized I missed it.

  36. Oh Hey says:

    Does anyone recognize his headphones? I’ve been looking for some like that, the individual ear buds fall out and drive me nuts…

  37. icerose says:

    So in the article in on Crimson Peak Del Toro gave Cumberbatche’s reason for quitting was because he has played to many characters like Sharpe before. Interesting.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Curious as to how he thinks Billy Bulger, Hamlet, and Richard III are any different than the other characters he has played. Unless he totally missed everything there is to know about Billy Bulger and interprets those two Shakespeare plays quite differently than I do. But I really do not like discussing him on threads about Tom. At all.

    • 'P'enny says:

      really?

      so why the big secret? why Benedict did you not just come out and say that then?

      besides, what characters has he played where he is wearing Victorian garb and plays a bad-guy with charm? i must research his back catalogue because i really want to see this. to me, it sounds like an excuse, he wanted out and for whatever reason and i respect that, but i am not buying that reason.

    • jammypants says:

      Like…? In the end though, didn’t Del Toro say they slightly rewrote the character to fit Tom more? It’s from a much earlier interview, close to when they first cast him.

    • Gracie says:

      This is a little confusing. So, if BC has played too many roles like Sharpe before, what does that say about this character’s storyline?

      • ellesbelles says:

        I think its more of a cop out excuse Gracie, because thinking back overs Bens work, I cant think of any roles that sound remotely close to what del Toro has described this role as being. I love Ben but much of his work has been perpetually playing similar characters

      • icerose says:

        It is from the recent interview in the Total Film which was done when they were filming so that could be why he raised it, But as P’enny said why all the secrecy about it and just how much had Shape’s part changed in the final script.

    • icerose says:

      @Lilacflower -I only raised it because this is a film Tom is in and there has been some speculation about it and it is indirectly relevant to Toms take on the role. It is the first time Del Toro has come out with any reason why Ben ended up pulling out and I was curious as to why he should raise it now at the beginning of the PR trail. .If someone wants to raise it on a Ben thread that is fine with me but I did not want it to become a big contentious issue.
      I was not aware of him playing anything which directly links to this type of role. They both read the same script and even if they altered say to be the younger brother and added additional scenes the essence of the role would have been in the original script.

      • lunchcoma says:

        icerose: I suspect Del Toro brought it up because he was asked. I don’t think this response is all that more revealing than anything that’s been said before. My guess has always been that Cumberbatch didn’t like the script as it was at that stage or that he and Del Toro simply didn’t work together all that well. Those are things that aren’t really a huge deal if someone can be replaced easily enough, but also don’t look good for anyone to state outright as the media turns that sort of thing into a feud.

    I finally returned OLLA to Red Box today with kind of a heavy heart. I didnt want to, but I didnt want to keep paying. That’s my cue to hunt it down for a reasonable price online

    Aw, he’s so adorable. Cannot resist the Hiddleston, especially when he looks dorky

    • Allegra says:

      Ladies:

      A fan just found a video with Tom on LAX airport yesterday.
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Agf_UJ19p1I#t=10

      • icerose says:

        interesting that when asked about Sony he says no one needs to know my thoughts about that. To be fair it was not he right place to start throwing out comments. It was a brilliantly neutral answer because he avoided upsetting the pap guy but left you knowing he had thought about it.
        He seems to be getting papped a lot more at airports -usually he can slip back and forward without two much fuss.
        The guy was even going on about a film he had never been in??

      • MtnRunner says:

        He’s so nice to the annoying cameraman. I’d be fighting the urge to shove him out of the way. I don’t know how these celebs do it.

      • icerose says:

        and we know now he does not check his guitar.

      • **sighs** says:

        He’s so polite. And skinny. I made Christmas cookies today, Tommy, have a few.

        Airports are the great equalizer, aren’t they?

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        I agree that this is hardly the place to ask such questions, but neutral is exactly where Tom prefers to be. I wonder if he will ever address this in an interview?

      • Oh Hey says:

        I was shocked the first time I heard the audio from a pap attack – good god those people are RUDE, obnoxious, loud, really inappropriate questions, just screaming and screaming at them – I would consider that a form of assault, they all seem to ignore it but I would find it traumatizing to be screamed at like that and have stupid personal questions asked – yuck, why don’t we have laws against that kind of treatment? It’s inhumane.

      • M.A.F. says:

        It seems he wasn’t in LA for every long-barely a day?

        And it’s not a fan video, it was done by X17 which is up there with TMZ.

      • Oh Hey says:

        I would be very surprised if Tom or any actor not personally affected by the Sony mess would comment or criticize lest the get themselves blackballed for having the nerve to say anything in the press.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Damn, he looks hot in that video. He’s right not to comment on Sony. He’s not involved and nobody knows all the facts. Better to say nothing than to say something that could come back to bite him employment-wise; it is just not professional. Even most of those who are involved/discussed in the emails are remaining silent. The contents of the emails were unprofessional. Nothing beneficial is added by responding to them in public.

      • icerose says:

        @Miss Jupitero My interpretation is that he does have an opinion but does not feel the need to share it and I can understand that. He knows it will be flashed all over the press and chooses not to add to the general flurry of opinion.Quite often when there is a flurry of opinions on a topic another voice just becomes repetitious or attention seeking.
        My experience is that wise people can be quite selective about where and when to give opinions and when it will have maximum benefit.

      • 'P'enny says:

        He won’t say anything about Sony, because Sony Classics is a major distributor in the states for indie films. And, Sony Classics distributed OLLA in the states.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        He actually seemed a bit annoyed with that question. There was a setting of the jaw and an eye flash before he answered. Everybody does not have to weigh in with an opinion.

        He also towers above just about everyone he passes.

      • Josa says:

        Simply not the right place and time to discuss Sony, especially with paparazzi. He’s right to not let the paps engage him in any discussion. Don’t know why some people insist him or any actor should share their opinions on everything with the world.

      • lunchcoma says:

        He looked a bit annoyed, and I don’t blame him. It’s an annoying question. Midnight in Paris and Only Lovers Left Alive were distributed by Sony Pictures Classics, but those were acquisitions. He’s never been in anything made by Sony, Pascal, or Rudin or worked with Rogen or Franco. So he doesn’t have the motive to defend the people involved like George Clooney does, and I can’t imagine him wanting to wade into a fight that doesn’t involve him by offering criticism either.

        And maybe he also understands that it’s easy for people in the public eye to look bad when commenting on complicated issues with lots of competing interests and kinds of wrongdoing, especially when you’re being asked for a soundbite in an airport.

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        I have no doubt that he has an opinion. But I doubt very much that he will ever express it. It is not his style at all. I’m not criticizing– his primary goal in talking to the press if to publicize his films and attract fans, and he is expert at this and very good at saying a great deal while avoiding anything that could possibly be construed as a real opinion on anything controversial. I like the look on his face. It said plenty to me.

    • Allegra says:

      That guy is nightmare! It seems that he spent the entire day at LAX airport and asked the same question to Orlando Bloom, Keanu Reeves and Lily Collins. I think Tom coped very well with the situation. Unfortunately I can not say the same about Keanu or Orlando because both seemed a bit lost, having to deal with fans, autograph hunters, photographers and that paparazzo.

  40. ellesbelles says:

    I was looking at the CP photo they released, and I realize he has several layers of clothing on, plus hes heavier, but am I the only one used to his skinny look, and the normal weight is weird? Perhaps its from seeing the fan pics and pap shots of him being thinner, plus watching OLLA and some of his earlier stuff where he is thinner.

    I’m about to watch the Pirate Fairy. With a few beers because why not?

    • Oh Hey says:

      I’m “used” to it but I don’t like it, although I thought he looked pretty healthy yesterday. I like Brick Shithouse Tom, myself, she says with absolutely no shame whatsoever…..

      • ellesbelles says:

        oh I mean Coriolanus Tom is critical mass for me, but I’m just more used to skinny tom for the moment.

      • Oh Hey says:

        I thought he looked pretty ripped in OLLA, not musclebound but nice definition. Not that I spent a lot of time looking at him half naked in OLLA. No, I didn’t do that.

      • ellesbelles says:

        I may or may not have noticed the muscles. May or may not have. I made it through half the pirate fairy and said nope. I did spend a good amount of time with the flaunt gifs. more than was probably good for my well being

      • TotallyBiased says:

        Please tell me you made it to the Frigate that Fies!

      • Gracie says:

        Sounds like you ladies had a great night with muscles!Tom and flaunt!Tom :)

      • ellesbelles says:

        @TB I did! I gave up a little bit after that part. It’s a lovely kids film, but me sat by myself trying to watch was a little ridiculous

        @Gracie I blame OH, who linked me to a bunch of gifs and then I was pretty much done lol

    • M.A.F. says:

      He also had all that muscle from Coriolanus when he shot CP.

      • 'P'enny says:

        for the first few weeks, then it seemed to drop off him fast during the night shoots, i have a feeling that watching this film is going to be fun his weight will be up and down a lot. Thankfully, with Victorian garb he will get away with it.

  41. MtnRunner says:

    Ok, a bit off topic, but Tommy related. I was reading some old TH posts and saw that top-commented post in 2013 was this one with a grand total of 241 comments:

    http://www.celebitchy.com/326497/tom_hiddleston_asked_about_his_girlfriend_says_its_nothing_to_write_home_about/

    This current post, that has nothing but pics at LAX, already has 260 comments — not a lot in comparison to the Bendy post-engagement posts. I would be surprised if any other actor is featured in the top 10 this year. Did anyone else have a post that had more than 500 comments? Ben had at least 8 in the past 2 months…

    • ellesbelles says:

      Though we are small, we are vocal! :-)

    • jammypants says:

      The one where he went on vacation, back in May/June got some high numbers (due to people speculating his relationship status).

    • MtnRunner says:

      I didn’t start reading posts until late summer/early fall. Did anyone else do something as uber-commentworthy this year as Ben’s Oscar engagement?

      • Gracie says:

        Ha! I love how you called it Oscar engagement. Like no shade, it’s a fact. But that’s what he had done. :) I wasn’t on CB site that far back. It’s just mostly the picture from a restaurant or something, not all that commentworthy at all, because when he was asked his relationship status later, he said ‘nothing to write home about’.

      • Gracie says:

        @Mtnrunner, I told a lie. I just realised. That’s what happens trying to comment when just woken up all crusty eyed. You probably know this anyway. Wimbledon final – rumours – he tells Elle or some magazine ‘when this is something to write home about I hope I would be able to talk about t’ – holiday picture months later. My impression was a lot of comments were directed at what he told the magazine gave off the impression there was nothing serious but later the holiday picture came out. (I could be wrong but that’s how I understood the situation.)

      • MtnRunner says:

        Yeah, I read all the backstory with that one and didn’t see what the big deal was about. I haven’t seen the holiday pic you referenced, but even if it was JA, I presume they were just fwb. Pretty much what I’d expect, given how much he is gone filming and promoting. No time for devoting to a serious relationship, even if he wanted one. I don’t expect this year to be any different.

      • jammypants says:

        I never got the big deal either. Yay, he has sex, like pretty much almost everyone on the planet? Same with Ben. Like, who cares if he got engaged? I don’t even care if it is PR. I guess in the big picture, it’s all so harmless and just entertaining.

      • MtnRunner says:

        jammypants, it’s unfortunate that guys like Tom can’t just date or even hang out with female friends like normal people without it becoming a huge, friggin’ deal for the stans. Going to a tennis match with someone or going on vaca with the same person doesn’t make her a girlfriend. I assume he’s not attached to anyone in particular until he says he is or at least seen glued at the hip with someone over and over again. As long as he doesn’t act weird (like that other Brit), I don’t have much of an opinion on the matter.

        Since I’ve already been snatched up, he’ll have to settle for 2nd best anyway… :-)

    • Allegra says:

      Short video – Tom with a fan at LAX airport:
      http://instagram.com/p/w1v-Nwv292/

      • Oh Hey says:

        It looks like she ambushed him, he never even slowed down. How can people be so rude..

      • ellesbelles says:

        this ^^ the more i see these vids and pics the more uncomfortable I feel. Actual legitimate selfies are sweet, but secret shots of him checking in or getting ambushed by paps and fans is upsetting. Leave the man alone. Its one thing to sit a safe distance away and share a mutual interest, its another to invade.

      • 'P'enny says:

        I’m sure he’s cool about it – this pap thing at lax is new for him. The guitar has got him the attention he normally slips through without a nod . But I do wonder if he realises how hot he looks esp hoodie-tom❤️

      • icerose says:

        I think Tom is able to rise above paps and fans it and keep smiling.

      • MtnRunner says:

        Those boots were made for walkin’… it looks like he didn’t break pace and she was left getting the scraps of what he left in the wake. Good on him.

        I do admire his civility as she invaded his personal space, but glad to see he didn’t stop and give her any more than he did. He needs to keep appropriate boundaries with fans like that.

      • jammypants says:

        In that other pap video, he had a little trail of fangirls following him lol! She was in that video.

    • icerose says:

      if he gets engaged I suspect the comments would easily escalate to 500 especially if it was another celeb or someone completely off the wall.

  42. ellesbelles says:

    I’m not even listening to the words, but tom is reading me the red necklace. Cheap mp3 player was the best purchase ever.

    • Gracie says:

      Talk about sensory overload when listening to Tom’s voice through headphones *blush*

    • icerose says:

      it is pretty hot but the first time I saw the Tennessee Williams reading I was beyond help for the day.

      • MtnRunner says:

        icerose, I concur.

        See also: “May I Feel Said He”.

        Oh my.

      • ellesbelles says:

        is there actually video of the tenessee williams performance? I have the audio which makes me blush six shades of pink right down to my toes. I think video would reduce me to a middle schooler at a one direction concert

      • Oh Hey says:

        All of that and more, yes, I can’t wait to get some new headphones……

      • Oh Hey says:

        Elles there’s a tiny surreptitious video not of that passage, you may have sent that to me, actually, but I don’t think there’s tape of the whole thing. God help me if there is……..

    • ellesbelles says:

      I realized last night that the Red Necklace file on the cloud is a bit wonk, so I’ll fix it up tonight. It was nice while it lasted though. Through headphones is definitely the way to go

  43. Florence says:

    I wonder if he is still seeing the holiday pic woman. Kind of strange to show up with someone you’ll be photographed with at the tennis final, deny a relationship, she fanbaits then voila! a holiday pic. Wish all these dudes would stop with the nonsense. We’re interested in their acting, not their personal life so stop being shady about it

    • jammypants says:

      If they were just fwb, it makes sense why he would deny a relationship.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      It would be down right creepy if he had proclaimed a relationship in that interview, considering, despite the publication date, it was actually given just a few weeks after the Wimbledon picture. I’m a fan and I never felt “fan baited”, but then again, I don’t track the twitter accounts of actor’s dates to sporting events.

      • jammypants says:

        Yea I didn’t think he was baiting at all. He doesn’t court the press when it comes to his private life. I don’t know much about JA, but just based on her twitter activities mentioned here, she seemed to bait just a tad.

      • koko says:

        I didn’t feel like he was fan baiting at all. She was, clear up to the time she deleted her account. Twitter accounts are there to be followed, after Wimbledon photo, that’s what people did. Any woman he’s seen with will see an increase in attention via social media. Human curiosity.

      • Catherine says:

        This subject again…the woman concerned will be brought up until he’s photoged with someone else.

        Lilac, he told the journalist he was single in that ES interview (the one with the ducks) and that was given in October.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Catherine, so? He still is single. Three months into a relationship does not tend to naturally change it from “single” to “exclusively committed to one another forever and ever so much so that I must talk about it in every interview.” At least not when grown-ups are concerned. Three months still leaves room for casually dating, especially when one of the people has just spent a good portion of that three months working in another country, as he was doing on the re-shoots of Thor and the filming of Muppets and Pirate Fairy and promoting The Hollow Crown’s US release and attending film festivals for OLLA and about to embark on TDW world tour. Given that publications and websites had him “married” at one point when he wasn’t, it would make sense for the guy to be very articulate in stopping such rumors.

        If people are hiding a relationship, they don’t attend major sporting events together and they don’t travel on airplanes together and they don’t go to restaurants together.

        I’ve had plenty of dating relationships that lasted 3-4 months or more that never would have altered my view of myself as “single.”

      • MtnRunner says:

        It amuses me how much people talk about a woman that hasn’t been seen with him in what, 6 months? 12 months?. It seems to me if he’s not being seen with her by all the fan-paps and caught on cell phone cameras, I’m wondering why she’s getting any chatter here.

    • Ratherbeme says:

      What is fanbaiting?

      • MtnRunner says:

        “Fanbait is content that exists purely to appeal to, excite or anger a particular fanbase of a pop-culture phenomenon”. – Urban Dictionary

        I didn’t think it was fanbait, either.

    • Josa says:

      Wimbledon pic and holiday pic were posted by others, not him, he has no control of what others do. A normal person like you and me is allowed to go to watch a tennis game with friend or go on vacation with friend. If he was asked to take a picture with fans like he did in Bora Bora and he refused because he thought he had something to hide, then that’s pathetic. If you are truly interested only in his acting and nothing else, then why care if he hangs out with friend or gf or fwb and not share his relationship detail with the world. Let him live a life like other people do.

      • Oh Hey says:

        Given his mounting popularity he may have to be a bit smarter and a bit less accessible especially when he is somewhere not related to business, maybe learn to say ‘no’ and not feel bad when people who are intruding on your privacy anyway feel badly that you rejected their request for a selfie and an autograph. There was a thing posted on tumblr today by Jada Pinkett Smith, which was interesting: “Worry about being respected, never worry about being liked. Because that’s the trap, that’s were people can manipulate you”.

      • jammypants says:

        I agree with everything you said, Josa. This makes me think of how he got called attention whore for walking through the airport with a guitar he got from set and boots and the same clothes he wore for 6 months. The video shows you how simple it all was. Just a walk to the luggage carousel. It’s just all a bit exaggerated lol

      • TotallyBiased says:

        @Oh Hey
        Something to keep in mind is that the Bora Bora pic wasn’t a fan / selfie / autograph situation. He was at a VERY special, unique restaurant with his date where guests often get their picture taken with the staff/chef. In that case, someone figured out who he was and when it was posted to a (regrettably not set to private) FB album with his name in the (French?) caption, the stalker fans found it. It still wasn’t uncovered until days after it was posted, though! I think there’s also a FB page for the restaurant with an album of guest pics, but I don’t remember if Tom’s was ever in those.

      • Josa says:

        @Oh Hey. I’m not disagree how much celebrity has to be careful. We think they should go thru a pro & con in their head before allowing a fan to take pic with them: Is it going hurt me if I take a pic with this fan or would it hurt more if I refuse? What if he doesn’t really think that much, and does it if he feels like it and don’t if he feels not? I don’t really know what went thru his head but there is possibility that he didn’t think much about it as long as it isn’t causing him inconvenience. If he is nice to people, it must be because he wants to be liked? Some people are just nice, it happens.

      • Catherine says:

        Josa, if you go to a high-profile sporting event with a date and sit in a VIP box, you can expect to be photographed, if you pose for a pic on holiday it’s likely it will end up on social media. In those cases you have a level of control about being photographed: in the 1st case don’t go to the event or don’t take a date, the 2nd politely refuse the pic, or the person with you goes out the shot (which is what I would’ve done in that situation).

        The pap or fan pics in the airport or other public places, esp without the persons knowledge, are the ones they don’t have control over.

      • Josa says:

        The VIP box at Wimbledon are at ground level, where the likes of Bradley Cooper, Gerard Butler and Beckhams were at and had their every move recorded. Tom wasn’t sitting there, he was at the mid-level where sponsor seats are at. There are a lot of corporate sponsors for such sports event so it’s not a given that he’ll be noticed. But my point was, he doesn’t necessarily think it’s a big deal that he went to a sport event with a woman and be seen with a female company. Didn’t he go to ATP final with Sian? Why is it that because he is famous that he shouldn’t go out watch a tennis game with a woman? Why must he not hang out with women just because he is famous? And why if he shows up with a woman then he is trying to get attention? I don’t get the logic. Must famous men ought to appear in public like they live their lives like monks and never be seen with other women? He’s a 30 something single man, he said he loves Wimbledon since his childhood and he shows up every year there to watch tennis. Just because he went with a woman that time, why is that such a big deal?

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Josa, exactly on all your points.

        @Catherine, the fact that he didn’t do those things would indicate that he is not hiding or denying anything.

  44. Florence says:

    Lilacflowers – I don’t follow TH on twitter or follow anyone he follows and I never have. The “fanbaiting” by her was discussed extensively on here by posters who did follow them, have a word with them about the stalking not me

    The others asking about fanbaiting, I didn’t mean him, I meant her, again my view was formed based on what I read on here by posters who follow them quite closely

    • jammypants says:

      Yea I try to stay away from discussions on JA, but from what everyone was saying, she really was baiting the fans, and they took it lol

      • ellesbelles says:

        on one hand I cant come down too hard on her. I’d possibly troll the fans a little too if I was even casually dating someone like Tom, but on the other hand, her trolling may be what kept it from escalating into more of a relationship, since he seems to be very low key about his private doings

      • Oh Hey says:

        I am sure he appreciates discretion, and she didn’t seem to be showing any, from what I remember. What makes me sick is that they haven’t been spotted together since then and people still can’t help bringing her up. Move on, people….that truly was nothing ‘to write home about’.

      • jammypants says:

        I think people lost their minds when she favorited a tweet about how he was in bed. I didn’t look her twitter up, but that came from this site :P That thread probably went somewhere between 500-600 comments.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      I am well aware you meant her and I said the same thing to those people then.

      @ellesbelles, nobody has any idea what the status of that relationship is since neither one of them has ever said anything about it.

  45. MtnRunner says:

    Looking at the pap photos, Tom looked much better leaving LA than arriving. He looks like he starting to fill out, his hair’s styled nicely and he didn’t tuck his pants into his boots. Well played, Tommy. You lookin’ fine.

    As a former Nashvillian, I also approve of the guitar as an accessory.

    • ellesbelles says:

      I noticed that as well. It looked like he was more rested. I also really really like that he seems to have been able to get home without getting on any radar. There doesn’t appear to be any paparazzi shots of him or fan sightings for that matter of him in London, so he’s either not home quite yet, or he’s a sneaky squirrel and slipped in under everyone’s nose

    • Josa says:

      I thought that also. He looks like a mess after getting off the plane, he looks nice before getting on another plane. And look how tight the neck of the boots are under the pants, they are not easy to be pulled over the boots, I think that’s why he tucked it under the boots getting off the plane. I was a bit worry for him after Evening Standard Award, he looked very rough there, probably jetlag, tired and stress. But a few days after finishing ISTL, he’s already looking much better.

      • icerose says:

        Sometimes I just do not understand why posts end up where they do,
        I think To has a natural resilience which comes from his warmth and optimism
        I

      • Josa says:

        On the news on my TV, it’s reported there is a study that shown hugging keeps people healthy. They aren’t sure if it’s because you get used to germ by hugging a lot and therefore not getting sick easily, or because hugging makes you cheerful and positive, but certainly your immune system gets a boost by hugging a lot. Make sense now why Tom bounces back so quickly.

      • Oh Hey says:

        I will take one for the team and volunteer to hug daily with the Dragonfly King and let you all know how that works out – I’d be a good candidate, I get UR things pretty easily, his handsomeness could be the key to health! Tough job, but someone’s gotta do it…….

      • TotallyBiased says:

        Evidently there will be a line.

        ;)

  46. cookiemonster says:

    Guys not to sound too stalkerish but…Tom just followed Hugh Laurie!! Night Manger??

    • jammypants says:

      I hope so!

    • Oh Hey says:

      Or Tom’s finally got a little free time to look at Twitter?

    • ellesbelles says:

      now if he follows taylor swift back, then tumblr may explode

      • TotallyBiased says:

        @ellesbelles
        You have an evil mind. I love that about you. ;)

      • ellesbelles says:

        @TB my inner hiddlebelle hopes he doesn’t but you know how tumblr tries to make fetch happen.

        Actually it wouldnt be a bad thing if tumblr exploded, as long as we archive the gifs first.

        SOMEBODY THINK OF THE GIFS!!!

      • Gracie says:

        Every time I look at her, I just think: nice looking girl, but what a boring girl! So, IDK, maybe she and Harry Styles should rekindle the fire? If there was ever fire to begin with, that is.

      • Oh Hey says:

        Please no…..nothing’s even happened and people can’t stop talking about it. UGH.

      • Oh Hey says:

        Double post deleted

    • MtnRunner says:

      “not to sound too stalkerish”

      It’s all in your perspective, I suppose — haha. I barely have time to keep up with comments on the Hiddles/Bendy posts. Clearly, others more free time if they’re tracking twitter activity. I’m lucky to view my twitter feed once a day! Such is life with kids…

      I do hope we get confirmation that Night Manager is definitely a go and when they’re filming. I’m looking forward to seeing that.

    • ellesbelles says:

      I caved and dusted off my twitter. It took me a few tries to even remember what it was

    • 'P'enny says:

      He followed hugh grant which is more disconcerting lol 😜

      • Lilacflowers says:

        But when is he going to answer Damien Lewis’s tongue twister challenge?

      • 'P'enny says:

        he might have done it the night of theatre awards, he was hanging around with Damien and Helen by the looks of it. But, to be honest, IMO he’s done a lot of these twitter charity campaign things this year and he may think — eeek maybe to many.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        But if he did do it; he didn’t film it and post it on the girl’s research site, which is the point of the challenge, right? And it looked like he, Damien, and Helen were having lots of fun. Eton boys hanging out together.

    • Gracie says:

      I want the night manager to happen. Ladies, I am counting on you to report back since I’m on house arrest(ish) until the end of March. :(

      • ellesbelles says:

        Gracie your mum is there that long?? You poor girl! Start squirreling away snacks!

      • Gracie says:

        To be honest, feasting on Tom is harder than feasting on food. *sobs*

      • ellesbelles says:

        Start squirreling away tom too! Headphones Gracie, headphones!!

      • Gracie says:

        My own Tommy in my special mind place – I like the sound of that! *spiralling away* and listen to Kingdom of Earth one more time. I love how he almost loses it towards the end, the part after the woman screamed and you can hear the laughter in his voice when he read something like ‘and you have to laugh’.

      • ellesbelles says:

        When I was in bed last night, with Tom (ha wishful thinking, only a voice in my ears) it was fantastic. I honestly have no idea what he was actually saying, I was just listening. I had the same problem with the red necklace file as I did with the coriolanus videos. Its so big, it doesnt convert properly. Thats my task tonight, to fix it up

      • Gracie says:

        I have the red necklace in mp3 on my notebook. Give me a shout if you need it. :)

      • ellesbelles says:

        Youre a life saver again! Yes please!!!

      • Allegra says:

        @ellesbelles and ladies:

        A fan just found a new video on youtube with the hole thing and a interview with Josie Rourke.
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_J7gX18rCQo

        @Allegra, in which Emma Freud and Josie Rourke shamelessly fangirl.

      • Allegra says:

        @Lilacflowers:

        I can´t blame them! I would do the same if he had the chance.

  47. Susan says:

    Hey there, Lilacflowers — You and a few others on this thread were wondering why Tom is in LA when he should be flying in the other direction back to his hometown of London. We all agree that Tom is gorgeous inside and out. And I speculate that Tom had a sweet reason to spend one night in LA, arriving on Dec. 19 and then leaving back to London on Dec. 20. Remember when Tom called Chris Hemsworth his “brother from another mother”? I am making a good guess that Tom stopped in LA to see Chris and his family (wife, daughter and twin boys) since he was already close by in Nashville, TN. Tom probably took a car service to Malibu on Dec. 19 where Chris and his family live. Wish I could have been there to see all the good stories, love and laughter they shared at the Hemsworth home. I can imagine how wonderful Tom was playing and cuddling Chris and Elsa Hemsworth’s children. Certainly Tom stayed the night in one of their guest rooms and then left the next afternoon for LAX (Dec. 20) to return to London. Don’t you hope that Tom finds a good woman and has many children so he can create more beautiful human beings like him? I know we all wish we were the special person for Tom, but let’s be realistic. We really love him and thus want the best for him. Blessings to Tom and his family at Christmastime! Best to you as well, Lilacflowers!

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Blessings to you too, Susan. Really not sure why you singled me out, but Tom and Chris will be working together in just a few weeks and Nashville in nowhere near Los Angeles, not close by at all. If they did see each other that’s nice but highly unlikely that was the reason for his visit. Nice fan fiction you have there. I wish everyone happiness but I would never, ever wish that somebody create children, unless they want them, and I am extremely realistic – not everyone can have or should have children. I pretty much stay out of expectations of anyone finding a “good woman” or a “good man”. Their personal lives are really none of my business.

      • TotallyBiased says:

        @Lilacflowers
        May I just take a moment here to express how much I FREAKIN’ ADORE YOUR RESPONSE HERE!
        Ahem.
        Thank you.
        We now return you to your regularly scheduled Tom programming.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Thanks, Totally Biased and may you have a freakin’ great holiday season!

      • jammypants says:

        Haha for some reason all the “freakin!” makes me think of Home Alone. “Merry Christmas ya filthy animal. And a Happy New Year.”

      • Lilacflowers says:

        In just a few minutes, it will be Festivus here. Happy Festivus!

      That is an AWFUL lot of speculation/imagination you have there, Susan…… :D

    • 'P'enny says:

      oh my, have you been reading to many Christmas romance books? i know i have, i’m on my third smooozy romance book. love them. btw, I think Chris is in Oz.

      happy christmas! to you all and I look forward to a 2015 of CB’s Hiddles posts because it’s going to be a cracking year ahead on here. I know all the Benedict super-fans are going to bitch the high life out of Tom in revenge of our ribbing all year.

      I got them Gracie! Thank you so much! Merry Christmas! xox

      • ellesbelles says:

        The full 6+ hr long red necklace file is now in the cloud thanks to Gracie coming to my rescue again! Also the full sountrack to OLLA is there as well

      • jammypants says:

        For things that are really hard to get like Coriolanus (I actually was lucky to catch a screening of it this year), I would agree with sharing online, but the OLLA soundtrack is available for purchase and it’s done by very independent artists. I highly recommend buying it. I bought my cd for only $10.

  50. MtnRunner says:

    Well ladies, wishing you all a happy and healthy Christmas holiday. I’ve got visiting fam and Hollow Crown / Coriolanus planned for our viewing pleasure. Hoping to catch Wild at the cinema and perhaps sneak out to the mountains for a romp.

    See y’all on the next Hiddles thread (or that other guy if he does something silly between now and New Years!).

    • ellesbelles says:

      Merry Christmas Mtn! <3 I have OLLA, Hollow Crown, and a few runs planned myself since I'm by my lonesome this christmas. I'm going to go see TIG as well tomorrow evening. There is a special screening

    • Gracie says:

      Merry Christmas, lovelies! I wish you all a very Hiddles holiday! xxoo @elles, I am swinging my head up and down to OLLA soundtrack as we speak. :) Have you downloaded Coriolanus in HD yet? Just as I thought Hiddles couldn’t get more yummy in Coriolanus, then I saw it in HD. *hearteye*

      • ellesbelles says:

        I havent done the HD download yet. That’s on my agenda Thursday! OMG I just realized I can watch youtube through my bluray player… and my TV is HD!!!!!

    Things may get complicated in certain London homeowner’s associations–Tim Burton and HBC have split officially.
    Merry Christmas—they seem pretty chipper about it all.

    • Gracie says:

      OMG, really? Right before Christmas too? With whom Tom will be having a drink and spill the beans do you think? I wish Tim Burton and HBC all the best though.

      Merry Christmas to you too, totallybiased. Having a drink for me if you do drink? I can’t have any this Christmas.

    • ellesbelles says:

      They’ve always struck me as the type that will remain friendly and continue to be good parents to their kids. They have two seperate flats in the building right? or did they connect them? either way, love them both and wish them the best. For some reason I totally get the vibe that it was calm and went something like.. “well, I’m sick of your face. Yeah I’m sick of your face too. Shall we split then? Right. See you for tea”

      • Oh Hey says:

        One interview I read said that Tim has a deviated septum and won’ t surgery so he snores, and she is “very bossy”, so they have separate apartments that are joined and separate bedrooms for peace (so underrated!). Didn’t know that they never married, tho, I thought they had.

  52. ellesbelles says:

    Official Merry Christmas to the Dragonflies!

    As a gift to you all, Coriolanus in HD is on the cloud. One part is wmv, the other is mp4, so if you have any hiccups let me know!

      • Gracie says:

        Boxing day isn’t public holiday in the States? I did not know that. At least you get 4 uninterrupted days off this way. Food prepared? Boozy ready?

        Edit: Just saw what you said upthread. Jamesons – great choice. *wink*

      • TotallyBiased says:

        Gracie–to show you how little we know about Boxing Day in the US, I thought it was the day AFTER Christmas! :)

      • ellesbelles says:

        lol!! I know what Boxing day is but no its not an American Holiday. Usually I would have Christmas Eve and Day off, but because of how it falls, my company opted to shift it, have us work today and then have friday off. Its not too bad, I’m just hoping I’m out before the snow storm comes. Its going to be a white christmas after all!

      • Gracie says:

        @TotallyBiased, it is! Also known as the day sales start in major stores. Mum is so excited. Actually I should be thankful that she’s quite tame. At least I don’t have to end up in a tent outside Harrods or Selfridges on Christmas day. (It’s more urban legend than anything else. People talk about such things. But I’ve never seen anyone do that. Especially not now; the major stores start their sales online after the midnight tonight. So even though nothing is open tomorrow, people can still shop to their hearts’ content. No need to camp out anywhere.)

        @elles, white Christmas and Jamesons, all you need is Tommy! ;)

      • ellesbelles says:

        @Gracie, I’ve got HC and OLLA. As close as I’m gonna get, but I’ll take it!

      • tigerlily says:

        I’m in Canada and Boxing Day is a big deal here too. Crazy sales and people lining up in front of stores at 5am hoping to get deals. Not for me….I sleep in:)

        Merry Xmas to all. I was hoping for a Hiddles post today but looks like no dice.

      • Oh Hey says:

        People seem so desperate to hear from Tom that they are retweeting Christmas messages from 2 and 3 years ago – sheesh! Rather pointless!

    Merry ChrisTOMas and Happy HIDDLEdays! :D

  54. ellesbelles says:

    I fully intended to return olla today, but alas the redbox is inside a grocery store that was closed today so darn, I had to keep it. (Say nothing about returning to any location *shifty eyes*)

    More Tom for me then :-)

    • MtnRunner says:

      Elles, and you have until 9p Friday night to return it. I think you should watch it at least 8 more times and milk that $1.50 for everything you can.

      Saw TIG tonight. Am I odd for laughing more than crying during it? There were a lot of funny lines. Strong performances all around, though I thought the writing was a bit weak. I don’t like being conscious of my heartstrings being pulled, coldhearted bitch that I am. It’s not Best Picture material, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Also, I came out admiring Mark Strong and Matthew Goode in a whole new way. Now, I see what the fuss is all about with those two.

      • ellesbelles says:

        @Mtn I saw TIG as well today and completely agree about Matthew and Mark. I fully admit I cried at the end. As much as I get annoyed, I’m still buying what otter is selling. My cynical bi**h heart melted as soon as I saw those blue eyes. I don’t think it is his year for Oscar, but it was still excellent.

        As for OLLA I’m pretty close to knowing all the words lol. The film I thought I would like the least has become my second favorite. Hal is always my #1

      • Gracie says:

        There is something about Tom playing a playful rogue. He just brings so much charm and charisma; if it wasn’t for the fact that Regency romance usually has cheesy, lazy storyline, he so should play a reforming Rake (there is rake and there is Rake, as they would say. Hah!) of some sort.

        Everyone is having good Christmas? I am about to join the shopping crowd in a bit. :( Wish me luck fighting with somebody over Estee Lauder gift sets – what mummy wants, mummy gets.

        @mtnrunner, is it possible that some of the scenes have been deleted by HW’s request, which makes the writing seem weak? I remember reading somewhere. Didn’t they cut off 45mins worth of footage?

      • MtnRunner says:

        Hi Gracie, hope your Christmas was lovely!

        As I’ve thought about it and read more of the real story of Turing, I wish he had been portrayed a more realistically. They went for the martyr angle, to ensure maximum sympathy for him. Conflict was added where there was none in several places to “Hollywood it up”(i.e. Dance’s, Goode’s characters). The others working with him in Hut 8 were portrayed as less intelligent and not contributing as much to the effort in order to make Turing the hero of the story. Leech’s character didn’t even work at Hut 8. If it had been a fictional story, I would have enjoyed it more. As it was, I feel like I didn’t get to see the real Turing or get his real story, which was quite interesting, it seems.

        I did enjoy Bendy’s performance and was particularly blown away by the boy playing young Turing.

        There was some pretty bad dialog at times. That soundbite that they repeat three times over about “sometimes it is the people no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine” was OTT cheesy to me. There were other bits and pieces that didn’t seem to fit in place, either.

        NY books and Slate gave more critical reviews of the movie and they seemed to put into words some of what I was bothered about after watching. Now, I just want to see a good documentary on the man and what actually happened at Bletchley Park.

      • ellesbelles says:

        Gracie I had forgotten about the cut footage. Without giving spoilers, that would explain the few weak spots.

        Hope you survived the shopping! My adventures today are only limited to the market thank God.

        I really am impressed with Tom. He managed to get out of L.A.and literally disappear. No fan sightings, no pap shots. Well done Tom!

      • MtnRunner says:

        Elles, Hal is my favorite Tommy incarnation too. I like a bit of mischief in my man.
        :-)

      • Oh Hey says:

        I don’t remember seeing any extras or deleted scenes on the copy I rented- are there some on other editions? I did see the deleted scenes on youtube and Jarmeche’s Traveling at Night, but more would be nice. More of all of that movie would be nice. Sequel would be nice. Just sayin’.

      • MtnRunner says:

        Oh Hey, we were referring to TiG (BC threadjack!), not OLLA.

        I loved OLLA and enjoyed the Traveling at Night video too!

        Off to see Unbroken. Hope I can handle the torture scenes…

      • MtnRunner says:

        Back from the movie and this is the first one I’ve seen that screamed “Best Picture Oscar”.

        Disclaimer: I haven’t seen Boyhood yet.

        Torture scenes not as bad as feared, just Louis getting beat up (I’ve seen much worse). Very moving and inspiring film.

      • icerose says:

        Matthew Strong and Matthew Goode were my stocking fillers whilst little Harry Lloyd and Cillian Murphy were decorating my tree. Tom was sat beside the fire playing Christmas carols .Just a perfect few days
        I introduced OLLA to my house guests -the dancer love it and Tom but the farmer was mystified.
        Hope you all had great Xmas and where oh where is some Tom news.

      • MtnRunner says:

        Icerose, that sounds like a peachy Christmas! I’ve managed to see three Oscar buzzed movies (TIG, Unbroken, Foxcatcher) and hope to catch Wild or Big Eyes tomorrow.

        Do I have you correctly pegged as living in/near London and a theatre regular? If so, are there performances on Digital Theatre and Globe online that you’d recommend? Fanty said to watch Private Lives. Any others?

      • icerose says:

        @MtnRunner I live about 2 hours drive from London but the speed train gets me there in an hour and a quarter for about $25 off peak so I go to a lot of cheap matinees,
        On digital theatre I would recommend Ibsen’s Ghost -the actress won a much deserved Olivier but be prepared to cry. I spent 10 minutes in the lu after the show sobbing my heart out, Private Live’s was good.it is a witty Coward period piece and Much Ado About Nothing with Tate and Tennant is on my to watch list.
        ON the globe player if you watch play make it Twelfth Night with Mark Rylence (Oliver nominated )and Stephen Fry. It also has Samuel Barnet in it who is one of my cute favourite stage actors, He plays the twin brother but at one stage.
        Jamie Parkers Henry Vth is quite good and I heard the Tempest was good as well.

      • MtnRunner says:

        Thank you, Icerose. I’ll add those recommendations to my growing list of shows to see!

  55. ellesbelles says:

    I actually quite like that there have been no news bits or pap photos. It means hes off the radar and hopefully relaxing and eating. As much as I’d love to see them, I’m glad they’re not around.

    I survived Christmas shopping unscathed. Only encountered crowds Christmas eve when I was at world market getting tea. Ive been trying to avoid acquiring stuff lately. Im going to downsize my living space next year to save money, which means getting rid of year of collecting “stuff”. Its equal parts liberating and traumatic

    • Gracie says:

      Poor darling, you need a hug and lots of good spirit. Believe me, I know the feeling of downsizing so well. It’s traumatising and full of moments when I just sit there thinking ‘how did my life become this?’ The only good thing is once you’re done, you get to see everything neat and nicely packed. You’re keeping all Tommy’s DVDs, right?

      • ellesbelles says:

        Of course Gracie! I’ve just had a laugh, imagining myself sitting in the middle of an empty flat clutching my hollow crown box set.

        Its mostly turning into a good thing because I’m donating so much to charity. Hopefully someone else can benefit from it while my stuff becomes easier to manage and I can put money in the bank!

      • Gracie says:

        I imagine that’s what I will be doing the next time I move, LOL. Clutching onto my laptop for dear life when the movers come in: ‘No, no, no, nothing can happen to this. Tom is in there – ‘ :)

      • ellesbelles says:

        That’s going to be me too! Laptop, hollow crown dvds, and mp3 player. These are my tom things. No touching!!

        When you live in London, its easier to just hire movers I’m sure. We may be neighbors yet! Im working towards moving to London in the next few years. Part of the getting rid of things and saving money plan. I can’t wait! Just need to get all of my ducks in a row

      • Gracie says:

        Hooray! Let’s be neighbours! There are a couple of Londoners on CB board, I think, soothy from the other guy’s thread and maybe sixer, not entirely sure. First thing about London, lodging and transportation are dreadfully expansive, like dreadful. :( But I love it for its vitality and diversity, and for it feels so old yet so new, depending on where you go in London. You are gonna love it here.

      • ellesbelles says:

        The flat rents dont phase me too much, as I’m originally from San Francisco, so high prices come with the territory. I want a grand adventure, and I’m willing to pay for it. Which is why im giving myself the time to set up the proper funds to get started. All I can see on the horizon is getting on that one way British Airways flight. Plus the visa process is hard so I’m allowing time to make sure everything passes muster. As for neighborhoods, as close to regents as possible. I need parks to run, and interesting things to be near. No car, so that will afford a little pricier rent. I’m so excited already!

      • icerose says:

        you two will have a great time in London and be right on sight for some great theatre shows. Renting is expensive and UK flats can be very different (older and more basic) from those in the USA/CANADA but some jobs i.e. nursing pay London weighting which helps with finding a accommodation.
        Visa’s regulating have become much more stringent and expensive.

    • icerose says:

      I keeping hoping for some definite announcements re future productions which his PR people can do and leave him to rest in peace,
      I had a female friend staying and we braved the post Christmas sales whilst my other guest stayed at home because he hates shopping and, cleaned out the fire grate and lit a fire and fixed my cuckou clock which has not worked for 7 years so it was the perfect arrangement as far as we ladies were concerned.
      I took him to an amazing real ale pub as a thank you but we got caught in a blizzard on the country hills and instead of a half hour it took me two hours to get back and at times I thought we might end up spending the night in the car,

      • ellesbelles says:

        Ice, I’m glad you were able to get back safely. I saw news stories about the storms that moved in and dumped lots of snow!

        It sounds like we all survived the holidays pretty well. I agree it would be nice to hear some production notes. The end of 2015 sounds like its going to be so much tom, I can’t wait! Especially ISTL. I’m not even a massive hank Williams fan but I love the 50s and I love tom, so two out of three is close enough

  56. TotallyBiased says:

    Heavens to Murgatroyd!
    I’m almost afraid to say it, but the latest BendyC post has been c..l..o..s..e..d after only a week! And it wasn’t even at 900 comments yet! ;)
    Seriously, I’m going through withdrawals. Where’s that CP trailer? For that matter, why no new post on Empire’s CP pics?

    • ellesbelles says:

      I think management is/was away for the holidays. Dont jinx it! I didn’t know about the empire pics. Will have to go look. I’ve been shameless in taking Hal to bed nightly for the past few.

    • MtnRunner says:

      Most of those comments on the BC thread were the same 5 or 6 ladies who are tracking his every move over the holidays. Had nothing to do with the subject of the post. I miss the humor of the 2013 threads when Fanty, Eve, Sixer, EsCon, j.eyre and Anna were regulars on Hiddles/Cumby posts.

      I too, am waiting for the damn CP trailer that was promised. C’mon del Toro, let’s have it!

      • ellesbelles says:

        Im glad that Tom and Otter have seemed to have gone off the radar a bit. Both gentleman deserve a moment to breathe. Plenty to see from both in the coming year. After seeing TIG, I would love to see Ben honored with one of the big three. As for Tom… well I’m super excited, especially for High Rise, but for anything he’s involved with.
        But for now, I hope they are both getting a much needed rest

      • TotallyBiased says:

        @MtnR–
        Believe me, I’m not complaining–just surprised it was them and not us, quite frankly (sorry, Elles! That’s the last I’ll say about it!)

        Hmmm. A Hal fix sounds tasty. :D

      • MtnRunner says:

        TB, well we did have a Bendy post today. I recall that was the prevailing theory as to why Hiddles posts got closed early — a new one was due the next day.

        Did you see the Hollywood Sessions Lead Actor video with Keaton, RDJ, Carell, Eddie and Bendy? If you enjoyed the Hollywood Reporter roundtable, you’d enjoy that one too. My comment disappears when I post the link, so just google it and you’ll find it.

  57. ellesbelles says:

    We had a freak snow storm come through last night and it turned to ice, so I took a snow day rather than risk the drive. Needless to day, I’m marathoning hollow crown because why not lol.

    With no new bits, desperate times desperate measures! Enjoy your relaxing Tom, but we miss your cute face!

  58. TotallyBiased says:

    Well, no CP trailer yet–but I gotcher Holiday Surprise right here!
    Seems we now know what TomTom was doing in LA for 24 hours–Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts posted this to his instagram about a week ago.
    So here you have it–I give you the first pics with The Tom ( ;) ) and JK Simmons in the same shot!
    http://instagram.com/p/wzyRqGADWn/?modal=true
    Now I’d just like to know what’s happened since then that evidently landed JVR in a Burn Center Hyperbaric Chamber–but he’s okay, man! ( ????)

    • ellesbelles says:

      aaaaahh! I love that picture. look at that smile!!

    • MtnRunner says:

      Tom and JK — what a great match. Will you be following JVR and keeping us posted? I’m too busy to track anything on social media. I count on the Celebitches with more time to help me stay informed!

      Check out JK on the Hollywood Sessions Supporting Actors video. It’s sooo good!

      • ellesbelles says:

        I was going to follow his instagram, but some of his other photos I wasnt a fan of. I may check in now and then but I dont think I’ll follow

  59. Gracie says:

    Wish you all a very happy new year’s eve! Gonna brace the cold and take mummy to fireworks tonight. Late night/early morning, icy road and no booze. /sigh

    Lovely picture upthread. Can I have Tom wrapped to go before I step out? *wishful thinking*

    • ellesbelles says:

      Happy new year Gracie! We’re going to have to send you a flask of the good stuff to keep warm! Jamesons!

  60. ellesbelles says:

    Only Lovers Left Alive is on yet another best of list, this time it comes in at number 29 on Empire Magazines top 50 of 2014 :)

    “Jim Jarmusch’s late-phase experiments in genre continued this year: having previously played with the Western (Dead Man) and hit men (Ghost Dog, The Limits Of Control), he finally turned his attention to horror. Not that Only Lovers Left Alive is inherently horrifying, but it does concern vampires, seductively inhabited by Tilda Swinton (who better?) and Tom Hiddleston, with memorable turns from John Hurt and Mia Wasikowska. Mirroring the decaying Detroit with the crumbling Tangiers, it’s a masterpiece of darkly stoned atmosphere and bone dry humour, set against a mesmerising and eclectic drone soundtrack. Jarmusch’s own band, SQüRL, are significant contributors.”

    And from what I can tell, their first issue of 2015 lists Crimson Peak at #3 for movies you should see in 2015!

    • Gracie says:

      Keep my eyes open for the release date. (Me not at all concerned about the nudity shoots.)

      Jamesons much appreciated, dear. Happy new year to you. May your 2015 be full of joy and prosperity!

    • icerose says:

      Happy New year and wishing al the dragonflies an outstanding Tom year.

  61. MtnRunner says:

    Happy New Years, ladies… See y’all in 2015!

  62. TotallyBiased says:

    Oh, for the love of Loki:
    Lego Loki (@Loki_Lego) is tweeting in the New Year in style!
    In the vine, the wee Lord and his GotG cohort challenge @twhiddleston to a dance off, and it really is awesome. ;)
    https://vine.co/v/Owt9mXiuIHj
    (Other NYE party guests at Chez Brickhouse include most every character Tom has played, including Hank and Caius Martius, and even Bucky!)

  63. queen says:

    Happy new year
    Info from twitter – a guy twitted that his uber had almost ran over tom, today around noon in london. Gosh , i wonder if tom was coming back from his nye party

    • TotallyBiased says:

      Oh, don’t tease us now–we need the source tweet!

      • Josa says:

        Not sure if I can post a link, so try this, go look for the @HighRise_movie (the official High-Rise movie acct) on twitter, they re-tweeted that source tweet.

      • Josa says:

        Btw, this is what the guy tweeted: “Embarrassingly our Uber just nearly ran over Tom Hiddleston, I think that counts as a #firstworldproblem!”. Seems like his Uber’s in the wrong in almost running over Tom.

  64. queen says:

    I bet he had a big hangover,hehehe.
    i wonder if he,s gonna tweet again. JA keeps her twitter private , he stopped tweeting…..
