Tom Hiddleston wears cable-knit sweater at TIFF, talks about ‘vibrating’


Oh, I’m sorry, did you want MOAR Tom Hiddleston photos? This is our reward after more than a year of Hiddlesdrought. We now have more Hiddleston photos than we know what to do with. These pics are mostly from yesterday’s TIFF photocall for High Rise. I know I’m supposed to talk exclusively about Hiddles, but my God, Elisabeth Moss is a terrible dresser. I love her, I think she’s crazy-talented, but chica has style issues! At the end of the day, I kind of think her bad style is sort of charming. It humanizes her. As for Tom’s style… that cable sweater looks nice on him. I think… Ralph Lauren, maybe? Is it cashmere? Cashmere Hiddles is the best Hiddles. Maybe even better than Pimp Coat Hiddles.

Some of you have been wanting to hear the Hiddles voice. Here’s a video interview with “Lizzie” Olsen about I Saw the Light.

Here’s Hiddles talking about “vibrating” with excitement ahead of filming Kong: Skull Island.

Tommy is always at his best when he’s talking to Josh Horowitz, right? I’m surprised Josh didn’t ask him to dance again. Anyway, I’m not into the concept behind Kong: Skull Island, and it sounds like it will be a really crazy film shoot, but sure… if Tom is excited about it, we’ll see.

Just enjoy the pics…

    Be still my heart – Tom & Luke Evans together in one picture? To much hotness there.

    Shame one is taken and the other is gay.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Yes, Tom is taken by me.

    • H says:

      Have you pics of Luke Evans bf? My, oh, my. Hello.

      • Caitlin Bruce says:

        Just googled him. Wow what a handsome couple. I didn’t know Luke was properly out. That’s great.

      • Crocuta says:

        I didn’t know it either. Wasn’t there a story last year about how he climbed back into the closet? Either way, good for him that he’s honest to himself & enjoying life. His BF is gorgeous.

      • et alors says:

        I think Luke may have broken up with the gorgeous Jon Kortajarena. There are pap photos from about a week ago of Luke at the beach in Mykonos with someone else.

    • frisbee says:

      It doesn’t remotely bother me that Luke Evans is gay, I’ll probably never meet him, most definitely will never pull him but none of that interferes with my appreciation of him as an attractive man with a gorgeous Welsh accent (he’s not Aidan Turner but like Mr Turner he has dark chocolate pudding eyes – it always helps!) I just don’t get it when I see some posters getting upset about actors possibly being gay (I’m not suggesting that Maya is getting upset btw!). Information about their real-life orientation never affects my pleasant little fantasies one jot.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Mine either. I don’t care if they’re gay, straight, married. It’s not like I’m actually going to meet one of them. Just so long as they’re not assaulting children or their partners or anyone else for that matter. And now that you’ve mentioned Aidan Turner, yummy!

      • frisbee says:

        Exactly and Aidan has a lovely and very short girlfriend, doesn’t bother me in the slightest (said with trembling chin and strangulated sob…) 🙂

      • Maya says:

        When I say shame he is gay is because I would need to have a sex change operation before I would be able to tempt him😏

      • Absolutely says:

        Mmmmmm….Aidan. I am very short as well. Practically interchangeable with your girl, Mr. Turner. Seriously.

  2. Lilacflowers says:

    My husband Tom looks exceptionally fine in that first photo by himself and he’s really excited about the giant monkey.

    I picked out that sweater. It’s really soft.

    Breakfast is served on the veranda and in the meadow. If you are in a different time zone and need more lunch items, just let Colin know.

    • vauvert says:

      Lilacflowers, were the blueberry muffins I sent acceptable? Will be joining you shortly, just waiting for the freshly squeezed orange juice – I am sure I will need the vitamins:-) The outfit is adorable, but I had to smile – I dressed my 11 year old in pretty much identical clothes! It’s a classic fall look, stunning on everybody. (Ahem, Johnny, maybe you want to take a look?)

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Oh yes, of course they were. Colin has vitamins for you too.

      • vauvert says:

        Lovely! Hope the beautiful weather holds too! I need a pretty place to enjoy it – we are redoing our backyard and currently it is a mess, having a civilized, shady nook to sit down, sip my latte and enjoy the gossip is a must for morning. (Don’t worry about Nina, she is just commenting on a guy she does not like, and I am guessing she has even less liking for his fans. Warn Colin to sit her away from us if she shows up:-))

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @vauvert, Mark is preparing an escort to the woods beyond the meadow.

    • Nina says:

      This veranda stuff is so freaking weird. Do you guys read what you’re writing?

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Does it bother you that others are having fun?

      • ncboudicca says:

        Personally, I enjoy it. When I read those posts, i like to picture myself at the party standing in dappled sunlight – with a gauzy lens, a la Joan Collins in Dynasty. (I am almost 50 and I do have a few wrinkles). Anyway, as long as there’s an open bar, I’m having a good time standing around and watching everyone else cavort at these parties. Carry on, folks….

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Nina, do you realize what a Debbie Downer you sound like?

        You must be fun at parties.

      • frisbee says:

        I think it’s brilliant it’s an imaginative day trip, a two minute break from having to wrestle with all sorts of complex crap at work and I see nothing wrong with that.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @frisbee, chocolate martini?

      • frisbee says:

        Lilac – ooh yes please, thank you very much 😀

      • Boston Green Eyes says:

        Well, I am late to the proverbial party, but I must say that I really love all the veranda stuff! I find it to be such a hoot – just picturing Colin Firth running around like a majordomo always makes me LOL!

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @BostonGreenEyes, Colin is bringing you a chocolate martini too. Miss M announced on another thread that the Black Mass red carpet is in place so you may wish to avoid Brookline and parts of Allston-Brighton.

    • Minnieder says:

      Lilac flowers, do you mind if I join you and Tom for afternoon sangria in the garden? I’ve got some lovely truffles you would adore!

  3. Norman Bates' Mother says:

    I love men in nice sweaters. Too bad most guys my age seem to be wearing the weird, ugly ones exclusively – ironically, of course. But Tom looks good. His coat is pretty fab too.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      What I love about a sweater is that the tactile response it induces from me. I want to rub my hands all over his torso.

      The second best thing about a sweater is how easily it slips off.

  4. Caitlin Bruce says:

    He looks so good in pictures which pains me because a lot of interviewers say how better looking he is in real life. Like how good looking can he be 😍😍😍 its a shame he’s not dating “Lizzie” they looked really good together.

  5. Astrid says:

    What’s with the white shoes! Unless they are under a wedding dress, no one should ever be wearing white shoes

  6. t.fanty says:

    Two things; one, mmmmmmm, fizzy, vibrating Hiddles….

    And two, how is it that Elizabeth Moss gets a free pass for being a hardcore scientologist? Is is just because she keeps her mouth shut about it?

    • Kaiser says:

      I dont’ give Moss a total pass, but she is second-generation CoS, so she doesn’t know better to a certain extent. Also, she doesn’t talk about it that much.

    • t.fanty says:

      Apologies, Kaiser. That wasn’t meant to be accusatory specifically at you. I think everyone gives her a free pass. I like her.

      But is being brainwashed in an excuse? She’s very high profile and successful at normalizing the life, and I don’t believe that doesn’t buy her “perks” within the organization. I just think that her involvement gets glossed over, in kind of “good German” way. Maybe she should be asked to talk about it.

      • Ankhel says:

        Being even a fairly minor celebrity does buy you preferential treatment in COS, yes. Church members act subservient and flatter you, but most importantly you are spared harsh punishment. The people on top won’t make you disappear as a slave labourer in one of their camps. They want your pay and public image too much for that.

      • TotallyBiased says:

        There was a profile in New York magazine last year where she fairly harshly said people who criticize Scientology basically don’t know what they’re talking about, but she won’t speak on how it benefits her.
        I rather get the impression it’s a directive on her press/meet and greets that the subject DOES NOT come up, that she will not comment on it.
        After the profile came out, a guy at Salon wrote a great reaction piece calling her out without calling her names:
        And he addresses just that issue–the problematic element of admiring someone’s work while being challenged by personal details about them.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      With those digits, a lady doesn’t need of vibrating apparatus.

  7. Ann says:

    young ones, please enlighten me: do you really think this plain-looking man is swoon worthy? I have to admit I think he’s pretty unattractive.

    • Phoebe says:

      I’m not what you would call “young” per se, but I think he’s just the most gorgeous man I’ve ever laid eyes on. But I like tall and slim with curls and great teeth and a round ass 😍 Also the whole well-educated posh accent, polite, good manners…the opposite of the Neanderthal men I seem to meet. Is that enough swooning? 😉

    • A.Key says:

      Old one, let us enlighten you: there is this thing called personal taste, and in general it varies across nations, cultures, ages, continents, universes!

    • vauvert says:

      His features are not classically beautiful but seeing him in interviews makes you realize that just like Prince Harry, he has something better than plain good looks, he has charisma. And it comes across loud and clear; so yes, he is swoon worthy.

      • Ankhel says:

        Well said, Vauvert. Charm,great personality,enthusiasm and a good heart transforms some decent looking people into MAJOR sex objects. There’s a guy a bit like him in my home town. I always remember him as hotter physically than he actually is – he’s that great.

      • jammypants says:

        I think his individual features are classically beautiful, but somewhat weirdly put together? Either way, lurve him.

    • Miss Jupitero says:

      It really is the charisma think.

      I find him very attractive in film and video, but his photos do nothing at all for me. He is not “hunk” material at all, and I could easily see him doing a Danny Kaye biopic.

      But his voice and his hands…. His relentless earnestness….

    • ctkat1 says:

      I’m sure a lot of you have seen this, but it wasn’t until this that I really “got” the Tom Hiddleston thing- his voice is amazing.

      • TotallyBiased says:

        OOOOOH yeah. He KNOWS what he’s doing, with every syllable.
        That whole ‘killing me softly’ thing could have been about him reading this.

  8. Nina says:

    No, I really have no desire to see more of this dude’s mug.

    • Annaliese says:

      Then why on earth are you here? *is bewildered*

      Unless you came in just to announce you didn’t like the guy, which is something some of us like to call “trolling.”

  9. OSTONE says:

    Gosh this guy is handsome. And he has that nerdy, dorky vibe… Hmm he can me read Shakespeare in bed all day as far as I am concerned lol

  10. NUTBALLS says:

    Thank you, Kaiser for bringing us Tommy in full circumlocution mode. We deserve five posts in five days for the long drought. I’m vibrating with excitement over here… MOAR PUDDLETOM!

    ETA: What’s the red mark next to his right eye??

    • Lilacflowers says:

      I noticed that too. Looks sore, but it doesn’t look like a bruise so no stories of fistfights should surface.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Was he was P’enny last night? That might explain things.

        I only leave marks in places you ladies can’t see.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        I can see them

      • NUTBALLS says:

        About the chaffing, I’m sending him home with some Aloe Vera for you to lovingly apply to the affected appendage. It’s not my intention to disrupt any actives that you have planned. Please accept my sincere apologies. I get carried away, especially in that dark blue jumper of sex he arrives in.

      • P'enny says:

        oops, must be more careful

  11. Esteph says:

    I could stare at his face all day *sigh* I’m coming back to these pictures later

  12. M.A.F. says:

    Those damn shinny pants. Pants which needs to stay on the floor.

  13. Holmes says:

    Elisabeth looks disgracefully bad. Brassy hair needs toning, dress from a 90s era mall store and worst of all, white shoes from Goodwill bin AFTER Labor Day!!!

  14. Mazzie says:

    Oh come on, it’s not that cold in Toronto.

  15. jammypants says:

    So handsome. Sigh.

  16. et alors says:

    The Film Stage gave High-Rise an A, and JoBlo gave it an 8/10. This bit from the latter’s review cracks me up, though. What red-blooded woman would do that?!

    *****SPOILER ALERT just in case*****

    Immaculately attired, Hiddleston looks like a Saville Row model but his deliberate vacant-ness adds a unique flavour to the part. He’s absolutely ideal even if his fanboys fans may be put off by him being so passive, perfectly evidenced by a scene where Sienna Miller’s next-door temptress suddenly gets bored in the midst of their love-making and then sends him home, which he can only respond to with a stammer.

    • Miss Jupitero says:

      The Guardian was less than enthusiastic, alas, though it gives high marks to TommyAnnE:

      • et alors says:

        Oh, I know, Miss Jupitero. The first few reviews that came out were pretty negative (THR, Variety, etc.), so it’s nice to see some positive ones, especially ones that talk specifically about the details of the film. I need to know as much as possible so I can prepare myself.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Yahoo has given a positive review with high praise for Tom.

      • et alors says:

        Yep, and AV Club just gave HR a B+ while giving Sunset Song a C and Black Mass a B-. More positive reviews are rolling in (along with the negative ones, of course).

        By the way, did general HR tickets for LFF go on sale earlier today? I saw some tweets with people upset over the tickets selling out in less than a minute.

      • et alors says:

        Never mind about the LFF question. Looks like it was some other event.

    • Heather says:

      “suddenly gets bored” ??? Only if he started reciting Shakespeare, but even then I wouldn’t kick him out.

      • TotallyBiased says:

        EN–you know there are links to Tom’s latest UNDP / UNICEF involvement (at least that we know of) in the comments of this post, right? I ‘gush’ over his voice, his charisma, and (for all I know about him) that he seems to be a rather good person. You are just as biased as I, own up to it!

  17. TotallyBiased says:

    Mmmm. Blue.
    He KNOWS what I like.

  18. Alice says:

    Is he dating Elisabeth Moss? He has his arm around her!

  19. Lilacflowers says:

    All three suits this weekend were Ralph Lauren. Maybe the sweater is too. Wore RL to Wimbledon too. Maybe a new contract?

    • et alors says:

      I hope so! Much more his style than the suits from the recent photo shoot, although I mostly liked those, too.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        The ones from the recent photo shoot didn’t fit

      • et alors says:

        Lilacflowers, I honestly think that fit was what they were going for. I would have preferred the suits to be a tad less snug, but I kind of dug the trendier look.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Et alors, I don’t think they were going for the rear view. Those pants, especially with the pale gray suit were way too tight for a man with toned thigh muscles.

    • Miss Jupitero says:

      Do film stars ever really buy their own designer clothes?

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Probably not the stuff they wear to events

      • Mary-Alice says:

        Depends on their status. And if they want to wear the same brand for a year at least, more often longer. At events, definitely not paying. Sandra Bullock or Johnny Depp can get all their clothes for free, for example. Same like contracts with cosmetics brands.

  20. seesittellsit says:

    If Hiddles wants to vibrate about something he should take a look at “Legend”/Tom Hardy smashing the UK box office in its opening week, and its 62% Rotten Tomatoes rating – compared to ISTL’s 13%, although High Rise I think will do better. Much as I love Hiddles’ impish smile and hints of the Mjolnir in his trousers, I think this is, despite Hiddles’ fevered gushing interviews, quotes from Seneca on Twitter, and mysterious Yes they are/No they aren’t THEO routine, going to be Hardy’s year at last. . .

    And while I like cable sweaters, dark blue, black, and brown shoes, somehow when put together they look . . . odd.

    Evans I believe is an OUT gay actor, although he keeps it quiet. Such a loss for one team!

    • TotallyBiased says:

      Honey, I think you’re on the wrong thread. When your man’s got talent, you don’t need to tear down other folks to build him up. The Bloke certainly doesn’t need (or, I suspect, want) his fans to go all pit bull on another fellow in order for his films to look good. At least, I don’t THINK he does!
      As for RT ratings, they can turn on a dime. Legend has dropped to 58% at the moment; IStL risen to 20%. Both seem to be deeply flawed biopics that may or may not be redeemed by their lead actors’ powerhouse performances.

      • seesittellsit says:

        I’m not tearing down anyone and I never said Hiddles wasn’t talented: I’ve got a shelf of DVDs of his performances to prove it. I’m reporting on stats that influence the upcoming awards season. So far as I can tell, Hiddles has gotten raves for his performance in ISTL but the movie sucks and will go down at the box office. This is a competition in their world . . . not mine. I’m just observing. I just think Hardy has gotten what Hiddles is after: a real breakout year with not one but two hit movies that aren’t based on Marvel comics. I think it’s Hardy’s year, that’s all. Certainly things can change – but 20% is still a lousy rating and 58% is still a very good one.

        I’m sure Hiddles will be fine.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        But your opening salvo sets it up like Hiddleston should be jealous of Hardy. There is no need for him to be, really. Hardy deserved accolades last year for Locke, in which his performance was better than some of the Oscar nominated ones. I’m not hearing that about Legend, which I do intend to see, and Mad Max won’t win him awards. His best hope is The Revenant. Hardy is also several years older and his career more established and his biggest stateside boost came from his Marvel role Bane. The other Tom H is younger and his career is developing just fine.

      • TotallyBiased says:

        Oh please–you certainly are shading Hiddles. Every sentence save your last knocks him. And 58% is certified Rotten on RT, if it matters. The Bloke’s been having ‘breakout’ years for a while now; y’all can enjoy them without snarky comments about gushing interviews or how one actor should vibrate with excitement about someone else’s film project rather than his own (seriously?)

    • Mary-Alice says:

      A more fair comparison would be with Eddie Redmayne and Tom doesn’t come further ahead. I think he should just sit down and think for himself, carefully and without jumping on projects, wherehe wants to be in five years, what kind of actor he sees after five years. Just like when you apply for a job and you are asked to provide a perspective, it’s a very useful exercise. Eddie has a short acting biography (relatively ) and an Oscar already with a second movie bringing his best talent forwards but without being a crap movie itself. That’s the trick, to choose good parts but to also try to see the project as a whole. If Tom cares, of course, thee are many actors who don’t . However, in this business you can afford many flops only after you’re quite big. Depp can afford it, Reaves, Bullock, Pitt, Jolie, Clooney still can because he had a very positive public reaction to bank on, etc. Hiddleston is far from there. He is a very good actor but not every role in every project will bring forward his best or serve him well. Hardy is a completely different story, he is a very versatile actor, few are in that league. He is also very business shrewd.

      • EN says:

        Agree there. I feel like Hiddleston lacks direction, doing all these projects with very little to show for it.

      • TotallyBiased says:

        I just can’t with you guys. ‘Very little to show for it’?
        I suppose anything less than #1 movie in the country (oh,wait–he’s been there) and a little gold man statue is just nothing to write home about where you’re concerned.
        Me, I’m just pleased with a body of work that means I’d pay money to see each and everyone of his movies in a theatre. (Okay, except for Exhibition–there’d have to be a Q and A with the director to get me to see that in a theatre.)
        Just have to ask what kind of standards would look at the last eight years and say not much to show for it.

      • Allegra says:

        @TotallyBiased :

        Well said! Nothing Tom does will please them.
        I think none of them appreciate him as an actor or as a person.

      • Anon222 says:

        The bloke is good enough, there’s no need to tear others down to build him up. You are doing him a disservice by making it sounds like he needs you to tear others down for him. There’s always someone better than him and someone not as good.

        Hiddles has direction, it’s just not the direction that you like. If you don’t like his choices, then don’t watch him. I’m sure he will be fine without your support. He got works, he’s working non-stop, in projects that he likes to work on, making decent pays for himself. He’s booked thru until end of next year. Don’t see what’s wrong with his career.

      • Gingerly says:

        I agree with Anon222. Hiddles has direction and a clear goal, which is simply he does what he wants – diversifying roles, stretching himself as an actor, and working with the directors whose works interest him. You may say that he is amateurish or naive but I like him that way. And frankly I am not sure a thoroughly strategic planning helps a professional in the long run. It may be helpful at first but it can also narrow the paths we can choose at our own risks. I do think he is ambitious just like other actors. He works hard and always does his promotions like mad, but in choosing his works he has other purposes too.

        I suspect in choosing ISTL he was pretty aware that he could fail with a weak, inexperienced director but he anyway wanted to play the role, an American singer with a tragic history. As for the High-rise, I think he just wanted to work with Ben Wheatley and did not think about his Hollywood career or box office/distribution, or showing off his best part at all. As an indie film lover, I appreciate his decision to join the film.

        I don’t know whether he will become an A-list actor or not and I don’t care. Of course he does care, but he wants other things too. He wants to do more Shakespearean roles, do more stage works, or want to win Olivier sometime, or to run in a jungle with giant mokeys, etc..

        By the way, I think Hiddles is very versatile.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        How, exactly, did Jupiter Ascending fit into that brilliant “look at the project” five year plan?

        Grizzly II: the Concert and Return of the Killer Tomatoes appeared on his CV when Clooney was hitting 30 years old. By the time he was Tom’s age, his career was still limited to bit parts in television series. What did he have to how for those flops? Did they end his career? No.

        Pitt was doing soap operas, commercials, and bit parts of television for many years before he got noticed in Thelma & Louise.

        Arizona Dream? Nick of Time? Private Resort? The Brave? The Astronaut’s Wife? The Ninth Gate? The Man Who Cried? Depp’s career was going nowhere for years. What did he have to show for any of those? He survived too.

        Yes, Tom should just give it up. Retire. Go study accounting. And take all those other actors who don’t have Oscar nominations with him, like: Alan Rickman, Kevin Bacon, Bill Nighy. The list goes on and on.

      • Lise says:

        Neither seesittellsit or Mary_Alice were being mean or unreasonable.

        People are allowed to think Tom isn’t the most amazing thing ever on a perfect career path unless only gushing is allowed here now.

      • TotallyBiased says:

        Well, you missed the point completely, didn’t you? Have another look at the conversational thread. Not to mention denigrating another’s points by exaggerating them into oblivion is a childish tactic. See what I did there?

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Meh, he takes roles that get him excited. Some won’t do as well as others and most of that is out of his control. He’s mixing things up between blockbusters, theater, independent films and is willing to take risks. He doesn’t have to be an A-lister to be successful. He’s doing better than most of his peers and his talent and work ethic, he’ll stay employed.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Lise, negative opinions are expressed all the time. People’s taste differs. But others have the right to counter those opinions.

        One of those above stated just the other day that she was unfamiliar with HIddleston’s work and his charitable efforts but that isn’t stopping her from putting forth her views on what she thinks is wrong with him.

      • EN says:

        > I just can’t with you guys. ‘Very little to show for it’?

        @TotallyBiased, you are biased, aren’t you. Just to be clear once and for all , I like Hiddleston. I am not picking on him. I am just being objective.
        He is in his prime now, he has to make it in the next 2-3 years or never and this year is so far a disappointment.

        >One of those above stated just the other day that she was unfamiliar with HIddleston’s work and his charitable efforts but that isn’t stopping her from putting forth her views on what she thinks is wrong with him.

        And that was me ( not someone), and I am familiar with of his charitable work and also of Redmayne’s charitable work, not of it. And the way people attacked me on that thread over it was so strange. Yeah, I like several actors but I don’t know everything about them. That is normal. And that actually means I can be more objective that most posting here since I am not as invested as the rest,

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @En, you might really want to go back and read what you wrote on that other thread, in which you very clearly stated that you were invested in a certain actor and that you liked him more because of his charitable work, which you did not think the others did.

      • EN says:

        > in which you very clearly stated that you were invested in a certain actor and that you liked him more because of his charitable work, which you did not think the others did.

        And I came to that based on what I come across in the news , the blogs and comments.
        When people starting saying Hiddleston does this and that, I admitted that I don’t know “all”. Not do I know “all” about the other actor.

        It could be really just the impact of the media and Hiddleston might be really civil minded. But just look at this article – what are the people gushing about? About how handsome and desirable Tom is, not about his civil projects.

        And I still can judge his work because his work I am pretty familiar with.

      • Lisa says:

        I saw it just fine, TotallyBiased. One person felt another actor is having the better year, the other felt Tom is gambling a bit too much career-wise. Both used reasonable comparisons on a totally subjective issue, and neither implied Tom was a bad person or actor. And then some fangirls attacked, complete with pot calling kettle.

        That aside, completely agree with Nutballs.

      • TotallyBiased says:

        More buzzwords: when fangirls attack! The poster flat out said Hiddleston should be vibrating about their favorite actor instead, and in every sentence contrasted Hiddleston negatively with their fave. I would have perceived the same shade had it been an actor I couldn’t care less about. The semantics are definitively negative in unnecessary ways. Life shouldn’t be about tearing someone, anyone else down to build yourself or your vested interests up.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      One can hate an actor. One can love an actor. But the constant building up of this or that actor by tearing down another is what people find objectionable.

  21. koko says:

    I just read where they’re remaking Mary Poppins. I would love to see Tom in the DVD role of “Burt” the chimney sweep. Any thoughts?

  22. Heather says:

    Not a fan of his knitwear, I do miss the white shirt/grey waistcoat ensemble from Thor 2/comic con a couple of years ago. Those pants left nothing to the imagination either.

    He seems to have gone for the casual look this weekend when not taking the crochet tie out for it’s nightly spin with the Ralph Lauren suits. I love his black coat, and even the scuffed ariats that he’s had for years. 🙂

  23. Miss Jupitero says:

    In other news, I got my hands on that mysterious first draft of Crimson Peak (I feel so dirty).

    I WILL NOT SPOIL. I swears on the precious. But I am soooo looking forward to seeing this!

    • TotallyBiased says:

      No, seriously. Thank you. 😉

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        Please. I know better. 🙂

        My problem is if you put spoilers in my hand, I *will* read them. And I read them.

        And… and…. *ball gag*

      • Dara says:

        We’ve officially entered ‘no spoilers’ territory for Crimson Peak. I really want to see that movie knowing as little as possible about the plot. And I have absolutely no willpower, if it’s there I will read it. I’ve been a good girl (mostly) for a year, and there’s only a few more weeks to go.

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        No probo Dara. The big thing I gleaned from reading this early script is the less you know the more delighted you will be. I’ll leave it at that.

      • et alors says:

        Miss Jupitero, reportedly, there have been many revisions since the first draft that was leaked, so what you read may not bear much resemblance to the end product. Just in case your excitement has been dampened after reading it. 🙂

    • jammypants says:

      I survived for very long without spoilers for this so I’ll wait another month 😛

    • Grace says:

      Spoilers never bothered me – I’m the sort of person who sometimes reads a book from the end to the beginning. But you guys have a point. We’ve waited this long, a few more weeks won’t hurt. So I will be here waiting, waiting, waiting…

      … until a glow of crimson touched the edge of sky, at its peak red sun started to emerge…

      Do crimson and red quality as redundant?

    • NUTBALLS says:

      You will spill in one month right, Miss Jupitero?

      Would this be the BennyBatch version?

    • Ladytron2000 says:

      But what if we WANT spoilers??!?!?

      I also would like to know how you got your hot little hands on that (without incriminating yourself, of course.)

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        Float on over to the Crimson Peak ImDB page message boards, Ladytron2000, if this is what you wish. The subject comes up, and there is a certain someone on the board who will pm you the link.

        Nutballs, I don’t actually know when this was written, but it is an early draft. No actors specified in any way.

      • ladytron2000 says:

        MissJ, done & DONE! Thank you.

        Er, all I can say is I hope SOMEONE did a major overhaul :/

  24. et alors says:

    New 30-second Crimson Peak TV(?) trailer featuring a few scenes we haven’t seen before.

    Also, I saw something about Tom being on ITV’s This Morning tomorrow. Does that mean he’s left Toronto?

    • TotallyBiased says:

      Evidently he will be plugging his latest good works involvement. This is a big campaign, with a LOT of people involved.

    • Miss Jupitero says:

      THAT was a nice 30 seconds. 🙂 Squee! Okay time for me to watch all the trailers slo-mo with a nice glass of scotch.

      It’s been rough day at work. I need this movie, like…. right now!

    • Dara says:

      Lizzie has left – there was a pap photo of her at the Toronto airport on Instagram. I’m assuming she’s leaving rather than arriving – she’s getting out of the car with passport in hand.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        She’s left the building, the country and Tom threads.

      • Grace says:

        Haha! @nutballs, I always love your perspective!

      • Lilacflowers says:

        It must be so easy to get dressed when all your articles of clothing are lumpy, shapeless, black pieces. No fear of clashing colors. Of course, you could mistake a skirt for a poncho but nobody will notice

      • NUTBALLS says:

        She’s sister darkness alright. I just don’t get how women with means can dress so boringly awful. She can hit it out of the ballpark when she makes an effort.

      • et alors says:

        Lizzie’s had some misses, but I think, overall, her style is young and fresh. Tom and Lorenzo loved her asymmetrical top and black pants from Saturday night, which was the general consensus on the boards there, and the girls at Go Fug Yourself usually like what she wears. Her clothes may not be revealing and skin-tight, but she definitely doesn’t dress like her sisters.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        The Fug Girls are usually unfugging her outfit or putting it to a vote. They’ve only given her a few “well-played”. I tend to agree with them overall.

        They loved the white CK dress from last week. Still waiting for them to fully cover TIFF fashion, which I think would be a hoot since most ensembles I saw weren’t great.

      • et alors says:

        I don’t think that’s the case at all for GFY, NUTBALLS, at least since last year’s awful Met Gala dress. She’s had a handful of outfits that they haven’t been crazy about, but most of the time, they say her outfits seem to work on her. Just check out her tag on GFY. TLO have criticized her more for dressing too matronly than GFY.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        et alors, you and I must have a different set of spectacles when we view her tag, cus I mainly see Fug. No worries… po-tay-to, po-tah-to.

        But you need to see the post Heather put up on TIFF, especially the last frame.

      • et alors says:

        NUTBALLS, I’m pretty sure everyone is on the same page in regards to the Obando (Party City deluxe Halloween witch costume was my favorite description that I’ve seen), but other than the gifting lounge combo of shorts/straitjacket, they’ve seemed to enjoy her style, like the majority of her outfits for the AoU promo tour and the Miu Miu dress. What I get from GFY is that, for them, the outfits may not be that great, but Lizzie makes them work overall. Also, as I said, “most of the time.”

        I love the Fug Girls, BTW. I’ve been following them since their TWoP days. Also, as an aside, I was so thrilled when my favorite TWoP writer, Linda Holmes aka Miss Alli, tweeted that ISTL wasn’t good but Tom was great.

        Also, yes to the last frame. You know how much Tom loves dessert.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        “You know how much Tom loves dessert.”

        He loves cake out a box, like I do.

        I’ll see myself out.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Perhaps, or could be something taped earlier.He has been doing interviews for days that we haven’t seen

    • Twilly says:

      There were 2 evening/night flight from Toronto to London last night, so it’s probably true.

  25. Beach girl says:

    Isn’t it Fashion Week in NY?

    • Allegra says:

      Want do you mean?

      And finally, Tom interview with Lainey:

      And I should say it is really good!

      • A. Key says:

        THAT is the witty sarcastic bitchy Lainey?!
        She’s a goddamn sweetheart at first sight 😀

      • Dara says:

        @A. Key – she’s a charmer in person. I went to an event she did when her book was released and she captivated a ballroom full of people for well over an hour – sweet, funny, inspiring, no-nonsense, gossipy, a little bit of everything actually – but you could tell underneath it all is a seriously tough cookie who takes no crap from anyone.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        That was a lovely interview and Tom was quite eloquent.

      • TotallyBiased says:

        Yep, Lainey is a full-on Dragonfly again!

      • Lilacflowers says:

        That blue shirt. I need to take it off him and wrap it around myself.

        That was a very well done, little interview. She allowed him freedom to talk in a relaxed manner without letting him go off on tangents.

      • Madly says:

        I can get a one second video of that only. Is there a different link?

      • TotallyBiased says:

        Madly–I had a lot of difficulty with the video on my mobile, try on a pc or tablet. Failing that, wait a day or two and google etalk Canada TIFF Hiddleston. SOMEONE will no doubt have it on YouTube.

      • Allegra says:

        Try another browser. The first time I used Chrome, then I have to change to
        Internet Explorer or Mozzila Firefox.

  26. Annaliese says:

    I’ve seen several references to “Elizabeth Moss” here, and I’m confused. I thought his co-star in ISTL was Elizabeth OLSON, younger sister of the infamous twins Ashley and Mary-Kate. Elisabeth Moss is someone else entirely.

    And I thought the body language between Hiddleston and Olson was really interesting. They leaned in to each other all the way through the interview. Looks very much like a link there.

    • Heather says:

      He’s in HIgh Rise with Elizabeth Moss, that’s Moss with Tom and Luke Evans in the photos above at the High Rise press conference.

    • Catherine says:

      Annaliese, Tom had 2 films screening at TIFF ISTL and High Rise (co-starring Moss) the above pics are from the latter screening. As for him and Olsen they obviously get on well/are friends (rumoured more than that) so that makes sense.

    • Annaliese says:

      Ah. The man has too many Lizzies in his life. Got it. Thanks.

  27. ctkat1 says:

    I hope this movie gets better reviews that “I Saw the Light.”

  28. Fatom says:

    Im not into clean cut guys but man since Only lovers… he’s the hottest thing on screen for me. i even went to Tangier this year.

  29. Lilacflowers says:

    And Rodney Crowell, partner in the ISTL bromance that was going on at this time last year, just tweeted/posted on his FB page a picture of him and Tom, wearing the black jacket, pants, and dark t-shirt of sex from TIFF, that he says was taken in New York.

    These also just appeared. I think Sixer will like this leggy one.

    I like this one.

  30. Dara says:

    Looks like Tom was at Rodney’s concert in NYC on Tuesday.

    That ITV thing for Wednesday must be pre-taped or by satellite or something.

  31. Heather says:

    Not only is Tom in NYC to see Rodney, but it looks like it’s because the Crimson Peak promo is kicking into gear!

    “Last night in Toronto, off to New York tomorrow to interview Guillermo Del Toro, Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain!” –

  32. TotallyBiased says:

    Okay, it doesn’t really mean anything. But I’m sure it pleases Luke. 🙂

  33. et alors says:

    Looks like there might be special screenings of CP in NY, LA, and SF coming up. I need more info on the SF one.

    Also, an Awards Daily editor tweeted about seeing CP on Sunday, although he didn’t indicate whether he’d already seen it or was going to see it.

    • Allegra says:

      @et alors:

      I saw the review that Ana Maria Bahiana did for CP.
      Now she made an interview with Tom about ISTL and it ´s good.
      The link is here:

      • P'enny says:

        its a good interview

      • Allegra says:

        Here one more.
        Etalk – TomHiddleston, Jeremy I, Luke E and more on the TIFF red carpet of ‘High Rise’:

  34. Beach girl says:

    According to Playlist Universal has shelved plans for Pac Rim2. Legendary had to foot the bill for CP because Universal didn’t want to pay that much for an R rated movie and they passed on SI, which is now with Warner (and Legendary). A stressed relationship.

  35. et alors says:

    For anybody in the Toronto area, it looks like they’re holding a CP screening there, and this blogger has passes.
