Tom Hiddleston looked amazing at the ‘High Rise’ photocall: would you hit it?


This is basically the closest thing to p0rn around these parts. Here are some pics from today’s High Rise photocall at the San Sebastian International Film Festival in Spain. Considering the way yesterday’s photos were staged, I honestly thought that those pics were for the photocall, but nope. Those pics were just Tom Hiddleston arriving at the hotel in San Sebastian. These are the pics from the photocall, and they’re lovely. Something about Spain… it really agrees with Tom. It’s like he’s more attractive and suave in Spain, maybe? Is it the lighting? Is it his hair? I can’t decide. But these photos make me forget that Hiddles is actually a dancing bear who recites poetry to passing swans.

It’s been said many times before, but Tom is having one of those years where he’s going to be in our faces for several months as he promotes back-to-back projects. Benedict Cumberbatch had that kind of year in 2014, and Michael Fassbender had that kind of year back in 2011. That kind of year changes an actor, as they go from a cult-like fandom to mainstream. I’m not saying Tom doesn’t have mainstream success already – he totally does, although he’s not really a household name yet. “The Mainstream” knows him as Loki, not Tom Hiddleston. While Tom might not end up with any major awards nominations this year, I think the fact that he’s going to be everywhere for months will definitely change his profile. I hope he’s ready.

Oh, and Tom was the most-tweeted-about person/event/film at the Toronto International Film Festival. Tom was at TIFF to promote High Rise and I Saw the Light back-to-back, and he apparently broke Canadian Twitter or something. Which just goes to show… he’s more famous on the internet than in real life. That’s something Benedict had to deal with too.

PS… Sienna Miller’s dress is by Victoria Beckham. I like it, but that’s probably because it reminds me of Vivienne Westwood. I don’t think there’s anything happening between Tom and Sienna, by the way. She doesn’t go for clean-cut Boy Scout types and he doesn’t seem to go for party girls.

    I love his smile (swoon)….

  2. Hawkeye says:

    Tom Hiddleston: so dashing and so dreamy!

  3. Veronica says:

    Would I hit it? Like a hurricane on the coast.

  4. quoting-shakespeare-to-ducks says:

    It’s ducks. Ducks, not swans. (If you’re thinking of that article where he’s on a rowboat with the interviewer) Although to be fair, he’s probably read to swans, too. And puppies. And his teddy bears.

  5. Ana says:


    That girl is messing up the picture with that hideous dress

  6. Ab Fab says:

    So scrumptious. Like a delectable scone with black currant jam….

  7. bread says:

    I have to admit, I didn’t get his appeal for a long time but I’m looking at that picture of him smiling alone and I think I’m starting to understand. There’s an innate charm to him that’s really infectious.

    • Saks says:

      I don’t know why but I’m having the opposite effect. I’ve loved Hiddles since Midnight in Paris, but lately I’m just not feeling it. I’m still super excited for Crimson Peak though

      • jammypants says:

        It happens. It goes in and out for me sometimes. Last year, I was actually productive because he went MIA and I didn’t crush as hard.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      He’s even better in motion… and everyone who sees him in person says pictures don’t do him justice.

      • bread says:

        Really? *runs off to check youtube*

      • NUTBALLS says:

        bread… Let me narrow things down for you:

        Cookie Monster
        Save or Kill
        MTV Slumber Party
        Comic Con 2013
        Nerd HQ
        Times Talk Madrid

      • neutral says:

        Nutballs, that Times Talk Madrid – that’s the first time I really thought “God, he is one beautiful man” and having watched the Jeremy Irons interview the night before, I guess he thought so too. ☺

      • neutral says:

        Mind you, that pic from ISTL where he is lying back in the car with the hat tilted forward…………………………

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Ignoring the thought that the backseat shot is probably leading to Hank’s death…

        That snap definitely gave me thoughts as to what I’d do when he’s in position. 🙂

      • TotallyBiased says:

        Nutty–allow me to reassure you. His eyes look too open and it is both daytime and not winter (note green grass in background, visible through car window.). Does that help? 😉

      • neutral says:

        I thought he looked a bit too healthy!!

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Bread, skip all that and just listen to him read “may i feel” by ee cummings. It is on youtube. Be sure you are alone. NSFW. Actually, the language is perfectly fine; it is poetry after all. But it is killer and just listening to him recite it leaves one a wreck.

  8. Lilacflowers says:

    Twice in one day! The flamenco performance on the veranda will be at 3. Then more tapas. The sangria is flowing freely. Tom loves Spain.

    Sienna really needs to apologize for stealing that picnic cloth.

    • Abby_J says:

      Hahaha! But the dress goes from daytime to picnic in just 30 seconds.

      He does appear to look quite yummy in Spain.

      • Ankhel says:

        I don’t trust Sienna’s motives for wearing that picnic blanket. What if she means to be found lying down, with tea, scones and cucumber sandwiches in her lap? It might be a cunning trap for someone very British, I’m just saying.

      • Abby_J says:

        @ Ankhel

        HAHA! Yes! It’s obviously a Tommy trap!

    • Elisa the I. says:

      Yay! Siesta with El Señor!

    • p'enny says:

      hahha she is walking table – wish she get the hell of way from my boys!

      • Catherine says:

        It looks like she’s grabbing Luke’s arse in one of those pics + the whole, smug look-at-me aren’t-I-the-bees-knees look. No love, it looks like you’re wearing a picnic blanket.

  9. Esteph says:

    Excuse me ladies (and gents) while I go get my man Tom from Spain 😉

  10. NUTBALLS says:

    50 ways to Sunday, Kaiser. Even more if Tom’s creative juices are flowing. 😉

  11. Smd says:

    My boyfriend is the bees knees!! He is just getting better and better…ah..I can get through this week on these pictures alone!

  12. Anna says:

    ****, he looks good.

  13. NUTBALLS says:

    Has anyone put his face on a chair yet? I need one, pronto.

  14. et alors says:

    Good interview in Interview Magazine about ISTL, HR, and working with Ben Wheatley and Rodney Crowell.

  15. p'enny says:

    heh! 2.1 billion people have social media accounts!
    And there are 3 billion active Internet users

    Internet famous isnt a bad place to be.

  16. seesittellsit says:

    Yes. Yes, yes, yes, she said, Yes, I will, yes.

  17. Crocuta says:

    Bendy & Hiddles being more famous on the internet than in real life – well, welcome to 2015. In this day and age, that actually counts.

    I don’t remember the last time I bought a gossip or celebrity magazine. I find everything online (and both these men are there galore). I get my news from the internet because all our magazines have internet editions. I learn about new films on the internet (where both Bendy & Hiddles are heavily promoted). And I’m not even from the internet generation!

    Sure the problem occurs when fans also get films online instead of going to the cinema, but the movie market has changed quite a bit since I was a kid. Back then you HAD to go to the movies to see your star (videotapes came out much later). Actors in general don’t draw crowds of fans to the cinemas anymore (AMC were discussing this a lot last year). The action, the effects, the fancy pictures do – the things you can’t fully experience at home. But men and women – no. The time of the big names is passing.

    So internet fame is the new big thing. It seems odd to us oldies but the new generations will possibly only know that. And studios are aware of it, too. So Bendy & Hiddles are in a better place than you give them credit 😉

    • Mary-Alice says:

      Not when you mean business where “the oldies” are in charge. It still doesn’t count for much which is obvious if you look at the most desired by producers names to put first on the poster.

  18. Dani says:

    I know everyone will hate me for this but I ship a dirty affair between Tom and Sienna so hard. Like, just a month of raunchiness and photo ops.

    • browniecakes says:

      While I take Sienna dress shopping, and perhaps to the hair salon if time allows, I plan to pick her brain about TH and Hunnam and why not, Daniel Craig too. That girl has dirty knowledge I want shared.

      • Dara says:

        Don’t forget to stop at the unmentionables counter when you take the girl shopping. Has she not been introduced to the concept of a brassiere, perhaps a tasty pasty or two, something…anything.

        I thought the tablecloth dress was bad enough, but the flesh colored satin number she wore to the actual screening was actually worse imo. I think she’s looked like a hot mess in the last 48 hours, which I guess is not much different than how she’s looked for the last two years.

      • Allegra says:

        And i never understood why the british press called her the ” it girl”.

    • antipodean says:

      Nothing happening between Sienna and Hiddles? Nothing but tea and crumpets! (She said knowingly, nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more).

    • jammypants says:

      judging by his romp onscreen with her, I say go for it!

    • chelsea says:

      By the looks of things at that press conference, so does she.

  19. Loves Gossip says:

    Forget Tom Hiddleston. More Luke Evans, please!!!😍

  20. et alors says:

    New suit! Honestly, though, I’m not crazy about what anyone is wearing for today’s HR premiere.

    • neutral says:

      Well Tom’s is fine, Sienna looks as if she has her nightdress on and Luke’s looks a bit spivey. But then I don’t like loud check suits.

      • et alors says:

        Tom’s suit is well-fitted, as usual, but it’s kind of boring after the display we saw at TIFF. Luke is more adventurous and usually dresses well, but I think this suit is too much. No comment on Sienna’s dress, although I will say I actually really like her VB dress pictured above.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      I liked his casual wear from yesterday and this morning much better.

      It’s probably best that I just take it off of him.

  21. TotallyBiased says:

    Just in case there were any doubt (HAH!)
    I would hit it on a boat.
    I would hit it with a goat.
    I would hit it in the rain.
    I would hit it on a train.
    I would hit it in the dark! I would hit it in a tree!
    I would hit it in a car! I would hit it–let me be!
    I would hit it in a box.
    I would hit it with a fox. (Well, yes….he is.)
    I would hit it in a house.
    I would hit it with a mouse.
    I would hit it here or there.
    I would hit it ANYWHERE!
    sigh. Signed, TeeBee’s poor overwhelmed libido, still attempting to recover from the 20 seconds or so of The Night Manager in BBC’s latest show reel.
