Taylor Swift & Tom Hiddleston danced together a lot at the Met Gala, hmm…

wenn23819716

I never, in a million years, would have put Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift together. Like, it never would have occurred to me that they might get along, romantically or otherwise. But Tom and Tay spent time together at the Met Gala and then did an after-party together at the Boom Boom Room at the Standard. According to Us Weekly:

Swift, 26, and Hiddleston, 35, bonded throughout the soiree and even arrived together at the official Met Gala afterparty at Boom Boom Room at the Standard Hotel in downtown Manhattan shortly after midnight. An inside observer tells Us Weekly that the twosome stuck together all night and appeared to be really good friends.

[From Us Weekly]

Slow your roll, Dragonflies! By all accounts, Taylor is still with Calvin Harris. Even though her official date was Selena Gomez and no one is sure why Calvin Harris didn’t come to the Met Gala. But Taylor likes boys and she likes to flirt. And Tom maybe has a thing for American girls. And blondes, perhaps. Not only did Tom and Tay spend some time together for HOURS, they were also dancing up a storm. And there’s video evidence. Here they are dancing to Beyonce:

And here they are dancing to T.I. Tom looks really sweaty here. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen him dance. He loves to dance. He dances like no one’s watching.

So what’s going on between Tom and Tay? Met Gala buddies or something more? They probably bonded about their equally crazy fan-bases. Just know, if Taylor ever gets her hooks into Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba or Clive Owen, there will be a RECKONING. I will destroy her!!

    Uh oh Tay. You in danger girl.

  2. Naya says:

    Lmao at those “dance moves”. I dont know if this is ok to say but honestly Taylor + Hiddles = the whitest white people I have ever seen.

    • DahliaDee says:

      I’m as white as bread, and I concur.

    • D says:

      I kinda like when people who can’t really dance, do it anyway, because they’re having a good time and they just don’t care.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Me, too, because can’t but I do.

      • Zapp Brannigan says:

        I can’t dance at all but after a few gins I think I am Baryshnikov, sadly I look more Gorbachev. Still fun times are had.

      • Original T.C. says:

        I don’t usually read Hiddles posts but I got to give the man credit for how serious he takes his dancing.LOL. Any guy game enough to get on the dance floor and creating dance routine is awesome in my book. So go Hiddles!

      • Locke Lamora says:

        I do to because I’m not like that at all. I can’t dance and I’m very self-conscious about it, so it’s great to see people who are not.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        @Locke Lamora, I used to be so self conscious about dancing and I was miserable if somebody tried to make me dance. Then, I just looked at everybody dancing one time at a party, and you know what? Most people are terrible dancers. And they aren’t really even looking at each other or being critical. So I just started dancing and I suck but it’s really fun. So far no one has pointed at me and laughed or thrown me off the floor.

      • Kitten says:

        Your comment made me smile and you’re right. It’s always fun at a wedding or whatever when you see all the bad dancers come out just to have a good time.

        That being said, Naya is right that this is like the whitest coupling ever. Then again, Naya’s never seen my BF and I on the dance floor so…
        Actually my BF refuses to dance but I will dance my ass off if I have enough drinks in me and the music is right.

      • Sixer says:

        I can only dance sober. Minute tolerance to alcohol in these ‘ere parts. I’ve passed out before I can hit the dance floor.

      • KB says:

        I usually agree, except 1. Taylor was trying to be all sexy with her hands in her hair, and 2. I don’t like Taylor.

      • Ana says:

        i agree. dancing is just fun

      • Cranberry says:

        Oh common. How’s he supposed to dance good in a tux? He may not be dancing good in these video clips, but there’s plenty videos of Tom dancing damn well. Check him out on the Chatty Man show in 2013.

      • claire says:

        Exactly. That’s what it’s about. Having fun.

    • Marty says:

      @Naya- you’re not wrong.

    • Allegra says:

      Maybe you should try Ed Sheeram on vacation.

    • HeyThere! says:

      LOL I thought the same thing. Look, I have been to weddings where I would hang with the people who had no shame in dancing and be fun. That looks like what they are doing. LOL Clearly nothing romantic, just hanging at the party.

    • Wiffie says:

      But they look like they are having a BLAST! Sweaty, goofy, weddingy dance fun.

      I dance like a lame 30 something old lady too but my sister and I break it down like we are in our kitchen doing dishes and nobody can see.

      Better than being stuffy and insecure and not doing something you want.

      You dance, Hiddlor! You keep dancing and don’t stop!

    • Paula says:

      I’m probably the only one who didn’t think it was that bad? (and yes, whiter than bread here)

      • Lauren II says:

        I thought the dancing was decent. Just watched the video again. Taylor and Hiddles have some chemistry goin’ on.
        I adore Hiddles. I don’t know who Taylor is anymore – I think she looks bangin’ in her space slut dress.

    • Saks says:

      Has Hiddleston taken dancing lessons? if he did he should ask for his money back. Just joking, but in all seriousness it’s nice to see them just having fun at the party

  3. InvaderTak says:

    She followed him on Twitter a long time ago, so she’s a fan. They were at a party having a good time. The rest is speculation. Move along.

    • Erinn says:

      Even the speculation was so tame compared to normal. “They appeared to be really good friends” haha. I kind of love what a non-story this all is.

    • Allegra says:

      Yes, she follows him since the end of 2014.
      He just followed her back recently. I think after Skull Island.

  4. Abbott says:

    They look like those crazy balloon people that flail around outside of used car parking lots.

    • Lindy79 says:

      HAHAHAHAHA

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Omg, I love those. I can’t explain, they are the opposite of what I usually love, but they make me so happy when I see them. Lol

      • Lucrezia says:

        Yeah, there’s something inexplicably charming about those air dancing balloon things.

        Humans find kittens, puppies etc adorable because they hit our “aw! it’s a baby!” reflex. Even tiny earth-moving trucks/bulldozers etc can be “cute” in that way. But the dancing balloons … I have no idea why they are so pleasant to look at. They’re not cute, exactly, it’s something else.

        Even weirder: why are they almost exclusively used outside used-car lots? I’m in Oz and I knew exactly what Abbott was talking about.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Excellent points, all. I don’t know what it is – maybe they look like a toy come alive? That’s not quite it. They just look so happy. And yes, I realize I sound like a nut, so I appreciate your coming down this road with me. As for the used car lots only thing, I have no idea. Definitely a phenom.

      • Esmom says:

        There was a really cute/funny scene in this season of Better Call Saul about one of those things. It’s funny how people are charmed by them. I wonder how effective they are at actually helping to sell cars, though?

      • I Choose Me says:

        Those things give me the serious creeps. Also sheep. Sheep terrify me. Dunno why.

    • doofus says:

      do you watch Always Sunny in Philadelphia? There was a joke on one of the episodes about one of the characters “learning how to dance” by watching one of those things.

      • Abbott says:

        I’ve never watched but I’ll have to check it out. It’s the only thing I can think of when watching Taylor dance.

    • Erinn says:

      There’s a running gag on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia that the character Dee dances like one. There’s an episode where she’s standing beside one, dancing.

    • lilacflowers says:

      Around here, they tend to be in the parking lots of restaurants featuring Brazilian, Dominican, or Cuban food. They make me happy. Perhaps because they also make me think of fried platanos.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      They remind me of the people on street corners dancing and twirling their cardboard signs locally-owned businesses!

    • Wiffie says:

      Wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man!

    • Cranberry says:

      They should make a new dance called “flailing balloon people” dance.

  5. als says:

    Maybe these two just like going to parties and actually have fun and dance instead of taking selfies and pouting.

    • Christina says:

      +1000

      • Leah C says:

        If there is a dance floor I expect people to dance. It is sad to see everybody either too “cool” or too “scared” to get out there and have a good time. Go Taylor and Hiddles!

    • susiecue says:

      You know that’s so true. I don’t particularly like either of them, but nothing’s worse at a party than people who are “too cool” to let loose and have a fun, silly time.

  6. Nancy says:

    I just read the funniest story ever on twitter, she is morphing into Jenny from Gossip Girl. Lol….side by side they looked like twins. Her dancing skills? Elaine from Seinfeld…..if you never saw the episode, it was hysterical.

  7. perplexed says:

    I thought their dancing would be better.

  8. Lindy79 says:

    This is hilariously bad dancing but I can’t help but smile. I’d rather see this than people sitting there too cool to get up and let loose.

  9. Maria says:

    why do people automatically assume everyone is monogamous? Taylor is a touring musician, she wont be celibate for weeks or months. women have needs too and if you have your pick of tall handsome men who would say no?

    • Tami says:

      I guess I assume it about her because she exudes no sex appeal whatsoever. I think she lusts over wedding dresses and place settings not sex.
      I am not cosigning this relationship-although they are both adorably + dorky=adorkable. So if I weren’t so jealous about the Hidd -they wold be perfect for each other.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Because you don’t find her sexy, you think she doesn’t have any sexuality at all? That’s a dehumanizing thing to put on someone.

    • OriginallyBlue says:

      Well her tour is over now and she said she’s taking a break. Plus she just finished gushing over her boyfriend and celebrated their 1 year anniversary a few weeks ago. There isn’t anything with her and Tom, just 2 nerds having fun.

    • Erinn says:

      Umm I’d say no if I made a commitment to someone. If she needed to go have romps because she just can’t resist, I doubt she’d be in a relationship.

    • CornyBlue says:

      Firstly because polyamory is obviously not a very explored concept and is not in the limelight and Taylor also sells a very wholesome image so it would be harder from her.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      Maria, it defies my comprehension why anyone who travels and is away from home for long periods of time, surrounded by gorgeous, sexy men and women who want to bed them is thought to be celibate when not in a public relationship or monogamous when they are. Fans are easily convinced that the wholesome image that their favorite stars have cultivated are actually based in reality.

      Actors, musicians & athletes are given countless opportunities to have casual sex while they’re away from home and to me, it’s naive to assume that they aren’t taking advantage of it. But, it’s bad publicity for actors in particular, who rely on being liked and marketable to staying employed, so they will keep that part of themselves hidden for obvious reasons.

      • Magnoliarose says:

        I agree. Sometimes people can’t deal with the fact that their relationships are different. The rules are different and an image is just what they reveal and manipulate.

  10. Sixer says:

    Oh my lord in heaven. I even watched the videos WITHOUT AN OFFER OF CAKE. I will be laughing for months.

    Even the LEGS cannot maintain my LEGS ladyboner at the sight of that. Still, you can’t knock the funniest piece of LEGS thirst ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, can you? The man is dedicated to his cause.

    • Marty says:

      That’s more twee then I ever thought I’d see in a 9 second video.

      • Sixer says:

        I will say this for it: it has just made my day infinitely better. I may be a LEGS naysayer but I’d rather see him representing me abroad than any of the current crop who are supposedly leading our country. At least all he does is find someone more famous than he is and dance like a desperate plonker. For that, I salute him.

        (I’ve just watched the weekly parliamentary pantomime known as PMQs, in which two middle-aged white men screamed YOU’RE MORE RACIST THAN ME at each other for half an hour. British politics is repulsive at the moment. It’s not just you guys with your Cruzs and your Trumps).

      • Marty says:

        Oh I hear ya. I’ve taken to watching cute animal videos everyday just to bring myself back to neutral.

        I read a great quote the other day that said “I want to be politically informed, but I also want to have a good day. See my problem?”.

        Summed up how I feel perfectly.

      • Allegra says:

        Yes, he is kind dork, but he is also a gentleman .
        Tom is not the kind of person who slaps his costar , punches his film director or treats badly journalists like Tom Hardy.
        He treats everybody with respect and kindness.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Now it’s just Trump… *grabs the bottle*

        Welcome back, dear Sixer!

      • Sixer says:

        That’s another thing I despise about politics, Allegra. Whataboutery. Don’t do it. It’s just petty and it doesn’t make me like LEGS more, I assure you.

        Marty – perfect quote! And they wonder why people don’t vote.

        Nuts – I thank you. I almost died of overwork during the last week. Or at least, that’s my story and you must not listen to Mr Sixer who says, “You did it while wearing your jammies, so it doesn’t count.” Russnfussn.

      • Allegra says:

        @Sixer:
        Really? I didn´t write lies about Tom Hardy, you know that. Those stories are printed in newspapers , magazines and everywhere. Worse, he admitted it.
        He was proud of that.

      • lilacflowers says:

        @Allegra, sorry, but I agree with Sixer on this. I’ve always objected to comparisons. There’s no need for it.

      • Sixer says:

        Allegra – I refer you back to my previous comment. Don’t do whataboutery. It’s petty and annoying and it doesn’t work. if you insist on it, please fun police someone else with it. I thank you.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        *whispers*

        I work from home too… nekkid. pfft.

      • Allegra says:

        @Sixer:
        I’m fan, but not blind. I can see his flaws, his strangles, his frustration, his eager and his constant desire to please, but also I see decent and thoughtful human being, who tries to do his best in every situation.

      • Allegra says:

        @lilacflowers:
        Sorry, I disagree with you. I know I am the minority here but I going to express my opinion.
        Sorry if you don´t liked it.

      • Allegra says:

        @Sixer:
        i’m petty and annoying? Really?
        Just because I called you out about your hypocrisy?
        I want to do this for a long time, but never did because I want to avoid to get in fight with another posters and because my english writing just terrible.
        But my indignation was stuck in my throat.

      • lilacflowers says:

        @Allegra, there was absolutely no reason to drag Tom Hardy into whatever. It does not build Tom Hiddleston or anyone else up when you tear down other actors. Now, please have some cake.

      • Sixer says:

        Allegra: nobody is asking you not to have an opinion on LEGS. Have whatever opinion you like. Just please stop fun policing me with whataboutery. That’s it. Please don’t make me ask you again. So that you don’t, I will indulge you this one time. After that, I really will get cross. My interest in The Bloke is precisely the same as my interest in LEGS; a) is he bangable? b) is he any good at acting? c) does he say anything I can laugh at and deploy my ball gag for? Simples. Now that’s out of the way, please desist.

        PS: it suddenly occurs to me that you may not understand whataboutery. Definition here: http://www.macmillandictionary.com/dictionary/british/whataboutery.

        Nutty: pfft. I can’t do that: I’d frighten Old Dog and Young Cat. They are sensitive. Ooh! I have a TV show for you. The only thing I’ve watched all week. Flowers. You’ll find it on the Channel 4 catch up website. Dark comedy about depression. Truly original and bonus Olivia Colman. First episode the worst, so bear with it.

      • Allegra says:

        @lilacflowers:
        You know me, I never went to Tom hardy’s thread to say anything bad about him.
        I’m a dog´s person, so I quite like the love he shows for these lovely creatures.
        The true is I read the threads about most of people here and never said a word.
        Not even about the kardashians.
        But these things went to far. Some people don´t post here anymore and I almost give up because of the amount of vitrol. It make me feel dirty and angry.

      • icerose says:

        Sixer I love the right wing papers.They try so hard to twist everything ,The telegraph recently headlined with anti Corbet numbers stats making it look like they were due to the present anti semitism raucous but when you read it they were figures from 10 years ago or something similar.

      • Lindy79 says:

        Well…this was unexpected

      • Sixer says:

        icerose – the state of British politics is truly disgusting at the moment. You have the right wing papers, a dissatisfied rump of the Labour Party and the Prime Minister himself exploiting anti-Semitism for party political advantage. You have the Conservative Party running an openly Islamophobic campaign for London Mayor. Calling each other names rather than discuss the issues. It’s filth all round and none of them actually care (except perhaps Corbyn himself who can barely make himself heard) a whit for anti-racism of any kind. I’m just about at the end of my tether with all of it. They’re all making me sick to my stomach. Some of us actually DO care about these things and don’t want them used as cheap shots by politicians.

        We might disagree about poor old LEGS but I know we’re as one on this!

      • Allegra says:

        @Sixer:
        Before I posted my response to you, I went to look that word in a dictionary.
        So thank you for the link.
        Yes, my english is not good as yours and I know that I have practice more, but before I posted my reply to your comment , I took the time to read twice.

        I’m not policing you, so please stop playing the victim here. Like I said before, I read a most of threads here, I just choose not comment. I like Tom’s threads and Keanu´s too. That´s it.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Get back from my meeting and this thread exploded! My goodness.

        Allegra, Sixer’s comments are not worth getting upset about, especially when couched in great humor. Some of us enjoy Tom, love his LEGS (and GUNS and NOSE) but will take the piss out of him too. It’s neither here nor there, really. It’s fun chatter and means nothing in the grand scheme of things. Using Hardy as an example of douchebaggery doesn’t make Tom look like less of a famewhore when he attaches himself to MEGASTAR TAYTAY and gets publicity for it. Now, please enjoy some cake and post any links that the rest of us won’t see otherwise, pretty please? I rely on your great internet searching skills for that.

        Sixer, I saw something on Coleman’s dark comedy and had a mental note to check it out. I’m still enjoying Lens and the special-ness of seeing a police TV from a Slavic perspective. As with any foreign police/legal show, I’m scratching my head as to how realistic it is, when the rules & procedures are so different than what we’d see here in the US, i.e. in Spiral when they had no witness protection for the kid that filmed the BBQ in S2.

        Did you check out Kabul Kitchen yet?

      • Sixer says:

        Nuts (I like thinking of you as nuts, sorry!) – not started Kabul Kitchen yet. Hopefully next week. But yes, it’s the different perspectives I enjoy, too. Even if the plots are exaggerated as all dramatic plots are, I think you do get a flavour of the underlying cultural assumptions and attitudes by watching foreign drama and it’s interesting. Obviously, I know what underpins British dramas and US drama is so ubiquitous that I’m as au fait as I ever will be. So it’s much more fun to sit and consider how others see themselves and the world.

      • Allegra says:

        @NUTBALLS:

        I’m in this blog since long enough to know the diference between make fun, mild criticism and pure vitrol.
        And she always like that, since the day 01. To be fair, she was here before me.
        God, knows how hard I tried to avoid read most comments that comes from her, because her negativity is to much for me .

        I’m going to ask this again: did I lie what I said about Tom Hardy? You know I didn’t. She is mad because I showed that she has double standard.
        So, one can be a scumbag and get pass but another one always gets harsh criticism, even about things he has no control like the fact that his parents paid expensive schools. Any parents would do the same if they’d afford it . My brothers work their asses off so they can give my nephews the best. Should they apologize for that?

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Vitrol definition: harsh and angry words

        Allegra, if you’re reading vitrol then I think you’re reading too much into her statements. Especially the benign comments at the top of the thread that you first reacted to.

        Really, it’s best not to take Hiddles-inspired snark too seriously or personally. It’s just words and dust in the wind.

      • Allegra says:

        @NUTBALLS:
        I don´t want to fight with you, so please stay out this .
        Second, she doesn´t need you to defende her. She can do that for herself.
        Wait, she can´t because she knows that I’m right. Because it’s ok to her to speak badly about a person that is harmless without any proof , but if I say the true about someone that she likes, she calls me mean and petty. Right.
        Like I said before, english is not my first language, maybe second , third or fourth and I don´t need dictionary, I know what vitrol is.
        Last, that is a really low thing to do, when you can’t argue with someone , you just throw the “you don´t speak english very well, so please go find a dictionary”.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        I’ll defend any fellow snarker because it’s all in good fun and that’s why I’m here. I’m sorry you can’t see it that way, because I say similar things on Tom’s threads so criticism of one is criticism of all of us.

        But, I see we can’t see eye to eye about it, so I won’t comment anymore.

      • Allegra says:

        @NUTBALLS:
        And I’m sorry that you can’t see that is not ok to call someone cheater, famewhore and others things that people write here( without proof) and think is funny.
        It doesn’t make less hurtful just because he can’t see or read it.
        I can´t imagine his mother or someone from his family reading such hatefull things, when his parents raised him to be a decent person. I don´t wish this to my worst enemy.
        I’m not a grumpy person, I like fun too, but it seems that the word “fun” has different meanings for me and for you.

      • M.A.F. says:

        I learned a new word today! YAY!

    • Lilacflowers says:

      But you can still have cake!

      • Sixer says:

        Is there any lemon drizzle going? May I have two slices, since I didn’t require bribing to watch the video?

      • Solanacaea (Nighty) says:

        I want cake, lots of cake… I need something smooth, velvety, melting in my mouth… Had a terrible morning culminating with a student (not one of mine, but ..) trying to commit suicide at school… Need some distraction from the evils of society today…

      • lilacflowers says:

        Oh, Sixer, there is always a whole lemon drizzle specifically for you. We even drizzle the icing in your name so nobody else will dare touch it.

        Oh, Nighty, how sad and frightening. Have some chocolate ganache cake.

      • Sixer says:

        You can have my second slice, Nighty. I’m so sorry to hear that.

        I can always rely on you, my lovely Lilac.

      • lilacflowers says:

        I’m having lots of cake today. Good checkup with the doctor when I was expecting bad news. So, plenty of cake for everyone.

        And jiffy pop in honor of Kimye being Best Dressed Couple. Sadly, I think Anna needs her eyes checked.

      • Sixer says:

        Congratulations on the check up!

      • Lindy79 says:

        Congrats lilac xx

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Nighty, have all the cake, love. Sorry to hear of your terrible day.

        Lilac, congrats on the good news. Enjoy an extra big slice for me since I’m going sugar & alcohol-free for awhile to fix my screwed up hormones.

        Sixer, Undercover: Now that Mrs. I-married-a-spy knows what’s up, it’s gotten better, dontcha think? All the guilty tears from Mr Spy and her righteous anger and their sweet spill-the-beans boy?

        Jury’s out on whether I’ll continue with S2 of 30 Degrees in Feb. It’s terribly depressing — esp Stroke Mom & kids storyline. I can’t help but love Glenn — even with all of his bigotry and rage.

      • Sixer says:

        Nuts – Mr Sixer and I just finished watching the most recent episode of Undercover. I know there are a gazillion moments of belief suspension and a few plot holes, but I’m still loving it. Also, it has the added bonus of totty for both Mr Sixer and me. Adrian Lester is such an understated sort of person that I remember vaguely that I like him but that’s about it. But then he comes on TV and I go gaga over him. It’s been particularly timely here because we’ve just had the final verdict on the police misdoings over the Hillsborough disaster this last week. It only took 27 years.

        I loved Glenn best too!

        If you ever want a bit of light relief a la Employable Me, check out Channel 4′s 24 Hours in A&E. It’s one of those medical reality things and I never watch those. But its USP is the interviews with the families of the injured people featured. It’s more about the nature of relationships between families and friends than it is about the medical stuff. It always makes me feel happy watching it. You know I have a low tolerance for schmaltz but somehow this one manages to be lovely without being sickly.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Thank you dear. For all the dark and depressing stuff that you recommend, I need a little happy, hopeful optimistic viewing to balance it out.

        ETA: I’ve been listening to a great audiobook called NeuroTribes on the history of autism which has been fascinating and hopeful. The author comes at it from a similar perspective as Frith and Baron-Cohen, that they should be valued for the unique gifts they bring to the workplace.

      • Sixer says:

        OOH! I just sent an email to beg a hard copy of that. (Free books: perk of the job). I’ll let you know if they send it. Ta. I think that diversifying workplaces in such ways will bring benefits to any company. Corporate treadmills might be day-to-day efficient but they are not innovative. Bosses should think on that. Recruitment via tick box = entropy.

        Also, I forgot! S3 of Peaky Blinders begins tomorrow. I’ll have the alien beauty of Cillian Murphy for SIX WHOLE WEEKS.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Oh, I hope you get it. I love history and when I read about Hans Asperger and his progressive views that were asserted within the context of rising Naziism, it made me get all weepy. The struggles of families he writes about whose kids have more pronounced traits of autism makes me look differently on my own situation. I’ve got it good in comparison and I needed to see that for my own attitude adjustment.

        And it all started with Employable Me. That show gave me hope and the courage to read up more about autism, which I didn’t want to delve into until now. It felt too insurmountable. So thank you, my snarky CB friend!

      • Annetommy says:

        Now that things have calmed down a little (phew that was tense) I wanted to say how much I agreed with you Sixer in your take on British politics. Immensely depressing. Various UK elections tomorrow. And “up here in Scotland”, as the London-fixated media usually describe it, the leaders of all the major political parties – SNP, Labour, Tory and I think Green – are women. It doesn’t mean that every debate is polite but there’s certainly less “my plonker is bigger than yours” rubbish. And Tom and Taylor look lovely together but I won’t hold my breath that there’s a romance. Though I find her current boyfriend – who for some reason has adopted the boring nom de plume, or nom de turntable, Calvin Harris – quite potato- faced.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Plonker is my new favorite Britishism!

      • Cranberry says:

        Mine is potato-faced.

        Nutty, how did you get your plonker italicized?

        (*like a 12yr old. hehehe)

      • Sixer says:

        Annetommy – I am honestly ashamed of the state of Westminster at the moment. It’s not good.

        Nuts – plonker was originally as Annetommy used it: a non-sweary slang word for penis. You can say “he was pulling your plonker” instead of “he was pulling your leg” or “he was winding you up”. Then a sitcom character used it as a synonym for twit/inept person and it made its way into common parlance in that second sense. It’s an affectionate insult in the true British tradition. Next time I say something ridiculous on here, call me “You plonker, Rodney” – there isn’t a Brit alive who won’t know what you mean!

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Sixer, duly noted. I will be using it, knowing you!

    • Becky says:

      It was pointed out in the comments in the last thread that Tom just raised his profile by hanging with Swifty, he knew exactly what he was doing.

      • Sixer says:

        Of course he did! It just adds to the terrible dancing and makes it funnier, doesn’t it? Win win for me, cos I do enjoy laying into Tommy the Thirsty but it’s so much better if I can laugh at the same time.

      • Cranberry says:

        And how dare he dance with the ultra famous at a loud gala packed with a bunch of unfamiliar people. Was he just supposed to stay in the Brit corner. Sure he knows how high profile Swifty is. Tom casts a wide net. So what. He’s still open and sincere about all of it and just puts himself out there. TBH, even if Swifty wasn’t as famous, I still think he’d throw down on the dance floor with someone 10 yrs younger. It’s not like this is the first time he’s been a dancing spectacle. Go Tom, drink up. It’s your sandbox. Play any way you can.

      • Sixer says:

        Oh no, Cranberry. No staying in the Brit corner. No fun to be had with that. The kindly among us can coo over the cuteness of LEGS. The obnoxious among us (three guesses who that is) can laugh like drains at him. Win win, like I say! Everyone’s happy.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        LEGS should not be put in the corner. I like to laugh.

        I bet there’s a few lurking out there. Give ‘em time, they’ll come after you when you dare to laugh at their man. I won’t defend you next time.

        Not that you asked.

        (I take that back. I might, just because I am a staunch defender of free speech, esp when entertainment is at stake.)

      • Sarah01 says:

        Allegra, I understand where your coming from, your opinion matters just as much as anyone. There is a lot of snark / silliness / bandwagonning that happens here just take it in jest or sometimes with a massive grain of salt.
        I like some of the convos on this site, some are just petty and very few, rarely actually give me pause for thought.
        It’s ok not be popular, it’s ok to say what you think, it’s ok not to have good English and it’s okay to not say what everyone is saying.
        I thought what you said was fine as comparisons are made all the time.

      • Bay says:

        Oh no! Tom has been pictured with Nicole Kidman!! Guess that, by local standards, his whoredom has been risen to Babylon proportions, now…

      • Dara says:

        @Allegra – I’m going to echo Sarah01′s comments here rather than wade into that hot mess further upthread. I hope you are still around to read this, and the bullying chase you away. I was disturbed by how you were responded to – no one should ever be mocked, scolded or belittled for how they express a contrary opinion. You were accused of trying to police others, but somehow none of them realized they were themselves trying to police you by telling you all the ways you weren’t allowed to state your opinion or that you shouldn’t be offended and it was all just good fun. I’m glad you stuck up for yourself, I’m not sure I would have had the guts.

      • Allegra says:

        @Sarah01 and @Dara:
        Thank you !
        Your kind words + a short video with Celine Dion and another one with Tom on Snapchat made my soul a little lighter. Means a lot to me!

        @Dara:
        Don´t worry, I´m fine.
        I had some bad times yesterday, but i don´t regret a single word that I wrote here. My main concern was to explain my point of view , to defende myself and not lower the level of conversation. I hope that I achieved my goal.
        I going to take a time off, not sure if I will come back. I realize that I have so little in common with most of regular posters.
        One last thing, I know when times came, you will find the strength to overcome any obstacle. Just believe in yourself. Good luck!

      *screamed while brandishing an open bottle of Dom Perignon and preparing to smash red velvet cake on Thomas for the purpose of licking it off while he earnestly discusses education in war torn countries with Parliament people and the BBC.

      **It seems Thomas has received a promotion from “Supporter” to “Ambassador” from UNICEF

    • Bay says:

      Yeah, Tom going up to an event full of celebs, and ends up dancing with a… celeb!! Oh, the obvious thirst, there. The fact that Tom doesn’t recoil in to a monastery in silent contemplation, is a testament he is basically an attention whore. Or, better yet, quit acting altogether, already! (it ALWAYS comes down to that, doesn’t it?…)

      Funny thing: Most people I know, couldn’t tell Taylor Swift apart from random blond on the street number 234, while most at least know Tom from the Avengers. So, lol, “megastar”. Good thing he didn’t stand too close to Beyoncé, otherwise, the comentariat around here would have demanded his head on a pike.

  11. Cricket says:

    maybe they were talking about the upcoming Bond film.. he as 007 and she as the song writer/song for said movie? LOL! could you imagine….Tay does want that Oscar and it worked for Adele

  12. Meee4 says:

    Ugh. I just can’t believe how 2 mins of silly dancing has been overly dissected. They danced at a Party. Isn’t that what people do? If not I’ve been very mistaken every DJ’d party I’ve been to.

  14. Madly says:

    I don’t know if the word dancing can be applied to what Taylor is doing. More like having some kind of fit while standing.

    And talk about grasping at gossip.

  15. Norman Bates's Mother says:

    I cringed right away after reading the title, but now after watching the 2nd video, the second hand embarrassment is fighting with my need to laugh. Not everyone has to be a great dancer and there’s nothing wrong with a person who can’t but still enjoys to dance, but why does she have to behave like that while doing so? Those pseudo-sexy poses, those gestures and open mouth… It was like watching an impersonator of a budget Beyonce impersonator trying to seduce a budget Fred Astair. But still – they had fun, so good for them.

    I don’t think there’s any deeper meaning behind that. Two people can dance together without any subtexts.

  16. Jess says:

    She is still with Calvin Harris, and I actually like that she is comfortable enough to dance with other people. It shows grow in a relationship, and maturity. Swifty in a mature relationship sounds strange tbh, but I do think she’s finally in one

  17. Lex says:

    It’s not that Taylor likes boys, she just likes celebrities. They both like the attention, so it’s not surprising.

    • Jayna says:

      It’s a party consisting of celebrities. They danced at a party and were having a good time. Shoot them.

      • Lex says:

        I’m not mad at them? Taylor likes to collect celebrities as friends and she always dances at award shows, so this isn’t news. You can’t handle me saying that?

      No. I pointed that out yesterday. And it was one of her friends who was doing the filming.

        I am not crazy then, it was mentioned several times in that thread. I can only imagine all the songs that will come out of this brief moment.

  19. lowercaselois says:

    Both of them dancing reminds me of Elaine when she was danced at a company party from Seinfeld..https://youtu.be/DY_DF2Af3LM

  20. NUTBALLS says:

    She’s also roughly the same age as that last young lady he was romantically linked to. Maybe he’s in a phase??

    It’s a well known fan factoid that LEGS does like to dance — what he refers to as organized flailing.

    I can’t help but be delighted at all the monikers that I don’t recognize. It’s a colliding of the CB worlds!

    As I mentioned yesterday, it was shrewd to get himself column inchnes with one of the Big Fish at the Met. It’s the Remora Tactic. With TayTay’s 76 M twitter followers to his 2 M, he just got introduced to a sh!t ton of potential new fans. Well done, TommyAnnE. He’s playing the game right.

  22. Miss M says:

    Honest question: Does anyone think Tay is sexy? I don’t… But, boy, she tried hard to look sexy dancing with him (an older guy)…And he looks silly. But it’s Hiddleston and we already expect facepalm situations coming from him. *Yawn*

    • CornyBlue says:

      She tries to be and does not succeed. She wears sexy clothing and dances sexily but becaause she has such a lean and long figure it does not look good. I really do not get people who say she is a better inspiration for young girls cos she does not dress sexily when she clearly does

      • teacakes says:

        @CornyBlue – I really don’t think her sex appeal (or rather, the lack thereof) has anything to do with her body shape.

        I mean, so many fashion models are super long and lean and skinny like Taylor but still look sexy – Daria Werbowy is a classic example. Even the Birkin-Gainsbourgh-Doillon women (famously flat-chested and very thin) have more sex appeal in their front teeth than Taylor has ever had in any of her wannabe showgirl outfits.

      • Susan says:

        It’s a funny phenomenon but in clothing, how you’re built defines how ‘sexy’ an outfit is. My BFF from college was one of those string bean Taylor built types. She would buy the SKIMPIEST stuff at Wet Seal (yup, dating myself aren’t I?) and look like….I don’t know, a classy dance girl or a Rockette. I meanwhile, with my larger than average breasts and hips (and pre kids wasp waist lol😽) could make Talbots dresses look slutty.

      • Miss M says:

        @Susan: For me, being sexy is not about the clothes per se (although many women wear tight clothes with cleavages aiming for sexy). In my opinion, someone who is sexy is someone who oozes sensuality in a natural way. For instance, JLo and Angelina Jolie are sexy (in my opinion).She doesn’t it. Look at the faces she makes, come on! Ridiculously funny…

      • Cranberry says:

        @teacakes

        Right! She actually has a great figure. Her legs are very sexy. Gotta give that to her, but there is just something about her overall that reads prepubescent, non-sexual girl. Aside from the obvious, I really don’t understand how Calvin Harris, 32, who has access to all sorts of beautiful, sexy women, sees in her.

    • Mustang7 says:

      Most straight men find Taylor very sexy, yes.

  23. lilacflowers says:

    Tom is safely back in London.

    • twilly says:

      About time. Though, I think he should start dating some 30ish gals. He seemed so grown up on most of this last tour and it was really nice to see ……until the Met Gala!

      • Cranberry says:

        The only reason I want him to start dating 30ish gals is so that he can find somebody to be serious with and start a family some day soon. Not because I think people are supposed to be married w kids, but because I think he’s wonderful with children and it’s wonderful to see someone with so much joy share it so graciously the way he does.

        What was he supposed to do at the MG, sit in a corner and drink tea?

      • lilacflowers says:

        Start? JArthy is in her late 30s now. As is Gwen Christie.

      • Cranberry says:

        Ok, date more 30ish gals then.

        Funny how Debicki is younger than both Olsen and Swifty by 10 months to a year. Yet she seems older, like 28 or 29, cause she’s so poised, confident and mature compared to them. Don’t know much about her personality, but on the surface she seems a lovely match for him even though she won’t be 26 ’til August. Maybe she’s a leo.

  24. CornyBlue says:

    Why would yall as Tom Hiddleston fans want him associating with her ? Would that not lessen his serious actor cred ?

    • lilacflowers says:

      I don’t care one way or another and to me, dancing with someone at a party means nothing more than you danced with someone at a party but involvement with Taylor Swift did not diminish Jake Gyllenhaal’s credibility as a serious actor.

      • teacakes says:

        It did turn him into a bit of a tabloid joke around that time, though – that was a position he’d never been in before, and Prince of Persia flopping didn’t help. It took till about 2014 for people to really remember (again) that Jake was actually a good actor and not just the subject of blind item songs.

        And as a Hiddles fan, I certainly want him nowhere near that ridiculous ‘squad’ or any of Taylor’s batshit fanbase, even his own insane fanbase won’t survive an onslaught of that.

    • Cranberry says:

      I’m a Hiddles fan, and I don’t want him associated with her anymore than this which I think is well enough sense their both uncontrollable dancing hoes.

    • KTE says:

      Hmm, it’s such a funny thing to ask, ‘cos if playing a guy who wears a horny helmet and gets Hulk-smashed doesn’t lessen his serious actor cred – and it doesn’t, in fact there’s a time-honoured tradition of serious actors playing ridiculous characters in blockbusters – then I don’t think anything can.

      You get serious actor cred by being a serious actor. It really doesn’t matter what else you do.

    • Allegra says:

      Some people said that Karlie Kloss posted it.

    • jammypants says:

      I had no idea it’s considered thirst to dance with a famous partner at an event that bans personal photos and selfies. I also had no idea it’s considered thirst that Tom has a magical third arm to film all this while flailing about and put it up on one of a starlet’s friends’ snapchats.

  26. TotallyBiased says:

    I’m confused. People keep mentioning her 76 million Twitter followers, but she hasn’t tweeted about this. Or a word about him. So how does that specifically introduce him to her huge lot of followers?

    • MexicanMonkey says:

      Don’t you know that Everything Tom does has to be for publicity? Regardless of the fact that they were introduced the night before at Anna Wintour’s house or that they might have been seated with or close to each other, and Tom would literally dance with one of those flailing balloon things if no one else was game.

      I give the man a lot of credit for his intelligence but I really really doubt he is that calculating. And look at him, does he look like he has anything on his mind other than dancing? In the second video he doesn’t even look like he know Taylor is there.

      And I think it was one of Taylor’s friends who first posted this in Snap-chat.

      • Becky says:

        I wish I could view things with much less cynicism but personally I doubt he was hanging out and dancing with Taylor for totally innocent reasons: google him today and this is the 1st thing that comes up.

        Much as I like the guy – and I do – I find his pr very obvious, though to be fair most of the time he’s pretty savvy.

      • spidey says:

        Becky perhaps it is so obvious because it isn’t actually always about PR. He can be allowed to enjoy himself.

      • Allegra says:

        If he wanted some PR , he could fake a relationship with Emma Watson years ago when she didn’t have a boyfriend.
        She has almost 22 twitter followers, they know each other well and they have the same PR (Luke).
        Taylor S. is not a good choice, first because she is dating, second most of her fans are to young to dig some of Tom´s movies and last she has to high profile.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        “it isn’t actually always about PR. He can be allowed to enjoy himself.”

        He can do both at the same time. ;-)

      • Becky says:

        Spidey, I didn’t say it was ALWAYS about pr (I can’t be bothered with bold, your emphasis not mine), and I did say “personally” as in my opinion, so I’m sorry it differs to yours there’s no need to exaggerate what I said.

        The Met Ball is a huge event, getting an invite is a big deal, tho probably less so in the last couple of years. People go to be seen, there are cameras everywhere. Tom is at the end of a long promotional campaign, The Night Manager is on AMC atm, he made sure he was photographed with his co-star, it was an opportunity to raise his profile. Then I’m sure he networked, let loose and had a good time, that’s also what happens at these events. He also happened to be seen having a good time with a very high profile artist, who has 76 million Twitter followers.

      • Cranberry says:

        @Becky
        Just because TS has 76m twitter follower and is ultra famous doesn’t mean he calculated this dancing with her. For one, they were both at the dinner Anna Wintor hosted the previous night so they probably met there first. But even if they hadn’t previously met, they’re both dance-aholics, and that’s very well documented. As MexicanMonkey pointed out, he’ll dance with anyone that will throw down, famous or not. 2+1=3 not 5.

      • Bay says:

        Seems like Tom can’t be caught crossing a street, without being accused of whoring out and trying to cash in the popularity of asphalted roads, or something.

      • spidey says:

        Give it time Bay

      • lilacflowers says:

        I’m going to point out again that, although there are photographers lining the entryway and the entrance for pictures and interviews, they are not allowed in the actual gala itself, except for some official photographers. Anna Wintour has banned picture taking/selfies/videos by the guests. So, no, once inside, one shouldn’t be expecting to have every moment recorded and made public. One of Swift’s friends filmed them dancing and put the pictures on Snapchat. And good luck to her dealing with Wintour for breaking the rules. Yes, he benefits from the news attention but it was HER people who did it and put it out there, getting her name in the news. And it is far more common for her to be in the news for her associations than he is. He’s off promoting UNICEF on another continent today, and probably not basking in “hey, I got myself all over the gossip pages for dancing with Taylor.” It’s a distraction.

      • jammypants says:

        Oh boy. First off, Tom doesn’t even like his own fans. He treads very carefully around his fans. The very idea he wants more hysteria is absolutely hilarious, especially “Tay Tay’s” cray cray fan base. Secondly, Tom has veered away from the crazy aspect of Twitter. To assume he wants to go back to that x76 million is over analyzing and just a reaching presumption.

    • jammypants says:

      reaching of course :P

    • Dara says:

      I think people are using that number as a indicator of how many fans she has vs. how many he has. I don’t usually buy into everything-is-PR, but it’s not the worst theory I’ve heard.

      Even if only a fraction of her millions of fans see the dancing video and the news articles, some will immediately ask “who is that old fart my beloved Taylor is dancing with?” and take to Google and various social media sites to find out. Most will probably go, “oh, he’s Loki” and move on with their day, maybe some will say, “oh, The Night Manager – my parents watch that show.”

      btw – I saw a very blurry IG photo from the Met Ball, and Tom and Brie Larson are chatting together in the background, so he didn’t spend all his time flailing around with Swifty.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        “I think people are using that number as a indicator of how many fans she has vs. how many he has.”

        Thank you, Dara. That was my point. She is a HUGE international superstar and he’s small potatoes in comparison. So any press that gets him mentioned with her — and there’s been a lot of press on mainstream and social media — is a publicity win for Tom.

        ETA: Was Brie caught smiling at the Gala? She look positively miserable in all of her red carpet photos.

      • Phoebe says:

        @Dara- actually, Taylor is standing behind Tom and Brie in that photo sooo…

        I have a feeling Tom felt like he was “in with the cool kids” that night so he kept following Taylor around? There’s a story on Us mag online that they went to the after party together and he helped her put those gladiator heels back on after she took them off- weird. It’s like she was Regina George and he was trying to make fetch happen.

        There are also pics of him leaving a different club at 3am alone, so I’m not speculating anything (she couldn’t even begin to hold a conversation with Tom), just a strange pairing, IMO

      • Dara says:

        Nutty, I haven’t seen any photos of Brie smiling at this event, including that IG one. I’m curious to see how she handles her Oscar win – she’s been in the industry a long time so is probably better prepared than most actresses her age, but I still imagine something like that can really f*ck with your head if not careful.

        @Phoebe, I missed Taylor in the photo – I’ll have to look again. The Us Magazine article also mentioned Sienna Miller being with them at the after-party. I bet a lot of the guests ducked out early or didn’t go to the after-parties, so those looking to have some fun gravitated to the others in the room they were acquainted with that wanted to cut loose a little too. Simple as that.

      • Cranberry says:

        @Phoebe, I think that US mag article said that the Boom Boom party was an official MG after-party, so there were a lot of celebs from the gala continuing with the drinking and dancing. At that point of the night, I don’t think anybody is having any meaningful conversations.

    • Becky says:

      One of her posse posted the vid, her fans will see it and now know who he is, if they didn’t before. She followed him on Twitter some time ago as well.

      @Spidey, of course, there’s also the fact that Wintour banned selfies/videos during the event but Taylor’s friend broke the rules and not only took video but put it out on social media. Of course, he planned all that with his PR people so all Tay’s fans will watch all the interviews he is doing today about education in South Sudan.

  27. Kitten says:

    The comments about whether Taylor is sexy or not are kind of exasperating at this point. She’s always been awkward and she doesn’t hide it. Who cares whether she’s sexy or not? Women don’t HAVE to be sexy. It’s not some sort of failure because she’s not sexy, guys.

    • PrincessMe says:

      Amen, Kitten.

    • teacakes says:

      Kitten, I agree with you but Swifty’s lack of sexiness wouldn’t raise any comment if it wasn’t for her TRYING really, really hard to be seen as sexy – her styling, stage outfits etc.

      If she just owned the awkward as well as her music videos try to portray she does, no one would say anything.

      • Kitten says:

        Except for her entire Apple TV ad campaign, in which she falls, lip syncs, and acts like the dork she is. I haven’t seen her videos but isn’t sexy the female pop star standard? ..look sexy like the video director is telling you to?

        I just don’t get what would make people happy…it’s almost like people are angry that she wears tight/showy clothes because “OMG she’s trying SOOO hard to be sexy”. She’s just dressing like every other female popstar. Hell, her sh*t is even considered tame compared to some of her peers. IRL life she’s probably like most of us- a combination of things. Just because she doesn’t exude sex doesn’t mean that she’s incapable of being sexy or doesn’t enjoy sex.
        Meh.

        I don’t mean to sound snappy towards you, it’s just something that kind of grates on me.

      • Miss M says:

        Kitten, speaking for myself… I am not angry about her. But she tries to be sexy and it shows it doesn’t come naturally. Either you are or are not…My opinion. I actually do not associate being sexy with enjoying sex. These are two separate things to me.

      • Kitten says:

        Fair enough, Miss M.
        Hello btw *waves* :)

      • Miss M says:

        Kitten: Hello *waves back* Where is everybody? I haven’t seen your “gang” (Kiddo, Mimif and Abbott) in a while… They are fun!
        I just answered Susan (upthread) who I think is sexy. Not Tay Tay…lol

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Miss M, you’ll find that mimif resurfaced on the Cruz thread.

      • Miss M says:

        @nutballs: Thank you! I avoided the thread, :)
        I apparently didn’t notice that Abbott commented in this thread earlier.

      • lilacflowers says:

        Mimif also has popped up on recent Game of Thrones/Kit Harrington/Croquembouche threads.

      • Pepper says:

        I’m not angry about her clothes. I don’t care if she’s sexy or not. But the point is she’s trying to be. Her latest tour she was very much going for sexy. She mostly wore a bra and tiny skirt and a leather catsuit, she did the standard crotch thrust dance moves, and had a whole bit where she grinds on a dozen oiled up half naked men…not a second of it was sexy, but it was unquestionably meant to be, and not in a remotely subtle way. Britney in her hey day was less obvious.

        If she chooses to go down that route, and at her level it is very much her choice, then people are going to judge how successful she is at it. And as it happens she’s woefully unsuccessful at it.

        Plus she just gives off a certain sexless vibe. Like Tom Cruise. Surely we’ve all met people who come off as sexless. Who knows what they’re like in their personal lives, but when you think of them you just can’t imagine them having sex. That’s not any kind of problem, unless what they’re trying to sell is the idea of them as a sexy, sexual person. And with 1989, Taylor started to try to sell that, and people reacted.

      • Cranberry says:

        Agree teacakes, Miss and Pepper. As I said above, I think she’s a pretty girl with great legs, but she just doesn’t come off as authentic. I guess that proves that ‘sexiness’ is something more than just looks. The same applies to her new Apple ads were she’s playing up her awkward and clumsiness. Maybe it’s because she’s a terrible actress, but she’s just comes off as fake there too.

    • SloaneY says:

      I’m with you.

    • Susan says:

      I think that SEXY is a state of mind. And 1000 percent subjective.
      kinda like those people we find attractive and we really don’t know why.
      Or those losers we slept with in college and now we wonder WTF.
      and that is what we call oversharing, my apologies. Lol.

      • spidey says:

        Hope your mother isn’t reading this Susan. :lol:

      • Kitten says:

        Oh my god this so much.
        It’s those intangibles that I find sexy, those things that are impossible to really articulate. Well, that and a good voice. I LOVE a good voice.

  28. icerose says:

    Who defines sexy anyway -lots of macho actors look like posers because they are selling the look at my sexy macho dancing -give me the sixties/seventies when flailing was all the rage and even those who studied dance let loose on the dance floor just for the pure enjoyment.
    Having said that there is nothing like the old Victorian dances with flirting as you pass or a good salsa.

  29. jammypants says:

    I’m not a fan of Taylor’s current look. That shade of blonde hardly is ever flattering on anyone. It might have looked ok if the eyebrows didn’t match. I always thought the contrast looks striking. This…just washes her whole face out.

  30. Sweet Old Time Favourite says:

    Why do people on here think that everything Tom does he’s attention seeking? ‘He’s thirsty’, ‘too earnest’.Whatever. It’s ironic that a guy who is filled with good intentions and positive vibes gets so much snark on here.He and Taylor are simply enjoying themselves at a party.I love that Tom doesn’t take himself seriously and is too cool for school.There are far more celebs that deserve a whole lotta snark more than this sweet man.He’s really a man to be respected and I very much do.

    • Kitten says:

      IKR? I don’t get it either but I don’t really follow him so…

      The few interviews of his that I’ve read made him seem like a funny, intelligent, thoughtful guy. So what if he wants to be liked? I’d take that quality over arrogant dbag who doesn’t care what anyone thinks of him.
      If try-hard is the worst thing people can say about him then he’s still winning IMO.

      • Sweet Old Time Favourite says:

        I guess you can’t please everyone.But I see nothing to complain about.Every time I see an interview or talk show with him on it, everyone around just comments on how much of a gentleman he is and how well he presents himself which is so true.He is comfortable with himself and and modest as well as confident. I’ve had enough of celebrities who think too highly of themselves,Tom’s a refreshing change

  31. Izzy says:

    Two People Who Enjoy Dancing Dance With Each Other At Big Party.

    Well, I never. Stop the presses.

    • spidey says:

      I must add that if we get this much fuss and derogatory comments about a 10 sec video of a guy being daft on the dance floor, thank goodness in the video from (apparently) gone 3 am the next morning of Tom coming out of a night club looking as impeccable as he did when he arrived at that gala, that there didn’t appear to be a woman in the photo.

      No doubt some will say he only went to the night club so someone can snap him and post up the pic on tumblr/twitter/instagram……………………..

      • Becky says:

        No doubt he went to the club to have a good time. And also to be seen.

        Look like he flew straight back to the UK afterwards.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        No woman in sight in any direction in that picture. But bow tie still in place

      • NUTBALLS says:

        But was the TIN still in place or did he go through all the mints????

      • Cranberry says:

        It was a can of Dapper Dan I tell you.

        And where is this pic or vid of him leaving the club? Was he crying because Taylor & squad ditched him to have pizza in animal onesies?

    • TotallyBiased says:

      It’s the “Well, I never” that inspires my love for this comment.

  32. stinky says:

    This looks like 100% non-fun to me.
    Dancing with inches of space next to a banquet table?
    This party used to be an exclusive & semi-serious event, no?
    And now we have Kylie Jenner VIP ?
    gross.

  33. Stadun says:

    The whole look is very “Pretty Woman” nostalgia. The cut of the dress is just a bit more covered (but essentially the same “cut” as the PW dress). Of course Taylor’s has ruffles. Instead of thigh high boots, she has knee high gladiator sandals. But the short blond hair (the wig Julia Roberts wears when she goes out for “work”). Taylor’s hair is wavy.
    But essentially her entire look is an updated version of Julia Robert’s hooker clothes in PW.

    • Dara says:

      You can blame the designer for that. When it comes to the Met Gala the celebrities are paired with a design house (assuming they don’t already have a fashion contract with one of them) and the designer has most of the say in what each celeb wears. If the celeb is big-time A-list, they may get a some design input, but they still mostly defer to the designer. Alicia Vikander probably had first-dibs since she’s a brand ambassador for LV, followed by Taylor. I think all of the LV dresses were a big miss, but I thought Taylor was by far the best of that particular bunch.

  34. Erica_V says:

    The only part of this I find curious is the statement about them going out to an after party together when Taylor IGed a pic of her an Haim The Band in animal onesies with pizza….

    So why did she say she went home but really went out?

    • Cranberry says:

      That was her own private party with her ‘squad’ back at her hotel AFTER the after-party at the Boom Boom where more dancing was had.

  35. Magnoliarose says:

    Looks like they had fun and got along. I don’t see why a man and a woman can’t just like each other without hooking up.

  36. Abby says:

    Those videos are so funny. I think nothing is going on. That’s just silliness.

  37. Camille says:

    I have serious second hand embarrassment after watching those videos. Yikes.

    And Taylor probably just loves her gay guy friends. (I’m sorry but TH pings my gay/bidar more than any other male actor in Hollywood. And no, I don’t think every man in HW is gay).

    • jammypants says:

      Why on earth does it matter what someone’s sexuality is? Does it diminish their character in some way? And none of us have a chance in hell with him (gay or not) anyway.

    • Cranberry says:

      He’s not gay, he’s British.

  38. spidey says:

    Just watched the Tom interview on BBC and talk about crassly done by the BBC. There he is talking about the work of Unicef and they just stop dead with that line and go onto The Night Manager and James Bond. I felt quite sorry for him. Time and place BBC, time and place.

    • Bay says:

      And that last try at a save, where Tom tries to stir the conversation away in to a more proper-to-context theme, namely, the White House Correspondents Dinner… “Come on! It’s Obama! You’re the BBC! Why don’t you care?! D:” might have been something that went through Tom’s head, at that time.

      • spidey says:

        Are we talking about the same interview Bay? I’m talking about the one he did in London today.

      • Bay says:

        @spidey Perhaps not.

        I was talking about the one labeled “Tom Hiddleston on BBC Worlds News”, while you’re probably talking about the one labeled “Tom Hiddleston Interview on BBC News – May 4, 2016″ (sorry, can’t post the links; they are being blocked).

        This second interview started off being pretty interesting, actually, but then it went in to promo mode, and, meh.

      • spidey says:

        WE were on the same one then, sorry my error. It started about unicef and then promo mode.

      • lilacflowers says:

        @Bay, I cut and pasted your “Tom Hiddleston on BBC World News” into YouTube’s search field and was able to watch it, thank you. That was a good interview until the interviewer decided to demonstrate his Bond obsession. I wonder if Tom will be attending the humanitarian summit.

      • spidey says:

        @ Bay. Now I have seen the youtube upload, the interview there is longer than the one I actually saw on tv. :?:

      • Bay says:

        @lilacflowers you’re welcome.

        @spidey they’re probably posting online the larger versions of interviews, I guess. Makes some sense. TV time is tighter.

    • lilacflowers says:

      I’m trying to find the full interview and all I can get is the bit about The Night Manager and Bond. Come on, BBC, I want to hear him talk about UNICEF. That’s why he is there, let me watch!

    • lilacflowers says:

      One of the interviews is over 11 minutes long, with the first half all about UNICEF.

  39. Timbuktu says:

    Ok, so the only thing that crossed my mind was how awkward a space for dancing that was, for a fancy celebrity party. When he twirls at one point, I got scared that his coattails would catch fire from candles on the table. I think part of the reason their dancing is so lame is because it’s so cramped. Was it not planned as a dancing kind of party? Is anyone else dancing?

  40. spidey says:

    Is this any help for those wanting to see High-Rise?

  41. Zaytabogota says:

    They both look fun to have around, who cares if they’re a bit silly and geeky, it’s cute and most people are relatively bad dancers anyway if you film them because we subconsciously compare them to the professional dancers we see in music videos. Watch any wedding video!!! People should be too busy having fun at a party to judge other peoples moves. I like them both and he’s hot.
