Star: Tom Hiddleston ‘feels like he’s become a laughingstock’ post-Tiddles


This is just some catnip (dragonflynip) for the true-blue Tom Hiddleston fans. I would imagine this weekend is going to be ALL ABOUT HIDDLES. Just kidding! I bet you $20 that the second Tom steps out at a pre-Emmy party – the annual pre-Emmy BAFTA LA tea party, perchance? – Taylor Swift will conveniently get pap’d in something clingy and awful. Either that or the Snake Emoji will begin to roll out a new boyfriend with an outing on Sunday evening. And we’ll get to see her Surprise Face™ because who would have guessed that she would get pap’d holding hands with Zac Efron? In any case, on the off-chance that Taylor lets Tom have Emmys Weekend all to himself, the Specter of the Snake Emoji will still haunt him everywhere. According to Star Magazine, Tom feels like he’s become a “laughingstock.”

Tom Hiddleston, who went along with all of Taylor’s publicity stunts and came to regret it, is taking the split hard, an insider tells Star.

“He feels like he’s become a laughingstock,” says the source. Her need for publicity led him to call off the relationship, although Taylor’s camp is saying the opposite. His good friends Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba are trying to cheer him up.

“They predicted it would be over in three months,” says the pal. “Now they’re telling him to start a Taylor Refugee Men’s Club with other guys who couldn’t last more than three months.”

Has Tommy become a laughingstock? Yes. He has. We laughed at him throughout the summer. We laughed when Tiddles awkwardly made out on some rocks in front of the paps. We laughed when Tom wore the “I Heart T.S.” shirt. We laughed when Kim Kardashian dropped the receipts and everyone was like “hahaha, poor Tom.” And we’re laughing now that he’s trying to shimmy out of the Tiddlesplit relatively intact. As for Hemsworth and Elba trying to cheer him up… I need photos of that. Please.

Now & Then. @chrishemsworth #thorragnarok #thor #loki

    Poor Tom. His attempt to date high profile blew up spectacularly in his face. Thanks for the fun this summer. As for Idris and Chris cheering him up…please. They are grown men. They’ve probably been teasing him non-stop.

    • Hannah says:

      It was official when RDJ teased him in Instagram.

    • SilverUnicorn says:

      Bwahahaha exactly, I agree with everything you said!!

    • Cranberry says:

      I’m sure they have given him a bit of crap like RDJ, but I would think all in fun. Idris has already defended Tom to the media, and Chris knows better than to come off like some bully bloke, lead actor especially next to sweet, likeable Tom. Besides, CHems can’t come down on any of his colleagues for dating obnoxious pop stars when his own brother is back with the other world wide, #1 obnoxious, “look-at-me”, star twit Miley.

      • graymatters says:

        Miley grew up and celebrated her independence by getting engaged and being crude, obnoxious, and fame-ho-ish. But she was honest about it, and it seems to have been a phase she’s outgrowing.

        Taylor is revealed to be a manipulative liar and this is seemingly part of her more permanent character. Not quite the same.

        But, yeah, I doubt if his friends are giving him much grief over this. He didn’t research her on Tumbler (or Celebitchy) and he got played. I think he’s much more sinned against than sinner.

      • Cranberry says:

        Relatively speaking Miley might be more honest than Taylor, and she might be finally growing out of her ultra, fame-ho, tongue wagging phase especially now that Liam is back in her life, but I still find her to be quite obnoxious to listen to. Not her singing but her speaking voice or rather the way she hollers at everything cause everyone’s gotta know when Miley’s in the house. Her voice and most things that come out of her mouth I still find particularly obnoxious like listening to a hyper active 14 yr.

    • DARKVADER says:


    • Francine says:

      Hahaha this was one cheesy relationship, I’ve lost all respect for tom when he went to a Selena Gomez concert & awkwardly danced like a fool, him & Taylor should have been called TomTayto, they’ve got all the charisma Of a potatoe

  2. HH says:

    When he says “feels like” does that mean he knows but has a hard time accepting facts? Is it that painful? Because if he has access to the internet it’s not a matter opinion. Like, he embarrassed him in such a huge, public way. That t-shirt? BRUH… He can bounce back for sure. Things blow over very quickly in the digital age. But as of right now… you played yourself.

    • Naya says:

      He just has a niggling suspicion….a hunch even. No way to be sure that the skits on late night or the endless memes or the articles in respected outlets saying he is a laughing stock are actually proof of laughing stock status. Now if only there was a way to be sure…..

      • sanders says:

        very funny Naya!

      • shelly* says:

        Lol NAYA

      • Sheila says:

        Naya, ha, ha, ha! Loved your comment! Perhaps when Tom was on the way to fix a cup of tea in his kitchen, dressed in some casual slacks showing of his pert derriere and a snug shirt that allows hints of his 6 pack to be seen, he felt the twinge? Perhaps 438 emails from friends with links to Nezoids, CB comments, etc. Or maybe RDJ sent him a bouquet of flowers with heart balloons and a friendly message to find his balls and exit this PR stunt?

      • Cranberry says:

        What’s Newzoids? Never heard of it. The only late night skits that matter are SNL. I did think Colbert did some cute stuff on Hiddleswift but nothing scathing. And what “endless articles in *respected outlets”? The Daily Fail ? They have endless articles mocking him, but I wouldn’t call them respected. The Guardian may have had a few, but they were always using him for the posh actor click bait bandwagon more than the Hiddleswift mania, and that was before and after Tiddlebang.
        I think HIddleswift was a bigger mockery in Britain and on gossip outlets than in US mainstream or on “respectable” outlets. I agree he still took a hit, but it will be hard to say if it will have made much of an impression either way in US mainstream. The real test is going to be Skull Island in 2017.

    • Miss Jupitero says:

      Newzoids may have tipped him off.

      • Sixer says:


      • EscapedConvent says:

        Hi, Miss Jupitero! Yes, Newzoids are hysterical.

        Oh, how we laughed….

      • bonzo says:

        You think that’s what finally cleared the fog of self-delusion, Miss Jup?? Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!

        Those Newzoids clips were THE BEST.

      • browniecakes says:

        I watched the Tiddles Newzoids clips again before the sun even came up this morning. It you have not seen Newzoids yet, you’re in for a treat. Those are out of England, right?

      • Sixer says:

        Yep. The show airs on our ITV network.

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        I wanted Tiddles to last through Christmas *just* for the Newzoids.

        Also the second Newzoid? Watch carefully because it goes by fast– when his Newzoid puppet shows his ass, you can see the Newzoid’s Hiddleconda dangling in the background.

    • Me again says:

      This. I wish people would stop with the “Poor Tom” crap. He knew what he was getting into and he has no one to blame but Tom.

  3. Astrid says:


  4. LaraK says:


    And I need a jacket now that it’s fall.

    What exactly did he think was going to happen? Honestly I still cannot believe that I heart TS tank top. He must have been high. Surely.

    • Clucky says:

      I love my husband and have been married to him for 17 years, however, if he ever decided it would be a good idea to wear a shirt like that, it’s over.

    • Becky says:

      There are/were Tom fans (and Swifty fans of course), who thought the romance was 100% real. After the July 4 party, there was a gossip segment on This Morning in the UK where HS was discussed and Philip Schofield said he’d spoken to a person who knows Tom very well, and who said he wouldn’t do the t-shirt thing, “it wasn’t in his nature”.

      My take was that it was like a work project, so someone asked him to do it.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      Thank you. As if those antics would be taken seriously and make way for new-found respect?

      But, I am wondering, now that we’re hearing about the impending culmination of TSwift and Effron, if Tiddles was actually and entirely a bearding situation that went terribly terribly wrong.

    • Cranberry says:

      Tom is fun loving and not egotistic at all and is always game for fun which is why he probably saw it as a bit of lighthearted foolishness. As I heard it, it was one of many T-shirts provided for her squad which is why it’s too small for him. He took off his own shirt to keep it clean cause he got a temporary tattoo, and someone, maybe Taylor, got him to put on the tank top as a silly gesture.

  5. Michelina says:

    He’s a total laughingstock now. No one held a gun to his head and forced him to be as ridiculous and sappy as he possibly could with the permanently 13-year-old Taylor Swift. That was a choice he made all on his own.

    I don’t really know if I believe that he used her to become more famous, but I certainly don’t believe that she is in any way attached to any James Bond movies or that him dating her would somehow help him become James Bond.

  6. Jenn4037 says:

    Post-Hiddles?! No dear, we’ve been laughing since the Rhode Island Rocks…

    • JenniferJustice says:


    • Jonnika A Bennett says:

      no it won’t get him jobs. this “romance” caused him more trouble than it was worth. I liked him before he started dating that tart, he looked foolish and ridiculous running around with her. he looked like her babysitter. I feel no sympathy for him at all, that’s what he gets for dating a child.

  7. Nancy says:

    I barely know who this guy is. I felt bad that he got caught in the snake pit. I laughed at her because she had another false relationship and everyone knew it. He will go on, find a real relationship and all will be forgotten. She will go on and have many many more relationships and be remembered for that as opposed to her music. IMO of course.

  8. Sixer says:

    I, for one, will be forever grateful for The Great Tiddlesbanging of 2016. Never, ever, have I had such fun on the internet.

    LEGS will get over the shame sooner or later. And I will always have the throat-baring, the t-shirt and the PAPER KNICKERS.

    • RedOnTheHead says:

      I thought the PAPER KNICKERS was his crowning achievement of the summer. I enjoyed it far more than the rest of the charade. That and the fact that l love saying the word knickers.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      And pastry swans with fudge!

    • Sheila says:

      Ah Sixer, I totally agree! Tiddleswift was over too soon but that picture of Tom sliding down the TayAmerica slide with that sunburned forehead, thats forever! Plus the staged picture on the porch canoodling while Taylor was on his lap (with the best side eye kill me now you have to be kidding me—expression from Ryan Reynolds)…we deserved a Build a Bear engagement party, epic English castle wedding with the entire squad as matching bridesmaids, with Tiddletot offspring dressed in gingham dragon fly jumpers! I demand a reconciliation. I just can’t do election coverage at all.

    • Sixer says:

      And the swans! How could I miss out the swans?!

    • Miss Jupitero says:

      I wanted it to last longer if only to have MOAR newzoids.

    • bonzo says:

      Sheila, you forgot the vice grip that he had on that wine glass while posing for the porch picture. I wouldn’t be surprised if Tommy was hitting the booze harder than usual to deal with his slow-moving trainwreck of a fling.

      It will be awhile before we forgot how he showed us his ass in the Great Famewhoring Tiddleshagging of 2016. It will be held up as an example of PR gone horribly off the rails.

      Has he been spotted at the airport yet or is he sneaking in to LA à la post-Snapchats??

      • browniecakes says:

        Baby has to get used to flying commercial again.

      • Sheila says:

        Bongo, indeed! Holding onto that wine glass like it was the only thing keeping him tethered to “reality.” The PR around this relationship and it’s demise was epic. It will be referenced for future contracts, that’s for sure!

    • Alicat1822 says:

      It has been beautiful. Just good times to be had by all of us who love a bit of prurient, pearl-clutching and inherently foolish gossip. This site and all of the genius commenting and speculation…oh what a time it was!

    • bonzo says:

      I think the PAPER KNICKERS were funnier than the tank top, which I assumed were a dare or the result of a lost bet.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      I will miss the songs we made up anticipating post-Tiddles and the possible T-shirt slogans. We took them for granted folks. Those were the days my friends. Those were the days.

      • Sheila says:

        Jennifer, seriously I’m in morning over the demise of Tiddleswift. The comments here were much needed sweet relief from current job stress and the insanity that is our election coverage! We were promised more! Someone get the contract renegotiated stat! Lilac flowers I need a strong drink, be a love and send Colin over…work is ugly and it’s dragging by.

      • Alicat1822 says:

        Aww man @ JenniferJustice….
        I think I just started writing a song. To the tune of “Summer of 69′”. Here goes-

        I got my first real six-string
        Daddy bought it from his Wall Street friend
        After he gave it to me
        Had to put it on display right next to my canopy bed

        One fateful day my computer was freezing’
        Kept getting that spinning wheel of death
        The computer guy, he came and he fixed it
        Saw my guitar and you all know what came next

        Oh, when I look back now
        The voices, they told me I’d be a special snowflake
        I knew it all along
        These day I’m raking in the bank
        By exploiting my personal life
        And writing ’bout the boys that I date

        *This is fun…I thing I might finish it.

  9. Harla Jodet says:

    Oh honey, you were a laughingstock “while” you were dating her. I’m not a superfan of Tom’s but I did find him rather sexy, in a “I’d like to naughty up this school boy” kind of way, but since seeing him kissing Taylor, I just can’t. I still cringe a bit inside just thinking about it.

    • hoopjumper says:

      Co-sign to the “laughingstock” *while* you were dating her” and the total loss of sex appeal. Nailed it.

      • bonzo says:

        Yeah, I can’t retain my ladyboner for any man that chooses to date someone I’ve come to distain as much as Taylor. Water seeks its own level. Ugh.

        He choose to go very public with her after spending nearly two weeks living with her… I mean, how shallow is he to think she’s some sort of prize?? Notice how no one congratulated him… She was the one getting kudos for snagging him.

        I took everything he said about fame, celebrity, authenticity etc with a grain of salt. Now that those statements go against his verifiable actions, I outright dismiss them as lies to prop up a false image of himself. What you DO is more real than what you say, Tommy boy.

        What he needs now is a solid, critically acclaimed role to get some of his respect back. The Monkey Movie won’t do it for him. It’s time for Luke to announce a new theatre role for him to distract for the Tiddlesplit press that continues to make him look like silly tabloid fodder.

  10. Purple Nymphe says:

    So damned thurstay, ugh! Can’t stand his stretched smiling face no mo (said in Birdman tone). I never really got into him, found him thurstay long before hideous strolls on the beach, but that T-shirt, that “I love T.S t-shirt”, that was the end for me. No self respect, no dignity, none whatsoever. Can you imagine someone like David Gandy or Benedict Cumberbatch acting this idiotic? Me neither.

    I hope the world never forgets.

    Kaiser please do a thirsty Thursday or #thurstay post where you drop the thirstiest of photos for our pure evil entertainment. No one would trump Hiddleston’s beach/bitch moment in that T-shirt.

  11. Mar says:

    It’s ok because he’s talented enough to get past this.

    • mee says:

      Is he really talented? I admittedly haven’t seen him in anything other than short clips of movie so I shouldn’t speak. But I will anyway.;) I’ve found his acting as contrived as his whole persona, including his big Romeo act of 2016.

      • Me again says:

        I thought I was the only one who felt this way. I don’t get the hoopla over this guy. He’s an ok actor but I find him to be a bit of a phony.

  12. paranormalgirl says:

    I need coffee. I read “the Specter of the Snake Emoji” as “the Sphincter of the Snake Emoji.”

  13. Chef Grace says:

    We came, we cringed, we laughed, we laughed some more..oh hell, admit it, we laughed a lot..
    But Hiddles got his moneys worth, his name is out there, his oh so posh image a bit banged up and snake bitten. This will pass out of sight soon enough..he has THE EMMY! awards to invade and conquer.
    However, that I heart TS vest is forever burned into the internet retina for all time! LOL

  14. CidySmiley says:

    Honestly, he did become a giant laughing stock. But just because her (and his) publicity was so transparent. We could all see right through it, they didn’t play us well enough. And I think Tom thought he would get a more positive response when in reality everyone around the world was like “wtf” and still are.

  15. Lilacflowers says:

    Taylor will be caught in a hotel elevator with the secret, scandalous love of her life … Kanye West, thus simultaneously upstaging Tom’s Emmy fun, dominating all gossip news for the next year, AND knocking Kim over so hard that her fake butt will dent.

  16. Fonzieface says:

    Tiddles got me through a long, hard summer and for that I can only thank the man.

    • Ellyn says:

      And the Tiddleswift competition will be complete if Tom sticks the landing with his award presentation. No need to be a snake charmer anymore!
      We had joy, we had fun, we had Tiddles in the sun…

  17. Londongal says:

    ‘Feels’? Bless Legs, he is, sadly. I agree with everyone who thinks Legs has been ribbed mercilessly by Chem and Bigdris and that if anything, I imagine he got a quiet no eye contact little 5 second chat from Chem with ‘Mate, get a fucking grip’ and that was about it!

  18. Bros says:

    ugh can we please not have anymore of his Bert puppet face? I’m so over this overexposed ninny. no more stories about it! if he feels overexposed, stop leaking your side to the damn press and just be quiet til we all forget about this.

  19. Tessa says:

    He’s not wrong. He was an endless source of amusement through the summer for me and my friends 😂

  20. Mari says:

    I mean, really though, what did he think was going to happen? Surely he looked at her track record when they started dating, or at least heard about it. That in itself should give a moment of pause at the very least. I will go ahead and say his “relationship”, or whatever you want to call it with TayTay, forever tarnished my view of him. Before this, I saw him as a serious and respectful professional actor. Now I see him as a man-boy who was so caught up in trying to relive his younger years (or maybe he never lived them) that he agreed to go along with some extremely calculated PR moves. I don’t get it. At all.

    • seesittellsit says:

      @Mari – I’ll tell you what he thought would happen: no matter how awful it was to go through, it would stick him with the label “Taylor Swift’s Ex” instead of “Think this bloke might play for other team”. And if that’s all he wanted out of it, it was a success – ‘cept for the DL crowd. You can’t fool them.

      • AlmostThere says:

        You mean the Data Lounge crowd? There’s always going to be some new ones over there thinking he’s gay, but DL went through a whole Hiddles speculation thing for a while, but nobody ever came up with any receipts or even some credible, anon insider to support that claim. In fact quite the opposite. There were members that had only heard from drama colleagues that he was straight. There was a DL member that had a big crush on him at RADA but was also fairly certain he was straight. Sometime in 2013 DL started deleting threads cause too many non gay Hiddlestoners were invading their site and endlessly chatting about someone that was generally considered Not gay by the DL community.

      • Annetommy says:

        The DL crowd think EVERYONE is gay. Doesn’t mean they aren’t of course, but if you go for the “everyone is gay” approach, you are bound to be right sometimes.

    • AlmostThere says:

      I don’t think he was trying to re-live his youth by dating Taylor. The arrangement seems to have been mostly for professional and some personal purposes. For his part, he was advised to date someone high profile to gain more name recognition in US. They knew TNM would probably get at least one Emmy nom, and he has a big budget, non-Loki, film coming out in 2017. And as some have pointed out, his leading role indie films haven’t done well at BO and had limited distribution in theaters.

      For her part what makes most sense to me is that Calvin got wind through his friends and connections of Kanye’s video and the impending scandal it would be. It would have been more important professionally to distance himself from her asap and not risk getting muddled up in another pop-star v rapper media battle. Therefore with Calvin abandoning her at a time of for coming public scrutiny, her team set out to find her a new beau to “keep up appearances” when the bomb dropped.

  21. FW says:

    “He feels like he’s become a laughingstock,” says the source. Her need for publicity led him to call off the relationship”

    Thanks for being THE laughingstock of the summer.

    as to the reason to call off the (PR) relationship, HIS need for publicity, agreeing with all TayTay playbook but not receiving expected reward was the reason. when cost-benefit analysis did not add up, he called it off.

    BTW, enjoy your Emmy night;)

  22. Dippit says:

    /holding post as he’s chosen to have this realisation when I’m up to my elbows in cake baking.

    For now – well derrrr Tom, never surely, do you really think [so]?! 😆

  23. Betsy says:

    He is a complete laughingstock and deserves it.

  24. Spidey says:

    Best thing he can do this weekend his have a good public laugh at himself and then it will hopefully draw the sting a little.

    But (need a drink here lilacflowers!) to say he will never recover from it is a tad hyperbolic.

  25. MI6 says:

    BECOME a laughingstock?? He’s BEEN a laughingstock since June 15th.
    I have faith he will recover. He should use his self-deprecating sense of humor and get papped wearing a T shirt saying “This is what Taylor Swift’s new song looks like” and get it over with.
    That would be EPIC.

    • bonzo says:

      Brilliant, MI6. Can you send that shirt to Luke, pronto???

      It would do him good to laugh at himself in whatever interview he addresses the Great Tiddleshagging. You know the journos are going to want to hear what he “learned” from it all. A self-deprecating joke or remark would do him wonders.

    • Dara says:

      Self-deprecating yes, but he’d better be careful that no shade falls on Precious Angel Taylor if he goes that route. If he even implies that he didn’t enjoy every minute of the Summer of Love, Taylor Swift isn’t the very embodiment of the Perfect Woman, and it is not All His Fault the romance fizzled, you know she and her flying monkeys will come after him with white-hot fury. After they’re done, there won’t be anything left of him except the shredded remnants of his favorite gray suede boots.

      • MI6 says:

        I think that horse has already left the barn, Dara.
        #IhaveadoublefirstfromCambridge ;)

        Bonzo, I’ll ship it right to the Microsoft Theater c/o one Luke Windsor (who will hopefully be there to guide his charge through the morass of idiotic questions he’s likely to face).
        Gotta keep Eager Puppy Tommy on a short leash this weekend.

  26. shelly* says:

    He gave me fun all summer long.

    How anyone never realised he was thirsty before all this though is a mystery to me, he’s an actor, they’re all thirsty it comes with the territory otherwise why would you get into that profession ?

    In that respect he is no better or worse than any other actor.

    I’m not sure why i’ve enjoyed his embarrassing f*ckwittery so much, he seems a decent bloke, and hasn’t hurt anyone. I suppose its just, TAYLOR SWIFT wtf were you thinking TH !!!!


  27. browniecakes says:

    Tom either has no instincts or he is just that big a fame whore.. He needs to stop going along with other people’s ideas of what he should be doing (e.g., Taylor and the paps with his family, underpants photos).

    • LambOfLoom says:

      Only, the W magazine “underpants photos” was a shoot involving other actors, such as Sarah Paulson, Liev Schreiber or Thandie Newton. Some of which were pretty revealing too.

      Are they to be smacked upside the head, as well?

      • Sixer says:

        If they carried off the paper knickers look better than LEGS, then no smacking upside of heads. If they carried it off as deplorably as he did, let the smacking commence.

      • anon33 says:

        Agree with Sixer that the point is he looked ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE while doing it. It wasn’t “hot.”. It was like stumbling upon my grandpa in his skivvies by accident when I spent the night at his house *shudder*
        100% not sexy.

      • LambOfLoom says:

        I still suspect the generalized horror over the underwear photos would not be so strong if a certain Tay-tay person wasn’t involved…. But it’s just a hunch I have.

      • Sixer says:

        I don’t think the word is horror. I think it is hilarity.

        That’s why the paper knickers feed into the laughing stock thing. Just unfortunate that he did a laughable photo shoot – and it WAS laughable – right at the exact same time he was doing other laughable things with Taylor.

      • browniecakes says:

        No. The underwear photos are a stand alone Taylor-less horror. Shot before the Met Gala. As Dlisted put it: these pictures are where awkward and uncomfortable meet. In some of the pictures, Tom looks like he’s standing in the middle of an examining room in his doctor’s office. In other pictures, he looks like he’s doing the “before” pose for an ad for a new erectile dysfunction med. And he also looks like somebody’s hot dad who is reluctantly posing for pictures after deciding that he’s going to try hooking to get his family out of debt.”

      • browniecakes says:

        Okay, maybe not HORROR. But it is certainly the other dumb thing he did this summer. And the pictures came out separately, before the magazine’s publication date and the rest of the actor’s photos. Paulson’s were classier and I hope she gets the Emmy she deserves.

      • Dara says:

        No, no, @browniecakes – you were right the first time, horrific pretty much covers the paper knickers incident.

  28. Hannah says:

    Tay tays the human snake emoji. Toms the human cringe emoji.😂

  29. Margo S. says:

    Well, I am definitely laughing at Tom. This guy thought he was doing such a great thing for his career and it blew up in his face. He listened to the wrong people and I hope he’s learned his lesson! Taylor Swift is a stooge.

    • Elle says:

      It is funny how quickly he managed to lose any and all semblance of being a ‘serious’ actor …

    • altariel says:

      Poor Tommy. We ARE laughing at you. Hopefully he has learned something, but if not, there’s more laughing at him to come.

    ….I was really surprised…the trailer for Kong looks quite good… formulaic though…still hope the Kong wins though…& unless he does I aint watchin the movie….

    Tom is and will always be a dweeb. He’s smart enough to know not to go there. let us laugh and be at peace. He’s not a Hot Guy, but a nice guy… keep up the nice guy act Tom. Stay away from hot and lady killer roles.

  33. whatthewhat says:

    last taylor or hiddles post someone commented that Swift is a magnificent beard and holy crap I am starting to become a conspiracy theorist because it is the only way i can rationlise this madness!

  34. Elle says:

    Tom needs to take a page from Sebastian Stan’s playbook and do a few supporting roles in some high-profile prestige pieces. I know Tommy wants to be a big star and all, but these small-budget, straight-to-DVD movies are not helping his career. Yes, he’s the lead, but it doesn’t matter if no one’s watching. Get a supporting role in a movie people will see, show everyone you can act, and Taylor Swift will eventually become nothing more than a ‘youthful’ indiscretion.

  35. browniecakes says:

    Even Gossip Cop can’t refute this. He will just look like he has absolutely no self awareness if they say, ‘Tom Hiddleston does not feel he’s a laughingstock’. Why the hell not?

  36. cc says:

    Yep, I will never look at Loki the same way.

  37. Spidey says:

    What Tom really really needs is for some other actor to do something either even more stupid or very evil to take the focus away.

    • browniecakes says:

      Orlando came close. But like his movies, people glanced and moved on.

    • shelly* says:

      @spidey Tom has copped more flak than Johnny Depp, it’s bizarre the amount of stick TH has got.

      Cumberbatch needs to be caught popping to the shops in a Peppa Pig onesie, to take the heat off Tommy boy.

      I’m gutted the summer of Tayto is over, but all good things etc.

  38. Kate says:

    post Tiddles has nothing to do with it. He was a laughing stock as soon as he put on that fool tank top.

  39. Verdant33 says:

    I never liked the pairing between Tom and Swift for many reasons but I never thought he was a laughing stock. That shirt, I know, I know, but I thought it was funny of him and a big FU to everyone else. It may have been a mistake but I didn’t know much about her except that she was successful at what she did. I figured he saw that at first and thought that she would be great until he found out more about her and got out of that situation fast.
    Tom strikes me as someone who is pretty strong so I’m sure he’ll be fine and I hope he doesn’t let the disproportionately mean, negative comments, articles, and the trolling get to him too much. He should remember that the internet is a cesspool for trolls and most articles online are click bait with no real sources what so ever. Also all of the trolling online are coming from people who where never fans of his to begin with and love getting that high from any amount of discomfort that person may feel. And if want to talk about a laughing stock, there is nothing more pathetic then that.

    • guest says:

      @verdant33 thank you, thank you very much. Those trolls were really getting into my nerves but your comment made me smile. :D

    • AlmostThere says:

      Thank you! So well said, and I agree with you on everything!

      And the tank top mocking is getting so old. Just sounds like a bunch of mean school girl dissing after a while.

      It’s really not that funny to mock people that aren’t taking their selves too seriously and are just having some lighthearted foolery. It might be cringy or mock worthy for a bit, but in truth, it doesn’t have the legs to continuously disparage his character and career with. It just becomes tiresome and obvious that people are just being mean or trying to be self important their selves. Sad.

    • Cindy says:

      Thank you ! And well said.

    • TotallyBiased says:

      Even Idris said he’d have worn the tank top. So, yeah. What you said. And the infamous paper knickers shoot was done before TS, but the separate, early release of just his pics (as well as which specific pics were selected for the multi-person spread) ALL happened AFTER Tiddles went public. It was pretty clear the mag was out to get as much mileage from that as possible.

      • lilacflowers says:

        Good to see you, TB! Hope all is well and that you have been enjoying the last weeks of summer.

      • TotallyBiased says:

        Hey, lilac! Sorry, I just saw this. My commenting didn’t really fit the CB environment, evidently, so I kept it to myself for awhile. :)
        But I just can’t stay away!

    Hamilton on PBS Great Performances Oct 21!

  41. Sheila says:

    Goodness, trying to avoid the kool-aid being served and instead will head over to the veranda.🍾 Plan on watching the Emmy awards show with y’all!

  42. The Recluse says:

    Poor boy is going to have to triple down on the Shakespeare on stage and go the serious Indie route to cleanup his street cred. Get crackin’ there, Tom.

  43. MD says:

    He’s become a laughingstock. Duh, no kidding. And in other news, water is wet.

    Hiddleston has no one to blame but himself since he willfully engaged in that ridiculous relationship with Taylor Swift. I have no sympathy for either one of them. Let that egg rest on his face until he learns not to manipulate love as a tool for career advancement.

    I want to reiterate what someone else said below re: ages. I get that they’re celebrities, but I work with guys who are 35 like Tom. If one of them kept coming to work going on and on about his 26-year-old girlfriend, he would also rate a hard eyeroll. That’s how I see this.

    I think it’s a real shame he and his team make such missteps…after the “Hiddlesbum” notice he got for The Night Manager (plus good reviews for a prestige drama), he really could have capitalized on that to reinforce a grown-up, sexy image (if that’s what he wanted). But, he decided to go another way…

  46. Chef Grace says:

    Oh FFS! This is a gossip site..we gossip and take the piss out of Hiddles because we are on a Gossip Site..The adults here understand. :)
    If you want to love him wonderful! if you want to diss him for fun, OKAY!
    If you wish to defend him, sure, why not..but understand this is not a TUMBLR fan site, it is a G.O.S.S.I.P site. LOL
    We drink, we play we gossip. :)

  47. browniecakes says:

    Is he getting on a plane soon or what?

    • lilacflowers says:

      Given the length of the flight, I think he would have left at some point yesterday. He was at that coffee shop, looking at something on some woman’s phone, complete with head thrown back laugh, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t fly later in the day. Or he could be on a plane now.

      • Beach girl says:

        Actually I’m betting Marvel flew Tom and possibly Idris in already, undercover. Bafta Tea this afternoon so let’s see if there are pics soon.

  48. Browniecakes says:

    Kong Skull Island is doing some reshoots next month – standard stuff. Wonder if TH needs to be involved.

  49. Chef Grace says:

    According to the Mirror, Tay Tay will be attending the Emmys. Another outlet says she is just on the guest list.
    It is just insane how things get spun. :)

    • lilacflowers says:

      And she was busy in Nashville today, which I only know because her followers insist on tagging TH in all the pictures of her they post on Instagram.

  50. WhatTheHell? says:

    Pictures on Twitter of Tom and Priyanka Chopra at Emmys rehearsals. It appears they will be presenting together.

  51. Spidey says:

    As a general question, and about celebs in general and not anyone in particular – how much stuff is “leaked” to the press and how much is just plain made up by the press?

  52. Nibbi says:

    i hate it when people develop a stock “taking pictures face.” sexist perhaps but it think it’s even more ridiculous on men than on women. duck lips in selfies is stupid and narcissistic but at least overt; grown adult men ie this guy with his “furrowed sexy-guy anxious brow” (when he was with her all summer) and/or “sucked-in cheekbones” (anyone notice how this is new? all of his pics now are consistently sucked-in face) – i could be wrong, but there is just something so artificial-seeming about his “candid” shots.

  53. Chloe says:

    Someday, I hope I too can say “my good friends Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba”.
