Tilda Swinton, 58, steps out in New York with her longtime love Sandro Kopp

Tilda Swinton greets NYC legend Radioman while leaving The Bowery Hotel

My favorite episode of the OG Twilight Zone is “Queen of the Nile” - the one where the journalist is interviewing a famous actress and he’s trying to nail down her age and as it turns out, she’s Cleopatra and she’s been alive for two millennia. Those are the questions we’re going to be asking of Tilda Swinton at some point. This lady is 58 years old! Seriously. She turns 59 this fall. She’s not a perfect, ageless creature but she does not look close to 60 at all. Tilda has been in New York this week to attend some events in and around the Tribeca Film Festival. These are photos of Tilda and Sandro Kopp coming out of their hotel at different times of the week.

In “Queen of the Nile,” Cleo stays young by drugging young men and then having scarab beetles suck out their life force, then using the scarab beetles to give her the men’s life forces. I’m telling you, it’s the best episode. I’m not saying that’s what’s happening here. I’m just saying there might be some mild vampirism happening. Sandro Kopp is Tilda’s long time lover and he’s 41 years old. They basically look the same age. I’ll admit that I’ve low-key found Sandro attractive in the past, back when he just had brunette hair and that big bushy beard. What do you think of peroxide Sandro? It’s a look, I guess. What I enjoy is that he doesn’t look like he’s desperately clinging to some beardy hipster nonsense, nor does it look like Tilda is particularly annoyed by him. They really are a golden couple.

    Did their hotel catch on fire? Because I can’t think of any other reason for the outfits in the last couple of photos.

      Lol. His pants are atrocious with those scribbles. Tucked into striped socksy boots, no less! The peroxide hair is not a good look. He’s trying to look like he’s not trying. But He’s serving Tilda so it’s all good.

  2. MsIam says:

    But what is she wearing in that second pic? Pajamas? Hey, as a fellow boomer, I say get it girl with your young thang!

  3. Lightpurple says:

    That top picture is rather restrained for Tilda. Was she going to a funeral? The bottom ones are classic Tilda.

  4. Hmmm says:

    Everyone loves her because she’s ~Eccentric~ but she creeps me out and I find her to be quite boring, tbh.

  5. Carol says:

    It doesn’t matter who she dates, however I always thought she was a lesbian. Huh

  6. BlueSky says:

    OMG Kaiser, I loved that episode. It’s right up there with “To Serve Man”. “It’s a cookbook!” That line gets me every time.

  7. Grant says:

    I think Tilda is pretty ageless. She does NOT look anywhere near 60 in these pictures. To me she looks exactly as the same as she did over a decade ago when she first pinged my radar in that Narnia movie. She may not be your typical devastating beauty like Charlize Theron or Margot Robbie but I still think she’s very striking. I love how she can pull off really outlandish lewks one day and then look absolutely smashing in something conservatively chic and stylish the next. It’s kind of like her immense acting talent. She’ll take a wacky, weird role in some arthouse film and then spellbind us with a more straight-laced performance in something like Michael Clayton or We Need to Talk About Kevin. I just love her!

  8. Hazel says:

    He must be tall right? Tilda is at least 6 feet. And yeah, she looks younger than 58.

  9. Rice says:

    I don’t have a favourite OG Twilight Zone because they’re ALL brilliant, not to mention I legit believe that they’ve spawned the plots of many subsequent movies. Which is why I never miss the annual NYE marathon on Syfy.

  10. Kat says:

    This looks like my definition of “beardy hipster nonsense.” LOLOLOL

  11. FluffyPrincess says:

    I down with anything Tilda does. I am so fascinated by her — from her looks, to her fashion, to her movie choices and her personal life. . .also by the fact that she was a classmate and friend of Lady Diana Spencer. . .

  12. Case says:

    Tilda looks great but I mostly just want to talk about Twilight Zone. My favorite episode (along with many other people) is probably Eye of the Beholder, but Twenty-Two and Number 12 Looks Just Like You are also SO good, among so many others. One of my all time favorite shows.

    • delorb says:

      I don’t know the name of this episode, but it’s from the classic version. A woman was driving across the country and spun out. She realizes that she’s unharmed and continues on her journey. But every few miles she notices a hitchhiker on the road. Then she realizes it’s the same guy. Try as she might she can’t outrun him. I think everyone can guess the ending. I tried watching this at night recently and couldn’t.

  13. Lola Lola3 says:

    Oh please oh please let Tilda be the next 007. Such a badass! She can do anything.

  14. LoLoInTheSky says:

    They do not look the same age, at all. He looks like a 30s hipster and she looks to be in her late 40s.

  15. Anare says:

    I think he’s quite attractive.

  16. LadyGrainacorn says:

    Fun factoid, Sandro had a blink and you’ll miss it cameo as Glorfindel in “Return of the King” when Aragorn is crowned by Gandalf and Arwen shows up to marry him!

  17. Nuzzy says:

    Orlando: another movie where Tilda clues us in to her androgynous alien time-traveller nature. When her mothership comes to conquer, well… it’s not like she didn’t tell us!
