Red carpet for ISTL has started. Tom and EO arrived separately. Pics on Twitter and Torrilla.

203 Name: Anon : 2015-09-11 23:29 ID:LT72Chzz

Not I'd say looking very "together". He had more chemistry with Tilda Swinton for ISTL.

204 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-11 23:44 ID:vIW3gBsS

"Tom Hiddleston is very impressive in I SAW THE LIGHT, capturing Hank Williams voice with eerie power. I wish the film was better."

Uh-oh. At least Tom was named as the one positive.
"I SAW THE LIGHT: Tom Hiddleston's musical numbers are the only highlights of this bland Hank Williams biopic. It's an anemic WALK THE LINE."

"I Saw the Light is extremely disappointing. Script and direction are weak but performances good. #TIFF15"

https://twitter. com/MaijaKappler/status/642500182526050304

The reviews I'm sharing are a bit more critical of the film, since the very positive ones I've seen have all been from fangirl types. Not the most objective sources. :)

Columnist from the Daily Mail liked it:

Hum. May explain why he has been tweeting about Crimson Peak more. Our boy's no fool and although he reasonably says he's proud of his performance in ISTL he probably knows in his heart of hearts that CP is the better film. I haven't seen a single tweet saying "meh CP".

He looks a bit subdued on the pics I've seen. Though on the bright side, his hair must have been flattened down for that suit photoshoot not cut really short. He looks nice.

212 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 06:27 ID:Heaven

Well, I was out enjoying my Friday night, I'll look everything later, but you want to tell me nobody on the red carpet asked if these two are together?

213 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 06:32 ID:Heaven

214 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 06:33 ID:Heaven

>>211 yep

I'm glad that his performance is well received. As for the film, we kind of knew it wasn't that good didn't we? Only fangirls could think that those not so good reports from the test-screens were a plot against TH.

215 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-12 06:33 ID:vIW3gBsS

This one's pretty bad:

216 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 06:39 ID:LT72Chzz

If they did, nobody on tumblr has giffed or quoted it yet. State of play appears to be they arrived separately, no hand holding or PDA. There is one photo set of him with a arm around her (other hand in pocket!) but it is in front of the advertising board so whether it is "we are together" or "Tom poses with arm round co star as we have seen a hundred times before" is anybody's guess. Aside from the photos in front of the board I haven't seen any of them where he is touching her, or even where they are standing together save for the q&a after the movie.

And Bora Bora arm is back which made me chuckle:

217 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 06:40 ID:Heaven

>>215 ouch, but probably very accurate

218 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-12 06:43 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>216 There's one photo of them standing together at the after party, a couple of them with the cake, and some of them separately or with other co-stars/crew etc. They arrived at the party separately.

219 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 06:45 ID:Heaven

>>216 yes, I've just read EO was papped alone when she arrived in Toronto, but not TH. Given they also arrived separately at the RC, I would go as far as saying they are not even much friendly anymore, BoraBora arm is a declaration :)
Torrilla has video interviews.

223 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 06:53 ID:LT72Chzz

>>219 Sorry should have expressed myself better. I knew he had been interviewed but I meant if someone had asked "are you together" I'd have expected it to be clipped or giffed whatever the answer.
>>218 I saw the after party pics. I didn't think they looked very together in Jose either. I appreciate they might not want to give everyone the money shot on the red carpet but if you're with someone surely there comes a point when you hold hands or something. I'd have thought the after party among friends would be that time.

224 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-12 06:55 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>223 Yeah. Even if they were together before (which I still doubt), I don't think they are now.

225 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-12 06:57 ID:vIW3gBsS

Also, there were a number of reporters doing interviews on the red carpet, but I don't think they've all posted their videos yet. I expect they'll go online during the weekend.

226 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 07:02 ID:Heaven

>>223 My bad, I haven't had coffee yet.
In that borabora hand photo she is angled away from him isn't she? not even an arm around him.

>>224 I doubt with you and add that if they were just friend, the friendship is gone now. as far as RC predictions go, we nailed the separate and hardly talking to each other part.

227 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 07:03 ID:LT72Chzz

>>224 I am beginning to think you called it right. The body language feels very off to me. With Susanna Fielding he couldn't keep his hands off her. And with Tilda or Jess same thing though they obviously never dated. At the OLLA premiere he and Tilda were so sexy with one another I would have believed it if someone told me they were going out. He held her hand the whole time and he couldn't take his eyes off her.

228 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-12 07:04 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>226 High five to all the wonderful people on this board! Sometimes I feel like this is the one place on the internet to find reasonable people, at least in regards to Tom.

229 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 07:04 ID:Heaven

Well, I guess TH doesn't have to intensively promote this film at festivals at this point.

LA Times article about HR.

230 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-12 07:05 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>227 He totally had a crush on Tilda, nobody will be able to convince me otherwise. :)

231 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 07:07 ID:Heaven

>>227 Tilda always hold hands with her friends, she said so in an interview, I found their behaviour very similar to how Rachel behaved with TH at TIFF for The Deep Blue See, maternal.

>>232 Yeah, but in some other photos she is pressing her body against his. I really don't get it...

235 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 07:12 ID:LT72Chzz

>>230 I'd go gay for Tilda, I think she's wonderful! Totally agree that he fancied her madly. And she him. I thought they looked gorgeous together. Always assumed that when he was with a GF you'd see the same chemistry. When he's hot for someone it's pretty obvious. Not the case yesterday.
But whence US Weekly? I still don't buy that the May article was a total fabrication.

236 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 07:16 ID:LT72Chzz

>>228 And yes totally. That's why I'm here. I like to think we can speculate on a fun way without being crazy about it.

And - most fun of all - bets are on for the HR red carpet....!!!

237 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 07:16 ID:Heaven

>>234 it's the thing with photos, they can trick your eyes :)
But the RC was live on periscope and from what I'm reading, they were really distant.

239 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-12 07:20 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>239 me too. Though that was my prediction when we first discussed it!!

243 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 08:37 ID:Heaven

>>242 you know you're right, to make it more interesting we should add motivations, no show because there was never anything going on, because there's nothing going on now or because they don't want that kind of chattering?
Though after last night there's hardly much doubt left and TH's didn't mind the chattering when he was with SF at TIFF.
Maybe we could shift our predictions to HR's dinner party?

244 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 08:43 ID:LT72Chzz

Duh I mean 904. Though qaz was also bang on the money in 903.

246 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 08:49 ID:Heaven

>>244 Oh yes, and I used your 1 motivation for my prediction if I remember well: there was never anything going on.
We really were quite thorough in thread3, there's basically everything :)

247 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 08:56 ID:LT72Chzz

I reckon something went on during filming. The break up of her engagement, him going underground and all method-y, and the original US Weekly article all to my mind point to some intense connection and time together. Whether sexual who knows. I think like most holiday romances once it got into real life it was utimately doomed. Pursegategate looks in retrospect like the last hurrah. I think after that encounter only one person thought the relationship had legs. I imagine its demise has been hastened by the knowledge that the film is a stinker.

So I still go with no 2 on balance - just.

248 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 09:03 ID:LT72Chzz

Oh and by the way WHAT is Elizabeth Olsen wearing? She is pretty with a good figure and yet she appears to be wearing the drapes from around Morticia's dressing table. Why?

249 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-12 09:10 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>248 Hahaha I know! The dress is awful, and so are the shoes. She looked nice at Deauville a couple days ago in the white dress, I'm not sure what happened between then and TIFF.

250 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 09:16 ID:Heaven

>>248 >>249 she remembered she was going to see TH again? ;) Not at all flattering that dress.

254 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 11:10 ID:Heaven

oh, did EO gibe TH during the q&a "he's so much more eloquent than I am" as in "he talks so much"?

255 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 11:55 ID:LT72Chzz

>>251 ouch. not a good review at all as far as the film as a whole goes. Despite the individual performance being praised I doubt they will get the nominations since the film seems by common consensus to be poor. These are the worst reviews I have seen of a project he's been involved in. I feel so sorry for him after he invested so much emotional energy into it.

256 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 12:00 ID:Heaven

>>255 yes, much as one can be happy about his work, it's difficult to promote a film nobody likes.

257 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 12:01 ID:Heaven

Did someone understood what was said at minute 19:55, when a fan says something to TH and EO jumps in and then says sorry? I can't hear anything.

259 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 12:36 ID:Heaven

Here a comment of a CB poster who is working at TIFF in marketing or PR I think

"There is not much buzz about the movie at the festival, to be honest, and that's worse. The usual gang of fangirls doesn'tmake a movie and Hank Williams is not exactly a well known entity in the surroundings of Toronto to create a buzz to move the movie forward. The USA will be a better place to judge perception by the public. But in terms of professional buzz, from what I hear, no, definitely a non contender and my colleagues comment on the lack of stronger director mostly not that the performances were average. P.s. we are doing our press-clipping and I am reading Hiddleston - the social media star, the social media fans declared love, etc"

260 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 13:50 ID:LT72Chzz

>>259 Thanks! Anything else of interest? I no longer have the energy to wade through all that "my husband on the veranda" crap that those CB threads get swamped with.

261 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 14:01 ID:LT72Chzz

Random thought on the q&a - if nobody knew the history would anybody look at them and think they were together? If they are in a relationship they are hiding it unbelievably well.

262 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 14:09 ID:Heaven

>>260 Yes, there's a lot to skip to find anything of interest. But other than the same poster saying that they were both bland (referring to their outfits and attitude I suppose) and the links to reviews we also posted, I didn't see anything else.

263 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 14:14 ID:Heaven

>>261 nobody, but actually, that's problem I have with pap night, if we didn't have the usweekly article in May, we would never have taken that for a romantic date, the body language was all wrong.

264 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 14:16 ID:LT72Chzz

Yeah they looked to me almost like they'd had a row.

265 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 14:32 ID:LT72Chzz

Against my better judgment I had a peek at CB. The party line over there seems to be that they are together but because he is a Good Person he is not using it for publicity and/or not baiting the fans with it. I must say I really don't get the logic there. If they are together, wasn't the whole point of pap night to get it out there so the fans could get over themselves and/or as a prelude to the RC so it didn't look totally manufactured? And I still would be surprised if he could keep a lid on his feelings. I would expect this at the very least
Or this:
Aren't they just adorable?

266 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 14:48 ID:Heaven

>>265 or like with Lara Pulver
There's absolutely no logic to that line of thought, it doesn't even take into consideration the fact that after pap night they spent more than a month apart and it's not like they were especially busy (and since we had an almost weekly sighting of him we know she wasn't with him).
Besides, we are focusing on TIFF, but TH has other festivals and RCs to attend and then he'll be off filming so not spending time together at all makes no sense.

267 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 14:51 ID:LT72Chzz

>>266 Though I always thought the hug for LP was just solidarity with someone else who thought orange was a good colour for foundation....

268 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 14:55 ID:Heaven

>>267 lol
I remember the DM not even reconizing her and calling her TH's new love and she tweeted about it, because she had a bf and making fun of them because they couldn't spot her unless she was naked.

269 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 14:59 ID:LT72Chzz

Am I right that TIFF Is the only festival outing for ISTL that he was slated to attend? Then I guess the U.S. premiere whenever that is, if he can make it with filming commitments. Not actually many more opportunities for us to see them together. And I shall be interested to see how much SPC pushes it after those bad reviews, and how he copes doing publicity for it. Just posting those OLLA links and comparing the thousand watt smile to yesterday made me see a real difference. Or comparing yesterday to ComicCon when he looked like he was having the time of his life.

270 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 15:10 ID:Heaven

>>269 yes, you are correct. And yes the difference is remarkable.

There could be others. I can't believe they are not going to use TIFF to either squash these rumours.

282 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-12 21:36 ID:vIW3gBsS

That Daily Mail article was awful. Most of their articles are awful. Plus some of the info was wrong - that sneaky tumblr pic was taken only a couple days before the paparazzi incident in July, not all the way back in May.

Unless they outright deny that they are dating, the media will keep reporting on the "relationship." Romance gets people to click links and buy papers. And I don't think they're going to deny it - I think they will let the press use the "on and off screen couple!" angle of promotion since the reviews of ISTL have been so bad save for their performances.

>>282 I think saying nothing may be the smartest thing he has done in ages. What can he say to make it better? No we were never dating makes her look really really bad (US Weekly loser article). Saying we were but we aren't now is hurtful to her - and as you say loses the only angle anyone is currently interested in. Saying we are dating - doesn't appear to be true. Every article about the relationship angle is going with the pic of them together in front of the advertising board. I still haven't seen anything of them together looking like a couple as opposed to co stars.
