Just been examining the Torrilla screen caps, for science. That's a very lowcut magazine he's wearing.

>>947 I have such high hopes for this movie at this point that I am almost afraid to be disappointed. So far it seems right up my alley and I can't wait. I've read the book and I quite liked it (not to the point where I would be screaming 'masterpiece' though) but this seems even better.

953 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-07 22:01 ID:3qZkwGOv

>>950 Oh, yeah, I agree. CH is never going to have critical acclaim, I don't think. I think he got closest with Rush, but critics praised the movie as a whole more than his performance. Still, he's not even managed to find commercial success outside of Marval - they've all been stinkers/box office poison.

TH has had critical acclaim outside of Marvel, but I think 'the general moving-going public' know him as Loki. And the Loki-lovers are a significant part of his fanbase too. So, despite his ability, he might end up being 'that Loki guy' as a lowest common denominator.

Whispers: I wouldn't mind just seeing a short Loki cameo in Thor 3. I'm okay with him 1) not being in Infinity Wars or 2) having very small parts in IW.

>>952 qaz, I love your high-brow, academic approach.

>>951 Anon, I love your low-brow, salacious approach.

Don't ever change!!

>>954 I think an English degree turns one into an unutterable pervert. Or ot does if you do it right.

So, we've got the answers to at least one question:

Was she in HI? Yes.

Does this mean they were together in LA? Was she in London? I think the evidence would point toward 'very possible' if not 'yes' as well.

I also think this may be developing into something more than a FWB.

(In olde tyme movie news voice) Stay tuned for more on this developing story...

958 Name: qaz : 2016-01-07 22:40 ID:tY18OJ3i

>>954 Anon., are you being sassy as usual? :) This post of mine was as academic and high-brow as TH is... IDK, reserved and lethargic, lol.

>>956 Oh! So I guess at least some of those sightings were true then.
It's weird that the OP claims that it's not her though, lol.

959 Name: 705 : 2016-01-07 22:42 ID:sLyoJCVK

Yep. 😆

960 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-07 22:45 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>958 But it's her.

I'm never right about these things but... I feel as if they've dodged and denied because of the timing, i.d., the end of her engagement. She doesn't want to be accused of having an affair, and TH doesn't want to be seen as 'the other man' who broke up an engagement.

Sooo, I wonder if they've gone underground and as going to emerge as a couple - yep, you know what's coming - when they start doing press for ISTL. Maybe a few coy references in print and then a confirmation in a joint interview.

Or maybe they'll just keep denying it until they're up at the altar!

961 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-07 22:53 ID:D5Aqosgp

I can't really tell because I'm on mobile but is it definitely EO and not Erin Moriarty, actress who was at the wrap party and looks a lot like EO?

962 Name: Anon : 2016-01-07 23:00 ID:tB216AlG

>>960 Definitely her on the top left pic. Not sure about the one on the top right. That might be the other girl who looks a bit like her, though the pics are so tiny it is hard to tell. But she is definitely in some of the pics and if that is from the wrap party that says to me, girlfriend. You don't bring someone to a work "do" unless they are what a friend at my work charmingly calls a "non transient other."

Agree re hiding it due to the timing (as we said all along since May). He is about to look like a right prat when he confesses that contrary to previous assertions he has been seeing her on and off for a year; now everyone will be 100% certain there was overlap as opposed to wondering if there might have been.

963 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-07 23:04 ID:D5Aqosgp

>>962 Okay I've been looking at pics from HI and this collage is from the laser tag night - everyone is wearing the same clothes. Which means it WAS EO jumping up behind Tom in the gray jacket, which can be seen in the top right photo of the collage. Guess there was a photo booth at the laser tag place.

964 Name: anon1 : 2016-01-07 23:05 ID:PiA4WJQQ

>>961 That's definitely EO. Besides, Jordan Vogt-Roberts follows Moriarty on instagram, so he would have tagged her too in the pic if that was her.

965 Name: Anon : 2016-01-07 23:07 ID:tB216AlG

>>963 Ooh good sleuthing skilz! I was looking at TH clothes which is moronic I know as TH only has one tshirt, doubtless chiselled off him by mum over the Christmas hols for a good wash. When was that? At the time she was seen in HI or at another time?

966 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-07 23:10 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>958 No, I was being serious! You've read the book, you commented on the book. While I'm here like: pretty pictures, naked TH, sex scenes!! You were completely high-brow.

967 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-07 23:19 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>965 Marc Evan Jackson posted his laser tag photo on 11.21. The sighting was the weekend of the Paris attacks, so 11.13/14.

TH only showed up in a few of the laser tag photos that went around. He wasn't in every laser tag photo because he was off tagging EO!

968 Name: qaz : 2016-01-07 23:20 ID:tY18OJ3i

I agree, definitely her. Maybe OP feels the compulsion to just deny deny deny and hope that then it goes away :)

Sooo.. I too wonder if she gets to become someone to write home about, at least at some point.

969 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-07 23:23 ID:D5Aqosgp

>>965 I think most of the EO sightings were within a few days of laser tag, so she must have been in Hawaii that week.

I'm still putting my money on FWB but we'll see. Whatever level of relationship JA was, I think this is the same - maybe slightly less as of now. He brought her to a few events, went on a tropical holiday with her, said he was single... same old same old.

(Is it wrong that I'm secretly hoping our EO-hating friend pops in for a discussion?)

970 Name: qaz : 2016-01-07 23:23 ID:tY18OJ3i

>>968 Just to be clear - I wasn't talking about the original poster Jordan Vogt-Roberts of course, but about that lady from the link saying it's not EO.

971 Name: Anon : 2016-01-07 23:26 ID:tB216AlG

>>970 Jordan VR appears to be deleting comments asking if that is EO (according to the teatime blog). That says to me pretty clearly that it is (as if we needed any confirmation)

972 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-07 23:26 ID:8GLG1MAn

Poor JVR! I wonder if it's going to be a tense set now that the director maybe spilled the beans on his star's secret luver.

973 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-07 23:27 ID:D5Aqosgp

>>971 I think that person may have been comparing the comments on JVR's post and the fan repost. All comments about EO have been on the fan repost, but I haven't seen any on JVR's post appear or disappear.

974 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-07 23:29 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>969 Oh, she'll pop up at the townbycycle. I predict a long letter with insider knowledge from her friends and people who know the truth.

Either way - everyone that jumped down her throat owes that girl on twitter an apology!

975 Name: Anon : 2016-01-07 23:32 ID:tB216AlG

>>972 One hears JVR has the emotional intelligence of a peanut so I am not surprised he has let the cat out of the bag. If there really was a cat. We did think she was probably in HI (or all of us except one...!) and as anonsy has demonstrated this photo dates from then. Not a return visit for the wrap party.

I still say - if she flies to Australia then it is game on. Probably. As I type this I do think slightly that EO is thirsty like the Jarthy, only with money enough to follow him round the globe. He doesn't do the chasing, seemingly.

976 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-07 23:36 ID:D5Aqosgp

>>975 Oh, Jarthy. I never thought I'd miss you, but here I am.

977 Name: Anon : 2016-01-07 23:39 ID:tB216AlG

>>975 Me too. She would have rocked pap night. Blow job in the cab while somehow still wearing that Cheshire Cat grin!

978 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-07 23:46 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>976 >>975

I hope you are ALL crossing yourselves when you say/type her name!

Hail, JArthy, full of thirst! Blessed are you amongst FWB.

Now, I have to go to confession. I hate going to confession.

979 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-07 23:54 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>975 Oh, she is GOING to show up in Australia. She's already got the tickets booked. Hell, when's Australian fashion week - that's the perfect excuse!

As you said - the thirst is strong. And, remember, you can't let the man you turfed out your fiancé for get away without a the death! She's going to be white-knuckling this one.

They'll enjoy the southern hemisphere summer, pop into some cafes, pet a koala - it will all be good. And then we'll see how it develops from there, both relationship and publicity wise.

980 Name: qaz : 2016-01-08 00:01 ID:tY18OJ3i

>>978 whispers I confess I secretly kinda liked her, and especially to watch her efforts to escape the obscurity TH put her into. sigh Good times.

And that's the only confession any of the churches are ever getting from me.

981 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-08 00:01 ID:8GLG1MAn

Okay, I've got to go food shopping - the cupboard is bare!

If I come back to their marriage license posted on IG, I'm just going to shrug my shoulders!

Se you on the other side!

982 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-08 00:05 ID:D5Aqosgp

What a shit show.

983 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-08 00:05 ID:8GLG1MAn

One more and then I'll go get food.

>>980 Yes, qaz!! He totally put baby in a corner when he should have been Dirty Dancing with her.

I did too many years of Catholic school, so I can absolve you of all your sins...there, done!

984 Name: qaz : 2016-01-08 00:08 ID:tY18OJ3i

>>980 What's up with that bold font! Meh, I really need to read those instructions for posting on this board someday.

And I'm off to bed. I've already stayed too late out of the excitement for this development, lol.

985 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-08 00:45 ID:D5Aqosgp

Putting on my tin foil hat for a minute... has anyone noticed that every time some THEO nonsense happens it coincides with some film promotion or damage control for one of them?

986 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-08 05:18 ID:D5Aqosgp

Update: Jordan Vogt Roberts is indeed deleting comments about EO on his Instagram post. It's getting pretty vile over there.

987 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-01-08 06:50 ID:pAFOg9nm

>>985 Yes anonsy, yes I have.

988 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 07:10 ID:w/oVtDw9

>>975 I said back when I said it, July or August that there were a lot of similarities with JA, except that EO has not only the money but 3 times the ego because she has a name, she is prettier, she is an actress.

But, goodness, here goes his credibility, even if it's the absurd case that EO is stalking him hoping he will fall head over heel and marry her, this shattered his image for good.
The comments at JVR says it all.
The AMC panel should be fun, maybe he'll skip it now.

For really, for the life of me, I can't understand how an intelligent man would choose to do this? How does this help ISTL? How does this help him promoting HR or TNM?

989 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 07:21 ID:Heaven

(the post above was mine)

It certainly is strange to fly to Hawaii for the weekend and spend it with the film crew at a laser tag game. It doesn't smell of gf exactly.

990 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 07:45 ID:Heaven

I know you guys established this but that is EO, sheis wearing the same sweater (didn't she feel hot wearing that while playing laser tag?) she was wearing at Savannah Film Festival

991 Name: Anon : 2016-01-08 07:50 ID:tB216AlG

>>989 The comments at JVR are like ours over the last 7 months (less eloquent and witty obviously). "Why lie"; "I never know about this relationship till they brought it to the centre" and (my favourite for its pithiness) "just makes them both look inauthentic, fake, silly and guilty." None of this would matter particularly if TH weren't obsessed with telling us all how authentic he is in his public persona.

>>989 not sure I agree! If you have your FWB fly in for a booty call you are maybe a little discreet with her. But if it's a GF and there is a friends from work event you bring her along.

>>987 Yes this is becoming very noticeable. The day the HR trailer is released?!! I could believe JVR just dropped the ball and didn't think, were it not for the fact that there are probably a lot of photos of EO and TH on people's phones witch they have not posted, presumably because they are aware that there is media interest and that the lovebirds wish to fly under the radar. So why now, eh?

A random thought: BL said she had lunch with TH on 19.12 and I joked that maybe it was a double date with her and her bloke and THEO. She's in these photos and has met EO. Maybe I wasn't so far from the truth there!

992 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 07:53 ID:Heaven

>>991 I agree with that, my point was that TH was on set from Monday to Friday so if you can only spend 2 days with your gf after not seeing her from some weeks, maybe you don't go straight to a laser tag game with the film crew. But it's a personal opinion of course.

993 Name: anonymous : 2016-01-08 08:22 ID:v66+n2nv

Well. LAX makes sense now.

994 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 08:28 ID:Heaven

Ok, this might turn into an exclusive for you guys, so back in November SLJ posted a photo of him on set with Miyavi (the Japanese actor in Jolie's Unbroken), I thought it strange since he wasn't announced as part of the cast but today he posted a photo at Brisbane airport so maybe he is also in the film.

Yes this is OT, but I'm bored with last night photo already.

995 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-08 08:41 ID:D5Aqosgp

>>991 I don't think Tom is particularly social media savvy. I'm sure he knows that people will take pictures and post them on the internet, but I don't think he necessarily considers how much people post and that his coworkers or director might think nothing of throwing a bunch of pics up on Instagram that he expected to stay private. Tom may have thought he was being discreet.

Or - alternative theory - something in the dynamic of the THEO relationship has changed since the photos were taken, so JVR thought posting the pics wouldn't be a big deal. For example, THEO broke up and is no more so pics from a couple months ago are no big deal. Or (less likely but still possible) THEO are going to go public as an item and so JVR thought pics would be okay.

>>992 I'm with you on this one. I had a friend who had a FWB who was from another state but passed through our city every so often for business. When she was around it was very casual, she'd hang out with our friend group, do activities with everyone, drinks, whatever, and then the two of them would go back to her hotel or his place to do their thing. They usually didn't stay the night together. On the other hand, another member of our friend group had a long distance boyfriend, and as soon as he got into town we barely saw either of them until he went home. I could go on forever with examples of people I've known but the general pattern is that long distance FWBs tend to be more group social while long distance BFs/GFs are more isolated for the time they have together.

996 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 09:21 ID:Heaven

>>995 After Tahiti and Papnight you'd think he'd know.
Either he isn't as intelligent as people would have us believe, or since it truly looks like EO is following him around trying to escape obscurity, like qaz put and the photos certainly support that, it may be it was her last attempt at something more than friend - whether she succeeded it's left to be seen.

In any case, like we said just before TIFF, the problem is that now is going to stick. It will be difficult for him to do another interview like the one in the Guardia this autumn stating:

  • “I have tried with all of my power for there not to be any inauthenticity,” he says. “There is no version of me presented to you that’s been created or is artificial. The people I’ve always respected have an integrity that is unassailable”

and still feel credible. Like anonsy said a few posts ago, part of his charm was his uniqueness in the Hollywood world of coming across as genuine, now even if with EO is over or it was never on or whatever it is/was, nobody will read his interviews in the same way. What's strange is that he could have avoided all this confusion.

So my question is, do we think he is really that stupid?
And are we due another Seneca quote on fb? Because my bet is that he might say something, if the media pick up on this and with Boyd interview fresh in everyone's mind it won't look nice and it won't certainly help ISTL or any hope of a nominee for Hank.

997 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 09:36 ID:Heaven

JOrdan Vogt-Roberts took down the the photo.
Not that it matters since it's everywhere on the internet but maybe this way the media won't be able to make an article on it?

999 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-08 09:46 ID:D5Aqosgp

>>997 Wow, what a mess. I'm thinking he probably took it down because of all the fighting in the comments. It's still up on another Instagram related to Kong so it was likely that rather than Tom asking him to remove it. No crazy comments on other Kong person's post as of now, so it'll be interesting to see if they leave it up. I hesitate to post their name so as not to direct any fandom wars in their direction... you never know who's reading this board.

1000 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 09:52 ID:Heaven

>>999 Could he have close the comments? Not an instagram expert.
Anyway it's the middle of the night in LA so unless TH got a call from Luke I doubt he was up to see this mess. He will, because one of the twitter fan account he follows tweeted it, as it did a twitter fan account for EO.
