Thread to talk about the actor Tom Hiddleston

2 Name: Anon : 2016-02-19 08:10 ID:gDkQNPan

I take it all back, the question was nuts. Though the main complaint seemed to be the rambling "I love you" intro which is a feature of many q&a, I would have thought.

>>9 well well well. She sure has her share of detractors on Tomblr. She defended the poorly behaved fans outside the Donmar for Coriolanus and has gotten into nasty name-calling threads with posters.

12 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-02-20 08:09 ID:Heaven

>>11 should serve as lesson to be more wary of these tumblr bloggers.

By the way, I didn't find this myself, it was posted at the teatime blog.

14 Name: Anon : 2016-02-20 08:47 ID:u9oBHuVQ

>>11 >>12 She is the one in that first tumblr link I posted (about him appearing at Berlinale) who said she NEEDED to know if he was definitely going to be there as she was going to drop everything and fly from London to Berlin if he was. When I saw someone asked the scratching question I nearly jokingly posted that maybe it was her. How right I was. She is a right oddball. But there are some bloggers who are normal and have good info.

15 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-02-20 08:54 ID:Heaven

>>14 I didn't make the connection, but I can't say anything surprise me very much at this point, beanup, frenchy, the bycycle, his fans are just plain crazy.

16 Name: Anon : 2016-02-20 09:08 ID:u9oBHuVQ

>>15 There is an apologia pro vita sua on her tumblr page which makes toe-curling reading. She thinks TH wanted to hear the question and Hugh Laurie rained on her parade. What it tends to suggest is that Hugh Laurie is a very good judge of character who knew where this was going in 5 words.

17 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-02-20 09:21 ID:Heaven

>>16 She lives in her own little world, doesn't she? But then that's always the case with these types, it's never their fault, TH is obviously always in agreement with them, it's other people that keeps him from saying so.

19 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-20 13:12 ID:Ep2jQcLc

It's never a good thing when the crazy fans are more vocal and visible than the sane ones. Sadly, the loons always seem to be front and center so often, especially in his fandom.

Here we were thinking that we all knew - too well - who the most infamous TH fan was, but now there's a new contender for wonkiest egg in the basket. Sigh.

Welcome to 7 everyone!

20 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-20 13:45 ID:xixDWTnE

>>16 I tried to read it, couldn't. I'll try again later.

The need for an apologia, especially one of that ridiculous length, suggests she's getting it in the neck big time from the online community. Good. I'd like to think HL's reaction - and the reaction of those on Tumblr and Twitter - would be a lesson, but I wouldn't put money on it.

>>11 It's always the ones that set themselves up as paragons of behavior that exhibit the worst behavior themselves. It's not surprising that she would think her question was appropriate if she thought the behavior of some Donmar fans was appropriate - and worthy of defense.

>>20 She is one of the ones I was thinking about when I said at the tail end of the last board that the superfans love to take the others to task for disrespecting his art by joking about the Hiddleconda. This particular individual is one of the chief offenders. I think she intended the question as some very earnest question about character in Unrelated but failed to see that a q&a about a different project 10 years later is not the time (or indeed to appreciate that the people who joke online about the Conda have the self-control to realise that if they meet him they shouldn't ask for measurements).

23 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-02-20 17:38 ID:89pEWkso

>>16 >>22A year ago, here's what she posted prior to Nuffield: zhora-salome tumblr com/post/109485194956/zhora-salome-im-so-torn-at-the-qa-in

...and now I just read her long post blaming Hugh Laurie. At Donmar she blamed the staff...

24 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-02-20 17:42 ID:8nuBIjc8

That fan in question is insane and she has a long sorted history in the TH fandom.

Bit of background: a few years ago she defended several fans who were accused of harassing Tom and chasing him down the street after Coriolanus. She is fond of the term "fan shaming" and used it against those who were calling these out of control fans out. I am finding it unbelievable that people on tumblr are defending her for what happened several days and putting Hugh Laurie on blast instead. Yes because her question about Unrelated was the most important thing of all at a film Q&A for a The Night Manager and how dare Hugh call her out on her out about her ridiculous question.

25 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-02-20 17:43 ID:8nuBIjc8

I was the one who just posted that, not sure why it's marked "couch potato".

26 Name: Anon : 2016-02-20 17:51 ID:k7FAacOJ

>>23 There is a nice and normal tumblr person called enchanted by hiddles who lives in Berlin and went along. She said it was mortifying, but that HL was actually trying to be kind by deflecting away from the crazy.

The most revealing thing was the comment by the culprit that the q&a was "my big chance". I have come across this phenomenon before. My mother in law bought a white outfit for my wedding day (no. I wasn't Bridezilla, truly, but just no) and when I called this into question she said in an incredibly hurt voice, "But it's MY BIG DAY."

27 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-02-20 18:03 ID:89pEWkso

When will rabid fans get it through their heads that they're Not. Special. Snowflakes. Who deserve attention from celebs whenever they please...arrgh!

28 Name: Anon : 2016-02-20 18:12 ID:k7FAacOJ

Would they have got it if someone had asked a question starting "when you played Loki, did you....?" There seems to be a misconception that because she asked a stupid question about an arty farty film that was ok.

Ah well. I would say I have a lot of sympathy for her as she is now being surrounded by all the other tumblr wingnuts with their flaming torches, aniyuer aspect of the fandom that I hate. However she has been the ringleader in that behaviour previously so I can't muster up much sympathy.

>>25 it's the board, it names anyone Couch Potato when you don't give a name.

30 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-02-20 18:26 ID:Heaven

>>28 one girl did it at the q&a for OLLA in Toronto in 2013, I seem to remember people giggled there too, but the girl didn't press. TH told later in an interview that the girl apoligised to him in person after the q&a.

31 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-20 18:37 ID:xixDWTnE

>>26 '...said it was mortifying, but that HL was actually trying to be kind by deflecting away from the crazy.'

Undoubtedly true, but Miss Unrelated can't blame herself (fan perfection) or TH (delicate and understanding artiste whose huge dong we must not mention), so HL it is!

32 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-20 18:47 ID:xixDWTnE

>>26 'My mother in law bought a white outfit for my wedding day.'

That's when you send in your maid of honor - and you send her in like a Sherman tank. You don't even touch that, you pass it along to your hard-nosed, enforcer MOH. It's the only true and valuable lesson I've learned from wedding prep.

33 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-20 18:51 ID:xixDWTnE

>>27 Never. Poor TH. Maybe the sun isn't responsible for those wrinkles. Maybe it's dealing with his less-than-stable fans that's aging him.

34 Name: Anon : 2016-02-20 20:41 ID:k7FAacOJ

>>32 My MIL and a Sherman tank could easily be confused with one another, even in daylight. I made my husband deal with it. Along with their request that we not leave the wedding reception for our hotel until we had hailed them a black cab.

35 Name: NewAnon : 2016-02-20 22:33 ID:Xfxv9xZA

I didn't even realize a new thread had started because the last one got full. And here I am checking the link everyday and thinking "hmm it's so quiet but so many pics and vids came out!" The flu has officially short circuited my brain.

>>26 your MIL thought it was HER day? Oh god oh jeez...no. Just no. I'm more in shock over that than the cringeworthy Q&A moment.

On that topic, her entire post pins the blame on Hugh Laurie for "hijacking her moment". Her moment of what? Her moment with Tom? A big long post that in a nutshell says - It's all Hugh's fault and Tom really wanted to answer her question but Hugh ruined everything with his stupid antics and just ugh but Tom was lovely and we could've had a moment but DAMN YOU HUGH LAURIE! eye roll The Internet is being very kind to her compared to how she's lambasted and cyber pitchfork mobbed other TH fans in the past.

36 Name: Anon : 2016-02-20 22:51 ID:k7FAacOJ

>>35 Adored only child of elderly parents, no daughter to fuss over and be mother of the bride to. You can see that she might be a trifle invested in the day. After some years of marriage, I can laugh about it. At the time I wanted to go after her with the steak knives off our gift list, believe me.

37 Name: Anon : 2016-02-20 22:55 ID:k7FAacOJ

Anyway, away from bridal politics and onto a more important topic. Since TNM isn't coming out in the US for another 5 years or something, are you Stateside peeps watching it on Iplayer via a proxy server? Or is anybody waiting? I seriously don't want to ruin anybody's fun with unintended spoilers.

38 Name: anonsy : 2016-02-20 22:59 ID:V6C+Feoq

>>37 I have methods that have worked with overseas shows in the past so I should be able to watch it within a day of airing. There's no way I'm waiting until April.

39 Name: Anon : 2016-02-20 23:15 ID:k7FAacOJ

If anyone is saving themselves for AMC I may have to employ Anon's patent spoiler-free weekly review:

Tension: taut/average/flaccid
Plot: Byzantine/fine after a glass of wine/a five year old could follow it
Level of bromance: Thor-Loki/Mckellen-Stewart/Saunders-Trump
In this episode TH is: clothed/shirtless/bum out again/Michael Fassbender

40 Name: anonsy : 2016-02-20 23:41 ID:V6C+Feoq

>>39 We could always start a new thread specifically for TNM. That way we could have intense discussions about TH'S exact level of bum exposure without worrying about spoilers.

41 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-02-20 23:42 ID:89pEWkso

>>37 i'll be doing the same thing as anonsy. I can't remember the AMC U.S. start date but I'm not waiting that long. Tumblr Spoliers helped kill nearly every surprise in Crimson Peak, so I'm not going to let that happen again.

42 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-20 23:46 ID:OpjJ2s4A

>>37 I'll be watching it live off the BBC (usingway away eoblockergay). The boy is working Sunday, so I'll be able to fangirl alone.

If enough people will be waiting, we could always use the 'Tim Hoddleston' thread to have spoiler-filled discussions. Those wanting/needing to wait could just not pop in. The Night Manager, starring Tim Hoddleston.

Or I could copy Anon and make a review system based on heart-eyes and Emmy statues a la twitter.

>>50 It's cherry blossom. It's more or less the lunar new year and Hanoi is renowned for its blossoms. I don't think handing them out is a thing, just that someone gave him some. The other thing he is holding is a traditional Vietnamese hat.

He looks utterly gorgeous in these pics. Torrilla has some press conference pics and he looks utterly adorable and happy in those too. Heart eyes, heart eyes!

Much more so than in the Berlinale photos, where I thought he looked tired and faintly stressed. Playing guitar to pretty Vietnamese air stewardesses is his natural milieu!

It seems as if the impromptu roll call suggests most people will be seeing it tonight or very soon after. So, do we need to employ the Tim Hoddleston thread?

T minus 2.5h. My poor husband has not yet made the connection between "Who's Tom Hiddleston?" and TNM. He loved Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (the tv version with Alec Guiness) and has been eagerly awaiting this new adaptation.

>>75 Bad dong was a running joke on last year's show - courtesy of Greg Davies.

Given TH's sometimes - all the time - immature sense of humor, I bet he's loving every minute of exchanging his dollars/euros (Christ, he's been around) for dongs.

I imagine 2012 twitter Tom might even have posted a few dong-related tweets.

My review - by the numbers:

Number of awesome opening sequences: 1
Number of slightly slow paced episodes: 1
Number of close-ups of TH's eye: 3,267 (really, what was up with that?)
Number of love scenes: 1 (and too short - what you see in the trailer is all there is!)
Number of times we all wanted to be Aure Atika: ALL the times
Number of blood splattered dogs: 1
Number of times TH worshipped the porcelain god: 1
Number of bum shots: 0 (we were promised the bum!)
Number of cliffhangers: one...in front of a snowy cliff!

Actors:
TH: A-
HL: B+
OC: A

80 Name: Anon : 2016-02-22 09:36 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>79 >>78

One shaving scene (sooo brief - all in the trailer!)
One post coital cuddle scene (heart eyes!)
One cooking breakfast barefoot scene.

And one slightly odd episode. Don't get me wrong, I didn't hate it, but the setup and the characterisation felt a bit clunky to me. Pine in particular did what he did solely it seemed to kick start the plot - I felt little if any sense of what kind of person he was and what might motivate him to do such a thing. And the female characters apart from Burr felt like ciphers. My husband snorted audibly when AA hove into view - [SPOILER] "she might as well have shown up to reception naked" quoth he. I have heard that the second episode is a lot better once the set up has been disposed of.

On a totally unrelated and slightly heartless note, Torrilla has a video of TH speaking Vietnamese at the press conference. It is so bad that the tv station has put subtitles on it translating his Vietnamese into Vietnamese!

>>91 For that reason, although I know what you mean about it being too slow, it also in some ways felt strangely rushed. One of the brilliant things about the 1970s/80s adaptations was that they were unafraid of doing "nothing" from a plot perspective and using vignettes to build character. They drew them all so brilliantly that by episode 2 you feel like you have known them for ages. Also Ian Richardson as Bill Haydon. That man invented the meaning of the words heart eyes. He was utterly gorgeous.

By the way in the opening scene I am pretty sure he is wearing his new watch and the shirt seen in the Australian chef's picture. I cannot imagine in a $35m drama they visited his home and asked him to contribute his own costumes. It looks like he has, as previously, tried to have off with costume items. They probably thought, "poor baby, he only has one shirt and one pair of trousers and that plastic watch. We'll pretend we didn't notice."

It's probably safe to say that if Tom takes his current squeeze to a tropical island, the end is nigh. Enjoy that good bye bang, that breakup sex because it's the last you'll be seeing of the Hiddles.

High Rise and the love scenes with Jed have Tom sexing up younger women. There's also the I Saw the Light love scenes which have younger women in them. But these are recent developments. Its been mostly actresses older than him that he's done sex scenes with.

Celebitchy did an Elizabeth Olsen post where they poke fun at her and Tom over her praise for Tom and his ISTL performance. We'll probably more posts like this when the ISTL promo picks up next month. Maybe not from proper media sources but from the Internet and fans and posters in general: http://www.celebitchy.com/472835/elizabeth_olsen_tom_hiddleston_nailed_his_portrayal_of_hank_williams/

131 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-25 22:45 ID:4rGwclC3

I feel like I want to do a THEO-themed drinking game for their ISTL interviews.

Take a shot when:

  1. EO wears black
  2. TH wears blue
  3. EO mentions wanting to do a West End play
  4. EO says she relates to Audrey because "Tom -- Hank, Hank didn't understand how lucky he was to have a woman like me, I mean Audrey."

Take two shots when:

  1. Hawaii is mentioned
  2. EO lets slip that TH is really good at laser tag

3: TH says that he's NEVER heard of IG
4. EO casually mentions she got a new purse in Vietnam - and it's roughly the size of her face

>>130 I know what you mean. Country isn't my thing but I was mildly interested in watching it for Tom. Now, I really could care less since all that talk about putting his heart and soul and hard work into Hank now just seems like hot air because it just looks like he spent that time wooing his engaged costar.

>>131 Don't forget about Tom whining about his work and privacy and discussing how he's learned a new skill set in evading headline grabbing quotes.

God I didn't even think about all the dissections that will happen during the ISTL promo. All that new fodder to analyze. The body language, the awkward phrasing, whether the press will be told to steer clear of the couple dating "rumors", will Elizabeth hold the director's hand again, SO MANY POSSIBILITIES!
Speaking of the director, was she seeing both him and Tom at the same time? Or was the hand holding and witness eye accounts of her snuggling up to the director during High Rise just to throw off the scent of her and Tom "nailing" each other?

Take three shots when:

  1. EO clings to TH's arm like a limpet.
  2. EO clings to Mark Abrahams' arm like a limpet.
  3. A journalist asks them a clear question about whether they are dating and EO responds with a direct answer like "define dating."
  4. TH serenades on his guitar someone who really doesn't want to be serenaded, like a deaf person, a Trappist monk or someone who hates country music.

>>133 I think the hand holding - and the 'they were so cozy at the HR screening' reports - smell of red herring. I saw someone on twitter swear that EO and MA were in Hawaii together but he wasn't pictured at the laser tag place. Okaaaayyyy, possible, I guess.

Or if you want to be really evil, EO tried to make TH jealous after he started distancing himself from her after pap night. She went to Hawaii in a last ditch effort but alas, Tom had left the building.

>>143 Yeah, she was at the ELLE style awards in UK two days ago and won the Actress of the Year award. I think it was for the Avengers. Then she jetted off to Milan for the Gucci fashion show.

>>146 >>147 According to the comments on the CB article it was not for her "style" but for her "acting" in Age of Ultron. I'd be embarrassed to accept if I were her but maybe she thinks "hey, why should Brie get all the plaudits for Room, it's my turn now."

It's possible she was in London with the same girlfriend she recently had a vacation with. That girl (Jade Olivia Thimgummy) was in London at the same time. I may be overreaching here (which has never happened on this board before, I know...) but Jade Olivia is rumoured to have just split with Tom Felton. Are they suddenly hanging out a lot because they are both single? EO barely features in her pics before about January.

151 Name: NewAnon : 2016-02-26 09:34 ID:Xfxv9xZA

Torrilla has some pics of him white water rafting, which I reproduce via tumblr because on my phone I only seem to be able to link to her main page: http://ancientfinnishgoddess.tumblr.com/post/140022749185/hes-all-wet-like-the-rest-of-us-my-goodness-oo

Two thoughts:

1) massive gun development since spindly "running into water shirtless" shot in TNM. Given how lean he is naturally this is v impressive.

2) should one's eyes happen to drift downwards in pic #4 one would see that despite being soaking wet and despite northern Vietnam being jolly cold at this time of year, bulges elsewhere on his person are eye-wateringly large.

153 Name: NewAnon : 2016-02-26 14:59 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>152 He looks like Pine again! Damn Thomas! Back at it again with those big guns and bulge! Yes that was my failed damn Daniel attempt.

Did a quick glance at Celebitchy last night and wow, quite a lot of posters still believe TH and EO never happened and that it's all innocent single kids fun. I thought maybe after the JVR IG pic fiasco, there might be some different tunes but guess not. I wonder if this is how they first show signs that even if Tom gets married with kids, they'll think it's all some gimmick like some of the really scary Cumberbatch fans do.

154 Name: Anon : 2016-02-26 15:35 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>153 I've certainly gone back and forth on this. That was mostly because EO said no at TIFF, and they were so awkward and miserable around one another that I tended to believe her notwithstanding any previous evidence to the contrary. However looking back now at everything that happened since July, and in particular the HI visit, there isn't much doubt in my mind, at least that they bumped uglies. When, for how long and with what degree of commitment is and will doubtless remain shrouded in mystery.

>>153 This is a phenomenon that has been a topic here a few times. I'm especially fascinated by it. Some fans will explain away every twitter sighting, every anon cup of tea, every tabloid article with a 'no picture, no proof.'

Then, when there is a pic, they will explain it away as well: just friends, photoshop, she's clinging on/he doesn't want her there, it's the end of the relationship, you can see it in his eyes.

Like I said, they're just trying to get to sleep at night, but the denial is creeping toward Cumberbatch territory, which is worrisome.

>>157 but what if we want to talk about what a work of art his body is? Because I mean I'll respect the hell out of that ;)))

>>154>>156 Yeah it's a little worrisome how far some of them go to explain that Tom is just friends with the lady or that she's the pushy one and he's too polite to say no. I always thought THEO was on but went underground because ISTL bombed and people were starting to wonder if some cheating happened and neither wanted that kind of attention. Especially if they weren't really serious about each other and just liked hooking up. I still think they were hooking up on and off ever since they started working together on ISTL. And maybe they still might be seeing each other. They'd been good about keeping it quiet until the tabloids started reading. But it doesn't seem very committed or serious so far which is why I say on and off hookup.

Even if they were serious, I think Tom seems pretty adamant about keeping his private life out of the limelight so he'd just ignore everything until he's ready to walk down the aisle with the lady.

159 Name: Anon : 2016-02-26 19:04 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>158 The "good at keeping it quiet" part is another mystery. The US Weekly article wasn't written as a result of pap pics of them, which made it look like a deliberate leak from his/her people (that plus her having given US Weekly an exclusive previously). On some level someone wanted it out there. Which quickly turned into a disaster from a PR and personal perspective. So back they went underground. Interesting that they managed to evade the paps altogether in HI despite it being a popular location for celeb beach pics. I can't believe he couldn't have done the same in London had he chosen.

160 Name: anonsy : 2016-02-26 19:21 ID:37hbqMD4

>>159 That initial article is likely the most accurate piece of information we were given - "they're hooking up, it's casual." I think that was really the extent of their relationship. Whether it's still happening is unknown, but based on the shift in tone of tabloid leaks and the amount of time they've spent apart over the last two months when they apparently had so much opportunity to get together, my money is on it being over.

161 Name: Anon : 2016-02-26 19:22 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>156 There is quite a range of views on CB. There are the ones who are up to the neck in de Nile. Then there is one in particular who always says primly "we don't know anything because he has never confirmed or denied THEREFORE ABSOLUTELY HE IS SINGLE," which is denial about his relationship status and also about one's own state of mind. There are plenty who recognise that the evidence was all circumstantial but think probably yes. And there is one person who said firmly that circumstantial evidence isn't enough to convict anyone, which she will learn is wrong when she is prosecuted for arson after being seen leaving a burning building carrying a can of petrol and a box of matches.

162 Name: Anon : 2016-02-26 19:28 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>160 Yes, accurate because she wrote it, cough cough. I don't actually think it was crazy fan speculation when we wondered on here if she was the more keen because the article and the second one probably came from "her people". Seems to be borne out by who did all the travelling to see whom.

I agree that it is probably over. Your table of "if they spend _______together it will mean something" and your guess that they wouldn't spend valentines, her birthday or his break together has been borne out.

163 Name: NewAnon : 2016-02-26 19:33 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>159 that leak did seem deliberate and could have been an attempt at using whatever they had going on to push the movie when they thought it had a shot at the Oscars. I'm also in awe how they stayed under the radar in Hawaii. Definitely makes me believe even more that London pap night was staged and EO overacted a little too much.

>>160 yeah it's always seemed more casual than serious. Probably why it was so easy for them to shift everything towards a breakup in the tabloids.

One thing is for sure though, all the THEO rumors and the cheating/ homewrecker speculation definitely caused some real entertainment. I never thought I'd see Tom's name in something like this because of how squeaky clean he always keeps his image. Whether or not it's true doesn't really matter but it was definitely interesting to see Tom's name come up like that.

164 Name: NewAnon : 2016-02-26 19:42 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>161 I saw those! And honestly that is some serious hardcore committed level of denials. I'd think after the Hawaii confirmation of her being there might change some point of views but no way. Lex or whatever she goes by should feel right at home there.

>>162 I do think EO was more eager to get something serious out of it with him. She certainly did most of the chasing. But what really sold me on it was the language in all those tabloids. All in favor of her and none for Tom. He was the chaser and whiner and griper and EO was always the one not wanting to commit and be free to concentrate on her career. So far, all she got written in her favor looks true for Tom more than her.

165 Name: anonsy : 2016-02-26 19:46 ID:37hbqMD4

>>163 I'm gonna be a conspiracy theorist for a moment and put this out there: what if the photo of THEO posted on Town Bike was planted? An "anonymous fan" happens to get a perfect photo of the two of them from behind, arms around each other, with EO's easily identifiable yellow bag from the week before hanging over her back. That pic was the warm up, and then boom, pap night. I think Town Bike is overreaching when she says Tom visits her blog, but any good PR in the age of social media is going to be aware of their client's fanbase, and I could easily see a savvy publicist using a blog like that to their advantage.

There was no hand holding on the red carpet or snogging photo, and EO did deny it. You don't have to be a crazy fan to say, after looking at this clusterfuck, maybe not.

What really tipped the balance for me, as I said above, was actual photographic confirmation that she was in HI. As an old cynic I thought it was unlikely that a single woman would travel all that way to hang out with a single man just to be friends.

>>165 Your theory might not be far off. Cosmetic companies sponsor trips to tropical islands for YouTube beauty bloggers so that they can peddle their products to their subscribers. For someone like Tom who has a big online presence, it would make sense for his publicist to tap into that power over traditional media.

With how carefully Tom hides his romances and how he hid Jane Arthy, it does make you wonder how a fan was able to catch that shot. If the THEO thing was their publicists trying to use their clients' hookups as a way to raise their profile and maybe get more focus on their movie, it definitely worked. Just not positively because the movie was DOA and most paid attention to the "sparks flew on set" and rememberered EO was still engaged at the time and began wondering if some cheating went on. Tom probably hit abort at that point because he definitely wants to keep that perfect gent image for now.

>>165 That for me is a bridge too far. Several people told the bike they had seen them together and she goaded them to take a pic "or it never happened", the usual. I reckon one of the lurkers at the cafe waited for them then followed them - it would be quite easy if he goes there regular as clockwork as is said.

But I also assumed that pap night arose out of that pic after it was posted in the DM. Not sure for what purpose exactly. To validate" the US Weekly story? One would have thought the existence of the pic was enough. As we have said so often none of it makes sense!!!!

169 Name: NewAnon : 2016-02-26 20:34 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>166 That's what I mean. In the beginning, it was too vague and then you had clear denials so it made sense. Even I was like yeah it's nothing. After Hawaii, I would think some would wonder just a little. But like that one poster said some other celebrities like Damien Lewis and Gwendolyn Christie visited as well and EO could've done the same and it's all innocent. If so that's one amazing coincidence especially so close to the timing of their romance rumors.

173 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-26 21:39 ID:wH/jx/xm

The thing with causal, on/off hook-ups is they're just that: casual and on/off. So, five-hour flight for a bang? Sure, why not. But a 14 hour flight - not feeling it, not even for birthday/Valentine's bang (even though they're the best bangs going!).

So, casual/hook-up THEO may still be alive - if not 'kicking.'

They may continue to 'see' each other when possible/preferable until either begins a new/serious relationship with someone else.

That having been said, Miss On-set Romance seems to have an MO: Boyd (worked together, got together), TH (worked together, got together). It could be the case that the romance bug bites on the set of this next movie (though probably not with Renner).

I nearly ran over Damian Lewis just before Christmas. He walked behind my car while I was reversing into a parking space, tsk, tsk. I should have hopped out and asked him about his holiday!

179 Name: NewAnon : 2016-02-26 23:20 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>172 No idea if it really happened. There were claims that you can see him in the go kart pics in the back but honestly, most of them also say it's not EO in the collage but that other Erin Moriarty actress. I would check those pics but I don't feel like it lol I'm sure if a pic came out from the Hawaii days with EO and TH kissing and cozy in the back, it'll be "a kiss is zero proof of romantic relationships. I kiss my dog on the mouth all the time, does this mean I'm sleeping with him? Of course not! Please stop jumping to conclusions!"

>>175>>176 Thank you! I'm not the only side eyeing how suddenly everyone was showing up to the Skull Island set. Maybe they all came with EO to persuade Tom that he should be with there and then they all did rendition of "Kiss The Girl" from The Little Mermaid.

181 Name: Anon : 2016-02-26 23:45 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>180 We didn't discuss them IIRC. I have no idea if they came out back in Oct/Nov. I never saw them and I never saw any reference to them in CB comments. I do recall an extensive comments section on tweets about EO shopping at the market etc.

182 Name: NewAnon : 2016-02-26 23:56 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>180 From what I recall, no one on CB or anywhere else mentioned all these sightings. It was just discussion about sightings of EO in Hawaii at the farmer's market and the ethics of sharing those social media accounts that saw her and Tom together. It didn't even come up when the JVR IG collage incident happened. No one's linking anything either and I don't know if my tired blind as a bat eyes can spot murky blurry figures in the back and figure out if it's Damien Lewis or Gwendolyn Christie or whoever else they're now claiming was on the SI set.

183 Name: NewAnon : 2016-02-27 00:15 ID:Xfxv9xZA

I just had a thought. What if all these posters are thinking that Marc Evan Jackson is Damien Lewis? He's the only one I see in the go kart pics that could resemble Damien Lewis otherwise I don't see DL at all. If so, I think we just solved the mystery. DL was never there and EO was definitely there.

I'm going to guess that the GC and DL sightings and about two thirds of the EO sightings were fake. I think once a sighting is over three months old it's pretty much irrelevant anyway.

185 Name: Anon : 2016-02-27 00:19 ID:qAvx5iXW

I can say for certain that the guy in pic 1 is not DL. Easy answer: way too short. And this I can say for certain because in addition to nearly running him over I have met him coming out of a shop in Belsize Park; he is a strapping 6 footer.

186 Name: NewAnon : 2016-02-27 00:22 ID:Xfxv9xZA

After this discovery of the supposed DL being Marc Evan Jackson instead, I'm now doubting there's a Samuel L Jackson interview out there where he talks about inviting Gwendoline Christie to the SI set.

Well, hey, whatever floats your boat, folks. Now, that video of Tom rafting. I believe we need more pics and videos like that. It's positively criminal that they're all having this much fun and saying Tom the Dance King yet we have no video. POSITIVELY CRIMINAL, I SAY!

Because, let's face it, it's all rubbish meant to somehow discount or diminish EO's presence in HI. Because, you know, if DL or GC showed up on set, that totally means THEO isn't a thing - reasonable argument!

>>201 IG burped up a video of some people in the mud caves (no TH, mind you), but the people in that vid said that the Kong crew were in the other mud caves.

Some people in the comments sections were saying that there was a 'naked option' in one of the mud caves. True or not, I think people were just feeding their naked, mud-covered TH fantasies (no shade thrown!).

205 Name: Anon, : 2016-02-27 15:13 ID:zh0XS7x6

>>203 He does mention trolls at the very beginning. I believe the 'work' thing, I believe he believes it. But, let's be honest, at the height of his twitter use, he was making THC, OLLA, TTDW, TPF (modern classic), doing Corio. - a five act Shakespeare play! Plenty of work was going on along with plenty of twitter.

It was after Corio that he seemed to start to shift to 'the work' tweets. And while you experienced a sane stage door, the general consensus was that it was, to quote Aristotle: a shit show of crazies (that's not really Aristotle).

I think that experience let him know that he needed to pull himself back and push the work out. Those loonies at the ticket office and stage door didn't behave as they did because of Shakespeare or Coriolanus the play, they were all about TH.

Am I fan-shaming? Is Miss Unrelated going to show up and lecture me?

>>204 I imagine with his new-found Twitter awareness TH is not about to get his cock out anywhere where there might be a member of the public with a camera phone. It is a nice fantasy though. "I'll rub it on her, she'll rub it on me, we'l both rub it on each other!" as Jack Lemmon says in Some Like It Hot!

208 Name: Anon : 2016-02-27 15:42 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>205 Has he ever been trolled as such? I doubt it. His problem is excessive and moronic expressions of undying love, plus a bit of stalking. It must get depressing to post a link to a song he has enjoyed and get 2000x "Tom I looooooove youuuuuuu hearteyeshearteyes." It must be nigh on impossible to say to the world "love me less obsessively please" hence I suppose he refers to "trolling".

I agree something must have happened in about end 2013 and Corio seems to be the most likely due to the timing and the fact that he had to be physically "available" - on stage in a tiny theatre and then having to leave the building into Covent Garden at some point. It is all very immediate, especially for people who find it hard to deal with the excitement of being in the same room as their idol for 3 hours. No wonder it pushed them over the edge. Whereas if you want to leave a film set discreetly you call a driver and someone collects you from inside the studio lot. Or security shoos everyone away.

PS if that nutter shows up here and tries to criticise you for "fan shaming" I shall not very politely remind her about the time she headed up a tumblr mob against some poor misguided lass who asked TH for a hug. They are all very quick to point the finger and quick to justify their own crazy behaviour. It is all inappropriate behaviour! I don't think it is wrong to criticise people for chasing him down the street to where he's parked his car, god help us.

209 Name: Anon : 2016-02-27 15:53 ID:qAvx5iXW

Here's another thought. Mid-2013 to mid 2014 also coincides with the JArthy time. Did she show him any of what was said about her online, I wonder? Even though (as pointed out on board 1 here) she didn't really get hate on Twitter, she certainly got a lot of attention and have from elsewhere (eg bicycle). You might think, as a male Twitter celeb, that if this kept up you would never have a girlfriend again as nobody would be able to endure it - unless they shut down every social media outlet they had. That may have contributed to him pulling back.

Oh, and another eggpic fan who is 'sad.' That he wants to focus on work rather than Twitter makes someone sad? How would I be able to pay my house mortgage, my bills, my car, etc. if I tweeted rather than working? Are all of the twitter omgomghearteyes fans young teen girls who live with parents and don't work? Sorry for the rant.

Most are teenagers or very early 20s or well into their 60s (I think there are at least 2 regulars at CB who are grandmas).

The Reeltours guy posted about BL and TH not taking part in filming because they were returning to LA for the Oscars - TH as a presenter, I guess. His 'source,' however, was a dodgy internet translation of a Vietnamese article.

I haven't seen TH at any pre-Oscar parties whereas other presenters have been snapped, so I'm thinking negative.

217 Name: Anon : 2016-02-28 20:26 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>216 That seems pretty unlikely I would have thought, unless AMC has got him in to publicise TNM. But the Oscars is so movie focussed and his movies last year have not made any great financial or critical impact.

What does Olly's/Vogt-Roberts IG say about everyone's movements?

He isn't on any list I have seen on Twitter as a presenter. In fact #Oscars2016 and #tomhiddleston searched together throws up one girl saying he is her perfect Oscars date and a few posts from October last year saying "no Oscar for ISTL now it's been put back." Sob.

Last year he was at Nuffield on Oscars night. I am sure if he wanted he could get an invitation. That kind of says to me he would prefer to attend only as a presenter or as a nominee. BAFTAS I think may be a bit different - local boy, involved in their fundraising dinners and last year was a presenter. He is also a bigger fish in a smaller pond, so he can probably always get a presenting gig at the BAFTAs if he wants one.

Some of the presenters have no business being there on talent, but they have big names or good agents, so they get the invite. Chris Evans? Kevin Hart? The Weeknd?!? This guy's name is a part of the week - and not even spelled correctly, but he presented!

OT: Brie looked great, but Saoirse Ronan's dress was out of this world! And her hair was perfect.

I think Ronan was meant to be Scarlet Witch in AOU but dropped out for the Brooklyn part. Maybe I'm getting that wrong.

Back on topic (kind of). I noticed no EO at the Oscars either. That did surprise me, since she is local, reasonably well known one would have thought, and would go to the opening of an envelope at this point. Back in the day when I was a student and watched the whole thing, they invited everyone with a pulse who had made a half decent movie in the last two years. Has something changed? Do they fill up the spaces with models now?

So, TNM question:

When Burr is in Pine's flat and they are talking about his father, she says: 'I heard they had to put his uniform back on before they buried him.' She does so with a half-smile.

What did she mean? It's gone completely over my head.

>>240 I think the ceremony itself is restricted to nominees, guests of nominees, cast, crew of nominated pictures and their guests. Then presenters are thrown in there (presumably with their guests). That's a guess, I genuinely have no idea.

However, the after parties are 'anyone who has a pulse' events. Some of those snapped at the Vanity Fair and Elton John parties were Z-list: Monica Lewinsky, anyone? Yeah.

So, I imagine that EO might have had an invite, went, but didn't get snapped at a party. I don't think she has the firepower to wrangle a presenter gig (whispers: I really don't think TH does either).

>>240 From what I know about the Oscars and the ceremony, anyone can go if they can buy the tickets. Same with the afterparties. They're expensive but if you can afford it, you'll get one. If you're a nobody, you get to sit in the nosebleed section at the ceremony and watch the awards. Usually other family members and other friends of presenters and nominees they bring along are sitting in the back along with other cast and crew mates from the nominated movies. I think whatever movie that gets nominated, everyone who worked on it gets invited as well. But yeah you can always purchase nosebleed section tix and afterparty tix as well. And if you're a celebrity, you can just get your PR team to get you in. So technically both EO and TH could've gone to the Oscars if they wanted. Though I think TH probably will only go if he's nominated or chosen as a presenter. But the BAFTAS or BFI, he goes all the time if he can, even if he's not nominated or not a presenter.

I love it when twitter vomits up these gems. Yes...psychic gossip!! And from a woman/man calling herself/himself 'The Seer.' It's got to be true!

'Actor Tom Hiddleston, a Brit. Is really on a career high, and there's a lot more good things to come from him. In the next few years. But on the personal side, things are a little darker. Damn that Hollywood curse.'

Oh, oh. The best part, of course, are the comments where people are worried about drug use and are encouraging TH to meditate. Also, someone mentioned the Illuminati! You couldn't make it up!

>>251 If you liked that then you need to check out thiddyastro on tumblr. I'm not going to give away too many spoilers but she echoes the same sentiment as psychic gossip. Great career, dark personal life. Currently, she and a friend of hers are predicting loads of health problems for Tom and some "bad company". You should give it a read. Definitely search out the love and astrology tag on there and search for solar arc. Her whole take on THEO is worth a read as well. There's also some gems on Tom and his past life where he was a woman who married for money and was miserable and that's why he's wary of relationships and marriage. Like you said, you couldn't make it up.

Loads of health problems? Brought on by his previous life as a coal miner? Is he going to get gout because he used to be a Dickens character? Christ.

Crap, is something going to happen to his dick?!? Nooooooo. I can't live in a world where TH doesn't have a dick to use when having sex up against a door.

There is also the small matter of a wedding a week later. Maybe I could shift the date, time and location of my hen party to Philly's Wizard World Convo - reasonable. And as for the $500 - I don't really need picture of my wedding; I've got a good memory. I could put the picture of TH and myself in the wedding book.

>>258 honestly I find her to be a strange mix. When she does the whole "well I have his entire chart right here in front of me so I know how he is", I find that a little disturbing. That might be part of her showmanship to garner more interest in astrology though. But one thing I do admire about her is that she doesn't condone bullying other fans nor does she encourage or enable TOBY level salacious gossip about Tom. She shuts that stuff down pretty fast. Like you said she's harmless but it does make for an entertaining read when she forecasts his future or about his relationships. Regardless of whether you're into astrology or not.

268 Name: anonsy : 2016-03-02 00:45 ID:V6C+Feoq

>>267 The one time I visited that blog I saw her respond to anons who presented logical arguments based in fact with answers that boiled down to "well according to his chart you're wrong," which is a major peeve of mine.

269 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-02 01:31 ID:Ep2jQcLc

I've given up on all boards except this one. The LSA thread, which was good for lurking, has gotten messy: one woman used a manip as proof that TH had a crush on CH. That was when I checked out.

I made the mistake of checking out the CB thread someone linked her. Instant regret. The first comment I read was from someone who was still convinced that the IG pic wasn't EO but the other blonde actress from the wrap party. Major side eye.

I wonder if the edit will be different for the UK and US movie (not trailer) versions. Ain't no way that's getting into a US trailer (I don't think UK either). However, it might not even make it into the movie itself.

The last time he did something like this, he was giving people piggyback rides and they were jumping into his arms. One would think that they have certain rules, but if the organizers are going to depend on common sense and decency to dictate behavior, they've not met some of TH's fans.

And, as we've seen recently (the Times Talks hugger and Miss Unrelated), it only take one bad apple....

Oh boy! That's a big boy! Actually for a guy his height, it seems pretty accurate. My captcha word is perfect for this moment. Fuck. Seriously. First word out of my mouth when I saw the gif. I wonder if this scene will make it to the DVD because like Anon. said above, I doubt that part of the scene is making it into the US version. I also don't think Tom would use a modesty sock for something like this. Sex scene or a facing his costar naked but something like this or Unrelated or Archipelago where it's too fast to tell much, he seems to just do it. Maybe because it's not a proper full frontal. That tease Hiddleston!

I assume in the editing suite they see it frame by frame and know exactly how much it reveals, but they probably then run it at normal speed and think, "yeah that's ok." I doubt this alone would get an 18 rating in the UK. If you blinked or were delving in your popcorn you'd miss it.

PS the teatime blog has it frame by frame and I am right - we have a swinging upwards situation. I somehow can't bear to link to it or reblog it. At this level of detail/obsession/perving it starts to feel very weird.

>>309 A lot of American girls I met at college had been told that it was rilly, rilly hard to keep an uncut one clean, and were surprised to learn that they have fewer nooks and crannies than our own ladyparts, which nobody thinks are a bother to wash.

>>311 That guy and his wife are an interesting corner of the fandom. D/s and Hiddleston obsession. Would he really remember clearly the willy of a man he must have met 15 years ago?

313 Name: qaz : 2016-03-04 08:54 ID:0nSbDl0M

It seems that I decided to check up on this board at interesting times in TH's fandom, lol. Hi, guys! It's been a while.

>>312 Unless it's a very impressive willy :) Or the guy was very interested in TH's willy at the time - which is nothing wrong with that! But even if he does remember, I'm sort of side-eyeing him for enjoying so much his 15 min in this tiny corner of the Internet known as TH's fandom.

On a different note, I remembered recently that TNM was supposed to air and watched the 1st episode so far, and though it was rather good! Better than Bond, still a bit too campy for my tastes, but really not bad! TBH, lately I am having trouble mustering up any enthusiasm re: TH, whether he's fighting bad guys, making breakfasts, or even swinging his naked willy (therefore my absence) but I think I'm still going to keep watching!

>>311 I'm not sure if I believe the guy. Not about Tom being uncut but about him knowing Tom in college. I'm pretty positive Tom is uncut, based simply on cultural norms of UK. But not sure I believe the guy about going to school with TH. It's possible he might have but I'm always wary of people who pop up on tumblr with claims of having some sort of personal connection with Tom. Or any famous celebrity for that matter tbh.

>>314 England's a small place and the prevalence of Old Etonians and Oxbridge grads makes it feel smaller if you move in those circles. For example: there is someone down the hall at work who is an OE who is about the same age. It's such a small school that they undoubtedly knew each other and he probably knows and is in touch with people who are his close friends.

But I agree that it seems a coincidence that someone who just happens to be married to the person who runs a very well known Hiddleston tumblr blog suddenly pops up and says this.

318 Name: Anon : 2016-03-04 12:14 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>317 Yes, welcome back! Just seen your post in my coffee break when I had a bit of time to peruse the board properly as opposed to looking at the last post only. I hope that a peek at Liddle Hiddles revives your esteem for the great man!!!

319 Name: qaz : 2016-03-04 14:31 ID:0nSbDl0M

>>317 And I've missed you guys!

>>318 Same here, I had a free moment, read a few of the last posts and was back to my work stuff again.

Hey, don't get me wrong, I still like the great man and still think he's talented and handsome! It's only that I don't get so excited about him for some reason. (Well ok, I know the reason, but it's irrelevant to the topic and real life related. It's not him, it's me!)

But still, that fleeting peek? He should really try harder to lure back such a valuable fan as myself :) Until then, I'm counting on HR to get me back on the Hiddles-wagon.

Anyway, I've been catching up on the posts, and although I'm clearly late to the party, but
>>263 I don't know what it is, but Anon, I'm laughing at that image so hard :D Literally to tears, for about 20 minutes now :D
>>261 I hear you, Anon., I mean it totally wasn't weird that at some point I considered photoshopping him into all my photos, wedding included. Granted, he would have looked awkward in them, being shirtless and all, but it wasn't like I was after the plausible photographic composition anyway.

On a (more or less) serious note - they are charging $500??? No way, not even at the peak of my infatuation with him. Plus, I agree - super awkward.

Yeah, so many choices.. But I doubt he knows any of them by (nick)names, so I think I'll just brighten his day by confessing I came all the way from LT to ask him about that mole he has and what influence it had on his acting career. After all, I'm all about his art nowadays!

Meanwhile, I checked again for any news about HR screening in LT and there are still none. We have this spring film festival and I had a tiny hope that maybe it would be in the programme, but nothing so far. I'm starting to doubt that I'll get a chance to see it on the big screen at all :(

When the door sex tweets appeared, I refused to believe that two minutes was all the puff Liddle Hiddles had in him - remember?

>>328 I saw today on Tumblr some fan who bought a ticket saying that it's a photo op with TH + Chris Hemsworth, presumably together? I don't know how those things work. So at least he'll probably get to share possible awkward moments with his 'brother from another mother'.

I keep forgetting Sian! When Anon suggested, I thought to myself that I don't look like any of his ex-GFs at all, but I was humouring myself for a moment that if I tried really hard, maybe I could pass for a less glamorous Kat Dennings (like A LOT less glamorous). But now I realise with horror that I would probably be Sian!

>>330 I glazed over a bit before I got to that para first time around. On rereading I see what you mean. Rather a more nuanced view on diversity and the arts (yawn - why is he expected to have the answers to this?). He was crucified in CB over the Guardian interview for living in his ivory tower (I paraphrase) but this interview was done at more or less the same time and probably not in "response" to criticisms of the Guardian piece. It suggests as we remarked at the time that the fault lay in the interviewer - or how she edited his response.

335 Name: Anon : 2016-03-04 23:51 ID:qAvx5iXW

After Tom's mention of UKIP in the Sight & Sound interview I read a thousand Wikipedia articles on UK politics but I still feel a little lost. Can someone give an American a brief explanation of the major political parties?

343 Name: Anon : 2016-03-05 07:47 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>342 Ok I will try. No guarantee that other Brits on here will quite agree but here goes.

UKIP - usually accepted to be most far right party. Wants end to participation in EU, end to immigration (often thought to be appealing to covertly or openly racist views though they deny this), end to Human Rights Act, repeal of equal rights legislation for women, POC, disabled etc, support for broadening gun laws. Large popular support when counted nationwide but one MP due to vagaries of political system (votes split across hundreds of MP elections so almost no wins. I mention them first but they are regarded as a marginal party - extreme views, some grassroots support (like DT but much less successful in the event).

Conservative - very broadly equivalent to Republican. But a lot less right wing. For example: No support for repealing abortion laws. No support for broadening gun laws and indeed legislated against handgun ownership in the 80s. Supports and brought in legislation for gay marriage in last Parliament.

Labour - very broadly equivalent to Democratic Party. But a lot more left wing eg some want to end nuclear deterrent and in the 70s there was 99% tax for highest earners. Bernie Saunders would be moderate in the Labour Party. New leader after a fairly crushing defeat in the last election when it was widely predicted they would win. He is called Jeremy Corbyn - little political experience as a front bencher (ie holding a shadow cabinet post). Another expression of grassroots discontent, from the other end of the policitcal spectrum - he is not widely supported by other Labour MPs.

Liberal Democrats - hard to place. Theoretically liberals would be between labour and conservative historically. The party originated in the 19th century as an alternative to Tories (conservative) and Whig (not equivalent to labour but more left wing). Recently it tried to position itself to the left of Labour. Was decimated in the last election and now only has 9 MPs. Ironically UKIP got more votes I think.

Broadly speaking we have a similar structure but it is all shifted to the left.We had a couple of Communist MPs during WW2. There is a great Monty Python sketch explaining the US system to the British whic says "The Republican Party: this is equivalent to the Conservative Party. The Democratic Party: this is equivalent to the Conservative Party."

344 Name: Anon : 2016-03-05 08:10 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>342 PS we vote for our MPs as you vote for egg senators - you vote for one candidate for that state (or constituency over here) and your vote only counts for that particular race. We call it first past the post. There is no transferable vote and it doesn't go to a national total of who got most overall. The difference is there is no separate race for PM - the post is filled by the party that gets most MPs. When we talk about a hung Parliament we mean that there aren't enough of one party's MPs to win a vote. We don't get a democrat President, a Republican Congress situation.

Some people have complained that his means parties with a lot of votes nationally (chiefly the Lib Dems) lose out on this system. The significant upside to my mind is that parties like UKIP don't get many seats. There are disadvantages with both systems.

Bringing this back on topic, TH lurves Corbyn, I think. Cf this Guardian interview (though he refuses to say how he votes). http://www.theguardian.com/film/2015/oct/08/tom-hiddleston-interview-crimson-peak

PS this is one of my favourite interviews because I think it gives a sense of what he is like as a person. For example that he smokes - but like the Queen, is never photographed doing so. That said a lot to me about how he seeks to control his image.

347 Name: Anonon : 2016-03-05 12:41 ID:8k+MrmAO

Longtime lurker here. While this political discourse is fascinating, I feel the need to redress the balance with some smut. This image was miraculously overlooked in the excitement of the blurry flash of Little Hiddles. Thanks to a tight climbing harness, Little Hiddles is rather prominent and appears to be of a short and fat nature, generously padded by unfeasibly large balls. A big shout out to the climbing harness for leaving nothing to the imagination and a pang of jealousy towards the lucky person who strapped him in.

Forget TH's balls, I want to hear the story about the creepy old man! TH will probably become a creepy old man at some point; he's not shy with his reconnoitering of females, and once a person has that, it's only a matter of age before he hits creepy old man level.

360 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-05 16:34 ID:NZrQCpAh

>>346 I wonder if TH has ever really tried to hide any of his 'true self' - ugh, I hate phrases like that - or if we, the general public, just haven't seen it because of editorial choices (not TH choices). If he didn't want us to know about his smoking, he wouldn't have mentioned it in this interview. And we only have it because the author decided to put it in the piece. TH might have smoked his way through every single print interview since year dot, but journalists, editors, etc. haven't mentioned it - and not necessarily because he hasn't told them not to mention it.

When I saw this photo from the ES awards, I realized he was a smoker: everyone's outside in the very cold weather (classic enforced outside smoke break), HMc has got a cig, the people behind them have got cigs. TH has very likely got one in his right hand - he isn't hiding it and doesn't seem bothered to have a pic being taken of him - but the photographer has either shot it without TH's cig or made that edit afterwards. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B5JlrcLIQAAiSM2.jpg
And since JA and EO are of the chimney variety, it seemed logical that he would be as well; non-smokers so rarely take up with smokers.

As for his Corbyn love - that wouldn't surprise me. I would imagine that he might be an economic conservative and social liberal. His production company - which doesn't produce anything as yet - may be a little dance he's having with HMRC.
But he certainly talks the talk of a liberal in regards to social issues. He probably also loves Corbyn because they have the same number of non-suit clothing items.

A string of new ISTL pics on twitter and IG from the film's site.

http://sonyclassics.com/isawthelight/

I know I'm in the very small minority, but I'm looking forward to it. By all accounts, it's going to be a mess of a plot, and I'll probably be thinking are they, aren't they? as I watch the two leads interact, but if I made it through OLLA - where NOTHING happened by the way and there was pretty dubious dialogue - and still appreciate TH's performance, I can make it through this.

362 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-03-05 17:26 ID:+hqaymin

>>360 I think that is the only photo I have ever seen where he might have been smoking. It was taken during ISTL so it makes sense if he was smoking a lot for filming and then struggling to give up, as he said in the interview. He has been depicted many times in cafes and on the street by fans and occasionally paps and I have never seen him smoking. That's what I mean about being careful. Someone smoking is order mentioned by journos as "local colour" so I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't smoke during interviews. Saying you smoked a bit for a role and have tried to give up feels a bit different. I think it's a fib FWIW and that he has smoked on and off throughout his adult life - he has the classic smokers' lines between the eyes and from the nose to the mouth.

364 Name: Anon : 2016-03-05 19:12 ID:JNU6fL1n

>>360 As to his politics - I have long wondered whether he votes with his wallet. The proposals for mansion tax, had Labour been elected, would have cost him about £40k a year if Zoopla's valuation of his home is correct. And that's before any other tax increases. There are plenty of Tories who are socially liberal and economically conservative (low tax, low regulation, lots of incentives to grow business) - one stereotype, of whom I have met plenty, is the gay London Tory. Socially liberal with stacks of cash.

As for the business, yes that is a form of legal tax avoidance. They way it works is this: offer your services as actor as an employee through your company. Company pays you as sole shareholder a dividend on which you pay income tax. If you have a good year you may choose to pay only part of your earnings/the company's profit as dividend and leave the rest in your company, where you pay corporation tax but at a lower rate than personal income tax. If you have a lean year coming you drip out a dividend that year, smoothing your income and potentially keeping yourself in a lower tax band both years.

This is how almost all actors offer their services. It isn't bent but it is a bit rich when many of them are railing at the evils of tax avoidance by Starbucks (eg Amanda Abigdon of Sherlock fame - who not only ran her affairs through a company but also tried to bankrupt herself to avoid paying a large tax bill until she got rumbled by the press).

>>347 I'm fascinated by the male anatomy. How does one even walk with something dangling there, especially when it's as significant in size as Tom's? Doesn't it get in the way? When stowing it down one pant leg or the other, does it feel lopsided? The one time I asked a man these questions he just sort of shrugged and looked at me like I was crazy. Maybe they just don't really notice since they've always had to deal with it?

368 Name: Anon : 2016-03-06 23:22 ID:+hqaymin

>>367 And it sometimes moves without you wanting it to.

I just asked my husband about the lopsided down one leg thing. He says: of course it feels lopsided. But it is only an issue if you wear very tight trousers. Otherwise (and I quote) the balls sit one either side of the seam. I am told that it is monstrously uncomfortable to wear tight trousers if you are well hung. This probably explains why John Hamm almost always wears slacks.

>>361 I'm trying to muster enthusiasm for ISTL. If looking for signs of chemistry between THEO will help me pay attention, then so be it. Otherwise, I'm just in it to see his performance and wonder at what point he realized that the direction and editing was a clunker.

>>368 You'd think that pushing them together with briefs or boxer briefs while wearing loose slacks would help but I guess any restraint is uncomfortable at that (?!) size. Kind of like we large-busted ladies and bras - worse if ill-fitting. Then if they're in one tight area, they get sweaty and wwwww… schwety balls, man.

>>407>>411 I don't like his southern accent either. It actually takes that sexy edge from his voice that he has in British and normal American accent. What really makes me cringe is his live singing. The edited singing in the movie is not bad but when he did Wheatland and now in some of these behind the scene rehearsing clips, he doesn't sound good at all. His voice breaks when he hits the high notes.

I couldn't add in my comments then but a few days ago you guys discussed how Tom couldn't see how clunktastic ISTL would be and thought he could save it. While ISTL was filming, one of the extras from ISTL talked on her blog about her experience and one the things she mentioned was how much Tom and the director went back and forth about how to shoot the scene and how much Tom kept reshooting the scene over and over again and finally when Marc put his foot down, Tom said "you're the boss" sarcastically and that he didn't seem happy at all. I think it was the Opry scene they were shooting with the way the girl described it. Does anyone else remember this? Lot of people read that and said it showed Tom had control and perfection issues but now I think it might have been more that attitude of it's not a good film but I can save it if I push hard enough.

422 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-09 23:26 ID:x72+GDoH

>>421 MA himself talked about how TH would do 100 takes if a director let him, while he, MA, was more of a 2-3 take sort of guy. I think MA couched it in terms of 'passion' but don't quote me on that.

It might have been control issues or he might have had his Superman underwear on in an attempt to save the film. However, I wonder if this is less TH's control/perfection/save the day issues and more his confidence as a performer working with a director closer to his own level of fame and experience.

He probably wasn't going to be arguing with Spielberg, Allen or Sir Ken. But MA, sure he's a long-time producer, but his writing and directing experience was near-to-nil at this point.

423 Name: Anon : 2016-03-09 23:27 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>421 I do remember something of this. Doing lots of takes and being a touch pettish when told "no."

I reckon loads of actors believe that their genius will transform a shitty script. Especially if they see a part that has "Oscar" written all over it. He was kind of right in that everyone has praised his acting in that role. I personally would have been very cautious especially since biopics of music figures are notoriously hard, and Walk the Line set the bar so high. Joaquín Phoenix can actually sing. And (perhaps a controversial view) Johnny Cash was a better songwriter.

>>424 It's not a good look at all. But the skinny doesn't bother me as much as that hair. The greasy slicked to his head. I just hate that hair on him. I definitely won't be going out of my way to watch ISTL. I think his talents could have been used and recognized much better if he'd just waited a little bit. And he probably could have done without the THEO gossip lol Last year would have been very different for him if he'd skipped out on ISTL.

>>425 Really? lol if singing was his weak spot, TH certainly didn't let that hold him back. Wheatland and the bts of ISTL show Tom can't sing. He just doesn't have the voice for it.

He reminds me of my tone deaf friend who just LOVES singing. So much so that she took up singing lessons and announced she was becoming a professional singer. While her voice certainly improved, it was mostly just louder and my ears still bleed. We all love her regardless and her enthusiasm is contagious. Like Germans and the war, we never mention the deaf tone

>>429 Is she properly tone deaf? I find truly tone deaf people so fascinating when they sing. The way they can't pick up and maintain notes amazes me.

My buttocks clinch when TH mentions wanting to do a musical. He's said a few times that he'd like to do Guys and Dolls - ummm, no. I love the guy, as much as is reasonable for a fan, but I only ever invested six minutes in TPF - and to this day I want those six minutes back. And the bad return on that investment was all about TH's singing.

Really interesting Q&A too, Ben Wheatley brilliant as ever, and it was mercifully free of embarrassing "tell me about Tom's underpants" type questions. Second time I've seen the film and it definitely bears repeated viewing.

>>438 I really respect BW for putting the hours in to promote his film - he's been at q&a all over the UK. And they're trying to do innovative and interesting things to promote it. Seems like it is working as recent reviews are better than a couple I saw in October which described it as uneven.

I almost feel they are better off without Tom and the media circus he brings.

440 Name: N8Anon : 2016-03-10 09:29 ID:m0Zddaoc

>>439 I know what you mean. One of the interesting things he mentioned last night was that the scheduling of the movie, following it's premieres on the festival circuit last autumn, was pushed back to now, so that it wasn't competing with Bond Spectre and Deadpool etc. He said that at first he was pissed off about the long gap, but it has actually been a positive thing as the film has gained traction and support through building word of mouth based on personal reviews, social media, festival reviews etc.

441 Name: Anon : 2016-03-10 09:50 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>440 It's also benefitted from not being lost in the noise of everything TH was promoting last autumn. And it helps that TH is currently all over the tv in a well-received series. I am glad it worked out well for them.

The publicists for ISTL could learn a thing or two about word of mouth. I still think they killed it off in part by telling everyone how amazing TH's "turn" as Hank was, even when it was still filming. Better to have let people discover it for themselves.

442 Name: N8Anon : 2016-03-10 10:11 ID:m0Zddaoc

>>479 >>480 I saw this as I was heading to the movie (I love that rag and its raginess!).

I dismissed it as another cobbled together piece because it has so many factual mistakes: JA at Wimb. last year? Spends most of his time in LA? Missed bf's wedding for audition (I thought he was filming).

And I didn't think it was ISTL promo because it seems to shoot itself in the foot in that respect: if anyone gets too close, they're gone...EO may be close, but on the red carpet they're all business. ???? None of that makes me want to see ISTL...and I want to see ISTL!

It's not even promo for TH - he's not painted in the best light.

(Fun side note, the first time I tried to copy and paste the above quote I accidentally copied and pasted the image. Since you can't paste images on this website, it pasted the image title instead, which is apparently "couple having sex against a wall on TV show" in case anyone was wondering.)

484 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-03-12 06:07 ID:89pEWkso

>>482 I do see your point Anon.

My POV: since we're getting close to the release of ISTL, any mention of both TH and EO in the same article is a promo of the movie, be it positive or negative in this case, thus 'PR stink.'

>>479 Wonder who the "friend" was or if it was totally manufactured - that stuff I haven't read before. Agree the rest of the article was a hash of other articles thrown together and not got quite right. It reads like the journalist knows someone from Eton or Cambridge who knows him a bit and has cobbled something together to go around the three or four quotes they were prepared to give him.

US folks: the Telegraph is a right wing broadsheet national newspaper, read by old people and by my husband, who is beside himself with laughter. "How is this news? Haven't they seen High Rise?"

490 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-12 18:59 ID:Ep2jQcLc

>>489 Anon, given it is likely for this trend to continue (this isn't going to be our last arsegate), you should know that it's spelled (spelt) booty. It might be boouty in your parts, or boote in the French. ;)

My favorite quote was 'naked, wobbling buttocks.' The gifs all but make themselves. Still, tumblr will make plenty.

It does look tiny, but suitably fleshy.

491 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-12 19:06 ID:Ep2jQcLc

>>487 At some point, his ass will become so overexposed (pun!) that we'll just shrug our shoulders when it appears and get on with life rather than devote so many internet megabytes to it!

The opposite might happen, however. In which case, he's setting a dangerous precedent. Soon we will just expect ass in every film. 'Where was the ass?' we'll ask if it doesn't show up. 'I didn't pay $15 to not see TH's ass!'

PS I like the phrase butt-butt!

492 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-03-12 21:34 ID:o+Sd0Zmu

>>491 I like butt-butt. 'Naked, wobbling buttocks sounds like the description of an old man. So sick for seeing it now, though. And he's nowhere near as overexposed as Cumberbatch.

493 Name: Anon : 2016-03-12 22:18 ID:C1I+SOXz

>>490 But "booty" and "botty" connote two very different things, no? Well, they both refer to the same part of the body, but I think one refers to one's bum as a "booty" when it is exposed in a sassy and sexy manner. Whereas a "botty" is an oo-er missus Carry-On type of exposure. The marvellous description of "wobbling buttocks" and the breathless references to a totally non-X rated letterbox shaped backside flash struck me as having more botty-like qualities...PS the bum in CP was definitely a booty (or it thought it was, cf attempt at Beyoncé-esque gyrations).

[prepares to be shot down on etymological grounds]

I prefer buttbuttgate if I'm honest, though.

494 Name: Anon : 2016-03-12 22:44 ID:+hqaymin

>>493 That could be! I'm not au fait on ass synonyms/slang. Nor on Carry-On qualifiers! I'm going to trust you and start spelling it both ways.

>>494 I saw that! I almost added it to one of my reviews under 'Number of times TH's bottom was hungry and helped itself to a meal of trousers' but I felt it was too long!

TH showed up in the background of a photo on IG. It was labeled as a 'pool party' but - not to recent type - he is neither shirtless nor bottomless. But he is looking fairly big up top. He's wearing a white tee - of course - and his grey blazer and his arms and chest look massive...for TH.

Shirt better come off in Kong or I'm going to be disappointed.

That poor jacket is weeping at the seams.

As much as I love the bulkier TH seen so far in TNM, I draw the line at the tiny head syndrome (head disproportionately small compared to torso) which is always accompanied by a penguin walk due to arms that can no longer hit the sides.

Re: asking directors for another take, yes, he did do that with Spielberg, and with Del Toro (reported by a journalist on a set visit), and with Alan Taylor (mentioned on the commentary). It seems to be his actual working technique - when he was talking about working with Spielberg he said he does it because once the director has a take he is happy with he understands what they want and feels like he can give an even better performance with one more take.

It must have driven people slightly crazy on Crimson Peak, because Del Toro is known for doing lots and lots of takes - 40 or 50, sometimes. Or maybe once you'd done that many 'can we just do one more?' doesn't seem like such a big deal.

I guess MA just didn't quite get his working method.

I don't blame Corky. I have wanted to do that since I first saw the Cannes pictures.

>>520 Are you suggesting we get a glimpse of LH (as I affectionally call him) in that scene? I think that might be ED's underwear/dress...but I shall investigate...for science!

Beyond that - let's be honest - that episode was all about LH. I don't think these episodes have titles, but if they did, this one would be 'The Exciting Adventures of Liddle Hiddles.'

So, some serious questions:

  1. Do we think LH was sock-sheathed in both the restaurant and wall scene?
  2. Could we somehow calculate LH's size by figuring out THol's glove size?
  3. Do we think LH enjoyed the restaurant or wall scene more? Because, sure the wall scene involved a tall blonde and breasts, but, come on, Tom Hollander - now that was passion.
  4. Am I the only one who feels like her lady parts have been punched - in a nice way - every time TH's goes 'Shhh, shhh' in a scene?

And, yes, this is just a ploy on my part to continue talking about his junk. I'm that downmarket.

>>521

I don't know!!! I have watched the gif a few (OK, 85) times for science and I can't make it out. It is sooooo frustrating, like the helicopter willy in the slumber party video. I think he is wearing a pouch - it looks like a pouch shape, all a bit neatly triangular. Also it is the BBC - I know they had a naked man in War and Peace recently but not in a sexual context. But then I think of HR and I wonder if he freeballs it in every nekkid scene. Help meeeeeee.

My captcha was 'bone.' It knows.

>>522 'Help meeeeeee.' Oh, oh. The restaurant/wall scenes might have come too close on the heels of HR for Anon. Girl is fragile!

I've watched it again via the iplayer. I can't tell if it's her flesh-colored dress, his shirt or a flesh-colored pouch. I did, however, notice his hesitant left hand: Iz is touching boob, but maybe Iz shouldn't be, Iz just touch side, maybe a little squeeze. And what seemed to be realllly loose underwear that he had on. They must have needed them to slip down easily because they were like bloomers!

>>524 Ouch to anything sticky, even with manscaping. I would think elastic at the base. As they're sometimes called 'cock socks' a sock like top would seem likely. Maybe a band and ties as in sweatpants?

526 Name: Anon : 2016-03-14 16:00 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>525 The capcha always knows!

Are we looking at the same thing? On the gif I linked to there is a dark triangular patch which looks to be too low down and too far over to the right to be anything she is wearing.

As for touching boob, didn't he actually bend down to suck at one point?!!!

>>521 I don't think that's Little Hiddles. Cock socks are always flesh toned, the whole point is to remain invisible, it looks the same color as the jacket. There appears to be a lot of fabric getting in the way. Damn those hideous whispy asymmetrical dresses.

Here's a fun run- down of sex scenes. I haven't witnessed them but can account for weird flesh toned getups. If glueing is needed they do their own. Makeup artists do often have to cover bum pimples and correct tan lines so I'd say if you want a career where you can get up close and personal with stars, choose makeup or wardrobe. In stills photography guys also pad their genitals with white bread (minus the crust).

Our boy - and his ass - were the open post on dlisted!

I'll keep it PG-13 with this quote, but head over for Michael K's take on straight sex and advice for TH! http://dlisted.com/2016/03/14/open-post-hosted-by-tom-hiddlestons-nalgas/#more-209319

'Tom Hiddleston stars in a BBC miniseries called The Night Manager (it will make its way to the US in April), and on last night’s episode (SPOILER ALERT), his tiny Stottie cake butt cheeks were exposed as he humped Elizabeth Debicki against a wall. The Daily Mail posted the screen shot of Tom’s little peach coming out to play and tweets from people who wanted to smear marmalade on those buns and eat ’em up.'

>>533 I saw that the other day when I watched it again...for science, but I don't think that's excitement. If you look at him getting out of the elevator when he's going to meet the IEA group, it looks about the same. This episode really was bulge-tastic.

And it might be LH or might be his massive bollocks. Hard to tell.

We've completely objectified him over the past few days, haven't we? A feminist might be fuming were we talking like this about a woman, but his feminist ass realizes that we have about 10,000 years of social imbalance to rectify, so it's fine.

536 Name: Anon : 2016-03-15 13:12 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>535 I jest. I think that's just it lying there because there's nowhere else for it to go in those tight trousers.

As for the objectification: I think I said a while back that I felt like a man watching TNM, in that I know that in every episode a fit person of the opposite sex will get his kit off for few/no reasons connected to the plot. Suzanne Bier has been shameless about using his body for the tv equivalent of clickbait so I have no compunction about objectification! For example the showering under the waterfall scene - why? (and also if you are going to use his bum for ratings please have the courage of your convictions and get a bit closer).

537 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-15 13:12 ID:aMwiyK9i

>>534 Typical of some of these online 'magazines.' More laughable is the guy has got two comments pointing out his mistake and it still isn't fixed.

I doubt he had an actual face to face with TH, so going by some of those ISTL stills, it's not an unreasonable mistake!

538 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-15 13:30 ID:aMwiyK9i

>>536 Oh, I didn't think you were serious, but I wanted to point out that LH should get an IMBd credit for his multiple appearances and 'stunt work' in this episode. He was the real star - I'm looking at you, Stotti cake buttocks.

Watching that scene again...for science...it has some dodgy editing. It's a weird mix of a fight, love and breakdown scene. It looks like it was a challenge to film because they didn't piece it together well.

I know in the still pics you can only see what looks like a teeny tiny bum, but look at gif 1 of this set: he has a big butt. And as the Telegraph journalist remarked, it wobbles. Not the flat runner's bum one might expect him to have. And not a rock hard squat-created bum either.

This is the reason I love the DM. How ridiculous is this!?! I would make a list of my favorite/most ridiculous parts, but I'd just end up quoting the whole article. If I had to makes Sophie's choice: that he's copying Bond by wearing a linen jacket to breakfast. Or that he has new blonde highlights. Or...see, I can't pick just one!

Now for the usual question...is this Luke? Is TH pushing hard for Bond? The DM has already told us about his ambition. ;)

Also: bless his little bedhead hair.

OT: have we already started to tear down BL? Girl's got enough to think about without the DM making a big deal about her in a hoody. She's got to get this stinker in the can and start worrying about how to avoid the Oscar curse.

Speaking of good timings, that one tumblr user whose husband said he went to college with Tom is now talking about how many girls Tom used to bang in college. Which is well and fine (Tom's active sex life I mean) and all these claims are certainly making this tumblr couple famous among the fandom who are clamoring and asking for "what's his type spill the tea".

557 Name: Anon : 2016-03-16 09:21 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>553 >>554 As for this lot.....

She is bonkers. Someone wrote a comment about a TH dom manip saying they preferred to think of him being more gentlemanly, and she had a (very lengthy) meltdown about how dear G was her dom and was a perfect gentleman, how they were "hating on" the D/s lifestyle etc etc etc.

As for him....He may well have been to Cambridge (though cf grammar in latest post eg "THAN there is the others". Hum). He might well have come across TH as Cambridge isn't a huge university and the college system means that if you play rugby or row or whatever you compete against all the other colleges and meet a lot of people. If he played rugby and was in the same year he probably did meet him - and probably did shower with him(!!). But knowing someone hat way and knowing how much sex he gets - no way. If they were at the same college then yes he might have a fair idea. Some take only 100 students a year, and you live in college accommodation for at least 2 years usually, so you do know everyone's business quite well.

What makes me side eye the whole thing is that she has been running her mouth on her blog for a long time about all things TH, and mysteriously she has managed not to reveal these amazing facts thus far. The cut/uncut debate has been ongoing for ages and she must have known all along he met TH and in what circs. So she must know he knew the answer (put it this way, I'd have asked). But she has only weighed in now...had she said 2 years ago in a non trolly way, oh BTW my husband played sports with him at college and they showered together and no he's not, that would have shut the debate down then, I'd have thought. But no, we get the big reveal now.

562 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-16 15:32 ID:GOfiwiEc

>>552 >>553 >>557 What a bunch of skeptics you lot are...yeah, I'm in total agreement. For all the reasons that have been mentioned and for the fact that these two blogs scream out for attention. I'm not going to doubt all the things that headline in his archive page: the D/s relationship, their recent loss of a premature child, her being tested for MS, unfairly missing out on a shelter kitten. I'm going to continue on in an existence where people don't make up those type of events for any reason. But sharing them on a social media blog isn't fully about 'connecting with people' or 'healing' - it's about garnering attention (that's how social media works). And while they may be looking for comfort from an unknown audience, or sympathy or empathy - these are all secondary to what anyone using a social media platform wants: attention.

So, I'm not going to doubt that he met TH, played rugby, knows x,y,z about him. But sharing - and perhaps embellishing x,y,z for attention - that earns my side-eye alongside anonsy's.

And to second Anon, why keep this info secret for all these years when they have kept little else secret?

(I may on may not be in a bit bitchy mood these days)

Anon., I'm very excited for you about that Q&A!

Hm, something tells me I'm going to watch some more of TNM today because I've still seen only the 1st episode.

566 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-16 16:53 ID:GOfiwiEc

>>564 Yep. I was keeping it secret, but now I can reveal it to everyone. And, yes, he told me I should buy a big purse when we started our secret relationship; he said I might need it - don't know why?

And, we are the perfect couple because, like that woman on This Morning, I have two vaginas. It's a muracle (American pronunciation) that we found each other. And now we're going to run two blogs about our crazy sex life since it's technically an orgy every time we have sex because of the numbers of genitalia involved.

OT: THAT AMA on Reddit was EPIC.

567 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-16 17:06 ID:GOfiwiEc

>>565 QAZZZZ! Yeah, maybe that's how couples talk to one another now? Crazy kids these days!

I'm excited too!! I'll be able to say I saw him in the flesh. I'm not going to ask any questions - not even about the scratches in Unrelated!!

My fiancé is coming with me actually. I smoke screened the whole thing as a Dr. House event for him. He watched the show and liked it, so I'm treating him to a Hugh Laurie event. Little does he know. When I told him about the tickets, he didn't seem too excited (House did end awhile ago and he was never a huge fan), so I had to put on the whole 'I thought I did good, I thought you'd like it' expression so he'd agree to go. He quickly obliged by feigning interest. Honesty isn't that important in a relationship.

Definitely watch TNM's other episodes. Ep. 1 was slow but it gains momentum.

If you've read back you will know that my young man has now rumbled me.

There is good TH perving material in each episode to help you through any plot limitations.

I'm actually doubtful of the knowing Hiddleston this personally claims. Because I'm doubtful of anyone who says online they know a celebrity and then proceed to get internet famous because of it. It's definitely a big call for attention, that's for sure.

OK, I found it now. It's in the 3rd thread, 800+ post. So embarrassing, and also full of late-night grammar mistakes, I think I'm not even going to link it. Whatever possessed me to share it, I don't know. Cringy all the way.

600 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-18 15:05 ID:W34cMLSy

>>597 Let's the funs begins!

I know that I'm the only one who wants to see ISTL. I think, I also may be the only one who wants THEO to exist. Yeah, to us she's about as interesting and cerebral as a piece of cardboard painted an off-beige color, and we all think he should end up with a cross between Rosie H-W (sorry, Anon) and Einstein - or Lex. However, it doesn't seem TH thinks the same.

All I truly want out of his time in LA is that he's not seen alone everywhere or with Luke alone everywhere. If that means he shows up at the organic produce market with EO - yes! Squeeze those avocados, TH. If that means they do their 'what's that bad smell' faces in public together, but then head off for some door sex - yes! Break those hinges, TH. I don't know what the DM means when they said he was getting 'relaxing treatments' at his hotel, but I'm sure he's due for some romantic female company and nookie. And nothing does romantic company and nookie better than a beige piece of cardboard!

And, yes, you should all try to be more like me. I'm the better fan. And, you should all go and follow my tumblr blog to hear more about my absolutely correct opinions. ;)

PS I'd also like him not to bring his guitar to any interviews and sing at people. Might actually pray for this one.

I want a bit of hooking up, more purses and denials. It's all been going s,well. HR got great reviews, he is in every newspaper with ButtButt. Time for him/Luke/EO's thirst for a ree-lay-shun-ship (American pronunciation) to bring back the car crash!

>>603 And yet we know that he's the type! I'm almost certain that he'll do a concert thang like he did in Nashville after the LA premiere. I think the guitar went to Vietnam for practice and prep for that reason.

Maybe he and EO will 'rock up' during an open mic event at some LA club. They'll Sonny and Cher it with a few duos while making their love clear to all...I should be running his PR; I'd make it the proper circus it's always threatening to become.

For interest - a seriously poor review of HR in the Spectator, in both senses.

http://www.spectator.co.uk/2016/03/incoherent-and-misogynistic-high-rise-reviewed/

FYI The Speccy is a right wing weekly magazine (kind of like the New Yorker only more news focussed, so no feature length 5000 word articles). Views expressed range between centre right and crazy wingnut. You may be able to guess where Deborah Ross falls. She thinks she is dead clever and her reviews are almost always crap (eg 300 words about her problems with her babysitter and then 100 words tagged on the end about the latest film).

616 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-18 18:36 ID:W34cMLSy

>>613 I don't think SPC have given up on this nag. I think they may be saddling her up and putting her in the gates. There are billboards up: ISTL on IG is running a 'Spot the ISTL Billboard' contest - so there's got to be a few. There are 3 different US trailers, all slightly different for different markets - that's planning, thought, money right there. They've got TH on at least one morning show, and now a major late night show with EO. I'm not in the know, but it seems a good push. They may even do the re-release during the Oscar bait Oct/Nov time.

Maybe they're doing it for actor/actress noms because they know they're not going to get anything else.

They're not officially out of contention, I don't think - I think NewAnon meant 'in spirit.'

617 Name: Anon : 2016-03-18 18:38 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>614 The bicycle posted a series of tweets tagging him from last summer, from about a day after Pursegate, talking about hearing TH and EO having a row, her smoking in his garden and him running out to comfort her and them screwing against his kitchen door. Looked like the tweets came from a neighbour - or were fabricated to look like they did.

618 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-18 18:39 ID:W34cMLSy

>>614 Oh, M!!! Anon should really report back as she's the one that discovered them. But on the townbycycle there were some tweets which seemed to be from a neighbor reporting on TH and EO. She/he seemed to be able to see into TH's backyard/kitchen and tweeted that TH first admired his naked self in a mirror, and then had sex with EO up against the kitchen door...but only lasted two minutes!

619 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-18 18:48 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>613>>616 The movie never released officially so this all seems obligatory movie promo to me. It's not even big. It's all taking place during the week of whereas if it was a big push, we'd see a lot more appearances, a lot more TV spots, a lot of everything basically. Whenever movies get pushed for awards, you always slapped in the face with all the promo and with ISTL, it doesn't seem that big. I mean if you weren't a TH fan, this would all be blink and miss.

620 Name: Anon : 2016-03-18 18:48 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>618 I will see if I can find them. They were hilarious. The person never said they could see in and I doubt TH would screw where he could be seen, as you can get arrested for that apart from anything else, even if it's on your own property.

But - there is a basement flat in his complex, a rental, which has the same number as his place so it must be pretty close by. You might be able to hear - and yo would know where the kitchen was if you lived underneath - you'd hear the dishwasher and the washing machine and stuff.

621 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-18 18:49 ID:W34cMLSy

>>617 >>618 And this right here sums up the different between Anon and Anon.!!
She was so factual and I was so sensationalist!

My latest work paper was about the Russians, Syria and chemical weapons. Anon would have titled it Chemical Weapons: The Possible Links Between Syria and Russia. I essentially titled it That Crazy Russian Bear-Wrestler Could Give Syrian Hitler Chemical Weapons!

Do you think Jimmy Kimmel will ask THEO about their 'great chemistry' or Syria?

>>622 Didn't MA say ISTL was his dream project? That he'd been dying to make a Hank movie? He's part of the promo so I think he's still pushing at Sony for his baby and that's why it's getting the mandatory level of publicity a movie of that budget and size might get. In my humble opinion. He went and reedited the whole thing so he's still holding out hope.

>>619 True. Maybe it is all by-the-books level stuff - I have no idea. Any sane person wouldn't spend this much money on promo for a movie that's not been a critics' darling, but then studios aren't sane.

I'm going to go see it the moment it opens because I feel like it will hit theatres and then disappear quickly. 'One for ISTL, please.' My greatest shame?

If anything, ISTL will go down as one of those movies that produced a great love affair, like Cleopatra...or Gigli.

>>624 The house is in a private complex off the main road and has high walls - see the ice bucket challenge video. You couldn't see in from an adjoining property. There is a large apartment block behind but some distance away (see same vid) - I doubt you could see into the kitchen. You could probably see into the garden but you wouldn't hear a conversation. Hence my speculation at >>620 - if there is any truth in it at all. I did think it had the ring of an authentically pissed off neighbour though!

628 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-18 19:15 ID:Xfxv9xZA

I don't believe those tweets or the JArthy ones for one same reason - they all came out after both pap night and the Tom&JArthy pub sighting had been made public very obviously and it'd been news for a while. I think I'd put more bank if these tweets came out when there were only whispers of THEO before the TOBY pic and pap night. But that's cynical me \(•~•)/

630 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-18 19:22 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>625 Can you imagine if THEO had done the Bennifer level of public romancing?? A big fat rock on EO's finger with a grinning TH on the other arm. JArthy came SO CLOSE to that with Bora Bora. Standing with TH and two chefs in a known romantic restaurant at a known romantic hotspot as TH awkwardly hovers his hand behind JA is better than being ignored by TH as 6 hungry paps circle a wailing EO behind the Wolseley.

Even Hawaii was her showing up there while he worked and still many think it's not EO but Erin Moriarty.

Pretty sure he wore most of his own clothes for TNM - maybe not the military gear, but that black v-neck looks familiar.

>>662 These might have been taken in Jan but TH is likely in LA because Eo was spotted having a PDA moment on a street corner. yep, that's how my reasoning works with these two! no confirmation it was TH and no pic. I won't link the account for reasons, but the person is not a fangirl or a gay porno pap!

667 Name: Anon : 2016-03-21 14:57 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>666 I am assuming he is in LA for the premiere tomorrow and for Jimmy Kimmel - is it recorded in LA? That red carpet will be interesting. You don't snog someone on a street corner, especially when he is on every magazine cover in town due to his new tv show, unless you want the news out there.

669 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-21 15:36 ID:Xfxv9xZA

There is an ISTL Q&A today with TH and EO so TH should definitely be in LA. >>666 the person saw EO getting cozy with someone today or yesterday?

>>661 How was the acting? I'm home. We left NH early to avoid the snow - spring, my ass. I'm going to watch it soon. Ready for the panties to fly at 'shhhh, shhhh!' That's my new favorite TH line.

>>667 I think they think they're undercover in LA as long as they don't go to celeb spots. Tweeter might have gotten it wrong, but I just don't think all these sightings are fake. Shoulder shrug.

Here's an EO ISTL interview from Nylon. TH is mentioned so it's not completely OT http://www.nylon.com/articles/elizabeth-olsen-i-saw-the-light-interview (Linked without snarky comment - I know, I know!)

671 Name: Anon : 2016-03-21 18:07 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>670 No, I don't either. The "hooking up" continues!

I can't wait to see how he/she/they play it. The balance of power has changed a lot. In May last year a lot of people commented that she was a bigger name (at least in the US, and off the internet) and speculated that he had more to gain by this pairing than her. Now he has huge visibility from TNM and HR has been well-received in the UK, which bodes well for the US. He has a public image which I am sure he will feel benefits by appearing to be footloose and fancy free - and women lying on their backs as far as the eye can see. Will he hold hands/kiss on the RC? This is more gripping than ep5!

672 Name: Anon : 2016-03-21 18:16 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>670

PS the acting, erm:

OC: A+ (again - touching scenes with Mr B)
TH: B+/A- (I can't put my finger on it. There is a slightly uneven tone to his acting through this series I find hard to put my finger on. I feel like he hasn't mastered who Pine is underneath all the roles he plays, so we see a disjointed series of personae that don't quite gel)
HL: Ranged from B to A (he gets some awful lines at the start which don't help, but when he has the material he is outstanding)

The plausibility is thinner than a size zero at this stage by the way. If I were Roper I might be able to join an instant line between new bug joining organisation in odd circumstances and secrecy suddenly going to shit, but as we saw last week he remains mystified by these coincidences!

674 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-21 18:50 ID:o+0kcRrj

>>672 Okay, seen it. I missed the 'shhhh, shhh' part, but I'll re-watch. Agree about TH - sometimes he gets it, sometimes it's a little wooden/forced/mannered. I don't know, perhaps he's being too cerebral and thinking back to RADA lessons rather than becoming the character in that gut way some actors do. Maybe he needs a pork pie hat like MR. Maybe that's the secret to great acting - a pork pie hat?

I think we're meant to believe that all hasn't gone smoothly with deals/secrecy (the first deal with Hamid/Apo/the need for the trick with the trucks), hence the inability to pin down the snitch. Supposedly he asked Corky to bring Jed because he suspected her too - as another 'new addition'. Still, you're right, and we might be in 00 range - the runway standard! Were I Roper, I'd know just from the annoying, sycophantic chuckle TH shuffles out whenever Roper tells a joke. I wouldn't trust that laugh.

>>674 Did you spot the posh, slightly braying voice bit?

Unfortunately two of my most favourite to series ever were the Le Carré pair starring Alec Guinness. He is such a consummate performer - and they too were adapted from densely plotted novels - but somehow without feeling as though we were skating over essential character motivation that was there in the book.

Thinking about it again, part of TH's problem is that his character acts purely to advance the plot right from the start. He meets a bit of Egyptian skirt and 5 minutes later is sending her private docs to his mate at the Embassy? Give me a break.

678 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-21 19:10 ID:o+0kcRrj

I'm crap with accents. Was it after he and Corky were spotted on the slope? Before the 'crunch.'

>>678 Oh yes. Wan Hundred Per Cent!

Remember this? I found it after I'd been a fan for a while and I did think that IRL he was a LOT more like the slightly bleating Old Etonians with whom I work than I had initially thought. He has definitely got a deeper "acting" and interview voice which is also less honkingly posh.

A possible THEO sighting that supposedly happened but cannot be found by anyone else but one person on this board who isn't willing to share the link.

Sounds legit. Lol.

Tomorrow should be interesting.

684 Name: Anon : 2016-03-21 23:12 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>683 Anon. has been commenting on here for a long time. She often picks up tweets that nobody else saw, and she used to post links to those tweets. Unfortunately we acquired a troll who used those links to go on Twitter and harass and abuse the person who tweeted the sighting. So by mutual agreement we stopped posting the links to any possible Twitter sightings of THEO.

Since then she has mentioned a number of tweets I was able to find pretty easily. She also posts a lot of links to other stuff like IG pics and articles that make this board worth visiting to lurkers like you.

I am not surprised it was impossible to find this particular tweet because if you check out Elizabeth Olsen's tag it is full of spam - repeat postings of airport pap pics from last year and a boatload of similar crap.

So yeah, I do believe her.

685 Name: Theeeemeee : 2016-03-22 01:57 ID:8nuBIjc8

Sorry but I also went through EO's mentions going back months and there was nothing. Nada. Usually when there is an THEO sighting it's either in her tag or his and there's no special thing anyone has to do to find these sightings. They just appear. There are people who plant sightings just as there are people who bash THEO and attack the people who tweet the sightings. Just saying...

And yes I am a lurker thanks...

686 Name: Theeeemeee : 2016-03-22 02:02 ID:8nuBIjc8

Besides all of these Twitter sightings don't matter. Tomorrow at the premiere I think they are going to finally come out as a couple and end all of the speculation. And you know what, good for them.

687 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-22 02:24 ID:Ep2jQcLc

>>681 It certainly runs in the family. Do we want to place bets on whose hand EO will hold at the premiere? I feel like TH's lack of touchy-feely-ness with EO is almost proof of something between them; he's nearly fathered the children of most of his co-stars on the red carpet, and lately that of his female director. But with her, nothing. It's almost like reverse psychology.

>>683 I'm not trolling. I saw it, I reported it - as I've done many times here.

>>684 Heart Eyes! Thank you, sir knight. What little reputation I have around here hopefully points toward my status as a non-troll.

>>686 I'd be perfectly happy for that to happen. It would lift both of them in my estimation. These PR games - we're hooking up in May, theatre/dining it in July, not dating in Sept, laser tagging it in Nov - are tiresome.

688 Name: anonsy : 2016-03-22 02:38 ID:V6C+Feoq

>>687 They were pretty touchy-feely in Nashville, though, more like Tom's usual - the awkwardness and denials were pretty centered on TIFF, I think because it was so soon after Pap Night. It'll be interesting to see this week if they continue with the normal interactions like we saw in Nashville, or if they go back to the TIFF standoffish behavior.

689 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-03-22 04:23 ID:89pEWkso

>>672 Re: TH's acting - I finished watching all episodes tonight and I think I get what you're saying. He's too good of an actor (debatable, perhaps) to play Pine flat. He must have been directed to play a lot of his acting through his eyes but it wasn't right, and I kept waiting for the rest of his face to catch up, or for Pine to say something. When he smiled in some scenes, it felt out of place, or maybe it was the timing...hard to put my finger on it. Intimidated by HL?

>>687 Lizzie's about to come on Jimmy Kimmel. I'll report back.

690 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-03-22 04:42 ID:89pEWkso

Okay, EO on Kimmel:

  • she met Harrison Ford backstage (he was on before her), and was star struck because she is big Star Wars / Indiana Jones fan, had box sets of toys as a child.
  • Jimmy made a big mention that she was recently "injured." She was working on a movie in Park City, UT with Jeremy Renner for 7 hours and became snow blinded. Her eyelids were sunburned, eyes bloodshot red. Jimmy showed a closeup of her bloodshot eye; she over giggled/ laughed, sort of a combo between embarrassed and hysterical.
  • Jimmy segued into ISTL by talking about working with Marvel stars - from working with Jeremy to working with Tom, and she said something like 'yeah I can't get away from Marvel'. She stopped giggling and got really serious about the movie. Jimmy talked about her having to sing in the movie, how comparatively bad Audrey's singing was, and she had to find a balance where Audrey sang worse than Hank but not so bad that Audrey would be completely ignored by professionals.

That's it.

693 Name: Anon : 2016-03-22 10:17 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>687 My pleasure.

You've set a hare running though - someone has whizzed over to the bicycle asking her followers to find the tweet!

I'd respect them more if they did acknowledge they were a couple - no more PR games. Not sure if they will though. I think he's better served from an image perspective by appearing to be single. Also if they admit it today, every interview they do over the next week (for ISTL or his other appearances for TNM) will be about the relationship. I can't imagine they want the headlines about those projects to be "TH and EO finalleeeeeee admit relationship (ps was that a lie we heard in Toronto?)"

However I wait with baited breath!!

694 Name: anonsy : 2016-03-22 10:36 ID:V6C+Feoq

>>693 I still think it is/was casual enough that labeling it a "relationship" would have been an exaggeration, thus the denials coupled with the occasional sighting. Most people don't want to remain sexless for extended periods of time, and I'd imagine as someone in the public eye it's difficult to find a partner you can trust - and why invest all that time and effort in building trust with a stranger when all you're looking for is something casual? It makes sense that they'd hook up. They've known each other for a few years, they filmed together, they're promoting together, they're in and out of each other's home cities, and they're both very career driven at the moment and probably not wanting anything too serious.

As for the premiere, I believe the only thing we can be certain of seeing on the red carpet is a bad gown. But who knows? Maybe she'll surprise me.

695 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-22 12:12 ID:Ep2jQcLc

>>690 thanks. Let me guess...she wore black? Ill-fitting? >>694 Her stylist seems to be taking the piss, or her sisters tell her what to wear. Either way, her dress will probably be somewhere to the west of right.

>>691 Thank you. I knew I couldn't have been the only one.

>>693 well, now that the hounds have been let fly, it will likely come to light. As I said, it wasn't much of a tweet and with no confirmation of it being TH or even EO, but neither was that Hawaii tweet that everyone dismissed.

>>693 Talking about the relationship might make for better press than talking about the film itself. Rotten Tomatoes has new reviews from Feb and Mar up and they are not pretty. If MA did re-edit, he employed the same cack-handed techniques he used originally.

The gown is actually so ill fitting sceptics could again argue she is deliberately trying to look pregnant. She's a strong contender for fug of the year.

720 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-23 03:45 ID:Ep2jQcLc

>>718 At least it's not black. Color looks good on her. I find her style so strange - while I'm glad she isn't falling out of a latex dress like a Kardashian, she does have a lovely figure (as my grandmother would say), so I'm not sure why everything she wears is so ill-fitting!

Also, I think her make-up here is on point. And the hair is good too, a lot better than the wrapped ponytail a la Nashville - that was awful hair.

They do look good together, and more importantly, they don't seem to be playing the TIFF games or the Nashville games. And while I don't think they're giving anything away, she does look very 'cat that got the cream' in some of the pics.

If we didn't know the backstory we wouldn't look at the pics and assume anything other than his usual friendship with his co-stars. Jury still seems to be out.

Can I be controversial and say I don't like his suit? The fabric was stiff and I thought the stitching in the lapel and its shininess made it look cheap (I am sure it wasn't). Also is there no middle ground between really dull dark navy and knock your eye out blue? It somehow worked for the Reiss suit - but translated off a fun high street piece to high end designer gear I am not sure it does.

>>730 That's an interesting question. The assumption before the election was that Farage would take voters from the right - however it now appears that more damage was done to the left (http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/may/23/labour-win-working-class-voters-ukip).

The theory is that white working class men from the North, traditional Labour supporters, are most likely to feel threatened by immigration because immigrants are competing for the same unskilled work and are often prepared to work for lower wages. They are therefore likely to respond to the UKIP message of no immigration and to be turned off by Labour's silence on this issue. Labour has tended to accuse the Tories of racism for wanting to debate immigration, but that position has tended to mean Labour hasn't addressed the issue at all, or done enough to address the concerns of those who feel that "jobs are being stolen.

Okay, I'm not going to spend my last day of vacay searching his 1,400 strong twitter feed for anything juicy, but here are some links. I'm not as good at this as Coach, so it's not anywhere near complete:

>>736 The one where he lifts his arm near his face. It's the first pic in the link - he does it all the time. He looks like a tit when he does.

The weather is gorgeous, from snow to sunshine/70s in two days! So, I've abandoned that whole productive thing and have taken up with a book and iPad at a cafe. I'm imagining that TH gave EO a goodbye shag last night and has already landed in NYC. I'm sure he'll be strolling by any moment now. He'll stop for a coffee, there won't be any tables except for mine, I'll invite him to sit, we'll fall in love and end up on a date tonight (I've brought my purse for just such an occasion)!

When the book gets boring, I read gossip sites. This was on Dlisted. Oh, Michael K, you complete me! This article makes me want the above scenario to happen with MK, not TH!

I did think he was wearing pants under the blue suit because it was riding quite high instead of escaping down his trouser leg like usual. Do we think the stylist bought them?

>>740 As for the stylist.....I couldn't agree more. Who would admit to having "styled" the most boring outfit on God's earth?

And mysteriously she claims to have "styled" the blue suit - which I have just realised is the blue suit from the night manager (same colour, stitching, pocket placement, length of jacket, the lot). Do we really now "style" people to put on clothes they already own?

I can only assume that as a creature of habit he was once told by someone he respected that it looked great so he's doing it all the time forever more. I noticed it's creeping into his acting in TNM. He did it on the scene in the plane and I cringed so hard I created a permanent wrinkle.
>>743 The hands in pockets is a deliberate ploy to smooth out and detract from Little Hiddles. It also solves the issue of what to do with his hands and I'm always grateful when he's not doing the thinking man.

This is exactly what they did at TIFF.

I understand that she's not going to cop to making a five-hour plane journey for a booty call (laser tag included!). I understand that he's not going to cop to using his TNM wall sex scene as a practice round for kitchen door sex later in the year with his FWB. But don't assume that our memories are that short.

And TH's laugh in that interview is exactly like the one he gives Roper in TNM!

This interview makes me think TH may be missing a screw or two. He's still using words like 'genius' when speaking about MA and this movie. Christ.

At the very end EO talks about TH being at 'the finishing up of Marvel land.' She may just be talking twaddle, but maybe she's in the know and Thor III is the end for TH.

754 Name: anonsy : 2016-03-24 03:00 ID:V6C+Feoq

>>753 I wonder about him sometimes. Is he trying to talk up the movie to get people to see it? Does he view his projects through rose-colored glasses? Is he in denial? Does he just have poor judgment?

Scarlet Witch will be in Infinty War, so EO very well may already know that Loki isn't involved. I'd personally be glad to see Tom out of the Marvel universe, so hopefully Thor 3 will be the end for him.

>>753 >>754 I think a bit of both. He is loyal to his projects and does the publicity with apparent enjoyment - which I find commendable as I hate those actors who get sulky, or can't wait to distance themselves from something that's had bad reviews.

I think the screw is loose about this particular project. Going all method, losing all that weight, falling in lurve with his Audrey (!!). I do believe he hoped for an Oscar from day 1 on set and I don't think he has let that go. He must be thinking "But I suffered! I didn't eat and you know how I love cake! I can't sing and I inflicted it on others! I must get an Oscar. Mummy, I want one!"

757 Name: Anon : 2016-03-24 09:07 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>748 In addition to calling MA a genius, he is calling EO a great actor.

The interview question about dating was whatever is the exact opposite of "going for the jugular". "Exactly how stupid were those poxy dating rumours that your people planted with the gullible tabloid press?" If EO is still riding the Hiddleconda she better be very sure the relationship is going nowhere because they are going to look very silly when they announce their engagement and forthcoming birth of baby Hank.

Totally agree about TH's nervous titter! We need a side-eyes emoji.

Hopefully, they won't talk about: yodeling, Bond, his naked bottom, possibly breaking up a co-star's engagement, British politics or Eton. Although I think they may poke fun at his bottom again. It does seem the obvious topic of late.

People may be sympathetic toward TH or MA - hell, maybe even EO - but I'm thinking of TH's father. All that money for his education, and his son finds himself: with a stylist, in a relationship that has to skitter past scandal to grow serious, and becoming increasingly known for getting his kit off on film. Does Eton do partial refunds?

She's right - we are strangers talking about something we don't really know about. And all we can do is speculate based on what's thrown into the public arena. But as Anon said >>757, the first rumors - in a quasi-legitimate magazine which she'd previously used as a mouthpiece - seemed to come from a camp.

Lizzie, I think we were asked to "really care" about your relationship - for whatever reasons. And now, we're being asked to not care - and being belittled for caring in the first place.

Yeah, me no like.

766 Name: Anon : 2016-03-24 14:01 ID:JylagXHm

>>765 She hasn't said the speculation is untrue I notice!

But yeah, I am starting to really dislike her and her "mind your own business, losers" approach to this. They (she?) fed the beast twice (maybe three times f you count the "it's over" article) and as I have said a bazillion times before, if you want to have fun and be discreet in London it is easy to do so. A lot of famous people live here and they rarely get papped.

OT: I also dislike her "I'm not one of those fancy intellectuals, me" schtick. Not reading books is fine - I know a lot of lawyers who go home and watch the X Factor and seem to engage in no intellectual pursuits at all. Nobody's calling them thick. But don't vent your insecurity by seeking to belittle those who do read the odd book.

The look on their faces at 2.05 sums it all up. They even had to edit that ramble.

I've obviously seen too many interviews; it's all spewing out in a scripted repetitive format lacking all spontaneity. I can't stand it when people crack the same joke word for word more than once, especially when the first time was lacklustre.

>>762 Can I add impressions to the banned list? And rambling. And ten gallon hats.

This is an interesting one. I linked it above with the comment that it said it was 'official' but seemed to just be his groomer taking some BTS shots.

Now, she's said on the page that they are planning to cover the promo tour with this IG account. Is this TH's sneaky way of adding another social media feather to his cap...but not really.

She also said that the tour's six weeks long! Where the hell is he going? I guess it's going to be a mix of TNM and ISTL, perhaps some US High-Rise thrown in...but six weeks?

771 Name: Anon : 2016-03-24 16:35 ID:VhNAEDLk

>>770 "The official Instagram for the adventures of Tom Hiddleston and his team as we cross this crazy world" - yes I think you are right. She wouldn't be doing her own social media featuring him without his agreement - for example Olly doesn't tend to post pics of TH.

Also, 6 weeks??? Poor bastard. And poor us. We will be totally sick of the ISTL anecdotes (to the extent we aren't already).

>>765>>766 I don't like how she goes overboard with her "denial" and starts bashing the fans and gossip readers instead. They made it our business by first leaking it on US Weekly otherwise no one was thinking about THEO. Then the tabloids continued. And now they're acting like it's all other ppl's fault for being nosey and not theirs for starting it and continuing it. If you want to keep things on the downlow then don't tell the tabloids about it. Tom wasn't so anti fan in his supposed denial but EO goes really does overact in her denials and dismissals. Pap night included. You asked us to care and when the cheating came up and the movie flopped, now it's all our fault. If they are in a relationship, it really makes no sense to hide it like this. But if all they're doing is hooking up whenever the mood strikes well then they can't exactly come out and say we're just fucking because I don't think that'll jive well with the squeaky clean images both are trying to project in the public. Lol instead they'll blame the same people who they were targeting to carry their tabloid rumor and make them talk of the town.

I might be in the minority but after seeing the ISTL premiere's live footage, I don't think TH and EO are even banging anymore. However much they were getting it on, I think it died down after Hawaii. But that's just me, I could be wrong.

783 Name: Anon : 2016-03-24 22:59 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>782 EO hates you for caring. LOL.

I didn't watch the footage so I don't know. It can present a totally different impression from still pictures. But whatever your view, that's cool. The best thing about being around here is that there is no party line. Having read lots of vitriolic CB threads and crazy tumblr exchanges I can't say often enough how important that is. FWIW I am pretty sure anonsy agrees with you!

Anyhow it will be interesting to see how this pans out once they aren't spending a lot of time together publicising the movie, or filming on the same continent. Or (if you're cynical) once they have no project to shill with some dodgy relationship-related clickbait. She has certainly painted herself into a corner with her comments over the last few days - as Anon. said, nobody likes a hypocrite. Or a liar. How do they either use the relationship for publicity, or even admit its existence, now?

Whatever they had, whether they still have it - we're not meant to care, and we're not meant to talk about it. Otherwise, EO will send her sisters after us; they'll suck out our souls and use them to construct awful clothes.

That having been said, I wouldn't be surprised if they rock up together again. I also wouldn't be surprised if they're never in the same room again.

There was a screening tonight. Wrenn Schmidt is wearing Self-Portrait. I actually have this dress - I like their stuff a lot. I think girl paid for this dress herself - it wasn't lent to her, it wasn't a freebie. And she probably styled herself. WS is all of us!

TH seems to be going for old-school British gent: double-breasted waistcoat, tie clip, pocket square...where's the pocket watch? I'll give it a thumbs-up.

>>783 that's exactly why I love this board and keep coming on here. No one attacks you for your opinion and everyone has a good laugh! On EO painting herself into a corner, yeah if whatever they have turns serious it'll be fun to volley those questions :P

>>785 anon hifive and if we're wrong it's okay we'll just do shots everytime EO hides her face behind her bag and wails out for Tom.

>>788 is that how EO ended up with her seemingly eternal curse of bag clothes? Don't make the twins mad! >>789 There weren't too many pics of Wrenn from the Nashville premiere so I'm glad to see she's getting the spotlight at the NY premiere. She looks really cute!

>>787 Missed it.
>>789 I love the look. Don't remember seeing a waistcoat quite like that one anywhere.

I saw an IG comment that he smelled really good; I've heard that before from some of the fans. Are we ever gonna find out what he wears? Is it something high-end like Clive Christian, or is it bespoke and we'll never know the formula?

792 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-03-25 07:40 ID:89pEWkso

Someone asked the new stylist, in one of the comments on her IG , if they can get an address to send a basket to her as thanks for dressing him so nicely. ....

>>792 Don't do it, Stylist! Don't tell them! They'll show up at your house!!!

794 Name: Anon : 2016-03-25 08:59 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>791 Yeah, I give it to her for this look. It's great. The waistcoat is what I'd call a very traditional old-fashioned English, Savile Row style. Love to know who it's by.

Not sending a fruit basket just yet! Torrilla's pics of the Today suit show that it as shiny and didn't fit over his new muscle manboobs. Also that he was wearing a shiny satin tie. My dad used to wear those in the 70s and it was not a good look then.

Some have said he smells citrussy. If that's right my guess is something simple and easily available (shopping issues!) like Jo Malone lime basil mandarin.

OT: The most loved men's cologne ever is Creed Aventus. A friend from work wears it and women ask him all the time what it is. I have seen strangers ask him in the street. I bought my hubs a bottle (he never wears it!) and one time I wore it on a whim for a night out. When I got into the cab the taxi driver said "God, you smell beautiful" and started hitting on me! (This never happens). I have wondered if TH wears it given that everyone says he smells amazing. I ah e decided not as someone would have just jumped him by now. The combination of him and Creed would be too much!

795 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-25 09:13 ID:Xfxv9xZA

I thought he wore Farenheit by Dior. It was during while he was shooting CP and meeting fans and someone asked and his assistant on set mentioned it was Farenheit. I've sniffed it once when I was in Sephora and it was a very clean crisp scent. Even if you put on too much, it doesn't overpower.

>>795 I hadn't heard that. I will go sniff next time I am in Selfridges.

797 Name: anonsy : 2016-03-25 09:25 ID:V6C+Feoq

After a bit of googling around, I found this tumblr post:
http://witheyeslikestars.tumblr.com/post/69871494041/

Summary: the two scents people usually mention Tom possibly wearing are Farenheit by Dior and Armani Code. The above tumblr poster met Tom, smelled both colognes at a later date, and settled on the Armani. But - a lot of people do change his scent depending on the event or season, so it's very possible he uses both.

One of us is going to have to find him and smell him. For science.

798 Name: anonsy : 2016-03-25 09:26 ID:V6C+Feoq

809 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-25 14:42 ID:Ep2jQcLc

>>794 Maybe part of being a 'top stylist' is knowing how fabric 'shows' on different mediums. It was a shuper shiny shuit in pics - but didn't look it on the tv interviews he did that day.

Also, maybe he just really wanted to emphasize his man-boobs!

OT: Aventus was worn (I asked about 2 minutes after meeting him!) by a dashing middle-aged man I knew at the Foreign Office. Our teams would have mtgs together two times a month - and I so looked forward to them! He always smelled of pineapples and moss and MAN! Heart-eyes.

>>811 The red head is the groomer. The African American woman is PR - she was with him during CP. I have no idea who the dark haired woman is - maybe the PR woman's assistant? Maybe a back-up groomer (heaven forbid his hair loose height!). And we all know Olly - TH's lady maid.

I think of Dylan Moran on Jonathan Ross - donkeys ago. JR asked him if someone helped him with his style. DM - who looked like he usually does - a mess! - said, something along the lines of 'This look doesn't just happen. This represents the work of a small team of Italian craftsmen.'

>>812 >>816 It appeared to work on me. It seems not to be one of those perfumes that smells different on different people (maybe because it's so dear - sigh). Aventus is way better than any of Creed's ladyperfumes and it smells suitably unisex.

Oh, yeah, they's iz pushing this. Screening in Chicago with Q/A after with MA and TH. He's also done radio interviews today. And he and WS will be at an Apple store - I think in Midtown, although there are about a dozen in Midtown - to do a Q/A.

Maybe Anonon - who I think may be our resident showbiz expert - can shed some light on whether this is still standard fair for promo. Or maybe Whatsinaname, who also seems to be in-the-know.

Maybe SPC is pushing so hard because they want to earn their money back - not for awards.

>>820 Yep, SPC are giving it a fair-ish chance. Aint-it-cool-news has always had a lot of pull with the geek crowd. Comic book movies, action movies, horror movies, sci-fi movies, remakes of comic book, action, horror, and sci-fi movies - you get the idea. (Just go to the link in >>820 and look at the topics on the right sidebar.) Harry, the geek guy who runs it, gets into advanced screenings all the time. His positive reviews about an early cut of a movie really matter to the movie producers. So they'll get him to announce these free ticket event promos for many movie openings.

But this genre? A biopic about a long-dead country singer? This is different and worth noting. I'm guessing they were approached by SPC in case any Marvel fans might be interested in seeing Loki and Scarlet Witch to drum up positive vibes wherever they can. Aint-it-cool-news was always independent, so I'd be surprised to learn that he'd signed a contract with SPC or some middleman/arm of Sony's PR dept. to promote their movies no matter what the movie was.

Oh, I'm just catching up, so much goings on!
New shoes (I like!), new grey polo, meh.
>>820 I can shed no light on PR or promo, I'm in the biz on set only (and some pre- production) in the trade that is supposed to make faces match necks and hands.
I agree with >>830 that they aren't sweeping this under the rug. Given that the official reason for delaying the release was TH's availability for promotion, he has to promote the shit out of this to legitimise the delay.
They are certainly not shying away from questions relating to marvel/ marvel fantasy hookups, or for that matter questions relating to their own hookup, both of which are guaranteed clickbait and completely off topic.

http://www.bustle.com/articles/149937-elizabeth-olsen-reveals-the-perils-of-fame-how-she-transformed-into-the-woman-behind-hank
This article confuses me.
Aren't Bustle responsible for all the annoying gushing pro TH fluff that have occasionally been mistaken for journalism? I always wondered if they were backed by his PR. Now they're going to his press conferences and conducting hotel room interviews?
'when I bring up her IMPECCABLE FASHION SENSE (my olive green sweater is embarrassingly uncool compared to her V-neck cut-out dress and large statement necklace)'.
Ha! The low cut V- neck with side boob straddled by King Kong's fingernail was true!

833 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-26 03:01 ID:czAF6UJO

>>832 All I know about Bustle is from an article about its slightly controversial startup. It does have a staff of permanent writers/editors, but no editor-in-chief. Also, a number of its contributions come from freelance 'authors' - think, underpaid interns. These 'authors' are the ones who tend to write the laughable (TH) articles. Some are little more than a series of tumblr gifs with captions. I would imagine, therefore, that this is a permanent writer who has enough pull to get a quick sit-down with EO. Bustle does get a lot of hits and has established itself as a 'feminist' online mag, so getting a quick sit-down wouldn't be too hard.

Why did she need to put her jacket on for an indoor interview?

838 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-26 03:55 ID:Xfxv9xZA

Yeah there's nothing spectacular or sizzle worthy chemistry when you watch the video. It's below the usual cuddles and flirting and hugging TH normally does with his costars. That's why I figured whatever they had is gone. OR if Anon's theory is right then the less physical interaction Tom has with a female, the more likely it is that he's banging her! Or maybe he's just scared that if he squeezes her in a hug the twins will pop out of her dress. By twins I mean her sisters. Not the other set of twins that are already winking at us.

839 Name: anonsy : 2016-03-26 04:13 ID:V6C+Feoq

>>838 I feel like his behavior here falls somewhere in the middle of his usual red carpet spectrum - not as comfortable as when he's with Jessica Chastain or Tilda Swinton, but a little more friendly/familiar than the ladies from High Rise, for example. Even the Nashville premiere was within his usual interactions - I think the reason it seemed so over the top was because of the stiff awkwardness we saw at TIFF.

840 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-26 05:06 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>839 Most likely. Though I will go on record and say I did side eye EO at Nashville because she seemed to be copying Chastain from the CP premiere. I'm definitely guilty of over analyzing because I did compare the LA premiere to the NY one and to me TH appeared more warm and friendly with Wrenn than he did with EO.

841 Name: anonsy : 2016-03-26 05:27 ID:V6C+Feoq

>>840 I wonder how much all the gossip affects their interactions. It has to at least cross their minds that their behavior is going to be analyzed. I think that was part of the reason they seemed so awkward at TIFF - it was the first time they were publicly together since Pursegate, and they had obviously decided to put forth a "we are not dating" vibe, regardless of what their relationship actually was. So yes, I agree that he did seem more comfortable with Wrenn, but they don't have "careful where you put your hands, people think we're together" running through their heads.

842 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-26 05:39 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>841 I'm sure it's on their mind and dictating a lot of their behavior. But I mean they did leak and tease the initial rumor to get people to wonder about "are they or are they not" so it's part of the monster they created. No one was really thinking it before. Not saying TH and EO deserve abuse or anything vicious over it but if you're going to tease and leak rumors like that, they end up taking on a life of their own and you have weather the fallout. And their ambiguous denials just help the shippers and haters from perpetuating those rumors. Yay gossip and celebrities lol

The Charlie Rose interview did air but they haven't posted it yet on either youtube or their site. I'm afraid to even watch it. I don't know if I can watch him be so heartfelt anymore. It's like when new parents coo over their infant's dirty nappy.

The movie's now at 14% on RT. I'm going to have to buy a ticket for another movie and then go into this one. I'm such a bad fan (self fan shaming).

846 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-26 11:46 ID:teXrXidl

>>844 Goodness, talk about perpetuating the talk. People are going to keep asking him about Bond - he needs to come up with better answers than what I've heard so far. And he needs to ditch the 'awww shucks' way of answering it. When an interviewer on the RC suggested he could make a good Bond, TH actually blessed him for saying it. If he wants to be Bond (I think he does), well, Bond doesn't bless people.

Stock answer: 'Listen (shows a Bond-like forcefulness), if you're British, wear suits and have a penis, you're going to be linked to Bond. I'm British, I wear suits and I have a penis - just ask the co-star of my latest movie, she's seen it (shows Bond-like alley cat morals). So while the talk is flattering, it's just talk, nothing more.' (And then DON'T babble on about how much you liked Bond when you were in short pants!)

Or

'If I had been Bond, Judi Dench's M would still be alive.'

847 Name: Anon : 2016-03-26 12:06 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>846 He wants it. That's the problem. His little face lights up whenever anyone suggests it. He is obviously thrilled to be mentioned in the same sentence as Bond and I don't begrudge him that especially while he's flogging the ISTL dead horse and seeing his dreams of Oscar glory crumble.

But I agree that his puppyish enthusiasm isn't screaming "Bond." Neither, from my perspective, is the publicity given to his ever-increasing entourage, which is making my ladyparts shrivel. Does Bond travel with a groomer (ugh)? I know he always travelled with a makeup lady and the Lady's Maid, so the image I had of him as a low(ish) maintenance guy was to a degree an illusion. But even last summer he seems to have dealt with the new clothes problem by going to his local Reiss (there is one in Hampstead) and doing a supermarket sweep. ("V neck tees? Ooh yes I will have 6 please!"). It was endearing. Carefully curated Italian cashmere polo shirts - a lot less so.

>>849 He wore brown shoes at TIFF with his pale grey jacket and trousers. That outfit was all from Reiss so I am sure he picked it himself. He looked nice - he can do it without a stylist!

I like the grey shoes and I am not sad to see the boots being given a rest. They snuck in a couple of days ago with the other polo shirt.

I was thinking back to Cannes - on that day there was no grooming because he travelled overnight by some weird route as there was a strike or something. He was pictured arriving in the blue suit with wet hair - I think he showered and changed at the airport and went straight to the photocall. He looked great. Nuff said.

To look at TH in these pics, you'd think they were taken on the same day. Looking at JH, you realize they weren't - TH is just wearing the exact same outfit.

Here's the podcast with TH and EO. I haven't listened yet, but sounds good.

Second series of TNM confirmed.

Singing, more hats and spoons.
I will watch both these interviews squinting through one eye when drunk.

>>870 That's what happens when you get a stylist- suddenly your cheap cotton v- necks are replaced by ludicrously priced cashmere. Such a shame, with the help of his sunglasses they were almost sinking to his navel

877 Name: Anon : 2016-03-29 07:59 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>873 I am impressed that Charlie Rose is available internationally! Way to go, Charlie! Other thoughts:

1) Earnest men sitting round a table mansplaining Hank Williams.
2) Tom's face when MA got the mic and went on for a while!
3) MA has made a move about HW and he says he still doesn't know why HW wrote the songs he did and was a genius. This explains a lot about how poor the movie was. We come to you for guidance, Marc. You lived with and were passionate about this man's life for god knows how many years and when people ask what made him tick you just shrug?
4) Moment of unintentional hilarity for Brits. Clip of TH as HW drinking from teeny weeny bottle of American beer. Charlie [Serious Voice]: "He had an addiction." British people: pfffffffffhhhhhh!
5) Impressed by CR generally. I watched the whole thing. In Britain we have crap like Graham Norton or serious stuff like Newsnight. There's nothing for those who drool over TH but still have some higher brain activity.

878 Name: Anon : 2016-03-29 08:08 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>876 Put into context: apparently the blue Alexander McQueen suit was $1600. Also, he has 2 of these polo tops, one in navy and one in grey. I would give anything to have been a fly on the wall when the stylist was explaining why he needed to spend $2400 on knitwear. I do hope she got him a discount.

Don't worry, I think he will ruin the cashmere by stretching it. You can't keep a good man down. London has a terrible epidemic of clothes moths. I don't give much for its chances.

880 Name: Anonon : 2016-03-29 09:35 ID:DohS3ENz

>>878 I highly doubt TH has paid for many of his clothes over the last few years. He has clearly been sponsored by labels and most likely had a stylist who chose his capsule wardrobe. It's only now that he has a high profile stylist who is leveraging her own profile from the collaboration that we are finally becoming aware.
I must say, the bi- annual tennis parade has become somewhat of a cheesy advertisement, on par with strategically placed coke bottles in movies. Wearing Lauren in the Lauren stadium and posing backstage in the Lauren marquee. What a shock he is wearing so much Lauren on this tour!
>>879 Absolutely, I cynic with you.
The only chance this series had of not reappearing was if it completely bombed. I guess the level of AMC re-investment rides on the ratings in the States. Since it's returning to our screens this time next year they will have to shoot it soon after Raganork.

Did he play the spoons? That scene in Archipelago was almost worth sitting through Archipelago.

882 Name: Anon : 2016-03-29 15:09 ID:VhNAEDLk

>>880 I am sure he hasn't paid for his suits and all those dinner jackets. I also never thought in a million years he chose the RL sweaters he's been seen in over the last 6 months so someone has been helping. But I bet he paid for and chose a lot of his casual wardrobe up to TIFF. A lot of it seemed to come from Reiss and there was so little of it and it was all pretty cheap stuff. I thought it looked authentically chaotic!

>>876 I always side-eye the second series of a tv show. Broadchurch was brilliant; Broachchurch 2.0 - not so much.

No confirmation of who will come back. Burr seems to be likely (after maternity leave). Maybe Steadman? So much can go wrong with TNM2: Roper gets off, but has suffered amnesia at the hands of the Egyptians; this then allows Pine to just do exactly what he did before but in ever so slightly changed circumstances.

I'm assuming that if TH returns (Working Title: No Longer a Night Manager) that his arse will also make a return. Maybe he'll go undercover as a male stripper to bring down an all-female gang of drug traffickers.

885 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-29 18:45 ID:nI/pUk8y

>>880 I've wondered about how designers 'lend' to male stars. For women it is a case of lending just for the occasion, as they likely won't wear it again. I remember EO standing in the rain at TIFF and worrying about that terrible dress and saying, 'I don't own this dress!'

Is the same the case for men? Do they have to return them after wearing, or do they get a deal for a little advertisement and get to keep them?

>>882 I think the treble RL at Wimb, last year may have been the first time TH aligned himself with a designer. The RL account tweeted about it, and he took pics as Anonon said; I don't know if we've seen that sort of advertisement before (I could be wrong!). I feel the Reiss stuff might have jut been TH...maybe Luke too!

Hopefully he hasn't paid the full price of $2400 for 2 polo shirts!

>>885 I've noticed he's been wearing (under)pants a lot more recently. (Confirmed by the position of the junk and the waistband peeking out). This makes me think the recent suits are on loan. You don't go commando in another man's fatigues.

Other designer items I assume he got a discount for, or he snaffled from set. We remarked on Pine wearing TH's clothes but I wonder if it was the other way around. The costume department buys for his character and he kept some of it (eg the bright blue McQueen suit). Though saying that, some does seem to have been his - such as the hiking boots in ep2, which looked very like the ones he wore on his UNICEF trip.

It is all very interesting!

PS EO chose to borrow that dress? Words fail me.

>>880 PS The previous time he was at Wimbledon (with the JArthy!) he was wearing the blue Reiss suit. My recollection is that last summer was his first association with RL. I think RL has a hospitality tent at Wimbledon (in common with other sponsors like Veuve a liquor) but Centre Court is Centre Court - there isn't enough money in the world to get the Lawn Tennis Association to rename it the RL stadium!! So maybe not a totally obvious product placement.

I loved the Colbert interview. Finally some endearing spark and originality in amongst the scripted claptrap.

>>882 Nothing screams casual as much as that fan photo taken on the Gold Coast with at least two gaping holes in his wardrobe. He wasn't even jogging. I can't help but wonder if his natural inclination is to imitate a hobo and he has always needed a helping hand to coordinate chaotic casual.
>>885 He was aligned with Armani before RL and has been courting McQueen on the red carpet. McQueen plugged his recent appearance so I imagine they are on board as well.
>>884 I hope you pen the next script
>>885 >>887 Clothes are borrowed by stylists for photo shoots and RC appearances but sponsorship deals like RL mean that he has full access to their range in exchange for flogging it. It's extremely unusual for actors to use items from their own wardrobe on film sets- maybe for a fleeting scene, but panic sets in if pickups are required. Actors are sometimes gifted items or can purchase them at a reduced rate once production ends.
>>889 My bad about stadium sponsorship but he was most definitely a walking billboard that day:

I saw Colbert and I was impressed - again! I have to hand it to Colbert - he is a very good interviewer (an underrated art). Original questions, not afraid to show he is intelligent and the man can sing! (Colbert, I mean).

I liked the anecdote about the spoon damage, and TH's telling of it - "It's a nice memory now - or so she claims". When you get him off "I spent 6 weeks living with a gifted musician whose name is Rodney Crowell" he is a charming, clever and witty interviewee.

His stories were right on in the podcast. I think that there was no mention of RC and then the obligatory trotting out of the southern accent - that was nice. There was mention of the yodel, but not the stock phrase he's used to discuss it or a demo. Bonus, bonus!

Colbert touched my heart with mention of his Classics degree. And there should be a mic drop when people read Plato in the original Greek - shit's hard. He plays the spoons well - Archipelago should have just been him playing the spoons.

If he's quit I might believe he and EO are on the outs. I think his 'I smoked with Hank' answer earlier was really a 'I smoked while spending a lot of time with my smoker co-star.' Damn, I was actually hoping they'd get married in Vegas, in white fringe. Okay, single, female country music stars - he's headed your way, make your moves!

I guess, technically, he didn't sing in TPF. You can't call what he did 'singing.'

>>922 Yes, you articulate what was lurking unformed in my mind. Speaking as an ex smoker, it is very context-specific. If I had married a smoker I still would smoke.

Did you listen to it? He said - exact words - "No, no, I'm not [a smoker]" and that he didn't smoke real cigarettes while playing HW. Conspiracy theorists and fans of metaphor may find it amusing that he previously said to the Guardian "I did [smoke] a bit when I played Hank. A stupid idea". So how we know that in about September last year he thought that dating a smoker was stupid. See, it all fits in with that "they broke up" story in November...!!!!!!!!! (I'm joking here)(maybe).

I'll agree that it's stupid to take up smoking as a way to spend time with someone - if that's what he meant.

I think he could still smoke socially but not consider himself 'a smoker.'

I am starting to think my bilious feelings are due to too much TH (and not entirely too many Easter eggs).

The amazing thing is that that tiny piece about women's lovely things has generated nearly 200 comments on CB (most of them batshit crazy), even after almost daily click bait articles on him. I feel the need to lie down in a darkened room. It's like 1984. I feel like I will turn on any radio channel and hear his voice.

I tell you what, I did listen to the Favorite Song broadcast with John Benjamin Hickey (I only had time to post the link before). If you want a meaty interview that's your one. JBH is another good interviewer and very knowledgeable and passionate about music generally - as is TH, slightly to my surprise. It was a pleasure listening to him talk about a passion instead of dutifully plugging the product.

JBH adroitly steered him away from Hank until the very last song. Even then it was "why does this song have such universal appeal" and not "tell us about the time you had sex with Rodney and then played him a song and smoked a herbal cigarette after".

Has anyone actually seen ISTL yet? I looked at Rotten Tomatoes and the reviews almost made me cry. Sample: "If you've always thought, as I have, that Tom Hiddleston was such a good actor that he could salvage any movie, well, welcome to ISTL."

And on grinds the publicity tour. I have to hand it to him for continuing to polish this turd so assiduously. It must be incredibly demoralising.

>>940 Oh, god. As unfunny as TH can be...Loki'd, anyone? - Jim Carrey is even unfunnier. April Fool's is also good for showing you what terrible things can be dreamed up. Let's pray it's a joke.

>>942 It was at 12% at one point, but is now at 16%. The guy from the Globe gave is 3.5/4 stars and called it better than Walk the Line. It could become a little Marmite with time.

>>942 So, it's still only playing at the Angelika here. It's not anywhere else - not even next week! Not at either AMCs in the Village. These theatres tend to get most major releases, so this release is going to be small, or filter late into major theaters from the arthouses.

The problem is the Angelika is usually full of pretentious Soho types. And what with non-banked seats (I'm a shorty) and dodgy sound, it's just not a nice place to see a film. But maybe that will work with this film! I can't see or hear it...it's great! I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and go this weekend because I'm thinking I might not get the chance if I don't go soon.

It will be on Sunday when the boy's at work (shhhh, he must never know!). If I do go, I'll report back.

It does not surprise me at all though, American country music is absolutely unpopular in LT. If not for TH, I would still have no idea who HW was.

The only reference to ISTL I found in Lithuanian internets is a short video featurette on one of our news websites (a very popular one and actively commented on, BTW!) and it has no comments, no nothing, and the total number of views of 921. Three of those are mine.

Oh, look at that 'casually unbutton shirt' - I'm sure he and the stylist had a 30 minutes convo about it. I think he may be in danger of hyping himself out of Bond.

I link this for rhetorical purposes. I find this interview so fascinating from a journalistic standpoint. So the original was in Hello (it seems), then the ES did an edit of it, then Anon posted a tumblr scan of what we thought was the actual Hello article, but this one - from the Philippines - has more than the Hello tumblr scan.

Would the original and full article please stand up?

Or am I confused/missing something obvious about this article.

951 Name: Anon : 2016-04-03 14:09 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>950 I am guessing it was either a group interview and we are getting a second version of the same answers (not very well transcribed. Something about this makes me think it was transcribed by a non English speaker. Sounds too curt to be him, apart from anything else. And the idiom sounds wrong). Or, it was one interview which has been sold to lots of people and cut down by them.

952 Name: Anon : 2016-04-03 14:14 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>949 I cannot believe the stylist is owning this outfit. I am sure she helped him to buy the items but the combo is not good (blue fancy suit jacket with black jeans, grey boots and different blue shirt - fairly uncoordinated if you ask me). It looks like what I suspect it is - TH opens suitcase and selects one shirt, one pair trousers, one jacket, one pair shoes and puts them all on. Or do we now believe she appears at his bedside every day and lays out his clothes? (shades of Louis XIV)

I now feel I have heard and read so much about ISTL that if it is ever released in the UK I ought to go and see it, just to express my admiration for TH's efforts in the publicity department. He said on Radio 2 that he hoped it would be released in the UK in May. He will be resting before starting to film TR so I have hopes he will attend 200 or so screenings here....

>>951 That must be it - or something along those lines.

>>956 >>957 It's a large country with lots of local news/entertainment outlets, and they all want their pound of flesh. Sony hasn't gone in for half measures, that's for sure.

>>956 The Verge article: the The Work argument doesn't fly very far, not with his expanded 'team.' Having a groomer and paying someone to pick out your socks doesn't scream 'Work.' It points to someone who very much wants to influence people's opinions. Which is fine - being an actor means playing the fame game. But don't be all 'I'm above that' about it. And, if this is some way to passively protect his private life, why be passive about it? If someone asks him about his private life, he shouldn't give them the 'it's really about the work' spiel, he should tell them that his private life is private and he's not going to talk about it. Why he seems incapable of this direct approach baffles me.

I'm going to the 10:00pm showing of ISTL - late enough? It will just be me and the dodgy TH/EO fans in raincoats. I'll give a spoiler-free review on Monday.

962 Name: Anon : 2016-04-03 21:24 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>960 I thought the remark was maybe about all those terrible reviews for ISTL - which nobody has dared ask him about, I notice. You pick your projects, you do the work and you don't pay attention to people's opinions.

I can respect him for not running away screaming "it's shit and it's not my fault!" Lots of actors get embarrassed about publicising something once it's become clear it is a critical flop, and I find that really unattractive.

Equally it's fine to realise that you get the odd spot and, if left alone, dress like a homeless person, and want to do something about those things. I suppose most actors use stylists and makeup artists to some degree. But the sudden explosion of Team Tom says to me he wants that fame thang real bad right now. So his comments come off badly.

He doesn't really do things by halves does he? It makes me think of the Thor 2 tour - he had a makeup person and Olly and I think someone else travelling with him then, and he was just as mad - turning up to the opening of an envelope all across SE Asia. Yet at SDCC last year he was wearing his own "creations". Maybe he embraces all this only to the extent that the studio pays for his entourage?

But I can see it perhaps being about shit reviews. I think it's just good manners that interviewers don't disparage the product. That or playing nice with studios to maintain future access. I can see No-name online magazine maybe not getting a press pass for another Sony movie if they mention how crap ISTL is.

Quick review of ISTL. The opening scene of Tom signing was the highlight of the movie; it was drastically better than when we first saw that Wheatland video. All the actors did well. Cherry was excellent. The common review highlight about the editing and leaving out key chunks of his life - true. The Luke the Drifter persona was creepy.

970 Name: Anon. : 2016-04-04 16:36 ID:Ep2jQcLc

>>969 I don't know what my best part of it was. I can't even say TH because of the writing.

There were five people in the theatre (one couple, two singles an Yes, it was 10:00 on a Sunday night, but five is still piss-poor for any movie in NYC - no matter day or time. The place itself was fairly busy with only a few empty tables in the cafe and couches in the lounge.

Here's the rundown (SPOILERS - not really). Hank Williams: got married, loved his wife, had a baby, sang some songs, fell in love with a garage door, fought with his wife, did the dirty on his wife, used his hat as an accountant, drank, divorced his wife, got a second wife, had some back pain, died.

Editing - Everything was just chopped up like mince. There's no continuity. A scene would fade out and I'd be left thinking 'What did I get from that? How does this fit in with the story?' And then it would jump to a completely new, unrelated scene without any context from the previous one/s. The faux interviews and home movies don't really pull the story together - if they were even meant to. It's just a composite of scenes with no transition. This is worse at the start and gets better mid-movie.

Writing - God Almighty! I was cringing at nearly every section of dialogue. People didn't speak like that in the 1940/50s - people don't speak like that today. And surprise, surprise, the dialogue has no transition/flow - just like the editing. It jumps all over the place too.

Weather - Watch what MA does with weather and the story. It's a little hokey, but it's one of the few things that actually adds some depth to the movie.

Pace: Weird. So slow mostly (two hours seems like three). There are parts with momentum, but mostly it just drags.

Performances: THEO work with what they've got. Those of you who have trouble with the accents...you're not going to make it! Both TH and EO's voices started to drive me crazy at around the one hour mark. The crap dialogue doesn't help. They do have chemistry in that you believe the romantic parts and you believe their fights. Their performances are so heartfelt, you can tell they both pulled out all the stops acting wise and are just as let down by the script/editing as the audience. Despite her annoying character, at the end I felt more for Audrey than Hank - he didn't do right by her! TH may have sympathy for HW, but I didn't. TH's singing was very good as Whats said. They should have anchored the story around the songs/stage performances more.

Overall: To paraphrase the announcer at the end, 'This is the hardest thing I've ever had to say...you just wasted 15 bucks, 3 mini bottles of Chardonnay and two hours of your life on this movie.'

>>970 No, but tell us how you really felt.

Sob. What a waste of a good cast and a great life story/music.

None of this surprises me. Whenever MA has been able to wrest the mic away from TH (and apparently at the SF q&a, TH quite literally tried to snatch it off him!) he has said three things. First, he has no idea why HW was a musical genius. Second, he wanted to step away from the tried and tested magic of chronological storytelling. Third, that he was more interested in the man than the music. It seems that when you combine these three factors, what you end up with is anecdote soup.

And TH doesn't even look cute in the pics I have seen. It's out in the UK on 6 May. I need to steel myself to be a good fangirl.

Speaking of TH wresting the mic from MA, take a look at the link I posted yesterday to the Bay Area interview.

Then at 5.30 he loses the will to live and starts flirting with the camera!

https://twitter(.)com/BAFTALA/status/717064057543479296 Seems he's back in LA.

Has he crossed the country twice in two weeks? Is that right, I can't remember. Either way, he'll do it again as he's due in NYC next week for TimesTalk and Tribeca.

979 Name: anonsy : 2016-04-05 03:13 ID:V6C+Feoq

>>978 And then he'll be back on the east coast in a week for more Night Manager promo, right? He's going to need a week to sleep off the jet lag when this is over.

>>973 They are beasts. :) Poor guy - who signed him up for that show? Bad decision. I fear it was made months ago, before the poor reception at TIFF.

>>970 yes, the writing could have been better - I'm being very generous here - especially when Luke the Drifter made an appearance. That was cringe-worthy. The people next to me laughed.

>>977>>981 Torrilla had a gif of Keith and Nicole clapping, with TH a little bespectacled blot on the horizon - looking more than a bit uncomfortable.

Unfortunately, I suspect this was a relatively recently booked gig. Before TIFF the plan was for the movie to be released in September, all the publicity done at that time, with hopes of Oscar nominations this February. Back in July/August last year there would be no perceived need to book TH to appear at an awards ceremony in April, way after the movie had been released and all the acting awards ceremonies were done and dusted. My guess is that this was booked more recently as part of the March/April publicity tsunami. No get out for it being a bad decision!

984 Name: Anon : 2016-04-05 09:55 ID:qAvx5iXW

I felt a bit sorry for him. There were pics of him milling around on the RC with all the other country d listers looking a bit lost. They also interviewed him and asked who he most wanted to see perform, and he had obviously got no idea! It must be pretty grim to attend a 3h award ceremony for music you know nothing about on your own, and have to make polite chat with people who don't know who you are, or who think your project sucked. It must be a lonely life at times. I'm not sure he's the type to fill his hotel room with Las Vegas hookers (looking at you, Prince Harry!).

OT: Nicole got the idiom right - she was rocking a 40-year old ex Southern belle Steel Magnolia meets gothic bride look. Sequins and a lot of net. Not at all her Oscar RC look!

Is he having a pants on fire moment here? I am sure he said Thor 3 was the end but here he is a touch more coy: http://youtu.be/gLKR7YURSno

986 Name: Anon : 2016-04-05 10:18 ID:qAvx5iXW

Oh yes, he did: Thor 3 "will be my last time out of the gate." http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/03/29/tom-hiddleston-on-his-bond-moment-in-the-night-manager-finale-and-loki-s-future.html

He'd make a terrible as Anon. said.

Politician. My typing on the mobile is so poor, sorry.

>>984 With nearly 12M viewers in the only demographic possibly interested in paying see this turkey (dedicated fans aside- I admire your gumption), I'd say TH willingly threw himself on the grenade. I've never seen him break into such as sweat as when he presented the award. He was a hot mess.
It was the country music equivalent of Loki at Comic-Con; such a company man. Is it arse- sucking or desperate self promotion or is he really just too nice to say no?
>>985 That's some serious backpedaling. Oopsie

>>989 It is interesting. Thank you for linking.

That tweet is easy to search for because of the misspelling of EO's name. It has either been deleted, or it is not the tweet referred to on here, and someone has manufactured it after reading about it here or at the bicycle (probably with a view to trolling for followers for manufactured gossip to come). I see that the blog was only created on 26.03....

Anon. actually saw the tweet. Maybe she can shed some light?

991 Name: anonsy : 2016-04-05 15:27 ID:V6C+Feoq

>>989 So the tweeter is a "bona fide LA resident who works in showbiz" but only recognized/mentioned EO and not Tom. EO must have been making out with Marc Abraham then. ;)

992 Name: Anon. : 2016-04-05 15:40 ID:YhVcERsm

>>983 Awwww. I bet he would have loved to be next to Nic. He could do his Ozzie accent for her.

>>983 I'm not going to cry for Argentina. He's got to play the promo game - even if it's a dirty one. He'll probably spin it in his usual overenthusiastic manner and look on it as money in the experience bank.

I hope he got a hooker...maybe she'll sell her story and we'll get all the goss! Or, maybe a Dolly, Katy and TH threesome. Yes! I don't even care that it probably didn't happen, I want Star and The Sun to fabricate it.

993 Name: Anon. : 2016-04-05 16:04 ID:YhVcERsm

>>990 That's the one I saw. If it's no longer there, then she erased it.

>>991 I love that the tumblr got the Latin right - no 'bone fide' which you usually see. Like a good investigator I checked her other tweets when I first saw this one. She does live in LA and seems to write for tv shows. If you think about it, she would probably recognize EO (maybe she's met/seen her at events, maybe they live in the same neighborhood) but recognizing TH is less likely. He's just not that well known, cf. seating for ACM awards!

>>990 Yeah, it seems late to the party, but maybe there's more THEO stuff coming, maybe THEOAnon's got an inside track. Maybe EO knows how to work tumblr!

And now you all know my researcher secret! A supervisor once said to me 'Look for the mistakes first. Those are always the most interesting.' Two of the EO Hawaii tweets that I saw came out of a tag with her name spelled incorrectly. The 'hiddlestone' tag also throws up something good now and then.

This matches up with the twitter posts I saw about EO in Hawaii. I didn't see any IG posts but the tweets I saw were from times other than mid-November/laser tag weekend. I wonder if she has these too.

995 Name: Kate : 2016-04-05 18:20 ID:+nTuteQa

>>994

But the source is wrong - they met long before they started work on ISTL. So I call bullshit.

996 Name: Anon : 2016-04-05 18:33 ID:VjvKiEA1

>>994 >>995

The source doesn't say they met in 2014. The journalist does.

Anyway the point I think Anon is making is that the substantive part of the story - EO seen several times in Hawaii - and the blogger's comment are both consistent with what she saw on Twitter. Maybe the source is a complete fabrication and stumbled on the truth by accident, but there appears to be some independent evidence that the underlying facts are true.

997 Name: anonsy : 2016-04-05 18:53 ID:V6C+Feoq

>>993 I've been to her tumblr, and I really think she would have recognized Tom. It still doesn't prove anything either way, though.

>>994 We already know they don't "get together as much as possible" and it's pretty widespread on the internet at this point that EO was in Hawaii. I don't think this "source" has any more valid information than the "source" that said EO dumped TH to focus on her career, or the "source" that said TH dumped EO so he could sleep around during SI filming.

>>988 I think often 'meet' is Hollywood speak for 'worked together.' Sure, they actually met back in 2011, but that was a fairly brief, transitory meeting at an audition and if they only saw each other in passing - at events and the like - then working together on ISTL might be considered a proper meeting.

Either way, as Anon said, it's OK mag: the source may be correct buy the author did a shit job of background checking.

1000 Name: Anon. : 2016-04-05 20:35 ID:YhVcERsm

>>997 You've been to her tumblr or her twitter? It's easy enough to find her twitter now with the responses un-redacted. THEOANon needs to do a better job of protecting her sources.

I can't say if she'd recognize TH. As I recall, she seemed very TV focused, so not recognizing TH wouldn't be unlikely. Maybe she even got the EO sighting wrong - who's to say?
