A twitter vid about why TH doesn't use his twitter. The answer won't surprise anyone.

203 Name: Anon : 2016-02-27 14:41 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>202 Ah yes. The work [the nutjobs]. Although he also said, more interestingly to my view, that a NY resolution for 2015 had been to spend less time living electronically. His phone was pretty ubiquitous prior to this time.

204 Name: Anon, : 2016-02-27 14:48 ID:zh0XS7x6

>>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?

OT - I just had a pop-tart and cold leftover brussels sprouts for breakfast. My fiancé looked at me with disgust, shook his head and left for work. I jokingly texted him to ask if he was still planning on marrying me. His reply: Yes but need to work on breakfast habits.

207 Name: Anon : 2016-02-27 15:28 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>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.

210 Name: Anon : 2016-02-27 15:54 ID:qAvx5iXW

"hate from elsewhere."

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

>>202 And there is a fan comment from 'Emerald Hiddleston' is still too self-obsessed to get the point, or else it's trolling.

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.

212 Name: Anon : 2016-02-27 23:42 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>211 I think a lot of them are (cf my earlier comments re demographic at the Nuffield talk, either teenagers or retirees). We are quite unusual in being in our 30s, married/partnered/divorced. 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?

218 Name: Anon : 2016-02-28 20:32 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>215 My apologies:


Tension: flaccid (women with little dogs, big secrets and dodgy foreign accents always meet the same fate in le Carre)
Plot: five year old level (see above)
Bromance: McKellen/Stewart (stargazing! Musing on infinity! Sharing a cigarette after!)
TH is: shirtless and pretending to be naked but we saw the white boxers, oh yes.

219 Name: Anon : 2016-02-28 20:35 ID:qAvx5iXW


PS Brie has been at a lot of things and you would expect TH to have been at some of them, assuming they flew into LA together, which seems likely if they both took time off.

220 Name: anonsy : 2016-02-28 20:37 ID:V6C+Feoq

>>217 This was posted 12 hours ago. Not sure exactly when it's from, but no Brie so probably the last couple days.

221 Name: anonsy : 2016-02-28 20:42 ID:V6C+Feoq

>>220 Here's a source dated the 26th:

So in theory he could still have flown into LA for the Oscars, though it looks as though Olly is still in Vietnam. I think we'd have had an airport sighting or two by now, though. I'm going to vote no on Oscar Tom.

222 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-28 20:47 ID:gbld1Z3b

>>221 VP Joe Biden is presenting...have we ever seen those two in the same room? Hmmmm.

223 Name: Anon : 2016-02-28 20:52 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>221 - good sleuthing skills!

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.

Anon's patent spoiler-free review, ep2:

Tension: taut as a TH tummy muscle.
Plot: as twisty as a twisty turny thing (sorry, I do still think of Blackadder whenever I see Hugh Laurie).
Bromance: HL tucks TH up in bed, but I think it may turn a bit 50 Shades later on.
TH is: shirtless and trouserless but not pantless; as to the promised bare bum scene, who the hell knows because although he was showering under a waterfall, this scene was filmed from space.

225 Name: Anon : 2016-02-28 22:22 ID:qAvx5iXW

PS and Torrilla has already screencapped the underpants scene. It is 6.20am in Beijing. She is a dedicated woman.

226 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-29 02:04 ID:gbld1Z3b

Number of biscuit consumption scenes: 1
Number of times TH had something powerful and purring between his legs: 4 (it was a motorcycle!)
Number of times TH beat up someone convincingly: 1
Number of times TH beat up someone unconvincingly: 2 (he'll need to work on that if he wants a shot at Bond)
Number of close up shots of TH's eye: 1,389 (again!)
Number of sex scenes: 1 (length: 3 nanoseconds)
Number of shirtless scenes: too few - he shouldn't be allowed to wear shirts. Let's get on this, Parliament
Number of sauce pan attacks: 1 (not the face!)
Number of times TH had a face like raw hamburger but perfectly coiffed hair: 1
Number on the TH's ass-o-meter scale: 2.6 (I think it was a butt and I think it was TH and it was in a waterfall, but too little and too far away)
Number of times my panties flew across the room after TH whispered 'shhh, shhh, shhh' and slapped a trick: 1

OC: B+ (that hotel scene was a little hammy)
HL: B+

No Oscars Tom, as far as I can see. At any rate, not on tumblr, which is full of people who stayed up the whole night to watch the predictable occur.

230 Name: anonymous : 2016-02-29 09:56 ID:w70e/Vud

>>229 Oscar presenters were announced ages ago, and given that he has no connection with the films being honoured this year, assume that he is enjoying Vietnam.. or South Sudan.

Maybe next year.

231 Name: Anon : 2016-02-29 10:39 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>230 There was a suggestion on twitter and in the Vietnamese press that he might attend. We discussed this above and thought it was unlikely for the reasons you give (>>216>>217), but I thought I would post to confirm he indeed didn't attend!

232 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-02-29 13:47 ID:djMO/r19

Apparently, the reports of him attending the Oscars were due to poor translation skills from the Vietnamese article.

234 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-29 19:09 ID:gbld1Z3b

>>230 >>231 Presenters don't necessarily need to be connected to a film to be invited. 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.

Overall, it was back-slapping fest you'd expect from the Oscars.

235 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-29 19:17 ID:gbld1Z3b

240 Name: Anon : 2016-02-29 22:13 ID:qAvx5iXW

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?

241 Name: Anon : 2016-02-29 22:13 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>239 He is wearing the hat in the portrait. Possibly he is wearing THE hat.

242 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-29 22:16 ID:Yr/chMz3

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.

243 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-29 22:21 ID:Yr/chMz3

>>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).

244 Name: Anon : 2016-02-29 22:22 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>242 No idea. Was he too a soldier and a spy? Not in uniform while spying , did on the job, put uniform back on...?

245 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-29 22:23 ID:Yr/chMz3

>>243 I should say that 'crew' probably extends to directors, producers, DP. I don't think the boom mic guy is suiting up.

246 Name: Anon : 2016-02-29 22:27 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>243 in the old days you used to see people like Jack Nicholson, Al Pacino and Tom Cruise in the audience even if they weren't nominated or presenting. I felt like there was hardly anybody of that calibrate there. Not even George and SpellingMistake Clooney.

247 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-29 22:27 ID:Yr/chMz3

>>244 Yes, his father was 'undercover in Northern Ireland' and served in the same regiment as JP. I thought maybe it was the undercover thing: that he was always out of uniform (as an agent) and thus only wore it at his funeral, but that sounds a strange thing to say.

248 Name: Anon : 2016-02-29 22:27 ID:qAvx5iXW

CALIBRE, Apple spellcheck.

249 Name: Anon : 2016-02-29 22:28 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>247 I think we are on the same wavelength. That must be what Burr means.

250 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-01 00:53 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>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.

251 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-01 01:19 ID:Yr/chMz3


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!

252 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-01 02:09 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>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.

253 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-01 02:38 ID:Yr/chMz3

>>252 Lord. I'm going to pass because just your summary makes it sound ridonkulous. I probably couldn't handle the real thing. Past lives? Sure. She's as delusional as Miss Unrelated who thought she had a Vulcan mind-meld with TH and he wanted her to continue with her mad question.

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.

257 Name: anonymous : 2016-03-01 07:12 ID:w70e/Vud


TBH, I respect him all the more so for not turning up for a nice bit of self-promotion at the opening of every envelope ..even if that envelope has "Academy of Motion Pictures" on the front of it.

It'll probably turn out in six more that he's done another low key UNICEF trip - calling it now.

No public congrats (am sure there was a big private one) for Brie's success either on twitter .. he really is distancing himself away from the fans.

258 Name: Anon : 2016-03-01 08:24 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>252 One can take or leave the astrology (it is an astrology blog after all!!) but otherwise she is pretty normal. Someone posted a long rambling comment about how they weren't surprised he left tumblr because a great artist cannot be distracted by their audience. She responded "Or my favourite theory: he realised that some of the fanbase who were trying to contact him 24/7 were batshit-crazy."

BTW reading some of the comments from anons on her blog about the q&a debacle I am now almost certain that we get read a lot.

259 Name: Anon : 2016-03-01 08:25 ID:qAvx5iXW

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.

267 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-01 23:53 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>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. But I have no interest or faith in astrology, so I'm not her target audience anyway.

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

>>268 Yep, that sounds like most astrology adherents I know. Fact and reality often fall at the wayside when they don't jive with charts and past lives.

I think it's a bit of fun like most people, but I don't think it gives us anymore insight into TH than what shows up on other gossip blogs.

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.

>>270 People are repeating things. Remember I jokingly called the crazy Berlinale question lady's 2000-word justification her apologia pro vita sua? Not a phrase I saw widely bandied around at the time (or in life generally!). Well, somebody else just referred to it as an "apologia" in inverted commas. It could of course be totally coincidental.

>>271 Well she still lives round there, allegedly!

I was thinking last night that a hen party at a ComicCon would be amazing! Much better than whatever boring nonsense I did. Second only to a trip to Vegas or the dog track (50p each way bets available in London- how can you resist?).

>>261 Tumblr is also saying it is 500 bucks for a meet and greet, with photo op, autograph, "exclusive lithograph" (aka "print"), guaranteed seat at the Avengers q&a plus the right to ask whatever crazy ass question you want (ok I made some of the last part up).

Am I the only one who would be mortifyingly embarrassed to meet TH in circs where he knew I had paid $500 for the privilege? Also for that price, seriously I would expect sex. Or at least nudity.

>>277 exactly, I'd be really embarrassed. It would be such an odd experience, I think.

Speaking of things waving at one from one's tumblr dash:

I have identified that it is from the French HR trailer. Of course it is:

281 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-02 21:40 ID:Ep2jQcLc

He struck me as a modesty sock sort of guy. I was wrong. Clap for TH. Braver than I!

What going on at tumblr? Is it chaos? Are the 'Give me that dick pic' group at war with the 'He isn't an object!' group?

Looks, as my boy says, WNL (within normal limits). It doesn't appear to be the monster of tumblr lore. Maybe a grower not a shower?

282 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-02 21:45 ID:Ep2jQcLc

>>280 Yeah, twitter caught on to its origins very quickly. Right now all of twitter is in LOVE with France.

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.

Wasn't Shame close to getting a NC-17 rating because of The Fassy?

>>275 So, a few possibilities:

  1. you have a 'Single White Female' situation going on in cyberspace, and someone is just parroting you because they want to be you
  2. they recognize you're sensible and intelligent and they're quoting you to appear intelligent themselves

3.Someone out there is a big-time Newman scholar...who also submits anons to a TH specific astrology blog (unlikely!)

>>281 I bet he uses the sock for sex scenes.

285 Name: Anon : 2016-03-02 21:55 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>281 We may not be getting an accurate view because when they sit with their knees up it makes the old man point upwards due to pressure of other objects from below (if you know what I mean!). I think we are getting a telescoped view. The perspective is all wrong. And the glimpse is so brief!

That said I have always thought the visible bulge was mostly balls (or so the famous Cannes blue suit pics suggested- you could actually see their individual outline, the shameless boy!).

286 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-02 21:56 ID:Ep2jQcLc

>>278 Some of those con. photos are funny or clever (I've seen some great ones with Marvel stars, especially Hayley Atwell), but you're right, most seem uncomfortable and stiff - because of course they would be: two/three total strangers are taking a picture together.

287 Name: Anon : 2016-03-02 21:58 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>283 One always worries that everyone else immediately says it's 3) and that I am big-headed for assuming that we are the smartest, wittiest fans in the Hiddlesphere (we are!! We are!!!!).

288 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-02 21:59 ID:Ep2jQcLc

>>284 Given his propensity for excitement boners, I would wager on a modest cage!

289 Name: Anon : 2016-03-02 22:00 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>286 one thing in those photos definitely won't be stiff. I imagine the poor hiddleconda retreats into the body cavity in sheer terror at proximity of so many nutty fangirls

290 Name: Anon : 2016-03-02 22:03 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>284 I bet he does. I think this was an unintended (by him) flash which someone has put in the trailer as a joke. It is very quick if not slowed down and I imagine he thought he hadn't flashed.

291 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-02 22:10 ID:Ep2jQcLc

>>285 I think we might be getting a decent view of what he's got - but that's just me. I'll see if I can stage an experiment later: just lay down naked on the bed, darling, while I accidentally drop this glass near you. Ignore the camera! This is research!

292 Name: Anon : 2016-03-02 22:18 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>291 Hahaha! It is so fleeting I am not sure I would call it a decent view. Anyway they can vary so muc in size that it's rarely a fair comparison. I bet Fassy had the set heated to 100 degrees so his boy swung free. I also read that when filming the nude wrestling scene in Women in Love, Oliver Reed vanished for some "quiet time" before each take to ensure he was shown to his full advantage!!!!!

293 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-02 22:25 ID:Ep2jQcLc

>>289 Not to be too nannyish, but were I TH, I would be bricking it at the prospect of these photos. What are some fans going to ask him to do? 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....

294 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-02 22:27 ID:Xfxv9xZA

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!

295 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-02 22:30 ID:Ep2jQcLc

>>292 I was just thinking about that story! I was saying to myself, TH needed to do a better job of preparing little TH for his debut - just like OR! I think both OR and AR agreed NOT to fiddle before filming, but then OR didn't follow through on the bargain and AR was not happy!

296 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-02 22:35 ID:Ep2jQcLc

I think this gif is being retweeted mmore thanhis actual tweet about HR. I wonder if he tweeted when he realized his dinky was making the rounds, you know, a quick reminder that HR isn't about The Willy, but The Work.

297 Name: Anon : 2016-03-02 22:40 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>294 I feel kind of sorry for him. It does feel like he thought it was so fleeting that he didn't need a sock (she says having viewed it 4,872 times since discovering it). 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.

298 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-02 23:48 ID:Ep2jQcLc


Seems like we're going to get TH playing tennis in TNM. That shirt of his has gotten the memo.

299 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-02 23:59 ID:Ep2jQcLc

A little head-to-head between TH and James Norton (who doesn't ring my bell, but was/is great in Happy Valley).

Apparently, TH was JN's mentor at RADA, but TH was very hard to get a hold of as a mentor.

And, Tatler got their Latin wrong. O tempora, o mores.

>>297 I've been using that frame by frame post to answer the longstanding question: is he or isn't he cut? It would seem that as a European born man he would not be. Numerous bulge shots in tight suit trousers say he is not. And on the other side of the argument, of course the byke woman 'knows' he is circumsised because of her 'sources.'
