Thread to talk about the actor Tom Hiddleston

>>400 Friday!! I am very excited about this. It's being screened at the British Library. Ben Wheatley and one of Ballard's daughters will be there for a q&a afterwards.

My review will probably go something like this:

>>398 Are they like the Elle "acting" award that EO's publicist bought for her? Eheheheheh....

I haven't heard of them, tho country music is not really my thing.

When is Premiere: The Return (starring better editing)?

>>399 There is a new clip of ISTL in which Hank refers to the sex act as "bronco ridin' ". I feel unable to link to this for quality monitoring purposes. If this is a sample of the script I am unsurprised that it bombed.

>>401 Apparently, unlike CP, the cunnilingus isn't implied - yee-haw (to steal a phrase from another of his movies)!!!

I think Roger Ebert once wrote a similar review.

407 Name: anonsy : 2016-03-09 21:45 ID:mrQMnCMH

Am I the only one really turned off by Tom's southern accent? Not that it's bad technically, I just don't find Southern Tom sexy. At all.

>>406 I have to say that face down in someone else's minge is not my optimum viewing pleasure. Apart from anything else the naughty bits will be pressed into the mattress and thereby obscured...!

>>406 I seem to remember the phrase "slurping noises" being used in a Tumblr or Twitter review by someone who saw a TIFF screening.

>>403 That's some red hot chemistry. No wonder EO hid her face behind her purse scarf. Just kidding! But seriously, that tag line though, it's almost like they're trying to sell a sextape and not a proper movie lol

411 Name: Anon : 2016-03-09 21:50 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>407 No I am turned off by it as well. I find it almost as embarrassing as the sangin'. The whole thing feels like a party trick to me. He sings! He plays guitar! He talks funny! I hate self-conscious acting and everything I have seen feels very self-conscious, possibly because so far from his experience.

>>406>>409 Yeah I've heard you can HEAR Tom going down on Sienna. And lots of grunting and moaning and a distinct "come" order from Laing in the scene with Helen. So I've heard!

415 Name: anonsy : 2016-03-09 21:53 ID:mrQMnCMH

>>410 For me the best chemistry Tom's had with an actress has been OLLA with Tilda Swinton. I loved them together.

416 Name: Anon : 2016-03-09 21:56 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>415 Yes! They were all over each other at the premiere at Cannes. If she weren't 50-something they'd have made very gorgeous, slightly alien-looking babies.

417 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-09 21:57 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>415 Same here. I loved them together as Adam and Eve. That's the chemistry I'd expect a loving husband and wife to have. Then again Hank cheated a ton so maybe that limp fish chemistry is speaking to why he decided to "bronco ride" others lol though I don't think that's the angle SPC is going for here lol

I sometimes drink before I go to movies - just to make them more palatable. I did it before The Revenant (I'm not a LdC fan but the boy wanted to see it); I had 2 good sized glasses of wine before and a mini bottle while there. I managed it.

ISTL might be a three glass-er if it's as cornball as that clip.

>>419 A friend and I once sneaked a bottle of cheap fizzy rose into a Harry Potter movie and drank it out of paper cups like winos. We both then fell soundly asleep, not to stir till the credits rolled...

421 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-09 23:10 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>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 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-09 23:32 ID:x72+GDoH

>>407 >>411 >>421 I'm more turned off by how skinny he is, how giant his head looks in comparison and his dark hair which is plastered to his head.

Bad movie, bad performance - okay, but it's painful not to then have eye-candy to make up for the badness.

425 Name: Anon : 2016-03-09 23:37 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>421 Anyone who has seen The Pirate Fairy (looking at you, Anon.!) or the BTS singing clips knows He Just Can't Sing.

I think i mentioned this previously but at Nuffield he said that in year 2 of RADA really homes in on the skill you lacked and made you do it relentlessly (eg verse speaking, stage fighting or whatever). Sam Hodges asked what his weak spot was and he refused to say!!!! I bet it was singing. I bet you any money.

426 Name: Anon : 2016-03-09 23:44 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>424 Remember him at the ES Awards in Nov 14? Bad hair, bad skin, flat bum (he was constantly hoisting his suit trousers up). Even at the BAFTAs in Feb he still had a crap hairdo and that awful bristly beard that I HATE. Contrast with the golden haired muscle bound Adonis we see a year later...

427 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-10 00:13 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>422 Yeah, I remember MA talking about TH wanting a hundred retakes. I think it might have been more of a Superman complex because Tom may have felt he knows directing better since he's worked with Woody Allen and Spielberg and Branagh.

>>423 Tom overestimated ISTL's potential and when it didn't seem it was going the way he'd envisioned, I'm sure him and MA butted heads creatively many times while filming.

428 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-10 00:27 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>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.

429 Name: Anonon : 2016-03-10 01:18 ID:3DNcgmlx

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

430 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-10 03:11 ID:pmpOImse

>>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.

431 Name: anonsy : 2016-03-10 03:23 ID:jEBzHlgG

>>430 A friend of mine gave me The Pirate Fairy as a gag gift, so I watched it. There was a lot of alcohol involved.

432 Name: Anonon : 2016-03-10 03:47 ID:3DNcgmlx

Imagine if ISTL was turned into a Broadway musical. EO and TH hitting all the flat notes as they romp their way through a choreographed bronco ride. Oh, the chemistry!
I hope I never see TPF. Ever. I'm sure I would no longer be a fan. Alcohol wouldn't be enough to get me through. Maybe psychedelics.. ooo look at the pretty fairies

433 Name: Anon : 2016-03-10 08:08 ID:qAvx5iXW

All of this. All of it. He believes he can sing. He probably believes that the RADA immersion therapy cured him. He can't. It didn't. When I watched this clip my buttocks clenched so tightly my whole bum almost disappeared:

434 Name: N8Anon : 2016-03-10 08:31 ID:m0Zddaoc

I went to the High Rise preview and Q&A at Curzon Soho last night. I'd been so caught up in Jonathan Pine that I'd completely forgotten about our wonderful Dr. Laing.

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.

435 Name: Anon : 2016-03-10 08:38 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>434 I saw a few tweets of BW's answers and it looked really interesting. I am going tomorrow to the showing at the BL and I can't wait! I was wondering what the audience demographic would be. Maybe without Tom there you get actual film fans and non-mad Tom fans.

436 Name: N8Anon : 2016-03-10 09:01 ID:m0Zddaoc

>>435 Yeah, it was pretty mixed, fairly typical of the usual audience you'd get at that cinema. There were a couple of hard core fans on the front row. I'd have loved to go to the British Library event, just such an interesting venue for starters. Hope you have a great time :-)

437 Name: Anon : 2016-03-10 09:07 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>436 It's where the JG Ballard archive is held, apparently. They are having a whole day of Ballard lectures and such on Monday and showing the film again.

438 Name: N8Anon : 2016-03-10 09:14 ID:m0Zddaoc

>>437 I heard about that, yes, sounds brilliant. They were promoting it last night too. I'd totally have didn't have my bloody in-laws staying with me! Grrrr!

439 Name: Anon : 2016-03-10 09:24 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>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

>>441 I agree. I just can't get enthused about ISTL at all. I know it shouldn't matter, but for me, it is overshadowed by the whole THEO debacle. I felt really uncomfortable watching the new clip that came out last night, like a bit of grubby voyeurism.

443 Name: Anon : 2016-03-10 13:27 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>442 It matters because somebody somewhere made it matter, wit their idiotic leaks to the press about the affair.

I'd be interested to know whether as a fellow Londoner you think that Pursegate was a chance encounter.

444 Name: Anon : 2016-03-10 13:52 ID:qAvx5iXW

Apparently some twit from The Times is telling the 'posh totty' to put their shirts on.

Shut yer face, shut yer damn face!! Mr. Hiddleston may take off his shirt whenever he wants.

The cheek of some people.

447 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-10 23:34 ID:q73+7BNv

I missed this little star in the DM. An article rating the shirtless totty appearing on tv.

For those of you not wanting to click through, here's TH's bit:

The charmer tipped to be 007
Tom Hiddleston attended the prestigious Dragon School in Oxford, before moving on to Eton. Tom, now 35, continued to Pembroke College, Cambridge, where he earned a double first in Classics.
He is 6ft 2in, lean as a whippet and equipped with timeless, leading-man qualities: clear blue eyes and a magnetic appeal. In the running to be the next James Bond, his education has given him impeccable manners, obvious intelligence and an appetite for hard work.

Posh Rating: Three stars
Hates being called posh. His father, James, a physical chemist, was a self-made man who wanted to give his son the best education money could buy. He is the great-great-grandson of food producer Sir Edmund Vestey.

Shirt Off Rating: Five stars
Tall and lean, a hard-packed physique with defined muscles, he could be sculpted from peeled bamboo. Some viewers claimed to have fainted at the sight of Tom in his trunks.

448 Name: anonsy : 2016-03-11 00:28 ID:fP9XNw8F

>>446 Don't listen to them, Tom! Take off your shirt! For... equality! Yeah, equality! Oh, and, uh... feminism! Yes, that's it! Feminism.

449 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-11 00:47 ID:q73+7BNv

>>448 I'd almost forgotten about that absolute crock he'd peddled during CP promo. Feminist icons: Pankhurst, de Beauvoir, Friedan, TH's ass.

And he can't even sell the 'you need to be naked to have sex' angle because that sad attempt at simulating sex could have been done fully clothed...with the two of them in opposite corners of the room.

>>450 GAHHH! Take that thing back from whence it came! Horrid interview.

>>424 Every time I see a still or clip of him from ISTL with the big head and skinny body I can't help but think of a praying mantis. Ever since his involvement in the movie was announced, I've cringed, especially when I see the singing. The clip wasn't sexy at all. Just, ick. I can't. Can not. I'll wait until it hits cable to watch. (I may eat my words, as my friend wants to see it.)

BTW, speaking of curled toes and clenched buttocks, when is ISTL Premiere Part Deux?

455 Name: NewAnon : 2016-03-11 09:21 ID:Xfxv9xZA

>>454 The shenanigans begin Mar 21st with a Q&A with TH, EO and MA the director. Then the premiere is the next day Mar 22nd. This is all in LA. I don't know if there's going to be anything anywhere else.
>>450 the feminist angle was so forced and annoying. Just the gothic strained sexuality answer would've been fine. Good thing he's pretty!

>>452 Right there with you. When he signed on for ISTL, I've been in the same cringing boat.

TH will be on the Today Show on March 24 (9-10 EST). It's for ISTL, no mention of EO or MA.

There's a theme for the day: My Big Fat Today Wedding. Yeah, I'm not sure either. Maybe someone from the audience will get to marry TH??

469 Name: Anon : 2016-03-12 00:22 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>472 One question about choosing ethnic minority actors. Answer: considered it but no, as the co-op would have vetoed BAME residents. As to class, BW's view is that it was more subtle than upper class, upper floor - Wilder is a documentary film maker but is on lower floor because he is less well-off.

>>475 Round 2!! Round 2 sex is the BEST. Go back! Wake him up (always with the falling asleep after)! Demand that he answer to the name Tom and not get huffy about it!

I expect nothing less from the Daily Fail. Enough incorrect facts to choke King Kong.

OT: The Cloverfield movie was great actually. Scary and funny. John Goodman was excellent. Still wish it had been HR.

On topic: TH's ass!

It look so tiny. I think it's the angle, but it's making me giggle.

482 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-12 03:56 ID:Tv1c2FZO

>>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.

483 Name: anonsy : 2016-03-12 05:07 ID:flg6CzFw

>>481 I was laughing too, between the image of Tom's tiny little bum cheeks and the caption: "Fans are expected to see the X-rated moment Tom reveals his bare buttocks."

(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.'

>>481 The tumblr dash is fulll of this one pic like no one's ever seen the English countryside before.

485 Name: Anon : 2016-03-12 08:11 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>481 >>483 Another pic of TH's bum apparently shot from space! It looks tiny! But, you know, feminism. It's just like when I read Susan Faludi. Errrr.....

>>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.

486 Name: Anon : 2016-03-12 08:16 ID:qAvx5iXW

>>484 Yeah, just looked at tumblr and it has imploded. God knows why as you get a better look in CP - and knowing the BBC this will be all you get (cf trailer of the Sophie scene which revealed all there was).

We never have had a proper bum shot have we? It has been either impeded by trousers at half mast or under a waterfall 3,000 miles away. Such a pity.

487 Name: M : 2016-03-12 08:44 ID:BdWHuebY

It's starting to be annoying to see him so often showing his butt butt :)))

>>464 Perfect synopsis. I concur with all points.

Bottygate is now front page news in the Daily Telegraph! (PS no pic but they considerately publish a spoiler - though we have seen from the pic who he is shagging anyway)

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?"

>>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

>>490 PS he does have a mesmerisingly large and fleshy bum, especially for a skinny guy who runs a lot. There were several scenes in last week's episode of TNM in which his butt cheeks ate his trousers.

495 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-12 22:56 ID:pXrLhSIN

>>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.

>>495 Did you come across Viz magazine while you were on these shores? It used to produce an annual "profanasaurus" including such gems as "hungry arse" and (my personal favourite) "furry bicycle stand" (ladyparts). I was thinking hungry arse all the way through ep3...!!!

Interesting article on the final shoot week of SI

According to Google translate:
'Kong: Skull Island will revolve around the story of an expedition deep into dangerous island to find a kind frontman and legendary serum. Along the way, they will have to cope with outlandish creatures, unusual.'

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.

499 Name: anonsy : 2016-03-13 04:07 ID:V6C+Feoq

>>498 I like Tom's physique in TNM. Coriolanus Tom and SI Tom (from the look of things) are a bit too bulky for my taste, but I'd rather see him bulked up than ISTL levels of skinny.

500 Name: Anon. : 2016-03-13 13:25 ID:3MbB+kJp

>>496 I remember hearing Viz spoken about - spoof articles type of thing - but never read an issue.

The moment when he got up from his sick bed to go see Roper was the 'hungry bottom' moment for me. Typical TH: no underwear probably.
