Thread to talk about the actor Tom Hiddleston

>>800 I get the impression that she is tumblr's lilacflowers. She mostly has a vested interest in showing that she is more clever than anyone else, bossing everybody about as to what to think, and trying to show she doesn't follow the herd.

802 Name: Anon. : 2016-07-23 17:50 ID:kuol1l8b

>>801 'Awshucks, I'm just different, I'm an outsider, I'm special, and brilliant. People should listen to me, take notes and follow after me.'

Bet she has a lot of non-tumblr friends. Does she even have tumblr friends?

Who's lilacflowers? Is that Crazy Question girl?

>>799 Thank you. This may be my route. It will be easier to read about any madness than watch it - live or taped.

803 Name: Anon : 2016-07-23 17:59 ID:zRGlmuDi

>>802 No, lilacflowers is Celebitchy's veranda woman. She is the one who screamed "they said they weren't dating so THEY'RE NOT DATING, OK" a lot about THEO. She is slowly unraveling now that he has an acknowledged GF: on the one hand she wants to stick the knife into TS, but on the other she knows that doesn't jive with her "I stand above it all" persona. She is tying herself in knots so that TH isn't complicit in any pap strolls. No. The paps would give their collective right testicle for these shots so they follow them everywhere.

804 Name: Anon. : 2016-07-23 18:08 ID:kuol1l8b

>>803 Veranda woman!! For the short time I read CB, that woman and her damn veranda tap danced on my last nerve She thought she was being cute and the welcoming doyenne of the site but was in fact no more than an annoyance to be ignored and scrolled past.

Eye roll. Yes, let's blame the paps so Tayto are allowed to remain clean and innocent babes caught in the vicious net of the media.

>>801 >>802 Yes! Precisely.

>>756>>779>>781>>787>>788 To sum it all up, now that the HF company has come to light, I think it is a relationship of multiple conveniences, including sex (in whatever form and frequency that takes), and then, between continent hopping, became too caught up her glow to notice the scope of her drama, even though he was part of it and could not stop long enough to look at the blow-by-blow out there on the internet. Even if friends were emailing summaries with long pleas to step back, when was he going to take the time to read it before he got to Australia and had a free moment on the set?

I think the trip back to LA and the agent visit was his fall back to Earth, and he's currently contemplating his seemingly ride-or-die status with her.

>>803 Her and the new poster that's clearly a Swifty, KC, both get on my nerves. Veranda lady is literally sitting there pretending to be above it all but you can hear her eye twitching as she types out her "yawn" or "you're doing that sense thing again" I did enjoy how one poster interrupted KC's continuous apologist fawning to tell her TayTo can't be both decent and calculating at once and boy did she start a long winded fluttering and sputtering which was again smacked down by the same poster.

>>805 You know he's just chanting in his head, "She didn't do anything wrong. Taylor Swift said she loves me, okay? Taylor Swift does not lie. She cannot lie."

This is what the shirt means:

818 Name: Anon : 2016-07-23 18:47 ID:zRGlmuDi

>>814 Shoes I think are not new. A relic of "styled by yours truly." I suspect he had to buy the shoes because he could hardly return them after a few wears, unlike the clothes. I think they are the Louboutins. I had fun at the time imagining him screaming "$900? For a pair of shoes???"

819 Name: anonsy : 2016-07-23 18:47 ID:tmvu+J8S

>>815 Oh you're right, it's not a full button down. I didn't look closely enough.

I did notice the wrinkles though. Does he just ball up all his clothing and shove it in his backpack?

Just in time.
I drank all the shots in advance and then some.
'Do you want a shot of home made absinthe' is not a phrase I should embrace.
Just a heads up that my narrative and spelling will be flawed from this point on.

That white henley is hideous. Eseecially TUCKED IN

830 Name: anonsy : 2016-07-23 19:33 ID:tmvu+J8S

This is the shirt I was remembering. Looks too dark to be the same one he's wearing today.

831 Name: Anon : 2016-07-23 19:37 ID:zRGlmuDi

>>830 I think it's the light. It looks almost white in some pics. It's the same one though - good spot! And the reason it looks so crumpled is because it is a cheap version he picked up after the publicity tour instead of keeping the £1000 cashmere one.

That white shirt that burns my retinas is not winning. If it was not tucked in and less reminiscent of the time my father and dog were struck by lightening I would be much more forgiving.
There is nothing designer about this shirt, if it has feelings, it feels regret.

And they're done! He'll relax now, maybe, as Luke will puppet master the interviews with journalists. I'm sure there won't be any personal questions.

Have we seen this yet?

The nominees are referred to as:

  • “Trumbo” Oscar nominee Cranston
  • Benedict Cumberbatch. [...] in 2013 when he won this race for “Sherlock: His Last Vow.”
  • Recent double SAG winner Idris Elba
  • Cuba Gooding Jr. could earn an Emmy to keep company with his 1996 Oscar for “Jerry Maguire.”


  • tabloid headliner Tom Hiddleston

Michael K broke his weekend moratorium to talk about the Wonder Woman trailer:

I am not a superhero nerd at all, but Lynda Carter as WW was one of my glamour icons as a child, so this trailer made me feel this weird thing called emotion and it warmed the blackened ice orb I call a heart. I had to go and look at a picture of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston to feel cold and bitter again.

874 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-07-24 07:29 ID:Heaven


  • I love Levi's innuendo at the start.
  • TH first says he doesn't make plans but here he says he has plans he can't say, make up your mind dude - but seriously I know he does it because it's be bad to say you have nothing lined up.
  • "I sound like your grandfather" in reference to Pokemon Go, but I lol anyway because it reminded me of his dad dancing.
  • Again with Purity! But I get it, he was too busy with tanktops.
  • Randomly, I quite like Levi, he's a great host.
  • Levi "I wear the same clothes every day" TH "I wear the same clothes every day" good joke there.
  • He looked definitely tired, maybe a bit on guard?
  • The panel was very short and boring.

At the end of the day I only guessed half of it, she went with him but only as far as LA.

Does she go back with him to Oz or not? I think she does.

876 Name: Anon : 2016-07-24 08:39 ID:zRGlmuDi

>>874 I found it strangely underpowered. Questions were very dull. The first NerdHQ was anarchic and fun - in a good way. This time I felt almost like the audience was as stressed as he was about the prospect of someone screaming "whattabout TayTay?" All very respectful and anxious and with endless "thank you for coming (when we all thought you were going to bail out because really, who wouldn't)" questions.

877 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-07-24 08:40 ID:XVu0oPjZ

>>871 I was surprised it was as good as it was (for a trailer). Going for SLJ is a good idea.

>>873 He was quieter than usual - he usually dominates an ensemble interview but not today. Maybe you were sensing tension with JVR over the tweets about TS? Still it wasn't as bad as that weird phone call after the Emmy nom.

>>874 I skipped through it because it did seem boring. Zach threw him a softball, but at least Zach is easy on the eyes. It was the end of a long day for Tom - there were a ton of interviews in between the Hall H panel and the interview with Zach, including the autograph signing right before that. 7 -8 hours straight, though he's used to it. Zach probably threw mercy on him by cutting it in half.

In the end, he was in his element and was happily received all day. Jury's still out on that weird autograph.

Who posted in thread #10 about the psychic on YT? They posted another one - start at 10:55 :
-he'll stay until he finds out about Bond - either way
-puts on tinfoil hat and covers TS rumors

>>877 Did the psychic comment on whether TS will return to Australia with Tom?!!

I am going to say no, more out of hope than expectation. Maybe now he has seen freedom!

879 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-07-24 09:57 ID:Heaven

>>876 I think you are right, I read Levi before the panel said no personal questions (I don't know if specifically before TH's panel or in general).

>>877 Yeah, I skipped through as well. Zach is easy on the eye and has a nice sense of humour.

>>877,878 I bet instead he is convinced that since the reception at SDCC was so good, TS is no problem at all and he'll be able to win back the Guardian, Telegraph, Evening Standard NYT and all the rest. We'll know soon enough.

880 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-07-24 09:58 ID:Heaven

While SDCC was happening, TS went to the gym again

881 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-07-24 10:04 ID:XVu0oPjZ

>>878 No comment specifically about them returning to Australia together - the psychic just said they will 'be together' for up to 4-5 months and he will call it quits when the word comes around about Bond, regardless of whether he gets it or not. She called this 'his sacrifice' - like she was referring to this as a contract while he gains attention in the media, and when doesn't need it anymore he's leaving.

"the photo-sharing site Instagram has quietly handed the American singer a unique “tool” that enables her to remove only negative or abusive comments made in response to images she has posted."

“Tom is on another planet to his girlfriend, to such an extent that she’s having to teach him a whole new slang language, how to text in shorthand and how to be cool. It is hilarious because he has been showing everyone on set what he has learnt.”

I don't knwo what's the reputation of this website, but this is sadder than the dad dancing and probably an embarrassment to watch. But it explains the use of emojis of a sudden.

However this has a horrible ring of plausibility: him being obsessed and her being hysterical. Good spot on linking this to the sudden use of emojis.

"I don't know, it comes down to being authentic," he says. "Everything you do you have to make sure you truly believe in it and as long as you know that, it doesn't matter what anyone else says about it because the nature of being a public figure is that everyone will have an opinion about anything you do, and as long as you know why you’ve done something and you've committed to it with authenticity then you're okay."

A simple "I love her" would have been shorter and more authentic

I can't even begin to deal with this. So: as long as you authentically believe that your private life should remain sacred, it's ok to say that in an interview and then later do a pap stroll, provided that the pap stroll is also authentic. It's also OK to authentically decide to release fakely candid photos of yourself using the paparazzi or your friends' instagrams.

>>888 I don't think this is about TS, necessarily. It would have been nice to hear the actual question that was asked.

This was the lead-in sentence: So how is Hiddleston handling all this new attention in several different areas? Can we then assume the question was 'How are you handling all the extra attention this summer?' If it was something like that - the relationship with TS being hinted at - then isn't this his standard response to questions about fame and attention and gossip?

897 Name: Anon : 2016-07-24 15:05 ID:zRGlmuDi

And another thing: how does that jive with dating one of the most inauthentic women on the planet? Or with her decision to lie about the extent of her knowledge of "Famous"?

898 Name: anonsy : 2016-07-24 15:05 ID:tmvu+J8S
