Thread to talk about the actor Tom Hiddleston

>>595 This should be thrown in the faces of all the nannies out there who say "No one cares about this except gossip sites. His colleagues don't even know/care. His reputation hasn't been damaged, he's more popular now."

Of all the Marvel actors, RDJ would be the most likely to not know. And yet he knows and mocks (albeit gently).

And as gentle as the mock is, when it comes from a colleague, friend, someone you look up to - it stings all the more.

He's on his way! twitter(.)com/TimRoxborogh/status/763148134906068992

And we have no way of knowing if Taylor is too lol

603 Name: NewAnon : 2016-08-09 23:21 ID:1R0DkkPA

>>600 Yeah I think they'll just blast false info and make it easier for Team Taylor to put out more plants to give the relationship more realism lol

>>601 It's forever etched in time and space now. And if RDJ is mocking on social media now I wonder how much he ribs him in person. He's gonna be getting teased about this even when they're no longer together.

606 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-09 23:39 ID:1Gv7ebAj

>>603 If TH knew what was good for him he'd re-instagram (if that's a thing!) that pic and own it.

If he and Luke could come up with a half decent witty retort (I don't think they can), all the better. But just owning his shit would be a start.

607 Name: Sosorry : 2016-08-09 23:49 ID:vYyYDwZ7

Apparently, even tough Team TS is no longer logging the flights of her planes into the websites, you can definitely still track her planes if they are in the air. You just have to search for her tail numbers while she is flying, and you can still follow the plane. Not sure if anyone in the world has the patience to do that though.

608 Name: anonsy : 2016-08-09 23:55 ID:jk4W5Vi7

>>607 Oh I'm sure someone will. One of the ladies on tumblr who will stop at nothing to prove that Hiddleswift is True Love.

610 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-10 00:04 ID:1Gv7ebAj

From the latest TH ONTD thread: "Whenever I see him I always think of a story that my friend who works in the industry told me (somebody told him at a work party). Tom once tried to avoid being seen by some publicist he dated at a pub by climbing out the bathroom window to the beer garden but turns out she was standing right by the windows and it apparently got awkward. Doesn't sound true to me but idk why someone would lie about it lol"

I can believe this. His flight instinct is so strong - avoid conflict, avoid dealing with the situation, avoid, avoid...but it still ends up in awkwardness!!

611 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-10 00:14 ID:yJpq0A3q

>>606 He never comes up with a witty retort to any social media post anymore. He (or Luke) needs to hire a Social Media Analyst; they could hire me.

612 Name: Anonon : 2016-08-10 02:23 ID:dqYXAy71

Speaking of Tom on IG, I found what I'm 99% sure is his private account a while ago and have checked in occasionally to see if the number of followers has changed because they were significantly low (in the 10- 20s). When the first pictures on the rocks emerged he jumped an extra 6 followers. Straight after CC he unfollowed someone and last night as he opened his official account he unfollowed one more person.
Maybe its nothing but when you have less than 30 friends and lose two in the space of two weeks thats usually a sign of a significant fallout.

613 Name: anonsy : 2016-08-10 02:27 ID:jk4W5Vi7

>>612 Any way I can convince you to link to it? Or at least give me a hint? Pretty please!

614 Name: Anonon : 2016-08-10 02:47 ID:dqYXAy71

>>613 I'd be happy to if the crazies didn't read this thread and keep spoiling everything- I promise i'll keep you updated on changes. They are so monumentally daft I bet they would send him a friend request.
Before the Swift fiasco the account was very stagnant and his followers never changed. He only used it to like other people's posts. The number he is following only increases slightly when he's working and thats in the 350- 400 mark. The number of his posts hasn't changed since the filming of SI and thats when I picked up on the account.

616 Name: ?? : 2016-08-10 02:56 ID:ofOKynWp

>>612 That is very interesting.

617 Name: NewAnon : 2016-08-10 04:31 ID:1R0DkkPA

>>612 Wonder if it was his own friends he was burning bridges with over Taylor and their joke of a relationship. Then again if he was always like this, I doubt his friends care. Maybe it was JArthy! Having their umpteenth secret lovers spat.

According to tumblr's flight experts, Tom should be landing tomorrow morning in LA, leaving him with a whole day to pap stroll with Regina George eyeroll Or maybe they'll do their lovers reunion over the weekend for max coverage.

618 Name: Anonon : 2016-08-10 04:54 ID:dqYXAy71

>>612 The timing of the first unfollowing coincides with Luke stepping in and his emergency trip to NY so I doubt its JArthy (surely she would still take him back but wouldn't that be juicy). My guess is a coworker confronted him at CC.

Swifties are guessing TS has sold her plane and replaced it with a bigger pimpmobile that can fly to OZ.
Given that she is untraceable and last seen in NY, a pap stroll in LA will be mandatory to prove the relationship is still alive. If she isn't seen in LA TayTo is officially over. If they do separate gym visits only he's staying in the hotel and if they slut walk holding hands to friendly paps then the future cringe is about to be way too strong.

619 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-10 05:08 ID:yJpq0A3q

>>614 Interesting - I've been checking another account that I thought was his. It's following a different number than the amount you stated, but the list has all the right people he's been in touch with (mostly business) for quite awhile. I'll poke around more.

620 Name: Anonon : 2016-08-10 05:35 ID:dqYXAy71

>>619 I could be wrong about this but if it's a fan, it's an extremely conscientious one. The main telltale sign was that crew members on SI followed this account. They do not follow any fan accounts.
It's completely private so there's no way of seeing who he's friends with, just the numbers. No profile pic, a name you would expect and a very British emoji.
Celeb private accounts are the opposite of their public accounts. A large number of 'following' and a small number of 'followers'

621 Name: NewAnon : 2016-08-10 05:50 ID:1R0DkkPA

>>618 A bigger jet? Just to follow the current boyfriend to Australia? Do the Swifties how scary clingy that makes her sound?

Keeping her jet's movements on lockdown is really an interesting move on her part. I still think it's so she can pretend they're still together by putting out plants. With that said though, I'm prepped for a pap walk tomorrow or over the weekend or every single day from tomorrow til he leaves.

'An image of a 35-year-old man wearing a tank top in the ocean that says “I [Heart] T.S.” in tribute to his mid-20s girlfriend is too funny not to bring up over and over again for at least a year, so maybe just keep circling back to this until Ragnorak comes out next November, RDJ. The joke is going to hold up.'

623 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-08-10 07:09 ID:Heaven

Well, I expected to wake up and find his instagram had millions and millions of followers, the nannies at CB yesterday were super excited about how quickly (yeah right) the amount was increasing, but it stopped at half a million lol
No wonder he invites fans to sit with him and talk, he is that desperate.

RDJ is my hero.

624 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-08-10 07:11 ID:Heaven

>>620 If with this official account he doesn't follow anyone, the idea he has a private one would make sense.

625 Name: Savvy : 2016-08-10 08:53 ID:Kav0moE8

The Instagram account was probably part of his contract with that fashion brand that his girlfriend got him. He followed the brand on Twitter but he'll probably do what Taylor does and post photos to endorse products. She makes a lot of money with that.
I wouldn't be surprised if that Hiddles Fashion Twitter account was run by his publicist pretending to be a fan.

626 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-08-10 11:52 ID:Heaven

"A source close to the pair told me: “Tom and Taylor are 100 per cent still an item.

“They are both focusing on work at the moment but will be back in each other’s company again soon.”

Tom and Taylor have not been seen in public together for 11 days – the longest time they have been apart since I revealed their relationship in June."

627 Name: Anon : 2016-08-10 12:36 ID:HnBAvsLN

>>626 Ho hum. The Sun has to get behind this because it got the "scoop" on the photos. It is hardly going to admit that the "relationship"/contract is over because that makes its exclusive look cheap.

628 Name: Anon : 2016-08-10 12:43 ID:HnBAvsLN

>>625 I don't think that Hiddlesfashion is run by a publicist. It's pretty witty (not a characteristic I associate with Luke!) and snarky about his fashion choices (or lack of them!) and doesn't always have the brands straight away, which it would if it were publicist run. It was also very rude about the I heart TS t shirt (saying we will never mention again that he owns this in addition to the 3 other t shirts he possesses).

I believe I should apologise to Elizabeth Olsen for thinking she was the one to call the paps that infamous date night in London.
Now we know he's the one who wanted to use his private life to become more famous.
And it seems I'm not the only one, judging by some comments at CB. Like these two:

"Lbliss says:
August 10, 2016 at 9:12 am
How can you go from never confirming and quietly dating for a year Elizabeth Olsen to this swifty created hot mess daily media circus? What complete opposites! No one over the age of 20 jumps from one extreme to another like that.

Luca76 says:
August 10, 2016 at 9:17 am
Oh I totally think he would have loved to go public with that relationship too but EO wouldn’t have it. Remember the way she hid her face to the paparazzi when they were caught together while he grinned like a Cheshire Cat ? Hiddleswift’s made for each other partially because they both love the circus. Reminds me a bit of Justin Theroux he is there for the attention and he’s going to use it to his benefit."

631 Name: Savvy : 2016-08-10 13:37 ID:u9o1B1E5

Well, I must say that I don't know who this Justin Theroux is. So, if he's doing the same thing as Hiddleswift to get famous, it's not working.

632 Name: NewAnon : 2016-08-10 15:19 ID:1R0DkkPA

Are Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter still in LA? What if TayTo do a double date pap stroll with them? That will be spectacularly messy for the fans. What on earth would they talk about lol

633 Name: NewAnon : 2016-08-10 16:18 ID:41I9V1sS

Pics of Tom arriving at LAX on Torilla. He's wearing exactly what he wore when he left. You can't tell the difference at all between his arrival and departure lol

634 Name: Savvy : 2016-08-10 16:34 ID:u9o1B1E5

There's also a video. He's not been picked up by TS' people. Probably someone sent by The Night Manager Production company.

636 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-10 17:27 ID:yJpq0A3q

Without the ability to track her plane(s), will become more of a place on which to rely. It's showing pics of her still in NYC as of this morning.

637 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-08-10 17:30 ID:Heaven

>>632 That would be amusing for me because I read CB and there's a particular poster that is in such denials that TH is best friend with Cumberbatch.

638 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-08-10 17:31 ID:Heaven

>>633 And once again that's a lot of luggage for someone who is supposed to stop in LA for a couple of day.

Here's the video

640 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-10 17:37 ID:1Gv7ebAj

>>635 Because it's a Star Mag poll. Not exactly a Newsweek sponsored Gallup poll. The twitter hastag trends they mention are far more meaningful.

>>636 Her fans will still get the deets on her planes. They are that intrusive and stalkery.

Speaking of polls! What do we think? He's hear until at least Friday night.

Yea or nay:

  1. reunion article but no pics
  2. reunion article and pics
  3. proper pap stroll (hand holding, matching, sponsored outfits, etc)
  4. no reunion...true love is DEAD!

643 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-08-10 17:50 ID:Heaven

I read that not anyone can change things in wiki pages, particularly celeb pages, but I'm not sure.
Anyway, TH's wiki page in the personal life section mentions that he confirmed he is in a relationship in TS.

644 Name: anonsy : 2016-08-10 18:10 ID:jk4W5Vi7

>>643 I read that in TOD before she deleted, but if you look in the page's edit history there's been a war over whether or not boyfriends and girlfriends should be included on pages, and it keeps getting added and removed.

645 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-10 18:13 ID:1Gv7ebAj

>>640 or even here until Friday night. My husband likes to say: eating for two, thinking for 1/2. I snap back with: I'm pretty confident the baby's yours, but we should have the DNA testing just to make sure.

>>642 Yes-siree, that shirt is a cultural phenomenon. I'm trying to think of something similar but I can't. And even if I could, in my current state I'd have to compare them using primitive grunts and pictures drawn on cave walls.

>>643 Well he did "confirm" it with the post-nomination interviews. Remember: Taylor Swift and he are together. They are very happy. It is not a stunt. I think if you can provide citations then you're allowed to input info.

646 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-08-10 18:16 ID:Heaven

>>644 That must be where I read it. I wonder if they'll also debate the mention of the Rear of the Year award.

647 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-10 18:28 ID:yJpq0A3q

>>643 Wow, I'd call that real enough to write home about. I wasn't around when he was dating SF but if he did have a wiki back then, I'll bet she was the last mention of a gf, if she was even mentioned.

On the other hand, wasn't someone able to hack TS's wiki and change her nickname right after the KKW snapchat?

648 Name: anonsy : 2016-08-10 18:31 ID:jk4W5Vi7

>>645 There was debate over whether or not a relationship this short should be included at all, but I think you're right - it seems that as long as it can be cited, it's fair game. Though I do think he should be directly quoted like he was in that article, complete with notes of stammering and awkward laughter.

>>646 I went and had another look. Tom's page is semi-protected, which means that it can be edited by any registered Wikipedia user, which I am - should I go vandalize it? I could change "Hiddleston won the light-hearted UK award Rear of the Year 2016" to "Hiddleston was named Ass of the Year 2016."

(Note: I am not going to vandalize his page. If someone does this, it was not me.)

649 Name: anonsy : 2016-08-10 18:33 ID:jk4W5Vi7

>>647 Her page is semi-protected as well, so it can still be vandalized by a registered user.

650 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-10 18:33 ID:yJpq0A3q

>>640 Numbers 2 and 3 - and I'll juice fast for a day if It's number 4.

I believe that reverse psychology is at work here, on top of the mutual contract - their need to prove everyone wrong, her need to prove she is not a hateful or immature little girl, and their need to prove they're neither commitment-phobic nor flighty.

651 Name: anonsy : 2016-08-10 18:42 ID:jk4W5Vi7

>>640 Oh I missed this when I caught up!

I'm going with either 2 (but the pictures will look suspiciously like they were taken weeks ago) or 3 (Tom will try too hard to look happy and end up looking crazed).

652 Name: Savvy : 2016-08-10 18:46 ID:u9o1B1E5

Mark Ruffalo is the first of his friends/co-workers to follow him on Instagram. Robert DJ posted that not so innocent shady post but did not follow him. Interesting, hum?

653 Name: anonsy : 2016-08-10 19:03 ID:jk4W5Vi7

>>652 That is interesting. I'm sure it means something, but I can't decide what.

654 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-10 19:15 ID:1Gv7ebAj

>>638 I wonder if he has garment bags folded up inside those suitcases. He seems the type to keep his suits in garment bags. When folded into three, they take up a fair amount of room.

Or maybe they are full of Tay's favorite treats from Oz, awww!! (Did I just write People's next article?)

655 Name: anonsy : 2016-08-10 19:17 ID:jk4W5Vi7

>>654 Why on earth did he take all those bags for a week and a half long trip? If he's traveling with suits for his appearances this weekend in those bags, why did he bring them to Oz? Why on earth didn't he just leave them at his "girlfriend's" place?

Guess he didn't want to pay for a room at the Four Seasons just to leave his suits there for a week.

656 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-10 19:18 ID:YBjr16P/

>>654 Ew. 😝

657 Name: Savvy : 2016-08-10 19:44 ID:u9o1B1E5

When he came from London, he only brought one suitcase (the one he's been using for years). But the last time he travelled he has 3 brand new suitcases (from the same brand, according to Hiddles Fashion) instead of his old suitcase.I bet he got some complimentary new clothes from the brand that sponsored their last pap dinner and probably a few others. Even the suitcases are probably a gift.

>>658 Okay, fun fact. If you search the Teterboro airport flight plans, there are no scheduled flights departing for CA either today or tomorrow. So, I'm assuming that TS might not head out to CA till this weekend, since TH has a Night Manager SAG Q and A on Friday night. I think that you have to file a flight plan to fly. So maybe no pap walks till Sat or Sunday.

Also, the website, gossip of course, suggests in their new write-up of the romance that TH and TS are actually on a "break from the relationship". Wow. Dark. Going in for the kill a bit early.

666 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-11 01:36 ID:1Gv7ebAj

670 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-11 05:06 ID:yJpq0A3q

From the DListed comments: Someone finally put to paper how much money this relationship has cost him in $$$$$.

$20 Mil per movie (lets say 3 - 4, or less for even more money)
up to $10Mil for the Armani gig

TH has potentially blown $70 - $100Mil plus whatever other doors the role would open.

Such a damn shame.

671 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-08-11 07:18 ID:Heaven

>>652 No, it's not interesting and it doesn't mean much. When RDJ first joined twitter TH welcomed him but RDJ didn't follow him back right away. Everyone wondered about it then after a few days RDJ followed him back. The same will probably happen here.

Anyway RDJ posted this

Which I suppose was to mitigate the reactions to his previous post. And Ruffalo posted this

I'm guessing they are trying to be supportive (of what I wonder, it's not like TH was a victim of anything, I'm so bloody tired of people depicting like an innocent victim)

672 Name: anonsy : 2016-08-11 07:49 ID:jk4W5Vi7

>>671 I did think it was a little odd for RDJ to tag Tom in a post without following him. He's followed now, though.

It seems to me that Marvel is doing more social media promo for Thor, and I'd bet they were the reason for Tom's Instagram debut. Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth have both been sharing behind the scenes videos and photos. Tom's first photo was of Loki. I think it's not so much that they're being supportive of Tom as that they're promoting his account for professional reasons - RDJ by poking fun, Ruffalo by sharing that little clip of the two of them that's been very popular on tumblr.

673 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-08-11 07:53 ID:Heaven

>>672 You have a point - although I do not think that RDJ first post was about Marvel but about making fun.

It would have made more sense for TH to start this account while he was still on set and not now that he is in LA for his Emmy. I suppose we'll have to see, if he uses this account only for Marvel or for work in general.

674 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-11 17:44 ID:1Gv7ebAj

>>670 No way he's getting $20m per movie. CH was getting only $12m before his stock fell with a string of flops. I think TH makes well under $2-3m for his films. Maybe with the Marvel films he gets to the $5m mark but even that may not be the case. I don't know if we can place a monetary value on what he's lost. It's all too much in the realm of possibility and the unknown. He has, however, lost some serious actor cred, a fair share of his dignity and perhaps set his career off on a track not to his liking. And he's certainly opened himself up to ridicule.

675 Name: Anon : 2016-08-11 18:11 ID:HnBAvsLN


I think we can vaguely peg his Marvel earnings to what he paid for the house. It was marketed for £2.75m in Feb 2012 and he bought it for I think a little less than that. That is a fairly hefty mortgage for a single jobbing actor - assuming a £2m mortgage you are talking about £12,000 a month.

The job is not exactly secure, and the money may be a lot in one year and not much for a couple of years thereafter, if you're doing theatre work and what have you - so it's not very easy to service a £12k a month debt. I therefore assumed that he had already banked enough for the deposit and knew from his Marvel contract that he would be able to pay off the rest once he had done all the Marvel films, or at least get it down to a feasible level (say £500k, which sadly in London is the mortgage on a 2 bedroom flat). So his net Marvel earnings after everything else - tax, agents' fees, expenses - would have to be at least £3m. Say £2.25m for the deposit and paying off a big chunk of the equity, plus £750k to live on over 7 or 8 years (2010-17).

I reckon as a self employed person that you take home about 50% of what you earn when you take into account tax and deductible expenses. Maybe a bit less than 50% as you earn more - or maybe a bit more if the income is smoothed through tax efficiency. But £6m overall sounds about right to me. Maybe £750k for Thor as he was an unknown, then £1.-1.5m for Avengers and each of Thor 2 and 3.

>>675 This could be on the money - so to speak. Don't forget that he had a flat in Kentish Town that he sold after 3 years (I think) which could have made him a tidy profit. Rumor (grain of salt) is that his maternal grandfather's trust fund/legacy allowed the purchase of that property outright. That rumor stems from the fact that his younger sister - who hasn't done a lot of work and perhaps hasn't earned a lot of money from her acting - bought a flat in Hampstead at the same time, i.e., they both came into some serious cash around the same time.

>>676 I think he did quite well on the flat. It was in an area that was going up a lot at the time. I assumed that the money for that purchase came from his father, who is easily rich enough to buy them each a flat if he could pay the fees for Eton. PS I think the sister's flat was also in Kentish Town.

>>676 Also I do wonder about the fabled Vestry wealth. In a radio interview earlier this year (the one with a lot about his early life) he referred to his maternal grandfather taking him out at Christmas to the panto with all of the grandchildren from that side. The impression was that there were at least 10. That inheritance (which I think wasn't even from the main branch of the Vestry family) would have had to stretch a long way to give all those grandchildren enough to buy a flat in London.

>>674 >>675 >>676 Sorry guys I was not referring to his current salary - I meant if he had a chance to get Bond, they'd probably pay up to $20M per movie. Is that not about what Daniel Craig is earning?

680 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-11 19:17 ID:1Gv7ebAj

>>678 Oh I don't think it's Vesty wealth. Those connections are always overemphasized when mentioned. A baronetcy built on canned meat? Please come back with something impressive.

But his mother's side does seem to be populated with the types that tend to be monied and keep the money ticking over from one generation to the next. The father is another possibility.

681 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-11 19:19 ID:1Gv7ebAj

>>679 I think Craig might be getting more! That's how cuckoo Hollywood is.

682 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-11 19:19 ID:yJpq0A3q

>>674 But yes Anon. all of your points about loss, agreed.

683 Name: Anon : 2016-08-11 19:20 ID:HnBAvsLN

>>680 The canned meat heir - very Henry James, no?

Even if it wasn't from the Vestry family, the jam would still have had to spread a long way between all the grandchildren, so I think the father is a more likely source than a big inheritance.

684 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-11 19:38 ID:yJpq0A3q

>>683 Wish I could dig up the reference - someone quoted Tom's mother saying the Vesty wealth is no more (there is none, I think she said). So I'm guess the bulk of the wealth was probably distributed to his mother's parents' generation (between WWI and WWII), and whatever was left trickled down from there. I agree the trust fund came from his dad.

According to this o obituary, his maternal grandfather wasn't rich. He retired in 1980 and spent most of his time in the South of Portugal (the Algarve) where he had a house. I think Tom mentioned in some interviews the happy memories of his summer holidays in Portugal with his sisters. He died in January 1999. So if there's an inheritance, it should be in 1999.

>>683 But jam spreads so well on basic, white bread.

>>684 I'm sure the main branch has still got some sweet, sweet canned meat money, but as Anon said, he's a few trees over from that branch.

>>685 Thanks for this; I don't think I've seen this before. Inheritances can be delayed. My husband only recently received his from a great-uncle. There was an age restriction on it. Navel officer, business manager, a house here and there - he sounds fairly well off but perhaps not 'rich' as you say.

And now to important matters! Where is her plane!!

689 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-11 20:14 ID:yJpq0A3q

>>685 Ooo yes Saavy great info !

690 Name: anonsy : 2016-08-11 22:19 ID:jk4W5Vi7

According to her Instagram, TS is with her parents at what people are saying looks like her Rhode Island house.

691 Name: Anon : 2016-08-11 22:21 ID:HnBAvsLN

>>690 Did she delete something? I just looked and the last pic she posted is of her and Karlie.

692 Name: anonsy : 2016-08-11 22:25 ID:jk4W5Vi7

>>691 It's on her Instagram Story. It's a new thing, apparently.

693 Name: Anon : 2016-08-11 22:49 ID:HnBAvsLN

>>692 Yhanks. I am too old for this, evidently.

The Variety interview is worth a watch- love Jenelle
TH manages to endear himself again.
I must say, the tension in his body when bracing for audience questions is palpable.

Here's her snapchat of TH as a dog with the thirstiest tongue you've ever seen:


695 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-12 03:32 ID:yJpq0A3q

>>694 She's been so friendly to him before, the tension was unneccessary with her. Did they not talk about what's off limits beforehand?

Anyway, great interview compared to the LA Times interview, she seemed less experienced.

696 Name: Anonon : 2016-08-12 04:29 ID:dqYXAy71

>>695 The LA Times interview was terrible. She had the high pitched squeal of a nervous teenager out on a first date.
He must've had a few colonics with his emergency face tightening session to try and ease the tension.
"Loosen the arse and tighten the face please"

697 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-08-12 06:45 ID:Heaven

>>693 you can watch it here

It doesn't seem her RI house to me, her house is right on the beach and there aren't that many trees around but most of all too many roofs of other houses.

698 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-08-12 06:50 ID:Heaven

A little video courtesy of Torrilla

I think I can almost officially say I'm no longer a fan, I watched this and was slightly annoyed.

699 Name: anonsy : 2016-08-12 06:52 ID:jk4W5Vi7

>>697 If you pause it about 2 seconds in you can see her neighbor's house - black pointed roof, brick chimney. The video is flipped because she took it with the selfie camera, but it's definitely her RI house.

700 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-08-12 07:06 ID:Heaven

>>699 Hmm, don't know those roofs are too close - I'd so much prefer it if she were in LA, much more fun.
