Thread to talk about the actor Tom Hiddleston

801 Name: Anon : 2016-08-14 20:08 ID:eMcauyt1

>>797 TH went to Cambridge.

But I think you maybe get a false impression from him , and from the British press generally, about what that Eton/Oxford combination means. I know a lot of people who went to both, and they are almost without exception highly impressive individuals. That is not surprising when you consider the quality of those institutions. Eton is an incredibly competitive school to get into, and it is not just rich boys who go there - it offers £6 million a year in scholarships, which for one school is amazing. And Oxford is, according to the Times Educational Supplement, the second best university in the world (after CIT, and before Cambridge, Stanford and MIT). It offers some of the most challenging undergraduate degrees in the world, which are, like most outstanding courses, focussed on challenging their students' intellectual complacency rather than reinforcing it.

Sorry to get all serious for a moment. But I get frustrated by lazy British journalists moaning about the disproportionate representation of Oxford in the professions. When you consider its world standing as a university, it is not that surprising. Nor do you hear British journalists moaning about how rubbish it is that Hillary Clinton went to Yale and how elitist that is or how she is entitled, intellectually superior and complacent or whatever. I think I'd rather that the President of the United States went to Yale than the alternative.

Of course I accept that there continue to be access issues to Oxbridge, for which the Social Mobility Foundaton squarely blames the variable quality of state school education in Britain, and not the universities, which they accept are entitled to and do recruit solely on the merit of the individuals assessed at the time they apply. It is worth bearing in mind that the average number of state school pupils at Oxbridge is still over 60%, and that a lot of other universities such as Bristol have similar proportions, though they very rarely get mentioned in the press as being part of the same problem.

It will be interesting to see what he does with the IG. Perhaps it will be a repeat of the twitter acct: starts off with some personal stuff (TS, BTS info/pics) and then becomes all biz. Perhaps he keeps it all biz from the start because he's learnt his social media lesson (he's not learnt any lessons).

He may even go all Kim Kardashian and hawk rubbish: (pic of a shoe) These # #ralphlauren oxfords are so comfortable for pap strolling. #soblessed #authentic #strollingwithmygirl #ihatecameraphones #winkwink-noIdont

>>802 So far the IG is pretty dull. But the Twitter is showing promising signs of him having forgotten all the social media lessons (following fans again!!). Can song of the day (of course from TS) be far behind???

Anyway, where is Wally/Waldo? Why has my back to back Olympics viewing not been interrupted by news of a sponsored pap stroll?

>>801 Umm, Hillary went to Wellesley before Yale - thank you very much. #almamatershoutout (I'm going to IG hashtag everything!)

Actually, Bush the Younger went to Yale, too, and Trump went to UPenn - an IVY league school. #socarefulwhatyouwishfor!! ;)

I'm never going to fault him for the advantages - monetary, social or educational - he's had in life. Hell, I'm where I am today because I was born into a middle-class family in a first world, democratic nation. If I'd been born elsewhere, I wouldn't have had half the opportunities I've had. I'd have to call myself out if I wanted to call him out for being born a white male into a wealthy family. #notgoingtocallmyselfout Nor do I think that he's responsible for righting the system because he benefited from it and others don't get those same benefits. That's bullshit. He's an actor, not a politician and not a social justice campaigner.

But I'll happily call him out for hypocrisy and for betraying his education by sometimes being fucking stupid. I don't know him from Adam, but he's a public figure (#cameraphones) so I get to mock him for his public behavior. #thereissomuchfoddernow #soblessed #preparetobedraggedTH

>>791 Thanks, M. Are these summoned paps again? What do we think? Okay, pics at LAX, sure, it's LAX. But outside an office in LA. #medontthinkso

Is he calling them now when he's alone so that down the line he can say something along the lines of, 'I've always been a target for the paps, even when I was alone, so no, we didn't call those paps or set up those pictures.'

I know it sounds like I'm wearing a jaunty tinfoil fascinator with that theory, but I just can't seem to put anything past him these days.

811 Name: Anon : 2016-08-14 20:54 ID:eMcauyt1

>>805 Sorry - the lawyer in me focuses on the Yale Law part!

It is shocking to think that Trump has any higher education. But my point was a slightly different one. The nearest equivalent to Oxford/Cambridge is Harvard/Yale (at least traditionally - the pre-eminence of MIT and others in recent years seem to have opened up the field). But you don't see the American press bitching about the "Harvard/Yale bias" int HR same way as the British press goes on about the "Oxbridge bias."

My second point wasn't really about the other issue you mention (does he deserve his success given his advantages?). I was seeking to challenge the slight suggestion that TH is behaving like an entitled, narrow-minded wanker because he went to Eton and Cambridge. That he may well be, but it is despite his education and not because of it, in my view.

812 Name: anonsy : 2016-08-14 20:57 ID:DbcJJh9u

>>811 Maybe it's because "Oxbridge" is catchier than "Yarvard."

>>808 If he showed up in Rio I would fly out there to push him in the boating lake.

Constantine Louloudis went to Eton and Oxford. He has a first in classics (one of the hardest degrees at Oxford), and he has managed to squeeze in four wins in the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, a world championship win, a bronze Olympic medal for rowing and now he has a gold. He was born in 1991. That's what I mean about impressive individuals. Step aside, TH.

>>810 I like the idea of a tinfoil fascinator. So jaunty.

>>812 anonsy, if Trump wins, your factory will surely win the contract to tinfoil the entire White House, and possibly the Pentagon. You will be able to point to your couture tinfoil wedding dress designed especially for TayTay.

815 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-14 21:15 ID:1Gv7ebAj

>>811 My second point was to the access, scholarship and state school issues you briefly mentioned. Would TH have gotten into Cambridge without Dragon and Eton behind him? Who's to know. It will be interesting to see what happens when/if the current govt brings back the grammar school system, or some retrofitted version of it.

I think it's very clear Trump has had higher education, and Ivy league education at that. He's a clever bugger - a warped, megalomaniacal bugger, but a clever one.

>>808 He can't really go to Rio. #icantgetzikaifIwanttoknockupTay

818 Name: NewAnon : 2016-08-14 22:00 ID:1R0DkkPA

>>816 His intellect is always been in the tops, there's no doubt there. But I do think he's always had an overinflated sense of self. I don't know the causes of it, whether it was part of his upbringing or whether it was inherent and exacerbated by his school environment. So I agree with your point in the earlier replies that his schooling isn't solely responsible for him being entitled, self centered and narrow minded (really hope I didn't misunderstand you there).

This whole thing has made me wonder whether he truly wants to be a famous actor or whether he wants to be a famous celebrity.

819 Name: NewAnon : 2016-08-14 22:05 ID:1R0DkkPA

>>818 has* always been in the tops.

Also wanted to add that as far as his "authenticity" goes, I think the only authentic thing about Tom is that he really wants to be very well known and recognized in the mainstream. He wants the attention and it's clear from his public appearances that he relishes in it. It seems to me he's trying on different approaches to it. He did the serious actor stay mysterious approach for a while and it didn't work fast enough so now he's giving the public celebrity relationship approach a spin and it definitely gave him that recognition he wanted in the mainstream, just for all the wrong reasons. Now if he's content with that and doesn't care that his own accomplishments are getting shoved aside then he'll continue while pretending he's above it all lol

820 Name: Anon : 2016-08-14 22:54 ID:eMcauyt1

>>818 You understood exactly what I meant.

I do think his schooling is responsible for this is a sense. He was a very little child when he was sent away to boarding school. It's unusual even in the UK to send kids away at 7. I think that damaged him a lot more than he is prepared to admit. I can see it making a child desperate to fit in, to please, to make friends by being the class clown. To gain the attention and love of the audience (parents) that rejected him by sending him away so young.

821 Name: NewAnon : 2016-08-14 23:53 ID:1R0DkkPA

>>820 That's why I've always been hesitant to peg down either school or just his privilege as the cause of his mindset. But going to boarding school at 7 and then more or less living that life well into adulthood, could account for his need for attention and wanting to be famous. It could explain that approval he's always seeking by being such a people pleaser, that is IF he didn't get any proper approval and encouragement from home and family.

But with that said, he probably lacks the self awareness to even see his immaturity. Then again, a lot of people are like that so he's not exactly unique there lol I mean look at his girlfriend. They are two peas in a pod! They are a pretty good fit in some ways if you think about it...just not in that romantic way the Swifties and Hiddleswifties see it lol

822 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-15 04:21 ID:H0QSNiw2

>>816 I'd say your performance at university very much depends on your primary and secondary education, and he had some of the best prep with Dragon and Eton. But I don't argue that he's a smart boy. Having done my own Classics degree, his powers of recall must be unimaginable. Greek participles can destroy even the sturdiest of souls, i.e., me!

>>817 Men should never, never spend any extended time in lycra. Shudder. Everything is so...present. ;)

>>820 It doesn't help that he's a middle child; they never get enough attention. Do we know if his sisters were sent away to school or did the only boy get 'special' treatment.

823 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-15 05:24 ID:yJpq0A3q

>>822 I vaguely remember him mention something about his younger sister at the school; no idea about the older sister.

So where do you all look when you're looking for airport pap pictures? Twitter, IG have nothing on TH at LAX or any other airport. Right now, both JFK and LAX have evacuations for gunshots and suspicious bags, repectively, so that's dominating the current news.

Wow, I was only making a joke using his schools, I was not blaming the schools for his latest choices. But got it, do not use schools in jokes.

826 Name: Anon : 2016-08-15 07:19 ID:eMcauyt1

>>822 There is a correlation. But at Oxford it's not the one you'd think. The group most likely to get a first is state educated boys; the least likely, privately educated boys. The theory is that boys do better at private schools because they aren't self-starting like teenage girls. They need to be druv. So they blossom at private schools and get amazing grades. When released to the freewheeling environment of Oxford, where the tutorial system is a lot ofnprivate study and (for arts subjects) typically two or three hours of tutor contact a week, they crash and burn. State educated boys are the outliers because they didn't get pushed so much at school but were successful anyway. So they know how to do it themselves - and they continue to do so at Oxford.

827 Name: Anon : 2016-08-15 07:31 ID:eMcauyt1

>>825 Hey Couch, no shade intended and certainly no intention to stop you joking about him. The subject of privilege and achievement is in the news a lot in the UK and it comes up regularly when discussing TH because of his background. I'm aware that there is a range of views about it and I certainly don't expect everyone to share mine.

828 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-08-15 07:44 ID:Heaven

>>827 None taken, really, no worries. I truly didn't think it might prompt a conversation about the school system, that I know is a sensitive subject in the UK and since my knowledge of it is limited to what you guys write about it, I would never think of touching in a serious fashion.

829 Name: Anon : 2016-08-15 13:12 ID:iagJpwLi

Where is he?!!

1) In bed with TayTay celebrating their engagement
2) En route back to Australia celebrating his escape
3) In LA with TayTay planning the next Show of their Mance
4) In Silicon Valey attending "Social Media for Dummies" class

>>829 Where indeed? Was he finally able to avoid people with cameras on their phones hellbent on capturing every moment of his life?
I love #4. TH learning about hashtags and social media trending lol

#2 most likely if he wasn't lying about the 48 hours thing. He's gone so quiet though. Did he get an offer where the producer said he'll only consider him if he feels back his overexposure?

832 Name: Sosorry : 2016-08-15 17:17 ID:I4dpY8ws

>>831 I think it all depends on when the Barnes & Noble employee's TH sighting took place. She posted her pic with TH on Instagram at 2pm on Saturday and she posts quite regularly on Instagram. But the TS plane took off from Burbank early in the afternoon on Saturday as well. The Jet Anon said that she was pretty sure that because of when the flight took off, that TH probably wasn't on it, but I wasn't watching. Does anyone know when the plane took off from Burbank? For the record, TH seems to able to fly commercially around the US w/o being seen by fans (his most recent trip from LA to NYC trip). We didn't know where TH was till he was spotted during lunch @ Balthazaar in Soho. By contrast, TH seems to always get papped at LAX when he leaves the country using the international terminal. Therefore, if the bookstore sighting took place early on Saturday, then he is probably in RH. However, if the bookstore sighting took place later in the afternoon, TH is probably lying low in LA, since it wouldn't make sense to the narrative if he and TS aren't together after 2 weeks apart. I guess we'll see!

833 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-15 17:24 ID:yJpq0A3q

When the SAG video comes out later today we'll see exactly what he said, which may still be a lie. Also, are we sure of where she is?

834 Name: Sosorry : 2016-08-15 17:46 ID:I4dpY8ws

Jetanon said that the flight from Burbank flew to Groton, which is TS's airport for her Watch Hill, RH house. At the same time, her other plane flew from Groton to NYC and landed, and then continued to Nashville.

People are assuming that the plane dropped off her brother in NYC and her parents in Nashville. And also, assumed that TS stayed on in RH since the Burbank plane landed in Groton for sure. Would she let non family members stay at her house if she wasn't there? Probably not. So either TH was at B&N early on Saturday and flew to Groton on the Swift plane, or he's hiding out in LA, or he left for Brisbane on the very delayed Qantas flight last night. However, I have a hard time believing that TH could depart LAX w/o being papped by a fan or paparazzi. We'll see.

835 Name: NewAnon : 2016-08-15 18:01 ID:1R0DkkPA

Or Taylor could've chartered a private plane for both of them out of LA or NYC to Australia under the radar. I don't know how Marvel would feel about that or any production for that matter. He's definitely laying low otherwise Sat Sun were prime pap stroll days and they didn't do anything.

836 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-15 18:21 ID:1Gv7ebAj

I'm going out on a low, sturdy limb here: They are not together. Why? Because we've not seen them. Save for the lying low post #kimexposedtaylorparty, if they've been together, we've gotten pics. Even when they came back from Oz on the private jet, we got pap pics and hand holding at the private airport! At this point, no pictures = not together.

Were they together? Maybe. If she were on the plane that made the RI-CA-RI trip, then perhaps they had a few hours together. Up thread someone said it arrived late Fri and took off Sat afternoon. That's a wide enough window for some 'alone time.' But these two so rarely have alone time. Remember when we thought they were at Hillstones having quiet time (actual pic from a camera phone!), but then there was the article...and the pap pics and the sponsored tweets. Every bit of their 'alone/private time' has been bracketed by staged pap pics, professional photographer pics or articles.

837 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-15 18:24 ID:1Gv7ebAj

As to lack of LAX pics. I thought when they first went to Oz that someone said that LAX had a specific terminal, area, underground tunnel/bunker (I forget the terminology used) which allowed celebs to come and go without being seen. The implication being that Tayto wanted to be seen leaving for Oz. True, untrue?

838 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-08-15 18:42 ID:Heaven

Always remember JA guys, no sightings no nothing and then BoraBora happened.

TH is a master in making his fans think nothing is going on. The final round of online voting for the Emmys started today, I doubt TH wanted to give his fans reasons not to vote for him.

839 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-15 18:56 ID:yJpq0A3q

The mess last night at LAX was, if he or they were trying to get out of town, a fortunate wrench thrown into strategy to lay low.

>>844 Hard to tell. I used to think it was a real relationship. But I now go back and forth because of their strange behavior.

>>843 Looks like it, so then these must be from the 13th, not 14th or the plane flight info is wrong.

847 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-15 19:31 ID:1Gv7ebAj

And he's got a gift for Tay. Must be to celebrate the 2 month anniversary. What do we think it is?

848 Name: NewAnon : 2016-08-15 19:33 ID:41I9V1sS

Wait I'm confused. So he left on Taylor's plane to Australia? Or they both left for Australia on a private plane together?

>>844>>846 I never thought it was a fake relationship. I always thought it was real but a very publicized one.

849 Name: NewAnon : 2016-08-15 19:36 ID:41I9V1sS

>>842 If these were taken yesterday and that's her plane, weren't both her plane on the East coast on Sat already? Or are these from Sat and he was on her plane at Burbank that then flew to the east coast?

I'm confused about whether he's boarding her plane to go meet her or whether he's boarding a private flight for Australia. Considering he said he needed to be on a plane to Aus in 48 hours on Friday. Unless he was lying and he's spending this week with her. Or they're already en route to Aus together on a private flight.

>>848 No, it seems he was on the plane back to RI. So, he's either going back to Oz later or via another departure airport on the East Coast? But who knows?

852 Name: Sosorry : 2016-08-15 19:40 ID:I4dpY8ws

RH vacation makes the most sense. If they continued to do public pap walk dates in LA, wearing matching clothes that they have endorsements with, in front of paparazzi that they called in advance to chain restaurants, it would look as is they cared more about being seen together then actually being together in private.

However, since TS took a 2 day romantic vacation with Calvin, that had a 4 bikini photo shoot for instagram, and then split with Calvin 2 weeks after kissing him in an airport, I don't really know if vacations really indicate whether TS is mad about a boy, or not? I know that this is snarky, but I don't really get how she conducts herself in the press. It seems as if the image of her brand is the main thing that matters. We're at the 3 month point, so either we're aobut to gear up in the relationship or gear down, I guess.

853 Name: Anon : 2016-08-15 19:41 ID:eMcauyt1

>>846 I just don't know. If it is real it's normal that they would want to see each other before a probably long separation. If it's fake they have to show they have seen each other or everyone will say it's over.

If they are not seen together during this visit, and there is no People puff piece or similar, I think I will tend towards believing it is real. Some evidence that they are spending time together alone and not for any ulterior purpose. If, however, they can't resist pimping themselves out I will remain unsure.

PS1: Torrillia usually gets the date right on her pics
PS2: If these pics were taken on 14 August it again shows that whenever TH opens his mouth he lies, because he did not leave for Australia in 48 hours as he claimed.

>>847 I saw the gift bag. I am going with a handbag. It's way too big for jewellery and most jewellery bags are fairly distinctive (eg Cartier, Tiffany). It's also an "I care about you, but not too much yet" present.

855 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-15 19:50 ID:TC2xIMAt

>>853 If it is her plane - and it looks like it from the pics and M's posts - then the pics were probably taken on 8.13 but only released on 8.14, so Torrilla could still be correct.

If no pics (pap, stages, IG) come out, I too will lean toward real. But that just hasn't been their MO.

I'm not surprised that he's telling lies. It's becoming all smoke and mirrors with this guy.

856 Name: NewAnon : 2016-08-15 19:51 ID:41I9V1sS

>>851 Ah okay. So he was definitely on her plane from Burbank to RI then.

>>853 Lol he probably lied about going to Australia. We can cut him some slack and assume maybe his schedule got moved around in the past two days so he has some more free days to spend with her.

So the plane pics prove he definitely went to RI this weekend and spent Sunday there OR they left for Australia together on a chartered private jet she hired OR that he doesn't have to be in Australia until later and he's spending this week with her and we should be ready for an NYC pap stroll or an RI plant piece from somewhere.

857 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-08-15 19:53 ID:I4dpY8ws

>>854 TS does love her purses : ) It could be a houseguest gift (TH has great manners), or it could be a parting gift for the end of the contract. So entertained, and so confused!

858 Name: anonsy : 2016-08-15 19:53 ID:jk4W5Vi7

>>853 Unless, of course, the ulterior purpose of not being seen is to convince people they're real. Plus business meetings have to happen, right? And we don't know if anyone else is on that plane, or at the house in RI.

Enough has happened in the past two months that I no longer believe there is any reality to this relationship. I do think there may have been at least some attraction at the beginning, but I think if there was it fizzled out quickly and they have been keeping up appearances.

>>852 You're not being snarky, SoSorry. The thing is that she conducts herself so often in the press/social media, period. Those holiday shots with Calvin seemed to be in response to break-up rumors because they hadn't seen each other for a length of time and he didn't go to the Met with her - cue holiday snaps.

Perhaps that's what we will get with TH. We've had break-up rumors so we need a few IG candids in RI. I will laugh my head off if they go back to those rocks...and a certain portion of the fandom will burn to the ground.

861 Name: NewAnon : 2016-08-15 20:00 ID:41I9V1sS

>>858 Him getting papped while boarding her jet is no accident or "people with cameras on ther phones". First the IG follows and now boarding her plane but no sight of her or them together. Either they've broken up and are keeping up appearances or the whole thing is a sham from start to finish and this is just part of their "oh we're a real couple see we are private you just don't let us"

I always thought they were a real couple so I'm not sure what to think now lol

>>861 I was just coming back here to say I think that Tom getting papped boarding her jet counts as them wanting everyone to know they're together.

Maybe the gift is from B&N. The woman who helped him said in her video she was asked to keep title a secret. B&N has gift bags.

But yeah, likely a purse.

And, he wearing the same clothes as from the book store photo. So yeah, these pics are from Saturday, and he went to RI.

>>866 I love the email from the senior police officer to his underlings. Check out the joyous use of scare quotes!!!

"I don’t want to detract from the good work @NorPolPrevent do via twitter, but probably just helpful to be mindful of editing pics of ‘celebrities’. They spend a lot of money and carefully craft their public images, and associations with contentious topics can be concerning for them!"

If he's giving her books, does that he mean he's prepping her for the Emmy's so she can make intellectual conversation? Did he buy her Purity or that other book Any Human Heart? Is the Emmy's on then too?

Man I don't know anymore with my guess. I'm thinking if they have broken then they're just putting on a front until Emmy voting and VMAs are over. If it's still on (real relationship) then who knows how long they'll be together. He has no problem doing whatever she wants. If it's all PR then the pretense is on until the Emmy's are over. Those are my guesses.

Shit. Tom Hiddleston is HAVING A BREAKDOWN...because GC says that he's NOT having a breakdown.

872 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-08-15 20:27 ID:I4dpY8ws

>>863 Thank you for saying that I'm not snarky! TH was between the biography section and the fiction section I think, so anything is possible. Maybe he bought her that Franzen book he loved, Purity. Amazing book, btw.

As I remember those UK beach pap walk pics with his family, I still lean towards fake. No one changes their entire way of presenting themselves to the media, as TH did, w/o a clear business incentive. And I don't think that you can fall in love authentically with someone, while simultaneously plotting world publicity domination : ) One must choose I think.

And I also think that the way that TS raced back from Nashville overnight to pap walk at Hillstone in LA was suspicious. It was as if she knew that that was their last chance to do that for a bit. Team TH is still connected to Team TS, but the press presentation seems more even keeled than explosive, now. We'll see! If I was TH and going to the Emmys, I wouldn't want the red carpet talk to just be about my relationship, instead of my nomination.

873 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-15 20:28 ID:TC2xIMAt

>>868 Maybe when this is all over, TH should contact Prevent and ask them to photoshop ALL of those pics, every last one, with I <3 Prevent.

Yeah, officer, they paid a lot of money for those pap shots and $10 for the shirt - don't go stealing their true love thunder.

874 Name: NewAnon : 2016-08-15 20:28 ID:41I9V1sS

>>870 He must have been bawling on the plane back to RI because he almost got away in LA lol

875 Name: Anon. : 2016-08-15 20:48 ID:TC2xIMAt

>>853 >>874 I didn't watch the live interview. I can't watch him move and speak at this point. And this is not me defending him - I won't - but maybe he said that he needed to be 'on a plane' in 48 hours and the interviewer just assumed it was to Oz. Hell, maybe he even said 'I need to be on a plane for work!!

He's dancing around outright lies like he's on a stage in South Korea!

877 Name: anonsy : 2016-08-15 20:51 ID:jk4W5Vi7

>>875 You know, he said at SDCC he had to get back to work right away, and then he was with TS. Now if it happened again and he said he has to be on a plane to work, then flew to TS? Is he trying to tell us something? Blink out an S.O.S., Tom.

Have we got a JustJared write up yet? Complete with, he bought a gift for Taylor and a close-up on the bag? It's not a 'random pap shot' unless it shows up on JJ.

884 Name: Sosorry : 2016-08-15 21:27 ID:I4dpY8ws

>>883 Did anyone see the new dailymail article about Tom? 'There are many sides to a story': Tom Hiddleston stumbles over question about his romantic summer with Taylor Swift during Q&A

>>882 Okay good, because I really want to see it happen. I will atone for my sins in the Tinfoil Temple.

>>884 The most recent comment on the article:

Vernon Dudley, Number four privet drive, United Kingdom, about 2 seconds ago
"The two of them could punch a shark in the face on live television and you couldn't make them any more interesting. Please stop posting stories about these dullards, no one cares. The mere thought of the two of them together is like a bourbon and Ambien cocktail."

886 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-15 22:47 ID:yJpq0A3q

Every time he says 'I have to get back to work' or the like and he ends up with TS, it just tells me he's telegraphing that she. is. work. The contract is real.

887 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-16 01:17 ID:yJpq0A3q

The SAG-AFTRA video is out:

It's 78 mins long. I'm not particularly interested in spending that long watching it, so I'm waiting for someone on tumblr to watch and tell us the exact quote about the 48 hours.

888 Name: NewAnon : 2016-08-16 01:30 ID:1R0DkkPA

>>875>>877 The video is out now so someone will find the exact quote. If he did say "gotta be on a plane for work" then oooo Freudian slip! Otherwise if he did say he has to be on a plane to Aus, why lie? Just don't mention it and carry on.

>>876 Technically the whole thing has been phenomenally terrible. Apart from paid off tabloids and paparazzi and Hiddlestans and Swifties, everyone has laughed at this couple from the start. Now they're bored of them and want to see them gone. There's no charisma or sex appeal or any kind of mass appeal to Tom and Taylor as a couple. Whatever their aim was, it missed the mark and now it's just sad pathetic stumbling lol

889 Name: Anonon : 2016-08-16 01:52 ID:sJXgf3TS

Not Michael K so not quite as funny as it should be but there's a giggle or two.

So he was on that plane to RI after all!
It did seem the only logical reason for the flight was to transport him.
As much as I question the legitimacy of their relationship, somehow this seems legitimate. However- why were the pap photos shelved for two days? Why did they whore their relationship for a month then go underground? Why did he lie again about racing back to set? (admittedly I can't be bothered watching the video)
Lest we forget all the fakeness (thats what they're counting on) that far outweighs any legitimacy.

890 Name: NewAnon : 2016-08-16 02:34 ID:1R0DkkPA

>>889 I thought it was legit too but these plane pics are making me question it all. They were taken at a private airport by a professional agency who didn't release them until today when final Emmy voting started. Combined with the GC article that reiterates again that Tom and Taylor are still together, I'm side eyeing this whole thing.

Now I'm on the fence of it all being a fake romance or whether it did start out legit but fizzled out due to the Kimye fiasco and now they've broken up but putting on pretenses so that Tom and Taylor don't get laughed at more before Emmy voting is finished and the VMAs are over. Both are right after each other. VMAs on Aug 28th and final day for Emmy votes Aug 29th. Let's see what happens in between and after those dates.

891 Name: Sosorry : 2016-08-16 02:53 ID:Bs/W2YD8

The interviewer said, you're literally 48 hours from now, going back to Australia.

892 Name: Sosorry : 2016-08-16 02:55 ID:Bs/W2YD8

>>891 TH put his head down and nodded. So, he fibbed...

893 Name: Anonon : 2016-08-16 02:55 ID:sJXgf3TS

>>890 Have any news sources caught on to these pics though or just fans? If its not in the news then they've been effectively buried.
I'm not jumping on any legitimacy train unless he manages to return to Oz without a public announcement/ display that he is spending his time with Tay Tay.

894 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-08-16 03:07 ID:yJpq0A3q

>>892 Apparently, 'Australia' is a code for 'wherever Taylor says.' He can't even say the word, he has to break eye contact to fauxacknowledge the lie.

895 Name: Sosorry : 2016-08-16 03:11 ID:Bs/W2YD8

>>893 Professional photographers took the pics of TH at Burbank airport, where TS is never papped really, and they held the photos for two whole days! Plus team Swift allowed her jet, N898TS, to logged going to Rhode Island, whereas she has not let either of her jets to be logged for two entire weeks. Only the TH flight was logged on plane finder. So far, it's an unofficial pap walk. Like, when TS lent TH her Toyota Sequoia jeep and driver for comic con. And TH was professionally photographed at the four season transferring belongings from her jeep to his Marvel jeep before heading the LAX for NYC. It's all a game. And I think THs meeting with Marvel, his lawyers, business manager was a game changer of sorts.

For those who just want to watch the notorious 48hr back to Oz nod, it's at 1:03 in the video.
He clearly nods and smiles in agreement. Much nodding, much smiling.

>>896 This is beyond bizarre. Why is she embarking when she should be disembarking? None of it makes sense. I want to believe but I don't

898 Name: Sosorry : 2016-08-16 03:53 ID:I4dpY8ws

OMG! Has anyone sees this on Sugar's Tea!! The whole thing with TH was staged! He never left LA, apparently!!

The video, filmed by Splash News, shows Taylor walking around and heading up into the jet. Taylor appears to have no idea that she is being photographed. It is clear that she is not excitedly meeting up with a friend, family member, or a fake boyfriend. She is just walking around casually and emotionless.

Notice that this was flimed late at night (🌙🌑). The flight from LA to RI landed at the Groton airport after 10 pm. It departed LA just after 1 pm (☀️). So there is no question that this is the evening arrival of her jet at the Groton airport.

It appears that this sneaky paparazzi 📷 🕵🏼 was tracking Taylor’s jet like many bloggers do. He arrived at the airport, likely expecting to see Tom get off the jet. But there was no Tom, he said! He would have waited all night for Tom to get off that jet because that would have been a huge money shot. 📷 💰

The caption erred, however, in saying that Taylor flew in on the jet from LA as it has been established that she was in RI at the time …..and the video shows her going up into the jet (perhaps to check out a remodel of the plane’s interior). Notably, the plane is still in RI at that airport so it is logical that Taylor would want to get an early look at a potential new interior remodel.

Based on the sneaky paparazzi at the Groton airport, it seems undeniable that they staged photographs of Tom at the Burbank airport with a hired photographer ….. to imply that Tom was getting on the jet to go meet up with Taylor in Rhode Island. But an uninvited paparazzi showed up at the Groton airport and said Tom was not on the jet. 💅

Tom has a lot more filming to do in Australia so RI was quite out of the way.

So why did they hold the pics of Tom at the Burbank airport? Likely to make sure that Tom was not spotted somewhere else and that there stunt was executed successfully. Also, do not be surprised if they post an IG pic of them together in RI. You can bet they staged multiple shots 📷 over the 4th of July in different outfits to prepare for such a stunt.

Psst: the Emmy voting period is until August 29th so do not expect a ‘break up’ until after that date at the earliest.

Credit to @jetanon for mucho help on this post. ✈️ Also, credit to my mysterious mutual who does not want credit for finding the pap video! 🕵🏼

Oh. Wow. Please be true.

>>897 The only thing that's clear is that Tom wasn't on the jet when it got to RI.
