Thread to talk about the actor Tom Hiddleston
2 full threads in how many days? This must be a record....
Re 998 on previous thread: It doesn't have to be pregnancy.
For entertainment, I give you an Us Weekly blast from the past, July of last year:
I agree he is sending a message. He's far too clever to have done this by accident. To that extent I agree with the crazy tumblr folks.
It's hilarious he retweets that article the same day as US prints about him proposing to Taylor.
If he was referring to Brexit when retweeted, he should have been more precise. But I guess he's counting on the ambiguity to work in his favor, both in shaming people who won't buy the happy couple narrative and to allow wiggle room that maybe he wasn't referring to his private life ("because I never talk about my personal life") but rather poignantly expressing his views on the current political climate and its influencers.
>>4 Agreed, that is certainly what he trying to say. The medium of the message is all wrong though. Silly boy.
>>2 I would buy the impulsive and pig- headed line. He has shot himself in the foot and just stood up and misfired again and again.
>>3 Still, meeting the parents after 4 months doesn't even come close to their two week mark.
I also have the impression US Weekly is a much more credible source than the Sun, non for engagement rumors?
Do you think he knew the proposal story was coming out today via her camp, and his RT was a way to deflect?
Ah, Tom and his poignant little visits to social media whenever the nasty journos are being howwible to poor diddums. This makes 3 (The Wirk, Seneca and a sententious, overlong Guardian article).
>>7 No idea if the Sun is more or less reliable than USW. On the one hand, it is a tabloid, but on the other, it is not in the publicists' pockets and it did break the story that they were dating! It may be peddling a different kind of half truth than USW, which promulgates whatever lie the celebs' publicists think will suit their purposes today.
>>3 hahaha same old same old.
>>5 Does it work in his favour? With the exception of TH's fangirls and the Swifties, anyone would think what we thought: hypocrite. He is dating a girl that uses her own fans to manipulate the narrative on social media, someone that uses her hair to kiss ass Anna Wintour and get herself a commercial with Apple. He just did the opposite of what he should be doing.
>>4 See, that was more self projection because I can't figure out if his awkward refusal to comment on Taylor is giving himself the out that "well I never called her my gf anywhere, the media assumed just because I took her to meet my family. I'm a private man so no one knows how I treat my gfs, maybe I take all of them to meet my family, serious or not." OR if he really is serious long term with her and is getting peeved no one is believing him. Then again if you're serious about someone, you wouldn't care about what others thought. And he's smart enough to know that.
>>12 It didn't but I think he thought it would. He's been drinking too much of Taylor's Kool-aid if he thinks his fanbase will respond like Taylor's does to her when she throws out a rallying cry.
Aaaaaand here we go
>>10 He avoids those, but we are way after the fact and come on, nobody believes he was in the Brexit camp, if not for political reasons, for economical ones. Britain cinema and tv industry very loudly expressed how Brexit is going to be a disaster for them, less money to spend and more difficulties employing foreign artists.
>>15 "A Hiddleston pal" - when, pray, has he seen any pal, or even his own publicist (assuming that by now he has no actual friends left) in the last month? Another plant from her side, I am guessing.
What does Luke even do, now?
Even Kaiser shaded him about this tweet!
>>15 The Hiddleston pal says it's all very fast and public and then an insider, and I'm assuming this one is a Swift pal is all they have fun energy, she's ecstatic and giddy.
LOL! If those are true summarizations of how their respective camps feel then maybe the end is nigh.
>>19 Same here. It's always HER perspective and how it's all affecting her. It's the Taylor Swift show and Tom is guest starring in it. I think it's been her show since day one and Tom doesn't get much of a say. Not publicly at least.
someone on CB correctly observed that now Tom has started using emoticons on his tweets, the end is nigh.
'Rupert Hawksley @ruhawksley 7m7 minutes ago
What if he's already proposed and now they're easing people towards it so that when its announced its not completely out of left field?
Lol will he still refuse to comment on her when she's his fiancé and then wife?
And then TMZ publishes this as claims coming from Taylor's side http://m.tmz.com/#article/2016/07/13/taylor-swift-calvin-harris-this-is-what-you-came-for-wrote-song-rihanna/
For the record, I don't think Taylor would ever write a song and not publicly claim credit for it. Especially one that's such a huge hit.
What is going on? Can someone hold me? I feel lost and afraid.
He has the radio interview today - or tomorrow in Oz time. Let's see what delights that brings. More stuttering, more uncertainty, maybe an engagement announcement. Maybe TayTay will join him as a surprise. Impromptu (that they've been practicing for weeks) country and western duet, anyone?
>>27 If we see him with his guitar and TS in tow we might have to get ready for a duet, song: I Saw the Light. Followed by a RT of an article about how social media killed people appreciation of indies gems like ISTL. Everyone is so mean!
>>27 It's ok, you are suffering from PTSD. Post tweet scepticism & distrust.
I read about this condition on Twitter.
If there is a live performance, hang onto your eardrums. It will be the autotuned leading the tone deaf:
Calvin getting messy on Twitter. Amazing.
From the resurrected Theoanons, who seems over it.
>>33 It's all so messy. When it's all said and done - whatever the outcome - I feel everyone involved is going to need to pitch in for one of those cleaning services that deal with crime scenes...violent crime scenes.
I admire the fact that Harris won't go down without a fight, that he won't let her PR paint him as the bad guy so she can play victim and win back the favour of the media.
Shame on TH for being part of this.
I love this!! The oversharing! The messiness! The ex-BF!
Is Calvin sitting at home swigging rosé wine alternatively with eating Pringles straight from the tube with one hand and peanut m&ms with the other?
Yeah, I'd say she's over it: http://theoanons.tumblr.com/post/147340336922/aka-i-can-use-and-manipulate-the-media-and-social
Going by the updates at CB's post about this, TS's party confirmed this to People, before Harris reaction
I'm all for Calvin standing up for himself. She dtags her exes and always makes them out as horrible people and we only ever hear one side of the story. I don't get why Tom got himself involved in all this. He was finally flying high. Did he even know things were this messy and unfinished with Calvin? Or is he being blindsided by all this too?
>>40 even if she originally agreed and now changed her mind she could have contacted Harris and told him. She took the royalties anyway, so it's not a matter of money.
Here's The Wirk:
Just tweeted by Unicef Ireland, here's a youtube of Tom from the Thor 3 set where he dons the Loki wig:
>>40 I totally agree. I am not dragging Calvin here, just laughing at the soap opera craziness of it. Actually I admire him for going down swinging. Another instance of TayTay sending mixed messages. I want to be anonymous....until I don't.
Hahahahahaha!!! And here, too, is the Charidee Wirk!!
>>40 I am too NewAnon. I love Calvin being a messy queen right now but bless him for expressing himself better than TH:
"And she sings on a little bit of it too 🙃
On the other hand, Calvin, you're being a petty messy queen. :)
And right now on Twitter, the top two trends are:
>>47 Sadly in London right now the top trend is #Cameron. Not even #DavidCameronisOverParty.
Genuine question: has TS ever had this level of scorn poured upon her? Both for her ways with her exes and for her manipulation of the media?
>>48 Don't know, Anon. I never gave a rat's ass about her until TH started dating her. Never followed anything she said or did on MSM or social media.
Is this why Taylor decided to hit out at Calvin? Because he may be moving with an older hotter woman? http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/calvin-harris-parties-with-nicole-scherzinger-details-w212644
Even if Calvin and Nicole are just friends, with Taylor's maturity levels, she'd still be pissed anyways. I agree with Calvin on if you're so happy in your new relationship, why are you bothering attacking and leaking things about your ex? Like Couch said, it's not like she was being deprived of her royalties. She just wants attention and she wants Calvin to cry over her. Again all about her as usual.
>>48 Never at this level where the media is calling her out. Usually she was pretty paced out with a new romance roll out. You'd get a few leaks here and here then a pap stroll once a month or once maybe every 2-3 weeks. With the Kennedy kid, it was pretty fast paced but still not as aggressively fast as it was with Tom. And most of the time, the media and public believed her and didn't care too much. But now it's a whole different vitriol. I think it's because she put on a whole show of maturing and learning from her mistakes. She really didn't date for almost 2 years and cultivated a healthy image of a girl growing up and hanging out with friends and getting to know herself better. Then Calvin happened and their relationship was her longest ever with her saying this is her private thing and she doesn't believe in letting the public into her private space now.
So TH is in 2 conundrum:
1) People believe this relationship to be PR/fake because of their aggressive PR/fakeness and the more they try to make it
look real the more PR/fake it feels.
In response to the Mirror reporting that TH is planning to propose to TS very soon, Tom's PR said the following:
reps for Tom told us: "We don’t comment on baseless speculation regarding our client’s private life."
I am unable to say this without laughing, but tomorrow TS is going to wake up to an Instagram full of snake and poo emojis.
The description of the enforced fun at the party is hilarious. Couple of revealing quotes: Taylor is happy because she is "in control" (you don't say!) and Tom is "along for the ride." He is happy to be on her Instagram (you don't say! etc).
>>54 I'm waiting for her stans to start a new hashtag, #TakeThatAdam
I guess Tom is still in there somewhere trying to keep some control over the situation lol http://www.gossipcop.com/tom-hiddleston-proposing-taylor-swift-engaged/
"Darling I'll do your choreographed pap strolls but I am NOT proposing just to one up your ex."
For purposes of comparison with TS's completely OTT security: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/07/13/queen-surprises-pub-goers-by-dropping-into-her-local-in-edinburg/
>>60 To be fair .. after the events in Orlando, I have no doubt that TS has some insane fane and would not begrudge her the security if she is going to socialise in public places. She's already had people breaking into her house I think, so it must be horrible to always be looking over your shoulder when people approach you with a smile.
>>60 You know that martini was for her - gin!!
>>61 I don't think the events in Orlando have too much bearing on her situation. As with everything Tay - it's over the top. She, I'm sure, has obsessed fans but does she need to have 3-4 security guards with her all the time? Does she need to send one out running with her bf?
>>61 The Queen has had someone try to assassinate her (she was on horseback in a parade at the time and remained completely calm while the horse and everyone around her went nuts). She also had a crazy guy climb into her bedroom at Buckingham Palace at night. Again she stayed completely calm, talking to him until he asked for a cig. She sloped off to get one and raised the alarm. The threat to her life is probably fifty-fold. I am afraid I think she is made of much sterner stuff.
>>62 Of course the martini was for the Queen! The Queen Mother always used to have a giant gin and Dubonnet before any formal lunch. I think HMQ acquired her fondness for gin from her. HMQ also still likes the odd cig as well. Good for her.
>>61 Re: Orlando - the singer Christine Grimme who was killed in Orlando the day before the club massacre - is that what you were referring to? If so, I totally agree.
From Cosmo, an article labeling CH as a fuckboy http://www.cosmopolitan.com/entertainment/celebs/a61325/calvin-harris-taylor-swift-taking-sides/
>>65 The 'author's' failure to see that her argument is inverted AND her twitter account tells me everything I need to know about this article - that it's not worth the internet bytes it takes up.
>>61 Grimme's death would certainly be a reason for security - on stage, backstage, at fan events, etc. But 3-4 bodyguards everywhere TS goes? That's her paranoia and her desire to construct a bubble around herself. It also serves to infantilize her. The guards tell the fans no, the guards tell the patients not to tweet, the restaurant not to mention what she ordered, the guards hold her sweater, etc.
>>66 In a country with extremely tight gun laws compared to the US, yes, it's overkill. In her mind, she's erring on the side of caution and probably saying 'this is what my parents would want.' Hell, maybe her parents insisted on it. I'll bet that when she took TH to visit them to announce that she would be living and traveling with him for the next two months or so and it was going to be very public, they probably begged her to take the whole detail.
>>67 That meeting with her parents. Yeah, I don't buy that. With his we got nearly every relative minus the 3rd cousin, and several pap strolls. With hers, all we got was an article saying she brought them back to meet him at her apartment. No pics, no strolls. Nada. Did it even happen?
'A good friend of mine has a friend, a very small-time musician, who dated Taylor around the early 2010's. He was a fool for her and thought it was super real, and asked her if he could start telling people that they were together. The minute he asked, she said "If you tell ANYONE about this, I will fucking BURY you." And he got the FUCK out of that real quick. Like homegirl has some legit SATAN in her chicken bones. But from Calvin's tweet, I really have a feeling that her secret evil tagline is "I will bury ______".
>>67 It definitely is, UK has a no gun law, Italy has a very restricted gun law, OZ has a no gun law. And as Anon. pointed out sending a bodyguard along when your bf goes running isn't about protection, but control masked as protection, that way she has eyes-and-ears over everything TH will be doing, for example chatting with another girl.
There must be a contract with TH, no person with a minimum of brain will be able stay with this wacko and have feeling for her.
Here he goes running again, before the radio show I supoose
It seems like he works at alternative days.
Never mind the radio, it's an old interview
Running with bodyguard, bodyguard needs a diet
TH:"Maybe if I sprint in that direction I can find help"
TH's celebrity pet peeve from The Late Show
>>69 Damn. In the same vein - I thought this was posted here but maybe it was in the previous thread?
He twitted his UNICEF video in which he is sporting a distractingly volcanic pimple. Get onto it makeup!
>>78 I was transfixed by the boil. Its slopes look too mountainous to hide with makeup. He always gets it in the same place, usually when he has been wearing makeup for months and/or appears to be really tired and out of condition (it had a guest role in the later scenes of CP). I did think it wasn't a good sign that it has showed up just after the "holiday". Not enough rest and quiet, and too many pap strolls.
>>79 There's a product that creates temporary scars that indents the skin. We use it on craterous pimples to reduce the swelling and dry them up. I'd say it's a stress pimple considering his circumstances!
For sure she's into voodoo.
I do find it odd that in all the time she has been in Oz she's only been seen twice and both times were deliberate on her part. She must be going out daily and managing to stay under the radar.
>>81 Or staying in. I do wonder if she is the type not to want to venture into Outdoors unless there is a specific project in mind (dinner, pap stroll, shopping trip). Also she has "done" Australia last year so she probably can't be bothered with sightseeing. She is probably facetiming the cats and surfing wedding dress websites.
Now I know why the pimple is back: it has a role in the Marvel universe.
>>82 That volcano is pre- eruption and they need to get onto that product stat or Loki will be sporting a pussy face.
She does strike me as a neurotic housepet who only ventures out of her Rapunzel tower when led by the hand.
No doubt she's online shopping for the wedding since the date is already set and practising her 'surprise face' in the mirror for the imminent proposal which will be in a very public open air space- most likely a beach on some rocks
Are we talking about the 'zits' on the right side of his face near his mouth? I haven't watched the video yet. I'm a little put off by everything and can't be bothered. But I think those aren't temporary but are like cysts of some type, maybe sebacious that are smaller or bigger depending on factors. My husband has one on the side of his chin. It's always there but flares up/ expands when he's not eating right or his skin is unbalanced for some reason.
Bless him for the Hesback hashtag. Don't think it's going to get much traction in the current twitterverse. Maybe it would trend if Katy Perry retweeted it in some evil genius attempt to burn TS.
And I got four retweets in before TS was mentioned. Four.
>>85 they're the ones. I noticed he always gets them in the same place. I assumed it was because he had damaged the pore by picking and now always gets a spot in the same location, but maybe he has a cyst. Definitely any flare up of whatever it is, is caused by stress/tiredness/bad eating.
Missed an O in >>85. Double shame.
I think TS might be holed up in the suite as well. Could be writing music, could be fashioning voodoo dolls. Defo reading her Twitter mentions from fans to calm herself and shouting down the line to her publicist to 'fix this!'
>>86 I just saw the hashtag. Nice try, Tom
. Might as well add #nopooemojisformyGFpleasethankyou and have done with it.
Oh bless, I hadn't noticed he tried to drown out the #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty with #HesBack
I can't help but notice his likes for these UNICEF videos have dropped from 28k to 17k to 4.1k so yeah good luck with that hashtag
>>90 Well he had a spa date with EO back in December 14. So maybe....
Years ago Mr Anon and I were staying in Bangkok and the hotel offered us their his and hers spa suite. We looked at each other in horror and simultaneously wailed "nooooooo!" Some things, such as having your extractions done, are not meant to be enjoyed à deux.
And just like that some candids of TS out shopping (for wedding dresses) appear.
Wearing an overall, of course.
She was doing shopping on a lawn at night?
>>92 Yes, she was happy with it until she decided 48 hours ago that a news cycle couldn't pass without her name being in it. If she was offended about the interview he gave months ago, saying he couldn't see himself working with her in future (which is the BS reason given by the Swifties for reneging on the anonymity) why not make a deal of it then? Or sooner after she had split with him? Why now?
>>94 It's beyond my comprehension... the 'shop' appears to be a store room with a vacuum hose (is she having a backyard abortion?) and in that photo I think she is using her purse as a mobile phone
I found the interview
and what he said was: "You know, we haven't even spoken about it," he admitted. "I can't see it happening though. No. She's about to take a long break."
>>95 Yeah, I imagine she has a virtual drawer full of things to use in case she needs to paint herself as a victim in case of bad press.
>>96,98 #1 is probably the main goal, gotta support those "Tom totally wants to have kids with me" leaks, but #2 is more fun!
>>97 It's a shame his team isn't as onto it as you. This quote would have disjointed a lot of swifty noses and journalists who have misquoted and used it to prove their lame theories.
Here's the 'OMG Tay left her bedroom' article in the Fail
According to a comment on CB the Thor 3 cast plus SOs went to the cinema this evening (as it is now in Oz). Booked out the whole place and came in through the loading bay.
Here we are: https://twitter
I call bs until I see a pic.
Chris drunk? With his kids around? When tomorrow is a workday? His kids up until late at night?
It's 00:51 now in Oz, even if the film started 2 hours ago that's very late for little kids.
Also Tom wasn't with her when she was shopping, so if she came straight to the theater from her shopping trip he'd have gone to the theater separately.
>>107 The Opinion Dominion is back? As well as her side blog todspeaks? Mad world. Is it really her, I wonder? Her side blog said she was not coming back.
TH got the Emmy nomination! Yay!
The old radio interview at the Oz radio that was supposed to air today was postponed to next week.
This is fun
>>93 The constant hair and face touching with TS reminds me of Waity Katie. This girl must be so self-conscious and in need of constant approval. It's strange then that she so often thrusts herself into the limelight. I guess her need for attention and adoration is stronger than the self-consciousness.
To be nominated and have people say that TayTo is behind it,
To not be nominated and have people say that TayTo is behind it,
Such difficult times.
TNM also got its nomination. I don't get how can give the show a nominations and not give a nomination to Hugh Laurie and Coleman.
So the TayTo gravy train will run on for a while longer.
He won't win, surely. I would have thought Courtney Vance has it in the bag.
>>109 I'm glad he got a nom. TNM was good entertainment. But this year is probably going to be all The People v OJ. I recently watched it in a binge and it was excellent. I didn't think I'd like it, but it was so watchable and compelling. Vance must be the front runner for this category.
He's got the nomination! You guys think he'll get papped with Taylor now? It'll overshadow his nomination for sure. Just like she'll overshadow him at the Emmys red carpet.
>>113 Couch, I agree that it wasn't his best - though I blamed it on the direction. I think Bier directed him to play Pine's emotions so close to the vest that Tom's normally expressive face didn't get much of a workout unless he was with Elizabeth Dubecki, or when he was crying at the death of the first girlfriend in Ep. 1. The rest of the time, his 'steely' Bond-esqe face was really steely at all.
>>116 A battle of ego on the red carpet, that would make it worth watching.
I found nobody really stood out, they were good just not outstanding enough for an award (except for Hollander, but only until his character made sense)
>>115 I think so too, but the power of TayTo knows no limit.
>>119 Could be, I tended to think it was his way to go back and forth between his real identity and himself. But Pine felt inconsistent, like a boy playing at being a spy. A NYT journalist did a review of each episodes, her review of the last one is hilarious. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/25/arts/television/the-night-manager-finale-recap.html
I think Coleman and Laurie have noms too in supporting actress/actor categories?
I am so glad you loved OJ. It is the only to series I have ever seen which made me think, that is exactly what it is like to be a trial lawyer. And Sterling K Brown, who played Chris Darden, was just wonderful as well (and the spitting image of CD!). I have to say it made TNM look clunky and not like much of a thriller, especially bearing in mind we all know what happened to OJ.
>>123 Twelve nominations for the show:
Theoanons has now deleted all her posts. The tumblr dramas in this fandom are scary. I know she said she would shut up shop again if opinion dominion got going, but why not just delete the whole thing? It makes no sense.
I am really not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Josh Horowitz caught up with TH and the subject of TS came up....
>>128 Sleepy? What time would it have been over there if he posted this an hour ago? I would expect that he's going to make the relationship official by saying that they are dating which is obvious (I guess) but still needs to come from the horse's mouth. Perhaps he'll talk about all the accusations that it's fake but that would surprise me.
Fawning Variety interview:
>>129 It would be 10 hours ahead of GMT so 4.30am when JH posted. Possibly somewhat earlier when they spoke, as Variety said it spoke to him at 3.30am. But the middle of the night.
I am assuming he will say "yes, we're going out with each other and I'm very happy." And then give that nervous and now Emmy-nominated laugh/cough. I agree he's unlikely to say more. Why give traction to rumours by denying them? Then JH will ask him if they are going to do a duet and he will again go eheh and that will be the end.
A straight confirmation would be nice, so we can make better fun of him pretending not to be interested in the circus of being a celebrity. Too bad he wasn't asked about Harris.
>>129 As to why: in the clusterfuck that is Tom's publicity, who knows exactly. It seems likely JH has a direct line to his people and could get an i'vue at short notice off the back of the nomination.
My own theory is that he knows he will be asked about TayTo, and soon, because of the Emmy nom, the filming and ComicCon, so he needs to get it over with quickly, like a trip to the dental hygienist. I think he hopes that it will be buried under the good news of the nomination - "a good day to bury bad news".
>>130 So he's already doing press for TNM. That didn't take long...and didn't give a nod to time zones/sleeping patterns.
It will be interesting to see how the Tayto show behaves now that he's got to promote TNM for an Emmy and Kong. More, less, the same? Impact, no impact?
I am laughing at this one: the daily run is because no nookie!
"We are together and we are very happy"
>>136 If he has a gf, the stans seek solace in "well maybe they're not having sex yet" And when he was "maybe could be kinda dating" the great JArthy and then Lizzie, it was "oh well sure he's fucking them but he doesn't love them"
>>138 Yep. Let's gear up for more pap strolls and Emmy red carpet!
Another from the managing editor at E! News
Funny how it takes him getting the Emmy nom to confirm. And right after the Calvin stuff too. The timing is exquisite.
And have the prize immediately taken away for posting twice.
>>143 Can we compare to calvin's tweet?
"I figure if you’re happy in your new relationship you should focus on <snip>”
>>142 Too much, when you think until 2 days ago he'd rather talk about the werk.
Am I the only one that finds those words so generic and open to fan interpretation? Don't get me wrong, I've always said the relationship is real (I've had my doubts because of the crazy roll out and stunts but I still believe they are bf and gf.) But come on! This quote isn't going to stop the doubters or the showmance claims.
>>149 Yep. That is precisely how I guessed so accurately what he would say. What do you say to your nosey co-worker to shut down the conversation? He can't say to Josh of all people that he won't comment, as that would make him look a prize moron (and anyway he set this up to get the news out, let's face it).
>>139 I don't think it was completely impromptu. I'd say that they maybe had them lined up for if the Emmy nod happened. The timing is about getting interviews and quotes out as quickly as possible after the announcement.
I think he could have also given her a bigger hand if he wanted to take some heat off of her and the Taylor Swift if Over party. While 'we're together and very happy' is an acknowledgement of the relationship and its current status, it isn't the greatest declaration of love I've ever heard. But then it would be a good thing is Tay said to him, you take the spotlight, you don't need to defend me. I'd give her props for that.
When it rains... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8moGfBJuuJM
The Kardashians are coming for you Tay!! It's like an epic fight between a crazy attention whore and another set of crazy attention whores.
>>152 Maybe he could've had it set up already in preparation for the Emmy nom but making Taylor part of the headline alongside his work? That seemed forced. Like one tumblr commented on The Opinion Dominion "it sounds like he was strong armed into giving lip service to something we already knew" Especially since it comes after Calvin calling them out. Not to mention if you look at Calvin questioning the happiness of the new couple in light of the awkward mess with the media questioning him about Taylor.
>>153 am I the only one who finds this Waaay more credible after this stuff with Calvin over that song came out?
Tom Hiddleston on Relationship With Taylor Swift: "It's Not a Publicity Stunt"
>>156 LOL so all those organised papstroll with his mother just happened.
>>156 "look, the truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we're very happy. Thanks for asking. That's the truth. It's not a publicity stunt."
Lol did he just call his gf by her full name? Who does that?
>>150 yeah, the bad reactions to his his impromptu press conference outside the hotel must have taught him that he can't make it about just the werk anymore. I can't wait for SDCC.
>>158 Someone who is trying to convince the world this is not PR?
Am I the only one who is actually side-eying this more now?
>>158 Has the Hollywood a Reporter heard the full tape, though? It seems slightly unlikely MTV would share their scoop with HL. HL could have made up the "not a publicity stunt" part to get clicks today. Nobody will care about an article tomorrow saying "watch the interview, he didn't quite say that."
>>163 Scratch that - kind of.
HR says it was talking to him. But he said almost exactly the same words to JH. Was this another group interview or has he had these answers written on a card and he says the exact same sentence to each reporter? In which case SIDE EYE
>>162 LOL exactly. I think I've been making that face since the pap stroll with his mother.
Oh, and this was weird too.
Full interview with HR here:
He must be tired because he said this: "Q: Do you know who you're going to take with you to the Emmys? A: I don't. I didn't even know I could. It's 4 in the morning here! (Laughs.)"
>>164 I'm going with Conference call with TS and LW listening in.
Yesterday (Wednesday) I was home early and watched Entertainment Tonight - U.S., and they showed a promo of their upcoming coverage of SDCC. They mentioned key celebs and upcoming movies, and specifically mentioned 'Hiddleswift' while showing pictures of both TH & TS, implying they'd both be there without an actual confirmation directly from either one that they will.
>>170 Yeah, quite.
Also throwing this thought out there: are we expecting HR to interview other worthy nominees today? I think I know the answer to that. How can he not see that the only - the ONLY - reason he is being interviewed about this nomination is because of his relationship with TS and every news outlet scrambling to get the first quote about TayTo.
"Dating Taylor Swift: a nightmare dressed like a daydream?"
This is as scripted as the ISTL interviews were, only after 20 minutes not 20 days:
To EW: "It was one of the most fulfilling experiences of my short life as an actor" (Pine, not shagging TS).
"Of course by now you know that pop star Taylor Swift has been dating seventh-billed Marvel star Tom Hiddleston."
>>171 The need for attention can be so overwhelming that when a person gets it, they either don't care how it comes about or don't see the source.
Luke probs called him and said 'people want to talk about your Emmy nom' and then said under his breath, 'and TS and your relationship.' TH probably didn't hear anything after 'Emmy nom' until TS, LW and her people were putting sound bites into his head.
>>176 I do hope somebody writes an Emmys so White article about how Idris, Cuba and Courtney got nominated and they only interviewed the whitest white guy there.
Glorious DM comments: http://theopdo.tumblr.com/post/147413016909
Among them: "if you have to confirm it's not a publicity stunt, then it probably is" and "you don't need her full name in your answer because she's your girlfriend, remember"
Comment in the Buzz:
'In 2018 this will either be
'Also, Tom Hiddleston was nominated for The Night Manager, so if he and Taylor Swift haven’t married, had a baby and divorced by September, make sure you eat a light lunch on Emmy day. You’ll be heaving a lot when he drops to his knee on the red carpet and proposes to her as she gently caresses her pillow baby.'
>>181 Ouch. Hopefully he'll do it in private at one of her houses and all we'll get is a pic of her ring on her IG. Spare the press
A girl can hope , can't she?
Another delicious treat for Anon to enjoy with her morning cup.
>>183 Michael K is a beautiful shining beacon of hope. I think I love him.
"I love that they're both happy and free together," the supermodel said at a Pepsi event celebrating World Emoji Day. "It's amazing, I'm all about people being happy in love."
I feel so dirty for laughing so hard.
Having worked with Jess I can safely say 'what a bitch'. Jess is genuinely lovely and kind hearted with a great sense of humor. She has excellent taste though so I'm not surprised she dissed the Tay Tay.
>>165 anonsy I'm side eyeing this even more with you.
He doesn't know, LMAO! Is the breakup already planned?
>>168 She is going with him to SDCC, she is never going to let him out of her sight, are you kidding? The guy doesn't even go running without one of her bodyguards, imagine if he'll be allowed to go to a ComiCon with so many other attractive actresses he is friend with.
>>188 WOW! That's scary, and childish since the comment it's not offensive, just accurate.
I love that the media reacted the way we did, with even more scepticism. This is the Guardian's 5th article shading this.
I’ve been asking: “Is their relationship real or is it fake?” But these concepts do not apply here. It seems that much of what Taylor does is a game taking place in real life, or real life taking place in the form of a game. Perhaps, since everything is possible for her, everything is boring except bending reality just to see if it breaks, and employing human beings as actors, and actors as human beings.
>>188 why didn't we celebrate Emoji Day here on the board? 💕 to all of you, 💩 to TH calling his girlfriend "Taylor Swift."
>>192 I don't think Taylor knows when to give up. Its going to get even more cringeworthy and embarrassing to watch as this goes on.
After watching Taylor screw people over through the years with her power and ego trips, it's actually very satisfying watching her get roasted and dragged. Its all catching up to her. And Tom gets to be along for the ride.
>>192 I completely agree with this article. We're all chess pieces in the game. TH chose to participate and picked the wrong year because everyone is lashing out at TS for her past behaviour. On Sunday night, sadly, even Kim Kardashian might include the audio of TS acknowledging that she knew about Kanye's song in advance, and lied at the grammys!
Here's a psychic reading which seems as totally legit as the totally legit quotes direct from the source 💩
Do we have any French friends here? Thinking of you if so, after seeing the horrendous news this morning. Following Istanbul and Dhaka in the last few weeks, it seems like it will never stop.
>>197 That was crazy and fascinating (she really starts on them at 8:00).
I don't think faithful Our Blessed JA is the one. I think she'll be forever silent for him and maybe he'll come back to her in the end.
So if this psychic's readings were ballpark accurate all claims that they're both taking something out of this relationship - roles and music for Bond, plus a rebound relationship to upgrade from Calvin plus the sex - then predictions being made here are correct, down to saying how he's using her as a sugarmomma to gain fame.
"People assumed it was about me getting well-known and leaving her behind" says Hiddleston
>>198 Awkward and genuine I agree with - in the sense that it is a genuine relationship, and oh yes he absolutely feels awkward having to talk about it.
I get off the love boat when I start looking at the hugely calculating and manipulative context in which the genuine relationship sits. For example someone has had a conversation with him in which he was told, if you get an Emmy nomination, you have to use any resulting interview to mention the relationship and shut down the bad publicity (ha!). So although the relationship is real, and the sentiment expressed is too, the circumstances are yet again manufactured.
So she wasn't at the movies: CH says on Friday morning he hasn't met her yet.
>>203 I have never seen this before. He sounds like a bit of an arsehole TBH. "It's just that I am very driven right now." Who says that about themselves with a straight face? Also "it's not you, it's me." Always the best way to break up with someone.
Is this going to be amazing or shit? His expression says "I am Acting and also flexing my bicep so you can see how much I've been working out recently."
>>207 I find these stills as confusing as his relationship. I know they had giant skull props so why does it look so fake?
>>205 Thank you for finding this, because I read that the guy who tweeted about Ts being at the cinema, later retracted saying he wasn't at the cinema but home. Plus the timeline didn't fit.
And if TH had just got home with her from the cinema, would he really say "I don't know who I'm bringing to the Emmy Awards?" to her face?
>>206 This one was interesting, because it appeared on the DM the day after Susannah went public with her new, and present, bf (who she only met at the beginning of February that year). On San Valentina that year TH tweeted a song of a day thing "Be My Baby" and then added "I'm not gonna say who xxx" (eyeroll).
I think they were on a break and he was making a last attempt to convince SF to stay with him. Iirc, at the time both TH and SF were represented by the same PR agency, so this little interview was probably coordinated.
>>209 It's a common problem of these blockbusters set in times too ancient to appeal to the millenials, ergo the modernized outifts, but who also needs to look realistic for the adults who might remember the world 50 years ago. Basically a mess, like TNM.
Did someone post the fuller version of this? Or a screencap of the article (possibly I did)? Anyhow here it is again.
Should we all play along? From this point on...until the end, the bitter, ash covered end.
>>214 Yes please! Hahaha.
BTW thanks for the Michael K wake up call. Poor MK - I think he is starting to sound a little jaded, like Hunter S Thompson after Henry Kissinger got appointed.
Sigh. We'll be seeing more and more blinds like this now I'm assuming http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2016/07/blind-item-1-1371.html
>>210 So the radio interview that Chris and Tom made where he says he hasn't met her and everyone is saying that proves TS did not come to the GB screening? The interview was pre-taped on Thursday before the movie, and people at the cinema tweeted that she was there. Someone on tumblr wrote a formal timeline but that's the gist of it.
>>218 Daily Fail reporting again. I did check and they specifically said they spoke within him on Friday morning. Can't get anything right.
>>217 I say go for it. Hit that one out of the park, Tayto. Get engaged RIGHT before the Emmy RC and then walk it together.
Give no thought to how Emmy bosses, voters, fellow actors, producers, etc will seeeeeeeth at your antics and sad grab for attention. Because the Emmy's should be about two people 'in lurve' and not about....what is it....the...the...the WORK.
From what I understand 1 person tweeted that she was there. This same person said that he himself wasn't there, his friends were messaging him and his friends never actually saw her. He also said that CH was drunk during the outing. This person is also a massive TS fan.
Whiplash : first this Engagement story - http://www.celebuzz.com/2016-07-13/tom-hiddleston-propose-taylor-swift-soon/
then this denial story : http://www.gossipcop.com/tom-hiddleston-proposing-taylor-swift-engaged/
This from the sarcastic VF film/TV critic who declared TH gay a few days ago.
>>222 The celebuzz story is just off the tails of the Us story. It's not really an 'they're engaged story.' And it's from July 13, the same date as the GC post denying the Us story which was releases, I think, a day earlier.
>>224 right not 'they're engaged' but proposal plans.
Where and when would you need 11 bodyguards? Well, ET just reported that's what the #SOHAPPY couple needed to get into the theatre last night to see GB.
'Everything in the Swift universe is shrouded in confusion these days, as observers wonder about her obsessively paparazzi-documented relationship with Hiddleston. By now, many assume it’s a PR stunt or performance art. It wasn’t helped by Hiddleston’s awkward interview with the Hollywood Reporter on Thursday, as he denied their relationship was for publicity, and made sure to use his famous girlfriend’s first and last name so everyone would know who he was talking about: “The truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we’re very happy.”'
"There are certain inevitable aspects of online life that are guaranteed to stress an individual out, to cause an elevated heart rate and tiny beads of sweat to appear above the upper lip. For me, they are: any post with more than two hashtags, the sight of someone else’s phone teeming with bright red, unread texts and emails, and primarily, happy photos of celebrity couples. If one half of that celebrity couple is Taylor Swift, multiply the cringe factor by about four.
>>227 Nice picture of TH.
I read the tweets before they were deleted, guess i missed the 11 (thought it said 5 or 6)
To ridiculous not to share. This must be the reason she bought her own plane!
“I know that my friend who works for airport security said one time Taylor Swift tried to bring fucking candles onto her flight, like they asked ‘do you intend to light these’ and she was like 'um yeah,’ and when they said she couldn’t light the candles and had to not have them on a carryon she threw a fit.” - Anonymous
>>230 I had to read that twice. She tried on a commercial flight? How old was she?
In case anyone still cares about what he does for a living, he actually talked about Thor3, saying even less interesting things than usual. Amazing
The radio interview was definitely on Friday
TOD found this, I pray for the Emmy to ask Harris to take care of the music for the Emmys or the Golden Globe, or the Baftas
>>236 that's true! Maybe I need a vacation from this.
I'm starting myself on a withdrawl program bombarding myself with TH thinking man poses. It's working a treat.
ONTD random picture thread - they've crowned them with a new name - Lord & Taylor.
ONTD thread about the Hollywood Reporter article, someone's hilarious parody: http://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/102550835.html?thread=17628651059#t17628651059
>>239 hahahaha, that's a good one to add to my own program.
Apologies for the Daily Fail link - but this latest suggest they met in February, but has no detail about how and when:
>>243 I'm all ears for a cheating scandal- it seems the most likely explanation at this point, but February? He was filming in Oz, did a quick trip to Berlin, then filming in Vietnam. I have no interest in looking up her movements but I'd be truly amazed if their paths intersected.
I love the use of the word 'vacated'; she didn't cheat, she od'd on valium, wafted out of the building and wrapped her vapour around TH.
>>244 Yeah same here. It seems highly unlikely. The truth will out at some point.
Katie Kloss and Karlie Kloss don't seem to be related.
If you go to kt_kloss on instagram, supermodel Karlie does not appear to be related to Katie Kloss, stunt woman/model from the skull island wrap party pics. Super model Karlie's sisters are Kristine, Kimberly and Kariann, and she has no brothers. By contrast, stunt woman/model Katie Kloss appears to also have a brother in a family surfing snap on her instagram. There are also many pics of Karlie and her sisters on E! news website and one from Teen Vogue on google, and Katie Kloss does not match their pics.
>>244 I can't see them meeting in February. I think they met in May and she liked what she saw and started up with him before she saw Calvin off (note the DM says they met in Feb but got together in May).
That is still scandal enough for her to want to cover up with the lightning roll out. In a way it is worse because she meets TH on 2 May and starts shagging him more or less straight away. Not much time for "we became friends and texted a lot and gradually realised we were one another's soul mate." Just good old fashioned saw something new and traded up immediately.
This is interesting. As I mentioned previously, this is one of the most followed tumblr blogs (at least since Torrilla was deleted). If she says nobody is posting or reblogging, then she is in a position to know. Other people I follow are moaning that they are losing followers hand over fist. Still others are suddenly posting Sebastian Stan 24/7 and little to no TH (why? definitely not my second choice, but anyway!).
In the compound. Before the pics in the ocean were taken (see quality of temporary tattoo). Notably not wearing the white t shirt:
Here's a clip making the rounds of TS leaving AW's pre-MET gala dinner. She's walked out to her SUV first. TH and IE are essentially walking just beyond it.
She: Nice to meet you.
Idris: see you my love
For those looking for a Hiddles 'out', here's some more visual inspiration:
>>251 It's particularly a load of 💩 if, as the Swifty apologists on tumblr claim, GC has a direct line to Swift's publicist. Which means that all the articles in GC are themselves a form of damage control.
>>248 I get it. He lost everything that made him endearing and unique. Even if this stunt were to end I certainly not going back.
If this was part of the plan, it was a shitty plan. Swifties don't have the age to support his work in films. And since his theatre cred went down the drain, he can kiss goodbye to selling out tickets in a whiff.
You guys might have seen this at TOD, a gif of Nicholas Hoult saying that he did (the film Equals) as a tribute to Tayto.
The gif didn't include the question so I found the original video.
I'm reading at the TOD that the Swifties claim Levi said TH will attend NerdHQ. Aside from the fact that a free Q&A right now would be hilarious, NerdHQ has already announced its program.
Ouch! Bill Maher shading Tayto.
>>255 I had to look up the movie. The synopsis reads: In an emotionless utopia, two people fall in love when they regain their feelings from a mysterious disease, causing tensions between them and their society.
'The Shake It Off singer is allegedly hoping to 'boost' their power couple status in a tell-all chat with Ellen DeGeneres'
>>259,260 I loved Hoult's ironic poke. Needless to say, the Swifties thought it was a compliment.
>>261 Yikes! Please let it be true, so he'll never be able to go back to the UK.
>>263 If it does eventuate I insist we all watch it live and have a shot each time they say #HAPPY
It appears the Swifties are able to maintain such a high level of optimism due to a complete lack of irony and critical analysis, much like Trump supporters.
>>264 We could live watch then take shots then comment on here as we go. Board anarchy!
Has Ellen inherited Oprah's sofa? Will TH jump on it to show us how much he's in love?
>>264 We might end up drunk within the first minute.
hahahaha, isn't that the truth!
"A romantic night in for two? Tom Hiddleston is every inch the doting boyfriend as he steps out to grab some takeaway and a bottle of wine for girlfriend Taylor Swift"
I also think in one of the photos he was actually thinking "Damn, I can't remove my eyeglasses with my hands busy"
Somehow the Fail have managed to squeeze an article out of TH picking up take-away.
Is he... is he talking to the takeaway bag?
>>271 Maybe he reached the point where even a takeaway bag is a more interesting conversationalist than Taylor Swift (let's use her full name like he does)
My theory is true. She really is holed up in that hotel 24/7 and only emerges for shopping trips. If she has sent him out for takeaway they must be sick of room service, and that must be because she never leaves the hotel. She's on the Gold Coast having a holiday and she sits in a suite all day. What a sad life.
>>274 Indeed. And the reason for it is her obsession with PR and her security paranoia.
>>273 >>274 I agree, she is Rapunzeling the shit outta that penthouse and obviously driving him so mad he's unnecessarily volunteering to pick up takeaway so he can talk to the paper bag instead of TS. Even if she has eaten her way through their menu and the hotel restaurants, they have staff on hand to pick up their orders.
What a sad comparison to SI antics (which were ironically based on TSs' squad antics).
Morning! I shrugged off church this morning - baby too tired (best excuse in the world).
Is he walking with/talking to the guy in the grey top and beanie? Is that the bodyguard/guard we've seen him with a few times? Maybe not or he'd help a dude out!
>>277 Oopsie. Meant to say trainer. Is that the trainer? (This no caffeine thing is kicking my ass hard. They say that having a glass of cold water in the morning is just as invigorating as having tea or coffee - they are LIARS!)
>>276 I don't know how long he'll be in SD at CC, but I'm getting the sneaking suspicion that she's going to stay put in Oz while he flies out and returns. If she's happy to stay up in the room for days at a time (writing music? writing positive comments on the DM articles? shouting at her PR people over the phone?) then why wouldn't she be happy to continue?
I know he got himself into this shit, but I did feel sorry for him when I saw a pic Torrilla posted - he is standing looking lost surrounded by 4 or 5 people, each of whom is taking a picture of him on their phone, as if he is an animal in the zoo.
Where is Olly?
>>279 Again, your kind heart shines out. I want a Attenborough voiceover: 'Here we have the celeb bf gathering food for his mate.'
While my husband fulfills Sunday obligations for three, I've been going over the ONTD threads. They're almost as hi-larry as Dlisted. One link to a vid of TS and Stevie Nicks caught my attention. The comment said that Nicks doesn't allow autotune to be used during her gigs (don't know if that's true) so TS had to perform without it. It's ear-opening. How many others use autotune to sound good? Because I always thought TS had a very good voice. Not Adele, but good.
>>281 Did you listen to the link I posted of her singing live at the VMAs isolated from the backing track? Painful.
I am having a day of feeling sorry for Tom. I think it is the weather here (very hot and clammy - it is enervating my inner Sunday bitch into a puddle of gloom). Am I overanalysing here or does he look slightly lost and sad in these pics? He is dating a super rich famous pretty person, and this is his life - being sent out for takeout and photographed by shameless tourists.
Nooooooo. Sad face.
They aren't going on Ellen. And this debunking by GC is from "Swift's rep" so it is probably true. http://www.gossipcop.com/taylor-swift-tom-hiddleston-ellen-degeneres-interview/
>>282 I don't think he looks lost, but I'm also thinking that he should be used to this sort of thing by now; he's had it for the past month. Still it must be strange, even given his previous fame.
>>283 You can tell they've turned that hotel suite into PRHQ. Every article, every comment, every snake emoji is being scrutinized and they are responding to it. What a life.
>>274 morning sickness does that to you. Apparently.
>>284 Here is the footage of the takeout run! I think beany hat man is the bodyguard. What a life, taking a security guard to get takeaway.
Why is Taylor being so mean to Calvn when she's pregnant with his child?
An unintended gem from that Gossip Cop article:
“A so-called “source” is quoted as saying in the Mirror, which picked up its story from the Daily Star, “*The simple truth is that Taylor is in love* and, as well as showing off her new man to her fans, she feels a friendly interviewer like Ellen could really help boost their standing as as power couple, as well as Tom’s Hollywood career.” But the story is entirely untrue."
For once what the photos suggested was right, pink-tshirt girl was approaching him.
>>286 Yep bodyguard, I thought strange he would be allowed to go out alone. I'm afraid that the video also confirms that he doesn't look lost at all, which all in all would be difficult to believe, he has just said he is very happy with Taylor, Taylor Swift!
>>281 hahahaha she sings as off key as Audrey! No wonder her parents had to buy her a record company.
>>289 Yes. Not looking lost but very definitely not stopping for the fan encounters, even with the little kid. He said "thanks man" to the "Emmy congrats" and sailed on by. Never looked back. He's over us. All of us.
>>291 Oh yeah. Maybe that's why he was jostling with bottles and paper bags, the perfect excuse to refuse contact.
I think that's the trainer. I'm not going to compare with previous pics, but he's not wearing an earpiece. Her bodyguards always wear earpieces. Even the one that took her shopping - he was alone - wore an earpiece.
I saw on another site that he was seen having breakfast with the trainer...on a balcony. I dismissed it as rubbish but maybe trainer is his non-TS companion. When she's writing or sleeping or down-arrowing nasty comments on DM, he hangs with the trainer.
>>293 He has always hung out with few friends. He spent every waking hour with Olly until he got back from the Publicity Tour of Doom. He seems to latch onto A Bloke and then hang out with him. He was third wheeling Olly and that ghastly assistant to Vogt-Roberts for most of his time in Vietnam and Oz.
>>293 Breakfast with the trainer...Chances are those paper bags were also for dinner with the trainer. Are we sure TayTo are sharing the same bedroom?
>>294 Taking a well deserved vacation from buying coffee, underwear and condoms for his charge, I hope. Glad he doesn't have to deal with this PR nightmare of the moment.
Captcha proclaims 'he seen' as in nobody knows the trouble....
>>295 Oh no, those paper bags are for their heads, for their next outing. Tay is going to get all crafty on those bags and bejazzle the shit out of hers then realise they have to matchy match so she'll turn TH into a rhinestone cowboy
Seems he's being a little schizophrenic in regards to moods. Paps: not happy. No paps: happy. Or TS fan: no pic. TH fan: pics and smiles.
This is the funniest thing I have seen for a few days. Luke retweets the GC article denying an Ellen interview and the replies are hilarious:
>>281 I love that video so much. Stevie can't hide her disgust.
Where is that mind- blowing comment from? I want to hunt it down and give it a giant thumbs up!
>>283 Crying rivers face
>>284 Maybe those extra bedroom are for their publicists. There are some unfounded rumors flying around that Luke is in Oz on damage control. While there are no sources I wouldn't be surprised if he is being heavily prepped for ComicCon. It's a potential minefield and he can't be stammering declarations of love for Taylor Swift
>>301 Maybe the young girl was a Swifty so he moved on and the little kids could've been Marvel fans. So he posed with ppl who were fans of his work. I haven't seen the vids. Just the pics.
‘Tom turned up for the first day of filming with Taylor in tow,’ the source tells New Idea. ‘They were beaming with excitement and blurted out their engagement news to all the cast and crew.’
'Wait it's legit National Snake Day?!?!?They have holidays for everybody, I mean everything these days! 🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍'
I think this tape might just break the internet.
>>305 And Taylor Swift is done. That Kim Kardashian doesn't mess around. Can't wait to see what Taylor's next move will be.
>>306 We all theorised at the beginning that this relationship was a deliberate ploy to distract from this drama. Does this give that theory legitimacy now?
If so, do we expect an engagement/ pregnancy announcement or a quit and run?
TH, forget the wine and water, go back for VODKA.
This is so much fun, the Swifties are LOSING IT!
>>307 If they try a major distraction, or at this point even something as minor as a pap walk, everyone will see right through it. Their only options are to say "screw it" and quit, or just disappear for a while. Breakup or no, I think Taylor might go back to the U.S. when Tom goes to Comic Con and then go into hiding to "work on her album" or something. I think at the very least the timing of everything with TayTo was an attempt to bury the Kim and Kanye drama, but it didn't work.
'I like Tom Hiddleston a lot but right now he's basically a small flightless bird someone accidentally brought to a gang fight'
>>312 I agree. The relationship will have to fade quietly into the sunset. No announcements, or it will look fake. Well, more fake than it already does, anyway. ;) Based on all the other terrible decisions they've made, they're probably going to try and gain sympathy for her by staging some public fight where Tom is very mean to poor Taylor.
Taylors ex publicist just 'liked' this tweet.. AMAZEBALLS
Taylor responds with a whinge:
>>316 Yassssss. The most delusional whinge back imaginable. As if 'that bitch' comes close to being the most insulting line about her in that song! Seriously her stupid young stans will believe this excuse but there is SO MUCH evidence she has lied in all these videos.
It won't be long before clever people compile all the evidence in simple enough memes for the deluded Swifties to comprehend.
>>315 Wow...she's much more pathetic than I imagined lol Didn't the line he quoted give her any indication? It's not like he dropped the bitch line in the middle of rapping about how straight up cool and OG Taylor is.
The one thing this relationship isn't is boring. Holy fuck at the sheer amount of publicity and crazy shenanigans.
The whole video is out now and Taylor really doesn't have a leg to stand on.

Approaching 1000 comments. http://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/102590244.html?page=5
>>322 There's three epic threads going on this!
>>323 Fav comment: "The truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we're very happy." TH: In light of recent events, I'd like to amend my statement.
>>323 Someone in the comments pointed out that the back button in the top left of Taylor's response is not "Notes" as it would be if she had just typed it up, but rather "Search," meaning she's had that response ready for quite some time and had to search her notes app to find it.
I so want TH to tweet something supportive - just like S Gomez - so that I can watch twitter eviscerate him.
>>298 I actually think pink-tshirt girl was hi fans and these kids were Swifties, mainly for the age. But in either cases, I'd say he did it because he was in from of his hotel and there were more chances of paps catching him not be nice to kids.
I don't know how many remember KimKardashian interview back in June, but she basically quoted this video word for word, she WAS telling the truth.
The last part of the second video is quite telling about TS, she is already organizing her PR "People will say it's shade but then like at the Grammy I will say that I'm cool with it that it's great".
Just saw this on twitter. I think my bs meter is broken but I wouldn't put it past her. Poor Tom if it's true:
'US Weekly reports that Kim Kardashian claims to have a picture of Taylor Swift cheating on Tom Hiddleston.''
>>326 I want him to go for a run and be swarmed by paps and journalists and listen to him "hehehehe" his ass out of this.
>>323 You are correct. Many threads today on her at:
You can bet TH will be frantically searching for a passive- aggressive philosophical excerpt to post sans comment but the poor bastard is probably stuck at work and has been throughout the drama, fielding her insane texts and rants in- between takes and fluffing all his lines.
The crew will have little sympathy for her dramas interrupting his performance if that eventuates. Lets hope he can keep his shit together till he gets home (via the bottle shop).
>>329 Kim and Kayne were at the Met Gala, weren't they?
Every time I quit this mess it sucks me right back in again.
>>329 I hope it's true, and I hope it's with Karlie Kloss.
>>325 to no avail, her reply is pathetic no matter what.
List of things on TS table right now:
>>336 Wow, I thought Lourdes was part of the squad. Keeping track with these children feuds and state of things is a nightmare.
>>334 I quit being his fans, I stay to see his downfall. I have absolutely no pity for him and whenever I do I remember all the not so wonderful things he chose to do since at least the end of May, like choosing to be with this silly puerile girl or pimping out his family for whatever reason (family that we'll forever be associated with such a lying moron)
>>340 Oops forgot to look for the blue tick
Apparently Harry Styles just posted a snake emoji and quickly deleted it
I am always asleep when the TH-related shit goes down!
Guardian article pointing out that KW didn't say the line "I made that bitch famous" but that really TS is in the position of Bill Clinton saying he never had sex with Monica. It's pretty obvious she approved the sentiment generally and she told him to use whatever lyric he thought best: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2016/jul/18/taylor-swift-condemns-kim-kardashians-release-of-kanye-west-phone-call
>>329 Please god let KKW have a photo of Taylor snogging Tom at the Met Gala. Please.
>>323 Michael K is so right. TH wrote the line "character assassination."
Not least because before last night TS thought "character assassination" was what happened to Corky in ep 5 of The Night Manager.
Summary: Taylor is battling in court with David Mueller, a former radio host who she alleges groped her during a 2013 meet and greet before a Denver concert. Mueller is suing her for slander while she's brought counterclaims alleging sexual assault and battery. An original videotape will be made of Taylor's deposition, and will remain in the custody of Taylor's business manager. Plaintiff's counsel must be provided reasonable access to the videotape. The deposition would only become public if there's a trial, though excerpts of transcripts could appear in summary motion papers.
>>346 He's gonna put a ring on it. He won't back out now, he'll sink with the Titanic.
Imagine having to listen to her bitchy rants with her squad after a long day at work. So fucking tedious.
>>348 The guy lost his job because of what she said. If he is right and she falsely slandered him, she is a bitch on wheels.
Lawyer's perspective: countersuing someone often makes me raise my eyebrows. On occasion it happens because the parties had a huge beef against one another, and it was just that one party issued proceedings first so the other had to countersue. More often in my experience it is a tactic used by a defendant who is bang to rights. It indicates that you didn't consider what happened was worth suing first and you only deploy it to sling some mud in your defence. The classic example is, lawyer sues client for unpaid fees. Client has never previously complained about the standard of service but countersues for squillions of ££ saying that lawyer was negligent.
>>350 who has the burden of proof for slander in the US? The DJ or TS?
>>349 I think so too. I think he might have convinced himself that since he got his Emmy nomination in spite of the backlash, all of this won't have any affect on his career.
>>349 I still don't think he's going to go all the way with this. If he does, I'll be convinced he's gay.
>>352 He has the burden of proof on the stuff he alleges (slander). She has the burden of proof on what she alleges (assault).
>>354 is is going to be a variation of retail rules (you broke it you own it). Like, we saw you walking all round the shop with to in your basket so now you have to buy it?
>>348 The article I read was lenient towards the accused. He claims it was his boss who groped her ass, not him, which is why video proof has been demanded.
While I used to be a flag carrying feminist demanding every perpetrator of menial harassment is dragged to court, my tune has changed.
Honestly, who hasn't been groped at least 50 times? Not that I condone it but such things should be dealt with immediately with a slap on the cheek and some really harsh words. On Japanese trains it's so common there's an established etiquette whereby you grab the man's hand and hold it up for everyone to see so he's publicly humiliated.
He runs with the trainer, but aren't those 2 dudes in the back TS bodyguards?
>>358 My thoughts exactly. End the guy's career....wow.
We don't have depositions at all in the UK. But my understanding is that taping them is totally routine in the US, as is having the other party attend during the deposition. So she wanted special treatment, which she has been denied.
>>362 Tom has been bribing Trainer with balcony breakfasts and takeout food to help him escape. Taylor caught wind of his plan and stationed two bodyguards to keep an eye on Tom in case he and Trainer decided to make a break for it.
>>363 Well, there was video of her talking to Kanye and she lied about that anyway, so clearly the concept of video evidence means nothing to her.
Holy fuck. Kat Dennings liked KKW's tweets...does anyone outside the squad like TS?
>>355,363 whether or not the groping happened, she is going to have a hard time proving it without a video. While he on the other hand can easily prove that her accusation cost him his career. And if he has video proving that it was his boss, then she is in trouble.
The interview with JH on Happy Sad Confused.
Only listened to the intro so far but it is WEIRD. JH seems to say:
>>370 TH: "worth staying up for". So he did stay up to see if he's been nominated....!
>>370 Josh says "He is apparently dating Taylor Swift." LOL
Just listened to the intro. That was the most uncomfortable I've ever heard Josh Horowitz sound. As a matter of fact, his tone was verging on downright annoyed when he was talking about Taylor Swift. Wow.
"We caught up literally moments after he had been nominated because he wanted to revel in his fun moment, and who am I to say no to that?
....We don't talk about that [TS] in this conversation. It was brought up, partially because it's so in the news he kind of wanted to, I think he wanted to address it in some way and he wanted to acknowledge that this, you know, is a thing,....so we ran an article in MTV News....you're not going to hear me talk about TS in this, that wasn't my agenda, that wasn't his agenda, I don't really care that much to talk about that kind of thing and I don't think he does either. The quote he gave me was, I think, simply to nip it in the bud, hopefully, and hopefully not, like, to turn it into a bigger thing than it already is."
I read a comment I think on ONTD (one of millions so I can't find it) which rang true about this whole scenario.
The commenter suggested that this whole relationship rollout was rushed to distract from this explosion which at the time appeared imminent- the Kardashians were threatening to release the recordings with the magazine article. The kissing on the rocks photos would have sufficed in smothering the release of the tapes.
>>373 Yes, Josh didn't sound quite so heart-eyes for Tom as I've come to expect.
>>374 That is frighteningly plausible. KKW gave the interview to GQ print magazine, so because of the turnaround she would have had no way of knowing what TS might be up to 2 months hence when it was published. Whereas when it is imminently about to be published TS gets a heads up from her publicist and she buries it.
>>374 I can buy that, I don't put anything past TS after all I've been reading. Is the fact that TH agreed to it that irks me to no end.
>>375 For the moment. I bet KW did tell her about the bitch part too and KKW will release it in due course. TS would have been better off admitting to it or saying nothing. But she is too childish and petty.
Project "We fell in love at the Met and publicised the shit outta our love" is still sad with the added sting of a melty heart and that moment of terror when you take off the beer goggles and see that the woman you're enamoured with is a two- faced bitch
>>379 Uh-oh, did you get permission before you called her a bitch? Miss Swift doesn't approve of the b-word. Watch out or her next Instagram rant and/or hit song will be about "that meanie-head Anonon."
And Harry Styles: http://gitsie007.tumblr.com/post/147589193538/coffeethcughts-wow
I'll love the Swifty apologists trying to spin that one so they are rilly rilly good friends.
>>381 Ha! In his young age Styles might have been wise enough to not want to drag on a pointless fight, but that doesn't he was ok with her shading him in her song. And without his consent. Talk about double standards.
>>382 Pharrell too? On twitter? Wow!
Here's Selena embarrassing herself
>>384 She couldn't give two fucks about taking sides on BLM?
All right then. That is for confirming what we already knew.
The woman who wrote this article has problems of her own
>>386 I saw. She is competing with the tumblr crazies for most butt kissing fan of the year award.
Still if the guardian wants him to go to the Hite House Correspondents' dinner or give them an interview ever ever again, I suppose they have to run this shit.
>>387 Given the present situation, I doubt the Guardian will ask him to represent them soon. TH on the other hand might need to go back into the Guardian's good grace.
The only thing I agreed with this imbecile was that it's unfair to claim that TH is a poor victim of events.
I've never checked TS instagram but I read she removed all of TH's photos. I only remember the veranda photo, were there others?
>>363 Can't the DJ just ask her to stand up and turn around in court? This would conclusively prove that she has no ass, and thus no one could have grabbed something that doesn't exist? Or did she get ass implants as well as breast implants?
>>369 CM recently dragged Kim for using sex to sell her image...but then CM posted a load of bikini shots to her IG and was called out for it. That, I would think, brought about KhK's pic.
It really is a spider's web of shit.
>>370 No conversation about the relationship? Just for the print edition? Bitch DID NOT want to go on the taped record with talk about this relationship. He obviously realized the trouble that could cause....
>>345 'Please god let KKW have a photo of Taylor snogging Tom at the Met Gala. Please.'
YES. A thousand times, YES. Okay I need to go to church today because NOW I have something to pray for.
I loved this. Tinhattery backed up by science! http://nymag.com/selectall/2016/07/was-taylor-swift-betrayed-by-her-own-notes-app.html
>>373 '...One we all know and love...' Oh, Josh, this isn't true at all, is it? We don't know him and the love is gone too.
>>393 Yes!!! What with the TS shenanigans today that very revealing little intro from Josh has not received the analysis it deserved. Bitch:
1) stayed up for the Emmy nominations
>>395 That one is a gem. Who keeps a list of reply statements just in case? A paranoid PR centred person.
>>397 5) reused comments from the ISTL promo tour.
>>386 I noticed that the author was called out for her failed logic in the comments which were then quickly closed. All's right with the world.
>>401 The impeccable ability of the British far left to show tolerance for dissenting voices by silencing them.
By the way, there might be video of the whole lot. KKW said that a videographer was filming the recording session: http://nymag.com/thecut/2016/06/heres-why-taylor-swift-kissed-tom-hiddleston.html?mid=facebook_nymag
Really?! Talk about double standards, shall we send this to the idiot at the Guardian?
>>407 I fully believe that his genitals are currently burrowing up into his body in some sort of defensive move. He's going to end up curled into a ball like a potato bug soon.
I understand being British and non-confrontational but I just feel like he needs to nail his colors to the mast - in some respect. That quote he gave to JH and THR did naught but bring more scorn. At this point I'd up-vote a tweet in support of TS (God, help me!) because at least he'd show some fucking balls. Where are the balls, TH? Get them out...or at least one of them!
>>408 His balls are currently inflating Taylor's new girls. And I don't think she's giving them back anytime soon lol
Now that it's become obvious from Josh's podcast that Tom was pushed into sharing his Emmy headline with Taylor, I'm waiting to see if she'll try to ride on his coattails again, using something that's about his work to get some lip service from him for herself. This whole showdown with Kimye also makes me wonder if Taylor went for Tom with the sole intention of using him as a shield. A willing shield who didn't really understand the extent of the shitstorm he was about to get pulled into.
Story made up by Taylor's publicist, who must be hoping like Anon. that he will grow a pair: http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/taylor-swift-is-upset-by-kimye-drama-tom-hiddleston-has-been-so-supportive-w429686
>>411 Actually, I think Us is floating its own stories at lot these days; wasn't it the one that gave us 'engagement watch' before GC shut that down?
And this is a pretty pathetic 'supportive boyfriend' article. He's 'telling her to be calm?' Yeah, because he doesn't want to pay for anything else she breaks in the penthouse!
>>412 "We've had it this week and it's not your birthday!"
Is Jason Mitchell on the ComicCon panel next weekend?
lmao kim let that tea brew for months to bring out the flavor for taylor to enjoy 💀
>>412 I cannot actually imagine TH being of use during any crisis. Or of use in any practical way. He must be domestically quite helpless, surely? He has all the impracticability of the wafting luvvie, combined with being the man who owns 3 pairs of socks, one jumper with holes and precious little furniture other than a leather bean bag. Such a man usually owns a nice flat but turns it into a pigsty of his own making, in which he grunts around quite contentedly.
>>410 The main reason I think he was pushed into it because he only mentioned it in the print piece. Because Josh wasn't interested and Tom certainly isn't interested in talking about her going by his awkward "pliss my werk can we talk abt my werk". Also the line read too much like a scripted one than something a bf would say about his gf because he's tired of ppl dumping on them as a couple.
>>416 Going by those tweets, Jason is clearly not a Swift supporter, in fact it would appear he can't stand her. I think it's safe to assume there will be tension.
>>416 Someone said on ONTD that Conan O'Brien is leading the panel. This means TH needs to worry about the audience, his fellow panelists, and the moderator. Conan is a comedian and no comedian will be able to fully pass up this opportunity, I'd think.
What most people have been saying all along. Which suggests he knew it all along.
Jon Voight-Roberts is now involved. SDCC is going to be messy.
Misspelled his name but you know who I mean
For some reason the live cut to a spiraling lobster? has me in spasms!
Wow. Really? Really? Comparing the murder of an innocent woman to Taylor's lying twitter(.)com/JosephKahn/status/755145643832713216
Is he trying to make the comparison that Kanye and Kim are trying to murder Taylor? What the hell is wrong with him? It's such petty crap and he's comparing to something horrific like murder.
>>420 He's taken quite a few steps back from his original tweet, making sure not to implicate Tay Tay.
I realise he has to be diplomatic for the sake of his films' promotion but his excuse that the creatives are entirely responsible for plagiarising isn't really valid. While the 'original' idea and content is formulated by the ad agency, TS and her team approved it. I don't believe TS had never seen the original viral video but I'll give her the shady benefit of the doubt that she may not have known they were copying without permission.
>>423 Her defenders are showing themselves up to be quite a pack of imbeciles.
Meanwhile celebrities keep supporting the takedown... TS has definitely been stepping on toes.
This is like a Revenge of the Nerds fantasy
>>408 Ha, if he had balls, integrity and brains he would call quits now. Like others before him. We'll all know it'd be to preserve his career, but his fangirls and nannies will say that he finally realized that she is nuts and at least he'd save a minimum of dignity and reputation.
WB's panel is not just about Kong, the full list includes: Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad, The Lego Batman Movie, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Kong: Skull Island and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
>>425 I think I'll be joining anonsy in her tin foil cave because this is just getting too nasty now. Racism is starting to rear its ugly head and if Taylor goes with the "scary brute black man attacking the poor helpless white woman" narrative and Tom stays and sides with her in his usual passive manner, it'll speak volumes about him.
>>429 I do think she was probably raised that way, on the 'be nice and civil but don't let them get too close and NEVER DATE BLACK MEN' level. On the 'make sure you have a token at your 4oJ party for the pictures' level.
And yes, on the 'be nice to any scary looking black men and just between you me and the wall they are all scary except Pharrell' level. I'm not the only one who thought she was sounded like she was placating Kanye on the recording. There's a reason why she is rumored to be very popular with White Nationalists in the US - she only dates white guys and has white close friends (not sure if Selena is getting a pass on this or if they just don't notice her).
So there's this pic of Tom at what appears to be LAX that showed up Monday night: https://www.instagram.com/p/BIBThadjRdJ/
And the poster (not 100% sure if it's the guy in the picture but it seems to be) claims Taylor took the pic.
And a comparisonof TS to the 'everyone hates Anne Hathaway' months of 2012/13: http://www.businessinsider.com.au/something-else-is-going-on-with-taylor-swift-and-its-ugly-2016-7
>>433 Bullshit comparison. Anne Hathaway did nothing wrong and got mocked for basically no reason. Taylor Swift is getting dragged because she's seemed like a phony for years and finally got caught in one of her backstabbing lies. Not at all the same thing, Business Insider.
>>427 I will be SHOCKED if TS goes. He works hard at those events- not a spare minute. If anything she'll fly with him to LA to sort out her mess of a life and hopefully stay there.
>>429 The company TS keeps and flaunts has I think been one of the main reasons his fans balk at the union. They are not exactly 'cultured' or 'evolved' and it's becoming apparent some of them are bigots.
>>430 It's an interesting theory. I have a slightly different one.
I bet she is a republican. Just because celebs who are democrats tend to be very vocal about it and celebs who are republican tend to keep it pretty quiet. I don't think she has ever stated a political view of any kind, and she certainly hasn't done anything so vulgar as support Hillary or Bernie, so I am guessing she is republican. It would figure as well given her background.
>>436 I can see that, for all the reasons you listed. And TH has voiced his dislike of and opposition to Trump on camera, so I wonder what those conversations are like between them, especially since they all end in "well, you can't vote in the November election anyway, so...."
>>431 If the pic was taken in April and Taylor took it......TINFOIL HOUSE ALERT. Possibly tinfoil over the entire state of California.
Of course the guy could be joking.
>>438 Tom was a Bernie fanboy, remember! And my guess is he is a natural Labour sympathiser (even if he may reluctantly vote with his wallet). He said something in an interview last autumn about how much integrity he thought Jeremy Corbyn had. JC is a lot more left wing than BS.
I can't imagine she will go to ComicCon.
But even if she doesn't he will surely get the piss taken mercilessly.
>>441 Once he gets out of her sight, and if the bodyguards aren't there? INTERVENTION! Placing bets on how many people will pull him aside at SDCC for A Talk. Maybe they'll fly in his father.
Magic 8 ball captcha says 'dourness'
the bodyguards >>> HER bodyguards, I meant.
R⚡️ “Team Taylor faces some heat ” by @mic
>>442 Ryan Reynolds married Blake Lively in an antebellum styled wedding on a former plantation in the south...so maybe not!
Bow down and worship the Kardashians' lawyer: no reasonable expectation of privacy because the call was on speaker: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3697173/Kim-Kardashian-WON-T-prosecuted-Taylor-Swift-recording-star-knew-phone-call-Kanye-overheard.html
>>447 Kaiser also makes a good point, if she didn't know he was recording her, why would her lawyers asked him to destroy all the materials months ago?
It seems to me that TS hasn't any ground for the phone call and the incriminated line, so I don't see any sensible lawyer telling her she can win. Then again, I don't think TS is mentally stable, she is a bully and like all bullies she only feels she won when she crushed her enemies. An honourable defeat is unknown to her.
>>448 He may have written through lawyers and told her to stop lying, explaining that he had recordings.
Apparently KW told People that there are more recordings, of her being told that the call was recorded and of her being told about the bitch line. Please let that be true! (It's not in the article that Kaiser links to).
And I kind of think it might be. KKW has surely not played every card she has yet. I bet she is waiting to see what new lie TS puts out before releasing more. She must be a great poker player.
>>450 This and THIS. I think TS thought - in an undoubtedly condescending fashion - that she had the PR and the lawyers to best KK and KW. She probably thought she'd come out smelling of roses and candy floss, as she had so many times before.
>>452 Yep. I hate myself for typing this and I am surely going to hell, but GO KIM!!! If she has a photo of TayTo getting it on at the Met Gala I will send her actual money.
But "even" a video of TS approving the bitch line would suffice.
I like the bile being spewed here...and the truth.
>>453 'Don't worry, Tay, we love you, we love you. I'm stroking your cheek with one hand...don't worry about what the other is doing, don't.you.worry!' Hahahahaha. Someone got played!
A pic of Tayto kissing at the Met Ball would be glorious. And much, much harder for her robotically fawning fans to explain away...and his.
PS even if KW told TS she was being recorded, people are very good about forgetting what they said, until it is played back to them. I have seen on many occasions transcripts of what I said in court (so many arrests over the years!) (only kidding) and it is an odd experience. Some of it you clearly recall saying and some not at all - and it is my job to remember stuff like that. Butbit happensa all the time - so many cases feature at least one absolutely key conversation that two apparently normal people with no agenda recall completely differently from one another.
James Corden may have to promise more leopards and penguins to get TH back on. The 'I don't know if she's dating someone' and 'she keeps her personal life private' bits will sting.
>>457 LOL but I doubt Corden would have to apologize, after all he did him the courtesy of not mentioning his name.
>>454 I know that most, if not all, highly successful business people get that way by being ruthless people. But wow, she really strikes me as a horrible, horrible person, who's been that way for a loooong time. Most successful people don't get to be this bad till they are aged at least 35.
>>459 She really is. I read some of that stuff yesterday and it made me realize that her fans must know it too, so the reason they adore her it's not because she is a nerdy, underdog (pfft her parents bought her a label company so she could début her yapping) turned into a swan, but because she is a bully who gets away with it by victimizing herself. How anyone could ever label her a symbol of feminism and a role model for young girls is beyond me.
Did someone already post these? Apologies if so. My brain has finally fuddled from a combination of heat and having to support KK.
>>460 Having observed her stans in the wild on Tumblr, I think they are mostly as emotionally and intellectually stunted as she is. And just chronologically young.
So, they are mostly too young to recall that the feminist movement has been criticised since the very start for failing to take account of non middle class, non white perspectives (or how you might address that and still be a feminist). Or to have read much actual feminist thought.
>>462 Bless your heart. I would have gone with: They STUPID. I wouldn't have even wasted a verb on them.
>>462 Hah. They don't even know what post-feminist means.
>>457 Corden has very little chill when it comes to big media events and I love him for it.
>>461 The bustle article better states what I was rambling about in >>430 plus Anon astutely pointing out in >>436 that TS is likely espousing Republican values.
For the record, just because I speak out against TS doesn't mean I like KW and KKW. I don't. I feel sorry for their children.
Why is he so extremely pretty in this photo and such a tit in real life?
Not sure if this one was posted but Cosmo
really let Taylor have it and didn't hold back. Of course Tom's name was pulled into it but they didn't attack him, instead it sounds like they're saying she used him too http://www.cosmopolitan.com/entertainment/celebs/news/a61508/taylor-swift-playing-the-victim/
The most recent DM article is just a stream of word vomit based on the IG pic with the two young fans I posted a day or so ago. I won't bother linking to it.
Interesting though is that they're not accepting comments on the article. I've only ever seen the DM do that with articles about current legal cases or issues.
>>468 I was just about to post this but then wondered if my computer was malfunctioning... so they do this for litigious cases only?
What has been noticeable since "Christmas in July' is the complete 180 turnaround in DM text. They went from complete shade to no shade. They've been bought.
We need some kind of tinfoil temple of refuge and prayer.
This combined with the wiping clean of snake and poo emojis and negative comments on IG says TS is attempting to wipe her slate clean
>>470 I just looked and there are plenty o' poos on her IG. Whoever's responsible for manually removing them - some miserable intern at her PR company - must be taking his 10 minute break.
The DM hasn't been completely kind. They posted about Piers Morgan appearance on morning tv, during which he suggested that they rename TS 'Pinocchio Swift.' But I'll be interested to see if comments are allowed on the next Tayto article and how they swing.
>>I assumed they'd clean up the poo while sweeping away the snakes. One emoji at a time I guess.. those poor interns.
Has Piers completely contradicted his arse- licking article defending TS in the height of TayTo? I had no idea. I've only seen this article and one other since news broke of the leaked tapes and both had the air of a daily Nazi bulletin. Blatant propaganda, made even more frightening by the removal of the comments section.
>>473 I doubt Tom would have more than a week to take off from filming so soon after arriving. It's easy to forget these days but he is actually working in Oz. Plus the hair in the IG photo was wrong.
>>468 >>470 I've taken out a small mortgage on my tinfoil cave to build a tinfoil chapel and meditation grotto in the backyard. Votive candles can be lit in prayer for one dollar each. Proceeds will go to the "Hire a Competent Damage Control PR Specialist for Tom Hiddleston" fund.
>>474 The Hemsworth has had this week off so it's not a reach that Tom has too. Actors are rarely needed on set 24/7, especially in an ensemble film like this where he has at most a bit part, he will have blocks off.
Also, I'm debunking the hair theory. Take another look at that fan photo from Sunday with the kids.
>>475 He does own other clothes, just never wears them. Who are we to know if he has an event in LA. I would have thought Tay Tay would want to flee back to the motherland the moment hell broke loose. Any supportive bf with time off would have flagged down the nearest stealth bomber.
>>476 Tom's shirt is even weirdly wrinkled in the same places as in the Variety photo shoot from April, and I do still think his hair is too short now, particularly on the sides. Tom's body positioning and the framing of the photo are consistent with when he takes selfies. The original poster's friends' comments were along the lines of "LMAO" which to me says the caption about Taylor was some kind of inside joke. But more importantly, nothing will convince me that Tom AND Taylor managed to get through 2-3 airports and commercial airline flights without a more legitimate sighting - not a paparazzi pic, not a fan photo of the both of them, not a tweet from someone on one of their flights.
>>477 I agree it's highly unlikely they Houdini'd. I'll give you the wrinkle receipts and the unlikelihood that he's changed his clothes for the first time in a month but I'm sticking by the hair- that's the one thing I'm good at. I watch follicles and faces like a hawk.
Plus I severely doubt he would have been able to even fake a smile yesterday, let alone allow a selfie in the company of the most mocked woman in the world.
>>479 Time to go on Twitter and follow the Emmys accounts. No time to tweet supportively of his GF. Way to go Tom. She must be furious.
>>479 Maybe Tom wears a hairpiece. I worked for a man once who had a very realistic hairpiece that sat kind of like Tom's hair does, now that I'm thinking about it. He still had his real hair on the sides of his head, but the top was very thinned out so he supplemented it with a piece. It was really high quality and blended well with what was left of his own hair, the only way you could tell it was fake was that the top of his hair always looked the same.
>>480 Has he really been on twitter? Pointing towards more of a dog eat dog relationship than true love.
>>841 This is something I've wondered but I don't think he's gone there yet. He wouldn't be able to jog and sweat profusely with a hairpiece. He's better off having implants and may have already started as it's a slow process.
>>482 Lol! I wonder if the artist is telling the truth about the last name being a mistake, or if they knew of Taylor's tendency to sue people who offend her and used the wrong last name on purpose.
Here's an interesting little tidbit off tumblr. TS follows cheers-mrhiddleston. Isn't that a thing. She isn't very active on tumblr these days, so I would bet that that follow happened a while back. Has TS had a crush on him for a while? It would also explain the Twitter follow from years back. When he came on the scene in May CH never stood a chance, I bet. That might explain the warp speed (from her perspective anyway). She is always extra and now she is extra with someone she has had an Internet boyfriend crush on.
>>485 Just looked at cheers-mrhiddleston's tumblr. Whether it was as a crush or as a potential business asset, it looks like Tom's had a target on his back for two years:
This is just weak. She could hear voices but she didn't know she was on speaker. Yeah, right. http://m.tmz.com/#article/2016/07/20/taylor-swift-kanye-west-famous-secret-tape/
>>487 I second the list. Her bf's are always the men of the moment and she no doubt had a tumblr curiosity about the size of Little Hiddles. Hopefully TS didn't look up the bicycle blogs list of his sexual preferences and is only offering anal.
>>488 Surely going legal would be the nail in her coffin but she is the queen of petty. She won't sit this out or hide for much longer.
>>488 sounds like she is fishing to find out how much more material they have.
>>480 Of course he's going to use his twitter account to follow Emmy accounts. That twitter acct is all business now.
Also he's not going to comment on his private life online...some things have to remain sacred. Duh!
3 mil followers
>>495 Bloody hell, where did they come from? Last I looked he had 1.9m.
Taylor must have spent a packet getting all the fake accounts that follow her to follow him. Still, they will only be temporary and when they split, the followers will all disappear.
A thought - he must be in his way to Comic Con now, surely? Where are the pap pics? Or has TayTay invested in a stealth bomber due to Media Intrusion?
>>496 It has been increasing at the same rate it was increasing before really, maybe slightly quicker but not much. How many are fake or how many are outlets that thought he used twitter I don't have the strength to investigate.
>>497 he is due on Saturday, he might leave later today (Oz time), using the cover of the night.
>>496 Before the Swift affair surfaced he had 2.71 mil followers. I'm sure.
>>500 Maybe - I had recalled it was 1.75 but I haven't been keeping track so much as of his follows.
>>500 You are correct - I looked almost immediately after the RI pics came out because I knew I'd be curious to see how his follower count changed because of it.
hahahaha, please make this happen!
>>503 TH's soul would collapse in on itself like an unstable black hole.
The crush of TS/TH anons has toppled thiddyastro (http://thiddyastro.tumblr.com/post/147666020029/i-started-this-blog-in-the-summer-of-2014-as-a)
>>505 I didn't believe what she was selling but I am sad she has gone. It was a bit of harmless fun. And she got death threats? Give me strength.
>>506 I was surprised to hear she's quitting for good. I hadn't read her blog in quite a while, only a couple of times since the bomb dropped mid-June. I was reading her blog when she predicted late last year that in 2016 he needed to watch his back. At the time people were expecting that to be due to something with EO. That sounds like child's play compared to what's going on now.
Apparently she has never taken legal action against any white supremacist organisation using her image.
Update on the mural (in response to several threatening letters from TS lawyers):
*double post, sorry M
Going back to JVR's tweets calling out the ad agency's plagiarism on her Apple ads, this article proves there was no ad agency involved, the concept originated from TS herself.
>>512 Thanks for this. On more than one occasion she's used someone else's intellectual or artistic property without giving credit. I think someone mentioned the fox drawing controversy somewhere upthread. And this from someone who protects her own name, image, lyrics, etc like a overly litigious pit bull. It the usual 'one rule for Tay, another for everyone else' policy that she maintains.
And can't JVR put his foot in it and then quickly find himself up to his stupid neck!
I think Anon once described him as having the intellect of a peanut. Yep. I hope he features prominently in the marketing - the cringe will be magnificent.
>>513 There is nothing whatsoever ambiguous about JM's tweet:
lmao kim let that tea brew for months to bring out the flavor for taylor to enjoy 💀
>>515 My money would be on JVR as he had his own Tayto problems and probably gave JM a heads up. And JM has retweeted one of JVR's tweets about not always watching Snapchat. HA!
This panel will either be boring because eveyone is going to be walking on eggshells and on their best behavior or it's going to be a disasterous mix of embarrassment and comedy.
>>512 so I'm wearing my tinfoil bikini (it's too bloody hot for anything else) and say that if the idea came from TS I bet she saw that RT from TH about JVR's friend I posted upthread and made something similar on purpose.
Given all the backtracking I'd say TS is going to be at SDCC. Apparently nobody wants to spend money on lawyers because their castmate's gf is suing. Which means they are all going to be pissed off at TH for forcing them to be hypocrites.
she won't be able to press charges now, unless she admits to look like a gorilla.
>>516 The few times I've watched Conan since he went over to TBS, he has less chill than ever. He doesn't know when to/like to stop when he's irritated. This could end badly. And sadly, I don't even think I care as much as I might have last week.
>>518 But that's just cray cray. I can fathom TS accompanying him to LA simply because she needs a show of support pap stroll but actually turning up to SDCC! That makes no sense at all. Do any so's ever go? It's a work conference ffs. She would be such an unwelcome distraction. Unless he is using her for the films' promotion
She would deflect the narrative away from Shit Island onto her.
>>521 I know it's crazy, and most unlikely to happen, but bullies don't ever admit they are wrong, spoiled brat entitled bullies even less. I know it'd be absurd but I can imagine her thinking "I have to show I will not be cowered into a corner" and if she is there people will be afraid to make jokes in her presence.
TH doesn't have the balls to tell her no, he gave up wearing his eyeglasses when he is with her in public for image purposes!
So JVR has not only backtracked but he has tweeted saying that it is the talent that determines the content of pop videos; and that KW has stolen stuff from other artists; and that people should pay attention to things other than snapchat; and entered into dialogue with other users saying no he wasn't dragging TS, how very dare they (yes, I said he had the intellectual and emotional maturity of a peanut).
>>523 what a piece of cowardly hypocritical peanut!
But I'm not surprised, he is preparing the ground in case he gets asked about her.
What a hot mess.
>>523 I noticed an anon who I think was her on tumblr last week, somewhere that I didn't bookmark. I recognized her speech pattern. She said TH needed a wholesome girl.
>>523 >>524 Mexican wave to Firenbrenie!
In terms of acknowledging content theft though, that investigative journalism is not my own, credit goes to a tumblrite I chanced upon so kudos to them.
That peanut JVR needs to reel it in. Exactly how many music videos/ TVCs has he directed? I've worked on at least 200 TVCs and 50 music videos so beat that you imbecile.
My personal theory is that both JVR and JM are basically stupid. So they tweeted these things without thinking. And then 24 hours later (or less for VR because people told him straight away!) they thought "oh shit, yeah, I am seeing TH later this week...."
>>525 There are no wholesome girls in the entertainment industry. I've even met Christian band campers who were messy drunk slappers.
If TS doesn't do drugs as she declares she's as wholesome as they get.
Some of her squad members/ ex bfs have collectively snorted Mt Everest so it seems likely this is just another aspect of her image control.
>>527 They both appear to have been hit with the stupid stick. I could see this being their inner narrative.
TS matches TH in terms of calculating, but smart? She ain't dumb, but she's not the sharpest tool in the shed. The sharp pretty tools don't seem to want to date TH though, so this may be his best bet.
It's just been announced TH will do Nerd HQ and signing!
He's game... what's the bet TS has enlisted him into making a supportive statement something along the lines of her squad
>>531 All we've gotten out of Tom is the same statement twice, in print - not even live. If he didn't talk with Josh Horowitz about it when things were good, I don't think he's going to talk about it with Zachary Levi now that things have turned bad in Swiftland. I predict there will be an embargo on Taytay discussion.
>>531 I'm so happy, it's a bit late as announcement.
>>532 Questions are not screened at Nerd HQ, but I suppose Levi could tell the audience to not ask.
>>529 I kind of meant smart as in low cunning. I think TH tries to see the chess board 10 moves ahead. He still gets it wrong because he totally lacks that sense that say Kim Kardashian has for how things will play out from a PR perspective. But he tries, and so does TS (with much more success than him until recently).
>>532 I agree anonsy, I don't think he will want to comment in an uncontrolled situation and still less now there is a lot to comment about.
I am not sure that Zachary Levi would allow it either. He seems a good guy and tough enough to shut down any heckling.
>>533 If he plays this well as he has done in the past he will win back a lot of his fans, it's a very smart move now I think about it, albeit a bit desperate.
>>535 KK is in another league as a player. I can't believe she let that tea brew so long, sitting on it while watching her pray slowly dig her grave.
TH must be having a panic session at the beauty salon right now:
'Give me all the needles, treatments and all the spare hairz you have.'
>>538 Hahaha! I look forward to your analysis of what he has had done before SDCC.
>>538 Preview of Tom's Comic Con look:
>>540 Oh that's perfect!
Will he rehabilitate himself by nerd hq, I wonder? My suspicion is not if he brings her with him to CC, or even if he brings her to San Diego.
JVR did reply to Firenbrenie!!
>>543 HAHAHAHAHA!!! Oh my God.
At least he had the decency to (sort of) acknowledge he was wrong.
>>540 hahaha oh yes, he will bring his A game, tight shirt, blue colour, smiles, self-deprecating attitude, puppy eyes and "I'm a poor victim face".
>>547 You forgot to add, "and his panties in a bunch."
>>543 LOL is that all he's got? Welp...shit?
I would love it if he had a man to man with TH but it's not really his issue, it's his so's and they have work to do.
Hopefully TS lets him off the leach so he can get mercilessly drunk with old mates and cry.
>>544 I doubt anyone on this board will be swayed but there's a lot of fairweather friends in the fandom who can be won back with a charming smile, tight clothes and smooth talking: >>547
>>550 speaking of "smart as a box of rocks."
TH spent every waking moment with this guy until he discovered TS. Maybe we should have seen the signs that he was as shallow as a paddling pool.
>>550 In a way, what else can JVR say? He has a beef with TS, then he remembered that maybe it wasn't such a good idea to voice that publicly, then someone gave him the receipts. He may already know she will be joining them in SD, and he definitely knows he'll see TH, but he still can't say, "I revert to my original view that she is a thriving conniving bitch." She would knife him.
>>551 Really the signs have been everywhere. He hasn't exactly sought the company of Rhodes scholars. We were all falsely lulled by his wordy wordsmith interviews when in fact he hangs with bro's and says 'yo'
>>554 I will never forgive him for Selena Gomez dad dancing. NEVAH
>>550 once I would have wondered if it meant that TH was also in LA, now I only want to know the brand of Olly's tshirt.
>>547 Yep, he will do this exactly. I'm going to remain strong and just stick a picture of him in the TS vest to my screen to ward off any relapse.
>>558 Yes, that's why it felt familiar! Thank you :)
The Daily Beast took my idea and ran with it. She supports Trump, guys.
>>560 !!!!!!!!! Honestly I think it's already over and he's just riding it out until an appropriate breakup time.
Is that firenbrenie our Lex? I looked at the acct and there isn't a 'blonde whore' comment in the bunch. A lot of anti-TS retweets and tweets but not any hate like EO got. There's also no cuckoo declarations of love for TH which I think people mentioned being on her original twitter. If it's our Lex, she's being medicated now.
>>560 I think the problem here is that both Kushner brothers are rather liberal - or as liberal as two good, Jewish boys from the UES can be. The Observer - the paper Jared owns - is fairly moderate to liberal in its reporting and op-ed pieces as well. Yes, one has had to 180 because he married Trump's daughter, but I think the one dating K Kloss is still the very definition of a champagne liberal.
I thought it was TS people deleting the snake emoji from her account, instead it's instagram, going as far as banning people.
>>561 Contract, PRmance, showmance, real - whatever it is, I don't think it's ovah. I feel that the wearing of the t-shirt and the allowing her to go/taking her to Oz was TH digging his trench. Sure, the shelling is pretty fierce at the moment - I mean Ardennes forest fierce - but I don't see him as the sort to give up now. Remember: he trotted his mother out to give this relationship legitimacy. That's too big an investment to end it after a month.
>>565 I think that article is just reiterating what we have spoken about here- that TS most likely paid for preferential treatment on IG to have the emojis removed. It is not standard practise.
I noticed some fans complaining that they couldn't upload any photos on the #tomhiddleston page and just checked. The newest photo is 12hrs old. Same with #taylorswift.
I genuinely don't know what will happen in Hall H or at NerdHQ, but neither does TH. And that's where my schadenfreude comes in. Sure Luke will have given him some best case scenarios. He may have even given him some worst case ones. And Luke may have placed very strict 'don't mention the TS' restrictions on both of those events. But at the end of the day, TH can't account for the actions of unknown human beings or every human being...and that must be killing him.
>>563 "Together and happy" isn't exactly deep, though. I think his lone pathetic statement about the relationship was another sad attempt to discredit the media's stance that Hiddleswift is a big sham. It doesn't seem to have worked though, especially now that the Kanye footage has been released and the timing of the RI pics coincides with Kim's initial interview about having the video. It's all very suspect.
>>567 Whoa. I do NOT like this. Frankly, this is more shameful than the damn shirt.
I've seen it mentioned that sometimes her page is "locked" because porn IGs are spamming it - and you know, THE CHILDREN, we have to think of the children! If this is the case, they block the page and put up a notice saying that something strange is happening and all will be back to normal soon. But has TH's page ever been locked? Is this Turkey? China? Social media is meant to be about a democratic sharing of images, thoughts, ideas. This is Sha-dee.
>>569 Me neither, but first time in 5 years he admits he's dating, that's deep for him.
I'd go with PR because I've never bought the sex part, mainly because before this started I think TH might, in small measure, have snapped his fingers and picked his favourite. I agree that the whole thing might end way before it becomes official, unless we are once again misjudging him.
>>570 It's one thing to lock down Swifts IG since she has been bullied but it makes no sense at all to lock down TH's. Is this a deliberate ploy to shut down social media prior to SDCC? Less photo leaks... more control of the narrative.
>>570 I just checked for myself and it is locked down when viewed via the UK as well. That page normally updates super frequently, like every 30 seconds, with all manner of spam that people tag him in.
Well, well. I was also super pissed off to see that not only were snake emojis removed, so were the posters' accounts. It's like social media for communist China.
This gets worse every day, like really Hiddleston? You went along with a lock down on instagram? He must be very afraid.
Anyway, there are others social networks, they can't lock them all, and people will know if they do.
Instagram hashtagging is currently broken - no tagging has worked for approximately 11-12 hours.
#taylorswift is also on lockdown. Same as TH's, the last upload for her was 13 hours ago.
Mission Flee Oz must be underway. Such a contrast to their fanfare filled LAX departure and Oz arrival. But I can't figure out if it's because the two left together or left on separate flights going to different destinations. If they left together, I figure they'd wanna be seen. If they've broken up, then they'd want to keep everything quiet until they're ready to release the statement.
>>576 Ahh, okay...unless she broke it!!!! ;) Nah, it was probably Chinese hackers. It's always Chinese hackers...or 14-year-old boys in their bedrooms.
>>576 thank you, because I'm all for tinfoil even with this heat, but it sounded so absurd.
>>576 You're right. Damn well there goes that theory that they're controlling their hashtag.
Pity about our hash tagging theory!
However NewAnon is right that TayTo would surely wish to be seen boarding the love plane back home, so we plebs can imagine them canoodling and drinking Dom Perignon in first class and know that TH lurves her still.
Just thought as I typed this. If Olly is in LA he is presumably returning to Oz with TH after ComicCon.
Does this indicate that TH will be reverting back to the previous MO of renting a house and living with Olly in it? I can't think TH would need Olly when he's got all TS's people to help him, or want Olly there while he is hanging with her (always assuming no trouble in paradise, ha ha). Also, the old suite must be getting a bit crowded.
>>582 Makes sense. It would be weird for Olly to fly all the way to L.A. for 24 hours at Comic Con.
As far as TS is concerned, I'm going to bet on her flying back to the U.S. with Tom in some sort of ridiculously papped manner, complete with sad "Kim and Kanye are mean" faces, but then Tom goes to Comic Con alone. You know, for the "work." I can't decide if I think she's going to do some solo papping in San Diego or if she's going to disappear to one of her residences on her private jet after dropping Tom off.
I'm gonna risk getting jinxed and put it out there. I think they're over. I think Tom bailed a day after the tape released. That's why no pics, no new leaks, no airport fanfare. That's why Olly is back on scene to go back with Tom since Taylor won't be going back with him. I don't know what they'll say in the breakup statement but I think they'll keep quiet until then and lay low, letting ppl think they're still together. Tom's work schedule is providing the perfect excuse and cover right now.
Is Olly gay?
NewAnon, it would explain the lack of pap stroll (why not now when she actually needs some good publicity?). I could well believe that she has been a holy terror this past few days. He probably believed her version of events to a degree (young love) but I expect his sympathy wore thin when he saw that she was a vindictive monomaniacal control freak as well as a spoiled little princess. I bet she has been hiding out in that suite obsessively reading Twitter and the gossip mags, screaming down the phone to her lawyer, and waiting for him to get back from set so she can rage over 4000 hate tweets from famous people.
Remember guys that Olly drove all the way to wherever it was, juts bring him his jaguar so he could show it off for TS. And that Luke flew all the way to RI for the 4th of July party.
It's not over until TayTay sings.
>>587 Is he? I knew Luke was. Does TH have any straight male guys he spends time with (Cumby doesn't count as he barely sees him)?
Runs to anonsy's tinfoil shrine and begs to be admitted.
>>589 Oh! I remember him having a profile photo on twitter once where he was snogging some guy. Do you remember it anonsy?
>>592 Unfortunately I think that's the sort of thing Olly might regard as a "joke."
>>593,594 hahaha could be. But I'm now wondering if maybe the boy was in fact a girl.
interesting comment on May 20
Truth is Tom, Olly, and Luke are an on and off poly couple. Tom and Olly are bi but Luke is gay. Tom is the one with the crazy gfs and Olly is the wild one while Luke tries to keep his sanity in the midst of it all. The sitcom premieres on ABC in the fall.
>>596 He changed that caption recently. It wasn't there before. They're taking potshots at Tom and this whole Taylor thing now.
>>597 I don't think any brunette, blonde, red, brown is allowed to hug TH as long as TS is around. That being said, no I don't have any other piece of evidence except for the bracelet, the height doesn't seems convincing enough to debunk it, and it did look like the hug he usually gives to people he knows.
>>598 So, I'm not the only one who thinks Olly's friend is doing that, there was anther one recently, a photo of TH and the caption said something like "remember when you were too drunk and we had to call a taxi" and then he added @ TS
>>599 Maybe that's why Taylor made Ruby's gf delete the video lol There can be no evidence of Tom with another woman! Because he only has eyes for Taylor and if she's not there he has no aim in life and doesn't know what to do. That Polaroid seems to have disappeared too. At least the close up of it. Good ol' Taylor. Never change. I expect her to be pushing 40 and still be exactly the same and churning out high school nostalgia songs.
To the girl who keeps me grounded and loves me for me -- happy birthday, @ollyauld42. Here is a photo taken 20 minutes after we met.
>>602 Nice, at least JVR's assistant has some guts.
>>602 and didn't delete them! Unlike Jason M. Jordan's assistant is on a mission to squeeze in as many Swift jabs as possible before the breakup lol
JVR benign asked if he will now delete the tweet accusing KW of plagiarism. Someone tweeted a link to this I thought very depressing story about an artist being deprived of the right to her work: http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_566f2cd9e4b0fccee16f75ff
I'm going to get my prediction in: I think TH flies in solo and she stays hunkered down in Oz. He then returns to her and radar silence resumes. I'd like to be wrong, but I think one of the reasons she went in the first place was to be somewhere far, far away from the fan when Kim threw a bucket full of shit at it. The 'search' feature on the Notes post she made tells us that she knew this was coming. Oz is as good a place to stay out of the limelight while her team conjures up a strategy and puts it into action.
>>606 This is the fox story I mentioned earlier. It makes me wish - even in my 'delicate condition' - for 30 seconds (that's all I'd need) in a dark alley with TS. 30 seconds, universe, that's all I'd need.
>>609 Oh I missed that mention! The more I have googled the more I have found to really dislike. This really isn't a bunch of bitches looking for any excuse to diss the GF. This is actually, I am shocked what a horrible person she seems to be.
>>610 So he's been connected to KUWTK and he's been mentioned on TOWIE. Great. Something to put in the scrapbook.
>>611 I did call her a piece of beige cardboard. And I still stand by that, she is very beigey and cardboardy. But that was only in comparison to his one, true soulmate (sign of the cross) Ave Jarthy. When compared to the blessed Jane, all other women are but shadows on the wall of the cave.
>>611 True and with the exception of the media use, we were making fun, not criticizing. I think the worst thing I wrote about EO was asking if she had a nose job.
TS is just a terrible person and the fact that there is so much and it is so easy to find, makes it harder to still have a good opinion of TH.
Apparently Tom made it into L.A. without being spotted?
>>615 Wait, I'm wrong, this looks to be taking place in NYC, not Los Angeles. Still, no paps.
Could the show be 'live' streaming but TH's segment be pre-taped. He's talked to this guy a few times.
>>617 That seems more likely than Tom and maybe TS making it to the U.S. without being seen.
>>560 Not sure about the rest of you but my FB news feed is lumping today's Donald Trump articles with Taylor's various troubles. If that isn't a loud enough warning bell for her fans and for Tom then I don't know what is.
If he has made it to the US without being spotted I am logging straight into tumblr and you will all know who I am because I will SLASH AND BURN.
>>620 LOL! I kind of hope he has just so I can witness this.
>>622 I love the longer version of this gif where it starts with its his face as he holds the pizza box!
According to the Behind the Velvet Rope Facebook page, there was some kind of "technical difficulty" and they will be broadcasting the show after they sort out their issues.
Crisis! Mr Anon borrowed my laptop and he has been reading the board!!!
>>626 Shit. #LaptopExposedAnonParty!! Does he know which one you are?
>>627 It doesn't matter...we're all crazy 'bitches.'
If you didn't want to be called a 'bitch' please remove yourself from my narrative. I know you didn't ask to be a part of it. #characterassassination
There goes TH's enjoyment of tennis: 'Does this one like me, Tom? What has this one said about me, Tom?'
>>627 I don't think there was anything on the current page identifying me. Well, there is now (scuttles to erase history on laptop and locks iPad in sock drawer).
Mr Anon seemed strangely up with the Kimye saga. I said laughingly was it on the front page of the Telegraph. No, he said, I have been reading one of those board things. Oh, I said, did you find a link via the BBC. Oh no, quoth he, it was on your laptop. Pause. There are some odd people out there.
Could this be TH's out? Our out? It is a blind, so pass the salt, please.
>>631 CDAN has been reading this board. I think you said those very words.
Hi Mr. Anon! Hi Mr. CDAN! Hi hi! Please help yourselves to as much tinfoil as you need.
>>630 Why does your sock drawer have a lock? NSFW http://65.media.tumblr.com/69a28d21cd5a26748a37fd5aefff0b35/tumblr_ms5dqcRP2p1r0ldy1o1_500.png
Bless Mr. Anon's little heart. Hilariously, this board has become more TS/Kimye than TH. The story of his life now.
>>633 Mr Anon is NEVAH reading this board again if I can prevent it. Imagine if he had come upon it in the peaceful days when we spent hours discussing the willy gifs from High Rise. No man wants to know that his wife spent an hour squinting at a gif of another man's penis trying to see if he is circumcised.
>>634 Its's where I keep my vibrator collection!
Edit - just clicked on your link - hahahaha!
Scarily there actually is one! For gents. Is this how Tom reaches those spots that Taylor won't explore?
I think TS is coming back the US, not hiding out. Whether she's with him is anyone's guess, she sure has the money to hire a long flight private jet if she really wants to dodge everything and everyone, land at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank to avoid LAX, and run to her home in BH or Malibu (not exactly sure where; I've heard both mentioned so maybe she has two) rather than follow him to SD. I haven't expect her to stay past this point unless there was a specific work reason. It was partially due to the throwaway line - last sentence of this article when she visited the children's hospital : http://www.goldcoastbulletin.com.au/entertainment/taylor-swift-leaves-gold-coast-penthouse-to-visit-sick-kids-in-brisbane-hospital/news-story/4aed7f4ecdec28a2c86b20ce3a39151a and partially because she's coming up on an album release, tour and, sooner, her BFF Karlie's birthday on August 5 which she would never miss according to Swifties and the beard conspiracists. Olly's arrival in LA seems to point to this scenario.
>>638 Yes that might be right.
I'll be interested to see if she decides to stay in Oz. I feel like this is a tricky moment for them to have a 2 month separation. Would you want to leave his side just at the moment when he might have dimly started to realise that you are a fruitbat?
>>639 "...when he might have dimly started to realise that you are a fruitbat?" You made me laugh so hard I snorted.
Behind the Velvet Rope stream is airing now. No Tom yet, but they are cutting to previously recorded interviews with other celebs so Tom's will likely be previously recorded as well.
>>639 If you want to cut your losses, you find an excuse to get out of the same city and call in a business associate from the UK that must be at your side from here on out for various reasons, making things too crowded and busy for intimacy to be nurtured further, and let the separation help things fade away.
Or, you allow Little Hiddles to talk you into 'needing a break' and make plans to have said associate consult with BFF to pick a ring to present to her before the Emmys so you invite the press to turn the Red Carpet into your own personal engagement announcement. And ruin your career.
>>642 Tom's segment is on, previously recorded at Tribeca Film Festival. Talking about TNM.
>>644 ANOTHER COFFEE SPEW!!! Taking guess on what initials she had it monogramed with. TH? MB?
presumably TS. She's already fucked his career in the arse, so why not him too?
That's why I was thinking MB for My Bitch.
>>649 Hehe. I wondered what that stood for. As she stuffs it up his bum, does he say "I wish to be excluded from this narrative" ??
God...you don't think she's his Dominatrix, like Wendy and Chuck Rhodes (Maggie Siff and Paul Giamatti) in Showtime's show "Billions" (the show with Damian Lewis).
'Cause I do.
If you people keep this up I'm going to need ten gallons of brain bleach. Or regular bleach.
>>646 I caught that the interviewer waited until the other guy came on to say 'Hiddleswift'
>>651 I cannot in a million years imagine her as a Dom. She exudes sexlessness. I also think he would want to feel he was in control. I imagine they have a lot of missionary position sex that takes less time than Charlie's condom commercial.
Speaking of which, here's what TH actually uses while in bed with Taylor: http://metro.co.uk/2015/06/05/big-brothers-marc-oneill-appears-to-want-to-oven-bake-his-willy-5231644/
>>655 My take on him was that when he's on a film he stays in control all day and needs to release that when he's by himself, and she's the ultimate control freak and wants to maintain that in the bedroom where she's absolutely sure she has it. But then, that's been my only experience. I DO see your POV for the same reasons, that it's the only place he can be in control and maybe she thinks he's the right guy, The One to melt her uptightness away.
>>658 Snorts Sorry anonsy I'll dial back on the kink talk.
"They have gotten very close. She is enjoying the time off from working. She has been writing during her travels, and Tom has been an inspiration in her music."
>>662 so no court proceedings then: "our source tells us that she has no intentions of partnering with him again. "She is not a fan of Kanye and won't ever work with him or talk to him again at this point," the source says."
>>662 "Always Laughing" mmmkay, if you say so Eonline. Captcha - pawn.
>>666 Comfort yourself with the thought that never in a million billion years would the princess of pop even say the a-word, let alone go anywhere near Tom's. Nor I suspect would he let her. He is a bit prim, I think!
From the eonline article: "Tom is not annoyed by the negative media attached to Taylor,” the insider tells us. “He knew that would come with the course of dating her. He has been supporting her and enjoying the time he’s having with her. They’re having a great time and are always laughing.” So she thinks her legal woes (don't forget the deposition on top of the Kanye situation) and Tom being trashed in the press are funny?
Her narratives are always so high school. I think she peaked in sophomore year and has been stuck at 15 since her homeschooling started. Any adult reading that E! article is rolling their eyes at the sheer ridiculousness of it all but her fanbase is probably making fanart going "omg she's so sweet and kind and she finally found someone who'll take care of little lovely heart"'
Great article by a rock journalist who was courted by Swift for the sole purpose of good reviews then unceremoniously dropped when she didn't give one.
The mural has changed again!
Much better this time, I might have to take a look later today
According to Swifties on Twatter:
'Taylor and tom left on a private jet Lat night out of Oz to Hawaii for a fuel stop then to LA @taylorswift13 #taylorswift #tomhiddleston'
>>672 How do they knooooooow? Creepy.
So we now need to see if she shows at CC and if she returns with him. I really thought she'd stay out of sight, out of mind down in Oz.
>>672 If this is true, they've rented a plane. Her personal jet has not movied since the 17th, and her backup jet hasn't moved since May.
If she turns up to the CC I suggest she goes as a Clingon
>>673 I'm positive someone from her team feeds her fans info. Plane tracking sure. But how are they tracking them from Oz? And knowing when they left and the stops? Media control she says and the light glints off her tinfoil crown
*klingon (failed Trekky here)
>>676 I hope for her sake she regroups with #teamswiftdamagecontrol rather than an inane and further damaging pap walk. She is obviously being advised to stay in her lady cave so hopefully that is where she will remain until she evolves into a Taymentor and sucks the life force out of the Kardashians and all who scorned her. Mwahahaha
>>677 Ah yes, stealth mode. You're right, if they're being all secretive about the flying then she's probably not going to show at Comic Con. That'd be nice.
The Twatter says she received this info from her friend who works at the airport,
>>674 Maybe Legendary ponied up for a private jet to bring their stars into CC (Taylor put her thumb out and bummed a ride!). Might have to do with flight schedules and filming for Thor.
>>676 Maybe. But her fans are properly, fucking SCARY with info about her. They probably know when she's ovulating. Christ.
>>682 We should do a drinking game!
1 shot for nervous laughter
1 shot for a "no comment" answer
2 shots for touching/rubbing his hair, neck or thighs
>>683 Due to time difference and the fact I'll be attending a wild party, I'll be having pre- emptive shots and will most likely be allergic to the smell of alcohol come SDCC.
I would also add to that list his latest obsessive tick which is touching his lips. Just 1/2 shot or you'll have to be hospitalised.
I stick with my prediction, they are going to be together at SDCC. Olly is in LA so they probably all going to SD together.
TH can't allow himself to be alone because he has just said how happy they are but then they haven't been seen together for a while. IF they are not together at SDCC he will be asked if there are troubles, if after it was fake and what he thinks of the snapchats videos.
>>670 great article indeed. I detest her a little bit more every day.
>>686 this is my feeling too. She's already proved to be a full scale clinger so she'll be in SD. I think she will want to present a united front to the world like she's not troubled by everything that has happened, TH gets to play the white knight, protective boyfriend, true gent role.
>>689 I totally agree it would do far more damage to both, but I still think she'll be seen to be with him in SD, maybe not at CC but somewhere somehow. They seem beyond caring at this point (although I doubt that is far, far from true). I think they might play the 'we're so in perfect, perfect love' card that they want to look like they don't care what anyone thinks apart from the other one.
>>690 I desperately hope she stays far far away and lets him get on with his WERK.
Her presence can be subtly acknowledged by flanking TH with her 16 burly bodyguards.
>>694 Blue quilted jacket! Gray shoes! That's four shots, everyone.
Hey Anon, I hope we get that tumblr slash-and-burn we were promised.
>>694 Anyone else find it interesting that his face is completely obscured in all the photos?
(Also, note that the photos are once again from Taylor's favorite paparazzi agency The Image Direct.)
Try to loosen your grips on your bags guys
>>697 Yeah I noticed that. His face is blocked off and hers is shown in full grinning glory. I don't think she can help herself. It's interesting they sat on the pics until after E! came out saying Tom is making her laugh and they don't care about the Kimye mess and the second one that came out a few hours later saying how Taylor will bounce back from it all. They prepped it all before releasing the pics.
>>699 They're in it for the long haul it seems. Not just Emmy's but all the way into 2017 with Skull Island and Thor 3. We should ready ourselves for an engagement and the whole shebang.
I really don't think she believes in a thing such as overexposure. There's going to be a lot of pap strolls now. Back to our regularly scheduled programming!
>>702 I just read on tumblr that her jet is on the move. So the chances are, she too will be in San Diego.
>>696 - I had told myself I would go nuclear if there were no exit or entry photos and they just magically appeared at SDCC. Unfortunately a fakely fuzzy pap photo at the airport released the day after it was taken is not quiiiite enough to make the Hiddleswift stans accept that this is all staged (for reasons that escape me).
She must be paying him a lot of money. Or he's a gold digger and will marry her for her money. I'm sure he's enjoying the high life with the private jets, the bodyguards and vip treatment everywhere they go.
Boooooooring. I hope there are more pics of them enjoying a picnic in a 'secluded spot' to which all the paps have access. Or some more awkward closed mouth kissing shots.
Come on, how are we ever meant to forget that she's a manipulative liar? And remember that this is the greatest love story of our generation?
>>704 I would think that is the thing that would kill a genuine relationship. People have been hooting about them joining the mile high club and making out on her private jet and enjoying long romantic meals together. WHAT? Those three bodyguards are in that plane with them, and it's not like Air Force One, there isn't a separate bedroom for sleeping. Those guards are at tables next to them at dinner. Just everywhere. Imagine every conversation you have being listened in on, imagine kissing your gf in front of three burly men with earpieces...that's a scene from a porn movie, not a scene from a joyful and deep romance.
>>703 Man, or man!! Are they seriously going to walk the CC floor holding hands? Is this really going to happen? Or is she just going to get papped at the parties and after events. I think there will be events afterwards that she may want to get in on.
>>707 I am praying to Mary, Baby Jesus and the Blessed JArthy that they won't go to CC together.
She could be coming back to the States to work on her latest saccharine puff adder of an album. And she could have summoned her plane to take her back to Nashville.
>>707 She likes to play the underdog and what's a bigger celebration of underdogs than Comic Con?
I want to see her at the industry parties and posing with the cast of Skull Island. Specifically Jordan. Partying with Tom and Jordan and Jason Mitchell, and posing for selfies and photo ops. That'll be glorious. Not only does she have any integrity, she has a way of making people forget their own.
"The pair emerged in California after flying in from Australia via Hawaii via private jet"
The same words used by the source you guys posted, this source was very busy.
(the reply button has a life of its own)
she will be at SDCC. I'm afraid we have to stop parsing TH behaviour the way we did before, because he is not that person. He went and is going along with all of this because he is ok with it. He is ok with someone like TS.
>>715 I'm way ahead of you on the drink front. I agree too that looking at current TH through old TH glasses just isn't going to cut it. He is a different person now.
I was at Starbucks drowning my sorrow in an iced macchiato (delish!) and tried to post that I'd join the prayer circle but I typoed the captcha and then it was my turn in the drive-thru.
It appears you all are fast and effective. I check this tinfoil hat tumblr taytaysbeard every day for anything interesting, and they believe TS has already left LA for NYC, so if true they are officially apart for the first time in like 3 weeks. The LA pics from DM were taken yesterday and released this morning.
>>716 He probably was always this person but was selling a very different persona pre-TS: earnest, honest, not interested by the trappings of fame or Hollywood, rich in integrity and intellect. And he may actually possess or still possess those qualities but they have been superseded by less likeable qualities. (Sigh)
>>719 Coded racism I'm afraid is not something that goes along well with integrity, nor does admitting to be very happy with a lying, manipulative mean person. He was always this person, he just developed the rest to hide it.
>>720 I'm with Couch on this one. I can't wait to see how this weekend plays out whether or not she is still with him in California.
For Anon and Mr. Anon if he finds the iPad in the sock drawer while looking for...socks, yeah, socks.
The latest photos of him getting out of her big SUV in his gym kit clutching a Starbucks are sad, when I think about him freely (ish) running the streets here around N London. I think those days are long gone for him.
>>722 This is as bad as Bennifer, and I wasn't even looking at social media back then.
My favorite part of dlisted articles are the names the commenters call themselves.
>>723 I just saw those, and I was surprised to see them still in L.A. as TS's jet made an hour-long flight this morning at about 7:30 and I assumed it was going to San Diego. Although I suppose if those photos were taken at the crack of dawn (or yesterday, despite what Just Jared and others are saying) then it's still possible.
>>725 Totally the same. Part of me just wants to switch off completely because he's acting like such a twat and the other part of me wants to clip him around the ear and take him down the pub for a good talking to over a pint.
>>726 I did have a bit of a giggle that they didn't go to the gym together.
"No! You can meet my family, you can come to Oz, but you can NOT come with me to the gym. Please Miss Swift, I promise I won't talk to any girls!"
>>727 What? They're both at the gym, but separately?
>>720 You're right. If he really was the person he made us think he was, it'd be very difficult for him to be with someone like Taylor. Yet here we are. To fake at such a level, it shows some serious deceit.
>>725 I go from exasperation to disgust to annoyed. I don't feel any pity for him. The racism just threw away the little pity I felt. That really killed it. Even if these two were to breakup tomm, his credibility is shot in my eyes. I wouldn't believe a word he says. Which sucks because I really believed in his passion for his charity work. Now I'm wondering how much of that genuine and how much of that is because it makes his image look good.
>>730 So, no nyc for TS. And she's wearing a smirk as usual. ah well, i'll go back to not trusting info until there are pics.
>>731 Unless the pics of her are from yesterday and she asked her buddies at Just Jared to say they were from today.
A couple of articles say he's finished his filming - implying completely done - for his role. If so, i see no end in sight to the pap strolls. Does anyone know? Someone somewhere posted a supposed public calendar" for him that showed filming through the end of October. Do we know what the truth is?
>>733 I saw articles that said he was going back after Comic Con too. My guess is that nobody knows and people are just making assumptions. The articles I've seen that thought he was done filming didn't mention Comic Con at all, so they may have just drawn the conclusion that if he was in the U.S. that meant he was done, not realizing he had a commitment this weekend.
>>734 Exactly - I forgot that at the end of the last movie, he was masquerading as Odin, so some of Loki's lines will be acted by Sir Anthony. But Tom (as actual Loki) will have to confront Cate's character and others later in the movie.
>>734 Le sigh. I am guessing she will be at CC and then back to Oz with him.
I find it hard to imagine 2 weeks of filming is his lot. That is barely a cameo. I do not think that Marvel would allow such a short performance. After all, Thor 2 was not a huge success barring his performance.
And yes, I guess he is as shallow as a puddle IRL. Insofar as we get to see RL at all, which has been cunningly packaged to us all as RL, but turns out to have been a fake.
The main part of my - what? disappointment? disillusionment? - is not that he owes us anything, or that he has to be a clever, principled, earnest, honest person. I like plenty of celebs who are nothing of the kind (ahem, Chis Evans, who is hot but strikes me as shallow), or about whom I really know very little one way or the other (Kenneth Branagh - very good at giving nothing away in interviews). It's that TH worked so hard to sell us a particular person, when the people he chooses to associate with, and the actions of he last fee months, suggests he is nothing of the kind. I feel like I have bought a pig in a poke.
The thing that's been crawling up from the back of my mind are all the little rumors that have bubbled up over the past few years about him from people who dealt with him one-on-one pointing to shallowness that were dismissed because he has plenty of public, well-known supporters - all of whom would have been the recipient of his happy puppy face because they were involved in The Werk. Not talking about the big stories from thebyke but random things that showed up on Datalounge, ONTD, that came from one-off encounters. It's likely they could all be embellished for their intended audiences, but the seeds of those were planted by something either said or done in front of people he was around. I blew them off as 'no one's perfect' because they were not on the racist apologist / straight up liar level of his current 'gf' so I don't have bookmarks. But none of them seemed to point towards him being so shallow as to become a problematic fav. I feel like this is the last weekend I'm going to pay attention to him, and if there's no break from her after, I'm breaking up with my internet bf.
>>738 What kind of rumors about shallowness? Share share! You can paraphrase.
>>730 So if I'm reading this correctly, they're saying they both went to the same gym at the same time but separately? It says she went Fri morning and then he went that morning too lol what? Did the interns mess up on the article? Or did they go to different gyms?
>>740 Different gyms but probably because they were doing different types of workouts. But that doesn't mean they didn't want to get the hell away from each other!! I'm sure they could have worked out in her home gym (holding hands while on the elliptical machines) but they both probably needed some 'me' time. Also, TH was DYING for a latte!! Even TS doesn't have a Starbucks at her home.
>>741 Oh I see now. Thanks! Yeah I'm sure it's been eons since he had a coffee because she's been plying him with tea. You know because he's English and such a big tea drinker.
Now that they're away from the Marvel set and its strict rules, should we expect our regularly scheduled twice a day set of non staged perfectly natural pics? I sense a romantic and intimate dinner date coming up. With all 8 of the bodyguards.
>>742 Too subtle. Sex on the front lawn.
'A few cool things....'
This is interesting. Got the deets from a tumblr https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/10259616/officers
Is he gonna make his own now since no one's offering him any lead man roles?
>>744 He has several, one of which he shares with HBC which we talked about in the past. We decided that they are probably ploys to avoid handing too much money over to HM Revenue as he's never once produced anything with them.
She IG'd several hours ago a happy birthday message to SG. There are some hate messages but no snake or poop icons. At the bottom of this article they felt the need to point out that she and Tom went to separate gyms today: http://thecelebrityauction.co/wp2/cwitter-article/taylor-swift-returns-to-instagram-to-wish-bff-selena-gomez-a-happy-birthday/
>>746 Is she going to frame that LIAR one and mount it on her wall next to the pic of Kanye interrupting her, and then talk about it in an interview of how she keeps reminders of the low moments to make her stronger?
>>747 That last tweet was such a shameless plea for kindness: 'I know what I'm doing is not going down well but PLEASE be nice to me tomorrow. PLEASE!!!'
I think he is genuinely afraid for tomorrow. He's probably grinding his teeth as he gets ready to go out for their first LA pap stroll.
>>749 The whole of Saturday will be a shameless plea for kindness. He is going to pull out all the stops to win back his disgusted fans- dancing, singing, sexy maths, foreign languages..
He is an idiot, so he may be completely calm.
>>744 It's a bit hard to ignore the timing of this new production company.
>>749 Yeah I think so too. You think he's been given a full assessment of the public and media's reaction to him and Taylor and Taylor's crash and burn? Or he's going by the ugly tweets he got?
>>751 Hopefully not everyone who works for him is a sad sycophant. They'd BETTER be reaching into his thick skull and showing him how this has affected him.
>>751 There's no way his team hasn't alerted him to the mess his fandom is in regardless of whether he's seen tweets. Not to mention mainstream press going for his jugular. Signing up for NerdHQ is desperate- he wouldn't have needed or chosen to do this pre- Swiftmas.
I still find it odd and contradictory that TayTo have made such a push leading up to CC. The haters are really hating now.
>>753 I posted earlier that I feel like this weekend, I'm walking down the road to a goodbye after SDCC and remain so unless he changes his association with the Drama Queen of 2016. My lust for his body and his decent acting jobs will remain.
>>752 Hope so. He did look pretty angry in those agent office pics but he was arriving there so it might just be Fri LA traffic angst.
>>753 I think the fans at SDCC will be kind to him. They're probably the ones who quietly support him no matter what (as they write fanfic about him falling madly in love with them)
>>754 It's probably because we've all realised his talk is cheap
Might be for the best if we all stop listening to him but I will definitely be here to sneer and chortle over every insincere word this weekend while I blame him for my hangover
>>750 last time I checked he was in 2 companies in the UK, on for his house, one a production company in London. This one created in July is interesting. Does he really need another production company for taxes purposes? Wouldn't one be enough?
>>757 He needs somewhere to stash the millions TS is paying him to be her "boyfriend."
>>758 And he keeps them in England?! Really all that money spent for his education was for nothing hahaha
Yes, he still has the other prduction company
He surely is nervous about NerdHQ, especially because 3 years ago the tickets for his conversation went sold out in a matter of second!
Now, 2 days after they went on sale both events aren't even sold out
>>760 Both Hiddleston events are showing sold out for me. I read the tickets went quickly this year too - people on Twitter were complaining that they were refreshing the page waiting for them to go on sale and still weren't able to get any.
>>745 A few lawyerly thoughts on the new company.
The one he shares with HBC has to do with his home. Basically you can have a building, or in his case a compound, where the owners each have a long lease of their apartment, but also have a share in the company which owns the freehold. The company will make decisions about work to common areas such as the roof. It is not identical to a co-op in terms of legal structure but that is the nearest equivalent and it serves the same basic purpose.
>>761 Oh yes, it is sold out on the ticket website. I was going by the nerdmachine schedule page where it doesn't show the sold out.
>>759 Thanks Couch - I just reminded myself by looking. This company has one shareholder (TH) and one director (TH) and £380k of assets. That is the classic tax efficiency structure. You don't want anyone else to share or control the loot!
>>762 thank you, I was counting on you for the legal aspect. I read at CB it could have to do with the South Sudan documentary he mentioned what feels like ages ago since the people involved with Appeal films have worked with UNICEF before.
>>762 Thanks Anon, he did seem to love producing TNM, I imagine that's where he's headed with this.
With the suspect timing are we all tinfoiling that the company his 'payment' for tanking his career for TS? It would explain all his compliancy in the pap walks, public pda and dragging his family through the press. Sort of, but not really.
>>766 love for money? The idea of him loving such a despicable creature is yuck.
>>767 I would very much like to be excluded from that narrative
>>766 The new company has assets of £2....so it's not likely to be a "reward". I also think it is very unlikely she would pay him some vast sum and then not retain control, either as a director or shareholder.
The other consideration is that doing this stuff takes time. You have to decide to set the company up, agree with the other director that they will be involved, attend a solicitor, get the papers sorted, attend again for signing. It can be done very quickly, don't get me wrong, but it usually isn't if there is no need. What I am saying is that its emergence on 1 July is probably coincidental and the result of a much longer planning period.
Appeal Films was incorporated in January 14. However there was a brief flurry of activity from it about 9 weeks ago. It set up an Instagram and posted 1 pic of I guess the 2 guys who are its directors: https://www.instagram.com/p/BFZ1ytRyN9n/
>>770 did you AF's twitter user pic? A photo of TH in South Sudan.
>>770 Notice the UNICEF building featured in the backdrop of the Instagram picture.
I was right - photo probably taken on 31.12.15 - https://twitter.
Someone pointed out that TS broke her iPhone screen. Throwing it at the wall when the Kimye story came out?!
>>775 Throwing it at TH after he messed up his interview quote?
>>776 I mean, I'm kidding. I bloody hope that's not the cause.
>>778 I hope not too.
I feel strangely weary of all this.
>>779 I tend towards the thought that, at least by this point, there is no "real" relationship going on. However, I wholeheartedly agree with your opinion of Taylor Swift, and this is what brings me to my problem with Tom: regardless of the relationship's realness, somewhere in Tom's mind he thought publicly linking himself up with her was a good idea. Spoiler alert: it wasn't. It was the most horrible idea ever. Bad Tom.
>>779 that's why, against all odds, I wished for this to be some sort of documentary video.
Anyone who says you are a bad fan or hater is full of shit. After all, if you were to apply the same info you on two people who are not famous, wouldn't your inference be the same?
I prefer a Tom inlove with a brainless blonde pole than a Tom capable of anything for a little publicity.
>>781 Yes anonsy, that's pretty much my thinking too. He chose all of this.
I only add that even if he didn't do his research properly at first, by now he must have, if not because he involved his family, the fact that he still doesn't want to walk away says a lot. And people should stop saying that he would look bad if he did, nobody has ever looked bad for walking away from bad people.
>>784 I agree, everyone knows what she is now, with the exception of delusional Swift worshipers. Your last point brings me back to my two scenarios - either he doesn't want to walk away (he's an awful person), or he contractually can't walk away (he's a fool).
>>785 TBH I didn't know anything really about her till this, just that she was a pop star and incredibly successful. I had no idea about the bad stuff because although it is there until recently it was not getting much traction in the headlines.
I can't decide if it's real or not. I was so certain that it was, and then it got weird. Really weird. When they realized some of the general public and a good number of journalists were questioning it, they just seemed so determined to make it look 'real' and give it legitimacy in the public eye. People falling in love, people in a real relationship, even those in the public eye and using said relationship for publicity, shouldn't have to 'do couple stuff' to legitimize their relationship - it should be obvious. They could have just shown up together and looked like people in a relationship do: together, happy, comfortable. Instead everything was rom-com OTT and seemingly done before planted paps: we hold hands, we kiss in the sunshine, I meet your family, we hold hands some more, we BBQ on a national holiday.
Seems Miss Crazy Intelligent and others have made an appearance in Dlisted's latest Tayto article. No surprise that they were introduced with this comment: 'Oh my Lord, the delusion...'
>>788 Yes, no matter how you spin it the result isn't very good. (hahah, Anon. I think you and your husband reached a sound decision)
>>789 You got to admire the courage...Nah I give them too much credit, it's just blind stupidity.
Or, maybe they are feeling competitive, the Hiddlestoners, more stoned than ever, out en masse to prove that they are more loyal and supportive than the Swifties and to achieve that they are blatantly ignoring all facts (case in point the latest CB's threads where the usual group of apologist uses logic fallacies and then compliment themselves on their sound logic while shading the other posters for not being so clever; they deserve TS as gf for TH)
Maybe you guys already knew this, I didn't.
The streaming of Hall H panels isn't live. They put up things later but streamed through the Comic-Con HQ app.
this is the link to nerdhq youtube page
Please like me. Please don't boo me in Hall H: https://twitter
>>794 Is he tweeting again?!
This one isn't as awschucks..3 mil..my ramblings as the last one but perhaps it signals a plan. Do we think he'll really pump out the tweets - personal (but obvs not about TS) and lighthearted - during CC?
>>795 This is his MO, isn't it. My image has been tarnished...time for SOCIAL MEDIA!!!!!! All the selfies, all the tweets, all the Facebook posts.
you can follow a live blog of WB panel here
>>791 Sometimes it seems like Crazy Intelligent has a vested interested in believing the love story.
>>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.
>>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?
>>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.
>>803 Veranda woman!! For the short time I read CB, that woman and her damn veranda tap danced on my last nerve every.single.day. 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.
Happy relaxed body language everyone! https://www.instagram.com/p/BINryo_A3Pn/
>>805 Oh my. Maybe JVR showed him those tweets he's been favoriting about Taylor stealing other people's work.
>>805 Shit. The classic defensive pose. I will not feel sorry for him. I WILL NOT.
Caption for both of them: "Imma set fire to that stupid beard."
>>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?
New shirt? A gift? A be brave my little soldier gift?
>>805 Whoa. No chill whatsoever, Tom. How I'd like to be in his mind right now.
>>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.
The style is very new. New shirt, new shoes - intended to disassociate? No dark shirt...not jacket...no grey shoes.
>>811 the white polo shirt (henley)? But it is so crumpled. One thing about her, she always looks neat and tidy and like she cares for her things.
This is what the shirt means:
"Look, everyone! I'm doing Nerd HQ wearing a white button down shirt! It's 2013 again and you all still love me!"
Will he smile? Do you think he's so tightly wound that he won't let himself enjoy it at all? No smiles, no laughs, nada.
>>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???"
>>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?
>>818 Yes, I should have said 'different' than what we've seen the past few weeks.
I've had gin. It helps.
Is it a white linen henley?
Comment of the year on tumblr: "I am hoping that that guy will be there again and he will shout "My wife doesn't love you any more"."
Someone pointed out he's wearing the same outfit was NerdHQ in 2013 (different colored shoes, but essentially the same:
Heading to Hall H with Olly and Luke in tow: https://twitter
>>826 Nice of Luke to show his face! Wonder if he's enjoying the shitstorm.
Looks like the gray shirt from one of the promotional tour interviews. I forget which one. They're all a blur.
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.
This is the shirt I was remembering. Looks too dark to be the same one he's wearing today.
>>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.
On an unrelated note, John Goodman looks great in these pics! He has lost a lot of weight and he looks 10 years younger! http://the-haven-of-fiction.tumblr.com/post/147857752803/hiddlestonredalert-yahoomovies-had-a-blast
From Yahoo Movies, a better look at that Henley
>>832 Alcomohol is seeping through my veins currently.
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.
Kong panel is starting.
Here's Couch Potato's liveblog link again in case anyone missed it:
Brie is finally on stage with the rest of the crew now. They're showing the SI trailer.
Full Shit Island trailer: http://hiddlesfashion.tumblr.com/post/147859222244/full-length-kong-skull-island-trailer-released-at
>>838 The trailer is heavily concentrating on SLJ and John Goodman. It doesn't make Tom look like the leading man in this. Him and Brie seem like the side love story.
Hum - no project lined up after Ragnarok: http://ladyoftheteaandblood.tumblr.com/post/147859185074/tom-hiddleston-talks-kong-skull-island-thor
Waving to Luke, telling him NOT to yank the harness up into the ceiling.
>>840 he probably feels better now he sat his ass down with no booing.
Questions from the crowd - squeaky bum time, a little more pensive.
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.
>>845 NerdHQ is still the wildcard here. I wonder if Zachary Levi will give a "no personal questions" order, or if they'll give Tom special treatment and screen the questions ahead of time just this once.
https://twitter . com/kylebuchanan/status/756944161576738821
>>847 Yeah, I think journalists and insiders will be a little more reluctant than fans to let him forget about the manipulation and media games in which he's indulged over the past month.
>>847 God the stans are outraged. Get over yourselves. All he is at the moment is tabloid fodder, and soon to be unemployed tabloid fodder at that.
What will he do if he has no project lined up by Xmas? Go on tour with TayTay?
TH needed to hand out a TS single to everyone! Come on girl, help your boy out!
>>850 Maybe he's got projects he can't talk about yet. Maybe.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BIN9eNYjrm-/ So relieved.
Brie's thinking, 'I better not get caught in your crossfire, fucker.' TS won't like the casual arm on the back of Brie's chair...it's almost like he's touching her!!
>>858 In Tay-land that's basically full-blown cheating.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BIN-0UKgUpL From a manners perspective, a woman should be given a seat in a less crowded space. But JH needed to be next to his man, and TH probs wanted to be next to JH.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BIN-xrKABe9 Haven't watched. Kinda can't watch.
>>860 Side note, those are definitely not new shoes.
The whole talk with Josh: https://vimeo.com/175967069
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.
Entertainment Weekly podcast on Soundcloud (no account wall to go through) : https://soundcloud.com/ewradio/kong-skull-island-star-tom-hiddleston-on-what-attracted-him-to-the-king-kong-story
Oh joy he's standing next to and possibly touching another woman: http://royals-of-maliciousness.tumblr.com/post/147866630834/tom-hiddleston-and-brie-larson-during-the
>>857 My research tells me Kyle hates Taylor's songs. Receipt - review cited in the wiki entry for her song "Mean" - http://www.vulture.com/2011/05/taylor_swift_mean_video.html
On the other side, he seems to be okay with Tom but is snarky about all the fan love he gets at cons and festivals. Receipt - http://www.vulture.com/2014/07/crimson-peak-tom-hiddleston-comic-con.html
Unless something else happens, this will be my last one for the night and I'll look forward to your comments in the morning. Twitter user taylorsnextsong has been having an epic meltdown all day over his presence and warm reception at SDCC. One tweet is really weird though - this autographed picture :
I watched the trailer: unless the critics slash it, I'll be watching only for SLJ.
I watched a few videos of TH, it made me want to punch his face.
The cast of ‘Kong: Skull Island’, stops by the Fandango Studio at #SDCC to talk to hosts Kristian Harloff & Nikki Novak about their upcoming film.
MTV interview with JH, maybe I'm seeing things that are not there, but he seemed to be out of synch with the rest of the guys.
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.
>>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.
>>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.
>>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!
While SDCC was happening, TS went to the gym again
>>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.
Meanwhile her sidekick thinks TH has fallen for TS a little bit, but she hasn't for him.
Kong full panel
Best part of the panel at the end when they get asked what they watch on Netflix
"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.”
>>886 The Exprss is a less successful version of the Mail.
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.
do not read this while drinking
do read this if you had a drink
"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."
>>887 Yes, I thought that was the one thing that looked totally plausible.
>>888 I just rolled my eyes so hard they flipped completely around and popped right out of my head.
>>888 I just saw this and was about to post it.
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.
Also who the hell says they have committed to [their girlfriend] with authenticity?
The man is shit at lying and the need to stop letting him talk.
>>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?
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"?
Time for the boy to,take a seat.
Maybe the interviewer asked him about something else and he gave that answer, and they tried to make it look like he was talking about TS?
>>896 I should add: it's bullshit, but I think it's his standard bullshit when asked about fame and the like.
Captcha: buttong. Is that a word we can use to insult TH? He's being a real buttong lately.
>>891 Basically. anonsy is right, it's better if he starts using emojis to express himself.
>>897 But remember, we know see that he's got his own problems with inauthenticity. He talks a good game, but he's not walking it.
And that may be the true downfall of this relationship: two manipulative, two-faced people who aren't being honest with themselves or each other. That's a fucking disaster of a relationship.
>>902 Ahh, but those are the words we all loved not so long ago. We swooned over his down-to-earth, authentic nature. I think he's partly being lazy and just trotting out his well-practiced answers but I also think that he's trying to re-butter the toast...after it's been dropped on the dirty, dust-covered floor, and a rodent (faced woman) has gnawed on it. He might as well give it a try because he's not got a lot of options at this moment in time.
"I was thinking about this yesterday, about the need to be true in everything. It’s not that I choose to stay in character or reinvent the Method. It’s just what people demand to see. I do too. We’re all moved by authenticity. There are certain magic tricks in creating an illusion. But commitment, risk and authenticity are the most powerful things in all art."
"The fate of Coriolanus dramatizes the conflict in the heart of every public figure: the war between integrity and popularity. It’s a play about soldiers, politicians and the people. It’s a play for our time; for any time."
“I have tried with all of my power for there not to be any inauthenticity,” he says. “There is no version of me presented to you that’s been created or is artificial. The people I’ve always respected have an integrity that is unassailable.”
>>908 Awww, he's doesn't respect himself...or his girlfriend.
Ugh. I thought the People article was a retread of an older one from June or so. I've grown sick of the long ramblings. They're no longer charming - now they sound like issue-dodging.
>>910 Based on his one other statement about TS ("together and happy") and the fact that any other time Tom's mentioned "authenticity" it's been about a role, I'm going to say I think that quote was solely about The Work. But of course, People can't write an article about Tom without mentioning TS - they seem to be one of the publications that kisses her ass at every opportunity.
>>911 That's the thing. Even if he was asked that in the context of his work, People put it down as an answer to how he's dealing with all the extra attention. If he really is saying that regarding his persona life, it makes him look the complete opposite of authentic. Right now, Taylor is a liar in the eyes of the public and media, and Tom choosing to stand by her side through this shows him as accepting of that kind of lying and manipulation. Together these two are the most inauthentic couple. All his interviews from yday made me roll my eyes and scoff. Unless she's got him blinded to her true nature (highly doubt it they've been living together lately), he's probably exactly like her. It's really disgusting and disturbing.
Someone's been reading the papers. He has a new jacket: http://damageditem.tumblr.com/post/147906647448/ladyoftheteaandblood-thiddlestonfans-tom
>>916 Looking at the pictures, it seems like he's actually leaving the hotel. Like he's getting his things out of his room and putting them in the back of the vehicle. Hopefully going back to Oz, alone.
But, staying or leaving, WHY does he have a hotel room when his supposed girlfriend has multiple properties in the area???
>>917 I think you're right anonsy, he is leaving. Torrilla has just posted photos of him and Luke boarding a commercial flight (!!!) - she says they are leaving from LAX. She is usually pretty accurate.
No sign of the limpet.
>>920 Maybe our prayer circle worked! Alone at SDCC and what looks like alone back to Oz?! It's Christmas in July!
That's curious that he was staying at a hotel, although it would explain the different gyms (I'm guessing she wasn't staying with him or she would have been papped). Even more curious that he is boarding with Luke. Why would Luke need to go with him to Oz?
>>923 To help him get his shit straight. I'm being facetious, but really, Luke's his Cat Herder and Tom's in need of that right now. And I'm not even wearing my tinfoil hat.
>>922 I can go back hoping it was for a documentary video? (it's a false hope I know, it iwll only last until the next papstroll)
>>924 Luke is coming through for us! And his wallet.
Apparently, he's been a jerk to some fans during the filming of ISTL
>>927 Not sure what I make of that. That account says it is a pseudonym and it doesn't seem to have much activity other than to tell this story (I didn't scroll that far back but it was only discussion of this I could see). And "I went without groceries to send him his gift". Hm.
>>927 Saw that on tumblr, and a couple people raised some interesting points questioning its validity.
1) Security is there to protect the actor. They would never tell a random fan they couldn't take something and to give it directly to the actor. If they did, what's the point of security even being there?
Don't hate me but that's her driver and car. It's the same one in the gym pics from the past few days and the driver you can see if you google any pics of her in LA. I think he was probably staying with her. His luggage came out of her car and then went straight into another one.
>>930 If he was stopping at the hotel solely to pick up Luke, I'd think Luke would be in the photos.
Just as long as she wasn't on the plane back to Australia.
>>930 The SUV from the gym the other day is white. All the SUVs I can see in the photos from today are black, unless I'm missing photos.
>>932 Yes, this is really all that matters. Luke being around is a good sign as well - at the very least maybe damage control is beginning.
>>934 Ah, I didn't look at the pics of her. I try to avoid looking at her annoying smug face as much as possible. She probably does have a whole fleet of cars, though from all the other pics I've seen it seems like she prefers all black cars.
I'm hoping the shitshow is about to get a curtain. But I don't want to get my hopes up. I think this fish's head has started to go bad, but I'm not sure Mr. and Ms. Most Authentic are ready to throw it out. Have I used enough metaphors?
>>927 We've all been jerks and as we've seen, he capable of some dodgy stuff. But this may be one of those Loki loons that anonsy's quote mentioned. Because if you're going to drive all that distance to give it to him and then go without groceries to pay for the postage to send your homemade Loki inspired lamp shade, then you're likely a Loki Loon. And I bet security probably had a whole trailer full of crap dropped off for him. They take stuff like that all the time for celebs.
>>934 I have the same feeling. I think she'll follow him at a later date. I don't think they're done. Why get papped arriving into LA together holding hands if you're through? Or why bother getting her car and driver dropping him off to take the other ride to LAX if you're starting the breakup rollout?
TH fans leaving:
What if she joins him a few weeks because 'they just couldn't bear to be apart' or 'he begged her to come to Oz because he was lost without her.'
I wouldn't be able to deal people. I'd need to be talked down off the metaphorical ledge.
>>940 oh god, that's so damn cheesy yet I can totally see People or E! printing that with pics of her arriving in Oz and another date night stroll. Maybe a beach stroll. They love their beach strolls.
I think the TH fans are done with him. It's only the Loki fans left now and they honestly don't care what else Tom works on as long as he does a good Loki. And the Swifties obviously will always support Taylor and everyone else who says otherwise is a sexist and programmed by society to hate on a successful confident woman like her eyeroll
>>927 >>928 >>929 I remember that. It went along with 2 other stories of that time: an extra that got kicked out the production after a makeup person noticed she was wearing a loki t-shirt during costume fitting, and another person who wrote a script and tried to move heaven and earth to get it to him during filming.
Look at these two lovebirds. He looks ready to exit via the emergency slide. The caption about sums it up...TS and her new bf. Must have been LAX to SYD or SYD to the Gold Coast
>>943 Ah yes, back two weeks ago when they just couldn't stop being photographed everywhere and totally had to fly commercial. Back before the private rented jet and getting into Los Angeles without being photographed.
>>936 They're pages back now I'm sure, but one was relaying your info about TS's drivers and SUVs, and another my comment about the different colors of the vehicles. I thought maybe it was coincidence but then one of them said something about not being able to answer questions about their info because they were getting the info from another site. And I went "Another site?! That's us! We're tumblr famous now!" The messages were showing up on TOD just a few minutes after we posted the same info here, so the timing as well made me think this board was the source.
>>945 I've been noticing direct crossovers especially on TOD for a while, even mirroring words we've made up. This is the only place I post so I can guarantee I'm not the leaky sieve.
I literally snored through his interviews but I gather he was consistently unremarkable at CC and is now being chaperoned by his wife Luke back to Oz. Things are seemingly back to normal then. For the time being.
>>946 I haven't watched the trailer yet. I can't be arsed. I won't be making a special effort to see it like ISTL. I'll have an actual human being who is totally dependent on me for his/her needs at that point, so that $17 is going to go on diapers. I'll watch it when it's on Netflix or tv. Or pick it up in the DVD bargain bin at Duane Reade.
Seriously speaking, I agree with Anon. and NewAnon, they are not done, at all. And Luke presence doesn't mean much I'm afraid. She will go back to Oz.
This "not be seen together so much" might have to do with TH campaigning for his Emmy. He needs not to be seen as a laughing stock, so the less they are seen together the less mocking. The less mocking the higher chances that voters might not think of TS as soon as they read his name.
>>946 I thought it was very clichè in the distribution of roles, but I appreciated that the trailer focused on SLJ and Goodman. The silhouette of Kong looks a bit ridiculous. But as trailers go, it was good. I doubt the film will though.
According to an anon at TOD TS's took her jet and went to Nashville. TH's destination is unknown, so far.
>>947 I may start referring to it as Diaper Island in your honor.
I've never witnessed a couple who have had to try so hard to be believable other than wives of Tom Cruise. They actually failed to register as authentic when demonstrating their wordless world love tour of pda action.
>>948 It would seem someone has had a word and told him to dial it back- maybe his agent since he furiously tweeted after that visit.
Posting this for the 2nd photo, captioned 'Tom is "authentic"'- mein got that's going in my 'get over Tom' file
>>943 Scared me, thought that was from Sunday until I looked at the date.
>>945 >>946 I haven't followed TOD since she came back with the new URL because they're mostly breathlessly frantic swiftie anons. I looked at it around dinnertime and there are pages of talk about the SUV and assumed travel plans. I didn't realize they >>951 They keep insisting he went to London not Oz.
>>953 "He added: "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 OK."
WTF is that? Is this "something to write home about" or not?
>>948 He should probably let his gf know he's trying to lay low because in the absence of pap strolls, she can't help herself from releasing "Tom just loves Taylor so much and wants to prove himself to her" tabloid leaks to E! and People. The world must never forget the 8th wonder of the world, Hiddleshit.
>>955 Lol I really hope it's not his something to write home about because it honestly sounds like he's talking about a role. I said a couple of posts above that's it's hard to figure out if he's talking about his relationship or his work because of how People published the quote first. Either way if I were his girlfriend, I'd be extremely cross with his verbal diarrhea everytime someone asks him about me or us.
>>945 I check tumbrl from time to time but I have never commented there
>>958 I think there are a few people who just read the board here and don't comment, but occasionally pass the info along to tumblr.
>>959 We do still get some of the best stuff here. For example Anon's Twitter plane pic from yesterday I haven't seen anywhere else. Theo Anons did have some good stuff but TOD doesn't have a source with real Twitter skillz, by which I mean finding the things that are hidden deeply in the feed.
From July 22, at the Four Seasons Hotel:
A comment at CB (no link) led me to this small but truly golden nugget of Tom irritation:
>>962 You can just feel the love pouring out of him at the mention of her name.
>>962 he looks so pissed off. Get used to it, buddy.
>>963 I have seen him use the word "buddy" before as an expression of intense hatred for the recipient. Wish I could remember when!
His face really changed when the T word was mentioned. Makes me think of this great line from Jeeves and Wooster: "Ice formed on the butler's upper slopes."
>>965 hahaha that's the perfect description! But you know he is authentic, don't you dare doubt him!
I don't if it's true, but this one's funny.
"According to a source, the British actor has been advised by the Shake It Off singer to switch gyms so there's no danger of him bumping into her ex-boyfriend."
>>967 And while mention of him being her puppet kicks off the article, it becomes another way for the press to write about TS vs. Calvin and insert the Kardashian name.
So these pictures >>961
These were taken the day of the meeting with his agent, before Comic Con. Same clothes, and driving the same car. He's arriving back at the Four Seasons Hotel - the photos aren't captioned as such, but the pavement tiles are a match, as are the gold luggage carts in the background.
>>971 Yes, I was trying to work that out too! I think you're right.
>>971 That would mean he spend the night at Taylor's after SDCC and then returned to his hotel to check out and switch into the car provided by Marvel (if he's returning to Oz).
>>971 Then I'm a bit puzzled over why he was unloading his stuff from TS's car in front of the hotel. Or he was loading her car to go to the airport?
Did he maybe stay in SD that night for functions / parties and fly back the next morning? So transferring his overnight backpack into the car at the hotel that has been loaded with his stuff to go to LAX?
Jinx! Though yours is a much better description anonsy.
>>975 what?!!! He went from Sain Diego directly to the airport without visiting Taylor Swift? Unless she's waiting for him at his destination, that is very unlikely.
>>975 "The small luggage and backpack, which he had with him in San Diego, were transferred from the car that dropped him off to the car that was going to take him to the airport."
Which one of these cars was Swift's? Because if it was the one that dropped him off, then something doesn't fit. If instead it was the car loaded, it's all good.
>>975 I think the only flaw in this argument is the idea of Tom having large luggage and small luggage!!. I think the small wheeled bag we saw was the totality of Tom's luggage for the entire trip to the US. He may well have gone to San Diego with only the backpack for a single night - he then returns to the Four Seasons to collect the small bag.
Now I believe every word of the Sun's story! http://www.gossipcop.com/taylor-swift-comic-con-banned-tom-hiddleston/
They rush to debunk all the true ones, I am beginning to notice. She's split with Calvin, she never had a boob job....she isn't a loser limpet who was banned from SDCC....
>>960 I've not been my usual sleuthing self with twitter or IG - for several, obvious reasons. But I wanted to test myself yesterday to see if 'I still had it.'
His twitter tag is a mess. I won't be going back; I'm happy to let others find the gems. IG is even more disastrous because of the saturation hashtagging that goes on there.
>>968 1. Luke had THs glasses hanging on the front of his own shirt for him in that video? Adorable. Luke is loyal. He rocks. And TH looks great with glasses. He should rock them or carry them with him with confidence.
2. 2 hours from SD to LA. But SD has an interl airport where TH could have left from for Australia, however, he returned to LA. Why didn't TH just check out of the hotel before he left for SD? And if he stayed overnight with TS after comic con, why didn't he check out of the hotel before the convention, and why didn't TSs driver just drive TH all the way to the airport himself from her house?
>>983 GC should just pack it in. All these 'debunking articles' do nothing but seemingly confirm the opposite.
I think he went to Taylor's after SDCC. I don't think he attended any of the after parties because I think it would've showed up on someone's IG or snapchat. Then he went back to his hotel in the morning and checked out then, hence his SD luggage from Taylor's car and the bigger luggage being piled into the other car because that's the one that was in his hotel room. Thats the only way her car and the extra luggage makes sense to me now after seeing the July 22 pics.
Michael K has done us a service with the graphics on this one.
I'll just leave this here:http://www.gossipcop.com/taylor-swift-pregnant-tom-hiddleston-baby/
>>989 Probably doesn't want her 10-year-old fans to think she's having sex. Ewwww. They're just holding hands and closed-mouth kissing - all PG-13, kiddies.
>>988 Her face on the snake emoji! LOL! Omg that's amazing! She really is thin-skinned. Having IG come up with a new tool just for her. Special snowflake princess that she is eyeroll Since Tom thinks he's a special authentic snowflake, do they fight over who is more special and unique lol
Detailed analysis of this past weekend by toddy:
I cannot quite believe this but the stylist is owning the SDCC "outfit". Whaaaa?
>>992 I agree that TH was staying at the hotel, the evidence it's all there and clearly TS wasn't with him. also clearly they didn't see each other since he left for SDCC.
But Anon. said that was Swift's car because it was the same driver she saw some place else I don't remember now.
>>993 yes, can you believe it? And she merely recycled stuff from his press tour in April, down to the shoes.
"joshuahorowitzHappy/Sad/Confused. With Tom Hiddleston & Brie Larson & Jason Mitchell & Corey Hawkins & John Goodman."
Sooooo funny, I laughed through the entire article.
>>997 I love how this scores 1/10 and not 0/10. Tom is a gigolo but only for the private plane!!
>>997 Also, "Gossip Cop is assured that Hiddleston picks up tabs for meals and other expenses." Is this the reference to the coffee he bought at the service station? It still makes him sound like a freeloader. Where is the sentence saying, "he paid for the €2000 a night suite in Rome" ??
