Thread to talk about the actor Tom Hiddleston
I'm also wondering to what extent, if any, GC is now being used by Luke - having taken some lessons from her publicist.
Luke: Yes, he pays for the odd cup of coffee. No, he's not trying to get her pregnant!!
>>2 "hasn't had a boob job" in the sense that she has had 2.
>>4 Which I don't care about - her money, her body - except that she deliberately sought out GC and lied about it. Either keep quiet or come clean. Still, not her style I guess.
>>6 Exactly, this seems to be her MO: lying and trying to shape reality to her wants. It's absolutely her body and her choice. My dearest friend in the world has had a nose job and breast implants. I supported her because I could give a shit, nothing to do with me. It's that TS has actively lied about it. Not a 'no comment' approach or refusing to acknowledge rumors about her body and her decision - no, she seeks out friendly outlets and attempts to convince us that the reality we see isn't reality because she doesn't like it.
Other than another 'TS banned from CC' article surfacing from Jezebel (using the Mirror as a source), is there anything new about TH today and his whereabouts? I just scanned TW and IG, not luck.
A bit of prick teasing from the BBC today: http://twh-news.tumblr.com/post/148008263753/so-bbcstore-tweeted-this-today-i-have-no-idea-if
Will TH be playing Lazarus, the third Holmes brother? (& if so when will he/has he filmed this?)
>>9 there was also that tweet by Gatiss at ComicCon wasn't there?
I doubt he would be, he was never seen on Sherlock set.
I watched the series, he wouldn't fit.
Updates according to Twitter:
One sighting of Tom in NYC.
https://twitter . com/TheChickFlick/status/757678707100221440
>>12 So he's in NYC. Isn't his American PR team based in NY? Maybe it's a meeting with all his publicists to figure out a game plan against the snake and her team.
Lol I like how the tweeter was like she wanted me to notice her. Is she yelling at him because they know each other?
>>13 "Hey! You! Man on the sidewalk! Go tweet about me! TELL THEM I'M A LOVELY GIRL!"
>>14 LOL! I really hope the man replied back "please leave me alone I never asked to be a part of this narrative"
The VMA nominations were announced today and she received zilch while Famous took 3. Maybe she's just yelling at random strangers in aggravation.
>>12 (Not that it matters much but I mixed up my days, Taylor's jet flew to Nashville on Sunday. Same day Tom and Luke flew out of LAX.)
I am amazed he is in New York. What in the name of God was/is his part in Thor 3? Maybe Anonon can share her insider knowledge. I know set ups can take some time, but is it normal for someone to arrive on set and then just - take a week off 2 weeks later? Wouldn't it have been better if he just arrived later in with the others who have been arriving in the last few days?
>>17 He did say at SDCC that he had to get back to Oz to continue filming, so he's not done yet. Karl Urban just got to set this week, so maybe they're focusing on his scenes (or other characters' scenes) since Tom had other obligations.
Okay, some information.
When Tom was in NYC in June, he stayed at the Crosby Street Hotel. He was seen exiting and returning to the hotel carrying his laptop and a manila envelope on June 17. In the second photo you can see the contents of the envelope - a large stack of papers.
Roofie - not rookie. Autocorrect, you bastard.
He's on a plane, almost definitely to LAX.

>>25 I feel like we're in the middle if a really long drumroll.
How befitting, TH has just been announced as the winner of 'Rear of the Year'
It has nothing to do with behaving like an arse
>>27 I have to say, his rear is award-worthy. That's one thing that hasn't changed.
>>22 I await the arrival of my consignment!
The reprogramming will include a module that I have devised specially and named "More Than One Pair". Participants will receive training about the benefits of multiple shoe and underpant ownership. There will be practical lessons in the form of a field trip to Selfridges.
>>25 I mean, what???? Will he ever do any actual work? What has happened to Earnest Globetrotter Tom, Marvel's hardworking company man? I seriously thought he would be back on the plane to Oz on Sunday.
Eton, Cambridge, RADA, and now "Taylor Swift's boyfriend" and "Rear of the Year." His parents must be so proud.
Going through security at JFK: this is the first time he has removed those boots in about 2 months. http://ladyoftheteaandblood.tumblr.com/post/148034953209/tomhiddlestonandtaylorswift-tom-hiddleston
The pap thing worries me...where there are paps....
>>34 Where is the limpet? Is she coming back to Australia?
Urgent prayer circle.
>>39 What time is it in LA? Must be a bit late for a connecting flight. It would be pretty punishing to go JFK-LAX-HI-Gold Coast.
For some reason I have a really strange feeling that she's going to show up. Urgh. It's probably just indigestion!
>>40 It's 10:45pm in Los Angeles now. I think his flight landed around 10:15pm. There's one flight from LAX to Sydney that leaves at 11:00pm. I think that would have been cutting it a little close, though. Plus, like you said, that's a lot of flying in a row. Maybe he'll head out in the morning.
>>44 She said he was leaving, but she was also having a bit of a meltdown after riding in the elevator with Tom, so I'm not completely sure we should believe her yet.
This is like the worst horror film ever. Why isn't he running faster? Will he get out before the monster comes? What was that noise? Was that the monster?
>>46 LOL!!! Scarier than Crimson Peak, that's for sure.
>>44 I think you can only fly LA-GC via Hawaii. Otherwise it is via Sydney (as on commercial flight of lurve a few weeks ago). I wondered if even globetrotting Tom might hesitate doing either of those flights straight off a flight from JFK hence leaving the airport. But please God let him be straight on a flight tomorrow. Otherwise, what the hell kind of a relationship is this? Who wants to be with one another 24/7 for weeks on end?
>>46 You heard of Alien Versus Predator? This is "small flightless bird" versus Predator.
>>48 I think the reason they went LAX, SYD, GC last time was because the HI to GC flights don't have first class - am I remembering that incorrectly? Maybe TH would be fine with Bus. class or whatever they have on HI to GC.
>>49 I actually LOVE that movie. I love how the human woman and the predator join forces. So I'm going to say TS is actually the Alien, not the predator.
I've never personally flown through LAX, but according to a bunch of "travel experts" here on the internet, Tom would have to collect his baggage and then re-enter through customs to board an international flight. Can someone tell me if this is correct? If it is, the person who said he was leaving may have seen him with his luggage and just assumed he was leaving.
Shit guys the jet is flying.
Captcha: helply. Yes, captcha. We need helply.
Unless he's getting on that 11:00pm Qantas plane I think we're screwed.
>>53 Urgh. She is coming back to Australia with him, I know it.
>>56 I wasn't hoping for a break up. Just a break. Something that would indicate some sort of normal attitude to relationships.
Let us not forget that in mid May this woman was vacationing with someone else. Then since (say) 10 June she has spent - what? - 4 or 5 days apart from TH (when she briefly dropped him in London and now). Rebound much?
>>53 How can you tell her jet is on the move again? Is there a site or somesuch?
Damn. So close. I guess they'll be leaving in the morning with paparazzi snapping them hand in hand.
I was really hoping he'd catch some perspective if he got some time apart. But I guess not.
>>57 Hmm, TH is the only positive thing for her right now, she is going to cling to him like a mussel to a rock.
Here's the thing that I'm not understanding. Tom takes a long cross-continent flight from JFK to LAX. Mere hours later, TS's jet is flying from Nashville to the west coast, I'm assuming the Los Angeles area. If they're going to fly out to Australia together, or stay in Los Angeles together, or whatever, why didn't he just meet her in Nashville and fly with her on the jet? Free flight. Private jet. With his "girlfriend."
>>61 maybe because Luke is with him?
captcha says: pine
I just feel like he can do the pap-free thing...unless he's leading us back to another pap stroll with her. It wasn't just indigestion.
>>59 I'm hoping it won't go to the Emmys. I can't take them on a red carpet.
>>52 I had to transfer my luggage after arriving in the US and transferring to another domestic flight, so the same would probably be the same for the opposite...but that probably doesn't matter now.
>>64 What am I thinking? This is what I'm thinking:
The plane has stopped over Arizona or New Mexico!
>>61 Who knows why. Maybe he didn't want to be on the flight with his gf and the 3 bodyguards.
>>64 I wish it were as easy as signing papers to get out. As with all relationships - whatever their status - I don't think it's so straightforward. She's going for it. He's going for it. We're along for the ride. It's been too long and bumpy already, I'm not sure how much more I can take.
The symmetry would be lovely though, a visit in NY when it all started, a visit in NY when it all ends.
She knows people track her jet. I mean God she could have sent it to Los Angeles empty when she knew Tom was landing just so she could watch everyone lose their shit. She's sitting in her Nashville mansion with her cats laughing her ass off at all of us.
The plane definitely stopped short!! The plane landed in either New Mexico or Arizona! Maybe friends or family are on the plane for a vacation. Maybe Taylor is going to a spa in Arizona or Mexico. That sounds like fun to me. Maybe a galpal spa weekend? I saw the plane disappear way before California. Gospel.
>>72 Jane would do this, cackling all alng. TS is on that plane because she's been away from him for more than 2 days and that's unacceptable.
Maybe when TH either pursued her or was pursued, he knew about her 3 month relationship average and is happy to go balls to the walls but only for 3 months. Maybe we just need to be patient, as painful as it may be. This is the lifesaver I'm going to cling to.
>>74 I think the website sometimes drops out before the full flight. We wouldn't be so lucky!
Anything is possible. I'm not one to argue. You all seem like such sweethearts, btw, and I would never want to start a fracas! And sadly, I am not a spy : ) However, the last time I tracked the TS plane, I watched as the plane dropped off the radar before the full flight was over. However, the TS plane dropped off the radar way after it entered California, right before it headed directly over the Los Angeles area. This seems quite different. But, I am happy to hear all theories. I am not an expert. Just relating my experience : )
>>78 sorry not even her plane but when* her plane lands and takes off? Or just take off?
What's this? Snakes on a plane again?
>>61 It doesn't make sense at all to disembark at LAX unless he's planning to stay for some length of time or really misses his hotel room.
Maybe TS parachutes out of her private plane to throw of the trackers. I would.
>>74 It popped up again on the radar for me once over Las Vegas. And now it says the flight is over.
>>81 Oh that could mean she did land in Burbank. Or she's in Vegas to see Calvin lol
I guess we'll all know soon enough!
I'm preparing myself for a loved up pap stroll, California style. Arrrgh! Why isn't he just back at work and having some breathing space? It's starting to feel quite creepy.
>>85 "Loved-up." I hate that phrase with the fire of a thousand burning suns.
Darn it! The plane picked up again, and disappeared right over Long Beach, near Los Angeles. Blah!
Does he have it bad or is this something of a reversion to the TH we know and love? He does his thing, wherever that happens to be, and the girlfriend follows along. It's just that she is richer and has more time on her hands. EO goes to Hawaii but not to Australia or Vietnam. TS goes to Australia, back to the US, then.....?
All right, I'm going to sleep in my tinfoil bed. Enough of this Tayto idiocy for one evening. I'm sure there will be plenty of paparazzi pics waiting for me in the morning.
I'll continue the prayer circle in my dreams.
>>82 That would be heaven
Where's the pap shots from tonight? Did he tell them to come back in the morning for better shots?
I would love it if he's dumped her and she's doing this plane flying crap as a stunt to save face in front of fans who she knows track her plane. She must've seem them all having fits on social media that Tom is flying without Taylor and not being able to handle it.
>>92 She'll skype in that deposition, there's no way in hell she would actually turn up to court, it's no place for innocents.
>>93 It sounds like she has to be there in person - http://www.gossipcop.com/taylor-swift-deposition-groper-david-mueller-court-lawsuit-sexual-assault-slander/
Right? I don't have much knowledge of legal proceedings so I could be reading the article wrong.
>>94 No Skype.
A deposition is an advance form of cross-examination, but not conducted in front of the judge and jury. It is usually at one or other lawyer's office and it is recorded by video (what TS didn't want) and transcribed by a stenographer. The client will be there with his or her lawyer and so will the other side and his or her lawyer (hence her complaint about this guy being in the same room). The opposig side's lawyer does the cross examination. You are under oath when you make a deposition (that's what the article means by "in court").
>>95 Thanks Anon, I was just about to call in your expertise as I obviously have to idea about these matters.
When is this deposition supposed to take place?
>>96 No problem! Together on this board we know something about everything: life on set, the workings of UNICEF, negotiating prenups (sorry, I will wash my mouth out now).
No idea when the depo is. Someone said August, I think.
'A source close to Hiddleston assures us that his PR team is not trying to get the actor to break up with Swift.'
He's an angry man these days.
>>99 So says Taylor's publicist....my current theory is that she runs to GC to debunk the true stuff (see discussion upthread).
>>100 This is what he wants, so suck it up, guy.
>>101 I share your theory, if not because her people ran to GC to debunk the rumour of her breakup with Calvin after the Met Gala videos and we all know how that turned out.
>>100 All the better to look joyous and in lurve when reunited with his true lurve...and the more friendly paps. Yes I've become that jaded.
>>100 You know what his face looks like?
Tom: (opens planefinder) Oh shit, she's following me.
>>106 Asking ALL the questions to which we want answers:
Do you regret dating Taylor Swift with all the drama she causes?
>>106 I'll watch later. Did he ask: Would you like to be excluded from this narrative?
>>107 Yes, but all those flashes kept me from seeing his face!
>>108 No, but he was also asked if he had thought about Kaney and Kim.
>>106 damn that question "so you regret dating Taylor with all the drama she causes?" Ouch! Is this the kind of visibility and attention he wanted?
That wasn't her SUV was it? The driver didn't look like hers.
do* you regret not so
I want a pap to ask "Would you like to be excluded from this narrative?" just once. Okay, I'd like every pap to do it evert time, but I'd be satisfied with just once.
If those are the questions the paps are asking Tom, imagine the feeding frenzy when it'll be Taylor and Tom together. If they're going to do a pap walk later, it'll be those far away ones where his face is blocked and she's grinning. Like last week's LA ones.
>>114 True. Before it was 'is this a publicity stunt?' Now, there's a whole new menu: publicity stunt, relationship as deflection, liar, Kanye, Kim, engagement, defamation suit, etc.
There are so many possibilities now for pap questions. Think anyone will ask about Tom's work? Or notice him!
>>115 To highlight this, I just clicked through to the comments on the DM article. They're all about TS and the awards. He barely gets a mention on the first few pages.
>>115 Absolutely to your last sentence. Have you seen the clips of him lording it up on the balcony. Loving the attention.
>>118 Her plane never landed in NYC, the Swifties made that up. Not that it makes it any less weird.
>>119 Oh okay. You're right, that makes it even weirder. If he's going to wait for her anyways, why not just go to Nashville and come with her then hop onto the Oz flight together? We can't argue that he has work stuff that he needed to do in LA before the Oz flight because she landed literally a couple of hours after him last night.
Perfection. This sums up how I feel. I love that the suitcase handle makes it look like he's using a cane. He's picked up her posture - twinning!
About Ed SHeeran, but some funny Tayto bits throughout:
I can't find the pic, but I'm pretty sure this guy is part of TS's security team in NYC. I could swear he was pictured leading TH to the Met afterparty.
LIES. I tell lies. (Damn baby-brain.) I don't think it's him now. But I'm certain he's a bodyguard/driver of some sort. Does anyone recognize him?
TH may still be a kept man!!
>>123 Here is the pic. Hard to say if they are the same person. This guy at the airport looks younger and thinner.
>>125 It doesn't look like the same guy. Besides the weight, their noses don't match.
Yeah, I realized it's not him. but I've seen this guy before. I just can't place him.
It's going to drive me crazy. I'm such a dog with a bone. I'm still mainly known in the office as the woman who went through 400+ satellite images to find one building...that turned out to not be at all important!!
This will probably be the same.
He doesn't look like one of Taylor's. Have one of the Swifties claimed anything? They know all her guards and their names and DOBs and favorite color. If one of the Swifties claims him as one of Taylor's along with an old pic as support then the snake and her spineless bf are still going strong.
>>129 Yes. Yes she would. Just listen to the things she says on that phone call with Kanye, the way her mind works, and then look at how she ended up turning it around on him anyway. She'd do it, absolutely.
>>129 Not that I know. I just saw the pic on IG and recognized him in a vague sort of way. Now that I'm home, I'm going to give it a few minutes and Google.
Here we go. Much quicker than with the satellite pics but just as meaningless. This is from the Tribeca FF so he's TH's NYC guy, def. security as he walked the fan line with him.
TS was just spotted at her gym in Los Angeles, Body by Simone! But still no sign of TH. But it seemed TH was picked up from LAX in one of the black Marvel SUVs, which has a very different silhouette from TS's Toyota Sequoias that she uses on the West Coast. BTW, it looked like TH drove TS's Mom's silver Toyota Sequoia to meet his agent when he was papped in the parking lot, and at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Can anyone confirm this?
A blind, so the usual disclaimer. But some of the comments are interesting.
'I MADE EYE CONTACT WITH TOM HIDDLESTON AND SAW THE SIDE OF TAYLOR SWIFTS HEAD'
'His eyes are incredibly dreamy and I nearly fell down the stairs, WHAT A FAB BIRTHDAY'
'@twhiddleston Thank you for the eye contact in a restaurant tonight, I loved everyone millisecond and it made my 16th birthday 😉😂xx'
Remember when we used to worry about THs one loony tweeter who harassed anyone with a theo sighting?
Well within minutes of these tweets, at least 6 insane swifties ruined the party.
>>136 I'd be surprised if there were no pics. But they've surprised us before.
>>137 She's only 16 so we can't even blame alcohol consumption. She also doesn't remember anything about what Taylor was wearing.
I have never evah been to a restaurant and immediately forgotten what I ate. Am I alone here in calling this a fake?
Photos may still surface but unless they do I don't see how this couple can go unphotographed to a restaurant full of giggly schoolgirls when paps are apparently so hungry for shots.
>>140 Someone called her on it and she says she doesn't want to post the name of the restaurant and "wasn't paying attention to the food."
Unless paparazzi pics show up, I say... FAKE!
Well, she tweeted at him. Would you do that if you were just making it up? What if he responded and said it wasn't him, or if they showed up being pictured elsewhere?
I think they probably did go out for a meal. Let it be a good-bye meal before he heads off (wishful thinking!).
>>142 Judging by her Twitter she's a Hiddlestoner to some degree. She probably knows he never answers fans anymore. I've seen people @ him before and then have their sightings disproven. They just delete the tweets.
Yes, it's likely that they would meet up once more before he goes to Oz alone (prayer circle!), even if it's just to generate some fan sightings on social media. This just seems so... sketchy.
>>142 It seems the tweeter is on vacation from the uk, most likely with her parents which makes the sighting slightly more valid- I didn't think TayTo would go to the same restaurant as a group of 16yo's.
If I was a pap in LA I'd be camping outside her house. They are the biggest news story of the moment, it's ludicrous they can sneak around unseen. She was followed to the gym thismorning (but no TH- staying at the hotel again??).
>>144 He's always staying at hotels. I'm honestly starting to wonder if maybe he is gay. Maybe the Tom/Luke conspiracy theorists are getting to me. Or maybe all the tinfoil is disrupting my normal brain function.
It's real- photo proof
So what exactly is Fandemonium Net? Where did they get this picture?
>>151 When they arrived in Los Angeles from Oz we got pics of TS with Tom's hidden, now before one or both of them leave Los Angeles to go back to Oz we get a pic of Tom with her face hidden.
Coincidence? High priestess of the tinfoil shrine doesn't think so.
>>152 "High Priestess of the Tinfoil Shrine", I worship you!
Have you noticed our prayer circle made it onto TOD? Coincidence or not
>>153 Yes! I saw that!
All are welcome in the prayer circle. Join us. Pray for Tom's soul. And career.
Ugh. He must really be like her to keep at this. I'm really hoping this is a goodbye dinner and it's over now. But who the fuck knows. I really didn't think Tom would still choose to be with her after seeing how she really is.
>>156 So fast, it's almost like it was... planned in advance.
>>155 With all her faults she's still an A+ popstar and most likely the best score of his life so he's probably willing to ignore the fact she's a fibber and a bit racist cause he still can't believe his luck.
He's a famewhore and she's famous.
I'm predicting hand- holding LAX pics within the hour on their way back to Oz
Putting my psychic tinfoil hat on
Tom will wear blue jeans, grey suede shoes and a blue jacket
>>158 We always knew he was thirsty for fame though but I always thought he wanted to earn it through his work. Be famous for his work. Not for who he's dating. What's bugging most fans including me is how fake everything he said turned out to be. Everything he said he stood for, Taylor is the opposite of that. That's what's really bothersome. That he lied exactly the way she lies. I always thought he was a nice decent guy. But obviously not.
>>158 Oh, given what we know about her long history of manipulation, I now think that she spotted an easy target. I don't think she even needed to work very hard to land this fish. She has everything TH seems to crave as far as fame, popularity, lifestyle, success. He must have been a puppy from the very start, which we've seen.
Welp...shit (to quote the peanut-brained director)
I was expecting this, because by logic you can't go on record about how happy and together and AUTHENTIC you are and then break-up, but I was still hoping.
>>163 Well they did go to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Nashville. It's just a chain as well, and not a very good one (overpriced with mediocre food) and equally unromantic.
I want to see the bodyguards set up two tables over.
Remind me again why they aren't eating at fancy H'wood eateries? Oh yes, Her Boyfriend is picking up the tab. Surely if they go out as infrequently in public as it appears, he could splurge, right?
>>166 Maybe it's the classic cheap- arse dumping dinner. Boyfriends never splurge when there's one foot out the door.
We can definitely rule out an engagement. He's pulling out none of the stops to impress.
>>165 I think the restaurant they went to in the Gold Coast was a bit middle of the road too but at least they had a 'chef'
Okay, here's new information: "It's reported that Tom is in the states to film Thor."
This could legitimately be studio work in LA (voiceover, special set for secret scene) for Thor.
>>169 That sounds weird. Surely voice work would be done in a studio in Australia unless it was being done months later after the end of principal photography?
I wonder if the DM is just trying to find an explanation for the fact that he is STILL in LA. Maybe he had a week off. I would be amazed if he didn't soon head back to Australia soon - 2 weeks of filming would surely result in seconds of usable footage, so his role would be blink and you'll miss it. I find it very hard to believe that Marvel has put him in for such a short time. His role is the most anticipated part of Thor 3 (as it was for TDW, when they put more footage of him in). None of the fans give a monkey's about the Hulk. I can't believe Marvel would get it so badly wrong.
>>168 There's not much he can do for the film minus the director and the rest of the cast from another continent. I think they're just trying to explain his absence from set.
I'm not at all excited by Little Hiddles here. I think I'm nearly cured (insert another picture of TayTo with THs mum).
>>169 >>171 Voice work is usually saved for the completion of principle photography.
The only possible option here is a solo greenscreen scene which I'm positive the director would prefer to be present while filming with his trusted crew and own direction. I doubt they flew over his Loki costume and wig to shoot one scene which they could shoot in Oz.
>>168 If anyone is curious, he's staying at the same Four Seasons hotel again. Compare these to the scenery of the pics where he's walking, obviously finishing his run. He's about to round the corner into the drop-off area.
This also reminded me that TH debunked this rumour during the press tour in April - of course he said a lot of shit around that time, but at least about work maybe he still isn't bullshitting all the time.
(Before anyone thinks a lurker stole my screenshots from >>174, I submitted them to The Opinion Dominion myself.)
Look everyone, I'm tumblr famous! Sort of. Not really.
>>174 This hotel thing is so curious, I mean generally it'd be normal, but they spent 4 weeks basically living together. More evidence to the PR nature of this circus.
Director must be desperate to change the narrative back to the movie.
>>179 not wrapped but clearly not needed on set with urgency.
>>174 >>177 Thanks Anonsy- taking one for the team there.
>>178 It's not at all normal to stay in a hotel after only spending two days apart for two months.
Unless you're 'taking a break' or you still haven't had sex or you're one of those people who can't share a bed with an so (or you're faking it).
>>181 I agree, sorry I expressed myself badly, I meant that for a new couple it'd be normal not to live together yet, but given how they spent their time since it all started, it is as you say.
>>182 On the same page then. I could kindof see TH as the type to need his own bed.
They really are the odd couple.
>>183 I think they are the antithesis of eccentric. TS doesn't do anything that hasn't been planned and checked with whatever is trendy, TH not only isn't really up to speed with modern times he is quite repetitive in very boring ways. 2 eccentrics would have tied the knot already.
One more reason not to stand TayTo, they made me watch an interview with Cara Whathername
Cara D on Corden talking about ghost pranking at Taymurica. Mentions waking up Tom and Tay and TH is a hopeless night manager.
Seems they used to sleep in the same bed.. there's hope on the horizon!
>>187 hahaha it's the prayer circle, we are one mind.
>>188 I think we've become a hive; the hive of the high priestesses of the temple of foil
I think we should be happy that the source was not revealed. Otherwise 90% of tumblr would move here and we wouldn't want that.
As I said, if they go out...there are pics. They can't help themselves.
A week off of light filming is much more likely, yes. Or meetings at the hotel or VO for something completely different (SI? another book reading?).
>>192 They really can't be okay with just fan pics. They need to have professional pap pics. Because the relationship must play out in the public eye.
My opinion of Tom is completely done because he's continuing to be with someone like Taylor who has been outted as a complete liar and manipulator. I can't even give him any benefit of the doubt anymore because the kind of man Tom made himself out to be before, that man would not continue being with someone like Taylor after all her true colors have come out. Unless he's really naive and she's manipulating him too. But I don't believe he's that naive. He's enjoying the attention and is loving every second of it. He's more like her than I could've thought.
OMG! TH is so busy smiling to get his own image out there with the cameras in the E! News video at the restaurant door of Hillstone, that TH misses the darn door completely and walks the wrong way! That man loves a photo op. And Taylor had to yank him back to the entrance! Hysterical. Then on the way out, since TH has his glasses case in his hand, TS had to open her own car door, on an allegedly 'romantic' dinner date! Wild!
The E! news video.
>>191 In the first pic he looks happier than I looked in my wedding photos. He is loving the attention.
In the second pic they look like a couple of 40 year olds out on the town.
>>197 There's a video floating around. He's laughing because he walked past the entrance to the restaurant. Before that happens he has his usual "hostage situation Tom" bug-eyed pressed smile on.
There were paps waiting for them at a chain restaurant. I'd wager a month's mortgage payment (remember I live in NYC!) that those paps were called. And it was stupid of these two because you can explain away paps in front of Trendy LA Restaurant X, but not in front of a slightly more upscale Chili's.
I am going to sound like a total snob now, but they look so budget. Cheap outfits, cheap restaurant, cheap pap stroll. At least when Clooney released fakely candid pics of their engagement dinner to People they were nicely dressed and posed and it actually was at Nobu. But TayTo are not very aspirational (to anyone older than 12).
Hey anonsy, you are Celebitchy famous now! Look at comment 4.
>>200 I think this may be her thang. Her fans are always praising her for wearing things that can be bought - from her friend's clothing ranges!! - for less than $200, less than $100, etc. I think the red outfit she wore to the Selena concert was less than $100 and the Oz dress was around $50 on sale.
>>201 Wow, I'm almost as famous as Taylor Swift's boyfriend! First the prayer circles, now this.
Speaking of prayer circles. For anyone not lurking on tumblr, TS's jet has flown to Dallas and is allegedly going to continue on to Rhode Island (presumably after refueling). If this is the case I think we might see Tom head back to Oz alone.
So, when Tom is alone at the airport, the paps ask him about the KK feud and when they finally get near Taylor Swift the only thing they say is " beautiful couple"? The only explanation is these are "friendly" paps called by Taylor. You know, the ones that accepted the deal " you publish what I want and when I want it and you get some exclusives".
>>202 Budget boyfriend. Ha!
Jake G wasn't budget though. He was my Hollywood fav back then and I recall being horrified when they dated. He went from hero to zero too.
>>203 I hope our flimsy foil temple can withstand a full house
According to tumblr both her jets have moved- one to Nashville and the other towards RI via Dallas.
Not sure where this comment was lifted from.
'The Gossip Life has learned a B-list thesp has landed a role and it is going to cause great upset with the movie-loving community. The shitstorm will be glorious. Get the popcorn.
>>208 If it's going to cause "great upset" I'd go with Idris over Tom. A lot of people will unfortunately be incensed at the idea of a black actor playing Bond.
>>207 The first link is just bringing me to a general Twitter page, not a specific tweet. What did it say?
I can't copy the text- hopefully this works
>>211 Thanks, that worked. It came from an anon at a tumblr blog who says she works for Marvel in California. I saw a couple of the posts but there's no way to know if she's legit or not... though I do have to say, based on TS's track record it wouldn't surprise me if it at least the part about her showing up unannounced were true.
>>206 All the jets in the air - NOW!! Let's break this down:
Worst Case: They're heading back to Oz via Europe. Stops in London, Paris, Venice and all romantic places.
>>212 It's a bit random and sophisticated for a fangirl fib which is why I'm giving it some credence. It's well within TS's m.o. to plane stalk unannounced in the middle of the night and I wouldn't put it past Marvel and his agents to give TH a good grilling over the relationship.
There's no denying TH was in on that pap stroll though. They had to go out with an organised, well documented yet organic blast since it seems they're going their separate ways for the time being. #soauthentic
>>207 She got another pic from 7.25 with Chris Hemsworth. Hmmmm?
Captcha: fouck - No kidding.
>>214 Pirate Fairy ll?
>>213 Worst case would be intolerably hilarious so I'm holding hope for this one
It seems most likely the best case is in action given the solo fan sighting today and all planes in the air. I'm not holding out hope for TS staying away till the Emmys though. She'll fly her well documented stalker arse to Oz just you wait
>>214 She did say Marvel elsewhere. It's on the blog sugarteachatter.
>>219 One beard comment after another. Brutal.
Where and when was TS spotted alone today after dinner last night? Does anyone have quick indie or a link? Thanks!
From another gossip site:
'I have a friend who works with a certain someone. Well, it seems things are going as planned for her recent bf. When her people contacted his people about this "relationship" he only agreed as long as it brought him more exposure and as long as he doesn't catch feelings for her like her ex. Twitter anyone? Tbh, he really is gunning for that role because he doesn't want to be typecasted as a superhero, especially since the man of iron is bank rolling. Sometimes celebs have to reach a certain fan base to garner more attention to their star quality which means getting more roles. Happens all the time, some of your faves have done it and actually got married. He is famous and has a growing fan base but really wants to be an A-lister, so why not get with her when she comes with a package deal? The last magazine spread he did was a fail. He knows it, his team knows it, and she knows it. So, the next thing is to do something more grander to try and "convince" her fans, not us, that they're a couple and hopefully get him more press. Oh, and that magazine spread was at the behest of her team, not his. If this isn't working for him his next go to is J. Belfort's wife (actress).
>>222 Are they referring to the W Mag spread? Because that was a group shoot, TNM-related and done months before he even attended the Met Gala.
>>221 Tay at the gym thismorning and >>207 Tom on his own.
'According to new reports (Page Six), Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift were in Los Angeles this past week to meet with James Bond producers about securing the role. Even though there were earlier reports indicating that Tom Hiddleston’s relationship with Taylor Swift and all of her personal drama might have lost him the role, it looks like the ‘Wildest Dreams’ singer is pulling a few string to make her boyfriend’s dreams happen.'
>>224 I do not for one second believe Taylor Swift has ANY sway over the Bond producers.
>>224 Um, what Hollywood connections? This is the biggest load of crap. B Broc would eat TS up and shit blonde, silicone chunks for the next two days.
>>222 My problem with this is the second sentence: things are going as planned? What would 'things are not going to plan' look like?
>>224 I went to the Page 6 article. CDL are being very creative with the original.
From Page 6: "Tom Hiddleston is in LA with Taylor Swift, and the talk is that he could be meeting with James Bond producers about the iconic role."
>>194 He is not that naive. Only his fangirls at CB can still believe that poor TH is an innocent victim of events. That his pure heart fell for what he thought was a nice girl and now that the truth is out he is in a pickle and doesn't know how to solve the situation. It doesn't matter that he keep going along with papstrolls, he does it because he is too courteous and nice. No blame should be attached to his name. Yuck.
>>211 This I can totally believe, I don't even think it's just Marvel who grilled him. I think with the Emmy nom and the bubble of favour of SDCC TH thought everything was fine in Hollywood, if not back home. But his meeting with his agent in LA probably didn't go so well and it would explain the mysterious trip to NY.
This is the article+video by E! abut dinner night, I don't think it was posted
>>231 Btw, I'm also finding strange that even if he is not required on set he is in LA and not in OZ, not exactly around the corner.
This is funny, TS crab walking out of the gym
What is the English noun for the horses walk when the steps are made with the legs from the same side? It is called "buiestru" in Romanian. I knew she had a "horse mouth", now I see she even walks like one.
>>235 Amble? Or lateral ambling gait I think. Maybe some native will confirm for us. But I get what you mean and now i want to see TH having to do the same!
So, someone sent a blind item to TOD, I'm posting the links related to it so far (tbh I hate this kind of stuff, if you have something to say say it, if you can't because of your job don't say anything)
>>238 I hate these, I think that someone's bored and looking to stir the pot on a long Friday afternoon.
Here's what we do know: TS's plane flew to RI yesterday; the presumption is that she went w/o TH and is throwing a party for newly married Ed Sheeran, or, a birthday party for her bff Karlie.
continuing with TS
So....TODDY's board is heating up right now - go read. Now the guess is leaning towards the Bond announcement being imminent and fallout from it.
If there was going to be a Bond announcement involving TH, his ass would be in London. The last time they announced, there was hoopla with Craig coming down the Thames on a speedboat...and life jacket, for which he was mocked.
>>240 I think both of those people are somewhere other than RI. The last I saw of KK, she was in Italy - wearing a D&G skirt that I instantly wanted (sold out, of course). And Ed is in the UK at the moment, I think. But then celebs fly around continents like you and I go to the bathroom.
>>246 If they were to announce the next James Bond in London today, how would Tom react?
I imagine it like this: they're at the beach in Rhode Island. THE beach, with the infamous pile of rocks. Taylor is driving a speedboat. All 12 of her bodyguards have to be surrounding her at all times, so there's no room for Tom. He is being pulled behind the boat in a swan floaty leftover from Taylor's romantic pool photoshoot with Calvin Harris. Taylor's professional photographer is chasing along, snapping "candids" that will be posted in an obviously planned manner at a later date by her Squad. Instead of a life jacket, Tom is wearing the iconic I <3 T.S. tank. Mumbling to himself, "The name's Bond. James Swift. I mean Bond! James Bond! Bloody hell." He is sunburnt. He is crying.
>>248 Well it would be close:
>>245 I'm 99% sure JA's bd is in May. It's pretty much one of the few personal infos of her I remember.
>>246 I agree with you. I think the anon's implication, in reading through the posts, was that he did not get the role - Idris did - and with that bad news he was going to break off things with TS.
Magic 8 ball captcha says 'yess'
Are they seriously rehashing the Bond rumor? I can't be the only one thinking Tom Hiddleston as Bond would be considered the prank of the century. Nobody is going to believe him as Bond after his lame staged strolls with Taylor.
I wish they would cast a new Bond and announce it already or if Daniel Craig is still up for it then announce that. These "Taylor Swift is helping Tom Hiddleston get Bond" headlines are getting ridiculous. If she had that much clout, she'd have been able to transition into actress easily but she's always rejected when she auditions for good parts.
>>253 I realized last week I'd seen her in two roles without knowing it was her (an episode of CSI - the Las Vegas one, and the movie 'The Giver').
What roles has she tried out for and didn't get ?
>>254 She auditioned for the role of Eponine in the Les Miserables movie. This was when the Eddie Redmayne dating rumors popped up, as he was already attached to the project and she was angling for the part. He and his team quickly shot the story down.
Yes, she's been looking for a British actor for some time. After Redmayne she also tried (very hard) to seduce Douglas Booth but he wasn't interested. By the way, his publicist is Luke Windsor (yes, Tom's publicist).
And right after that (in 2014) she started following Tom Hiddleston on Twitter but he never followed her back (he only did it 2016).
The Swifties are all tittering about an engagement party at RI. And someone anoned The Opinion Dominion that Taylor's jet is on the move but it's not at RI like the Swifties keep saying: http://theopdo.tumblr.com/post/148168775069/hi-former-swiftie-here-i-messaged-sugar-tea There's talk about some dinner reservation at RI too but nothing concrete.
N898TS went to Rhode Island, that's been confirmed on TOD by non-crazy people. I think she (I'm going to assume Former Swiftie is female) was just saying that the second jet didn't move at all. The crazies were saying both jets went to Rhode Island, but only one of them did.
>>260 I noticed it it's not all Swifties. It's just these two girls who are spreading speculation as fact that Tom and Taylor are engaged and throwing an engagement party. I don't even get how anyone can get engaged after a month of dating. On other boards now is when someone would crawl out with a story about how their dad or mom or some distant relative dated for two days and then got engaged and was married by the end of the week and that when they're the one you just know.
>>261 Yeah, two girls, late 20s/early 30s, sisters. That's who I mean when I say "the crazies." I assume Crazy is their last name.
>>262 What??? That's their age?! I thought they were teenagers! Wow. Taylor's fans are all indeed in their teens. Some of them are mentally stuck there much like herself.
>>263 I know, I was shocked too. They're both married, and the older one has three children.
>>261 Yes, I read about Matt. When did they sneak that relationship in?
>>265 oh god...what?? That is really depressing and embarrassing. Most of her fans regardless of age all have the same mentality. I saw that they're harassing the girl who wrote the letter in Seventeen about being a disappointed Taylor fan.
>>265 It was pre-Calvin. I think she wanted him as her bf but he bailed before she could start their pap strolls. Then of course she found Calvin. The song Matt supposedly wrote inspired by her is pretty unflattering. It's like another guy comes out from her life who gave his true opinion about how she is and got attacked and was forced to retract. But he got the song in lol
>>268 I read the lyrics. Pretty obvious.
Where are we right now with locations? She's in RI and he's in LA, correct?
>>269 Probably. I'm trying to periodically check in on twitter and see if he's been spotted anywhere, but it's kind of difficult to wade through the mess that his tag has become.
This is what I had to search in order to weed out most of the nonsense:
>>271 Hollywood Life is such a joke. I should send them my internet-famous screencaps proving Tom is staying at the Four Seasons again.
>>272 Don't hold back Anonsy.
I realised yesterday that my crush has completely atrophied and all that remains is my childish obsession with super sleuthing. I am a frustrated detective and this 'Where's Wally' gives me great joy.
>>273 I'm here to watch the fallout. First he was the laughingstock now her image is under fire in a way she's never experienced before. I want to see just how far these two are willing to go to continue acting like their careers and images taking these hits don't matter and it's all about their fairytale romance.
So what does this mean?
Okay I just went and looked for myself on planefinder. There is no way that plane stopped in Dallas and then continued on to Rhode Island. I don't know where it landed, as I wasn't watching it, but there is only one flight logged. Even if a plane stops only to refuel, it's logged as a separate flight.
>>276 I'm reactivating my parachute theory; the plane hovered over Dallas while the lovers escaped 'under the radar'.
Honestly, I think the Dallas rumor originated from batshit insane Swifties who also reported the second plane had flown to Nashville (which is odd considering it supposedly docks in Nashville, so It flew to itself).
>>276 It's those older Swifties. They're starting rumors. They are the ones that said Taylor's plane went to Nashville then NYC the Nashville before it flew to LA, and anonsy confirmed the plane never went to NYC to follow Tom. New York they threw in to show Tom and Taylor can't be away from one another. I don't know why they're throwing Dallas in the mix this time. Does someone really close to Taylor live there? Then they'd use that to support their engagement party speculation that of course all of her close friends and family are there to meet Tom's family.
>>278 I don't think the F-900 can fly all the way from California to Rhode Island without stopping to refuel, but I'm not sure. If that's the case, they may have seen the plane land in Dallas and then added on the Rhode Island trip because it fit their narrative, like how the plane landed in Nashville last week but they decided it also made a trip to NYC after that.
>>273,274 Ditto, the sleuthing, the prediction game, the curiosity to see how it goes and reading everyone's comments here. My dislike for this guy is absolute, so I'm now hoping something major will happen in the next 2 weeks and I can go on holiday without having to wonder what's going on.
Little update about TOD's blind item
TS and friends are in RI:
https://twitter . com/cgall224/status/759450558197559296
No word on Tom being there or not. Was that fan pic of him at the hotel taken after her jet left?
>>282 He is most likely right there with her. We'll get those sightings soon enough.
I'm not even sure if that fan pic was recent because she was posting all these celeb selfies around the same time.
>>283 I don't know, girl is obviously up on her celebrity gossip. I feel like she might have mentioned Tom if he was there.
If he is there, that must be why she invited friends to come too. Otherwise Tom would have had to stay at a hotel since he apparently can't stand being in a house alone with her.
>>284 He's probably there at Rhode Island with her. Maybe not out sunbathing with her gfs. She could be throwing Karlie Kloss a weekend birthday bash or something. Are we ready for some more loved up Tom and Tay IG pics?
>>285 If he's there, we'll get pics I'm sure. Maybe they'll revisit the Pile of Rocks.
But for the love of God, isn't he supposed to be filming a movie?
(And that's of course if this sighting is even real, and not a joke. A funny joke, but a joke nonetheless.)
>>286 What filming? His girlfriend Taylor Swift is going through a difficult time. He has obviously dropped everything to be by her side and hold her hand through it all. I'm sure Marvel understands that Taylor can't control her emotional responses and is a real human being with emotions lol
Ouch again! I've said "ouch" so many times about Tom in the past six weeks...
>>290 Looks like ithe blind item is something to do with that Tiny PhD Girl story.
>>291 What could the blind about her be? That he had a girlfriend when he hooked it up with T Swift?
HL desperately want everyone to believe they are still holed up in LA binge watching TV despite all arrows pointing to RI.
>>293 I don't see what the issue is. She can watch Girls in her mansion with her cats while Tom watches Kubrick in his suite at the Four Seasons Hotel. Problem solved.
Why would anyone care what they argue about? How banal...
I've discovered one of the reasons for the latest date night pap stroll. A few days ago, someone on tumblr mentioned Tom followed J Brand Jeans. It's his most recent follow. Well, they just retweeted this Swiftie's vomit-worthy tweet.
>>296 I knew that was coming- he's worn those jeans harder than Chinese algebra.
Surely there's a Nike endorsement in the works too, although it appears brands are only willing to endorse his appearances with his +1, poor lad.
>>296 Whoops you're internet famous again- you set Firenbrenie off on an epic twitter rant to JBrand
>>298 Oh my. As much as I'd love to take credit for a Firenbrenie rant, I did see her lurking around in his Twitter tag earlier today.
Wait... no I just looked at her tweets, I'm pretty sure you're right and she saw my post. LOL.
>>299 Take a bow, you're entirely responsible for this rant and it's a good one.
Apparently, TS's mother was definitely spotted in Rhode Island at her house on Instagram! On top of that, that twitter girl says she spotted TS and her friends from her boat, on the beach, although she did not take photos (no mention of TH.) Some are speculating that if mother Swift is in Rhode Island, then TH is not.
>>291 pfft, fake all the way. Now I have even lost interest in the blind item. I suppose they are asking for info to get the dates right for the story so the fanfiction would be more credible.
Yesterday I remembered that in Thor2 the total Loki time was 20 minutes and it took 3 months to TH to film that.
It's suspicious that he is not even around set and possibly indicative of:
>>303 I think a) is your strongest point. He has free time and he's chosen to spend it with TS (and his lawyers/ pr/ agents).
I'm ruling out b) since nobody ever was given time off set to job hunt.
Option c) is probable insofar as she would have been a righteous pain in the arse to come home to during the KK dramas.
>>304 point b) I didn't mean he was given time off to job hunt, but that since he has time off and nothing lined up he is using it to job hunt. He did visit his agent and such in NY and LA.
>>305 Aha, that makes more sense. That's really the only logical explanation for his short NY trip. Who knows whether it was damage control for his relationship or a desperate plea for future work.
The LA agent visit did not look friendly and prompted an unusual flurry of tweets. Perhaps they told him to lift his game with his fans to secure a job that's in the pipeline.
This article is LOL and Ouch at the same time.
'And sometimes u have dinner next to @taylorswift13 &Tom H. And you just gotta acknowledge its awesome, send good vibes and let them be #LA'
>>309 This one says she was in Los Angeles but since she's being all philosophical about it she could actually be talking about their dinner date from a couple days ago. Her tweet was in the middle of the night.
The tweet was from 8 hours ago. >>310 Yeah, unless she saw them eating at 2AM LA time, she's gotta be talking about the last dinner date. Or maybe earlier last night and she tweeted later?
TOD has printed that she's received "indisputable info" that tiny PhD girl exists http://theopdo.tumblr.com/post/148251787564/more-we-know-about-who-taylor-has-dated-and-we
Basically she has links to tiny PhD girl's social media accounts. Now those accounts must obviously be public otherwise how can she say for sure she believes the two had a relationship until June 2016? The accounts must have some pics of them together or something but if they did, wouldn't his fans have found them by now? I really hope she's not going off of some tweet at Tom as her proof that these two dated. My personal belief is that the girl is real but the info on her being someone Tom dated is probably made up. TOD says she'll tell all her info on tiny PhD girl and relationship with TH in private so anyone with a tumblr willing to message her for info?
Looks like that tweet from last night was recent http://theopdo.tumblr.com/post/148254077879/seems-like-the-swifties-hoping-for-a-secret
So they are still in LA and still going strong. No breakup yet. Will we pap shots of them leaving the restaurant later during the day or tomm? Most likely.
>>312 Ha! What a crappy post. Truly I'm whatever about this guy, but this PhD girl is ridiculous. He was on another bloody continent from January until May. And before that from Oct to half of Dec. How the fuck could he have be together with anyone?
>>313 Good. I needed a laugh and the idea of 2 bodyguards waiting at the bar to accompany her at the bathroom is hilarious. Do they accompany TH as well?
>>313 here's a photo by someone at the restaurant
>>313 If that sighting is real (we'll know soon enough I'm sure), at least one of their publicists told them to act romantic in the restaurant in case someone took a photo. If this is going to be believable, the fan sightings have to match the paparazzi photos and the comments from "sources." The "romantic" stories of the last date night sounded so stupid after that fan pic of them not even sitting across from each other.
>>317 Using a resume of his love life to give credit to their phd girl fiction makes it fishy, getting so many details wrong makes it silly.
Links and pictures? Of what? What pictures? TH having sex with this girl? Kissing her via Skype? Links to what?
>>314 It's so clear that these are all new fans. These tea blog ones and the anons commenting on them. I'm guessing they joined the fandom later otherwise the rest of us who've been around since his Thor or Avenger days immediately know which relationships out of that list were real and the actual timelines to go with them. Like the Susannah-Kat D one, people always assume that Tom and SF started dating according to when she first appeared on Wallander but didn't pics of her and Tom together, the non red carpet ones, come out all after his fling with Kat D?
>>319 TOD keeps saying "the girl is real" and she also said she has links to her social media accounts. Sounds like there is absolutely no proof of her and Tom together but just proof of there being an Italian woman who's doing her PhD in UK. We all know Tom has tons of intellectual/ cerebral fans so whoever is making up this fairytale found their idea of Tom's ideal woman following him on Twitter and spun a story around it. Wouldn't be the first time a TH fan made up a story about him hooking up with a random woman that turned out to be completely. There was that whole Michelle debacle on TOBY during the CP shoot in Toronto. Despite her social media and everything, that all turned out to be made up and fake as hell.
Captcha says "love" (presumably ironically).
All this tiny PhD bullshit. It is acquiring a spurious legitimacy by spreading it to a second blog, I am guessing supposedly via a "separate" source. Oldest trick in the book.
>>322 Tiny PhD Girlfriend is the only thing that looks more fake than Hiddleswift.
>>323 Theoanons got convinced by her - enough to suddenly shut down her blog. I thought that was bizarre. She didn't seem the type to be fooled. But it just shows how convincing these catfishers are.
Looks like TOD is about to do her own exclusive on tiny PhD girl http://theopdo.tumblr.com/post/148260043149/more-i-have-sought-out-the-permission-of-my
I still don't buy it. But I guess TH fans would rather the possibility of their ideal woman as his one true love before bad Taylor came and broke them up with her grand promises of fame.
Strange request. Anon will you open your tumblr up to asks or submits or messages. I think I know who you are on tumblr and I want to message you. Thanks.
Taylor being the sweet girlfriend that she is and getting Tom endorsements twitter(.)com/JBrandJeans/status/759582377442181120
It's no Armani but it's good enough for Taylor Swift's new pet.
>>326 It will be anon - I'm not going to expose myself or you!! Should have mentioned that.
>>326 Should have also said that it's more than fine - of course - if you don't want to.
The plane moved again today. It already landed, though. Some are speculating it is parked at Nashville where it lives.
Yes. One word - cuniculus.
Working off last night's dinner lol http://www.justjared.com/2016/07/31/tom-hiddleston-gets-in-a-weekend-workout-in-weho/
I think we'll see the pap pics from last night in the next few hours or will get a brand new couple's outing. Her defamation case is in August so more pics of the happy couple who's not bothered at all by real life and it's petty quibbles eyeroll
Here is the sad tale of Tiny PhD Girl.
>>335 Same here. It's too detailed for someone to know all this and not be a close confidant of Tom or the woman in question. Which then begs the question why they'd spill the beans on tumblr. Another thing I don't understand is this PhD girl contacted a previous gossip tumblr and I'm assuming it's safe to say that would've been Theoanons. Why would you message a stranger running a tea blog spreading gossip about you and use your personal name email to do so? Wouldn't that just confirm the whole gossip speculation about you and could potentially put you in the same media attention you initially didn't want? And I just checked, she's removed those emails. The censoring is worse than CIA FBI blacked out documents dealing with national security.
>>336 I found her. It wasn't hard. Toddy still left too much information for someone who's good with Google. I don't think this girl was even in London until June. She's tweeted Tom a number of times and liked some of his social media posts but appears to be a fan.
>>337 I found her too. I went through his Twitter and found her. Maybe it's a long con and this person talking to TOD already had their eye on using this girl's info as they were building their story. I found her Facebook too and the posts that TOD was referring to as her proof for there being something between her and Tom sounds more like a disillusioned fan than a heartbroken lover or cheated on gf. Actually tbh one of them is too vague to be said its about Tom and the other looks like it's about Tom if you read it on Twitter but on Facebook she put up the story behind it and it's got zilch to do with Tom.
>>339 The girl I found didn't even go to London until June.
>>339 Someone totally found this girl and wrote a fanfiction based on her social media accounts. This is ridiculous.
This all sounds like Frenchy to me
>>340 You're right. I misunderstood her tweet that's sandwiched in between the seaside one and the Italian poet one. Do you see which tweet I'm talking about? I read it as her returning but you're right, she never got to London until June.
>>341 Yeah but it seems earlier in March and April. She certainly wasn't in London in May which when this whole romance with TH is supposed to have gone down. Where was Tom in March and April? Wasn't he promoting TNM for US?
>>345 He wasn't there any of the times she was there, or even the times she may have been there. This is all BS and people are eating it up because they're pissed at Tom.
>>346 Yep. Sigh. Back to watching the TayTo circus.
>>347 The last two blogs I was keeping an eye on that hadn't devolved into complete insanity or converted into Sebastian Stan blogs are now inundated with anons talking about what a horrible person Tom is because of what he did to Tiny PhD Girl. Why can't we just stick to criticizing Tom for terrible and/or stupid things he's actually done?
So, there are no photos of both TH and TS at The Church Key restaurant, no pap walk. The mainstream media never even talked about that date nght. But there is a pic of TH at the Fitness Factory gym today, alone. Was the pic of TS at the restaurant and the story from the actress about their romantic behavior a plant? Does the gym pic mean that TH is taking his identity back? What is this game they're playing? Are they a couple after all? Any thoughts?
>>349 The "story from a closed group" was fishy to me. The leg running under the table (which she wouldn't have been able to see based on her photo), the overhearing of so many conversation details in a loud, crowded restaurant... either the poster embellished for dramatic effect, or Taylor was making a big show of everything she was doing in hopes that someone would blab on social media about how "genuine" and "loved up" they were. Probably to make up for the photo of them in the last restaurant looking not at all into each other. That is assuming the woman who took the photo was being truthful, which I have my doubts about.
>>337,339 I'm glad you two found her so at least someone here got the chance to see the evidence when someone else here will say that they know it's real.
That being said it sounds so ridiculous. As someone who saw Missthing and beanup happen in real time, this phd girl sounds is very LOL. I don't even get why people are so fixated on it, if true is pathetic, it just proves even more how much of a manipulative, famewhore wimp TH is.
>>343 Nah, first Frenchy wouldn't have kept it quiet, at all! Second Frenchy's bd is in September.
I swear we might have reached a point where there are more gossip tumblr blogs than fan, do you guys know of this one?
>>348 Right? But I think the reason some of them are losing it over this PhD story is because now they can't dump the entirety of the blame on Taylor for being tempting poor naive Tom into her trap. No more excuses of "well he was just blinded by his need for fame and he's had three flops in a row" blah blah, all apologist excuses. Or like you said, it's just giving the pissed off fans even more riled up and angry, and they're all dying to see him suffer now. Both him and Taylor lol
>>353 I think you're right. Haven't really been following the last few days because I kind of feel sick of it all. This relationship sham isn't ending any time soon and the cycle of planted articles followed by pap strolls has become incredibly tiresome.
"A-listers Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchett and Taylor Swift’s beau Tom Hiddleston have been in the city as filming continues."
"Workers at Gold Coast’s Village Roadshow Studios fume at cuts from Thor: Ragnarok starring Chris Hemsworth"
"The cuts fuelled rumours the production would use more computer-generated backgrounds rather than real sets."
>>354 I think Marvel does pay for transportation of their actors and a plus one, which would explain why they flew commercial on their way to OZ. This also tells me that when they flew to SDCC in a private jet TS paid for it. And it also tells me that TS probably didn't like the houses Marvel made available for its actors and that's why TayTo stayed at a hotel.
This is what I hate the most about this spilling tea, they do the deed but then they don't want to deal with the consequences.
I haven't seen much chatter about theopdo's story - any really outside the anons she has published. Maybe I am following the wrong (or right!) tumblrs.
When, oh when, is he to return to Australia? This is the most leisurely shooting schedule ever. Either it is way behind and is going to go hugely over budget like Heaven's Gate; or TH has a minuscule part. If he is filming from now(ish) till end October he could still have a reasonably substantial part I suppose.
>>360 I think never. He's just going to skype his part in. Or they'll make a cgi Loki in the same way they de-bulged him in the first movie. Maybe it will be voice work only and Loki will always be speaking off camera randomly in another room: 'Why is loki always in the kitchen or bathroom?' They'll explain it away by saying Loki has IBS. 😰💩 That's Loki sweating because he needs to take a poo.
>>357 I'd fume too. I'm sure members of the govt might be fuming with all the tax breaks and incentives that were given to the production. I know we talked about this last year when news of filming in Oz broke. The boat had been pushed out to get the production to film there.
>>361 I suppose we should have known because Thor 2 ended with him sitting in the throne.
>>362 Yeah they did, actually I seem to remember the money given to marvel was cut from fund destined to a book council or art department.
The person behind TNS Twitter account is crazy but this is actually funny:
Luke Windsor started following publicist Gary Mantoosh. Do you think he's Tom's new publicist in the US?
>>367 I think Gary and Luke met at SDCC and networked. I don't think he is Tom's US publicist. He could be but I don't think BWR has signed up Tom...
TS was also in LA yesterday, here are her photos from the gym
>>370 Kind of pathetic that it's noteworthy whenever they go places "separately."
>>369 Yes it is, gym and dinner, dinner and gym. But it's not like there's much about him to talk about is there?
>>350 I enlarged the pic of the Church Key dinner outing, and that is not TS.
>>373 Really? It looks like her...a lot. I do believe the story and it's embellishments were a plant though. Deliberately done so that it looks "realistic" because no one is buying their papped date nights.
They're trying to inject realism now but the whole thing is past its sell by date. No one is going to believe anything now.
>>377 That was the first thing I noticed too. That's why she's not hiding her face this time. She only hides her face from the paps when she's not wearing makeup.
A little amuse-bouche (or purgative, depending on one's perspective): http://hollywoodlife.com/2016/08/01/taylor-swift-music-tom-hiddleston-new-songs-relationship/
Somehow I doubt that Gossip Cop will rush into print to rubbish this one, irrespective of the disparaging views that they have expressed of HL.
'the actor who plays Loki has a mom who is very excited to become a grandmother one day — and she wouldn’t mind if her grandkids came from Taylor.'
I just read on tumblr that the man with the beard at the table in the foreground of the photo with Taylor at Church Key is Mark Romanek, who directed Shake It Off. I compared photos and I think it is him.
Wouldn't it be interesting if their one non-papped "please, no photos" dinner was with a music video director? Is it time to whip out the tin foil again?
>>382 Or, alternative theory, the story was a plant and Tom wasn't even there.
TODDY has deleted her blog. Again.
More gym pics from today on Torrilla's weibo.
In case anyone is wondering, the gym Tom has been attending is the Fitness Factory on La Peer Drive in West Hollywood. It's a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk from the Four Seasons.
>>387 Damn we can't see which car he's coming and going to the gym in. If it's her mom's SUV or a rental. Taylor is back to hiding her face again.
Wasn't he an Empire favorite? This time they didn't even bother mentioning him. Not by his real name or Taylor Swift's new pet/ beau/ boyfriend/ willing sacrifice.
>>388 If I was a famous person who was going to be papped going to the gym, I'd make sure any blemishes were covered. That's it. If I had problem skin I'd maybe wear foundation. This whole full face of makeup with contouring and pink lipstick to go work out is just too much.
I don't think I've seen this here: https://www.buzzfeed.com/elliewoodward/something-weird-is-going-on-with-hiddleswift-since-the-kimye?bftw&utm_term=.ulA8rQXzW#.bhD8JED50
>>392 And now add this tabloid cover to the mix http://www.lipstickalley.com/showthread.php/1053826-Tom-Hiddleston-Thread-Part-9?p=27535597&viewfull=1#post27535597
We'll probably be seeing more tabloid headlines of Tom using Taylor for money. They'd been hinting at this ending for this narrative from the Rome. He's gonna end up as the guy who steals your woman and then uses her funds for himself. My god, he's Thomas Sharpe but without the incest and murder.
>>393 '...but without the incest and murder.' Small blessings in this mess.
EO's next project. Give it a read...interesting intersection.
>>396 Everyone keeps saying that like it's a good thing...
>>398 Ah the themes of public image versus reality. Maybe EO will give Tom a call to ask if she can talk to him and Taylor Swift about the circus of celebrity and the skewed picture it presents and how that affects their day to day reality.
A miracle! He is leaving via LAX (se Torrilla) and he appears to be A.L.O.N.E.
>>401 Don't get too excited, there's no way his wardrobe could fill those enormous suitcases, she's obviously hiding in one of them
Oh look, the humble attitude is back, he is pushing his own suitcases and he is not flying on a private jet! This can only mean the flight is paid by Marvel. So he is probably alone. No way TS flies with the common people again! But she might join him later on.
"Is Hiddleswift on the rocks? Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston appear to cool public romance"
>>404 Some of that article is so bad. It says that the pics of their steakhouse date emerged nearly a week after the steakhouse date. That was last Wednesday and we saw the pics soon after. they haven't just emerged the last day or so.
>>401 I bet they had a really heartfelt good-bye. They probably read each other poetry, gazed into one another's eyes, took some selfies, discussed Descartes (her pronunciation: Des-car-tays) and summoned the paps to a nearby Chili's but then didn't show up...those pranksters!
>>405 I didn't read the article but 28 times. Really? I'd like a breakdown of obviously professional pap shots from someone who knows. Can we think of even one 'rogue' pap shot? Or of one where they're not holding hands?
>>407 That number comes from an unacknowledged underlying buzzfeed article and I have a feeling it includes one or two miscounts (for example them arriving at the romantic beach - red hairband day - and them being photographed strolling on that beach, which I'd call one, no two). I might do a little analysis when i can be bothered.
This is from The Nerdist. TH and GDT did this panel last year...so long ago. Pre-THEO, Pre-Tayto.
They're talking about Sherlock and who might play Sherlock's brother:
>>407 the number of times mentioned is why I posted it. Even if wrong by a few, organizing so many papstrolls in such a short time plus the random pap photos is really something.
>>402 I think she made him carry an extra empty suitcase just so they could write headlines like this:
"Is It Over? Tom Hiddleston Leaves Taylor Swift's L.A. Home With Several Packed Bags — See His Sad Pics"
>>413 I am just getting a link to the front page. Can't find the article! Can you repost? I am dying to read this one as it sounds hilarious!
>>412 I've read a few of Paglia's books. She's a fierce feminist, often traveling far beyond my own feminist borders. But like all philosophers - and I do consider her such - she has a way of finding that nugget of truth hidden beneath society's overly-manufactured dung heap. Her writings on Princess Diana were eye-opening for me.
>>414 You need to scroll through the pics. The 'article' is really just the captions under the photos - it is Star mag!!
>>416 I can't even see the pic n the front page though! Maybe it's because I'm on mobile.
>>419 Still not working. Maybe it's only for US readers.
I saw a very disturbing tweet of someone menacing Tom.
People are reporting it:
>>415 I remember her Diana writings,Anon. I just found a Salon article on the day of Diana's death - http://www.salon.com/1997/08/31/paglia_15/ - referring to her New Republic article about the Princess, which I can't find online. It was very interesting- I think it was one of the first times that I read about a broad narrative being played out regarding a person's very public private life (if that makes sense).
>>421 This is the second time this week someone has tweeted that level of vitriol toward him / his family. The first one resulted in their account being pulled.
>>421 They were threatening Tom before TayTo ever happened. Wow. I went ahead and reported them.
Here are the captions beneath the pics which are just those from other sites:
Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift went overboard debuting their new relationship in the first three weeks — 24 times in front of the cameras — but in the last two weeks, it's been rare to see the pair together. Tom was spotted leaving LAX airport with several packed bags on August 1 after his stay with Taylor at her L.A. residence. During his recent trips, he's taken his 26-year-old girlfriend with him, so him traveling alone this time may cause fans to raise their eyebrows since she's not on tour anymore. Some reports began to surface that the pair have already broken up — despite rushing into things too fast, like meeting each other's parents that first month together. The breakup shocker would come right on the heels of Tom trying to get in with the brand Armani — right after Taylor's ex, Calvin Harris, quit working with the brand — but an insider told The Telegraph that Armani doesn't want their brand name connected to his relationship with Taylor. "Obviously with Tom now being Taylor's other half and the Calvin past deal, it would generate huge media coverage and headlines. But Armani see themselves as classier than that and think that a rising sports start may suit their current needs better," a source told the publication. "Armani would hate to be seen as getting PR for their brand by riding on Taylor Swift's coat tails, so Tom will not get the job," added the insider. Their whirlwind romance coming to an end would especially be bad timing for Taylor, who's suffered a load of heat for Kanye West and Kim Kardashian exposing a phone call that caught the pop star in a lie.
Sorry, that last one was me, forgetting to add my name.
>>425 Thank you! I wanted actual pictures of Tom slinking away from Pussycat Towers, possibly holding a laundry bag containing his one spare pair of pants. Sadly it sounds like it was the airport pics again.
I have no life so I made this list. These are all the sightings. All involve both TH and TS and all were pap encounters unless it says otherwise (where I say "candid" I mean taken by a fan on a cameraphone).
I mined the data; others can analyse. I think, though I haven't counted very precisely, that there were maybe 21 or 22 pap encounters with both of them before KK dropped her bombshell. Afterwards, 2: arriving in LA and at the steakhouse.
>>429 I had forgotten half of these. My brain likely trying to protect itself. Boy, KK really threw cold water on that publicity fire, didn't she?
KK's bombshell was after the dungaree shopping evening. 16 July. They had started to cool down a bit on the pap strolls by then, but the radio silence afterwards is very noticeable.
TS just posted an Instagram Story (that's a thing now, I guess) of her cat from her Nashville house. These stories can only be posted live, which means TS is in Nashville. She must have either been on the plane when it flew on July 31, which means the fishy Church Key restaurant sighting was indeed bogus, or she's got some other new sneaky transportation method.
>>433 There is also a report from twitter that TS spent yesterday hanging out with Gigi Hadid, so it looks like she traveled from Los Angeles to Nashville some time in the past 24 hours.
And, by the way, I only know the video was taken in Nashville because the tumblr Swifties have the interiors of her houses memorized and were able to ID it immediately.
I take it back, I think TS flew to Nashville in her jet on the 31st. I messed up because I had my dates wrong, plus the sighting of Taylor visiting Gigi Hadid yesterday is very unreliable.
July 30: Church Key dinner, TS pictured with other friends, Tom allegedly there too.
>>435 The Gigi pics look old because Taylor's hair looks too light there. It looks like her old bleached hair and it's not like that anymore. And now we have outright lies in tabloids starting up that are yet again all about Taylor being a victim twitter(.)com/TomTheNextLevel/status/760515263771054080
And there is the Star caption of the breakup that went along with Tom's LAX pics.
>>435 I tend to agree with NewAnon that her hair looks to bleached to be recent. But even if those photos aren't misdated they don't really disrupt your timeline. She could have met with Gigi Hadid on the 1st, left for Nashville in the evening/night and make that video of her cat on the 2nd.
>>436 I can't remember. But like you said, we'll see from her PR what is about to happen.
>>436 "Her friends are ghosting him" ...what? Did he ever actually follow any of the people listed?
>>440 I don't think he ever followed any of them, but they allegedly followed and then unfollowed him because he's such a bad boyfriend. Or something.
>>442 My Twitter says this was posted 6.30am GMT on 2 August. What time was that in LA? Either this was an "I am watching him on DVD too" or there was a meeting earlier in the day.
TH has arrived in Brisbane! FYI, TS's plane was only in the air for at most three hours on the day that it flew. I saw that. So if TS in Nashville, she charted a private plane and left from a smaller airport.
>>444 Thanks. It's just difficult for me to accept the idea that a woman who already owns two jets would charter a third one for seemingly no reason. Nothing about her makes sense to me.
More importantly, hooray for Tom in Brisbane!
What on earth does he have in his backpack in addition to those 2 huge pieces of luggage? It is positively bulging. PS it wasn't a change of clothes for the flight!
>>446 Already he's smiling and laughing. Such a difference in demeanors.
The Swifties are starting to claim all that luggage is Taylor's and Tom brought it ahead of time so she wouldn't have to. I mean I don't even...sigh. Whatever lol
>>446 I suppose this is the same guy he hugged when he landed in Brisbane the first time.
That seems a lot of luggage for someone who wore the same outfit for most of his staying SD and LA.
>>449 I wonder if he went to the personal shopper in LA and bought some new clothes to avoid being mocked.
>>450 That makes sense, of course he will also need the occasion to sport his new clothes.
It could also be that Olly raided his wardrobe in London and brought it to him in LA. At the very least, the amount of luggage means his staying in Oz this time will be longer.
Mark Ruffalo wraps on Thor3
Because contrary to general belief, they were actually filming in Oz.
On a side note, I watched High Rise, I did not like it. Nothing to do with the book. It has a few good moments, though.
>>452 Wow. That really surprises me. I thought the whole movie was meant to be Thor/Hulk bro love. If it was then it was the shortest love affair in history. What kind of dog's dinner is this movie going to be? A load of cameos from known characters and no plot?
>>454 I'm not sure how it works, does Ruffalo have to be on scene all the time for them to create CG Hulk? Because I doubt there'll be much Brenner. I sure hope it won0t be another disjointed plot like Thor2.
Taylor Swift wants everyone to know that Hiddleswift is still going strong http://www.people.com/people/mobile/article/0,,21022092,00.html
Uh huh. Thanks Taylor.
>>456 Funny how they left out the bit where he left for Oz by himself. Normally I'd say this means she is going to join him in Brisbane, but since she also denied leaving Harris for TH...
Of course date night was sponsored. Of course. JBrand jeans and ETRO shirt for Tom twitter(.)com/EtroOfficial/status/760837651813523456
>>457 Lol yeah let's ignore the fact that he just flew off for work to a different continent. The Swifties are freaking out. I'm waiting for them to do a Kickstarter or GoFundMe to get Taylor and Tom permanently attached at the hip so the soulmates can always stay together and nothing will get in the way of true love.
>>458 Seriously, if he dares saying another time how authentik this bloody thing I'll do a prayer circle for a virtual slap.
>>456 It's been said here before: what I dislike most about this situation is the assumption that I'm stupid, have the research skills of an ADHD kitten or have the memory of a goldfish. I don't exist within any part of that Venn diagram, so don't throw out bullshit press releases masquerading as articles/truth.
>>455 I would think he did his GCI / green screen / motion capture thing and is done. They'll probably then do voice work after the GCI stuff.
FYI, www.gossipcom.com just denied that TS wants a proposal from TH before the Emmy awards, and they denied that TH had to fly out LA to console TS because she didn't get nominated for VMAS. TS claims that none of her videos were in contention, and she claims that TH only flew out west for Comic Con. Plus the relationship progressed quickly just because she was free this summer. No mention that TH just left the country w/o her though. Do you think their teams are working together?
>>462 TS is absolutely definitely not pining for a proposal! Riiiiiiight.
>>463 There was an actress whose name I can't recall. She did an interview in which she said that she always had 2-3 rings set aside at Tiffany's for when her boyfriends were ready to propose. She would let this fact slip after a month of dating.
>>462 Her team is now trying to make her look like a strong woman who doesn't need a man or anything and that Tom and Taylor are two independent people despite the drivel they fed us since June ever since Taylor's ex and Kimye drama started. From "Taylor is just so happy with Tom the drama doesn't bother her" to "Tom consoles Taylor over VMA snub" to "Tom tells Taylor to ignore the negativity" and all the Tom helps Taylor overcome something or handle something etc etc.
>>466 Remember when the guy from ET stuck a mic in Tom's face at the end of SDCC and asked him about TS, and LW, behind TH, looked like he was choking back a 'omg stfu' ? I agree with you NewAnon - their PRs have not been working together. I don't think LW was ever on board with the whole thing and backed away for as long as he could (I'd love to know what he actually thinks of TS as a person). Not sure which specific opportunity first withered due to the bad publicity, but I'll be his initial meeting with LW in California had more fireworks than the one with the agents.
>>467 No, I believe Luke was on board from the beginning and trusted Taylor and her team to take care of his image along with hers during this relationship. It's not unusual for a client's publicist to take a more subdued role for a bit for the sake of the client due to one reason or another that's to do with the client's image or branding, or trust another client or studio's publicist because the goals line up. But I don't think Tom or Luke realized just how much they'd get shafted for Taylor's own agenda. They signed up for this circus thinking it'd be a mutually beneficial relationship that will also look good in the media. Except nope, the kids are woefully out of their depth. That's what he gets for all his authenticity.
'Someone call the search party – Hiddleswift is missing.
....meanwhile, as breakup rumors abound, the Swifties tracked Tays jet from Nashville to RI and they naturally assume she attached herself to the plane.
They remain resolute she will reattach herself to TH in an independent and non- clingy manner next week so they can resume having sex twice a week on allocated days and kickstart those wedding and baby plans while she redecorates his bachelor pad. All it needs is a woman's touch.
>>470 Doesn't Elle UK adore TH and have a good relationship with him? Could this possibly be Luke tugging the breakup rumors? That's quite interesting.
>>471 Swifties believe Taylor will attend one of Selena's concerts in Australia, either this weekend or next week. That's gonna be their independent non clingy girlfriend excuse. "She's not there for Tom, she's there to support her friend! It's Tom who adores her and went to go meet her and take her out to dinner in a location that's never visited by paps yet just happened to have a bunch of them waiting outside for them to arrive because Taylor is just so famous okay?"
>>472 It appeared they did, until the interview while he was playing Coriolanus, which amounted to cringeworthy fangirling (but gave us great video and pictures, so there is that).
There's more HL 'she's dying without him by her side!' silliness. http://hollywoodlife.com/2016/08/03/taylor-swift-misses-tom-hiddleston-lonely-time-apart/
In other news, I'm waiting for Taylor and Tom to one-up Katy and Orlando. Naked manservant is hard to top, especially if you're trying to maintain that virginal 14 year old fanbase. James Weir:
It looks like TS is gathering her Squad for some sort of party in either NYC or RI. Her back-up plane has been making the rounds, presumably to pick people up.
>>475 Also I'd just like to say I hate that this is something I have any interest in. I want to smack TH in the face just for that.
>>476 It's most likely KK's bday bash. We never would have known if he weren't for him, even though he doesn't seem to be involved in this party.
Ok magazine has just sent out their first Hiddleston/Swift Trouble in Paradise article! This is b/c TH doesn't want to get engaged to TS, and because he won't consent to be TS's date to her buff Abigail's wedding, so they say. Is this the beginning of the relationship unraveling in the American Press? What do we think? www.okmagazine.com
>>479 Is OK US or UK based? My tabloid IQ is not what it should be.
OK MAGAZINE: okmagazine*com/photos/tom-hiddleston-marriage-taylo-swift-relationship-drama/photo/1001465262/
I think, US. The link won't show up blue for some reason. How do I do that? Blah! : )
>>480 I think it originated in the UK. Seems now to be international, like Hello. I always think of it as a downmarket version of Hello.
though I see the dot com website for OK (as opposed to the dot co dot UK one) redirects to Radar Online and I cannot see any of the articles on Radar's front page. No trouble in paradise article available in the UK :(
>>482 I thought it was UK as well. I think I remember seeing Kerry Katona's face on a cover at a Tesco...when Kerry Katona did something other than plug Iceland's party trays. (Shhhh, their breaded cheese selection tray was lovely!)
It's all captions to pictures again - no new pics, just the usual ones where he's looking miserable.
Here you go:
All I can picture is a toddler stamping their foot, turning red and saying 'I WANT IT AND I WANT IT NOW!!!'
Run for the hills, dude.
I think he actually did like this tweet: http://sugarteachatter.tumblr.com/post/148512385242/woah-what
Burn courtesy of the Guardian:
>>488 Ouchy Burn!
"Cameron’s cultural legacy has been a generation of actors educated at his old school or somewhere similar."
Hiddleston has become a legacy of Cameron, that's gorgeous, thank you The Guardian, you made my day!
>>487 I don't doubt it, I think the idea that TH is oblivious to everything being said and written about him on the internet is a blatant lie.
Luke Windsor isn't following Taylor's publicist on Twitter. I'm 100% sure he was following her until a few days ago.
>>493 according to my Twitter he is still following her. It is a little way down the list.
>>494 Silly me. I was checking the Prosper account.
Anyway, it's getting boring. We need more pap walks or Tom wearing "I heart TS" vests, or Tom naked with a "I DO heart TS" tatooed on his chest. Anything goes...
Tay is in the Hamptons impersonating a poodle singing karaoke with Nellie and partying with the vacuous rich and famous and her bff Karlie.
>>497 In explanation for my gag reflex, I find Tay's hairstyle an insult to follicles and an abomination of modern hairstyling. I say this as a hairstylist; if a client asked me to replicate this and it was not in jest, I would refuse.
Go Tay Tay.
Kiss and grind that stinking rich birthday boy and moving on in 1, 2, 3..
I don't know how I feel about coming home from church to be confronted with such raw sexuality! Taylor is Eva Gardner, Sophia Loren and Marilyn Monroe all in one sexy package. I'm going to need to go to confession tomorrow. The heat is too much.
And while Tay is dancing like an asexual giraffe and singing like a tone deaf hyena. Kim K. is posting videos of her playing with her adorable children. When did the world shift to this axis?
>>498 This seems like a given now. When it exactly became a given we will probably never know. I'd say it was a nanosecond after he put on that T-shirt which was a second after his brain did a CTL-ALT-DEL forced quit and shut down on him. In his defense, I can imagine his brain shut down that weekend in an attempt to protect itself from everything going on around him.
I wonder, not for the first time, how someone so rich can look so terrible. I had a poodle perm like that once but I was ten and it was the late 80s.
>>504 did he ever have a real chance? I wonder. The "I have never had a chance, I was not in the running" story has been pushed so hard recently I am beginning to think he was in serious talks for it.
Another old photo the confirms the boob job:
>>506 Gossip Cop: Our exclusive sources can confirm that Taylor has never had a boob job. In the past we have debunked false stories put forth by clear photographic evidence/people's eyes. This is another case of eyes and photographic evidence spreading false rumors. Taylor loves her body just as it is and so does her boyfriend - who totes didn't lose out on Bond or a modeling contract because of their relationship - Tom Hiddleston (respected thespian and possibly the next James Bond).
>>505 Someone I know kicks around reddit. She mentioned that over on the James Bond reddit there is a source saying TH and Mendes shot a Bond screen test. The test wasn't requested by the Bond people but done by Mendes as a favor to TH. If that source is to be believed - and TH does this test thing, he hired his own make-up professional to shoot a test for The Crow a few years ago - then he was at the very least trying to get noticed by the Bond people.
>>507, oh you've read it then.
>>508 I could believe that. Wasn't it Mendes he was seen with in early May?
Well, the tumblr stans' backlash against TS has commenced. After 6 weeks of trying their hardest to get behind the world's fakest/most unsatisfying celebri relationship, and policing tumblr for anyone who posted anything negative about TayTo and castigating them for not being "real fans", the Berlinale nutbag and her little friends have finally entered meltdown (or reality). After all her bullying of any naysayers she had the absolute nerve to post the following today: "Not everything that I’m learning about her is positive. That doesn’t mean that I’m “turning on her”. It just means that I’m getting a fuller picture."
>>512 Awareness is not this woman's strong suit. After her joke of a question in Berlin - with video proof! - she should have shut up shop. Instead she mindlessly tried to defend herself and hoist the blame onto Hugh Laurie. How anyone can take her and her defense of Tayto seriously is beyond me.
>>514 Hence their need to baby and defend their crush and his less-than-savory actions like a couple of mother hens.
Martha Hunts face when she's asked about TH around the 1minute mark. Frosty.
So much juicy in this article. It's an exit strategy dream.
>>516 Wow, if that's not telling...are they going with the story now that Tom is the bad guy and poo wittle Taylor was deceived?
Btw, has anyone else noticed Scott Eastwood being asked about Taylor and talking her up? Very similar to how Tom was asked about her after MET. It's going to be hilarious if her and Scott start dating in a few weeks and everyone pretends like Tom and her never happened but then she lambasts him while promoting her new album.
>>518 Very telling in light of her previous endorsement of their relationship.
I've set off our favorite twitter stalker waves
>>519 Yeah, he's Clint Eastwood's son and currently promoting Suicide Squad. He starred in Taylor's Wildest Dreams video. Him and Clint did some father son interviews that came out last week and Clint as usual was unable to hide his strong Republican and pro-Trump sentiments lol But the interesting thing was that Scott talked about his agents telling him not to do Taylor's video yet he still did it. The video came out a while ago so him talking about it now in the midst of all her negative press is interesting. In the HuffPo interview he talks about what a great role model Taylor is lol I'm not sure all this is being brought up because of everyone wants to know everyone's thoughts on Taylor and Kanye or because she's got her eyes on Scott Eastwood now. Given his family background, he seems a better fit for Taylor and her republican roots than Tom.
>>520 Aha, well that's as close to royalty as she will ever get- Hollywood royalty. Calling her a rock star eyeroll
Just as things were seemingly getting back to normal, one of the unhinged Twats on Twitter starts up a fake account pretending to be the Sugar Tumblr site and links the site with lifted quotes posting to Luke.
The last time this happened Sugar closed up shop so I can only assume the culprit is either deliberately baiting to censor the blog or she is the stupidest person alive.
>>516,518 That was not just frosty but irritated even. They are totally going for TH is the bad guy.
But on the other hand TH is also playing his usual game: let his partner take all the blame for the PR stunt. Some months ago Anon said that papnight was probably all TH and I objected that given their different reactions that one was probably all EO. I now think that we were both right, but that EO, like JA before her (or even Sian maybe) played along on TH suggestion and when things became public, and not positively received, he acted like he had nothing to do with it to convince his fans he was innocent and walk away squeaky clean, while the women take the fall. Which would explain EO's TIFF statement, or JA sudden deletion of her social networks. He is doing the same with TS. Never mind he said they are happy, together and authentic, he knows that if he is only seen playing the PR game when with her, his fans will blame it on her.
>>522 Thankyou waives again
>>523 TH has always played the game in a passive- aggressive manner, content to let others tumble and fall while remaining silent.
He's going to be asked about this relationship for an eternity once its over and I honestly have to say that even if I have deserted his fandom by then, I will return to watch the slowed down gifs of his squirming and stuttering on repeat.
Never one to read CB, thank to you all I've now begun to enjoy favorite commenters on TayTo posts.
Tom has completely gone to ground since arriving. Torrilla now forced to post pictures of the Chinese synchronised diving team. Either he has purchased a pair of stealth running shorts or he has zero value to the paps without TayTay.
Talk in the Hugh Laurie fandom of a TNM FYC panel this week. HL and TH are meant to both be there.
If true, will we see Taytay return to LA for more pap strolls?
>>528 Well if you have to replace staged and synchronized pap strolling with something, I guess synchronized diving is the obvious choice.
>>530 I saw this mentioned on tumblr too, but I can't find any official source. Where did you see it?
Personally I'd like to see Tom go to L.A. and Taylor NOT go to L.A., and then we get a breakup announcement via People or whatever she usually does.
So I wandered into his twitter tag and IG tag for the first time since I found that plane pic of Tayto. I said I wouldn't but wanted to check it out now that everything's settled down, see if I could find anything.
Twitter is still a mess. I think TS got butt implants to go with her boob implants. That's all I've got from twitter.
From Gossip Cop (let's not give them clicks):
Tom Hiddleston NOT Jealous Of Taylor Swift Kissing Mike Hess, Despite Report
>>533 Urgh. I saw it a few hours ago in HL's twitter tag. But then he went and tweeted something about swimming and I can't find it in amongst all the replies to his tweet.
>>535 I feel like Taylor writes these Gossip Cop articles in her Notes on her iPhone lol They don't read like the kind of copies a publicist would send. They read so juvenile...
>>530 You know she will. Gotta shut down those breakup rumors. They'll do an obnoxious pap stroll this time. Probably pick a hot spot in LA that's teeming with paps. Must make up for these two weeks of no pics. Had it really been two weeks?
>>537 The first pic screams of drag queen padding:
>>537 I think she wears something like that. Because in some pics her butt looks so flat you can't tell where the back ends and her butt begins. And then in some pics like the Selena Gomez concert pics, her butt looked pert and fuller in the skirt then flat again in the 4th of July pics.
Here, I found this. Looks like Tom will be back in Los Angeles this weekend, unless he's doing this Q&A via satellite.
>>539 You can see the top of the pad on her right side in that first pic.
>>542 Was just about to post this. Wonder how long he will stay this time..
>>539 Did she do today's pap stroll braless so she can show off the girls in competition with Katy Perry's recent pics? Or she's trying to lure Tom back lol
Maybe she switched to new pills but even then there's no way her chest got that big just from birth pills.
>>545 Not to mention birth control pills don't make your butt grow five sizes, even if you've got the best personal trainer in the world.
>>542 The HL one I saw was for Thursday, I think, so it must be different or another one.
>>548 Must be a brief TNM Emmy promo stint.
I'd go crazy if I flew as much as Tom.
So Luke retweeted this from the Huff Post.
>>550 Does this mean Taylor is about to launch her "Tom is a meanie and here's a song" campaign? As Tom's publicist he must be getting calls from tabloids and magazines to comment on whatever story they're getting to publish. Though personally I think he's commenting on the breakup rumors because this Tom Taylor circus is probably going to go on til the Emmy's massive eyeroll
>>551 I think this was more a dig at what's been said about TH. I fear TH might be indulging in a little victimhood just like Miss Swift. Mean-spirited judgments = the Selena concert/t-shirt digs at TH (all deserved). False information = the conspiracy theories about the relationship and its true nature, etc.
>>552 Lol maybe Luke should've done his job better instead of letting his client turn into the joke of the century in less than 36 hours flat.
I'm on the fence but majority of my body weight is leaning towards it not being over yet. But I'm wondering...if he's doing the SAG event to promote his Emmy nom, wouldn't a pap stroll with Taylor overshadow him and both his nominations like it's done so far? The industry news articles from the night will get buried by the tabloids covering date night and his pics from the event will definitely have lesser value than those of him with Taylor. Hmm...will serious actor Tom win out over thirsty for fame Tom?
>>552 I thought her singing at the bday party was impromptu with Nelly pulling her up onstage when he saw her dancing up front. I couldn't even hear her real voice over Kelly Rowland's lol that's embarrassing if it was a planned performance and theh didn't bother turning Kelly's voice down lol
>>553 When he was in the States for SDCC, the only pap walk they did together was the one when they first arrived where you couldn't see his face. Then he was papped alone, went to SDCC alone, flew to NYC alone. It wasn't until he went back to Los Angeles that they did Date Night sponsored by J Brand and Etro. Based on this, it's my guess that he will try and keep the focus on his work like he did with SDCC, and we'll only get shots of them together if he's in town long enough for them to leave enough time after his Emmy promo to avoid overshadowing it.
>>553 'Hmm...will serious actor Tom win out over thirsty for fame Tom?'
THE question. So far attention-whore Tom has serious actor Tom on the ropes. Serious actor Tom has taken a beating! And we're in the 7th round. Hopefully Million Dollar Tom sees the stool that is TS!
>>555 He'd have to leave a considerable gap between the SAG event and date night like he did with SDCC and date night, and who knows if he's getting that much time off. Also, last time the two had been together up until SDCC. Now they've been apart for two weeks and it's caused breakup rumors. Unless the breakup has happened, they'll wanna put up a united front and do a pap stroll ASAP. To be perfectly honest, I get a really good laugh out of how extra and comedic the two look together so I'll enjoy it. I'm hoping for the internally screaming eyes to have graduated to completely dead on the inside eyes now. The DListed article alone will be gold on that.
I have no idea how reliable Celeb Dirty Laundry is but they completely ripped into Taylor. The whole thing cracked me up: http://www.celebdirtylaundry.com/2016/taylor-swift-tom-hiddleston-break-up-singer-steps-out-braless-in-nyc/
I'd copy paste the article but I feel like we should give these guys the clicks because holy crap, it is just straight bitchy lol The last paragraph is brutal:
Thor is listed for production wrap on October 28 so there's still 3 months left which allows plenty of time for TH to travel back and forth for his Emmy campaign.
Brie was a frequent flyer during the SI shoot for her Oscar so I'm expecting much the same.
Given this is his first serious nomination and in light of his recent about- face to publicly parade his private life, I won't be surprised if Tayto amps up the stunts and remains grabby- hands for headlines.
TS papstroll in NY
Anonon, be strong when you look at this, her hair is atrocious.
>>550 his PR agent is as passive aggressive as his client
>>560 She didn't seem on her usual form at all during today's pap stroll. Does her sense of style fall apart when she doesn't have a boyfriend near her to dress accordingly to? Her curls looks fried and dry, I have no idea how the Swifties think that's a good look on her.
Lainey covered Taylor partying it up in the Hamptons and did a little recap of who Michael Hess is who's birthday party she was attending and has apparently been friends with for a while http://www.laineygossip.com/Taylor-Swift-and-Nelly-perform-Dilemma-at-Michael-Hesss-birthday-party-in-the-Hamptons-with-Karlie-Kloss/44593
>>563,564 Always a new low with this girl. But her bubble of privilege is why she never drowns, Layney is right about that. The same isn't true for TH, as he is finding out.
I doubt TH knew all of TS friends when this started, I mean who would? But yeah, makes you wonder. TH also comes from an environment of privilege and probably his closest friends are fund trust kids too.
>>560 She really likes VERY short skirts, doesn't she? How does she sit or climb the stairs without showing her panties? She's 26 years old but dresses like a teenager. She has no class. If Tom only wants a famous girlfriend, at least he could go for a classy and sophisticated lady instead of this tween Barbie.
TH has set up an official insta account and selfied.
>>566 Yes I also wondered how she bends over or sits down. We've all been there as children and I must say I revisited it as an adult briefly while living a life full of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll.
I can only assume that her bored bodyguards have one duty and that is to keep an eye on her hemline
>>567 Predictable, terrible photo. TayTo is not over, at all.
After all the talk about how he doesn't like socials and he prefers to think properly about stuff, I bet he fell for instagram because his gf has a special tool to use to delete negative comments, so poor tommy boy won't have to deal with vitriol anymore.
>>569 Good point. Given the choice, I would prefer insta too for that same reason. The twats on twitter are a menace.
Lol his IG pic already has anti Taylor comments and snake emojis within an hour. I'm hoping that since Mark Ruffalo got a Snapchat for Marvel, that Tom got an IG for that too and not to promote Taylor and his circus with her.
>>571 And TS's fans are already asking him to follow her.
A few months back I would have said it was on Marvel suggestion, now I don't think so, after all he doesn't need instagram to post photos and promote Thor3.
>>571 Bwahahaaa I guess Tay hasn't extended her privilege to her 'bf'.
We all wait with baited breath to see who he follows..
>>572 A few months back we all would have thought this was another innocent and innocuous reach out to fans. Now it reeks of a deliberate and desperate attempt to reconnect after severing all ties after twitter has failed.
>>572>>573>>574 He's trying to win back fans now or cultivate more through Loki (only paying gig at the moment it seems). I do think this has more to do with his Emmy campaign and him trying to mend his dying fanbase more than Taylor but if he follows Taylor then we should get ready for the terrible Insta Stories they'll do together.
All is right in the world as the Fail goes back to shading TH, painting him as a desperado for her IG followers (there may be some truth in that)..
He'll be on a jet plane in a jiffy to get to this event.
Los Angeles Times Talk on Thursday
Alright I don't know what it is but are him or his team removing comments already? There were a few telling Tom to break up with Taylor with snake emojis and they're gone now. There's a few new ones though. Maybe I missed them while scrolling? Either that or he's using the tool.
>>577 there's absolutely some truth in it.
"anushka1885Thank you for making @taylorswift happier than I've ever seen her💓💓💓"
Reeking of desperation. I reckon he won't follow her so he can tell himself it is all about the Werk.
She is what I refer to as "double bagging"- that's two bags under the eyes. Either she has snorted Martha's Vineyard or cried a river. she most certainly looks like shit and someone will get fired for not photoshopping this.
>>579 I found these
"sexyhardyYou deserve someone better then that 🐍 you're with. Just saying."
"dragonfly5665q🐍🐍🐍 (this one posted twice)"
Goodness his comment section is inundated by her fans.
Anyway, LA Time Talk on Thursday and SAG-AFTRA on Friday.
Well, I did ask some event before my holidays.
>>579 and this one "_1599_Woohooo, but please come back without the 🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍" I won't look for others because it's madness.
>>584 oh okay they're still there then and I just missed them scrolling. Those were the ones I was talking about. Phew was gonna get all tin foiled again otherwise
>>582 He's reeked of that for a good long time now. I think about the fans constantly asking people what he smells like. He smells of lies, desperation and very faintly of reptile.
I'd put money on him following Marvel people (Hemsworth and the like) before following TS. But maybe they will double down on the true love and actually post some of the pics they took on the Tour duh Lurve 2016. (Duh intentional)
Duh. This is barely blind: http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2016/08/blind-item-5-1073.html
This A+ list singer has a tough decision to make this week
His IG tag is now that pic - again, again, again. I wonder if Lukey had been noticing what I did the other day: TH wasn't in his IG tag - at all. TS, Seb Stan, Marvel and more Marvel, I <3 TS T-shirt pic memes, that one guy's lunch.
>>589 That sounds like something one of the fans might have sent in.
Btw, did you guys know that Taylor blocked the tracking on her jet? I find that very interesting because she's always known her jet was tracked and her team even fed her fanbase info on it. Now as soon as Tom leaves for Australia, she blocks her jet tracking. Am I reading too much into this or do you guys think it's an interesting development as well?
OK! mag pushing the breakup and Taylor being marriage obsessed narrative http://teachatandsugar.tumblr.com/post/148705471757/heres-the-ok-article-people-are-talking-about
OK is a UK owned mag. So far the UK mags have consistently pushed the breakup rumor but the US mags have stuck to "its all happy and lovey dovey" narrative.
>>591 I haven't been able to master the tracking site ever. How can you tell?
>>593 Fans who were tracking it before say it's blocked now. Maybe anonsy or Savvy (was it Savvy or SoSorry?) can confirm because they were the ones who knew how to track her jet from our group.
Blocking the tracking is an interesting move. They can easily plant more stories like the dinner at Church one now with no pap pics and no one would know if it's really true or not unless she's seen out and about in town. Tom wouldn't even have to be in the pics like it was in the Church one.
Robert Downey Jr is fucking awesome:
But we can find the flight history on this website:
>>597 The last few flights haven't been logged on planefinder either. Someone submitted screenshots to sugarteachatter of a flight from August 4 that was on the radar but never logged.
>>591 What will her crazy fans do if they don't know where she is, even when she's 30,000 ft in the air! They'll probably try to have her microchipped.
>>599 They'll just make up stories about where she is and claim their "mutual" at the airport sent them her flight plans, which is basically what they already do anyway.
>>595 This should be thrown in the faces of all the nannies out there who say "No one cares about this except gossip sites. His colleagues don't even know/care. His reputation hasn't been damaged, he's more popular now."
He's on his way! twitter(.)com/TimRoxborogh/status/763148134906068992
And we have no way of knowing if Taylor is too lol
>>600 Yeah I think they'll just blast false info and make it easier for Team Taylor to put out more plants to give the relationship more realism lol
>>601 It's forever etched in time and space now. And if RDJ is mocking on social media now I wonder how much he ribs him in person. He's gonna be getting teased about this even when they're no longer together.
>>600 Um, the flight plans of private planes are not for the general public. Naughty, Swifties, naughty!
>>602 He can only invite fans to sit down and have a chat when Taylor and her bodyguards are not around.
>>603 If TH knew what was good for him he'd re-instagram (if that's a thing!) that pic and own it.
If he and Luke could come up with a half decent witty retort (I don't think they can), all the better. But just owning his shit would be a start.
Apparently, even tough Team TS is no longer logging the flights of her planes into the websites, you can definitely still track her planes if they are in the air. You just have to search for her tail numbers while she is flying, and you can still follow the plane. Not sure if anyone in the world has the patience to do that though.
>>607 Oh I'm sure someone will. One of the ladies on tumblr who will stop at nothing to prove that Hiddleswift is True Love.
>>608 Beat me to it. They will get a year's worth of military MREs, instal a catheter and get down to business. The pit must know where the queen is slithering to.
From the latest TH ONTD thread: "Whenever I see him I always think of a story that my friend who works in the industry told me (somebody told him at a work party). Tom once tried to avoid being seen by some publicist he dated at a pub by climbing out the bathroom window to the beer garden but turns out she was standing right by the windows and it apparently got awkward. Doesn't sound true to me but idk why someone would lie about it lol"
>>606 He never comes up with a witty retort to any social media post anymore. He (or Luke) needs to hire a Social Media Analyst; they could hire me.
Speaking of Tom on IG, I found what I'm 99% sure is his private account a while ago and have checked in occasionally to see if the number of followers has changed because they were significantly low (in the 10- 20s). When the first pictures on the rocks emerged he jumped an extra 6 followers. Straight after CC he unfollowed someone and last night as he opened his official account he unfollowed one more person.
>>612 Any way I can convince you to link to it? Or at least give me a hint? Pretty please!
>>613 I'd be happy to if the crazies didn't read this thread and keep spoiling everything- I promise i'll keep you updated on changes. They are so monumentally daft I bet they would send him a friend request.
Before the Swift fiasco the account was very stagnant and his followers never changed. He only used it to like other people's posts. The number he is following only increases slightly when he's working and thats in the 350- 400 mark. The number of his posts hasn't changed since the filming of SI and thats when I picked up on the account.
>>612 Wonder if it was his own friends he was burning bridges with over Taylor and their joke of a relationship. Then again if he was always like this, I doubt his friends care. Maybe it was JArthy! Having their umpteenth secret lovers spat.
>>612 The timing of the first unfollowing coincides with Luke stepping in and his emergency trip to NY so I doubt its JArthy (surely she would still take him back but wouldn't that be juicy). My guess is a coworker confronted him at CC.
>>614 Interesting - I've been checking another account that I thought was his. It's following a different number than the amount you stated, but the list has all the right people he's been in touch with (mostly business) for quite awhile. I'll poke around more.
>>619 I could be wrong about this but if it's a fan, it's an extremely conscientious one. The main telltale sign was that crew members on SI followed this account. They do not follow any fan accounts.
It's completely private so there's no way of seeing who he's friends with, just the numbers. No profile pic, a name you would expect and a very British emoji.
>>618 A bigger jet? Just to follow the current boyfriend to Australia? Do the Swifties how scary clingy that makes her sound?
Keeping her jet's movements on lockdown is really an interesting move on her part. I still think it's so she can pretend they're still together by putting out plants. With that said though, I'm prepped for a pap walk tomorrow or over the weekend or every single day from tomorrow til he leaves.
'An image of a 35-year-old man wearing a tank top in the ocean that says “I [Heart] T.S.” in tribute to his mid-20s girlfriend is too funny not to bring up over and over again for at least a year, so maybe just keep circling back to this until Ragnorak comes out next November, RDJ. The joke is going to hold up.'
Well, I expected to wake up and find his instagram had millions and millions of followers, the nannies at CB yesterday were super excited about how quickly (yeah right) the amount was increasing, but it stopped at half a million lol
No wonder he invites fans to sit with him and talk, he is that desperate.
>>620 If with this official account he doesn't follow anyone, the idea he has a private one would make sense.
The Instagram account was probably part of his contract with that fashion brand that his girlfriend got him. He followed the brand on Twitter but he'll probably do what Taylor does and post photos to endorse products. She makes a lot of money with that.
I wouldn't be surprised if that Hiddles Fashion Twitter account was run by his publicist pretending to be a fan.
"A source close to the pair told me: “Tom and Taylor are 100 per cent still an item.
>>626 Ho hum. The Sun has to get behind this because it got the "scoop" on the photos. It is hardly going to admit that the "relationship"/contract is over because that makes its exclusive look cheap.
>>625 I don't think that Hiddlesfashion is run by a publicist. It's pretty witty (not a characteristic I associate with Luke!) and snarky about his fashion choices (or lack of them!) and doesn't always have the brands straight away, which it would if it were publicist run. It was also very rude about the I heart TS t shirt (saying we will never mention again that he owns this in addition to the 3 other t shirts he possesses).
>>609 "the pit must know where the queen is slithering to"
I believe I should apologise to Elizabeth Olsen for thinking she was the one to call the paps that infamous date night in London.
Now we know he's the one who wanted to use his private life to become more famous.
And it seems I'm not the only one, judging by some comments at CB. Like these two:
Well, I must say that I don't know who this Justin Theroux is. So, if he's doing the same thing as Hiddleswift to get famous, it's not working.
Are Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter still in LA? What if TayTo do a double date pap stroll with them? That will be spectacularly messy for the fans. What on earth would they talk about lol
Pics of Tom arriving at LAX on Torilla. He's wearing exactly what he wore when he left. You can't tell the difference at all between his arrival and departure lol
There's also a video. He's not been picked up by TS' people. Probably someone sent by The Night Manager Production company.
Without the ability to track her plane(s), http://tswiftdaily.com/ will become more of a place on which to rely. It's showing pics of her still in NYC as of this morning.
>>632 That would be amusing for me because I read CB and there's a particular poster that is in such denials that TH is best friend with Cumberbatch.
>>633 And once again that's a lot of luggage for someone who is supposed to stop in LA for a couple of day.
Here's the video
>>640 2 and 3, questions about a relationship are still better and more positive than questions about a breakup (which if it doesn't happen now, I don't think it will happen very soon)
The two hosts of the Brit tvshow This Morning, Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, mocking TayTo
I read that not anyone can change things in wiki pages, particularly celeb pages, but I'm not sure.
Anyway, TH's wiki page in the personal life section mentions that he confirmed he is in a relationship in TS.
>>643 I read that in TOD before she deleted, but if you look in the page's edit history there's been a war over whether or not boyfriends and girlfriends should be included on pages, and it keeps getting added and removed.
>>640 or even here until Friday night. My husband likes to say: eating for two, thinking for 1/2. I snap back with: I'm pretty confident the baby's yours, but we should have the DNA testing just to make sure.
>>642 Yes-siree, that shirt is a cultural phenomenon. I'm trying to think of something similar but I can't. And even if I could, in my current state I'd have to compare them using primitive grunts and pictures drawn on cave walls.
>>644 That must be where I read it. I wonder if they'll also debate the mention of the Rear of the Year award.
>>643 Wow, I'd call that real enough to write home about. I wasn't around when he was dating SF but if he did have a wiki back then, I'll bet she was the last mention of a gf, if she was even mentioned.
>>645 There was debate over whether or not a relationship this short should be included at all, but I think you're right - it seems that as long as it can be cited, it's fair game. Though I do think he should be directly quoted like he was in that article, complete with notes of stammering and awkward laughter.
>>647 Her page is semi-protected as well, so it can still be vandalized by a registered user.
>>640 Numbers 2 and 3 - and I'll juice fast for a day if It's number 4.
I believe that reverse psychology is at work here, on top of the mutual contract - their need to prove everyone wrong, her need to prove she is not a hateful or immature little girl, and their need to prove they're neither commitment-phobic nor flighty.
>>640 Oh I missed this when I caught up!
I'm going with either 2 (but the pictures will look suspiciously like they were taken weeks ago) or 3 (Tom will try too hard to look happy and end up looking crazed).
Mark Ruffalo is the first of his friends/co-workers to follow him on Instagram. Robert DJ posted that not so innocent shady post but did not follow him. Interesting, hum?
>>652 That is interesting. I'm sure it means something, but I can't decide what.
>>638 I wonder if he has garment bags folded up inside those suitcases. He seems the type to keep his suits in garment bags. When folded into three, they take up a fair amount of room.
Or maybe they are full of Tay's favorite treats from Oz, awww!! (Did I just write People's next article?)
>>654 Why on earth did he take all those bags for a week and a half long trip? If he's traveling with suits for his appearances this weekend in those bags, why did he bring them to Oz? Why on earth didn't he just leave them at his "girlfriend's" place?
When he came from London, he only brought one suitcase (the one he's been using for years). But the last time he travelled he has 3 brand new suitcases (from the same brand, according to Hiddles Fashion) instead of his old suitcase.I bet he got some complimentary new clothes from the brand that sponsored their last pap dinner and probably a few others. Even the suitcases are probably a gift.
Her jet is on the move y'all. Landed in NYC. We're getting a pap stroll tonight. Is pap strolls with her part of his Emmy campaign?
"demonic bean sprout"
>>658 I hope at least that it's an entertaining pap walk.The last one was so downmarket. A chain restaurant, a velvet mini, sponsored tweets afterwards and an article that was released a hot minute after they pulled up to the curb.
>>631 Justin Theroux married Jennifer Aniston last year. He's an actor and director in his own right.
>>633 What is this no t shirt under your jumper, Michael Douglas in Basic Instinct, free the nipple bullshit?
>>658 Okay, fun fact. If you search the Teterboro airport flight plans, there are no scheduled flights departing for CA either today or tomorrow. So, I'm assuming that TS might not head out to CA till this weekend, since TH has a Night Manager SAG Q and A on Friday night. I think that you have to file a flight plan to fly. So maybe no pap walks till Sat or Sunday.
>>662 This is the second time he's been papped in that sweater, and you could see through it both times. He must be doing it on purpose. He wants us to see his nipples. "Hello darlings, remember these? Follow me on Instagram!"
>>665 Flight plans need to be filed but should not be public for private planes.
Maybe FAA regs have changed since I had cause to know this. Either way, legal or illegal, her fans will find out.
>>665 Do his nipples have a twitter or IG account yet....um, just stepping away from the board for a moment to...do something...defo not register a new twitter account or IG account...no, not that.
>>667 Might I suggest @hiddlenips as a username? Not that you're going to actually do it... just... joking. Yes. Ha! Ha ha!
>>665 Taylor makes him wear her silicone pads next time he wears that sweater because no one should be seeing his nips except her.
>>664 This is Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston. We're worrying about flight plans and she's probably already here. I don't put anything past her or his thirst for attention.
From the DListed comments: Someone finally put to paper how much money this relationship has cost him in $$$$$.
$20 Mil per movie (lets say 3 - 4, or less for even more money)
>>652 No, it's not interesting and it doesn't mean much. When RDJ first joined twitter TH welcomed him but RDJ didn't follow him back right away. Everyone wondered about it then after a few days RDJ followed him back. The same will probably happen here.
>>671 I did think it was a little odd for RDJ to tag Tom in a post without following him. He's followed now, though.
It seems to me that Marvel is doing more social media promo for Thor, and I'd bet they were the reason for Tom's Instagram debut. Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth have both been sharing behind the scenes videos and photos. Tom's first photo was of Loki. I think it's not so much that they're being supportive of Tom as that they're promoting his account for professional reasons - RDJ by poking fun, Ruffalo by sharing that little clip of the two of them that's been very popular on tumblr.
>>672 You have a point - although I do not think that RDJ first post was about Marvel but about making fun.
It would have made more sense for TH to start this account while he was still on set and not now that he is in LA for his Emmy. I suppose we'll have to see, if he uses this account only for Marvel or for work in general.
>>670 No way he's getting $20m per movie. CH was getting only $12m before his stock fell with a string of flops. I think TH makes well under $2-3m for his films. Maybe with the Marvel films he gets to the $5m mark but even that may not be the case. I don't know if we can place a monetary value on what he's lost. It's all too much in the realm of possibility and the unknown. He has, however, lost some serious actor cred, a fair share of his dignity and perhaps set his career off on a track not to his liking. And he's certainly opened himself up to ridicule.
I think we can vaguely peg his Marvel earnings to what he paid for the house. It was marketed for £2.75m in Feb 2012 and he bought it for I think a little less than that. That is a fairly hefty mortgage for a single jobbing actor - assuming a £2m mortgage you are talking about £12,000 a month.
>>675 This could be on the money - so to speak. Don't forget that he had a flat in Kentish Town that he sold after 3 years (I think) which could have made him a tidy profit. Rumor (grain of salt) is that his maternal grandfather's trust fund/legacy allowed the purchase of that property outright. That rumor stems from the fact that his younger sister - who hasn't done a lot of work and perhaps hasn't earned a lot of money from her acting - bought a flat in Hampstead at the same time, i.e., they both came into some serious cash around the same time.
>>676 I think he did quite well on the flat. It was in an area that was going up a lot at the time. I assumed that the money for that purchase came from his father, who is easily rich enough to buy them each a flat if he could pay the fees for Eton. PS I think the sister's flat was also in Kentish Town.
>>676 Also I do wonder about the fabled Vestry wealth. In a radio interview earlier this year (the one with a lot about his early life) he referred to his maternal grandfather taking him out at Christmas to the panto with all of the grandchildren from that side. The impression was that there were at least 10. That inheritance (which I think wasn't even from the main branch of the Vestry family) would have had to stretch a long way to give all those grandchildren enough to buy a flat in London.
>>678 Oh I don't think it's Vesty wealth. Those connections are always overemphasized when mentioned. A baronetcy built on canned meat? Please come back with something impressive.
But his mother's side does seem to be populated with the types that tend to be monied and keep the money ticking over from one generation to the next. The father is another possibility.
>>679 I think Craig might be getting more! That's how cuckoo Hollywood is.
>>674 But yes Anon. all of your points about loss, agreed.
>>680 The canned meat heir - very Henry James, no?
Even if it wasn't from the Vestry family, the jam would still have had to spread a long way between all the grandchildren, so I think the father is a more likely source than a big inheritance.
>>683 Wish I could dig up the reference - someone quoted Tom's mother saying the Vesty wealth is no more (there is none, I think she said). So I'm guess the bulk of the wealth was probably distributed to his mother's parents' generation (between WWI and WWII), and whatever was left trickled down from there. I agree the trust fund came from his dad.
According to this o obituary, his maternal grandfather wasn't rich. He retired in 1980 and spent most of his time in the South of Portugal (the Algarve) where he had a house. I think Tom mentioned in some interviews the happy memories of his summer holidays in Portugal with his sisters. He died in January 1999. So if there's an inheritance, it should be in 1999.
Sorry, I forgot the link:
And now to important matters! Where is her plane!!
According to her Instagram, TS is with her parents at what people are saying looks like her Rhode Island house.
>>690 Did she delete something? I just looked and the last pic she posted is of her and Karlie.
>>691 It's on her Instagram Story. It's a new thing, apparently.
The Variety interview is worth a watch- love Jenelle
TH manages to endear himself again.
I must say, the tension in his body when bracing for audience questions is palpable.
>>694 She's been so friendly to him before, the tension was unneccessary with her. Did they not talk about what's off limits beforehand?
Anyway, great interview compared to the LA Times interview, she seemed less experienced.
>>695 The LA Times interview was terrible. She had the high pitched squeal of a nervous teenager out on a first date.
He must've had a few colonics with his emergency face tightening session to try and ease the tension.
"Loosen the arse and tighten the face please"
>>693 you can watch it here http://tswiftdaily.com/post/148810284467/taylors-instagram-story-81116
It doesn't seem her RI house to me, her house is right on the beach and there aren't that many trees around but most of all too many roofs of other houses.
A little video courtesy of Torrilla
I think I can almost officially say I'm no longer a fan, I watched this and was slightly annoyed.
>>697 If you pause it about 2 seconds in you can see her neighbor's house - black pointed roof, brick chimney. The video is flipped because she took it with the selfie camera, but it's definitely her RI house.
>>699 Hmm, don't know those roofs are too close - I'd so much prefer it if she were in LA, much more fun.
>>698 What the...very annoyed!
Mostly because it's such obvious advertising for IG it appears they are sponsoring him now as well.
Is that why he has suddenly opened an account and is taking part in a pointless, dull product placement video?
He's becoming a walking talking advert.
>>700 At 4 seconds in when she's filming her dad, you can see the tiny chimney of the white house behind hers. I think the roofs just look close because of the selfie camera distortion or because they're on the ground level, but she definitely filmed that video on the non-beach side of her house in RI.
>>702 That's a fair point, but right now I'd rather see TH's apologists gnashing their teeth because there's video/photo evidence they are still together (reading CB would do that to your brain).
Well, he is following TS on his instagram, so I guess it is "Instagram official". She wasn't the first person he followed though.
>>705 It would have looked odd if he hadn't, since TS is still following her ex, CH. The only way TH could have gotten away with it would be if he hadn't followed anyone. Plus, have you seen the newest TS article on the dailymail about her gardening? Its the first interview without a single pic of TH, and with them as a happy couple during pap walks! And, almost all of the comments are negative and are about TS's lifestyle and persona being completely fake! TH is TS's human shield against negative press right now. I think that they're starting to phase down, but I just can't see the timeline clearly.
>>705 TS was the first person he followed. You can confirm that on a web browser. But on the mobile app they appear alphabetically (not by name but by username). But she still hasn't followed him back. She's too busy gardening.
>>705 I'm so not wit' it. I thought IG official was when they posted pics of each other but maybe a follow is the new 'IG official' and a pic is 'IG official-official'
Whatever the case, I personally think pics are forthcoming. I think this follow may be a response to all the 'they haven't followed each other on IG so maybe it's over!!' comments on gossip pages/twitter/IG. You can't tell me that they haven't got their beady eyes on all the goss; they do. So a follow is just another way to say, 'pap stroll countdown initiated.'
>>708 I think for the timeline there have to be pics. Someone on CB who listened to the whole Variety interview said that he said he was going back to Aus soon, that he might not be at the Emmys and that he would be filming till November. Marvel was "working on" letting him come back again for the Emmys.
This about sums up TH for me at this moment. And I don't know what to make of it.
>>709 I had a girlfriend that used to call her boyfriend (now ex!!) 'The Fastest Fuck in the West.' TH might qualify for both of those titles.
>>711 A year ago when we found the kitchen door tweets you were defending him from my accusation of being a 3 minuter!!
>>712 Whoa, whoa, whoa!! I was defending him from the tweets' two minute accusations! ;) Enthusiasm gets you to 5 minutes at the very least
Those tweets make me think this is the reason why he didn't take her to his place. Although the chances of these two screwing up against a kitchen door are slim to none.
>>713 Whenever I say or type 'whoa' I'm always reminded of Alan Partridge telling his Russian girlfriend, 'That's English for "stop a horse."'
>>713 He didn't take her to his place because it is a slummy man cave still furnished with the stuff he bought from the vendor.
>>710 I don't know what he is doing. I really no longer have any idea. But as Couch said a few posts ago, having bravely waded through the Variety interview, he has nothing on after TR finishes filming. I think we are back to 2013 levels of circus bear.
>>715 Also there aren't enough rooms for their separate bedrooms and the bodyguards.
TS is following him now. It's official. The wedding ring will be next.
>>702>>704 I'm here for both. The apologists and the over invested shippers. Watching the meltdown on either side over something so inconsequential is hilarious. Also, I hate CB's veranda lady and love watching her pretend to be above it all when really she's just bursting at the seams to drag Tom and Taylor lol
She's in RI gardening with her parents. Tom will probably join them next Sunday for a pap stroll with her parents on the beach. They might even post photos of their family barbecue on IG. Maybe his family will join them too. Hell, he might even ask her father for her hand in marriage.
>>721 This summer has obviously been a spectacularly failed attempt to seem "young" and "relevant" - TS, emojis, Snapchat, Instagram, his behavior in general... it's not working. He needs to be stopped.
>>721 If they pap stroll with her parents - with photographic evidence - I might be more inclined towards the legitimacy of this relationship, which I had recently started to doubt. Her parents have mostly been off the table as far as pap strolls are concerned. We got articles about her parents meeting past bfs, but never pap shots. I think CH was the only bf to be pictured with her parents (though she never met his).
Apparently on the q&a with the HR tonight, he "was asked what he has learned about the “culture of celebrity” after his high-profile summer. His response: “We all live in a world where every phone has a camera” and “there’s nothing new about the spotlight for me.” He said it’s almost “too soon to tell” what he’s learned. He said “there are many sides to a story. Sometimes there are a lot of stories out there which are false. The hardest thing is to try to not let those falsehoods affect your own life.” (Quote from tumblr - I didn't watch)
>>725 Oh, this is what other fans mean when they say 'my fav just became problematic.'
'Every phone has a camera.' Tom, we weren't criticizing you because you happened to be caught out with your new girl a few times by fans and their phones. We had a problem with the blatant publicity you and your girl courted by calling the paps to capture every event in your lives, including your farts.
Twitter is overwhelmed with screencaps of their mutual follows. On the same day as he does yet another interview. Coincidence?
>>730 No, it's all rather predictable at this point. Their bag of tricks is terribly limited:
This is from a Swiftie so it's probably correct (they take his words down like they're gospel):
“Wow. Well, uh, you know it’s interesting. We all live in a world where every phone has a camera and there’s nothing new really about the spotlight on me. I think, you know, the spotlight that’s what happens when you’re a public figure. Um, what have I learnt about it? I’ve learnt to…I don't quite know, maybe it’s too soon to tell. But, um, let me give you a proper response. I’ve learnt that there are many sides to a story, and that, um, that sometimes there are a lot of stories out there that are false. And the hardest thing is to try to not let those falsehoods affect your own life.”
That culture of celebrity answer was so terribly coached. Embarrassing and transparent in trying hard that he's just so famous he's used to it by now eyeroll
Taylor's on her way to LA. Get ready for reunion weekend with dinner date tonight and beach strolls all through the weekend!
>>733 Beforehand I wanted it all to end and quick. Now I want it to get messier and more car-crashy. I don't want him to have a breakdown - I've got to think about karma at this point in my life. But I have this funny feeling that he doesn't think anything's wrong. That quote is not the quote of a man who fully understands what is happening. He's like so many of his fans who are holding on to their unflinching denial. And maybe that is his coping mechanism and he does have an inkling. Still I want him to feel just a little of the true - even authentic - reality of the situation.
>>735 I don't want him having a breakdown or anything terrible like that either. I don't think all this warrants such a severe reaction. He's dating a manipulative woman who is fine with coded racism and slut shaming when it furthers her agenda. He is putting on a public spectacle with this relationship because it's something he's wants so he can be famous in the mainstream. Too bad the blowback was spectacular.
>>736 I can't help but feel like going to the Emmys would be a disaster for him/them. The jokes about both of them. The camera on his face when he tries to laugh at the first one while he turns red; later on he tries to be stoic but you can tell he hates it. The camera on her face as the jokes are delivered. She can't hide her hate face. Then the press would be about her/their reactions for the next few days afterwards, immortalized on youtube forever. Disaster.
>>737 Remember that one fashion event he was supposed to attend with SLJ and then something happened (Bora Bora I think) and then he bailed? I think he may skip the Emmys, especially since he's not the favorite to win. He already dropped the possible excuse of "I have to film" so he may have already decided to pass.
>>738 I thought so too when he said that. Giving himself an out on camera. Nice move, which makes me wonder if the contract will end about then. He can use work as the excuse for not going, then announce the break up after the Emmy voting period is over but before the ceremony.
According to the poster on LSA who attended the SAG-AFTRA event, the mod mentioned how Tom has to be back on a plane to Aus in 48 hours. That's an interesting bit to add. But still gives him two days to do staged pap strolls with Taylor who is definitely in LA now. So I guess we should be expecting something tomorrow and Sunday. The LSA poster mentioned she noticed a change in his energy, more cocky she felt.
>>732 I'm not surprised, we are talking of a man that thought ISTL's script was great and its director good and in the face of a 100 critics saying that the script and director were shit, he never questioned his ability to pick a project. If he never did that for a film, imagine if he will for a gf even if it's his own Guardian dragging him for it. He is the poshie result of Eton&Oxford, he'll never admit he is wrong.
>>735 I share your sentiment. But I don't think this was ever going to end quickly (I hoped for it back when for a brief moment I gave him the benefit of the doubt). TS found a guy who is willing to do her bidding. TH found a girl that in exchange for his services is willing to leave him alone when he is working and is so rich he doesn't have to pay for her.
You don't pimp out your family to the paps when there are true feelings, nor for a fling.
>>738 That's what I thought when he said it, it's bs that he is working out things with Marvel, if they gave him a weekend off for this promo there shouldn't be any problem giving a weekend off for the Emmys. But I don't think it's for paving the way for a breakup, it's a convenient excuse to not be there because he knows he won't win.
TH and Hollywood Reporter
>>744 at minute 19:44 he gets asked that summer and celebrity question.
>>745 and soon after that the host points out how instagram might be a more friendly social media than others, TH agrees. Which is basically what I said. he joined to avoid the vitriol.
>>740 The Swifties are convinced TS is still in RI as her jet there hasn't moved- apparently it's the other plane which has landed in LA, departing Illinois.
Either he flies to RI to marathon watch TNM with her folks or we will be spared a pap stroll for now or the Swifties are full of shit.
>>737 The likelihood of mockery at the Emmys is so high I really hope she does accompany him so I can watch the slo- mo reaction gifs on repeat.
>>747 So it wasn't her jet that flew her to RI that came to LA? It's a different one? What if she's doing that run around thing, sending her jet out to LA to get tongues wagging? I think she's here though and god knows I'm prepared for a pap stroll weekend. I don't get how people track her jet, I tried but couldn't figure anything out apart from the dates part. Swifties make up a lot of crap but I'm surprised they wouldn't be spreading tales of Taylor in LA with Tom.
>>748 The story they're going with is - are you ready - the jet flew to pick Tom up in Los Angeles and take him back to Rhode Island so he can ask Taylor's parents for her hand in marriage.
I'm not making this shit up, I swear.
>>749 LOL HAHHAHAHAHAAHAHHSAHhhhhhhhhhhhhh nononononono my sweet summer children!
Did he not just say in the SAG-AFTRA Q&A that he has to go back to filming in Oz in 48 hours? That rules out flying to RI.
>>749 Well now we know who's been writing all those E! and People lovey dovey articles about Tom and Taylor. And then we'll get an IG story of all of them planting kale and Tom singing a Hank Williams song in the background because what better to serenade a country gal with than ol Hank himself?
Am locked out of my tumblr (long story, but no 2-bit authentication where there is wifi but no phone signal), so please post links to pics of any pap walks!
He started following some of the Twitter fans that kept kissing his ass even during this pathetic period. He's so fake! He became a marketing product just like his stupid girlfriend.
>>755 Oh no. Please not the Twitter incarnation of the incredibly clever woman.
>>755 phew. No. He did follow Hiddlesfashion - wonder what he thinks about her comments on the t shirt....
But how can he follow with a straight face anyone whose bio describes themselves as a Hiddles nerd? They all have some bullshit "but I love Shakespeare too, y'all" stuff on there, but seriously.
>>757 No I mean the woman on tumblr who majorly kisses his arse along with Berlinale girl.
Tom Hiddleston seen out in LA on August 11, 2016
But I think Tom also followed some fans when the photo of him and Jane Arthy at Bora Bora become public. That's when he started following that super fangirl Frenchie.
>>755 That's hardly surprising, sucking it up to his fans is what he did when he needed to make his twitter accounts famous. His instagram is more scarce in followers, he needs to make it look like he gives a s**t about them. Before he goes back to not giving a s**t again.
Completely OT: Is anyone else in love with Katie Ledecky?
>>755 Of course he did. Damage control. Connect with someone (he thinks) runs the positive side of the fanhive and hope she puts out/continues to put out those positive signals. Again, obvious to all but the most dyed-in-the-wool TH fans.
Isn't that one of Taylor's bodyguards in the pics in >>760?
I might be wrong but those tattoos look familiar. I want to say he was in the pics of Tom and Taylor arriving with fanfare in Australia but I'd have to double check.
>>758 I find this follow interesting given the sponsored nature of the last pap walk, with JBrand jeans and Etro both tweeting about it, and TH following JBrand just a few days before. Then TH caps it off by wearing a new Etro shirt for the stroll. Did someone say that the shirt wasn't even available yet to the public?
>>760 Thanks, M. I hate navigating to Torrilla.
More summoned paps? Warm up for today?
>>766 I was about to write how he did it to read the reaction to his outfit, but yours makes more sense.
>>765 I just did a close tattoo comparison up close using an etonline Australia pic, and I can confirm that the tattoo of the LA guard from yesterday, is definitely not the same arm tattoo as the TS guard in Australia. Different circle pattern on the inside of the right hand, and the guard yesterday in LA also had a vital signs mark on the arm as well (like the code on a machine in the hospital), and also horizontal writing on the inside wrist, plus he has more red in his tattoos than the Australia guy. Plus LA guard is skinnier than the Australia guy. The tats don't match, for sure. I think that many celebrity bodyguards have tattoos, b/c they are possibly ex military men.
>>769 Ah okay. Thanks for looking it up! So he's hiring his own guards here and not using his gf's. Or he could be using the same agency as her. Idk, doesn't matter since he's had his own bodyguards before.
>>766 Taylor also wears ETRO. Did she have a hand in getting Tom that gig? JBrands and ETRO. Aren't those brands geared more towards teens? Like they're more youthful brands? I'm asking because I have no idea myself. From their social media they do seem like more brands Taylor's demographic would buy.
>>770 Etro is incredibly expensive, so probably not. Like $900 for a shirt.
>>771 Oops! Never mind then! It's for all the rich fans then lol
This is a pic from yesterday's promo
TH interview with Deadline https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4dXYm3WHYc
At a bookstore. Probably getting a book on how to contour a tenhead back into a forehead.
>>774 That tiny fringe is yikes. I do wish he'd adopt a forwards hairstyle- the Tintin is in rapid retreat. There's noticeably less hair than the last visit.
According to the Swifties the LA plane is on its way to RI and the RI plane has gone to Nashville via NY.
>>769 Despite the short buff guy looking like a bodyguard, he is carrying all the bags which is something bodyguards don't do. I think he may be Olly's replacement.
Speaking of Olly, he has unfollowed THs official IG
>>779 I thought that about bodyguards...until I saw pics of her bodyguards carrying her purse, shopping bags, etc. And then there's that pic of JLaw's hot bg carrying her dog.
I show that he's still following. I wouldn't think Olly has been jettisoned as he was in LA for Comic-Con. He's just not working harder as he usually doesn't work.
>>778 I've been reading a plane anon 'informer' tumblr (replace plane with jet and attach the word anon if you want to lurk). It's been funny how they've been trying to find every way to put TH and TS together all weekend.
>>780 I should refresh the screen every time I start another post.
Someone posted this article today. It's another article with a wild theory that he's dating TS to make EO jealous: http://www.thehollywoodgossip.com/2016/08/taylor-swift-does-her-squad-hate-tom-hiddleston/
>>782 LOL! They called her Ashley Olsen in it hahaha there goes the story if you can't even get the ex's name right.
Did Tom fly to Rhode Island or what? Someone catch me up.
>>786 Ha ha ha, swift catch up. I see what you did there.
Now, we know Tom is a creature of habit, and he was not wearing one of his usual air travel outfits when he was photographed today right around the time the jet took off (I think it was around the same time, correct me if I'm wrong). His flying outfits have been t-shirt with blue jacket or, more recently, navy sweater. The gray shirt he had on today was a press conference/interview/meeting shirt. With most other people this would be insignificant, but like I said - creature of habit.
>>787 For someone so predictable and habitual in everyday life, it appears he redirects all his spontaneous randomness into his love life. That must be equally thrilling and annoying.
I'm backing some extreme bullshit tomorrow.
They need to up the ante from the tweeny antics of following each other on IG to a picture of TSs engagement ringed hand caressing THs prize winning naked buttox or there will be no persuading the worlds media they are still a couple.
So I have no idea how to verify this, but it might be TH is on snapchat too
attends SAG-AFTRA Foundation Conversations for The Night Manager at SAG-AFTRA Foundation on August 12, 2016 in Los Angeles, California
all-dressed up as he leaves an office building in Los Angeles on August 12, 2016
Do You know what I find most interesting in all this? She's supposedly in RI but there are no paps there, which proves they only go there when she calls them.
There are never pap photos of her or Tom getting out of her house in LA or his hotel. Do they think we've as stupid as her teenage fans?
>>792 I read a recent Swiftie account from one of her recent NY gym paps. The fan waited for hours yet somehow the paps knew to turn up just 5mins before her arrival.
That's not at all suspicious..
For those like me that don't have a instagram account and wondered who TH thought worth following, Time did a list
Ciara, please come join us. Yours sincerely, the Kareha ladies.
"The Warriors Three Returning For Thor: Ragnarok"
The gist, for Anon, is that the actors playing them posted on instagram that they are in Australia.
>>792 No, they don't but we're also not their prime audience. The bigger group are the Swifties and they'll believe whatever is said about Taylor as long as it's positive. Anything negative, even with proof, is discarded. That's what Tom is hoping to tap into by hooking up with her.
>>795 I love the screencap of the text exchange with her name in his address book as "Taylor (My GF)."
>>797 He's being the most authentic he's been in the past six years lol He couldn't handle the facade anymore and let his true self shine.
I'm still waiting on their pap stroll though. Will they do their pap strolls through IG now? All those selfies they took, should we expect a barrage of #tbt and #fbf in the coming weeks? Or is he going to be go underground now completely and just peek through his social media by posting Thor 3 production promo?
>>797 TH went to Cambridge.
But I think you maybe get a false impression from him , and from the British press generally, about what that Eton/Oxford combination means. I know a lot of people who went to both, and they are almost without exception highly impressive individuals. That is not surprising when you consider the quality of those institutions. Eton is an incredibly competitive school to get into, and it is not just rich boys who go there - it offers £6 million a year in scholarships, which for one school is amazing. And Oxford is, according to the Times Educational Supplement, the second best university in the world (after CIT, and before Cambridge, Stanford and MIT). It offers some of the most challenging undergraduate degrees in the world, which are, like most outstanding courses, focussed on challenging their students' intellectual complacency rather than reinforcing it.
It will be interesting to see what he does with the IG. Perhaps it will be a repeat of the twitter acct: starts off with some personal stuff (TS, BTS info/pics) and then becomes all biz. Perhaps he keeps it all biz from the start because he's learnt his social media lesson (he's not learnt any lessons).
>>802 So far the IG is pretty dull. But the Twitter is showing promising signs of him having forgotten all the social media lessons (following fans again!!). Can song of the day (of course from TS) be far behind???
Anyway, where is Wally/Waldo? Why has my back to back Olympics viewing not been interrupted by news of a sponsored pap stroll?
>>803 It's eerie, isn't it? Quiet... almost... too quiet...
>>801 Umm, Hillary went to Wellesley before Yale - thank you very much. #almamatershoutout (I'm going to IG hashtag everything!)
Actually, Bush the Younger went to Yale, too, and Trump went to UPenn - an IVY league school. #socarefulwhatyouwishfor!! ;)
>>804 And the theme from Jaws begins to play...dudu, dudu, dudu, dudududududu
>>803 They've flown to Rio to present the medals, hum the national anthems together and take to the podium for winning gold in the 800-meter PRmance contest!
Congrats, Tayto! You are the pride of your nations.
>>807 Oh my God, when I started reading this I thought they had actually flown to Rio and I was like THAT'S IT, I AM DONE.
Don't forget gold in the couples' 400m pap stroll.
>>791 Thanks, M. Are these summoned paps again? What do we think? Okay, pics at LAX, sure, it's LAX. But outside an office in LA. #medontthinkso
Is he calling them now when he's alone so that down the line he can say something along the lines of, 'I've always been a target for the paps, even when I was alone, so no, we didn't call those paps or set up those pictures.'
>>805 Sorry - the lawyer in me focuses on the Yale Law part!
It is shocking to think that Trump has any higher education. But my point was a slightly different one. The nearest equivalent to Oxford/Cambridge is Harvard/Yale (at least traditionally - the pre-eminence of MIT and others in recent years seem to have opened up the field). But you don't see the American press bitching about the "Harvard/Yale bias" int HR same way as the British press goes on about the "Oxbridge bias."
>>808 If he showed up in Rio I would fly out there to push him in the boating lake.
Constantine Louloudis went to Eton and Oxford. He has a first in classics (one of the hardest degrees at Oxford), and he has managed to squeeze in four wins in the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, a world championship win, a bronze Olympic medal for rowing and now he has a gold. He was born in 1991. That's what I mean about impressive individuals. Step aside, TH.
>>811 My second point was to the access, scholarship and state school issues you briefly mentioned. Would TH have gotten into Cambridge without Dragon and Eton behind him? Who's to know. It will be interesting to see what happens when/if the current govt brings back the grammar school system, or some retrofitted version of it.
>>815 He got a first. That suggests to me that he would anyway. However great your education was to age 18, from there on in you are on your own, and they don't give you a first because you went to a good school.
>>815 Rowing is not boring. Rowing is hanging around on the river with a lot of very tall and unbelievably hot men with big shoulders who are all wearing lycra.
>>816 His intellect is always been in the tops, there's no doubt there. But I do think he's always had an overinflated sense of self. I don't know the causes of it, whether it was part of his upbringing or whether it was inherent and exacerbated by his school environment. So I agree with your point in the earlier replies that his schooling isn't solely responsible for him being entitled, self centered and narrow minded (really hope I didn't misunderstand you there).
>>818 has* always been in the tops.
Also wanted to add that as far as his "authenticity" goes, I think the only authentic thing about Tom is that he really wants to be very well known and recognized in the mainstream. He wants the attention and it's clear from his public appearances that he relishes in it. It seems to me he's trying on different approaches to it. He did the serious actor stay mysterious approach for a while and it didn't work fast enough so now he's giving the public celebrity relationship approach a spin and it definitely gave him that recognition he wanted in the mainstream, just for all the wrong reasons. Now if he's content with that and doesn't care that his own accomplishments are getting shoved aside then he'll continue while pretending he's above it all lol
>>818 You understood exactly what I meant.
I do think his schooling is responsible for this is a sense. He was a very little child when he was sent away to boarding school. It's unusual even in the UK to send kids away at 7. I think that damaged him a lot more than he is prepared to admit. I can see it making a child desperate to fit in, to please, to make friends by being the class clown. To gain the attention and love of the audience (parents) that rejected him by sending him away so young.
>>820 That's why I've always been hesitant to peg down either school or just his privilege as the cause of his mindset. But going to boarding school at 7 and then more or less living that life well into adulthood, could account for his need for attention and wanting to be famous. It could explain that approval he's always seeking by being such a people pleaser, that is IF he didn't get any proper approval and encouragement from home and family.
>>816 I'd say your performance at university very much depends on your primary and secondary education, and he had some of the best prep with Dragon and Eton. But I don't argue that he's a smart boy. Having done my own Classics degree, his powers of recall must be unimaginable. Greek participles can destroy even the sturdiest of souls, i.e., me!
>>822 I vaguely remember him mention something about his younger sister at the school; no idea about the older sister.
So where do you all look when you're looking for airport pap pictures? Twitter, IG have nothing on TH at LAX or any other airport. Right now, both JFK and LAX have evacuations for gunshots and suspicious bags, repectively, so that's dominating the current news.
Torilla usually gets the pics very early.
Wow, I was only making a joke using his schools, I was not blaming the schools for his latest choices. But got it, do not use schools in jokes.
>>822 There is a correlation. But at Oxford it's not the one you'd think. The group most likely to get a first is state educated boys; the least likely, privately educated boys. The theory is that boys do better at private schools because they aren't self-starting like teenage girls. They need to be druv. So they blossom at private schools and get amazing grades. When released to the freewheeling environment of Oxford, where the tutorial system is a lot ofnprivate study and (for arts subjects) typically two or three hours of tutor contact a week, they crash and burn. State educated boys are the outliers because they didn't get pushed so much at school but were successful anyway. So they know how to do it themselves - and they continue to do so at Oxford.
>>825 Hey Couch, no shade intended and certainly no intention to stop you joking about him. The subject of privilege and achievement is in the news a lot in the UK and it comes up regularly when discussing TH because of his background. I'm aware that there is a range of views about it and I certainly don't expect everyone to share mine.
>>827 None taken, really, no worries. I truly didn't think it might prompt a conversation about the school system, that I know is a sensitive subject in the UK and since my knowledge of it is limited to what you guys write about it, I would never think of touching in a serious fashion.
Where is he?!!
1) In bed with TayTay celebrating their engagement
2) En route back to Australia celebrating his escape
Proving once again they CAN avoid paps.
>>829 Where indeed? Was he finally able to avoid people with cameras on their phones hellbent on capturing every moment of his life?
I love #4. TH learning about hashtags and social media trending lol
>>831 I think it all depends on when the Barnes & Noble employee's TH sighting took place. She posted her pic with TH on Instagram at 2pm on Saturday and she posts quite regularly on Instagram. But the TS plane took off from Burbank early in the afternoon on Saturday as well. The Jet Anon said that she was pretty sure that because of when the flight took off, that TH probably wasn't on it, but I wasn't watching. Does anyone know when the plane took off from Burbank? For the record, TH seems to able to fly commercially around the US w/o being seen by fans (his most recent trip from LA to NYC trip). We didn't know where TH was till he was spotted during lunch @ Balthazaar in Soho. By contrast, TH seems to always get papped at LAX when he leaves the country using the international terminal. Therefore, if the bookstore sighting took place early on Saturday, then he is probably in RH. However, if the bookstore sighting took place later in the afternoon, TH is probably lying low in LA, since it wouldn't make sense to the narrative if he and TS aren't together after 2 weeks apart. I guess we'll see!
When the SAG video comes out later today we'll see exactly what he said, which may still be a lie. Also, are we sure of where she is?
Jetanon said that the flight from Burbank flew to Groton, which is TS's airport for her Watch Hill, RH house. At the same time, her other plane flew from Groton to NYC and landed, and then continued to Nashville.
People are assuming that the plane dropped off her brother in NYC and her parents in Nashville. And also, assumed that TS stayed on in RH since the Burbank plane landed in Groton for sure. Would she let non family members stay at her house if she wasn't there? Probably not. So either TH was at B&N early on Saturday and flew to Groton on the Swift plane, or he's hiding out in LA, or he left for Brisbane on the very delayed Qantas flight last night. However, I have a hard time believing that TH could depart LAX w/o being papped by a fan or paparazzi. We'll see.
Or Taylor could've chartered a private plane for both of them out of LA or NYC to Australia under the radar. I don't know how Marvel would feel about that or any production for that matter. He's definitely laying low otherwise Sat Sun were prime pap stroll days and they didn't do anything.
I'm going out on a low, sturdy limb here: They are not together. Why? Because we've not seen them. Save for the lying low post #kimexposedtaylorparty, if they've been together, we've gotten pics. Even when they came back from Oz on the private jet, we got pap pics and hand holding at the private airport! At this point, no pictures = not together.
As to lack of LAX pics. I thought when they first went to Oz that someone said that LAX had a specific terminal, area, underground tunnel/bunker (I forget the terminology used) which allowed celebs to come and go without being seen. The implication being that Tayto wanted to be seen leaving for Oz. True, untrue?
Always remember JA guys, no sightings no nothing and then BoraBora happened.
TH is a master in making his fans think nothing is going on. The final round of online voting for the Emmys started today, I doubt TH wanted to give his fans reasons not to vote for him.
The mess last night at LAX was, if he or they were trying to get out of town, a fortunate wrench thrown into strategy to lay low.
As always, the article isn't worth time, but the comments always tell a better story.
TH was seen boarding a private plane in LA on the 14th in up on Torilla. Wow!
spotted boarding a private airplane in Los Angeles on August 14, 2016
So do we think that this is really a love story? I'm so confused!
And he's got a gift for Tay. Must be to celebrate the 2 month anniversary. What do we think it is?
>>842 If these were taken yesterday and that's her plane, weren't both her plane on the East coast on Sat already? Or are these from Sat and he was on her plane at Burbank that then flew to the east coast?
I'm confused about whether he's boarding her plane to go meet her or whether he's boarding a private flight for Australia. Considering he said he needed to be on a plane to Aus in 48 hours on Friday. Unless he was lying and he's spending this week with her. Or they're already en route to Aus together on a private flight.
>>848 No, it seems he was on the plane back to RI. So, he's either going back to Oz later or via another departure airport on the East Coast? But who knows?
RH vacation makes the most sense. If they continued to do public pap walk dates in LA, wearing matching clothes that they have endorsements with, in front of paparazzi that they called in advance to chain restaurants, it would look as is they cared more about being seen together then actually being together in private.
>>846 I just don't know. If it is real it's normal that they would want to see each other before a probably long separation. If it's fake they have to show they have seen each other or everyone will say it's over.
If they are not seen together during this visit, and there is no People puff piece or similar, I think I will tend towards believing it is real. Some evidence that they are spending time together alone and not for any ulterior purpose. If, however, they can't resist pimping themselves out I will remain unsure.
>>847 I saw the gift bag. I am going with a handbag. It's way too big for jewellery and most jewellery bags are fairly distinctive (eg Cartier, Tiffany). It's also an "I care about you, but not too much yet" present.
>>853 If it is her plane - and it looks like it from the pics and M's posts - then the pics were probably taken on 8.13 but only released on 8.14, so Torrilla could still be correct.
If no pics (pap, stages, IG) come out, I too will lean toward real. But that just hasn't been their MO.
>>854 TS does love her purses : ) It could be a houseguest gift (TH has great manners), or it could be a parting gift for the end of the contract. So entertained, and so confused!
>>853 Unless, of course, the ulterior purpose of not being seen is to convince people they're real. Plus business meetings have to happen, right? And we don't know if anyone else is on that plane, or at the house in RI.
>>856 We're gonna get a two month anniversary swan pastry story tonight, you just wait!
>>852 You're not being snarky, SoSorry. The thing is that she conducts herself so often in the press/social media, period. Those holiday shots with Calvin seemed to be in response to break-up rumors because they hadn't seen each other for a length of time and he didn't go to the Met with her - cue holiday snaps.
>>858 Him getting papped while boarding her jet is no accident or "people with cameras on ther phones". First the IG follows and now boarding her plane but no sight of her or them together. Either they've broken up and are keeping up appearances or the whole thing is a sham from start to finish and this is just part of their "oh we're a real couple see we are private you just don't let us"
>>861 I was just coming back here to say I think that Tom getting papped boarding her jet counts as them wanting everyone to know they're together.
Maybe the gift is from B&N. The woman who helped him said in her video she was asked to keep title a secret. B&N has gift bags.
But yeah, likely a purse.
And, he wearing the same clothes as from the book store photo. So yeah, these pics are from Saturday, and he went to RI.
Gaining some traction in his twitter feed. You couldn't make it up.
>>866 I love the email from the senior police officer to his underlings. Check out the joyous use of scare quotes!!!
"I don’t want to detract from the good work @NorPolPrevent do via twitter, but probably just helpful to be mindful of editing pics of ‘celebrities’. They spend a lot of money and carefully craft their public images, and associations with contentious topics can be concerning for them!"
If he's giving her books, does that he mean he's prepping her for the Emmy's so she can make intellectual conversation? Did he buy her Purity or that other book Any Human Heart? Is the Emmy's on then too?
Man I don't know anymore with my guess. I'm thinking if they have broken then they're just putting on a front until Emmy voting and VMAs are over. If it's still on (real relationship) then who knows how long they'll be together. He has no problem doing whatever she wants. If it's all PR then the pretense is on until the Emmy's are over. Those are my guesses.
Shit. Tom Hiddleston is HAVING A BREAKDOWN...because GC says that he's NOT having a breakdown.
>>863 Thank you for saying that I'm not snarky! TH was between the biography section and the fiction section I think, so anything is possible. Maybe he bought her that Franzen book he loved, Purity. Amazing book, btw.
>>868 Maybe when this is all over, TH should contact Prevent and ask them to photoshop ALL of those pics, every last one, with I <3 Prevent.
Yeah, officer, they paid a lot of money for those pap shots and $10 for the shirt - don't go stealing their true love thunder.
>>870 He must have been bawling on the plane back to RI because he almost got away in LA lol
>>853 >>874 I didn't watch the live interview. I can't watch him move and speak at this point. And this is not me defending him - I won't - but maybe he said that he needed to be 'on a plane' in 48 hours and the interviewer just assumed it was to Oz. Hell, maybe he even said 'I need to be on a plane for work!!
>>870 Is it bad that I'm almost hoping for a public meltdown? Does that make me a terrible person?
>>875 You know, he said at SDCC he had to get back to work right away, and then he was with TS. Now if it happened again and he said he has to be on a plane to work, then flew to TS? Is he trying to tell us something? Blink out an S.O.S., Tom.
>>877 What was the quote exactly? Can anyone Renner which interview he said it in?
>>878 It's the SAG-AFTRA one that's being put on YouTube today. Any information we have so far is from a few people who were there.
>>878 I think that getting back to Australia ASAP was mentioned by Zach in Nerd HQ at Comic Con. I think...And then TH went to NYC.
>>876 I'll give you the same answer I gave to SoSorry: nah.
I'm dishing out indulgences like Martin Luther isn't born. Who else wants in?
Have we got a JustJared write up yet? Complete with, he bought a gift for Taylor and a close-up on the bag? It's not a 'random pap shot' unless it shows up on JJ.
>>883 Did anyone see the new dailymail article about Tom? 'There are many sides to a story': Tom Hiddleston stumbles over question about his romantic summer with Taylor Swift during Q&A
Every time he says 'I have to get back to work' or the like and he ends up with TS, it just tells me he's telegraphing that she. is. work. The contract is real.
The SAG-AFTRA video is out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OtkF5iXdsk
It's 78 mins long. I'm not particularly interested in spending that long watching it, so I'm waiting for someone on tumblr to watch and tell us the exact quote about the 48 hours.
Not Michael K so not quite as funny as it should be but there's a giggle or two.
>>889 I thought it was legit too but these plane pics are making me question it all. They were taken at a private airport by a professional agency who didn't release them until today when final Emmy voting started. Combined with the GC article that reiterates again that Tom and Taylor are still together, I'm side eyeing this whole thing.
The interviewer said, you're literally 48 hours from now, going back to Australia.
>>891 TH put his head down and nodded. So, he fibbed...
>>890 Have any news sources caught on to these pics though or just fans? If its not in the news then they've been effectively buried.
I'm not jumping on any legitimacy train unless he manages to return to Oz without a public announcement/ display that he is spending his time with Tay Tay.
>>892 Apparently, 'Australia' is a code for 'wherever Taylor says.' He can't even say the word, he has to break eye contact to fauxacknowledge the lie.
>>893 Professional photographers took the pics of TH at Burbank airport, where TS is never papped really, and they held the photos for two whole days! Plus team Swift allowed her jet, N898TS, to logged going to Rhode Island, whereas she has not let either of her jets to be logged for two entire weeks. Only the TH flight was logged on plane finder. So far, it's an unofficial pap walk. Like, when TS lent TH her Toyota Sequoia jeep and driver for comic con. And TH was professionally photographed at the four season transferring belongings from her jeep to his Marvel jeep before heading the LAX for NYC. It's all a game. And I think THs meeting with Marvel, his lawyers, business manager was a game changer of sorts.
For those who just want to watch the notorious 48hr back to Oz nod, it's at 1:03 in the video.
He clearly nods and smiles in agreement. Much nodding, much smiling.
OMG! Has anyone sees this on Sugar's Tea!! The whole thing with TH was staged! He never left LA, apparently!!
The video, filmed by Splash News, shows Taylor walking around and heading up into the jet. Taylor appears to have no idea that she is being photographed. It is clear that she is not excitedly meeting up with a friend, family member, or a fake boyfriend. She is just walking around casually and emotionless.
>>897 The only thing that's clear is that Tom wasn't on the jet when it got to RI.
>>896 Sorry I missed your link anonsy!! Anonsy rocks!
>>899 Thank you anonsy. I type too fast. He never left LA for Rhode Island on the TS jet. The news is just making me too confused!
>>897 This is getting really weird now. And we know this jet of hers hasn't left Rhode Island since coming back from LA, right? If this post's sleuth work adds up then that means Tom never got on the jet and it literally flew for no reason other than to make the fandoms following this believe he's in Rhode Island with her. Literally sending her jet on a wild goose run for absolutely no good reason other than to throw people off.
I just glanced at THs IG account (which is still struggling to reach 1mil). Since such a hullabaloo has been made over the mutual follow with TS I decided to check how many of his 17 friends have followed back.
The answer is 4; TS, Ruffalo, RDJ and JVR
>>901 The whole thing is getting really bizarre and unnecessarily desperate now. This looks really pathetic and embarrassing for the two.
>>902 Whether or not it was ever real, I think they're done with each other and just keeping it going until the right time to "break up."
Pulling such an elaborate jetscapade is only worthwhile if picked up by the media. Who gives a flying beep what fans think? I'm still not sold.
>>906 The pictures of him getting on the jet were just released today. Maybe the Daily Mail or someone will run them tomorrow.
>>906 Okay, I've been wondering how TH has able to hold his tongue all this time without yelling at TS. When they started this "relationship", TH assumed he would get wonderful press about the romance with a beloved pop princess, and a mainstream fan base in the US marketing industry. Instead, TS probably never said she was under assault from the Kardashians, and that there was a video where she lied to the world about the Famous lyrics! And, his entire Emmy award narrative has been sucked up completely into her scandal, and her image recovery from Team Kimye. Plus, we had the heart tank top situation. And now, TH was not on the Swift plane when it arrived in RH! This could mean that TH wouldn't agree to just play nice in Watch Hill for a few days for the fans and press, even if they were never photographed! He could have just read, and prepared for work in a beautiful mansion! How, if he is this angry, did TH get through that night at Hillstone restaurant? Wow! Maybe RADA training works after all!
Does this conspiracy theory conclude that he did in fact leave for Oz Sunday eve as predicted? If so, they must have also delayed those airport pap pix.
I don't understand- why invite paps to record him getting on a flight to RI that contradicts leaving for Oz if he did in fact leave for Oz.
>>905 It's starting to look that way. What looks probable to you for when they will announce the breakup ten or hint towards it? After VMAs and Emmy voting is done?
They haven't been seen together since Santa Monica so it is plausible it is all over. I still can't get over how weird this whole jet thing is. Truly sad. Sending a whole goddamn jet from IL to CA just to fake pap in front of it. Really truly sad.
>>910 I think it will end some time after Emmy voting ends, but before the Emmys, so... first week of September will be my guess.
>>909 Apparently TH just tweeted about the SAG interviews 46 minutes ago. Not sure if he's in Australia or LA. It's a mystery!
>>912 Or he's up late. It's not abnormal to burn the midnight oil when you don't have an early start the next day.
Another angle on this plane video;
Going back to the pics of TH getting on the jet, does it have a door on ech side? If so, indulge me for a moment: when I first saw his pics I thought it was not TS's jet because several of the pics have wheel covers on what looks like a much smaller plane, like a 4 - 6 seater. Then I realized it was another plane next to TS's jet.
>>913 It seemed like the person shooting the video was specifically trying to get footage of Tom, and they were certain he wasn't there. Otherwise why include that information in the video description?
>>911 Makes sense that he wouldn't want any negative press during final Emmy voting. Barely made it to one and a half month before ending things then. Kimye was the final nail I'm guessing.
>>913 He could've missed him getting off the plane but if he was still there in one of the cars or something, he would've seen it. The photog seemed to be there to catch a shot of the couple together.
>>903 Hemsworth hasn't followed back? Curious. But his IG's debut fiasco does say something else. TH has 3 mil. of twitter followers, more on fb, even if half that were fake accounts he should have more followers on IG. Which means that people might be talking about him now, but that doesn't mean they like him.
>>917 Good God, the Swiftie cult is insane. Jetanon got death threats the other night after that blog sent her horde over there.
From what I am inferring, the pictures were taken on Saturday to create the illusion that he left LA on Taylor's jet to go see her in RI, but a contradictory sighting in a different location would blow it, so the pictures have to be held temporarily until Tom gets back into hiding at the Four Seasons or wherever. Once a reasonable amount of time has passed that Tom could theoretically have gone to RI and gotten back to wherever he really is (in the event of a legitimate fan or pap sighting), the pictures are released.
Weren't there photos of someone putting TH's suitacases on the plane? That's a lot of trouble to go through.
>>914 In the video you see TS first getting on the plane, then walking into view from the right.
>>919 They are as insane as their idol. Then again, TH is no better since he is going along with it.
It does makes sense but it seems very complicated, when it would have been easier for TS to fly to LA and be seen in the city. Everyone would have assumed they were together.
>>918 No wonder he panicked and friended his loyal fans on twitter. I think it was deliberate that he waited a few days before friending anyone- a test to see how many fans he had aside from Swifties. Post friending Tay, he has gained another 250k which is 1/4 his entire fanbase.
Those are some disappointing figures, not to mention he's oddly unpopular amongst those he considers 'friends'.
>>923 I don't want to jinx anything, b/c new RH lovey dovey couple pics would be so odd to see. But I feel that when TS raced back from Nashville to Burbank after one day, the day that TH spent in NYC (with his lawyers and his manager) that Hillstone restaurant pap walk was one of her last chances to stunt in that specific and public a way. I'm not sure that Team TH is open to more pap walks. 1. People think that they're coupledom is a hoax that its just about publicity, 2. and TH can't look but so frivolous to serious voters for the Emmy campaign.
>>920 In 914 I am referring to the TH pics, not the TS video. I'll have to make circles around what I was referring to. I was trying to find out how he might have gotten away from the fake flight pap.
So let me get this straight:
a) TH faked getting on the return flight to RI, TS inspected the refurbished pimpmobile on arrival in RI while TH was in hiding for reasons unknown in LA and will magic carpet ride back to Oz.
DailyMail reported on those pics as Tom leaving LA for Australia alone a private jet: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3742991/Flying-solo-Tom-Hiddleston-flies-LA-stumbles-question-romance-Taylor-Swift.html
So maybe he did take a different private F900 to either Hawaii or SF and then took a flight from there to Oz. Would a F900 make the whole flight to Australia?
"Tom Hiddleston Being Put On The Spot About Taylor Is Awkward AF"
What.The.Fuck.Is.Going.On? That's all I've got.
So perhaps, TS just sent her N898TS plane from the midwest, to Burbank, to Groton as a fool's errand, so that her fans could think TH had possibly visited her for a day in RH? Meanwhile, TH boarded a private plane by himself for Brisbane, via Hawaii perhaps for a fuel stop? They held the photos of TH at Burbank to make a feigned Watch Hill trip seem plausible to her fans, while TH has actually been back in Australia since sometime Monday, maybe? And TH held off tweeting till Tuesday in Australia around 2pm-ish? But the pap video at Groton shows that TH was never in RH. BTW, who was the M person here who first provided the TH pics at Burbank and said it was a love story? Was that you Tree Paine? : ) If it is, I think you would look phenomenal with former fashion editor Taylor Tomasi-Hill's red hair color! It would work on you! She lists her stylist in an interview online!
>>933 The N8 or N6 is on the white plane in the background.
>>931 No, M is one of us (despite her Bond-esque moniker!!).
>>934 I hang my head in shame hahaha I've so little interest left that I can't even peruse a photo anymore.
>>935 M, I'm so sorry I didn't know you! I love James Bond films. Cool name. BTW, Tree Paine, if you're out there, that was a heartfelt beauty suggestion. Taylor Tomasi-Hill's bolder colour red hair would look great on you! TTH knows Anna Wintour and her head to style is amazing! Back to the subject at hand.
>>937 If this thing is real (probability: who the fuck knows anymore!) and if it goes the distance (probability: low), I'm hoping Taylor Tomasi Hiddleston Swift is the name of their first child...or joint cat.
Ha ha! Please please don't bring Taylor Tomasi-Hill into the Swift cat game names! Taylor Tomasi-Hill is a lovely wife, mother, and the former style-accessories director for Marie Claire and Conde Nast, as well as the former fashion editor for Teen Vogue years ago. Now, she owns her own floral arrangement business called TTH Blooms, that provides the bouquets for all the new York fashion events, and private parties in the fashion industry. The clothes she wears are amazingly and unique, if you're into fashion! And she wears a signature red hair dye colour that is out of this world! Sorry to digress!
>>931 BTW, if TH left on a private plane for Australia on Saturday, then the "back in Australia in 48 hrs" comment from the SAG interviewer was a true statement! Maybe TH is a truth teller after all! Yay! A possible petit redemption.
>>931 If he wasn't on the plane to RI and got a private flight on a F900 (two F900s did leave for Hawaii and San Francisco from Burbank on Sun, not my findings though) then he probably did go to Oz. I dont know if any private F900s left from LA on Sun, the pics did say LA. I don't know why she'd send her plane to Burbank other than it needed something from here or that she made it make a useless trip to make her fans think Tom is with her right now. That's IF he did leave for Oz.
>>941 Do you know which Hawaii airport the jet flew into from Burbank?
>>942 Unfortunately I don't. But I do know the people researching this were pulling up this info from flightaware. I wasn't talking any of these people directly though so it's all forum eavesdropping lol
F900 is in the air right now.
It took off from RI and is flying towards Nashville.
>>946 I just looked at it on planefinder. It's landing in Nashville.
FYI, the Swift plane just disappeared over Nashville (BNA). So prepare for Nashville pap pics if TH is there. Also, so sorry M. I apologize unreservedly for assuming that you were a Bond fan. And 'm so sorry that I did not recognize you as a long time poster!
>>948 It just took off from Nashville again and it's flying to Burbank.
>>949 They're going to Oz together. The thirsty couple is still going strong! Same craziness going to Oz I'm assuming now.
>>950 Nah, I think it dropped her off in Nashville. Plus I'm still not sure if I believe Tom even took that flight to RI in the first place.
>>949 My goodness! Is that remark about TS or TH?! So now TH is supposedly on the Swift plane, and he's going to land at Burbank, and then at some point get papped going through LAX on the way to a commercial flight to Brisbane, so that we "know" that they spent saucy time together this weekend in RH? Or maybe TH is already in Oz? So odd. It's a like disappearing act! Btw, there is a new TS and Karlie dailymail article.
Tom Tom Hiddleston Breakdown: Actor Admits Taylor Swift Relationship Induces Stress Breakdown: Actor Admits Stress In Taylor Swift Relationship | Celeb Dirty Laundry
Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift’s ‘summer in the spotlight’ might be coming to an end. The Hollywood actor recently hinted that the pressure of being Taylor Swift’s boyfriend might be getting to him, as he’s simply not used to being in the celebrity spotlight with the tabloid media following his every move.
>>952 The originating article is behind The Times's impregnable paywall. But here is a summary from VF: Karlie says her best friends are her sister and her mum! There was a better summary I can't now find saying she isn't really BFF with TS. http://www.vanityfair.com/style/2016/08/karlie-kloss-kim-kardashian-comment
Wow, also, TH could have been in LA all this time, and will leave for Brisbane soon, via a commercial plane and be papped at LAX, implying that he was with TS in RH. This is getting dark...They're attempting Game of Thrones level of scheming, however, I don't think that Tree Paine is as good as Petyr Baelish : )

There's so much tinfoil hatting going on here I've quite literally run out and am debating whether to replace it.
>>957 that's what I was trying to say earlier in >>914, he got on the plane in burbank for the pap, and got off the plane, possibly on the other side of the aircraft. The pic I referenced showed another plane on the other side of TS's jet, that he could have slipped into, either to go somewhere else or just sit until the paps left, then go back to the hotel.
On the other hand, as Anonon pointed out, it's not the simplest of explanations.
>>958 I'd agree except for that video from the RI airport.
>>961 He was in her car on the tarmac completely emasculated, so she went back on the plane looking for his balls?
What I find suspicious about that video is that it covers a minutiae moment at the end of a long disembark. They have so little footage they repeat it three times. Surely if they saw more they would have filmed more
>>962 HA. Everyone knows his balls have already been turned into cat toys.
And I'm wrapped in so much tinfoil I can now power my entire block with solar energy if I sit outside for ten minutes.
>>962 The jumpy video editing is probably Taylor first telling Tom to stay inside the jet and then later she sent her guards to make a deal with the paps to not reveal anything about Tom. She must have promised Splash news some sort of exclusive. Her PR is pretty heavy handed and we've all seen how her mind works so I'm sure she's got this whole thing figured out in her benefit. And Tom is in her bubble loving that lavish lifestyle and freeloading off her.
>>964 For what purpose would she hide Tom? Why would they not want people to think he was visiting her in RI?
I'm having a giggle going through the Buzzfeed comments.
My fav so far about the awkward af question:
'The "question" was obviously a backhanded comment on the perceived secrecy around this goofy relationship. Asking a seasoned actor what he's learned is clearly saying, "you probably should have known better, welcome to being a celebrity, feel stupid yet?" And based on his weird response I'm going to say...yes. Yes he do.'
>>964 That's the thing. I don't know lol The whole thing makes no sense to me. Why bother getting papped at the airport then have your gf keep it secret? Why say 48hrs to Oz then get yourself papped getting on your gf's plane? They could've broken up and that's why this weirdness but that jumpy badly edited video is very suspect. Because of that I'm leaning more towards this all being PR more than real. Real couples who love courting publicity wouldn't go this far with stunting.
i just parked RIGJT NEXT TO TOM HIDDLESTON AT LAX AND HE WAS SOOO NICE
So he was in RI and has just been dropped off to catch his flight to Oz. Conspiracy dead. Relationship maybe real. Sounds like he's alone too
>>968 Come now, we don't know from that he was in RI from that. Also don't forget the mile-long fake relationship checklist from the last two months. Even if he was in RI it doesn't mean it's real.
>>969 Pretend my grammar wasn't terrible when you read this.
'I saw @twhiddleston at the airport ✈️✌🏾️❤️😍 he was so sweet and genuinely sorry for declining a photo; didn't want to cause a scene.'
>>969 Oh I promise I will never forget! They are still cheap famewhores who sold themselves for tabloid headlines to a degree I have never witnessed in my life.
>>971 Does Westerly, RI have a Four Seasons for Tom to stay in?
>>971 The mansion's so fucking huge they could've avoided each other the whole time!
Honestly, even though I kinda despise her, she has mansions, private planes and an inflatable water slide. That's heaps of fun for two days. She's the poster girl for hedonism and if you're into being shallow she's a dream come true.
>>973 Questions I need help answering:
>>974 Calm yo tits.
Nobody here has any inside knowledge, just like nobody here is Tree Paine disguised as a Bond character who actually dislikes Bond films.
It's a board of friendly speculation and banter.
I have no answers, only conjecture and I will happily eat my shorts if I am wrong.
Wow! The Dailymail is not allowing comments on the TS Louisiana donation article at all! And although TH is listed as her beau and mentions him filming Thor, there are no TH or cou[;e pics in the whole article! Maybe we've reached the end of new couple pics...
>>975 Anonon, I officially need "co yo tits" as a bumper sticker, b/c I love that phrase! BTW, you should know that I apologized profusely to M already. And, so sorry for the bizarre questions. I have no real info either. But there are a lot facts that don't make sense. I guess my wheels are just spinning in the mud trying to figure this couple out, and perhaps that's impossible. And if TH finally got control over his Emmy campaign back from TS, bully for him. So so sorry, and the RH video is still weird in my book.
>>977 Enough sorry, Sosorry.
I recommend approaching this mess from a tinfoil free perspective first and then once things really don't add up (which is fairly often), slowly start wrapping in foil. Sometimes there is a foil- free explanation worth taking into consideration.
Amid the tinfoil I am not sure anyone posted the latest gem from DListed: http://dlisted.com/2016/08/15/tom-hiddleston-wants-you-to-know-there-are-a-lot-of-false-stories-out-there-about-totay/
'@twhiddleston thanks for being so sweet at LAX. glad no paps bothered you 😘'
If this is correct, he wasn't papped at LAX for the first time since the day TayTo announced their love to the worlds media.
Eating my shorts Part 1:
'PUTANGINA I HAVE A SELFIE WITH TOM HIDDLESTON'
>>982 So he resisted a fan selfie for 1 ask then caved in! Don't eat your shorts yet.
I cannot for a minute believe that there won't be a People "They had a fond PRIVATE farewell, they will miss each other so much" article. She was capable of this even with CH which didn't look like a stunt relationship and she has already laid the ground with the pap pics at Burbank.
>>979 I finally just now got around to watching the part of the video where he answers the question about his "summer in the spotlight," and WOW he was so awkward it made me physically uncomfortable. I was peeking through my fingers like it was a horror movie.
>>983 When that inevitable People article comes out, we need to, um... remember the uh, how should I say it, um......... uh...... let me give you a proper response. Ummm................................ there are, uh, falsehoods. And camera phones. Because, um, Tom is a public figure.
Someone on tumblr noticed that the photos of Tom at Taylor's jet in Burbank were taken by TayTo's favorite "paparazzi" agency The Image Direct. In case anyone had doubts that those were staged.
>>984 It was even more painful watching it live. Seeing him squirm. I could feel the sweat coming through my computer screen.
Here's the selfie from the airport:
Let me see if I have the latest chapter of this soap-opera right:
TH took a private jet (almost identical to TS's jet) on Sat. somewhere in California, when at the same time TS's jet was in Burbank.
TS's jet left that same day for RI.
TH is not seen for 3 days.
>>990 YASS! Although I think the theory is that he hid in LA rather than jumped on another plane. Also her jet flew back to Nashville again after Burbank.
This extraordinarily elaborate, expensive and time wasting scenario is only plausible if they detest each other so much they cannot fathom spending 3 days together.
This whole thing is so exhausting. I think he did get on that plane and stay with her in RI. But I don't get why
>>983 This weekend could go a few ways. I personally think he got on the plane and was with her in RI. Maybe the pap who shot the video missed filming TH because he thought the haggard, shaking and sweaty man who got off was the baggage handler and not TH going to be reunited with The One/Future Mother of His Children!! Considering how TH looks whenever he's around her, that's a likely case of mistaken identity.
"Taylor Swift a.k.a the queen of relationships has cold feet!
After starting a hot and heavy romance with actor Tom Hiddleston shortly after calling it quits with Calvin Harris, a source exclusively reveals to In Touch that after accidentally finding a diamond ring in the Thor actor's drawer, the singer is now hesitant to accept his hand in marriage."
*but it's fun
Have mercy guys, my English skills are on holiday with me.
The only reason to pay off the RI pap to not release video of Tom is if he managed to get footage of a very businesslike reunion. If Tom got off that plane and Taylor greeted him with a handshake, or not at all, that's something they wouldn't want anyone to see.
>>995 As if he's been given his own drawer at any of her properties!
I'm not going to click because they don't deserve it, but did the article say what Miss Swift was doing rummaging through his drawers? Was she picking out his underwear for the day?
>>998 No, it does not, but it says that TS has decided that she has to make a decision by the end of Aug.
