In a way, because I found ELLEUK interview enjoyable too in a different way, but in this TimeOut interview he sounds a lot more direct and honest.

207 Name: yep : 2014-02-11 17:43 ID:2sM5vKfp

So nothing new

208 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-11 18:08 ID:61YAJI1Z

Well, he addressed the subject of the school more forcefully than before, he scolded his obsessive fans for burdening him with their own perceptions and fantasies and as a consequence, he gave up (that how it seemed to me) on trying to show his private self, because anyway his fans won't believe him or whatever.

Also, he said shit and they didn't edit it and he isn't that eager to be called for Star Wars! haha

But yeah, nothing really new.

209 Name: yep : 2014-02-11 23:08 ID:Y2OPM2xu

"Do the work, enjoy the work, take it seriously, don’t take yourself seriously and keep your head down. Nobody else needs to know anything more and - in a way - they really don’t want to" he was talking about private life? Really I don't get it

"Do the work, enjoy the work, take it seriously, don’t take yourself seriously and keep your head down. Nobody else needs to know anything more and - in a way - they really don’t want to" he was talking about private life? Really I don't get it

211 Name: yep : 2014-02-11 23:17 ID:Y2OPM2xu

Sorry for double post, wi-fi problems

212 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-02-12 00:15 ID:ADiLWuR9

He is saying that he's decided to keep quiet about his private life and just do the job he's paid to do--act. Be serious about his work and enjoy his time off, while still being quiet and responsible. He doesn't think he should talk about his private life to the public, because it's none of the public's business, and they'll get upset no matter what he says--to put his words bluntly.

213 Name: yep : 2014-02-12 00:44 ID:2sM5vKfp

Oh well thank you

214 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-12 08:12 ID:ixW+OI2n

high quality scan of Time Out interview here

Yes, like >>212 said not only he is saying his private life it's his business, but also that even if he says something fans will make of it what they want so there's no point in being honest about it. In a matter of months he went from saying "there was nothing home to write about but he hope he would be able to when the time comes" to clearly stating he was single to saying "Nobody else needs to know anything more and - in a way - they really don’t want to".
I think he noticed that in the end it's better to link his fans to his work.

215 Name: yep : 2014-02-12 09:02 ID:2sM5vKfp

>>214 like: I told you "there was nothing home to write about" but no one believe me

Seems like Coriolanus didn't disappoint to go out without some bizarre fan behavior. I wonder how many of them will also stalk him to/in Toronto.

219 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-14 08:15 ID:Yep/dliN

You know, it's not the fact that she smeared her ticket that I find creepy, it's the fact that she felt the need to post a pic of it on the internet. I mean if you want a memento for yourself, original as it might be, fine, but making a show of it...creepy!

I have no doubt they'll do their best trying to spot him and stalk him. I read about fans planning to screen any pics of him surfacing the net to geotag his position?!

I hope he'll be too busy with the film and with planning High Rise to be found.

220 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-14 08:24 ID:Yep/dliN

I was reading Jim Beaver's last post, aside from revealing his role he wrote production has a long weekend off and I was wondering if after all TH might attend BAFTA.

221 Name: yep : 2014-02-14 08:30 ID:2sM5vKfp

I don't think so

222 Name: yep : 2014-02-14 09:26 ID:2sM5vKfp

Oh Dear

223 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-14 11:44 ID:Yep/dliN

>>222 Can't say I'm surprised, I've always thought that all the theatre staff was having a lot of fun behind these fangirls behaviour. They managed to take their money while watching them making fool of themselves and annoying the very object of their adoration.

224 Name: yep : 2014-02-16 12:14 ID:2sM5vKfp


So he's still in london?

225 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-16 12:37 ID:wLcFZrLq

Maybe he'll leave today for Toronto? In one of Jim Beaver's post, he wrote Jessica would be starting to work from Monday.
Unless he doesn't. He isn't listed among the attendees for BAFTA.

226 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-02-16 14:30 ID:cdfMizA7

I heard he flies out today before the BAFTAs


227 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-16 15:10 ID:wLcFZrLq

Better this way.

228 Name: yep : 2014-02-17 17:43 ID:2sM5vKfp

So now, according to tumbrl "good fans police", everyone take a picture with him is a stalker

That's one nice present! lol
Has the man left for Toronto or not?

231 Name: yep : 2014-02-17 19:12 ID:2sM5vKfp

yes he did

232 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-17 19:17 ID:mVmApYxc

>>231 Don't tell me, somebody took a pic and that's why tumblr police is agitated?

233 Name: yep : 2014-02-17 19:19 ID:2sM5vKfp

somebody took a pic at airport and...madness!!

234 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-02-17 21:12 ID:ADiLWuR9

Tumblr is ridiculous with their self-righteousness. You can't control other people's actions, so why worry about them so much, and hound someone who doesn't do exactly as you say? I'm not encouraging obsessive, fangirl behavior by any means, but I'd say Tom is a big boy who can handle himself and should be expecting people taking pictures of him (not saying he likes it--it should just be expected, and I'm sure it is). Tumblr should cool it; aggressively blogging about it isn't going to change anything. It just makes people like me laugh about their condescending attitude.

235 Name: yep : 2014-02-18 10:56 ID:2sM5vKfp

They say Tom it's not fans property but then they treat him like a their possessions that needs to be defended. Insane

236 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-18 11:05 ID:tz6KSPR1

Expecting moderation by a fandom on tumblr is out of question, they make a drama or give extra meaning to the most insignificant things.

I'd say it's much worse a person who follows him out of the theatre to the tube than somebody asking for a photo, at least the second can be refused or replaced with an autograph. It seems like they don't realize he is a grown man, 33 years old, not some boy in need of their protection.

When nobody will post pics of him anymore for fear of an internet aggression, they'll probably complain about the lack of news.

237 Name: nicknack : 2014-02-18 14:16 ID:O8tbL8A6

I quite like the shit it stirs up in the fandom (I hate that word) when someone attempts to wade in and tries to educate everyone about fan etiquette. The amount of overreacting is so staggering you can only laugh at it all. I'm sure Tom is beyond giving a shit at this point (well, until Thor 3 - if he's in it, when he might need them all back for marketing purposes).
The best ones are the white-knights who come up with these charitable endeavors to make amends and convince Tom "we're not all like that". So far we have a fundraising appeal for the Donmar Warehouse, a blood drive (organised under the pretense that it was done for his birthday but is primarily because this particular fan is desperate for Tom's attention) and a letter of apology currently being drawn up by a small group of fans because some people stood in an airport arrival lounge to get a picture with Tom and they feel this has brought the fandom into disrepute.

238 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-18 14:27 ID:tz6KSPR1

>>237 a blood drive?! Tell me they are going to do it on OLLA release day! lol
Doesn't that goes again the TH commandment "I'm not the one that makes you do things"?

On the bright side, the more they do this the more ground they give him to start saying no.

239 Name: yep : 2014-02-18 16:17 ID:2sM5vKfp

Honestly, it's his fault too, he's just followed a fangirl who send him an apology twitter

240 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-18 17:00 ID:tz6KSPR1

That's from a few days ago, I have a feeling is another of his twitter blunders. But yeah, there was some encouragement on his part.

241 Name: yep : 2014-02-18 17:12 ID:2sM5vKfp

Blunders? Maybe he really needs help as his fans think

242 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-18 17:39 ID:tz6KSPR1

or a smartphone with a larger display

243 Name: yep : 2014-02-18 17:45 ID:2sM5vKfp

>>242 Yes Tom, throw away your iPhone and buy a samsung

244 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-02-18 19:27 ID:ADiLWuR9

Yeah, I get the feeling he Tweet stalks. It's really easy to follow someone you don't mean to on the iPhone app if you're just reading their tweet and/or scrolling past; I do it all the time. He can't unfollow her now, or there will be major drama. Poor guy.

245 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-18 21:01 ID:tz6KSPR1

He'll probably do it when he notices it, i.e. the next time he adds a new follower and suddenly realizes he added her.
Like he did for his favourites.

246 Name: anonsy : 2014-02-19 06:26 ID:BwV53iSd

Tom Hiddleston, Elle UK Man of the Year. He couldn't be there to accept the award, so they recorded a video acceptance. The general consensus seems to be that he's slightly inebriated. I'm also curious about that bandaid on his head...

247 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-19 07:34 ID:k2hXT879

More than slightly I'd say.
I imagine this was recorded in Toronto? He had the band aid in the pics at the airport, pimple?

248 Name: anonsy : 2014-02-19 08:19 ID:BwV53iSd

It'd have to be a pretty serious pimple to require that big of a bandaid! I think it was recorded before he left London, probably not long after he acquired the mysterious forehead booboo, because the bandaid in the video is much larger than the bandaid he had on his head in the fan pictures from the Toronto airport. Maybe on the last night of Coriolanus someone decided to actually hit him during the fight scenes.

249 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-19 08:29 ID:k2hXT879

Oh true, didn't pay attention to the bandaid size.
Well, ELLE UK writes there's a nice story behind that plaster,knowing ELLE UK they'll do another article with him just to tell us.

This man social life though, a night spent in a hotel room with ELLE staff, lol

250 Name: anonsy : 2014-02-19 09:46 ID:BwV53iSd

Jeez, can't Elle ever just come out and say anything? We have to have a teaser about the bandaid, then probably like a dozen tweets about it over the course of the next couple weeks, and then they'll tell us to "stay tuned until the April issue of Elle UK for the full exclusive story!" Then everyone will speculate that the bandaid is actually hiding his secret girlfriend (or that the bandaid IS his secret girlfriend!), and they'll make "Tom's Bandaid" twitter accounts, and then we'll wait all the way until April only to find out that he like... I don't know, left his kitchen cabinet open and walked into the door or something totally not even that exciting.

251 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-19 12:04 ID:k2hXT879

Why when he says his age he always says "year young" instead of "years old"? Is it an English peculiarity or his own? Out of....modesty?

>>250 haha, we joke but that's very possibly what's going to happen.

252 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-02-19 13:18 ID:ADiLWuR9

It has begun.


253 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-19 15:38 ID:k2hXT879

Somebody should tell them their sense of humour is lost.
Anyway, here's the story of the plaster.

254 Name: yep : 2014-02-19 15:54 ID:2sM5vKfp

Oh interesting! Tell us more Elle uk. Goodness I like him, I think he's talented, intelligent and funny in a dork way. But this liaison with Elle it's too much "circus bear" for my taste

255 Name: yep : 2014-02-20 19:10 ID:2sM5vKfp

anyone has seen OLLA?

Personally, great actors and music but kind a lame script, and one other thing doesn't convince me but I dont' want to spoiler

256 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-02-20 21:52 ID:ADiLWuR9

I've seen it. A lot of things weren't explained, which I found odd and felt left out at times, but I think Tom and Tilda had very good chemistry.

257 Name: yep : 2014-02-21 08:43 ID:2sM5vKfp

Tom and Tilda chemestry is, with the music, all the film, imho

259 Name: Couch Potato : 2014-02-23 14:19 ID:cdfMizA7

He actually sounds good there. Amazing what studio magic can do, because, according to various interviews and occasions, he can't really sing live well at all. Haha. Also, it figures that he (as posh sounding as he is) is one that doesn't "change" or "lose" parts of his accent when he sings (such as Adele, Olivia Newton-John, and his friend Eddie Redmayne to an extent, etc.). His poshness is still there, which is kind of funny, because he seems to hate it sometimes.

260 Name: anonymous : 2014-02-23 14:49 ID:XT9Rlf8t

Very posh pirate, haha.
The song isn't exactly challenging, clearly auto-tune helped a great deal with those higher notes at the beginning and even so it's not perfect.

It fits with what I read of the plot in an interview with GDT (I wonder why Cumberbatch turned it down though), I hope they'll do a good job with it, Pacific Rim was a big let down in terms of script and plot.

It is isn't it? I have only seen Coriolanus, so I can't judge, but I remember reading good reviews about Jude Law's Henry V and Rory Kinnear's Othello.

283 Name: yep : 2014-03-11 11:20 ID:H2p1hJnL

I have seen Coriolanus an Othello (both in cinema) but I've read Jude Law's Henry V is epic

284 Name: anonymous : 2014-03-13 11:57 ID:zSzSSB4b

Apparently a lot of theatre goers aren't very happy with the nominations. I do hope they put him there because the panel thought his performance was that good, not just to appeal to the media. It'd be unfair to him, Law or Gatiss if that's the only reason behind their nominations.

Of course, considering TH following habit, it might be nothing, it's difficult to tell with him sometime haha

He favourited this:

I guess he is happy Pirate Fairy is doing well.

(latest TH's tweets)

I think it's fair to say that he will attend.

292 Name: yep : 2014-03-17 10:25 ID:A+75tmuY

He did it again, he subscribed a fan account. He'll never learn (or it's not him who manages his account)

293 Name: anonymous : 2014-03-17 11:30 ID:i5sUREb7

>>292 Some of this followings are indeed strange enough to make you think somebody else manages his account (richard burton, really? haha).

But the tweets are his own and I can't believe that he wouldn't notice new followings. I know he isn't a computer nerd but if he managed to notice and clean his favourites, he could do the same here.
It's a bit of a stretch to think he followed them by mistake and now he doesn't want to offend them by unfollowing them, right?

Then again, this girl didn't tweet to him, she doesn't mention his account when she tweets something about him, she doesn't only tweet about him either so how did he even find out about her that he would start following her?

294 Name: yep : 2014-03-17 12:26 ID:A+75tmuY

No, it's not a bit of a stretch, but it's just happened a lot of times (poor Hiddy):D
