A few tweets coming through about HR being at BFI-LFF, but no confirmation until next week. We shall see.

Wow we have buzzed through an entire thread in a month. Anon., remember when you wondered if he would still be with EO by the end of the thread? Well he is. Or isn't. Bwahahaha!

5 Name: anonymous : 2015-08-27 14:43 ID:L5RlQINp


And ... .3 - 2 - 1 ... here come the posts where he is 100% definately not with her that (insert expletive of your choice) hussy from America etc etc etc.

But seriously - only he and his beloved (or not) know.

Facing the facts, his longest and most enduring relationship thus far is with one W. Shakespeare esq.

To pick up on the previous actor discussion:

I would say neither BW or ER are good comparisons with TH:

BW is an actor's actor - straight up; boy's got chops! But he prefers small parts - all of his upcoming parts are small/supporting roles - and stage work. That's how he keeps his private life, private - he doesn't play the movie star/fame game.

ER is actually behind TH in terms of 'movie star fame.' Yes, I know he has an Oscar, and his people wrangled an OBE for him because of that Oscar, but he was staring in TV mini-series and supporting parts in movies like Les Miserables and The Other Boleyn Girl when TH was doing Thor(s), Avengers, The Hollow Crown. ER's first major staring screen role just happened to be a big hit - and rightly so - with critics. So, it was like he catapulted over the fame game into the 'I'm a serious actor' job. Movies like Thor and Avengers require an actor to play the fame game - as TH did in S. Korea. Movies like TToE don't. I mean, TH is strutting around in horns with a scepter - he's going to get 'Were you feeling horny?' and 'Tell me about your big scepter.' questions. ER was in a wheelchair for most of his movie, he's not going to be asked to sing and dance or do impressions of Chris Evans.

Neither BW or ER want to or had/need to play the fame game. TH needed to for his movies. And maybe he wanted/wants to in pursuit of attention and approval - two things he likes very much.

What TH needs is a part like ER's in TToE - a part where he doesn't need to do the silly things he did on the Avengers or Thor 2 press tours. I think we thought that was going to be ISTL, but Pap Night '15 may have scuppered that - I don't know. I'm still hoping it - and HR - can earn him some acting cred.

(I hate it when my posts end up looking like book chapters.)

7 Name: Anon. : 2015-08-27 14:57 ID:Jm4DPMnp

>>4 Well, technically, I never said they were 'together' - I've got just as much idea as the rest of us outsiders about that hazy, hot mess of a relationship!

But since she's not in London anymore, and he has to take his books on lunch dates, I guess she didn't outlast the thread!

But I know what did and always will outlast every thread from here to the END OF TIME...Pap Night '15. Never forget, never forget.

8 Name: Anon : 2015-08-27 15:06 ID:ACqKSePP

I've had taxi rides that were a hot mess. That was just a mess.

9 Name: EO, I mean Anon. : 2015-08-27 15:07 ID:Jm4DPMnp

I know from an inside source that he is definitely still with EO!!

Their relationship is getting serious - via Skype and text. He's ready to settle down and have kids and so am I, I mean, so is she.

PS - I've heard really good things about ISTL and EO's performance in it.

10 Name: lex : 2015-08-27 15:25 ID:+/jgLHPZ

>>9 impossible. Audrey was a dreadful singer so is EO. plus this Audrey was a rather nasty bitchy personality so I'm kinda glad they picked a bitch to play bitch lol.

'Yeah, we're going home to BONE - and bone hard - whatcha gonna do?! Laters, haters!'

If EO had done this, I don't think we'd have that pic of TH getting into his own car alone. Girl, you played the wrong cards. Next time, you'll know better.

22 Name: anonsy : 2015-08-28 06:56 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>20 Yeah, she's probably mistaken. I think it's a little early for him to be there, and there haven't actually been any sightings.

23 Name: anonsy : 2015-08-28 06:59 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>23 oh great! I've heard that he wasn't going to be in that movie, so that's why I was so confused. but duh. the article that uses bustle as a reference... the only thing I liked is about Tom and Purseface lol. the only truth (half true) in that.

>>20 >>22 Oh, we will know. There will be four sightings at Heathrow, a few on the plane, and then plenty from Toronto.

I hope that when he arrives he recreates the pap shots from CP filming - the ones where he was looking fierce in an absolutely unnecessary jacket.

Work it, TH...while, of course, being all about THE WORK.

27 Name: lex : 2015-08-28 16:16 ID:E5uqGJaS

>>26 you mean forgetting wearing his underwear? that's definitely not a fold of the cloth lol. oh, Thomas...

28 Name: lex : 2015-08-28 18:19 ID:E5uqGJaS

ah so there is a new "source" that told them she got there after the Paris fashion week to meet him. I wonder why the Purseface wasn't seen with him immediately and wasn't taken to Wimbledon. not good and smart enough.

people can't get tired of this bullshit...

29 Name: Anon : 2015-08-28 18:47 ID:ACqKSePP

>>28 not I think a new source but a rehash of the US Weekly story.

30 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-08-28 18:49 ID:Heaven

The closer we get to ISTL's first red carpet, the more "articles" of this kind we are going to get. Hardly surprising.
The comments are a must-read.

31 Name: Anon : 2015-08-28 18:50 ID:ACqKSePP

>>26 My absolute fave from Toronto is this one of him checking himself out in a window!

32 Name: lex : 2015-08-28 19:13 ID:E5uqGJaS

>>30 sadly some of them are right. I myself know at least ten fans excluding myself who won't see the movie with the Purseface in it, and there are more. I believe Tom was caught in Purseface PR game and there will be no even friendship between them, but it affects him badly. and it's sad.

33 Name: Anon. : 2015-08-28 19:30 ID:g7mIS63y

>>31 He's probably thinking, 'Geez, I know this was a freebie from Jessica's bf, but it's shite.'

He looks a little ridiculous with the huge jacket and his toothpick-thin leg. Fitted, skinny-boy, fitted.

34 Name: Anon : 2015-08-28 19:40 ID:ACqKSePP

>>33 He and casual style are not best friends.

35 Name: Anon. : 2015-08-28 19:52 ID:g7mIS63y

Anon is correct - Franchise Herald is one of those click-bait,online-only sites that rehash articles from other sources. Others are Venture Post, Christian Daily? - there are a lot of them.

Unfortunately, some people think that these articles = TH or EO PR at work. Not the case. We can debate about US Weekly/Just Jared and even the DM being official mouthpieces, but these sites/articles aren't worth the time.

There are some people who think that these articles are leading up to an engagement/pregnancy announcement. Well, anything is possible, I guess. But either of these are highly unlikely. I know that Cumberbatch last year was a game changer for fandoms, but BC '14 is not the norm.

If there is a sloooowly blossoming relationship (shoulder shrug), we might get an idea of it at TIFF - maybe they'll be seen together outside of official events, maybe they'll walk the carpet together, maybe one will make a comment about actually being in a relationship with the other (shock, gasp!) Maybe, they'll show us if they show up at the Calgary FF - they will wear matching western wear as a sign to fans, obviously.

36 Name: Anon. : 2015-08-28 19:57 ID:g7mIS63y

I think those pap photos from Toronto were taken when he was visiting a spa...maybe he'll show up there with EO!!

The couple that spas together, stays together - if they're together at all.

37 Name: Anon : 2015-08-28 19:59 ID:ACqKSePP

>>35 Pregnancy rumours? God. I haven't seen these. Presumably put about on the basis that it isn't implausible in the sense that they are heterosexual and of childbearing age so maybe it will come true and then they can say they predicted it all along. The BBC says it will rain in London with much the same game plan in view.

38 Name: Anon : 2015-08-28 20:00 ID:ACqKSePP

Like Mrs Marcellus Wallace he loves a good foot massage.

39 Name: Anon. : 2015-08-28 20:14 ID:g7mIS63y

>>37 I think people are thinking that TH will 'pull a Cumberbatch,' which means relationship (BAM), engagement (BAM), pregnancy (BAM-BAM). Did you blink - because you missed it if you did. Thanks to BC, relationship, engagement and pregnancy just go hand-in-hand.

>>38 Do you think they charge him extra for those boats he's got for feet?

40 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-08-28 20:18 ID:Heaven

He has a thing for spa, but I think the visit in Toronto was on order from GdT, I remember Jim Beaver wrote about having to go too.

41 Name: Anon : 2015-08-28 20:21 ID:ACqKSePP

It was a translation error. Someone said that you go to a spa to get your beaver sorted out and GdT misunderstood.

42 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-08-28 20:21 ID:Heaven

>>36 so I guess the fact that the spa got shut down by the police was a sign that it was never going to work.

43 Name: Anon. : 2015-08-28 20:33 ID:g7mIS63y

>>41 I ALWAYS go to the spa to get my beaver sorted.

44 Name: Anon. : 2015-08-28 20:37 ID:g7mIS63y

>>40 And how do I get the type of boss that orders me to go to a spa? Seriously, boy has got it MADE: Jim Beaver, hot and cold running beaver, free jackets - even if they are ridiculous, enforced trips to a spas.

45 Name: lex : 2015-08-28 20:44 ID:E5uqGJaS

>>36 are you joking ( I hope) . my sense of humor dies when something like that is said.

the only one true gf he had was Susannah. all the rest - forgive my French- were expensive prostitutes. the Purseface is one of them.

coach potato, now you can lecture me for harsh words.

46 Name: Anon : 2015-08-28 20:48 ID:ACqKSePP

This work spa thang is very overrated. I once went on a business trip to Morocco and got offered a free hammam with a (fortunately female) colleague. We were sitting there in our bikinis when two burly Moroccan ladies marched in. Suddenly we were laying naked side by side on a slab having what looked like builders' gravel rubbed into our titties by people who didn't care about inflicting pain. My suffering was not reduced by the fact that I have now seen a work colleague in the nude. Though I guess TH gets that without having to visit the spa.

47 Name: lex : 2015-08-28 21:23 ID:E5uqGJaS

>>46 you can't be serious about Tom.sleeping with his colleagues. or you read too much of Toby.

48 Name: anonsy : 2015-08-28 21:25 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>47 I think Anon just meant seeing work colleagues naked - he's done sex scenes, there was that story he told Josh Horowitz about seeing Hemsworth naked, and apparently Luke Evans' character in HR runs around naked for a bit.

49 Name: Anon : 2015-08-28 21:27 ID:ACqKSePP

>>47 Get a grip. Who mentioned sleeping with anybody's colleagues? I said I had seen a work colleague naked at a spa. I then said he had seen his work colleagues naked without having to go to a spa. Which in some cases he undoubtedly has done.

50 Name: Anon. : 2015-08-28 23:00 ID:g7mIS63y

>>46 What is it with that? I had the same happen to me in Germany. Hey, Brunhilda, the towel is there for a reason - because you haven't bought me dinner and you don't know my middle name, which means you do not get to look at my lady bits.

>>47 Anon didn't mention Tom sleeping with colleagues. I think Anon made a joke - she's cheeky like that; it's why we love her. We don't know about Tom sleeping with colleagues. He may have. Lots of people have. And we've already talked about how movie sets are places where people become very close - as part of their job descriptions - and share intimate moments and emotions. Their time on the ISTL set is part of the reason why there MAY have been/is something between TH and EO.

>>45 I'm not joking. The couple that spas together does stay together...just ask my wife, Brunhilda.

51 Name: lex : 2015-08-29 04:32 ID:E5uqGJaS

You know Lex, I think that not only this is not the place for you, any community isn't the place for you.
You can't go one post without insulting someone.
So, please, go away. Open a tumblr blog or something and rant there.

To everyone else, ignore her.

54 Name: lex : 2015-08-29 06:48 ID:E5uqGJaS

>>53 you know what? it's rather interesting that everyone is slowed to have their opinion except me. everyone is allowed to say what they want except me. I winder why. is it because I have a different opinion then you and call Elizabeth Olsen her real name and say the truth about the status of their relationship? is it because some people here troll me and then I'm the one who is guilty? nice, very nice.

we will see who will laugh in the end. very soon I will remind you about this every thing.

55 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-08-29 07:04 ID:Heaven

>>54 Elizabeth Olsen real name is Elizabeth Olsen.
And the point is not that you can't express your opinion, the point is that every time you do so you use insults. You seem incapable to go more than 4 words without resentment or vomit.

The truth on the status of their relationship is only known to 2 people: TH and EO. Everything else is an opinion, and opinions are by definition subjective.

Laugh in the end? Grow up, little girl.
There are 8/9 people writing here, I'm pretty sure that most of them think it most likely that there's no relationship, but just because they don't write so at every post now there's a conspiracy against you? This is being delusional and paranoid.

56 Name: lex : 2015-08-29 07:33 ID:E5uqGJaS

be sure that's my last post here.

little girl? lol. think what you want, coach potato. I told you we will see who will laugh in the end, remeber y words very well, because soon you will have it we're you who were wrong. remeber my name. you will hear it. I promise you that. and trust me, you will recognize me.

59 Name: Anon. : 2015-08-29 11:53 ID:g7mIS63y

Did lex insult anyone? I mean, she insulted EO, because that's what she does, and she jumped to the wrong conclusion - and too quickly - about what Anon wrote, but we've all done that (damn you, internet, for not having a laugh track or being able to convey sarcasm).

And, lex, I genuinely don't think anyone was trolling you. Most of what we write here, as I see it, is very much tongue in cheek. I don't really think that they will show up in Calgary wearing matching tassels and cowboy hats as a way to confirm their relationship - it's a joke.

And....back to TH and The Work.

61 Name: Anon. : 2015-08-29 12:04 ID:g7mIS63y

>>52 I guess she was prepping for SI, Couch. I wonder when TH is meant to join? Is the prep work meant to start in late October or is the actual filming meant to start then, so that he would be required earlier? I guess in theory, he might be required right after TIFF and not be available for some/a lot of the other film festivals. Boooo.

Now I'm in two minds about the 'visuals' of this movie. We might get a built-up Coriolanus bod from TH, or we might get a 'I sweated have my body weight away in a jungle' look. Fingers firmly crossed for the former.

Hopefully, Brie will be good about documenting SI filming on her social media, because we all know someone else won't!!

62 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-08-29 12:13 ID:Heaven

>>59 if you want her around start a new thread and invite her there. In my thread you don't call people prostitute because they had dinner with the actor you are obssessed about.

63 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-08-29 12:17 ID:Heaven

>>61 the call in Atlanta was for Oct. 18th but I have no idea if TH and the rest of the cast will also start filming that day. But since they are prepping now I imagine filming can't be too far away.
I think after TIFF he will surely be at BFI, other festival are definetely a maybe.

64 Name: Anon : 2015-08-29 13:39 ID:ACqKSePP

>>62 I'm with Coach on this one. Poking a bit of fun at someone because they behaved in a silly way around some paps - ok. Calling some poor woman a prostitute because she was seen with TH - not ok. She's quick to accuse me of reading too much bycycle but that is exactly the sort of vitriolic nuttery that the loonies over there post (for example about Sophie Hunter because she got pregnant before she and Cumberbatch were engaged). Take it elsewhere.

66 Name: anonsy : 2015-08-31 21:00 ID:vIW3gBsS

I have a question, since Tom seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth. How do things generally work at TIFF? Do they do interviews and photoshoots during the festival, or is that something the actors would go to Toronto early to do? I'm mostly just wondering when we can expect to start hearing about Tom sightings in Toronto.

67 Name: anonymous : 2015-08-31 21:50 ID:4JQCRxPa

No idea how things work at TIFF BUT to break up the radio silence, I will just say that the weather in London is currently woeful - I imagine that it is absolutely lovely in Bora Bora ;)

He surely has to turn up at Hamlet at some point .. unless he's going to one of the film screenings. It would be terribly rude othewise..

70 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-01 06:23 ID:Heaven

>>66 from what I remember of 2013, it's all during the festivals, because you may need all the cast present for photos and most of all some productions may not have the money to pay a long stay at a fancy hotel. I think TH will likely be in Toronto on the 9th at the earliest or the 10th at the latest.

>>69 especially since at wrap-up parties there are always paps at the exit.

"Sources suggest the Marvel superhero blockbuster would shoot in Queensland early next year, with production beginning in earnest in March.
Both Captain Marvel – the first female led comic book actioner from the studio – and Thor: Ragnarok are the titles being considered to film in Australia."

"The news comes after another blockbuster – Kong: Skull Island – prepares to film at Village Roadshow Studios on the Gold Coast for a six-week stretch.
Although majority of the shoot will be offshore, the Universal and Legendary Pictures production – which stars Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L Jackson and Brie Larsson – will film locally from mid-September."

However, now I know don't understand why J.K. Simmons and Keaton dropped out. At Bafta TH said they were going to start filming in late summer/autumn, so it seems like they are respecting the schedule after all.

I don't mind the colour so much as the thicker soles. He does have quite big feet. I tend to think he looks better with a more formal thin soled shoe.

Bit of a cheek the producers castigating fans for blogging unauthorised pics on Tumblr. They said they knew "true fans" would want to wait to see it in the cinema - not much chance of that in the UK if there are no release plans.

Vibe: Achenbaum takes entertaining Hollywood elite in New York to the next level (his A-List-littered Provocateur nightclub anchors Gansevoort Meatpacking) so expect unfettered greatness at this party — akin to Toronto’s Goodnight back in the day. Byblos serves the best mezze platters in the city; when Sienna and Tom dive in, my Instagram caption will read Cotswolds-goes-to-Cyprus. Will Hiddleston’s girlfriend, Elizabeth Olsen, drop in to support? As the young and the strapless descend on Byblos, “who is Hiddleston dating” is sure to be a hot Google search in the 416, as #Cumberbabe hit a trending high at last year’s opening weekend."

>>161 the NTLive rerun of Coriolanus I think, maybe they added some interviews? But I hope with you is for s DVD/Blueray :)

164 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-10 06:57 ID:vIW3gBsS

Flights from London to Toronto are 7.5 hours, minus 5 hour time difference so 2.5 hours. If Tom caught a flight in the afternoon he'd get there in the evening Toronto time. Toronto girl tweeted at night so I guess she could have seen him in the evening. However, the tweets from Josie Rourke and ntlive give the impression that they were working in London all day, which would make me think he was still in London, although he could have left earlier in the day while others kept working. Maybe someone will spot him in London or Toronto tomorrow and then we'll know for sure. He may have gone a couple days early to try and get over the jet lag before all the interviews and premiers and photoshoots.

165 Name: Anon : 2015-09-10 07:22 ID:ACqKSePP

You have to add travel time and check in to those times. At least 1.5 hours in the daytime by car to Heathrow from his place (I am assuming he would not go on the Heathrow Tube with all his stuff), plus 2h check in for international flights. So for an afternoon flight he would have to leave in the morning. Probably didn't hike his stuff to meet Josie so also add time travelling back from wherever they met. I don't think it works tbh.

166 Name: Kate : 2015-09-10 07:27 ID:iEUUZT6a

Meh, they could have done his Coriolanus interview first thing in the morning - it probably wouldn't have taken more than an hour - he could have then hopped on a flight to Toronto in the early afternooon and arrived in the evening local time. Coriolanus interviews with the other cast members and Josie could have continued in London all day - if Tom, Josie, Hadleigh Frasier, Deborah Findlay and Mark Gatiss took an hour each to interview that pretty much takes up the entire day.

167 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-10 07:29 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>165 Ah you're right, I forgot about travel and check-in and all that hassle.

168 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-10 07:40 ID:Heaven

Let's make it 11 hours, flight+check-in+reaching the airport, and let's say the girl tweeted as soon as she saw him.
4:56 am on the 10th in Toronto less 11 hours means he left Heathrow at 5:56pm on the 9th, so he could have spent the day working at Coriolanus and still have left yesterday.

169 Name: Anon : 2015-09-10 07:40 ID:ACqKSePP

All things are possible. He could have been there for an interview. He could have done it first and left early. None of us know. My personal view is that the more likely explanation is that the fan was mistaken.

170 Name: Kate : 2015-09-10 07:41 ID:iEUUZT6a

>165 You're planning that out like he's a normal person, not a famous actor with an assistant, travelling first class. The assistant can get his cases to the airport, he can hop on the tube to Paddington and get the Heathrow Express (which would take less than an hour from Covent Garden), meet the assistant to pick up his cases, he then gets whisked through check-in and security and heads straight to the First Class lounge. He probably only needs to allow an hour/hour and a half at the airport because he's not going to be queueing.

So he heads to the Donmar for 9am, is finished at 10am, makes it to the airport for about 11am, is in the lounge by 11.30am, gets a 1pm flight, lands 3.30pm local time and could be spotted out and about in Toronto that evening.

171 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-10 07:44 ID:vIW3gBsS

Does anyone else have a problem with timestamps on tweets? I am in the same time zone as Toronto, and if I open her tweet in my browser it gives a time of 7:56pm but in the Twitter app it lists the time as 10:56pm.

172 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-10 07:46 ID:vIW3gBsS

I think we are all overlooking the most important bit of that sighting - the girl did not mention Elizabeth Olsen. ;)

173 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-10 07:52 ID:Heaven

>>170 No, I am planning that speaking personally as somebody who lives in NW London and travels internationally a lot for work, always first or business class. When you hit security there is always a bottleneck because although there is a fast track lane it is staffed by fewer people. It can be very variable.

176 Name: Anon : 2015-09-10 08:05 ID:ACqKSePP

>>180 That's what I was assuming, that he would be press-junketing today and tomorrow before the premiere.

This is the guy who took a red-eye from LA to London the night before Coriolanus rehearsals started, then went straight from Heathrow to the Donmar the next morning. He's quite used to these kind of travel arrangements.

I have totally managed to get through check-in/bag-drop and security at Heathrow within 30-45 minutes before now, even travelling as a pleb, and I'm sure he gets a VIP service that shepherds him through as quickly as possible.

yeah, but it could be part of the story, like maybe the band was auditioning? He sounds good. I was expecting more stiffness in how he moved considering Hank's back problem, but again maybe at that point in the story the pain wasn't so strong.

191 Name: Anon : 2015-09-10 19:25 ID:AHvnjPt0

He does sound good!

"‘Kong: Skull Island’ Moving From Universal to Warner Bros."

"Sources close to the situation say while this is not a done deal, things are moving forward and that the idea is to have future “Kong” films possibly cross over with “Godzilla” films, to which WB owns the sequel rights."

let's hope he doesn't get stuck with another franchise.

193 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-11 06:02 ID:Heaven

Some additional pics for ISTL.

Since it was TH who posted that clip, do you think he had the scene with EO cut on purpose? lol (just kidding)

194 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-11 06:03 ID:Heaven

>>191 his voice is stronger than Hank's was, but it gives a more modern sound to the songs (I can't stand Hank's singing)

195 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-11 06:11 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>193 I can see it now - "Hey Olly, I have a job for you! Cut as much Lizzie Olsen out of this video clip as you can." I have to say it's odd to see a photo of her and Tom together without a scarf or purse covering her face. ;)

>>192 Skull Island is supposed to be set in the 70s, right? Maybe if they do further movies in the series or crossovers with Godzilla they'll be present day, and he won't have to worry about it.

Speaking of Kong, Universal Orlando is putting together some kind of Skull Island ride that will open before the film even comes out.

196 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-11 06:22 ID:Heaven

But it is strange though, that pic of Hank and Audrey is clearly just after the end of the clip and media must have got it from somewhere, like the full trailer.

197 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-11 06:24 ID:Heaven

198 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-11 06:44 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>197 Maybe they're hoping the ride will be a good promotion for it. Either that or they are much more confident in the film's success than we are.

>>199 Universal has a good relationship with Warner - they license all the Harry Potter films from them for the Wizarding World - so they should be able to work out an arrangement for Skull Island, but it will probably cost them some serious money.

Hum. May explain why he has been tweeting about Crimson Peak more. Our boy's no fool and although he reasonably says he's proud of his performance in ISTL he probably knows in his heart of hearts that CP is the better film. I haven't seen a single tweet saying "meh CP".

He looks a bit subdued on the pics I've seen. Though on the bright side, his hair must have been flattened down for that suit photoshoot not cut really short. He looks nice.

212 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 06:27 ID:Heaven

Well, I was out enjoying my Friday night, I'll look everything later, but you want to tell me nobody on the red carpet asked if these two are together?

214 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 06:33 ID:Heaven

I'm glad that his performance is well received. As for the film, we kind of knew it wasn't that good didn't we? Only fangirls could think that those not so good reports from the test-screens were a plot against TH.

This one's pretty bad:

216 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 06:39 ID:LT72Chzz

If they did, nobody on tumblr has giffed or quoted it yet. State of play appears to be they arrived separately, no hand holding or PDA. There is one photo set of him with a arm around her (other hand in pocket!) but it is in front of the advertising board so whether it is "we are together" or "Tom poses with arm round co star as we have seen a hundred times before" is anybody's guess. Aside from the photos in front of the board I haven't seen any of them where he is touching her, or even where they are standing together save for the q&a after the movie.

And Bora Bora arm is back which made me chuckle:

217 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 06:40 ID:Heaven

>>215 ouch, but probably very accurate

218 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-12 06:43 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>216 There's one photo of them standing together at the after party, a couple of them with the cake, and some of them separately or with other co-stars/crew etc. They arrived at the party separately.

219 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 06:45 ID:Heaven

>>216 yes, I've just read EO was papped alone when she arrived in Toronto, but not TH. Given they also arrived separately at the RC, I would go as far as saying they are not even much friendly anymore, BoraBora arm is a declaration :)

>>219 Sorry should have expressed myself better. I knew he had been interviewed but I meant if someone had asked "are you together" I'd have expected it to be clipped or giffed whatever the answer.
>>218 I saw the after party pics. I didn't think they looked very together in Jose either. I appreciate they might not want to give everyone the money shot on the red carpet but if you're with someone surely there comes a point when you hold hands or something. I'd have thought the after party among friends would be that time.

224 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-12 06:55 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>223 Yeah. Even if they were together before (which I still doubt), I don't think they are now.

225 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-12 06:57 ID:vIW3gBsS

Also, there were a number of reporters doing interviews on the red carpet, but I don't think they've all posted their videos yet. I expect they'll go online during the weekend.

In that borabora hand photo she is angled away from him isn't she? not even an arm around him.

>>224 I doubt with you and add that if they were just friend, the friendship is gone now. as far as RC predictions go, we nailed the separate and hardly talking to each other part.

227 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 07:03 ID:LT72Chzz

>>224 I am beginning to think you called it right. The body language feels very off to me. With Susanna Fielding he couldn't keep his hands off her. And with Tilda or Jess same thing though they obviously never dated. At the OLLA premiere he and Tilda were so sexy with one another I would have believed it if someone told me they were going out. He held her hand the whole time and he couldn't take his eyes off her.

>>230 I'd go gay for Tilda, I think she's wonderful! Totally agree that he fancied her madly. And she him. I thought they looked gorgeous together. Always assumed that when he was with a GF you'd see the same chemistry. When he's hot for someone it's pretty obvious. Not the case yesterday.
But whence US Weekly? I still don't buy that the May article was a total fabrication.

247 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 08:56 ID:LT72Chzz

I reckon something went on during filming. The break up of her engagement, him going underground and all method-y, and the original US Weekly article all to my mind point to some intense connection and time together. Whether sexual who knows. I think like most holiday romances once it got into real life it was utimately doomed. Pursegategate looks in retrospect like the last hurrah. I think after that encounter only one person thought the relationship had legs. I imagine its demise has been hastened by the knowledge that the film is a stinker.

So I still go with no 2 on balance - just.

255 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 11:55 ID:LT72Chzz

>>251 ouch. not a good review at all as far as the film as a whole goes. Despite the individual performance being praised I doubt they will get the nominations since the film seems by common consensus to be poor. These are the worst reviews I have seen of a project he's been involved in. I feel so sorry for him after he invested so much emotional energy into it.

256 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 12:00 ID:Heaven

Here a comment of a CB poster who is working at TIFF in marketing or PR I think

"There is not much buzz about the movie at the festival, to be honest, and that's worse. The usual gang of fangirls doesn'tmake a movie and Hank Williams is not exactly a well known entity in the surroundings of Toronto to create a buzz to move the movie forward. The USA will be a better place to judge perception by the public. But in terms of professional buzz, from what I hear, no, definitely a non contender and my colleagues comment on the lack of stronger director mostly not that the performances were average. P.s. we are doing our press-clipping and I am reading Hiddleston - the social media star, the social media fans declared love, etc"

260 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 13:50 ID:LT72Chzz

261 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 14:01 ID:LT72Chzz

Random thought on the q&a - if nobody knew the history would anybody look at them and think they were together? If they are in a relationship they are hiding it unbelievably well.

262 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 14:09 ID:Heaven

>>260 Yes, there's a lot to skip to find anything of interest. But other than the same poster saying that they were both bland (referring to their outfits and attitude I suppose) and the links to reviews we also posted, I didn't see anything else.

263 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 14:14 ID:Heaven

>>261 nobody, but actually, that's problem I have with pap night, if we didn't have the usweekly article in May, we would never have taken that for a romantic date, the body language was all wrong.

Yeah they looked to me almost like they'd had a row.

265 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 14:32 ID:LT72Chzz

Against my better judgment I had a peek at CB. The party line over there seems to be that they are together but because he is a Good Person he is not using it for publicity and/or not baiting the fans with it. I must say I really don't get the logic there. If they are together, wasn't the whole point of pap night to get it out there so the fans could get over themselves and/or as a prelude to the RC so it didn't look totally manufactured? And I still would be surprised if he could keep a lid on his feelings. I would expect this at the very least
Or this:
Aren't they just adorable?

266 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-12 14:48 ID:Heaven

>>265 or like with Lara Pulver
There's absolutely no logic to that line of thought, it doesn't even take into consideration the fact that after pap night they spent more than a month apart and it's not like they were especially busy (and since we had an almost weekly sighting of him we know she wasn't with him).
Besides, we are focusing on TIFF, but TH has other festivals and RCs to attend and then he'll be off filming so not spending time together at all makes no sense.

269 Name: Anon : 2015-09-12 14:59 ID:LT72Chzz

Am I right that TIFF Is the only festival outing for ISTL that he was slated to attend? Then I guess the U.S. premiere whenever that is, if he can make it with filming commitments. Not actually many more opportunities for us to see them together. And I shall be interested to see how much SPC pushes it after those bad reviews, and how he copes doing publicity for it. Just posting those OLLA links and comparing the thousand watt smile to yesterday made me see a real difference. Or comparing yesterday to ComicCon when he looked like he was having the time of his life.

That Daily Mail article was awful. Most of their articles are awful. Plus some of the info was wrong - that sneaky tumblr pic was taken only a couple days before the paparazzi incident in July, not all the way back in May.

Unless they outright deny that they are dating, the media will keep reporting on the "relationship." Romance gets people to click links and buy papers. And I don't think they're going to deny it - I think they will let the press use the "on and off screen couple!" angle of promotion since the reviews of ISTL have been so bad save for their performances.

I guess this is at the SPC party? First pic I've seen of Tom in that suit in Toronto.

So it was an EW party.

287 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-13 00:25 ID:vIW3gBsS

Here's one of Tom with Jessica Chastain:

Elizabeth Olsen was there, but so far no photos of her with Tom.

>>282 I think saying nothing may be the smartest thing he has done in ages. What can he say to make it better? No we were never dating makes her look really really bad (US Weekly loser article). Saying we were but we aren't now is hurtful to her - and as you say loses the only angle anyone is currently interested in. Saying we are dating - doesn't appear to be true. Every article about the relationship angle is going with the pic of them together in front of the advertising board. I still haven't seen anything of them together looking like a couple as opposed to co stars.

>>282 >>288 I know, you guys are right, but it's annoying having people think that TH is creating and using these rumours to create buzz around this film.

298 Name: Anon : 2015-09-13 08:11 ID:KDKbJ2gY

It was suggested on tumblr they arrived separately "but walked the red carpet together." This appears to mean that they posed in front of the advertising signboard for about 3 photos.

299 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-13 08:18 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>298 According to that logic he's also dating Elisabeth Moss, Jessica Chastain, and Marc Abraham, and he's married to Eddie Redmayne.

300 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-13 08:23 ID:Heaven

>>299 according to that logic, he's married to Eddie, friend with the other three, and barely in touch with EO ;)

301 Name: Anon : 2015-09-13 08:27 ID:KDKbJ2gY

Yeah, he really hearts Eddie!

302 Name: Anon : 2015-09-13 10:16 ID:KDKbJ2gY

>>283 Yes I get that. Also though I see the force of one of the replies, that Just Jared and co have precious little to write about given that the film is pants so they will use the "romance" angle to generate click bait if they can't write "Oscar shoe in".

303 Name: Kate : 2015-09-13 10:22 ID:iEUUZT6a

I bet it's the first time he's seen Eddie this year - I reckon there were some Oscar congratulations going on there. Looking at the Getty pictures they shook hands with one hand each, then moved to the double-handed handshake, then went into a full-on body hug.

Similarly he probably hasn't seen Elizabeth Moss since last year when they finished filming, and Jessica Chastain since Comic Con.

I'm glad to see him looking happy - he has seemed a bit subdued to me recently.

304 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-13 10:30 ID:Heaven

>>302 yes I don't think that particular poster was saying TH and EO are using again the romance to promote the film, but the media are. And I also thought so, since they are gossip outlets - with the exception of Hollywood Reporter.
However it's annoying, because it's the film that received bad reviews, not the two of them, but unfortunately to people that don't follow him it will look like it's TH and EO using their romance to support their film.

305 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-13 10:32 ID:Heaven

>>303 He was in school with Eddie so it's hardly a mystery that they are friends, though maybe not close ones - based solely on the fact TH wasn't at Eddie's wedding.

307 Name: Anon : 2015-09-13 11:41 ID:KDKbJ2gY

You can't really see from the torrilla pics but that jacket is knitted! He should wear it with the tie...!

308 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-13 11:52 ID:Heaven

>>307 you can, if you enlarge it ;)

He is not as fit as I thought he would be, or maybe it's because he was slouching, especially in that snapchat/gifs video.

309 Name: Kate : 2015-09-13 12:13 ID:iEUUZT6a

>>305 Yes, I know. I always get the impression they're more like Facebook friends than friends-friends - they keep up with what each other are doing, they know all the same people, and they're happy to see each other and chat in real life, but they don't really make an effort to hang out socially.

I don't think they've ever been spotted together outside of a work context.

310 Name: Anon : 2015-09-13 12:15 ID:KDKbJ2gY

>>308 I thought that. I wondered whether it was because the t shirt is a bit drapey and clingy. He does like those rather diaphanous v neck t shirts. Do you remember the almost transparent one?

311 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-13 12:32 ID:Heaven

>>310 yes, but it seems like he bought a new set fall/winter collection.

312 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-13 12:33 ID:Heaven

>>309 indeed, but it's nice that he goes along so well with his colleagues.

313 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-13 12:35 ID:Heaven

Always from the CB's poster who is working at TIFF it's not clear to me if she is referring to EO or Elizabeth Moss

"The woman has a sense of entitlement, that’s for sure is my contribution after yesterday. We’ve seen quite a bit of this here but she is up there with far more famous than her. I’m quite disliking her as of today, not my kind of actor and performer."

315 Name: Anon : 2015-09-13 15:04 ID:KDKbJ2gY

>>313 I think she was talking about EO as she was replying to a comment about tablecloth dress (which I confess I liked!)

316 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-13 15:16 ID:Heaven

>>315 that was my feeling too, that she was referring to EO, since Moss has a much longer career behind her (tablecloth is better than morticia, but on someone much taller than her)

(something went wrong with my hyperlink to the CB poster, so I'm reposting it link)

318 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-13 15:32 ID:Heaven

I'd say that like you pointed out yesterday, it's one thing to not make a show of a relationship on RC and Q&A if you want to keep it private, but never be close or spending time together at parties it's just not natural or normal for 2 people who are dating. And there were fans at those parties who would have spotted them.

(I take it Brie isn't anymore with her 2013's bf?)

319 Name: Anon : 2015-09-13 15:33 ID:KDKbJ2gY

>>316 I think I mostly like it because she is wearing decent shoes and has brushed hair and proper makeup. She looks really pretty with a classic eyeliner and a red lip but that smudgy gothy eye makeup she had the day before does nothing for her.

321 Name: Anon : 2015-09-13 16:03 ID:KDKbJ2gY

>>320 He has gone mad with the new clothes hasn't he? New jacket, new top, new shoes. Still we'll be seeing that t shirt 1,000,000 times over the next few years.

322 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-13 16:11 ID:Heaven

>>321 And he was wearing that photoshoot's lilac shirt last night, with striped suit. I don't know if we can handle so many new outfit in one go.

323 Name: Anon : 2015-09-13 16:20 ID:KDKbJ2gY

>>322 Suits he buys quite a few of. But he has had a casual clothes explosion recently see also the weird grey jacket at comic con (inevitably with white v necked tee). I notice he has been true to form insofar as he wore a new coat to Letters Live which he was still wearing in the sneaky bicycle pics in July! If you look at the knitted jacket on the gif it is about as like a grandad cardigan as a garment could be while still being a jacket. Bless.

324 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-13 16:24 ID:Heaven

>>323 that's true about the suits, but I was surprised by the change of colour, lilac was unheard of so far. New coat to replace the quilted ones, knitted jacket to replace the old sweater. New set of v necked tshirt. New vans!
What will the future bring? Please let it be new boots.

325 Name: Anon : 2015-09-13 16:30 ID:KDKbJ2gY

>>324 Fat chance with the boots I suspect. He wore them to pursegategate with the Letters Live coat. They are his one true enduring love.
He perhaps feels trusting of the lilac shirt because he was enticed to wear it in the photo shoot. Everything else is still black white grey or navy! He is adorably useless at casual dressing.

327 Name: Anon : 2015-09-13 17:21 ID:KDKbJ2gY

>>326 that chemistry was so much in evidence yesterday!

328 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-13 17:30 ID:Heaven

>>327 Totally! And she mentions this detail, that in 2011 when TH had a gf they had perfect chemistry, now that there are rumours about them being a couple (which MTV reports).
If there was a leak to USWeekly, she was so behind it. I can see why that CB poster said EO has a sense of entitlement.

329 Name: Anon : 2015-09-13 17:47 ID:KDKbJ2gY

>>328 She still wants it so bad. No wonder he looked very awkward on the first night. Probably the first time they saw each other since PurseGate.

331 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-13 18:13 ID:Heaven

>>329 I don't know about her still wanting it. It seems to me that she's taking revenge where she can. Yesterday at the Q&A with that gibe about his eloquence, here she goes after his thoroughness "I feel like when you’re always that thorough you always have that expectation and other people have that expectation".

332 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-13 18:26 ID:ypJ2OptK

>>331 I agree. I think Elizabeth's saccharin-sweet comments about Tom are just her way of passive-aggressively setting herself up to be the "poor girlfriend" when this thing finally ends. Very odd that they were interviewed separately.

333 Name: Anon : 2015-09-13 18:28 ID:KDKbJ2gY

>>331 I think we are agreed that all is not well in the garden of shag! I wonder if he met her for the first time when he got out of his limo.
I see even CB, which usually casts quite a jaded eye on life, is buying (or click baiting) the "they are together and posed as a couple" - what????

The Martian cast, Trumbo cast & on-screen couples were interviewed together: NHoult & KStew, JasonS & AlisonB. Kinda sticks out that Tom & Lizzie weren't.

341 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-13 18:53 ID:vIW3gBsS

For those that don't want to wade through.

There have been a lot of links between you and Tom Hiddleston, about you two dating. I don’t know if that’s something you confirm, but how do you feel —

"I mean, we definitely are friends and we've known each other for about four years. And we happened to be at a restaurant at a wrong time having dinner. We all go out to dinner."

How do you react when you see that in the press?

"Well, apparently, I'm dating Chris Evans, and apparently, I've dated Jeremy Renner, so I guess that... I don’t react to it."

So you're not dating Tom?

"No. I mean people can think what they want to think."

359 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-13 22:10 ID:vIW3gBsS

Good for you Couch - you called it right!

This leaves me even more fascinated by the U.S. Weekly articles. Where from? I still find it hard to believe that was a total off the wall fabrication which she had nothing to do with.

>>359 I too am amazed that she admitted it. I wonder if she let the "no" out slightly by accident as in "no. Er, I mean, people can think what they like."

361 Name: Anon : 2015-09-13 22:17 ID:c11YtcVO

362 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-13 22:21 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>360 As she pointed out in that interview, someone (cough her PR cough) has a history of linking her to famous actors in the press, and then she denies the relationships a few months later. This is actually something that went on with her even before she was engaged to Boyd Holbrook, so I think it's part of her PR's strategy. Though I'm still not exactly sure what they're trying to do - make her look desirable? like a victim of the press? just to keep her name out there by suggesting she's romantic or hooking up with her costars? Of course there's a chance that maybe something was going on between her and Tom and it's not anymore, therefore denial, but I don't think so.

363 Name: Anon : 2015-09-13 22:28 ID:c11YtcVO

>>362 I wonder if there was something, fairly new or casual, that got killed by the publicity. Or that somebody (guess who, cough cough) wanted there to be something going on.
Anyway a lot of gossip journalists will be eating dirt tomorrow. Celebitchy suggested she was pregnant under that peplum!

364 Name: Really? : 2015-09-13 22:30 ID:iEUUZT6a

Why do you find that hard to believe? It wouldn't be the first time a gossip site has made up a story!

'People can think what they like' is celeb-speak for 'I don't really care who random strangers think I'm dating'. That's exactly why the gossip sites get away with just making shit up - they know most celebs don't think it's worth getting upset about, as long as they're not actually accused of cheating, which would be libel. Hence all the gossip sites being so careful about saying there was no cheating going on.

365 Name: NCP : 2015-09-13 22:37 ID:4fuox1q4

So that's that, I guess. Weird that Lizzie just let the rumors grow & grow & grow for almost 9 months & then acts all indignant that she's actually asked to clarify. Whatever. But I gotta say, now that it's pretty clear Lizzie won't get any award nominations, I wonder if that's why she wanted to put the rumor to rest. This rumor no longer helps Lizzie, it only helps the film & possibly Tom.

366 Name: Anon : 2015-09-13 22:39 ID:c11YtcVO

>>364 Because she is known to use US Weekly as her PR organ of choice. As for example Clooney uses People. It was fairly extensively discussed on (I think) thread 3.

371 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-14 05:56 ID:Heaven

Well I got it right but I thought they would ask him since he is the homewrecker. I guess Luke made it clear to press that TH won't answer that sort of question:
I think as a strategy it goes along with what I said about her and her gibes at TH. I'm with Anon that she went a bit JA and tried to create a relationship and since it didn't work now she is the one talking. Again she says they have been friends for 4 years, so she didn't cheat on her fiancè.

This is why I thought it would be better for TH to squash the rumour first. Now since EO talked I wonder if he will too.

I take her presence at HR premiere in that fashion as work, mainly because given their behaviour these past 2 days, what else could it be?

372 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-14 06:00 ID:Heaven

this is from CB, a collection of twitter comments for HR fromthe audience I guess.

“HIGH-RISE isn’t SNOWPIERCER in a condo, it’s COSMOPOLIS.”

“HIGH-RISE is a wonderfully mad piece of cinema. Super faithful Ballard adaptation, both to its benefit and detriment. ”

“#HighRise: fear and loathing on the social ladder. above and beyond; unforgettable experience”

“Well that’s 2 hours I’ll never get back. Polite tepid applause for Ben Wheatley’s #HighRise, worst film I’ve seen at #TIFF15 so far”

“High Rise was kind of like Snowpiercer but awful”

“I would like to have my two hours back please, High-Rise.”

“High-Rise was… interesting. Not my cup of tea, but then it did have Tom Hiddleston dancing and in various states of undress.”

“HIGH RISE: like a nightmare you can’t wake up from; incoherent, irritating and something you’ll hope to forget.”

“#highrise is more interested in metaphors than story. Too bad I like my movies with less ironies than character developments.”

About EO and why she is talking now, together with saying that it's because she knows nothing will ever happen and she moved on, obviously it might also be that they were always just friends, though why just friends wouldn't hang out together at parties it's a mystery.

Hi guys, I had a busy weekend and missed all the latest news :)

So, if anything was happening at all, it's apparently over.

From the Screendaily review, do not read that review if you want to avoid spoiler.
"In Tom Hiddleston, the director has found an actor who can deliver the central character’s essential distance with the right mix of sympathy, intelligence and raw carnality. The film sings, and, frequently, dances; it feels alive."

400 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-14 10:46 ID:Heaven

See, watching the variety studio fandango video you can totally say "they were only just friends". EO says that she met with TH 4 years ago and they kept in touch all these years. So to me it makes no sense that they'd wait so much to crazy fall in love with each other. And when watching the hollywood reporter video even my own speculations about EO throwing gibes at TH make little sense.

But I'm so happy we are done with this, I swear this is the last time I join the speculation game about his love life.

401 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-14 13:07 ID:Heaven

CB's latest TH post is about EO denying dating TH and how fans are delusional for believing her. Posters are up in arms (hence the reply I'm posting, that if true is interesting for the seating apart detail). Thing is, CB **is** a gossip site and as clickbaity as the DM. With TH especially since gone are the times when his posts would reach the 600 comments and teasing is good for numbers.

"Wow. If the photos from tiff show them being a couple, then Tom is also in a relationship with Jessica, Brie Larson, AND Eddie Redmanye. I had a friend who was at the I Saw The Light screening and they didn’t even sit together during the film. And they went to the after parties separately. They have probably did the nasty a couple times, but being seen one weekend with someone who looked like he could care less about you when the paparazzi were crawling all over you probably isn’t a relationship. Or it’s a really terrible one."

>>401 Oh what a load of absolute bollocks Kaiser is spouting. She is covering her back because yesterday she ran a "pregnancy?" story. And if she believes the "photographed together multiple times in London" story then she is out of her mind. There were 2 occasions: creepy stalker fan shot and pursegategate.

403 Name: Anon : 2015-09-14 14:27 ID:7WXhjtLW

By contrast this sounds plausible (also from CB):

"Old and cynical party of one here to propose a theory:
Someone’s PR team leaked the dating stories ahead of the film festivals to garner some press. The same PR person likely tipped off the paps re: the posh dinner “date”, and probably planted the stories on the gossip sites that they’ve been an item since filming.
Jump ahead to the film festival, where the only good things being said about ISTL are the reviews of Hiddleston’s performance.
So, this film isn’t going to be a contender, neither actor is likely to be nominated for a major award. (Or a leg lamp, for that matter.) Therefore, no more reason to play the “are they or aren’t they” game, hence the flat out denials about dating. If the film were getting better reviews, I have no doubt that this would’ve played out differently."

Makes some sense of the U.S. Weekly article.

404 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-14 14:37 ID:Heaven

>>402 I don't know what's worse, her writing that bs, or people reacting to it. If they were a couple she would have said nothing, to avoid looking like idiots in the future. Now that she talked others will maybe ask her.

>>403 yes, I think we even covered it in thread3, but I don't see TH playing this game, since he probably already knew the film was so-so. So it'd be her PR.

I know we said as a joke, about EO and ISTL's director, but isn't it strange to hold hands with the director of your film and another film's première?

406 Name: Anon : 2015-09-14 14:47 ID:7WXhjtLW

>>404 It is fun to speculate when it is ambiguous pics or gossipy articles (even if seeming to be planted). But when it comes from the horse's mouth in clear terms I tend to say "ok game over". I know celebs do lie - Clooney denied dating Amal and then got engaged but the interesting thing was that he had never commented before (save I think to confirm known relationships were over). But EO has commented on rumours before and was keen seemingly to get the accurate story out about her breakup with Boyd. She was asked and she was pretty direct about TH.

407 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-14 14:51 ID:Heaven

>>406 yes, me too. But if you read CB posters they are writing the most absurd plots and things that can't be proved just to go on talking about it. Oh well, it took how many months for people to stop with JA? It's going to be the same here.

408 Name: Anon : 2015-09-14 14:57 ID:7WXhjtLW

>>407 And I say this all as someone who thought they were. I still think they may have been, and she didn't exactly say they never had. But as to what is going on now - all the evidence points one way. Also, as others have commented in a not so mad way, I'd they are dating why not just say MYOB? There is no downside to that response either way - don't engage and let people in, and keep the rumour mill going.

I notice that in the opposite "believe EO" camp, US Weekly, previously supposed to be founded on verified "sightings" between Jan - May, is now considered to be vicious and inherently unbelievable rumour. How did we ever fall for that? I think the truth may lie somewhere in between. Not that we will ever know.

Oh, that still makes me laugh, mainly because I think it's a sly way of commenting on the general nonsense and conspiracy theories some people over there spout.

There's no more imagination involved in the picnics on the veranda than there is is the convoluted conspiracy theories about pap walks and PR set-ups and co-stars being FWBs, etc.

425 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-14 21:10 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>421 >>424 I seem to remember it all starting with the Tom Hiddleston Jaguar commercial, where he puts a mysterious bag into the trunk of his car. People joked that it was Mark Strong in the bag, since he was the other "villain" in the first commercial. Then Strong was hiding in the trunk, somehow Colin Firth ended up in there, and now two years later we have a whole harem of male actors serving brunch and mimosas. Which, yes, is probably more realistic than a lot of what gets posted in the actual articles on CB lately. ;)

426 Name: Kate : 2015-09-14 21:39 ID:iEUUZT6a


It's refreshing to see people with a sense of humour, because some of the over-invested fans over there scare me a bit!

As it happens I think they would have made a cute couple together, but if they say they're just friends then I'll take their word for it over the speculations of people who have never met them based on a few seconds' worth of photographs.

427 Name: kate : 2015-09-14 22:42 ID:iEUUZT6a

Don't get me started (again) on Celebitchy. Seems like for every individual covered there is nowsome queen bitch telling everybody what the party line is. What has happened to the TH threads? When I first discovered TH I read back some of the more commented upon articles and they were hilarious: very affectionate but they also saw the funny side of his foibles. Nowadays if someone expresses any view no matter how anodyne some loon will leap on it disagreeing and flog it to death. I personally think all this crap about verandas is no more than a way to police views expressed on the board (if you're not in my gang etc). It's not so much mimosas for everyone as disagree with me and I will chuck you into my crocodile infested bayou.

430 Name: Anon : 2015-09-15 00:12 ID:fx9Il0DV

Much more importantly, why has a film featuring both Luke Evans and TH cavorting naked, with bonus Jeremy Irons and James Purefoy, not acquired a UK distributor?

>>427 thank you.

"“We went out to dinner in London, and everybody [assumed],” says Hiddleston with a laugh.

“Apparently you don’t go out to dinner at that restaurant,” Olsen chimes in. (The restaurant was London’s elegant The Wolseley on Picadilly.)

“Mustn’t do that,” adds Hiddleston.

“We happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time having dinner, and people have dinner, and then it becomes a lot of things,” says Olsen, clearly amused. “I mean, I’m apparently in lots of relationships right now.”"

TH addressed it! Now I got it right! haha
But I think both parts decided to do this and that they are friendly but not friends anymore, because like that Lainey reported:

"But for what it’s worth, I can tell you that at the I Saw The Light after-party, aside from posing for photos together, they barely had any interaction."

And look at thewrap video, EO and Abraham have some interesting body language.
However, unless we'll have a future article claiming those 2 are a couple and their love started on ISTL set, I'm ok with not caring about it :)

"Now that Legendary has moved Kong, that settles a brewing argument over the script's references to Monarch, the secret government entity in Godzilla that employed the characters played by Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins. Obviously, the inclusion of Monarch in Kong is a move to tie the ape into a hoped-for Godzilla "universe."

So, if I understand well what THR is writing, now Kong is back being a sequel and it takes place in modern times? Otherwise how can the same organization from Godzilla exists in the '70?

>>477 it is a shirt that looks like one your grandad would wear. Apparently over at Mr Porter this is a selling point!

481 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-17 15:58 ID:Heaven

This is funny, where I live these cardigans would never be considered that way, but actually very elegant in a csual way, while the grandad shirts would just be considered badly cut and cheap, no grandad would ever wear a shirt like that.

482 Name: Anon : 2015-09-17 15:59 ID:ACqKSePP

And this, though doubtless Ralph Lauren and very expensive, is a grandad jumper. It has a high round neck and a big cable knit pattern. He looks very cute in it but that's him and not the jumper. I am sure my dad (in his 70s) has a jumper like this (not from Ralph Lauren):全部微博#showPic

>>482 With all the effort he put in having new stuff to wear - I wonder, if all of his new wardrobe for TIFF was offered by RL how many of those he is going to keep?

484 Name: Anon : 2015-09-17 16:20 ID:ACqKSePP

Quite a few of his clothes seem to be stolen from photo shoots or given to him (the boots, the Loki scarf). He only seems to know one shop - the one that sells V neck t shirts. I imagine he will keep them so he doesn't need to shop for the next 5 years!

485 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-17 16:28 ID:Heaven

>>484 true, if you need a V neck tshirt TH is your man.

486 Name: NCP : 2015-09-17 16:50 ID:/TMXnHZt

>>483 I assume Tom will keep the new clothes. He's been given suits for premieres before. Armani or some designer stitched a tag w/ some 'expressly made for Tom Hiddleston' thing in the suit given to Tom for the War Horse premiere. What's weird is, female actresses don't get to keep the premiere clothes they're given, but male actors do. LOL, what's up w/ that?!?

487 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-17 16:54 ID:Heaven

>>486 The suits I have no doubt I was mostly wondering about the casual outifts - Probably because nobody gives men grief for wearing the same suits to multiple RCs while women must always look different, for some obscure reason.

488 Name: Anon : 2015-09-17 17:05 ID:ACqKSePP

>>486 maybe because women's RC outfits are so expensive relatively speaking.

489 Name: NCP : 2015-09-17 20:08 ID:q5xtdNJ8

I get that actors get more red carpet mileage out of 1 suit than actresses get out of 1 dress, but still seems like actresses are shafted. Their rc dresses are sample sizes (another reason why they starve themselves, so they can fit into sample sizes). For actors, their rc suits are custom made, cost a fortune & are just given to them. Actors aren't shamed into forcing themselves to be model thin, it'd be nice if actresses weren't either. But to get back on track, I like how Tom looked at TIFF, even tho he could repeat some of theses suits at future red carpets, I hope he gets a few new ones & tries some different rc looks.

490 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-17 20:23 ID:Heaven

(this is a bit OT but I found it mentioned at CB and it's a photo of EO walking, on her left is TH but on her right she is arm in arm with Abraham, the instagram poster confirms it in the comments.

>>495 I fear that with one of his idols so close (RDN), TH may be in danger of letting his nerves get the best of him.

I just don't want him to do something titish! And, God, please, no dancing. No dancing, and no singing.

Just low key class and brief, intelligent answers with touches of humor.

514 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-19 06:48 ID:Heaven

>>512 Don't think so, in one of the numerous TH's threads of this week a few people posted against that so it's probably about those posters. Tbh, I think it's very rude to do so, it's one thing to write elsewhere why you don't like CB anymore, one another to go there.

515 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-19 06:52 ID:Heaven

>>513 I hope not mainly because it would look old? But I don't know this show, is it humorous like the Chatty Man? Because I guess that the host might comment on him dancing in High Rise and asking him to perform, and then what can he do?

516 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-19 07:00 ID:Heaven

517 Name: Anon : 2015-09-19 07:47 ID:ACqKSePP

>>515 Graham Norton is fun and anarchic (though unlike Chatty Man he does not completely set my teeth on edge). I would say dancing is likely.

>>514 I would never go on CB and tell those particular posters what I think. As I think qaz said on a previous thread, everyone comes to the fandom in their own way. On the other hand, it swamps every thread because it is brought up as a response to every comment seemingly. It seems reasonable enough to point that out and say "a bit less please." As I write this I marvel at my naivety expecting people on the Internet to behave in a moderate way!!

518 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-19 09:11 ID:Heaven

>>517 if Norton is like that, it's a good thing we don't have a HR trailer yet, imagine all the gifs on tumblr about his sex scenes and if he were asked about them.

519 Name: qaz : 2015-09-19 09:51 ID:9ueQrr2w

>>495 Oh, finally, I like this show a lot, the host is great (in my opinion), he somehow manages to make his guests relaxed and entertaining, and I was wondering mildly why TH was never on it. I've even seen some musings from other people that maybe GN didn't like him personally, or smth. But probably just because the projects where he was in the lead weren't considered big enough, and huge franchises, like Marvel movies, had other bigger names in them who were invited to promote on the GN.

I do hope that they will not make him dance or do other silly stuff.

520 Name: Anon. : 2015-09-19 12:44 ID:g7mIS63y

>>515 I watched the very first GN shows when I was living in London. Mostly, he made fun of the audience, asking them to share stories and pics. I think he still does. I like the show.

However, some of the stuff he does with stars can be cringe-tastic. I remember him sharing fan fiction stories with D Radcliffe. I think he read the summaries of some of the crazier ones. He also likes to share fan art like Chatty Man did.

I - even if it does seem old and stuffy - don't want TH to have to confront fan fiction summaries. Or anymore fan art.

There are other ways to be funny and entertaining.

521 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-19 13:29 ID:Heaven

>>520 I hope so and it's not really about being old and stuffy, simply it'd be a pity for his upcoming films to be reduced to sex scenes and what his fans do on tumblr.

522 Name: qaz : 2015-09-19 13:45 ID:9ueQrr2w

>>520 Oh yeah, he likes to do that. That's the only thing about the show that I have a slight beef with. Well, the most of TH-related fanfiction probably involves Loki, and he's promoting entirely different movies now (I guess apart from multiple gifs there's not so many fanfics or fanart of those already?), so let's hope GN won't bring it up. Although with him you never know.

523 Name: Anon. : 2015-09-19 14:36 ID:g7mIS63y

>>521 Please, God, do NOT let GN bring up his tag. Hopefully, Luke will put the kibosh on that sort of thing. Time to disassociate himself with Tumblr.

Speaking of the publicist that must not be named. This is from a TIFF best and worst list. It came under the 'weird' category.

'Even Tom Hiddleston’s unflappable personal publicist, Luke Windsor, has his own rabid fan following, including Tumblr tribute sites and hashtags. Celebrity has come to this.'

I don't even want to know what this woman witnessed that led her to this knowledge.

525 Name: qaz : 2015-09-19 15:06 ID:9ueQrr2w

>>524 Not long after I became interested in TH and was reading various and lots of stuff on Tumblr, I've seen a couple of blogs dedicated to LW. Some fans were saying that they even tried to get his autograph (SMH). He declined, though, so I give him props for that.

526 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-19 15:08 ID:Heaven

>>524 I wonder if he has fans because it's a sneaky way to get closer to TH, or people are just too stupid to know better. But of course fans started a fan account on fb I think for TH's security person/driver.

527 Name: Kate : 2015-09-19 15:16 ID:iEUUZT6a


The Graham Norton show has changed a lot since the very early days - you still get the odd silly skit, and the odd embarassing website about one of the celeb guests, but not so much anymore, and generally on people's 2nd or 3rd appearance when they're running out of good stories.

I'm pretty sure with De Niro and Branagh on the couch they'll have more than enough to talk about. I expect some impressions will be trotted out, but dancing seems relatively unlikely - especially as he'll be promoting Crimson Peak.

528 Name: Anon : 2015-09-19 16:49 ID:ENAdWJtN

If anything I feel as GN has become more of a celebrity in his own right, he talks too much. So less time for shenanigans of any kind. I am surprised they put 3 big hitters together on one show. Maybe they too want to see TH struck dumb with admiration!

529 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-20 07:15 ID:Heaven

So I read this at the bycycle and never mind the JA stuff, he was there (at the q&a not the press conference) but I truly don't remember seeing any photo of him and him with TH.

And now back to JA (kind of). She is a piece of work, that one. Meanwhile the nw3 has just gone silent - hasn't shut down or deleted, just stopped posting. Weird. I'd have thought she wouldn't be able to keep quiet the last week.

531 Name: anonsy : 2015-09-20 09:07 ID:vIW3gBsS

>>530 I can't remember if we discussed this or not, but there was a Twitter user, vinividi with some numbers at the end, who was tweeting screenshots of nw3's blog posts to Luke Windsor and Tom. Nw3 said it didn't bother her but stopped posting shortly after vinividi started, so I assumed it at least scared her a little and maybe made her take a break from the blog. Also around the same time a couple of names got thrown out on Town Bike of who nw3 anon could be, and maybe nw3 quit posting because one of them was right.

532 Name: Anon : 2015-09-20 09:14 ID:ACqKSePP

>>531 I don't recall we did. The cessation was quite recent before TIFF as far as I can see. After the drama of shutdown 1 it is odd she has just stopped without deleting anything. Also this time around she was much more careful, not posting any actual gossip, just as far as I could see mutual abuse between fans!

533 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-20 10:00 ID:Heaven

Her aunt?!!! Curiouser and curiouser. I always thought that her profile was more akin to some of the CB commenters, a middle aged woman. with probably an admin job at a theatre that allowed her to say with some truth she was in that world. If she is worried about her aunt telling her off then she is more likely to be a 19 year old Tumblr girl like all the rest.

I have to say that I howled with laughter at the other anon comments! "If you're just here to get more compliments from your ass-kissing followers..."

539 Name: Kate : 2015-09-20 11:49 ID:iEUUZT6a


I'm not sure why this is considered unusual - actors don't normally have any contact with the people doing the music on their movies, so he may not have ever met the guy before. With so many of his friends and castmates there it would have been weird if he had been getting pally with Clint Marshall.

540 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-20 11:52 ID:Heaven

>>536 :)

>>538 It is a better and funnier reason for her first, sudden, shut down isn't it? She claimed she was mid-thirties, but regardless, if an aunt truly exists and she is a prominent/known figure in the theatre community, I doubt being an adult would save her from reprimand.

541 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-20 11:57 ID:Heaven

>>539 TH and Mansell know each other and follow each other on twitter, Mansell's agent is JA and Mansell was RT things related to TH before BoraBora. That's what the bycycle's poster was hinting at.

542 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-20 12:02 ID:Heaven

I find so unusual that the SanSebastianFF would release to the public the time TH and the rest will arrive at their hotel today. Is the check-in part of the festival?

543 Name: Kate : 2015-09-20 12:03 ID:iEUUZT6a


Yes, I'm quite a regular London theatre-goer and I have to say she hardly ever posted anything about theatre itself, or that made me think she was in theatre circles and knew what she was talking about. Her general commenting audience didn't seem to know very much about London theatre, so her vague statements were accepted at face vlaue.

She claimed not to know who Tom was before 2011, when he was quietly generating buzz within the theatre world long before that. It's quite a small community, so people tend to know each other - that seeemd odd. But then her whole attitude towards Tom is strange - she's not a fan of him, yet runs a blog off the back of his fame, which mainly talks to and about his fans. I can believe the 'not a fan' bit becausse she rarely displayed any interest in his actual work, she seemed more interested in stirring up drama and petty arguments among fans.

544 Name: Kate : 2015-09-20 12:16 ID:iEUUZT6a


So we assume he knows the guy, at least slightly. They might just be acquaintances, though - following someone on Twitter does not mean much, Tom follows a lot of people he works with on Twitter and some random people he doesn't know (like most of us do).

My theory is that he uses Twitter to DM some people rather than give out his phone number, which until recently meant you had to be following each other.

Even if they're really good friends, not being incredibly pally with him when he's actually working is not exactly strange. Co-stars are expected to publicly interact with each other at these events, and to some extent are performing for the cameras when they do so. Or he even could have had a long and enthusiastic conversation with him before the event that just didn't get photographed.

People really do over-interpret photographs and Twittervto fit their conspiracy theories.

545 Name: Anon : 2015-09-20 12:38 ID:ACqKSePP

>>544 For example the makeup lady on ISTL - I guess on the basis that if they are in the industry they won't be too mad. Even if he doesn't as far as we know interact with them again he doesn't tend to unfollow. Again not surprising as once you have a big list of stuff you're following going through and deleting is a hassle. I agree - I don't read anything into him having followed CM.

Following and unfollowing JA within a few hours of the Wimbledon debacle - rather different!

546 Name: Anon : 2015-09-20 12:45 ID:ACqKSePP

>>543 My secret shame is that I had no idea who he was up to and including watching him in Coriolanus, despite going to the theatre a lot. I realised later that I had seen him in Ivanov and Othello - but hadn't watched Thor/Avengers etc as it wasn't my thing, and didn't bother with the Hollow Crown because I had fairly recently seen an amazing production at the RSC and I thought the telly version would just bug me. So I never really realised he had gone onto bigger things especially as he had been out of the theatre world for a long time since Ivanov. Then a friend said she had front row tickets for Coriolanus and I said "oh ok sounds nice. Who's that bloke?" She said later she thought I sounded most ungrateful!

Article from the Calgary Herald about ISTL

An interesting quote from Marc Abraham about the TH/EO tabloid gossip stories:
"I teased Tom one day when someone was writing about it. I said ‘Dude, I would pay people to write that I was having an affair with Elizabeth Olsen’ He said ‘Yeah, but you ain’t me.’ But I was just trying to keep him light so he didn’t worry about it.”

I've also heard that downloading on an iPad is more straightforward than a phone.

I don't want to sound cynical, but the timing is interesting: trip in March, but campaign comes out much later in the year...say, just around the time his movies premiere, award campaigns start...maybe it's the UN's timing, not his.

Lol .. but it is probably a mutually beneficial relationship: Hiddleston has movies to promote .. the UN have a S Sudanese emergency to raise funds for plus the release of yet another set of prettily sloganed "goals" that most likely will not be reached and just replaced by another lot in a few years.

He just tweeted about the UN Global Goals or whatever, so yeah... I sense a UNICEF blog coming up. In all fairness, S Sudan is a lot hairier than Guinea and the kids in really dire shape (they just had yet another emergency with displaced people a month ago).

UN and UNICEF are not the same thing - global goals I think is a UN initiative and the trip to Sudan was separate through UNICEF.

The latter organisation did mention the trip to S Sudan in March it seems, and when TH went to Guinea they didn't hold details of that trip back for 6 months IIRC. It would be a weird thing to do if they needed to fundraise straight away in March - and would they really let TH manipulate them and the news cycle to that extent? In fairness to TH the person who revealed more was the photographer who may have seen a retail opportunity for his pics because TH is in the news.

612 Name: Anon : 2015-09-27 08:04 ID:ACqKSePP

I should have said, I mean, I know they are from the same origin in the 40s but UNICEF works and publicises itself separately from the UN so support for one doesn't necessarily imply working with or supporting the other. I think Angelina Jolie is a UN special ambassador or something but not really involved in UNICEF.

613 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-27 08:43 ID:Heaven

>>611 Yep, they are 2 different things especially in the results they obtain. Besides, the UN video is a video with many celebrities, not just him, and like TH says in the VF interview he was invited, trips to war zones aren't organized to fit film promotion.

Group of adventurers arrive on island on one or or another flimsy pretext (who really cares what) and end up doing battle with - surprise! - creature that lives there which isn't at home to visitors, even if one of them is TH wearing hot Indiana Jones style explorer gear. Disappointingly generic in my view. Why does TH think this is a new and exciting treatment? Obviously he has read the script (or one of the many versions) but I wait to be convinced on the advisability of this project.

616 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-27 12:26 ID:Heaven

>>615 Maybe TH means it's great because of his character? Like when he kept saying the script for ISTL was great and Abraham was great but in reality script and direction were panned and what was great was his performance. Of course, Jurassic World was bland too and had great success, so let's hope the film is enjoyable and it doesn't bomb.

617 Name: Anon : 2015-09-27 13:55 ID:ACqKSePP

>>616 I did think of ISTL - another project suggesting his instincts aren't 100% strong. I think that whatever he says he may be guilty of chasing both Oscar and commercial success instead of doing what others say is the best way to achieve those things, namely choosing the best projects and letting critical and commercial success take care of itself.

>>611 The UN and UNICEF are - for all intents and purposes - the same organization. UNICEF's parent organization is the UN - the general assembly votes on and oversees UNICEF protocol and campaigns. It is part of the UN's common system. UNICEF does not work independently of the UN.

619 Name: Anon. : 2015-09-27 14:23 ID:g7mIS63y


All international organizations that cross borders - except for the CIA and similar ones - must details the movements of their employees and operatives in an organizational circular.

These circulars are different from any promotional campaigns that may happen at the same time or later.

620 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-09-27 14:25 ID:Heaven

>>617 But as far as he was concerned, his instincts were right. The role was challenging but he did great and received great reviews from important critics, all in all it was a win for him, even if the film is a fiasco. HR didn't do so great either with critics that count, but here too it's on the director.
To me what looks iffy about Skull is the director, the number of script-writers they changed so far and the fact that Universal didn't stick with the project.

621 Name: Anon. : 2015-09-27 14:30 ID:g7mIS63y


They are also equally alike in that both use celebrities to promote their policies. And celebrities use BOTH to promote themselves.

The UN general assembly is rather infamous for inviting celebrities to speak before it. Leo DiCaprio spoke about climate control at the UN...before getting on a private jet to fly off on holiday. TRUE. George Clooney had been angling for a full assembly speech for the longest time, but only got a security counsel speaking gig - and then resigned from his 'peacekeeper' position. He said it was because he no longer had time - he'd never spent much time on it, anyway. Likely, it had everything to do with the UN not giving him a more high-profile part in UN PR.

The UN and UNICEF use and are used for PR.

Jolie is probably one of the few UN/UNICEF celebs whose role is completely PR-less - and I say that not being her biggest fan - at all. The number of trips she undertakes is 10x that of other ambassadors. And many of her trips are not reported - except in UN circulars.

622 Name: Anon. : 2015-09-27 14:35 ID:g7mIS63y


As for results, both are similar as well. For the time, effort and money poured into the UN and UNICEF - their results amount to nearly jack all.

But then an organization with that many member states and such a large mandate - it's not going to be able to accomplish a 10th of its programs.

But NATO - raise your hand if you work for NATO (raises hand) - there's an organization that gets shizza done!!

I think you're right regarding his instincts regarding the overall challenge of the ISTL role and the stretch it would give to his talents.

However, he read the script - which has taken a pasting by critics - and still said yes. Actors do that - they say yes to crappy scripts thinking their AWESOME performances will make it better. But that's not how it works. OLLA anyone - that script - did it even have a script?

Which is why I'm side-eyeing the hell out of that Kong script. Which has had more re-writes than my grad school thesis.

I am aware that there is a relationship of mutual back scratching without which most charities would get much less support from celebs. I still find it implausible however that he could fly to S Sudan in March and insist that this was not publicised until it coincided with his publicity for ISTL etc. If the UN wouldn't give Clooney the speaking gig he wanted then it isn't a total pushover is it? Clooney is a bigger star and for several years donated his Nespresso fees to monitoring the human rights situation in Sudan. TH has no profile like that to speak of and is nowhere near as big a star. I imagine it has something to do with the I agree totally pointless and narcissistic global goals - which can't possibly have been engineered by Luke to coincide with this month as they involve so many people. Also fundamentally Luke is a shit publicist. Does he really have the wit to do this? And even if he did does TH really strike one as such a calculating and conniving arsehole that he would say "yeah I'll go to Sudan but only if you release a licky press release just when I am pushing for an Oscaaaaar." I don't believe that of him - yet.

632 Name: Anon. : 2015-09-27 19:12 ID:g7mIS63y

>>631 That is exactly the sort of agreements that are made with these partnerships. LdC made his speech in late September of 2013. It coincided with the start of his award campaign for TWOWS and DjUc. He joined IG on the same day. It was covered by broad and tabloid sheets. The Wall Street Journal was one of several big outlets that made mention of the opportune timing.

As I understand it, Clooney was refused a full assembly speech because he wouldn't commit to more trips on behalf of his position. Yes, there were negotiations to that backscratching program. And his 'spy program,' which was funded by most of his proceeds from his coffee commercials, was separate from the UN. Yep, GC ran a spy program - it really was just a single satellite that kept track of a man accused of crimes against humanity - like most of GC's movies.

eh .. UN anon here... to clarify: UNICEF (like the WFP, UNHCR and a whle lot of agencies) are, at the end of the day, entities / part of the UN.

I think that we need some sort of forum like the UN but I think years of working, have led me to be a tiny bit cynical about the trumpet blowing that all of the agencies do. UNICEF is actually one of the more productive UN agencies on the ground tbh.

To the best of my knowledge, no agency/organization is obliged to publically announce visits or anything of that nature .. UN / UNICEF probably have their own rules. I can assure you that many times, the organisation I worked with did cross borders and the only people who might have been aware, were the bosses in the HQ.

That set aside... back to Mr Hiddleston. :) I can only guess that they / he are waiting for an opportunity to raise the profile of the country with his visit. Perhaps it was better in terms of security, that he wasn't blogging everything he saw there. Perhaps he was a bit upset by what he saw there.. who knows... perhaps the S Sudanese kids were just really glad to have a visit from Loki. If they had electricity... and a telly. It just seems rather funny that the details of his visit were actually out there for 6 months before anyone got wind of it in the fandom :)

I am really not sure what to make of the script .. I can only guess that as a working actor who still has to audition for parts, he is happy to accept what he can get (which is fair enough) and / or he is really keen to break out of a stereotype English uptight character. Whatever the case, I would be confident that he will bring the same class, professionalism and enthusiasm that he has shown for his other projects so far.. fingers, toes and nose crossed..

634 Name: Anon. : 2015-09-27 19:26 ID:g7mIS63y

>>631 The thing with Luke is that he seems to have only two default modes for publicity: society and humanitarian.

With people like Douglas Booth and Gemma Chan, it's been society - those two will show up to the opening of an envelope. Parties and catwalks - they'll be there. And their pics will end up in the DM.

With his higher profile clients, it's humanitarian. UN for EW and UNICEF for TH. That doesn't mean that they don't care for their respective campaigns. I think TH does - anyone willing to eat - not really live - on a quid a day, has commitment to a cause.

But, as you say, there's a strong mutual relationship between these charities and their respective supporters. So, It could very well be the case that Luke/TH and UNICEF decided that now would be the best time - for both of them - to talk about this trip. Otherwise, why not give it full mention - not a blurb in a circular - in the month it happened?

I dont thinkt that they have talked about anything to do with the trip ... from the sounds of it, Couch Potato found the photographs online by accident. The mention in the internal UNiCEF circular had the depth of a page 6 byline.

As a 'high profile" supporter, this was a very low profile visit...

And I very much would like to hope that Tom isn't in the "find me an NGO" crowd and that he genuinely has an interest in the work that UNICEF are doing outside of the favourable aura cast on his "brand" as a result. I may be a bit naive however..

Hello, UN anon!

I know that NATO is required as an international organization to note 'publicly' - newsletter and circular - the major/key movements of its employees. That includes troop movements, although those can be VAGUE - like 'western hemisphere' vague if security is a concern. If a member state doesn't wish for its troops' locations to be mentioned, NATO will bend to those requests. I'm sure you're correct that the UN has its own rules.

The UN is well-meaning, but just needs to rein it in. 'Let's end global poverty!' What? How? It's the equivalent of saying, 'Let's turn copper into gold, or air into gold!' Small steps, UN, small steps.

Yes, but what ISTL is missing is a giant CGI monkey!!

Once Godzilla vs Kong: Possibly Shit Movie II rolls around, the recipe will be perfected; it will have everything: TH, giant monkey, giant lizard, EO, MA to write the script and direct and produce!

They'll likely just cancel the Oscars and give them all to GvK:PSMII. Best actor: TH, Best Actress: Godzilla, BSActor: Kong, BSActress: EO.

Okay, I downloaded the NT Corio. commentary. The app itself has some interesting BTS photos (most already seen) and some short essays about various aspects of the play. There are also a few video interviews - many already seen too.

Corio. Audio Commentary:

It was good - not great. I think HF and PDJ stole the show as far as commentary went - they had plenty of funny and insightful moments. TH and DF were alright, but - say it with me - nothing to write home about. JR has got it going on! She's bright, thoughtful, funny and confident.

There were a lot of silent stretches in the commentary. Most commentary I've listened to has a running dialogue. This one certainly had a lot of quiet time to listen to/watch the play. More BTS info and discussion would have been welcome.

TH has some insightful comments. And he mentions his hips being in a harness - a very cheap thrill, but worth the download price!

Finally, when asked to translate 'anonna plebis,' he got it wrong. It's probably been a while since he's translated any Latin, so I'm more than willing to cut him some slack, especially since he's a hot piece.

If you must have all things TH or Coriolanus, download it. If not, you'll be fine passing this one up.

>>669 I have a BA in Classics - my MA is in Government with an emphasis on International Relations, however, I did graduate work in Classics when I could.

Annona is just one of those obscure Latin words that you don't run across a lot. It means 'share' or 'portion' - so that 'annona plebis' would be 'the share of the plebians.' It's referring to their grain share - or corn dole, as you Brits would call it.

TH got the genitive 'plebis' correct, but translated 'annona' as 'grain price.'

Like I said, I'm going to let it slide. He can mis-translate whenever he wants!

That is interesting. My hubby translated it as "corn portion". I could see it was not a literal translation but it sounds as though he was bang on in terms of its actual meaning.

I agree, though I suspect it was heavily edited and that TH actually said a hell of a lot more than we heard.

I think they were worried about people watching the play for the first time with the commentary (hence trying to avoid plot spoilers), and spent a lot of time glossing the plot and the themes at a surface level - sort of like Cliff Notes - rather than getting into the interesting technical details or even funny anecdotes about the experience of the run.

I doubt anyone is going to listen to the commentary the first time they watch the play, it'll surely mainly be listened to by people who have seen it before or listened to in isolation after people have seen it for the first time. So I think they probably pitched it wrong. Still, it's an interesting innovation and I did like hearing the few backstage details we got, like the wire and the harness - both of which were completely invisible to me - and about how they adapted the text for the production.

>>702 She is this 19, or 20, french girl that was doing a year of stage in London and TH followed her on twitter (that's how she got fans attention), because she was friend with someone who work at the Donmar theatre or with an American journalist (I truly don't remember). Every time TH starts following someone she does too - she tweeted to HR's assistant costume designer after TH followed her, telling her that they should be friend. If TH gets involved in something, she starts tweeting about it too. When she was in London for her stage, she was always going to G&W, the nw3 woman had a internet argument with her.
I was just reading at the bycycle that she went to Paris for CP premiere and she was staying at the same hotel as TH&co and as a result Olly now follows her on twitter - no idea how they know it was the same hotel. So I was expecting a twitter/tumblr mob against her (it happened before). Look in the 2nd or 1st thread there was more as well as her name.

I remember wearing a Metallica t-shirt because the guy I liked was in love with the band. I wore that t-shirt once a week for half a school year! Cringe.

"Marvel Studios has found its director for the third Thor film, and it’s a bit of an unlikely choice. Per The Wrap, Flight of the Conchords director Taika Waititi is in negotiations to take the helm of Thor: Ragnarok."

>>751 Well I watched it. Old wine in new bottles I felt. The Owen Wilson impression. Heat (scene between RDN and Al Pacino). The Campaign for Moah Male Nudity in CP. TH had the grace to go a little pink at doing his impression of RDN in front of RDN. RDN was pretty monosyllabic, but good natured, gracious and slightly bewildered at having him and KB fangirling all over him. AH gave good value and came across as pretty norma. Overall as far as TH was concerned it was a superficial "greatest interview hits".

The funniest part by far was Graham Norton's impression of Ian McKellen using a self-service checkout in Waitrose (British supermarket).

There was a bonus clip of shirtless Ken from Frankenstein. God, he looked buff. Rawr. His current beard is a bit too much Captain Birdseye for me though.

The HELLO article seems new to me. He mentions MA in one answer, saying that he said something to him 'the other day.'

Also, the War Horse London premiere (Jan. 2012) is referenced as 'a few years back.'

I think it seems old because TH recycles answers - like most actors who give interviews 50, 100, 200 odd times a year.

His clothes aren't new and his answers aren't either.

The bicycle woman tries hard to prove Elizabeth and Tom lied about not dating each other. I'm totally lost in her theories, and have no idea what they are trying to say there. Why is she so invested in that?

771 Name: anonymous : 2015-10-04 03:13 ID:m/94sx4r

>>770 I didn't know whether to mention this, so glad you did. I think that she/he scored a little "coup" with the sneaky pic of the two in his neighbourhood (more so after it was leaked to a local rag of a paper). The crowing went on for awhile as her site had the "exclusive" or whatever.

I guess that it is a tad humiliating to be proven incorrect, hence the persistent fixation on proving that THEO are a thing... anyway, good luck to her. I think that at this stage (with both categorically denying anything), she is clutching at straws.

I stumbled upon the TBC when I first got into the fandom. I read it for a while, then drifted away. I also found the teatime blog and read it for awhile before stopping.

I stopped reading both for the same reason - their MO is to post any and all submissions and then add their - usually baseless and uneducated - opinions. They both do it. The blogger on TBC posts everything - the out-there theories tend to come from submissions - and then she'll agree or disagree. It's all wild hypothesis and pure opinion. I like speculation as much as the next, but it's only speculation - real grain of salt stuff.

Also, I sometimes think that some of these blogs like to shock-jock along to get/keep followers and readers. She's probably not invested in TH (I noticed that her header now has every male star under the sun!), but in her number of followers and hits. I'm sure those can be a real drug for the right kind of person.

Now for bed, it's been a LONG week.

>>771 well they try to prove that they are dating because of Hello article. And I noticed one poster says even something like " Tom confirmed he is dating Olsen in hello article, why did she denied it?!" I laughed hard at that because Toby readers are sometimes ... not the cleverest people with lack of understanding what they read, but that's how the rumor mill starts.

775 Name: Anon : 2015-10-04 06:42 ID:ACqKSePP

>>771 Yes this.
The Bycycle began life as a blog called antisusie devoted to writing pernicious and libellous stuff about his then girlfriend Susanna Fielding. It had distinct hints of the more mad stuff one sees about EO (calling her bitch, whore etc).
Then the writer abandoned that blog and moved to its current location in ?2013 about the time he was seen at Wimbledon with JA. No particular party line on her though TBC did have a "source" called "nw3anon" and debate has subsequently raged about whether this source and the later blogger were the same.
At that time (late 13 early 14) TBC had one or two "dishes" from anons that sounded pretty well informed - and at least one utterly inprobable line that had in turn been fed to the anon supplying it by someone who was emailing her pretending to be TH. In general the party line was that TH was a recreational class A drug user and sex fiend with a serious commitment problem and a devotion to porn. The stated object of the blog at that time was to debunk the Disney prince image (why, who knows).
She developed a side line in publishing and debunking the madder Cumberbatch allegations about how there was no baby and it was all a sham, when TH went dark in late 2014 and there was nothing else to talk about. Also at about this time nw3anon blog started and took some of her followers so she started calling them all nannies and invested (and God how I hate the use of this word outside the context of financial instruments). She carried this line (you are all crazy nannies not to believe) over into the EO story without really missing a beat - current "thoughts" are exacerbated by the fact that the pic was her scoop and greatly exacerbated by her calling everyone who didn't believe nannies for the last 3 months.

Americans seem to have a hard time getting their heads round this. The New Yorker, despite all its fact checkers, still persists in calling The Times "The London Times" which is neither its name nor an accurate description of its circulation.

777 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-04 07:29 ID:Heaven

>>768 my problem is that the whole article is in contradiction
"the other day with MA" means TIFF, but at TIFF they denied dating so why would Hello say he doesn't want to talk about it? And is a teenage mag as Hello even going to be at TIFF?
Then there's TH saying all his family lives in London, but all his family does NOT live in London, except for his little sister.
This is why it sounds a bit fake to me.

778 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-04 07:36 ID:Heaven

>>770 she doesn't like to be wrong. Her stance on things is the one that is most annoying to fans, and she changes it accordingly. If tomorrow we were all going to say yes he is dating EO we are so happy, she'll be hell bent to prove they are not. She did the same with JA or Sian or SF.

I think it's a cut-and-shut job - they've mixed together some quotes from TIFF interviews with some older interview quotes to make it sound like they actually talked to him. It's quite common for these kind of magazines and websites to essentially cut-and-paste from other sources, as long as all the quotes are genuine and they make up some copy around it they can get away with it.

It's also one of the reasons why magazines that genuinely get interviews tend to shoot some video for their website at the same time, and why reputable websites point out when the were involved in a round-table interview - it makes it clear that they were genuinely there and not just copying from other sources, since the actor is likely to be saying much the same things in every interview.

I personally recognize the quotes from Elle interview and others as well. But now they say "they change the replies! THEO is still on! What 're they trying to do!"

I don't know for certain, but I think TNY probably calls yours Times 'The London Times' so not to confuse it with The New York Times, which they often refer to as The Times...because, you know, NYC is THE most important city in the world, so there's clearly only one 'The Times.'

And TNY shouldn't be legitimized by their fact checkers, but derided for the fact that now they only get a mention for their cartoons.

789 Name: Anon. : 2015-10-04 14:15 ID:g7mIS63y


No one likes to be wrong, so that's certainly part of it. I also think that she may genuinely believe that they were/are together. Some people will take their denial at face value and move on. Some people will continue to wonder, and some will just flat out not believe them. People, like the TBC blogger will continue to fight their side no matter what - that's human nature. Some people believe that TH is gay, and even though he's said he isn't, and others have as well, they still refuse to think otherwise.

>>789 Genuine and the bycycle blog shouldn't exists int he same sentence :) It could also be a case of "we'll make this true but constantly repeating it is". It's what some fans were doing with JA, but in that case she decided against it. It's like when she insists TH and SF broke up in nov. 2011, it's not true, but everyone goes along with it.

>>776 I think the DM is rag-ish, but it has its own unique qualities. And while I'm American, I have some insight. I used to live in London during the early 2000s. I lived in Edgware and worked near Whitehall. Every morning I would pick up the DM, The Sun and the Guardian and read/skim them on the tube. The British suits in the office thought is was an amusing mix of news sources - didn't stop them from catching a free peek at Page 3.

I got just as much 'news' from the tabloids as the broadsheet. The DM and Sun have real news - it's presented with their own leanings, like all papers, but it's news. They just happen to have a generous helping of Big Brother/reality star articles, WAG and royal coverage, and 'leggy display' rubbish as well.

>>792 It's widely read - internationally as well now it has such a successful website. The reason I call it a rag is because it purports to report news but is frequently factually inaccurate, in a manner which leads me to think it is deliberate. There's about as much commitment to accuracy in the "news" as there is is in the celebrity stories, but it hides under this cloak of respectability which makes its inaccuracy (in my view) more pernicious because harder to spot.

Also it supported the British Fascist party during the 30s and remains covertly and at times almost overtly anti-Semitic in its editorial line.

795 Name: Anon : 2015-10-04 16:03 ID:ACqKSePP

>>788 Call it the UK Times then - but I think it is more that there is just no notion of a national newspaper in the U.S. Hardly surprising given the logistics of printing and delivering one paper throughout the country. Whereas the UK is so small that we can all stand together and read one copy of a broadsheet.

796 Name: Anon. : 2015-10-04 16:44 ID:g7mIS63y

>>794 Oh, it is definitely anti-ferener (foreigner). And their current coverage of the refugee/immigration crisis does echo the general anti-Semitic talk of the paper in the 1930s. Strangely, it tends toward the pro-Israeli side on international issues.

If you're talking in general/specifically about the Miliband article - unfair on all grounds, in my opinion - I think that was a matter of the DM's anti-leftist sentiments rather than outright anti-Semitism. Their follow-up editorial, however, oh, yeah, that was anti-Semitic.

PS Psst, TH is totally anti-Semitic and racist, and a horn-dog and - whatever else. Pass it on!

>>796 Weighing in ... The Daily Fail/Mail whatever is the flagship of the Murdoch press (together with the Sun).

Imagine Faux news on, printed on paper or online with a UK bent. Absolute tripe. The editorial team do not even bother to check for simple spelling errors before publishing (let alone factual accuracies). One example being the utter rubbish they printed about Tom's Oxford visit with EO (when the stalker photos were taken in London). Actually .. they published the bicycle's stalker photos - so - I take all things from that source with a mighty pillar of salt. The sentiments are: anti-Muslim anti-Polish (Pole being the most readily targeted pre-representatives of the scary "Europe". Pro UKIP / anti Europe and only marginally on the border of the stuff being sprouted by Radio Television Libre des Mille Collines (google it) imho.

The comments sections are a useful barometer of often the most ignorant sectors of the British population .. oh ..and the BC tea party brigade.

The Mail isn't as Murdoch paper, its majority shareholder is Viscount Rothermere. It pretends to be high-brow compared to the Sun and the other tabloids, but their political views are quite similar - very right-wing (for the UK, which is not as right-wing generally as the US), conservative, and xenophobic.

Murdoch owns The Sun and The Times.

>>804 Tom apparently has no clue how old he is - he mentions he's 32 (this was filmed in 2013), but he says he was 14 when Much Ado was in theaters in 1993, and says he was a certain age in another year (I can't recall it off the top of my head) that would have required him being born in 1980 rather than 1981. He has admitted to being terrible at math so I suppose that's probably it, but do you think he could have been born earlier than 1981? Fibbing about one's age isn't exactly unheard of in Hollywood.

812 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-06 05:58 ID:Heaven

>>811 no because the year of his birth is also listed on the Peerage website as 1981. I just think it's a matter of memory even more than bad math. Like when he told that story about surprising his gf in Paris and missing an audition, and everyone thought it was because he got the station wrong.

862 Name: anonymous : 2015-10-09 22:25 ID:KzgVmYQs

Eh.. so here is my High Rise impression - the film is def out there - very challenging source material and very very very dark humour. It now has a distribution date in the UK but it will 110% not appeal to the average family /Marvel devouring public (or probably most of the public, to that effect).
Lots of Tom bonking and actually everyone bonking plus a (for me) extremely disturbing scene with Sienna Miller. Tom, Sienna and especially Elisabeth Moss were amazing - I didn't even recognise Elisabeth in the first scene she was in (her accent was very good). The analogy to A Clockwork Orange (the film) is accurate to some extent, though with the sex and violence turned up to 11. I was actually rather glad when it finally ended.

Others have reported on the Q&A: about 20 minutes with Ben Wheatley and the cast taking the stage. Questions asked were (wisely perhaps) chosen from twitter in advance and were relatively tame: "Where any real dogs damaged?" "Where the cast psychologically affected by what they were filming" (answer no to both). "Why did you choose to film inside Bangor Leisure Centre" (1970s building) and so on. Ben was the person who suggested that Tom do his Northern Irish accent (which he did) and bless .. he certainly seemed sure of himself on stage and was a tiny bit verbose , though his costars also had the chance to talk. Sienna Miller was actually rather funny and seemed less restrained on stage. Elisabeth Moss seemed very shy..

and on a snark-free note: Frenchie and friend were there as fans... they def don't deserve the abuse heaped on them last week (imho).

863 Name: anonymous : 2015-10-09 22:27 ID:KzgVmYQs

oh .. also: Luke Evans was in turns hilarious, disturbing and sported an extremely 70s moustache (in the film) - major respect. It was also somewhat strange to see audience members done up tot the nines sitting next to people in jeans and t-shirts :)

Many critics have given the film high praise! Mark Kermode tweeted that he's firmly in the LOVE camp.

I saw it last night, and as suspected some of the confused critics from TIFF mis-read it because they're astonishly dense about class (honestly, they keep describing Laing as a man who fits in with the upper floor residents and the lower floor residents - this is not true at all, he is kicked out of the penthouse party!) and expected a conventional story structure. The Snowpiercer comparisons are way, way off - it's nothing like Snowpiercer, which has a logical structure and premise. High Rise is not like that at all - it's a darkly funny satire. It's absolutely batshit crazy and doesn't attempt to be accessible or logical.

It's a dream-like experience - time is compressed into montages, we jump around from event to event and floor to floor, and people do things that are simply bizarre as if they're completely normal.

I loved it. Not everyone will, though.

870 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-10 08:41 ID:6aGhoq1P

>>869 I doubt the journalist of the Guardian being British is dense about class system. Critics at TIFF come froma variety of countries.

The main critic moved to this film is based on a book and the film fails to represents the book, the book isn't a funny satire, at all. That's why I was asking specifically about that.

871 Name: anonymous : 2015-10-10 10:11 ID:KzgVmYQs


I hadn't read the book before (and not sure that I am in the right frame of mind to read it now that I have seen the film), so I just saw the movie as a member of the non-Ballard reading class (though I did love "Crash" in it's own demented way).

The film is really really out of mainstream, so I think that the people to whom it appeals may not necessarily be the ones reviewing it. I thought that Tom and Luke's performances were outstanding (as well as Sienna Miller's) so on that note, I would recommend seeing it. Jeremy Irons was good though with his smock he reminded me of his "Dead Ringers" character.

The only performance that struck a slightly off note, was James Purefoy - he seems to specialise in nasty upper class characters and though he was essentially comic relief, I thought he was hamming it up a tiny bit at certain times (I could almost see him smirking).

I forgot to mention how cool Clint Mansell's score was and the wonderful, wonderful way he appropriated everyone's favourite 70s Swedish pop phenomenon (SOS is still in my head).

For Frenchy - innocuous as any other somewhat rabid fan. But that .. an excited fan. Even if she weren't (and I am NOT suggesting this) I personally don't support the vitriol directed against anyone Tom might be linked with as it is slut shaming of the worst kind.

Finally: I didn't want to mention this last night as the event was still on but the afterparty was held at .. The Royal British Institute of Architecture! I thought that was extremely clever ..

890 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-10 20:24 ID:Heaven

"At the risk of sounding like a broken record: Tom does look better in person than on photos. He’s very tall, very slender (without being thin), has a really slim face (somehow I’m always struck by this fact), and his smile is just radiant. There were lots of autograph hounds where we were standing, and they all stuck their big glossy pictures in his face…and then there was me with my Coriolanus play text. When he saw that, he looked up at me, beamed like a lit christmas tree and said “Wow!” at which point my brain flatlined and all I could stammer was a thank you. Emma was there, and she and Luke greeted each other with the longest hug. It was so bloody sweet. Diana was also there, as were Olly and Faisal. There was another big hug for Luke when Tom arrived. And I mean a BIG hug. I loved seeing that. Luke looks really gorgeous himself, by the way. Tom was the last to arrive and things went a bit nuts when he got out of the car. There could be no doubt whatsoever who was the star of the evening. He wore his glasses during the Q&A, but you’ve already seen that of course. I filmed the whole thing, by the way, but I think it’s already up on You Tube anyway. LOL Sienna Miller is totally smitten with Tom. She was awfully touchy-feely during the Q&A, hanging onto Tom’s arm all the time. Tom wasn’t really responsive to this, which I found interesting. She was lovely, though. Funny, self-deprecating, obviously really happy to be a part of this. Ben was cheeky as always. There was applause as the end credits rolled. Oh yeah, and I loved the film."

I believe the others are all taped ahead of time, but I'm not sure how far in advance - maybe a day or two, or the morning of. The View, Colbert, and Trevor Noah are all based in NYC so that's where he'll be this week.

There's a Crimson Peak event happening too with GDT and the cast... odd that Jessica Chastain is being billed as the top celeb guest.

>>911 that's why we need better journalist for these press tours, someone that could ask "didn't you say you believed in ghosts?".

Thanks, that's a lot to pre-record, I hope they'll be good interviews. Maybe because Jessica is more popular in the US?

What the journalist was referring to in this video >>888

"Across the street and down an alley, Tom Hiddleston was a true British gentleman at F-Stop. When I arrived at the party, he was dutifully standing in the rain on the steps, making sure the gaggle of photographers outside didn't go home hungry. This on a night where many an A-lister skipped film and party red carpets, possibly due to the weather. Inside the bash, Hiddleston was immediately surrounded by a flock of women who migrated with his every move. Impressively, the high-cheekboned heartthrob took photos and the time to talk with just about everyone. One proud mother encouragingly screamed "whooo!" and "you go girls!' at her daughters as they posed with the actor. How embarrassing, mom!

Around the corner, Hiddleston's rumoured love interest and costar appeared at the second after party for their film, I Saw the Light, at The Addisons Residence. Yes, sometimes films have not one, but two or more after parties. Unlike her other half, Olsen was not in the mood to make nice with party guests, instead keeping to herself in a booth."

From what I sort of read of the reviews, the ones that gave a good ranking did so mainly for the visual.
No wonder Universal didn't want to pay for budget, this might actually bomb at the box office.
And I thought this film was the safest one.

So it might be that TH statement about Loki and Marvel have to do with the fact that Loki won't be such a presence in Thor3

Kermode and Mayo's Film Review with Tom Hiddleston

942 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-15 17:06 ID:Heaven

“It’s not set in the ’30s,” said Hiddleston at Wednesday’s premiere of “Crimson Peak.” “There’s no movie director with a map. There’s no out-of-work actress down on her luck. All of that stuff is respected, we’re just trying to do something new with the myth because Kong is an icon of movies. I think he’s someone people want to see again.”

"Hiddleston didn’t spill about whether or not the film would unfold in the 1970s as some news outlets have reported, but he did say he was flying to the set on Sunday to begin shooting."

Maxim's review. Don't read because of spoilers, but do read for the hilarity:

'The love story between Thomas and Edith is contrived; a multi-second shot of Hiddleston’s ass flexing as he’s inside Wasikowska duringtheir first consummation helps salvage some of this.'

'The closing fight scenes are ridiculous, but the final scene introduces new levels of special effects that were so laughable I wasn’t sure I was in a movie theater anymore, so much as one of my usual erotic fever dreams about Hiddleston.'

957 Name: Anon : 2015-10-16 21:15 ID:ACqKSePP

>>956 Hilarious! I've seen the sex scene on tumblr and:

(a) it reveals precious little beyond what we saw on the trailer. It is BY NO MEANS a Fassbender-esque blow for equal nudity.
(b) it attempts a little bump and grind but about 8 inches higher than it ought to be so it looks most unrealistic.
(c) he has this weird rumba like round and round and side to side motion going on.
(d) no pokey stick. Guillermo, we knew you were trolling us at ComicCon.
(e) it is very romantic with slushy music to help us understand that they lurve each other. Rather to my surprise the kinky predatory throwdown hinted at in the trailer is missing.

b) Is he trying to have sex with her belly button? Maybe TH IS a virgin like some of his fans think - I mean, if he's going to town on her navel.

c) You just know he's totally one of those 'round the world' types - as I call them. Hips every which way and then some. Not a bad thing, but sometimes unnecessary.

960 Name: Anon : 2015-10-16 21:38 ID:ACqKSePP

SPC must think us all idiots. Up until TIFF, when we all knew TH would start filming Kong from mid-October questions about an Oscar race were ok, after TIFF, they move the release date because of his schedule. Truth is SPC isn't willing to bet on TH's performance. But let's say it's schedule.

Does this mean that if TH gets a nomination for the Evening Standard Awards at the end of November he won't show up? ;)

I think this group needs to be official disbanded and banned - like the Japanese govt. does with certain religious cults.

I agree that - as a group - they do some very good things: the UNICEF fundraising was generous. But, I also think that it wasn't purely philanthropic. They seemed to have made a very big show of their fundraising: tweets, videos, special letters to UNICEF - all that was missing was the giant cheque. Self promotion should not be a part of true philanthropy. Methinks some attention seeking was in the off.

As it is, a majority of them now think of themselves as some sort of TH vanguard. If he's in an online poll - they send out the word to vote, vote, vote. SNL innocently asked who should host the show - every Hiddlestoner on twitter bombarded the account - for days. They tweet The Tonight Show and Jimmy Kimmel accounts, and the Ellen show as well - don't the producers of these shows know what their missing by not having TH as a guest?!?

At this point, they're addicts. They tweet to get him on shows so they can watch him on shows and then tweet/tumblr about the shows. They're chasing the dragon.

988 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-17 13:20 ID:Heaven

>>985 If there was any philanthropy it was just to hide their obsession. I think the reason why TH is mentioning UNICEF - as jokingly pointed out by Jessica in the Huffington video, before she realized how uncomfortable TH was with it - is to shift the focus from their obsessive behaviour.

All they do it's childish manipulation.
That woman at the Time Talk asking for a hug and saying "don't worry I have a husband" manipulated him, she asked something she knew she'd be refused so she added a semblance of normality.

The irony is that the more they behave like this, the more he gets asked, the more he gets annoyed at them.

JC's default setting is F&F - fun and flirty. And she does it so well, I think that's one of the reasons she's so likable. She was just as F&F on The Martian press tour as on CP's.

You're right, she's not making it seem like a thing - others are.
