About the name, yes it's anonymous and there's no need to invent a name or fill the name box, the board will give you one anyway. But, adding 1 number or letter to avoid confusione isn't that big an effort either.

ISTL premiere in Nashville, photos are up at Torrilla (has EO gained a lot of weight of recent?) and here's a short video of TH performing

20 Name: anonsy : 2015-10-18 07:23 ID:jUIKXB0p

>>19 I can never tell EO's weight because she has a tendency to wear clothes that make her look much bigger than she is. For example I would have thought she had gained a whole lot of weight between that award ceremony in Paris (when she wore the white dress) and the TIFF ISTL premiere (with the terrible black peplum gown) except that the events were only two days apart.

I hope we get some longer videos of Tom singing.

21 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-18 07:27 ID:Heaven

By the way, the fact that the film premiered in Nashville rules out that it will undergo editing for the march release. Or additional shootings, I don't see TH losing weight again.

24 Name: Anon : 2015-10-18 07:40 ID:tB216AlG

>>23 I was just thinking this - seeing the effort they went to to organise this premiere, I'd say it was until very recently meant to be the actual premiere (with TH making a special effort to fly to Nashville despite his busy schedule!!), with a general release following. Someone got cold feet at SPC.

25 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-18 07:42 ID:Heaven

>>24 that is my thinking too, knowing TH won't be available in Nov. this was meant as the actual premiere, the way they did advanced screenings of CP so TH could be present.

26 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-18 12:31 ID:Heaven

Since I can't find a video of Colbert Late Show (except for the short clip about TH's showing his English countryside in CP), here a clip of when he left the the Late Show

27 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-18 13:22 ID:Heaven

I thought the striped suit photoshooting would appear in Nov. instead GQ showed now, although there's no interview, at the moment.

28 Name: Anon. : 2015-10-18 17:12 ID:nc3D2eWc

As the director introduced the film’s star, Tom Hiddleston, a member of the audience yelled out, “Loki!”—referring to the character he portrayed in the popular Marvel movies The Avengers, Thor and others. The English actor hesitated, smiled and said, “Thank you. I hope after you see this film that you might instead say, ‘Hank.’”

No wonder he says he doesn't know anything about Thor 3 - he wants to pretend he doesn't have to do another and give the Loki-obsessives more traction.

29 Name: Anon. : 2015-10-18 17:21 ID:asIUBMMv


There certainly won't be more shooting. I remember reading somewhere that re-shoots are some of the most expensive outlays in movie production - and thus only done when the movie wouldn't make it to the screen without them. It was in an article regarding the J. Roberts and C. Zeta-Jones movie.

But maybe some re-editing might be in the off. Several reviewers said there were no transitions between scenes, no cohesiveness to the whole movie - maybe a truly talented editor can help that.

I find it hard to believe that a 2 hour movie has no transitions. What the hell is going on for 2 hours?

30 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-18 17:23 ID:Heaven

>>28 Quite. ISTL bad reviews and new release date must have been a disappointment for TH. CP, HR and ISTL especially were supposed to change how the public perceived him (fangirls not included), instead ISTL will be seen by few, as HR, and CP isn't doing great, so there goes his hope that they won't think of Loki as soon as they see him.

At this point TNM will probably help more in this regard than these 3 films.

33 Name: Anon. : 2015-10-18 19:03 ID:Om64F/8B


I think HR and CP might be doing what he/his people wanted them to do. HR is meant to be his artistic and edgy movie - like Kubrick's ACO. CP is his more mainstream "I can do dark beyond Loki' movie. Reviews are mixed for both, but aren't they so often?

But I'll agree that ISTL - which was likely meant to be his awards-bait biopic - is probably not going to go to plan - even if SCP gives is a good campaign and re-release in Dec. 2016.

Now TNM - there's an interesting one. It very well could be his Bond audition. And maybe he's hoping for Bond. At this point, it would be the only franchise that could overshadow his connection to the Marvel franchise! But another franchise could be a vicious circle for him. Instead of 'LOKI,' they'll all be shouting 'BOND' when he walks on stage.

GQ article. Is for CP, not HR or ISTL.

36 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-18 20:16 ID:Heaven

>>33 I agree with you that as far as people in the business are concerned all three movies did great to show his range. But the normal movie-goer won't see a single one of this film, ISTL is bad movie, CP isn't good enough and HR will have a very limited distribution.
So to the general public he is still Loki. Did you see that AOL talk, when the old guy at the end says that he would like to see TH playing Prince Hal and Henry V? And the Hollow Crown was on PBS (I think).

TNM can do wonders about this, because the right has been sold all over the world, so if it's good it's going to help a lot.
I don't think he is hoping for Bond because you are right, vicious circle and very demanding.

37 Name: Anon : 2015-10-18 20:18 ID:j5S+uBeh

How could I? In 2020, Godzilla and Kong will come together!! I hope TH and EO's love will get another chance then! Nothing can bring two star-crossed lovers together like a movie based on a wrestling match between an overgrown monkey and an overgrown lizard.

PGG 2: Revenge of the Scarf - I'm calling it now. The scarf - surprisingly wrapped around EO's neck and not covering her face - gets tangled up in bars of the gate and starts to choke her. TH comes to her rescue by using the lens of his glasses to cut her free.

It's going to be awesome!! And then MA is going to turn it into a terrible movie.

TH goes through the gears speaking about his three upcoming films.

Interesting in this is that the presenter says HR is due for a January release and ISTL for February.

43 Name: Anon. : 2015-10-19 01:33 ID:X9irYl99

The internet can't decide if some of these are manips or the real thing. It doesn't help that the only source seems to be in Thai or Vietnamese.

Either way, the last one in the series is gorgeous! TH needs to let some of those blond curls come back in, or use less product in his hair. And he needs to wear more white shirts.

I'm sure Torilla will have HQs in 3...2....

44 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-19 06:00 ID:Heaven

>>42 No it wasn't thanks.

>>43 They are up at Torrilla haha, photos by by Matthias Vries-McGrath so they are for real, although I think the blondiness of his curl in one of the photos was greatly exaggerated.

Torrilla has also the scans of the Episodi Mag interview.

45 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-19 06:12 ID:Heaven

If you want the exact numbers for CP go to boxofficemojo. if an article is enough here's Variety's and Forbes's

It bombed, overseas too - in most countries it's been released already. Variety only considers the production budget but I would double that because the press tour has its costs too. SO it' even worse, than the article says.

46 Name: Anon : 2015-10-19 06:19 ID:FZa1zTW7

>>43 Gorgeous - I think it doesn't usually look like this due to overuse of product and his insistence on having his hair blow dried like Beaker. You can see how blonde it is in the creepy HuffPo video.

>>45 What a day it is when $12.8m is a flop. My view is that they spoilered it out of existence. I haven't seen it yet because I have worked out what happens just from their material, not from reviews.

Interesting that TH superfans are a fussy lot as well and/or not actually so numerous that they are capable of making a movie open big. Tumblr was full of 18 year olds saying they weren't into horror and banging on about their abuse triggers (by the way how do these people deal with the Internet/life more generally? My husband tells me that someone at a Scottish university complained she had not been wanted about rape triggers - in Ovid!!).

50 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-19 07:25 ID:Heaven

>>49 The number of his hardcore fans doesn't equal the number of his twitter followers, clearly. Social networks and all the chat makes it seems like there's more than there really is.
In fact, this also proves that his fans lie when they say they are fans because of his work, that's just to cover their obsession for him. The only part of the film they were probably interested into was his naked butt.

Ovid! Goodness.

51 Name: Anon : 2015-10-19 07:43 ID:j5S+uBeh

>>50 I've thought that for a while. I how long it will take studio execs to realise that being a tumblr darling does not necessarily equate to big box office. Sections of Tumblr also didn't like HR (dog eating triggers) or ISTL (rubbish movie triggers/who is Hank and why should I care?).

52 Name: Anon : 2015-10-19 08:00 ID:j5S+uBeh

>>50 And even the butt was not enough to make $20m at the box office. We saw most of it in the trailer anyway.

53 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-19 08:23 ID:Heaven

>>51 If they didn't before they will now. Of the three CP, sold as GdT latest masterpiece, was supposed to be the blockbuster.
TH presence and his English countryside were supposed to bring all his fangirls to the cinema, that's how they promoted it. Someone misunderstood the Coriolanus rabid crowd and the queue of fans outside CP's studio as tickets, I think.

I hope the same mistake won't be made for the promotion of TNM and its sex scene.

>>71 As someone who has personally dealt with trauma, I get very angry when I see people on tumblr abuse the concept of "triggers" and now they're bringing it into real life as well. They are either misunderstanding and misusing the term, or if they have actually been through a traumatic event they are leaning on "trigger warnings" as a crutch and should instead be seeking some sort of therapy.

From Mental Health America:
"Certain things seem to set off my symptoms of PTSD. What can I do to control these triggers?
For people with PTSD, it is very common for their memories to be triggered by sights, sounds, smells or even feelings that they experience. These triggers can bring back memories of the trauma and cause intense emotional and physical reactions, such as raised heart rate, sweating and muscle tension. Because these memories and feelings are unpleasant, you may have the urge to avoid the triggers. Avoiding things that make you uncomfortable is normal and will make you feel better in the short run. But in the long run, this avoidance will make things worse. If the pattern continues, you can make your problems worse. Instead of avoiding triggers, it is probably better to learn how to manage your reactions when they are triggered. Many forms of therapy are effective in treating PTSD. Cognitive behavioral therapy, in particular, can help you learn ways to reduce and manage your reactions to triggers."

For me, it was gradual exposure to the things that triggered episodes, and over time I have been able to get through most of them and am still working on the few I have left. But if I had kept yelling "trigger warning!" and hiding from the world I'd have made no progress toward recovery. Most of the time I feel these people just use the word "trigger" to refer to something that makes them uncomfortable rather than what it actually is, and it frustrates me to no end, because then when someone who is a combat veteran or a rape victim actually has something that IS a trigger that they may very well be trying to work through, the rest of the world is so used to the tumblr version of triggers that they ignore the requests or needs of people who are really dealing with PTSD.

74 Name: Anon. : 2015-10-19 20:37 ID:X9irYl99


I don't know when this was taken, I think originally it showed up on twitter on Friday, but if she was indeed papped at LAX, then this is perhaps old.

The guy obviously works for Delta and was her handler. In the tweet - I'll try to find it - he said she was nice and hoped she enjoyed NYC.

>>73 In the course of my work I have worked with quite a few people with sometimes very severe PTSD. I would never seek to belittle their condition. I'm really sorry to her you have experienced trauma in your life.

PTSD is fortunately relatively rare, with specific internationally recognised diagnostic criteria, and it is by no means an invariable consequence of trauma. There is a huge difference between experiencing a flashback, and seeing something in a movie that reminds you of a bad experience in your past which marks you feel sad/uncomfortable. The former is a symptom of a medical condition which requires help, and which should be taken very seriously, the latter is - part of the human condition. I agree with you that the Tumblr kids really seem to mean that they don't want to be exposed to things that might disturb them - they're not entitled to trigger labels to help them with that. Much great art/literature is disturbing, and designedly so. If you need labels to deal with that then the labels aren't the help you need.

78 Name: Anon. : 2015-10-19 21:10 ID:X9irYl99


I think what you've laid out is the heart of the matter - some people use them not because they've suffered/experienced these events and don't want to be reminded of the events. Instead, I fear some people are using them when they want to avoid subjects that they find difficult. Or worse, subjects that they'd like to think don't exist. Yep, nothing like denial. They'd like to trigger warning the dishes and exams and getting a job when, as you wrote, they are not meant to be used in this way.

That having been said - in the future, I need people to trigger warn the following: EO, gates, purses, UsWeekly and the veranda over at CB - what the hell are they on about with the veranda?

In all seriousness, well done on your recovery, anonsy; it sounds like you handled it and are handling it in a healthy and pro-active way. And thanks for being brave enough to share.

79 Name: anonsy : 2015-10-19 21:13 ID:6jcDRoeE

>>76 Thanks. :) I wasn't under the impression that anyone here was belittling those with actual PTSD, so no worries about that.

I think a lot of people these days are so afraid of feeling sad or uncomfortable in any way, and calling something upsetting a "trigger" makes it sound more important than just saying "this reminds me of my ex, I don't want to watch it" - which is still a valid feeling, but as you have said does not qualify as a trigger.

I have no idea. I feel like there might be a direct to Nashville from LAX - I'm not going to go to Delta to look!! I'm NOT.

However, I would think that a non-direct flight would go through Chicago - O'Hare or Midway - or through Atlanta in the south.

I don't think it would have gone from LAX to NYC to Nashville.

Maybe she went to NYC to see her sisters, maybe she went to see TH and sex him up HARD, maybe she went to pick up that horrible dress she wore. We can be sure she wasn't stopping off in NYC to get it tailored.

If there is something going on, or something that went on - you'd have thought TH would have whispered some sweet, sweet post-coital advice about getting clothes tailored properly. Geez, TH, give a girl some fashion advice if she's giving up her foofoo.

>>81 I went ahead and took one for the team - there is a direct flight from LAX to Nashville. The pic of EO with the Delta employee must be old, because she was definitely in LA the days leading up to the ISTL premiere. She was in Europe for some fashion thing earlier this month, I think, so maybe she stopped off in NYC then, or at least had a connecting flight in JFK. That would make sense.

Regarding his non-at-all-impromptu concert, why didn't he take off his jacket, roll up those sleeve, put a cowboy hat on - maybe pop some chaw in his cheek - and then sing.

Of even better, where was this?

Where were the tassels? And why didn't 'Audrey' get up for a romantic duet.

PR opportunity lost, Luke, lost. ;)

Knowing what little we do about the adorable try-hard - I'm surprised he let any of the other band members on the stage.

"I will play ALL the instruments. And I will end the set with a special song I wrote for my one true love.' EO advances toward the stage before Luke cuts her off carrying TH's cowboy boots.

Hang on a minute...
Am I too drunk or there are serious speculations about Eo/TH thing again and we are discussing it again on a serious matter? I mean what's wrong with the people, if both denied that they aren't an item, and clearly met each other as friends... I don't mean you, guys, I'm just surprised and slightly confused...

94 Name: anonsy : 2015-10-19 22:09 ID:6jcDRoeE

95 Name: Cabbage Anon : 2015-10-19 22:19 ID:2yPiKh2A

>>94 you mean that they won't stop gossiping until he gets married ?

I was always laughing hard about that story, but now it seems annoying. What else can EO and TH do to make sure that stupid people could finally believe they aren't an item?

I'm really confused.
I can't believe I'm saying it on a serious matter, but I never believed something was going on between them, at least not after fiasco with paps. They said they aren't dating, why can't everybody just chill out?

96 Name: Anon. : 2015-10-19 22:20 ID:X9irYl99

I regret not being around for JA. Strutting her stuff at Wimb., interacting with fans on twitter, favoriting Loki tweets and Bora Bora holiday tweets, the Cheshire cat grin in the restaurant pic - the girl had balls - and, by most accounts, an attention-seeking thirst to match TH's, and that's saying something.

All future GFs, FWBs, FBs will be but shadows on the cave.

97 Name: anonymous : 2015-10-19 22:22 ID:FFmbYiBL

>>93 The whole business was based on one word in the caption of a photo by one publication (US weekly), probably made by an copywriter who just read the previous headline that the publication had written.

Honestly - a storm in a tea-cup - maybe they have previously, are currently or will be shagging the brains out of each other BUT since they both recently publically stated that they are not in a romantic relationship with each other, I will give them a tiny bit of respect and believe them (and yes, people lie all the time etc. etc. etc.).

Now. Onto the muzeeec and the monkey.

98 Name: Cabbage Anon : 2015-10-19 22:39 ID:2yPiKh2A

I don't see the reason why would they lie. In that case Jassica was lying too when she denied the rumors that she and Tom weren't dating.

The following is my guess, but I did had a strange feeling that Tom wasn't comfortable around EO and she around him before they denied the rumors. Again, all what we saw -their interaction And etc - was in front of cameras, when the backstage reports said they were rather distanced from each other and didn't talk much. I'm talking about TIFF. I'm sure people are watching them like a hawk, and there is always someone sharing what they saw at a premiere, and IF THERE WAS SOMETHING we would know. As usual, we would always know, bed she when there is one person and thousands of eyes, nothing can be hidden.

On the other hand I watched crimson peak today...

99 Name: anonymous : 2015-10-19 22:45 ID:FFmbYiBL

>>98 Eh .. well in any case, I singularly and genuinely don't care too much about dissecting their every move and gesture. They did seem rather uncomfy at the TIFF probably because it was the first time they were officially seen together after the pap dinner from hell so maybe now that things have been cleared and sorted out, they can both relax and just be friends.

This begs the million dollar question : where oh WHERE was Luke in all of the photos coming out of the US? Does he only tail Tom in the UK? Enquiring minds need to know! (sarcasm intentional btw)

100 Name: Cabbage Anon : 2015-10-19 22:53 ID:2yPiKh2A

The posting of professional reviews from print and online sources is certainly welcome.

Personal thoughts on movies are also allowed, I'm sure.

However, please, be aware that some haven't seen the movie yet, so don't give away spoilers.

102 Name: Cabbage anon : 2015-10-19 23:26 ID:2yPiKh2A


All I can say is that the movie was amazing. Worth of every moment and and in couple of moments I had to close my eyes, and I'm not so easily scared! People are surely scarrier then ghosts! Lucille took my heart. That's for sure. I was rather indifferent for Edith, she isn't my cup if tea, but Mia was ok. The ending made me cry and I sobbed all the way home. Very good ending. Very good.

Tom referred to Edith as a sign for young women that they can be strong and independent and don't nee man to save them. Well, i from my personal view, would disagree. Edith only proved what I thought for a long time, that women can become strong and save themselves only when there is no help from aside. She saved herself because there was no one to save her. We may be strong and courageous but it's not because we want to, but because life makes us to. We become strong because we have no choice.

Amazing movie again. Totally will go and see it again.

>>89 I thought it was the photographer/s making the cast laugh because you see even TH looking ahead and laughing - And contrary to what CB posters say, EO wasn't putting her left hand on Tom's but on her right hand, you can clearly see her right arm wrapped around Abraham left arm.

>>91 tomorrow there'll be more, but it looks quite funny.

>>96 it was hilarious, because you could tell all her activity will end up in disaster but she went on and did it anyway. An adult woman, with her kind of job, wanting her name thrashed on the internet, a real show. Google Jane Arthy, among the first results you get her own tumblr tag.

115 Name: anonsy : 2015-10-20 19:53 ID:6jcDRoeE

>>113 I enjoyed it, and have found myself disagreeing with many of the reviews I've read. The BBC review >>114 Anon shared, for example, said a few things were irrelevant to the plot of the film that I thought were either completely necessary or at least added to the story and my understanding of the characters.

My only gripe is that if I had gone in expecting a full blown horror film I would have been disappointed. Because I had seen a few interviews where GDT and the cast emphasized the "Gothic Romance" aspect, I had a better idea of what it was going to be, but I think a lot of the trailers made it seem like there would be a lot of BOO! moments that just weren't there. This is really more a complaint about the advertising than the movie itself.

116 Name: Anon. : 2015-10-20 23:36 ID:X9irYl99

TH, JC and MW were on Charlie Rose tonight. There are a few teaser vids up on the CR youtube channel. They should post the whole interview soon - that is their policy in general.

Hopefully, Hiddlestoners were not mentioned. Loki may have been - CR tries to be pop-cultural like that on occasion.

If you really wanted a 9 minute video of TH doing HW, here it is.

Here is TH introducing ISTL in Nashville. Watch or skip to the end to witness EO's impression of a seagull as she tries to exit the stage and gets tangled up/cut off by TH.

The whole interview with Charlie Rose. MW gets in about 25 words. CR doesn't butcher MW's names, but he comes close. And CR also calls it Crimson Park...worst park EVER!

I'm working from home today - bit of a cold. So I thought I'd post a few things.

>>120 It has gone all hush-hush!

Brie and Tom, get on those romance rumors please! Start showing up at cafes in HI, start posting selfies together! Let's do this!

UsWeekly, do your job, too!

Well, if he's in it - 'I know nothing about it!' he insists again - he'll be off to Aust. after HI. If the next Marvel movies shoot out of London, and he's in them, TH could be away from dear ole Blighty for awhile.

EM says TH is a good dancer - You just know he asked for more dancing during filming.

I know, real breaking news, but we're getting near the bottom of the barrel.

122 Name: Anon : 2015-10-22 17:22 ID:tB216AlG

>>121 I saw Crimson Park today. Much better than the bad reviews would have one believe, though the plot was a trifle clunky. I could have guessed the main plot twist even without all the hints that were dropped by GdT. So I think could anyone who has read a few gothic novels.

It was pretty gory - so god knows about all those people saying "not enough of a horror movie".

I do however wish they hadn't released so much in trailers and clips. I realised as I was watching that I had seen parts of every major scene, bar the 2 that said in words of one syllable what was going on. That was a pity partly in spoiler-y terms but also because you like to feel you haven't seen the whole movie. For example it would have been nice to watch that beautifully acted scene with the automaton for the first time as part of the film. One other major consequence was that the ghosts were pretty unterrifying, in a kind of oh hello again way.

123 Name: Anon : 2015-10-22 18:03 ID:tB216AlG

>>121 And because I feel guilty about not posting many links I bring you the following. You thought we were at the bottom of the barrel, but there's a lot further to fall.

124 Name: qaz : 2015-10-22 18:21 ID:tY18OJ3i

I saw CP today too. I really wanted to like it, but... Well, don't get me wrong, it wasn't terrible, and I agree that it was probably better than the reviews said. Still, I felt kind of underwhelmed throughout the movie. I dragged a friend along (she's not a fan of TH, or of any other actor in CP, for that matter) and she got bored halfway through. I, of course, had the disadvantage of seeing the trailers and reading a couple of reviews, so sort of spoilered myself and take a part of the blame - maybe I would have liked it better if I haven't.

Those CGI ghosts were really ridiculous. After the movie my friend asked me if I understood why they looked the way they looked (I won't be specific to avoid spoilers if anyone hasn't seen the movie yet). You see, she kept waiting for the explanation of that in the plot and got none. All I could do is shrug my shoulders and say that the creators probably thought that they would be cooler or scarier that way :)

On the bright side - the visuals were beautiful. I loved the spooky deteriorating mansion, very atmospheric. TH was pretty.

125 Name: qaz : 2015-10-22 18:33 ID:tY18OJ3i

Oh, and a lot of people said that Mia was the blandest - I disagree, she seemed quite OK to me, considering that no one has delivered a noteworthy performance in that movie, TH included.

126 Name: Anon : 2015-10-22 19:25 ID:tB216AlG

>>124 does one need an explanation about why they look that way? I didn't see any spoilers explaining it but I kind of guessed from the story.

127 Name: Anon : 2015-10-22 19:30 ID:tB216AlG

>>124 I also thought the first sex scene was ridiculous in the context of where it wa meant to be in their relationship. And in the second one GDT bottled it. He should have been naked in that one.

Who hasn't seen it yet?

128 Name: qaz : 2015-10-22 19:52 ID:tY18OJ3i

>>126 OK, spoilers (minor).
She meant why most of them looked like half-decomposing, skinless, blood-dripping skeletons, more zombies than ghosts. I guess, she waited the story to explain that something REALLY GORY and terrible happened to them, not just "simple" killing. NB: She didn't see the trailer, hasn't watched any interviews or read reviews, so hasn't heard anything about "gothic romance, not horror", etc. The story just didn't seem very consistent to her, probably.
But actually, it's a minor detail, I just mentioned it because I also thought the ghosts were a bit cartoonish ant not scary. I think the movie would have benefited from something more subtle.

>>127 I won't dispute that :)

129 Name: anonsy : 2015-10-22 19:58 ID:X+vgMkyf

I thought the ghosts looked that way because of (SPOILER) where their bodies were buried. I'd be more specific but I don't want to accidentally ruin anything for anyone who hasn't seen it.

130 Name: Anon : 2015-10-22 20:11 ID:tB216AlG

>>129 I initially thought the same. But the vision generally seemed to be that when you cark it your ghost gradually goes skeleton (cf very end). There was another detail about one of the ghosts which made sense. Again saying no more due to spoilers.

131 Name: Anon. : 2015-10-22 21:35 ID:DUsp8Y9N


I haven't...but I'm okay with spoilers. I sometimes figure out plot lines halfway through movies. A quote from me to a friend the first time I saw The Sixth Sense in the theatre: 'So if the kid can see dead people, is Bruce Willis dead?' The kid said he could see dead people, I took him at his word!

And as you said, the trailers themselves have spoiled more than any postings. I've stayed away from Tumblr because I don't want to see the scenes themselves.

And then another saying that they met him but because it was a private event, he asked for no pics, just a hello and a chat. I imagined that it was for his sister's wedding. Apparently, he and others then rocked up at a pub - still in full wedding gear - later that evening.

I didn't post because I didn't 1) want anyone who lurks here to repost elsewhere and 2) for those twitter uses to be hit with the now obligatory Spanish Inquisition - Was it his wedding? Was he with a blonde? Was EO in a wedding dress? Did EO catch the bouquet?

I'm kind of sorry though that because of a silly delusional girl we have to hold back. But who knows, maybe it's better this way.

Anyway, since I was forced back for today I might make myself useful, here's a nice little interview with TH for an Italian radio.

While this is a translation of an interview for a Finnish mag

I have sooo many accounts blocked - spam accounts, kpop ghost accounts, hard core Loki-ites etc. - that his tag is long as he doesn't tweet and blow it up. I remember that I checked it one day after work, and there were 3,000 tweets relating to him. That's when I close the tab and walk away. I'll look at 30 tweets, not 3,000.

165 Name: Anon. : 2015-10-25 14:50 ID:7AOciUth

On a more distant prospect...having just watched the latest HIGNFY episode with Michael Sheen, does anyone else hope that TH might take a turn in the host's chair?

With the TNM coming up, it might be a nice promotional crossover. HIGNFY is consistently high in quality, and while I'm sure some Loki jokes would sneak in, it would be less cringey than some other appearances.

Also, it would be particularly pleasurable to see TH demonstrate some snark - as some hosts are required to do when delivering lines.

And EO could be a guest...just kidding!!!

An interesting article regarding CP, China and ghosts, i.d., superstitions.

I'm not one to think that financial failure = career blot, however, I'm sure TH, GdT and the powers that be at Legendary would like CP to make a healthy profit.

This is an interview for an Italian mag, the few things that were somehwat interesting - it's not a word for word translation.

  • he is aware the butt scene will make his fans happy, he calls it a collateral effect, but he did it because the script asked for it.
  • on CP set GdT had a ban on using smartphones, if you were caught it was a 5$ fine. TH was caught twice, 10$. With the money collected, at the weekend they'd do a lottery and the winner offered drinks.
  • he likes Italians and has a strong bond with Italy. His first visit was in Firenze when he was 16. Then at 18 and 20 with his gf and later at 25 in Siena where for Unrelated. He likes to walk through Rome and was happy to find a pizzeria he knew when he went for a walk the night before the promo for CP and it was emotional to pass by the Campidoglio for the first time after playing Coriolanus.

>>167 I'll admit to being nannyish - not toward TH - but towards the twitter users that post sightings.

I remember that one user who posted about seeing him post-PGG was bombarded with all sorts of questions about EO, what he was wearing, where she was located, could she get a pic, etc. After an hour, she'd made her account private - and rightly so.1

If I find anything, I'll post a full summary (whatever that means for 140 characters!), but I might not link to the person.

One poster said that he was wearing a 'wedding suit' in the City. I took that to mean morning suit. Another said that she say him near St. Paul's and that he didn't want to take a pic, as it was a private wedding, but that he did have a chat with her and her group.

>>172 I saw a number of obsessive comments to Twitter users who saw him at the theatre, at service station on M1 etc.

I have to say if I did see him I wouldn't tweet it. Twitter has really chipped away at any privacy celebs have now. Some of my acquaintance, whom I otherwise consider relatively moderate, are surprisingly militant about this ("if he didn't mind being photographed he wouldn't take the Tube, he can afford a taxi" etc). I really don't think that being famous means you have signed up for creep shots tracking your every move across London. Long may he continue to be able to use the tube, walk out for a coffee etc without being photographed or tweeted everywhere he goes. I hope the lack of Heathrow tweets means he was able to leave the country unnoticed.

I feel like this might be another reason why he's backed off using twitter himself. Some of his tweets located him and his actions/movements just as much as pics and tweets from other people.

Yeah, people's arguments regarding celebs and their rights to privacy are always a little off: 'if he didn't want to be photographed, he'd just never breathe air outside of his house!!' Okay, reasonable logic there.

And we all know - too well - that taking a taxi doesn't guarantee that he won't be photographed!

I haven't!! I was meant to go Friday, but was too ill (I didn't want to be that person - the one that coughs all the way through a movie!). On Saturday, I went to watch the rugby and was too tipsy (read: drunk on beer and Nyquil) to do a movie justice afterward, and I was also afraid the beer/Nyquil chaser would cause me to shout out inappropriate things during the sex scene.

So, Sunday was meant to be the night, but the boy bailed on me (he got called into an emergency shift), and I didn't go - because 'one for CP, please' translates - in my mind - to 'I'm a Hiddlestoner and I once bought a lock of TH's hair on eBay' and I'm not ready for that.

So, this Friday is the day.

>>180 My boy refused point blank (doesn't like horror movies - and forget all that GDT bleating about it "really" being gothic romance, he knows it was a horror movie with literary pretensions). I bunked off work and sat alone in the IMAX surrounded, slightly oddly, by lone males wearing white socks and heavy metal t shirts - not the demographic I was anticipating. About 20 of us in all. It was glorious, like owning a very, very large tv. It has totally bombed at the box office.

The daily updates on whether or not the man was outside his front door was very unsettling and undoubtedly fed into ("well-intentioned") stalker central aka as the cafe crowd.

(seriously - all you have to do to find the "fans" is to see who is following his neighbourhood tea shop on twitter).

On serious matters: I did see CP last week and eh.. I dunno ... the costumes and sets just gorgeous (I so hope that they are recognised professionally) but almost all of the "scary" moments were spoilt in the trailers AND it was just plain old weird seeing Tom as the sweet ingenue. Jessica was amazing and MIa seemed to be playing two different characters tbh (i rather liked independent typewriter toting Edith more than the other one).

I will probably go to hell for this, but I actually preferred ALLO and even Tom's performance (ahem) in High-Rise, to CP..

ISTL seems to be on a weird PR trajectory of its own at this stage.

>>183 Who knows - but with so many rewrites, delays and personnel changes it will remain, to me, Shit Island until it comes out! I do at this point slightly question his eye for a great script. For example everything I have read about ISTL (episodic series of unexplained vignettes from the life of) suggests that it is not just poor direction that has sunk it. And the plot of CP is not a great surprise. So is SI going to be better? I hope so but I am not taking his word for it.

185 Name: anonymous : 2015-10-26 22:35 ID:FFmbYiBL

>>184 Well, there is also the possibility that he just takes whatever script / film he is offered. I am not sure that he is at that position where he isn't competing with others higher on the Hollywood food chain than himself for the choice parts.

I do think though, that he was trying to extend his range/challenge himself and avoid the typecasting associated with Loki (why oh why didn't they just let him keep his bouncy golden locks in CP?) - kudos to him.

I also do think that in terms of prestige/iconic performances, he would never turn down an opportunity to be in the Bond franchise ... look at the effect on Daniel Craig's profile pre and post Bond.

186 Name: Anon. : 2015-10-27 00:21 ID:/FeiLGjV


Two words - Jupiter Ascending. ER and his buddy Oscar couldn't save that one. Hopefully, K:SI won't be that bad!

By all accounts, BL is going to get an AA nom. She may win it - she and the movie have received nothing but the highest praise. Still, if K:SI is a whole heap of rubbish, her name won't keep it from being a box office/critical flop, I don't think

187 Name: anonymous : 2015-10-27 00:37 ID:FFmbYiBL

Hmm fair enough (I lasted about 10 minutes into the Jupiter film, Eddie or not) but I thought that it was made before ER had the accolates..

anyway, here's hoping that Brie has the confidence and acting chops, together with Tom, to make something out of a seemingly trite script. I saw "Me, Earl and the Dying Girl" too recently and thought that Thomas Mann was terrific, so ... fingers and toes crossed for something not awful to watch.

An interesting tidbit re: ISTL and when TH came aboard.

I watched a video of MA and Dante Spinotti from the Middleburg FF. MA was talking about when he and TH had dinner and MA offered the role to TH. According to MA, it was at some point after War Horse and he offered it to TH on the spot - explaining that he didn't have a green light with money and he wasn't sure when it would be made, but that it would be made. MA said TH agreed to come aboard at that dinner.

I wonder if TH agreed, on a handshake and without looking at a script, because haunted, tragic genius has often = OSCAR in recent history. And because TH sometimes gets so excited that he puts the cart before the horse.

I think actors sometimes think their talents can overcome a dodgy script even though a script is the foundation of a movie.

190 Name: Anon. : 2015-10-27 01:13 ID:X9irYl99


I think TNM is going to be our first 'something not awful to watch.'

I'm looking forward to Bond-light from TH. After that, I'm praying HR gets US distribution.


I could get behind a stage run - as long as the stage door doesn't go the way of Corio. Ugh, the poor man, the poor security team. I would like to think that he'd appreciate a second Olivier more than an Oscar.

I wonder if he's even considering Richard II with James Ivory. Ivory seems keen.

And, fingers crossed that he'll have a role in Kong v. Godzilla! (Breaks sarcasm button.)

191 Name: anonymous : 2015-10-27 01:40 ID:FFmbYiBL

192 Name: anonymous : 2015-10-27 01:43 ID:FFmbYiBL


HR is a very very very niche market and most certainly won't be playing at your average US multiplex (imho) so lets see. Perhaps Netflix or whoever will pick it up instead, though I don't really know how the business works tbh.

I had totally forgotten Richard II - James Ivory is still listing him as being on board, isn't he? I guess that there must be a dozen or so projects floating around in development cough Robert the Bruce cough though I hope that he stays away from too many period pieces.

193 Name: Anon : 2015-10-27 06:52 ID:++CFJS2I

>>189 That tidbit makes a lot of things fall into place. No script, plus TH much less well known at that time (far from being the star of WH), flattered by the attention of someone wanting him for a lead, and the lead having OSCAR written all over it.

He then also had the year of drought (2013) with no projects so he was hardly going to turn down work in 2014 (and we see the result of all that work being released now).

195 Name: Kate : 2015-10-27 10:38 ID:Ls7KWlhE

>>185 '(why oh why didn't they just let him keep his bouncy golden locks in CP?)'

Because it's a gothic romance, and that is iconically about a talk, dark, handsome stranger with a past. Thematically, the 'dark' bit is important. That's why Chastain had a black wig too.

196 Name: Kate : 2015-10-27 10:53 ID:Ls7KWlhE

It's not true to say that he had no projects in 2013. He had Coriolanus, which he was preparing for from at least the summer onwards and opened in early December, and Thor: The Dark World (principle photography happened at the end of 2012, but a lot of Loki's bits in the final film were from re-shoots in 2013). He obvously had promotional duties for Thor fall in the middle of what would have been Coriolanus rehearsal period, so they started rehearsing ealier than usual, then had about a month off for him to promote his film, then went straight back into rehearsal. That accounts for about half of his 2013!

Films can be bubbling under for a long time before coming to fruition - it's also quite likely that he was taking meetings back in 2013 for ISTL and High Rise, since he was involved with those before the financing came together.

I'm willing to bet the first half of this year, when it looked like he wasn't working, was actually filled with meetings about projects that we won't be hearing about until next year.

>>197 Yes, it bombed. And yes, even if he was rehearsing and doing reshoots for Thor 2, he had a quiet 2013. That's why he was available for all that promotional work for OLLA and Thor. A lot of people (not just me) remarked that he would have turned up to the opening of an envelope in 2013, because really not very busy.

200 Name: Kate : 2015-10-27 12:49 ID:Ls7KWlhE


You know, it's not actually normal for actors to have back-to-back filming scheduled all year, every year. They do need some time off - some actual recuperation time, and time off to find their next project. It's the way the business works. A major blockbuster release and a major Shakespearean lead role in a year would be considered plenty of work by most actors.

Most of his Marvel co-stars have had a very similar work rhythm. Those big Marvel films are hard work, most of them take some time off after filming/promoting them.

I mean, he is a bit of a workaholic, like Cumberbatch, but after the stretch of work he had in 2011 and through 2012, he really did need some time off in early 2013. He did the same thing this year - basically took the first 3 months off (apart from meetings I am sure he was taking to line up future projects) to recover from making 3 films back-to-back.

201 Name: Anon : 2015-10-27 14:00 ID:++CFJS2I

>>200 Well you can't have it both ways. Either he was busy in 2013 or he wasn't. Are you Luke Windsor?

More generally I notice that you only ever seem to pop up here to tell us the error of our ways and not otherwise to contribute to the conversation. It might add to the gaiety of nations if you tried not to get so exercised by the remotest suggestion that he may not have been working flat out or that his hair wasn't right or whatever. We are all speculating on here, let's be honest, and you insisting that he is planning new projects or having some much deserved downtime is no more well informed than my original thought (which so sent you off the deep end) that he may have been keen on ISTL because he had been a bit quieter than he'd like.

Wow. So anyone who posts something positive in here is Luke Windsor?!

No. I come for a peek in here every now and again, today in particular because I'm off work sick and looking for a distraction from the lurgy. I comment when I have something to say.

I'm actually a fan, and I tend towards optimism. I happen to genuinely think that Tom makes pretty good choices in his work - at least as good as any of his peers - is extremely attractive, is extremely talented, has huge amounts of charisma and stage presence. I have genuinely enjoyed the vast majority of his work - I loved High Rise, and I loved Crimson Peak. I know I'm not the only one - just because a film isn't unversally critically acclaimed or doesn't make huge amounts of money at the box office doesn't mean it's not a successful film on its own terms. Both of those films have people who will passionately defend them as works of art, as well as people who didn't care for them.

People here seem very keen to overanalyze small things - like, you know, going out to the theatre and dinner with a friend, which god knows I do all the time with no romantic involvment - and to be prophets of doom, proclaiming his looks to be going, his career to be on the slide, etc etc. There's a lot of negativity floating around.

As for discussion of his 2013 - well, people in general don't understand how long films take to get made. He was almost certainly lining up his 2014/15 work in 2013, and he has almost certainly spent some of his 'time off' this year setting up work he'll be doing next year and later. Anyone who has been paying attention to the various rumoured projects he has been linked to over the past couple of years should realise that he has been offered projects that he has turned down (we know from the Sony hack that he turned down a project with Sacha Baron Cohen), and that projects he has been interested in didn't manage to get financed, so the idea that he took ISTL because he was lacking work is faintly ridiculous - especially post-Avengers!

And you know, everyone needs a break eventually. It's not good for actors to spend all their time on sets - they need to decompress at some point!

[Puts on diplomatic hat (don't know how I own one of those as an American!) and waders.]

Kate, most people around here lean toward realism rather than pure optimism; it's one of the reasons I like this part of the TH forest. I don't think it's outright negativity. And, I can safely say that we are all fans of TH (we wouldn't be here otherwise). Everyone on this board - save me, and it's going to happen on Friday! - has been to see CP. So, they've done their part as fans. Some of the board liked it, others not so much. As realist-fans (maybe I just made that a thing?), they've discussed its positives and negatives, and we've been honest about the fact that it's a dud - box office wise. People around here don't tend to be 'hear, speak and see no evil' in our discussions about TH - we point out good and bad, and sometimes we do take the piss out of him - affectionately.

And yes, we certainly do question and analyze (maybe overly so - but that's the life of a message board) his project choices - and the reasons for taking them. Sometimes we criticize his choices - Kong comes to mind. There's plenty to criticize and question about that movie - even if TH has said that the script made him shiver and so on. We've questioned his reasons for taking ISTL, especially in light of the overwhelmingly negative reviews and script problems, but we've never said that he's washed up professionally.

We also talk - sometimes gush - about how georgeous he is. I genuinely can't recall a post talking about how his looks are going. We joke about how he wears the same cowboy boots and jacket, and we talk about how he should bring those blonde curls back (maybe that's just me). Other boards, you've probably been to some, are often on about his hairline, his teeth, his terrible skin, etc. In the short time I've been around these parts, I've not seen one of those 'he's aging so horribly' diatribes that you can find elsewhere.

Did we overanalyze his innocent trip to the theatre with a 'friend?' Yep. Everyone did. We did our jobs as realist-fans (it's now a thing).

It's possible to respect his work without liking everything. And if they want to spend the next 4 weeks talking about something they are free to do so.

And, really, if you think this to be such a horrible place, go elsewhere, start another thread, what the hell is this habit of having to post everywhere on the internet!

I saw this when I first entered the TH fandom; I actually found my way in via Classics - long, strange, but true story. Loki, who cares about Loki. Dude's got a Double First in Classics - mamma like.

He may have mis-translated the word annona on the Corio. comm, but he is killing it here!! To my ear, some British Classicists have a touch of Henninian pronunciation to their Greek, which doesn't really exist in the US. So, sometimes the Greek sounds a little off, but TH's pronunciation is goooood.

I get the impression that he was one of those students who easily translated Thucydides. It makes hate him and want to remove his clothes with my teeth.

>>204 The optimism I can cope with - and by and large I think we are a pretty positive lot. We are all here to talk about the great man after all, and why woul we do that if we held him in such scant regard? I don't recall anyone on here talking about his hair loss or saying his career is on the skids.

What I do take exception to is your (or anyone's) inability to appreciate that this is a place where people are allowed to express opinions, including those that don't accord with your own. You seem to want to show that a contrary opinion to your own is wrong (or "faintly ridiculous" as you so rudely and patronisingly put it) . When someone dares to continue to hold their original view you come back again (and again and again) to try and bludgeon them into submission, which is a bit rich when you accuse us of overanalysing things. I do recall that you tied yourself in knots trying to prove beyond reasonable doubt that a tweet from Josie Rourke about TH in London was consistent with a tweet from a fan who claimed to have seen him in Toronto later the same day, and refusing to take "I disagree" for an answer on that occasion either. I come here to get the gossip, including about all the stuff you claim to find so beneath you, to have a gossip with a bunch of people I have come to know pretty well, and to make (on occasion) flippant, off the cuff and maybe slightly snarky remarks. Other people come here to post links or to get infos or whatever they want. What I don't come here for is to be told I or the views I express are wrong/stupid/ridiculous and repeatedly treated to lectures about how you must be right because you know so much more you know about the ins and outs of the film industry than anyone else. If you really are all about spreading positivity on the interwebs then how about starting here instead of jumping repeatedly down the throat of anyone you disagree with?

Here's a random thought - what happened with that UNICEF trip? I haven't heard a peep about it since those pics were located then pulled from that photographer's website.

212 Name: anonymous : 2015-10-28 23:33 ID:FFmbYiBL


It sounded like he went to S Sudan in March and then for whatever reason (undoubtedly to do with the geopolitical situation of the time), it was decided not to publicise the trip.

The photographer posted some pics which were only found out about by Torrilla (ie: not actually officially released by anyone, including UNICEF). Their prompt disappearance seemed to indicate that UNICEF didn't want the trip to be publicised.

I thought that it was a bit misleading for some to suggest that the trip was a way for Tom to publicise his films (since the story came out in September).

I do think though, that it is now too far along the line for anything generated from the trip to be useful to UNICEF.

Having said that, it is amusing to sit on the sidelines and watch people suddenly concerned about the plight of the South Sudanese (though wonderful if it is actually enlightening them about this very poor country).

>>213 Well, I guess it depends on where Shit Island is located. It's vaguely Pacific in other films, not? South East Asia is as good as any, I guess. The helicopters suggest it is set in the 1970s. Maybe TH will have a 70s porn-stash. Maybe they'll capture KK AND re-write history by winning the Vietnam War. TH can do it all!

The mention of 1970s Detroit makes me wonder about accents. We know TH can do a southern drawl just fine. But what if he's required to do a run-of-the-mill American accent. He did fine in MiP, but he has like 10 lines of dialogue in that film.

Ooops, pushed the button too soon.

Maybe Hawaii is meant to be generic tropical/green/exotic island, while Vietnam is meant to be remote, lush jungle.

Hawaii has the look of an exotic, tropical place, but doesn't really have proper jungles like Vietnam does.

I hope he's buying bag-loads of the most gloriously garish Hawaiian shirts he can get his hands on, for all kin and kith. With the winter coming up, London needs as much mismatched pineapple prints as it can get.

222 Name: Anon : 2015-10-30 07:09 ID:++CFJS2I

Just responding generally to everything!

1) I find the need to be in Hawaii very odd full stop because Vietnam is well set up to film the military base/generic tropical stuff as well as all the jungly things. There is a former US air base at Danang which is apparently used for every Vietnam war movie ever (saw it when I visited).

2) I had heard Cambodia, I think from an interview with TH himself at the Baftas, which makes more sense because of jungle plus amazing temples. Visions of TH shirtless in the Tomb Raider temple with a Bowie knife between his teeth [fans self].

3) if he buys a Hawaiian shirt it will surely be blue.

4) bananas?

5) in England a porn-stache and a porn stash are 2 totally different things. Perhaps he was in Macy's buying a dvd of Emmanuelle to get himself in character?

223 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-10-30 07:38 ID:Heaven

  • Then Australia makes even less sense than Vietnam, in terms of greenery. TH mentioned Cambodia, but I think the place was ruled out. Hawaii and Australia are sure, though in latest news they added Vietnam, thus my puzzlement.
  • It's a silly kid that sent TH a twitter asking him about banana. As for the tweet about Macy, that same poster sent him a kind of rude one telling him Macy was hiring and if he picked up an application.

I think that Australia will be used for the interior sets though if you get out and about Queensland (especially the Daintree and the far north), you are in the tropics, so it could fit in for other locations.

In any case, the cast and crew will be there for the hottest and muggiest time of the year ...

All is good. I do hope that that poor man does manage to see the rest of the country too whilst he is here - Byron Bay is particularly nice (though at times, a bit shark-ridden) and a particular favourite of the Hemsworths.

Gold Coast is a bit of a rowdy place - lots of high rises and sort of infamous for it's drug-running bikie gangs (though they are trying to clamp down on it). I am sure that there is a niche market that will be catering for millionaire film makers and movie stars.

The first time I saw Emmanuelle was my first night in London. I'd arrived with all of my belongings in 3 suitcases. I'd managed Gatwick, the tube and gotten to the B&B I was staying in until my work could arrange for a flat. I was jet-lagged, exhausted. I turned on the tv and Channel 5 was showing Emmanuelle. You've not experienced Emmanuelle until you've watched it jet-lagged, at midnight in a B&B on your first night living in a new country.

>>235 Sorry for the late reply: Friday was movie night, Saturday was rugby in the morning/afternoon and Halloween party in the evening. I'm happy I got an extra hour this morning - that you Eisenhower for your DST scheme! at your own risk.

CP was okay - I didn't love it and I didn't hate it - middle of the road. I was actually surprised by how long it was! I guess I never realized that it was clocking in at about 2hr. The boy, who doesn't know I'm a TH fan (I said I wanted to see a scary movie for Halloween, no more) and is fairly cerebral, said he enjoyed it.

It's a beautiful film, everything's jewel-toned and rich - and I enjoyed the visuals. The plot was thin on the ground and there weren't many layers, so - with the reviews, trailers, TH interviews, etc. - I could see everything coming down the hall (things weren't even coming around corners!!). The boy - who had zero previous knowledge - said he knew the brother and sister were off somehow but thought that they were just killing women for money - he didn't get the incest vibe right away.

I actually enjoyed GDT's borrowing from books, films, genres - something others have complained about. I made a game of it: ballroom scene - Age of Innocence, heart thread - Jane Eyre, Edith as the 'final girl'- every slasher film ever made.

I thought JC gave the best performance; it was over-the-top, but I think that was the point. TH did well. I don't always believe in his voice, but his facial expressions are always on point; I imagine his eyebrows will receive a lifetime achievement Oscar at some point. MW always seems a little flat to me - I thought she was dreadful in M. Bovary and not much better in J. Eyre. She was better in CP, but I thought she and TH showed very little chemistry. I mean, if your going to move into a cold, crumbling mess of a house for a man, you should at least seem head-over-heels for him. As for CH - why was he even in this film?

Here are my overall ratings:

7/10 purses
6/10 scarves
7/10 gates

243 Name: Anon. : 2015-11-01 15:58 ID:X9irYl99

A few - rhetorical - questions and comments about CP:

  1. dying REALLY changes a person's hair. Alive, Thomas Sharpe has longish, curly, stringy hair. Dead, TS has short, smooth perfectly blown-out newsreader hair. Does passing through realms always involve a trip to the hairdressers?
  2. Lucille can't see/hear the other ghosts in the house, but can see her brother as a ghost. Where's the consistency?
  3. I'm going to stop using the phrase 'it's like getting a kiss from your sister' and start using the phrase 'it's like getting a hand job from your sister.'
  4. I hate porridge. It's terrible, and I didn't think anything could make it worse than it is...but being fed poisoned porridge while listening to stories about an abusive father managed to do it.
  5. Did JC blink ONCE in this film?

244 Name: Anon : 2015-11-01 17:01 ID:tB216AlG


1) JC neither blinked nor used an English accent at any point. Great outfits though.

2) Did MW's character know about riding cowgirl from the get go because she is American? Is this taught in schools or something?

3) To me the biggest plot hole was whether TS loved Edith from the start (viz for example standing on stairs looking winsome after driving in the (metaphorical) knife about how crap her writing was). Then lots of scenes of him looking alternately conspiratorial or longing. Not much progression from mammon to Venus - more like veering inconsistently between the two. I wonder if it was the editing.

4) It was weirdly long and yet so little happened until the last 15 minutes. I looked at my watch at one point and wondered how they would get through all the remaining plot.

245 Name: Anon. : 2015-11-01 18:06 ID:X9irYl99


  1. On a scale from Dick van Dyke to Renee Zellweger, what would you give it? Or you can use the purse, scarf, gate scale. I didn't think it was too bad, myself.
  2. Well, I just assumed that she made the connection between the post office AND the Pony Express and took up the position one would use for delivering a letter in ye olde tymes. It was a very postal themed sex scene.
  3. Well, if he loved her from the start, why the heck did he take her home to his crazy sister? I think we are meant to draw our own conclusions about the point when he started to 'develop feelings' for Edith, because one couldn't tell from his facial expression or actions.

4) If I didn't know the general plot, I would have wondered what the first hour was moving towards. It meandered a bit.

246 Name: Anon. : 2015-11-01 18:37 ID:6Lp9KVBX

I should have added that I found it to be a good level of scary. Because I'd wanted to watch a scary movie for Halloween, the boy decided that we should drive about an hour outside of the city to see this at a drive-in theatre. And, it really helped to ramp up the scary factor - certainly more than sitting in a comfy seat inside a building.

It helped to have shadows and sounds (creaks and gravel crunch and the wind) around the car. When Lucille was slashing at Edith through the bars, someone walked past the window on my side and I, irrationally, yelped a little because, you know, it could have been someone with a huge cleaver.

247 Name: Anon : 2015-11-01 18:47 ID:tB216AlG


It was Grace Kelly - to me it sounded like a very posh Anmerican person imitating HM the Queen. RZ I thought did the best ever English accent - totally natural sounding. JC sounded to me a bit forced, like she found it hard work, which was a bit odd as she didn't have that many lines.

As to the moment Sir T found love, well I don't know. If it was at the post office then why pop back to sis for a quickie (save to get caught, which is necessary for the denouement)? Why look so malevolent when Charlie Hunnam shows up unexpectedly? I do get that he is a tortured soul who does the decent thing at the last moment, but even with this in mind, it felt as though there were 2 alternative stories being played out: TS falls in love/lust, takes Edith home with idea of grabbing money but persuading sis that they keep her on (it's the last time, she is ideal, you must trust me); or, TS sees one more cash cow, intends to perform usual trick and then falls for her once he's got her home.

248 Name: Anon. : 2015-11-01 20:56 ID:X9irYl99

Apparently, a southern accent is the 'easiest' for a Brit, especially a Texan drawl. I've read/heard a few actors say this. So I find it interesting that as a native Texan, RZ did a very convincing job with her British accent. I'm sure a linguist...maybe even a cunning one! - could explain the reasons why there's a crossover there.

TH is a cunning linguist in CP, but only an implied one!

249 Name: Anon : 2015-11-01 21:34 ID:tB216AlG

>>248 There is a reason. A lot of linguistic scholars think that the Southern accent is the closest we now can get to the English spoken in England in the 17th century. This theory makes sense given that the first settlement from the old country was in Virginia. (We are venturing into the territory of my college degree now!). I suspect that because of this history, there is still more of a continuum between Southern and modern British accents.

250 Name: Anon : 2015-11-01 21:42 ID:tB216AlG

>>248 And the upper class southern accent also consciously changed more slowly - they wanted to sound English for a long time (more refained dahling!). Hence the divergence, even now when there has been a lot of change over the last 50 years, is much less than it is between British accents and any other Ameican accent.

I wasn't a big fan of the Wolf Hall mini-series - I loved the books, but Damian Lewis and Claire Foy are not favorites of mine. Still, MR saved it, as did Natasha Little.

I saw his Richard II at the Globe in 03 and re-watched it years later after THC came out. MR's Richard II is the equal of BW's in THC...maybe MR pipped him even (open for debate!).

And my all-time grubby favorite: scotch eggs...I bet TH loves them, too (legitimate link).

And, I'm off to get dinner....

283 Name: Anon. : 2015-11-12 22:20 ID:8GLG1MAn


Like TH, he's another one where his voice never completely sells me, but his face/actions do. He's got those RADA-trained eyes and eyebrows - they earn their keep!

I loved the book. Her prose always flows for me - there's a pace to it I very much enjoy, especially her use of the present tense for a good part of the book.


MR isn't Irish, but he did live in the Midwest of America (Wisconsin) for a good amount of his youth, which maybe effected his accent!


No! Give us more! More TH, more MR, more pork pie hats!


I did actually go to the market yesterday and buy four scotch eggs. To my great shame, only one made it to this evening. One - along with a latte - served as 'breakfast.'

I'll starting counting and comparing...I'll get back to you!

Not really, but I bet someone is willing (psychotic enough) to do a count.

Now this is a controversy, isn't it. Because aren't there some people who swear that he used to shave his chest and underarms? They point to his bare chest in Unrelated as proof that he shaved/waxed the pecs. And they - madly, I think - say that he doesn't have underarm hair in the Corio. shower scene - you know, the one where he has strange body paint on and it's incredibly poorly lit, yeah, that one.

Maybe they gave him a chest-mirkin (is there such a thing) for TNM, so that he'd look more macho!

286 Name: Anon : 2015-11-12 22:41 ID:tB216AlG

>>285 I was on the front row for Coriolanus and he definitely had armpit hair and rather uneven chest hair (cf the poster pic). I can't imagine manscaping an uneven shape. Men do get hairier as they get older so I am not that surprised he went from zero to some over a few years. A quick research Google (yeah, I know) suggests the hair quotient in OLLA was about the same as TNM so maybe it is just the light in this pic.

I know some one who was at eton who had curly hair and his nickname was merkin. I do wonder occasionally if they called TH this.

287 Name: Anon. : 2015-11-13 00:57 ID:8GLG1MAn


Yeah, but try to have that conversation/discussion with some in this 'fandom.' He shaved his chest hair and armpits - end of, full stop; they'll accept nothing else.

I think he hit puberty at about the age of 28 - no lies. So, of course he didn't have in Unrelated or SS (another one they cite) the tiny bit of hair he has now.

Nothing like a public school for nicknames - they come in only two flavors: crueler and cruelest. Merkin is especially bad, though.

I'd pay good money to know TH's school boy nickname. He does have some...tendencies that would lend themselves to a bitting nickname.

Here's a preview of the ISTL soundtrack

A few on twitter have already handed TH his Grammy award - I'm fairly certain that it doesn't work that way, but I'm not going to burst their bubble.

Am I the only one who thinks it's strange that there's no version of ISTL on the ISTL soundtrack?

I ran away to the bathroom to check twitter...what is my life!

And there's nothing. I guess there may be a pic or more tweets in the morning. Maybe it's his sister...that old chestnut.

Anyway, I now have to go back out to a conference room full of pediatricians that only know how to interact with children. Ugh.

294 Name: anonsy : 2015-11-15 01:03 ID:D5Aqosgp

Could it maybe have been Brie Larson? If the Twitter girl saw from a distance and was expecting to see EO with Tom, she might have assumed it was her.

295 Name: Anon : 2015-11-15 08:14 ID:tB216AlG

>>293>>294 Nothing this morning. Except a vitriolic comment from our best friend and defender of TH's chastity, calling her a liar unless she can produce a pic. This doubtless means that the girl who sighted them will refuse to comment further or will make her Twitter private.

296 Name: Anon : 2015-11-15 09:05 ID:RQNfBWIu

>>295 good. That will prevent her from lying and stupid people assuming that TH is dating EO. they said no - both of therm. It is hard to get it in tiny brain i suppose.

as for liar from twitter - well, she saw them last night? huh, really? and tweeted it after nearly 40 hours when shehardly could hold the exitement? she is attention seeker thats all.

Well if you're not interested in gossip may I suggest you stop lurking here, instead of using what Anon. wrote to locate and then harass innocent Twitter users and/ or popping up here spewing semi-literate vitriol every time EO is mentioned.

>>294 We will never know because the unfortunate original tweeter has now deleted her post. She has tweeted about the Avengers though, so she probably knew the difference between BL and EO. I'm not sure I can bear to open this grisly can of worms again, but they were seen together in late July, then in September and now in mid November. If I were boning TH I would want to see him more frequently than that, especially if I weren't busy with a project. Maybe they're (shock horror) just good mates - or SECRET LOVE but also LOW SEX DRIVE?

304 Name: Anon : 2015-11-15 09:54 ID:RQNfBWIu

Seen in september and now in november. lol. prooves? all just lies and gossips. dont worry EO isnt fucking with Tom. SHE said it. is it so hard to believe what SHE said and he AGREED.

and the author of tweeter doesnt necessary can recognize this two, they look alike too much

305 Name: Anon : 2015-11-15 09:56 ID:RQNfBWIu

Not to mention that September thing comes from Toby that you laugh at. They aren't together, so stop gossiping about Tom that way. Do you realize you accuse him being a liar?

306 Name: Anon : 2015-11-15 10:00 ID:tB216AlG

307 Name: Anon : 2015-11-15 10:07 ID:tB216AlG

>>305 No, I think you'll find that they were seen together (in the sense of being in the same place at the same time) at TIFF by about 1,000 journalists!

308 Name: Anon : 2015-11-15 10:11 ID:RQNfBWIu

Well surprise but at Tiff they were presenting the movie. They were kinda expected to see each other in official parts of that. We all know what happened there. That Tom couldn't care less a out her and she ( I know it's hard to get it, but try) denied their dating rumors. And he (it's even harder) agreed with her. It is official. Get over it and stop gossiping. Or do you think.k Tom being a liar?

309 Name: Anon : 2015-11-15 10:12 ID:RQNfBWIu

And btw they weren't seen together apart from official stuff by ANYONE.

310 Name: Anon : 2015-11-15 10:18 ID:tB216AlG

I will give this one final try before I ignore you forever more. Please read the post at >>303 - I said I thought it unlikely that they were dating because the most we could say was that they had been seen together 3 times over 5 months and if I were dating TH I would want to see him more frequently than that. The bit in capitals was a joke which you may have problems with because English is not your first language. So no I am not saying the dating rumours are true. Please, please try to read what is said before the red mist descends and you start typing madly.

311 Name: Anon : 2015-11-15 10:37 ID:RQNfBWIu

>>310 three times ? Don't tell me you consider that liar from Twitter as truth lol.

I understood what you say. Apparently accusing people in not having English as a first language is a usual thing to say when you don't know what else to say and how else to insult. Surprise. It is. I was born and grew up in London. And btw the joke is made by intonation when it's not a clear joke, so without hearing it it's usually hard to get it. But you are too keen on seeming to be cool.

Good morning?

Yikes. I'm going to need a second cup of coffee.

First - I put my hand up. I caused this, so I apologize. I still have on my twitter app a column dedicated to tweets that feature the words Hiddleston and Olsen. My first mistake was checking it in the middle of a boring social event. My second - and biggest mistake - was posting the tweet here.

I had forgotten about lurkers and their inability to interact nicely on social media.

I'll remember our lurkers and their neuroses in the future.

315 Name: Anon. : 2015-11-15 14:16 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>294 >>303

She does seem in the know about things Marvel and thus would recognize EO from her Avengers role. Especially since EO and BL look significantly different.

But who knows? During my first week in the TH fandom, I mistook JJ Feild for TH and thought TH was married to Neve Campbell for a good month or so!

316 Name: Anon. : 2015-11-15 14:27 ID:8GLG1MAn

As for TH and EO. The sighting could be real. Hawaii seems like a very EO-type of destination for a mid-November getaway - I mean it's almost like 60F in LA now, brrrrrr. And five hours in first class - that's nothing.

They could be hanging out as just friends or friends with benefits, or even FBs - but they are - as they themselves said and others on this board agree - probably not 'dating' in the conventional sense.

317 Name: Anon. : 2015-11-15 14:34 ID:8GLG1MAn

As for Americans and British - both of which mix nicely on this board - I certainly don't let the opinions or the grammar of one person dictate my perceptions of either country in The Special Relationship.

I know that not all Britons think that Americans don't care.

And I know that the poor language skills and fanatical views of one Briton are not a blanket condemnation of 1) the British education system or 2) the mental well-being of the British nation.

318 Name: Anon. : 2015-11-15 14:38 ID:8GLG1MAn

I should add...

That it would really strengthen The Special Relationship if TH were to date and marry an American lass.

It can be me - I'll take that hit for the team. But it can also be one of the other 70 odd million American gals of marriageable age...even EO.

319 Name: Anon. : 2015-11-15 14:43 ID:8GLG1MAn

Finally, as a bit a levity:

Last night, when my boy angrily asked what was so urgent as I was typing furiously on my phone, I said, 'A friend is having relationship problems.'

I don't think it was a lie.

320 Name: Anon : 2015-11-15 15:02 ID:RQNfBWIu

Well Sorry ladies but Charlie Gray who interviewed Tom said very clearly - Tom is sinhle, he doesn't have a lady by his side. And he was one of the last interviewers. So give up, gossip lovers.

I asked a person who knows everything that is going on in Hawaii and he told me there was no news about Olsen arriving - he would know. So again, your Twitter thing was a LIE. Get over it.

And don't worry, Tom won't marry an Ameican. You will be able to check it very soon.

321 Name: qaz : 2015-11-15 15:34 ID:tY18OJ3i

He will marry a Lithuanian!! I.e. ME! Wahhahahahaa

Sorry for the outburst. I will go take those reality pills now.

Actually, I feel like I'm almost off the TH train now and it's almost sad. Anyway, I still like him as an actor, I'm waiting for High-Rise and hope they will screen it in LT.

Although if he's actually with EO that would be epic, lol.

>>317 Anon., I hope you don't think I was calling someone out or making fun of them for being uneducated, having poor language skills etc. I would never do that.

When Lex first showed up round here I took a peek at her Twitter and saw that she said she lived and worked in Tblisi - that, and the way she wrote English, led me to conclude that she was not a native speaker. I put this forward today as an I hope more charitable explanation for some of the misunderstandings which have led her into several spats on this board. She now tells us she is a native English speaker. I don't believe implicitly everything I am told by strangers on the Internet, especially strangers who kick around under so many aliases. I am afraid I retain my own view about this, but I apologise if my disbelieving comment at >>312 came across as unnecessarily mean.

I could get behind a TH-Qaz Anglo-Lithuanian pairing. It's a NATO country, so it's fine with me. Up the Lithuanians!!

I personally think he should marry Katy Perry or Rooney Mara - because then any children would essentially be TH clones...freakish, little TH clones.

324 Name: Anon. : 2015-11-15 16:52 ID:8GLG1MAn


Oh, you weren't - I was calling her out, specifically for her crazy posts, not her English skills.

Personally, I have my doubts about her claim to being born and raised in an English speaking country. Her grammar mistakes suggest that English is her second language. But I will say that her English is very good if it is a second language.

I post on an Italian film board. My Italian - spoken and written - is crap. I'm sure my posts sometime seem like they've been written by a monkey. They're especially bad when I post quickly and don't take the time to think about grammar and look up spellings.

I think Lex does the same thing. She gets overly excited about a topic and her language comes in second to her emotions. She needs to tone down the crazy, not improve her language skills.

And, I've always been a 'supporter' of Lex. She pops in to call EO a slut, call us stupid and suggest that TH will soon declare his love for some unknown woman (usually she implies it's her), and then she goes back to lurker mode. It's a fairly consistent and relatively harmless MO, and, in my opinion, what boards like this are for.

325 Name: Anon. : 2015-11-15 16:58 ID:8GLG1MAn

In proper TH news...yes, that still exists.

From twitter, so barking border collie and all that, but I think it has been confirmed that they are going to Vietnam, so this cave as a shooting location doesn't seem too out of the realm of possibility.

>>324 As to our resident lurker under the bridge: I don't really care if she comes here occasionally, calls us all loopy fan girls, EO a whore, and tells us in thinly veiled terms that she will be Mrs Thomas W Hiddleston before too long. We're all here on an anonymous fan board, and it goes with the turf. I do object to her vacuuming up things she finds here and then hunting down innocent Twitter users to shower them with vitriol because they innocently and totally legitimately posted what they thought they saw. That's way over the line. Still, there will be a lot for the best man to read out during his speech when she marries TH!

Agreed. Which is why I hold my hand up for mentioning the tweet. As they say, mustn't feed the trolls. I failed in that respect.

Do you think we'll get invites? I love a good, old-fashioned British wedding. I've already got my hat picked out.


Yes!!!! HBC - whose initials perfectly and appropriately also stand for Head Bitch in Charge - could both match his zany Britishness and also put him in his place when needed.


He would make a fine second husband. He seems the sort that needs a woman who has been in long term relationships and dealt with those universal male tendencies. A novice might get fed up and leave him!

331 Name: Anon : 2015-11-15 18:45 ID:tB216AlG

>>330 I bet he'd be a right handful. He is 35 and hasn't been in a long term acknowledged relationship since whenever he was with Sursannah Fielding (was it 2011?). Plus he is showing signs of old-git-dom such as retaining The Boots and wearing the same shirt every other day. And I guess that his house is a total man cave - he's said in interviews that his study is a tip and that his mum does his laundry!!! Imagine a woman coming in with Diptyque candles, telling him to change his sheets weekly and throwing away the dirty white converse shoes. He'd totally freak out.

332 Name: Anon. : 2015-11-15 19:24 ID:8GLG1MAn


Yes, to all. But I also think his time at boarding school would make him somewhat malleable, especially for a HBC-type.

If matron tells you to do something, you do it! Especially if matron has a ruler in her hand...and she knows how to use it.

You will need a ruler. What else would a brave woman need to take on TH...and his fans? Rhinoceros skin, being hard of hearing would help (fans and TH), a rock solid love for Willy Shake, unending patience and tolerance (fans and TH), boot maintenance kit?

Here's the thing about those DM pics and video: I think AO and Bob Saget play it RIGHT.

Sure, she acts a bit of a tit, but they get to the car quickly, she doesn't strike up a convo with a gate, he smiles at the paps - and then once they're in the car, it's all smiles and laughter.

Yes, TH and EO need to take lessons from AO and Bob Saget - I repeat, Bob Saget - on PR and pap interaction.

Thanks, Anon.

I'm thankful that Turkey (oh, the Thanksgiving irony. See! Americans DO understand irony!) and Russia haven't started WWIII - yay!

I'm not thankful that my travel/Thanksgiving plans were scuppered by Turkey and Russia pretending to start WWIII - boo!!

I'm leaving the office just now (I'm sharing a train carriage with a group of women headed to camp out for Black Friday sales - they have folding chairs and sleeping bags and are cackling like crazy hens). Where I should be is on a couch in an ensemble that features an elastic waistband, with a turkey leg in one fist and a pint glass of wine (I'm a classy lady) in the other. Either dressing or mashed potatoes should be flecked in my hair, and my mother should be trying to shove homemade rum balls into my mouth.

I do have a TH 'treat' but I'll need to get home to post it.

Hope everyone else is close to friends, family, good food and football (American)! Happy Thanksgiving.

Anon. here (now with wine and cookies - just like the Pilgrims ate).

So, before I left for work this morning, I saw a tweet from a guy who works at Radio 2 telling TH to check out a country music program. Turns out it featured a song from the ISTL soundtrack: Why Don't You Love Me. Or as I call it, The TH and EO Post Pap Night Question Song.

It starts about the 49:40 mark in the show.

Interestingly, they apparently recorded the soundtrack using equipment available during HW's lifetime.

I think he sounds sufficiently 'country.' He's twangy, for sure.

I so wish the British celebrated Thanksgiving. Back in the day at Cambridge I had a lot of American students and I ate several turkey dinners over the years. Very happy memories - if you want to fall in love with all that is good about America, a Thanksgiving dinner is the place to start.

My dear Texan friend showed me how to top sweet potato mash with melted marshmallow. Sounds disgusting (to English ears), tastes like mortal sin.

I'm not a sweet potato sort of girl, but I can happily co-sign the American tradition of happily including marshmallows with most desserts. And pecan pie is proof that God exists, and he loves pie.

Speaking of 'evolved,' this tweet says TH spent Thanksgiving at le cinema. If true, this raises some questions:

  1. Did no one want to take him home for the holiday? Is he that annoying?
  2. Does EO like her popcorn with or without butter?
  3. Are TH and EO fans of Alanis Morissette's song "You Oughta Know?"
  4. Who goes to the cinema on Thanksgiving when in the States - British or not? Ain't no turkey at the movies...unless you count Crimson Peak.
  5. Oooooh, did he go to watch CP five times in order to boost the box office?

The leather jacket is (surprise!!) not a new purchase. It dates from at least 2013, if not earlier. After a month or two of Newclothesnewclothes he is back to doing what he does best, ie ferreting through his wardrobe to put together a whole series of identical outfits:

Maybe he thought it would've protected him if there had been a fiery crash on the gokart track?

Interesting. Who knows?!? It seems an easy thing to search for stuff on twitter or IG, however, enough accounts are set to private that you only get a sniff of possible sightings from responses and not directly from the sources.

I think that HI might be a place they could actually go 'undercover' and get away with it. We've only had a few pics of him since he got to HI, and only one was from a fan (the sneaky pic of him in shorts - and even that one took a month to surface). Everything else has been from people connected to the movie. And the number of non-pic sightings of him have been few.

So, if she were to show up, maybe it wouldn't make the airwaves.

>>411 Interesting theory!

That said the fact that it's being filmed there seems to be relatively big news, and TH is coming off a lot of recent publicity in the press. Plus his fans are on social media a lot and are by and large interested in his relationship status. I would expect more pics if all these sightings were genuine. I'm not saying she wasn't there at all but if they are "homemaking in Hawaii" (I have sold the movie rights to this title btw) I would expect something by now.

It also seems odd if she was cosy with him out there given the Star Mag timing, which I read as coming from her team (the Dlisted guy certainly thought so).

Unless - CRAZY CONSPIRACY THEORY TRIGGER WARNING - she went out there a few weeks ago and that's when they actually split up.

>>416 I'm drinking a concoction of whizzed up lettuce, spinach, pear and lemon juice, so my brain isn't functioning correctly, but I like your crazy conspiracy theory!

She went out there in order to ask him to be her +1 to her sister's wedding. She innocently mentioned that there would be a cigarette theme to the nuptials. TH pictured EO catching a bouquet made completely out of Marlboro 100s, and said a quick no...but probably not before having a quick quickie... and ended their love affair.

We may actually get more pics/sightings soon. HI is the number one holiday/winter vacation spot for US celebs - and they start to head out there during Dec/Jan. With more paps and locals being 'celeb aware' we may just get a few TH, EO, TH and EO sightings. (I hardly ever use an Oxford comma, but I thought it was needed there.)

Looking at those two, and knowing what I know about them (he's French and in his 40s, she's a former child star in her late 20s), I would've thought that cigarettes would be the only thing they did have in common, so why not make it a theme for their wedding.

Tweets abuse TH for shagging EO against his kitchen door and then having some kind of row in his garden. Very similar to a previous series of tweets when he was allegedly having it away with JA. I would take all of that with one ginormous pinch of salt except for a single solitary piece of local knowledge which I hereby bestow. There is a 1 bed lower ground and ground floor flat in that complex, with the same number as TH's house. It's a rental. I did wonder whether its current occupant is a light sleeper who does not appreciate being disturbed!

Wouldn't it be hilarious if real-life Tom was into romantic vanilla sex and not at all the wild kink monster the internet makes him out to be?

>>430 Which category does kitchen door sex fall into?

432 Name: Anon. : 2015-11-30 23:42 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>427 Well, in a way, she did (on a pap video). Maybe that's why they did the pap stroll. Now she can say she's performed in the West End! When she said it, did she wink (a secret signal to her British luver!)?

>>428 I've seen a few tweets about TH (all minus pics) - the Macy's bags one, a burger joint, a few malls, one girl who had him come into her place of work - a restaurant from what I could figure. Finally, there was one other EO one beside for the Marvel fan. It was not one of those mentioned in anon1's post (from what I can tell). It was from the Monday after the first one. TH wasn't mentioned, only she was.

I should add that Facebook is another place they may be showing up but not filtering out. Apparently, after date night in July, a few people came out on twitter saying that TH and EO had been all over the Facebook accounts of Shreveport locals during Nov/Dec of 2014. Seems they showed up together at every cafe in the town and people did take pics, but they stayed on Facebook and didn't make it to twitter or IG.

>>429 FEEECCCKKKK. Up against a door!! TH, you go, boy!! However, kitchen door still resides firmly in the city limits of Vanilla Town.

I once got frisky against the remains of the Claudian aqueduct in the Italian countryside. Now, that's leaving Vanilla Town for Kinkyburgh.

>>429 Those tweets are strangely specific. 'Specific' very often rings my legit bells. I'm naive like that.

This is so dirty and juicy.

Anon, using your insider knowledge, does the rental have a view into TH's garden (where the EO smoking and consoling took place - allegedly)?

436 Name: anonsy : 2015-11-30 23:55 ID:dMgiVjdP

>>431 Depends on whether or not he knew the neighbors were watching. (Of course that's assuming the tweets were true, which I doubt.)

437 Name: Anon : 2015-11-30 23:59 ID:tB216AlG

>>432 The CB person implied there was a lot more than that - seen holding hands etc. Oh it is all such fun speculating. They know how to keep us guessing. Who but EO could release a "she dumped him" leak and STILL have us playing he guessing game?

>>434 I had a look and it was indeed. A mix of stalky fangirl (pretends to live in London, follows a load of stuff he follows), plus the odd death threat to EO and accusing the French fan of being a hooker.

438 Name: Anon : 2015-12-01 00:07 ID:tB216AlG

>>435 I don't know where it is in relation to his house or garden. But as I said it has the same number so presumably close. On a summer's evening with the windows open, in a small gated complex off the road, I bet you would hear quite easily. Also, if it is a basement flat with the same number it is probably a conversion. Those usually don't have great soundproofing.

I too thought it was oddly specific. Sounds like a pissed off neighbour who thinks he is a bit of a knob. And 2 mins! Ouchie!!

439 Name: anonsy : 2015-12-01 00:11 ID:dMgiVjdP

>>438 Maybe it was Jane.

440 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-01 00:16 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>430 I've found that a man tends to lift to the level of the woman he's with. If he's naturally vanilla but is with a woman who willing to get a little kinky, he'll happily oblige. So, if she - allegedly - wanted it up against a door, door it is.

But I don't think TH is naturally inclined toward kink - despite all the tumblr fantasy that floats around. And I don't think EO is at a kitchen door level either. Both seem very much bedroom, bed, low light sorts - which is perfectly fine. It all gets the job done.

441 Name: Anon : 2015-12-01 00:16 ID:tB216AlG

>>439 There was a very similar series of tweets about him
having it away with JA a couple of years ago (different Twitter acct). That tweeter directly tweeted JA saying TH was using her. Though I do love the idea that she rents a flat in his basement and surfaces like Banquo whenever he bring a someone home. She and EO could share the odd cig...

442 Name: Anon : 2015-12-01 00:21 ID:tB216AlG

>>440 Oddly enough my friend who went to Nuffield reported (on the basis of no evidence at all, natch) the very same impression. She remarked that he probably thought 2 seconds of cunnilingus was the dirtiest. Thing. Ever. Also that if you whispered "Shakespeare" in his ear at any point he would immediately orgasm. And then apologise a lot.

443 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-01 00:24 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>438 I'm surprised some wealthy fan hasn't tried to let it. There must be some serious vetting that goes into keeping the loons out.

'...bit of a knob' and '2 mins.' - I see what you did there, Anon, I see.

Now two minutes - there's where I start to doubt. The running, the yoga, the desperate - almost intrinsic - need to please - no way is that boy falling in the lower range of the egg timer.

>>439 Jane, you gorgeous girl, come back into our lives! All is forgiven!

444 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-01 00:31 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>442 Remember from CP: he only does implied cunnilingus.

Well, yes, the word 'Shakespeare' would induce spontaneous orgasm. I'm assuming doing a Pacino impression - making him think he was De Niro in Heat - would have the same effect.

445 Name: Anon : 2015-12-01 00:32 ID:tB216AlG

>>443 There we disagree. I think the anxiety to please translates into straight anxiety in bed and hair trigger trouble. I also don't think he actually gets that much. Evidence for this is the constant excitement boners at the age of 34. That I associate with much younger/less experienced men. They've usually learned to control it by that age.

447 Name: anonsy : 2015-12-01 02:18 ID:dMgiVjdP

Not sure what this means if anything, but those kitchen door sex tweets were sent almost three weeks after Purse Gate happened. EO was well out of London by then. The tweets reference the paparazzi incident, which makes the timing kind of strange.

448 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-01 03:02 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>447 The first set (aka door sex tweets) is from August 1st, so maybe a week after date night. That is a while after the fact to be bringing it up for the first time, however, the person who sent them in said that there were others that couldn't be screen captured. Maybe they were earlier?

The second set is from August 14, and EO did show up in LA around this time. But, in this set he's asked where 'the dumb American slut' is, i.d., she hasn't been seen smoking in the garden or having sex against a door lately.

Mind you, having written all this, I give these a 20% chance of being authentic. Could be closer to 15%.

PS EO could win an Oscar (for Kong v. Godzilla, of course) and I'll always think - affectionately - of her as 'the dumb American slut.'

450 Name: Anon : 2015-12-01 10:09 ID:tB216AlG

>>448 Good sleuthing skills. Although would you tweet the guilty party while he is actually on the job? I would have thought that reduces to zero any remote chance he might see them. Anyway, just a bit of fun - I would have consigned to the bin immediately were it not for the existence of the rental.

BTW the flat seems not to have been on the market since 2012. I guess it was less of an issue then. Though the London property market is so rapacious they would probably let it to the highest bidder!

>>449 at least it was only your arms...

Thanks for the laugh guys - your comments are hilarious - and for all the links; I haven't visited the Bicycle site for a long time and would've missed this gem.

To put my two cents in the whole discussion - I'm with Anon here. When I encounter those wild erotic fantasies about TH, it always makes me chuckle a bit, because I myself get a distinct impression that he's not a very sensual person by his nature. Don't get me wrong, I certainly don't see him as a virginal unicorn prince, but when his fans make up those scenarios where he's some kind of a sex-god, and a night with him becomes the best event of their lives ever - yeah, I don't think that's what happens IRL. For some reason I have a feeling that he is a person who connects more to other people on a friendly or an intellectual level.
And there's nothing wrong with that, BTW :)

455 Name: qaz : 2015-12-01 16:00 ID:tY18OJ3i

>>452 Oh snap! Haha, good point, anonsy.

456 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-01 21:10 ID:8GLG1MAn


I would tweet during the deed - knowing that TH might actually stop and look at the tweets! Or, going by your estimation, by the time the tweet reached him, he'd be done and enjoying a little post-coital social media-ing.

It wasn't just my arms....

462 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-01 21:26 ID:8GLG1MAn


The latter. My Italian boyfriend at the time got away scot-free - the bastard. I don't think it was the first time he'd tried such a stunt, though he never admitted it. It wouldn't surprise me if making whoopee on an ancient monument was an Italian right of passage.

Italians - can't make the trains run on time, can convince you to do sexy times against an aqueduct.

464 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-01 21:32 ID:8GLG1MAn


Okay, maybe not two hours, but two minutes? Twenty, or ten - at least - if only because his sexy talk is probably in complete sentences, with multiple subordinate clauses - because he only knows how to talk in subordinate clauses!

466 Name: Anon : 2015-12-01 21:38 ID:tB216AlG

>>464 I could well believe the whole encounter would take more than 20 minutes. Perhaps it is a definitional thing - I don't count the sexy talk in what one might call the Sonny Corleone door time. That part I can well believe might only last 2 mins.

467 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-01 21:42 ID:8GLG1MAn


I genuinely think there was/is a little somethin-somethin going on. There was just so much smoke for there not to be a bit of fire. But relationships have so many different levels that it's hard to tell what the somethin-somethin was.

Given their geographical distance - and his work schedule - a FWB scenario seems a possibility: we're on the same continent, there's a kitchen door close by, we go for it!! But neither needs to stick around if it doesn't fit into a personal schedule - hence her leaving less than a week after date night.

Mind you, if it came out that they were just friends - no benefits - that wouldn't surprise me either.

468 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-01 21:50 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>465 I went to an all girls school, and then I didn't have a serious relationship until I was 20 - and he was 27. So, thankfully, I missed some of the more puppyish years. And I've never seen one lift a table - those British boys!! :)

Ok, I have to actually go watch the trailer. I haven't yet. I am going to skip his twitter tag - it has over 2000 tweets. Quick 'no' to that.

The people who make trailers must make BANK, because on the trailer alone you wouldn't think that this has a 27% rating on RT.

I think we know how a certain segment of the fandom is reacting to the love scene between TH and EO. His neighbor will be surprised to see them in a horizontal position - and with no door in sight.

And this gem. Look at him work those blankets!

That is bizarre, I have to say. I went in late January when the fan fever was said to ha e been well established and I didn't see a thing. I wasn't into him at that time but my friend was, and was well switched on to Internet madness surrounding him, and she would have pointed it out I'd have thought.

Looking back on it I was so bad. I was on the front row right by the shower and I was just ticked off that it was all so extra - this is the Donmar, why are they pandering etc. I didn't realise it was meant to be a great treat. Then in the robe of humility scene I said, probably horribly audibly, "he's wearing A JOCK STRAP under that robe" (which he was). I also failed to realise who had parked his big blue Jag in the almost empty car park near the theatre where I had parked, until much, much later, after I read how he had been forced to drive after people stalked him to the tube. I didn't see him while I was collecting my car, which is probably a good thing as I imagine he would have decked me for the jock strap remark.

So, I made the mistake of checking out his twitter tag (I know, no one to blame but myself, glutton for punishment, especially since he tweeted and that always brings out the worst in people!).

The tweets are even more ri-donk-a-donk than usual. But I'm going to help you compose your own perfect tweet to Mr. H.

Select one from each of the following categories:

Opening Salutation:
3. A buttload of exclamation points (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
4. An emoji featuring heart-eyes

Over the top emotional reaction to a 2 minute (coincidence given the kitchen door tweets?) trailer:

  1. I'm crying so hard!
  2. I'm shaking it's so beautiful
  3. I've watched it 100 times and it's still NOT enough
  4. 14 crying emojis

Certainty of award:

  1. You're going to win an Oscar!
  2. I expect this film and you to be nominated for every award!
  3. Get ready to accept that little gold statue!
  4. Academy Award emoji

TH ego stroke:

  1. You're the best actor EVER!
  2. You are so good in this!
  3. Your accent was perfect, you're so amazing!
  4. OMG your voice makes me cry/shake/orgasm, it's that perfect!

I'm a fan; I wouldn't be here otherwise, but some of these ladies need to keep their damn panties on!

In honour of this fine post I have devised a board specific Tom Hiddleston tweet generator.

Opening salutation:
1) Hello Mr Olsen
2) Hello Mr 2 Minutes
3) we do still love you but sometimes you make us ROFL
4) Heart eyes

Reaction to trailer:
1) Where is the High Rise trailer?
2) We prefer you with a bit more to hang onto
3) The accent is actually pretty good
4) The thing with the baby gave me the feelz. Bastard.

Certainly of Oscar glory:
1) Never gonna happen

TH ego stroke:
1) We're grown women with proper jobs and we're all here. What more do you want?
2) We don't all believe it was only 2 minutes.
3) Really none of us want to stroke your ego.

'We don't all believe it was only 2 minutes.' (Raises hand) I firmly believe it clocks in at a solid ten - as long as you don't think of tennis or Shakespeare or the movie Heat.

Speaking of awards...the BFI awards are on Sunday. Here's the nominee list for best actor.

Thoughts? Chances for ole TH?


I saw Macbeth. It was playing in the Hamptons at a small festival. I like MF as an actor, I like his face even more, but I thought his performance was flat (odd for Macbeth, I know, but it was a little beige, especially when he didn't have beautiful scenery around him).

I saw Legend as well. It had the most limited of limited releases at an art house theatre near me. It came, I saw it, blinked, and it was gone. If Hardy gets it, it will be for playing twins, i.d. doing double duty, and not for his overall performance. He was very over the top with one of the twins - which I'll concede is probably needed with East End gangsters - but it still put me off. And his overly puckered mouth upsets me.

I haven't seen the others. Has anyone on the board seen them?

I doubt TH will attend, he's got a monkey to wrestle into submission. And it might be his visitation weekend with EO (kidding!!).

488 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-03 17:53 ID:8GLG1MAn

There was a candelabra made entirely of willies and a 3 legged coffee table whose legs were willies; also a cup with a willy that became visible as you drank. I was surrounded by Serious German Academic Men (shorts, sandals, beards, biiiig cameras) and I was laughing so hard the tears rolled down my cheeks. They didn't laugh - but as my (now) husband pointed out, what possible inner kind of reaction were the Romans looking for with that coffee table? I wanted to take it away with me so badly!

There is a person I know very well who is in production so that's how I know. Plus this logically if he is somewhere right now (not on set) is London, not Oregon.

I did however see this on tumblr this morning:

The "6 December 8.30am" is when the blogger screen capped the tweet, not least because at the time of writing (9.55 6 December UK) it is not yet 6 December in HI. So when the original tweeter says "last night" he is referring to Friday night not Saturday night.

Go Scarlet Pimpernel Tom! Leap on that plane to Oregon (probably not...!!)

502 Name: Anon : 2015-12-06 10:34 ID:RQNfBWIu

>>501 Yes,thats right. 8-35am ( 6.12) UK time is 8-35pm ( 5.12) in Hawaii, so "last night" is probably 4.12 ( Friday).

Relationships and family are indeed very important to the Avengers: Age of Ultron actress. She's already thinking about having kids with Holbrook—though she's not sure where she'd want to raise them. "My mother would love it if I was in L.A. with kids," she said. "I loved growing up in L.A., but I always think about places I've never been to before, like Oregon."

Still hoping he shows up at the BIFAs (even though it's unlikely). I want to have a closer look at SkullIsland!Tom.

>>497 Lex/Cabbage Anon/ Anon - Do the decent and reasonable thing and use a name different than Anon(.)

We ALL know you by your posts - you're not anonoymous in that respect, so you might as well give yourself a set name that is different from an established board member.

507 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-06 13:58 ID:FoxK2GSK

This is going to be a long one, ladies. I apologize in advance.


Oh, Lex, what a tangled inter-web we weave...

You KNOW someone in production, do you? That's such a coincidence because when I headed over to The Town Bycycle (to see the reaction to the Door Sex Tweets) there was a ridiculously long submission attempting (badly) to debunk all connection between TH and EO.

That poster claimed to know someone in production as well. The poster also had a VERY distinctive grammar pattern. Now, I'm a language girl - that was my area of study and it's part of the job I do now, so I'm sensitive to language and the use of it - and as I was reading that post, I thought to myself, This is familiar. Very familiar.

AND then the poster used the phrase 'yellow pages.' Now to someone born in the US, yellow pages refers to a phone book's business directory. The same in the UK, I think (correct me if I'm wrong, Anon). But the poster used it to refer to tabloids. YOU"VE used it to refer to tabloids - Thread 3, post 156 - even though you were born in London and live in London. Remember, Lex, you were born in London and live there.

(Puts on NATO hat and researcher hat) Since you asked (even if you didn't), I'll tell you who uses the phrase 'yellow pages' or 'yellow magazines' to refer to tabloids: People from Russia and people from the areas that used to belong to Russia. So I would say you weren't born in London, I would say you were born in Russia, or maybe Georgia or Armenia or one of the Stans. Your language use supports that: Russian, Georgian and Armenian, they all have a case system (like Latin, Ancient Greek), and your grammar and syntax tell me that your native language is an inflected one. It is not English.

And 'Lex,' well, that's probably short for Aleksandra (always a popular one in Russia and Georgia and throughout the Caucasus.). Maybe you should use Alex or Aleksandra for your name here.

And as for knowing someone in production - no you don't. I don't need to give evidence for that, it's just common sense.

Language girl, sure, you know things unlike me. I have a good laugh how you hate to admit I am right about THUNGS generally . I wasn't even going to prove that what I say is legit. Time will tell. Like it did about Olsen and Tom.

And I'm sorry to disappoint you but my nickname Lex comes from Latin lex, my name is Maria, if you are interested. Just fyi.

And don't make your self look stupid, Russian and Armenian are indoeuropean languages when Georgian is not. Language girl. Sure, I can see that.

Unfortunatly to you I really do have a friend in production. But you will better tear your ads apart then admit I was right.

You have an excuse for writing that long post on the Town, you did write it. Thanks for clearing that up, even though it was completely obvious.

My excuse would be that it's Sunday.

Sure, Maria, sure. You selected lex, the Latin for 'law' as your handle on a message board. Nope, not buying it. Your name is Aleksandra or Alex or Lex, or even Lassie...but nice try. God loves a try-er.

And now we know that you are Georgian because you've given us a fact about your own language. But, just FYI, while it's not fully Indo-European, it does share many characteristics (because its linguistic predecessor mixed with Indo-European).

514 Name: Anon : 2015-12-06 14:55 ID:tB216AlG

>>507 All of this.

>>105 As Couch pointed out here, we know that Lex, cabbageanon and FakeAnon (as I shall call her) are the same person as all round Twitter and fandom favourite Firenbrenie. She initially insisted she wasn't but she's stopped denying it now. At >>297ff I described firenbrenie's Twitter description as hers and she didn't demur.

And, as I pointed out at >>322, Firenbrenie lives and works in - drumroll please - Tblisi (from her Twitter before she locked it). Which is in Georgia (the one which was formerly part of the USSR). I too spent a lot of my time studying inflected languages and FakeAnon's use of English is entirely consistent with Russian or one of its relatives being her first language - and, I'd venture, with it being the language she speaks first every day. Immersion doesn't eradicate all traces, but it softens the edges. In short, Lex wasn't born and raised in London, and she doesn't live there now. The yellow pages reference bears this out - I didn't pick up on that. Good spot. You are right - it is to any British person the large yellow phone book with adverts for plumbers and such.

The interesting thing is that you don't need a degree in linguistics to work this out; it gives itself away to any native speaker, especially when there is (to put it mildly) a lot of comparative material available. A lot of people have told the tea girls on tumblr they think the crazy letter to Toby came from firenbrenie:

I'll just leave one final thought for our resident troll, courtesy of another Toby (the one in The West Wing): "When even the internet doesn't want a piece of this, you have to ask yourself, how far from the pack have you strayed?"

Don't try my patience and make me link back to all this. We all remember anyway because we didn't come down in the last shower.

Lex/Firenbrenie/FakeAnon - if you want acceptance here then at the very least stop posting under multiple names and stop telling such preposterous Munchausean stories.

I'm thinking about replacing my T usting bag (bought in 2005 and still going strong, but starting to look a little shabby). Some of the stores around me have a few but not the one I want, so I'd need to order on-line. The exchange rate is unfavorable and then I'd need to fly it across an ocean (sorry, planet, sorry, ice shelf!).

So, Anon and anyone else, talk me out of it (totally talk me into it!).

This is more on CP's non-release in China. The author - like Anon - notes all the mentions of ghosts in Chinese literature and cinema. He thinks the sex scene (and incest theme) might have been a real reason CP wasn't released in China.

If it was more for the sex scene, my response would be: FOR THAT? For two seconds of arse, implied cunnilingus, a bit of around-the-world hip. It's not integral - cut it and give the movie a chance in one of the largest box office markets on the planet.

I agree though that they could easily have cut it, and the fraternal handjob shot, out of the movie had they wanted to. However, as demonstrated at ComicCon, the person with the biggest stiffie over the sex scenes was GDT himself, so I imagine he said no.

'Also you NEED a bag nights with TH etc.' I see what you did there - every girl needs a good sized purse to cover her face when out with TH.

I'd prefer you strap a bottle of your gin - or two - rather than a purse. I've got priorities.

Also, Domhnall Gleeson (who was just interviewed on the red carpet), once I'm done with TH, I'll be moving into your fandom, so get ready.

Also, check him out in Frank - he's very good in that as well.

551 Name: Anon : 2015-12-06 21:51 ID:tB216AlG

>>548 It would be a lot closer. The UK bought stuff is I hope made with real sloes not with flavouring. But the magical thing about sloe gin (apart from its ability to make one consent cheerfully to things one might later regret, hence my intended usage of it on TH) is that it is easy and cheap to make yourself and the homemade stuff tastes so infinitely better than anything you could buy. Basically you find a sloe bush (the only hard part of the exercise), pick off a pound or so and take home. Wash, dry and then if feeling anally retentive, prick each sloe with a pin. Put in a jar with a bottle of gin and 6-8 ounces of sugar. Leave in a dark cupboard for a year. Drain off sloes and bottle. Shake occasionally to dissolve sugar and to feel involved in process. Any middle class English boy, incl TH, will have aunts, grannies and probably a mum who makes this stuff. It is as purple as a cardinal's robe and the older it is the better it gets, though leaving it more than a year and 1 day is the challenge.

552 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-06 21:57 ID:aHqG/RuB


Here's my fav of ginger Tom. It's also my favorite of his - many - hairdos. It's so fluffy and natural looking. It also makes him look young. I don't know if it's his natural curls brushed out - and without all the product he usually puts in - or if it's a last remnants of a straightening process with the curls just starting to come back.

Either way - I love it. And he's doing the signature TH pose with his arm brought up to his face. I've always wondered where he picked that up.

Honestly, in general, I don't think most Twitter sightings are real. There are a few Hawaii locals who just happen to keep running into Tom, and posting about it on Twitter every time - and every time they get more Twitter followers! One in particular I think did see him the first time but enjoyed all the attention, so they kept "seeing" him after that. Either that or they're coincidentally showing up in all of the places he's been hanging around - accidentally of course.

But I mean, nobody would make up a story about Tom or exaggerate something just to get Twitter or Instagram or Tumblr followers, right? Just ask Town Bike.

Mind you, if I met TH, I'd probably just stay standing where we'd met and not move in the hopes that he'd circle around again - because two times, same place, that's a date. And then I'd tweet it, and IG it and do a youtube vid.

'And you know what would happen in Dragonfly-Land if he ever came out before he got middle-aged and bald and they didn’t care anymore . . .'

One of my favorites. It took me a google search a few weeks ago to figure out why his fandom was called dragonfly land. My first thought was that it referred to The Dragon School - but that was too left field, so I had to investigate further.

Just imagine if that jacket had been embroidered with something else!

Popped over to CB and nanny war is raging! CP was not a flop! ISTL not released yet so you can't call it a flop! Etc.

Apparently CP is saved by not having been quite such a turkey as Steve Jobs and that starred, y'know, Fassy, so TH has nothing to worry about. Stands to reason. Errrrr.....

575 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-08 21:22 ID:8GLG1MAn


Has the veranda burned down? What's the body count?

CP wasn't a flop critic-wise. It's not like Aloha, in that some critics liked it and audiences were receptive to it.

However, at the box office - totally turkey. It cost a fair amount to make, and the promo budget was NOT small - think about all the places to which the stars and director travelled - along with their entourage and groomers and so on. Print, tv, media adverts - those cost a pretty penny. So, it will probably not make its money back (even with DVD sales). And if it doesn't make its money back - floppy like a disk from the 1980s!

That having been said - nearly every movie that opened in October was a bit of a flop at the box office. I was reading an article about it - the industry was a little shocked as October movies usually do okay.

576 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-08 21:34 ID:8GLG1MAn


I think some people believe that it's almost sacrilege to speak ill of TH and his movies. Don't mention the words flop or failure or poor performance!! God forbid.

Not that the comparison is the best but - Hello, Daniel Day-Lewis and the movie Nine. Hello, Robert DeNiro and Meet the Fockers. Great actors sometimes make bad choices. And sometimes they make crap movies that don't do well critically or at the box office.

CP and ISTL aren't going to make us forget THC, TA or his run in Coriolanus. So let's be honest about their quality.

And, hey, at least it's not The Pirate Fairy. That shizza was bad (confession: I haven't actually seen all of TPF, but listening to 2 minutes was enough.)!

Right, wasn't it?!? What's wrong with me? How can I not see the genius.

TPF is actually what worries me about Kong. Because when he did TPF, he said stuff about it that sounds similar to the stuff he's saying about K:SI: it's a great addition to the myth of Captain Hook, they storyline is so unexpected, it takes the character/story into a completely new place.

Yep, pull the other one - it's got bells on it.

>>576 It is very funny. CP is named one of Forbes' biggest flops, and was only the 15th biggest flop so it is a success! They should go into politics.

I did enjoy CP very much, although alive to its various faults, mostly because the set and TH looked so lush. However Pan's Labyrinth it was not. And for a movie on which, as you say, no marketing expense was spared, it did appallingly.

I haven't seen the Pirate Fairy - I saw a clip of him singing and dancing along and that was enough!

>>581 I think (controversial viewpoint ahead) that he stumbles onto his good projects by accident. It doesn't take a genius to realise that the Henriad for BBC is likely to be ok; or that Ternce Davies directing a Rattigan play will probably work out. Other projects such as Marvel - well, at that stage in your career I imagine you take the chance irrespective of the script or the talent. When faced with a choice of new material, he does not necessarily know how to pick a good script. I was put in mind of his comments on ISTL (with a bit less slush) - not a wonderful,omen as we have heard that it was the script that let that project down.

Re the acronyms: clearly I am not so much an uber fan as an unter fan! In my defence I was bewildered by you putting The Avengers in the same sentence as The Hollow Crown - I love his role in that but I find the film a bit meh, especially compared to the 2 Thor movies.

On a totally non TH note (for once!) can I just say that tonight the hubby is away so I switched on the Apple TV and and it directed me towards Working Girl, which I haven't seen in maybe 20 years. What a great movie. Quite aside from being directed by Mike Nicholls and starring Harrison Ford when he was seriously hot, it features Alec Baldwin, Oliver Platt and Kevin Spacey in bit parts. I just looked it up on IMDb and it is 27 years old. Sheesh.

593 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-09 23:05 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>591 What? A chance to speculate on TH's hair color? Yeah, I'll take it on a Wednesday night!

I think his TNM (yep, another one) hair was highlighted - it's just too blonde. I think it was stripped and re-dyed after ISTL (No. 2) finished shooting. In that pic from his South Sudan trip in Feb. - it's just too blonde and brassy to be natural.

I think some of that was still in effect during PGG (#3) and maybe even during his time at TIFF (that's 4) - at least in the front.

But by the time of the CP (5 - if you're keeping count) promo tour, I think it was fairly au natural.

All of Anon. (AKA Dottie)'s posts now feature added acronyms!

Knitted him a superhero suit; Black Widow, whose superhero quality is "I seduce you with my magical vagina and then break your neck", which I know we could ALL do if we wanted to; and the Jeremy Renner character, a man with a bow and arrow, god help us. When I see him I think of that scene where Indiana Jones watches some bloke do a huge sword waving display and then takes out his gun and shoots him.

Unless Sir Thomas is dressing wayyy to the left, her hand seems a tiny bit off center, so to speak.

Chinese censors, maybe Sir Tom had a charley horse, and his sister was trying to massage it out. Maybe Lucille was suffering from - Anon can attest - a bad case of 'Tea Shoulder' - a stress injury caused by making so many cups of poisoned tea. Her brother was easing the stiffness...with his lips.

1) over the phone - OW!

2) on the same day as his best friend died - double OW! (And if she didn't know her fiancé's best friend had died, does that make it worse or better?!)

3) if the friend's obit was on 31.10.14 then she and TH had been filming maybe a week when she dumped BH. Makes a causal connection unlikely - however according to a commenter on CB they had been "rehearsing" together for some time, ho ho.

4) EO is a bitch queen to rival the jarthy.

5) this saga truly is the gift that keeps on giving.

Yes, they started filming in early Oct., but TH and EO had been together in Nashville (at some point and for some amount of time). Remember RC when he wrote about all the work TH was doing to prepare for the role? He said that he'd seen him (TH) rehearsing lines with his leading lady for six hours straight.


I thought that MA divorced at the end of 2013/start of 2014. I don't remember where I read that. He was married as late as 2012 when he mentioned speaking to his wife about TH.

Arthy was waging war on two fronts during her TH time: smiling at Wimbledon and in the Bora Bora pic, AND favoring and trolling fan girls on twitter. EO couldn't even manage to not hide her face when grabbing a taxi.

Arthy would have pole vaulted into that taxi and sat her ass down on TH's lap - like the goddess she is.

I wonder if EO knew about this article coming out (perhaps the author would have contacted her for a quote or touched base with her reps.)?

Maybe the 'He ended it' and 'I want to focus on my career' and 'he's living it up big time in Hawaii with the hula girls while I'm trying to recover' are meant to garner some sympathy for EO.

Because, damn, she could use some after this article. Even if she didn't know his best friend had died - an engagement should never be ended over the phone. And that's not because Emily Post says so, that's just being a human being.

Don't slip on the verandah and accidentally deliberately get pushed into the bayou. The owner of the verandah is screaming "I told you she broke up with Boyd before the US Weekly article! I told you!" (ie the Perfect Disney Prince doesn't do overlap). This somewhat overlooks the month of 6h rehearsals.


1) debate is raging over whether EO was an utter bitch to dump Boyd on what must have been a bad day, or just "being honest with her feelings" (a phrase only used by women and only in my experience 0.00001 seconds before they do something utterly sow-like. But I digress).

2) quite a few people are saying "I don't get their PR." Me too.

3) quite a few people are saying "it still looks so shady/juicy." Ditto.

4) mad nanny stuff about none of this being anything at all to do with their PR. Ever.

Poor Tom - I don't type those words often. Maybe casualty is too strong, as I don't think - neither do I think you do - he's going to come limping out of this.

However, he's certainly smack in the middle of the mess, especially since the articles I've skimmed mention their (EO and TH) 'relationship' coming hot on the heels of broken engagement. None I've seen outright say that TH was the cause of the breakup or that it was 'an affair' in the true sense of the word.

Whether the 'reason for' or the 'rebound after' - TH is certainly getting some column inches - probably not the type he'd like though.

I bet he's happy to be on a tiny island with lots of jungle right about now.

Though if true, the circumstances of the broken engagement do provide some rationale for leaking - try and manufacture a sense of a decent interval, because otherwise the breakup story is even worse. Over the phone on the day your friend died AND because I've been cheating. I can imagine that she might have wanted to get ahead of that story by controlling the PR.

>>634 BTW the comments on those articles are interesting. I know that anyone who comments on an Internet article is to a degree "invested" in the story (to use that hideous word). But they are perhaps less of the fandom than Celebitchy regulars or (gasp!) us, and without any of the truly exhaustive analysis in which we have engaged, they have concluded: the engagement ended because THEO were shagging on set; they then milked whatever was going on for all it was worth while ISTL looked like it might be a thing; now ISTL is a dead duck, so is the relationship. I would say that if this is the consensus outside the fandom, it has harmed TH's image.

638 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-12 17:26 ID:1L0JcaTy

>>636 It is a reasonable and logical conclusion, and thus the most likely one for those 'less invested' observers.

639 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-12 17:42 ID:1L0JcaTy

Whether THEO started during the engagement or very soon after it ended is unknown, but I think 'the chemistry' between EO and TH certainly played some part in the engagement coming to an end.

But I'm not going to fault EO or TH for that - not that they'd care! We've posted about this before: even if her engagement was rock solid when rehearsing and shooting started - she's only 25, her fiancé is a 1,000 miles away, she's filming emotional scenes with a charming, handsome man who can work a British accent AND a Southern one. Then, because the town's so small and the cast's so small, they're going to cafes together and spas together and everywhere else together. It was almost inevitable under those circumstances that she would start to wobble in her engagement.

TH was coming off Bora Bora with The Arthy. He needed to rebound hard and fast after letting such perfection slip through his fingers.

So, yeah, the timing was bad and they didn't handle their attraction, entanglements, relationship in the best, most straightforward fashion. But - that's life and they're human. We here know he's no Prince Perfect, so this messiness (again, messiness = life) shouldn't come as a surprise.

640 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-12 17:53 ID:1L0JcaTy

>>636 It will be interesting to see how this pans out image wise.

The He's a Prince and Can Do No Wrong group will explain it all away in some fashion or another. They're floating down De Nile and they like it there. So his image won't change with them - they'll still hail Kong as a masterpiece when it hits theatres.

The Realists understand that he's a man and life is complicated and he's not a monster - overlap or no overlap. They'll - I'll - still watch his movies and be interested in him.

But those are the two ends of the fan spectrum. What the in-betweens will do will be most fascinating.

>>641 Haha. I wonder if Tom is going to just keep him around forever regardless of whether or not he does his job well. I think this EO thing has been a minor catastrophe for Tom, and though I'm not a PR expert I feel like something should be done about it. I don't know what, but pretty much anything other than what is currently going on.

643 Name: Anon : 2015-12-12 18:29 ID:tB216AlG

>>640 Watch this space.

I don't personally think it is inevitable or even likely that a relationship would falter in the circumstances you describe. Brie Larson is also young, a long way from her boyfriend, in the arms of the charming Mr H., and on a pretty much closed film set, which I imagine is an intense and bonding experience. Will she kick her fellow to the kerb for TH? I doubt it, unless the relationship already has issues. My own perspective is that the engagement breakup was a sign that things weren't meant to be, sooner or later, and if it wasn't TH it would probably have been somebody else. No blame for that, and it's probably for the best in the long run (if I had married the man I was with at 22....don't go there!).

Where I do give TH a hard stare is what happened after. Most people have a messy relationship from time to time and that's fine. It also is understandable given how the press write about people's private lives that he might wish to control how that story found its way into the public domain. However, where I part company with it is when it starts to look a lot like exploiting the relationship (or exploiting a friendship that people thought was a relationship) in the interests of publicising your movie, until precisely the moment when it becomes clear that that movie is a dog. And the reason I give that a hard stare is purely because it was accompanied by a lot of guff from TH about being principled and straight and not playing games and (per the FT article her wrote recently) about not generating click bait! it seems to me that if you are going to play the game, that's fine, but don't then pretend you're not.

646 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-13 13:41 ID:1L0JcaTy

>>643 True. But BL is - as we've mentioned - seems a lot more grounded, worldly and mature than EO. And I've seen BL's man - he's a musician, dark, scruffy - and drop dead gorgeous. Boyd is pretty much TH (similar color, build, features - just with a smaller forehead). It's like EO wanted to do a straight swap. Switch the one that's not there for the one who looks exactly like the other but is around/new and shiny.

I just can't with the whole publicity mess because I genuinely can't separate the PR and purposefully planned/leaked stuff from the straight up tabloid. Some called it a set up pap walk - but then why did they behave like that? And the majority of articles didn't paint either in a good light, so were they leaked? Which ones? Was that first pic planned/leaked? What is going on!?!

I do think that TH is playing some type of 'game' but he (and Luke) are playing so poorly that it's almost like he isn't playing the game. It reminds me of the time I agreed to join a Saturday football league but only if I could play goalie because then I could stand in goal and smoke and not have to actually run around, play, try. I wasn't playing a game - I was just smoking in goal.

I need a dozen Christmas cookies to wash the muddy taste out of my mouth.

Obviously, it would be a quote - a long one. TH does not know how to self-edit - in so many ways!

It would be philosophical, maybe an entire Loeb's page worth of Marcus Aurelius or Seneca or Heraclitus?

It wouldn't go on his arse, because that's been his money maker of late. Got to keep that canvas blank for the cameras.

650 Name: Anon : 2015-12-13 14:54 ID:tB216AlG

>>646 We've tried to answer so often and always Epic Fail. But I think the May article in US Weekly came from one of them (probably her). Nobody on nw3 or the bicycle could confirm they had seen them together in London before then, and certainly there was no rumour in the press about them as a couple - in other words that info probably came from within. I imagine at that stage it had more to do with managing the messy engagement breakup than anything else. Then the sneaky from behind pic - that originated with the bicycle so I doubt they had anything to do with it.

Then the dreaded Pursegategate. Now I very much doubt that was a staged encounter - as you say, given their reaction it looks unlikely. But I do still think they must have anticipated they were like to be photographed, just not the extent of the feeding frenzy. There are plenty of very fancy restaurants in London where paps don't hang around outside, where mobile phones aren't allowed (so no tweeting to tip off the paps) and where your driver could collect you from a kerbside door. Maybe it was just defiance - we won't let the paps run our lives - but celebs who get a lot of pap attention tend not to tweak the dragon's tail unless they are prepared to take the risk that they might be seen. So I do feel like they were playing games - but mostly a game of chicken. We might be seen, and if we are we'll keep them guessing with our weirdly ambivalent body language. TH lives in London and he is not a complete baby about this (cf ability to hide the Jarthy away after initial attention). I think he knew what the likely outcome of that dinner was.

After that - who knows about the later articles. US Weekly I still think came from the same inside source, but by then they had enough material that they could make stuff up and sound convincing. The rest were just voices in the echo chamber and all seemed to derive from US Weekly. It is quite noticeable though that they didn't confirm or deny the rumours until TIFF. Previously EO had been very keen to deny she was seeing Jeremy Renner. I think she specifically denied that on Gossip Cop. That rather begs the question, if you were ultimately going to deny you were dating TH, why wait until mid September? The only answer I can think of for that is because the gossip served a useful purpose.

But I do wonder what TH is thinking nowadays about all this.

PS speaking of fandom meltdowns, it is an article of faith among the US-based nannies that he must be circumcised, because how could the Perfect Disnwy Prince not be? I have seen numerous hilarious wailings of "But his parents were rich! He must have been done!". So our blind item must state, in the memorable words of Hunter S Thompson, that he has "a throbbing uncircumcised c*ck" (sorry for salty talk - and it's only Monday, folks!!)

No me neither, though my married state precludes me ever trying now!

I think the logic is that although not available on the NHS (since the 1940s, fact fans!), being circumcised is such a dirty horror that if you could possibly afford it you would pay to have it done privately. Most of these comments probably come from 19 year olds who have no notion of how unpopular and uncommon it is in Europe save for religious reasons.

Oooo. I don't know NW3 that well. By the time I was knee deep, she'd deleted her blog posts and flown the coop. Then she came back and it was fairly useless/uninteresting things. Then she went again.

Could she be Kitchen Door Anon? She lives in NW3, but is she close enough to have seen THEO in their natural habitat (cue David Attenborough voice over)?

693 Name: Anon : 2015-12-18 19:57 ID:tB216AlG

>>692 She is a funny one. Started her blog supposedly as an "antidote" to the stories about TH being a cokehead and all around nasty guy. Supposedly she was the nw3anon who previously gave a few items to the bicycle, though the bicycle was never sure if it was the same person.

She started off giving some pretty specific info about when she had seen him at the cafe or running or whatever, and promised some "dishes" on why he had split up with SF - although when that came it was of a level of profundity like "they didn't get on." She started off claiming to be a neighbour who saw him on occasion, but as time went on she said she had met members of his family, "knew" him to chat to at the cafe etc.

Someone on here pointed out that she always seemed to have sighted him after there had been a Twitter sighting, and there was one odd occasion when he was verifiably elsewhere, she got it wrong, and then claimed her account had been hacked! She deleted some stuff after about a month, whether because she knew she was wrong or because it might identify her to him, who knows. After another few months she had a meltdown (unclear why) and deleted the lot. Then came back for a short period when the EO story surfaced. Then someone started tweeting screen caps of her blog to him (!) and she vanished again.

Who knows whether she was a mad fantasist or whether any of it was true. FWIW I did think she lived broadly round there, as she had enough local detail for it to sound right to me (as someone who lived a 5 minute walk from his house for a long time). I very much doubt if they were actual neighbours in the sense of residing in the same or adjoining complexes. You could easily live a 10 minute walk away and see him most days if you made the effort to go and hang around the cafe. She always said that you couldn't see his windows from the road (as proof that she knew his movements because lived reeely close etc). In fact you can see some of the skylights, so anyone who knew where to look could see if a light was on. I felt that some of her info was true but it was what she got as a passerby or hanger around at the cafe, and not because she had ever actually spoken to him. I imagine she also beefed it up with a few Twitter sightings.

694 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-18 21:16 ID:iEL76ISY

>>693 Interessante. However, refuting drug and Mr. Nasty claims in her position seems a useless endeavor. She's 'anon' and - at the very most - a close acquaintance (if she did meet members of his family and was on speaking terms with him). What type of insider info would she have to combat false claims? 'I've never seen him do a line of coke' - well, neither have I. 'I've never seen him kick a kitten' - yep, that's an affirmative from me, too. TH is 100% not a kitten kicker.

But does that change the minds of people who think TH snorts lines of coke WHILE kicking a kitten? Nope.

>>694 I think she has in truth long left such high ideals (cough) behind. The blog has for ages read like a low rent version of the bicycle. She publishes the anons accompanied by her own put-downs. And she talks to her little coterie of more or less malevolent fellow bloggers. It's a bit like Celebitchy, only they have ditched any pretence that there is a verandah over the seething crocodile pit. I haven't seen a piece of actual information worth a damn on there since about March. Even before then it had got pretty sparse, as she had finally tumbled to the fact that if by some remote possibility he read it, he might realise who she was if she said "I saw him today when he was leaving the cafe and I was coming in." Having hooked her followers in with some grain of truth she didn't need to reveal more. Nonetheless it has been amusing to watch the blog die and then be brought back to life. It has been speculated that she has a relative who genuinely is well known in theatre who told her to can it.

At least 2 tumblrs have mentioned that maybe this blonde was the one people mistook for EO from reported sightings. Similar look so if you're not right in front her, it's possible to mistake her.

701 Name: anonsy : 2015-12-20 03:28 ID:D5Aqosgp

Looks like the first pic is from the wrap party too - the Reel Tours Twitter said the wrap party was going to be at that club (plus it's tagged wrap party). And I could totally see someone mistaking that blonde in the second pic for EO, especially as the jumping ghost in the laser tag photo lol.

702 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-20 06:42 ID:iEL76ISY

>>700 >>701 I saw these earlier and thought, yep, this is ' Hawaii EO:' Blonde, petite, small features. But then my analytical, researcher brain kicked in...

I looked at her IMDB page, and she's not in Kong - so she wouldn't have been filming in Hawaii along with TH. But she is in Jessica Jones. I'm not watching it, but every other person on the planet seems to be, and I remember that November was 'Jessica Jones' month at my work; that's all everyone was talking about when it came out on Netflix. A Zimbio search says that the premiere was 11.17 in NYC. She was there. 'EO' was spotted (at least the only 'verifiable' spot) that weekend >>290 .

I guess she could be in Kong and just not on the IMDB and was in HI filming before heading to NYC, but that seems a stretch.

However, now that we've gone so long since an EO sighting (at least one that came to the surface), I'm inclined to think that the original sighting might have been some other blonde. Wasn't he spotted at the theatre with a blonde who wasn't EO? Maybe the fandom has been sniffing around the wrong blonde. If I believed in Christmas miracles, Hawaii EO would be JA with a new cut and color. Whispers: It's all I want this year, Santa.

The only thing is, that THEO in Hawaii sighting tweet was on Nov 13, the reason I remember is because it was the same day as the Paris attacks so it could have very well been the blonde girl in the wrap party photo.

705 Name: Anon : 2015-12-20 07:26 ID:sLyoJCVK

The sighting itself was supposedly the day before, on Nov 12th but not tweeted about until the following day. This was the tweet that one girl deleted because some crazy fan was yelling at her and calling her a liar and what have you.

After seeing that picture of the girl from the wrap party I thought she was EO for a second...

706 Name: Anon : 2015-12-20 08:09 ID:RQNfBWIu

On Nov. 12 TH had night shooting. It was Thursday. They had night shootings on Nov. 11 as well, and on 13th they were making day shooting. He couldn't be seen with EO or anybody else because he was FILMING. Get over the fact that the poster in Twitter indeed lied for having attention and deleted her tweet because she was cought on lies, or was seriously mistaken.

Seriously what's wrong with you all?

How do you know? I have to ask because you seem so sure in your statement.

I have to say I don't know for sure if he's dating anyone or not, wish he was dating me but alas' nah, but whoever is getting that Hiddlestick at the moment...props.

With the exception of the circus with EO (for whatever it was, screamed PR) and the crazy with JArthy he seems to keep what he does with the ladies to himself. I love gossip as much as the next fan, but hey IMO it's just gossip until it's fact.

>>707 Good morning, Whatsinaname. Thanks for posting the wrap party pics. Are you enjoying/did enjoy JJ? I'm considering watching it, but am not a big fan of the lead actress.

>>706 (Waves while slowly backing away) Nice to see you again, Lex. Has TH fallen in love with you yet? Has the engagement announcement been made? I see Georgia (your native country) might get free Visa access to the Schengen zone. So, you might actually get to visit the UK instead of just pretending that you live there and are TH's neighbor. How exciting for you!

727 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-20 13:55 ID:iEL76ISY

>>704 >>705 I should have been more specific - I was referring to the weekend preceding the 17th (the premiere night), i.d., the time frame when EO was seen. If she's not in Kong, i think that there would have been no reason for her to be in HI that week/weekend preceding the JJ premiere. Also, before premieres, the press usually have access to the stars for interviews. I just think it is more likely that she was in NYC in the days before the premiere (when EO was supposedly spotted) rather than in HI mixing with people with whom she's not filming a movie.

She did an earlier movie with the Kong director, so it could be that she's at the wrap party not as a member of the cast, but because she happened to be in HI for vacation (like most of LA's celebs) and got an invite to the wrap party because of her connections to the director.

But I could be wrong, and she could be Hawaii EO. Side note: we have so many EOs: cafe EO, pap EO, Kitchen Door EO (my fav), Hawaii EO. I wonder what the next one will be?

728 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-20 14:03 ID:iEL76ISY

>>714 She doesn't know. Nor does she know what's happening with the production. She likes to pretend she does, but she doesn't. Her 'insider information' is stuff she's taken from the internet (mostly twitter posts) and concocted in her own mind. The made up stuff is based on a reality that doesn't exist but she wants to exist, so TH can't be dating anyone because then he's not available to fall in love with and marry her.

Yep, that's the level we're working with here.

Honestly I really have to admit i'm an idiot. I still try to talk to bitches that dont want to see further then their noses. Its more interesting to live in your Bitch Universe and pretend to be sane - yet gossiping about TH on anon board and creating crazy conspiracy theories then just to accept simple truth. you prefer to make up crazy things about me and beleiveing it and troll and insult me then just to accept that I'm right.

>>726 I really feel sorry for you. Honestly. You are such a sour bitch that it must be hard to exist. I have a friend in Hawaii production and she was extra in last days of shooting, her father worked with production as well. Thats how I know everything.Would you like to see screencaps of our conversations? But hey, you arent interested in truth? are you? All you want is to insult and troll others to show how supperior and sane you are, then actually listening to reality. You are an idiot, I really feel sorry for you.

All i can say in the end is that stop imagining things about me ( like where i come from, where i live and what i do) and stop being a cunt. Ok, you can do first thing, i dount you can stop being that particular human body part.

>>736 I'm never sure what people who complain/worry about his skin are on about. Yeah, he's got lines and some sun damage - he's 34! But otherwise, I think he has lovely skin. I've seen fan photos of him in really unflattering light and with no photoshop, and it's like he has NO PORES - NONE. I'm younger than he is and have a fairly good skin regime, and yet I'm fairly certain Jimmy Hoffa's going to be found in one of my pores someday.

740 Name: Anon : 2015-12-20 16:15 ID:UrQKzwYM

>>739 I think it varies. I have definitely seen some recent pics where he has noticeable pores on his nose. And he gets spots but it tends to coincide with the end of filming (eg not great skin at the Evening Standard awards last year, and in some CP stills you can see he has spots). I always put that down to the makeup, which to judge by the CP behind the scenes stuff was pretty heavy. I have never thought he has bad skin though. Just charmingly normal.

Maybe they needed to have a business brunch to discuss how far they're going to take this ridiculous PR mess. Or maybe Tom was putting his foot down about how her team has been using him in the press. Or maybe they had sex up against the restaurant door and then were hungry afterwards. Or it could always be a classic Twitter troll for attention.

751 Name: anonsy : 2015-12-20 22:56 ID:D5Aqosgp

In all seriousness though they're probably FWB, and that's not something you tell the press.

752 Name: Anon 5595 : 2015-12-20 23:01 ID:sLyoJCVK

Maybe they should stop with the tabloid shenanigans and admit that they are dating/banging/playing naked Monopoly whatever and get it over with. They will continue to get spotted because omgosh Twitter is everywhere, it's a global monster!!! Lol.

>>751 I would take odds on this, too. Which would make sense given their half-assed denial at TIFF. And, I don't blame him. He has needs, and a fellow celeb isn't going to go running to a tabloid about Two Minute Tom (still don't think it's only two minutes!).

The Jarthy was in his life when he said it was nothing to write home about, and for some time after (not just Bora Bora as they were spotted in a bookshop over the winter when he was doing Coriolanus, and leaving true theatre together during the run). Maybe all that weird body language at TIFF was that of someone who is profoundly uncomfortable about having his personal life scrutinised in any way. Makes it all the more odd that he has taken up with someone who obviously has blabbed to the press to a degree.

I don't think either wants to admit to being FWB. It's not a scarlet letter, and probably common with celebs, but also not something you go public with.

And - given the timing AND the recent interview from her ex - if they admit to a real, lovey-dovey relationship, the timing will be questioned - as we've all said around here.

759 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-20 23:31 ID:iEL76ISY


It's hard to determine what's going on because there are so many variables. We have a control - it's his relationship with SF. Open, took her to RCs, posed with her for photos, kissed her, was affectionate towards her. Normal relationship.

But then he got famous and everything changed. So, it's hard to tell what JA was - FB, FWB or real girlfriend. And this THEO thing is just impossible to label because of the hot fuckery surrounding it.

>>726 Good evening, Anon. . I have only made it through 2 episodes - it's really intense and I don't want to become desensitized to the violence - so I'm trying to pace it out. I'll watch another tonight. As for the actress playing JJ, her face was familiar but I never saw any of the popular shows she was in (just checked her IMDB and there's a lot I've missed like Breaking Bad and the Gilmore Girls).

>>742 I love the comment 'viva le trasparenze!!!'

761 Name: anonsy : 2015-12-20 23:36 ID:D5Aqosgp

>>759 I think work is his girlfriend, thus everyone else is "nothing to write home about" and falls somewhere in the FWB/casual category.

762 Name: Anon : 2015-12-20 23:36 ID:tB216AlG

>>758 I can see that it is a FWB (I don't see him wanting to move to LA or let her move in with him in London). I also see why they wouldn't admit it to the press. Telling the press you have a casual shag is like telling your mother if you are an ordinary unfamous person - opens the relationship up to all sorts of unnecessary scrutiny and unhelpful questions.

But if they are caught by the paps they will still look pretty stupid. I was rereading a Guardian interview he did in the autumn and he was going on and on about striving to be authentic. Which is all very well, but... I am not saying he should tell all when asked but why not just say MYOB? Why bait everyone with the ridiculousness that was Pursegategate?

763 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-20 23:37 ID:iEL76ISY

>>757 Oh, they'll explain it away (Luke's probably typing up a script now if they're caught!). They'll hope the fans buy it, and as insurance, TH will quote a Roman philosopher on Facebook.

764 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-20 23:46 ID:iEL76ISY

It will be interesting if anything shows up on Just Jared. As I said during PGG - JJ is just a conduit for PR now. He doesn't do true gossip or unapproved pap photos. It's all very much wink-wink and arranged.

So, will lunch turn into dinner? Will some pap photos show up somewhere? Is so, the question - as it always has been - will be if they are trying to introduce/ manage a real relationship going public or if they are trying to rustle up some momentum for a movie that seems to be DOA.

765 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-20 23:50 ID:iEL76ISY

>>762 Yeah, I think we've determined that he's not really walking the talk he's talking.

But, I would imagine that like most imperfect humans, when asked 'Are you dating?' he feels he can say 'no' and have it not be a lie if they are FWB.

We've said this before - we need someone to ask - Are you banging EO up against kitchen doors?

766 Name: Anon 5595 : 2015-12-20 23:52 ID:sLyoJCVK


Well that tweet of GDT's that he RT'ed recently had my eyes rolling back into my skull and then they started rolling off and down the street. I prefer the ee Cummings version but still the "to be yourself" quote when you are not being honest about yourself esp to the press makes you look unauthentic. It he had just said "no comment" and just continued on living his life it would have been fine.

"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

If he wants people to think he's authentic then maybe he shouldn't lie and play tabloid games, just saying.

767 Name: Anon : 2015-12-20 23:54 ID:tB216AlG

>>764 Depends if the pap photos look staged. If they are caught unawares it could be option 3: FWB and trying unsuccessfully to stay under the radar.

By the way, that Guardian quote: “I have tried with all of my power for there not to be any inauthenticity,” he says. “There is no version of me presented to you that’s been created or is artificial. The people I’ve always respected have an integrity that is unassailable.”

It's tumblr logic. Everything's an ill-conceived PR conspiracy.

774 Name: Anon : 2015-12-21 00:50 ID:tB216AlG

>>772 Olly probably did go home via Seattle. Quicker or cheaper or he had friends in Seattle he wanted to see. He didn't say he was with TH - people just assumed. As for tweeting this as a decoy - everyone on here seems to agree that his PR team would have difficulty organising the proverbial piss up in a brewery, so the idea that they have the wit to do this defies belief!

God here is a weird thing. The person who asked for details about the sighting has deleted their account. Devastated by the news?!!!

Or... It was Luke planting like little Johnny Appleseed...Twitterseed? (tumblr conspiracy theory of the day).

777 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-21 02:42 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>774 They could organize a piss up - but after the fact the spin would start:

'Yes, we were at a brewery, but it wasn't a piss up. People are allowed to be in a brewery without there being a piss up!'

'There was no piss up, only non alcoholic lager was served. It just looked like a piss up.'

'This piss up is nothing to write home about.'

'These aren't the droids you're looking for - wait, that's the wrong fandom.

And finally...'I'm not about the piss or the up or the brewery. I am about the work.'

So .. just to be clear:

He has people he worked on in movies feeding info on his day to day activities to his more over-involved fans, whilst he was working in Hawaii..

Everyone is going crazy because he was spotted out having lunch with his close friend/girlfriend/lover/buddy/fwb/a person from the opposite sex who is single.

stalker central anyone?

779 Name: Anon : 2015-12-21 07:59 ID:tB216AlG

>>777 No they didn't (and anyway they usually attack the OP). By the way I saw an absolute gem on the bicycle from someone who follows their (currently locked) Twitter account and apparently they were saying they were at BIFA and if TH won they were going to accept the award on his behalf.

Wouldn't it be hilarious if he WAS secretly married to JA this whole time? And EO was just a cover?

Sorry, I can't help it - talking about JA just makes me feel like I'm back in the good ol' days.

782 Name: anon1 : 2015-12-21 10:36 ID:PiA4WJQQ

My two cents on THEO:
I think they got together while/after filming ISTL. But something happened around the end of July / August and they either split or took a break: they seemingly spent the whole month of August apart and they were acting quite distant at TIFF, even at the premiere when they did not know yet that ISTL was a flop. When asked about the relationship, they denied it since they were not together anymore. (Sidenote: EO might have held hands with MA to make TH jealous?)
Then I think they got back together (maybe in early October when she was supposedly seen in London after her stay in Paris?), which would explain their lovey-dovey body language at the Nashville premiere and the latest sightings of them together.
This is just speculation on my part.

Just Jared still going with "Halle Berry picks up wrapping paper" and "Gisele carries a hockey stick". I feel sure that with the high quality of these stories as soon as he has a THEO pic he will run with it!

>>778 I wouldn't say this is 'stalker central.' We're gossiping and speculating - no harm, no foul. And no one's going crazy - yet!

>>779 Funny, but also worrying. There are shades of delusion, and that seems to be a turn toward the darker.

>>781 >>783 From your mouths to God's ears. If The JA waltzed back into TH's life...and into his heart, my Christmas would be complete. Although, I feel as if she'd be older and wiser and not bait us so much, which would be a disappointment. Bait us, The JArthy, bait us!

786 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-21 15:04 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>782 I would agree. I think TIFF was their 'weekend with the parents.' You're a couple and you spend your first weekend with a set of parents, and you don't act like a 'normal' couple: you're not as affectionate, touchy-feely and you certainly don't bang because they're in the bedroom next door and you're in your childhood bed. It's all so uncomfortable. You feel very watched and evaluated.

TIFF was their first joint public outing after the shit storm that was pap night. It hadn't gone well and hadn't been well received, they as a couple hadn't been well received, i.e. the are they or aren't they, the timeline regarding her broken engagement. Then they had to go before cameras and media and sell a stinker of a movie. It must have been uncomfortable. And they were wanting to sell the 'We're not a couple' story, so they acted very much like they'd never bumped genitals.

But there definitely was a different feel in October in Nashville, as anon1 said: giggly, touchy-feely. I think their genitals bumped hard that weekend because it's Nashville and no one's really watching, because they'd denied any relationship and probably felt they could go under the radar, etc.

It seems to be a very convenient relationship - FB or FWB - and working for them (humans need relationships) at this point in their lives. And it might become more as it develops. Either way, we get to gossip and speculate - good message board business.

>>784 Gisele carried a hockey stick!! Wow. I have got to read about this!

Yeah, this is what I mean, JJ is very sanitized now. I don't think TH and EO would show up there unless it was pre-planned/approved. JJ will give us Gisele with a hockey stick but won't publish her beach photos with her new chest or her and her sister in burkas sneaking into the plastic surgeon's office.

So if they're in JJ, it's official. Semi-official. It's something!

This is from the official GQKorea IG account. I wonder if he'll get the cover in the GQ UK or US versions. I can't be bothered to search for this. Does anyone know offhand about those covers?

791 Name: Anon : 2015-12-21 18:33 ID:tB216AlG

>>786 Well, they are keeping us guessing at any rate.

We were pretty sure with the body language at TIFF that it was a no, and I can kind of see that period being the "off again" time that anon1 suggested. Then happy times in Nashville! We do know that he seems most content with an on/off relationship as the JArthy kept going under for months then surfacing like Moby Dick (not sure why I am on the Herman Melville metaphors here)(was it the prosecco I was drinking while prepping a pre-Christmas dinner for friends? Surely not!!).

At any rate this one will run for a while longer. Bets anyone? If she shows up in Australia, then I would say we have ourselves a ball game.

Just a random reminder of a couple of other things: no show at either family wedding which puts this squarely in the FWB box to me, especially after probably a year of dating. And the second thing: evidence suggests he doesn't socialise with that many people these days. Has anyone seen a pic of him with a university or non industry friend recently? There was the pic when he went to see Gatiss at the theatre but that is all I can recall. He took his PA to the tennis, after all. I have a PA that I get on well with - but prime seats at Wimbledon? No way. That says to me he has a small circle of acquaintance these days. One reason he may spend time with EO is because he seems now to be very wary about making friends outside the industry.

Awww, look at MW standing on a box - always need added height with TH - and in her slippers!

>>792 Whenever I see photos like that I think about how I'd have to stand on boxes all the time if I was ever in Hollywood movies. Just like Robert Downey Jr., lol.

I saw a tweet that reminded me of something... I remember reading that back when Avengers was filming, Tom and Scarlett Johansson went horseback riding together in California wine country or something like that. I think he was still with Susannah Fielding at the time, so it got me thinking about how he has a history of doing very date-like things with his female friends he's allegedly not dating.

794 Name: qaz : 2015-12-22 08:04 ID:tY18OJ3i

>>793 I've never heard about it, but it's interesting if true. I only remember reading or hearing somewhere about her baking him muffins, or something, at her home while they were rehearsing.

Which only makes me think that it's probably quite a strain being an actor's SO, with them being away for a lot of time, all the chemistries with co-stars and 'intimate' family-like atmospheres at movie sets, etc. E.g., I'm not at all sure if I would be OK with my BF romantically horseback-riding with a beautiful colleague as a recreational activity, if I were SF.

Also, on the OT note, if by any chance I don't pop in here until after Christmas - Merry Christmas all, it's been a really fun gossip and speculation year here with you guys!
My Christmas wish is that we get a photo of TH with EO (or even better, The JArthy!) in lovingly strained poses and with stiff smiles in Tahiti, or something ;)

I'm joking, let it be relaxed poses and happy smiles, it's Christmas after all!

New pictures of Tom at LAX departing for wherever (Torillia)...don't see an Olsen. Maybe she's just off camera hiding behind another purse??? Lol

796 Name: Anon : 2015-12-22 10:54 ID:tB216AlG


He is such a creature of habit! These are so similar to last year's LAX photos that I had to look to check they were not from last year. They aren't - different bag and he has rung the changes by wearing a blue t shirt instead of his blue diaphanous shirt. Otherwise his outfit is identical even down to the guitar accessory. Has he turned into one of those men who takes his guitar everywhere and insists on playing it at parties?!!


Merry Christmas to all! Or happy holidays if you prefer. It has indeed been a fun year in our little backwater. Looking forward to laughing and speculating with you all in 2016. In the meantime I hope Santa brings you all whatever you desire!

797 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-22 13:50 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>793 You're right, there was a story - I think from TH himself - about going riding with SJ in NM. And he was dating SF during the entire Avengers shoot. And he's nothing but complimentary and tactile and affectionate with his female co-stars. I mean, the CP premiere with Jessica C - they looked like newlyweds.

And I think I would buy the whole 'just friends that do things together' bill of goods if those things weren't all post-filming and - not frequent, exactly - but consistent. Beyond pap night, they've been spotted a few times. Even if only one or two of those spotting are real, he's been seen around with her post-filming more often than any other of his female co-stars. Then there's the tabloid stories. I think Jessica C. has been the only other co-star he's been linked to in the tabs. She denied it and the story died. But this is just not going away. As I mentioned before - there's seems to be too much smoke for there not to be some fire.

Oh, qaz, I love you for your Christmas wish! Jane and Tom will always be my OTP - but you are definitely my second 'JA' and TH pairing.

Here's a funny thing to do though: read this old post, courtesy of the bycycle, just replace Sian (poor girl nobody ever remembers her) with EO, then add the EO material, same old same old.

When I first joined the fandom and delved back into the TH archives, I totally skipped over all things Sian. Could not be bothered.

She gets around, doesn't she. She went to a lot of time and effort to check flights and connections and put together an argument, but it's not a particularly convincing one. She could have just said that he's not seeing EO because he's seeing her. That's her belief, right?

Found this at CB, no link was given mayeb someone else can find it, consider it my Xmas gift.

Someone on tumblr that attended Brie Larsons Q&A for Room at Santa Monica Aero Theatre on Monday said that Brie during the Q&A also talked about Skull and about having lunch with TH on Sunday.

834 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-12-23 07:59 ID:Heaven

Actually I have multiple gifts, there's this post on fb

"19 December at 18:09 · Hickam Air Force Base, HI, United States ·
Had a mini nerdgasm. Just meet tom hiddleston aka Loki and we talked star wars!"

"At work. He goin back to la
Like · 1 · 19 December at 18:13"

Seems like he was on a tight schedule, partying late until morning, then catching an early flight to be able to have lunch in LA on Sunday and then if yesterday's sighting in London was true, either he doesn't sleep or he must have left LA very early on Monday or late afternoon on Sunday.

I'm going to throw my hands up on trying to figure this one out. EO, BL, neither, both, booty call, business lunch, PR pow-wow - I have no idea, so time's up.

>>834 He does seem to burn the candle at both ends when he's filming and then slam on the breaks when he's not. It must be a crazy stop-start sort of existence. But after seeing his digs in HI and getting to have lunch with Brie - I'm not going to feel too sorry for him.

On another note, I am off to see Kenneth Branagh in The Winter's Tale.

Merry Christmas all! Let there be cakes and ale for everybody.

I too am about to disappear, into a land where there is no wifi and no computer (his parents; they are ancient) and where there is wifi but it is always switched off in case the Internet leaks out into the streets (my parents; they are bonkers).

PS No TH that I saw, but I highly recommend catching The Winter's Tale on NT Live when it comes round. It's a great production. And I loved KB before fandom or the Internet had been invented (and when TH was probably wearing short trousers). He has still got it going on!

In reference to what I posted here >>833 the original info came from this post and then there was this one

Happy New Year in advance!

No-one ever seems to consider the possibility that the general public are pretty rubbish at identifying actors, and misidentify them half the time. There's loads of pictures out there of people with 'celebs' that are actually just random people that look vaguely like someone famous. And every famous actor will tell you stories of being mistaken for a different famous actor.

I bet at least some of these THEO 'sightings' are nothing of the sort! I can well believe that someone mistook blonde, petite Brie Larson for blonde, petite Elizabeth Olsen.

As for date-like horse-riding with Scarlett - well, his response at 3.20 ish in this interview is pretty definite:

rolls eyes 'You can go as friends as well...'

Happy New Year to all....

847 Name: Anon : 2015-12-27 21:31 ID:2f5jFzRL

[usual Anon but posting from the parental wifi - they switched it on for me!]

>>845>>846 Maybe it was a double brunch date with THEO and Brie and her bloke! (runs away laughing hysterically).

We did discuss upthread whether all the HI sightings were genuine, and those who had seen the tweets thought some were attention-seeking fakes from teenagers who wanted followers.

Some sightings are doubtless also mistaken identity, though the recent Twitter guy seems to be an Avengers/Chris Evans fan. I'd have thought he would be less likely to get it wrong. I'm less sure what I think about a tumblr anon who says Brie mentioned she had lunch with TH because she was "correcting" a wrong Twitter sighting!

However in my view the jury's out till we get a sighting in Australia!

Hope everyone had a good holiday! I need looser trousers...

>>847 or maybe gayporndude got it deliberately wrong :) - by the way, how can 2 right-handed people eat with arm-around-each-other? lol And is the sex that bad that instead of spending the few hours before he leave in bed they are out eating? lol

Anyway, far from wanting to drag this out since to me the whole thing was closed at TIFF, but the q&a info is easy enough to verify, one would just need to find someone else on social network that was there, or even the host, and ask. Which makes the idea of making it up unlikely.

851 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-12-31 18:13 ID:Heaven

EO on the subway? Was she following a Dior purse and got lost?

The assumption here of course is that TH is also in London, and he didn't pick her up with his jag? Or sent his car? Or a cab? He forced her to use the tube!

852 Name: Anon : 2015-12-31 18:21 ID:tB216AlG

>>851 lol re Dior purse...

As I said, I will await an actual pic on this one (or multiple sightings). It seems odd she didn't take a cab, I agree. But I doubt he would collect her - only a saint would drive around central London on NYE - and as to using his driver, well he didn't on pap night either, which still mystifies me!

853 Name: Whatsinaname : 2015-12-31 18:43 ID:GJNp9UEa

Oh! - also, TH was allegedly spotted in Oxford - alone. No idea which day it was this week. I don't remember which tumblr had that info , which I read yesterday, but it probably will show up in an anon on the bike.

Empire has a long article about The Night Manager, called "A Most Wanted Man" which the Teatime blog has posted. I am on my phone at the airport, so can't link right now.

854 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-12-31 18:51 ID:Heaven

>>852 I'd think the tube would be quite the nightmare for someone like EO, used to rich people and private cars and on NYE.

(he used his jag on papnight, Torrilla posted that photo of his getting on his car, clear sign the man wasn't thinking clearly, he was on a cab and still called for his driver to go back home)

855 Name: Anon : 2015-12-31 19:01 ID:tB216AlG

>>854 He did use his car, you're right. I thought it was bizarre he didn't get it to pick them both up. Cuts out all that waiting and "which is our cab" nonsense.

I'd rather use a cab than the tube any day - especially with London on a high terrorist alert. However if a lot of people are thinking the same, waiting for a cab may be a less preferable option than blending into a fast-moving crowd. Also he uses the tube - and did on the way to pap night according to Twitter - so maybe he has shown her where to go. His house is very close to a tube station and there is no doubt it would be quicker than driving on a night like this.

>>853 Torrilla also I think has the article.

Not surprised he was in Oxford. Christmas visit to his father I guess. Mum on Christmas Day, Dad on Boxing Day or thenabouts, and on New Year's Eve - the last episode of Downton Abbey he has recorded on his TiVo..... ;)

Placing bets that they become engaged in the new year...

Oh yes please the fandom reaction would be so beautiful: "but they denied it, they did, Tom would never lie oh no he's a Disney prince who poops rainbows".

860 Name: anonsy : 2015-12-31 21:15 ID:D5Aqosgp

>>859 Ugh that would be awful. I'm all in favor of celebrities maintaining privacy, and I understand that sometimes the truth is manipulated for PR purposes, but I'd even be annoyed if it came out that they were in a serious relationship and had out and out lied about it. They both explicitly denied being in a relationship at TIFF, when they could have just as easily given a "no comment" or not discussed it. The speculation was going to continue regardless, so it didn't really matter what they said either way.

I also think part of Tom's charm with his fans is that he (I believe intentionally) comes across as honest and not part of the Hollywood Machine, so if it were to come out that he had lied about being serious with an Olsen for an extended period of time, I think his fans would be at least somewhat justified in being upset. A big part of being in the entertainment industry is public image, so I don't think fans can really be faulted for feeling blindsided when a celebrity does something completely contrary to the image they've pushed for years.

All that being said, I think it's possible they were/are hooking up in some casual way, so the "not dating, just friends" statements were technically true, but I don't think it's going to get any more serious than whatever it currently is (if that makes sense).

861 Name: Anon : 2015-12-31 22:12 ID:tB216AlG

>>860 I totally agree with all of this. The Queen's approve to PR was much maligned in the 2000s, but "never explain, never apologise" has a lot going for it as an honest but not revealing approach.

Sad that I missed all the excitement on NYE. We got back home just in time to celebrate at JFK - in the ever romantic setting of baggage claim.

I don't know what's going on, and I'm too over this pairing to speculate. Fan wise, I've been ridden hard and put away wet. I's is done. I will await picture proof (get on it townbycycle!).

In lieu of picture proof, I will also accept a second series of tweets complaining about him banging EO up against a door. That neighbor is probably spitting nails if she's back in town: 'Honey, the door fucker is back - get the ear plugs out. And the binoculars.'

Happy New Year, everyone!

865 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-01 14:55 ID:7WqrPwva


I will second anonsy's sentiments. I would hope he'd be less Bill Clinton-esque in his approach to answering questions 'honestly.' But maybe he now thinks that this 'truth through strict definition' is the only way to protect his privacy/ image.

Also, IF it is true and she was in London with him - girl is playing the long game (and tallying up some major air miles while doing it). And she has to, because you don't want to have thrown over your fiancé for a guy who only sees/wants to see you once a month. As has been said here: she always rocks up to TH, never the opposite. And for this sighting, TH traveling in the opposite direction would seem more logical. We know he's going to Oz soon, probably via LAX. So, wouldn't it seem easier/more convenient for him to fly out to her in LA, celebrate NYE there, stay, spend some quality 'door time' together, and then head off to Oz? And, no, I don't think she made that journey for a special reason (long stay, meet the parents, proposal, etc.).

And it wouldn't surprise me one bit if she showed up in Oz. She seems perfectly willing to get on a plane for two things: fashion shows and TH. (Sarcastic/unfair remark: But not to end an engagement.)

Twitter sighing and video of Tom in a restaurant, didn't see EO but then again maybe Tom got her a bigger purse to hide behind for Christmas.

875 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-03 17:15 ID:D5Aqosgp

If we accept that EO is in the photo, than it's sure that she was in the area. The photo was taken on Haverstock Hill, very close to his house. It can be verified on google maps.

892 Name: M : 2016-01-04 09:57 ID:XSFDK4vn

I first saw them on twitter but they were on many sites. They were made on the 20th or 21rst of july 2015, two days before the dinner at the Wolseley. Tt is possible that the photo was taken in front of the house near his place.
This is my observation. I only used the photo and google maps for comparision

the tweet was made in July 21.

893 Name: Anon : 2016-01-04 10:51 ID:tB216AlG

>>892 I don't think anyone on here disputes that the girl in the pic is EO or that the pic was taken on Haverstock Hill (certainly not me, as I lived on a street just off H Hill for 10 years or so!).

However on here we tend to be most interested in new stuff - and we post it pretty promptly as there are some very good sleuths hereabouts! Those pics were posted here back in July. When you posted a link to pics of THEO in Belsize Park most of us probably scurried to the link hoping for a pic taken yesterday!

894 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-04 12:06 ID:Heaven

I think the poster was trying to prove that the nw3 blogger is reliable by posting those photos. Or at least I hope that was her intent, otherwise I don't see the point of posting photos that are 1 and a half year old.

895 Name: Anon : 2016-01-04 12:13 ID:tB216AlG


Duh! I see what they mean now. Thanks. First day back at work so I have brain freeze.

Though I don't think pics taken in July in any way verify supposed sightings nw3 never mentioned at the time but "remembered" once the news had broken about THEO ;)

896 Name: M : 2016-01-04 12:32 ID:XSFDK4vn

I know. I only wanted to say that NW3 dind't lie about the fact that EO was in Belsize Park, and I bbrought arguments with that picture. The fact that NW3 has other sins that can not be contested is another thing.
I don't know if nw3 posted the pictures and I don't know if he saw them in the area. But if he sad he saw them, then he was right.

I don't know when the pictures were taken. I assumed that they were taken on the 20th or 21st july since they appeared on twitter on the 21rst. I check Town Bikes blog now, she posted the pictures on the 24th july.

897 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-04 12:41 ID:Heaven

>>896 The photos weren't taken by the nw3 blogger, but by an anonymous person who sent them to the townbycycle, then someone took them from there and sold them to the Dailymail. They were taken in July.

The sighting the nw3 blogger talked about back in May when the first article about a possible hook-up appeared, referred to the end of Jan/beginning of February. No photos exist of those.

898 Name: M : 2016-01-04 12:54 ID:XSFDK4vn

@897 OK. Thank you for the information. I didn't know about the sighting from the begining of the year. I actually don't follow their blogs. I just recently entered to see why they were so contested....

899 Name: 705 : 2016-01-04 15:03 ID:sLyoJCVK

@888, I was talking about things that happened with NW3 long before that sneaky pic of THEO was taken. She started to lie about EO NOT being seen in Belsize park because I don't think she liked being questioned about seeing her anymore.

I've been following the woman since she first started the blog and her blog from what I understand is being constantly monitored and screen shot by others as she does have a tendency to delete posts. Her posts just do not match up, like the time she claimed that she could see what he was doing when he did the ice bucket challenge, then she said she couldn't see into his back yard, well that's where the event happened. I'm sorry but that just reeks of suspicion.

I think she's seen EO around this time but just does not want to deal with the potental mess by admitting it, which is her right.

900 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-04 16:02 ID:Heaven

>>899 And why would you think she has seen EO these past days? Why would you think EO was even in the area? Based on what exactly?

901 Name: 705 : 2016-01-04 16:20 ID:sLyoJCVK


NW3 isn't the only one who lives in NW3.

We'll see what happens in the next few months, should be interesting.

902 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-04 16:22 ID:Heaven

>>901 and sharing now what you know would mean committing treason?

903 Name: Anon : 2016-01-04 16:23 ID:tB216AlG

>>899 There we differ as I think she never saw EO at all in Jan/Feb and in reality had no more idea than anyone else who he was seeing. When the story came out about THEO she lied about having previously seen EO to give herself credibility.

I have also had an eye on her blog from the start and the only thing she said, in January 2015, was that an anon (not her) had seen TH with a woman, brunette with blonde highlights. Most people thought it was the Jarthy. See this post from the bicycle:

A few people asked nw3 if the woman was EO - they all knew by then that her engagement had ended and were on the lookout for romance between her and TH, especially as EO had been seen in London (not with TH, not by nw3 or any of her anons, and not in Belsize Park I should emphasise - this was from twitter). The anon didn't say the woman was EO (hence the speculation it might be the Jarthy) and nw3 herself rubbished the idea it was EO (loser fangirls overreaching etc). A lot of those posts mysteriously vanished but some are are still reblogged on the bicycle (see TH thread three on here from about post 70). Nw3 herself never suggested she had seen EO with TH or alone.

Then, strangely, after the first article appeared about THEO in May 2015, nw3 suddenly started saying she had seen THEO together in January - someone on here saved the post and it said: "Anonymous asked: E Olsen did stay with him in London over a couple of weekends, end January, beginning of February.
That she did. I’m not neither confirming or denying anything
May 7th, 2015." Easy to fabricate that "sighting" once the relationship was known.

NW3 claimed in May that she had blogged about seeing THEO in January - I call bullshit on this because the bicycle was reblogging all nw3's juicy stuff in January/Feb and it is nowhere to be found. Also, large parts of the fandom were looking for a THEO hookup from January because they knew about the broken engagement, but there was not a peep. On here we all looked at nw3, whether we liked to admit it or not, and not one single person posted in January/Feb or at any time before May that nw3 had said she'd seen them.

So my view is that she never saw them together in January, but when the romance story came out in May she pretended she had known all along to make herself sound more credible. As you say, she "reeks of suspicion" (great phrase!). I think she probably lives in the area and has maybe seen him a few times, but that's it and the rest (including a lot of her sightings of him alone) are made up - or made up after others have posted on twitter they saw him.

904 Name: M : 2016-01-04 18:00 ID:Vj6icqj0

@899 I got it. But I don't get why nw3 doesn't want to be interrogated about what is happening in her area. She wants to play and test the reactions? She has too much time to lose?
It's to much for me. I give up.....

Sooo, War and Peace just started on BBC1. It's six parts - I think - which would take their 'major' Sunday night programing up to Feb 7.

Do we think they'd launch into TNM the next week? I'm hoping so, as then we can 'honestly' say that we spent Valentine's with TH (even if just via tumblr gif set).

Oh, sweet delusion, never leave me!

914 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-05 17:45 ID:WxYKhqy6

I would think TH - as the lead - will be involved with the Oz shot.

But before, I think he's getting in some TNM (hence the tweet and article) and HR (interview tweets) promo work. Same with Brie (we're totes on a first name basis) and Jason Mitchell who are both working the January awards circuit. I would think the director would be on the ground first, followed (shortly) by the actors.

We will know for sure when he's spotted at an airport...or EO is spotted in Oz!

>>914 Oh I can't wait for all the "sightings" of EO in Australia, especially the ones that happen when she's at an event on the other side of the globe. In case anyone is wondering, the latest tumblr THEO nonsense is that someone posted a scan of magazine pic from the October BFI gala of Tom Hiddleston sitting next to Anna Friel, cropped out the names in the caption, and said it was an exclusive photo of Tom with EO at a NYE party. Someone called them out on it pretty quickly, but still... people are trying to stir up trouble.

Benedict Cumberbatch qualify as a celebrant to marry two friends in Bogota or somewhere. So he has to be priest. Though you did say "alien" so maybe that's who you meant ;)

Okay, Anna Friel totally looks like EO (in that picture).

Guys...Tom is dating Anna Friel!!! She was in HI, she was on the tube NYE. After EO dumped him, he sought solace in AF's arms.

The truth is finally out.

Update on the theatre (again, said in a fancy and dramatic way). Seems he was just there to see the show. He was alone and stopped into the box office to talk with the staff during the interval.

I'm not going to cry for him, Argentina, but I think this is a little sad. Dude shouldn't have to go to the theatre alone and then stop off in the box office for company.

I don't care if she's as interesting as wallpaper paste and has the intellectual firepower of a wet match - if EO's presence means that he has company at the theatre or at a restaurant, I'll stamp it 'approved.'

Or: Maybe you should let him out of the sex dungeon more often, Anon. You know, let him go out so he can meet some new people.

926 Name: Anon : 2016-01-05 22:59 ID:tB216AlG


Totally agree - cf my post at >>791. He seems a rather solitary soul. What happened to all his friends from Cambridge and drama school?

AMC is doing its TCA in pasadena and on Friday they are presenting TNM, according to Variety only Hugh Laurie was in attendance but it could be old info.

"VietNamNet Bridge – The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has said that the Kong: Skull Island film crew has completed its survey in Vietnam to start shooting the film in Vietnam in February."

The article talks of the crew also filming in Detroit and being in Australia filming since Jan 1st. I can't understand if this filming in Vietnam will include actors or not.

Article about Thor 3

I know here we already pointed how Loki is impersonating Odin so likely there'll be more Hopkins than TH, but the addition of Ruffalo to the story in his bromance journey with Thor, the fact that Ruffalo knew more about the script and director than TH, Hemsworth and Feige latest on this film, makes me think that Chris is taking back ownership of this franchise by moving the spotlight away from Loki and that Feige agrees with that.
So we might get even less TH in Thor3 than fangirls expect.

>>941 that's my point, TH is the only one on the other side of the pond, Samuel L. Jackson says they are all back on set on Monday, so given that Brie is doing her award campaign, it makes sense to gather them all in one place on one flight. All the more if TH is going to attend the AMC even, even if unannounced.

>>938 >>941 >>940 Dur, he's got to drop EO off in LA. Obvs. And he left one of his four shirts in HI, so he's got to pick it up. I think it was blue one...or the other blue one.

I think it depends on flying conditions and paths and so on, but as I understand it, the time difference between 'via LAX' and 'via Dubai/Singapore' is only a few hours. The jet stream really does help coming westward across the Atlantic.

And if he does have work - if only a meeting or two in LA, then the extra mileage/time isn't avoidable.

949 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-07 17:49 ID:3qZkwGOv

>>937 We did mention this, as you said. At the time, I - and I think others - was all for TH weening himself off Loki and the Marvel franchise. He's had some teething problems with the last few non-Marvel movies, but if he doesn't make the break soon, then he might end up being known as 'the guy that played Loki.'

And because he's a 'minor' character, he can make that break more easily that Hemsworth or RDJ. CH has tried so hard to get away from being Thor, but that's not worked out. And RDJ is Iron Man at this point. Most people would be hard pressed to name another movie he's done beyond the Marvel ones. Does anyone remember Chaplin or Less Than Zero - even Sherlock Holmes? Not really.

TH can still escape. Run, TH, run!

950 Name: Anon : 2016-01-07 18:37 ID:tB216AlG

>>949 But CH hasn't escaped because he can't act. When I saw Thor I thought he was pretending to be a knuckleheaded blonde beefcake confused by the world around him. After a time I realised that he is a knuckle-headed blonde beefcake confused by the world around him.

953 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-07 22:01 ID:3qZkwGOv

>>950 Oh, yeah, I agree. CH is never going to have critical acclaim, I don't think. I think he got closest with Rush, but critics praised the movie as a whole more than his performance. Still, he's not even managed to find commercial success outside of Marval - they've all been stinkers/box office poison.

TH has had critical acclaim outside of Marvel, but I think 'the general moving-going public' know him as Loki. And the Loki-lovers are a significant part of his fanbase too. So, despite his ability, he might end up being 'that Loki guy' as a lowest common denominator.

Whispers: I wouldn't mind just seeing a short Loki cameo in Thor 3. I'm okay with him 1) not being in Infinity Wars or 2) having very small parts in IW.

So, we've got the answers to at least one question:

Was she in HI? Yes.

Does this mean they were together in LA? Was she in London? I think the evidence would point toward 'very possible' if not 'yes' as well.

I also think this may be developing into something more than a FWB.

(In olde tyme movie news voice) Stay tuned for more on this developing story...

960 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-07 22:45 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>958 But it's her.

I'm never right about these things but... I feel as if they've dodged and denied because of the timing, i.d., the end of her engagement. She doesn't want to be accused of having an affair, and TH doesn't want to be seen as 'the other man' who broke up an engagement.

Sooo, I wonder if they've gone underground and as going to emerge as a couple - yep, you know what's coming - when they start doing press for ISTL. Maybe a few coy references in print and then a confirmation in a joint interview.

Or maybe they'll just keep denying it until they're up at the altar!

961 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-07 22:53 ID:D5Aqosgp

I can't really tell because I'm on mobile but is it definitely EO and not Erin Moriarty, actress who was at the wrap party and looks a lot like EO?

962 Name: Anon : 2016-01-07 23:00 ID:tB216AlG

>>960 Definitely her on the top left pic. Not sure about the one on the top right. That might be the other girl who looks a bit like her, though the pics are so tiny it is hard to tell. But she is definitely in some of the pics and if that is from the wrap party that says to me, girlfriend. You don't bring someone to a work "do" unless they are what a friend at my work charmingly calls a "non transient other."

Agree re hiding it due to the timing (as we said all along since May). He is about to look like a right prat when he confesses that contrary to previous assertions he has been seeing her on and off for a year; now everyone will be 100% certain there was overlap as opposed to wondering if there might have been.

963 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-07 23:04 ID:D5Aqosgp

>>962 Okay I've been looking at pics from HI and this collage is from the laser tag night - everyone is wearing the same clothes. Which means it WAS EO jumping up behind Tom in the gray jacket, which can be seen in the top right photo of the collage. Guess there was a photo booth at the laser tag place.

964 Name: anon1 : 2016-01-07 23:05 ID:PiA4WJQQ

>>961 That's definitely EO. Besides, Jordan Vogt-Roberts follows Moriarty on instagram, so he would have tagged her too in the pic if that was her.

965 Name: Anon : 2016-01-07 23:07 ID:tB216AlG

>>963 Ooh good sleuthing skilz! I was looking at TH clothes which is moronic I know as TH only has one tshirt, doubtless chiselled off him by mum over the Christmas hols for a good wash. When was that? At the time she was seen in HI or at another time?

>>965 Marc Evan Jackson posted his laser tag photo on 11.21. The sighting was the weekend of the Paris attacks, so 11.13/14.

TH only showed up in a few of the laser tag photos that went around. He wasn't in every laser tag photo because he was off tagging EO!

968 Name: qaz : 2016-01-07 23:20 ID:tY18OJ3i

I agree, definitely her. Maybe OP feels the compulsion to just deny deny deny and hope that then it goes away :)

Sooo.. I too wonder if she gets to become someone to write home about, at least at some point.

969 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-07 23:23 ID:D5Aqosgp

>>965 I think most of the EO sightings were within a few days of laser tag, so she must have been in Hawaii that week.

I'm still putting my money on FWB but we'll see. Whatever level of relationship JA was, I think this is the same - maybe slightly less as of now. He brought her to a few events, went on a tropical holiday with her, said he was single... same old same old.

(Is it wrong that I'm secretly hoping our EO-hating friend pops in for a discussion?)

970 Name: qaz : 2016-01-07 23:23 ID:tY18OJ3i

>>972 One hears JVR has the emotional intelligence of a peanut so I am not surprised he has let the cat out of the bag. If there really was a cat. We did think she was probably in HI (or all of us except one...!) and as anonsy has demonstrated this photo dates from then. Not a return visit for the wrap party.

I still say - if she flies to Australia then it is game on. Probably. As I type this I do think slightly that EO is thirsty like the Jarthy, only with money enough to follow him round the globe. He doesn't do the chasing, seemingly.

976 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-07 23:36 ID:D5Aqosgp

As you said - the thirst is strong. And, remember, you can't let the man you turfed out your fiancé for get away without a the death! She's going to be white-knuckling this one.

>>975 I said back when I said it, July or August that there were a lot of similarities with JA, except that EO has not only the money but 3 times the ego because she has a name, she is prettier, she is an actress.

But, goodness, here goes his credibility, even if it's the absurd case that EO is stalking him hoping he will fall head over heel and marry her, this shattered his image for good.
The comments at JVR says it all.
The AMC panel should be fun, maybe he'll skip it now.

For really, for the life of me, I can't understand how an intelligent man would choose to do this? How does this help ISTL? How does this help him promoting HR or TNM?

989 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 07:21 ID:Heaven

(the post above was mine)

It certainly is strange to fly to Hawaii for the weekend and spend it with the film crew at a laser tag game. It doesn't smell of gf exactly.

990 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 07:45 ID:Heaven

I know you guys established this but that is EO, sheis wearing the same sweater (didn't she feel hot wearing that while playing laser tag?) she was wearing at Savannah Film Festival

991 Name: Anon : 2016-01-08 07:50 ID:tB216AlG

>>989 The comments at JVR are like ours over the last 7 months (less eloquent and witty obviously). "Why lie"; "I never know about this relationship till they brought it to the centre" and (my favourite for its pithiness) "just makes them both look inauthentic, fake, silly and guilty." None of this would matter particularly if TH weren't obsessed with telling us all how authentic he is in his public persona.

>>989 not sure I agree! If you have your FWB fly in for a booty call you are maybe a little discreet with her. But if it's a GF and there is a friends from work event you bring her along.

>>987 Yes this is becoming very noticeable. The day the HR trailer is released?!! I could believe JVR just dropped the ball and didn't think, were it not for the fact that there are probably a lot of photos of EO and TH on people's phones witch they have not posted, presumably because they are aware that there is media interest and that the lovebirds wish to fly under the radar. So why now, eh?

A random thought: BL said she had lunch with TH on 19.12 and I joked that maybe it was a double date with her and her bloke and THEO. She's in these photos and has met EO. Maybe I wasn't so far from the truth there!

992 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 07:53 ID:Heaven

>>991 I agree with that, my point was that TH was on set from Monday to Friday so if you can only spend 2 days with your gf after not seeing her from some weeks, maybe you don't go straight to a laser tag game with the film crew. But it's a personal opinion of course.

Ok, this might turn into an exclusive for you guys, so back in November SLJ posted a photo of him on set with Miyavi (the Japanese actor in Jolie's Unbroken), I thought it strange since he wasn't announced as part of the cast but today he posted a photo at Brisbane airport so maybe he is also in the film.

Yes this is OT, but I'm bored with last night photo already.

995 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-08 08:41 ID:D5Aqosgp

>>991 I don't think Tom is particularly social media savvy. I'm sure he knows that people will take pictures and post them on the internet, but I don't think he necessarily considers how much people post and that his coworkers or director might think nothing of throwing a bunch of pics up on Instagram that he expected to stay private. Tom may have thought he was being discreet.

Or - alternative theory - something in the dynamic of the THEO relationship has changed since the photos were taken, so JVR thought posting the pics wouldn't be a big deal. For example, THEO broke up and is no more so pics from a couple months ago are no big deal. Or (less likely but still possible) THEO are going to go public as an item and so JVR thought pics would be okay.

>>992 I'm with you on this one. I had a friend who had a FWB who was from another state but passed through our city every so often for business. When she was around it was very casual, she'd hang out with our friend group, do activities with everyone, drinks, whatever, and then the two of them would go back to her hotel or his place to do their thing. They usually didn't stay the night together. On the other hand, another member of our friend group had a long distance boyfriend, and as soon as he got into town we barely saw either of them until he went home. I could go on forever with examples of people I've known but the general pattern is that long distance FWBs tend to be more group social while long distance BFs/GFs are more isolated for the time they have together.

>>995 After Tahiti and Papnight you'd think he'd know.
Either he isn't as intelligent as people would have us believe, or since it truly looks like EO is following him around trying to escape obscurity, like qaz put and the photos certainly support that, it may be it was her last attempt at something more than friend - whether she succeeded it's left to be seen.

In any case, like we said just before TIFF, the problem is that now is going to stick. It will be difficult for him to do another interview like the one in the Guardia this autumn stating:

  • “I have tried with all of my power for there not to be any inauthenticity,” he says. “There is no version of me presented to you that’s been created or is artificial. The people I’ve always respected have an integrity that is unassailable”

and still feel credible. Like anonsy said a few posts ago, part of his charm was his uniqueness in the Hollywood world of coming across as genuine, now even if with EO is over or it was never on or whatever it is/was, nobody will read his interviews in the same way. What's strange is that he could have avoided all this confusion.

So my question is, do we think he is really that stupid?
And are we due another Seneca quote on fb? Because my bet is that he might say something, if the media pick up on this and with Boyd interview fresh in everyone's mind it won't look nice and it won't certainly help ISTL or any hope of a nominee for Hank.

JOrdan Vogt-Roberts took down the the photo.
Not that it matters since it's everywhere on the internet but maybe this way the media won't be able to make an article on it?

>>997 Wow, what a mess. I'm thinking he probably took it down because of all the fighting in the comments. It's still up on another Instagram related to Kong so it was likely that rather than Tom asking him to remove it. No crazy comments on other Kong person's post as of now, so it'll be interesting to see if they leave it up. I hesitate to post their name so as not to direct any fandom wars in their direction... you never know who's reading this board.

>>999 Could he have close the comments? Not an instagram expert.
Anyway it's the middle of the night in LA so unless TH got a call from Luke I doubt he was up to see this mess. He will, because one of the twitter fan account he follows tweeted it, as it did a twitter fan account for EO.
