Instructions for the board are here

I don't think you can disable comments for a specific photo, so he had to just delete it if he wanted the discussion to stop.

At the very least, even if Tom doesn't see the photo fiasco on the internet, I'm sure JVR will tell him next time they talk.

What an absolute mess to start our new board with. JVR is sucked into the vortex that is Tom Hiddleston's love life. Seriously, though he is in the industry and TH was the star of his upcoming movie at the time of all the Pursegate articles. He must have seen that shitstorm and known this was a subject of massive interest. But he posts the picture anyway. What a wally.

5 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 10:12 ID:Heaven

The post laser-tag Star Mag article from Nov. 30th comes to mind, maybe that was EO getting back at TH for not falling in love with her.

6 Name: Anon : 2016-01-08 10:55 ID:bgcXLLLp

FWIW the Celebitchy line on Fassy/ Alicia Vikander is that he never discusses their relationship or even confirmed its existence and she is desperate to say in every interview that she and he are an item. Eg for some recent awards ceremony they didn't walk the RC together but she couldn't wait to tell everyone she and he flew down together. I don't follow them so I don't know how fair this is (TH and his love life is a full time job!) but I found it funny given how EO has always seemed to be the one who Wants This Out There.

7 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 11:14 ID:Heaven

>>6 I also don't follow them, but by googling her, Alicia doesn't need to tie her name to a more famous actor to stay relevant, she is having a great moment, lot of recognition and nominees and her own franchise possibly if The Man from Uncle will have a secon chapter.

EO is the one who doesn't have any future project announced, the one that faces competition from actresses her age (let's remember she is 26) and older since she really doesn't look her age (no shade, she said in a recent interview that people always tell her how she looks older), Scarlet Witch is no Back Widow, so all in all she needs the buzz and a better image.

9 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 12:03 ID:Heaven

>>8 you mean that's what she is aiming at, exploiting TH connections, or she has been already announced for something?

10 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 12:19 ID:Heaven

The BAFTA nominations were announced yesterday, was HR a possibility? At CB someone mentioned HR and BAFTA but I seem to remember the film it wasn't eligible for this year BAFTA. In Theory TH might be away in Vietnam on Febr. 14

11 Name: Anon : 2016-01-08 12:40 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>8 I reckon you're right. It would give her cred as an actress (probably!) and it would make the booty calls a lot cheaper!

12 Name: anonymous : 2016-01-08 13:16 ID:wEfn4bVf

>>9 I think she got good cred from her performences in MMM and ISTL ... it would just be a way to work and be together, esp if the Oz Thor shoot is short.

Also: yes, cred.

Is there any chance we see them together at the Golden Globes?

15 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 17:04 ID:Heaven

>>14 why would TH be at the GG? He has no reason to and he starts filming on Monday so unless he can teleport...
Besides, AWKWARD! Boyd will be there for Narcos.

16 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 17:06 ID:Heaven

Olly's new BFF aka the director's PA still has the photo up. So Olly surely knows.

Oh and I was right about Miyavi, he is definitely in this film

17 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 17:28 ID:Heaven

Oh what do you know M you might be right after all, he was at W Magazine pre GG party last night, no photos and no EO mentioned in the list of guests, snap!

18 Name: Anon : 2016-01-08 17:35 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>14 I imagine they will still want to be under the radar for a while. They may not yet be more than FWB, and even if they are now officially a thing, it is a bit soon. They have to find a plausible timeline, as I bet they will not want to admit they lied at TIFF, and will pretend that they truly were not together at TIFF and have somehow found love since then. At the present time there isn't much "since then" to play with - Oct to Dec when he has been away filming for most of it.

19 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-08 17:42 ID:iKYRFMaB

Just a quick post: tweets about people at TCA16 interviewing TH, so he is there.

She wrote her dad worked in production and she was an extra when they cast Asian actors to film some scenes just before xmas.

26 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 18:32 ID:Heaven

>>20 I got what you meant, and to be honest I still think he won't attend the GG for the reason I gave you, filming on Monday. Actually, I don't know how reliable is that guestfaguest website, you won't find TH listed on the A list on W Magazine website because he is considered a B list actor, so unless we can find another source to confirm maybe he was there, maybe not.

Ugh. I was going to write a probably too-damn-long post about THEO. But I just don't have it in me.

So all I'll say is: If it can't be 'Ave JArthy' then any girl will do - and EO fits that bill. A real human woman should be his frequent companion - not a pair of boots or his PA.

38 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-09 03:19 ID:8c72Ic/o

Now, an important question to end the night:

Do we think TH has had his hair chemically straightened? It's longer but with no curl.

39 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-09 03:34 ID:YO42PGlY

>>38 I've wondered that myself. I doubt he goes to the trouble of straightening it daily himself, so he either has it done professionally or all the years of drastic coloring have taken a toll on his hair. Did you also happen to notice the gray in his temples and by his ears?

>>37 I don't know Tom so I can only speak from my own personal experience, but I'd rather be alone than with someone who's not really what I'm looking for. There have been some stretches of time where I was single and I got the usual pitying comments and glances from friends and family, but it doesn't really bother me. I absolutely prefer to have a partner, but I find it better to be alone than in a draining or 'wrong' relationship. Tom strikes me as quite the workaholic, and he might very well prefer to just be single or hang with friends or be in some kind of casual arrangement instead of investing time and effort into something he knows isn't going to last.

40 Name: Anon : 2016-01-09 05:12 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>38 >>39 This is a far more interesting question than who he's shagging. I am saying no to the chemical straightener on balance because the results are inconsistent and at times his hair is still very bouncy and sticks up. See for example the recent LAX IG photo with a male fan. I reckon because he was travelling we are looking at a self-administered blow dry there and it is very different from these pics (which are VERY straight and which I don't like - any man will look receding with his hair blown straight back from his hairline like that. Stylist probably didn't want to let him get away!!). His hair varied a lot in Toronto and NYC depending on who was doing it: for example here it looks very curly:

Also in that photoshoot of him in a white shirt looking very blonde and curly (from same shoot as the one where he is up to the knees in leaves. Sorry - 5am and I am too tired to find a link but we all loved it on here due to his fluffy golden-ness).

It's very short at the mo - a lot of the curls have been scissored off (sob!) and it really wouldn't take long to dry. I imagine he's learned a thing or two after years of sitting watching other people do it.

41 Name: Anon : 2016-01-09 05:24 ID:bgcXLLLp

He is wearing the same tshirt and jacket he wore at the airport. I despair.

Am I alone in thinking he looks a tad stressed in these pics? He usually looks dreamy and smiley even when not actively smiling but there is a lot more bitchy resting face in these photos.

42 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-09 05:35 ID:YO42PGlY

>>40 I always forget how much easier and faster it is for short-haired people to blow dry their hair. I prefer the curls, and the photoshoot in the leaves is one of my favorites.

>>41 You're not alone, I thought the same thing.

43 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-09 07:42 ID:Heaven

>>38 >>39 >>40 if anything all the drastic colouring would dry his hair even more making it even more curly, he probably put some gel soon after washing to have a neater look. I imagine when it's longer the curls must be difficult to handle.
Anon, which photo for the gray?

>>39 anonsy I agree with you, much as I felt sorry for him (as much sorry as you can feel for a good-looking talented, famous, rich actor) when he was nominated as ambassador for BFI and he didn't have anyone important by his side to celebrate, I think being with a fill-in or the wrong person will make you feel even more lonely. Not to mention it's ver insensitive toward the fill-in to lead her on.

44 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-09 07:43 ID:Heaven

>>41 yes, a bit tired and tensed, but it'd be easier to judge in a video, photos can be deceiving.

45 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-09 08:10 ID:Heaven

The Hollywood Reporter also confirms the presence of TH at the W Magazine GG Party so he was there and he was flying solo.

46 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-09 08:25 ID:Heaven

I went and recovered the laser-tag photo

I've got to say guys, that this (and the collage photos) is a step further then the BoraBora hand, I mean I thought that when TH walked off stage in Nashville leaving her alone to flap her arms was weird enough for someone so chivalrous and courteous, but here and in the collage he's basically ignoring her!

>>39 Re: greying temples - I see it here (direct link in case you're on a phone) Also, will someone please tend to that nasty looking spot above his lip that's about to pop?

Here's a collection of TCA16 tweets from charmed Hollywood journalists; watch out, it's all kindy gushy:

48 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-09 08:29 ID:YO42PGlY

>>43 You can see the gray coming in on the sides in this pic, courtesy of torrilla:

49 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-01-09 08:31 ID:u1vu1eqv

Apparently, this tweet in particular was responsible for those WTF looks TH (and possibly HL) were making during TCA16:

50 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-09 08:33 ID:Heaven

>>47 >>48 thanks guys, I have still to go through Torrilla. Indeed, it looks gray. Is it a spot or just his beard badly illuminated?

51 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-09 08:33 ID:YO42PGlY

>>46 Couch, I wonder if your comment at >>5 is true. The dynamic between the two of them always seems like she's chasing him and he's blowing her off.

52 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-01-09 08:34 ID:u1vu1eqv

>>48 excellent closeup. I can definitely see that it's grey growing in.

53 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-09 08:50 ID:Heaven

>>51 I know anonsy, as I said yesterday can this man be really that stupid or willing to do all this pseudo PR game for a film that is DOA? A 34 years old man not even knowing how feels about someone he has been friend with for 4 year and fwb for a year so he goes and denies something that he plans to keep on doing? It doesn't make any sense at all.

54 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-09 08:53 ID:Heaven

>>49 I wonder what the tweet was, but this is why this silly situation with EO is problematic, when the time comes to do press for ISTL in March journalists will surf the internet looking for infos about those two, so even if the collage now won't make it to the media, it will still be found and possibly used in the near future.

55 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-01-09 09:14 ID:u1vu1eqv

>>54. It was a photo, according to another post somewhere, but what the photo was of, I know not. According to yet another participant tweet, TH thought it was stalker-y ( though it was not clear if he did or did not use those ). Can't wait to watch the video of the interview. I love Hugh.

56 Name: Anon : 2016-01-09 09:19 ID:bgcXLLLp

A bit more curly haired Tom. It's all in the blow dry - I like this much better!

57 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-09 10:29 ID:Heaven

>>56 the curls are glorious.

some at CB actually think that's Erin Moriarty, but the girl in the first pic up left truly looks like EO. Why would the director delete the photo if that was Erin? A simple "no that's EM, not EO", would have been enough.

58 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-01-09 17:39 ID:u1vu1eqv

In my last post, I meant to say, in parentheses, that it was not clear whether or not TH actually used the word 'stalker' or used words that directly implied the reporter was one.

59 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-09 17:54 ID:8c72Ic/o

>>14 >>26 I've got no idea if he will or will not be at the GG. I'm hoping he does show - just to see if his +1 is someone other than Luke. Not naming names - just someone other than Luke. ;)

Olly's in Oz. No word on TH. No twitter sightings at airports.

The Guardian today memorably described the Golden Globes as "the Liam Hemsworth of awards ceremonies"


61 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-09 18:04 ID:Heaven

>>59 It seems like he rented another villa. Come to think of it, Olly was staying with TH in Hawaii; it must have been awkward if EO was around during that weekend.

65 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-09 18:22 ID:8c72Ic/o

>>8 >>11 I wonder if she's got the chops or name for a West End run. As I understand, to star/headline, you've got to either have true acting cred/significant stage experience or a name to make productions take a gamble on you. Does she really have either?

She received rave reviews for MMMM (is that enough Ms?), but her movies and work has been a little meh since then. Before TH and before THEO, I saw MMMM, Liberal Arts and Old Boy. I loved MMMM - a really engrossing story, characters, everything. And her performance was spot on - very realistic and natural. Liberal Arts was awful, so her performance was compromised by the plot/cheesy dialogue. Old Boy: I actually liked it (maybe the only one), but of the performances I found hers to be the weakest (maybe tied with the guy who played the Stranger). And despite being in a Marvel movie, I don't think she's that big name or cache wise. She's still the twins' sister before anything of her own making.

I feel like she would need to audition for a West End play - that is theatre/producers wouldn't be offering her things. Not even if TH had a word in someone's ear - I don't think he has that sort of pull.

66 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-09 18:24 ID:8c72Ic/o

>>61 Nah. Olly would have gone to stay with his PA buddy. TH probably put a tie on the front door and Olly knew he had to make himself scarce. Or, she got her own place and they went there.

67 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-09 18:26 ID:8c72Ic/o

73 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-09 18:37 ID:8c72Ic/o

>>69 At this point, all movie awards are the prizes at the end of a very expensive and calculated game. The game of selecting the bait-iest film (look for dark, troubled, outsider characters!!) and then throwing money and PR hand-over-fist at whatever body of voters exists.

I don't think the HFPA are anymore reliable or immune to campaigns than any other voting body. Although, by all accounts, Academy voters are those most swayed by campaigns.

>>65 There has been the odd thin-on-talent celebrity casting in the West End - for example LiLo in Speed the Plow, which raised a few eyebrows. That said, LiLo has a greater notoriety I suppose. I imagine most Daily Mail readers were aware of who she was and what her story was whereas I doubt EO is really known in that way.

As to acting chops, I'd say she traded on her family connections to leverage good looks and a fairly mediocre talent into one or two good movies and a number of later ones of gradually declining quality. Save for AOU, a franchise which is definitely bigger than her, her career has been on a downward track recently (jury's out as to whether ISTL will revive it). I think she also traded for a while on the general amazement that she was a better actress than her sisters (who set a low bar - I read an article recently that said they couldn't even act as babies!). However that only works for a while and as people have said on here, she is not an ingenue any more. Her apparent lack of new projects (I checked IMDb just now and there is nothing even in pre production) speaks volumes - for her career and also I'd say for her more limpet-like qualities around TH.

I VERY much doubt he could get her or anyone a gig in the West End. Unless, maybe, he agreed to play opposite her - which would be a guaranteed earner. Unless he is very much more in lurve than his evasiveness about the relationship suggests, I think that is unlikely! I cannot imagine him wanting his return to the stage to be a circus like that would be.

77 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-09 19:00 ID:Heaven

She has been limpet-like (great simile!), however, I don't think it's been completely one sided. He's a big boy, he can say no (behind closed doors, if not in the public eye). But it doesn't seem like he has.

95 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-01-09 19:47 ID:u1vu1eqv

Welcome N8Anon! I guess I'm no longer the newcomer.

>>76 One of the tumblr posters confirmed earlier this week that TH doesn't have anything listed in the pipeline in IMDBPro (more info there than their public IMDB), which seems a bit worrisome, unless he requested nothing be listed for privacy/strategy reasons. I don't have an account, but I'll do some sleuthing and get back to you on EO.

97 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-09 19:50 ID:Heaven

>>95 His public IMDb at least shows SI and Thor 3 as current or forthcoming, which I guess takes him up to the end of this year. Hers shows nothing except Infinity Wars in post production. Be interested to know what her pro one shows.

100 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-09 19:54 ID:8c72Ic/o

>>97 Oh yeah, that's the public eye part - I agree, he can't say no to strangers (you know, the non-confrontional pleaser type).

I do, however, think he's capable of saying no in private and, more specifically, of ending a relationship. I mean, do we think Ave JArthy, full of thirst, (crosses self) ended that relationship?

101 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-09 20:05 ID:8c72Ic/o

>>96 He wouldn't! But do we think it's just that (no strings attached rumpy-bumpy), or, more importantly, does TH think it's just that.

She seems invested - even to us - so wouldn't she appear the same to TH? If he didn't want that (sex with investment), I think he'd tap the breaks, so to speak. Or stop the Jag and tell her to get out, as he seems to have done with Ave JArthy!

The next few weeks/months are going to be soooo juicy: birthdays, filming in exotic, far off destinations, press junkets, maybe joint filming on Infinity Wars - so many opportunities to gauge this relationship!!

102 Name: Anon : 2016-01-09 20:13 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>101 Who knows how it appears to him. I would say that various limpets of my acquaintance are quite good at hiding their yearning, because everyone knows that the ticking of the biological clock is not an appealing sound to the average limpet-ee. And I think men are quite adept generally speaking at closing their eyes to limpeting if they are enjoying the sex and the fun. Since they don't even live on the same continent it must be quite easy to maintain distance.

103 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-01-09 20:15 ID:u1vu1eqv

>>100 Possibly, but not probably? Maybe she was hoping for something to happen in tropical paradise that didn't, and then the picture debacle - hey, that one was taken down too - and that seemed the end of things. The thought of her deciding she was too humiliated by that incident to continue the relationship makes sense for other women but...I dunno, does the Blessed Ave JA have a limit to her martyrdom?

104 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-09 20:17 ID:YO42PGlY

>>101 I don't know, it's always easier to judge these things from an outside perspective. We can all tell how invested she seems, but maybe in private she's saying all the right things to keep him around? (This is assuming that nothing has changed since November and they are together, which I'm having doubts about.) And, if he has a hard time saying no to strangers, it might be even harder for him when it's a friend or loved one.

>>95 >>99

I think TH having nothing is far less worrying than EO having nothing simply because she hasn't had anything significant for awhile. Apparently her part in CA:CW is blink and you'll miss it. Even her part in ISTL, while important, is on the smaller side. And as people here have said: she's got to make hay while the sun is shining (before 30 in Hollywood!)

107 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-09 20:25 ID:8c72Ic/o

>>103 Martyrdom!! I love it. As you all know, she's a saint in my eyes. Think about it:

Things attributed to saints:

  1. Visions/Sightings - Tick- She's always being seen at G&W and any brunette with highlights is automatically JArthy.
  2. Miracles - Tick - She engineered a Bora Bora vacy out of a - seemingly - FWB - relationship.
  3. Healings - Tick - okay, that one's not really a tick, but just wait, just wait.

108 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-01-09 20:41 ID:u1vu1eqv

>>99 - EO has nothing more on IMDBPro than what's showing on IMDB, and she's ranked #95. By contrast, Tom Hardy, for example, has 8 listings in Pro - unlabeled or labeled 'script,' 'optioned,' or 'pitch.' He's listed as the #5 actor in the world on IDMB this week.

Guys guys, let me remind you of limpet #1: Sian, 1 year attached to his tailcoats and just a friend.

111 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-01-09 21:03 ID:u1vu1eqv

And she managed to break away without an embarrassing photo-deleting episode and tumblr crash. (That was before my time - am I missing something?)

113 Name: Anon : 2016-01-09 21:14 ID:bgcXLLLp

Anyway, if you do, I think this is TH in a nutshell: rich, powerful, handsome attentive, charming, always got a woman on the go, not unwilling to see her and hang out, but is allergic to the word GF and never introduces her to his mother. It seems to have been his pattern since he broke up with SF.

Now watch him as he brings EO to the GGs - specifically to spite me!

114 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-09 21:21 ID:Heaven

>>111 she didn't have photo-deleting episodes, but she attended numerous (more than JA and EO combined) public events with him (google her on google images you'll see). I bring her up because everyone here is Jarthy! :)

116 Name: Anon : 2016-01-09 21:56 ID:bgcXLLLp

117 Name: Anon : 2016-01-09 22:03 ID:bgcXLLLp

We worship the Blessed JArthy because she touched the Holy Conda of Hiddleston and she let us all know she had, oh yes. None of this "people can think what they like" crap. When did the Pope last say that about a miracle, eh?

OMG, my captcha is 'peaner' It's making fun of me.

120 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-09 22:12 ID:SKuCBz5r

I think she got friend zoned hard. From what I gathered from her tweets, she went to the Avengers after party in LA with him and they even went on some vacation together where they shared cocktails on the beach together. Then after attending a bunch of events with him and retweeting and following everything of his, she got some hate from fangirls but she braved it. However after his UNICEF trip, she simply disappeared for a year.

I think he may have been taking her to events to help her network like he did with his other friend John McMillan ( the guy from that Friend Request Pending movie) but she may have thought there was room for something more. When it didn't pan out after he got back from UNICEF, she left Twitter and only came back after a year.
What is with Tom and these girls? After SF, he certainly seems to have a history of these kind of "friends but may more?"

121 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-01-09 23:11 ID:u1vu1eqv

They were openly affectionate in public, real bf/gf-like until a paper reported them as married, from what I've read in archives. A few embarrassing questions from the press, and they were over, along with an FB comment of Thank God from her friend.

122 Name: Anon : 2016-01-09 23:15 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>121 A friend of mine, a journalist, swore he was married. She is pretty savvy about this stuff as it is her job, so the rumours must have been pretty pervasive. I never heard about the FB comment. How embarrassing.

123 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-10 01:12 ID:YO42PGlY

>>122 I think the paper that made the error was fairly reputable, so people generally assumed it was true. Tom corrected it in a couple of interviews and SF corrected it on her Facebook, but the rumor stuck around for a while. I'll see if I can track down some screencaps, I know they're on the internet somewhere.

Unless of course they WERE secretly married and the paper accidentally spilled the beans. Nothing would surprise me at this point.

I don't think this was ever posted but this is a photo of EO celebrating Boyd's birthday in Colombia on Sept. 2014

She doesn't look very excited, maybe she was already thinking of dumping him for her higher profile co-star. The irony of it, considering ISTL bombed, Boyd with Narcos is having quite the good moment and she has to impose her presence with TH and literally jump into photos to remind him she exists.

130 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-10 09:13 ID:RuxZSXOx

131 Name: Anon : 2016-01-10 09:37 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>130 She suggests elsewhere it was for copyright violation, which could only be if she had posted a pic to which he owned copyright. The only pics of his on the internet were a few Facebook selfies, and I cannot imagine he would spend the time and money that would require to get those back, especially as they were blogged elsewhere.

As for the location: the most tumblr can do is identify the IP address of an anonymous message (not sure if it can even do this for random views from someone without an account). I checked my IP address and three different geolocation providers suggested Hertfordshire, London and Primrose Hill. Not very precise! Primrose Hill is very close to where TH lives but somewhat less close to where I live so you couldn't reasonably assume that anyone viewing her blog with that geolocation was him. Maybe she thinks my visits are him!

I truly don't think he will attend the GGs because filming for Shitty Island starts Monday and unlike Brie he doesn't have a nomination, but if he is still in LA you'd think he'd go to the BAFTA LA Tea Party, instead he didn't. So I'm fairly certain he might already be in Oz or on his way there.

A bit from Brie's interview in the Daily Telegraph

"Brie is in Hawaii, filming Kong: Skull Island, where she and co-star Tom Hiddleston are ‘running around in the jungle the whole time, laughing like children’. A greater departure from a cramped shed it is hard to imagine. ‘It’s a bigger production than I’ve ever been involved in, in every way,’ she admits."

139 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-10 15:49 ID:8c72Ic/o

>>129 Hmmmm, I'm skeptical simply because any official cease and desist letter worth its salt (legal and supportable) isn't sent to a blogger using a blogging site, but to the legal department of the site itself.

I understand that when she started blogging (2011?) Tumblr was a fairly new/small company (hadn't been sold to Yahoo yet). However, they would have still been the first port of call for official legal action.

It wouldn't surprise me - given some of his fans - if some well-meaning Hiddlestoner (ugh, hate that term) mocked something up and sent it along.

It must have been an electronic letter, not? Does tumblr require a physical address to sign up?

140 Name: Anon : 2016-01-10 16:55 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>139 You don't need an address these days. Doubt if you ever have - it is all by email. The initial contact for a copyright violation would be from TH to tumblr, but tumblr would then send a letter to the user demanding that they remove the content. I assume this is what the bike refers to - and that she inferred it was originally from TH because the content was his.

OT: how was your work thing? Does NATO throw a good party?

142 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-10 17:23 ID:5qEt5bUn

>>140 Ahh, I thought that she was speaking about an official letter directly from TH Inc. (Luke, his people, his lawyer). It's strange that she used the word 'letter' as opposed to 'email.' I guess I'd say something like: 'He sent a letter to Tumblr and they sent me a cease and desist email' or 'He reported me to Tumblr.' Her wording makes it sound more direct.

NATO does, yes - for the big-wigs (I've only been to a few of those - free booze and food, silver service, music). This one was for a mix of less important divisions, so it was just okay. Free food (nice buffet) but only two bottles of wine at a table of eight. And as for company - I was more than happy to slip off to the loo and outside to the smoking balcony (I don't actually smoke) to check twitter and post TCA updates.

OT story for QAZ (I'm shouting her name, so she hears me!!!):

At the work do someone made a comment about Latvia, but then said 'or maybe I mean Lithuania - they're the same really.'

Oh, no you DIDN'T.

My response: 'No, they are not the same. Where are the fighter planes for the Baltic Air Policing mission based? Lithuania. Who agreed first to commit troops and spearhead a response following the Crimea crises? Lithuania. Which Baltic state has the finest English speakers? Lithuania (I didn't have proof for that one beyond your posts here - still used it). They are not the same.'

I think Chris Evans said that IW was meant to shot back-to-back this summer and autumn, does anyone remember? It seems like TH may be going from T:R to IW directly without any room for anything in between.

So, do we think that the text-less pic of David Bowie (what a shock that was!) is the 'new' Seneca quote?

If anything, this might be a smart way forward for his twitter: work/promo posts and the rare picture only post to reflect on a major event. Maybe re-tweeting co-stars tweets, as he did with Brie.

150 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-11 19:42 ID:Heaven

>>148 I've just read an article about IW and the directors Joe & Anthony Russo say they have a board with 67 characters, Thanos against everyone. So if cameo is going to be it will be small for sure.

"Private security guards and a large police presence surrounded the closed set, which was erected about 1km south of Jumpinpin.

You could not get near the places at all, there were police and security absolutely everywhere,” said one visitor to the island yesterday."

So if someone tweet they saw EO on set you know it's bs

“Filming should keep going until the end of January when the production bumps out but expect several of the stars to stick around.”

153 Name: qaz : 2016-01-11 19:54 ID:wxE9Uiiq

>>146 Yes, plus million!

>>147 That's it, lets ride into the sunset together! Or at least have a group hug or smth :)

OK, back to TH, or we're going to be banished from the thread :)

>>145 >>148 I like Loki as a character in general, I would watch Thor 3 if he returned, but I will certainly survive if TH only has a small cameo, or even nothing at all.
Not even because of EO, I just don't really feel that he (Loki) has anything new to offer that we haven't seen yet and I would rather watch TH in new projects.

>>149 I don't even check TH's twitter lately. I suppose it is a better decision for him to keep it mostly work related, but also - boring.
Not that it was ever very interesting IMO, since songs of the day and inspirational quotes usually only inspire me to unfollow people sharing them. And I wasn't in the fandom yet when he was reportedly more open or genuine, so to say, so I missed all the fun.

OT: I was so shocked when I read about David Bowie this morning, so so incredibly sad.

154 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-11 19:54 ID:SKuCBz5r

Unless they see EO and TH out and about the town. That's how they were sighted in Hawaii, at a farmer's market and I think some cafe.
She's gonna show up. Can't stay away from the Hiddles for long!

155 Name: Anon : 2016-01-11 20:07 ID:sddEev2o

>>154 actually EO "was spotted in farmers market " was a post on IG that was just mentioned, there was never any screencap of that post, but even if it really existed, she was spotted there alone, without TH. Don't twist the story

156 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-11 20:28 ID:SKuCBz5r

Not twisting the story. On CB the person who had seen the IG posts about the sightings said it was both TH and EO and something about holding hands? Because I remember the IG post person being quoted as saying they saw Loki and Scarlet Witch. There was never screen caps provided for any of the EO Hawaii sightings except for the Twitter one but as we can all see she was obviously there.

157 Name: Anon : 2016-01-11 20:36 ID:sddEev2o

>>156 Ah celebitchy. It explains everything. I know what you mean, but the poster was clearly misinforming others about the IG posts. The tweets you refer to were made by a troll account trolling some crazy fan, but everybody agreed that it's very very doubtful that there can be a IG post mentioning Tom and Lizzie and not found by other th fans except one. So, basically, the IG post never existed. The Twitter user Jamie tangy mentioned them as Loki and scarlet witch. That was the only legit - more or less - truthful sighting. More or less, because no one except that girl saw her, and tweeted about it. And it was on 11th or 12th, when crew had a day and night filming, so I side eye that. Lazer tag collage is the only one proof Lizzie was there -on 23rd, and 25th She was already in L.A. giving some kind of award or something.

158 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-11 20:45 ID:SKuCBz5r

Okay disregarding the IG one, and going off the Twitter one, claims of EO being in Hawaii did turn out to be true. We may hear about her popping up in Oz and unless there are pics people will probably ignore them or call them trolls or attention seekers until some one accidentally posts something and the truth comes out.
Either way, whatever THEO have, EO seems to be doing most of hauling and going out of her way to do it. Shows the level of investment each one has.

159 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-11 20:46 ID:SKuCBz5r

Also was there a video made of the TCA for Night Manager? Have they done videos for TCA in the past?

160 Name: Anon : 2016-01-11 20:56 ID:sddEev2o

>>158 agree. Btw Jamie tangy never mentioned them holding hands, just that she saw them. That's all. And again I side eye this tweet too because of filming schedule. My personal opinion is that Lizzie was there for a day or two, perhaps for one weekend, since later after that lazer tag evening we knew and saw photos of TH with his lonesome self when he could spent time with her. Which heavily points to be it was Bora Bora v.2. We all Remeber ehat happened after BB v.1. Lizzie seems to be or was very invested. I doubt she will show up in Oz. But that's me.

>>159 As far as I know no video recordings were made.

161 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-11 21:03 ID:SKuCBz5r

But THEO was sighted again in LA after the Hawaii laser tag outing and then that sighting of her in London and her bestie's IG showing that she was in London too. That's why I feel like she might show up in Australia again. I don't think whatever they have is over yet. Doesn't matter though. In this day and age of social media, everything manages to come out in the open somehow. So we wait and see!

Damn. I really wish there was some videos of TCA. He looked so good in the pics! I want to see that in motion.

>>161 By a gayporndude? But Brie Larson herself said she was having lunch with Tom that day so I go with mistaken identity. Plus this it was somehow silly two right handed people wrapping their arms around each other while eating. Not very handy huh? As for spotted in London - there was a tweet about Tom being in NY at the same day, but since it had nothing to do with Lizzie people ignored it. You see, tweets made by teenagers, gayporndudes and gossip mag journalists (that had their article coming out the same day) are shady. Try to take it with a ... ok, take it with a huge spoon of salt.

163 Name: qaz : 2016-01-11 21:18 ID:wxE9Uiiq

Hm, I have a feeling that probably something more than a FWB situation or Bora Bora v.2 is (or at least was) happening. With Bora Bora, JA at least got to have a vacation on a beautiful tropical island, plus the company of course. Now, if EO was there only for a day or two, do you do something like that for a FBW? Waste your time, money, effort to go there for a couple of days to have a laser tag with their current film crew? I know I wouldn't, unless I considered it "worth it", like something you do for a BF (potential BF?) to stay in touch with them.

Unless she's THAT invested and THAT 'limpety'.

All speculation on my part, of course, since we don't even know for sure how long she was there.

>>163 I see your point, but I don't understand why people Love to forget the denial at tiff? Some just ignore it as if it never happened.

Now, let's imagine we forgot about the denial. She could have gone there for last try. You don't spent Thanksgiving alone without your GF, when you clearly have time at your hands and do nothing. You invite her to your sisters wedding and go to her sisters wedding. You spent as much time together s you can. You don't ignore her on stage in Nashville making her flap and wave her hands. You don't deny having her in your life. You don't make her follow you but her self to where you are without putting any effort to do the same for her. But you do all the following to FWB.

In addition to this I was curious if people thunk th doesn't care what his fans think and he doesn't "own us shit" why did they both went through strict denial? When you don't care you say no comment or confirm. In my personal opinion -very personal opinion based on what I saw - there isn't much to talk about. If it was Jessica Chastain at lazer tag people wouldn't even think anything. We forget that actually this two - Tom and Lizzie really can be just friends. I don't see the logic in conspiracy theory, I'm sorry. I dint see logic in it being more (the most) Then FWB.

They are together so I think you should just learn to cope with it and get over it.
No amount of trying to disprove sightings is going to change that, they are together, end of.

As for Bowie, sad sad news, end of an era :(

Do share more! Where and when did you see them? And feel free to add more info that could shed light on the nature of the relationship THEO might have. I feel like it's FWB situation with EO a little more invested in it than Tom.

To Couch, is Anon ID:sddEev2o the firebrenie and JDunn poster who is a lil one flew over the cuckoo's nest? If so her denial makes sense. Actually, there a few other people, some posters on lipstick alley who are also dead convinced that there is nothing going on between THEO. Their reasoning sounds very much like the "LALALALA I CANT HEAR YOU!" type.

Okay so it is her. After JVR's IG fiasco, pretty much most fans have accepted THEO are together or seeing each other in some capacity. With the exception of Lex and a few others who ship Tom with either Emma Watson or Hayley Atwell. They're still having trouble with the idea of Tom with an Olsen.

192 Name: Annony : 2016-01-11 23:22 ID:s5B9HMwK

Thanks for the welcome, tried to post this before but it ate the post saying that the code was wrong.

@184/187: It's really not that interesting but here it goes anyway. I saw them last Friday morning at a gas station in Old Pas (Pasadena). Was a little surprised to look up and see Loki getting out of a black SUV, behind him this petite blonde woman got out as well and they stood by the car and kissed and hugged while he was talking to the driver. It was all very quick, I didn't talk to them or go up to them because it just felt like if I did it would have been too creepy. I just finished filling up my car with gas and I drove off. I had heard rumors that they were together but after seeing them in person, I just thought "oh I guess the rumors are true" shrug.

BTW: Elizabeth really favors her sisters, I met one of the twins years ago and the She's taller though and not as tiny, but same face shape.

@173 again whatever. Not telling you to believe me but I am going to say this in the nicest way possible, you really need to get a grip, honestly.

193 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-11 23:36 ID:RuxZSXOx

>>187 I agree with you about the FWB thing, and that she's definitely more into it than he is... much like the situation with JA, which, keep in mind, went on for a year and a half and only ended after some unknown explosion in Bora Bora (something to do with the photograph? her favoriting tweets about them as a couple? who knows).

Tom the workaholic seems to find someone whose company he enjoys as a friend to some level but isn't what he's looking for in a serious partner, she's willing, they carry on until the woman's level of investment becomes too much or she tries to push him into a bigger commitment, and then it ends. Unless something goes "wrong" there's no reason for Tom to end it - he likely prefers having a thoroughly vetted FWB he feels like he can trust as opposed to casual hookups with people he doesn't know well. Also, when you have a FWB you can more or less rely on regularly scheduled, um, Benefits when you need them.

One more thing, someone (qaz? I think it was you) said something upthread about traveling to Hawaii being too committal for a FWB, but EO has always been a globetrotter, and for someone with her money and resources taking a brief trip out to Hawaii is more like a regular person driving a couple of hours. Even before ISTL she was always flying out to London, Paris, NYC, and other random cities for no particular reason.

194 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-11 23:39 ID:3MF+ks8/

>>192 As >>191 said, the vast majority on this board came to the conclusion that there's a relationship through all of the sightings. As I've said, so much smoke, but no fire? We're just waiting to see if they go public, how they introduce it and so on.

What is interesting now is, if they go public, how do they work the timeline.

We've discussed that Pap night was perhaps meant to be their debut, but it didn't go to plan (her behavior), fans' reactions and the dodgy timeline regarding her broken engagement.

>>18 Anon mentioned that if they go public, they need to find a plausible timeline that dodges the homewrecker label for TH and...well, any number of labels for poor EO.

Thanks for your insights, Annony! Please stick around and enjoy the ride!

195 Name: Anon : 2016-01-11 23:43 ID:xdK7WmeT

>>193 Well said. Who would want a casual hookup with the risk they tell all to some rag?

I think Europeans have a different attitude to distance (well, Brits do anyway). I have American fiends who would drive 2 hours to get a pizza. If you drive for 2 hours in the UK you are in a completely different part of the country (unless you are trying to cross London from one side to another). I would NEVER drive 2h for a FWB. I'd call that a committed relationship!

196 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-11 23:48 ID:3MF+ks8/

>>193 I think it's probably the nature of any relationship with TH that the woman is 'more invested'. He's 34 and is hungry for success, critical praise, award wining roles and all those things actors want. She's 26, seems somewhat ambivalent about her career (start booking those gigs, girl) and started this relationship after ending a engagement/3 year relationship. Of course she's going to be more invested, but who knows, she just may tame the Hiddles!

197 Name: Anon : 2016-01-11 23:50 ID:xdK7WmeT

>>194 It's the TIFF denial by EO that screws it up. I'd rather they just said "yeah we lied at TIFF because you're a bunch of nosy bastards" but I doubt very much they will do that, so they have to now pretend that they got it together after that.

Whether this one will go public I don't know. As with the JArthy I feel a pushmepullyou about that, with her saying yes and him saying no. Something a bit more than pure publicity shyness, I sense.

198 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-11 23:51 ID:3MF+ks8/

>>195 Two hours for a pizza! Are they from Montana? That has got to be a damn good pizza.

199 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-11 23:53 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>192 Seems like he took her with him to the TCA if they were seen in Pasadena. Either she went there with him or hung around the town while he worked.

>>193 You're right. With Jane Arthy, I think she may have expected something more when they went to Bora Bora but he probably declined. Her deleting her twitter and starting all over again was very telling.

I feel like all his FWB things start out with the female friend saying she's cool with everything being casual with the expectation that if she hangs out around him long enough and makes her available to him all the time, he'll commit to her but seems like that tactic goes downhill. If Elizabeth dumped her fiance to be with him and they've been FWB for a whole year, she may want some commitment from him. She doesn't seem to have anything lined up apart from Marvel. There was talk last year of her doing Taylor Sheridan's Wind River with Chris Pine but no word on that movie. She's usually had 1-2 projects in a year in the past. But if she's put that career on hold for ol' Tommy boy, girl may just be looking for long term commitment from him.

I feel like they'll just decide to keep it all quiet and play the "please we're too dignified, we're not going to share our private life with you" and these sightings will continue until they break up or Tom decides she's the one and they hitch it up. FWIW, I don't think they're going to get hitched. I get a feeling it may fizzle out by this summer.

200 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-11 23:54 ID:RuxZSXOx

>>196 True, especially if one of the reasons she ended her engagement was that she had gotten involved with Tom or even just for the possibility of getting with him. If you end a 3-year long relationship for a shot at something, you're going to try your best to make it happen.

Honestly though, I just can't see the Hiddles being tamed by someone who has confessed to not reading books.

201 Name: Anon : 2016-01-11 23:55 ID:xdK7WmeT

>>196 Maybe, maybe. I've been around the block enough to have seen that with that type of man it is rarely the "endlessly available" girl who does the taming. Men who never have to chase tend mostly to be entranced by the woman they have to chase.

204 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-11 23:59 ID:3MF+ks8/

>>197 They both sort of denied it. She did it outright, but in a joint interview, he implied it - or at least didn't disagree when asked if they were just friends.

Why or why? They should have said 'no comment' or structured the interviews to stay away from their private lives.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say...drum roll...this looks like a relationship. Long distance, casual, but something a step or two above just FWB. Now whether they're on the same step...ummm, see >>196.

205 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-12 00:02 ID:3MF+ks8/

>>202 Okay, now I understand. In Indiana, you HAVE to drive 2 hours for decent pizza.

206 Name: qaz : 2016-01-12 00:03 ID:wxE9Uiiq

>>192 Thanks for sharing, Annony!

>>193 Yeah, it was me with the too committal thing :) Sure, the money is not a problem for her, I agree, and she does seem to put more effort than he. But for me it's probably not so much her visit to HI, but the fact that they spent time together with his friends/colleagues, plus all the sightings, plus all those tabloid stories... Of course I can be wrong, it's all just guess-work. We'll have to wait and see!

Oh, and although I think that it may be something more than FWB, I don't really see them ending up together. I can imagine 'dating' of sorts for some time and then a break up. But then again, who knows, they may surprise us!

207 Name: Anon : 2016-01-12 00:05 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>204 Yes I remember. In retrospect his "implied" denial is closer to a "no comment" than people believed at the time, due to her having done the dirty work with the outright denial.

Yes, I agree that "no comment" was the only way to go. Some of the madder nannies are accusing anyone expressing an interest of "acting entitled", but really! You create that sense of entitlement by drawing attention in May 15 to a relationship that nobody had rumbled, and then by pap night and the denials etc.

208 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-12 00:05 ID:RuxZSXOx

(Putting this out there, if Tom Hiddleston was my FWB and I had a million dollars and no work to do, I'd sure as hell fly out to Hawaii to see him for a day, regardless of whether or not I thought the relationship was going to get more serious.)

209 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-12 00:07 ID:RuxZSXOx

>>207 I swear there was another interview from TIFF where the author mentioned asking Tom if he was single and getting a definite yes from him, but I can't find it anywhere.

210 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-12 00:09 ID:3MF+ks8/

>>192 >>199 >>203 If it was Friday morning, the TCA was held at a hotel (a very nice hotel) in Pasadena, so I can imagine that he stayed with her after arriving - maybe she even did the airport run (in that case she is WAY more invested - ugh, the LAX airport run!). His driver picks him up at her place, she tags along, waits in his hotel room during his press work, and time!

Off to write some THEO fanfiction....

211 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-12 00:10 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>203 lol that seems to be her thing though. Hanging around Tom to finish up whatever he's doing so they could spend time together.

>>206 Could be a slow burn type of relationship. If he's not hiding her from his colleagues and friends, then he's probably not ashamed of being seen with her. Then it's a regular relationship then that's taking longer to run its course since TH is busy working and can't spend long amounts of time with her unless EO is the one making the effort to come see him.

212 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-12 00:11 ID:RuxZSXOx

Oh, and a personal anecdote - I had a good friend who was in a FWB relationship for a bit more than half a year... at least that's what he thought. She was going around telling people he was her boyfriend and even bitched some other girl out for getting too close to him. A mutual friend confronted her about it and she admitted that she had developed feelings for him and thought she could shift the relationship into something more serious, but it went terribly wrong. These were adult people, mid-twenties. It happens.

215 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-12 00:18 ID:3MF+ks8/

>>207 Well, going back to that May 15 article, we had decided that this was EO's work, as USWeekly is her mag of choice - exclusives with her engagement, end of engagement.

Maybe since she leaked, she had to do the outright lying at TIFF when they decided to pull the turtle's head in.

216 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-12 00:21 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>212 That's what I've mostly seen in FWBs. One party is usually always more emotionally invested and thinks if they play it cool for long enough the other party will come around and it'll be a happily ever after.
It never happens though. I haven't seen any FWB turn into a stable relationship. I've just seen the guy get bullied or emotionally blackmailed into being with the girl but then it all goes downhill really fast since he doesn't really want to be with her like that.

217 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-12 00:24 ID:3MF+ks8/

>>211 It has to be casual/slow burn, just because they so rarely see each other. And there were plenty of times - long stretches - when they could have been together (end of July, all of August), but weren't.

Even if they wanted to throw people off the scent, there are ways to do that while still being together, i.e., vacation to some rather remote place or the opposite: NYC - anyone can get lost in NYC.

218 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-12 00:25 ID:YO42PGlY

>>215 I'm not understanding why. If they are really in a secret boyfriend-girlfriend relationship, why 1) leak it to the press, 2) do pap night, 3) outright deny it, and then 4) be all lovey dovey in public places? I'd even get being caught once by fans, maybe twice, but surely their PR is aware and therefore they are aware too of all the social media sightings. For God's sake the first sneaky fan pic was sold to the Daily Mail! They KNOW people are watching them! If they were really wanting secrecy, wouldn't they be more... secretive?

219 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-12 00:29 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>217 Maybe they were seeing each other during then but got lucky and weren't spotted?

I keep getting the feeling they hangout according to Tom's schedule rather than hers. So if he's busy and can't make time then she doesn't visit.

220 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-12 00:36 ID:3MF+ks8/

>>218 There are so many possibilities for that article. She wanted to establish their relationship in the public sphere or they both wanted to leak it to get people talking before ISTL (leverage a real relationship). Maybe it wasn't a planned leak, but someone sighted them together and sold the story (maybe someone on the ISTL set?).

Relationship wise, he seems to like to keep his head below the parapet, so I would think that he wanted this relationship introduced via a tabloid. But who knows at this point.

221 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-12 00:56 ID:YO42PGlY

>>220 But none of it makes sense to me, not just the initial article. If I imagine it to be any possible scenario, from just friends all the way up to serious relationship, or even some progression from one to the other, everything that they've said and done seems completely illogical. Which is why I always end up circling back to FWB, because that's what seems to best fit all of the evidence.

222 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-12 01:56 ID:3MF+ks8/

>>221 If - if - there is one thing we've ALL agreed on, it's that nothing makes complete sense in this situation. But I think that's part of the fun; we get to gossip and speculate as we try to make it make sense!

None of us will ever know the truth until TH publishes his official biography, i.d., the only book EO will ever be eager to read! There will be an entire chapter - or series of chapters - addressing the 'EO Years.'

Chapter Three: She Has More Chemistry with the Gate: Pap Night '15
Chapter Four: We Draw Straws to See Who Gets to Lie at TIFF (Alternate Title: It Was Just Dinner!!)
Chapter Five: 'I Mean We're Definitely Friends' (with Benefits)
Chapter Six: For Fuck's Sake, Jordan: The Laser Tag Scandal

Hell, this relationship might get its own volume in TH's five-part memoirs!

223 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-12 02:07 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>222 LOL that's gold!

>>221 anonsy, a lot of the confusion has to do with the poorly done tabloid leaks and EO's freakout during pap night. If those leaks and pap night was supposed to be their coming out, then someone should get fired because they botched it up. They could've have a great coming out as a couple at TIFF if done right but maybe TH and EO's publicists dropped the ball somewhere.

That (>>222) is why I love this board and the cool and funny people who post here! If you read back the old boards (not sure how long you've been lurking) there are many more. It's fun to speculate...!

I have read everyone's wise comments and YES to all of it especially >>199 which rings very true on the basis of what we hav seen.

A couple more oddities:

1)US Weekly really did come out of a clear sky which is why I think it came from them/her. There were no pap pics or speculative articles and (as I have said before) no sightings from nw3anon who pretended after US Weekly she had seen them together back in Jan). Whether to establish a timeline, to generate publicity for ISTL (seems a bit early though) or to forcibly introduce herself to he mother of his FWB, who knows.

2) Let's not forget the looooong gap between Pursegategate and TIFF when TH was in London not working and she was in LA not working (and spotted by paps various times). No sign at all that they met up during that period. He doesn't seem to have been up to much - that guardian article, the gq shoot, the Coriolanus commentary - but no contact. This relationship seems to blow hot and cold - or did they take a break after Pursegategate and take it up again in HI? He seems to be blowing hot at the moment - though that coincides with a geographically convenient time with filming in HI and lots of flights via LAX.

3) >>226 Quite.

230 Name: Anon : 2016-01-12 07:47 ID:bgcXLLLp

233 Name: Anon : 2016-01-12 10:13 ID:sddEev2o

Wow. What a story. I'm impressed, perhaps >>192 need to start writing fanfiction or something, sounds so "conviencing".

But may I ask why the simple and pure logic cant stand against the specualtion and gossiping? Maybe because the truth is simple and its boring to talk about it and its far more intreresting to talk about non existing things because you can give your fantasy a go?

At least I can screencap the conversations I had with a person who was extra in SI and lived in Hawaii and not far from the place where Tom was renting his place and show the evidence, but why - why? - the words of >>192 are taken as truth when mine or any other persons who actually uses logic are taken as crap and stupid denial? Maybe because it suits the fantasy of some people? I'm ready to bet that If i wasnt posting anything now this Annony person wouldnt even pop up with their " story".

>>221 Thats right. It is illogical if you put it through "they are together" but if you take it as it is - friends , co workers - then it is logical. Because the photo evidences are actually rather simple - they arent kissing, hugguing and doing all the other things. And you could actually expect it from a photo that I'm sure Tom wasnt expecting to be posted.

>>209 I give a support because yes, there was an interview, if you like I can find it.

And I seriosly have an impression that there are just 5-6 people running all over the web - herem, L-Alley, tumblr and say one and the same things so they seem like a mass. Some dont even bother to change their posts - just copy paste it.

>>231 Couch, I'm noy going to troll anyone. And I'm not trolling anyone. I'm sincerely confused by everything people say.

234 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-12 11:10 ID:Heaven

>>233 lex, I'm hardly your biggest fan, actually quite the opposite, I honestly can't stand you at all, especially because I know they kind of things you were posting last here on tumblr, so I know the level of your delusion and obsession.
But, for once, I wasn't even referring to you.

That being said, can't you just let go and go back to your twitter? Things are the way they are, which is either they are together in one acronym form or another, or they are not.
You coming here to the rescue, as if we need you to do our thinking, not only doesn't make any difference, but given your reputation it pisses people off to the point where even if you say something sensible they are going to ignore you.

Morning! I find all of this stuff so confusing!

236 Name: Anon : 2016-01-12 11:35 ID:sddEev2o

>>234 At least you admit things I say have logic, I think I will be happy-ish with that?..

But let me ask you this and I really want a reply - as you can see I'm just sincerely curious, because I try to see what some others see. Sorry in advance for long post - you can delete it later.

I dont see the delusion and obsession. I dont like EO to the point of hate but its not just because of Tom. Things I was saying have a strong back up of evidence from people who actually are or were around Tom, again, as I said, I can show names and screecaps of things they were telling me. What about others? I honestly dont see the reason of gossiping after the clear as a day reply to that siatuation at TIFF. All I remeber that some nearly chocked from happiness after the first article, and went right in denial calling Tom and Lizzie liars when they said they arent dating. Wasnt THAT delusional? Wasnt that crazy? Everybody asked them to say something ( fans I mean), they said something, but some didnt like it because it didnt fit the fantasy or juicy gossip. If the "liars!" thing came after any photo ( like JVR posted) I couldve understand the reaction and words, but right after the denial? So, honestly, to me ( and not only me thanks god, there are people who think the same) people who are trying hard to push it into something more then what has been said by subjects themselves - they seen delusioanl, obsesive and crazy gossipers. Dont forget all of this began from gossip - and it was Toby who first started predicting "the relationship" and pushing it hard. It then went where it went.

I'm not trying to rescue anyone ot snything, I'm still just trying to make others see the other side of the story, because people who think like me are clearly scared to death to come out with teir ideas because they are labeled as crazies, and yes, I mean other posters like Gaga Doll on L-Alley and couple of others who agree with her.

>>234 just to add to everything I said above: sometimes the easiest explanation is the right one, because you know that truth is always simple. And the easiest explanation is that two grown up people addressed the situation they could ignore ( nobody was poking mics in their faces or chasing them to get an asnwer) and made a statement. We know what kind of statement.

>>229 I've been lurking here since thread 4. I did try posting once, made that error where I left the name field blank and ended up with Couch's name lol. Got caught up with work so I couldn't post for a while but I did come and read whenever I got the chance.

I like it here. No one is taking the THEO stuff so seriously and having fun speculating and gossiping and cracking jokes. I don't like the extreme opinions of full blown denial of THEO or the full blown THEO 4eva!

Also, thanks! I'm 199 too and that's my take on THEO so far. I think they perhaps may have wanted to come out (or at least one of them may have) but botched up on the tabloid leaks by using the timeline of "sparks flew on set" because the public thought she was still engaged then and therefore, THEO got a barrage of those homewrecker cheating comments. Then they went underground and their PR did deflection pieces until they decide to come out later with the timeline of "things got serious at TIFF for these two friends of four years" blah blah but then Boyd's interview may have thrown another wrench in their plans so now they're probably just laying low.

Or they don't care. It's no strings attached fun and they hook up whenever Tom is available because the way she flies over to see him whenever he may be, home or working on set, it seems like it's more around his schedule than hers.

She has got the wrong story. She says "they were together whe the tabloids called it over"; she should be saying "they were [?] together when they had said they weren't." I will laugh at whatever Michael has to say at Dlisted. Don't know about JJ: will he publish given that JVR has taken it down, implying it's a "private" pic not a pre-authorised pic of EO fondling a carrot at her local farmers' market?

@233, what I saw in front of my own eyes was proof enough for me. shrug

I've been reading this board for a while and I just thought I'd say something that's all. The two people I saw looked like a couple, and that was my impression. I don't know exactly where in their attachment they currently are, if they are fwb or bf/gf or even married. They didn't tell me and I don't have a horse in this race.

>>242 Lainey's 'missing the point' story is strange, because SHE herself interviewed both at TIFF and commented on the 'alleged relationship.' She referenced the article we're all referencing (I don't think she herself asked them) and said that while she didn't believe their denial, they had stayed away from each other at TIFF.

>>246 LOL! It's not THAT bad. It's just dating. But maybe work out a PR strategy that isn't a throwback to the 1980s? How about that THEO? Also EO probably forgot that even tho she dumped Boyd in Oct and started romancing TH then, the general public all thought the engagement was called off around Dec since the announcement was made in Jan. Let's see what new timeline they'll feed us if they come out as a couple.

On the subject of timeline: If they do go public, I wonder if the Nashville premiere is going to be 'ground zero' for a public relationship. They were terribly cozy - yes, that word - on the red carpet. Those pics would do better service than TIFF and Pap Night combined.

>>259 I'm sensing some latent hostility towards hoverboards. Bad experience with those infernal devices? lol

Yeah the Nashville premiere might end up being the new "sparks flew on the red carpet and everyone witnesses their sizzling chemistry and how cozy the two looked with one another" and they'll use that pic of the two of them where she's laughing so hard it looks like she can't breathe. I'm thinking end of Feb early March for the PR breadcrumb trail to start and then an unveiling of sorts at the April premiere.

What do we think TH got EO for Christmas? Airplane ticket to Oz? Condoms? Purse?

262 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-12 20:22 ID:YO42PGlY

>>261 Good question! Definitely not books, since she doesn't like reading. I'm gonna go with a purse large enough to cover the entire top half of her body the next time they're "accidentally" at a paparazzi hotspot together. The real question is why fashion-conscious EO didn't buy her BF some new clothes for Christmas - he's still wearing the same three shirts. Surely that must bother her. Though if their relationship is what I suspect it is, she probably doesn't care much about whether or not he's even wearing a shirt.

265 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-13 02:19 ID:YO42PGlY

>>242 Also, even if we do consider the the tabloid relationship timeline, the "THEO is over" stories didn't come out until after that photo was taken. So technically the tabloid stories about the breakup could still be accurate.

266 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-01-13 05:42 ID:u1vu1eqv

FWB relationships can blow hot and cold - that's the nature of an open-ended arrangement that runs around each other's schedules (personal experience with 3 different time of my l). The difference with them seems to be that she has not been busy since Captain America : Civil War finished filming, so she has more flexibility. So I completely believe that she was in Pasadena and they kept it all on the down low so as not to repeat PurseGate Gate, especially after the collage picture from JV-R. I think there is enough of a friendship there that, once he's finished filming SI and IW and comes home to London to do Richard II (or III? I forget) and maybe Robert the Bruce, will have the chance to gel into a real romance, or find that it's not strong enough.

Either that, or I'm wrong! Hey, 50/50 odds ain't bad...

>>261 I'll go with a first class ticket to Oz and a new phone with global calling capability for 24/7 sexting (he bought himself one too so they can have private numbers that neither family, friends, or work know about).

Okay I've been sitting on this since the original post but... Who the hell gets out of an SUV at a gas station to publicly make out with someone they're trying to hide? Who makes out at a gas station in the first place? Why would Tom and Lizzie both be getting out of the car? Were they pumping gas together? Why them instead of the driver? I just don't think that story makes sense.

Do I think there was something going on between them? Probably. Is it still going on? Maybe. But I don't buy the gas station story for one minute.

269 Name: Annony : 2016-01-13 06:32 ID:s5B9HMwK


That's fine but to clear up a few points: I never said anything about Tom pumping gas for the car, it was the driver who did that. And they weren't "making out", a kiss and a hug (he kissed her on the forehead and they hugged, maybe I should have been more detailed about what I saw but honestly it wasn't that big of a deal) and as for reasons why the got out of the car. Who knows, people do get out of cars at gas stations, maybe he had to go pee, maybe he had to stretch his legs? Should I have gone over and asked him? 7 in the am, half assed asleep on my way to work, asking some movie star why he got out of his car. No, don't think so.

I don't like people putting words in my mouth, if you don't believe me that's fine but don't add your own narrative to it.

>>268 I think it goes without saying that like everything on the internet, this story should also be taken with a quite a grain of salt, but... maybe he's not trying to hide her so much? We have a pic with his arm around her in his own native neighbourhood, the PursaGate (in spite of weird facial expressions and purse/scarf antics, they still were in a popular pap-favourite restaurant), now a collage with friends/colleagues. Whatever is going on there, does not seem that he's avoiding to be seen with her in the open at all costs.
As for getting out of the car, maybe they wanted to stretch their legs or smth, lol.

That being said, a pic would be the best proof, that's for sure.

>>269 don't get offended! But it's natural that when anyone shares a sighting of a celeb, ppl are gonna wanna know details. The details you've shared now give a whole new perspective on the THEO situation than just saying you saw them hug and kiss at the gas station.

For what it's worth, many here thanked you for sharing what you saw. We didn't question you so please don't get offended and leave. People will always ask questions but I think it's safe to say that on this board, it's more out of curiosity than trying to call someone a troll or liar.

AMC would have put its guest in one hotel and organised transportation to the TCA panel in Pasadena for them to arrive at the same moment. Am I supposed to believe they provided cars without a full tank? Am I supposed to think that TH got to Pasadena and told EO to get lost until he did his thing? Am I supposed to think that all the other actors headed to Pasadena but TH dallied at a gas station? Of course now it will come out that it wasn't on tha TCA day, so why TH would be headed to Pasadena? But even if he rented a car why would the car need gas? Rentals always come with full tank. It's even more absurd then the NYE sighting.

285 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-13 08:19 ID:Heaven

the person behind is definitely a guy, no woman would ever wear that beret. I think those posters just wanted to go on about EO to cuase some reaction from TH, that's probably why they mentioned the dailymail.

286 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-13 15:48 ID:Heaven

So CB did her post about the collage photo using the fact that EO attended Stella McCartney’s Fashion Party Last Night. And insinuating the pregnancy.

288 Name: Anon : 2016-01-13 16:11 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>286 Totally confused as usual. She thinks this was a recent photo because she does not have anonsy to compare the laser tag pics and tell us it was from then! So she is spinning this idea that they have spent the whole of the holiday season together.

EO does look lovely - but I don't think this is a pregnancy glow, I think it is a no goth makeup and not wearing black glow.

289 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-13 16:16 ID:Heaven

Anonsy - as she said - was just looking for clarification and expressing doubt about some parts of the story. Totally normal messageboard stuff.

>>275 Well, if he stayed with her Thursday night, then they might have sent a car to pick him (and her if she was tagging along) and bring him to event at the hotel. They would have booked him into the hotel, but that doesn't mean he needed to stay there - he might have crashed with a friend ;). Then, she waits in the hotel room for him to finish with the press events and they get to have a nice good-bye before he leaves.

All speculation, but honestly there are so many scenarios that could work.

I'm not completely sure of the timing, however. I don't recall when those pics of him arriving at LAX were - Thursday? Friday? Or when he left after the TCA event.

There's really only a small handful - what? 10, maybe fewer - of sites that feature him on a regular basis and in a significant way. So when fan want to scream something from the top of their lungs, they just cut and paste at the same handful of sites.

This tweet is a snap of a Rolling Stone article saying HR will be out May 13 in the US.

301 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-13 22:02 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>300 YES! FINALLY! Been dying to see this one!

On the subject of THEO and the clickbait articles, there's going to be many more like this for the next few months. This shit is gonna go down in a glorious fiery blaze and the fans are going to rip each other apart over it. The haters, the shippers, and the Hiddlestoners. It is going to be wince worthy. Riot gear anyone?

>>301 Yeah, I say let those two crazy kids get on with whatever they've got going on! The sightings, pics, DM articles (please, Lord, yes!), joint interviews, awkward/cozy red carpet events and TH (I'm about the work!) Facebook posts are going to be grist for the mill here and elsewhere in the TH-verse.

And in between we get TNM, HR and ISTL (yeah, I'll go just to see the car crash of it all).

Onward and upwards, THEO!

303 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-13 23:38 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>302 Don't forget another cringe worthy pap walk!

I'm not gonna watch ISTL. It didn't appeal to me from the beginning. Maybe The Night Manager but I'll settle for some sexy GIFs. But High Rise I will watch rewatch and buy the DVD!

304 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-14 00:46 ID:YO42PGlY

Same for me about ISTL. I never intended to see it in the theater, but then between the bad reviews and all the THEO stupidity I have no desire to see it at all. I'm definitely watching TNM, and probably High Rise at least when it's out on DVD.

As far as Celebitchy is concerned, their "journalism" has really taken a hard nosedive in the last year or so. They've always been a gossip site but they at least used to try to be legit in some way. Now it's all ridiculous clickbait articles and misleading headlines. I'm not even going to address the comment sections.

Oh, and anyone would look pregnant in that dress EO was wearing yesterday. Do I think she did it on purpose? Absolutely.

305 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-14 05:35 ID:SKuCBz5r

I always thought Celebitchy deliberately writes their gossip that way, because it's CeleBITCHY.

Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleston's individual online hits must have definitely gone up tremendously since the gossip sites picked up on the JVR pic and then her appearance at Stella McCartney's last night. That is if their reps are keeping track of trivial things like that.

306 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-14 07:25 ID:Heaven

>>304 yeah, difficult to wtach the film without thinking about the rest. Actually it makes you wonder why would TH keep trying to focus people on the film IF he is doing all these not-so-secret appearances with EO everywhere.

307 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-14 07:33 ID:Heaven

here's a little video of Eo at Stella's fashion show at minute 1.50 something. Just a few seconds really.

here's another gossip something website that reposted the cllage photo

here are photos of EO at the event, both official and from paps, I think she might have done something at her face, like fillers, but don't trust me.

someone at CB says 2 nights ago EO as at a nightclub. I couldn't find anything mentioned on any EO's fansites.

I am so, so sad to hear this news. I have loved Alan Rickman since I saw him in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves (setting the scene for many, many years of rooting for snake-hipped English bad guys in black wigs and swirly cloaks). His work gave me great happiness as a child, a teenager and an adult - there aren't many actors of whom I can say that :(

>>311 >>312

I don't know if she has had a nose job. I think she might just have a significantly different nose from that of her sisters - their noses seems to be wider than hers, but the angle is the same. Pics of her from before her acting career (there's one with HS yearbook shots of The Avengers cast floating around) suggest it's the same. So, if she did have one, it would have needed to be when she was in her teens.

I think she looks different in these recent shots because she is werking it hard! I mean, she is really posing in some of these shots.

However, talk of her nose reminds me of a comment on an article about the ISTL trailer - maybe it was on Dlisted or JustJared. The person said that she was excited to watch the movie but wasn't exited about 'watching EO act from the tip of her damn nose. Why has she got her head tipped so far back in every scene?'

I hadn't noticed it until this comment, but her nose is pitched upwards throughout the whole trailer! Maybe this is her 'hard nosed wife' look.

319 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-14 17:06 ID:Heaven

>>318 Don't know, I saw photos from 3,4 years ago and the nose looked different but whatever, I wasn't trying to shade her, I was just baffled as to why someone already so pretty and so young would feel the need to do something to her face.

And now for some shade!

The DM - my online paper of choice! - was ALL OVER the Stella event. They had a big general article about the event. They also had individual articles/videos on some of the 'big names.'

So, people who got their own article/video: Kate Hudson, Amber Heard, Johnny Dep's daughter, Emilia Clark, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Katy Perry, Kate Upton, Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Richie, Joanne Froggart (the maid from Downton), Kieran Shipka (the daughter from Mad Men), Selma Blair, and your third cousin's cat.

>>323 she didn't get her own section? GASP! Who does a girl have to bang to up her DM creds? What were they thinking not covering her!

But on a serious note, is Elizabeth Olsen even that famous on her own? I only heard of her because of the MMMM movie and then heard about her again during Godzilla promos and then the Avengers. Is she really very famous and I've been living under a rock all this time?

I am hoping and praying this is good. The two BBC series of the George Smiley novels were so brilliant that this has a lot to live up to in my mind. Have you seen them? They are a master class in how to do a le Carré novel in 6 episodes.

330 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-15 15:23 ID:Heaven

>>329 No! I watched the films based on his novels but not those, I'll try to find them. My hunch after watching the trailer, it might not do so well in the US - but there's always the rest of the world.

331 Name: Anon : 2016-01-15 17:34 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>330 Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Smiley's people are both on iTunes. TTSS is much, much better than the film - the plot is too complex for 2 hours and anyway Alec Guinness knocks spots off Gary Oldman. But Smiley's People is even better (you really have to watch TTSS first for the context).

332 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-15 19:45 ID:SKuCBz5r

The trailer looks amazing. I wasn't into The Night Manager at all but after watching the trailer, I'm actually looking forward to it! I thought it would have a very outdated wanna be Bond kind of feel and who knows it still might but because of the trailer, I'm willing to give it a go.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Actually I should say that a rumoured job she was already linked to has been confirmed with a different co-star.
Last year in May there was the news she was to star in Wind River with Chris Pine, now it's Renner. Filming starts in March.

341 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-16 07:55 ID:YO42PGlY

>>339 Highly unlikely IMO. She seems to be the one who does all the visiting, even when he's not working. Wonder if the rumors about EO and Renner will resurface when they're filming together. I know he denied them last time it came up, but as we've seen nobody cares about denials.

But I don't think he wears the same thing to confuse people - he did it in New York for the CP promo when there was no need to confuse anyone (he wore those black jeans and blue serge shirt about 3 days running). I think he does it because he is a bit hopeless on the clothes front!

Seriously, he is a bit daft with the old "I support feminism" thing. He spent ages droning on about this at Nuffield I am told. My friend who went and reported back said rather waspishly that it was unforgivably dull because totally uninformative. Is any male celebrity really going to say no, I support oppresssion of women, sex trafficking and FGM? The real question is not whether they express support for feminism, but whether they actually do anything about that other than wear a t shirt.

PS In his Guinea field diary he confessed he had never heard of FGM prior to the trip. For a then 32 year old, Cambridge educated, Guardian reading man, I found this shockingly ignorant.

Good god! I come back after a weekend away and oh my gawd oh my gawd...he is a thing of beauty right there! Thank you Ben Wheatley. Thank you!

Frankly I didn't think Crimson Peak itself was very feminist. It peeved me that they had two strong female characters but they pitted them against one another and over the love of a man who wants to be good in the end but the woman kills him. I see this kind of "feminism" in young adult books a lot and it bothers me that when a female character is strong, she's put up against another female and it's usually over winning the love of the guy or because they both love the same guy.
You want to tell a story about a deranged abused pair of siblings who are murderous and who make a prey out of unsuspecting young women? Okay go ahead. But don't call it feminist friendly just because the female lead is clothed in the sex scene and gets to be on top. I didn't like Crimson Peak at all and this one of the many reasons why. I hate this kind of superficial "feminism". It's like the fluff kind of feminism that people do so men don't get offended because you don't show how it's the patriarchal control that's created the misogyny in our world.

>>385 I had forgotten about the Bechdel test! I remember it being dismissed by a fair few mainstream critics because it was 'championed' by a lesbian - and a cartoonist at that.

Hmmmmm, I wonder how many of TH's movies would pass?

Or how many of Miss "He for She"'s movies?

>>387 In fairness, I think most unsavory aspects of life would shock him. He's very worldly in some ways (education/travel), and very sheltered/inexperienced in others (the nitty and gritty of life). Just look at his twitter experience - most people would have been more guarded, less trusting, knowing that not all people are inherently good-intentioned. Not TH, he happily opened himself up like a tin of baked beans for all to see.

It's part of his charm, but it's also gotten him into trouble. But he is learning; he's certainly more guarded and thoughtful now.

And, in his defense, I must admit that I only learned about FGM from a Law and Order episode when I was about 15/16. It wasn't something that came up in my AP Euro History course!

Australian Open tennis has just started ... finals weekend in 2 weeks. Wonder if JVR will give Tom the day (or two) off...

393 Name: Anon : 2016-01-19 14:25 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>391 Yes, but the point is you did learn about it because it is not infrequently discussed in the media, whether in a tv show or in factual articles. There isn't a mainstream newspaper in the UK that hasn't run an article about it, and the Guardian, his favoured paper, has run several in recent years. It is also regularly raised as a major issue by several charities and women's pressure groups.

Maybe all this passed him by - nobody knows everything. But I'd expect someone who is smart and well-read AND claims to be a feminist to have learned about it without a charity-funded trip abroad. It makes me question how informed he is about other women's issues.

Comic gift. Yeah, okay, TH. Lord know CH hasn't got a gift for most other acting genres. If you think about it, CH is a movie star because of Thor, so essentially he's a movie star because he's tall, blonde and able to acquire muscle mass quickly and efficiently.

I think he is naive in many ways. At Nuffield he was apparently spouting a load of utter crap about access to the arts and saying it was easier to get into the arts from a poor background than my line of business (law). Actually the Social Mobility Foundation's latest report on access to the professions said that the law was by far the most open of the professions in the UK. He does tend to rush in where angels fear to tread.

WHAT? Was there a Scarf-Face before PurseGate? And that Scarf-Face was JA?

No, I don't believe it. I don't! Everyone must have misheard JA and misinterpreted her actions. She probably said, 'Are you filming me, because if so, I fucking want a copy of that shit for my TH scrapbook!' Then, rather than cover her face, she probably made the universal sign for giving a blowjob and then pointed at TH.

Interview with Corey Hawkins, this was 2 weeks ago, here's the bit about Skull.

"Okay. Have you met King Kong, and if so, what is he like?

[Laughs.] I can’t! I can’t say anything about that. I mean, I will say that it’s different from anything you’ve seen, and it’s such a good cast. It’s such an unbelievably good cast! I mean, when you think about it… Sam Jackson, John C. Reilly, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Jason Mitchell, Jon Ortiz, it just goes on and on and on.

All I’ll say is that this movie is going to be something that I think a lot of people… it’s going to be special. It’s just going to be special and it’s going to be fun. It’s going to be exciting. It’s going to take you back to sort of old filmmaking era, you know? That’s what it feels like making this movie. I mean we’re shooting at all these different locations. We’re stealing a little shooting right now. It’s going to be a wild, wild ride, and I love my character. I love my character."

Mind you, they can always save it - and ensure box office success - with a single line from TH's character: I'm going to have to find this magical youth potion naked.

It seems as if John Goodman has a small part; he was only spotted in HI and seemed to only be there for a few weeks.

And what about Toby Kebbell? He was announced in trade papers as being part of the cast and it's on his IMDB, but neither hide nor hair of him. Maybe he'll show up in Vietnam.

Skull: article in Vietnamese that gives dates about when they will wrap up in Australia and start filming in Vietnam

The short version, if you don't feel like using google translate is:
"Looks like "Skull Island" will wrap Australia around Feb. 18th/19th to head to Hanoi for the last month of filming. "
https://twitter. com/reeltourshawaii/status/689893171036291073

""Kong: Skull Island" prep is working hard to get things ready for filming to begin in Vietnam on Feb. 27th."

"Kong films in Vietnam 2/27 - 3/15"

There's also an article in English with less details about dates

423 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-21 07:40 ID:Heaven

This is longer than expected and makes the promotion for TH a bit difficult.

424 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-21 07:44 ID:Heaven

>>417 I hope so for them, moving production to so many locations for so much time is probably costing a fortune. The budget for advertising and promoting this film will make the total amount even higher, so they'll need a huge box office success to just break even.

425 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-21 17:22 ID:3f866YLl

>>423 Another source said filming would be until the end of March. Either way, one would assume that TH - as a key character - will be filming right up until the end of production or very close to it.

Remember when Sony said they were pushing back the release date for ISTL because TH couldn't promote it in Nov., i.d., it got arse fucked by critics? Well, that cover's blown as It sounds like he'll only have a week or so for US promotion in March - if it happens at all.

I wonder if they'll do additional promo for the supposed re-release in Nov.

427 Name: Anon : 2016-01-21 19:23 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>425 yes! I remember us discussing this at the time. Isn't it also going up against quite a few big releases in March? I still think they should have let it be a charming imperfect little word of mouth movie. Unfortunately it was marketed with a lot of words from Somebody's rather big mouth. "I put my soul into this movie." No. Be quiet.

428 Name: Anon : 2016-01-21 19:31 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>426 I suppose it depends on how much rehearsal she has for her new project and how much publicity she needs to do for the latest Avengers snooze-fest. I have little idea about how much time these things actually occupy. It is an article of the TH nanny faith that he is always incredibly busy, and that when we don't see him for months he is giving interviews or doing endless photo shoots or researching his next project. I have a sneaking suspicion that actors do a lot less between projects than people think and that there is quite a lot of mooching around not doing very much. So we may see EO visiting Oz for a birthday shag...!

This was in the days before he was really into manscaping so I doubt he had it straightened then. It may be easier to make it straight when it is a bit longer, as now.

It's not the makeup. It's called melasma.

476 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-24 00:18 ID:SKuCBz5r

It's not melasma. Makeup for photo and film should take care of that and even out the skin tone. I've noticed that whenever Tom gets his makeup done by Amanda Grossman, his face is a darker tone than his neck. She tries to "bronze" him up. But when he hires another makeup artist, he never has this uneven makeup problem. When he was doing his CP promo and then was in San Sebastián for HR, his makeup was so much better. When I checked, sure enough he had another lady, Sally something doing his makeup.

477 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-24 01:32 ID:5qEt5bUn

>>475 >>476 I think you both - all three? - may be right.

This seems to have been taken post HI filming, so he's had some pretty strong sun exposure. He's tan, but also appears to have some slight reddish brown patches (melasma) on his forehead - you can see spots of his usual, more pinkish skin scattered above his eye and near his hairline.

So, I maybe the people doing his make-up matched it to the darker, tanned skin of his face. It seems his neck didn't get as much sun exposure - which happens when you're 'working' in the sun and not lying on a beach or sun bed. His costume probably had a collar which covered his neck.

Or, which seems more likely given the unevenness, they might not have used any make-up at all and we're seeing the natural difference between his neck and face skin. Perhaps this is a preview pic and they're going to 'clean it up' in post and that's what we'll see on the actual cover. I think the original came from the picture editor - or am I making that up? Maybe he pushed the original, non-photoshopped pic.

Christ, we need another EO sighting - this post is way too long to be taking about TH's make-up. I only have myself to blame!!

PS - Three people had to push open the front door of my apartment building because there were 12 inches of snow in front of it. My neighbor saw me leaving for the store (we stocked up on food but not toilet paper!!) and offered me his snow shoes because most of the sidewalks hadn't been cleared this morning. They worked a treat - leg workout done!

>>477 oh god that's horrible! I live in SoCal and wish I could send some sun your way but unfortunately you'd get the drought with it too!

We need more photos of Tom in holey shirts! With EO's eye peeking out from one of the holes. She's going to show up in Oz just you guys watch! But we'll get confirmation much later. Either photographic or slip of the tongue from a reliable source. Like Bora Bora and JVR's IG fiasco. I don't think EO is done with TH by a long shot. And maybe neither is he ;)

>>477 Can't tell you how many times I wished I had snow shoes when I lived near NYC.

Thank you for the explanation-I know nothing about melasma. I have noticed the pink areas on his forehead, and assumed it was from scars.

480 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-24 03:19 ID:YXAaaoN7

I think Tom has some sun damage on his forehead, and his hairline has receded just a bit since it happened so the skin looks splotchy sometimes. I do agree >>477 that the difference in color between his face and neck in that photo is probably due to tanning while filming.

As far as EO showing up in Australia is concerned, I think it's more likely that Tom will fly to LA between Oz and Vietnam for some ISTL promotion, and they'll be spotted together then. Or "spotted" together. If it happens at all. But yes >>478, more holey shirts please.

>>478 This is my first NYC Snowmageddon. I missed the one in 2010. It's nice. The city's strange and beautiful when all the people are off the streets!

>>479 Some are scars, but the spots are - I think - the areas not affected by the very low-grade melasma (which is just darkening of the skin due to sun damage). You can really see the sun damage in the HR hi-def pic. Look at his face compared to his neck and his body. Mind you, wouldn't kick him out of bed for it.

>>487 Yeah, I don't think they're done with each other either. Whatever they've got, it seems to be working for them, so I expect it will continue.

482 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-24 04:02 ID:ij5z+1do

>>480 I wonder when they're going to get in ISTL promo.

There were about three weeks between HI and Oz filming, but I think a great deal of that was for the holiday.

I wonder if there will be a similarly lengthy break between Oz and Vietnam. If there is, you may be right and they'll meet up in LA for promo and bonking - ahhh, Hollywood!

Perhaps they did the majority of the promo in Nashville - we've already seen some pics and interviews from that time.

483 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-24 05:11 ID:oap8SbtM

The observer article is already floating around: Torrilla, twitter, tumblr.

It seems to be an ISTL piece, complete with a pic of the couple.

He is charming and delightful throughout, but then we expected that.

484 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-24 05:26 ID:5qEt5bUn

>>483 ...with a good dose of TNM as well.

485 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-24 06:33 ID:YXAaaoN7

>>483 Charming and delightful! And of course, he paid for the interviewer's meal. Ever the gentleman.

I enjoyed how EO was labeled "ISTL co-star" in the photo.

486 Name: Anon : 2016-01-24 08:05 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>483 >>485 The interview mentions ISTL but the strap line at the bottom is "TNM starts on BBC1 in February" so I infer he was doing the interview at the behest of the BBC not as part of his contractual obligations for ISTL. I wonder how much more publicity he will actually do for ISTL. I mean, they had the premiere in Nashville and a lot of promo then. Interviewers are probably holding back material from TIFF or maybe from earlier - a lot of the promo material for CP was from on set interviews.

487 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-24 08:06 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>485 I particularly enjoyed that costar bit too.

Overall, the interview was like deja vu. All about his Eton and Cambridge background and his privilege, and all redundant basic info about his upcoming ISTL and TNM, and how Tom always reads for research, for both work and interviews. Can't these guys ask better questions or does staring directly into Tom's baby blues short circuit everyone's brains?

488 Name: Anon : 2016-01-24 08:16 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>483 Interview was done at the restaurant where he was filmed by the fangirls between Christmas and New Year.

I thought it was so sad when he was talking about being sent to boarding school. He is too loyal to his parents to say but he pretty obviously hated it. Boarding school is still common here from age 12 but you have to be a pretty dysfunctional parent to send your child away at 7 if you don't absolutely need to (eg diplomatic service). His parents lived in Oxford and the boarding school they sent him to was in Oxford! I could not live knowing my child was 2 or 3 miles away and was unhappy.

More generally he didn't sound like his usual carefree self. Somewhat bristly. Not (dare I say) very loved up.

489 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-24 08:16 ID:YXAaaoN7

>>487 At least we learned a new nickname for Tom - I think we should all call him "Uncle Yay Monster" from now on.

490 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-24 08:20 ID:Heaven

>>486 and the twitter follow of this journalist happened recently, so I think the interview took place between HI and Oz.

491 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-24 08:22 ID:Heaven

>>488 I thought the same, that's why when people read he was with a woman he was firting I tend to think: "interview".

492 Name: Anon : 2016-01-24 08:26 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>490 We can date it precisely - see >>488. There is a bottle with the name "Côte" on the table in the screenshot from the fangirl video of him in the restaurant. It was taken on 03.01.16.

493 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-24 08:29 ID:Heaven

>>492 I wasn't at the point in the interview where she mentioned the name of the place where they were eating but yeah, Jan 3rd.

494 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-24 08:34 ID:YXAaaoN7

I actually think it was a different occasion - the journalist mentions he was wearing a gray t-shirt, but his shirt he was wearing in the video at Côte was definitely white (I'm almost positive, anyway). The restaurant is near his home, he's probably there often.

495 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-24 08:39 ID:Heaven

>>494 Was it? I could only watch the video once so I don't remember really. So Côte wll become the new G&W for delusional fans?

496 Name: Anon : 2016-01-24 08:42 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>494 Here is the screencap:

It's white but kind of grubby looking! Restaurant is about a 15 minute walk from his house, past a lot of other much closer and more discreet places (Côte is a chain and has a lot of tables squeezed in. Exactly the sort of place you'd go I you wanted a fangirl to photograph you).

497 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-24 08:45 ID:YXAaaoN7

>>496 Thanks, I knew there was a screencap out there somewhere.

498 Name: Anon : 2016-01-24 08:48 ID:bgcXLLLp

I read the interview again and I despair slightly. She says they talked about Graham Greene and Plato, and yet she devoted nearly a page to telling everyone how he followed her first on Twitter. It is lengthy but strangely uninformative. What would you make of it if you had never heard of him and were reading it for the first time?

499 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-24 08:57 ID:Heaven

>>498 it's not on par with the ElleUK's but yes the journalist didn't press too much, so the result is bland. But that's a common theme, even in this interview in the end you don't end up with much

500 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-24 09:06 ID:YXAaaoN7

>>499 I get the feeling Tom does more research for some of these interviews than the journalists themselves - if they don't do enough reading up on Tom beforehand they won't even realize they're asking all the same questions and putting all the same information in an article for the hundredth time.

501 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-24 14:11 ID:oap8SbtM

>>486 I would imagine it was for the BBC, given that it's in the Observer. I do wonder however, since it is fairly ISTL heavy (several paragraphs and pics), if he/Luke/Sony/BBC (whoever else), are trying to kill two birds with one interview.

502 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-24 14:16 ID:oap8SbtM

>>492 >>495 >>496 I wonder if he took her there because it is a chain restaurant. That is, it's not a place he usually goes to, so if he meets a journalist there and she mentions it/people see him there, and the fans start to show up, they'll only ever see him there infrequently.

I wonder if another interviewer will mention his white t-shirt, i.d., from the other time he was spotted there.

We know he's a creature of habit: same clothes, same cafe for his FWB, same restaurant for his journalists!

503 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-24 14:27 ID:oap8SbtM

So, I can't tell, did he go to Eton and earn a double first?

In all seriousness (I know - on this board!), I have a journalist friend (I think Anon does as we, so maybe she can back me up on this point!).

Our conversation was about minor politicians, but the same may go for minor celebs like TH. I asked her why so much info is recycled in profiles of certain politicians. She said that journalists are meant to gauge the knowledge of the average reader and give background info for the article's subject based on that analysis.

Now, we all know the basics on TH, but the average Observer reader might not. I think she was just covering her bases.

However, it would have been nice to hear his thoughts about Plato! You can so tell he's a Plato guy and not an Aristotle guy - you can always spot the difference.

504 Name: Anon : 2016-01-24 14:32 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>502 That was kind of what I meant. It isn't the place you would go if you wanted a quiet lunch by yourself or with friends. It's usually heaving.

505 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-24 14:51 ID:oap8SbtM

>>488 I wonder when his family moved to Oxford, because I thought at one point he said they lived in the Cotswolds. Some one will remember if that's correct.

I know the Cotswolds are close to Oxford, but perhaps they were there when he started school and the commute was too off he went.

That having been said - you're right, 7 is too young to be away from parents. I'm sure that's how PMs are made, but it's just as likely to harm. I remember Winston Churchill writing about wanting hugs from his mother and having to get them from matron.

I think the little 7-year-old living inside TH needs a hug.

506 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-24 15:02 ID:oap8SbtM

>>488 I wonder if he was bristly (you're right, it did seem that way) because of the twitter comments. She said that after he followed her, she was deluged by fan messages. By the way, his response to his fans' behavior was hi-larry-us! Shaking his head politely (and probably bashfully!).

If the journalist was contacted by fans, perhaps he was worried that the fans mentioned - and then she would ask about - the subject that dare not speak its name: his private life (and a certain 'co-star'). Please don't ask about EO, please don't ask about EO.

I hope the next time someone asks about his relationship status, his answer is: Jane and I are very happy. Thank you.

507 Name: Anon : 2016-01-24 15:07 ID:DSzKRbid

>>505 If the commute is too far you send your kid to the local village school - and the Cotswolds are so moneyed the state primary schools will probably be more than fine (lots of involved parents). Or you home school.

Just a personal view. I know one person whose parents sent him to boarding school at 4 (jeez) and he is nuts. I think it does real harm before adolescence. I thought that was the one revealing part of the interview. Sniff. I know what you mean about the hug. I think it explains a lot about his friendly but distant demeanour and about what we see of his relationships.

508 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-24 15:28 ID:SKuCBz5r

I must be really cynical then because I thought it was a nice touch mentioning the boarding school and neglected childhood bit as a way to get sympathy on the whole posh boy angle that the reporter kept prodding him with. It bothered him because he does say clearly that yes inequality exists but how about we not hold me alone as somehow the sole instigator of it.

Overall, it did sound like a recycled copy paste interview with more acidic emphasis on the "Tom the actor is a posh boy, just like the rest of em posh boy actors flooding the market." Maybe that's why he was bristly in the interview.

509 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-24 15:50 ID:oap8SbtM

>>508 Never feel bad for being cynical - we like them that way around here.

And, sure, boarding school at such a young age probably did affect him in a not-completely-healthy way, but he survived. We all survived the dodgy choices our parents made when trying to do right by us. My mother feathered my hair (but w/ a lovely, long mullet) when I was 6 - it was disastrous, several years of school photos were ruined, and it earned me the nickname (which stuck until senior year) Big Bird (because my hair actually looked like Big Bird's!). I know I was sent away to summer camp (under the pretense that 'it was good for me') for two months every year. I hated it, and hated my parents for doing it. Yet, I'm in a stable, loving relationship, I've never been arrested, I'm able to function in the world (though not when there's a new foot of snow outside).

All in all, the little tyke turned out just fine.

I do wonder, however, when he's going to snap re: the class question. He's been asked it so many times - and given his stock answer so many times. Some journalist may get the Freddie Page OMG treatment at some point.

510 Name: Anon : 2016-01-24 15:50 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>508 I didn't read it that way. The interviewer asked him about what kind of child he was and then if that changed when he went to boarding school. So he didn't bring it up in response to the questions about access to the arts.

I do have some sympathy with him on the issue though. He isn't the sole instigator of it. He has also used the opportunities he had to get into a very tough university, took a top degree, got into Rada (where the annual intake is minimal) and became a success when 99% of actors do not. At some point hat success has to be because he is good and not because it was handed to him on a plate. To me the unforgivable thing is having those opportunities and not taking advantage of them.

511 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-24 15:56 ID:oap8SbtM

>>507 I think for his parents - his father especially, given his background - the best education would trump most other factors. Moneyed and involved parents aside, they probably thought Dragon was a much better choice than the local primary.

512 Name: Anon : 2016-01-24 15:58 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>511 I am sure they did what they believed was right. The eternal conundrum of private education is that people who went to state schools and became financially successful want to put their kids in private school, even though they succeeded without it.

513 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-24 16:03 ID:oap8SbtM

>>510 And can we talk about inauthenticity!

What kind of child were you? Quiet and playful. LIES. He was probably a monster, a curly haired monster. Quick-minded children usually are - they're skilled at conjuring up naughtiness and getting away with it.

514 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-24 16:14 ID:SKuCBz5r

It starts off with him a jab of "it's certainly working well for him" and follows up with how he started boarding school at seven and went to Eton followed by another jab of all the big Brit actors certainly seem to be Eton or Harrow and then you get the whole class inequality thing from Tom after which the reporter seems to get a bit soft hearted and ask if going to boarding school affected him as a child.

Honestly I don't feel much sympathy for him. He's doing well for himself. Sure he didn't have a perfectly happy childhood but lots of people come from either dysfunctional families or have divorced parents or some sort of neglected childhood that have been worse than his and they turn out fine. He went to a good school, got a good education and has a successful career of his choice, and he went through all of that with no lacking for basic needs like food or a place to live. His relationship with his parents seems fine too with how he talks about his mom and how his father wanted him to choose a more financially stable profession. Who hasn't here argued with their parent about their career choice at one point or another in life? I'm sure the divorce is still a sore spot for him like most of us with divorced parents do but I don't necessarily pity him and I really hope he doesn't pity himself either.

As far as his relationship status goes, no one can answer that except for himself. Maybe he's the unconventional type who's not big on monogamy or maybe he's so focused on making A list at the moment that he doesn't have the time to invest in a relationship and would rather work on himself. Or he's just a late bloomer. I've honestly never read or watched a Tom interview and thought he's so lonely and sad or some sort of sob story. He's always struck me as a driven ambitious guy who knows he's very lucky and he's availing that luck to the best of his abilities.

515 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-24 16:17 ID:SKuCBz5r

So, the Irish Examiner - not a rag by any means - went with this headline from the Observer article: "Eton educated Tom Hiddleston says class debate in acting is 'socially divisive'"

The edit of the article is all boarding school and posh actors. Ugh.

517 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-24 16:36 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>516 and now we know why Tom was bristly in his Observer interview. The way he went on the inequality and social class thing, I'm sure that reporter kept poking and prodding him about it and we just read Tom's polite way of snapping. I doubt she's going to put down what jab of hers finally provoked that response, of course. He's too British to Freddy Mercury snap but I believe we read him snapping at the class thing in The Observer.

518 Name: Anon : 2016-01-24 16:38 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>517 "Too British" ? Something of a stereotype. Unfortunately the British are as rude and aggressive as people of any other nationality. If TH is too polite to tell a reporter where to stick it that's down to him and not his nationality.

521 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-24 17:08 ID:Wo9w1lsj

>>520 True. And he's always been the non confrontational type so I don't think he's ever going to tell any reporter to back off with the class and posh questions.

522 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-01-25 07:02 ID:u1vu1eqv

Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi on how he’s changing things up

[...] “But that’s what I’m going to really concentrate on, really make an effort to change the entire thing,” he continued. “For me, I want to treat this as if it was the first Thor film, so we’re going to redo it. You just have to flip it and freshen it up, like anything. It’s also part of a very well-established universe right now, but that’s why they got me.”

He told us he’s not worrying too much about what comes before or after his movie either.

“This is the cool thing is that anything goes in these early stages, ideas-wise. We really are in the early stages,”

The recording studio is in LA. Don't know if he's there now, or this was when he was there pre-Christmas or post-New Year.

Anonsy is usually good at picture analysis.

525 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-25 23:43 ID:YO42PGlY

>>524 Well, based on the kid's Instagram, it seems like he usually posts his pictures right away. And Tom's hair looks like it looked in the holey shirt fan selfies a couple days ago... so I'm going to go with new. Second guess would be when he was in LA for the AMC event right before heading out to Oz.

526 Name: anonymous : 2016-01-26 06:33 ID:o9F1chVg


I think he is back in Oz today. JVR posted an insta-piccy of Australia Day (today) showing a tall, skinny dude wearing something that to be frank, only an Englishman would be seen wearing in a classy joint like the Gold Coast.

Having said that, long weekends are the norm this week (Monday off to bridge the Tuesday Aussie Day holiday) so perhaps Tom went over to LA over the weekend and is .. back.

527 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-26 06:36 ID:YO42PGlY

528 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-26 06:58 ID:YO42PGlY

>>527 Just looked again... only tall person in the pics is John C. Reilly, unless JVR took pics down. If Tom is back in Oz already he's probably sleeping off the jet lag.

529 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-26 07:04 ID:Heaven

>>528 the photo is this I suppose but he doesn't seem Reilly to me, Reilly isn't so slim at the waist, but I don't think it's TH, it's Olyy's BFF.

>>534 Someone on tumblr said the recording studio works with AMC, so he's likely doing commercial voiceovers for the Night Manager.

536 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-26 07:34 ID:Heaven

>>534 apparentely that studio is specialize din voice over work, so it could be commercials for TNM, but it would make more sense for this to have happened during the AMC's TCA week. Not matter how long the weekend, it's still a hell of a flight just for some studio recording.

So going from this post (you need to be logged to tumblr to see it) which I don't get since there was no bashing just a heads up of a possible danger, I think this bbs got too known at this point, so as far as I'm concerned I'll go on posting news (unless I decide to stop entirely), but in general I suggest you guys be careful because, as I said before, any new poster can be a troll.

I found you guys through a Hiddleston tumblr so this board is more well known than you think.

>>545 I found the board through a Google search; for what, I can't even remember. More recently I wondered how visible we were and searched for "TH messageboard" and a few other things and it didn't come up. I know we have maybe one person who posts here and on CB and I think a good few more lurkers from CB. There were some striking similarities between one or two of our comments on Sunday on the Observer article and CB's yesterday.

>>548 Did you Google search "The JArthy, FWB Queen of our Hearts" because I'm pretty sure that would lead you to this board and nowhere else. ;)

I've been here for a long time... I was one of the original DataLounge rejects. I'd found DL through a Google search for something Tom-related, it was so long ago I don't remember what. Then everything on DL went crazy, someone started a thread on this board and linked to it on DL, and now here we are.

550 Name: anonymous1 : 2016-01-26 09:09 ID:EHp/Uo80

I found this blog through google and I'm one of the lurkers tried to post here twice i hope this one goes.

>>534 I dont see any mystery. Perhaps it was possible to do it now and impossible to do it before or later, and we know that Tom is workaholic so that explains everything. BTW the cropped out person is another kid.

>>536 bingo, exactly. This studio works for AMC so Tom was there for TNM voice overs. And yes it is rather possible that the kid posted the photo just now and its back from TCA pannel days as well. The hair looks the same to me, it heavily depends on light.

>>535 no its Thomas Mann. If you click on that photo you will see tags that were made mt JVR. Simple as it is.

551 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-26 09:13 ID:4ODRAm/5

>>550 Ah thanks, Instagram is the one social network I'm hopeless at navigating - I didn't even see the tags. In any case, it's not Tom in the pics which is all that matters.

>>549 I remember you saying that DL moaned about there being too many TH threads! I like it here because there are only a few of us and we know or get to know each other quickly - and because as NewAnon said it's not too serious. Combined of course with crazy flight of fancy speculation about the Jarthy etc!!

>>551 you're welcome.

But it doesnt mean Tom isnt in Oz by now or actually never left it since he arrived in January. I just compared the photo from that kid and TCA pannel Tom and it looks the same to me - just different t-shirt. Wasn't he in L.A for two or three days? Or we dismiss the fact that he changes his clothes X) And I will even go deeper, the kid posted photo on isntagram and only 11 hours later on twitter. Plus, two days ago Olly was in OZ - he posted a photo of lighting and there was storm where they were ( again, if we dismiss the fact that Olly isnt following him around all the time) .

Plus ( the most interesting detail to me) Tom is usually seen by fans, at least once on arrival/departure and often papped. Nothing like that this time. No tweet, no post, no photo. All specualtions, of course.

I wish the kid could say the time when it was taken.

Also, we're a smart group. Most of us are educated cookies who know how to find info AND analyze it. Couch should be working for Google with her links (maybe she is!). Anonsy should be looking at pictures for the CIA (maybe she is!).

I'd never been on twitter or IG before PurgeGate and joining this board, now I work those mothers like they're databases.

So, I'm not too surprised a few people are lurking here and reposting/submitting are finds/links, etc.

The 'exuse me' and 'wtf.' The capitalization of 'IF.' Also, the tone is very her, isn't it. Plus, as others on here have noted, she takes her show all over the cyber-place, desperate for someone to see the light (pun!) and agree with her.

When I arrived in the UK, I got a welcome pack that included a pamphlet with The Green Code Man - is that right? It was all about crossing the street, using zebra crossing points. I'd just come from living in Boston where jaywalking is enshrined in the Constitution, so I threw the pamphlet away thinking, I am an Ameri-CAN and I CAN cross wherever I damn well please. You don't own these 13 colonies anymore, Blightly. And then I nearly became a hood (bonnet) ornament on Shaftesbury Ave. I quickly became a zebra crossing devotee.

Frankly, I'll be glad to see Tom finally done with Loki. Its time for people to see just how much hotter the blond Tom is than the greasy inky haired Loki. Also I am so sick of Tom saying Loki is misunderstood and of Loki fans making excuses about Loki murdering people on earth. Goodbye Loki. It's been real. It's been fun. Just hasn't been real fun.

This was from 2011. Sure, there's been some retreat (he's a man of a certain age - it's going to happen), but not all the follicles are in flight. Some sweet curls to fill in the bare space would be a good thing.

The practice tells me if 99 out of 100 dont care if they saw him, there is always this 1 who will tweet and make everybody know they saw him. Unless it was a very short visit and he slipped in and slipped out unnoticed.

I can't really say just by hair and clothes, but like someone said (you?) it is/was National holiday in Oz, that he might have gone to LA for business it's fairly possible and that kid seems to post as soon as things happen, so let's go with the easiest explanation: very short business trip.

588 Name: anonymous1 : 2016-01-27 12:54 ID:vGyhc7qs

Ok nothing special but it might be interesting since we know that Tom's twitter is work-related for 99%.

I just noticed he followed Tobias Menzies https://twitter. com/TobiasMenzies . Couple of days ago he wasnt following him for sure. I dont know who he is but looks like a theatre actor. In Almeida. ( isn't Tom's ex Susannah actress in that theatre btw?) Can that mean that we have to expect more theatre work since its getting obvious Loki will have a smaller part in Thor?

And a side question: what do we know about this Richard II project? I was sure the director of that project said at TIFF its in progress.

589 Name: Anon : 2016-01-27 13:10 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>588 Tobias Menzies is in TNM which may explain the follow. IMDB says all 6 episodes so TH presumably did come across him in filming.

The Almeida isn't a repertory theatre where actors join the company and appear in a range of productions. The Royal Shakespeare Company does run like that but most London theatres don't. They just gather a group of actors for one production. SF may have appeared in a particular production at the Almeida and so may Toby Menzies but whether together or not I don't know.

The R2 rumour has been around for ages. It is James Ivory directing (of Merchant Ivory fame). He has been going on about this project for ages (for example here, dated Feb 15 - says TH but never as far as I am aware confirmed by TH I slightly get the impression Ivory thinks that if he says it often enough TH will magically be cast!

590 Name: Anon : 2016-01-27 13:15 ID:bgcXLLLp

And here is JI claiming that Richard II would be filming after TH's three movies after Coriolanus. We are now some way beyond that juncture, and it hasn't happened. I guess one of two things: there was no actual commitment, or there was an agreement to do it but some problem with funding meaning it has been kicked into the long grass:

591 Name: anonymous1 : 2016-01-27 13:18 ID:Oy8bc0nP

>>589 thank you. I just looked at his twitter and seems like he is in some kind of production now. It is strange that Tom followed this guy right now but not when they started filming or at some stage.

I get it now about Richard II. It's sad, I always thought Tom is a classiccaly trained actor and his place is in theatre and in movies like High Rise, not some Hollywood crap like Marvel or I Saw The Light or Skull Island.

Thank for information X)

592 Name: anonymous1 : 2016-01-27 13:22 ID:Oy8bc0nP

>>590 Three movies: CP, ISTL, TNM. But did he know back then about SI? Perpahs the Skull Island appeared suddenly and wasnt expected by Tom or James Ivory? I rely on the latest interview that surfaced during TIFF where he still was positive about that project.

593 Name: Anon : 2016-01-27 13:34 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>592 I think that TH confirmed he was doing SI some time second half of 2014 when according to JI he had already agreed to do R2. I doubt he would have accepted SI if he had already committed to R2 - unless R2 had some issue that meant it was put back, hence my speculation about funding issues.

It's not on his public IMDb - someone said fairly recently they could check his professional one and I have a feeling that it was not on that either.

594 Name: Anon : 2016-01-27 13:41 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>591 PS he is a bit weird with his Twitter. He followed some New Orleans goth girl in about March 2015 who I think I worked out was a makeup artiste on ISTL - it is odd to follow someone like that after the production at a time when you will probably never see them again.

He also posted a farewell Bowie pic and didn't say a word about the death of Alan Rickman a few days later, despite all the imitations he did of him (!!). He seems to be a creature of mood when it comes to Twitter.

595 Name: anon1 : 2016-01-27 14:11 ID:s/pIh3Nv

I was surprised to see that EO did not fly to Paris to attend the Dior fashion show on January 25. TH being in LA at the same time might be the explanation.

596 Name: anonymous1 : 2016-01-27 14:16 ID:Oy8bc0nP

>>595 actually there can be a lot of explanations. We dont know if he stayed in L.A and we even don't know if the photo is recent. But as Couch and I think - it was a very short visit and he is in Oz by now.

As for EO - she is getting ready for her upcoming movie - that can be the most logical explanation.

I was expecting something like >>595 to appear, I hope it won't awake the dark forces X)

597 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-27 14:20 ID:M0umnEXT

>>586 Couch, I won't have this reasonable explanation, I just won't.

Here's the real truth of why he went to LA...from one of my sources.

EO is late...late late. TH flew to LA to be with her when she peed on the stick. Yep, it's twins! Congratulations! But he needed to get back to Oz because the crew were planning another trip to the mall and he didn't want to miss it. So, he stopped off at a recording studio to record a song - especially written by himself - as a Valentine's Day gift to EO and his unborn twins.

This is from my sources. So, it is totes true.

Actually, and I can't do the research at the moment, but did her sisters' 'fashion label' - yeah, I'm putting that in quotes because of reasons - have a show in Paris? I think she tends to rock up when her sisters are showing, i.d., they pay her way and bag other invites for her.

And I wonder if she sat front row at the last Dior she showed up at. No way she's a front rower at Dior.

607 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-27 14:34 ID:Heaven

>>595 Fashion week isn't over yet. Anyway, EO can't decide to attend a fashion show, generally it's the brand that sends invitation, and pays - though big names are likely to get one if they ask and her sisters certainly help. And they don't always invite the same name, unless that particular celeb is linked to the brand.

As for the possible explanation of her maybe absence, kind of a moot point, don't you think? There's no way of knowing for sure so there isn't much we can say.

611 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-27 17:37 ID:SKuCBz5r

Well considering how Lizzie darling follows Tom everywhere, I can see her skipping out on a fashion show to spend time with him. But more likely, it might she's prepping for her new movie. They start filming in March so she should be prepping for it.

Even if they did meet up while he was here for that short amount, they probably didn't leave the bed LOL ;)

612 Name: anon1 : 2016-01-27 19:16 ID:s/pIh3Nv

614 Name: Anon. : 2016-01-27 19:46 ID:M0umnEXT

>>612 >>613 I'll agree. If he was in LA - for work, most likely - and had time to see her, and if she was there with time on her hands, I'd say they probably did see each other.

And if he let her know of his schedule in advance, she might well have turned down invites to some shows to see him. Most of us would in a similar situation.

There are a lot of ifs in the scenario, but it's all plausible.

615 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-27 19:47 ID:Heaven

I look at the new pic Torrilla just posted and think He is just so well put together. Just so fucking beautifully put together.

When you look at some people, you think That person is working his tits off to look that good. Gym sessions, trainers, only Chia seed water and salads made from vegetables grown in the mountains of Tibet.

Sure, he runs and works out, but I think TH also drinks and smokes and eats carbs and refined sugar AND his body still looks like sin.

I hate him.

>>620 And you call yourself a fan!! You have to download the soundtrack, and you have to go see the movie 4 times. And you most definitely have to tweet him with heart eye emojis and Oscar statue emojis and tell him he's the best actor EVER.

That's how this game works.

623 Name: anonsy : 2016-01-27 21:51 ID:YO42PGlY

>>621 I think about that sometimes, with all his talk of cake and puddings and pictures taken at Five Guys, and then I want to smack him. Maybe that dance he does all the time has magical fat-burning properties. I would add it to my workout routine, but I don't like looking ridiculous.

Back on a slightly old topic, I had a thought about that boy's Instagram photo - what if the photo originally belonged to the kid who's been cropped out, and he/she just got it to the boy who posted it on Instagram? He does seem to post his photos right away, but the captions on all his other pics are "TODAY I did this" or "YESTERDAY I went here." The caption on the one with Tom leaves the date vague, only saying that Tom was at the recording studio with him. The pic being on his friend's camera would explain a delay in posting, meaning it could be from two weeks ago when we know Tom was in LA.

624 Name: Anon : 2016-01-27 22:18 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>623 Now that is a very sensible suggestion. Of course nobody knows anything, but I do sometimes wonder about using that fandom staple, Globe Trotting Tom, to explain every anomalous sighting on Twitter or wherever, when some must be mistaken or bogus. We know he sometimes does long haul trips for short stays (eg Evenng Standard awards Nov 14) but the idea that he flew back from Oz to LA for a couple of days presupposes an almost preternatural stupidity on the part of his diary manager (OK, it is Olly here so anything is possible). He was in LA to promote TNM about 3 weeks earlier and nobody said, oh, we have some voice work to do while you're here? And instead he waits till his doubtless much needed national holiday long weekend off, and instead of another ride on an angry bird gets to spend a total of 30 hours on the plane (I looked it up - evidently I can contrary to my previous wailings....!!)

625 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-28 07:14 ID:Heaven

>>623 >>624 indeed you are both very right, and what you said Anon was what I wrote at first, that it made more sense to have done this during the TCA weekend. But there is so much confirmation bias floating around about him and EO that of late I don't have the energy to keep pointing out everything that doesn't make sense.

>>612 I dont want to sound pretencious but are you serious? Really? >>614 and you too?

>>615 Since I'm new here I might not have a saying, but it seems I'm the only one that believes that Tom and Liz arent dating. I can believe they hooked up, but that could happen only because Tom went too much method X) ( he addmited this himself he was too emerged in Hank's world) and Liz could take his passion for real. I can totally believe they were FWBs for a while and she ran around the globe to chase him and try to get something but I can also totally believe that Hawaii journey wasnt arranged by Tom, nor she was invited by Tom and by all evidences I read online she wasnt staying there for long. Let's be honest the only prove we have is the photo from JVR IG, and it tells me she got there for a weekend, and then went back to L.A to give out some awards. I won't mention the weddings spent apart, Thanksgiving and months apart - I think it was said here before me. It also seems to me that fans were demanding the explanation and when they got it, they stayed unsatisfied because that wasnt what they wanted to hear. Asking " What is going on between you two" they meant " Tell us you are dating" and when they got
"We are just friends" the denial suddenly became so "fishy" for some.

>>624 and >>623 Little guy replied btw.
" aidenlewandowski@kirsip_ Yes he was there for Night Manager...Im working on a different project. "
This proves that Couch Potato and I were right - that was indeed very short buisness trip and since they were back on filming yesterday - this explains everything. Little guy didnt say when it was taken though. Despite he was asked X)

Lex, in my line of business there's a saying that the cover up is always worse than the original wrongdoing. Same applies to you. You came on here and pissed a few people off by being abusive. Since then you have come on here under half a dozen different names and what you've said hasn't always been that bad. You subscribe to a number of theories about THEO that I don't share, but that's the nature of Internet message boards. What is seriously pissing people off now is the cover up. Please have the balls to post as yourself and let others on here decide whether to engage with you or not, rather than trying to pull the wool over our collective eyes - which only ever works for a short period.

Skull Island is really shaping up to be one hell of an expensive movie. Just like Crimson Peak. I hope the writing and plot execution is better in Skull Island though. I want to see Tom petting and being cuddly with Kong! Or just a gorilla. I just wanna see him with a fan running about a jungle studying weird animals and being cuddly boo boo with them lol

Lex could be using a proxy and that's why her IP keeps changing rapidly and every time she posts. What other aliases does Lex have? Cabbage Anon, FireBrenie...are those all?

This morning I got distracted, clearly, and forgot to add that I think the schedule given by in this news >>646 makes much more sense than this one >>422 and it's more or less what the Australian media had also reported, that the shooting in Oz will last till the end of Jan and then move to Vietnam.

665 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-28 14:54 ID:Heaven

>>654 Speaking of numbers, the Vietnamese website says the production budget is US$190 million, more than Thor2, Guardian of the Galaxy, Jurassic World, but little less than The Avengers, and they are likely to spend as much for promotion. A very high bar for a film about a giant gorilla in the '70s.

I'll post links to a few interesting comments from an old TH's thread at CB (they do happen sometimes), the poster was explaining how it works with budget for promo and how nobody can't say CP didn't bomb.
first, second, third

666 Name: Anon : 2016-01-28 15:14 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>665 CP only looks like it didn't bomb if you pretend the producers spent nought pounds nought pee on marketing. That movie was marketed to death. All those attendances at SDCC and the like.

Maybe it will make some back on the dvd rights? I recall the posts Anon. made about it not having been released in China although the subject matter would be very popular there. They have certainly added some good extras for the dvd from what I can see, to try and make it worth buying.

667 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-28 15:22 ID:Heaven

>>666 The bluray is certainly appealing, good job in that sense, but going by that poster's explanation, if a film bombs at the theatre "it takes at least two years on average for a film to start generating revenue for the license owner".

668 Name: Anon : 2016-01-28 15:31 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>667 Yes, I saw that. I didn't mean it would suddenly break even now, more that the blu ray might start the ball rolling. I think the poster said most movies break even eventually - I guess through a sort of slow burn purchases and tv rights and so on.

This bit was interesting, it's Abrahams talking:

“There were moments when we would argue, and I knew that what we were arguing about wasn’t what we were arguing about. I think it was a delay tactic,” the director said with a laugh. “He is such a perfectionist. I don’t like to do a lot of takes. The most takes we did on this film was 11. But Tom would do 400 if he could. We would still be making this movie if it was up to Tom.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Jessica Chastain has broken her rule about not dating actors for Tom Hiddleston once before, and now the newly single actor, 34, is asking Chastain to do it once more after reuniting on-screen for Crimson Peak.

“Tom realized what a mistake he made,” a source tells Star. “He’s been hitting Jessica up ever since, saying that she’s the one who got away and begging for a second chance.”

The only problem? Hiddleston is looking for love in all the wrong places. Since their split in early 2013, Jessica has happily moved on Italian fashion executive Gian Luca Passi di Preposulo, who was none too pleased to hear that Tom was back in the picture.

“She tried to let Tom down gently because they really are such good friend… but I think she secretly liked that Gian Luca got a little jealous.”

from here

682 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-29 12:53 ID:Heaven

It's utter rubbish obviously, at that birthday party for Jessica her Italian boyfriend was present, there's a photo of the three of them (which CB made a post about btw) and JC denied those 2013 rumours the day after they were published. So, yeah CB wanted clicks.

683 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-29 12:55 ID:Heaven

But - wearing the conspiracy hat for a moment - what it's really interesting is that for the second time Star has an article about TH where they are shading him. (the first is of course the Nov. issue about him dumping EO)

Outside the comic crowd, TH isn't so popular in the US, so it hardly makes sense for Star to use him to sell copies. The fact that the narrative is about him going after a woman who is in a serious relationship sounds familiar.

684 Name: Anon : 2016-01-29 12:56 ID:bgcXLLLp


Whoa nelly!

Didn't JC deny she had ever dated TH after, er, Star magazine and others made up rumours?! Which Star now uses as the jump off for the article!! I must say getting into the world of gossip mags since joining this fandom has been an eye-opener. If I knew nothing much about TH, I'd just think, oh ok they went out with each other.

685 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-29 12:57 ID:Heaven

Let me add that JC was already dating her Italian boyfriend in...2012 I think, and they have just spent NYE together, so this article is about TH.

686 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-29 12:59 ID:Heaven

>>684 it was an eye-opener for me as well, how they are even allowed to publish is beyond me.

687 Name: Anon : 2016-01-29 13:10 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>686 I see the link goes through to CB - which says "we all know it is not true but MAYBE". Laughable. Someone pointed out that CP is just about to come out on DVD....I did admire the refreshing cynicism of that observation!!!

688 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-29 13:16 ID:Heaven

>>687 Some of them said as much when Star published the Nov. article just before the ISTL trailer. However, having an article published to promote his work, where for the second time he comes off as a douche defies credulity.

689 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-29 14:24 ID:SKuCBz5r

Is Tom ignoring Lizzie and not returning her calls? Is this Star article her revenge since one of his movies DVDs just came out? And it's the same movie that had everyone gushing about how absolutely gorgeous Hiddles and Chastain were looking together on the red carpet? So much so that Lizzie darling copied Chastain's body language and personality for the ISTL Nashville premiere in a cheap imitation and ended up looking cringe worthy instead with all that seagull flapping on stage?

Yes I'm shading hard. Yes I believe EO's team did this one. Tom's team wouldn't do a gossip piece like this. This one is slamming him and making him look ridiculous. An Olsen knows how to play dirty games like this.

690 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-29 14:33 ID:Heaven

>>690 Fresh off the heels of Tom ending whatever they had and maybe finding Tom flirting with his pretty cast mates and ignoring her was too much.

The Star article shades Jessica Chastain at the end too by making it sound like she was using Tom to make her bf jealous.

Maybe EO tried to hook it up again and left a voicemail saying "hey Tahm! I'm gonna be in Oz for a few days so let's celebrate our bdays together! Yay bdays! We could go see tennis together. You love tennis. I love tennis! Yay tennis! Or we could go see a play. You like plays right? We can do whatever you want except read a book because OMG yawnfest! Lol jk you can read to me. K call me! Miss you!" And he texted back "got vm, will ttyl" but then he just started ghosting her and now she's taking it to the tabloids again to show her displeasure. Pissy Lizzie strikes again!

That crazy unbalanced moron just stole all our responses! I'd get angry but it's too hilarious! I'd say she stalks Tom but obviously she doesn't if she's looking to message boards about TH for validation and verification about her crazy notions.

She says she likes Jess but I'm sure if Tom and Jess were to date, she'd be losing her marbles over that too.

The past week has reminded me why I unfollowed in the first place. Tumblr fandom is kind of insane and very few people ever make any sense, so I mostly just end up feeling really annoyed, and it's a waste of time to try and reason with anyone. So I quit. It felt good.

711 Name: Anon : 2016-01-31 08:31 ID:bgcXLLLp

Anyway he wasn't at the SAG awards last night (Brie was). I am sure he could score tickets at a lot of these things if he wanted (see the Daily Mail's piece on all the women's dreadful dresses - there are some real nonentities attending). The allure of a weekend in LA is not that strong.

That CB post was terrible, I stopped reading the comments the second time I found a red herring, it's a list of logic fallacies.

720 Name: Anon : 2016-01-31 14:54 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>719 Tends to support the theory that the JArthy was indeed introduced to Lorraine as GF. I vaguely recall that at the time she had to eat dirt and withdraw the tweet or say she had made a mistake or something. Before my time - others will remember!

721 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-31 15:03 ID:Heaven

>>720 Considering what happened after, I think either it was her assumption or she meant girlfriend as girl-friend, which was what was written in that ELLEUK interview months later.

722 Name: Anon : 2016-01-31 15:05 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>721 That was what I originally assumed but since she now says "secret girlfriend" I think she is trying to get out there that she was right.

723 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-31 15:09 ID:Heaven

>>722 If that were the case, then TH saying there was "nothing home to write about" first was offensive, but most of all saying very clearly that he was single in that Evening Standard interview (the one with the ducks) was not only a lie but taking his own fans for idiots.
Which is why I wrote that Lorraine did it again, the moron.

724 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-31 15:15 ID:Heaven

>>722 There's also the list of event where she wasn't present, like the Olivier Award - big thing to miss if you are a gf. Or TH having fun with girls at the Crimson Peak wrap-up party 2 weeks before BB. I mean if Lorrain was correct, it doesn't make him look like a nice guy, in the least.

725 Name: Anon : 2016-01-31 15:22 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>723 Hmm, well JA was seen with TH 3x after the "nothing to write home about" incident: once meeting him outside the Donmar after a performance, once in the BFI bookshop when that fan filmed them, and at Bora Bora. That to me says they were in some kind of relationship during that time.

726 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-31 15:26 ID:Heaven

>>725 I'm guessing that Donmar you refer to is the photo of him walking and there a blond lady on his left? That was Lorraine. This is one of the echo chamber of the time, like the one about Lara Pulver going with him on a date the day after Wimbledon to divert attention from JA.

Sure there was some kind of relationship, but gf is the one that is certainly off the table, goodness the woman was dumped right after BB.

727 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-31 15:27 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>719 Thanks! Strange the link doesn't work on my phone for some reason.

She did the hashtag troll lol is she trying to stir the hornet's nest?

If Jane was really a girlfriend then wow he treated her pretty bad publicly. Pretending to be single, calling her nothing to write home about. I'm surprised he would hide a girlfriend though. Then again Lorraine and Jane are friends so maybe trolling TH's fanbase is a favorite pastime whether she was really a gf or not lol

728 Name: Anon : 2016-01-31 15:28 ID:bgcXLLLp

Here they are - some screen caps from the BFI video and the pic at the bottom is taken very near the Donmar. Some fans suggested this was a journalist (of course!) but it was taken after a performance - a bit of an odd time to meet a journo, and also the height, the hair and the body shape are right to be the JArthy.

729 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-31 15:31 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>726 the lady outside Donmar turned out to be Annabel Brog, the one who did his ELLE interview.

Considering how many of the ELLE ladies are Jane's friends, I have no idea whether she was really Tom's gf or someone trying very hard to make the world believe she was when it was all casual.

730 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-31 15:38 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>728 the BFI one is Jane but one fan on tumblr lonelledon did a whole investigative thing and found it was Annabel Brog because she found a pic of her in the exact same outfit as that Donmar one. Down to the handbag. Astonishing what these girls can uncover. Unless Jane has the same outfit. Which is possible!

Either way, if she was a gf then it shows Tom is a terrible boyfriend.

731 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-31 15:39 ID:Heaven

>>728 Yes that's the photo I meant, no that wasn't JA, it was Lorraine. JA's hair at the time wasn't like that.

Here's the link to that photo with a bigger resolution

732 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-31 15:39 ID:Heaven

>>729 yes not Lorrain, Annabel Brog.

734 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-31 15:54 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>733 LOL! They're all Jane's bestie's so you know they're all Tom fangirls anyways. Probably how he got that ELLE spread. As a makeup sorry for "accidentally" tweeting about girlfriend Jane.

735 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-31 16:05 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>724 maybe that's the point? To show he's not a nice guy everyone thinks he is? That he's an uncouth cad who broke darling Jane's heart and took away her honor! That scoundrel!
For the record, I don't think she was a gf. But I think she tried very hard to be one or at least appear as one.

736 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-31 16:14 ID:Heaven

>>734 They even went as far as claiming that it was because of Annabel that he decided to do ISTL link

Do you remember how it was found out they were JA's bestie's? I remember there was a mutual acquaintance between TH and JA, some woman that is an expert about health, but nothing about the ELLE.

737 Name: Anon : 2016-01-31 16:21 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>730 I only ever heard of it being Lorraine - if you google her, when her hair was longer it was ash blonde and straight so it could never have been her.

Even so, when TH was saying he was single or his love life was nothing to write home about he was hanging around with JA - in what capacity who knows, but as a long-term something. Assuming we only see the tip of the iceberg, he is spotted around with so few people that to be spotted with her on several occasions suggests to me that they were together a lot more in private. I don't blame him for lying in a way, when you see what happens to the crazies as soon as he gets a GF.

738 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-31 16:37 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>736 I don't know how others found out but I found vacation pics and group outing pics on IG of Jane and some of the ELLE women. This was before Jane got her own account there. There is also Edith Bowman who was a mutual acquaintance but probably more Jane's friend. I say that because after the nothing to write home about interview came out, Edith deleted Tom's TIFF pics from her IG, even though she was interviewing him in them. She used to tweet back n forth with Tom too but hasn't in a long while.

>>737 probably a convenient FWB. I'm sure she made herself easily available to him whenever possible. Just like how EO does by flying everywhere to see him. I don't think he'd ever lie about an actual girlfriend. He knows the crazies wont do anything. They'll still watch his movies and buy anything of his while spitting venom online on their screens about his girlfriend. Like the town bike blog.

739 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-31 17:01 ID:Heaven

>>738 I didn't know about Edith Bowman being a mutual friend too, the one I remembered was another one, at the radio with Olivia Coleman in May she spoke well of him. Not that she would speak badly of him on the radio.

740 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-01-31 17:41 ID:u1vu1eqv

>>739 I remember a pic showing up on tumblr of TH chatting with Edith outside the G and W. So much time has passed that I can't recall if it was during the Coriolanus run (early 2014) or early 2015.
>>707 True, could also hop over to visit his older sister and niece in India.
>>711 A year ago I know he was hoping he would be there last night for the sag awards for ISTL or CP. Poor guy, but not his fault.

741 Name: NewAnon : 2016-01-31 17:59 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>739 the one where she called him a tall happy lovely puppy? Yeah that was Edith Bowman interviewing her. Edi posed with Tom for pics at the WhatsOnStage awards so public facing its all nice it seems. Deleting his pics from TIFF from her IG seemed odd to me( mind you she was gushin over him in the caption about how charming and handsome and lovely he is) until I figured out the friendship and nothing to write home about timing. Could be a different reason altogether but I feel like it may have to do with Jane because Edi kept all her other pics from that TIFF.
All the Tom and Jane connections and Jane and ELLE connections were much easier to find before she deleted all her social media and made everything private. I didn't bother remembering a lot of these women's names figuring I could find them later if necessary but I didn't expect Jane to delete her Twitter like that. It was work related ffs.

"Does the franchise need Loki?

Tom Hiddleston’s Loki has become an integral part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Some might argue that the character is just as essential to this particular franchise as Chris Hemsworth’s Thor.

"He's such a big part of it,” Waititi reflected, when asked for his take. “And he's such a great part of it. My focus really is making sure that Thor is the best character, though.”

Waititi laughed when I mentioned that many felt that hasn’t quite been achieved yet, and said, “Yeah, well that is my goal! Because he's got to be. And it should be that way."

Speaking of TH schedule, a little reminder that tomorrow are the Evening Standard British Film Awards, for which he has a nomination as Best Actor (if memory serves).

Going by his PA's instagram, they were still in Oz this week, so if there's filming planned for Monday, I don't think he will fly all the way to London. On the other hand, they might take a week break before starting in Vietnam on the 18th, especially Brie since she has BAFTA next weekend.

>>777 I feel for him, I really do. He picked three interesting and varied projects for 2014 and none of them quite came off. HR will presumably be eligible for BAFTA, Oscars etc this coming year though, due to the March release date.

It may be that ironically TNM and the BBC will make him a truly household name here and in the States - as tv shows did for so many over the last decade or so, eg John Hamm, Damian Lewis and earlier people like Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Laurie. It really is where so much creativity has been in recent years.

779 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-02-07 13:13 ID:Heaven

>>778 It's surprising that he didn't, HR is in the shortlist as best film but not a single actor/actress is, strange.

I don't expect HR to make it to the Oscar, after what happened this year the Academy will stay away from a film about classism full of white British dudes.

My personal trainer, who has a body like Chris Evans, doesn't gain that kind of muscle mass in a year, and he gains muscle mass easily.

>>792 I'm going to say that he did appear to gain something for the Thor audition. It happened during the break between the 1st and 2nd seasons of Wallander, and the change in his body between the two seasons was visibly obvious. You can't tell if it was as much as 20 lbs, but his shoulders and chest were broader, and his butt/thighs larger.

It was not that Coriolanus level of noticeable bulk (or so it appeared - I didn't see the play in person).

>>776 Here I am! :)

>>793 I'd say Coriolanus was the only time we've ever seen him really bulked up. Since he seems to be someone who has a hard time putting weight on, I've wondered what kind of fitness and diet regimen he must have been on for Coriolanus. He had to be eating a ton of protein and lifting for hours every day, or at least lifting really heavy.

(Happy birthday, Tom!)

>>793 Here's a youku video from torrilla of the trailer:

>>793 >>794 I do actually have a small anecdote about the Thor audition. A friend of mine worked with someone who knew him. The someone was married to Emma H's best friend. The someone attended a BBQ shortly before the audition. TH spent the whole party showing everyone his new muscles and saying "have I got bigger? Have I got bigger?" Apparently the biceps rivalled a sparrow's kneecap in size....bless.

I suppose before Coriolanus he wasn't working on set for ages so he had time to bulk up. Before TNM he lost a lot of weight for ISTL then had to gain it back in Jan-Feb for filming in March. Bit of a tall order especially for someone who is naturally skinny.

>>822 I guess if he's not been nominated and he is on the other side of the world it's a long trip back. Has filming finished in Oz? Maybe he will come home to the UK if he has a few weeks off, but there are a lot of island paradises on the way from Australia to Vietnam, and I know what I'd do faced with the choice! Bali with EO! (Just kidding - but Bali alone would still be amazing).

824 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-02-11 13:31 ID:Heaven

>>823 I read Brie was in LA the other day, but she has an Oscar campaign to run so it's a bit different.
I agree that it's a long trip considering he has no nomination and filming in Vietnam starts on the 18th for actors, but he also has 3 products to promote and BAFTA is his turf, so if he was asked to present an award he might use the little break for that.

Slightly off topic, but I did laugh when I recently came across this, on the topic of whether one should tweet one's celebrity sightings. The comedian Robert Webb's response to being tagged in the usual moronic "I just saw @[celebrity]" tweet was hilarious.

My current area of north west London is quite village-y and full of slebs but you can go for years without seeing any of them even though they mostly seem quite normal and probably do their own shopping and walk out to get a coffee (eg Emma Thompson). To see one particular person every day you would need to be a genuine stalker, i.e. do what nw3 criticized all the fsngirls for - sit in G&W all day waiting for him to appear.

My husband located the Observer magazine interview and read it rather grumpily, pointing out that he has a double first in classics from Oxford ("a much better university than Cambridge") and is taller. His permitted celebrity crush is Rosie Huntingdon Whiteley who is so unlike me in every conceivable respect that I find it funny. The problem with my crush is that there are too many similarities!! Men are funny creatures.

A friend of mine went to the Nuffield q&a last year and said she was the only woman in her thirties more or less - all the rest were 20 year old emo/goth/geek girls - or grandmas! With one or two sad-looking spotty geek boys, each following a love object who was completely oblivious and thought the boy was just a cool really supportive friend who liked Marvel.

>>850 I'm just going to say that I also had buttons with my picture on them at one of my birthday parties...I was ten and my mother thought it would be a good idea. What's your excuse, TH?

I bet Olly thought they would be the perfect gift for his boss. Or they might use the extras as a diversion tactic: if they're being chased by fangirls, Olly will throw a load of TH buttons on the ground and when the girls stop to pick them up, TH and Olly will make their escape.

Smart thinking, Olly.

855 Name: anonsy : 2016-02-12 22:15 ID:YO42PGlY

>>852 It'll be more of the same. My predictions for ISTL Premiere Week:

  1. Everyone on the internet asking "are they or aren't they" regardless of what either of them say or have said in the past
  2. Journalists referencing the "rumored" relationship in the intros of their interview write ups
  3. People on tumblr posting kpopstarz articles as though they were fact
  4. Over-analyzation of body language
  5. At least one photo caption that mistakenly labels them a couple
  6. At least two completely disprovable Twitter sightings
  7. Tom will bring up the quote about Hank being the "hillbilly Shakespeare"

I highly doubt this would happen, but the total long-shot that I'd love to see would be EO walking the red carpet with Marc Abraham as a couple. Wouldn't THAT be a riot?

856 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-12 22:32 ID:6D1UQBWs

>>855 I'd like all three to walk the red carpet as a polyamorous trio. THAT would blow away the winter blues.

Failing a - as the French would say, House of Three - I'd like THEO to come out as a couple - just so I could read the tumblr/twitter/gossip mag taglines:

"She's not hiding behind a purse NOW: TH proudly shows off his new girlfriend EO."


"She's something to write home about: EO steps out with boyfriend TH."

And because the Lex meltdown would be epic (I know, I'm a monster).

JVR is playing it safe and being vague after the instagram post debacle a few weeks ago. He has adopted a 'chaotic neutral' stance when someone asks him about Tom. See this post: http://insanely-smart(.)tumblr(.)com/post/139046691643/hey-guys-look-beaglebitch

875 Name: NewAnon : 2016-02-13 09:43 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>874 No, that's the Tumblr being idiots and trolls again. JVR never replied "chaotic neutral" to anyone. His bio on Twitter says Chaotic Neutral. Go check. I don't know who did that copy paste job in that image but you can clearly see the verified check mark next to JVR's name in the image which shows it's not a tweet but the bio header on Twitter.

I'm waiting on pics of Tom for his birthday bash! Did he dance til he was so sweaty that his t-shirt became see thru?!? Karaoke videos of Tom!!! Tom eating his Kong cake!

876 Name: anonsy : 2016-02-13 10:10 ID:YO42PGlY

>>874 >>875 Nobody was trolling. Insanely-smart tweeted JVR about Tom and he favorited the tweet, so it's a like and not a reply. Twitter app just shows the bios under the usernames when someone favorites something. No photoshop, just an unclear app interface.

And I'm with you NewAnon, who do we have to pay to get video of Tom singing karaoke? We could use the credit card number the spammer keeps posting!

877 Name: NewAnon : 2016-02-13 14:13 ID:SKuCBz5r

>>876 gotcha! In any case, JVR certainly isn't evading any Tom related stuff if he's favoriting tweets about him then. Just Elizabeth Olsen related stuff :P

I'm still wishin' and hopin' and thinkin' and prayin' for those pics and videos of Tom singing and dancing! Even a pic of Tom eating his own cake figurine would work!

A couple of people unrelated to the fandom videoed the fireworks during the party. It appears it was a joint bday and Australia wrap party before they move on to VN in two weeks; THEO speculation has started up again since she's been spotted in Cali and the cast has a couple of weeks off. :/

TH will be on Steve Wright's BBC2 Radio show Tuesday Feb. 16 talking about TNM, so he may be headed home. Is this show usually interview live with in-house guests or does he do interviews by phone or pre-recording?

879 Name: Anon : 2016-02-13 21:16 ID:bgcXLLLp

889 Name: anonsy : 2016-02-14 09:37 ID:dGY2h7yk

We should just start crossing things off the "if ______ happens, that will be telling" list:

If Tom attends EO's sister's wedding - didn't happen
If EO attends Tom's sister's wedding - didn't happen
If they spend the holidays together - didn't happen
If she flies out to Oz - didn't happen
If they spend Tom's birthday together - didn't happen
If they spend Valentine's Day together - not looking like it
If they spend her birthday together - doubt this as well
If they spend the break together - they didn't spend the last break together so I'm calling this highly unlikely as well

I think whatever was going on ended in November when she flew out to Hawaii.

>>889 Yes.

If I had money, and time on my hands for a vacation, and a hot boyfriend who was a 14 hour plane ride away celebrating a significant birthday, I know what I would do. It would not involve hanging out with a female friend and posing for sappy photos on a beach while looking out to sea.

891 Name: anon1 : 2016-02-14 10:14 ID:s/pIh3Nv

>>889 Actually, they did spend the last break together. They were seen in LA together in December (date brunch) and she was spotted in London on NYE.

892 Name: anonsy : 2016-02-14 10:21 ID:dGY2h7yk

>>891 Both of those were one-off sightings on Twitter with no proof.

As for the December brunch, Brie Larson did an interview where she mentioned having lunch with Tom in LA the day the guy on Twitter thought he saw him with EO, so that was likely mistaken identity.

If EO was indeed in London on NYE - again, only one person claimed to see her on the tube, of all places - she wasn't with Tom. He was seen all over London alone on NYE, New Years Day, and the day after. There were multiple Twitter sightings confirming this, including ones with photo and video.

893 Name: anon1 : 2016-02-14 10:30 ID:s/pIh3Nv

The only source for the Brie Larson interview came from an anon on a tumblr blog full of THEO speculation and trolling. So the twitter sighting seems way more trustworthy imo.

There were zero sightings of Tom on NYE and NYD.

894 Name: anon1 : 2016-02-14 10:46 ID:s/pIh3Nv

Besides, Brie is still dating Alex Greenwald. So I doubt that something that looked like a date could have been a case of mistaken identity.

895 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-02-14 10:47 ID:Heaven

>>893 and the only sources for your sightings are just as unreliable, actually even more so since they are completely illogical. So, going by what we have proof for, while you are entitled to your wrong opinion, it's still just an opinion.

They seem to be convenient hookups for each other rather than a serious couple. She seems a little more eager because of how she's always flying to wherever to meet him whereas he was only spotted with her during a layover. Not sure if they met up while he did the TCA in Pasadena but if they did, again it was while he was already in town for business. He doesn't seem to go out of his way to see her.

So even if they are spotted together for her birthday, for me it'll still be a case of her being more into him than vice versa since he had this big party and she was still in LA (pic on IG with a hairdresser the day of the party or maybe before but either way definitely not in Oz).

If she mattered to him beyond a convenient lay, he would've invited her to his party and she'd be there. She's already visited him once on set, she could've done it again if he wanted her around. He probably started ignoring her after the JVR pic debacle and she got pissed and leaked the tabloid about Tom pining for Jessica to get back at him LOL!

I had a little Google for an updated BAFTA list and there isn't one yet. Still what was posted on 11.02.

900 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-14 15:00 ID:efLsAACg

>>889 I like this list, anonsy, it's sensible and reasonable - and I just like lists.

But it assumes that they're in a serious relationship (weddings, major holidays) which (because of time and distance) doesn't seem to be the case. We've all see-sawed on this issue, but I think most of us agreed it is/was casual - for lack of other more specific qualifiers.

And it doesn't fit TH's MO. I came into the fandom after JA (oh, the regrets!) but like any decent researcher, I looked back into the annals of the fandom. I read the old threads here and at LSA and the other board at which I lurk. And right-thinking people were making these same lists and comments about TH and JA: It's over because: he didn't take her to Wim. this year, he didn't take her to the BAFTAs, they weren't seen doing this or that. And then Bora Bora.

We were even doing this before IGate or JVRGate: they were so cold at TIFF, they didn't walk the carpet together in Nashville, that one sighting in HI was from a fangirl who deleted it, the other sightings were from attention-seekers and were fake too - it must be over. And then Bora Bora 2.0ish.

I like trying to predict the future with sensible analysis of facts and situations - that's part of my job. But this guy and his relationships defy that process. Until we have irrefutable proof, I think we just have to go with bold-faced speculation and plain gut-feelings.

901 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-14 15:02 ID:efLsAACg

>>893 anon1 is right. As far as I know - there were no sightings - photographic or on social media - of TH on NYE or NYD. The only sighting was from that Saturday when he showed up alone at the Donmar.

902 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-14 15:11 ID:efLsAACg

>>893 >>894 >>895 >>896 (that might be a reference record for me!)

In the end, it is all competing twitter sightings/anon tumblr submits. No video or interview has come out of Brie saying that she had lunch with TH on that day. Nor did the guy snap a pic of THEO at brunch. So it's a toss up of which story a person wants to believe.

I think that it was THEO that the twitter guy saw. I think that they probably did spend time before Christmas together. I believe the EO sighting in London less - don't know why.

I also think that they probably still have something going (which isn't serious, but isn't PR driven). But that's my gut-feeling.

903 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-14 15:17 ID:efLsAACg

>>887 I can see this sort of situation, if only because I've done it before.

We're engaged, but I spent Christmas with my family and the boy spent it with his. Since we were apart, we did Christmas when we were back together.

I've also celebrated birthdays and holidays either before or after the fact because I couldn't be with my SO on that day. And it wasn't necessarily because of money - just distance and circumstance. We couldn't be together, so we celebrated off schedule.

904 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-14 15:27 ID:efLsAACg

Now, on to more important matters: Valentine's Day plans?

My valentine actually has the evening off (unheard of for a resident - I didn't even ask how he wrangled it), so our plans involve salsa dancing, food and sex. Not necessarily in that order - and maybe not separate. ;)

TH's plan, pure speculation, probably includes: a kangaroo plush toy, a bed not covered in flowers, but in leftover birthday buttons, a skype call and his right hand.

905 Name: Anon : 2016-02-14 15:34 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>900 We know from experience that TH's love life is like an iceberg. We see the odd peak above the water (Wimbledon, Bora Bora), and I have always assumed that there is another 90% below the surface, unseen by twitter etc. Even if TH didn't regard his relationship with JA as a long term meet the parents thing, Bora Bora wasn't their third date - he must have been seeing her more than sporadically for a while. It was just that nobody spotted them as it was probably all behind closed doors - he very evidently doesn't fancy the scrutiny that a BAFTA/Oliviers date would bring. All that LSA speculation failed to take into account that he is a very private person and quite adept at keeping his private life under the radar.

What I think is interesting and different about the last couple of months is that Instagram has shown us a lot more of the 90%. I don't recall Instagram being so prevalent back in JArthy days (summer 2013) - or maybe he hung around with people who were more circumspect on social media. The Skull Island crowd really aren't so discreet, so we see where he is and who he is hanging out with. We can triangulate that with other people's Instagram so we know broadly where EO is as well. In Feb 2014 God knows who he spent his birthday with - no evidence. This year we know he had a big party and we also know his most recent GF/FWB/unspecified wasn't there.

906 Name: Anon : 2016-02-14 15:45 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>904 sounds fun - and very New York!

We went out for coffee and heart shaped Valentine challah (only in multicultural Hampstead!). I gave him a mug emblazoned with "Trophy Husband", which he was delighted with, and he presented me with hyacinths and tulips, which made me feel as though Spring is coming even though it is howling a gale outside. Our plans for this evenig include homemade steak and ale pie, cuddling on the sofa in front of the wood burning stove and sex.

907 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-14 15:56 ID:efLsAACg

>>905 From what I can tell from old posts, Twitter was the IG of the TH and JA relationship. People used twitter to make assumptions about whether they were together. When he unfollowed her, 'well, they're done.' When she liked TH related tweets, 'they're together' or 'they're over and she's desperate to win him back.' He tweeted this, so 'he must be alone' (what? okay.).

Along with IG, TH needs to wage a war against photo booths. Or just never go in one ever again. The flirty Crimson Peak wrap party pics had everyone convinced JA was out of the picture. And the laser tag photo booth gave us IGate.

908 Name: Anon : 2016-02-14 15:58 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>903 I get that and I've done it myself, but I am not sure EO's schedule or distance or what have you prevented her from being at his birthday. She isn't short of a bob or two, the flight from LA to Oz is a lot shorter than, say, the flight from London to Oz, and she isn't working. However she chose to spend that day vacationing with a friend. I do agree that there is something going on - I don't know why but something about him says "not single" - but it starts to feel even more casual than I thought it was before. Is he winding down to a bye bye Bora Bora trip? This petering out of a casual thing is also a TH repeat.

909 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-14 16:05 ID:efLsAACg

>>906 I LOVE challah! We're the furthest there is from Jewish, but it's the only bread we eat.

The food will be very un-New York: homemade meatloaf in the shape of a heart with a red ketchup/chili glaze - ah, the romance.

Nothing says 'you're going to get some' like homemade steak and ale pie! Enjoy.

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone else!

910 Name: Anon : 2016-02-14 16:08 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>907 I recall the Twitter interpretation. It was all pretty thin, wasn't it? It wasn't even sightings from fans, by and large. And really almost no photos. As you say it was "he favourited x, therefore he feels/thinks/ is going out with y." I remember writing undergraduate essays about the inner thoughts of various poets which were much the same!

Whereas now we have IG from reliable third parties, including photos (so it did happen!) and video (thanks Jason!)(more than once - I loved the party video where TH is so obviously only interested in the food laid out on the kitchen island)

911 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-14 16:10 ID:efLsAACg

>>908 I'm imagining a conversation like:

TH: Nah, don't fly out, we'll celebrate when I fly into LA.

EO: Are you sure? I don't mind flying out.

TH: No, we'll go some place nice next week. Take a trip...maybe somewhere tropical....

Famous last words, TH, famous last words.

912 Name: Anon : 2016-02-14 16:19 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>909 We're not either, but after 15 years living near some truly excellent Jewish bakeries, I'd push my grandma down a manhole to get the last braided challah in the shop on Sunday morning!

Bejjamin Disraeli was once made happy by his wife waiting up after a long Parliamentary debate to feed him steak pie that she herself had made. "My dear," he said, "you're far more like a mistress than a wife." This is one of my husband's favourite anecdotes, hence the pie.

Happy Valentine, all. If only the BBC had agreed to put TNM on this evening, we could all get a cuddle with TH!

Apparently di Caprio has arrived on the RC for the BAFTAs. I assume that someone tells them all when to arrive, in order of importance, so I guess they are close to all having arrived now. Whoever is in charge of BAFTA's Twitter and IG accounts should be taken away for retraining, possibly having been shown this board. Either that or it really is a star-free (and hence a virtually tweet-free) zone tonight.

>>914 There's a screening of TNM in Berlin later this week, right? If Tom is going to be in Berlin and Luke brought him his guitar, then probably the BBC radio interview is prerecorded - otherwise Tom could have just picked up his own guitar in London. Though the radio interview could still be live via phone or satellite, of course.

Wonder why Tom needs his guitar... maybe since the birthday party was a big hit he's going to put on a one man show for the SI cast in Vietnam.

anyone else catching Tom (bless) accidentally "liking" random fan tweets about himself that he then unlikes? He's done it a few times and even if it is just a matter of accidentally clicking on the wrong icon, it does show that he (or "Team Tom") are monitoring what he's being tweeted about ..

923 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-02-15 12:34 ID:5qEt5bUn

>>922 I only know of the most recent Deadpool tweet that he liked but now doesn't seem to be on his account - that I can see on my phone display.

OT: I know because the tweeter was semi-bombarded with fan tweets telling her/him that TH himself (!) had liked one of her/his tweets. The tweeter then crowed about it slightly in two tweets - he's only liked ten tweets and one of them is mine sort of stuff. That crow must have been killed and now is beng consumed after the 'unlike.'

I don't know of him liking and unliking tweets about himself.

3,2,1 until the theories start: THEO were going to see Deadpool together (hence the like), but they've broken up, so he unliked it. Clearly.

924 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-02-16 00:59 ID:u1vu1eqv

>>918 Apparently/maybe he does? It's hidden to non-subscribers on his IMDBpro acct. When he first started his firm I think he created a talent gallery like his former place, but now the website is only a front page with a link to email and social media. The Instagram link has the client gallery now, but Colin is absent so perhaps he's a recent acquisition. There's an FB page, that points to Luke's LinkedIn which is public (no need for an acct: https://uk(.) The interesting thing about the LinkedIn is the 'People Also Looked At" column on the right, where you can see who all the thirsty fans searched for. Finally, it looks like Luke is hiring.

According to Twitter TH will be on R2 at 4.15. There is a new (to me) pic of him at the BBC studios on Twitter as well, which I don't think was taken on a previous occasion, so he may have come back to the UK to record/appear live: https://mobile.twitter(.)com/HughLaurious/status/699613024718557185

928 Name: Anon : 2016-02-16 16:34 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>927 I listened in. Don't worry if you didn't as it was about 5 minutes and it was pretty unilluminating.

Half of it was about ISTL (Steve Wright was basically saying, last time you were here it was about ISTL, er, any sign of a release date?)(answer: there is a US release date and TH "hopes" it will be released soon after in the UK. No specific date given though).

The rest was bog standard boilerplate about TNM: Le Carre comes from that world, he was very involved in the production, Hugh Laurie is a funny guy.

Only interesting thing (to me). He sounds very mid-Atlantic suddenly. The accent is not nearly so cut glass as he has started saying things like "two thousand four" for the year 2004.

Couldn't tell if it was pre recorded or not. Steve did say "he is in the studio with me" not "I caught up with"; I don't know if the BEEB is allowed to pretend it's live when it's not. He was in a studio and definitely not over the phone - could be another studio elsewhere although there was no sound lag and they do usually say something like "joining us live from a studio in LA" if that's where the person is- radio 2 needs all the glamour it can get (!!).

>>928 A Brit once said to me that listening to Radio 2 - and enjoying it - was a sign of impending death. I don't know if it's that bad, but....

I'll agree about the new pic - that seems to be his 'Oz hair.' Maybe he has returned to the UK to top up his accent! I know that I sounded nearly-British after living in the UK for about three months (my mother played me a phone message I'd left and I hardly recognized myself!). So, it's not surprising that after hanging around Americans for the past 5ish months, that his accent might have altered slightly. Also, I wonder what accent he needs for Kong - American, I'd presume, so that's another layer.

930 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-16 17:07 ID:I47D5H6G

I don't think the ISTL mention was just some easy banter. It sounded like a proper little mention/pre-push.

Also, he did say he'd 'be back for Hank,' so it sounds like SPC is going to give ISTL a decent push in the States and UK...if Radio 2 counts as 'a push.'

931 Name: Anon : 2016-02-16 17:34 ID:bgcXLLLp

On a side note, I am hugely impressed with the efficient publicity machine that is the BBC. When I compare how poor the publicity was for, say, CP (killing the movie with all those spoilery bottom-filled trailers and not knowing if it was a horror movie or a gothic romance or what it was), I am impressed with what the Beeb does on a comparatively tiny budget. The last few weeks have been a masterpiece of teasing and high quality production stills of our boy with a hot tan.

Could he be en route to Vietnam from the UK? When I flew this route a few years ago options were fairly limited: Thai Airways and change at Bangkok or Vietnam Airways direct. Thai is ok but nowhere near as nice as Ethiad and Vietnam Airways has that Aeroflot fall out the the sky feel. If you can now fly Ethiad and change in Dubai it is probably a lot nicer.

958 Name: Anon : 2016-02-17 09:28 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>956 I don't tweet that stuff either. I feel a bit guilty for finding other people's tweets about TH interesting as I really don't think celebs sign up for being stalked across London on Twitter, with the world and its dog knowing where you are at any given moment.

PS filming starts tomorrow so the timing is right for a flight to Vietnam (from whichever destination): (I think Couch posted this already).

And you were also right about the EO meet-up. Looks like it didn't happen. TH in London (or never left Oz). No sign that he spent the week off with EO.

>>955 Between SI and TNM filming this past year, Tom has done quite a lot of globetrotting - I'm jealous as well. A number of the locations he's been are on my bucket list. Maybe I should see about getting Olly's job.

960 Name: Anon : 2016-02-17 09:34 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>959 Yes, that's a good gig. No work seemingly and a lot of globetrotting and getting to admire TH in his pants as he wanders around your jointly rented bachelor pad!

961 Name: Anon : 2016-02-17 13:22 ID:bgcXLLLp

A pic of the original birthday cake. Possibly a clue as to TH's costume?

962 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-17 19:20 ID:phpAezLc

Sweat, flush, chest hair, bird're welcome.

Maybe taped in Oz - or a sauna.

963 Name: Anon : 2016-02-17 19:49 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>962 Or in Morocco? Hair looks a bit short for Oz.

Not that I really care where it was filmed. This particular look makes me want to do bad things to him. Even worse things than the open shirted whoopsie incest handjob scene in CP.

964 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-17 20:12 ID:phpAezLc

>>963 'open shirted whoopsie incest handjob scene' Perfection.

>>963 Maybe Morocco, or HI - anywhere where there's sun and his poor British skin is fighting a losing battle!

This reminds me of the time the Italian and I went to Greece with a British couple. I tan easily, and after a few days the Italian and I looked like bronzed gods...and the British couple looked like burn victims. Lobster red!

I just noticed Hugh's interview...sorry Hugh - blame your co-stars 38 chest hairs! So, maybe Mallorca.

966 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-02-18 01:01 ID:u1vu1eqv

>>962 His poor skin. I hope he doesn't end up with the same issues Hugh Jackman is having with skin cancer on his nose.

967 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-18 04:08 ID:qsPbpOI+

So apparently there is a scene in TNM where that motherducker shaves. There's lather and wet hands and...lather...and shirtlessness...and hands that are wet.


968 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-18 04:14 ID:qsPbpOI+

Here's the Oz trailer that gives a peek at the shaving scene.

I know I shouldn't want six episodes of him shaving and getting dressed; I understand there needs to be a story, but maybe just two episodes.

969 Name: Anon : 2016-02-18 07:31 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>968 Sadly this must happen very rarely IRL. Since he is never seen without a few days of stubble one is presented with the rather less sexy prospect of him grooming his bead with a set of clippers. I am not a great fan of the bumfluff so more shaving say I!

I am told by tumblr that the boy will be in Berlin for the premiere of TNM. Will keep an eye out. In the ongoing game of Where's Wally, this makes me ask: was he actually photographed in and recorded in a BBC radio studio down under, and was he depicted flying from Australia to Europe on Etihad?

972 Name: Anon : 2016-02-18 13:00 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>971 PS I can't see any confirmation online from official sources he will be there. Can anyone else?

973 Name: Anon : 2016-02-18 13:07 ID:bgcXLLLp

This is what I have for you. Olly is on the way (to Vietnam we assume) today, with his fellow PA. Tom was flying (arrived? If pic was tweeted after the flight ended) yesterday. A German TV network says it is interviewing him today. Useful compendious tumblr post:

PS who is mad enough to drop everything and fly to Berlin for a day to - what? Stand outside a hotel where he is being interviewed and hope to see him? Evidently some people are.

974 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-02-18 17:19 ID:Heaven

>>973 I think TH was never in London for the BBC radio, the hair in that radio photo was much darker that it is now and if he were in London he would have used British Airway to fly to Berlin, not Ethiad - not that it is such a big deal.

Anyway, here's is TH at the Berlinale

I'm sure Torrilla will provide the usual HQ photos later

978 Name: Anon : 2016-02-18 18:40 ID:W9NdlGHU

Red carpet lite! Black tie arms to have gone right out recently even for premieres.

979 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-18 18:44 ID:ZfGkawNU

>>971 I feel like anything is possible re: his traveling. We all ask questions: 'Who would do that? That makes no sense?' But I think being on a plane is now just like background noise to him. Olly or Luke books the flights and he just climbs aboard.

980 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-18 18:56 ID:ZfGkawNU

>>974 I find it so hard to tell with him. I feel like his hair looks one way one day and then can look totally different the next.

Clothes are always the same. Hair is never the same.

981 Name: Anon : 2016-02-18 19:01 ID:W9NdlGHU

>>980 I agree - and I have seen pics where the light on a RC makes a blues suit look black and his hair look a totally different colour from a pic taken at the same event.

982 Name: Anon : 2016-02-18 19:02 ID:W9NdlGHU

>>980 I am beginning to agree with you about the straightened hair. I don't think it helps the condition.

983 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-18 19:07 ID:ZfGkawNU

The red carpet pics of the 3 leads are great. I especially love that - for perhaps the first time EVAH - TH is the short-ass amongst the leads (HL and ED)!

984 Name: Anon : 2016-02-18 19:08 ID:W9NdlGHU

>>979 I agree he must travel an insane amount by plane. My objection to globetrotter!tom is that it is used by the crazies to justify every incosistent Twitter sighting and possible scenario. I get the impression he is like the Duracell bunny - totally on or totally off, hibernating at home.

I must say that joining the fandom I have reconsidered what it would be like to have that level of fame and that career. Not great. Seeing how much he travels and assuming other stars are the same, I no longer wonder at how many acting marriages break down.

985 Name: Anon : 2016-02-18 19:10 ID:W9NdlGHU

>>983 Do you think he crept into Liz'a room and stole her high heels? She is the same height so she must be in flats.

986 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-18 19:55 ID:ZfGkawNU

'Looking lean and buff, with a golden tan and impeccably tousled hair, Hiddleston is presented in maximum eye-candy mode here. He has several steamy sex scenes in the first two episodes, with strong indications of more to come...'

And there are the obvious comparisons to a certain 007. With rumors of Craig's departure from the Bond franchise, Luke and TH might have planned this mini-series to perfection - if he's interested in that role, of course.

987 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-18 19:57 ID:ZfGkawNU

>>985 Or he's wearing Tom Cruise like lifts!

988 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-18 20:07 ID:5qEt5bUn


There's something comical about this pic.

He looks GORGEOUS! Also how good do him and Elizabeth Debicki look together? She's taller than him but they still look good!

He's going to land the 007 role if The Night Manager gets fantastic ratings. If they want to stick with a blond Bond, then Tom is their man.

992 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-18 21:08 ID:t1/DOegz

Apparently the Q&A for TNM featured a lot of TH questions that weren't at all related to TNM. Cringe.

Maybe this tweeter is just a delicate snowflake...but knowing Hiddlestoners.


993 Name: Anon : 2016-02-18 23:24 ID:bgcXLLLp

>>992 I do wonder given that the tweeter's avatar is a pice of Warhol-style Cumberbath fan art. One thing the nutty fans love to do is to criticise other fans for - well, anything really. Showing Disrespect to his Art is a big trope. They wouldn't like it here, where serious critiques of Ballard and chats about Thucidydes rub shoulders with links to willy bulge pics!

994 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-19 01:00 ID:t1/DOegz

>>993 A few Hugh Laurie fans posted the same complaints. Shrugs shoulders. As long as no one asked him for a hug, it probably goes down as a win. Besides, I'm sure it's a level of cringe TH's dealt with before.

It's really the moderator who should shut down the 'What was your motivation for Loki?' and 'Who is your favorite Eliz(s)abeth?" questions. But if the moderator doesn't do his/her job, TH should step up, even in his usually charming way.

995 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-19 01:27 ID:t1/DOegz

TH checking his fly/flies (Olly's not there so he has to do it himself) and Luke 'holding' TH's glasses by wearing them on his person.

Just a usual night in Berlin.


996 Name: Anon. : 2016-02-19 01:38 ID:t1/DOegz

'Hiddleston arrived in Berlin from Australia, where he has been filming Kong: Skull Island with best actress Oscar hopeful Brie Larson.' And now we know!

OT: This article led me to one saying that they are remaking 'Are You Being Served?' My heart says 'nooooo' but Jason Watkins is set to play Mr Humphries, so my brain is saying 'yes.'

997 Name: Whatsinaname : 2016-02-19 06:58 ID:u1vu1eqv

There was another cringeworthy fan moment at the TNM Q&A session. Someone posted an account of it here:

There's a 13 min video of the session which I haven't watched.

Luke should request questions be screened and asked by a moderator for solo Q&As from here on out, but it's not possible to do it at these special screenings, is it?

998 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-02-19 07:01 ID:Heaven

>>996 'He then heads to Vietnam to continue shooting the Kong film, and there’s much speculation about him returning to the role of bad boy Loki in Thor 3.

‘Might do,’ was all he would tell me about the Marvel film.'

He remains the only one who wouldn't talk about Thor3
