Thread to talk about the actor Tom Hiddleston.

In the Observer, Tom is unfortunately described at Gucci as being the ex- of you know who. FYI, the pics of the runway show clothes via Tom + Lorenzo are crackers.

>>951 Yeah people don't know what to make of this Gucci. They didn't know what to make of last year's either. I have three Gucci dresses (all bought on deep discount, thank you NM Last Call) and they are classics. They come out every tear and grab me a few compliments. This is not that Gucci. I'm not sure where the Gucci of those dresses went. I'll be interested to see how these come off the runway.

>>949>>950 Dude is owning his Eliza Doolittle at the races look. The problem is TH's look was picked out and bought for him by Yours Truly or Gucci, and it shows. Those sneaks are a No. And would he ever pick out a sweater with a bee pattern on his own? Eliza has the right to side eye.

953 Name: Sosorry : 2017-02-25 06:50 ID:bbgAObmX

>>949>>950>>952 Not a fan of the sneakers b/c Tom seems to appear more comfortable, and prefer a sleeker and dressier shoe. I think that he wears the Aquatalia grey suede boots all the time because Aquatalia soles are soo comfy, and the boots give him a dressier finish when he wears casual clothing. The athletic shoe stripe on the Gucci shoe is a bit casual and flash. Even the bashed Ariat cowboy boots looked better than a sneaker. Apparently his stylist Ilaria Urbinati picked the fabric for the suit, v. theatrical, and he picked the red tie. Not sure who picked the casual outfit for the after party. I vote for Tom to wear an old-school bad a- Steve McQueen/Thomas Crown Affair brown suede desert boot. Those Tom Ford grey suede short Russell sneakers w/o the stripe that he wore last year in 2015 US GQ are OK. I usually think of extravagant pop stars/rappers/and hip hop artists when I see $900 athletic sneakers, not serious dramatic actors.

>>950, >>952 Corsets are always classic. Insect sweaters with varsity jackets, not so much.

>>953 The sneakers might have been OK on their own, but with the jacket and bee-sweater (I'll skip the obligatory Hamlet pun), they were too matchy-matchy for me.

It could have been worse - much worse. Scroll down in this article to see the look Jared Leto sported (barfed up?) for the party.

Also, at least this feature only took a crack at Tom's usual footwear, not the T-Shirt of Doomed Careers: "...were in attendance as was a non-grey-velvet-shoe-wearing Tom Hiddleston."

957 Name: Heynon : 2017-02-26 01:03 ID:vHSFHHHc

>>956 In case anyone wants to read the article and can't get to it (it's supposedly subscription only), the blurb about the year off reads: " ...besides seeing Kong and Ragnarok out into the world, Hiddleston is planning to take much of 2017 off.
“I’m taking a bit of a breather, because I’ve been running quite hard for five or six years and I just need to check in with stuff at home,” he says. "

" When asked if the intense spotlight of 2016 might have contributed to his desire to hide away this year, he considers for a moment then replies: “Honestly, it is I have been working relentlessly. I’ve spent so much time away from home and after a while you realise there are other things in life that you need to check in with, like family and friends ... those things are just as important. So it’s really that.” " [Note: there's that "honestly" thing again.]

The DM has a rehash:

>>958 After some tumblr and twitter searching, just these:

(first twitter post about it, are a couple more that day) /AtlantaFilming/status/834769172521431040

(more "details"/speculation on tumblr)
"I don't know how accurate the account is, but there's a Twitter feed called @AtlantaFilming, and they do seem to have a line on films in the Atlanta area. The account holder hinted a few days ago that "a god that was not an Avenger" had met up in Scotland with the cast members who just left GA to go there to film."

Tom sighting at a bakery in London. No knowledge of whether he is involved in IW, or headed to Scotland in the future:

@AtiChowDown "When your friend is standing next to Tom Hiddleston and his first thought is "yes I'm better dressed!" 😂" "A bakery in London aha."

Thanks!! He cracks me up! Tom likes freshly baked bread? Just stoping in for a biscuit or 5?

961 Name: Couch Potato : 2017-02-27 08:26 ID:Heaven

>>958 Allow a little laugh first at TH's fans fretting over TS presence in London. She dumped him, but they worry she is stalking him! lol

I think TH's fanatics are, as usual, making a lot of assumptions.

Back in January it was announced that IW would also be filming in Scotland, Glasgow&Edinburgh, for 6 months. So 6 months is the duration of the filming.
This Scotland leg seems to be mostly centred on Peter Dinklage's character and his homeworld, supported by the fact that they have been doing casting call for little people. This character is connected to Thor - the dwarf king made Thor's Mjolnir - based on a concept art for IW where Thor is wielding another weapon, which means that Hemsworth will probably show up in Scotland.

You can see why TH's fans would think his presence is probable, but in reality it's impossible to say.
TH made a big thing of his sabbatical and how there are more important things in life. Now, filming a cameo wouldn't really contradict that, but a shooting longer than 3/4 weeks would. I also don't see how Marvel would be able to keep his presence a secret.

962 Name: Couch Potato : 2017-02-27 08:27 ID:Heaven

Ah, Anon, about Olly, wasn't there a photo of them together at G&W at the end of Nov.?

I really couldn't say if he dropped Olly or not, I suppose that if he won't be with TH during Kong's press tour then you might be right.

963 Name: Sosorry : 2017-02-27 08:54 ID:bbgAObmX

>>962 Olly just posted artwork from an Asian King Kong poster just 2 weeks ago, so Olly's probably still affiliated with Luke at Prosper PR. No idea if he's still on Team Tom, specifically.
>>961 If Tom had to lie to protect the ending of Thor 3 and Marvel's privacy, I'm sure that he would. Tom used the word "honestly" and that's usually a code for a fib. Plus, Tom said he's taking "most of 2017 off" in that Australian article. Wiggle room is there for finessing the truth, methinks : )

964 Name: Anon : 2017-02-27 10:13 ID:1IVzbkeo

>>962,963 You're right Couch, they were photographed together last November, but not since, I believe. He wasn't photographed on the recent brief trip to LA or to Milan that I saw.

I know he posted the Kong poster- but he was and is good mates with Bryan (!!) and seemed to invest a lot in the project generally & identify with those who were more involved. So he might have posted the pic because of that.

As Couch says, let's see if he appears during the press tour.

965 Name: Couch Potato : 2017-02-27 16:55 ID:Heaven

>>963 I don't doubt he would if asked, but my point is why if people will inevitably find out he is in Scotland? They never confirmed Sif in Thor3 but we all saw the photos from set with Jamie Alexander. The same would happen with TH.

New Kong trailer

It's a well packaged trailer, I'll give them that, it spoils too much though. And I have a feeling this film would have been better without jokes and with more whipped cream! (yeah it's a bad joke)

what happened to Brie's boobies in this film? Padded bra? They needed to maintain at least 1 cliché?

967 Name: Anon : 2017-02-27 18:02 ID:1IVzbkeo


Well, I suppose everyone knows from the title that it is about a giant ape - so the way to get people to see it is to show them the spectacle even if that is a bit spoilery (and I guess it doesn't spoil if Kong turns out to be a good guy and if they get of the island or find the treasure or whatever).

I did hate the choice of music. Too much of an attempt at sass. It really doesn't give much of a sense of looming menace...

I don't know about the boobies. There was reference to filming on mountainous islands but I thought that was a comment about Hawaii.

Homeless persons would very much like to be excluded from this narrative.

Oh my dears, the PANTS!

Tom's going-out-for-coffee wardrobe list and today's rating:

  • One of the two pairs of shoes owned? - Check
  • T-shirt that's required any time associated with a Legendary production? -- Check
  • This winter's hiddleslayering layer (hoodie) - Check
  • Coat to button really tightly to show off the torso - Check
  • Pants that look spray-painted onto legs - FAIL
  • Nothing other than blue or grey - FAIL
  • Obligatory Gucci item - Unknown (maybe the hoodie? All that color!)

>>968, >>969 Best comment on Tumblr: "When you’re voguing with the face but you messed up thrift shopping on the body"

971 Name: NewAnon : 2017-02-28 04:15 ID:OFs8XFTg

>>968 Those clothes look unwashed. Like they have been dirty and lying in the hamper for months. Ugh ew I think I'm gonna be sick. Is he depressed? Or is he remodeling his kitchen himself and got plaster stains all over himself? The pants clearly have footprints on them...I forget who it was on here but when the GQ profile came out, they said we are seeing Tom having a breakdown. I think they were right because those clothes look legitimately dirty, like someone call CDC there could be mold or a zombie virus growing on that jacket and pants" dirty.

972 Name: Anon : 2017-02-28 07:18 ID:1IVzbkeo

>>971 It was me. I said he might if he carried on like his.

That lovely Reiss jacket was about £300 and it looks like it has been thrown on a filthy floor and then trodden on. He does look a bit bonkers here. Everyone has a pair of ancient sweat pants that they wear when they sneak out for a "don't let me meet anyone" coffee. I get that. But I do put mine in the washing machine. He looks unsanitary here.

973 Name: Couch Potato : 2017-02-28 08:18 ID:Heaven

>>967 yes, music and jokes take away the menace you expect from a monster film, the spoilers take away the surprise.

It seems like they wanted to do a film à la Spielberg, tension and jokes. I have a feeling they didn't manage the balance.

974 Name: Couch Potato : 2017-02-28 08:23 ID:Heaven

>>971,972 Maybe he has attachment issues, because here it's not a matter of being frugal, those sweat pants belong to a garbage bin. The rest to the laundry.

975 Name: Sosorry : 2017-02-28 09:47 ID:bbgAObmX

>>972>>971 Tom's fashion homage to a preppy hobo does not make me nervous for his mental health. I think that he's adopted the Elizabeth Olsen method of calling the paps right before he heads into doing press for a film/festival/award show, and in calling them again in the days immediately after he finishes press for a film. She rocks the Whole Foods, farmers market, gym, and au bond pain pap runs in a slightly more casually fashionable way, though. If superstars like Daniel Craig and Jude Law don't get papped all the time, and no one can find Tom Hardy, then there is no way that the press camps outside of Tom's abode for no reason whatsoever. Can't wait for his radio interview on the Breakfast Show with Ed Sheeran!

976 Name: Couch Potato : 2017-02-28 10:57 ID:Heaven

Well, today's is London's premiere for Kong, he is attending.

Since I don't feel like doing a calendar like I used to, check here the rest of the press tour - he is already confirmed for LA's (duh!), Mexico and Japan's.

977 Name: NewAnon : 2017-02-28 14:25 ID:OFs8XFTg

>>972 Yeah even the £300 jacket has a footprint on it too and it's crumpled beyond recognition. That was a nice jacket honestly. His clothes being dirty is what I find a little disconcerting, otherwise him wearing clothes until they fall apart is nothing new.

>>974 Attachment issues or not, he could be hygienic at least lol

>>975 It's not about his hobo look. It's Tom, it's expected he'd wear clothes like that. But it's their state that I find disturbing. His clothes look like they haven't been washed probably since his days in Oz for Thor. He wore that Reiss jacket then and it was this clean gorgeous black. I mean you can see footprints on both the sweatpants and the jacket. They look clearly unwashed. Elizabeth Olsen and the others at least wear clean clothes on their casual just outta the gym pap strolls, even when it's hobo chic.

978 Name: Couch Potato : 2017-02-28 16:47 ID:Heaven

>>977 Indeed! And I wasn't even willing to allow that maybe the washing machine is broken, but today gives us fresh pap photos of him running with....those same sweat pants! Footprint included.

A pair of sweatpants for every use.

979 Name: Couch Potato : 2017-02-28 16:49 ID:Heaven

>>978 *was willing

He was at some Unicef event for South Sudan last night, without sweatpants.

980 Name: Sosorry : 2017-02-28 17:48 ID:bbgAObmX

>>977>>979 Hobo chic was a joke, b/c I was scared to say that Tom was channeling a homeless person because homlessness is such an issue with the economy the way it is. No idea why Tom can't dryclean the jacket, or run his clothes through the wash. He should consider it : ) Not sure if Reiss clothes wear that well, b/c even in prior closeup pics you can tell that the fabric of the Reiss jacket is bashed up w/in and inch of his life. If Tom can keep a Gucci suit clean and pressed for a Unicef photo opp, then he's just trying to trick the GP into thinking that he doesn't do pap strolls. New DM article w/o TS pics. Glad that Tom is taking a 'break', it will be nice to not see his face for a bit.

981 Name: Anon. : 2017-02-28 17:54 ID:GlfTeNg6

PhotoGate or HomelessGate! Hurrah.

I would be more concerned about the 2am tweeting than the state of these clothes. First I think the camera is tricking our eyes a bit. The jacket, I think is 'flaring' or 'ghosting' the camera light or the natural light, maybe both. So parts that are crinkled, bent, bunched or sunken appear greyish or white. This happens with drone and satellite images all the time - the angled parts of dark items look very light-colored sometimes. Personally, knowing how light can do very strange things to pictures, I wouldn't be surprised to find that there's not any dust on that jacket at all. Ghosting and flaring are crazy like that. I don't see any footprints myself.

I prefer this hot mess TH to the fucking hot mess TH that Your Truly and Gucci are going to chuck down the RC tonight. What will it be? All the patterns again, purple, weird retro pattern, bell bottoms?

982 Name: Sosorry : 2017-02-28 18:36 ID:bbgAObmX

Apparently only Ken Watanabe is returning for the Godzilla sequel in 2019, so who knows if Tom will return for the Godzilla v Kong film in 2020. I think that I'm rooting for Tom to do a Shakespearean adaptation on film or TV. Or period piece on HBO, like Cumberbatch did with Parade's End. Easy Emmy nomination.

983 Name: Heynon : 2017-02-28 18:50 ID:t7rozFwZ

>>981 and above - given that he wore the same sweats for his run today, Sunday's PR fail may just have been him not bothering to change before going for breakfast, and forgetting that Luke had scheduled a pap stroll. That is one blue-stare-of-death he gave the pap! Or maybe having admitted to being at liberty for most this year, he just doesn't give a damn anymore. (But not caring about things you used to care about can be a sign of depression.)

Torilla already has pix up from the U.K. red carpet - looks like a very conservative suit. Sorry I can't link (on phone) but in a couple of the hug pictures, he has an odd expression, almost desperate (think Sir Thomas Sharpe's "oh shit, I forgot about Edith!" face while he's got death- grip hug on his sister.) But he looks happy to see Jordan V-R.

984 Name: Heynon : 2017-02-28 19:08 ID:t7rozFwZ

Also, in these red carpets pix (and some from the LA press junket) he looks even thinner than normal to me.

985 Name: Couch Potato : 2017-02-28 19:17 ID:Heaven

>>981 How low we have fallen, from purse gate, to the height of TayTo to sweatpants!

>>982 Why did anyone think TH was going to be part of the GodzillavsKong film? Kong's set in the '70s, Godzilla's first film was 2014. Watanabe's character appears in 1999 and 2014 so TH's character was never going to be in that film.

986 Name: NewAnon : 2017-02-28 19:32 ID:OFs8XFTg

>>981 That makes more sense. Because that Reiss jacket is pretty black and it looks very faded in the pics. I really like that jacket which is why I was appalled that he'd mistreat it. Seriously, it's a gorgeous jacket.

>>983 Does he have that desperate look because he was told to contain himself and not talk too much and embarrass himself? Or maybe he's petrified a reporter will ask about the summer of love and TayTo? He did open that door in his GQ interview. I wonder if Luke is there.

987 Name: Anon. : 2017-02-28 22:13 ID:d3jPrF6S

>>983 Very reserved. Yours Truly will still take credit for something...the color blue, suits in general, pants.

>>983>>986 He's going to have a slightly desperate look while on the RC for a bit longer. It must be like entering Taytodome: he doesn't know if someone's going to throw him a Tayto question.

>>966 As to BL's mountains...I used to think that she was that most hated of creatures: a thin woman with naturally big and well-shaped breasts. But this RC carpet dress has exposed a square boobie. Square boobie = fake boobie. But that's okay, it means I can hate her less!

988 Name: Anon. : 2017-02-28 22:15 ID:d3jPrF6S

>>986 I forgot to add: Luke is probably with Emma Watson on her promo tour. EW trumps TH.

989 Name: Anon : 2017-02-28 22:56 ID:1IVzbkeo

This was not his best red carpet. He looks ok but only ok.

Square boob indeed....

990 Name: Anon : 2017-02-28 23:10 ID:1IVzbkeo

>>981 afraid I think it is just dirt. Seen him in this jacket a lot and I have never seen this effect before. Also, is that a footprint shaped flare?

991 Name: Anon. : 2017-03-01 00:37 ID:2ZCDlHYL

>>990 Light is strange like that. The dust looks different in different shots which makes me think it's a trick of the light, angle, etc. Actually now that I look again, the white is only really noticeable in the shots post-breakfast - when he's walking back with the coffee and bag. Maybe the cafe didn't have any napkins and he's so A-list now that he used a 300 quid jacket as his napkin? Or his breakfast included powdered donuts. Or he really is a cocaine freak.

I didn't see a footprint on the jacket like New Anon did. But the running pants are dirty. If it is a shoe print, it could be due to his running routine. My husband - when he goes out for a run, usually right before a DEFCON 1 diaper needs to be changed - comes back, pants off (they are just for running so they get washed after a few runs) and folded along with his running shirt. They get put on a shelf in our laundry room for the next use. His sneakers usually end up on top of the shirt and pants. Just one scenario. Or he's having people stomp on him as a ritualistic punishment for ever deciding to Tayto (new verb).

I hope he's a cocaine freak who allows a powdered donut eating dominatrix to step on him as punishment for Tayto.

Captcha: cheattness. What could it mean?

>>985 Flashback sequences?

>>995 Kong is a prequel, Kong is the flashback.

997 Name: Anon : 2017-03-01 10:41 ID:UNWe9Kbf

>>994 Who knows what is going on in his noddle. "Finishing up" may refer to the UNICEF documentary, though quite frankly having known people who make documentary films, the post production period of this is longer than anything I have ever known save for things like nature documentaries, which are a whole different ballgame.

As for future projects - I'll believe it when I see it. I slightly feel that he has seen all the screaming headlines saying "Tom takes a year off" and immediately wants to "correct" trnposition so he doesn't sound like he is on the beach.

998 Name: Couch Potato : 2017-03-01 12:21 ID:Heaven

>>997 I thought that too, that saying you are taking a year off isn't very conducive to find work now or later.
But I also think that he might not have wanted to contradict himself (again). He has 2 films to promote, one of which is a Marvel film and that means showing up at SDCC and other comic convention, so he was never going to completely disappear from the radar.

Anyway, since we are in March and nothing has been announced, any future project won't start before May, at best.
