Tom Hiddleston (1000)

Thread to talk about the actor...oh fuck it. You know what to do

951 Name: Heynon : 2017-08-22 01:04 ID:vcHuIQwy

>>935 Ah, I didn't know that Ben C had recommended Tom to replace him in CP. So there's another role that potentially was just handed to him.

For Bond, agree that violating an NDA would put him on the old kind of blacklist. But how much did Tom really say about wanting the role other than that he'd be thrilled to play it? (I wasn't following him at that point, so I really don't know and am curious. I saw occasional articles that smacked a bit of "tall poppy syndrome" for his having even made that comment. There even was some interview where he hung his head when asked about it and said something about he wished that people would just stop talking about it.) And do you think his PR team was feeding the idea to the tabloids? I had more of the impression that the tabs were milking it themselves.

I think your last paragraph neatly sums up what he did to his image by associating with that pap-stunt-pulling, self-centered child last summer. Though he did already tend to hog the spotlight during promo tours, it wasn't to the point that he needed to be babysat. Unfortunately, it is now, and even having a sitter at the GGs didn't keep him from stepping in it! Someone must have read him the riot act and finally gotten through to him, because we saw that almost 180 turn in his behavior during the KSI tour.

>>946 Agree that the emails don't imply "famewhore." The first one does imply that he was still far enough down the ladder of HW success to be flattered (or that he should be flattered!) at the offer of a supporting role to Sasha Baron Cohen. As we know, TH has high need to feel loved/wanted, even for an actor.

The emails are from early 2014. Would he have been involved with Night Manager by that point as a produces?

The eclipse here was 75% - 80%. Didn't get all that dark, but the temperature definitely dropped a few degrees. And it really was cool to watch it, even if the glasses were dorky!

953 Name: heynon : 2017-08-22 01:16 ID:vcHuIQwy

>>949 Last one, then I'm off to watch a leader of the free world who watched the eclipse today without wearing the glasses....

I suspect Tom's presence at that premiere was as much "would attend the opening of an envelope" as bit support for Josh W. At least I hope so. To me, Tom's feminist cred dropped a bit after his going along with (and continuing to use) the "mewling quim" line in A1.

954 Name: Anon. : 2017-08-22 01:33 ID:exg4yfck

>>947 I think you're correct, but that doesn't mean he wasn't dreaming about Bond, even as early as 2014.

>>949 If you have to say you're a feminist, you probably aren't. Whedon's fake feminism has been a story since the days of Buffy and Angel. I'm not surprised.

>>951 His people likely were feeding it. I remember there was a pap video taken of TH as he was walking near the cafe. The main topic of the pap's questions: Bond. Anon has told us that the neighborhood isn't really a hotbed of pap activity but somehow a pap showed up to chat with TH about Bond...just as he was getting his morning cup o joe... like paps showed up everywhere Tayto went. Neither was coincidental. If the paps milked it, it was because someone gave them the cow, stool and pail.

>>951 I think the media and internet read him the riot act. After the showmance and the GG, he couldn't continue with the piddling puppy act. Also I think about the cringe associated with Tayto down under. I recall both MR and CH having to answer Tayto questions, or dodge Tayto questions, during interviews and radio broadcasts. Not what you want from a colleague or from a work environment. That must be in the backs of people's minds.

And speaking of eclipses.... Dlisted tells me that - to no one's surprise - TS has posted to her SM. It appears to be a picture of a snake, so she's going to own that, I guess. I doubt she'll own her fakery as well. Oct. seems to be her usual album release month. Are we going to have SM hints and teasers through all of Sept. (Hamlet run) and then album drop and promo in Oct. (promo for/lead up to Thor in Nov.)? Does the universe hate TH that much?

Sept. will be all about speculation and Oct. all about dissecting the TH song (my new guess: Snake Charmer). Good luck with those two projects, TH!

Or am I exaggerating? Will focus fall on the new boyfriend and TH escape saturation mention?

956 Name: Whatsinaname : 2017-08-22 08:18 ID:Efyef8Wk

>>955 Her new single will drop this Friday the 25th. It's called 'Timeless.' Allegedly. I say she missed an opportunity not dropping it as the eclipse was happening yesterday.

957 Name: Whatsinaname : 2017-08-22 09:10 ID:Efyef8Wk

>>955 So it's coming down the pike quickly. I wonder if this is 'his' song, or if that will wait until the second single in about 2 or 3 months when you know who's you know what comes out. TH had better hope that this CD has a (surprise plot twist!) positive, forward thinking life spin and keep it about the new beau.

>>950 The Blacklist article/transcript was very interesting. Thanks again.

958 Name: Anon : 2017-08-22 14:45 ID:OLuKcXmu

The first official "I don't want to review Hamlet" article:

Not I thought a particularly powerful argument against reviewing. He says (1) I have to make a critical choice and reviewing this pushes out a review of something else (come on, do you really see plays every day? And you write for an online publication so are they honestly short of space); (2) it is sold out and plays to a small capacity theatre (but he concedes he will review sold out plays or those in small venues); (3) he doesn't review charity events (except when he does).

What it really comes down to seems to be his last few sentences: he doesn't have any real interest in the Hiddleston Hamlet. Why he feels like this he doesn't choose to analyse. I think it comes down to good old-fashioned pique: his view is not considered relevant by Branaghston, and he knows it.

959 Name: Heynon : 2017-08-22 17:29 ID:CMLPKxOa

>>958 It does sound like "Well, I probably wouldn't have reviewed it anyway so there HA!"

Care to bet that this fellow brings this up the next time he reviews TH or KB?

960 Name: Anon : 2017-08-22 17:44 ID:OLuKcXmu

>>959 I meanly thought when I saw his pic that he looked a bit like TH only....not quite. I bet he is sick of taking women out for dinner and then asking if he has met TH (or other hotties) in his work as a theatre critic!

961 Name: Anon : 2017-08-22 17:45 ID:OLuKcXmu

>>960 them asking

962 Name: Sosorry : 2017-08-22 21:07 ID:tW8pBDat

Tom, photographed out in the wild, wearing his uniform.

963 Name: Anon : 2017-08-22 21:36 ID:OLuKcXmu

>>962 Thanks Sosorry! Near RADA, FYI.

964 Name: Heynon : 2017-08-23 01:00 ID:vcHuIQwy

>>958 Best response to this critic in the comments: "What pathetic article. Talk about throwing your toys out of the pram."

>>962 Wonder if his fellow actors give him a hard time about the uniform?!

965 Name: NewAnon : 2017-08-23 08:27 ID:a5CbPO7S

>>939 I think depending on the type of story, Tom could do a lead role. He can do vulnerability and antagonism really well, and a modern mystery or a quiet psychological thriller would be a good fit. I can see him doing roles like Edward Norton in Primal Fear or Jake Gyllenhaal in Zodiac. Traditional Tom Cruise/ Bruce Willis type action roles or even romcoms are not Hiddlebum's forte. He can fit in a Wes Anderson comedy pretty well too.

>>944 Credibility with the public is part of it as well because of is the actor worth the hassle in $$$ when it comes to production costs. That's why some actors with serious substance abuse issues will keep getting good gigs even though they pose a huge insurance liability, because the public adores them and studios/ producers feel it's worth the risk in $$$. Tom is an idiot with how he blew his chances. That tanktop was nothing compared to how he arrived in Oz with Taylor and turned the entire Thor3 shoot about himself and Taylor. I'm pretty sure Marvel had to spent extra to ensure the privacy of the closed set, and Tom must have gotten some sort of warning about not allowing his relationship circus to follow him on set.

>>951 Even if you give Tom the benefit of the doubt and say TNM provoked the Bond rumors, if he was truly in consideration for the role, he immediately would have shut it all down because of the NDA. That's why you never find out about actors auditioning for whatever movies until it's about to go into pre-production. Likely scenario is what >>954 said. Tom wanted Bond and thought if he put it out there in the media that his Pine makes him a viable candidate for Bond, he would get noticed by Broccoli and company. He could have landed some other role in the Bond universe if he had networked instead of leaking and stunting.

966 Name: Anon : 2017-08-23 08:31 ID:OLuKcXmu

>>965 That's what I think about Bond. He wasn't in contention but he wanted to be (as is evident from his glowing blushes when denying it). So his people leak it after TNM, he then quite truthfully says "I'm not in talks" but all the while hoping the buzz will force Broccoli's hand to consider him - the People's Bond.

967 Name: NewAnon : 2017-08-23 08:35 ID:a5CbPO7S

>>958 He really struggled to try not to shit on the idea of charity plays but still ended up doing it anyways on RADA, and shit on Tom's acting potential as well. There will be some who will use this as an opportunity to gratify their Hiddleshate.

968 Name: Anon : 2017-08-23 08:36 ID:OLuKcXmu


PS He used to know all this. He mentioned doing a chemistry audition with EO many years before they worked together, and he was very careful not to say what it was for. He also I think didn't say he turned down Grimsby - people got that from his indirect comments only after the Sony hack.

969 Name: NewAnon : 2017-08-23 08:44 ID:a5CbPO7S

>>966 He really needs to mature up. I can't believe he has the agents and management that he does and then pulls juvenile reality star level media stunts like that.

970 Name: NewAnon : 2017-08-23 08:48 ID:a5CbPO7S

>>968 It's basic actor 101. It'd be worrisome if he didn't do it. I don't know what happened to make him do the stuff he did last summer. It was all very juvenile, something someone very green with rookie management would do. Not someone like Tom with the representation he has.

971 Name: Anon : 2017-08-23 17:25 ID:Qco39Hoe

TS's new album is called Reputation, and is being advertised with a b&w pic of her superimposed on newsprint.

Tom, girl, you in trouble!

972 Name: Heynon : 2017-08-23 17:48 ID:CMLPKxOa

>> Is he ever! It drops Nov. 10 - two weeks after T:R's UK release and one week after the US premiere.

973 Name: Anon. : 2017-08-23 20:15 ID:O8jMAONC

Awww, the rite of passage of every TS ex: the album drop, the liner notes, the anxiety. I'm sure Harris will come in for the really stern stuff; he didn't play along. TH has been proactive with his praise of her and his brokenhearted act so she might have needed to be gentle with him or risk backlash. I don't think she can go with the story she used about the break-up, i.e., he was the one pushing for a more public relationship.

So we are going to get a build-up that runs parallel and then converges with his schedule. He must be kicking himself.

Remember last June when her tumblr fans were introducing themselves to his fans, and talking about weddings? Oh how the world has changed.

974 Name: NewAnon : 2017-08-23 21:51 ID:a5CbPO7S

>>971 Good lord, I just saw that cover. Talk about the victim act on steroids. Tbh, I don't know how the general public will react to her lambasting the media when real journalism is under attack. Her fans are loving it but I don't know if this new rebranding (is it really rebranding though when it's the same ol' victim act?) is going to go down as successfully as 1989 did.

975 Name: Sosorry : 2017-08-24 04:53 ID:tW8pBDat

This article sadly articulates what I think is true about the fakeness of TS. Wow. Ouch.

976 Name: Heynon : 2017-08-25 03:56 ID:vcHuIQwy

Anyone else think that these quotes from an "exclusive insider" sound like a plant from Tom's PR team? This is some major preventive brown-nosing....

977 Name: Unknown : 2017-08-25 04:46 ID:tEDQq8q1

>>976 I don't know about that. Didn't her publicist or "insider" say immediately after the breakup announcement that he was using her for publicity (which is true) and her fame (also true) and that he wasn't falling in love with the real her, just the illusion of her. Pretty much calling him a famewhore. That doesn't scream "i'm gonna write a loving song about our barely 2 month relationship together". I think they broke up in early August during the rumored fight they had and then announced their breakup in September, but they were long over by then.

HollywoodLife is not exactly a reliable source, but if that is indeed a plant of Tom's well he sounds like a pathetic wimp. Just take it like a man Hiddleston. It's a song, that's all. And it does sound like something he would say in an interview. It has the same tone as the infamous GQ interview where he was spilling his fake broken heart for her. No one messes with Taylor and leaves unscathed.

Also there was a Blind item that he and his friends called Taylor a c**t. Her team probably saw this. Not going to end well but Taylor is trying to rebrand herself just like Tom, so these two fakes can suffer for all I care.

978 Name: NewAnon : 2017-08-25 05:13 ID:a5CbPO7S

>>976 It's Hollywood Life so I wouldn't take it seriously. Their stuff never sounds like any publicist calls them. If he is actually scared...grow a pair, Tom. Also, if TS's new single is any measure of what her new album is all about then last year's famewhore label and TS tanktop were the worst of it lol I didn't think it was possible for her lyrics to sound more juvenile as she got older but she showed us all.

979 Name: Sosorry : 2017-08-25 07:33 ID:tW8pBDat

>>978>>976 Hollywood Life can be described as just clickbait. The release date of Thor 3 is too close to the TS album release date for Tom's PR team and Marvel not to prepare in advance for a strategy. Please let Marvel protect the brand, and let Tom hire some crisis PR firm. My first impulse is that maybe Tom won't be insulted in a song, b/c a "Tom" song would bring up pics of the fauxmance, in which she took equal blame. TS seemed to label Tom w the famewhore narrative, and then she ditched him in the tabloids. It wouldn't help her brand to be associated with Tom anymore.

980 Name: Anon : 2017-08-25 09:04 ID:OLuKcXmu

According to Rolling Stone the new track is going for Kanye (,) though with its hackneyed lyrics and "poor me" attitude, it is hard to ascertain any particular target narrower than the world at large.

It is of course at number one - she has got 102m followers on Instagram after all - but whether it will be a critical success, or its message approved, remains to be seen. A number of commenters have already observed that "look what you made me do" is the defence invoked by rapists and child molesters everywhere. I think the tide turned last year for her as much as TH, actually. There is a greater willingness now to dig below the surface to interrogate the problematic messages she puts out about personal responsibility and her everlasting blonde victimhood.

981 Name: Anon. : 2017-08-25 16:19 ID:DEr8M0mj

One tweet I saw: Thought it was about Katy Perry. Or maybe John Mayer. Or maybe Tom Hiddleston. Or maybe Harry Styles. Or maybe Jake Gyllenhaal. Or maybe....

In the same way some can multi-task, she can multi-victim, playing the innocent, injured party to several 'cruel bullies.'

You made me do it. Nothing like the abrogation of personal responsibility.
I've not actually heard the song or seen the lyrics but the title could be perilously close to the truth for TS. Tayto seems to have been a response to Kim and Kanye's decision to speak about TS's knowledge of and agreement to his song's lyrics. They really did make her do it!

982 Name: Sosorry : 2017-08-25 21:40 ID:tW8pBDat

>>981 People are really dragging TS b/c the images from the new video seem to copy Beyoncé in Formation. The song has been bashed by critics, including the guardian, and by power ballad song writer Diane Warren. The album will be released on the anniversary of the date of the death of Kanye Wests mother, which is just insensitive, since the diss song is about Kimye. I refuse to link the video. But the lyrics cartoon video for the new TS single has an image of of a tall skinny cowboy in a suit and western hat, with a woman holding a gun like a Bond girl. Tom fans think that it's a sly reference to TH as Hank Williams in ISTL. As long as the general public doesn't pick up on it, there aren't any cruel songs about him on the album, and TH doesn't go on the same late night talk shows as TS does when promoting Thor, he can just relax as TS has to handle this complicated PR situation.

983 Name: Heynon : 2017-08-25 23:05 ID:vcHuIQwy

>>977, >>978, >>978 Oh I know that rag is ridiculous even for a tabloid. But to me, their article sounded so much like PR (or something lifted from one of the nannies' tumbles) that it amused me. I was thinking today that it almost sounded meant to provoke a "debunking" on Gossip Cop. And what did I find when googling Tom just now? A denial on Gossip Cop!

984 Name: Sosorry : 2017-08-25 23:47 ID:tW8pBDat

>>983 You were right on the money. Luke Windsor has officially learned how to contact gossip cop in a new emergency situation. Bless his heart! And I think TH's describing of TS not as an ex gf, but "as someone with whom he shares a history" is the new blow off line. Cold. Aggressively protective of TH's brand. Identical to what Team Beyoncé just did. Luke Windsor, congrats. Cheers to you, sir. Parabens. Keep it up. Keep up the fight.

985 Name: Unknown : 2017-08-26 18:30 ID:vdI6AIMH

Luke Windsor still sucks for approving TH to get with her in the first place. Both of them, TH and LW, knew of Swift's reputation with boyfriends yet they went along with it because Tom is an impulsive, impatient idiot that can't stand that his peers have been nominated for Oscars and have quality projects coming along compared to him.

Also, while I think TS is a sneaky whiny woman-child i doubt she release her album because of Kanye's mom death date. She mostly releases her albums around that time anyway. People are reaching far too much for their hate for her. The only thing she'll have against Kanye is songs against him, that's all, which she has done with the release single. I doubt Kanye's mom has anything to do with the equation.

986 Name: Sosorry : 2017-08-26 19:50 ID:tW8pBDat

>>981 Hmm...someone just said that what some Tom fans perceive is a Hank Williams based "cowboy" figure in the cartoon video for "Look What You Made Me Do", actually looks like a drawing of a 1940's film noir Sam Spade-like private investigator, and Swift would be the dangerous femme fatale with the gun. So in that case, Tom wouldn't be involved at all. I guess we'll see when she releases the video tomorrrrow.

987 Name: Heynon : 2017-08-27 21:44 ID:vcHuIQwy

>>984 What I find interesting about this GC denial is that it only denies that HL had a good source. Unless Team Tom's other denials to GC in the past, it doesn't call the actual content of the story ridiculous or use some similar putdown. I think that it, like the original story, are subtle shots across the bow to TS's team. The messages: Tom will continue to take the high road of only speaking well of her (in public, at least), which could make her look childish if she does do a diss song. Also, that his victim act (he'll be "crushed and hurt" if she does) is more appealing to the GP at this point, thanks to the GQ article, then hers is.

>>986 The film noir reference could be correct. I've seen a still from the full video with her made up like a dame from one of those movies (full lips, 1940s/50s hair, etc.)

Meanwhile, IRL, RadHam started tech rehearsals on Friday.

988 Name: Heynon : 2017-08-28 00:30 ID:vcHuIQwy

>>987 Unlike Team Tom's other denials to GC...

989 Name: Sosorry : 2017-08-28 01:08 ID:tW8pBDat

OMG! The male back up dancers in the real TS new video are all wearing the I heart TS tank tops in black, mid drift versions! She is so mean. Why does she need to reference Tom? He was ridiculed, not her? Cruel and unnecessary.

990 Name: Sosorry : 2017-08-28 01:12 ID:tW8pBDat

The effeminate male dancers in the TS music video wearing black midriff tank top shirt saying I heart TS.


991 Name: Sosorry : 2017-08-28 01:23 ID:tW8pBDat

>>989>>990 And she's selling I heart TS tops in the merchandise store as of now. Will Tom get a cut of that? No. Plus the video has a car chase scene where the paparazzi chase her to her death, just like Princess Diana, on the week of the death of Princess Diana! And she copied Whitney Houston and Beyoncé music videos where they stood next to versions of themselves, who are wearing costumes from all of their other music videos. I can't believe it.

994 Name: Heynon : 2017-08-28 01:58 ID:vcHuIQwy

>>989 etc - so much for Team Tom trying to steer her on to the high road.... This is all over the web and twitter now. Let's hope it dies down just as quickly so he can open RadHam in peace.

So evidently she's pissed that (a) the world mocked him for wearing that shirt, (b) he felt he had to explain it equals (c) disrespecting her because he wasn't proud to proclaim his love by wearing the squad uniform/official merch?

995 Name: Whatsinaname : 2017-08-28 02:13 ID:Efyef8Wk

Did Taylor Swift just call out Tom Hiddleston in her new video clip?,43929

We think so.

Following her surprise song release last week, the only thing Taylor Swift fans could look forward to more than the album (which is dropping on November 10) was the release of Look What You made Me Do’s video clip.

Premiered during the MTV Video Music Awards — which were hosted by Katy Perry, none the less — the video was everything and more. But perhaps one of the more subtle references, hidden between the Kanye West allusions, was Swift’s poke at former boyfriend Tom Hiddleston.

In a Formation-esque scene, Swift’s back-up dancers are seen wearing ‘I [heart] Taylor Swift’ T-shirts, eerily similar to the shirt Hiddleston wore at Swift’s 2016 Fourth of July party — yep, the one that made headlines for being as cringe-worthy as it was sweet.

So was it a dig, or are we reading too much into this? Considering the entire song is a play on Swift haters, we’re going to assume it’s the former.

996 Name: Heynon : 2017-08-28 02:15 ID:vcHuIQwy

The tumblr meltdown is going to be EPIC!

997 Name: Anon. : 2017-08-28 02:15 ID:yJqenzwX

The not being mocked Tom can't come to the phone right now...he's dead.

Silver lining: she didn't make him wear the midriff version.

Too bad Michael K isn't posting at the moment because this needs his commentary.

Taylor Swift Threw Major Shade At Tom Hiddleston In New Music Video & It's Intense

No one is safe on Taylor Swift's Reputation album. If you crossed her, she's coming for you. In true Swift fashion, ex-boyfriends are fair game. If you have followed every T. Swift relationship as closely as I have, you picked up a lot of subtle shade from the “Look What You Made Me Do” music video. If not, let me enlighten you. Tom Hiddleston in “Look What You Made Me Do” video seems non existent, but he's definitely there.

etc etc blah blah rehash blah blah

999 Name: Heynon : 2017-08-28 02:35 ID:vcHuIQwy

>>996, >>997 So on tumblr, the "toxics" are saying "told you so!" (That she'd go after him.) Meanwhile the nannies are claiming that it's meant to mock the media, not Tom. Too bad for them that every media outlet and random twitter person sees it as - a dig at Tom....

She didn't need to make him wear the midriff version - it was so many sizes too small that it showed his abs just fine! But really lucky for him that high heels weren't the right footwear for that party....
