Thread to talk about the actor Tom Hiddleston

I took a look at our favorite anon site over the weekend. He or she claims he has a second home. The rest was cryptic, back to implying a secret gf. At least that was my take on it.

404 Name: Anon : 2017-12-12 07:42 ID:A3rZwPke

>>403 my take on that was that the “second home of sorts” was referring to visiting the GF out of London. FWIW.

Snippet of Tom recording a Hamlet speech in this vid:

406 Name: Anon. : 2017-12-12 20:05 ID:A7UTnKjb

>>405 I can't watch the video where I am but let me take a stab in the dark: he looks like the most earnest man ever.

Was it for Rada pr? Is he holding a 🐶 while doing it?

407 Name: Anon : 2017-12-12 21:51 ID:A3rZwPke

>>406 I think something happened with the original link. They are both for this Dragon School audio poetry anthology, but the one with Tom is here:

Not too much earnestness actually. He seemed pretty comfortable with it. No dog but terrible beard and homeless person hair.

408 Name: Unknown : 2017-12-12 22:03 ID:GgM5jWxd

>>407 I'm glad i'm not the only one who finds that look of his terrible. Every fangirl who saw pix of him at the Thor Ragnarok premiere was saying how good he looked. He looked incredibly old with bed hair and a dad beard.

409 Name: Anon. : 2017-12-12 22:39 ID:5qdWEBEh

Who wants to bet this is the speech he 'gifted' to the newlyweds? Re-gifter! He's like a really crap Oprah: 'You get my Hamlet speech! You get my Hamlet speech! Everyone gets my Hamlet speech!'

I venture that he'll grab a few copies and they'll find their way under a few Christmas trees. Luke knows what he's getting! Olly's probably off the list, along with Tay, his American team and his speech writer.

410 Name: Heynon : 2017-12-12 23:57 ID:LfjWE7CD

>>406, >>407 Sorry about the link - I was trying not to use one that went through Tumblr, and didn't look closely at the result.

Interesting reading of the speech; I'd love to hear more of it. The hair doesn't bother me too much (at that length, mine would do much the same), but he'd look much tidier if he dealt with the patchy cheek fuzz! And the unflattering lighting doesn't help.

411 Name: Sosorry : 2017-12-15 14:55 ID:zSl8T0x0

And now TS's paid flunkie, broadway actor Todrick Hall, has stated that Tom turned TS into a hunchback like Quasimodo! Todrick alleges that TS would slump over and hunch every time he brought up Tom's name. Maybe this is b/c Tom and TS had a fauxmance which Tom managed to miraculouly extricate himself from, months ahead of schedule! Her new faux bf (who is sadly in the closet) is happy to hide in hoodies at airports, and color coordinate clothes with TS during hand holding pap walks as long as he books hollywood acting jobs. Hard to argue that Tom is a famehore when he's in London, performing Shakespeare for 2 roomfuls of people, MIA with his puppy, and not mentioning her name at all.

412 Name: Whatsinaname : 2017-12-15 18:38 ID:6LNXsSd5

>>411 I read that mess, where Hall never positively IDs who the ex is, which leaves it open to interpretation - TH or CH - the speculation of which seems designed to only hurt TH, but for what reason? As a bday present for TS? He has nothing coming up except Early Man.

413 Name: Anon. : 2017-12-15 19:59 ID:EdYX0/An

>>411 Hahahah. I eagerly await the GC denials. 'No, Taylor does not slump her shoulders. Miss Swift's shoulders and posture are second to none.' The public donation to an osteoporosis charity will follow.

Just more proof that Tayto was a Mess-o and Fail-o. Your pop-up relationship didn't manage to avert peoples' attentions from your lies and hypocrisy. Better luck next time, Taylor.

It's not hard to argue that TH is a famewhore. He was one: Tayto. Vestiges linger: pup-stroll. For me, the jury is still out regarding whether lessons have been learned.

OTT: a recent new hire is in the office next to mine. Her laugh is like nails on a blackboard and EVERYTHING is funny.

414 Name: Anon. : 2017-12-15 20:08 ID:EdYX0/An

We should open up bets for when he'll actually announce something or IF he'll announce something. Is Tumblr still using the 'Marvel Excuse,' I.e., he's been too busy with Loki to do another film?

Will he show at the site of his most recent triumph/PR disaster: the GGs? Do previous winners usually present? Attend?

Was Kong nominated for anything?

415 Name: Sosorry : 2017-12-16 00:34 ID:zSl8T0x0

>>413 Yep. I should have said that Tom was not the sole famewhore of the situation. He did not use and abuse the delicate flower that Taylor Swfit pretends to be for the public. HS was a mutual use, and Baby Joe has next.

>>414 I don't see any GG nominations for King Kong. But Tom could win a Teen Choice Award for best Actor in a Sci-Fi film to add to his awards cache. Dear me. We've gone from Olivier award best newcomer, and Golden Globe best actor limited series back to teen awards like MTV and Teen Choice. Hmmm...Must process this.

Tom seems to be losing by almost ten percentage points to Shawn Mendes in the GQ Most Stylish Man of 2017. Voting is still going on, if anyone is interested. Tom made it to the finals before he lost to Prince Federer, last year.

419 Name: Heynon : 2017-12-18 23:41 ID:LfjWE7CD

421 Name: Whatsinaname : 2017-12-19 01:02 ID:4yc7dJs8

Hard to muster up any concern over stuff like this when he seems to be MIA. His out of sight, out of mind campaign is successful.

422 Name: Heynon : 2017-12-19 01:33 ID:LfjWE7CD

Shows how desperate some Tumblrinas are getting.

Maybe his campaign has been a little too successful, with no new project announcements?

424 Name: Sosorry : 2017-12-20 20:48 ID:zSl8T0x0

Despsite being MIA from the world of pop culture, TH has made it to the finals of GQ's Most Stylish of 2017 versus Harry Styles. Tom is beating Harry by only 1.8%. Harry fauxmanced with Swift long ago, but he co-starred in the golden-globe nominated Dunkirk movie and he has a brand new album out this year, whereas Tom starred in Hamlet (sadly performing it for only a few drawing rooms full of people) and he only has an animated film coming out this winter. So dollars to donuts, GQ must be hoping that Harry will win.

425 Name: Sosorry : 2017-12-21 18:10 ID:zSl8T0x0

Apparently Taffy Akner, the authoress of TH's GQ article about heartbreak and bolognese sauce, is still using Tom for clicks on twitter. She urged voters to vote for Tom over Harry Styles for 2017's Most Stylish Man. Tom just won, btw. Craziness.

Taffy really needs to stop. She's sounding like unrequited lovestruck teenager everytime she mentions Tom. It's embarrassing.

>>425, >>427 And it wasn't just one tweet this time. She is starting to sound like she drank the Kool-Aid.

>>428 Are you sure you want something that would make you quite that delusional? "Most in demand by people who want to keep using him to get clicks," maybe!

430 Name: Unknown : 2017-12-22 04:21 ID:GBWb8MwQ

She has a IV drip straight into her vein with nothing but Tom's Kool-Aid. A grown woman, whose married with kids btw, acting like a lovestruck teen.

Tom must think Taffy and him are friends, or that Taffy has a shot with him since she loves that the Daily Fail mistook her for his new girlfriend LOL!

No one in their right mind after that embarrassing GQ interview would consider her a friend. Then again, Tom isn't in his right mind. Hasn't been for a very long while.

431 Name: BB33 : 2017-12-23 02:49 ID:M/YSpk3g

So Tom's been in two of the biggest box office films this year. He won a Golden Globe for a third production and got great reviews in Hamlet. Only in the minds of the very insane and deluded is he not an in-demand actor. You are all butthurt bitches who can't get over him blocking you on Twitter.

433 Name: Anon. : 2017-12-23 06:39 ID:bnRPzX0F

The phrase 'in-demand' in the film industry means people want to work with you. Since you are in-demand, people send you scripts, they ask for meetings and pitch projects to you, they seek you out. Out of that absolute avalanche of material and work - you're in-demand after all - you take your pick of the best and most promising. You secure work. That work is then announced and produced. Besides for some brief Marvel filming and voice work, Tom has announced nothing and produced nothing in 2017 except a three week run of a play for his alma mater and mentor.

Compare the IMDb pages of TH and James Franco. One is in-demand, the other not so much.

434 Name: Anonon : 2017-12-23 13:20 ID:+NWD6jMf

I popped in to say merry Christmas and faecal matter has splattered the board again. Oh the irony of throwing around the words 'insane' and 'deluded'. I don't think you understand that Hamlet wasn't officially reviewed. He may as well have performed it in his mothers loungeroom. I'm not on twitter, never have been. Keep fighting the good fight, I'm sure he will thank you personally.

>>433 I recall the members of this board were alone in predicting the magnitude of the effect on his career. Admittedly I never thought he would fall quite so far, it really has been quite a drought. Its possible he has chosen not to take on new projects, that Tayto broke him and he has selected a lengthy rehabilitation through Branagh, a puppy and an invisibility cloak. As a workaholic with Hollywood stars in his eyes I do not believe for a second he would have refused choice projects in preference to an animation and a school play.

I wonder what the new year will bring. Will we even care?
Lets hope he comes out of hiding with a wife and two year old.
Keep on poncing TH, don't ever change.

Hopefully he is surrounded by friends and family who love him but moreso I hope everyone here is over the silly season, even the unhinged lurkers, you seem like you need lots of love and support. Merry Christmas all xxx

435 Name: Unknown : 2017-12-23 16:24 ID:xAnvcqet

Tom is a one-hit wonder, lets face it. I'd be surprise if we hear about him after his Loki stint is officially over. You have better Brit actors like Tom Hardy securing roles left and right without lowering themselves to be tabloid fodder.

Instead of finding the humor in Hiddleswift, he instead takes himself too seriously and becomes a recluse. You would think for someone whose fans declare he's this great thespian and went to the most prestigious acting schools in England that he could fake and joke about his Hiddleswift stint even if it personally bothered him. But instead he takes himself so seriously that he hides out with this sour expression on his face everytime he's photographs and "woe is me" stunt he's trying to do with the GQ interview and puppy walks.

All of his fans were surprised that he's suddenly so serious and not as cheerful as before. Why is it a surprise? It just makes it more obvious that his so called "personality" from before Hiddleswift was a ruse and when things didn't go his way he became almost cold in a way.

Also his Twitter and his other social media accounts are barely used by him. He only uses them to advertise his projects which I'm sure the studios already have a good handle on what with the millions of dollars that go in advertising. He doesn't interact with anyone but his famous actor friends and other then that he's boring. He only uses his social media account when he messes up and passive aggressively blames others but himself on why things go wrong for him. Is anyone really surprised at this point that he dated Taylor Swift. He is the male version of her but without the money, awards, clout and fame.

436 Name: BB33 : 2017-12-23 16:56 ID:BWYjUFQx

The opposite of hate is indifference. You people care. You care entirely too much what happens in his life and his career. You can't let him go. You spend endless hours here celebrating every vicious comment, every negative item, stewing in your own venom. Thread after thread after thread, comment after comment after comment. You are here constantly. It is you who has no life other than to somehow try and do what exactly? Surely you must see that there is no other thread let alone repeated ones for anyone other than Tom. That is obsession, not indifference. If there was a rehab for this sort of thing, I'd suggest that you all book yourselves in pronto. Instead, might I suggest you get the mental health treatment you so obviously need. Losing some weight (I guarantee you there is not a skinny one amongst you) and a makeover would also do you a world of good. Oh, and leave your house once in a decade would be helpful too. I'd wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year but your stewing venom and bile shows me that you've never been Happy or Merry in your miserable lives.

437 Name: Couch Potato : 2017-12-23 17:00 ID:ca3QaaRW

The irony of people wishing merry xmas while spouting venom about another human being. Have you all asked Santa that he would finally disappear from the planet for good? After all he is such a low life. No surprise the old posters don't come here anymore, they are probably embarrassed at the cesspit this place has become.

438 Name: Anon : 2017-12-23 20:51 ID:KwmLS28+

Well, I suppose it wouldn’t be Christmas without a couple of grinches. They might want to think what it says about them that they have never posted here before, but deigned to stop by for the first time ever on 23 December in order to spout vitriolic hate about a board they claim to despise but have plainly read.

Anyone who has actually read the boards will recall that anonsy left because she was almightily fucked off at TH for participating in a famewhorey fake romance. The real Couch Potato, who set up this board, left because TH wasn’t really doing anything of interest any more. Insofar as they still have views on TH, I doubt they’d be materially different from the ones of which the grinches so disapprove.

The Real Couch Potato set this board up back in 2013. I knew her well. She was an easygoing soul but she hated two things above all: 1) people who pretended to be her; and 2) trolls who showed up to spout abuse at the regulars. So in the spirit of the Real Couch Potato: if you don’t like it here, fuck the fuck off, and never come back.

439 Name: Anonon : 2017-12-23 21:49 ID:+NWD6jMf

Personally, I’m not interested in stirring up any hornet’s nest of speculation as to who the new visitors might be - any debate on that subject is all too easily used against the board by those who visit here and then carry tales elsewhere. I don’t want the attention on this board.

FWIW I don’t think that the queen bees of tumblr visit here - why would they when they have an established circle over there, of which they are the centre?

446 Name: Couch Potato : 2017-12-27 22:58 ID:C14XtoBm

I don't want them coming here either. Let them have Tumblr. Here we can have honest discussion about Tom's vanishing career.

447 Name: Anon. : 2017-12-28 20:36 ID:41IGLxhF

Very telling that TH's knight in shining armour, rather than rationally disputing my argument concerning his status as an actor, instead chose to go with the time-honored personal attack. Why argue with reason and facts when you can call someone fat and anti-social? That doesn't invalidate your argument at all.

'The opposite of hate is indifference.' You can't even get the quote right. That's because it's been filtered to you through TH's verbal, pseudo-philosophical incontinence. Try reading the book it came from. Quotes tend to have more meaning when directly from the author and in context, rather than from an actor trying to score PR points.

If we care too much (having not left our houses in the past decade), what are you? You've come to a board to which you do not contribute to stand like Cocles on the bridge and defend a man you do not know. You have attempted to diminish verbally strangers while trying to prove your opinions. You know what they say about finger pointing.

As to indifference, I think we are headed in that direction, sadly. This board did brisk, fun, comic business during TH's heyday and during EO and Tayto. We had fun and filled up threads quickly. We got to 'know' each other as well. Now the only topics to discuss usually involve Tayto, superhero movies and online polls about his clothes (cf. previous argument about his in demand status).

Merry and much belated Christmas, y'all.

Did everyone get what they wanted from Santa? The in-laws gave us the usual: a very much appreciated check toward our mortgage. My parents gave us a wine and food box subscription. I sold my hair to buy hubby a watch chain...just kidding. He got new gloves, I got a pair of earrings. We were awful parents as junior got nothing new. We wrapped some of his toys so he could enjoy the experience of unwrapping things, which proved to be a hit with him. We're thinking we can keep that going for two more years. He liked unwrapping and lying under the tree and looking at the lights.

449 Name: Heynon : 2017-12-30 15:30 ID:LfjWE7CD

>>448 Merry/Happy belated Christmas and Boxing Day, and early Happy New Year, everyone!

Love the O. Henry reference - another reason this board rocks is that we get stuff like that. We had a small Christmas this year, which is fine; mostly books for me, with a few small surprises.

Is Junior at the age yet where he enjoys the boxes more than the toys?

I do have a few small TH gleanings that I'll post when I have time.

450 Name: Anon : 2017-12-30 22:48 ID:WOTS2uSz


Merry belated Christmas everyone.

I hope you all had a good time. I’m glad Baby Anon. enjoyed his unwrapping. You have the right idea there I think. It all felt very grimly commercial in the UK this year. Maybe I am getting old. We went for the “one gift each” approach. A handbag for me and a home charging point for Dr Anon’s electric car (the cost of which greatly offsets any savings on petrol, I am here to tell you!). We spent 5 days with my widowed father in law. His gift was me cooking every meal and him not having to live on microwave meals for a change.

Now in the countryside, fairly near to Casa Hiddleston Mama as usual. I will keep my eyes peeled, though I believe he usually spends NY in London if twitter is to be believed.

Happy Christmas, Happy New Year, and best wishes for 2018. I had a quiet Christmas, where my son came over for a couple of days. He got me some much needed throws for these cold days and nights. What I need is to get these drafty windows taken care of. Then I had a date with a new guy to see del Toro's "The Shape of Water." I recommend you all check it out. New Guy and I went out again Wednesday, and then again last night for the New Year's Eve. I guess I can say everything is going swimmingly.

Belated Happy Christmas, and Happy New Year to all! Just returned from the holidays with my family. And apparently there was a Tom sighting in London by an Italian girl on facebook, yesterday morning. She saw TH on a coffee run while she was eating breakfast, and she commented that he looked cute and available, whatever that means. Now, just hoping for a project announcement.

Apparently Tom didn't make the UK GQ 50 best dressed men of 2018 list by the magazine, despite being voted the American GQ Most Stylish Man of 2018 by the fans. Interessante.

>>452 Apparently the original word in "cute and" was "disponibile," which can also mean "approachable."

455 Name: Heynon : 2018-01-03 02:15 ID:LfjWE7CD

Bit o' snark from the Guardian when mentioning Early Man? "Our paleolithic power couple prepare to unite the tribe against an evil predator, Lord Nooth, voiced, perhaps inevitably, by Tom Hiddleston." Inevitably because it's a villain role? Inevitably because he's been consigned to comic-book/animated movies?

456 Name: Elvie : 2018-01-03 02:20 ID:B/xQlxFm

TWH fan for 6 months and naive to how celebrity-Ness works. After finding multiple blogs/threads I'm now enlightened and now kinda heartbroken, disappointed and disillusioned. He's human, a faulted human male. My head is spinning, what to believe, what's true, what's B.S. Drugs, alcohol, s&m, gay/bi/tri, horndog, liar, exhibitionist, pretender, moody asshole. I'd like to go back to what I first believed, charming, gentleman, kind, articulate, honest, clean, enigma. I do feel bad for what's happened to his career and hope the best for him.

>>451 Three days on the hop? Woohoo. I can only dream of such a romantic social life! We stayed in on NYE like two (three) hermits. 'Too damn cold' was our joint opinion.

>>449 He wasn't really bothered with the unwrapping or the toys but he's in love with the tree. He's still staring at the lights like a zombie on LSD. We're a little afraid of what will happen when we take it down. Mother dearest: Suck it up. It can't be Christmas all the time, kid.

>>450 Usually men who can't cook or run a household remarry quickly. My grandfather did. He had every meal at the local restaurant for three years before finding someone new. Did you at least try to give him some lesson? This is how you boil the egg. This is how you make bolognese!

>>453 Any comment from Yours Truly after she crowed about the public vote? Didn't think so. But what do those people at GQ know about style, certain fans will say.

>>455 Say what you will about our status as fans, the Guardian officially hates him so whatever they meant by 'inevitably,' it's bound to be a dig.

>>456 Welcome!! Consider the source, would be my advice in sorting fiction from non. In the great pic 'n mix of human behavior, he's probably many of those and none of the others.

>>456 Welcome! I'm still a relatively new (since Aug. 2016) TH fan and I can relate to what you're experiencing. I also felt really confused/conflicted the more I read about him, but eventually I learned to ignore the way-out-there, extreme opinions and settle somewhere in the middle. And I also hope that his career comes out of the current apparent slump.

Hi all! Not sure how to drive this thread yet to tag responders. Thank you for the kind responses compared to other thread sites which were either vicious or oblivious. I prob should have called myself Clueless since TH is the only celeb I've ever dogged, so please bear with my questions.
Why is it such a big deal over who's dating who, admitting it, keeping it secret ( and I just heard of relationship contracts) wow.
Bigger celebs have been out n about with multiple partners and the world kept spinning....

I wasn't a lurker here. As soon as I read the first page of threads I signed on cuz this is like my kind of Disney ride..up, down, fast slow but it doesn't kill you...does it make you puke!??!!!
I first met TH on CP. If my ex of 30 years ever looked at me like he looked at Edith in the toy room attic...we'd still be married and in bed..sigh. I'm 55 freaking yrs old, so a little embarrassed at crushing. I live in hell...I mean Phoenix. 4 months of 72 degrees then endless months of 120. My second meet was Istl which I liked..grew up on country music, and he did do a good job coming from a whole diff environment. Then I met Hal/ pretty...but had to use the closed caption to understand wth they were saying. Plus don't hear so good...what?
Then I did the Thors/aven...HR...OLLA...and endless interviews. And my fave TNM. Stop rewind repeat part 4. Waiting for Rag to come out on DVD. I don't like funny...happy to see since starting at 1st TH thread now on 5 that anon. And cp still posting. They make me laugh. Was on tumblr but sick of unicorns farting fairy dust from exploding ovaries but good pics. And I tried
Not a lot to ad as far as sightings but do have a sliver of humor. My niece and I do have a pact and a plot to kidnap Jensen for her, TH for me....if it pans out I might share. Happy New Year! (I was a vet tech 25 yrs if you have dog/cat/goat/horse???s)

Allegedly Tom pulled out of buying this 4 million pound country pile in Wiltshire, which he had viewed 3 times, and which is owned by comedian Michael McIntyre. Friends say that this was b/c the deal didn't include some of the furniture from the house. Do friends talk to the media? I hope not. Anyway, the DM mentions the TS fauxmance, the heart tank top, etc. They even put the word romance in quotes to question its validity. Ouch. Can't wait to see pics of Tom attending the Early Man premiere coming up.

>>466 Scooped again - you're good! The DM also loves to run unflattering pics of Tom with their stories, don't they?

If anyone missed it, the UK premiere for EM is this Sun., the 14th, and the 3 principals are confirmed as attending.

471 Name: Heynon : 2018-01-05 01:24 ID:LfjWE7CD

>>460 I think the reasons that it's a big deal about who he dates vary. For some, he's their Internet boyfriend, and they get distressed when he's linked with anyone. For others, it's interesting only for the question of whether the relationship is real, fake for publicity, or some combination. And every reason in between.

472 Name: Elvie : 2018-01-05 01:39 ID:B/xQlxFm

>>471thanks for the info. Poor TH..another kick to the noogies.
No new BFI building and no house. He needs some happy stuff.
Another unmentionable site says he has some jobs in the works but couldn't say what of course til it was a done deal. I hope so.
So someone saw him yesterday? I wonder how he really looked. Beardy T is ok if it's groomed, but bushy hair/beard screams feral wild man that's losing hope (or just lost comb and razor....)

473 Name: Sosorry : 2018-01-05 04:58 ID:zSl8T0x0

Brutal slam on TH by the Express! I was looking up information about dreamy Grantchester, Happy Valley, and War and Peace star James Norton, who incidentally is Tom's RADA alumni mentee. Reportedly James can't ever get Tom on the phone (Tom has been quite busy with Hamlet and trying to rejuvenate his career, though.) And the Express states that after watching James Norton in his new show, McMafia, James could be the next Bond, as long as he avoids wearing a "tiny, tight white I Heart TS vest! " Dear me. Tom is MIA, and the UK press just won let that crazy PR summer go.

474 Name: Anon. : 2018-01-05 06:05 ID:w870LLGI

Hmmm. In the same way I felt/still feel odd about the dog, I now feel unsure about the house. That is a large outlay, even if a mortgage is involved. But I'm thinking more about the upkeep. On that sort of home it would be massive. If he didn't have the inclination to employ/pay for his erstwhile lady maid, how is he going to feel about gardeners, pool people, driveway people, tennis court people, unless he's going to be mowing, cleaning, spreading gravel himself! That's a lot of money for a man who doesn't seem to be working much, and really didn't have any huge paydays with his other films. I'd guess Kong was his biggest pay check to date. What, $5m, $10m, maybe even $20m (that seems unlikely)? Then tax, agent fees, etc.

If I'm planning on working long hours on set, I'm not getting a dog. If I'm not going to be working, I'm not buying a house.

But I was wrong about the dog so I guess I could be wrong about this. My waters must be off. If he wanted it, the idea of settling down could be on his mind. That's a lot of room for a single man. Perfect for a harem though!!

Welcome Elvie! Enjoy the board.

>>466 Good spot Sosorry.
>>474 All of this. If it hadn’t been for the earlier story, that he was looking (which was a while ago, in another paper and thus not obviously a setup to make this sound truer) I would not have believed a word. This really isn’t an obvious choice for a single man, especially for one who is not really into interior design. Not is it the house for someone without a reasonably secure disposable income - though TH is someone who doesn’t care for his clothes, so maybe he isn’t focussed on issues like upkeep.

Two thoughts:

1) the only part that rings true is the desire to buy Macintyre’s furniture. I am sure that was only a pretext for the sale falling though, but the desire to buy it sounds like him.
2) this tells us that TH sees himself as part of the uber trendy Cotswolds set ( - which may say something about how he sees himself. One of what we called at college the “beautiful people” - moneyed, good looking, a bit druggy, thought they were dead gorgeous and led the herd. Hung around the pool table in the college bar talking to other beautiful people about how beautiful they were. I do recall he was spotted at a hip Cotswolds hotel about this time last year.

476 Name: Anon. : 2018-01-06 06:05 ID:5qdWEBEh

I wonder if he wants someone to think he's one of the beautiful, Cotswolds dwelling people with major bank. Someone of the female persuasion. 'Yes I fauxmanced, yes I wore that shirt...but look at my manshion!'

Maybe he's given up on acting and is now a dog sitter/waker who flips houses.

Now for another edition of Show or No.

Event: Golden Globes
Date: Sunday
Record: 1 win out of 1 nom
Cringe Rating: 8.5/10 (2017)

Show or No?

Also: Beard or No?

478 Name: Elvie : 2018-01-06 15:57 ID:B/xQlxFm

Betting no show. Beard and hair too big to get out of house. Caveman furs still on live bear and Thor is using Ts club in place of mumu. He's currently being groomed but it will take til Early Man premier to get thru the hair.

479 Name: Heynon : 2018-01-07 20:40 ID:LfjWE7CD

>>477 I’m hoping no show. No real reason for him to be there publicly, and too much risk of him saying something dopey with the focus on anti-harassment.

480 Name: Sosorry : 2018-01-07 20:45 ID:6XUhSq3g

>>478>>477 Tom was seen running this morning on Hampstead Heath! So I guess he's a no show for the golden globe awards tonight. I vote that he maintains his goatee. His War Horse Press Interviews looked very nice.

481 Name: Heynon : 2018-01-07 21:02 ID:LfjWE7CD

The Telegraph, ostensibly discussing James Norton for Bond, spends a chunk of time dissing TH and how he blew his chance thanks to Tayto:

Bond may haunt his press coverage as much as TS will....

482 Name: Sosorry : 2018-01-08 21:37 ID:zSl8T0x0

Apparently Tom got the Early Man french accent gig b/c Nick Park saw him do the impressions of DeNiro, etc. on the Graham Norton show in 2015. Okay...

483 Name: Elvie : 2018-01-09 01:16 ID:B/xQlxFm

I just finished all the Hiddleston threads. WOW. Some of you were are so spot on about some of the happenings. Made me shake my head a lot at TH. And I also laughed hard enough a few times to threaten undie change....old bladder easily startled by sudden laughter, coughing, sneezing, startlingly and 15 lb fat ass cats jumping on it.

So I guess he's to make an appearance on the 14th for EM premiere.

484 Name: Sosorry : 2018-01-09 06:44 ID:zSl8T0x0

Sad that TH is no longer active on twitter since his phenomenal director in Crimson Peak, Guillermo Del Toro, won a Golden Globe Award for his new film The Shape of Water, last night! I only wish that CP had had a better script, and that it had been as fully realized as TSOW was. Fingers crossed that Tom magically has a new project to announce on the 14th at the Early Man premiere.

>>481 This article mentions that the Night Manager 2 plans have been a struggle. Hmm...I'm glad about that, I think. And since the Sun is now claiming that Tom's RADA mentee, actor James Norton is being touted as the next Bond, I will assume that Norton's PR is driving this Bond BS, much like Tom's PR did last year, and other newspapers use it for clicks. Anyone who wants to be the next Bond please learn to chill out, and shut up!

485 Name: Sosorry : 2018-01-09 22:55 ID:zSl8T0x0

An article exploring why ALL of the Marvel leading players, including Tom, can't open a movie at the box office in their efforts outside of Marvel. And it trashes all of their movies outside of Marvel! The said that not even Hiddleston could save Kong: Skull Island from King Kong tropes, and that although he never delivers an uninteresting performance of on camera, that what Tom is best at is Loki. I disagree. Most of the movies they criticized had terrible scripts! And a couple of the actors like Chris Evans, Evangeline Lilly and, and Chris Pratt are just not verstile actos who are capable of multi-layered performances.

486 Name: Sosorry : 2018-01-09 23:12 ID:zSl8T0x0

Oh no! 95 year old Stan Lee, former president and CEO of Marvel and co-creator of Iron Man, Spiderman, and X-men, has been accused of groping his nurses, harassing them, and requesting oral sex in the shower. My dear. His pic w Tom is below.

487 Name: Heynon : 2018-01-10 02:04 ID:LfjWE7CD

>>485 I think that article is all over the place. For example, it gives some examples of non-MCU movies in which Hemsworth did well, then picks one in which he didn't. Another: their argument barely stands up with, say, Jeremy Renner, who generally has an excellent track record away from Marvel.

And while KSI had its many, many problems, Tom could hardly have saved it given his whittled-down role in the end.

It would have been a better, more interesting argument to discuss whether or not the actors' Marvel-movie fans will follow them over to any non-comic book movie, good or bad. Or if there's something about being an MCU actor that causes them to pick bad projects outside Marvel.

488 Name: Sosorry : 2018-01-10 02:27 ID:zSl8T0x0

>>487 I agree. And, I think that the industry and the public's obsession w franchises doesn't allow audiences to become but so loyal to an actor's career choices. Leo D and Denzel W are the only sure things at the box office. And even Denzel just faltered. Plus movies have become very expensive.

And apparently the BBC really really seems to be trying to keep up interest in The Night Manager 2, expected maybe in 2019?! And what Cosmoplitan magazine knows about a sequel, is nothing! No plot, no cast guarantees, just a writer who is on staff to write it. Ha ha!

489 Name: Heynon : 2018-01-10 02:49 ID:LfjWE7CD

>>488 We'd likely do better in predicting TNM2 by throwing darts randomly at a multi-year calendar!

490 Name: Anon. : 2018-01-10 05:13 ID:mm1nlOp8

>>484 Rather than announce a new project I'm afraid he's going to be wearing a sandwich board reading: Will Act for Money.

It may be that these sites that are saying he's working on confirming new projects have some insider info but I doubt it. More likely wishful thinking on their part or a gamble on the obvious answer. I mean at this point he must have something in the works, right?

491 Name: Anon. : 2018-01-10 05:19 ID:mm1nlOp8

496 Name: Anon : 2018-01-10 21:48 ID:A3rZwPke

After the GG no show, I have been wondering what is actually going on with The Drought. There were some there who had not been nominated and were not associated with nominated projects. I find it hard to believe as last year’s winner that he could not score an invite if he wanted one. So what is going on?

Is he just taking a voluntary self-imposed break after several years working back to back? I find this hard to believe. Everything I have seen of TH suggests to me that he is fiercely ambitious and loves the limelight.

Has he become such box office poison that there are no projects? Again, I find this slightly hard to believe. He got good reviews on Hamlet, and behaved himself pretty well on the TR press junkets. So many actors (not necessarily superstars) have been forgiven much more heinous behaviour - drugs, sexual harassment, tantrums etc. I can’t believe he is the only one not getting a pass, even if he was too fat and too tan on the TR set (as indicated by Anonon).

Is he just too picky about what’s on offer? Wants another tentpole and is rejecting reasonable smaller projects?

Has he been advised/ordered by his management to calm it down for a year or 18 months while memories fade, perhaps including making no project announcements even if he has them. Does this mean he has sacked his West Coast publicity team - seems likely as I find it hard to believe that they would espouse the “less is more” approach.

Has he had some kind of nervous breakdown in the early part of 2017, out of which he only really emerged at the time of the Hamlet project? I have to say, I look at the (lack of) personal grooming and the clothes and compare with how he obviously loved looking good during the ISTL junket (and before at events like ComicCon when he wore his own choices) and I do wonder about this. What would you say to a friend who has not cut his hair or shaved in 2 months and wears the same clothes every day.

497 Name: Elvie : 2018-01-11 01:24 ID:B/xQlxFm

Is he maybe involving himself in the rehab of the BFI house since the bid for the new one fell through?
Geez, I just feel bad for the guy.

498 Name: Heynon : 2018-01-11 02:48 ID:LfjWE7CD

>>494 The impression I get from Tumblr is that MMP on LSA is dropping hints to that effect. (I don't follow LSA anymore; the tone got to me.)

>>496 For the GG, I noticed that a lot of the non-nom'd/
unassociated presenters had soon-to-be released projects - for example, Hemsworth was introduced with a reference to the upcoming Horse Soldiers. Tom's role in EM wouldn't merit much of a mention, so maybe no invite (or push from his PR team to get him one).

Re The Drought: I agree it's unlikely that this is a voluntary break. Especially because it's hard for actors to get back into the game (get cast) if they're away from it for too long. (And for that reason I doubt his management is keeping him quiet for this long - even if they wanted him a bit off the radar, there still should be a small steady drip to keep him visible. But there weren't even any interviews for RadHam, except one in an Italian fashion mag.)

I also think it's hard to believe he wouldn't be getting any offers at this point. I'm leaning towards the offers just aren't what he wants/what his team is telling him to hold out for. Just a guess, but I suspect the offers are for indie/non-tentpole ensemble parts, when he wants either another big franchise or a plum indie lead (his Imitation Game). Good luck with that - there's just too much good competition in his age range/type.

Don't know about a nervous breakdown; I don't see Branagh entrusting the RADA fundraising kickoff to someone who was just coming out of one. Depression, on the other hand.... would at least explain the recent IDGAF approach to his appearance. And/or he's doing some deep navel-gazing trying to figure out what he really wants out of his life at this point.

Mildly interesting that after the early spate of puppy sightings reported, there's been nothing on that front recently.

499 Name: Anon. : 2018-01-11 04:07 ID:DAxiZXkP

>>495 I thought Elvie had mentioned these up thread.

The post-Tayto drought is unique. Even his previous drought was because projects fell through, I think (it was before I entered the fandom). Still he was able to secure others. This one seems to stem from a complete lack of non-Marvel projects. I fear that, after several years of being the lead in his recent non-Marvel roles, he may think smaller, ensemble parts are beneath him. (I can't help but wonder if he only took the Early Man role because Redmayne's in it. If ER signed on, then it wasn't beneath TH to do it.) Turning things down is of course his right but it's going to drastically cut down on the roles he'll have on offer.

His 'brand' took a hit in 2016/early 2017. That would have been enough to send a slightly narcissistic and greatly ambitious man into a tailspin. I don't think he's had anything close to an actual breakdown; he was fine (if subdued) during Kong promo and was compos mentis enough to agree to the Rada play and prepare for it.

I don't think the American team and TH have parted ways for one reason: Yours Truly. She appeared when the American team came on the scene. If her services are part of his PR package, okay that's a perk. If he's paying for her services as an individual, all is lost!
