Torilla pics of Hiddleston strolling among his fans in Shanghai, promoting IW. Luke is there, too. He's wearing the uniform w the Hamlet boot and his torn Nike run cap. I guess their plan is to show how popular Tom is with his fan base and avoid all spontaneous press interviews. TS is releasing the Getaway Car song about the fauxmance to coordinate w the release of IW.

707 Name: Heynon : 2018-04-18 22:25 ID:N+5QDef3

>>706 That running cap isn't just torn - the brim looks chewed! Maybe the plan is to keep the focus on what he's wearing so people discuss that rather than anything else? (He wore that misfire of the ill-fitting greige suit again in Shanghai. Oy.)

In the second set (for those who haven't clicked through yet), he's so focused on the fans that he almost gets caught by the revolving door behind him. But his fan focus isn't "extra" the way it used to be most times.

There's what I think is a rather sweet vid of him surprising some Loki cosplayers at the London fan event: He's goofy behind the set, but very focused on the cosplayers while on stage with them rather than trying to pull focus to himself. Celebitchy has a reaction (not too snarky in the article - the comments are another matter):

Oh dear. Apparently, none of the IW cast members was such an SOB to an interviewer this weekend at the Marvel press junket, that the studio officially apologized and pulled the "the cards" (the tapes)of the interview, to endure that there wouldn't be a record. B/c Tom is one of the more well known faces in Avengers, celebitchy used his face in the header to the article, although they say in the article that it could not have been Tom, since he is so unfailingly polite to journalists as a matter of practice. The guessing game to name the rude Avenger, is on!

>>713 It's Anthony Mackie. Tom is too much of a suck up, he wants everyone to love him.

715 Name: Heynon : 2018-04-23 22:31 ID:N+5QDef3

At around 2:25 in this vid, the interviewer asks Tom if he can do an impression of one of his cast-mates. Tom demurs, saying "That's all in the rear-view mirror; I'm not allowed to do that anymore."

Which may explain why Luke has been hovering throughout this press tour.

In other news, for those of us in the US, Tom will be on Jimmy Kimmel with some more of the cast tomorrow night (Tues.)

724 Name: Heynon : 2018-04-29 20:53 ID:N+5QDef3

>>720 I have to agree with Anon and the article in >>721 - it doesn't really sound any closer to being made than it has for years. And Ivory's new desire for 3D probably isn't helping. That would make the production much more expensive, would require movie chains to give up 3D showings of more profitable movies, and might even keep it out of the art houses. I doubt it could bring in enough non-Shakespeare/Hiddelston fans to compensate. He should consider staging it for NTL broadcast instead.

An article about a prominent UK casting director that I found interesting: . It doesn't mention Tom (though I could see him being the 'eminent actor at a dinner..., whose opening line to [her] was: “Why never me?” '). What do you think of her theory that "acting outside your natural class is unbelievably hard, as the actor isn’t in automatic possession of the array of tics and expressions that betray background. And while you can act up a class, you can’t, or at least shouldn’t ever, act down"? It could help explain why Tom has been limited to certain role. She is casting a remake of Shogun,though, and if she's looking for a Richard Chamberlain type, we know someone who's likely available....

Mismatched socks photos now on Torrilla! Bobby looks very glossy and well. If these were indeed taken last Saturday, it was a very warm day in London (Royal wedding day!!) and I am mystified why Tom would go out with a puffa jacket. He must really feel the cold!

732 Name: Sossorry : 2018-05-23 15:51 ID:zSl8T0x0

Tortilla pics. Is Tom wearing new black Nike sneakers finally? How did he, as a serious distance runner, wear older sneakers for so long? Not great for ankle support. Are those new shades? Tom seems to wear his dress socks or whatever long socks he finds in his collection instead to run, instead of athletic socks. I don't quite get this...Are those new shades? Bobby is so big! Good to see him out, though!

Apparently Tom visited a children's hospital in London. What a worthwhile way to spend time, and it's wise of him not to build the visit into a big self-focused PR push for himself, with pics.

Apparently Charles Cumming, spy fiction author, has been hired to help screenwriter Matthew Orton write TNM 2 teleplay. Not a fan of sequels, generally. I guess the BBC really wants this to happen.

>>744 If this is the next project for TH they better get writing!

On a sort of related note, I saw that Nina Gold, about whom Heynon posted that long read article, was the casting director for Patrick Melrose, starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Since he and TH are friends, I really did start to wonder if Heynon was right when she joked that “why is it never me?” anecdote being him!! I could just see them sitting down to dinner chez Cumby in Tufnell Park and him buttonholing her.....

746 Name: Heynon : 2018-06-02 15:16 ID:N+5QDef3

>>744, >>745 Not sure if it's good news or bad that they hired a second writer. Otherwise the good (for TH's employment, at any rate) news is that the project is still alive; the bad is that it won't be happening any time soon.

>>745 In reading a sample from the English Public School book I referenced in >>735, the author writes "It has been said of Eton that it encourages aspirations, with every stone imbued with the motto 'Why not me?'" I could see Tom earnestly asking that question of a major casting director. (

Tom was seen walking his puppy, Bobby! The poster casually burned TS in her tweet.

A compilation of Tom pictures from a BAFTA event today: at hiddlesfashion on b l o g s p o t /2018/06/bafta-summer-party-2018.html. Apparently he's now an ambassador for a new initiative for them; another good step in rebuilding his cred.

>>749 Pics of the BAFTA event up on torilla also.

Reminds me how passionately I dislike the beard. I feel it somehow makes him look scruffy even when wearing a suit. Also his hair has now achieved Beaker-like proportions.

751 Name: Heynon : 2018-06-15 01:20 ID:N+5QDef3

>>750 "Beaker-like proportions" - bwahahahaha! That's perfect!

The beard has grown on me, but it's so much better when he's let a stylist trim it. No stylist was involved with BAFTA - one of today's pictures was shot from behind, and his suit jacket is creased and even crumpled at the bottom.

752 Name: Sosorry : 2018-06-16 00:35 ID:zSl8T0x0

Tom looks great. He has a beaming smile while shaking hands w his fellow Eton alum, Prince William. I feel as if Tom has channeled his War Horse-era look. Glad to see Tom getting his groove back. If Stella could do it, so can he.

MSN UK posted a recap video of Tom's career for no apparent reason:

The crazy clever one thinks this may be a soft reboot, and for once, I'm inclined to agree. Especially as it closely follows the 2-year anniversary of Snogging on the Rocks, which passed without any fanfare as far as I saw.

754 Name: Anon : 2018-06-20 22:16 ID:A3rZwPke

I think there is a real possibility it is exactly that, especially combined with the appearances of the last month or so - hospital visit in the UK, BAFTA for kids etc. I am not saying he was a bad or thoughtless guy, but he never did that kind of thing much in recent years, partly I am sure through lack of time. I am slightly setting aside the hospital visit while filming Ragnarok - first, everyone does that visit on the Gold Coast apparently, second TS did it so he kind of had to, and third, the PR nightmare that was Tayto was developing by then.

(Early on, he did it more. For example I think he did some drama day for kids with Cumby when he was wearing an orange puffa jacket.)

I read a very interesting article about a fixer in the Times yesterday - “Are you a Hollywood titan whose reputation is in tatters? Better call Sitrick”. Sadly behind the paywall but all about someone who exists purely to make bad publicity better. I did think about TH a bit when I read it!!

Mr Boundaries:

“I said that the Brazilian fans love him and wish someday he will go to the Brazilian Con. And then I asked what they wanted me to ask: “They wish you could come back to social media. Maybe post pictures of your dog…” And he said, looking into my eyes, “You see my dog is part of my personal life and I don’t post personal stuff anymore. Because social media has this thing where you say something and people twist.”

New Dailymail article from one of the four TNM 2 writers, British spy author, Charles Cumming. It's happening. Not sure how I feel about this. Link below.

"Le Carré didn’t write a sequel to The Night Manager which, in the past, would have been a problem. ‘Le Carré has never allowed one of his stories to have a [film or TV] sequel that is not based on a novel,’ says Cumming. ‘So our job is to write a season that’s going to be even better than the first one, but also stay faithful to the tone of the world that was created by le Carré and to the characters.’We know Tom Hollander’s Corky, killed by Jonathan Pine (Tom Hiddleston), won’t be coming back. Hugh Laurie’s Roper was last seen in the company of some very disappointed arms buyers, but you’d have backed him to talk his way out of it. Olivia Coleman’s Angela Burr will have finished breast-feeding by now, and Pine and Elizabeth Debicki’s Jed have a romance to finish.‘All I am permitted to say is that le Carré has given his blessing to the project,’ Cumming says. ‘The four of us in the writers’ room are sworn to silence. Some characters that the audience know and love will be returning, other will not. The locations will be sumptuous, the plot as thrilling and as thematically complex as a le Carré story should be. We are all aware that the bar has been set very high in terms of audience expectations. The challenge facing us is to meet those expectations, hopefully even to surpass them.’

761 Name: Anon : 2018-07-02 12:45 ID:pA8uN3y5

>>759 yes indeedy. Awful Cumberbatch hat BTW. He's indoors for god's sake.

>>760 I share your doubts. "The locations will be sumptuous"...which kind of concerns me. Having watched TNM for a second time I thought it was a triumph of style over substance - loads of money spent on it but with some really duff plotting and dialogue in places (not throughout). I am assuming that TH will be one of the loved characters that does come back. I can't imagine they'd proceed without him as in fairness he was one of the main reasons the series was a success.

Will the much loved bare backside (pretty much a character in itself) also be returning?!!!

762 Name: heynon : 2018-07-03 01:31 ID:N+5QDef3

>>761 I mentally referred to all the scenes in Roper's compound on Majorca as "Lifestyles of the Rich and Infamous!" For the next go round, it would make no sense to do TNM2 without the Night Manager himself.

Personally, if this ever happens, I rather hope they do without the Hiddlesbum. Although he talks good game about only getting naked when it serves The Work, it seemed gratuitous to me in TNM. Were Pine's shirt and jacket so short that they wouldn't cover his backside in real life?

Also, I came across this recently that calls out that scene as appearing to have been "poorly handled," given the current climate in the industry:

763 Name: Anon : 2018-07-03 09:59 ID:A3rZwPke

>>762 That is a really interesting article.

When TNM first came out I recall us discussing how uncomfortable the sex scene looked, and Anon. (where did she go? We miss her!) saying that he looked unsure about where he was “allowed” to put his hands. On the bare boobie, or not?

He is a repeat offender of the “tongue in mouth” shot, which the lady featured in the article seems to think is an absolute no-no. He also as we know doesn’t wear the pouch. I had wondered before whether, in his sex scenes, we are basically looking at how he kisses and what his moves are in real life. The lack of choreography may support that.

I wonder how many sex scenes are carefully planned in advance. Showgirls was a long time ago so it’s clearly not a new thing.

FWIW I thought that the naked scenes in TNM were completely gratuitous. He got his kit off (shirt minimum) in every single episode and my husband and I were laughing after a few weeks waiting for it to happen. What was the point, for example, of the naked al fresco shower scene? Do SAS men use this to toughen up?

I can't even brag about seeing Tom Hiddleston anymore cause today my girlfriend had a WHOLE CONVERSATION being charming af to him. Surprised she didn't get an invite for tea round his house lol.
He came into my gf's work and they had a pleasant conversation for like 10 or so mins. Meanwhile when I saw him at my work I didn't get a chance to talk to him lol so now I'm just jelly 😂
Let's just say we both work in London, nothing really fancy but open to public. He's just such a down to earth guy that it can happen to strike a conversation out of the blue haha.

So apparently Celebitchy is claiming that the problematic Johnny Depp, alleged abuser of his ex-wife model/actress Amanda Heard, "pulled a Hiddleston" by dressing up in character for Comic Con-Con, by appearing as Grindelwald for the Harry Potter Wizarding World franchise.

I made a short film about lady parts. I mean- parts for ladies. About how lady parts shouldn’t be about lady parts. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. #timesup Here’s the teaser...

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is bringing back a character from Kong: Skull Island. Is it Tom Hiddleston's James Conrad, now played by Charles Dance?

>>781 CB wasn't the only outlet to give it that label, but from what I saw, the pretty universal response was that Tom did it way, way better. (Not even counting Depp's real-life creepiness factor.)

>>783 So glad this didn't go the route of Tom doing the role with prosthetics!

>>784 That is a terrifying thought, especially after the Beard of Doom in the reshot bar scene....!

Apparently, TNM 2 has yet to be officially recommissioned?! Are the writers just brain storming for a paycheck at this point? Wow. I thought that Tom was depending on this gig to begin the next chapter of his career. Still not a sequel fan. Very wary.

"Although the show has yet to be officially recommissioned, and there’s plenty of rumors as to what shape it will take and which stars will return, I hear that the foursome are in full swing, working on plots for the “slowly developing” drama."

Tom just performed Move It on Over w Rodney Crowell in London at Nell's Jazz and Blues Club on Thursday. Bless his heart! He looks and sounds a little rusty and nervous. Glad that he's still keeping up his friendships. Gosh, I wish that ISTL had had a different script and director.

>>786 Let's hope he's not depending on this to happen any time soon. At this rate, it will be "The Night Manager - 10 Years After."

>>787 They should have given him some spoons to play, or something to do with his hands; he's not used to singing without a guitar. But once he was a few verses in and his voice had warmed up, he relaxed. Wish the video quality were better so we could see his expressions. Agree about ISTL!

>>787 How ironic that his greatest acting role is trapped in a film that I cringed over.

Rehash article in a humanitarian mag about Tom’s UNICEF work. Soft launch for the rumored release of his doc this fall?

Tom's scene in the short film, Lady Parts, is posted here on twitter. The film posters of Tom behind Gemma Chan's head, as she is chatting on her mobile, are soo funny!

>>791 Apologies for the source, but I found this very funny:

Remember the famous “Tom auditions for Thor (the part)” story? He claimed to have gained something ridiculous like ten pounds of muscle in 6 weeks and then wore a blonde wig to audition for the part - and was shirtless. As we recall, he desperately wanted that part and had been lobbying KB for it (running into his dressing room wielding a water cooler bottle as a hammer). It was always previously told by him as an anecdote about his determination/amazingly improved physique (I recounted a secondhand story about him attending a BBQ and showing everyone his (not substantially increased) muscles).

It has now, without irony, been recast as Tom’s encounter with #metoo - the oppressive industry requires him to get his kit off in an audition!!!! I have never seen a male actor more enthusiastic about his own gratuitous nudity!

>>792 Funny, I was about to post this 1 min 'interview' -

I was happy to see that LadyParts is on youtube for free.

794 Name: Heynon : 2018-08-06 22:19 ID:N+5QDef3

>>792 That was an odd moment in that story, wasn't it? Who knows why Tom felt the need to tell that to his castmates, or why one of them felt the need to repeat it (and add "And it’s not just women, by the way. Men get it worse to some extent.").

In the context of not wanting to be (physically) typecast, it might make sense. Given his history of getting naked in almost every film, though, not so much!

>>793 I didn't notice - was the other male actor interviewed as well? At least this hasn't blown back on Tom in any way that I've seen.

795 Name: Anon : 2018-08-07 12:24 ID:jepm0pA4

>>794 IIRC he got nekked in CP for teh wimminz, to make female nudity better/more acceptable by evening up the numbers - or something. There has never been any real understanding that garatuitous nudity is demeaning for either sex. Is this his epiphany?!

796 Name: Sosorry : 2018-08-07 14:01 ID:zSl8T0x0

>>795 Nudity in American films is only questionable for me when the writing isn't brilliant, the sex scenes and the nudity in general aren't both propelled by character development in a realistic way and not solely b/c of director's personal fantasies or by the male fanboys' personal fantasies just to sell tickets, when the actors are not treated w respect/courtesy and are not well prepared w intimacy training before for they arrive onset to film the scenes in question, and when the actors are pressured/coerced beyond the bounds of what they've contractually committed to. America either needs to be like Sweden, where male and female actors seem to be filmed nude all the time equally and audiences of all ages are not ethically judgemental about or shocked by any nudity, or we need to go back to a time like the 1940s when the actors kept their clothes on but sparred w witty dialogue.

Pointless Bustle article about private Tom as become, and sicusses his love life: the real and fictitious including those falsely created by Hollywood gossip mags but clearly nurtured by his publicists; and of course his PR fake relationships.)

But who is Hiddleston dating now? Well, he hasn't been pictured with anyone, he's pretty much a ghost on social media, and he hasn't given any interviews on his love life in a very long time. So my guess is he's either single, or he's enjoying a very low-key relationship that he doesn't want to share with the world just yet. And that is obviously completely his choice. As a true Hiddleston fan, whatever he's up to at the moment, I just hope he's happy and living his best life.

>>797 Someone at Bustle was really short of copy today...!

While we’ve been snoozing (cmon, Tom!), Tumblr shut down some blogs for posting copyrighted photos. So the crazy clever one is now at .
