Tom Hiddleston Talks About That Time Tom Hollander Made Him Pee On Him


Tom Hiddleston Tom Hollander

Does peeing on someone really help with a jellyfish sting? Tom Hiddleston better hope so because he tested the theory on his co-star Tom Hollander when the latter got attacked by a gelatinous pest while they were at the beach. Needless to say, it didn't seem to work.

During his appearance on 'The Graham Norton Show' last night (February 16th 2017), 'The Night Manager' actor revealed how Hollander was stung (hopefully in just the leg or the foot or something) while taking a dip in the ocean, and the pair subsequently decided to test an age-old remedy - in the most British way possible.

Tom Hiddleston Insists Taylor Swift Relationship Was "Real"


Tom Hiddleston

Having been one half of the most famous celebrity coupling of 2016, Tom Hiddleston has at last broken his silence about his experience as part of the short-lived cultural phenomenon known as ‘Hiddleswift’, insisting that his romance with Taylor Swift was “real”.

‘The Night Manager’ actor, 35, had nothing but praise for pop megastar Swift, saying that her long-standing reputation as something of a man-eater is not deserved, although their relationship only lasted a little over three months.

“Taylor is an amazing woman. She’s generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time. Of course it was real,” Hiddleston told the newest edition of GQ magazine.

Kong: Skull Island Trailer


It's the 1970s and Captain James Conrad and Lieutenant Colonel Packard are leading a group of soldiers and explorers to a seemingly idyllic unmapped location in the Pacific.

Unfortunately, their journey requires some serious collateral damage, as they are forced to bomb the island and unwittingly incite the treacherous ire of Kong, the King of Skull Island. He crushes them - literally. That's what happens when you bomb the habitat of a giant ape. But soon they realise that Kong isn't the only outsize creature they have to fear, because the island is home to a group of demonic monsters as well, some that resemble spiders and others that resemble reptiles. Their only hope is to enlist the help of the island's inhabitants, tribal men and women who worship the great Kong but disapprove of the Americans' willingness to attack their home.

Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts ('The Kings of Summer'), 'Kong: Skull Island' is a re-imagining of the King Kong story, following him to his home on Skull Island where he first originated. The screenplay was written by Dan Gilroy and Max Borenstein, and filming spanned locations the likes of Hawaii, Australia's Gold Coast and Vietnam. Starring Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson and John C. Reilly, the film is scheduled to be released on March 10th 2017.

His recent romance with, and split from, a certain American singer might be the only thing that most people have been talking about with regards to Tom Hiddleston over the last few months – but one place where he was able to escape that was in a new interview with fellow actor Benedict Cumberbatch.

The Thor: Ragnarok star, 35, spoke to the ‘Sherlock’ and Doctor Strange actor Cumberbatch in a new exchange for Interview magazine’s October edition. In it, they spoke about everything from Hiddleston reprising his character of Loki to the pressures of life in the spotlight – but Cumberbatch was considerate enough not to ask him about his recently demised relationship.

Taylor Swift Tom Hiddleston

The impressive international drama that has been Hiddleswift is no more. Latest reports suggest Taylor Swift has dumped her short-term public love Tom Hiddleston and has ended the three-month romance with the actor. It seems Taylor, who documented her new romance prominently on Instagram during her annual 4th July weekend celebrations, has shunned Tom because she didn’t like his "love of the limelight".

Chris Hemsworth And Idris Elba Take Over Tom Hiddleston's TV Choice Award Speech


Chris Hemsworth Tom Hiddleston Idris Elba

Poor Tom Hiddleston. He landed his first award for 'The Night Manager' last night (September 5th 2016) at the TV Choice Awards, but he was immediately mocked for his win by his 'Thor' co-stars Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba as he delivered a message via video link.

Tom Hiddleston and Chris HemsworthTom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth are total buddies

He's seen numerous nominations for his part in the BBC drama, including at the Emmys, but it's only now Tom Hiddleston has managed to scoop his first prize as Best Actor at the TV Choice Awards. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to attend the awards ceremony himself, given that he was down under filming 'Thor: Ragnorok', but he did rise in the early hours of the morning to deliver his acceptance speech.

'I'm so sorry I can't be there tonight, I'm sure you all look lovely', he said. 'I'm in Australia, I'm shooting 'Thor: Ragnorok', I don't really have anything to offer you.'

After that, he was joined by Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba, who proceeded to manhandle the award and tease their friend about his win. 'Oh, is that for us? For 'Home & Away', yeah?' Joked Chris. 'Thanks everyone at Channel 7, I loved working on 'Home & Away'.'



Idris was a little harsh, examining the trophy and saying: 'Oh man, that's really awful, isn't it? What's this for?' He went on to ask why his detective series 'Luther' didn't get nominated and gave a nod to Tom's co-star Hugh Laurie. 'Hugh - you were amazing in 'The Night Manager'', he said.

'Chris and Idris are super happy about it and so am I so thank you very much', Tom said in his attempt to continue. 'Loved being 'The Night Manager', loved making 'The Night Manager'.'

'Home & Away' rocks! And so does 'The Night Manager'', Chris said before disappearing out of the frame.

Tom beat 'Doctor Who' star Peter Capaldi, 'Downton Abbey''s Jim Carter and Cillian Murphy from 'Peaky Blinders' to the Best Actor prize, while Sarah Lancashire from 'Happy Valley' got Best Actress. 'The Night Manager' did, however, lose to 'Doctor Foster' in the Best New Drama category.
