Tom Hiddleston finally speaks out about Taylor Swift ‘relationship’
So… is #Hiddleswift real, a publicity stunt, or footage for an elaborate music video? These are the questions that have been playing on all of our minds since news of Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift‘s purported whirlwind romance hit the stands with unapologetic vigour last month.
As pictures of the globetrotting happy couple have continued to fill our headlines and social media feeds, it’s seemed suspicious (to say the least) that neither half of Hiddleswift had actually come out and addressed the rumours that the relationship is yet another invention at the hands of Swift’s PR gurus. Wouldn’t they be open to an interview setting the record straight if they were truly so madly in love and had nothing to hide?
Well, all of that has now changed, so you Hiddlestoners can pack your hopes away again for the immediate future.
“The truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we’re very happy. Thanks for asking”, Hiddleston told The Hollywood Reporter yesterday (July 14th) when interviewed about his first nomination for a Primetime Emmy Award.
Then, after a brief pause, the actor added for extra clarity: “That’s the truth. It’s not a publicity stunt”.
So will we be seeing Hiddleswift’s red carpet debut at the Emmys ceremony in September?
“I didn’t even know I could [bring someone]. It’s four in the morning here”, Hiddleswift replied over the phone from Australia, where he’s been busy filming Thor: Ragnarok.
Let’s see if the ‘relationship’ even lasts that long, shall we? Yep, we’re still skeptical.
