One of RDJ's dealers wrote a book and took a lie detector test. The dealer said that RDJ would proposition him when he was high but the dealer was straight. Downey said, "you might like it if you tried it." The dealer was cute and he was eventually arrested and went to prison. His own level of coke use was about the same as his steady client, Rick James.

re: the last bit of gossip on the last thread, from the friend of Tom's RADA "friends"
I can believe that Tom was awkward with women while at drama school - he looked kinda awkward in old photos - but that was quite a while ago.
The recent gossip about him says he hooks up fairly frequently with model-types. So I wonder why his recent GFs still tend to be quite plain looking.
Speaking of which, where are we this week on his GF situation? Is he or isn't he dating Jane Arthy?

" Okay, me again. I talked to my friends who went to RADA.
Prefers girls, but rumors that he is "situationally bi" go back a long way. Who knows what the truth is? Tends to date plain, safe, clingy types, but longs for someone glamorous. The idea that he was voted sexiest actor by fans got a lot of laughs.
Academically smart, but not considered overly high on talent. Works very hard though and is respected for this, but also has a huge sense of entitlement. Is very resentful that he has not gotten a lot more recognition. "This has got to be a very hard year for him."
Throws around his privilege a lot, but seems highly unaware of what a turnoff this can be. Some of his unicef gaffes are typical of him: "Living below the line from the most poshest neighborhood in London. Right." Very sheltered life, limited perceptions. Superficial. Its all about the vip lounge in the end.
Everyone feels the same way about the tinkerbell gig. Wtf.

R29 I think he tends to date "plain" women (or less attractive women than he wants) so he feels like the more attractive person of the pair. This way, the gf/hookup tends to be more "in awe" of him and can stroke his, er, ego about how "lucky" she is and blah blah blah. See Sian Clifford. I bet she was completely starstruck from beginning to end. Now they don't even talk, if that tells you anything. She either wised up (and/)or he got bored (she wasn't listening to his lectures about Shakespeare attentively enough, probably).
It's obvious he has very little self-confidence and dating someone who thinks he walks on water or whatever is just another way Tom gets his daily quota of adoration from the world.

All I'm saying is, some folks with no dog in the race (Coriolanus poster photographer, random Avengers runner in Ohio who got invited to the wrap party) rave about what a class act he is.
So who the fuck really knows? All we are getting is armchair analysis and a guy who claims to be friends with people who went to RADA with him (who must be actors who maybe are not working right now?).
The only guy posting who actually did know him from RADA (the "Tom Hiddleston Troll"), also has nothing but nice things to say about him.

R49 Yet Fassbender managed to become the new Olivier. Having no bad things to say about someone doesn't necessarily mean you want to work with them nor does it imply that he is a perfect human being. He sharts rainbows and butterflies, goes to the opening of an envelope, panders, caters, bends over backwards. He's tall and handsome and cute and seems cuddly, he's the perfect lap dog. But at the end of the day you end up getting a pitbull to protect your precious belongings which in this case are producers' million dollars.

Hi its me, the friends with the RADA "whistleblowery" people whatever that may mean.
Who by the way are very nicely employed in the industry, thank you whoever you are up there, and I hope they stay that way, and I think this is why the reluctance to snark too much. Don't get me wrong, they offered plenty of opinions, but the spirit was remarkably not mean or "posh bashing" as you put it, but just matter of fact dish.
I think I also speak for my friends when I say I respectfully disagree that everyone in the industry is into trashing one another over dinner. I'm not a theatre person myself, but I get invited to a lot of things, and have noticed that everyone tends to keeps things gracious. Nobody wants to be heard talking dirt about someone else simply out of fear of the laws of karma. Its a tough industry, and the person you piss off today might be the person who has the power to blackball you tomorrow.
So maybe the Fassbenders of the world can get away with being horrible people, but struggling actors who want to build their careers have to be more careful. Hiddleston, from everything I have observed, and everything my friends have told me, is firmly in that latter category.
He has had what sounds like a difficult year and I kind of feel sorry for him. Tinkerbell movies. Sheesh. Sorry, but that was not what he had in mind for this year. 2011 did kind of set him up to expect to sail right to the top, and it hasn't happened. Blame his management if you want, but you might also consider the possibility that compared to his contemporaries, he's kind of not all that great.
There, I got that out of the way. Sorry for the lecture.
So DIRT, since that is what you crave: Sorry, he is not a girlfriend beater, a drunk, and to the best of my knowledge, he doesn't eat puppies for breakfast. I think you are right that everyone would be pretty merciless if he were any of these things and this would be a very different conversation.
But that doesn't mean that people don't have hard-nosed opinions on all kinds of other things, and I got a nice earful on that score.
I'll ignore the nepotism and obnoxious silver spoon baby stuff everyone talks about, and cut to the good stuff.
"Situationally bi," in the words of my friend, which I interpret to be sexually fluid and maybe inclined to use people. He has slept with men in other words. Branagh? I have no idea, but that is not a new rumor if he wasn't polishing that rod literally, he was certainly polishing it in other ways. He prefers girls, but is not very lucky on the girlfriend front and does a lot of hooking up. The glamour girls are not drawn to him at all. The fan girls might go on about their exploding ovaries, but ladies who know him aren't that impressed.
Kinkiness did not come up, but I too have heard about all the Gwen Christie stuff. There are also tweets he sent about watching a male friend eat a banana out of hooker's vagina at some club. Sounds like he really got off on watching that. I would say we can safely assume that where there is smoke, there is fire and all kinds of laddish behavior. I wouldn't be surprised if he pulls a Hugh Grant someday, though it sounds like he is so careful about his image he would be on guard against actually getting caught. with his pants down
So that's all. I know this isn't profound tea, nor is it especially scandalous. Kind of boring actually. Take it for what it is worth.

And what's the deal with his PR guy Luke who is doing him no favors with his amateurish and transparent attempts at PR?

Maybe not a dom vibe by the way he sits, more like offering himself up. Don't have to be dominant to do that. The thing that got me was his comment about having a cheering/applause greeting him upon opening his door, since he loved hearing that so much. Perhaps he was being funny, but with all the other things, it is just beyond conceited. I wonder if he jerks off, with the lights on, in front of a mirror?

R87 Sorry, I still don't believe you actually know people who knew Hiddleston. Every single thing you have said is well known among fans (the myspace shit, the banana story) or speculation. It wouldn't be so hard to insert some little tidbits into your "tea" that aren't a big deal but would make you sound believable. Anything about whether he was popular at school, what kind of girls he dated, who he hung out with etc.
I'm just going to assume there is no real dirt because he isn't doing anything interesting and isn't big enough for people to report every move he makes.
R88 "Glamorous" women probably don't like him because he isn't the kind of dangerous bad boy type they like and also, he isn't big enough star to further their careers.
Although I admit it is weird that he has never had a really good looking girlfriend. He should be able to get a model, he IS posh after all with plenty of money and connections and bitches love old money. His looks are irrelevant, plenty of uglier men with money date models all the time. If he were to become truly famous and continue dating plain women, people would definitely speculate that he is gay.

Basically what I see here are a lot of people disliking the guy based on perception and not factual evidence. Which isn’t wrong,because we all see people differently and some can really get on our nerves because of that.
But most of what I read is just venting. I mean let’s be serious, he does a lot of humblebragging? Why are you even an actor if you’re just going to be humble? You need to be your own best PR person and marketing expert to get somewhere in that line of work. The fact that he needs or wants the adulation? Being a florist would not have been the right profession then

Hiddleston's actually quite ugly. He's aged quite a lot lately and isnt an actor who looks better with age.
He's just a very average british TV actor. If it wasnt for Branagh he'd be the kind of actor who always popped up in Midsummer Murder. I bet he's very hammy in auditions because he is on screen. He's adequate playing hammy roles like Loki but his lack of talent really showed up in The Deep Blue Sea. He was mediocre.

I think Tom is aging like Christopher Eccleston, who is another actor who looked boyish for the longest time. Once the wrinkles came round, Eccleston looked more manly.
And Tom does look more manly with a few wrinkles. Unlike Leonardo DiCaprio, who no longer looks boyish but doesn't really look like a grown up either.

If Loki is a hit in The Dark World, I think Marvel will seriously consider giving the old boy his own movie.

No tea or venting, just an observation: Hollywood is very fickle and as others said, RDJ was personna non grata with his drug addiction/conviction and then came Iron Man. Mickey Rourke's career revival is nothing short of miraculous and he got an Oscar nomination, to boot. Hiddleston is hard working, seemingly charming to everyone, cooperative on set and with industry suits AND is talented. If he stays focused he will come out of this slump. I'm not saying he's going to be Brad Pitt, George Clooney or RDJ but he should do OK for himself.

This has been a crappy year for him but I think he's hoping Only Lovers and Coriolanus will give him a boost he desperately needs so he's just going to keep doing the PR shilling for the next couple of months and hopes things improve next year.

But he can do elegant/classy very well,he can do smart, he can do strong/powerful and he can do edgy/borderline awkward roles. And yes,he can also do plain awkward really well but that's not recommended.
This isn't a future Iron Man in the making,but maybe a future Sherlock or the next big psycho or maybe play Prince William in a biopic. There's a lot to to pick from, so I don't see why the fact that he's not Wolverine is the only thing anyone ever brings up

The key to success in the film business is longevity. And guess, what? Being the lead, the "it" guy, doesn't often lead to longevity.
Sometimes it is better to just keep working, be in a supporting role in a big film, maybe a larger role in smaller films and just keep working. Eventually, you get best supporting nod, and then everyone wants to cast you.
Being the superstar lead is brief, and having that and losing that has got to be worse than the struggle on the way up.

You know you read about what’s happening in Russia and it’s shocking but for me and the circle of friends that I grew up with, the places where I mostly spend my time, it’s like, ‘Oh.

re: Tom's career choices
Tom has Shakespeare, The Muppets, Jim Jarmusch and a Supervillain on his CV. It looks like he already has plans to keep his projects varied.
Fassbender has an enviable career, but I'd rather Tom not just mimic the same characters as Fassbender.
I think Fassbender has done well for himself because he hooked up with the director Steve McQueen. They've got a great creative relationship and they are both climbing up the industry food chain because of each other. It would be great if Tom could find a collaborative relationship like that.
He's a smart, wordy guy who likes Shakespeare, so I wonder how well Tom could deliver an Aaron Sorkin rant. Or if Deadwood was still around, a nice David Milch monologue.

He is a two-dimensional, not very good actor, but one ace he has in the hole is that he is absolutely TIRELESS when it comes to promoting a film. Studio execs don't have to tell him to suck harder. He's already there.
For those of you who don't know, the promo side of the biz is anything but fun. It involves long, long days of talking nonstop to the press and answering the same questions over and over, and when you aren't talking to the press you have fans clamoring for attention. The red carpet looks like fun, but a lot of actors just don't enjoy that kind of attention, and it is actually pretty stressful and exhausting.
Ben Whishaw is famous for really hating this part of the work, but he's a first rate actor and can get away with being private and introverted because everyone wants him. Hiddleston is the polar opposite of Whishaw, and most other actors fall in the middle somewhere.
By every account I have heard, he loves the promo side of the work, and can and will talk to the press and sign autographs tirelessly and without complaint. For film producers, this is valuable, and it goes a long way toward making up for maybe not being the best actor in the mix. For himself, he might want to be a bit more careful about the fangirls. The attention seems to go to his head and his judgement is not so great.
All of this constant positive energy and camping it up for the camera is of course calculated. You are viewing an animal in captivity. There is nothing natural or real about any of this. That's just the way it is. He knows when the camera is on him, and he is a natural ham. It's a quality that does not help him as an actor, but is exactly what is needed during promos.
Hope this clarifies a few things. Hiddleston has his limits, but he also has his special skill set. It's been a rough year career wise and he will never admit it because that would be bad pr. He may be doomed to be remembered for nothing but Loki, and he may end up manufacturing Disney products rather than being a Shakespeare God, but he will have a career.

And compared to Fassbender's (however good of an actor he is) filthy drunk ass,this dude is an all round joy.

They give him a way bigger role in Thor 2 which is a good idea. Hemsworth is a bit lame compared to Hiddles. Also Hiddles has a gorgeous voice and is very charismatic on screen. (not off strangely) As much as I think RDJ is an excellent actor, his motormouth speech and his over the top American accent gets a bit on my nerves lately.

Capa movie sounds iffy. Hopefully it will get made -- eventually. But there are a couple of other Capa projects in the works that could be interfering with their film's financing.
I thought it was funny when the reporter asked Atwell what she found so special about Hiddleston and she said he has a "lovely voice."
He certainly has had a run of bad luck recently in terms of films being postponed.

I don't get where this one " friend" thinks he wants a glamourous and powerful actress. From my observations at meeting him and such at a few events, he loves the spotlight and a big name beautiful actress would only get in his way of that. So if you want to date Hiddleston be prepared to take a backseat and let him lead. He is a nice guy but I think he does get moody at times when he thinks no one is looking.
|by Anonymous||reply 171||August 16, 2013 6:48 PM|
A glamorous woman/actress does not need to be a famous one. I understand the attraction because those kinds of women are indeed appealing mainly because of the confidence and power they exude.
And if he liked to be in the spotlight,someone like that could either accept is,if she is confident enough and able to separate things, or it can go the other way and they'd be at their throats. But that doesn't mean everything that person said should be dismissed

I agree with R172, plus who wouldn't want to be with someone with gravitas.
Most of my female friends cling to men like their lives depend on it even if they don't like the guy (and most of the time they don't). They want to be taken care of & treated like a 5 year old, they post creepy 'my daddy is my first love' posts on Facebook come fathers day. And most men fall for it because they are useless dweebs who need the ego masturbation that comes with taking care of a needy thing.

R:175 I never said I was just some fan getting an autograph. I was at the events under another capacity. Yes, I can see what your saying about wanting a women with loads of confidence and independence but it seems in my observations that he still has that need to be needed. I'm not saying he really wants someone who just lives for him, but more like someone who he can take care of. And I believe that a really glamourous independent women is not going to put up with his antics for long. Hiddleston is nice looking but there are so many more men even more handsome and have more connections than Hiddleston. And a lot of these women know that.
|by Anonymous||reply 178||August 16, 2013 10:52 PM|
I'm in a line of work that puts me in contact with a lot of entertainment people, and I have met Hiddleston. I do not know him well enough to have any worthwhile tea, but I can say that I have never met anyone who needs attention as much as he does.
And that's saying a lot because actors are usually pretty needy, but he is way over the top. Its almost as if he doesn't exist if people are not looking at him. The positive happy unicorn image is something he puts on and projects heavily, it is how he wants to be known, but I agree with another poster that if he thinks no one is paying attention, he gets really moody and crabby. Nothing too Joan Crawfordy, but you do get the impression that he really overthinks and tries to hard to control how others see him.
He can't stand his fans by the way. But he also cannot say no to the attention. He doesn't like them but he also fears losing them, and yes he carefully counts his twitter follows.
All this said, I cannot imagine a strong and confident woman putting up with him. He is a bottomless well of need, and though it is possible he might fantasize about attracting someone who is really strong, he really just wants to be adored, followed, and deferred to. This could explain the clingy types.
I don't think he is with anyone in any serious way by the way. There are some guys, but I am not sure if that is friendship or something else.
I also heard that the Capa movie was just not working out at all for anyone. Creative differences. No chemistry between the actors. Financial problems are keeping it from going forward, but it sounded like there were problems all the way around.

Back to the question at hand:
Downey is an ego-driven asshole convinced that he is smarter than anyone else. Like many addicts, he assumes no one can see through his fog of constant cover-up. Including about his sexuality. His primary personality trait is cynicism, followed by self-serving laziness. Sexually he's a taker and is one of those omnisexual sociopaths that can "get into" any scene so long as he's the one calling the shots. He likes the control more than anything, and while he prefers the bottom position he'll fuck anyone who seems like he or she doesn't want it.
He's parlayed his considerable talent and enormous good luck into a career of playing the same thing over and over, and making huge amounts of money. He's still a substance user. He's popular because he always sits there smiling, as he calculates and ciphers. He knows to keep his mouth shut and has (mostly) figured out how to avoid the pitfalls of the past. In other words, a successful sociopath.
Of course he flirts and kids and touches. He now plays the Hollywood Institution Good Guy and, when he's "on," will present himself as very interested in anyone who is his peer, in his eyes, and usually shits on everyone else.
Hiddleston I don't know. I've heard he's gay, but it's second-hand and something said about any actor who tries to keep his private life private. The odd seem 50/50. He's also smart enough to say miles away from Downey - everyone knows his game.

Surely if he was a smoker someone would have papped him. He smoked in one of his earlier shows and he looked like he was comfortable with it, not just acting. Who knows. His skin on his face is just awful.
Got a kick out of one of his Disney interviews when he stated he lived a simple life, ordinary life, when asked how he keeps Loki's ego in check in his own life. Translate- Just a rich man living his rich life.

I've seriously never analyzed the man's skin like some of the people here, but I don't think it's gone downhill so bad. Sure, the babyface only lasts til a certain age, but it doesn't mean he's evolved into a terrible creature.

R292 Co-signing with this. Any living, breathing, sentient 32 year old man or woman has normal physical, emotional and mental urges/needs. He's clearly a flirt, hooks up, has GFs, BFs or whatever.
Hiddleston's life has been a whirlwind for the last three years in terms of work, PR, play with some (OK, lots) shameless self-promotion thrown in. Even though work slowed down for him in 2012, his life did not. Hence, the aging. He's a thin guy to begin with, with a naturally high metabolism that goes into overdrive when he does -- which lately is a lot of the time. When thin people get too thin, it shows in their face -- hence the ears sticking out, lines becoming more prominent.
Seriously doubt that Hiddleston has a cocaine problem; he'd never be able to do Coriolanusand substance abuse could derail his career for sure, especially when he's still trying to establish himself. He has bought into the fangirls and become a bit of a famewhore. One hopes he'll snap out of it. Only time will tell if Arthy is a real GF but the longer time goes on w/o a sighting the less likely it seems. If/when he does get into a serious, committed relationship, that person female or male, had best be prepared to take a back seat to HIS ego and ambition. There's a reason he shows up to the opening of an Email.

R298 ITA, Hiddleston has real talent -- he can act rings around Hemsworth. Right now his fame is a two-edged sword because it's tied to Loki and the Marvel universe. Coriolanus hopefully opens more doors for him beyond OLLA and the low budget Capa film if that ever gets made. In the Nerd interview, he was rank about being offered parts that Fassbender turns down.A lot of black actors in the same age range as Denzel Washington had the same complaint!

Between promoting OLLA and the fact that he starts Coriolanus rehearsal at the end of October, he's unlikely to attend many première (at some point it'd be nice if they'll present the real villain of Thor2). Add to that the fact that he hasn't a single movie coming out next year, this is probably the last bit of exposure he'll get. So bear with him.

I don't think Loki is overexposed... yet.
But I think it's pretty clear that Marvel is giving Loki a push. If they're going to give Loki his own film, it's nice that they're throwing some support behind him.
All Tom has to do is kill it in The Dark World and I think Marvel will have every reason to go forward with a Loki movie.
After the Ben Affleck news, this might be the perfect time for Marvel to swoop in with a new movie/franchise that appeals to the fans (and demographic) of Nolan's Batman and Loki totally fits that bill.
I know some people here are gonna hate it, but I hope a Marvel franchise happens for Tom.

I think the Loki fandom is pretty small actually. You hardly hear of them outside of Tumblr. I doubt very much that Marvel is going to let a small group of fangirls steer anything. These late reshoots are less about giving TH a push than they are about salvaging Thor 2 after a some pretty well known disagreements with the director.
TH has another chance with Thor The Dark World, of course, but I don't actually see a Loki breakout film happening. For starters, there is nothing in the Marvel universe that would feed into this. I'm not saying we won't see the character again, but I think his role will always be supporting, not lead.
What I think we will see that will unseat Batman once and for all is the Doctor Strange film. It is definitely in the works, and with the right writer and actor, will hit all of the notes TH is hitting and then some. It will not be like anything else Marvel has done.
There is some Loki crossover in that part of the Marvel universe, btw, so if TH wants to play Loki until the cows come home, he may have his chance. Personally, I think he would do better to get some better acting roles. There is this thing about the law of diminishing returns.

We've barely seen Eccles which is strange. He's great but he doesn't have the fangirl pull like Tom. Natalie Portman wanted to leave, Idris Elba only came back for contractual reasons, and Hemsworth is busy filming big projects/becoming A-list. Plus he's not happy with his Marvel money.
Meanwhile, over-enthusiastic puppy Tom is sitting at home wearing a homemade Loki helmet and waiting desperately, tail drooping, for Kevin Feige to ruffle his ears and let him perform in front of a crowd of adoring fangurls.
Really, he is the only person who will happily show up and talk and talk and talk and smooth people over like they've never been smoothed before. He's an expert at that stuff.

It really is odd about Ecclestone, isn't it? He is the main feature for this film, and yet he has done no promotion.
Hemsworth has an excuse. He is busy filming projects with highly unforgiving schedules but which will make him assuredly A-List, but even he has managed to do some interviews over the phone. Ecclestone isn't even working on anything new.
What is going on with Thor 2? They fired the composer at the eleventh hour, the director stopped editing because of disagreements with Marvel, Portman and Elba did not want to come back at all, they're filming new scenes two months before the damned thing is to be released and are trying to get us to believe that it's all because they are so excited about the growing story.
Cut the crap guys, filming new scenes this late at huge expense to everyone means something is not working. I smell desperation.

My main reasons for going to see Thor 2 will be for Hiddleston and Eccleston, so I find it disappointing that Eccleston does not appear to be more of a focus in the promos, especially as he is supposedly the chief villain. More Tom/Loki is always good news though :)
The behind-the-scenes 'rumours' that are circulating do make it sound a bit like the film is being made by focus group to me. It doesn't necessarily mean the film is in trouble or the finished product will be crap however. I'm guessing a lot of these kind of films are 'tweaked', 'plussed', 'rejigged' or whatever in order to make the absolute maximum impact at the box office.

And most famous people do read what is written about them. In Hiddleston's case I'm sure it serves two functions: it strokes his ego and keeps him apprised of what the crazies are saying/doing.

My read on that was: male fans get photos with Shakespeare quotes, female fans get the "You're hot" message because he assumes this is what female fans want above all else. It's all about cultivating the fandom. He actually does prefer to have the screaming fangirls at Coriolanus. Anything but actual theatre goers who might critique his performance.
About the "buttery" voice video. Come on guys, he's a trained actor. You can always tell when an actor is nervous and insecure because his voice will go down several notches, smooth out, and get all silky and seductive. It's a vocal technique. He is not being himself; he is being what you want to hear.
Also, just so you Americans are clear on this, British actors know that Americans, especially American fangirls, are suckers for the British voice.
To me, he just sounds like Eton and privilege, and if he wants to be taken more seriously, he might want to do something different with the voice. But I suspect TH wants to be "liked" more than he wants to be taken seriously.

So he met this girl on set, and gave her an autographed picture with 'you're hot' on it? In front of her BF? Stay classy, Hiddleston. Was he hitting on her or just joking?

The 'you're hot' is one of his favorite things to gush out at attractive females. That and "you have incredible" eyes, legs, body, etc, all the while laying on the charm. Just read past posts on other threads here and other boards about his behavior. Seems he has the sexy eye contact down pat as well as the buttery voice, and hugging. He knows what sells and who is buying. LOL

Okay I'll try to retype the story to make people understand. Disclaimer: this was from a friend whose friend worked on the set. I know, sounds legit already but this is what I was told after friend clarified what happened.
Girlfriend was set with boyfriend who was working on the Thor 2 set. The first time, girlfriend (who is a fan) gets a lovely autographed photo that says "To *name* [quote that is probably Shakespeare] Tom Hiddleston" Some time later, she comes back and she gets another photo that says "To *name* You're Hot" The boyfriend probably knew and probably didn't care since he probably knew that TH has a track record for this sort of thing.

I think it's interesting that no-one can see him for what he is - a sleazebag. I dunno. Maybe he's just an obsessive flirt, but when he pulls the same trick over and over again it get a bit much.
He's always giving girls full body hugs, telling them how nice they smell, kissing them on the cheeks/head when taking pictures. complimenting them on their.. everything. Eyes/hair/dress/smell/blah. And the girls all just giggle as though he hasn't said the same thing to the last chick he spoke to. He just needs to be adored at all times.

R375 This thread ceased to be about RDJ & Hiddleston after about 5 posts! R374 is correct: Hiddles is an obsessive flirt, he's working the fangirls for all it's worth on three continents.

r372 Tom is the one who wrote the message in this story, so it is his action. The girlfriend as a fangirl was probably drooling and gushing and all because that's just what fangirls normally do. Tom has been obvious about catering to his fanbase as much as possible, and such a message would provide fangirl thrills.
If the girlfriend was actively trying to arrange to get with Tom she would have gotten something like his phone number or email, not an autograph like that which would serve nothing but making her boyfriend aware Tom might possibly be interested.

Look, it is not rocket science. TH has a huge reputation pretty much everywhere for this.
He is always always on the make, 24/7. It just doesn't stop.
He's cruises everyone, he blows everyone, he sucks up to every director in sight with the same repeated tiresome script. Everyone notices this, but nobody really cares because they just don't care. Only the fangirls squeal over his Hiddleconda.
Sleazebag? Sounds like it to me.
There are actors who actually are nice guys with genuine intellectual chops to show for themselves (Eddie Redmayne comes to mind) and they do not behave like this. I pity any woman who takes him seriously as a BF.
Last year was his year to suck, and this year is the year for him to put on those double kneepads and suck harder. Judging by the casting decisions, I don't think anyone is going for it except for some easily impressed fangirls who don't know that he is the walking equivalent of one of those cheap cardboard sets where you put your face in a hole for a picture.

A lot of people do that when they had a celebrity encounter that included an autograph. If the photograph was already online somewhere for that reason the bf could just copy it and send.

He's been linked with several actresses over the years -- usually women that he's worked with in the Brit TV and Brit theatre crowd e.g. Gwendoline Christie and Susannah Fielding to name two. It was also rumored that he knocked boots with Hayley Atwell at one point, though they've been friends for 10 years. When he was in the US to do Thor he was linked with Kat Dennings. His relationships seem to be measured in months not years as others have said.
Hollywood starlets typically try and hook up with producers, directors and A list actors who can give their careers a boost. It appears Hiddleston is focused on trying to boost his own career.

I too wonder what is up with his sense of style. He used to dress with some personality and could really rock a suit. Now he seems to wear the same white shirt and tired blue suit everywhere.

I work at a UK national paper, and got a press release for the event. His name was on the bottom under a supporter, but not toward the top of the programme as a speaker so he wasn't a no show and didn't let anyone down.

As for his publicist being there - obviously he was. If there were press there, and cameras, his publicist should be there. No PR worth their gin would allow a client off out the country with a camera crew and not be there. When you see other celebrities on charity trips - their publicists are there too, they just don't get caught on camera.
Do you know how hard it is to get celeb involvement in charities? How many of them ask for money or something in return? This guy just did it. Good for him.
Come on, his involvement has raised awareness for UNICEF. Mission accomplished. Job done. There's no negative in that. None! Claws away. A thousand Hiddlestoners now know more about UNICEF, know about Syria. Maybe they wouldn't have done otherwise. Who knows.
You see what you've done DL? You've turned me into a motherfucking Frau! Drop me out...

As for 'raising awareness', I'm pretty sure we knew there were poor people in Africa before Unicorn Prince Thomas went over there, stepped out of his golden Rolls Royce onto the hot sand and noticed some ragged looking children playing in the dust. I had never heard of such things until I saw those pictures of Tom wearing his plaid shirt in the desert. Luckily, the starving children helped improve his French vocabulary so it was a win-win for everyone.

And it's not difficult to get celeb involvement in charities, especially if there's a camera crew and PR girls milling around. Do we even know if he gets paid for his Unicef stuff? I'd be surprised if he does it for free. Typing those tweets once a week really takes it out of him.
|by Anonymous||reply 470||August 30, 2013 7:53 PM|
comments like that are shit.
Agree or not, raising awareness for starving children is a good thing. Yes, people know that children in Africa are starving, but sadly, it becomes more real to them when someone they admire is out there, showing it first hand.
He did some good, he seemed affected by the experience and he continues to push for activism against poverty and starvation. As the other poster said, why is this a bad thing? Why is he convicted just because he comes from a wealthy background? Are people of wealth not allowed to be concerned about the world around them?
So many idiots, so little time

I get so bored of the 'Tom is such a good person because he Raises Awareness'. As if a few tweets from a Unicef press pack are enough. Is he really (really, really) pushing for activism against starvation and poverty? Would he have gone a trip to Guinea if he had anything else to do, like a big film project? I doubt it. You need to think about this and not let your admiration/obsessive fangirling cloud your judgement over him.
No doubt you will say of course you've thought about this properly but most people say this and they just don't. And then get catty and defensive because omg look at his cute little face and heartbreaking tweets, he obvs cares soo much about those kids. Blah.

I've thought about it and still don't see why people get the shits about it. He does what he can - why is that a bad thing. It's not his fault the world is so fucked up, people only start caring about stuff when a celebrity tells them to. That's just how it works, right or wrong.
And I used to work in the charity sector. I would very much doubt he gets paid in any way - that's a pretty shitty thing to say, actually.
And I don't think he's a perfect sparkly prince who shits rainbows and farts perfume, incidentally. I'm just a bit fed up of this whole 'anything he does is terrible' bollocks.
Unless the 'thing' he 'does' is me, which would be fucking amazing, natch.

[R472]I am not saying that Tom Hiddleston is a saint, but your argument is ridiculous and self-contradictory. First you imply all he did was make a few tweets and then you talk about his trip to Guinea. Then you make a really dumb statement that he wouldn't have gone if he had been working on a film. Well, no shit Sherlock, If he was working at that time I doubt he would have gone to Guinea.
This does not; however, in anyway, change the fact that he did indeed go to Guinea, and not in a limo as someone else implied. He slept outside with mosquito netting, he traveled on rough roads, and saw up close and personal, the living conditions. He saw how they assess babies for chronic malnutrition, he learned that women in Guinea aren't educated about Breast Feeding, he wrote about it and asked his fans to donate ( oh the horror), which they did.
Have you gone to a third world nation? Have you inconvenienced yourself in anyway at all to benefit your fellow man?
I don't give a rats ass if you don't like this dude's acting or his persona, but stop acting like a dumb fuck by criticizing his efforts to prevent children from dying from malnutrition.
The backlash against this guy for trying to do a decent thing is weird. And yes, it was a publicized event, because, fucktard, that is what it was supposed to be. The point was to make more people aware and to solicit more donations. If he had gone over there on the downlow and not said a word about it, wtf good would that have done?
I am not a fangurl for Hiddleston. I find his public image OTT as far as pandering to his fans, I think he has talent but to me his looks a "meh", but a nice body. Seems talented enough for the things he has been in.
But I don't see the fucking point to hate on him for the Unicef thing. Dumb and Dumber.
Given that he is probably prone to the frailties that most narcissistic actors have, there will be other things to hate him for, if you find pleasure in that.

There are scores of celebrities out there who are quietly doing charity work, even starting and running charities, and they do not bring along their publicists for photo ops. They even discourage attention that might be focused on themselves.
I appreciate any effort anyone makes to help starving children. I'm going to assume TH's heart is in the right place, at least superficially, but he is clueless, and his fans give him way too much credit for his "raising awareness" retweets while wearing Armani. They are in it for his attention, and he is in it for ours.
I think people assume he is in this for the publicity in large part because he seems to be in everything for the sake of publicity. He is all about the cameras. It may be he is a better person than this, I hope so, but he does set himself up for this.

What, miss any chance on any red carpet? Hiddleston?
He will be there and he will find a way to grab his photo op. If he is wearing the same blue suit and white shirt, Luke is just not doing his job.
My bet is on the Armani suit and no underwear. Someone will surely photograph his crotch for Tumblr and he knows it. He counts on it. Going commando in such a fine suit sounds skanky to me, but its what he does.
I think he would benefit heavily from a glycolic acid peel. His skin would be red for a few days, but would improve significantly after that, but only if he were highly committed to using sunscreen. What is this problem with using sunscreen folks? Is he a smoker? That too could explain the crappy skin and the lines around his mouth.
|by Anonymous||reply 502||September 2, 2013 5:14 PM|
Like any dermatologist worth the name would tell you, that would only make his stratum corneum thinner and even more sensitive to sunlight. But sunscreen, 24/7, all year long, would be a good thing. As for the reasons, his skin might simply be predisposed. I doubt it's smoke, he's a runner.

Hopefully he was low key out of respect for his friend Hemsworth.
I think the previews for Rush look really good. I hope it gets good reviews and wide release. Hemsworth as Thor is just "meh" to me, but when he isn't in that wig and costume, he is a good looking guy, and I would like to see him show if he has any actual acting chops. I thought he was decent in his short scene in the first Star Trek, Thor was just so so, Avengers, he didn't have much to do, and I never saw The Snow White movie. Yet he gives off a vibe of a nice guy, so I would like to seem him do well. Pictures of him holding his daughter sort of make me melt

He hasn't done anything this year, winning for what?

GQ is for fashion. He shot that horse in the face.

GQ Awards seems an event like MET Gala, where people go to be seen regardless of whether or not one has a reason to be there.
So even if he is not getting an award he might go just for PR. And leave for Toronto after the party. Or maybe not. We'll see.

He's always listed in GQ's 'fashionable men of the week' wearing that same suit every single time. The polo pics were listed recently.

It's British GQ and the awards are a pointless PR exercise. Of course he'll be there.

When do the festivities begin then? I'm curious. Mostly about the choice of suit
Btw, we move into that other Hiddleston being a good actor thread when this one goes over capacity?

In a hour I think. If he goes, since nobody knows for sure right now, I guess Mcqueen tux? The one he used in Cannes.

Oh how I wish he'd show up in a white t-shirt. That would be monumental, but he'd never do it. But if we could at least get a black or gray suit, the world would be ok. Blue clashes with his current ginger way too much

576 yes, move there

Personally, Arthy or no Arthy, my question is: why when someone meet him around London he's always alone (nearly always)
|by Anonymous||reply 581||September 3, 2013 4:40 PM|
[R581] Because he probably enjoys his own company and freedom more than the company of a current squeeze. But then again, how often do people who are fans bump into him? Maybe the rest of 99% of the time he's all lovey dovey with the/a lady.
Tho the latter isn't too probable

R581 he's single, simplest reason.

lovey dovey like in wimbledon picture?
Sorry, I couldn't resist

"army of models" and we know how much he loves "army"

[R584] Touche' ! Exactly like that, maybe with an even more clenched fist

[R585] Come now come, "allegedly" he'll be there with Arthy. ( Is it Arthy or Arthly?...nevermind)

In empire magazine it was saying that OLLA is going to be shown in October at the London film festival.

He's at the awards wearing a tux.

Just because janes not doing interviews with him doesn't mean she's not there..

even Sian was behind him during interview

I think it's safe to say he was without a date.

R595 are you the troll that said she was supposed to go with him?
|by Anonymous||reply 599||September 3, 2013 6:37 PM|
Maybe she can be there for her job, but she's not there with him
