Tom Hiddleston's only managed one post on Instagram so far, but that hasn't stopped his Avengers co-star Robert Downey Jr having a good-natured dig
Not everyone is convinced that Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift are for real, and his ‘I Heart T.S.’ vest didn’t really help matters. We mean, no normal person would actually walk around with their significant other’s initials on a t-shirt, would they?
But Robert Downey Jr clearly thought it was as funny as the rest of us did, as he posted a picture on Instagram welcoming his Avengers co-star to the app.
“Join me in welcoming the biggest T. Stark fan of them all to Instagram!” he wrote, referencing his character Tony Stark, better known as Iron Man. Teehee. We see what he did there.
Tom STILL wouldn’t spill the beans on his reported relationship with Taylor, though. Because when the Los Angeles Times questioned him about the photo, his answer was annoyingly cryptic.
“Robert and I are very close and I got to know him working on the Avengers in 2011. There’s a lot of mutual affection,” he said. “I feel like it’s an expression of mutual admiration. It’s great. He’s very sweet. And within the Marvel universe there’s a lot of that going on – a lot of throwing paper aeroplanes.”
Errr, OK then. So we get he saw the funny side, but he still won’t tell us exactly what’s going on with T-Swizzle. Guess we’ll have to wait until their next matching outfit photo opp!
Robert didn’t stop his joking there, either – he followed up his picture of Tom with one of himself as Iron Man, with ‘I Heart Loki’ photoshopped onto his vest. OK, how long do you give it before someone actually makes this vest and sells it on Etsy?
