Those rumours that Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston might be nothing more than a showmance have been circulating for weeks now. But guess what? Tom’s just answered them.
It’s been just over two weeks since Taylor and Tom first began canoodling in front of our eyes, but thanks to those many conveniently staged pap shots of the famous pair’s romance emerging, not everyone’s convinced it’s totally the real deal.
However, who better to ask than the man himself, and in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter yesterday, the 35-year-old actor decided to answer the question of whether it was purely a ‘publicity stunt’.
‘Well, um,’ he answered, reportedly with a laugh. ‘How best to put this? How best to put this? That notion is – look, the truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we’re very happy. Thanks for asking. That’s the truth. It’s not a publicity stunt.’
Well, you can’t say fairer than that. And he didn’t stop there, either. Hiddleston then confirmed that he and Taylor were definitely not faking it by later telling MTV News: ‘We are together and we’re very happy.’
With the Emmy Awards coming up this September, many people are already wanting to know if he’ll be taking Taylor as his date for the night. But whilst he might be opening up, that’s one question he wasn’t quite equipped to answer.
‘I don’t… I didn’t even know I could,’ he said, before laughing: ‘It’s 4 in the morning here!’
