Oh, Tom Hiddleston. You sweet, beautiful, talented man-child.
As you may remember, last year the British actor and Taylor Swift had a definitely not fake, three-month long whirlwind romance. Now, the "Night Manager" star is finally opening up about it, however evasively. He even (kind of) addresses that time he was caught wearing an “I Heart T.S.” tank.
“The truth is, it was the Fourth of July… and we were playing a game and I slipped and hurt my back,” he told GQ. “And I wanted to protect the graze from the sun and said, ‘Does anyone have a T-shirt?’ I was just surprised that it got that much attention.”
Sorry I've just seen the picture of Tom Hiddleston wearing an 'I ❤️ TS' t-shirt and I have died of cringe, RIP me pic.twitter.com/1wYyPcIv4X— Emma Kelly (@TooManyEmmas) July 4, 2016
I never really believed this whole "relationship" with Taylor Swift. It always seemed very much like a PR opportunity, despite the fact that Hiddleston is a person who seems so damn genuine — or at least tries to. I mean, his interview with GQ is full of gems. He loves long walks through the park! He's passionate about Bolognese! He's positively uncool!
Throughout the interview, Hiddleston insists the whole t-shirt thing was just a joke among friends. Which, if you think about it, sounds like a statement on his entire relationship with Swifty.
