In an interview with The Telegraph, Tom Hiddleston seemed not happy when asked about his short-lived romance with "Shake It Off" singer, Taylor Swift. When the "Night Manager" star was asked whether he regretted anything about the media storm caused by Hiddleswift, he uncomfortably replied, "What should I regret, in your mind? I would rather not talk about this if that's all right."
Tom Hiddleston further explained that his personal life should remain private despite him being a public personality. "My work is in the public sphere and I have a private life and those two things are separate." He took a long pause after letting out a heavy sigh.
According to Enews, the romance between Tom Hiddleston andTaylor Swift first sparked interest when they were seen dancing together at Met Gala in May 2016. Their relationship went public on June 15 shortly after photos of them together on a beach in Rhode Island came out on the internet. The two seemed to be very much in love and what followed after was a whirlwind romance. They travelled together, celebrated July 4th together, and had even met each other's parents. Tom Hiddleston also defended their relationship against critics who think that it was only a publicity stunt.
Their highly publicized summer romance lasted for only three months. There were reports that Tom Hiddleston was dumped by the pop superstar, however, friends of Hiddleston were also claiming that the British actor was the one who decided to let go of Taylor Swift as he had grown tired of her.
In an interview with GQ, the British actor admitted that he still thinks that Taylor Swift is an amazing woman. He also added that work and distance may be the reason why it didn't work for them. Things became difficult for both of them when Tom Hiddleston had to film "Thor: Ragnarok" in Australia while Swift stayed stateside.
Tom Hiddleston is set to star in "Kong: Skull Island", a thriller monster film written by Dan Gilroy and Max Borenstein under the direction of Jordan Vogt-Roberts. The film is scheduled for release in the United States on March 10, 2017.
