Are Tom Hiddleston and Priyanka Chopra Hollywood’s newest couple? The pair sure look cozy with one another at the Emmy awards. The two actors were conveniently paired up to present the award for Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series, Movie, or Dramatic Special at the 68th Annual Emmy Awards on Sunday, Sept. 18.
Tom Hiddleston, 35, and Priyanka Chopra, 34, made an elegant display of affection at the awards show. He spun her around as she willingly twirled around in her red Jason Wu gown. Then, Hiddleston led Chopra to the microphone so they could announce the next winner. Check out their cute interaction with each other in the video below.
But wait – there’s more. Alleged inside sources told E! News that the two were “openly flirting with each other” at the Emmys after-party. Chopra and Hiddleston first met at the Governor’s Ball, and were also spotted hanging out prior to the awards ceremony.
“Tom had his arm around her and held her close. Afterwards, Tom and Priyanka talked closely and were holding hands at one point for a few moments,” one of the sources told the outlet. “Priyanka fixed Tom’s bow-tie and then the two kissed on both cheeks.”
At one point during the night, Chopra gave her phone to Hiddleston, and he willingly gave his phone to hers. The source said they were putting their numbers into each other’s phones, then they had a “long hug” followed by “several kisses on the cheek.”
“Priyanka and Tom said goodbye and she told him that she will see him later,” the source said. “They left the event about a minute after each other.”
In addition, the two looked very happy when they were spotted hanging out earlier on that weekend after their rehearsals for the live award show.

The Night Manager star was photographed wearing head-to-toe black ensemble, which consisted of a long-sleeved black T-shirt with belted black jeans. Meanwhile, Chopra wore a white off-the-shoulder blouse with denim cropped jeans. Both actors tried to keep it low-key by wearing sunglasses, but were caught smiling and laughing with one another.
As most people know, Hiddleston was last linked to Taylor Swift, who he first met at the 2016 Met Gala when they danced the night away together. The two just ended their three-month relationship over the Labor Day weekend. As for the Quantico star, she recently opened up about her views on dating and relationships in the latest issue of InStyle.
“I’ve never dated. I’ve always been in relationships,” she revealed in the August 2016 issue. “You like someone, you court each other, you get into a relationship. You’re answerable to each other.”
Swift was the one who ended her relationship with Hiddleston. Their breakup happened right after the time that Hiddleston was talking about their future together. But, it happened too soon and too fast.
“It was an intense start. No one can keep that kind of momentum going. They just dived in and it backfired. They decided to take a break and it turned into a breakup.”
What also didn’t help was the constant attention on their relationship. At one point, there were daily updates on Hiddleton’s dates with Swift. The singer was the one who suggested that they kept their relationship under the radar, reports Us Weekly.
“Taylor knew the backlash that comes with public displays of affection. But Tom didn’t listen to her concerns when she brought them up. The paparazzi photos, the public displays of affection, they all seemed very un-Tom. Tom wanted the relationship to be more public than she was comfortable with.”
Now that Hiddleswift is over, Hiddlechops could be on. It seems like both stars are already comfortable with showing off their flirty banter.
