Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston were seen walking along the beach of Westerly, kissing and holding hands. Two weeks after Taylor’s split from Calvin Harris, E! News confirmed Swift and Hiddleston were an item. As their new romance blossoms, many wonder, “Who is Tom Hiddleston?”
Tom Hiddleston, The Villain

Tom Hiddleston, The Romantic
The Avengers actor told TV3 website he wants to date a woman who most resembles his own mother.
“I like strong women. My mothers and sisters are very strong women, immensely independent and very capable and that’s what I feel comfortable with,” he shared with TV3.
“My mother places a huge importance on decency and kindness and always has—and the older I get the more I realize how rare that is.”
Hiddleston also likes a woman who is comfortable with herself, “I guess the sexiest thing in the world is when I meet someone and they seem like they are themselves… You know be yourself.”
Tom Hiddleston, The Dancer: Taylor Swift 2016 Met Gala Rendezvous
Hiddleston was not so seductive when he and Taylor Swift, 26, broke the internet at the 2016 Met Gala. The couple broke out in a spontaneous dance-off with one another. Tom says Taylor invited him to dance, “I didn’t know it was going to ping round the world, but it’s all good.”
“I was on a table with Taylor Swift and The Weeknd was playing and she said, ‘The thing about these parties is nobody gets up to dance’ and you’re making music … She, as a musician, was like, ‘We’ve got to dance for The Weeknd so we got up and danced.”

Is Taylor’s New Romance A PR Stunt?
Cynics suggest the photo was a set-up or staged, merging the brands of singer and songwriter Taylor Swift with actor, Tom Hiddleston. Yet fans are in unison, agreeing the two are genuinely in love. A source tells Us Weekly it’s not a PR stunt, that Tom Hiddleston is everything Swift wants in a guy.
“Tom checks off a lot of boxes. He’s hot, smart, talented, British, blond, everything she’s into. What’s not to like?… She’s going with it and why shouldn’t she? They have been bonding over the industry, their childhoods, where they are from. It’s the getting-to-know-you phase. Taylor is just happy to have the time to meet someone new and move on from Calvin.”
It seems like the feeling is mutual a source tells Glamour magazine. Taylor feels she’s being treated like a princess. “Taylor is smitten with Tom because he treats her like a real lady. She loves being treated like a princess, who doesn’t, but he goes out of his way to be a gentleman to her.”
Taylor tells Glamour magazine she can’t win when it comes to entering new relationships. “There is no easy way for me to engage with romance. I’m really busy, so I can’t. And it’s a good thing that I feel really independent and I feel that my friends are all I need.”
“It’s kind of a sad way I got there, though, being shamed into it. What else is it when you have two boyfriends in one year and everyone’s calling you boy crazy, making jokes about you at awards shows? That’s public humiliation. And I don’t think its fair.”
Tom Hiddleston’s Childhood
Tom Hiddleston’s parents had quite the interesting profession. Tom is the son and middle child of Diana Hiddleston, a former stage manager and arts administrator.
