Are Tom Hiddleston and Calvin Harris about to strike up a friendship?
According to a new report, Harris, who dated Taylor Swift for 15 months, is hoping to arrange a meeting with Tom Hiddleston so that they can “trade war stories” about their tough times with the singer.
“Calvin knows what it’s like to fight the Taylor Swift press machine and wants [Tom Hiddlston] to know that he is not alone,” an insider close to Harris revealed to Radar Online on September 18.

Harris dated the singer from February of last year until May of this year. Although things between the couple appeared to be headed in a positive direction just weeks prior to their split, they ultimately chose to part ways and after initially claiming on Twitter that he had nothing but respect for Swift, he removed his message after seeing photos of Swift and Hiddleston just two weeks later.
Following news of Harris’ split, Tom Hiddleston went public with the singer on a beach in Rhode Island, where the then-new couple was seen kissing and holding hands as they enjoyed a day out. From there, the couple enjoyed time in Europe and the United States before heading to Australia, where Tom Hiddleston was busy filming Thor.
For months, Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift flaunted their PDA around the globe, and many believed their romance was all for show. Then, weeks ago, a People Magazine source confirmed their relationship had reached its end and claimed the couple had split amicably. Meanwhile, both parties stayed silent in regard to the split as Swift began spending time in New York City with her girl friends and Hiddleston tended to his career duties.
A short time later, reported Radar Online, Swift allegedly started a rumor that claimed she and Tom Hiddleston had split “because he loved basking in her limelight.”
“[Tom Hiddleston] didn’t arrange for the pictures of them kissing on a rock by the beach to get leaked,” blasted a source. “Before meeting her, he knew nothing about staging pictures.”
The report claimed Tom Hiddleston has never been obsessed with the spotlight and has vehemently denied any such thing, as have his friends.

While Swift doesn’t appear to have moved on from their relationship quite yet, Calvin Harris has recently been linked to Jennifer Lopez, who split from longtime boyfriend Casper Smart earlier this year. Meanwhile, Tom Hiddleston has been linked to actress Priyanka Chopra.
During Sunday night’s Emmy Awards, Tom Hiddleston and Chopra were “openly flirting with each other,” a source told E! News. “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. Priyanka fixed Tom’s bow-tie and then the two kissed on both cheeks.”
According to the report, Chopra was seen handing her cell phone to Tom Hiddleston, who proceeded to put his number in the device. Meanwhile, Tom Hiddleston also took Chopra’s number before the rumored couple embraced in a “long hug” and shared “several kisses on the cheek.”
“Priyanka and [Tom Hiddleston] said goodbye and she told him that she will see him later,” our source shared. “They left the event about a minute after each other.”
E! News also noted that Tom Hiddleston and Priyanka Chopra had been spotted hanging out with one another earlier in the weekend during rehearsals for the Emmy Awards.
