Tom Hiddleston explained why he decided to slip into the shadows following his high-profile romance with Taylor Swift.
After taking a break from the movies – he suggests he had “danced way too much in the public eye” – Hiddy is soon back as a Marvel character Loki.
At one point in his 2016 fling with Tay Tay, he splashed among the waves of Rhode Island wearing an “I heart TS” tank top.
Now in a much more low-key romance – with Fresh Meat actress Zawe Ashton – the 40-year-old has admitted he has given up on work as he tries to reestablish his quieter old life. “A few things crossed my path and I thought about it carefully, but they didn’t feel quite right so I didn’t do them,” the Night Manager star said of her movie break.
“I had played so many different people in so many different parts of the world, and it’s very important to distinguish what’s real and in your own life, and deal with those things.
“Because if you don’t take care of them, they can be lost, or they can be marginalized, and then you come home one day and they are not there anymore.
Hiddy met Zawe, 36, in 2019, when they starred in a Betrayal production in the West End.
He told Empire his new, publicity-shy journey was inspired by a quote from Tilda Swinton’s character in their 2013 film Only Lovers Left Alive.
“She says life is about surviving things, enjoying nature, nurturing kindness and friendship and dancing,” he said. “I should have danced more. But I’m sure there are people who would say I danced too much.
