While on set of Kong: Skull Island, Tom took the time to do interviews as part of the promotion tour. In the interview below, he speaks about the iconic character of King Kong, his own role as Captain James Conrad and also the overall story arc of the movie. I have also screencapped the video, of which you can find in the gallery to view them.
Tom appeared last night on the 18th episode of Graham Norton season 20, and also sat on the couch alongside Ruth Wilson, Ricky Gervais, Daniel Radcliffe, Joshua McGuire and musical guest Tinie Tempah. Tom spoke about his new movie Kong: Skull Island as well as his early role in a Channel 5 show, Surburban Shootout alongside Ruth herself. For screencaps of that show, check out our section.

The promotion for Kong:Skull Island is slowly beginning to pick up pace, which means on sets videos, trailers and interviews are beginning to be posted. Today a video was posted via ET showing a glimpse of new scenes, as well as on set interviews with Tom and Brie Larson.
A second video titled ‘IMAX Presents Kong: Skull Island’ also consists of scenes of the movie, as well as interviews with the entire cast.
Following the fan pictures posted on social media a few weeks ago, it turns out the photoshoot (in London) was part of Tom’s editorial for the March issue of GQ US. The interview was posted on GQ’s official site and personally, I believe it to be one of Tom’s most personal interviews.
It’s not so much unknown news now that Tom was in a relationship with Taylor Swift and after 3 months, sadly they broke up. As many fans of Tom know, he is very protective of his person life, so to see some of the detail he goes into in the GQ interview is quite upsetting, as a fan of him. It is also interesting to hear Tom’s view and positivity.
I hope we can all show Tom and GQ writer, Taffy Brodesser Akner that we are very appreciate of the insight to Tom’s life and the overall interview! Below are a few snippets.
This is important to keep in mind while you’re getting to know Tom Hiddleston: His zeal is bottomless. It’s one of many things that were it not for what we know about his personal life, we might already know more about.
You might know, instead, that he’s an English gentleman of the purest caliber who has never spoken out of turn about any of his relationships, who roots for his co-stars and colleagues loudly (really loudly) over social media, who has never been caught flipping the bird at the paparazzi who hunted him after his famous breakup, who wouldn’t curse during my many hours with him no matter what the circumstance because his mother would be so disappointed to read it.
“Taylor is an amazing woman,” reads the prepared statement Tom Hiddleston has memorized and is now giving me at The Bull & Last, where his voice has gone low. “She’s generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time.” But I didn’t ask that, I say. I asked something else. So I wait, and he says, “Of course it was real.”
Please do read the article and be sure to buy the magazine!
Onto the even better news, I have added images from Tom’s photoshoot to the gallery and also screencaps of the video that GQ posted, depicting Tom suited up in a Brown suit. I shall hopefully add magazine scans in the coming days! As of 15th February 2017, scans have been added to the gallery!

Perhaps one of Tom’s most adventurous photoshoots (still not quite sure what is happening), he is covering Interview magazine for their October issue.
The interview itself has been conducted by Tom’s good friend, Benedict Cumberbatch. It’s very interesting to read and also quite funny reading the banter between Benedict and Tom; also quite a long interview. Below is a little snippet:
BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH: Like all interviewers, I should first of all thank you, Tom, for taking this time.
TOM HIDDLESTON: [laughs] Thank you, Benedict. We should just thank each other for our time. For the rest of our lives.
CUMBERBATCH: And then, in typical British fashion, we should just apologize for everything as well.
HIDDLESTON: I’m sorry for disturbing you.
CUMBERBATCH: I’m more sorry than you.
HIDDLESTON: [laughs] How do you feel about …
CUMBERBATCH: My role as a journalist?
HIDDLESTON: I feel conflicted. [laughs]
CUMBERBATCH: I feel my role here is much more as a real friend than a journalist. There will be no curveballs, I promise. But just to get us started, what is it like donning the hair and horns, working with Chris [Hemsworth] again, and working Down Under with Taika [Waititi], your director?
HIDDLESTON: Well, it’s so exciting because I haven’t played Loki for four years. The last time I wore the costume was at San Diego Comic-Con in 2013.
CUMBERBATCH: You’re kidding me!
HIDDLESTON: The best thing about it, honestly, is working with Chris again. I first met him in Kenneth Branagh’s house in England in 2009. We were mere children, in the very beginning of our acting journeys. We made an instant connection, and it’s been extraordinary to share the ride with him—this mad journey with Marvel. Anthony Hopkins has been on set this week. And Taika Waititi is magnificent. He has found a way of honoring everything that came before but doing his own thing. And he’s so funny. His films—and if you haven’t, you must seek them out: What We Do in the Shadows, Hunt for the Wilderpeople—they have this combination of light-hearted, good humor and emotion. They’re very moving. Everyone’s really happy. Of course, we’re just at the beginning.

Tom took the time to comment on his recent Emmy nomination and also to confirm his relationship with Taylor Swift. Below is his interview with The Hollywood Reporter:
Thanks! It’s a good day, a lovely day.
How does it feel?
It feels fantastic. I’m in Australia filming Thor: Ragnarok, and it’s very early in the morning on a Friday. Right now it is just coming up to 4:15 a.m.
It’s impressive that you’ve stayed awake.
Well, it’s not every day you get nominated for an Emmy.
So, how did you hear about the news?
I didn’t have any expectations, and suddenly my phone started blowing up a couple hours ago. This is the most wonderful surprise, and honestly the most thrilling thing about it is that it feels like an extraordinary and heartwarming affirmation for the whole team who made The Night Manager. Making The Night Manager was the most fulfilling team effort, and I’m so proud of everybody.
Were you watching the nominations?
No, I was dozing off because of a long day as Loki. (Laughs.) I couldn’t stay awake, so I was drifting away to sleep. Earlier, Chris Hemsworth had just hosted a screening of the newGhostbusters film, so that was a couple of hours before the nominations were announced. I saw that with Chris and Mark Ruffalo and Taika Waititi, who is directing Thor: Ragnarok, then came home and brushed my teeth and went to bed — and then I was nominated for an Emmy. (Laughs.) So that was how it went.
And this is your first Emmy nomination.
It’s very special because I so enjoyed playing Jonathan Pine. The Night Manager was one of the most challenging and fulfilling experiences I’ve had as an actor. He’s such a complex character — a highly skilled, impeccably courteous, morally courageous, romantic character with a kind of broken heart. I loved playing him. The playing of him was complex in lots of ways in that over the course of the six episodes of the miniseries, the character is called by four different names with four different passports. So there was a journey through identity in a way. It was a tricky balancing act, and like all great professional pleasures, the pleasure of it came from the challenge of it. It was my only undertaking for the year of 2015, especially because Hugh Laurie and I were invited to be executive producers on it, so we were there for the development of it, the production, the whole thing. I’m just very proud of it, and it’s very humbling and heartwarming to be recognized. You never know as an actor if your passion for a project as you make it is going to connect and translate into passion for the audience. It seems that in some respects it has, and that is the most satisfying and thrilling conclusion.
How do you plan on celebrating?
I’m going to go to sleep for a bit. (Laughs.)
That sounds like a good idea. But what about tomorrow?
Well, and then I have to go on set. I have to go and do some Loki things tomorrow. And then I don’t know, actually. It’s nice to see Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo, whom I haven’t seen for a long time. We really haven’t all been together since the first Avengers movie. I don’t know, maybe we’ll do something this weekend.
How do they celebrate Down Under?
I don’t know. I guess I’m about to find out. (Laughs.) We’ll see.
Who are you most excited to see at the Emmys in September?
Oh gosh, there are so many. There are so many nominees from the different categories. I’m very much looking forward to seeing my friends who are nominated in the same category, Benedict Cumberbatch and Idris Elba. They’re both old friends of mine. I worked with Benedict a long time ago — six or seven years ago now, and he’s been a friend ever since. And the same is true of Idris. So I’m looking forward to seeing them and James Corden too. There’s lots of people I’m sure I’ll bump into. It’s funny how back in April I did a roundtable interview with Liev Schreiber and Bob Odenkirk — and they’re both nominated, so I’ll get to see them again. I love their shows and their work.
Do you know who you’re going to take with you to the Emmys?
I don’t. I didn’t even know I could. It’s 4 in the morning here! (Laughs.)
You’re in the middle of a cultural frenzy right now dating Taylor Swift. How would you respond to people who claim that you’re involved in some sort of publicity stunt?
(Laughs.) Well, um. How best to put this? That notion is — look, the truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we’re very happy. Thanks for asking. That’s the truth. It’s not a publicity stunt.
Again congratulations to Tom on his Emmy nomination but also his relationship with Taylor – it’s definitely been a whirlwind, but it’s great to see him so happy!
