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.
