A source close to the pop star has revealed that it was practically love at first site for the her and the Avengers actor. Swift had just called it quits with her boyfriend DJ Calvin Harris, whose real name is Adam Wiles, two weeks prior to getting spotted smooching Hiddleston.
“Taylor was hesitant to get involved so quickly after Adam, but she felt that Adam was not giving her what she wanted for some time, so she was ready to move on towards the tail end of their relationship anyway,” the source said.
As for Hiddleston, “There was an immediate attraction. She felt like she was a little school girl with a huge crush. She loves the fact that Tom acts like such a mature man.”
The insider revealed that the age gap (Swift is 26, Hiddleston is 35), is actually a plus. “She loves that he is older. She feels very safe and protected with him. The attraction is very strong.”
