In our book, the most likely option is that Tom Hiddleston, being the hopeless romantic that he is, did fall under Taylor Swift’s wily spell, but as soon as he saw his career options tanking, he realized she wasn’t worth losing everything he’s worked for over.
The actor has always been extremely dedicated to his craft and got his start doing Shakespeare on stage in England. His interviews have shown he pours his heart and soul into every role, whether it’s playing comic book god Loki in The Avengers or learning to sing and play guitar to portray country icon Hank Williams in I Saw the Light.
Most recently, he’s been nominated for an Emmy for his work on The Night Manager.
So what has he lost thanks to his conniving former girlfriend? Supposedly the role of James Bond and an Armani underwear campaign, to name just a couple of things. Losing out on playing James Bond–the role of a lifetime–no doubt hit Hiddleston hard, especially when executives supposedly touted his floundering reputation with the immature pop star as a reason for giving him the boot.
Whatever. Now Hiddleston can go back to being his usual charming self and win all the amazing roles and continue to make award-winning work without dealing with Swift and her slumber parties. Thank goodness.
