Hiddleswift didn't make a Comic-Con appearance, and now there's a good reason!
Tom Hiddleston was spotted solo at Comic- Con to promote "Kong: Skull Island" on July 23 after weeks of PDA with girlfriend Taylor Swift.
The Sun reports that Tom wanted Taylor there but bosses "banned" the singer out of fear of what would be a "circus" if she came came. They were supposedly "forced apart" because of concerns their presence would "overshadow" the movie.
However, a source assures Gossip Cop that the story is "false."
When asked about his summer in the spotlight, Tom said, "I don't know, it comes down to being authentic. Everything you do you have to make sure you truly believe in it and as long as you know that, it doesn't matter what anyone else says about it because the nature of being a public figure is that everyone will have an opinion about anything you do, and as long as you know why you've done something and you've committed to it with authenticity then you're okay."
Recently, Tom also laughed off the idea that his relationship is a publicity stunt.
"The truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together and we're very happy. Thanks for asking," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "That's the truth. It's not a publicity stunt."
Tom and Taylor met and danced together at the Met Gala in New York in early May 2016, which was just a month before her split with Calvin Harris. After the Met Gala, Tom told MTV that he found Taylor to be "very charming."
The duo were first spotted kissing and holding hands in Rhode Island on June 15, and since then, they've been inseparable and have had romantic getaways in Rome and Australia, where he's been filming "Thor: Ragnarok."
According to E! News, "Taylor and Tom are in love with each other." A source further added, "He told her she is the kind of woman he wants to spend his life with."
And in spite of all the curiosity about his relationship, Tom did manage to keep the focus on himself at Comic-Con.
He teased returning to his Loki role in "Thor: Ragnarok."
"I've only shot for about a week but it's so much fun, because I haven't played the character for three and a half years and the script is brilliant, [director] Taika Waititi is brilliant. I've shot a couple of scenes and it's just the best fun. It is like seeing an old friend again," he said.
