Tom Hiddleston Confirms Taylor Swift Relationship Is Not a Publicity Stunt: 'We're Very Happy'

Tom Hiddleston is confirming that his relationship with Taylor Swift is real, and not a publicity stunt as some have suggested.

THR asked the 35-year-old outright if it was a stunt.

“Well, um. How best to put this? The truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together and we’re very happy. Thanks for asking,” Tom responded. “That’s the truth. It’s not a publicity stunt.”

Meanwhile, Tom was nominated for his first ever Emmy for his work in The Night Manager!

“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,” Tom said.

    No matter what the truth is, it is not like he would admit that it is just a publicity stunt, or has someone ever admitted that?

  • Little Paper Stars

    What happened to him being all “I just want to talk about my work”? That was what, a week ago. Now on the day his gets his first Emmy nod, he’s just decided to talk about her. Make your bloody mind up Tom.

    For her & her team is pure PR everything but good luck Tom :)

  • Sokanon567

    Never thought it was a stunt. Taylor has no reason to do that. It’s not like if she went even 4 or 5 years without putting out an album her fanbase would forget about her. Now whether or not it will last longer than a few months is debatable since none of her relationships last very long. We’ll see though. I know when I met my husband it was love at first sight which actually does happen. Might be whats going on here but time will for sure tell.

  • chickboowa

    yes, we all refer to our real significant others by their full name.

  • Ayesha

    This is another awkward & vague answer , in one of the questions he had been asked is: whom is he going to take with him to the Emmy awards? his answer was: I don’t know.

    He says that he & Taylor are together and happy together, but maybe not in love with each other.

  • Lizzie

    People are just in denial at this point. If you cant believe it when it comes out of his mouth, what else can be done?! Its not our business.

  • sassafrass

    “Taylor Swift”? Why not just “Taylor”? What a farce.

  • sassafrass

    If it’s not our business, then they can take their preferred photo agency off retainer already. So easily done!

  • Lizzie

    Their famous what do you expect, stop searching them if your not interested.

  • Ayesha

    Tom is under pressure, because of Taylor’s PR team and the media, he wouldn’t confess and say proudly : yes, our relationship is a publicity stunt, and it is all faked and staged, because he would be convicted mercilessly and his acting career would be ruined for the rest of his life, he had no choice but to answer this way.

  • Little Paper Stars

    It was rhetorical

  • Mona

    Hopefully she takes this guy a bit more seriously. She’s a bit childish and its shown in her relationships with men as well. She’s a 26 year old woman now, time to grow up Taylor!

  • Michele V

    He makes me cringe.

  • Will

    I hope this works out Tom has always been a gentleman and Taylor and him make a great couple Tom actually respects women so this may just work.

  • Fred1259

    This nasty slut does everything for publicity.

  • Claire

    This means : it’s a publicity stunt. Pooooor loki 😟

  • Toni gee

    Taylors dating life has been a mess for years. She needs to come over to the other team for about six months and make sure that’s not the groove she should be rocking. I know she has a huge female posse but don’t think she’s ever walked on the wild side. If nothing else she gets some groovy new songs and a hell of a lot of orgasms because we know where the G spot is.

  • sassafrass

    Who has to search? We’re being fed this stuff regularly on every media outlet over the space of a month for a reason. The spectacle post-leak should be spectacular.

  • Mayra

    That’s exactly when I bursted out laughing. Poor guy, his team needs to shape up.

  • LindSAY

    Nothing rings true about TS. She is fake all over. I actually liked TH he was funny and charming in interviws but now I know for fact that he is a fool.
    This thing they have won’t last. TS seems immature and unbearable.

  • Just Saying

    “I will not be like the 100 others. I will not be a song lyric. I will not be just another grammy.” – Tom Hiddleston in his head every night before he goes to bed.

  • Mrs. Freeze

    never

  • Mrs. Freeze

    Taylor prefers girls to boys. I thought most everyone knew that.

  • Mrs. Freeze

    His team are simply covering for him.

  • Casey C

    given they’ve been together all of five minutes, saying they’re in love would just make people laugh even more

  • Leyzzle Swizzle

    By confirming this is not a PR stunt, he CONFIRMED this IS A PR STUNT. If it was real, he wouldn’t talk about it cuz he wouldn’t feel that they need to proof something to people. Fake a*ses

  • Leyzzle Swizzle

    then he deserves dating that c*nt, even if it is just a PR stunt. That b*tch looks unbearable and she go with him everywhere

  • Leyzzle Swizzle

    but he will and she will ruin his life too. This b*tch is nasty

  • Gina

    Sure Tom, it’s not fake just because you say so. Now watch me fall in line…not.

    Oh, and he better not bring Taylor’s thirsty ass to the Emmys with him. That would be a disaster.

  • 777

    Lol, what is he going to say “we’re not really dating, we’re doing it to get attention”?!

  • Just Saying

    I know :(

  • Ibayx

    The douche nozzle factor with him has exploded by 1000% in the last couple of weeks. I cringed watching him on Graham Norton but this garbage right here is career suicide.

  • Dawn

    But if he didn’t confirm it would be “why isn’t he talking–it must be a publicity stunt!” He likes her, she likes him. The end. Move on to a new conspiracy.

  • Dawn

    Emmys? Shoot. I hope he brings her to Comic Con!

  • Mona

    Wtf are you talking about? Taylor is very pretty. You’re so obsessed with her, you go anywhere she’s mentioned just to say shit about her. She’s very successful and very pretty. Your obsession with her is unhealthy. Get a life.

  • Gina

    Makes sense; Comic Con fully embraces works of fiction. They’d fit right in.

  • Leyzzle Swizzle

    in a world with such a large amount of more interesting people for me to be obsessed with, you thinki’m obsessed with taylor???.
    And don’t judge my life for the comments on JJ, honey!! My life is too much bigger than this plataform comment session. You NEVER met me in real life and you NEVER saw anywhere else. You can’t say i go EVERYWHERE when you DID NOT SAW ME EVERYWHERE. You only saw me here and you will NEVER met me anywhere else thank GOD

  • Leyzzle Swizzle

    the comment session were made for people to comment, dumbass. I check the news here and i have the right to comment. Or only people who have good things to say about this bitch are allowed to comment?? Are you Jared????? No, you are not.
    And yes, taylor is an ugly and immature hateful c*nt and tom only wants her press cuz he is desperate to be on thenext James Bond movie and he is also using her for money cuz he is not even closer to networth and she drags him everywhere.
    She is a c*nt and he is a gold digger.

  • Leyzzle Swizzle

    And if you don’t like the comments on the comment session, then get the f*ck outta here cuz people won’t stop expressing their opinion just because you don’t agree with it.

  • Leyzzle Swizzle

    and i am an unicorn LMFAO

  • Leyzzle Swizzle

    if he didn’t talk about it, it would be a lot more believable. Nobody needed a confirmation that they were supposedly together cuz she is almost sucking his d*ck in public. There are more PDA pictures of them than Robert Pattinson and Kristen had during their entire life. Enrique Iglesias and Ana are dating for 15 years and the papz CAN’T catch them kissing. Real couples NEVER want their relationship on the media cuz the media is toxic

  • RainbowCandy

    Tom:
    “Shall I wear white today, Taylor Swift?”
    “Will we be going to beach today, Taylor Swift?”
    “At what time is the dinner rsv, Taylor Swift?”

  • Do Tell

    I also admire Taylor Swift. I don’t buy the preposterous things some people say about her. She is a HUGE talent! Think of all she has accomplished without going to the “dark side.”

    I’m older than Swift and she’s the kind of young lady I wish entertainment and Hollywood had more of. I’ll bet a lot of mature mothers would love to have a daughter like her.

    Nothing wrong with her dating a lot. I think dating is healthy to find the right man for her. I believe she has higher standards and is pretty decent. I think a lot of young people are naturally jealous of Swift because so many people today (old and young) have lives that are going into the toilet… and that’s sad.

  • Do Tell

    He’s a grown, mature man. I think he does what he wants. I think he is truly smitten with Taylor Swift and is probably in the market for a wife. I hope their relationship works out.

  • Do Tell

    It’s easy for life to be about work until… one gets bitten by the “love bug.” It’s a game changer, for sure.

    He’s a man. They fall faster and deeper in love than women do, but they hold back longer than women when it comes to finally saying they are in love.

  • Do Tell

    I think Swift is just strong because she had to be with her tremendous successes.

    Also, when people fall in love they want to be together as much as possible.

    When I look at Hiddleston, I finally see a “MAN,” someone who is not threatened by Swift at all. I’ve stated before here that I think he is leading her in this relationship. In fact, if they break up later, I can see it being because she may not have the maturity/experience that he does.

  • Mona

    I’m same age as she is, we all date…she’s not doing anything wrong. Some people have the audacity to compare her to Kim Kartrashian just because she’s dated guys, they forget that Kim K. became famous from a sex tape & for being a filthy you know what… Taylor has class. She should act a bit more her age now, meaning slightly more mature… but she’s great and definitely extremely talented.
