Tom Hiddleston is one of the busiest actors on the planet — we all know that filming blockbuster movies takes him from Los Angeles to Australia and back again. In an Aug. 11 Facebook Live interview with our sister site ‘Variety’, Tom talks about how his working in different places impacts his relationship with girlfriend Taylor Swift!
Taylor Swift, 26, and Tom Hiddleston, 35, are one of the tightest couples around, but Tom’s constant traveling to remote shoots for upcoming movies like Kong: Skull Island has made seeing his girlfriend tricky. “The way we shot [Kong], and [director Jordan Vogt-Roberts] was adamant about this, was that we should go to the ends of the earth, where nature is at its most beautiful and terrifying,” Tom told Variety about filming. “So we went to Hawaii, and the rain forests of Australia, and the swamps and rivers of mountainous lakes of Vietnam…” Wow!
The interviewer pointed out that Tom hasn’t really been home in a year, and he wistfully agreed. “I hadn’t. I’ve since been home for a bit. It’s funny — being an actor now — you have to be easy with traveling, because all the work, the most interesting work, is often happening in remote locations. Very little is shot in L.A. anymore, in New York and in London,” he said. That makes it hard to see Tay, who has residences in those first two cities he mentioned!
As for whether he’ll get to Los Angeles for the Emmys in September (he’s nominated for The Night Manager), Tom isn’t sure yet, as he’s headed back to Australia for more shooting. “I hope so. We’re trying to figure it out. Fingers crossed,” he said. How amazing would it be if he stepped out at the Emmys with Taylor on his arm?!
