He may not have won at the Emmys, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a good night for Tom Hiddleston. Despite initially being nervous that people would keep bringing up his ex, Taylor Swift, at the awards show, the actor wound up having a GREAT time — and HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop!
Tom Hiddleston, 35, attended the Emmy Awards solo on Sept. 18, and it’s hard to believe that just a few weeks before, we were still speculating whether or not Taylor Swift, 26, would be his date to the show! Obviously, the two have since broken up, and HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that the Thor star feared the split would be all people cared about at the awards show. Luckily, that wasn’t the case.
“He was disappointed that he lost and he thought that was going to define his night. He also thought the talk would be Taylor this and Taylor that,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “But after the initial disappointment of the loss and everyone he talked to not bringing up Taylor, he relaxed pretty quick and was having a good time after everything was over. Plus, he loved all the attention from all the women who came up to him all night. It was way more fun than he thought it was going to be initially!”
Of course, the 35-year-old couldn’t avoid questions about Taylor completely! As we previously reported, he confirmed to People that he and the singer are still amicable after their split. Not surprisingly, he didn’t open up much more than that, but he was reportedly having a GREAT time with his presenting partner, Priyanka Chopra, at an after-party. Perhaps that’s what made the night so much better than he expected?!
HollywoodLifers, are you surprised Tom wasn’t asked more about Taylor? Are you shocked that he felt it would’ve ruined his night?
