Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift have only been dating for a few weeks now, but she has already influenced him in a major way. When it comes to handling all this new attention, which their relationship brings, he tends to just shake it off. Yes, like her song.
“I don’t know, it comes down to being authentic,” Tom Hiddleston, 35, told PEOPLE at San Diego Comic-Con on July 23, when asked how he’s handling all this new attention. “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.
Tom didn’t specifically name his relationship, but it seems like he’s definitely referring to it. And he’s right — people do have an opinion about his relationship with Taylor Swift, 26. Some have even suggested it’s a publicity stunt. But it’s not. It’s very real. And he wants to spend the rest of his life with her.
“Taylor and Tom are in love with each other,” a source told E! Online before adding, “they have gotten very close. He told her she is the kind of woman he wants to spend his life with.” Aww! Isn’t that so special?
Obviously, Taylor has gotten a lot of attention since Kim Kardashian released her phone conversation with Kanye West, and that in turn has also thrust Tom farther into the spotlight, but they seem to be handling the situation very well. We’re glad they have each other.
