It really was just a case of summer love when it came to Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston’s brief romance. While their Sept. 6 breakup seemed to come out of the blue, we’ll always have those cuddles on the beach, romantic trips to Rome and of course his amazing ‘I Heart TS’ shirt to remember their once red-hot love.
Tom Hiddleston, 35, and Taylor Swift, 26, totally shocked the world on June 14, when photos of the pair kissing on the rocks outside her Rhode Island estate were made public. It was all the more earth-shattering because she had JUST broken up with boyfriend of 15 months Calvin Harris, 32, just two weeks prior to that.
From Hiddleswift’s introduction to the world in the paparazzi kissing pics, the pair’s romance moved at warp speed, so fast that some didn’t even believe it was a real relationship! By June 25, Taylor had introduced Tom to her parents in Nashville, and the next day they took her private jet to Suffolk, England so she could to meet his mother. Yep, in less than two weeks of dating they already did the whole meet the parents deal! So serious, so fast. The couple made no secret of it either, allowing themselves to be photographed arm in arm during their U.K. visit.
Next stop was romantic Rome, where the pair spent two PDA filled days touring around the Italian city, visiting the Coliseum and making out every chance they got. Hiddleswift’s romance was so on fire at this point we weren’t sure how they were going to top themselves. Until #Taymerica happened.
Tom was the guest of honor at Taylor’s annual epic Fourth of July bash at her beachfront Rhode Island mansion, where he made his love publicly known for the singer by infamously wearing an “I heart TS” tank top while frolicking in the ocean. The couple made out in the surf in full view of her friends and paparazzi, clearly having no issues with flaunting their red-hot love. Their super-public romance was so over the top Tom had to confirm it wasn’t a publicity stunt.
Their love was on the move three days later, when the pair took a commercial flight to Australia on July 7, causing such a media frenzy that Sydney morning shows broke into live coverage of their plane landing! Then it was off to the Gold Coast as Tom prepped for filming his latest Loki role in Thor: Ragnarok. While the couple maintained an unusually low profile down under, they were back in the US two weeks later for Tom to appear at Comic-con. He returned to Australia solo a few days later to keep filming, and the couple spent nearly all of August on different continents before announcing their sudden split.
