I didn’t really feel the need to write this after Why fans love Loki, but in the meantime I met a person I like to call my soul mate when it comes to films. I love my friends dearly, each of them is special and brings something new in my life… and so did this girl, who’s just as weird as me. Now, I don’t really consider myself a fan, mostly because there are still films with him I have not seen. That and I don’t exactly linger for long when it comes to actors. Then again, this last aspect changed quite a lot after I discovered British television a few years back. I love just about everything I’ve discovered until now. So maybe I am finally ready to commit. Anyway, for her, for me and for all those who love Tom Hiddleston, here is an article dedicated to him.
He’s a great actor, no question there. And he’s still young, I’m sure he will keep on growing as time goes by. When he’s old and we’re old, we’ll tell our children and grandchildren about his early carrier, about how we watched him evolve and loved every minute of it. I don’t think there’s any role he wouldn’t be able to pull off. Look at him now… he is one of those people who can be with ease – both on screen and in his everyday life – a romantic, a goofball and the perfect villain. He’s talented and he works hard and he’s so passionate about whatever he does.
He’s insanely smart and we love that in both men and women. Tom loves Shakespeare and we love him for that; here’s a tip: when you don’t know what to say, quote Shakespeare. He actually uses what he knows, even if we speak about preparing for a new role, giving interviews or just talking with his fans. And he speaks various languages properly. That’s hot! Plus, we love his voice. You can listen to him reading Sonnet 130 or The Red Necklace.
We all have two lives. The second begins when you realize you only have one.
We love that he’s such a polite man, but there’s also a kinky side to him that shows that yes, Tom is indeed very much human. We like him even more for that. And he sits like a whore (sorry, I couldn’t help myself). Look it up, you’ll know what I mean.
He’s handsome… very handsome. Why do people speak of “standards” when saying he’s not that good looking? Who the fuck establishes the criteria according to which a man or a woman is or isn’t good-looking? How is a handsome man “supposed” to look nowadays? I saw him blonde, ginger, brunette, with long and short hair, with or without a beard, always tall and lean. I’m not sure what the colour of his eyes is, but they are beautiful. He looks great, end of story. The suits he wears agree with me.
He’s sexy. He’s confident, humble, down-to-earth, sassy, kind, funny… he’s adorkable. Honestly, I could go on all day and night. His laughter is special and makes our day better. Also, he’s a great singer, and I really wasn’t expecting that (you’ll find two videos here and here, check them out). One more thing before we move on: everywhere you turn, you will hear of Tom’s dancing skills. If you ask me, Tom can’t really dance, BUT – I’m not done, don’t plan my death yet – he can sure as hell move. Yes, his hips never lie.
He’s great with kids, we can’t forget that. Also, he’s a kind man and shows nothing but love and respect towards his fandom. He deserves the same respect from us. Far as I know, most of his fans are grown-ups; I’m not saying that maturity always depends on how old a person is, but if you have a certain age, you should know how to act around another human being. I’m saying this because I’ve read some upsetting things and it needs to be said: if you admire a person, treat them the way you would like to be treated, especially if you get the chance to meet them. He owes us what we owe him: everything and nothing.
When lights go out, he’s only human. He deserves not a pedestal, but privacy, happiness, love, adventure, a family. I don’t know how Tom Hiddleston is in private and I don’t want to. I’m just happy to know that his public persona is not the complete opposite of his private self. Do I want to meet him? I would like to see him perform on stage, but I don’t want to meet him. Although I wouldn’t mind a hug… Tom seems to be a great hugger and I love a man who can give a proper hug (there’s an art to it, you know?!).
Why do you love Tom Hiddleston? Is the other question – why don’t you like him – needed? I look forward to read your answers!
