Meanwhile, talking to GQ US back in 2016, Hiddleston spoke about his relationship with Taylor Swift and said, “Taylor is an amazing woman. She’s generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time… Of course it was real.”
Talking about the tank top incident with the publication, the Loki actor said, “The truth is, it was the Fourth of July and a public holiday and we were playing a game and I slipped and hurt my back. And I wanted to protect the graze from the sun and said, ‘Does anyone have a T-shirt?’ And one of her friends said, ‘I’ve got this.’”
A friend of Taylor’s offered the ‘I ❤️️ T.S’ to Liam which is mandatory to own by the whole ‘TS’ group. He said, “And we all laughed about it. It was a joke. Among friends.”
Tom Hiddleston added, “I just, I was surprised. I was just surprised that it got so much attention. The tank top became an emblem of this thing.”
