GQ cover star Tom Hiddleston is opening up about all of those burning questions you may have had during the short time he dated Taylor Swift. “Of course it was real,” Tom responds after being asked about the authenticity of his three-month fling with the singer. The actor’s answer may not calm any suspicious minds because of how quickly their relationship developed, but at least he is sticking to the script.
The actor also revealed the story behind his “I <3 T.S.” tank top that had everyone wondering what the hell he was thinking. “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,” he says. According to the actor, one of Taylor’s friends handed him the tank that the squad is “contractually obligated” to have and that is how he ended up in the embarrassing piece of apparel.
“It was a joke. Among friends,” he says trying hard to convince the general public and perhaps himself.
