One half of Hiddleswift has broken his silence. 

Giving his first ‘real’ interview (we’ll ignore that awkward run in with paps a few days ago), Tom Hiddleston, wearer of the I Heart T.S. tank, made it very, very clear that their romance was the real deal. 

Direct quote to the Hollywood Reporter: “This is not a publicity stunt.”

Back on message, Hiddleston continued: 

“The truth is that Taylor and I are together and we’re very happy.”

In semi-related news, Hiddleston was also nominated for an Emmy yesterday for his role as a spy on The Night Manager
