The relationship between Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift was always very much a mystery to us.
They started out strong, and dissolved quickly. No one quite expected their relationship to end so soon. In a new interview with GQ, Hiddleston first answers a question about his ex saying, "Taylor is an amazing woman. She's generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time...Of course it was real."
But when it came to his tank-top from July 4th weekend, he had a different response. The shirt that read "I ❤️ T.S." got completely out of hand.
According to Hiddleston his tank "was a joke among friends." His explanation of the shirt didn't stop there. He went in a huge discussion of the backlash from those photos and how it destroyed him. He says, "A relationship exists between two people. We will always know what it was. The narratives that are out there altogether have been extrapolated from pictures that were taken without consent or permission, with no context....."
He continues saying he was "surprised that it got so much attention. The tank top became an emblem of this thing."
At the end of the interview, GQ writer, Taffy Brodesser-Akner explains how Hiddleston looks when she turned off her recorder. She writes, "....he’s here as someone who is still crushed by the end of a relationship."
