English actor Tom Hiddleston started his professional acting career in 2001, and a decade later he achieved a higher level of widespread fame after the Marvel Cinematic Universe cast him as the villain Loki. Hiddleston would later play the role in the franchise’s Thor movies.
He starred in a number of films in 2011 and received the Empire Award for Best Male Newcomer and a commendation for the BAFTA Rising Star Award. Tom received his first Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Miniseries or Television Film in 2016 for the AMC/BBC limited series The Night Manager, for which he is also the executive producer.
Tom Hiddleston Bio
On February 9, 1981, a future star actor named Thomas William Hiddleston was born somewhere in Westminster, London, England. He was born as the son of the Scottish physicochemical James Norman Hiddleston and his lovely wife, the art administrator Diana Patricia (née Servaes). His siblings include an older sister Sarah, who works as a journalist in India, and a younger sister Emma, who follows in the footsteps of her big brother to become an actress.
Tom was introduced to the entertainment industry by his mother who, before becoming an art administrator, worked as a casting director and stage manager. When he was 12 years old, his parents separated and as a result, Tom grew up in different places, first in Wimbledon and later in a village near Oxford. He attended Dragon School, Eton College, and Cambridge’s Pembroke College, where he had a double premiere in the classics.
From Eton College onwards, Tom Hiddleston began to perform in school plays. Later he began to play small parts in television shows such as Nicholas Nickleby of ITV and BBC Conspiracy.
After graduating from Pembroke, Tom Hiddleston attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and graduated in 2005. Apart from a few television appearances and some feature films, Hiddleston spent about the first 10 years of his career playing theatrical roles. These years prepared him for the role of Loki in Marvel’s Thor, which became the breakthrough of his career.
Tom Hiddleston has been extremely successful in his career. As a Marvel villain, Hiddleston earns a lot of money with Marvel whenever he starred in franchise movies that required his character. His Marvel films include the Thor films and the films of The Avengers. He also made enormous money with other roles, including Kong: Skull Island and many others. Like any star actor, Hiddleston increases his wealth through sponsorship contracts. His own partners include Jaguar cars. However, Tom Hiddleston’s net assets are estimated to be over $20 million.
His Wife, Dating History, and Ex-Girlfriend Taylor Swift
Tom Hiddleston has had his fair share of romances in the film industry but never made it down the aisle with any of his flames. In recent years, Tom has largely retreated from what is going on in his love life and has become almost like a ghost in the social media. In the past, however, he has led a romance with a handful of notable stars.
His first real relationship to make it into the limelight was with his Wallander costume designer Susannah Fielding. The two were together for three years, from 2008 to 2011, before they separated. The breakup was reportedly due to Hiddleston’s desire to focus more on his career. The reason for this seemed very appropriate as Tom reached the next stage of his career and appeared in 5 movies between 2010 and 2011. If anything, his focus produced excellent results.
While Hiddleston continued to consolidate himself in the Hollywood spotlight, rumors about his love life were circulating in the media. It all began in July 2013 when he was associated with a few women, including Sherlock actress Lara Pulver and record producer Jane Arthy. Tom was photographed making friends with the two women on various occasions. He attended the Wimbledon finals with Arthy, but as with Pulver, it was the only time they were seen together.
And then came 2015, when the English gentleman was associated with Elizabeth Olsen. The rumors began after the duo seemed to share undeniable chemistry on their press tour for I Saw the Light. Olsen didn’t let the rumors last too long when she confirmed them to Refinery 29 that they were not a thing.
Hiddlestone’s next confirmed relationship after Susannah Fielding was with pop star Taylor Swift. It is his most published relationship to date. The rumors that the two had something together began after they seemed to flirt at the Met Gala 2016. At the time, Swift was still dating DJ ace, Calvin Harris. The suspicions turned out to be true when Swift broke up with Harris a few months later and was seen kissing Hiddleston on their date on the beach.
The fans quickly started calling her Hiddleswift, and for a while, it looked like they would go on like that forever. Hiddleston was literally wearing his heart on his sleeves when he was spotted wearing a tea with the words “I love Taylor Swift” on it. In September 2016, after three months in a hurricane, they had separated.
Fans speculate that Talor’s song “I Did Something Bad” on their 2017 album Reputation was about their betrayal of Harris and their relationship with Hiddleston. Tom’s breakup with the pop star seemed friendly, as he had nothing but kind words to say about her during his GQ interview. He also ended rumors that their relationship was just a publicity stunt.
