I am loving this new romance (if only for the drama).
Ever since The Sun dropped those photos of Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift “courting” on the beach in Rhode Island, it’s been a delicious gossip whirlwind. I immediately believed it, but a lot of people have a weird (and very Hollywood) concern: that the photos are just TOO staged. Apparently, these photos are oddly similar to all of her other staged photo-ops with new boyfriends (check the Us Weekly exclusive photos with Jake Gyllenhaal and the first staged photo ops with Harry Styles). Makes you think, doesn’t it?
If that’s the case, Taylor is a weird rebound mastermind, because she looks like a baller who played her ex-boyfriend, Calvin Harris, after he dumped her. What does Tom get out of this? Well, he can make his on-again, off-again Elizabeth Olsen feel badly and honestly, maybe he’s into Tay as girlfriend material. That would be pretty on-brand for the guy.
AS A NOTE: Tom arrived in LA (where Taylor was at the time) just a day before Taylor and Calvin announced their split. I think there was overlap, at least “technically” some overlap between Calvin and Tom. SCANDALOUS!
Do you think these photos are staged? Weigh in BELOW.
