Benedict Cumberbatch interviewed Tom Hiddleston and brought up Taylor Swift — but it's not what you think
Fresh off a whirlwind summer that involved spending plenty of time in Australia filming Thor: Ragnarok, Tom Hiddleston has hardly been lying low — after all, he’s also got Kong: Skull Island in post-production, and both movies are slated to be two of 2017’s biggest blockbusters. Of course, we’d be remiss not to mention the fact that Tom also dated superstar Taylor Swift for a better part of the summer. Their romance, sweet but fleeting, even earned them the internet nickname of “Hiddleswift,” before reports confirmed the two had broken up earlier this month.
Tom managed to skirt questions about his famous ex-girlfriend just weeks later when he appeared at the 2016 Emmy awards, but it was only a matter of time before Taylor’s name came up in an interview, and this time, it’s Tom’s good friend and fellow British actor Benedict Cumberbatch on the other end of the line.

For his part, Tom simply chuckles and says, “Thank you.”
