Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift were an item for a few months. 

Their relationship was the subject of much controversy down to just how quickly Swift rebounded from her relationship with Calvin Harris. 

When Taylor and Tom became a thing, the internet couldn’t help but scrutinize Taylor for moving swiftly on.

They had one of the most interesting relationships in recent memory. 

Fans were at odds, wondering whether the whole relationship was a gigantic publicity stunt. 

If it was a publicity stunt, then the two stars succeeded in getting a lot of that. 

Their relationship was pretty much everywhere.

You know you’re in good graces with Taylor Swift when she invites you to her Independence Day soirée. 

Her guest list generally includes her squad and their partners. 

Basically, get on Taylor’s squad and you’ll be invited.

Tom recently sat down with his pal, Benedict Cumberbatch for October issue of Interview

Benedict made it clear that Taylor would not be mentioned in the interview. 

This is not the first interview in which Tom did not speak about Swift.

"There’s another weight of us being in the public eye, which is this presumption that, because your work and your promotion work is very public, your private life should be, too," Cumberbatch stated.

"And, without getting into a huge debate, I just want to say that I’m not going to ask questions about my friend’s personal life just because there are unsolicited photographs of him and a certain someone, in a relationship or together," the Sherlock actor continued.

"I’m not going to get into that. So that door is closed, dear reader."

One of the topics Hiddleston did open up about was filming Thor: Ragnarok in Australia. 

If you recall, Taylor was with Tom in Australia, so the next part might have something to do with her. 

"You’ve got to do something, even if it’s just to kick-start the day," he told Cumberbatch.

"I use music. And running. I find that, when I’m working, if I start the day with a run—outside, not in a gym, but just me out there in the elements, with only my own legs to propel me forward … It’s something to do with just being in the world and getting out of my own head."

It is a bit disheartening that he didn’t publicly mention his relationship with Taylor, but maybe he’s trying to keep things classy. 

Maybe Taylor has told Kanye West about the relationship and Kim Kardashian will use it to call her out on Keeping Up with the Kardashians

That’s what happened with the whole Taylor being used on Kanye’s music video fiasco. 

It made for a great episode of the reality hit, but it was convoluted. 

It would not be the first time. 

What do you think about all of this?
