Months after Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift called it quits, fans are still wondering if their relationship really happened. Was it all a bad dream? Was it a publicity stunt? And why did Tom Hiddleston wear that awful “I <3 T.S.” tank top?
Though he’s normally quite shy about his personal life, Tom Hiddleston finally set the record straight in an interview with GQ. Most importantly, he explained the horrible tank top.
“The truth is it was the Fourth of July and a public holiday, and we were playing a game, and I slipped and hurt my back,” Hiddleston said. “And I wanted to protect the graze from the sun and said, ‘Does anyone have a T-shirt?’ And one of her friends said, ‘I’ve got this.'”
Of course, the item was the highly questionable tank top saying, “I <3 T.S.” It may have been an eye-roller to us, but to the guests at the party it was all in good fun.
“We all laughed about it,” Hiddleston said. “It was a joke. It was a joke among friends.”
