During a phone interview with Belgium's Qmusic radio show, hostS Maarten and Dorothee made it seem as if the 35-year-old actor was up for discussing his budding romance with the 26-year-old pop princess. "I would describe it as a roller coaster ride of action and spectacle and lots of laughs," Hiddleston said. "She is an absolute delight. She's actually, um...She's got such a wicked sense of humor and she's a really fun person to have around. She's really great."
Lovely as that sounds, he wasn't talking about Swift. In fact, some of the stars' fans had already taken to Twitter to debate the veracity of the interview. E! News later confirmed that the station spliced together old interviews to make it seem as if he were talking about their new romance. The station later called the stunt "a joke."
Swift, like Hiddleston, has yet to comment on the relationship.
According to sources, however, she's just as invested in their summer romance. Their coupling came shortly after Swift's split with Scottish DJ/producer Calvin Harris (real name: Adam Wiles), and it's been full steam ahead ever since. "Taylor was hesitant to get involved so quickly after Adam," a source said, "but she felt that Adam was not giving her what she wanted for some time, so she was ready to move on towards the tail end of their relationship anyway."
The pair met at the Met Gala in May, where the singer served as one of the event's co-chairs. Swift and Hiddleston had an "immediate attraction," a source revealed. "She felt like she was a little school girl with a huge crush. She loves the fact that Tom acts like such a mature man. She loves that he is older. She feels very safe and protected with him. The attraction is very strong."
So strong, in fact, that Swift has already introduced Hiddleston to some of her closest friends. On Tuesday, they attended her BFF's Selena Gomez's concert in Nashville, where they danced together in a VIP box. The outing provided more proof that they see a future together. As a source previously revealed to E! News, "Taylor said she thinks he is The One, as odd and new as it sounds." Thankfully, another insider said the feeling is mutual: "Tom wants to be with Taylor."
