Remember when Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift dated for a quick three months? And then the internet exploded when they finally broke up? Well, since news broke, neither one have talked about the inevitable demise of their relationship, but last night at the Emmy’s (where Swift was once rumored to be Hiddleston’s date), the 35-year-old actor was questioned about his ex. And surprisingly, he dodged the question like a champ.
Like everyone who’s ever been broached with the awkward question “are you and [insert one of my loathed ex’s names here] still friends?”, Hiddleston was awkward and swift in his reply. The star responded to People magazine’s question with four words: “Yes. Yes, we are.”
Smooth Hiddleston, smooth.
Later on that night, Hiddleston proved that he’s 100% over his ex when he openly flirted with Quantico‘s Priyanka Chopra. The two were first spotted by viewers presenting an award together early on in the evening. Based on their entrance, Hiddleston was already smitten.
“Priyanka fixed Tom’s bow-tie and then the two kissed on both cheeks,” says the source. The co-presenters also allegedly exchanged phone numbers, a “long hug,” and “several” cheek kisses.
Is this legit? Or is this just a masterful way to get back at Swift and every Hollywood reporter who wanted to ask him about her? You tell us.
