The actor appears on the March cover of GQ magazine. In his cover story interview, he broached the subject of his romance with Taylor Swift.
"Taylor is an amazing woman. She's generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time," he said, failing to address the actual question of whether or not the coupling was destiny or a publicity stunt. "Of course it was real," he insisted.
As for that "I Heart TS" tank top he wore during the "Out of the Woods" singer's Fourth of July bash at her Rhode Island mansion, Hiddleston said it wasn't even his.
"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," he told GQ. "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.' And we all laughed about it. It was a joke."
