Tom Hiddleston has won ELLE Man Of The Year at the ELLE Style Awards 2014.

He couldn’t be with us tonight, so he sent us – and you – this message instead. No, we didn’t smack him around the head to make him do it (but there’s a good story behind that plaster!) And yes, shooting this VT was the most fun we’ve had at midnight in a hotel room in, well, forever.

It’s been a massive year for Tom, who reprised his role as the wicked Loki in blockbuster, Thor: The Dark World and recently starred in critically acclaimed Only Lovers Left Alive, as well as winning rave reviews for his portrayal of Coriolanus at London’s Donmar Warehouse.

Tom Hiddleston, the Old Etonian actor, is keen to distance himself from David Cameron’s party.



For all the efforts of Mike Read and Jim “Nick, Nick” Davidson, the Conservative Party could do with some cool celebrity supporters to trounce Labour’s Richard Wilson and Prunella Scales. It may not, however, be a good idea to suggest to Tom Hiddleston that now is the moment for him to come to the aid of David Cameron’s party.
“I’m not in the Conservative Party,” harrumphs the 32-year-old actor, who is currently appearing in Coriolanus at the Donmar.
But, Tom, you went to Eton and you are posh. “It’s just an accident of birth,” he ripostes in Time Out London. “And I’m sorry if you are offended by that. I’m not a big fan of the class system, to be honest. It feels ugly to me. If the work is good, it doesn’t matter where you come from.”

Not Emily’s type
Emily Maitlis appears to be strangely resistant to Boris Johnson’s famous charms. The Newsnight presenter, who went on Have I Got News For You when the Mayor of London was the guest host, has no desire to repeat the experience.

“I have done panel shows. They suck. Sadly,” she says. One in the eye, too, for David Mitchell and Lee Mack with whom she appeared on the Would I Lie to You?

Beefy’s beef

Sir Ian Botham once talked about his “lifetime love affair” with cricket. Just lately, however, “Beefy” admits that the relationship has been cooling.
“I’ve deliberately stayed out of touch with everybody in the cricket world,” he sighs at the Music and Mountains fundraising event for Wellbeing of Women at the Hilton Doubletree Hotel.
“England were pretty ordinary in Australia. Actually, they were weak and it was embarrassing. I thought I would get a lot of stick in Australia after sticking my neck out and saying we were going to win 5-0. I got the score right, I just got it the wrong way round.”

There is something about the stage that brings out the best in people. Performers who have achieved global fame on the big screen are humbled before an audience consisting of their old mates. In the climax of this year’s 59th Evening Standard Theatre Awards, Dame Maggie Smith faltered in the spotlight, her eyes glistening with tears, a lump in her throat, as she said that her heart actually ached for the theatre and she wanted more than anything to return to it. ‘But there is no Mrs Lear!’ she cried, as directors and playwrights across the room conferred in a collective aim to find a role for Maggie.

Earlier in the evening, Clarke Peters’ soft and slow rendition of ‘There’s No Business like Show Business’ was spine-tingling. Dame Edna Everage was at the top of her game, sympathising with the Comedy Award winner David Walliams over parents who could not even spell his surname correctly. The host for the evening, Damian Lewis (below), came on stage with a copy of Friday’s Evening Standard and a superbly reworked version of ‘Leaning on a Lamp-post’. He stage-managed the astonishing roll call of talent and national institutions — Boris Johnson, Barbara Windsor, Sir David Attenborough, Helen Mirren, Adrian Lester and Rory Kinnear — with wit and warmth. The lure of theatre never felt stronger.

Do you have any particular method for learning Shakespearean lines?

I’m the man who looks like a lunatic walking around the parks of London talking to himself. I have to be on the move, I can’t learn them sitting at a desk. I march myself around outside,drilling the lines into my brain. There’s no secret: it’s repetition, repetition, repetition, like practising your forehand in tennis.

One of the biggest movie of this past month has been THOR: THE DARK WORLD, as it has grossed over $500 million dollars since it’s release on November 8th, 2013. There are a lot of themes that run through this movie that may appeal to the Live Theatre going audience, especially those that are fans of Shakespeare’s: revenge, pouty princes, royalty leading their men into battle. Yet, there is another reason that theatre lovers can enjoy this movie. All the Live Theatre performers that are in it!

Yet, one person that has received a lot of praise for his turn as the good old fashioned villain Loki, God of mischief, isTom Hiddleston. He may have exploded into public consciousness as the villainous Loki in the Thor movie, but he has been a Working Theatre and television actor for years before his role in this blockbuster movie.

His credits range from THE CHANGLING, CYMBELINE, Cassio in a production of Shakespeare’s OTHELLOAlongside Chiwetel Ejiofor and Ewan McGregor to critical and later Lvov in a West End revival of Chekov’s IVANOV.

Starting December 6th through February 8th, 2014,, he can be found playing title character in William Shakespeare’s theatre adaptation of CORIOLANUS at the Donmar Warehouse and Covent Garden Theatre.

Check out what he had to say about acting, Shakespeare, and his famous co-stars when he came to San Diego for in July for Comic Con and visited Nerd HQ and Zachary Levi (currently in FIRST DATE on Broadway)? Pull up a chair, get some tea and see what he has to say!

Other things that he does in this chat that may entertain you:

  • Can do many impressions of his co-stars
  • Claims to have two passions – Tennis and Shakespeare
  • Is an awesome velociraptor

In this he says there is a quote that he really likes which says (In French and English) “We all have 2 lives. The second begins when you realize you only have one- so don’t waste any time.” So click on that link already!

This year the Nerd HQ panels benefited Operation Smile.

National Theatre Live will broadcast the Donmar Warehouse’s production of Coriolanus, Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge, with Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, War Horse (film), BBC’s The Hollow Crown) in the title role and Mark Gatiss (Season’s Greetings at the National Theatre, BBC’s Sherlock) as Menenius, directed by the Donmar’s Artistic Director Josie Rourke.

When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her hero and defender: Coriolanus. But he has enemies at home too. Famine threatens the city, the citizens’ hunger swells to an appetite for change, and on returning from the field Coriolanus must confront the march of realpolitik and the voice of an angry people.
