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.
We’ve been there every step of the way, with Tom playing a huge role in ELLE over the past 12 months – he interviewed our November 2013 cover star Natalie Portman and, in the March 2014 issue, we turned the camera on to Tom with an exclusive photo shoot, interview, film and special digital cover.
Tom was presented the award by actor Richard E. Grant, who recently made a brilliant cameo in Girls as well as launching his own fragrance with Liberty London.
A pretty compelling argument for making Tom our Man of the Year. And from the reaction we’ve seen on elleuk.com, Twitter and Facebook, you agree.
