    Tom Hiddleston Confirmed He And Taylor Are For Real And No One Believed Him

    Tom Hiddleston may have confirmed that "Taylor Swift and I are together" but people still aren't convinced.

    By now you'll definitely be aware that Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift have spent the past month cavorting all over the world, hanging out with his mum, and generally confusing the hell out of people.

    Things weren't exactly helped by Tom giving the most awkward interview of all time earlier this week, in which he refused to answer a single question about Taylor.

    Well, now he finally has spoken out about their ~romance~ after being asked by The Hollywood Reporter whether the relationship is just a publicity stunt.

    He said:

    Well, um. How best to put this? That notion is — look, the truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we're very happy. Thanks for asking. That's the truth. It's not a publicity stunt.

    Everyone was all: "Hooray! Confirmation! This whole thing is legit!" Right?

    Well, turns out no.

    Because despite the confirmation, people still don't believe him. 😐

    When Tom says it's not a publicity stunt

    When Tom Hiddleston says his relationship with Taylor Swift is real and not for a music video

    His insistence it's not fake has made some people believe even more that it is.

    Tom Hiddleston's robotic insistence that his relationship with Taylor is real only makes me think it's fake even more.

    Others didn't even spend a second speculating whether it was real or not.

    Taylor and Tom can fake an entire relationship from beginning to engagement but I can't even get a text back

    Some even brought #BabyGate into it.

    God Tom Hiddleston sounds as fake as Briana saying "my baby son" when referring to Taylor as "Taylor Swift" lmao

    An overlap of conspiracy theories.

    And a lot of people pointed out that referring to his girlfriend by her full name was a bit weird.

    Aah, isn't it romantic, Tom Hiddleston calling his gf, Taylor Swift, by her full name. #Hiddleswift via @THR

    And suggested Taylor would be furious.

    Taylor's like "okay, better, but not great. Maybe don't use my full name next time"

    Taylor is going to straight-up murder him for ruining the whole thing by using her full name.

    Some people were just over it.

    Kinda tired of reading about tom and Taylor if I want to read about a fake summer romance I'll read some fanficton

    And others laughed at Tom's politeness.

    "Thanks for asking" is my fave part of Hiddleston being asked if dating Swift is a PR stunt

    And general Britishness.

    Others did make the point that Hiddleswift literally can't win.

    But at least Hiddleswift shippers were thrilled by the news.
