Hiddleston recently sat down with GQ's Taffy Brodesser-Akner to talk about what it was really like to be one-half of Hiddleswift.

The "I ❤️ T.S." tank top was a joke, "among friends."

Hiddleston said:

“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. And I wanted to protect the graze from the sun," he explains. And one of her friends said, ’I’ve got this.’ ”The friend pulled out the "I ♥ T.S." tank top ... “And we all laughed about it. It was a joke.”

He continued:

“I don’t know,” he says. “I just, I was surprised. I was just surprised that it got so much attention. The tank top became an emblem of this thing.”

Hiddleston insists the relationship with Swift was real:

“Taylor is an amazing woman,” reads the prepared statement Tom Hiddleston has memorized and is now giving me at The Bull & Last, where his voice has gone low. “She’s generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time.” But I didn’t ask that, I say. I asked something else. So I wait, and he says, “Of course it was real.”

Still, he said, "I only know the woman I met. She’s incredible.”
