Whether you got all kilig, cringed to death, or found it absolutely pathetic, you will always remember the moment you saw Tom Hiddleston wear a white tank top proclaiming his love for Taylor Swift.
Let me take you back to July 4, 2016:
The then-couple were in the middle of their whirlwind romance, frolicking in the sea in Tay’s Rhode Island manse with her young and beautiful subjects squad to celebrate the Fourth of July weekend. But as we all know, the relationship ended abruptly in September after a three-month run.
It's been five months after their split and we’ve all gone back to our normal lives sans any Taylor-related drama, but now here’s Tom talking about their relationship in his GQ cover story.
Tom, the gentleman that he is (or portrays to be), only had the kindest words to say about his former lover:
"Taylor is an amazing woman. She’s generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time."
And for all of us doubting the legitimacy of their very public relationship, this is what he had to say: "Of course it was real."
The Thor star, in turn, revealed the real reason behind his now-infamous white tank top he wore on Fourth of July, saying:
"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 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."
He was, however, taken aback by the scale of how an item of clothing branded their relationship into something more than it was: "I just, I was surprised. I was just surprised that it got so much attention. The tank top became an emblem of this thing."
Adding, "I only know the woman I met. She's incredible. A relationship in the limelight… A relationship always takes work. A relationship in the limelight takes work. And it’s not just the limelight. It’s everything else. So we decided to go out for dinner, we decided to travel."
Damn. Tell me now that you aren’t crying inside. HUHU
