It gives us immense pleasure to present to you our Eye Want Candy of the week – the wondrous man that is Mr. Tom Hiddleston!
Who is this Tom Hiddleston?
Born on 9 February 1981 in London, Thomas William “Tom” Hiddleston is an English actor who’s been active since 2001. Graduating from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Hiddleston’s respectable repertoire of works include him playing F. Scott Fitzgerald in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris (2011) and the noble Captain Nicholls in Steven Spielberg’s War Horse.
However, it was his portrayal of a certain God of Mischief (aka Loki) in the booming comic book-turned-movie Marvel universe that skyrocketed this charming man’s acting career.
With three Marvel movies and several other heavyweight roles under his name right now, this very endearing Englishman has easily become one of the world’s hottest and most commended actors of our time.
5 Reasons to Scream ‘Eye Want Tom Hiddleston!’
1. He’s Such A Mr. Nice!
While we won’t deny that there are many actors, actresses and celebs out there that are nice to their fans, we personally feel that Mr. Hiddeston is assuredly one of the nicest. If you need some convincing, just take a look at these evidence below.
Exhibit A: During his recent visit to the Great Wall of China, he gave a tired tour guide a piggyback ride.
Exhibit B: Any guy who cheerily wears fan-made flower crowns during book signings deserve a pat on the back!
Exhibit C: He’s such a gentleman to the media too!
If this is not the definition of Mr. Nice – nay, Mr. Awesome – then we honestly don’t know what is!
2. He’s Not Afraid Of Being ‘Adorkable’!
Some guys like giving out the bad boy aura and others think it’s cool to be all macho and suave. Tom over here prefers a more ‘adorkable’ approach. Take for example, when he dances:
Or when he meets is alter-ego superhero self:
Or when he’s having a blast on The Great Wall of China:
Oh yes, he’s a fun-loving adorable dork; and we’re enjoying every moment of it!
3. His Dreamy Voice!
Tom’s Voice is deep, soothing and dreamy; just like melted chocolate. In fact, his voice is the type that was meant for reciting poetry.
Which actually brings us to this next point…
2. He’s Unconsciously Spreading Shakespearean Love!
Often talking about the wonderful works of Shakespeare and heavily involved in portraying said characters (e.g. Prince Hal in The Hollow Crown, and Coriolanus); it is no secret that Tom Hiddleston is a proud and passionate Shakespeare aficionado.
Truth be told, this trait of his has actually encouraged fans to pick up Shakespearean literature to find out more about their idol’s attraction. Come on now, you know fans and their idols right? And in case you’re wondering — yes, this writer is speaking from experience.

‘Delayed gratification’, cookies and a lovable blue monster have never been better.
