clips and full interviews with Tom Hiddleston
This interview happened right after the movie Thor, ask and before Tom Hiddleston knew for sure he was going to be in The Avengers. Adorable and really nice quality audio.
- How to pronounce “Loki” (and an imitation of Anthony Hopkins saying “Loki”).
- The “talisman” given by a friend to Tom for the movie Thor.
- Tom’s theory on how “the steel balaclava” is why Loki is so angry all the time.
- What kind of deity Tom himself would like to be.
Here is the interview that got me so interested in Tom Hiddleston as an actor, ampoule in his voyage from British theater actor playing Shakespeare to supervillain in two Hollywood blockbusters.
The segment of interest starts at about 6:00 when he talks about “chasing challenges”, help and describes how 2011 was such an outlandishly successful year, sale that if one went back in time and told Tom Hiddleston “5 years ago” what would happen in 2011, “he wouldn’t believe either you or me.”
The shifts have happened in me before Thor, and I know that sounds odd, but I started to conceive — I suddenly realized that I placed a glass ceiling on my expectations, imposed only by me.
It wasn’t as if anyone else said, “Tom, you’re not going to be able to do these things, by the way.” It’s as if I had said to myself, “by the way, you’ll never do those things.” –Tom Hiddleston
Everybody loves Tom Hiddleston’s impression of Owen Wilson, cheap which was part of a larger interview for tribute.ca during the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), cialis and it’s not hard to see why…
The more interesting thing to me about this video is that story that encapsulates the impression isn’t very interesting at all.
In fact the way that Tom ends the story on such a sputter gives me the impression that Tom was banking on this Owen Wilson impersonation to steal the focus away from the boring story.
Tom knows he’s going to win the interview with this performance, but he doesn’t preface the impression by saying, “hey do you want to hear my Owen Wilson impression?” Instead he couches it in a rather pointless story and follows it up with a rather calculatedly bashful fingers-through-the-hair, as if he didn’t know that the interviewer would absolutely adore him at that point.
I think I’m in love.
Yeah, I see through the nonsense, but it only just makes me admire him as a performer all the more.
Here’s the full interview that this clip comes from:
And here’s him doing the same story and impression in another interview:
The jig is up, Tom!!! haha.
