Tom Hiddleston dated actress Susannah Fielding for three years

In 2008, before he became a big name in Hollywood, Tom Hiddleston met actress Susannah Fielding while filming an episode of British TV show Wallander. The couple fell in love and were together for three years, though they called it quits in 2011.

Apparently, the reason for split was simply that they were both focusing on their careers and did not have much time for each other. Hiddleston once shared: “Acting just demands everything and if you don’t give it everything, there will be someone behind you who will.”

Hiddleston’s focus on his acting gigs definitely paid off because Thor came out in 2011 and his popularity skyrocketed soon after.

Tom Hiddleston dated Taylor Swift for a few months

In June 2016, Tom Hiddleston began making headlines for his relationship with pop star Taylor Swift after the two of them danced together at the Met Gala.

Taylor Swift was actually dating Calvin Harris at the time rumors about her and Hiddleston were popping up. She broke up with Calvin Harris a month later and was suddenly seen kissing Hiddleston at a beach.

Fans began speculating on what exactly happened between these three people. Some believe that Swift cheated on her boyfriend with Hiddleston. This theory is, apparently, supported by the lyrics to her song “I Did Something Bad” on her album that was released a year later.

In any case, the relationship between Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift only lasted for a few months. The pair broke up in September of 2016.

Reportedly, a reason for their breakup was due to how popular both of them were. “A relationship in the limelight… A relationship always takes work. A relationship in the limelight takes work,” Hiddleston once said in an interview. “And it’s not just the limelight. It’s everything else.”

Tom Hiddleston has been linked to many famous actresses

Whenever Tom Hiddleston is not officially in a relationship, he is constantly being linked to many different women. Some of these names from the past several years include Jessica Chastain, Lara Pulver, Elizabeth Olsen, and Priyanka Chopra.

While there were good reasons to believe he might have been romancing with a few of these ladies (such as those who were his co-stars), others seemed to have just been rumored that manifested out of thin air.

For example, Priyanka Chopra had denied news reports about her and Hiddleston when the two of them were seen together at the 2016 Emmy Awards. “We were presenting for like 10 minutes,” she said. “I met him for 15 minutes. We were behind the curtains for 10 minutes where he was adjusting my dress since it had a long train. We had to figure out to manipulate not tripping.”

After his high-profile relationship with Taylor Swift, Tom Hiddleston has not shared any news about his love life. He is also a private person who keeps his life out of social media, so no one knows for sure whether he is really single or just keeping a new relationship on the down-low.

Given what he said about having a relationship where everyone is watching, perhaps it is best for fans and the media to give the actor space and, if he really is seeing somebody, Tom Hiddleston can share it with the world on his own term.
