Tom Hiddleston opted for a quiet night in on Sunday, before his girlfriend, Taylor Swift, was thrust into the headlines courtesy of Kim Kardashian.
The 35-year-old British actor was spotted grabbing takeout from the Social Eating House, a local bar and restaurant on Australia's Gold Coast, where he and Swift have been staying while he begins filming on Thor: Ragnarok. Sporting glasses, Hiddleston carried wine and a bottle of sparkling water, though Swift wasn't snapped with him.
On Monday morning, Hiddleston was spotted running on the beach.
Presumably, the "Shake It Off" singer needed all the emotional support she could get from her beau on Sunday. After Kardashian slammed Swift on her show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the reality superstar took to Snapchat to share bombshell videos of her husband, Kanye West, asking Swift's permission for a line about her in his song "Famous." West previously claimed that he asked Swift for permission before recording the song thanks to the controversial lyrics, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? Because I made that b**ch famous." However, the singer's rep previously stated that "she cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message," and that "she was never made aware of the lyric, 'I made that b**ch famous.'"
Swift was later widely praised for her GRAMMY speech, in which she threw some not so subtle shade at West for the lyric. "As the first woman to win Album of the Year twice, I want to say to all the young women out there, there are going to be people along the way who try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments and your fame," she said in February.
"But if you just focus on the work and you don't let those people sidetrack you, some day when you get where you're going, you'll look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world," she continued.
Swift quickly responded to Kim's Snapchats on Instagram, claiming that since West never played her the song beforehand, she could not have given approval.
"Being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song is character assassination," Swift wrote.
But it appears some damage has already been done. The hashtag #KimExposedTaylorParty quickly started trending on Sunday night.
"That notion is -- look, the truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together and we're very happy," he told The Hollywood Reporter last week. "Thanks for asking. That's the truth."
"It's not a publicity stunt," he added.
