Playing Tom Hiddleston Reflects on High Profile Summer After Dating Taylor Swift

It's been quite the summer for Tom Hiddleston.

The 35-year-old actor's life was quickly put under a microscope when he was first spotted kissing Taylor Swift back in June -- and it seems as if all the attention won't be going away anytime soon.

The Night Manager star opened up about his summer in the spotlight during a Facebook Live interview with The Hollywood Reporter on Friday, and while he didn't mention the "Blank Space" singer directly as the cause for the increased obsession over his private life, he did reflect on a few things he's learned from the experience.

"It's interesting, we all live in a world where every firm has a camera, and there's nothing new really about the spotlight on me," he said. "I think the spotlight, that’s what happens when you're a public figure."

"What have I learned about it? Maybe it's too soon to tell," he admitted, before promising to give a "proper response."

"I've learned that there are many sides to a story, and that sometimes there are a lot of stories out there which are false, and the hardest thing is to not let the falsehoods affect your mind," he shared.

The Hollywood Reporter's Scott Feinberg later suggested that perhaps the Thor actor's new presence on Instagram could offer him more control over the situation, to which he promptly agreed.

In fact, Hiddleston -- who posted his first snap to his new verified account on Tuesday -- is now following his ladylove on the social media site, and she's following him back.

While Swift has remained relatively silent about her relationship with the English actor, now that they're Instagram official, surely it's only a matter of time before the two start sharing some adorable couple pics.

The Emmy-nominated actor confirmed his relationship with the 26-year-old singer last month, after THR asked if he and Swift were involved in a "sort of publicity stunt."

"Well, um. How best to put this? That notion is -- look, the truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together and we're very happy," he said. "Thanks for asking. That's the truth. It's not a publicity stunt."
