Tom Hiddleston might not be cool with talking about his personal life, but he's all for posing with his famous friends.
On Monday night, the 36-year-old actor showed up to pal Ed Sheeran's SiriusXM secret show in New York City and posed with the 26-year-old "Shape Of You" singer, who's also a good friend of Hiddleston's ex-girlfriend, Taylor Swift.
The Golden Globe winner's appearance at Sheeran's concert comes amid him promoting his new movie, Kong: Skull Island, and ultimately dodging questions about his three-month relationship with Swift.

Hiddleston appeared on Tuesday's Today show and was asked about his interview with GQ where he talked about his famous ex. "I make a clear distinction between my work, which I absolutely dedicate myself to, which is for the public," he told morning show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie. "I really believe in that relationship between an actor and the audience. You can’t call yourself an actor without the audience. And my private life is private."
In an earlier interview with The Telegraph, Hiddleston had a similar response when asked about Swift. "I'm just thinking about this. Everyone is entitled to a private life. I love what I do and I dedicate myself with absolute commitment to making great art and great entertainment, and in my mind I don't conflict the two," he explained. "My work is in the public sphere and I have a private life -- and those two things are separate."
As for his interview in the March issue of GQ, he does touch on his brief romance with the 27-year-old singer, insisting that despite speculation, their relationship was "real."
“Taylor Swift is an amazing woman,” he shared. “She’s generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time.”
