You’d have to agree Tom Hiddleston has been quite understanding about the public interest in his relationship with – and then split from – Taylor Swift.

He recently reflected on it during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, saying “that there are many sides to a story”, and when asked if the two are still friends at the Emmys, he paused before replying “Yes. Yes, we are.”

But it seems enough is enough for Tom, because he wasn’t prepared to talk about his ex in Interview magazine, in which he is interviewed by friend Benedict Cumberbatch. The Sherlock star raised the topic only to explain he wasn’t going to ask about it (er, okay then?), but Hiddleston’s response was forceful.

Benedict: “I just want to say that I’m not going to ask questions about my friend’s personal life just because there are unsolicited photographs of him and a certain someone, in a relationship or together.”

Tom: “I’m not going to get into that. So that door is closed, dear reader.”

Following the shock split of Hollywood golden couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt after 11 years together last week, it’s safe to say Hiddleswift really is old news.
