Pop star Taylor Swift and English actor Tom Hiddleston have been photographed on an outing together, kissing.
The British tabloid The Sun ran photos Wednesday of “Blank Space” singer Swift and Hiddleston — a star of the AMC miniseries “The Night Manager” and the popular character Loki in Marvel Studios movies — at what it identified as a rocky stretch of the public Misquamicut State Beach, close to her mansion in Watch Hill, Rhode Island. The Sun said the pictures were snapped Tuesday at 4 p.m.
They show Hiddleston, 35, in dark pants, a dark jacket and a blue shirt, helping Swift, 26, in a blue print dress or skirt beneath a large beige sweater, onto a large rock overlooking the ocean. They sit together — her head on his shoulder in one image, his head on her shoulder in another — and each appears to snap a selfie. Hiddleston drapes his jacket around Swift’s shoulders to help ward off an apparent seaside chill, and the two share a kiss, his arm around her back.
Neither responded publicly to the photos’ publication.
The two had danced together at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala on May 2, with an Instagram video of their steps going viral. Hiddleston afterward told the European news agency the Press Association, “I love dancing, who doesn’t? . . . I haven’t actually danced for a long time, but I happened to be dancing at the Met Gala because it was a party.” He explained, “I was on a table with Taylor Swift and [singer] The Weeknd was playing and she said, ‘The thing about these parties is nobody gets up to dance’. . . . She, as a musician, was like, ‘We’ve got to dance for The Weeknd, so we got up and danced. I didn’t know it was going to ping round the world, but it’s all good.”
Swift and her boyfriend, Scottish DJ Calvin Harris, recently broke up after reportedly being together since March 2015. They were last photographed together driving in Los Angeles on May 5.
