Tom Hiddleston: Fame is 'interesting'

Tom Hiddleston finds fame "interesting".

The 'Night Manager' star - who is dating Taylor Swift - feels he has "learned" a lot about being in the public eye and says that he now realises "there are many sides to a story".

Speaking in Facebook Live chat with The Hollywood Reporter, he said: "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. 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 ... 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."

Meanwhile, the 35-year-old actor was previously forced to deny claims his relationship with the 26-year-old singer is a "publicity stunt".

He said: "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. Thanks for asking. That's the truth. It's not a publicity stunt."

And the 'Thor: Ragnarok' star recently insisted he doesn't care what people think of his relationship because he knows he's being "authentic" and true to himself.

When asked if the focus on his personal life annoys him, he said: "I don't know, it comes down to being authentic.

"Everything you do you have to make sure you truly believe in it and as long as you know that, it doesn't matter what anyone else says about it because the nature of being a public figure is that everyone will have an opinion about anything you do, and as long as you know why you've done something and you've committed to it with authenticity then you're OK."
