Tom Hiddleston overwhelmed by Bond rumours

Tom Hiddleston finds James Bond rumours "overwhelming".

The 35-year-old actor is hotly-tipped to take over the lead role in the 007 movies but admits the constant rumours surrounding it are getting too much.

He told Sky News: "People have very strong opinions about Bond and why shouldn't they? But it's difficult to talk about because it's a completely unreal conversation in a way. I haven't spoken to anyone who makes those films.

"It's just an idea in people's minds so it's quite hard to engage with because it hasn't come from me if that makes sense. It's odd because it's becoming overwhelming - not the thing of it, but the number of people per day who bring it up, it's actually becoming a weird thing to deal with.

"I feel like, I want to just make it stop because I have no power over it, but that's what being famous is. You have no power over other people's opinions."

Meanwhile, the 'Thor: The Dark World' star previously revealed he is convinced that Daniel Craig will continue to play Bond in more movies.

He shared: "I'm a huge fan. And I still am. James Bond is a British cultural icon and I think it continues to be. Daniel Craig has been one of the very best and I bet he does more."
