IS “Swiddleston” just a publicity ploy to land Tom Hiddleston the role of James Bond?
As Thor actor Hiddleston and his new girlfriend Taylor Swift made their latest rounds in Rome — kissing and holding hands at the Colosseum in front of paparazzi — some speculated that the fast-moving relationship may have something to do with Hiddleston’s being buzzed about for the coveted 007 role.
Talk show host Wendy Williams even slammed Hiddleston as “an opportunist” on her show this week, adding, “I’d never heard of this guy before — so how do you drum up votes [to become Bond]?”
Hiddleston was spotted with Bond franchise producer Barbara Broccoli in May. And while others rumoured to be under consideration to take over for Daniel Craig include Idris Elba and Damian Lewis, outgoing Bond director Sam Mendes recently said, “Barbara Broccoli chooses who’s going to be the next Bond: end of story.”
A rep for Hiddleston did not reply.
