Tom Hiddleston gets sweaty for ELLE

Most Popular

There are many things Team ELLE would like to do to Tom Hiddleston. Styling him for a fashion shoot comes fairly high up on the list. So does getting him drunk and interviewing him for then hours. So does making him get all hot and sweaty.

Last month, I got to do all three. There is a god.

In ELLE's March issue, the very obliging star of Thor, Coriolanus and Only Lovers Left Alive models casual urban-wear by Hugo Boss, Karl Lagerfeld, Dolce & Gabbana, and Giorgio Armani, and demonstrates some rather impressive parkour skills in our exclusive short film. Hiddleston has a fine-looking run: 'Interesting,' he says. 'I feel very myself when I am running.'

He also gives an incredibly candid interview, and explains just why he is an inadvertent YouTube sensation. 'I have no boundaries,' he told us. 'I just say yes to things.' Yes, he really does. But you probably need to read the full interview to find out more.

He talks to us about women. Wanna know about his first kiss? So did we: 'First kiss at 10! Yes, 10 years old, tongues and everything. [Laughs] She was a huge crush, we were in the same class, a lot of note swapping, and eventually it all went down in a cricket pavilion on an autumn night. It was very thrilling.'

His tastes have subsequently been refined: 'I believe in the strength and intelligence and sensitivity of women. My mother, my sisters [they] are strong. My mum is a strong woman and I love her for it.' Just give us a second while we pick ourselves up off the floor.

Check out the BTS pics from our shoot here. 'In the end you will always kneel'... so we did. And we have featured the adorable Mr Hiddleston on a special digital edition cover. Get it here.
