Tom Hiddleston attended the Olivier Awards solo, left with an attractive lady friend

The Olivier Awards 2019

Tom Hiddleston attended last night’s Olivier Awards in a rather lovely blue tuxedo from Ralph Lauren. That’s a good fit for him, in my opinion – Tom is very on-brand for Ralph Lauren and vice versa. Tom walked the carpet solo, although he presented at the show with his Betrayal costars, Charlie Cox and Zawe Ashton, who seems to be especially close to Tom. I actually suggested that maybe something is between Zawe and Tom last week, when he came to her book launch in London. I still don’t know. But it’s worth noting that Tom was seen leaving the Olivier Awards with theater producer Emily Vaughan-Barratt – you can see the photos here. Does that look like a situation, or were two friends just heading out for a drink, or perhaps they were going to share an Uber? I don’t know. But she… looks like his type?

Here’s Zawe Ashton, Tom’s costar and friend and possible lover! Her dress is a pretty color but good lord that’s a bad design.

I love Gillian Anderson and I think she’s such a beautiful woman, but I hate horizontal stripes on the red carpet.

Martha Plimpton looked amazing.

Oh, and the Duchess of Cornwall was there. Camilla enjoys the theater, and she enjoys theater folk. Gorgeous diamond necklace too.

    I admit I really do enjoy the speculation about Hiddles’ private life :-)

  2. Ninette says:

    I bet if he’s is in a relationship at the moment. It’s neither Zawe nor Emily…

    • Lindy79 says:

      I agree. I think he learned his lesson with Swift and would prefer to keep his private life just that going forward.

  3. Chef Grace says:

    Let the internet matchmaking begin. Oops. Shipping begin. My age shows LOL

  4. Justme says:

    He didn’t arrive solo – he arrived with her, sat next to her and left with her. That said, I doubt if there is anything going on. She is a producer of Betrayal and all her stars were there. She probably just wanted to make sure everything went well.

  5. Darla says:

    Why is it that every woman Hiddles is seen with people rush into say they doubt anything is going on, or nothing is going on, etc? It’s so weird. Has he taken a vow of chastity?

    • Justme says:

      No – it’s just that Tom (with one glaring exception) has kept his private life very very private. So much so that we don’t even know if he has had a girlfriend since TS. It seems unlikely he would suddenly change now.

    • maxine ducamp says:

      In this specific case, I think it’s because she’s a producer for Betrayal so it’s more likely than not that they went together as work colleagues. If not great, I think that she’d be a good match–not that my opinion on the matter means much–obviously they would share a love for theatre and while she’s not a celebrity, she’s in the business so she’d know the drill.

      And for TH’s own sake, I hope that he has not taken a vow of chastity. He’s in his prime and life goes by way too fast not to try to enjoy it while you can.

    Emily was just a cover for his secret tryst with Camilla who has repeatedly been caught with her mitts all over him in the past.

    Seriously, can we as women stand for one another and not allow publications like the Daily Fail to label us as merely the appendage of whatever male we’re standing near in pictures? I have no idea whether they’re together as a couple or not, if they are, may they be happy, and yes, she’s in the background of just about every picture of him and sat next to him, and they went from the theater to the after party together. But she’s not merely his friend or his appendage. As a producer for the Ambassador Theater Group, which owns the Pinter Theater and as a producer of Betrayal, she is actually his boss, not just his “friend,” as the Fail kept calling her.

    We argue that we need more women in management positions to help us all rise up. Let’s recognize one when we see one.

    And my husband Tom looked quite debonair and dashing.

    • Nanea says:

      Sometimes I’m not sure whether The Fail knows, and can’t be bothered, or if they can’t be bothered to check. It’s their policy – no matter how successful women are in their jobs, they are reduced to their looks, dresses, or who they’re seen with.

      As you said, as a producer for ATG, Ms Vaughan-Barratt is someone who should have been seen out and about before, but of course boring facts don’t sell, nor result in clicks – hence that headline of Tom trying to slip out unnoticed.

    • The Hench says:

      Hear, hear 👏

  7. Lightpurple says:

    Martha Plympton looks adorable.

  8. Nanea says:

    Hiddles and Ms Vaughan-Barratt arrived together, sat next to each other, and left together. So it looks like she was with him. But the Daily Fail’s headline is a bit over the top, as usual. Unnoticed, my ass. They were at a big public event, and there were tons of agency photographers and paps present before, during, and after.

    That said, I liked Tom’s Ralph Lauren suit immensely. Those suits are well designed and look good on him. I wonder what made him quit using that Scientologist stylist’s services…

  9. Case says:

    He looks quite handsome — bowties don’t work for everyone, but he looks great in them. Does he have some sort of endorsement deal with Ralph Lauren? I remember him going to a Ralph Lauren fashion show (maybe during NYFW?) and I feel like he’s worn suits similar to this before that were probably Ralph Lauren.

    If he is dating that woman, she’s very pretty and seems like a powerful lady.

  10. Louise177 says:

    Why can’t a celebrity even stand next to somebody without people assuming they are dating? It just seems like unnecessary speculation when nothing indicates anything is going on.

  11. elimaeby says:

    Zawe has an adorable figure, but the bust on that dress is not doing it any favors. It looks like those vintage torpedo-shaped bras.

  12. Jess says:

    I rewatched the last Avengers movie last night and got so sad we won’t see him anymore, I loved Loki and his mischief! He played that part wonderfully.

  13. Lola says:

    Zawe is not his “possible lover” she has a live in boyfriend. I get that there’s a good chunk of readers on this site that like him and want to know who he is dating. But I find it slightly disrespectful to brilliant women like Jessica Chastain, Brie Larson and Zawe to reduce them to Hiddleston “possible lovers” . They are all really talented ( Zawe is a playwright as well as actress) and I don’t think they should be reduced to hiddleston “ lovers” particularly when there is literally no evidence and they are in relationships with other men. Also his date was the producer for the show he is in.

    • maxine ducamp says:

      I’m one of those on this site who like him and I totally agree with you.

    • Justme says:

      I think with Zawe, it is that she is very very “touchy” and “huggy” and warm and people misinterpret that. We don’t actually know if she and her boyfriend are still together. She last mentioned him in 2016 and he wasn’t at her recent book launch. They last worked together in 2014. Not that any of that means that they are not still together. She keeps her private life private too (good for her!)

    • Lightpurple says:

      Also, Susannah Lipscomb, who just happened to be leaving a restaurant at the same time, only to have her face plastered across newspapers as “Mystery blonde!”

  14. Pearlime says:

    Hiddles has gotten hotter while Cumby has become a lot less so.

  15. Derpy says:

    Why mention Charlie cox and have no pics?

  16. SJR says:

    I love the longer hair on TH, and the blue color of the suit but the suit doesn’t seem to fit correctly. Lordy, that man is lovely, all long legs, broad shoulders, beautiful smile.

    And whoever he is involved with in his personal life is a lucky soul.

    I still kinda hate Taylor Swift, she seemed to have permanently damaged TH’s career with that crap PR romance. Why is he still being dogged for that? She certainly didn’t get the same level of crap about it. I’m just saying.

    • iconoclast59 says:

      TS totally threw Tom under the bus. He caught SO much flak for the “I (Heart) TS” t-shirt; Tay-Tay could’ve deflected that, either directly or through “unnamed sources,” saying it was a silly little joke, what a great sport TH was to play along, etc. Instead, she left him to deal with it all by himself. That beeyotch cost him James Bond; I truly believe Tom was seriously being considered for the role after his excellent performance in “The Night Manager,” but after the pics of that holiday came out, Barbara Broccoli was like, “Uh, nope.” TS had to know they’d be papped; she really did him dirty.

    • D says:

      LOL, you mean grown woman Taylor and grown man Tom, both adults of sound mind who have been in show business for years, both demonstrated poor judgement and damaged themselves with that crap PR romance they both willingly made a spectacle of on 3 continents?

      • Dana says:

        Except he got it much worse than she did. And it was ages ago and it’s time they stopped talking about it.
