Hiddles!

9:27 AM


Where do I even begin with this post? I have had an entire weekend to try to come up with a cohesive post, and yet I’ve got nothing.

If you have no clue who the gorgeous man in the picture is, he is none other than Tom Hiddleston himself. He is an amazing British actor, you probably recognize him from Thor, The Avengers, War Horse or Midnight in Paris. ANYWAY, he is in Detroit right now filming a vampire movie mere miles from where I work.

So I guess to start from the beginning, while I was away camping last weekend, Kyle’s awesome brother Chris posted an article on my facebook timeline, stating that Tom was filming in Detroit near Brush street (right where Kyle and I always park for Tigers games!), and I about lost it. I think everyone in that campground googled Tom Hiddleston, because I would not shut up about it. I could not figure out if they were filming the entire movie or just part of it. I also checked all of his tweets and about died when I saw how happy he was to be in Detroit “Motown”, because I LOVE Detroit, despite all of the negativity towards the city.

Moving along to the good stuff-Tiffany and her sister Whitney (my friends and fellow Hiddles fans), went downtown last Tuesday in an attempt to meet Tom, and they succeeded. I had to work that day, and went home after and was pretty bummed that I missed out on him so we made plans to go again.

At first, I was pretty nervous about waiting around outside the hotel stalking him because I really didn’t want to be an asshole. But after Tiffany and Whitney told me how nice and patient he was, I felt better about it. After about two hours or so of waiting in the hot 104 degree sun, we got the chance to meet him on Friday!

It took me a second to realize it was Tom in the long-sleeved flannel with a giant Whole Foods bag on account of his sunglasses and wet hair. A group of guys who were standing near us spotted him though and said “Tom!” and he looked over at us and smiled and there was no doubt who he was. Tiffany, Whitney and I gingerly walked up behind the guys and Tom said “Hey guys, I’ve got to run, do you have something for me to sign?” and signed what seemed like a million pictures for the guys and then Whitney handed over her Thor hammer and he got really excited about it and said “A hammer!”. He even asked her if she wanted him to write her name or just his. Then Tiffany and I asked if he would take a few pictures with us and he said “of course” or “sure” or something like that and took one with Whitney & myself. He then asked Tiffany if she wanted one too, so I took the camera from her to take the picture and after looked at mine and it was really bad, lol. Tom and Whitney looked awesome, so I very nervously asked if I could take another and he said yes. While Tiffany took the second one, Whitney asked if he would take a pic holding her hammer and I must have looked at her because Tom said something like “Where you looking at the camera or the hammer?” and he kind of laughed when he said it so I started laughing and he said “let’s take another”. He then took one with Whitney and her hammer, he pretended to hit her with it and we just started giggling. We then thanked him, one of the guys said “Enjoy Detroit” and he watched us walk off and then climbed in the van.



To be honest, I really wish everyone could be as nice as he was. Not only did he let me take multiple pictures, but he made sure that I took a good one. He put his arm around us, even in the 104 degree hot sun, and he never stopped smiling. I was shaking because I was so excited but at the same time did not want to keep him from getting to where he needed to go, but he was just so patient with us. And, guys, he smelled SO GOOD! We all figured he must have gotten out of the shower on account of the wet hairs. Either that or he has the best smelling sweat ever.


I have heard over and over again that you are never supposed to meet your heroes, but if every hero was as nice, kind, adorable, patient, and funny as Tom Hiddelston, things would be a little different. I am beyond thankful that I had the opportunity to meet him, and also very thankful that I didn’t creep him out.

BEST DAY EVER!!!

  1. I am so happy you got to meet him! I could tell from the photo's that he seemed like a really cool guy. I love when celebrities take the time to be nice to fans and take photo's with them.

  2. Oh my gosh, that is so exciting! It is so hard to approach a celebrity, I know. You don't want to bother them, they are just people too! But they are famous people. I once met Krist Noveselic, the bassist for Nirvana, and I was so worried about trudging up the past that we talked politics and not music. Though my boy did get a picture with him so it was sort of about the past...

  4. I had so much fun reacting to this post. There was squealing and laughing and lots of idiotic grinning.
    It always makes me so glad to hear when someone you constantly hear is so nice truly is. And I'm glad you didn't creep him out, ha! Omg that made me laugh.
    I think I would have swooned. His voice is so fantastic, like curling up in a warm blanket; I'm not sure I could have handled it.

  8. Wow that is so exciting and I am very happy for you. It is especially amazing that you were able to get photos. When I met Gok Wan I was extremely excited and I met one of my favourite presenters on local radio. That's the extent of my celebrity meeting.

  18. OOHHMYYYYFUCKINGGOD. Okay. He sounds so nice! And that photo where he's pretending to hit your friend with the hammer? OH MY GOD. He looks so good in that plaid shirt too. I AM JUST ETERNALLY JEALOUS.

    I met James Marsters (Spike from BTVS and like the love of my life basically) at Dallas Comic Con a couple of months ago and it was probably one of the best moments of my life. Meeting your heroes and celebrity crushes IS JUST THE BEST FEELING EVER. I'm so happy you got to meet the Hiddles!! <333

  20. I absolutely love the fact that you actually had the chance to meet him! I know how much you adore him, so seeing you with him (in pictures!) makes me so happy for you! How awesome, Sara!

    P.S. Your comment yesterday made my day! I actually tend to watch chick flicks while I paint my nails, so I had to laugh out loud! :P

  21. It's very rare indeed when a celebrity is just as attractive in person and even rarer when they are actually nice! I'm so glad Tom lived up to the hype. I hope I can meet him someday too.

  22. I have a stupid question to ask...what did he smell like? I've read so many comments of people who have met him that have all said 'he smelled sooooo good'. Those of us who will never get a chance to meet him (except in heaven) want to know!

  23. @Kimmie A lot of people have asked that I am not really sure! I want to say it may have been a cologne, but not a very strong one.

    ReplyDelete
  24. That's okay...thank you for replying to my note! I'm glad you got a chance to meet him - love the pics! Have a good day!

  25. OMG! YOU ARE SO LUCKY! That last photo is a sure winner!!

  26. Jesus, I'm convinced he's the best person in the ENTIRE WORLD. He's just so sweet, patient, fun, happy, and amazing. I could go on for ages but I won't. I'm so jealous you got to meet him, and so glad he was willing to take time to get pics with you guys! What a gentleman.

  27. I'm still in awe that you got to meet him and that he was so nice too. This comes from the man who apologizes to an interviewing after he's caught eating chocolate on-camera. Ehehe. I hope to meet him one day too. :)

  28. He seemed to be very polite to you guys. That's so lovely. I have met and known a few famous people in my day, but they were not all that wonderful, sadly.
