Note to anyone interviewing Tom Hiddleston in the near future - he'll completely dodge any of your Taylor Swift questions and he'll do it with a twinkle in his eye.
The Kong: Skull Island star is clearly a world away from his 'I 3 TS' T-shirt days - as the Today Show presenter Savannah Guthrie learned first hand while trying to quiz him about his split from Taylor.
Savannah asked the actor on live TV on Tuesday (March 7) what was it like to "be in the public eye" at the height of publicity surrounding his romance with Taylor last year. Think she got a juicy answer?
After an exasperated sigh and sly chuckle, Tom shut her down every so politely: "I make a clear distinction between my work - which I absolutely dedicate myself to and is for the public.
"I really believe in that relationship between an actor and the audience. You can't call yourself an actor without the audience. And my private life is private!"
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why Tom Hiddleston is one of the finest gentlemen walking the earth today. (Take note Calvin Harris!)
Tom recently did discuss his relationship with Taylor in a GQ interview, in which he confirmed that a) the relationship was "real" and b) he considers his former girlfriend to be "generous and kind and lovely".
Meanwhile, we're just hoping he signs up for the second season of his Emmy-winning spy series The Night Manager since we know that director Susanne Bier is working to make it happen. We're sure even T-Swift is with us on this one.
