The Cambridge University scholar, who has a degree in Classics, traded academia for drama school, which saw him land his award-winning role as Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies—and now a romance with Hollywood’s most talk-about singleton, Taylor Swift, 26.
Now his admirers, known as ‘Hiddlestoners’ can see why.
Tall, blonde and famous, Swift’s latest leading men have more than their UK heritage and professional success in common.
Before their June 2 public split, Calvin Harris, 32, and Swift were showbiz's young power couple. The Scottish DJ might not have the upper-crust breeding of Etonian-educated Hiddleston, who counts Prince William and Eddie Redmayne as classmates, but he does look equally as dapper in his underwear.
Harris, 32 who took to the gym when news of his ex’s new romance with Hiddleston broke, has featured in campaigns for Armani after undergoing a makeover befitting his DJ moniker ‘Calvin’.
