Tom Hiddleston says Taylor Swift romance is 'authentic'

Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift have been dating since June.

Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift shocked their fans after going public with their romance in June. Following that, rumours started making rounds stating that the couple's relationship is fake.

However, at San Diego Comic-Con, the 35-year-old actor cleared the air, and revealed that he has true feelings for the Bad Blood hitmaker. When asked how he is handling the latest attention, Hiddleston said: "I don't know, it comes down to being authentic. Everything you do you have to make sure you truly believe in it and as long as you know that, it doesn't matter what anyone else says about it because the nature of being a public figure is that everyone will have an opinion about anything you do, and as long as you know why you've done something and you've committed to it with authenticity then you're okay."

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Hiddleston had addressed their relationship reports. He said: "Well, um. How best to put this? The truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we're very happy. Thanks for asking."

"That's the truth. It's not a publicity stunt," he added.
