Goldblum is active on social media, and is interested in fan activities. For example, he shares fanart of himself or his characters on his Instagram - with credit!

Goldblum is also aware of shipping - including Loki/The Grandmaster, Tom Hiddleston's and his own characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While being honoured as an icon at the 2018 British GQ Awards - and after being introduced by Tom Hiddleston himself - Goldblum said:

You know we were in that movie Thor: Ragnarok, and we played Loki and Grandmaster, respectively. And, now when I go on to pathetically and obsessively — my hashtag Jeff Goldblum on my Instagram account I’ve seen many, many — I don’t know if you’ve seen them, Tom — many, many sketches and renderings and cartoons of our characters involved in what seems to be a deeply romantic and wildly sexual relationship. I tell you this I cherish every single one of those, and I will for the rest of my life. Tom Hiddleston, ladies and gentlemen: a very, very tender lover. I’m sure. I’m positive.[2]
