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.
