Tom Hiddleston made a splash off screen in 2016. Now, his acting is doing the talking again. 

Tom Hiddleston will hope this year is better than last. Aside from an excellent starring role in TV miniseries The Night Manager, his 2016 was notable for two movies that largely failed to connect with filmgoers (I Saw The Light and High-Rise), and a bizarre three months when he grabbed headlines as Taylor Swift’s boyfriend.

“Haters never win,” he said of Loki. “[And] I just think that’s true about life, because negative energy always costs in the end.”

Look out for positive turns in Kong: Skull Island this month and Thor: Ragnarok in the autumn.

Kong: Skull Island hits theatres March 10.
