Tom Hiddleston has many reasons to celebrate. The 35-year-old hunk won an Emmy nomination for his role as former British soldier Jonathan Pine in the British-American series Night Manager. He also seems to be very much in love with his girlfriend Taylor Swift.

The couple's high profile romance has sparked-off many conspiracy theories which state that their romance, known to fans as 'Hiddleswift', is nothing more than a publicity stunt for good PR. Speculation even states that this might even be an elaborate ploy for Taylor Swift's next big music video.

The actor, who shot to fame because of his role as the antihero 'Loki' in the 2012 film The Avengers set a few things straight in a candid interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

“The truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we’re very happy,” he told the publication. “Thanks for asking.”

The actor, who is currently in Australia filming Thor: Ragnarok, in which he reprises his role as Loki, added, “That’s the truth. It’s not a publicity stunt.”

Also weighing in on the relationship is Martha Hunt, the Victoria Secret model who forms the core of Taylor Swift's squad. "I love that they're both happy and free together," the supermodel told the press at a Pepsi event celebrating World Emoji Day.

She also commented on the fact that Hiddleston got along very well with Taylor Swift's friends on her 4th of July party weekend.

All is well in the 'Hiddleswift' universe it seems, lest Calvin Harris takes to twitter again or this time maybe there will be a few skeletons in Hiddleston's closet?
