During their three months together, the couple's frequent and affectionate public outings in the presence of paparazzi led some to speculate that the relationship wasn't real but rather an attempt to gain headlines. "The Avengers" actor set the record straight about that just one month into their courtship.

"Well, um. How best to put this?" Hiddleston said when asked about the veracity of it all by The Hollywood Reporter. "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."
