Tom Hiddleston at the press conference for The Avengers in Moscow, 17 April 2012
I got asked over on twitter why I think that of all the Toms we have encountered over time, Moscow Tom still is the most glorious incarnation ever. 
Of course there was no way for me to do that in 140 characters, so I thought I’d just bring my musings over here. 
hiddlememes and debsloth, this is for you.
I guess you have to put Moscow Tom into context to really understand what makes him so special.
The Avengers camp had just come off the world premiere in LA, which had been a rousing affair. I think nowadays we tend to forget that there were no real guarantees back then that something like The Avengers would work as a film, even with all the talent attached. But advance buzz had been more than enthusiastic, early screenings for fans had met with ecstatic reactions - word was out that The Avengers was a massive (and massively enjoyable) blockbuster that delivered on all accounts. By the time the Avengers camp arrived in Moscow, the pressure was OFF in a lot of ways. They could relax quite a bit and just focus on bringing their baby out into the world, riding on a wave of enthusiasm and goodwill from fans and critics alike.
And for Tom personally: Thor had been a success (for which there had been no guarantees either); he had been chosen to play the sole villain in The Avengers, the biggest superhero movie to date; the shoot had been exhausting, sure, but must have also been so exciting and rewarding; early buzz (New York ComicCon and the reactions he got right upon joining twitter in October 2011) must have given him an idea that maybe audiences were responding to Loki and his portrayal of him in ways he had never imagined; in spring 2012 he had just come off shooting The Hollow Crown, which must have been deeply rewarding for him; he had been on holiday to Hawaii; he had just won Best Newcomer at the Empire Awards; the LA premiere of The Avengers and the reactions of fans and critics to Loki must have been overwhelming for him; the press tour of Avengers was surely exhausting, but he also got to tour the world with a group of people that he deeply respected and loved and that had welcomed him into their midst; fan reactions in Moscow were ecstatic and especially he got a reception worthy of a superhero, not a supervillain…all the hard work and all the sacrifices were starting to pay off in ways previously unimagined. Things were looking UP UP UP UP UP for him. They still do of course, but this may still have been a very special time in his life for him. I imagine that he was practically floating on a cloud.
So yeah, all of this paired with his natural inclination to be enthusiastic and enjoy the heck out of whatever life presents him with, I’d say it was no wonder that he was extra luminous and glowing that day. It was pure happiness emanating from him.
So there you have it. My thoughts on Moscow Tom. And now that I’ve given myself lots of Moscow Tom feels, I shall retreat to my picture folder and glomp on photos from that glorious day.
Zhora out.

EXCLUSIVE: LUCKY FAN MEETS HENRY CAVILL AND GINA CARANO ON THE MAGNIFICENT MILE!

Tammy Sanchez met Henry Cavill and Gina Carano yesterday afternoon in Downtown, Chicago! We know all of Henry’s fans (and Gina’s fans) are dying for details and Tammy was gracious enough to give those details exclusively to Henry Cavill Online!
 
Tammy has been a fan of Henry and Gina’s for quite some time so when she heard that they were in Chicago last weekend, she was eager to try and meet them. She was in Downtown, Chicago yesterday afternoon when she read a tweet from some one who just walked by Henry on Michigan Ave. According to Tammy, she was heading south on Michigan Ave. when she spotted Henry and Gina casually strolling down the Magnificent Mile taking in the sights. She eventually caught up to them and this is what she told us about her encounter:
 
I said, “Excuse me, guys?” That’s when Henry turned around and said, “Yes?” As Gina turned around I asked, “Henry? Gina?” and they exclaimed, “Yes!” with a smile. I had to take a brief moment to compose myself before I told them that I was a huge fan of both of them. They thanked me and said that was really nice. I told Gina I saw her movie In The Blood last week and that she was wonderful in it. She smiled and thanked me. I apologized for bothering them and asked if I could have my pictures taken with them and Henry said, “Yes! Of course we would love to!” and Gina said, “Absolutely.”

I got the camera ready on my phone and gave it to Henry before I hugged Gina. She hugged me back while Henry snapped the photo. After the photo was taken, I gave Gina another big hug before Henry handed my phone to her. I stood next to Henry and squeezed him a little while Gina took the photo. I told them both that I loved them very much and I think they’re wonderful. Gina said I was very sweet and Henry thanked me. I asked why they were in Chicago. Henry said, “We’re here just for enjoyment.” I told him I know he is filming the Man of Steel sequel in Michigan and he said, “Yes, we are filming it right now up in Detroit.” I turned to Gina and asked her if this was her first time in Chicago. She said it was not and that she has been here before a couple of times. She then asked, “What about you?” So I told them I was born and raised here. Henry then said, “Well it’s a lovely, lovely city.” I told them that I was glad and they are hanging out in one of the best areas.

I didn’t want to take up any more of their time (I’m totally lying I would have loved to talk to them all day but I did interrupt their vacation after all) so I wrapped up the conversation by thanking them again and that’s when Henry put out his hand, cocked his head, bent over a little, grinned and said, “Well it was a pleasure meeting you.”  I shook his hand, then Gina’s as she said, “It is a pleasure meeting you.” And I said the same and told them that I hope they enjoy the rest of their stay here. They thanked me and we said our goodbyes.
 
It was a short encounter but very sweet. Although I interrupted their afternoon stroll they were not in the least bit annoyed. They were warm, welcoming and very relaxed while talking to me. They are two beautiful people inside and out and I am truly honored to have met them. It was AMAZING!

(P.S. They looked like they were having a great time. Very comfortable, stress fee and HAPPY. God bless them)

We are very happy to know that Henry was able to take some time off from work to enjoy the sights of Chicago since he was not able to while he filmed Man of Steel.
 
A big thank you to Tammy Sanchez for sharing her photos and her story with us!
