Following my article yesterday here is the response from the man himself
Tom Hiddleston is struggling to deal with rumours that he’s set to be named the next James Bond.
The 35-year-old actor has long been linked to the role of the super suave spy, currently filled by Daniel Craig. His role as secret agent Jonathan Pine in BBC miniseries The Night Manager fuelled the speculation, but Tom is finding it “overwhelming” being asked about the prospect of being cast as 007 on a daily basis.
“It’s all becoming overwhelming… Not the thing of it but the number of people per day who bring it up,” Tom admitted to Reuters at the Los Angeles premiere of The Night Manager on Tuesday night (05Apr16). “It’s like… it’s like it’s actually becoming a little, a weird thing to deal with. I feel like I want to just, make it stop! Because I have no power over it. Anyway, whatever, that’s what being famous is – you have no power over other people’s opinions.”
