10 Reasons to Love Tom Hiddleston

Over the course of three short years, Tom Hiddleston has quickly become a household name and a fan favorite. Arguably, he is almost as popular with the fans as Chris Hemsworth, at least in the scifi community. Perhaps you don't know who Tom Hiddleston is. Or if you do recognize him, you know him as "that guy from 'Thor' and you don't know what all the fuss is about? If this is the case, then this post is for you.

When I first saw the original 'Thor' film (which I hated. See my review here), I didn't really notice Hiddleston. It wasn't until I saw a sweet story about Hiddleston that went viral that I first took note of him. In 2012, the young son of Hiddleston's friend wanted to "fight" Loki as 'Captain America.' Hiddleston obliged, which I found incredibly touching and sweet. You can see that encounter here and here. Then I saw Hiddleston in 'Midnight in Paris' as F. Scott Fitzgerald, which sealed the deal. Hiddleston has since gone on to reprise his role as the mischievous demigod Loki in 'The Avengers' and most recently 'Thor 2: The Dark World.' Hiddleston repeatedly steals every scene that he's in. So here are the Top 10 reasons to love Tom Hiddleston. If you're weren't convinced before, now you are.

10. Tom Hiddleston is bilingual. Knowing more than one language is always helpful. I am always in the process of "trying" to learn different languages. I love the idea of being multi-lingual, but I don't know if my brain works anymore.
9. Tom Hiddleston is super sweet, especially to his fans. Every time I see him at a premiere or a public function he's always smiling and engaging with people.

8. Tom Hiddleston is dashing. He may not be traditionally handsome, but he's 6' 2", charming, and he has an attractiveness about him.

1. Tom Hiddleston can really act. In a world of pop stars and models turned actors, Tom Hiddleston stands out. For some reason English theatrically trained actors are always the best of the best. I don't know why, but they just are.
