About 20 minutes after she’d broken up with Calvin Harris, Taylor Swift was pictured looking loved up with Loki AKA Tom Hiddleston, demonstrating possibly the fastest bounce-back from a break-up of all time.

Well a load of Hollywood insiders are suggesting that 35-year-old Tom is only dating 26-year-old Taylor because it substantially boosts his chances of replacing Daniel Craig as the next James Bond.

Bond producers are looking for a world-renowned actor to take on the role, and while he’s a pretty big name in the UK, he’s not really super-established elsewhere yet.
A source confirmed:
Tom is making a huge power play dating Taylor in his quest to be the next James Bond. Producers are desperate for the next Bond to be a universal name that will boost the brand worldwide, especially in America.
It does make sense from Loki’s perspective if you think about it. You do a UK TV series (Night Manager), you play an Avengers villain, you date Taylor Swift and you do all the talk shows and boom – you’ve hit so many audiences that suddenly you’re the #1 name being batted around to play Bond. Also works out for Taylor Swift because when they break up she’s got some sick material to turn into a song that every girl under 30 will jizz themselves over.
Sorry Idris Elba, maybe next time.
