Susanne Bier who directed ‘The Night Manager’ had previously told The Guardian that she’s yet to grow tired of answering questions about a shirtless Hiddleston. “I’m not bored of that,” she said. “He looks really good without his top on! “

“There’s always a part of you which is wary about fantastic-looking actors, because it almost becomes too easy. But he’s way more interesting than he is good looking.” Hiddleston has also recently become a favourite to play another spy, James Bond, something which he’s said he’s open to.

Speaking to the Sunday Times, Hiddleston said: “Time magazine ran a poll and there were, like, 100 actors on the list, including Angelina Jolie. But, yes, it’s nice to be included in the 100. I’m a huge fan of the series."

"We all went to see Spectre when we were shooting Skull Island in Hawaii. I simply love the theme tune, the tropes and the mythology. I love the whole thing,” he added. “If it ever came knocking, it would be an extraordinary opportunity.”
