Yesterday was incredible. Now it almost feels like it didn't happen to us at all. But let's start at the beginning.

On Tuesday evening a friend of ours found out that Tom's working on the new Jarmusch film around here and asked if we'd like to go look for him. Not quite believing we had an actual chance to meet him, we still agreed. I mean, nothing to lose and everything to gain, so why not?

Next day, on Wednesday, we had an adventurous trip to the studios, because naturally, public transport never works the way it should and when travelling to an unknown location you'll never arrive at your destination point straight away.
But after running around in the terribly hot weather of that day for around an hour, our trio was finally there!
We met a few other girls who waited in front of the studio complex gates, unsurprisingly, for the same reason and even encountered an old friend of ours we haven't seen for five years.
We weren't lucky on that day, though. After asking around for a bit, it turned out Tom wasn't shooting at all, but would be there again the next day.

And so Thursday it was.

At least now we knew where to go and had no big problems on the way. This time, though, there were more fans waiting outside the gates - but that was kinda to be expected. Another session of waiting began. We spent our time talking to people, had to deal with an extremely unfriendly gatesman (the nice one from the day before wasn't there, sadly), joked around with a bunch of costumed extras from another set who spent their break outside and waited and waited and... you get the idea.

It was already getting late when a man approached us, looking quite grim but not unfriendly. Tuned out, it was Tom's driver (aka bodyguard). He told us they would work later then usually, til 9 or 10 pm and thus, Tom won't be able to spend much time with us. Of course we answered, that it was absolutely fine and no problem whatsoever - hell, just getting to see him at all would be awesome. Then he said Tom could probably "only" make a group photo - fine with us, really.
Still having a lot of time and now happy with the confidence we'll really get to see him, our group at last went to buy some food.
In the meantime three autograph hunters appeared out of nowhere (bet they had someone working around the studios to tell them when to come) and started to be REALLY ANNOYING. In all honesty, I've hardly ever met such ill-mannered people.

Anyway, now we come to the really good part.
The actors started to leave the set. First, a big black VW drove out, stopped and Tilda Swinton, who's also starring in the movie, got out to sign some autographs. A photo of her:…

Then Jim Jarmusch himself drove by, but didn't stop.

And then finally: Tom was there and got out of the car! (proof or it never happened… )

And wow! Just wow, honestly.
I've heard he was nice to his fans but I'd never expected THIS kind of nice. He was just so genuine and charming and it was simply incredibly that he would take the time after working from early in the morning to 9 o'clock in the evening!
And not just that! He made photos with us, not just one group photo, but one with each fan, signed our stuff, talked to every single person who approached him and was just so so so sweet and perfect!
I was simply overwhelmed with feelings. That smile, that voice, THAT MAN! Everything on him was simply amazing. It was impossible to look away from him at all.
On top of that, he seemed to enjoy our company, which made the whole experience even greater. And although we were quite a few, all of us pulled ourselves together, were super-polite and stayed as calm as we could manage, so that Tom even commented on it :D
On a side note: his driver aka bodyguard told that autograph hunters off - cudos to the guy!

Well, after a while the driver urged Tom to leave, which was surely the right thing to do - the man needs some sleep. We cheered as he drove away, waving to us until the car turned at the corner.

So that's the story.
We talked to Tom Hiddleston! We made photos with him! We have his autograph on our Thor comic book (… ) and he commented on how he liked that particular picture :D

And the man's not just the nicest, sweetest and most charming person alive, he's also photogenic to the realm of impossibility. We've already submitted a picture of him ( ) and are going to submit another one.
Apart from that, here's a bunch of other photos we're not going to post separately, but still there's the awesome Tom Hiddleston on them:………………

Ah... it was a great day, the meeting was worth all the waiting, to say the least.

Meeting him is my main goal at the moment. Great pictures you have there :D
RoamtheGnome Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012
I really wanna meet this guy. He sounds really charming and polite, totally something you wouldn't expect from a famous actor. Sadly I don't think he was noticed much before his appearance in Thor. I'm glad he'd got the attention now though because his acting is brilliant.
Green-Makakas Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This is very true. But now he has got all the attention he deserves!

That's okay. I totally didn't squeal when I saw the photo of him with pen between his teeth. Definitely not.
AmericanAngel117 Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
He does it on purpose I swear. He is just sexy 24/7 without even trying.
IntoxicatingFreedom Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
