“Every villain is a hero in his own mind.” -Tom Hiddleston
Hiddleston claimed to fame playing Loki in Marvel’s superhero series ‘Thor’. Loki was supposed to be the envious,wicked brother of Thor, whom people should have hated. But,instead of loathing, audience sympathized with Loki. The fans even tagged him as a misunderstood deprived soul. No wonder, his impeccable charm worked here. Hiddleston himself declared, ” Every villain is a hero in his own mind.” Well we can’t but agree with him.

This British actor can speak in French and Spanish, German, Italian, Korean and Arabic too. He can read Latin and ancient Greek. Well, that doesn’t end here. Hiddleston is one of those actors who possess the best vocabulary and effortlessly use them in his speech without making it look like a showoff.
#3 He Can Recite Shakespeare At The Drop Of A Hat
He can literally recite Shakespeare at the drop of a hat. He once said “Shakespeare is the reason. I became an actor.” He even claimed he got inspiration from the characters created by Shakespeare to play his characters in the movies. He described Loki as ambitious as Macbeth and manipulative as Iago, enough said.
#4 A Loud and Proud Feminist
He is a strong supporter of #HeforShe campaign. In an interview with Elle U.K. he said, “I believe in the strength and intelligence and sensitivity of women, my mother, my sisters are strong. My mum is a strong woman, and I love her for it.” He also said, his sisters made him know more about what women want, like giving a compliment to their new hairdo. We don’t need to explain why he gives every woman a perfect boyfriend goal.
