Remember at the height of Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift’s romance last summer, when the actor was photographed in an “I [Heart] T.S.” tank-top?

Well, he’s finally addressed what was going on there.

As you may recall, the pair’s relationship was plagued with rumours they were staging their romance for publicity, with the pictures of Tom in the infamous tank-top as he splashed around with Taylor and her friends at a Fourth Of July party serving as the icing on the cake.

But while they’ve both remained fairly tight-lipped since their relationship drew to a close last year, he’s finally had the chance to offer his side of the story regarding the photos that had everyone talking.

Speaking about how the aftermath affected him (and continues to affect him, according to the GQ reporter) personally, he continued: “I have to be so psychologically strong about not letting other people’s interpretations about my life affect my life. A relationship exists between two people. We will always know what it was.

Although this is the most he’s said on the break-up since it happened, Tom first addressed the split back in September, when he insisted that he and the ‘Mean’ singer were still on good terms.
