Tom Hiddleston Gives Shout-Out to Partner Zawe Ashton at PCAs

By Michael Feb 19, 2024

Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton played a married couple in the 2019 revival of the play Betrayal — and a real-life romance quickly blossomed between the two.

Though the couple have been effusive about one another’s talent and work, Hiddleston once detailed how his whirlwind romance with Taylor Swift in 2016 taught him to be more protective over his relationships.

“Everyone is entitled to a private life,” the Loki star told The Telegraph in March 2017. “I love what I do and I dedicate myself with absolute commitment to making great art and great entertainment, and in my mind I don’t conflict the two. My work is in the public sphere and I have a private life. And those two things are separate.”

Hiddleston and Ashton debuted their relationship at the Tony Awards in September 2021. One year later in March 2022, they stepped out at the BAFTA Awards where Ashton appeared to wear a diamond ring. Us Weekly confirmed their engagement several days later.

“I feel like every single person who does this job has to figure out ways to keep their working life and their personal life as compartmentalized as possible,” Ashton told Cosmopolitan UK in August 2022 of her romance with Hiddleston. “I think, like anything, it starts with intention. Everything I do in my work is intentional [and] I try to make everything I do in my life as intentional as possible, meaning just being conscious.”
