Roger is probably one of the best players that ever played the game. He’s been so great to tennis, because he is such a personality. Everybody loves Roger - the way he plays, the way he acts on the court as a sportsman, off the court. Everybody’s got so much respect for him now, and I think the longer he stays in tennis, the better it is for tennis.” - Stefan Edberg

Havie, what is tom's actual hair color? In some pics it looks brown but everyone refers yo him as a ginger but he was born blonde and was blonde as of a few years ago. Happy Easter. Xoxo

Hello, little gray face!

He is a natural blonde.  From Armadillo and Nicholas Nickleby on to Casualty, The Gathering Storm, Suburban Shootout, Unrelated, Archipelago, Wallander, Return To Cranford, etc. - all those projects from the beginning of his career have him in his “golden retriever” state.

Branagh’s Thor was the first time it was dark.  He’s gone back and forth a couple of times. However, he hasn’t always dyed it right back to blonde.  It was dark a few times 2010-2011 for Thor, The Deep Blue Sea, and The Avengers.

The ginger happened for Henry V in fall 2011 and then he went back to blonde for Henry IV in early 2012 and it was still longish (circa Feb 2012 meeting Miss Piggy).

The last time he was blonde and truly curly was summer of 2012, Wimbledon Tom playing Ping Pong in his Armani Tux.  *sigh*

Anyways, I won’t bore everyone with a thesis on tracking his hair color over the years.  

I do think it is getting darker as he ages and it just appears darker when it’s shorter; add some hair product and it will be darker still.  You can see in the picture he showed for the Emergency Lesson of four year old Tom that he had darker roots even as a child.  It’s not uncommon for blonde children to turn brown or ginger as they get older.

So whatever shade he is at any given moment, the season and where he might be filming will play a part.  He got pretty blonde shooting Kong.  

Thanks for the messge and Happy Easter to you as well!

Roger Federer defeats Rafael Nadal 6-4 3-6 6-1 3-6 6-3 in the 2017 Australian Open final, to claim his 5th Australian Open, 18th grand slam and 89th career title. Federer is the first man in history to win at least 5 titles at 3 different majors, the oldest men’s singles player to win a major in 45 years, and the lowest ranked seed to win the Australian Open in 15 years. This marks his first time beating Nadal in a major in almost 10 years, since Wimbledon 2007 and his first grand slam title in almost 5 years, since Wimbledon 2012. Congratulations, Roger.

Duckie Curls

@the-library-mouse So I tried to search my blog and the best I can figure is that at some point in the summer of 2015, @beaglebitch said something about Tom having duckie curls, you know, like on a lil duckie?  Think Prince Hal Tom and Henry V Tom from late 2011 and into 2012, especially around Wimbledon when he showed up wearing that Armani tux from the Avengers London premiere.  Casually.  Ugh.  Anyways, the curls are lovely and perfect.  So it did not originate from my pea brain.  BB gets all the credit.  Maybe she can shed more light on the subject.  But I love the duckie curls because William Buxton was my first impression of SAF and he’s the one I picture when I started The Haven and A Pocketful of Jelly Beans.

Hiddles fans, I have a bone to pick with you. Why didn’t you tell me that Grace Jones aka THE ORIGINAL hung out with Tom Hiddleston aka #mywhiteboo last year? I am seriously swooning over these photographs! ❤ 

This was at Evian’s Live Young VIP area at Wimbledon in 2012.
