It’s about your last chance. You might have sworn off finding the right person and think, ‘Love’s not for me. Marriage isn’t for me. I will die a bachelor, or I will die a maid. None of your romance, none of your love poems.’ It’s about these two old cynics who are like, 'Nah, it’s not going to happen for me.’ And it does. I think that’s just very redemptive and sweet. And there’s one extraordinary aspect of the play, which is that when Hero’s chastity is in doubt—it’s called into question because of the plot of Don John—an extraordinary thing happens, which is almost unique in all of Shakespeare, which is the man, Benedick, takes the side of the women in blind faith. So he says to Claudio and Don Pedro, I think, 'What you’ve done is appalling. This is an act of brutality.’ He doesn’t explicitly say that, but it’s an amazing thing where the leading male character takes the side of the women, and I think it’s, yet again, evidence of Shakespeare’s extraordinary compassion and understanding of human nature.
—  Tom Hiddleston on his favorite Shakespeare play, Much Ado About Nothing.
Imagine: tom is at the red-carpet and he asked a very flirtatious question; which he replies to by using you , (y/n)

Tom smiled as the interviewer held the mic between them “ so which do you prefer being ? Good boy or bad boy ” she asked making tom throw his head down laughing , you sat on yours and tom sofa smiling . ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ “well I like being a good boy in most situations “ he paused and ran a hand through his hair ” but “ he smirked ”(y/n) my wife , who isn’t very well and that’s why she isn’t here , loves me being a bad boy “ he smirked "and I’ll tell you a secret ” he said leaning in “ I love it ” and winked into the camera

IMAGINE : your boyfriend of a year has just proposed to you , you quickly go to tom to tell him (secretly hoping he will stop you ) and he stands like so :

Once you told Henry you just need a few hours to think you took the next taxi to toms apartment. Running up the stairs after he buzzed you arrived in front of his door with him standing there smiling “ I have news ” your broke the silence “ Henry proposed to me ” you said hoping he would say ’ no ’ or something to show he loved you like you did with him ➖➖ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Tom stood there for a moment frozen “ that’s ” he paused as you saw his eyes become crowed with tears “ that’s great (y/n) ” he nearly whispered . You stood their with a small break in your heart “ yeah it is ” you said hoping to sound convincing. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ You were about to leave when you heard tom mutter “ no ! I’m not letting you go ” just before you could ask what he meant he grabbed your waist and pulled you close and gently laid the most passionate loving kiss you had felt in your life “ marry me (y/n” he whispered against you lips catching your breath “ not a man who only half as loves you as much as me ” tom begged and you simply nodded you head .
