Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift to make their red carpet debut

2016-08-20 18:00

Los Angeles - Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift will make their red carpet debut at the Emmy Awards.

The couple - whose relationship was revealed in June, just weeks after Taylor split from Calvin Harris - are set to attend the awards ceremony together on September 18, as Tom is nominated for his role in The Night Manager.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Tom normally doesn't like his public life overlapping with his private life but he is so happy with Taylor that it's the perfect time. While the Emmys may be about celebrating the best shows on television, the organisers that weekend are looking for just one show - Taylor and Tom. The Emmys red carpet itself would give them the most publicity, and organisers have made it clear to Tom and his reps that she is more than welcome to join him.''

Tom, 35, and Taylor, 26, have only been dating for a few months but the actor was previously forced to deny claims his relationship with the star is a ''publicity stunt''.

He said, ''Well, um. How best to put this? That notion is - look, the truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together and we're very happy. Thanks for asking. That's the truth. It's not a publicity stunt.''

And the Thor: Ragnarok star recently insisted he doesn't care what people think of his relationship because he knows he's being ''authentic'' and true to himself.

When asked if the focus on his personal life annoys him, he said: ''I don't know, it comes down to being authentic. Everything you do you have to make sure you truly believe in it and as long as you know that, it doesn't matter what anyone else says about it because the nature of being a public figure is that everyone will have an opinion about anything you do, and as long as you know why you've done something and you've committed to it with authenticity then you're OK.'
