Tom Hiddleston Is Basically A Human Emoji

by James Tison

The extent of fans' love for Tom Hiddleston really knows no bounds. Like, personally, I love Tom Hiddleston more than 30 Rock's Liz Lemon loved ham (and Liz Lemon REALLY loved ham) — and can you blame me? There's no getting enough of him! His swagger, his immense acting ability, his charming demeanor...it's all amazing. Personally, though, what I love most is Tom Hiddleston's pretty and remarkably expressive face. No matter where he is, he just can't stop scrunching up his face in weird and quirky shapes: Sometimes he's as excited as a five-year-old boy on Christmas morning, other times he's as pensive as a Greek god holding the world on his shoulders. Don't believe me? Just take a look at these GIFs of Tom Hiddleston, because there's no better proof.

Whether he's playing a superhero villain or Great Gatsby scribe F. Scott Fitzgerald, Hiddleston will find a way to use his expressive face to make bold choices for his characters. The tendency doesn't stop once he's off-screen: Hiddleston can communicate a million thoughts with the bat of an eye or a flash of his toothy grin, and he regularly does so in interviews. It's at least 40 percent of what makes him so beloved (the other 60 percent is a mix of charm, intelligence, being in The Avengers, and looking great in tight white shirts, of course).

The man is a walking emoji and I have the proof! Here are the seven times Tom Hiddleston made his face look like an emoji, and thus, made us love him all the more.
