What Makes Avengers Villain Tom Hiddleston Geek Out?

|

While comic book fans the world over are totally freaking out over The Avengers this weekend (or last weekend, if they’re those lucky folks overseas), we kind of wonder what the stars of the movie geek out about themselves. VH1 News asked Tom Hiddleston at the New York premiere of the movie, and the answer makes him seem the very opposite of his super evil character Loki. In fact, we won’t be surprised if it clenches him the victory in our Summer Movie Villains poll.

“I’m quite a geeky runner; I love running,” he admitted. “I’m also a geek about tennis. I love watching tennis, I get obsessed by it, I don’t know why. I think I find it so dramatic, like, because after, at a certain level, it doesn’t matter how good you are and how much training you’ve done, it’s like up here [in your head] and in [your heart]. So when you see people like Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal and [Novak] Djokovic go at it, it’s just like a battle of wits and heart. I’m getting geeky about it right now!”
