Elizabeth Olsen Denies Tom Hiddleston Dating Rumors

‘People can think what they want to think’: Elizabeth Olsen categorically denies Tom Hiddleston romance rumours.

Rumours first started circulating when the pair, who play husband and wife in the forthcoming Hank Williams biopic, headed out for dinner together in London in July.

(The Avengers), best known to audiences as the delightfully wicked Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, took to Twitter recently to reveal to fans a glimpse of the actor’s take on country icon Hank Williams in the first clip for I Saw the Light. And although the chemistry between is palpable, Elizabeth, whose sisters are twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, has insisted that the pair are just old friends and that their meal out was misconstrued. ‘I mean, we definitely are friends and we’ve known each other for about four years,’ she told the publication, adding: ‘We happened to be at a restaurant at a wrong time having dinner. In the clip, Hiddleston captures some of Williams’ nasal bawl in a scene where the actor records the classic ‘Move it On Over’ in a Nashville studio. We all go out to dinner,” she shrugged to Refinery29. “Well, apparently, I’m dating Chris Evans, and apparently, I’ve dated Jeremy Renner, so I guess that… The fact that both acted unpleasantly surprised about being seen only added weight to the so-called “confirmation,” but Elizabeth insists that this was nothing short of a case of people seeing what they wanted to see.

That scene is followed by one of Williams’ wife, played by fellow Marvel alum Elizabeth Olsen (Avengers: Age of Ultron), who displays Audrey Mae Williams’ uncompromising nature as she relays orders to a worker outside her home. Shortly before the paparazzi photo-op, there had been sightings of the two throughout London reported on Twitter, with many saying there was no doubt as to the nature of their relationship. Just lately the pair have been busy promoting their forthcoming movie, which hits US cinemas on November 27, and appear to be more than comfortable in each other’s company. Hiddleston is said to highlight the singer’s tortured and self-destructive behavior as an alcoholic womanizer whose musical talents do little to serve the musician’s hard living ways. The film will predictably draw comparisons to James Mangold’s (The Wolverine) Walk the Line, which drew upon the life of Johnny Cash and June Carter, and saw both its leads- Joaquin Phoenix (Inherent Vice) and Reese Witherspoon (Wild)- earn themselves Academy Award nominations (with Witherspoon winning for Best Actress).

Tom steps into the shoes of the late musician while Elizabeth portrays his wife Audrey Mae, and the 26-year-old actress was won over by the couple’s chemistry. “The first thing that drew me to the relationship was how passionately they hated each other and how passionately they loved each other. I think the way [writer/director] Marc [Abraham] wrote the dynamic of the marriage and their dysfunctional relationship was very honest,” Elizabeth explained. “It wasn’t judgmental.

Before that, Taylor Hackford’s Ray shared many of the same themes regarding it’s subject, Ray Charles (played by Jaime Foxx, in an Oscar winning performance). I really love characters that people assume you’re supposed to not like and then defending them.” Audrey was Hank’s business manager and collaborator as well as his wife.

To get more of a feel for the late singing sensation and his spouse, Elizabeth visited the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville where there was an exhibit dedicated to him. In reality, chances of that happening are very slim, especially since the promo trail for the biopic hasn’t even started yet. “I Saw the Light,” directed by Marc Abraham, will be out in November this year, just in time for the upcoming Oscars season. Upon going through old family collages which weren’t part of the display, the actress was surprised to learn Audrey still followed Hank’s career with dedication even after their divorce in 1952, a year before he died.

It’s been getting some award buzz, but for it to materialize into an actual nomination, both its stars will have to sell it – and sell it hard! – to the press.
