He's definitely over it. Definitely.

He's definitely over it. Definitely.

It has been nine months since Hiddleswift happened. Nine whole months, and yet we're still just as obsessed with what the hell Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift's relationship was even about almost a year later.

After a whirlwind three months - including trips to meet the parents, awkward kissing on rocks and that Taylor Swift tank top that's still haunting us - Hiddleswift was over, and we were all left feeling a bit confused.

What went wrong? What even happened? Should we have listened to Ryan Reynolds' sad eyes in that photo from Taylor Swift's party?

Tom was confronted about his regrets during a recent interview with The Telegraph, but was quick to defend his relationship.

'What should I regret, in your mind? I would rather not talk about this if that's all right,' he said. 'I'm just thinking about this. Everyone is entitled to a private life.'

He continued: 'I love what I do and I dedicate myself with absolute commitment to making great art and great entertainment and in my mind I don't conflict the two.

'My work is in the public sphere and I have a private life - and those two are separate.'

Rumours swirled that the pair only joined forces in order to deflect from a certain Kimye situation (remember the drama around Kanye's Famous lyrics?).

But when Tom previously spoke about their romance in GQ he insisted their love was true, saying: 'Of course it was real. Taylor is an amazing woman.

'She's generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time.'

At least we've still got Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone making us believe in love again. Oh wait.
