Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen take their romance public

Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen have had fans guessing their dating status for weeks, but a romantic night out on Wednesday (July 22) indicated that they are more than just friends. As the pair left a restaurant in central London, it seemed to confirm the status of Hollywood’s hottest new couple.

Ever the gentleman, Tom, 34, was pictured hailing a black cab outside The Wolseley and helping his girlfriend inside.

American beauty Elizabeth looked her usual stunning self, and went casual chic in a silk black top, matching trousers and a stylish short cape.

The 26-year-old actress, who split from her fiancé Boyd Holbrook earlier this year, pulled her blonde hair into a high ponytail to reveal her pretty face.

Tom and Elizabeth were most recently spotted out and about in Oxford, leaving fans to guess that they are an item. The English heart-throb was pictured draping his arm over Elizabeth’s shoulders and walking down the street, after they had enjoyed a quiet lunch together in the university town.

The news that Tom and Elizabeth are dating is particularly exciting for comic book movie fans. The actor is best known for playing Loki in the Thor series, while Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s little sister has recently starred as Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The pair met on the set of I Saw the Light, where they played husband and wife Hank and Audrey Williams. The biopic, which is scheduled for release in November of this year, revolves around country music singer Hank’s rise to fame and sudden death at the age of 29.

Two months ago, Us Weekly reported that Tom and Elizabeth had taken their romance off-screen, but that the couple were taking things slowly. “It’s casual,” the insider said, but that they “text when they’re apart”.

Elizabeth and her ex-fiancé Boyd were together for three years when they decided to call time on their relationship in January. “She wants to make a new life for herself," the source added. “She’s having fun.”
