Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston canoodle in the ocean at star-studded Fourth of July party

Tom Hiddleston wasn't holding back his affection for girlfriend Taylor Swift as she hosted an A-list Fourth of July bash at her Rhode Island mansion. The British actor and his superstar love joined famous friends as they splashed around and canoodled in the sea.

Rumoured James Bond actor Tom, 35, wore a vest emblazoned with 'I heart TS' as he and the 26-year-old singer partied with stars including Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds and Orange is the New Black actress Ruby Rose.

And, just in case there was anybody left in doubt of his feelings for pop star Taylor, Tom also showed off a fake love heart tattoo on his arm – with a 'T' in the middle.

Taylor showed off her figure in a red Forever 21 bikini and, despite supermodels Karlie Kloss and Gigi Hadid being present, Tom only had eyes for her. The loved-up couple were snapped hugging in the water before heading back to the beach.

The Shake if Off singer is getting a bit of a reputation for hosting amazing Fourth of July parties, and last year she was joined by Gigi, Victoria's Secret model Martha Hunt and Empire actress Serayah – as well as ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris.

She and Calvin ended their 15-month relationship earlier this year, just before Taylor and Tom went public with their surprising romance, and it's been reported her new man is already inspiring her musically. A source told Hollywood Life: "When she's with Tom, she feels completely free to be herself and doesn't feel like she has to hold anything back.

"Tom really encourages her to be as authentic and as true to herself as possible. She feels like he really values her feelings and her opinions. He's incredibly supportive and she feels more confident within herself."
