Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleston further fuel romance rumours

By Sarah Kelsey

Are Elisabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleston dating? If new photos snapped of the ultra-good-looking duo walking in Oxford are any indication, it seems the answer may be yes.

The images show the movie stars walking down the street after enjoying a quiet lunch together. Dressed in jeans and a blazer, the 34-year-old actor can be seen draping his arm over the 26-year-old's shoulders. Elizabeth, who is clearly on her sartorial A-game in cigarette pants, sandals and a dark trench coat, nestles into her rumoured love. Her mustard-yellow The Row bag, surely courtesy of sisters Ashley and Mary-Kate, floats behind her in a pop of colour.

While the stars have yet to confirm their relationship, an insider told Us Weekly back in May that Elizabeth and Tom were indeed romancing one another and trying to keep things quiet.

"It's casual," said the source, adding that the two "text when they're apart."

The pair met while starring as husband and wife in the new film I Saw the Light, a biopic about singer-songwriter Hank Williams. They also starred in the big screen action film Avengers: Age of Ultron. Tom plays Loki, while Elizabeth made her Marvel debut as Scarlet Witch.

If confirmed, this would be the first person "Lizzie" has dated since splitting with her longtime fiancé Boyd Holbrook in January. She's subsequently been spotted sitting front row at several fashion shows and on many a red carpet. Tom's been keeping busy, too, and can be seen in three other films in 2015: Crimson Peak, Unity and High Rise.
