Last summer, Tom Hiddleston was thrust into the spotlight thanks to his fleeting romance with the one and only Taylor Swift

Hiddleswift, as the pair was dubbed, was everywhere ― England, Rhode Island, Nashville, Italy. But before we knew it, the fling/relationship/publicity stunt/whatever you want to call it was all over. (For the record, Hiddleston claims it was 100 percent the real deal.)

The high profile relationship seemingly helped Hiddleston become a household name, but the Brit is so much more than that short-lived romance. 

Before Hiddleswift, the actor had gained a solid following thanks to his role as Loki in “The Avengers,” and he scored a role in the acclaimed miniseries “The Night Manager” (for which he’d go on to win a Golden Globe).

Aside from that, he’s pretty easy on the eyes and he’s downright lovable. 

Just look at him cuddling with this baby leopard! 

And here he is dancing:
