I’d like to let you guys know, especially those who have sent the asks, that I haven’t published any inbox because I just got so flustered with the lovely compliments, and that for those of you who asked the sources of some quotes, I will have to look for them. And then hopefully I can deal with my sweaty palms and publish them here. Till then, stay tuned and thank you for still following after such long silence! ‘HI’ to all of you old and new followers and I hope you’re enjoying yourself here!
“I’m really proud of the audition. It proved a lot to me as an actor because I’ve never committed so much to an audition before. The guys at Marvel called and said, “Can you put on as much muscle as you can in six weeks?” So I went from 180 pounds to 198 pounds and I had 7% body fat. I’ve still got the pictures to prove it. I’ve never challenged myself like that before. I basically showed myself what was possible.
“In a way, it was a gift – and I have no regrets about it at all. I’ve never once thought, ‘I wish I were playing Thor.’”
—Tom Hiddleston on auditioning for Thor.

I’ve got some messages asking for the quote sources. For some reasons, I couldn’t put the link in the (x) thingie, so I put the link as a click-through on the image. This means you can check the interview/sources by hovering & clicking the pic (if available) so that the post will not be too cluttered. Hope this helps, until I can figure out why the (x) thingie doesn’t work for me.
Thank you for your patience!
