Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston Are Literally Modeling Their Relationship After Rom-Coms


Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston are big fans of walking in exotic locales. From the rocks of Rhode Island to the streets of London to the Colosseum of Rome, these jet-set lovers have proven in just two weeks they are always up for a casual romantic stroll.

"Taylor is so happy," an anonymous source said to Us Weekly after the pair was most recently seen doing their thing — walking — on a scenic and lovely beach in England. "She's living a British rom-com dream."

Indeed, each of these paparazzi pictures does emit a vibe of its very own romantic comedy. Swift and Hiddleston are a literal walking rom-com. Therefore, we explored some of Hiddleswift's best moments and matched them to their corresponding rom-coms.
