Tom Hiddleston’s relationship with Taylor Swift might not do him any favors to becoming the next James Bond.

The British actor is on the list of likely contenders who could be the next James Bond. The list came about after Daniel Craig’s announcement that Spectre would be his last movie with the franchise. Hence, the list reads like the who’s who of Hollywood—from Damian Lewis to Tom Hardy, Aidan Turner, and of late, James Norton.

The notable performance of Tom Hiddleston in The Night Manager earned him a spot on the list as well. His portrayal of an MI6 agent in the television series made it easy for many to envision him as the next 007. Earlier rumors suggested it even impressed Bond producer Barbara Broccoli. However, the British actor remained coy about the possibility. Moreover, he expressed certainty that Daniel Craig would do more films for the franchise in the starring role. Recently, Hiddleston also said he would make a terrible spy if ever it happened.

Regardless of his statements, Hiddleston remained a fan favorite. That is until the world learned about Hiddleswift. Consequently, news of his relationship with Taylor Swift seemed to overshadow discussions about his chances for the coveted role. Kevin Lincoln of Vulture surmised the implication of his current romance. Lincoln pointed out the prestige that comes with playing Bond and cited previous actors who played the role.

“He’s essentially an embodiment of patriarchy, the lance of imperial England. He’s so virile that there’s a whole line of women referred to as Bond Girls. It’s essential to the myth that he’s irresistible and unobtainable, that he moves from woman to woman — and if he falls in love with you, you die. Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan were such great Bonds because they conveyed an unflappable independence, an ultimate consistency of self, without contradicting the necessary Bond-ian truisms,” Lincoln wrote.

Thus, his recent escape from an Australian reporter along with his July 4 escapade could affect his chances as the next James Bond.
