Actor Tom Hiddleston likely broke a few more hearts with his recent statement about his chances at the coveted James Bond role.

The British actor revealed to W Magazine that he’d be very bad as a spy at the moment since everybody knows who he is. His interview with the publication was in April long before Hiddleswift became an item.

“I’d make a terrible spy because everybody knows who I am. But Susanne Bier, the director of The Night Manager, said that she thinks I am very enigmatic and good at keeping secrets,” Hiddleston told W. However, many would consider him perfect for the role on the longtime spy franchise following his performance in the “Night Manager.”

A report even suggested his role as a “hotelier turned secret agent” on the miniseries prepared Tom Hiddleston for the role of James Bond. Bustle cited his character’s travels around the world and his badass look on a motorcycle. Moreover, he has the fighting skills needed to take down the bad guys.

More importantly, Tom Hiddleston oozed confidence and sex appeal worthy of 007’s caliber, the publication noted. The actor revealed some of his sexiest looks that certainly had netizens hot and bothered. His also character slept with three women in the course of the six episodes of the “Night Manager.”

The spy miniseries premiered in the US last April. However, the scenes of the actor’s behind were cut for the American audience, the Daily Telegraph wrote.

“I was surprised to hear that they cut my butt out! I’m here to tell you that my butt is not dangerous. And there are many, many more dangerous things that people are happy to broadcast. I don’t know what that says about the world we live in, but it probably says something,” Hiddleston said. While Tom Hiddleston is undeniably a caliber actor, the public might be more curious at his relationship with Taylor Swift right now. The rumored couple reportedly returned from their romantic getaway, The Sun wrote.
