Tom Hiddleston: "I'm Not A Conservative"

For all the efforts of Mike Read and JimNick, NickDavidson, the Conservative Party could do with some cool celebrity supporters to trounce Labour’s Richard Wilson and Prunella Scales. It may not, however, be a good idea to suggest to Tom Hiddleston that now is the moment for him to come to the aid of David Cameron’s party.

I’m not in the Conservative Party,” harrumphs the 32-year-old actor, who is currently appearing in Coriolanus at the Donmar.

But, Tom, you went to Eton and you are posh. “It’s just an accident of birth,” he ripostes in Time Out London. “And I’m sorry if you are offended by that. I’m not a big fan of the class system, to be honest. It feels ugly to me. If the work is good, it doesn’t matter where you come from.”


Which political party do you support, ONTD? Are you a Conservative or are you a Liberal?
