Remember when Matt Healy made that boneheaded comment (opens in new tab) about not wanting to date Taylor Swift because her superior fame levels would threaten his masculinity? Looks like he's not the only one.

Reports say (opens in new tab) that Hiddleswift is on the rocks (opens in new tab) as he worries he's acting as her "glorified escort," while she's paranoid he's using her to further his career. "Tom's need for their relationship to be so public so quickly makes her uncomfortable," a source said to the Daily Mail (opens in new tab). "She tried to be okay with it in the beginning but fears he is in love with the idea of her and not falling in love with her for the right reasons."

A legitimate concern, given how before June (opens in new tab)—or even that Met Gala video—the non-BBC-watching world was like, "Tom Hiddle-whata?" It's just funny how the other half of the story always stays the same.
