Hiddleston appeared on Tuesday's Today show and was asked about his interview with GQ where he talked about his famous ex. "I make a clear distinction between my work, which I absolutely dedicate myself to, which is for the public," he told morning show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie. "I really believe in that relationship between an actor and the audience. You can't call yourself an actor without the audience. And my private life is private."

In an earlier interview with The Telegraph, Hiddleston had a similar response when asked about Swift. "I'm just thinking about this. Everyone is entitled to a private life. I love what I do and I dedicate myself with absolute commitment to making great art and great entertainment, and in my mind I don't conflict the two," he explained. "My work is in the public sphere and I have a private life -- and those two things are separate."

"Taylor Swift is an amazing woman," he shared. "She's generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time."
