Elizabeth Olsen is an American actress who has been romantically linked to her Avengers co-star English actor Tom Hiddleston on more than one occasion. Let’s finally answer the question: did Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleston date?
As far as Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleston are concerned, they’ve never dated. The pair met in early 2012, but they became close while working on ‘I Saw the Light’ in 2015, and rumors that they were in a relationship became headlines on mainstream publications.
Elizabeth and Tom are good friends, but has it ever been more than that? Who have the two dated in the past, and what is their relationship status now? Let’s find out.
How Did Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleson Meet?
Since they’re both such private people, for a while nobody was really sure how Elizabeth and Tom met. They crossed paths in 2011 at the premiere of ‘War Horse’ and again in 2012 at a Mulberry fashion show so it was thought that they met at either event.
Elizabeth clarified to E! News, “It must’ve been about four years ago, I think it was around 2012 or something, and we did a chemistry read and neither of us did the job. But what we got out of it was ‘Oh, we work similarly together, this could be fun, we could have fun working together’.”
Elizabeth and Tom became close while working on the 2015 biographical film ‘I Saw the Light’. The dynamic duo played husband-and-wife in the film — and they did so quite convincingly.
Soon after the movie premiered, the world at large seemed to believe that their on-screen romance trickled into their real lives and the rumor mill started spinning as they were spotted out at restaurants and events together.
A handful of sources divulged that Elizabeth and Tom were indeed casually dating, but Elizabeth was quick to squash that rumor.
She told Refinery29, “I mean, we definitely are friends and we’ve known each other for about four years. And we happened to be at a restaurant at a wrong time having dinner. We all go out to dinner….No. I mean people can think what they want to think.”
Who Has Elizabeth Olsen Dated?
Elizabeth’s first known relationship was with Boyd Holbrook, who she dated from 2012 to 2015. The pair reportedly got engaged, but by January 2015 the wedding — and the relationship itself — was off and over.
In February of 2017, Elizabeth met Robbie Arnett while on holiday in Mexico. The two seemed to have hit it off as they’ve supposedly been together ever since.
Who Has Tom Hiddleston Dated?
Much like Elizabeth, Tom goes out of his way to keep his private life private. As a result, little is known about his love life but his is a little better documented than Elizabeth’s is.
Tom has a string of ex-girlfriends and past relationships behind him. Of course, he may have secretly dated others and managed to keep the relationship out of the public eye.
His first known relationship was a three-year rendezvous with British actress Susannah Fielding. The pair dated from 2008 to 2011 but called it quits because they both needed to focus on their acting careers.
Next, the star was linked to Jessica Chastain in 2013 but neither of them confirmed nor denied the rumors. In the same year, Tom was reportedly dating music producer Jane Arthy.
As of 2020, Tom has been romantically linked to Zawe Ashton who he met while working on the West End production of ‘Betrayal’ in London. Of course, Tom is keeping the relationship on the down-low but according to The Sun, the pair are indeed a couple — who even share an Atlanta home.
