Tom Hiddleston: "Tilda Swinton introduced me to Gangnam Style"

While she might be known for her icy intensity (famously spoofed in a genius parody Twitter account), Tilda Swinton has been outed as a surprise fan of viral smash Gangnam Style.

In this week's magazine, we spoke to Tom Hiddleston, who has just finished filming Only Lovers Left Alive with the actress, and he revealed her unlikely love for K-pop.

"She’s so fun, just a hoot," he told us. "I’d be in the make-up chair every morning while she showed me stupid YouTube videos. She introduced me to Gangnam Style."

According to Hiddleston, she even played the hipster card when it came to her love for Korean music.

"Seriously, she was into K-pop long before anyone else," he confessed. "She threw a party for me. Tilda Swinton on the dance floor is a force of nature. She knows how to get down."
