Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston were spotted on a romantic dinner date at Hillstone restaurant in Santa Monica, California, just a day after the Blank Space singer failed to pick a single MTV VMA nomination. The Thor actor reportedly arrived in Los Angeles to console the songstress.

According to Daily Mail, the 35-year-old was in LA to console his girlfriend following the MTV VMA snub. The British actor was sporting in a blue jacket, white t-shirt and denims when he landed at LAX airport on Tuesday (26 July). He travelled with a suitcase and a rucksack.

"They were tucked away in the second floor of the restaurant," a source told People magazine. "They seemed to really be enjoying each other's company."

"Tom drove them to the restaurant. They held hands and looked very happy. Taylor was pretty in a black top and skirt," another source said.

The new couple have been spotted on romantic getaways in different countries since they were first pictured kissing in Rhode Island on 14 June. Recently, they were seen enjoying a romantic dinner in Broadbeach, Australia, where Hiddleston was filming for his upcoming movie Thor: Ragnorak.

Although, Swift and Hiddleston's relationship is going strong, E! Online previously reported that the songstress was initially reluctant to date the actor.

"Taylor was hesitant to get involved so quickly after Adam [Calvin Harris]," a source told the celebrity news website. "But she felt that Adam was not giving her what she wanted for sometime so she was ready to move on towards the tail end of their relationship anyway."

"There was an immediate attraction [when Taylor Swift met Tom Hiddleston]," the source said. "She felt like she was a little school girl with a huge crush. She loves the fact that Tom acts like such a mature man. She lives that he is older. She feels very safe and protected with him. The attraction is very strong."

"Tom wants to be with Taylor," the source continued. "Taylor said she thinks he is the one, as odd and new as it sounds."
