Thor star Tom Hiddleston has decided to let go of his trademark clean shaved look and opted for a more rugged appearance at the Early Man World Premiere held at the BFI IMAX in London on Sunday (14 January).

Fans are shocked and swooned as the 36-year-old actor sported his new rugged look with a beard and long hair. He also wore a pair of glasses for the occasion. The Emmy winning actor looked sharp in a violet two-piece suit and slim-fit shirt. He accessorised his look with a spotty tie.

Fans are going gaga over Hiddleston's new look as they took to social media to share their delight. A user wrote saying, "Tom, I truly think You have already stolen my heart," another said, "He looks so good my man."

An ardent fan of the Night Manager star swooned over his new rugged affair and tweeted saying, "There should be a warning label with the beard and glasses photo. Although to be fair, he is lovely in all of them. He's always lovely. His heart is so stunning, it shines out of his face and those gorgeous eyes *sigh*"

The actor, who rose to fame by playing Loki in Thor, was also joined by actors Eddie Redmayne and Game of Thrones' star Maisie Williams. "My man Tom Hiddleston is well and alive, rocking the Henry V look at the Early Man premiere," tweeted a fan.
