Tom Hiddleston is reportedly sacrificing his career for Taylor Swift and friends of the Thor actor who believe he is making a huge mistake are trying "to talk him out of love". Apparently, the 35-year-old actor's relationship is getting in the way of him landing the role of James Bond.

"Tom is a hopeless romantic when it comes to Taylor. His close friends and trusted advisors have been in meetings with him all week trying to talk him out of love," HollywoodLife reported a source as saying.

"While he was in LA those closest to Tom were trying to convince him that continuing to be with Taylor will hurt his career but he refuses to listen to anyone."

"The James Bond role he has been chasing is pretty much off the table unless he dumps Taylor asap, but Tom refuses to listen to reason. Producers have shied away from Tom as the next Bond since his involvement with Taylor. Producers aren't fans of the type of attention Taylor brings to any Bond film," the source said.

"Tom's people are telling him to get away from Taylor before she torpedoes his entire career but his love for her is real and he does not believe that she can damage his sparkling reputation."

The report comes right on the heels of the couple spending some alone time. The 35-year-old actor is currently in Australia filming Thor: Ragnarok, while the Blank Space hitmaker is busy moving into her new Beverly Hills home.

"Taylor is already missing Tom bad. She got so used to being with him all the time, it's a big shock to her system now that he's gone. They aren't supposed to meet up again until the end of the month, but she doesn't think she can make it that long. She's talking about jumping on a plane to Australia to go be with him next week," another source told the gossip site.

Hiddleston and Swift's romance was revealed after pictures of the two kissing on a beach in Rhode Island surfaced on 14 June, just days after the songstress split from DJ Calvin Harris, who she dated for 15 months.
