The British actor, who is reluctant to discuss his private life, has been linked to co-stars Jessica Chastain and Elizabeth Olsen but has never gone public with a relationship since he found fame as Loki in Thor.

He is still on the lookout for a girlfriend but isn't in a hurry because he is enjoying bachelor life, telling Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "I’m having a brilliant time, I’m still single. I don’t mind though."

The 35-year-old has won legions of female fans thanks to films including The Avengers and Crimson Peak, and his recent bottom-baring turn in TV miniseries The Night Manager, but he has kept his feet on the ground and can sense when people are interested in him for the wrong reasons.

“It’s easy to see what intentions people have, but I’m still very close to my roots, and hang out with all my friends from home," he adds. "It’s all smoke and mirrors, I know what’s real.”

Tom spoke to the publication at the afterparty of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) TV Awards in London on Sunday night (08May16), where he was spotted taking over the DJ booth to play Michael Jackson hits, having a dance-off with Sherlock star Martin Freeman and twirling around a mystery blonde on the dancefloor.

According to the reports, he continued partying at the Mondrian Hotel in London until 5am on Monday morning (09May16), just a week after he was caught on video busting a move with Taylor Swift at the Met Gala party on 2 May (16).
