Actor Tom Hiddleston has said speculation he is in line to . the next James Bond is becoming “overwhelming” and wishes he could make the rumour mill stop.
Responding to gossip that he is favourite to take on the iconic role at the US premiere of his hit TV series The Night Manager in Los Angeles on Tuesday night, he said: “People have very strong opinions about Bond and why shouldn’t they?
“But it’s difficult to talk about because it’s a completely unreal conversation in a way.
“I haven’t spoken to anyone who makes those films.
“It’s just an idea in people’s minds so it’s quite hard to engage with because it hasn’t come from me if that makes sense.
“It’s odd because it’s becoming overwhelming – not the thing of it, but the number of people per day who bring it up, it’s actually becoming a weird thing to deal with.
“I feel like, I want to just make it stop because I have no power over it, but that’s what being famous is. You have no power over other people’s opinions.”
Hiddleston is the bookies’ favourite ahead of Tom Hardy, Damian Lewis, Idris Elba, Aidan Turner and Henry Cavill.
Although speculation on who will be the next Bond is hotting up, Daniel Craig is yet to officially rule himself out of returning as 007.
