Tom Hiddleston on His Boarding School Shenanigans

THING. THEY LOVE WHEN YOU'RE WRONG. DO YOU SPEAK OTHER LANGUAGES? YOUR SPANISH WAS SHAKY. [ LAUGHTER ] >> I SPEAK A LITTLE FRENCH. >> Jimmy: OH, DO YOU? OKAY. >> BUT ONLY BECAUSE I'VE WORKED THERE A LOT. >> Jimmy: I SEE. >> SO I STUDIED IT A BIT IN SCHOOL. >> Jimmy: DID YOU GO TO BOARDING SCHOOL? >> YEAH. >> Jimmy: IT'S NOT SUCH A BIG THING HERE, BOARDING SCHOOL. IF YOU'RE BAD, YOU GO TO BOARDING SCHOOL HERE. YOUR PARENTS HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF YOU. >> MAYBE THE SAME IS TRUE IN THE UK AND I JUST DIDN'T KNOW. >> Jimmy: WAS IT AN ALL-BOYS SCHOOL? >> YEAH, IT WAS. IT WAS KINDA MIXED AND THEN IT WAS ALL BOYS IN THE TEENAGE YEARS. >> Jimmy: I SEE. JUST WHEN YOU WANT IT TO NOT BE ALL BOYS. >> YEAH. I ALWAYS SAY BOARDING SCHOOL IS LIKE A MIXTURE OF HARRY POTTER AND THE GREAT ESCAPE. >> Jimmy: OKAY. >> WITHOUT THE MAGIC OR THE SECOND WORLD WAR. >> Jimmy: BUT BROOMSTICKS. >> PLENTY OF BROOMSTICKS. BUT THE FRIENDS I MADE ARE CLOSE TO THIS DAY. >> Jimmy: YEAH, RIGHT. >> BECAUSE YOU'RE LUMPED IN THERE TOGETHER AND YOU TRY TO THINK OF CRAZY THINGS TO DO. I REMEMBER, I WAS 8 OR 9, AND YOU'RE IN DORMITORIES OF TEN BOYS. AND YOU'RE ALL KIDS. SO IT'S LIKE, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO TONIGHT? WE'RE GOING TO DORM RAID. WHICH MEANS, YOU GET YOUR PILLOWS, AFTER LIGHTS OUT, GET THE PILLOW AT THE END OF THE CASE, MAKE IT A KIND OF CLUB, AND GO AND START A HUGE PILLOW FIGHT WITH THE NEXT DOOR DORMITORY, AND THE WINNER IS DETERMINED BY HOW MANY PILLOWS YOU DESTROY. BASICALLY. >> Jimmy: I SEE. YOU WANT TO DESTROY YOUR OWN PILLOW? >> YOU JUST WANT THERE TO BE FEATHERS EVERYWHERE AND -- >> Jimmy: BLEEDING? >> PREFERABLY. YOU NEVER FORGET THOSE. >> Jimmy: BOYS ARE THE WORST. YOU SHOULDN'T PUT A BUNCH OF 8, 9-YEAR-OLD BOYS TOGETHER. IT TURNS INTO "LORD OF THE FLIES" IMMEDIATELY. RIGHT?
