That's because he was supported by a familiar face in promoting Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes.

As well as his long-term girlfriend Jade Olivia, the actor was joined by his Harry Potter colleague Rupert Grint.

The pair embraced and posed for pictures on the red carpet, before Tom joked: "I've had a crush on him for years and finally he's coming out, this is great!"

After the night, the blonde heartthrob tweeted: "Great night, great film, great T-shirt modelled by Rupert.
