Tom Hiddleston is staying mum about his new relationship with Taylor Swift after dodging questions from reporters about their new romance.

The British actor and his pop star girlfriend landed in Australia on Thursday, where he is filming the third instalment of the Thor franchise. Since then, the loved-up couple has been spotted out and about around the country's Gold Coast, where a curious reporter from local news station 9News tackled Tom while he was taking a breather from a jog on Saturday.

The newsman asked the star, "How is Taylor enjoying the beautiful Gold Coast?", to which Tom laughed awkwardly and politely responded, "I'm not going to answer that, if it's all right."

The reporter continued to prod by asking what he and Taylor were planning to doing during their time in Australia, to which the Brit said, "I don't know... It's just good to be back."

Eager to change the subject, Tom wasn't as reluctant to answer questions about filming Thor: Ragnarok, telling 9News he is "very much" looking forward to reprising his role as Loki and reuniting with co-stars, including Aussie hunk Chris Hemsworth.

"I was on set yesterday and met everybody and saw Chris and (director) Taika Waititi and can't wait to get going," he said.

Although he refused to discuss Taylor, the couple was later photographed walking hand-in-hand following a dinner date in Broadbeach at the Gemelli Italian restaurant on Sunday.

"Tom looked smitten with her as they talked softly and she giggled a lot," a source tells Us Weekly. "They were beaming as they gave warm smiles to onlookers, like any new couple who just can't hide their feelings for each other."

The couple's trip Down Under is the latest stop on their worldwide whirlwind romance ever since their relationship went public last month.

They have spent time together in Nashville, Tennessee, Tom's native England, Rome, Italy, and most recently celebrated America's Independence Day holiday at Taylor's Rhode Island retreat.
