Hollywood's newest power couple Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston, 35, were surrounded by bodyguards as they enjoyed a romantic holiday in Rome, Italy.

Soul Men marks the final big screen appearance of comedian Bernie Mac and soul singer Isaac Hayes who both passed away last month.
The two legends share the screen with acting great Samuel L. Jackson in this comical farce about two surviving members of a 70s soul group (Mac and Jackson) who come out of retirement for a VH1 tribute to soul music.
