Tom Hiddleston is the gift that keeps on giving. We all know that by now. Beyond being a fan favorite in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for playing the ever-slippery Loki, his charming and affable personality makes him game for whatever - and his on-the-spot impressions have become something he's now known for.

During a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Hiddleston appeared with fellow actors Anne Hathaway, Sir Kenneth Branagh, and, most importantly, Robert De Niro. I say he's the most important because Norton put Hiddleston somewhat on the spot by challenging him to do some of his impressions. Of course, he nailed his Owen Wilson and Christopher Walken, but then he tackled impersonating both De Niro and Al Pacino from the classic scene from Heat, the first time Pacino and De Niro ever shared a screen together.

That might be the first time the normally unflappable Hiddleston has ever gotten flustered in an interview. His De Niro impression may not have been as spot-on as the rest, but wouldn't you be nervous trying to impersonate a Hollywood legend mere feet from that legend? I wouldn't have even tried.

But that's why we love Tom Hiddleston, and will probably always continue to, until he just stops being so damn endearing.
