Tilda Swinton reacts to latte art of her face in best possible way: ‘I adore every second of this’

Actress Tilda Swinton reacting to a barista’s latte art of her face on a cup of coffee is the best thing you’ll see today.

Her reaction was caught on camera and posted on TikTok by Brian Leonard, a latte artist who recreates faces of famous people on his coffee. Brian – aka @BaristaBrianLeo – said Swinton’s reaction was his “all-time favourite”.

The video shows Swinton videoing the latte and dishing out compliment after compliment to barista Brian, who created the drink.

“You have GOT to be kidding,” declares the actress as she sees the latte.

Inspecting it closer, she gushes over the art, running to grab her her camera and saying: “That is unbelievable. I can’t believe it. How did you do it? I just can’t believe how beautiful that is. That’s so great.”


Replying to @Tom O’Connell this one is up there for sure, she was so gracious and loved the latté art, Iconicque #tildaswinton #baristabrian #deadline #tiff

She goes on to ask how it’s created, to which Ryan responds: “It’s just the foam.” Tilda is accordingly gagged by the answer, which only makes the video better.

Tilda Swinton, who is an Oscar winning actress and is best known for films such as Doctor Strange, The Beach and We Need to Talk About Kevin, has a sip of the latte before declaring: “And it’s delicious! How is that possible?”

“That’s a unique skill, I don’t know anybody else who can do that.”

Brian captioned the TikTok: “She was so gracious and loved the latté art, Iconicque.”

Users commented underneath, saying Swinton “feels like a supportive aunt gushing over a niece or nephews art project and I love that”.

Another added: “I love celebrities lmaooo all running to grab their phones like moms at a birthday party.”

And a third said: “If Tilda Swinton was giving me this much praise I would simply ✨Pass Away✨.”

Director Joanna Hogg has also heaped praise onto the artist, saying that she remembered him from a latte art that he had made her at the Sundance Film Festival in 2019.

The video has been reposted to Twitter, where fans have also reacted accordingly.

A fan also hilariously described Tilda Swinton’s interaction with the latte as: “Eldritch god enjoying the delights of humanity’s simple pleasures.”

As Brian wrote – iconicque.
