Tom Hardy: “If you think I’m tough, you should see my fiancée!”
He was Batman’s masked nemesis in The Dark Knight Rises, a savage cage fighter in Warrior, and now he’s a dark and brooding barman turned gangster in The Drop. In real life though, Tom insists he’s nothing but a big softie.
“Ha! Me? Tough? No! My fiancée Charlotte has, pound for pound, a better punch than I do!” Every one reminds me of something in my life. An event, a person, a place...”
“Ha! I tried! But I do love trying to transform. I think it’s always good to keep shifting. It’s the same physicality as me, of course, so it’s fun to take on a different guise and to use that camouflage.”
“I’d love to. I love working with Chris. I’ll do anything with him. It was such an honour to be asked to be in those films. Even now, if I stop and think about it, it’s almost overwhelming.”
“My son lives in London with his mother and I need that contact with him. It’s so important to me. Any time away from him is just criminal. Also, I am a Londoner forever. I’m never moving until my boy is old enough to move with me if he wants to.”
Tom’s that perfect combination of a tough guy with a marshmallow heart Tom and his fiancée Charlotte
