Hi, I'm Tom Hardy. You Haven't Forgotten About Me, Have You?

By Cindy Davis | Trade News | March 27, 2014 | Comments ()


Hey guys, I have’t heard from you in a while; thought I’d check in. I’m still out here, doing my thing—playing with babies and dogs…



Sometimes bunnies…


But that doesn’t mean I’m not busy with work, you know—“practicing my craft”—as they say. You heard about this movie I did; Locke? It’s written and directed by Steven Knight, who also wrote Eastern Promises, Redemption and Dirty Pretty Things. I’ve got stellar co-stars; Andrew Scott, Ruth Wilson, Olivia Colman, Tom Holland, Ben Daniels…well here, watch my new trailer:

There were a whole lot of words over it, but trust me, it’s good. I play a man with a great life—dream job, beautiful family, etc.—everything’s going my way, until I get a call on my mobile. Shit hits…well, you know. Speaking of Steven Knight, did you know he also created and writes the British gangster series Peaky Blinders? I only bring it up because I’ve joined. That’s right, I’ll be right there alonside Cillian Murphy, Sam Neill, Helen McCrory, Iddo Goldberg, and my own fine fiancé, Charlotte Riley (Edge of Tomorrow, Wuthering Heights).


Me, in hats. That usually works out well for me, I think.


There’s another film I did called The Drop, written by Dennis Lehane (Gone Baby Gone, Mystic River, Shutter Island) and directed by Michaël R. Roskam (Bullhead); I play an ex-con trying to go straight. After I rescue a pit bull I found in the trash, the dog’s owner—who just happens to be a mob boss—comes after me, and shit goes downhill from there. This one’s a little sad for me too; it co-stars James Gandolfini as my cousin, Marv. Here are a couple of photos just released:

You probably already know I’ve got Child 44,



Mad Max: Fury Road,



and Rocket Man on the way, right?


Rumor has it I might be playing both Kray brothers in an upcoming biopic directed by Brian Helgeland (42, L.A. Confidential), but I can’t confirm or deny that yet.

I guess that’s about it for what I’m up to. Well, there’s this…


That’s pretty much an ongoing project.



Cindy Davis, (Twitter) apologizes for her terrible impersonation.

  • Boothy K

    I had no idea a remake of The Krays was happening. I'm very keen on all of this. So great to see him be choosy with his projects.

  • Pinky McLadybits

    My husband knows I would climb over him to get to Tom Hardy. I want to have ALL of the Tom Hardy babies. ALL OF THEM.

  • Scooter

    Ok...I feel really guilty about posting the previous adorkable pictures of him. Someone who doesn't "know" him may get the wrong impression. So here is a picture of TOM HARDY IN A HOT TUB!

  • thebeardedlady

    The only stipulation I put on supporting my daughter's choice of becoming an actress was that she somehow finds a way to get me a few minutes alone with him. That's all I need to show him that his destiny doesn't lie with beautiful actresses, it lies between my legs.

  • Nancy

    This is so damn adorable I could never forget you Tom.

  • Ozioma

    Beefcake Sighting!
    Set lions to moist: Defcon 4!

  • Daniel Valentin

    I could never forget you, Tom Hardy, you're the star of one of my top 5 movies ever.

  • Tammy

    Welp, might be time to queue up good ol' Wuthering Heights again this weekend. Hardy was absolutely, 100% the Heathcliff we deserved.

    Brood at me, Tommy Boy; brood at me good and hard. xo

  • J4Sho

    He makes my lions want to roar.

  • Scooter

    These beauties have been making the rounds on Tumblr the past couple of days. He is totally adorkable! Thanks Pajiba for the T-Hard love...he is my favorite!

  • Eva

    Good lord is he one beautiful creature!!!

  • Classic

    Sigh. Sigh again. I am just so full of feels right now. Hi Tom!!!

  • logan

    Well if Hardy never becomes a THING it wont be because Pajiba didn't try.

  • Alice

    Tom, Tom, TOM! Ramalama ding dong! I love you!!!

  • zeke_the_pig

    From that second picture I thought Tom's latest affectation might be taking his cute dog for a walk down by the docks while brandishing a big pink dildo.

  • thebeardedlady

    Sorry, that's mine. He was just holding it for me.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    And that would be bad because...?

  • zeke_the_pig

    Oh it'd be the opposite of bad

  • Isn't that the movie plot just described earlier? Seems so.

  • Nadiney

    Dear squid Jesus and Godtopus in heaven, this is wonderful.

    I'm really excited for Child 44 and Mad Max. I reds the book of the former, only the first one so far, but it's a cracking good story.

    Mad max will be excellent because god damnit! it has to be.

    And someone made an entire movie about Tom Hardy and an puppy? That's almost enough to make me thank actual God.

  • Blake Shrapnel


  • Gary Oldman looks supremely un-impressed by Hardy's sneer/hairy eyeball combo.

  • My favorite Tom remains http://youtu.be/kdYlaD6e84w

  • stella

    Omg I think he's looking at me. That's totally fine. And no Tom, I didn't forget about you at all. You are my favorite Tom.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Hi, Tom.


    I haven't forgotten about you at. All.
