In the harried race to be the most charming and lovable actor of his generation, Tom Hardy has just leaped ahead of Ryan Gosling, and took an insurmountable points lead over Chris Hemsworth by going out on a date of tea and scones with a single mother who has cancer, and then BUYING HER A DIAMOND NECKLACE.
Let’s swoon together, shall we:
Young mum Kayleigh Duff had a dream date with film star Tom Hardy during a break from her cancer treatment. … Meeting him was one of the items on a wish list she drew up after being diagnosed with the same rare and aggressive form of cancer that killed her father when she was just eight … Kayleigh, of Wye Green, Herne Bay, said: “I nearly died when I saw him. I was shaking - I just thought we were having a day out in London.
“Tom’s fiancee Charlotte and Katie arranged it all without me knowing and he was so lovely and down to earth.
“We had lunch and tea and scones and he bought me a diamond necklace.”
That street fight that Ryan Gosling broke up doesn’t sound so impressive anymore, does it?
