Tom Hardy Talks Discipline & Being a Dad

Tom Hardy Talks Discipline & Being a Dad

Tom Hardy walks through the airport on Monday (May 21) in Nice, France.

The 34-year-old English actor was in town to promote and premiere his latest project, Lawless, during the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

“When I’m working, I have this discipline and I get meaning from it,” Tom recently told the Associated Press.

“It gives me purpose. And then I can turn to my little boy [4-year-old son Louis] and say, ‘Daddy does something. And I do it well. I may not be the best, but I’m the best that I can be. Now eat your f—— greens,’” he joked.

    He really is a very good actor and I like how he varies his choice of roles. Sometimes he’s lead, sometimes he’s background, sometimes it’s action, comedy or a classic. This guys is going to last in the industry and get better with time.

    I wonder how often he actually sees his son since he dumped the mother for another woman when he was just a baby.

    As far as I see from paparazzis’ and fans’ photos, he always hangs out with Louis whenever he’s in London. And we, the public/outsiders, don’t know for the fact what happened when Tom and Rachel Speed spilt but it seems amicable enough that Rachel lets her son to see his father every time he’s in town (considering that they never got married, I reckon Rachel gets the sole custody). And Rachel is now married to another man and is pregnant and seems to lead a happy life.
    Shouldn’t the outsiders leave this obnoxious subject and move on?

    From what I read when he’s not in LA working or at events, he seems to live in the UK. That tells me he wants to be near his son. Just because a parent leaves another doesnt mean they leave their kid.

    1. In the end, NONE of us know anything about what really happened between Charlotte and Tom, Tom and Jessica, etc, most likely nothing. And really we don’t know Tom or Jessica as people, we only know what they allow us to know about their personal lives.

    2. I agree in saying that Tom and Jessica seemed particularly all over each other this weekend. That part I don’t like but Tom is in a committed relationship with Charlotte; he talks about her all the time. He wouldn’t have brought her on this trip if he was trying to sneak around with Jessica.

    3. And as for Rachel, she obviously doesn’t hate Tom and their split wasn’t that bad because she allows him to see Louis when he is in the UK so it couldn’t have been that bad?

    4. I don’t know, I just don’t feel like anything is really happening between Jessica and Tom.

    You make some fair comments but I don’t think he set out to be all over Jessica he just did it anyway because he could. I was not impressed by that lack of respect for his partner. Also just because Rachael lets him see his son doesn’t mean she likes him as a person. My sister is friendly with her ex but it’s only for the sake of the child who she loves and knows he needs his father in his life. It doesn’t alter the fact that he sh!t on her or her opinion of him as a GD or “Great Daddy” who likes to be seen doing his bit but knows nothing of sleepless nights and the sacrifices she has to make daily …financially and emotionally…just saying.

    Hey Tom, you should spend more time with your son and stop taking Miss Cross-eyed to everywhere, especially in front of cameras! You don’t need this!
    Your kid is more important, he will grow up and may not remember you anymore, this is sad.
