We know Tom Hardy. We love Tom Hardy. He's a good boy who loves his good boys.
But what we don't do is talk about his old MySpace page and how much of a trip that was. So now, I present to you Tom Hardy's greatest MySpace pictures, interspersed with VERY REAL lines from his bio.
"If you suck you suck..If you're good I take my hat off and I'm all over you. I'll bend over backwards to help anyone of their word."
"your best like my best just isn't good enough. ever, no scarface syndrome here, no resting on laurels, there is always work to do, I'll clean up my side of the street promptly admitting where I am wrong, the work doesn't stop. "
"I'm Grateful, arrogant self centred, tenacious, versatile, honest, honourable, loyal, loving, gentle, consistent, reliable, focussed [sic], prideful, passionate and nuts. I have a head like a disco ball."
"there is always another way forward better even if it is around the side or back, I try to find it. the mind is like a parachute it will only work when it is opened."
"it's not my business to judge, I make mistakes, I stand corrected, I accept casualties and walk with hope because I fucking LOVE. I could so easily be dead."
"My head is like a dangerous neighbourhood I should never be in it without an appropriate adult. left to my own devices I'll crash the motor. "
"I laugh at bullies. I am reactionary but I have learned to hold my tongue and my trigger finger."
"I always wanted to be someone else, it isn't rocket science it's easy, now that I've made amends for lying to myself, it is a trade craft nothing more"
"what a load of self satisfied smug and charmless tatter x"
But if you thought Tom Hardy would be embarrassed by these pictures, think again.
"In my tighty-whitey budgie smugglers," he said years later. "In America, they say 'you should be ashamed of this' but I'm actually not remotely ashamed "“ that is me in my natural habitat, thank you."
Lori Petty was on her road to stardom in the late 80s. By the early 90s almost everyone knew her name, and no one would have bet against the talented actress reigning over Hollywood. By the mid 90s however people were already starting to say "whatever happened..." and by the early 2000s people forget to say even that. Petty is a great actress, fearless, funny, - yes attractive, but her talent goes beyond that -
