Tom Hardy Topics
When I did the physical preparations and the jiu jitsu, I learned to tame my body, to control it. When I was younger, I had no control over it and I wasnt comfortable in my own skin. Its like I was put into the body of a man without giving me any tools to make it work. I remember when I was a kid, my mom would never let me watch fight films. I didnt discover Rocky and Commando until I was 15 years old. In the rooms of all my friends, there were posters of Stallone. In mine, there was Mary Poppins!
I have a need to transform my body in order to get under the skin of my characters. For Warrior, they asked me to put on 13 kilos of muscle, a little less than for Bronson which was 20 kilos! And for Batman, itll be more. Every time its a challenge.
Whatever character you play, remember they are always doing something. They are not just talking. They are alive; going through a drama in which they will go through some sort of dramatic human experience. Keywords: Alive and Experience. It is your job to make them become so. Anthing you do on stage or film has a direct relation to something you have experienced in one form or another in real life. Use your imagination to exaggerate or lessen that sensation. Then, disguise it in characterization and don't forget to make lots and lots of mistakes, and look like a complete asshole. You`ll do fine.
If people are really nice and happy all the time, you wanna look out for the darkness in them. But the ones that are all dark all the time, you want to put a lightness in the middle of them, cause theyre probably pretty nice people.
And I like people. I like to know what you're really up to. I'm a bit of a nosey busy body. Why do they do the things they do? Why are they prepared to do the things they do to get what they want? When? Where? Who?
Ive always felt set apart and different from other guys. People have always seen me as being hyper masculine, manly, but thats not how I see itSometimes I feel intrinsicallyfeminine! Its very difficult being a man. Theres so much you need to learn, so many sacrifices, and punishment, but also to accept your feminine sides in order to grow.
My action figure is great! It's big and bald. It's very disturbing to look at a toy and see yourself. At the same time, it's very cool.
You don't step on stage to eat, you go there to be eaten.
I don't like quiet. I don't like having to sit with myself. But no matter where you go, there you are. I hate being on my own. The lights are always on, if you see what I mean. I'm learning to sit still but it's hard. Really hard.
Those whom the Gods wish to destroy, they first call Promising.
From a very young age I was flagrantly disobedient. I got involved in anything that was naughty. I wanted to explore all the dark corners of the world, partly to see if I could control it.
