Tom Hardy is driven by addiction fear

Jan 2 2014, 3:24am CST | by

Tom Hardy is "driven by fear" that he could slip back into addiction and destroy his career.

The 'Inception' star has been clean for 10 years after checking himself into rehab in 2003 to deal with his alcoholism and crack cocaine use.

The actor told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "If I had four pints of lager and half a bottle of vodka I could turn this room into an absolute f***ing nightmare in about three minutes. I could destroy everything in my life I have worked so hard for.

"If I stop working they might take it away from me. People will say, 'Tommy you're doing well,' and I say, 'Am I?' In my head I'm still the kid. Does that make sense?"

He continued: "I love what I do, but it's driven by a fear of not being able to do it. It's the same with drinking - if I stop then who am I? What have I got? I have to watch that drive.

"It doesn't matter how well I am doing, I'm only that far away from f***ing it all up."

Tom, 36, who has a five-year-old son, Louis, with ex-girlfriend Rachael Speed and is now engaged to 32-year-old actress Charlotte Riley.

Tom - whose marriage to ex-wife Sarah Ward broke down in 2004 - admits he had to lose something he cared deeply about in his life to realize he did have a problem with alcohol and needed to quit drinking.

Tom said: "I did something particularly heinous that allowed me to wake up.

"I had to lose something. Sometimes you have to lose something that is worth more to you than your drinking."

Tom Hardy: ‘I’m a pr-ck…I’m not a great reader or watcher of films’

Nov 4 2014 6:10am CST | Source: Celebitchy.com

We’ve been covering a lot of Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch lately, and I think we’re due for some good old fashioned blokin’. Just FYI: I don’t control the promotional gossip cycle! If I’m not covering one of our favorite men, that’s probably because there are no new photos of interviews. Luckily, Tom Hardy’s The Drop doesn’t come out in the UK until mid-November, so he’s still doing some promotional work ...

Tom Hardy Might Be Apocalypse, Or Whatever The Hell ‘Suicide Squad’ Is

Oct 20 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: The Superficial

[Ed. Note: One of my new favorite things is to make Photo Boy write about any of the 8,000 comic book movies set to come out in the next three years because like most of the general movie-going public, he has no fucking clue who half of these characters are, so it's fun to see the reaction of someone who doesn't have every single of them in action figure form somewhere in his basement. Also, Monday's his busiest day putting together The Crap We Missed ...
