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."

Dogs love Tom Hardy. It’s why he’s always seems to be surrounded by dogs. His own dog, Woodstock (or Woody), is always on set with him. When he’s on set, all kinds of little dogs show up for licks and pets. Look at that. They’re all over him and his dog mus ...

Leonardo DiCaprio looks rough at the Oceana summer party: would you hit it?

Aug 18 2014 8:40am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

This is what a summer full of partying does to your face, people. This is public service announcement from Leonardo DiCaprio. When you are in your teens and 20s, you can party through the whole summer and come out of it looking pretty much the same. But when you’re looking 40 in the face (he turns 40 in November), you can’t party your ass off the entire summer and expect to look anything other than haggard. Anyway, these are photos of Leo at the Oceana SeaChange ...

Tom Hardy poses in London with an Ewok-looking dog: the best thing ever?

Aug 17 2014 7:10am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

It’s nice to just take a moment for Tom Hardy and a dog. These photos are from Friday, where Tom was still filming Legend (the Kray Brothers bio-pic/gangster film) in London. I don’t think this Ewok-looking dog was part of the production, nor do I think Ewok belongs to Tom. I think Ewok was a fan’s dog, and when Tom went over to the crowd of fans, he picked up Ewok and posed for some photos. At first, Ewok wa ...
