Tom Hardy in Locke
What makes Hardy’s performance so effective is that he doesn’t play Locke as a quick-fix dynamo, nor as some paragon of male nobility, rushing gallantly to the side of a helpless woman. He’s simply an ordinary, even-tempered and decent man in a tough situation, whose moral compass dictates a dutiful sense of follow-through in both private and professional matters. Watching the performance in such unblinking focus is a reminder of how infrequently those qualities define a contemporary screen character.
Hardy seldom raises his voice, and even as cracks form in his composure and the ramifications become clear, flare-ups are kept to a minimum. His line readings are consistently interesting, conveying a lot with little outward display of emotion. But the shattering toll of Locke’s actions is written all over his face as he accepts his fate. It’s an extraordinary piece of acting. (x)
Actually, I’m a big softie and that’s why I’m covered in tattoos, everything is because I’m actually quite scared of everything. The point is that I’m naturally a quite fearful person, okay? … That’s what I trade on anyway, so I don’t go around all the time getting angry. It’s because I’m a sweetheart. I want everyone to love me.Forjennhoney
now my babies, let’s look at Tom Hardy, as a tumblr family
Tom running through the streets of London in what is - according to what I can see from The Sun - a photoshoot (or a film? I can’t be sure).
Ha ha! This is amazing! I’m dying to know more!

It’s Good Mustache Thursday. I’ll handle the mustaches, you handle something else, and we might just get the hang of Thursday!
