"I'm just Tommy who does his thing. I guarantee you within a couple of years' time this will all blow over and I'll be back to being about as interesting as I am, which is not very interesting at all. I'm just doing a bit of acting now and then. It's like I came to deliver a pizza and I got really lucky."Tom Hardy. This guy.

In the same interview, he reveals that he once auditioned for Mr. Darcy in an adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, and was told by a studio executive: "Every woman has an idea of who Mr. Darcy is, and I'm afraid you're just not it."
