To play Elton John in the upcoming film “Rocketman,” Tom Hardy has been wearing the singer’s old clothes.
“When I play a real person, I like to have bits of them,” he said at a Cinema Society screening of his latest movie “Locke.”
“Since I can’t take physical body parts and sever those, I try and grab as much ‘kit’ off them as possible.”
He joked, “Then you can sell it on eBay.” (x)
Ha. I wonder if Elton John knows that Tom did have an actual part of Charles Bronson…
Charles Bronson: “A big event today: I chopped off the most infamous tash in the UK, if not Europe – maybe the world.
“Yeah, my moustache has gone and it’s going to end up going through Tom Hardy’s letter box.
"Maybe the make-up artists on set can stick it on his top lip. If not, Tom can stick it in his pocket for luck. Then at least part of me will be on the film set!” (x)
Tom sending a birthday greeting to a very lucky girl today… without the beard!
I’m assuming Tom will not work anymore in Peaky Blinders (?). No way that beard it’s going to grow fast enough for the next episode!
Abigail Young “This has really made my birthday having this off tom hardy I love him”
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.
“How was your day?”
“Text me when you get home so I know you’re safe”
“How are you?”
“I hope you’re feeling better”
“Have a good day today!”
“I miss you”
“Can you come over?”
“Can I come over?”
“Can I see you?”
“Can I call you?”
“Want something to drink?”
“Watch your step”
“Let’s watch a movie”
“What are you up to?”
“How is your day so far?”
“It will be okay”
“I’m here for you”
“Do you need anything?”
“Are you hungry?”
“I just wanted to hear your voice”
“You just made my day”
You don’t have to hear “I Love You” to know that someone does. Listen carefully. People speak from the heart more often than you think.
If you’re in the UK, Picture House Cinemas are offering a chance to meet Steven Knight at a private screening of Locke! All you have to do is tell a good 85-second story on film. I wonder if the story can involve Tom Hardy… xxx :)
LOCKE 85-Second Challenge
LOCKE opens on 18 April, and to celebrate we’ve teamed up with Lionsgate UK to offer you an exclusive chance to meet Oscar-nominated writer and director Steven Knight, at a private screening of his new film LOCKE starring Tom Hardy.
To enter this competition you need to submit an original 85-second film made by you, consisting of a single scene featuring a single character delivering a monologue onscreen. It can be about anything, but must have a narrative. For example, in LOCKE, Tom Hardy’s character recieves a phone call that sets in motion a series of events that will unravel his family, job and soul. Additional characters can be included as voices off-screen.
Judges will be looking for original films that tell a complete story within the running time.
Watch the trailer for inspiration.
Royal Marine Massed Band at The Albert Hall
RM John and I popped into make the lads a brew. And ended up in a balcony box. No ropes today.
Chuck D should do something with them
The band are formed from all sorts. / Guild Hall to the R Academy Music
Why is it so under the radar?
Assets from Cirque D Soleil; Ronnie Scotts and the Royal Ballet or EnO with the NT might consider collaboratively joining forces to do a piece ? Like “Stomp meets Alice in Wonderland and Apocalypse now meets Downton plus Caroline or change” but really mental - i reckon that would be a logical and viable troupe of artistic integrity with some thing incredibly special on their hands personally.
And i wouldn’t rule out the RM drummers with Public enemy being a killer collab
Raise some roofs and hats and hands
I’d pay mucho dineros to see those collaborations!
