Photo-album I made of our day at the celebration of 65 years Solex in the Netherlands.
Some photos from Cannes 2012 that I haven’t seen before. This event was loaded with good things. Not least among them that Tom Hardy was in full “Captain Haddock,” as he described his beardedness. That’s a charming bit of self-deprecating humor, but it would only be accurate if Capt’n Haddock were the manliest manly pirate man in the universe and everyone wanted to have his pirate babies. “Everyone” meaning girls and guys. Captain Haddock*, however — bless him — was not a pirate.

*Captain Archibald Haddock (French: Capitaine Haddock) is a fictional character in The Adventures of Tintin, the series of comic albums written and illustrated by Belgian artist Hergé. He is Tintin’s best friend, a seafaring Merchant Marine Captain.
Haddock is initially depicted as a weak and alcoholic character under the control of his treacherous first mate Allan, who keeps him drunk and runs his freighter. He regains his command and his dignity, even rising to president of the Society of Sober Sailors, but never gives up his love for rum and whisky, especially Loch Lomond. In the adventureSecret of the Unicorn, and then continuing in Red Rackham’s Treasure, he and Tintin travel to find a pirate’s treasure captured by his ancestor, Sir Francis Haddock. With newfound wealth and regaining his ancestral home Marlinspike Hall, Captain Haddock becomes a socialite; riding a horse, wearing a monocle, and sitting in a theatre box seat (inThe Seven Crystal Balls). He then evolves to become genuinely heroic, volunteering to sacrifice his life to save Tintin’s own in the pivotal Tintin in Tibet.
Throughout it all, the Captain’s coarse humanity and sarcasm act as a counterpoint to Tintin’s often implausible heroism. He is always quick with a dry comment whenever the boy reporter gets too idealistic. (x)
People ask the question… what’s a RocknRolla? And I tell ‘em - it’s not about drums, drugs, and hospital drips, oh no. There’s more there than that, my friend. We all like a bit of the good life - some the money, some the drugs, others the sex game, the glamour, or the fame. But a RocknRolla, oh, he’s different. Why? Because a real RocknRolla wants the fucking lot.
Pyroradio.com: It must have been mad with all these different characters, the names are mad!
Idris Elba: I wanna know why he got Handsome Bob! I got Mumbles. I really wanted to ask Guy what was that about, I was like, I hate to sound obvious but does Mumbles mumble? But he was like no actually I want him to speak well, we filled in the gaps though with the characters.
Tom Hardy: Guy has created a world, for me he creates a fish tank of characters who can bounce of each other, it’s very fantasized though, it’s very tongue in cheek. We didn’t take our self too seriously on set and realised it actually kind of worked it was good fun.
Idris Elba: The humour of the so called cockney and likely lad is very universal, everyone can relate to piss taking. That is in the English culture, we are actually very humorous, I love that about English culture.
two great tastes that taste great together ;o))
Tom Hardy with personal trainer Ricky Moore.
Me and Tom hardy after a hardcore chest and delt workout!!
I helped Tom with all aspects of his training , nutrition and supplementation for his role as Bane in the new Batman film!
What a top guy he is!!
And some words from Tom from Ricky’s website:
I was in the Leeds area for a few of days and when I was looking for an advanced personal trainer in the area I was recommended to Ricky Moore by a friend. I did a couple of workouts with Ricky and found him to be very knowledgeable on both exercise and nutrition and would highly recommend him to anyone who’s serious about getting in shape, I really enjoyed my sessions with Ricky and I wish I was in the area longer and could have done a few more!!
In the build-up to my role as Bane in the new Batman movie I needed to add some serious muscle to my frame to look like the imposing monster from the comics, so in that time I was in regular contact via phone and e-mail with Ricky to ask his advice on all aspects of training, nutrition and supplementation to get the most amount of muscle on my frame in the shortest time possible!
My true face? I am just me … I am also a father and a son. And I have friends, a girlfriend, we live in a beautiful house outside of London, a middle class area, I’ve attended good schools. Then I become an actor, then I had problems with alcohol and drugs, then I’ve been successful, and tomorrow who knows. I am me, in fact. This is my real face.
“I am just me…”
You got to be kidding, to a lot of fans you’re way more than just you, mister Tom Hardy. To me you are my way of life, the first one I see in the morning and the last one I see before I go to sleep…
Yesssss! A new Tom-rap and it’s awesome! I’m transcribing!
This is what I’ve come up so far, help wanted with the finesses!
I don’t need no step no see it over proof performance what is it with anoraks
move it to the backpacker throw me a fish
I make tracks like needles break wax like many pictures never take up regals
feed that fish it comes steady flows up the Mississippi sits me down the river Thames.
Walking up the big stinky, moves like I’m kinky
Gonna show so I can slip the family a pinky from the hard black
Watch Jeepers Creepers bless my speakers ever seen a semi-automatic in a sneaker
trip that wire, kick that, flip that bodybag high, said there’s room on fire
seen a lot of come, seen a lot of goes and a lot of things along the way around this fucking war
I respect for the dead, dad said I see you when a half don’t know winterchills yet the night is coming after
You hear Ethx and Foo, from the dirty dirty south yo dirty dirty south yo
You hear Ethx and Foo, from the dirty dirty south yo dirty dirty south
This chapter become for this London boy-actor cross no selector
made the better both the sector now I’m calling in the kudo’s
call me the collector shake that butt
Take him home and I’m fucking senseless
We’re a proper since we picked offensive
Boys open up your heart don’t be so fucking senseless
I make the pound like min sound chrisp like piffany alpine selective
run and get your weapons
lets get fucked yo let’s get fucked yo
piricly the city come to fine my ability
Must be there to put me in a category that literally forbids my agility
my versatility, my adaptability a hark into the game for me
so pretty tight like pinkyrings
dirty dirty south run things too zero zipfly
All the way like fire rabbit
Bad habits run an addict into nothing short of rockbottom
You can’t beat a good rockbottom
Put it in perspernum
Yes I caught a mad one, a hot one
Yes I’m angry and I’m rising, climbing, spitting like a highman
Spitting out line shack move shack like shinig with pining lyrics
laying in the trunk roll ‘m up worth you mother
mother MC’s like a lover
One with the biggest bad dog you’ve ever seen
The bastard holds a dog uphaled like you know what I mean
Standing on a stage a whole back four horseman of apocalypse
For the trap and open let it run across the ….
Gets so hot in here
Fuck the whole world
One two one two
Ethx an Foo doing what you gotta do
and you love it, yes you love it
