  • Bane voice: Ah, you think darkness is your ally. But you merely adopted the dark, I was

  • born in it… (coughing and spluttering)

  • Tom Hardy: Sorry it’s hard for me to break character. That’s not strictly true, I was

  • born just outside of London on September 15th 1977. It might have been dark, I don’t remember.

  • Bane: But no one cared who I was until I put on the mask.

  • Tom Hardy: Sorry! I can’t stop myself. Hi, I’m Tom Hardy, thanks for inviting me to

  • draw my life.

  • I grew up in London, the only child of an artist and a comedy writer my real name is

  • Edward but I go by my middle name Tom. Edward doesn’t exactly scream leading man, sorry

  • Ed Norton. It’s not been your typical road to Hollywood stardom. Modelling, crime, rehab

  • well maybe it’s not that unique a story in tinseltown but I did all that before I

  • arrived in la la land. I was something of a troubled teen, alcohol abuse etcetera, almost

  • sent to prison for stealing a car etcetera, possession of a gun etcetera etcetera. I don’t

  • like to talk about it, It’s the only cliche role I’ve ever played and I promised myself

  • I’d never do that again, well except to do the rom-com This Means War, what can I

  • say they made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.

  • I got my break into showbiz when I was 21 and I won a modelling competition on the British

  • TV show, the Big Breakfast, but they had forgotten me by lunch time. So I attended drama school

  • in London, but I dropped out to take a small role in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers.

  • That gamble paid off! Steven Spielberg’s World War Two drama launched my career, and

  • the careers of loads of other british actors too. Me, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy

  • and some bloke called Ross from Friends. From there I landed my film debut in Ridley Scott’s

  • Black Hawk Down and played the baddie in a Star Trek movie. But in 2003 I cracked, and

  • hit rock bottom after I hit the bottom of my crack rocks. My addictions got the better

  • of me, and my first marriage. I checked into rehab and I’ve been clean and sober ever

  • since. Now I’m only addicted to dubsmash.

  • I made my comeback acting on stage and the small screen but it was my performance in

  • the independent movie Bronson which brought me back to the attention of the big Hollywood

  • studios. Next thing I knew I was stealing scenes within scenes from Leo in Inception,

  • acting alongside my hero Gary Oldman in the spy thriller Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and

  • breaking hearts and snapping necks in the emotional MMA drama Warrior. I played Heathcliff

  • in the TV adaptation of Wuthering Heights and I fell in love on the misty moors for

  • real. I married my Cathy - Charlotte Riley in 2014. But people are always speculating

  • about my sexual ambiguity, why? Anyway, it’s like I always say you don’t know what's

  • going to float your boat until you send it out to sea. Recently I’ve been sent into

  • the movie stratosphere with my roles in the Dark Knight Rises and Mad Max, and you can

  • get double your Hardy on with my latest film Legend, a bio-pic where I play both the Kray

  • Twins. That was my Draw My Life thanks for watching, don’t forget to subscribe and
