What started off as a typical cover story interview for a major magazine quickly became an adventure for Esquire senior editor Eric Sullivan when he went on a motorcycle tour with actor Tom Hardy.
In a short thread, Esquire gave us a look into the interview.
Hollywood’s favorite badass is known for keeping reporters at arm’s length to protect his private life. But when he randomly found an old friend’s mother bleeding on the side of the street during this interview, the day spun way off-script. https://t.co/NxJmnEEfeC pic.twitter.com/Ono2dtiWYD— Esquire (@esquire) August 7, 2018
He's at the top of his game, but Tom Hardy is taking a hard look at his future in acting.— Esquire (@esquire) August 7, 2018
"What is it that draws you to the craft? At this age, I don’t know anymore. I’ve kind of had enough. If I’m brutally honest, I want to go on with my life.” https://t.co/NxJmnEEfeC pic.twitter.com/QJZVPUVoyJ
The interview read like an adventure story.
Hardy's fans couldn't get enough
Great job 👏🏽👏🏽 Nice to know he’s everything we want him to be ☺️— Jessica Knapik (@JessicaKnapik) August 7, 2018
We hope to see more of Hardy in the coming years, and we hope his mother's friend is recovering nicely.
