Celebrities! They’re just like us! For example, super sexy English actor Tom Hardy aka Patron Saint of Pillowy Lips once had a MySpace that contained a bunch of sexy pics and one rambling and incredibly earnest “About Me” section.
It seems as though last year, when Tom Hardy wasn’t busy kicking ass in the box office, the hunky actor had to take a little time out of his busy schedule to tidy up those potentially embarrassing online profiles. The obsessives over at TomHardyParty.com first put up this copy of Hardy’s old MySpace profile in early December, but it languished in obscurity until a couple of days ago when Socialite Life posted some of Tom’s pics on their website. From the looks of things Tom must have taken down his profile some time in late 2009 or the first half of 2010, likely when he was just starting to garner a measure of celebrity from his starring turn in the English film “Bronson” and last summer’s Christopher Nolan blockbuster “Inception.” The photos include some self-portraits taken in full “Bronson” costume—handlebar mustache and all—and document his physical transformation into the beefy, ultra-violent criminal he plays in the film.
Excepting the fact that this profile documents the life of a talented actor on the verge of major stardom, the profile is very standard classic Myspace fare and offers many insights into the actor’s mind though not many surprises. For example, Hardy is pretty goddamn vain, though deservedly so. We, too, would have dozens of shirtless self-portraits adorning our various online profiles if we had that face and that incredible body he had to build for “Bronson.” His “About Me” section is just as earnest and melodramatic as anything you would find on a teenager’s Myspace in 2005, which is funny since according to the profile he was around 30 when it was written.
i am often afraid. So I have to share.I want to help, it’s not my business to judge, I make mistakes, I stand corrected, I accept casualties and walk with hope because I fucking LOVE. I could so easily be dead.
See? And we so want to make fun of him for getting all sentimental on his MySpace page but, you know, it’s Tom fucking Hardy. Sure, he’s going a little too hard for the heartfelt on a social networking site that was primarily the domain of bad high school bands and wannabe video hos, but the man was a serious drug addict, so his sentiment rings pretty true. Also, Tom Hardy could print a collection of puppy-inspired inspirational haikus and we’d buy it and jerk off to it.
