I would have had an unabashed crush on this actor. Now that I’m older, I don’t really get crushes on men I don’t know, since a performance or an ability or a skill doesn’t always translate into being a likeable or a good person, or even simply someone I’d like in real life.
But I do think he has an unusual talent, and I love watching him onscreen. I don’t know what makes an actor good, or have the ability to show depth and believability. But whatever those traits are, I think Tom Hardy has them. Frankly, I’m in awe.
