Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.

For people who wonder if/if not Tom had his teeth fixed...

This was Tom in his first film The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby:

(Look at this little cutie.)

image

(So that you can see, that it’s no weird artefact or reflection.)Look at his adorable babyface!

I think he did grow out of his babyteeth a bit, but they weren’t as straight as they are now in Suburban Shootout.

image

During Othello his upper-teeth reflect the light very heavily and unnaturally, like they are covered in plastic (braces?).

image

(See, no artefact either. Watch the whole interview and see for yourself to make up your mind: x)

So his teeth haven’t always looked the way they do now. But does it really matter?

Oh go I don’t even know.

"The joy of parting is nothing to the joy of meeting again." - Charles Dickens, Nicholas Nickleby

“Close friends are truly life’s treasures. Sometimes they know us better than we know ourselves. With gentle honesty, they are there to guide and support us, to share our laughter and our tears. Their presence reminds us that we are never really alone.” ― Vincent van Gogh

So happy and blessed to have these girls in my life. It is only God who binds us! 💚💚
