Favorite actor series | Tom Hardy: [On his approach to acting] “I see myself as a piece of meat, and it’s purely subjective. For me, I know that’s the best I can do. I’m a bit of a micromanager,” he admitted. “In the early days, directors and producers would get nervous about me being in the video village. But to me it really is a tool, just a fucking tool. I need to make sure that my tone is working, that’s not about vanity, it’s about is it working? I’m not saving lives, mate, but a surgeon would look at footage and the video of other people doing surgery, or a formula one racer would watch a lap where someone took a corner, or a boxer would watch another boxer fight, I’d watch a screen and say, ‘OK, that’s bullshit, we’ve got to work on that.” - Tom Hardy

Inception 30 Day Challenge

Day 30: A letter to Christopher Nolan.


Dear Mr Nolan,
I’d like to say “thank you”.
So, thank you for your films. I love them not only because they are brilliant, but also because they were a beginning of an amazing adventure. 

Because of your films I could meet the most creative people in the whole word. Now I have a lot of new friends. And you know, friendship is very important.

 I could read the stories that make me smile, the stories that make me cry, the stories I re-read every time I’m sad and I need something to cheer me up.


Because of your films I could admire the beautiful fan arts. I could stare at them and just smile.


Because of your films I could listen to the podfics recorded by very talented people.


And it’s all because of you and your films. As you can see, I’ve got so much to thank you for.


So thank you, Mr N.
Thank you very much.
Always yours,
myk


PS. I ship your films with Hans Zimmer’s music.
PPS. Oh, could you please confirm that Arthur and Eames’ relationship is canon? I know it’s hard to believe but there still some people who think they are not together.

“You know when Hollywood does a great big blockbuster that really wraps you up in a world, and lets you believe in extraordinary things that move you in some way, in an almost operatic sensibility? That to me is the most fun I have at the movies.”

Happy birthday, Christopher Nolan!

‘Chris Nolan called me up and typically kind of humble and low key manner, he was like “Look, I’ve got this script. I’m not going to tell you anything about it. There’s a part that I think you’d be good for. Just have a read.” And I read it and it was a challenging read. I admit I did not grasp it in its entirety the first pass, so I read it again. Then we talked about it. I knew that I had never read anything like this before…’ — Cillian Murphy
