Could Tom Hardy Be The Latest Actor To Leave Hollywood Behind? The forty-three-year-old actor recently said he sees “less reason to work” while raising his children.
In a new interview, the actor hinted at a possible early retirement. Hardy is currently doing publicity for his upcoming movie Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
Tom Hardy has suggested that at some point fans will “never see me again”. The actor has said that raising his children is more important than appearing in movies he doesn’t really bond with. Hardy has a thirteen-year-old son with his ex-girlfriend Rachael Speed, as well as a five-year-old daughter and a two-year-old son with his wife Charlotte Riley.
“I think in the end there’s less reason to work because the life drive is to be with the kids and be fit and healthy and eat right and all that,” Hardy said.
Hardy has said that while he avoided the concept of “growing up,” he’s come to realize that it’s more important to be with his family and be true to oneself. While Hardy says publicly that he could just walk away from his career, it doesn’t seem likely he will any time soon.
What’s next for Hardy?
While the actor may be rethinking his priorities, that doesn’t mean his career will end overnight. It is said that Hardy is planning to make a third venom movie. If the final entry proves successful, we’ll be able to take on Hardy against Tom Holland’s Spider-Man.
The actor earned his first story credit for Let there be a bloodbath so maybe he will stay in the movie business as a writer. Hardy’s father, Chips, is a novelist, playwright and screenwriter, so maybe Tom will follow in his father’s footsteps.
If Hardy leaves Hollywood, it won’t happen anytime soon. He’s ready to shine havoc, an action thriller by The robbery director Gareth Evans. The Netflix film will also star Forest Whitaker, Timothy Olyphant, Justin Cornwell and Jessie Mei Li. Hardy is also set to star in war party, a Navy SEAL action film directed by Ridley Scott.
It has long been rumored that Hardy will reprise his role from Mad Max: Fury Road. The film, tentatively titled the wasteland, a film that has been stuck in developmental prison for years. A lawsuit between director George Miller’s production company and Warner Bros. definitely brought production to a halt. A spin-off film about Charlize Theron’s character from Fury Road seems to be next for Miller.
Hardy is also attached to the Vietnam war film The things they wore. Tim O’Brien’s story collection adaptation also includes Tye Sheridan, Bill Skarsgard, Pete Davidson, Stephan James, Ashton Sanders, Moises Arias, and Angus Cloud.
