The Dark Knight Rises actor Tom Hardy has been talking about his character in his latest movie Lawless and admitted that there is quite a contradictive personality with him. Tom plays the bootlegger Forrest Bondurant and claims that it was not the easiest character to get to grips with.
Hardy explained to Flicks and Bits, "I take characters as they come, characters that interest me, that have scope. And also, a diversity of different ranges and colours and characteristics that are interesting in finding paradoxes and dichotomies of man.”
He added, "[With Forrest, I was] like, 'How can somebody be so violent, yet at the same time be such a little boy?' Someone intrinsically innocent and naive and have such a heart, but then he'd do something on the other side that was so incredibly, horrifically horrible.
Tom continued, "And yet where the fulcrum is in the middle, someone that by the end of the film I want the audience to have the ability to care about that person." You can see Tom Hardy in Lawless, which also stars Shia LaBeouf, when it is released in the US on August 29 and in the UK on September 7.
