Tom Hiddleston is slowly starting to build an impressive resume for himself in Hollywood, but he admits that there's no one he looks up to more than Daniel Day-Lewis. The Thor 2 star recently won the Best Breakthrough at the South Bank Sky Art Awards, but he has maintained that he has a long way to go before he's in the league of actors like Day-Lewis.
While discussing his recently wrapped films, including Thor 2 and Only Lovers Left Alive, Hiddleston admitted that he's trying to find theater work next. He explains that he's sifting through scripts, saying, "I always try to stay true to a code about choosing work. I never want to just do a job for a job's sake, I want to do it because it is something I believe in."
One person who follows that work method more than anyone else in Hollywood: Daniel Day-Lewis. Day-Lewis doesn't work sometimes for years on end, but the work he does always lives up to his name. Hiddleston agrees, and adds, "He has always inspired me. The commitment he takes on every time he chooses to work, the kind of work he chooses - he has never ever been bad in my opinion and you can always see that he has given 110 per cent."
Hiddleston's 'Thor 2' will be released on November 8th of 2013 and 'Only Lovers Left Alive' towards the end of the year [it doesn't yet have a US distribution date].
