Very Well-Deserved! Tom Hardy Received His CBE for His Services to Drama


Actor Tom Hardy had received his CBE (Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) having been honoured for his services to drama.


CBE was announced earlier this year but 41-year-old actor actually received the impressive honour yesterday from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace.

He gained the recognition for his many blockbusters such as Venom, Inception, Mad Max: Fury Road, Legend, The Dark Knight as well as a recent stint in Peaky Blinders.

While Hardy is at his career's peak at the moment, he's previously spoken about how he was not always in such good place - having revealed his battle with crack cocaine addiction up until his 20s.

After checking himself into rehab back in 2003, Hardy's fate turn around and he seems to be more and more powerful everyday. 💕💕💕

Hardy told Esquire how his past mental issuses helped him grow into a brilliant actor. That's precisely what he did for his lead role in Venom.

"To me it's exciting because it's a double act. The character has an ethical framework, the alien by virtue of coming from another planet doesn't have the same ethical framework, and they have to work out how to be together, so they click.'' Tom Hardy said. 

''He now has a beast who lives rent-free in him. It could be like somebody who's contracted a tropical disease and gone mad. It's like acting out mental illness in some aspects, of which I have a fair understanding, having had a certain amount of mental health problems of my own, which are relevant, being an addict. So, I might as well fucking use it."

Wish I could congratulate him in person, but anyways, congratulations to king of our hearts!

You deserve the best and you totally rock!!
