29 Inspirational Tom Hardy Quotes

1. “It doesn’t matter who you are. What matters is your plan.” – Tom Hardy

2. “Love is doing something you don’t want to do for someone you don’t particularly like at that moment.” – Tom Hardy

3. “I think it’s important that you always transform if you can. That’s what I was trained to do. You try and hide yourself as much as you can – that’s the key to longevity.” – Tom Hardy

4. “I didn’t understand how you could do something which is so much fun and be so miserable doing it.” – Tom Hardy

5. “Fame and stuff like that is all very cool, but at the end of the day, we’re all human beings. Although what I do is incredibly surreal and fun and amazing and I’m really grateful for it, I don’t believe my own press release, do you know what I mean?” – Tom Hardy

6. “Never give power to the big man.” – Tom Hardy

7. “A great man is largely forgotten by the public. He doesn’t stand on top of a mountain waving a flag saying, “Look at me – I’m a great man.” A great man often disappears into the ether. Hardly anyone notices that he was even there, apart from his family and close friends. He was reliable. He showed up. He was there. He was useful where he could be. He made mistakes. Tried to make better of those mistakes. Doesn’t mean you have to cure cancer or understand the theory of relativity. It’s not necessarily as rock-and-roll or as cool as you might think. Part of being a great man is accepting that. To dare to be average and normal is actually a pathway to becoming a great man. To have more humility. To accept responsibility more. To just get on with what’s in front of your face. And to leave no f**king indelible mark of your ever being here, apart from the fact that you were there for your family to the best of your ability. It’s not an easy task. I’ll probably f**k it up.” – Tom Hardy

8. “I’m just getting settled as a responsible man – but if you split the elephant into little mouthfuls it will be fine.” – Tom Hardy

9. “I’m not interested in walks in the parks. Anything difficult that people think I couldn’t play, I’m straight at it. If they say ‘Tom, don’t put your hand in the fire’, you know I’ll be coming out of it casually an hour later with third-degree burns and bandages up to my arms.” – Tom Hardy

10. “So, somewhere between that acceptance and doing my homework and being competitive and having ambition and loving my job and observing and reflecting my society, that’s where I find the purpose. Because a man needs purpose.” – Tom Hardy

11. “I guess is I had fifty million dollars I could spend more time at home…” – Tom Hardy

12. “There’s always a certain pride in getting the job done properly.” – Tom Hardy

13. “You musn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.” – Tom Hardy

14. “Responsibility has a cost, and there’s no such thing as perfection.” – Tom Hardy

15. “We’re all flawed human beings and we all have a cauldron of psychosis which we have to unravel as we grow older and find the way we fit in to live our lives as best as possible.” – Tom Hardy

16. “No matter how much you can prepare for it, there’s nothing worse than the anticipation. It’s always the killer of everything. The actuality of doing something is normally a lot easier than the waiting for it.” – Tom Hardy

17. “Spirituality seems to me to be for those who’ve been through hell.” – Tom Hardy

18. “I’m going to fail to hit the mark I’ve put up before me because it’s not possible to hit it. I want to be the best at what I do so I’ve got to get over myself already because that’s never going to happen. I ain’t ever going to be god.” – Tom Hardy

19. “Within the creative arts you can create things and destroy things. Passion creates and destroys.” – Tom Hardy

20. “We are survivors. We control the fear. And without the fear, we are all as good as dead.” – Tom Hardy

21. “I think I had only been working nine months when I got ‘Star Trek,’ and it was huge. It was very overwhelming. So that opened my eyes a bit at an early age, kind of how not be frightened when walking into a responsibility of something like that.” – Tom Hardy

22. “Vanity is normal in performers. Does it bother other people? All the time. But nine times out of ten, that says more about them than you.” – Tom Hardy

23. “I identify with having strong, powerful female influences in my life. Do you think that women are fairly represented in screenplays, film, TV, and theatre today? Or do you think there should be better parts for women than just girlfriend and wife or lover? Because I’m bored with that.” – Tom Hardy

24. “I wanted my dad to be proud of me, and I fell into acting because there wasn’t anything else I could do, and in it I found a discipline that I wanted to keep coming back to, that I love and I learn about every day.” – Tom Hardy

25. “I was ashamed of not having any relevance… not being comfortable in my own skin. Huge ego, very low self-esteem. A lot of anger and rage and fear. It would be, ‘I’m not going to feel frightened so I’ll strangle the biggest guy in the bar and then no one will f**k with me’. I’ll get tattoos and people will know I’m not afraid to hurt myself and they’ll be like warning signs.” – Tom Hardy

26. “When I was nine, I ran in a school race, and I suddenly realized I was in the lead. I looked at the finish line, and just freaked out, then ran to the side as if I’d hurt myself. It was everything to do with the fear of success.” – Tom Hardy

27. “I’m never lost in a character, ever. Everything is absolutely articulated and worked out and there’s no room for error. The only thing there is room for is inspiration in the moment because you’ve done your homework up to that point…” – Tom Hardy

28. “There’s no feeling of, ‘I’ve got to be the best in the world.’ I’m going to be the best I can. I tell myself, it’s only storytelling and it’s going to be OK and you love doing this. Pick any one of the reasons to do it and, for the next five minutes, enjoy that.” It’s one thing being on top, but knowing what to do while you’re there is something else. Do you milk it for everything it’s worth or try to be choosy in order to gain some longevity?” – Tom Hardy

29. “I have a very busy head. I have inside voices that I have learned to contain.” – Tom Hardy
