Happy month of March, everyone!

I still can't get enough of him. Swear. As in. Super.

To whoever is the management of Tom Hardy...uhmmmm....may you please tell him that I love him?

Hardy appeared in the 2005 BBC miniseries The Virgin Queen as Robert Dudley, a childhood friend of Elizabeth I. The miniseries portrays them as having a platonic, though highly romantic, affair throughout her reign over England during the 16th century. Hardy featured in the Richard Fell adaptation of the 1960s sci-fi series A for Andromeda, on BBC Four.

In 2007, he appeared in the BBC Two drama based on a true story – Stuart: A Life Backwards.

In August 2009, he appeared in Wuthering Heights, playing the part of Heathcliff, the classic love character who falls in love with his childhood friend Cathy (played by Charlotte Riley), "the love that destroyed everything it touched". It was even suggested by tabloid paper The Sun that he began a relationship with Charlotte Riley shortly after finishing work on The Take, and that he left his partner of two years and mother of his infant son to be with Riley. Riley has disputed this rumour in interviews.

In early 2010, Hardy starred in The Long Red Road at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago. The play was written by Brett C. Leonard and directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman. Hardy won some good reviews for his portrayal of Sam, an alcoholic trying to drink away his past.

In 2010, he starred as Eames in Christopher Nolan's science fiction thriller Inception for which he won a BAFTA Rising Star award.

In June 2010, Hardy announced on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross that he will play the title role in a new version of Mad Max.

Personal life

Hardy married Sarah Ward in 1999; they divorced in 2004. He has a son, Louis Thomas Hardy (born 8 April 2008), with ex-girlfriend Rachael Speed. In an interview with Now magazine, when asked if he has ever slept with men or if he was bisexual, Hardy said that he has "played with everything and everyone" but now that he is in his thirties, he is done experimenting. In July 2010, Hardy proposed to actress Charlotte Riley, after a year of dating.

Hardy battled alcoholism and a crack cocaine addiction in his early-to mid-twenties. He entered a rehab clinic and has been sober and clean since 2003.
