Tom Hardy Talks THE DARK KNIGHT RISES; Says He's Not Thinking Of Potential Oscar Nomination
The actor comments on how lucky he feels to be playing the villainous Bane in The Dark Knight Rises but reveals that he has far more grounded aspirations than winning any awards.
"Batman is such an amazing franchise that I honestly feel overwhelmingly privileged to be a part of it," the actor told The Mirror in a recent interview. "It’s such an amazing cast to work alongside, they are all so talented. I loved being able to play a baddie and, coming from East Sheen in South-West London, that doesn’t come easily to me. I actually had to work on not being very nice. I’m genuinely a nice guy."
The paper go on to say that the actor isn't currently thinking of any "Oscars glory" (Heath Ledger won several posthumous awards for his role as The Joker in The Dark Knight) as he has his sights set on far more down to Earth matters. "I’m not even thinking about how it’s going to blow up for me after Batman. I’m just going to enjoy it and I’m still going to be buying a pint of milk by myself at the corner shop." He added: "My aim is to get an allotment. But where I live they are very selective about who they give one to, so even when I get to Michael Caine levels of acting I may not be able to have one."
