Tom Hardy may be a bankable Hollywood star these days, but one of his biggest roles is off-screen: as a father to his 4-year-old son, Louis.
“I like to go no longer than three weeks without seeing my loved ones, but it does take some juggling,” Hardy, 34, tells Company Magazine’s August issue of being a working dad who often has to film far from home.
“I’m very much aware of being a ‘Skype father,’ which is sad,” he says. “But I have to have the finances to make sure [my son will] be secure, and I can only do that by working.”
