Tom Hardy covers the September 2018 issue of British Esquire magazine photographed by Greg Williams and styled by Nicole Schneider.
On Playing 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,” says Hardy. “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.”
