Tom Hardy Nearing End Of Career?: ‘What Draws You To This Craft? At this Age, I Don’t Know Anymore’

Over the past decade or so, actor Tom Hardy has weaved his way from more character-driven fare like Warrior and The Revenant to big-budget fare like The Dark Knight Rises and the upcoming Venom film. He’s headlined many big productions and has, therefore, become one of the most recognizable actors in the business.

Though he’s been around for nearly 20 years, it certainly seems like he’s still building up his career and setting himself up for that one big performance that he goes down in history for (though I can see many seeing that as Bane). But what about Hardy himself? Acting is known to be a pretty exhausting and all-encompassing profession. Does he see himself sticking around for much longer?

Speaking with Esquire, he gave an interesting answer when asked about the future of his career:

“You’ve summited Everest. It’s a miracle that you’ve made it anywhere near the fucking mountain, let alone climbed it. Do you want to go all the way back and do it again? Or do you want to get off the mountain and go fucking find a beach? What is it that draws you to the craft? At this age, I don’t know anymore. I’ve kind of had enough. If I’m being brutally honest, I want to go on with my life.”

So what are we to take from this? Should we expect that he’ll be winding down productions over the next few years, or are these just the words of a man who is constantly in search of a challenge and just can’t see far ahead enough to see what it may be?

What do you think of these comments from the thespian? Are you a bit worried that he may be nearing the end of his career? Let us know down below!
