How to hug a puppy, by Tom Hardy.
Look, working with animals isn’t easy. They don’t listen to stage directions, and they’re always sniffing you pockets, and then, as the old adage reminds us, they always upstage you. Only a brave and patient actor would sign up for dog duty, but luckily, Tom Hardy is such a man. And if these photos from the set ofAnimal Rescue are any indication, he has already overcome major species barriers to form a bond with his canine co-star. It’s hard work, but someone has to hug puppies. Let Tom Hardy teach you how.

Whatever character you play, remember they are always doing something. They are not just talking. They are alive; going through a drama in which they will go through some sort of dramatic human experience. Keywords: Alive and Experience. It is your job to make them become so. Anything you do on stage or film has a direct relation to something you have experienced in one form or another in real life. Use your imagination to exaggerate or lessen that sensation. Then, disguise it in characterization and don`t forget to make lots and lots of mistakes, and look like a complete asshole. You`ll do fine. - T.H
“A lot of people say I seem masculine, but I don’t feel it. I feel intrinsically feminine. I’d love to be one of the boys but I always felt a bit on the outside. Maybe my masculine qualities come from overcompensating because I’m not one of the boys.” Tom Hardy.
