Tom Hardy: Cathartic Roles

Tom revealed that his own experiences with alcoholism caused his roles in Stuart and Warrior to be quite cathartic for him: "I felt very much at home with the sadder side of Tommy, but it's not a territory I need to dwell in. I don't need to discuss or work around the abuse that surrounds alcoholism and dysfunction in families who suffer from that disease because it's something I can draw on from personal experience. It was actually quite cathartic, and I felt a responsibility to those who understand that world and those who don't and to open a window on it."
