Observer Magazine: "The dream is to keep surprising yourself" (2011)

February 26, 2011: 

Tom Hiddleston was interviewed by Euan Ferguson for The Observer Magazine. 2011 was a breakout year for Tom with starring roles in Archipelago, Thor, Midnight in Paris, and War Horse.

My favorite passage from the interview: 

It would be a delight, or at least say something about balance and hubris, to be able to report that he's moodily curmudgeonly. Infuriatingly, he's charming, funny, passionate, eloquent and impossibly stylish, and the first to admit he has been a little blessed.

"Blessed, in part, with the differences in the scripts I've been able to take. It was a strange experience, finishing Archipelago, where we'd all moved into the actual house in the film, for seven weeks, to read and then live and improvise the story; then fly to LA for this $150m sci-fi epic. But that's what I love. I've always admired those actors who constantly surprise you. Ralph Fiennes, Anthony Hopkins, Daniel Day-Lewis. The dream is to keep surprising yourself, never mind the audience."

Accompanying the interview was a photoshoot by Richard Saker. 


Tom was wearing a Burberry trenchcoat with Armani Jeans leather pants, and Ariat roper boots.
