Birth of son changed Hardy

LONDON: Hollywood actor-producer Tom Hardy, who struggled with alcohol and drug addiction in the past, says the birth of his son made him realise that he had to think about his family too rather than focusing on himself.

Hardy says the birth of his son Louis, now seven, whom he has with ex-girlfriend Rachael Speed, “changed his life”, reports

“After the birth of my son is when the penny dropped that there was no longer very much time for me to think about myself any more because there is somebody now on the planet who really needs me to get my act together and focus on something that is more important than me,” said the 38-year-old, who also has a three-month-old child with wife Charlotte Riley.
