I really like Tom Hardy.
I can’t often say that about celebrities, or people in general. They’re just too wrapped up in their own little world of self-indulgence and self-importance. Can’t be bothered to help out another soul, or they’ll do the bare minimum so they can sleep at night under a blanket of “I did a good thing today.”
You’ve got the rest of the World. Then you’ve got Tom Hardy.
YOUNG mum Kayleigh Duff had a dream date with film star Tom Hardy during a break from her cancer treatment.
The 23-year-old spent yesterday in London with the film star, who appeared in Inception and The Dark Knight Rises, as part of a surprise organised by her friend Katie Birch.
Meeting him was one of the items on a wish list she drew up after being diagnosed with the same rare and aggressive form of cancer that killed her father when she was just eight.
Another wish was to get married, and Katie organised a wedding photoshoot with model Danny Wisker, which attracted national media attention.She appeared on ITV’s This Morning after the ‘wedding’ and Tom Hardy’s fiancee’s sister saw the item and contacted the show.
Kayleigh, of Wye Green, Herne Bay, said: “I nearly died when I saw him. I was shaking – I just thought we were having a day out in London.
“Tom’s fiancee Charlotte and Katie arranged it all without me knowing and he was so lovely and down to earth.
“We had lunch and tea and scones and he bought me a diamond necklace.”
The day out came during a break from Kayleigh’s treatment for the same rare and aggressive cancer that killed her father when she was just eight.
Her first course of chemotherapy made no difference to the tumours in her liver and she is due to start a different combination of chemo drugs in a few weeks.
But first she is jetting off to Florida for the holiday of a lifetime with son Kai – another item from her wish list, designed to make memories for Kai, two, and the rest of her family.
