Tom Hardy has shared that his teenage son often critiques his acting performances.

Speaking recently with E! Online, the actor spoke about his 16-year-old son Louis, who takes an active interest in Hardy’s work, even offering constructive criticism about his acting.

However, Hardy shared that Louis doesn’t explicitly admit whether he likes a film or not: “I mean, he wouldn’t ever tell me,” the Venom actor shared.

“He’s 16, you know what I mean? He told me what I’m getting right or wrong.”

Hardy did share that the advice is given in a constructive and helpful way, adding: “That doesn’t mean he doesn’t back me or support me or look out for me, and offer information that’s useful in order to be better with what I do.”

He continued to describe how Louis goes about critiquing his work, saying: “It comes from a position of like, ‘Look, you know this.’”

“He deconstructs what I’m doing like a peer would,” the Mad Max: Fury Road star added.

In other news, Hardy will lead the cast of the upcoming film The Bikeriders, out in UK cinemas from June 21.

Starring ElvisAustin Butler, Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer and Challengers’ Mike Faist among others, the film follows a rebellious fictional Midwest motorcycle club in the ’60s and ’80s.

In a four-star review of the film, NME wrote: “Eschewing melodrama for a more low-key register, it may not satisfy those looking for quick thrills. But this slow-burner is a stylish look at a bygone era, when all that mattered was having enough money to put petrol in your tank.”

Elsewhere, following the release of Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, the franchise’s director George Miller has revealed details of the on-set feud between Hardy and Charlize Theron while filming Fury Road.

He said: “I’m an optimist, so I saw their behaviour as mirroring their characters, where they had to learn to co-operate in order to ensure mutual survival. There’s no excuse for it, and I think there’s a tendency in this business to use great performances as an excuse for other disruption that could be avoided.”
