Tom Hardy, an accidental superhero, has once again come to the aid of a member of the public in London. Last year, the actor famously made a citizen’s arrest after chasing and detaining a moped thief. More recently, he found himself pausing an interview after finding a woman bleeding on the street. Tom was giving an Esquire writer a tour of the area of South West London where he grew up, when they came across the woman, who’d tripped while walking her dog. “I know her,” the actor realized, as he went to the aid of what turned out to be the mother of one of his childhood friends. After seeing her into an ambulance and consoling his friend (who quickly arrived at the scene), Tom joked to the interviewer, “Welcome to my neighborhood. I told you there’s always something to find behind the Laura Ashley curtains.”
Tom is notoriously private about his life (we still don’t know the name or gender of his child with wife Charlotte Riley), but we can add this to the list of sweet (and funny) moments we’ve been treated to over the years. We’re addicted to his Instagram and his unique use of hashtags, we have listened to his 1999 rap mixtape on repeat, and we couldn’t help but swoon over that unforgettable bedtime story. This guy really is the gift that keeps on giving.
