"So I ain’t shaving my beard for you."

We asked Hardy to shave his beard first, so that he would be recognizable. And here’s what he said:
"Don’t get me wrong, there is part of me that wants to win an Oscar and wants to be on the front cover of a magazine and all that kind of stuff, but there’s also a part of me that really doesn’t. I’m not the guy you need—I’m not a role model. Don’t look too deep, because after you scratch the surface you are going to find out that I’m normal and I’ve got skeletons in my closet.
"But my intentions are good, and if you want to talk to me about the work, or if you want to work with me on something, then I hope you find that I’m a reliable team player. But you have to be as open and honest about it as I am, because you will be fucking judged, as I’ve been. But let’s have some fun! Some people will hate you, some people will like you, but then most people are completely indifferent about the fuck of my ideas and why the fuck he’s even being talked to. Who the fuck is this guy with the crooked teeth and the beard? He’s fucking ugly. Nobody buys a magazine with a beard on the front.
"So I ain’t shaving my beard for you. To shave my beard off would be to cut my fucking nuts off. You know what I mean? And give them to you to sell—to prove that I am a man. But without them, I am no longer. You sold them! And I am now a lie. Why would I do that? Oh, I’m a serious actor. Yes, I am. I cut my beard off, how do I look?”
meanwhile I’m sitting here going “I wonder if I can replace JGL with kitten, bb, precious, <3….. [30 tags later] AND JGL”
can someone verify that this works??
Yes, it works.
i went all swoony just now when i saw this on my dash, as if this weren’t the 80 millionth time i’ve liked/reblogged/smiled over this gifset or one exactly like it
EAMES’ FACE IN THAT LAST GIF, YOU GUYS. LOOK AT IT. IT’S HIS ‘MUST IMPRESS ARTHUR’ FACE. GUYS. *flails, can’t cope ever*
Thank you! :3 Motivation is something I’ve been very short on lately, so every little bit helps. But yeah, I can’t promise when an update will happen. :C I’ve actually been working on a new fic (Arthur/Eames), which is really exciting, because I’m already at like 4000 words with more coming!! It’s kind of a self-indulgent fic but I’m writing!! which is really big!!!
And of course someone JUST wrote an A/E fic with a similar idea. *head in hands* XD But yeah. Will be posting the first part to AO3 soon. I hope you guys like it and that it in some small way makes up for my gross lack of writing lately.
Whiskyrunner’s new A/E fic! I can’t wait!
And I’m wondering what you’re dreaming
Wondering if it’s me you’re seeing
Inception → How To Seduce A Straight Guy In 10 Days.Arthur is a law-abiding straight male. Eames is a flirty gay Brit. Eames’ best friend, Cobb sends out a challenge: a dare for him to make out with Arthur within a period of ten days. Eames never, ever turns down a good challenge.
Will Eames get Arthur in his bed? Or will he fall head over heels for him instead?
I KNOW THIS IS A FIC IVE READ IT BEFORE BUT WHERE IS THE LINK I FEEL COMPELLED TO READ AGAIN
HOW CAN YOU NOT HAVE THE LINK
A bit nervous around the cute bartender.
