Wow. So anyone who posts something positive in here is Luke Windsor?!

No. I come for a peek in here every now and again, today in particular because I'm off work sick and looking for a distraction from the lurgy. I comment when I have something to say.

I'm actually a fan, and I tend towards optimism. I happen to genuinely think that Tom makes pretty good choices in his work - at least as good as any of his peers - is extremely attractive, is extremely talented, has huge amounts of charisma and stage presence. I have genuinely enjoyed the vast majority of his work - I loved High Rise, and I loved Crimson Peak. I know I'm not the only one - just because a film isn't unversally critically acclaimed or doesn't make huge amounts of money at the box office doesn't mean it's not a successful film on its own terms. Both of those films have people who will passionately defend them as works of art, as well as people who didn't care for them.

People here seem very keen to overanalyze small things - like, you know, going out to the theatre and dinner with a friend, which god knows I do all the time with no romantic involvment - and to be prophets of doom, proclaiming his looks to be going, his career to be on the slide, etc etc. There's a lot of negativity floating around.

As for discussion of his 2013 - well, people in general don't understand how long films take to get made. He was almost certainly lining up his 2014/15 work in 2013, and he has almost certainly spent some of his 'time off' this year setting up work he'll be doing next year and later. Anyone who has been paying attention to the various rumoured projects he has been linked to over the past couple of years should realise that he has been offered projects that he has turned down (we know from the Sony hack that he turned down a project with Sacha Baron Cohen), and that projects he has been interested in didn't manage to get financed, so the idea that he took ISTL because he was lacking work is faintly ridiculous - especially post-Avengers!

And you know, everyone needs a break eventually. It's not good for actors to spend all their time on sets - they need to decompress at some point!
