>>960 I thought the remark was maybe about all those terrible reviews for ISTL - which nobody has dared ask him about, I notice. You pick your projects, you do the work and you don't pay attention to people's opinions.
I can respect him for not running away screaming "it's shit and it's not my fault!" Lots of actors get embarrassed about publicising something once it's become clear it is a critical flop, and I find that really unattractive.
Equally it's fine to realise that you get the odd spot and, if left alone, dress like a homeless person, and want to do something about those things. I suppose most actors use stylists and makeup artists to some degree. But the sudden explosion of Team Tom says to me he wants that fame thang real bad right now. So his comments come off badly.
He doesn't really do things by halves does he? It makes me think of the Thor 2 tour - he had a makeup person and Olly and I think someone else travelling with him then, and he was just as mad - turning up to the opening of an envelope all across SE Asia. Yet at SDCC last year he was wearing his own "creations". Maybe he embraces all this only to the extent that the studio pays for his entourage?
