Tom Hardy has revealed that he has no plans to head to Hollywood - because his son lives in London.

Despite his rising status in the US, the Warrior star - dad to three-year-old Louis, whose mum is his ex-girlfriend Rachael Speed - insisted that he wants to fulfil his fatherly duties and be around for his child.

"I'm not going anywhere because my little boy's here. I mean, he's three and lives with his mum and her husband and I can't - so [that's] the bottom line. I'm someone's dad, first and foremost and that's very grounding," he said.

Tom, who next stars as villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, admitted he's just as "lairy" as he was before he became famous.

"I've been doing this job for 12 years. Nothing has changed in the way that I approach my work," he continued.

"I'm not going to not walk to and from my shop to go and get milk or take the Tube or drive around town with the rag down and the music up because I'm still as lairy as I ever was and I'd continue to be so anyway, whether I was working or not working.

"All that has really changed is that I have more opportunity to do other bigger [things] - on a bigger field. I'm ultimately quite boring. I do my job," he added.
