Tom Hardy: I need karaoke in my life

Tom Hardy’s perfect night out involves karaoke and a kebab.

The 35-year-old actor was born in London and revealed his favourite haunts to visit. Tom likes to unwind with friends by belting out his favourite tunes and then filling up on a meaty late-night snack. The star's preferred kebab shop offers more than food, it has insightful conversation too.

“The Groucho Club, followed by the Karaoke Box in Soho and then Maroush II, the all-night kebab shop in Beauchamp Place, or Pala Kebab House in south-west London,” Tom told British newspaper The Telegraph when asked to describe his perfect night out in his hometown. “They make a mean doner with chilli sauce, and the owner, Serge, used to look out for me growing up in that community. It’s a real hub for intelligence and information.”

Tom’s hectic filming schedule leaves little time for relaxation. He is “lucky” to take one vacation a year, but often dreams about his next holiday destination.

“Somewhere hot where the air is fresh and smells of pine, with good food, where I can spend lazy days by the pool or next to a cool river with a book. I need to chill, really, and take stock. A nice long swim in a lake would be fantastic, too,” he explained. “A lie in. Plenty of sun, fun with loved ones, and a good book. Not touching the phone and not thinking about work at all would be a dream, but it’s almost impossible these days. Doing something new and special also gets my vote.”

Tom also revealed details about his most lavish trip. The Dark Knight Rises star visited the Maldives with his fiancé Charlotte Riley, and was blown away by the idyllic surroundings and top notch service.

“We once went to Lily Beach Resort in the Maldives, which was a first for us as a couple. We’re not used to being pampered like that. It’s a beautiful tropical-island hotel, with a suite on stilts in the lagoon, scuba diving and snorkelling, hot sun, sand you can pour like water from your palm, coral lagoons and massages every day by Balinese ladies who spoiled us rotten,” he smiled. “A butler called Ishlal who drove us to and from breakfast, lunch and dinner on a little golf cart like the Popemobile and served us candlelit meals on the beach at night. We watched turtles, fed fish, rays and sharks with bread rolls from the pier. It really was out-of-this-world luxurious.”
