Star Trek Movie Failure Ruinous For Hardy

Saturday, October 3rd, 2009

Earlier this summer, Tom Hardy, who played Shinzon in 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis, claimed that the movie’s poor performance led him into addiction.

After Star Trek: Nemesis flopped at the box office, Hardy, thought to be the “Next Big Thing,” descended into alcohol and crack addition, which cost him his marriage. “I went entirely off the rails and I’m lucky I didn’t have some terrible accident or end up in prison or dead, because that’s where I was going,” he said. “Now I know my beast and I know how to manage it. It’s like living with a four-hundred-pound orangutan that wants to kill me. It’s much more powerful than me, doesn’t speak the same language and it runs around the darkness of my soul. I would sell my mother for a rock of crack.”
