Tom Hardy Struggles While Answering Difficult Questions From Children And It's Adorable
(BBC Radio 1/YouTube)

In the upcoming anti-hero film, Venom, Tom Hardy plays journalist Eddie Brock.

Brock's fusion with an alien symbiote creates his dark alter-ego from the eponymous film title.

Trailers show the actor getting in touch with his sinister side.

But his recent interview with BBC Radio 1—in which he answered questions from junior callers—revealed a gentler, more adorable side.

Watch Hardy answer questions here.

Because all the callers were children, Hardy dignified each question with an answer, regardless of how wacky their innocent queries were.

Up first was five-year-old Cooper, who asked:

"How did you get into the TV?"

The actor humored them by answering:

"There's a little door 'round the back and inside there, there's various colleges."
"It's a little bit like Hogwarts but different. And there's an acting school in there as well. And after a period of time you graduate and eventually, you appear, when they let you, on the screen."

When BBC Radio interviewer Dev asked how the actor would exit the telly, Hardy simply explained:

"You open up the door and come back out again, and you close the door behind you. But that's a secret."

But being a father himself, his parental instincts kicked in to caution his new friend.

Hardy said:

"And also, Cooper, don't go around the back of the telly without your mom or dad watching you, okay? [Or] touch any wires or look for a door."

Eleven-year-old Lola, who's trying "really hard to behave," asked Hardy:

"What's the naughtiest thing you've ever done?"

"You don't want to know," he quipped, but then turned around and reminded her that "making an effort to try to be good is really, really important. Being yourself is more important."

"Enjoy being young 'cause it's very, very special."

Other questions included "What snack would you be?" and "What's your favorite princess?"

But the next question really made Hardy get in touch with his philosophical side.

A six-and-a-half-year-old goldfish enthusiast named Jimmy wondered if the actor preferred the little carps over humans.

Hardy gave a thoughtful answer.

"Jimmy, all sentient beings are important, you know, so I don't think you can love anything that's not sentient more than the other."
"And we can see ourselves in all living things."
"So one has to care about everything and approach it with love."
"Unless, of course, it attacks you. In which case, lovingly see it off with a big stick."

Not being able to contain himself after his thought-provoking answer, Hardy erupted in a mini giggle fit.

How can he be so silly and charming at the same time?

Venom was directed by Ruben Fleischer and will be distributed by Sony Pictures for an October 5, 2018 release in the United States.

Hardy will be joined by co-stars Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, and Reid Scott.

People Who've Witnessed An Act Of Witchcraft Share Their Experiences

Do you believe in magic?

I definitely do! My best friend reads tarot cards, and his predictions for me have always been accurate. I have to believe in magic! And I'm not the only one.

In the 1600s, people were notorious for believing in witchcraft. That's what led to the famous Salem Witch Trials. We don't torture or burn people at the stake anymore -- thankfully -- but that doesn't mean the belief in witchcraft has faded.

People make money by boasting the power of Sight. Magical talismans are sold for protection. Ouiji boards are constantly used to try and contact the dead.

Then there are people who have witnessed actual witchcraft themselves. If seeing is believing, those people are definitely believers.

Redditor hows_my_driving1, wanting to know more about real witchcraft, asked:

"people of reddit who have practiced or witnessed acts of witchcraft, voodoo or the occult. What was your experience?"

People Break Down Which High School Stereotypes They Fit Into

We all spend our formative years trying to figure out who we are. Who we think we are actually determines the subjects we take, the things we become fans of, and the friends we make.

This is especially true in high school. Whether it's because of who we already are, or because of labels others gave us, we all fit into different cliques and groups.

Being studious, I fit in well with the honors crowd. My tendency to start new clubs, as well as become a part of already existing ones, also earned me the unofficial title of "all-around joiner."

Curious about these stereotypes, Redditor MountEverest14 asked:

"What high school stereotype did you fit into?"
