Tom Hiddleston Talks Activism & New Photo Shoot
Frequent stage performer and featured THE AVENGERS and THOR franchise player Tom Hiddleston talks about his charity work for Africa in a new interview in addition to posing for a serious of provacative new photos.
Hiddleston tells Flaunt, "Every time you consider a job, you have to check in with your inner compass and say, 'Does this fit in with how I see what the work is for? Is this going to be something interesting and valuable to contribute to the world?'"
In speaking of his activism in Africa and his UNICEF blogging, he says he is merely "a town crier" for the cause, adding, "I'm someome who can write about it and make people aware, but I'm not distributing vaccines; I'm not organizing transportation; I can't make fortified milk for infants who are malnourished; I can't build schools and find jobs and build training systems; I'm not a chemist; I'm not an engineer; I'm not a politician - I'm just in a position where people, some people, a few people, will read what I've got to say."
Back in November, Hiddleston was quoted (available here) as saying he plans to return to theatre next following his hit most recent AVENGERS appearance and wrapping filming on THOR 2, relating, "I'm quite excited, I'm actively reading plays at the moment to try and find something interesting and different that I could do. I also think it would be nice, I need to test myself in that arena again."
Hiddleston is well-regarded for his extensive theatre resume, including celebrated runs in Shakespeare's OTHELLO and Chekhov's IVANOV, so let's hope he finds time amidst his fierce dedication to these worthwhile causes for at least a limited run sometime soon.
