Tom Hardy says his son guided 'Venom' role

Tom Hardy says his son, Louis, guided his performance in Venom.

The 41-year-old actor discussed the 10-year-old's influence while attending the movie's Los Angeles premiere Monday at Regency Village Theater.

"He was pretty much in the driving seat for most of it, and I did use him as my anthology and mythology wizard," Hardy told Entertainment Tonight.

"He told me what I was doing wrong and I was doing more things wrong than I was doing right because children are deeply honest. He was my little spirit guide in that aspect. So as far as I'm concerned, I passed his [test], and that's the best I could do," he said.

Venom is based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, who was previously portrayed by Topher Grace in Spider-Man 3. The movie is directed by Ruben Fleischer and co-stars Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed.

"I have a really good feeling about it," Hardy said of the film. "I know the whole team has poured a lot of love into it, and I've really enjoyed it."

Hardy is parent to Louis with ex-girlfriend Rachael Speed. He previously told Variety he took the role in Venom due to his son's love for the character.

"First and foremost, I'm a dad," the star said. "My son came to me with a specific character that he absolutely fell in love with. I started to take a look at it myself and then, as if by magic, a script appeared on the horizon."

Venom opens in theaters Friday.

Ansel Elgort cast in Steven Spielberg's 'West Side Story'

Ansel Elgort has been cast in the lead role in director Steven Spielberg's upcoming adaptation of West Side Story.

Elgort, best known for his role in 2017's Baby Driver, will portray Tony, a member of the Jets who falls in love with Maria, the sister of the leader of the Sharks.

The role of Tony was originated by Larry Kert on Broadway and was portrayed by Richard Beymer in the 1961 film version of West Side Story.

West Side Story, a musical inspired by Romeo and Juliet, follows the story of rival street gangs of different racial backgrounds -- whites and Puerto Ricans -- and the love story that happens in the middle of their feud.

Spielberg is also producing the film alongside Kevin McCollum and Kristie Macosko Krieger. Production is set to begin in Summer 2019.

LOOSE LIPS:

"After posting a picture of myself here and uttering the words #cancer and #hairloss, I felt liberated, deliriously free and completely me. How or why this simple act gave me such a powerful lift I did not question, but I thanked God or whatever gave me the internal push to move forward and expose myself."
--Marcia Cross, revealing she recently overcame anal cancer, on Instagram
