BANG! NEWS – Tom Hiddleston has learned to “let go” of the negative things his critics say about him, because he knows he can’t take “responsibility” for other people’s thoughts.
The 38-year-old actor has admitted he struggles with fame at times, especially when people say things about him that aren’t “based in any reality”, and said he’s been working on not taking “responsibility” for other people’s thoughts.
He said, “It’s not possible, and nor should it be possible, to control what anyone thinks about you. Especially if it’s not based in any, um … if it’s not based in any reality. [I’ve learned] to let go of the energy that comes toward me, be it good or bad. Because naturally in the early days I took responsibility for it.”
And now, the Avengers: Endgame star said he’s become more “protective” over his personal life.
Speaking to The New York Times, he said, “And yes, I’m protective about my internal world now in probably a different way. That’s because I didn’t realise it needed protecting before.”
