Tom Hardy plans to put a pub in his backyard.
Sober for over a decade, the 37-year old Legend star wants to turn his London home’s outhouse, a British term for shed or barn built on the grounds of a home, into a space where he can entertain his closest friends.
A source said to the Daily Mirror: ”Tom is converting an outhouse into a ‘socializing space’ in his garden, but it’s pretty much going to be a private pub for his mates to hang out in.”
The insider added: ”It’s going to be kitted out like an old fashioned boozer/gentlemen’s club. He likes the idea of entertaining all his mates at home, with the atmosphere of a night out.”
Hardy’s idea of building a boozer right on his door step might set off alarm bells for his nearest and dearest. Earlier this year, he disclosed the fact that he is lucky to be alive after battling a serious drug and alcohol addiction.
He also said: ”If I had four pints and half a bottle of vodka I could turn this room into an absolute f***ing nightmare in about three minutes.”
The Mad Max hunk, who also wrestled with a debilitating cocaine addiction until his late 20s, checked into rehab in 2003 to conquer his demons and has been sober ever since.
Hardy is now expecting a baby with his wife Charlotte Riley, whom he married in July 2013, and is looking forward to the addition to his family. He already has son Louis, seven, with his ex-girlfriend Rachael Speed.
