What makes me sad about this is, things will never be the same again. I bet from now on, there will never be a moment when he thinks to himself “I wonder if that fan over there is batshit crazy or that one over there?”. He has always been approachable with fans because he is also a huge movie fan…
I always feel a bit sick when this happens to ANY celebrity, let alone one I adore. Celebrities are just people, they deserve privacy, they deserve space, and they don’t deserve some sort of twisted revenge because SOMEONE thinks they’re entitled to someone else’s time or attention. I am so endlessly exhausted by the entitlement culture that’s become so pervasive in recent years. And it’s everywhere, not just in fandoms, not just in media culture.
Having had my own brief brush with fame, I can tell you that it’s not something I would ever want or could deal with. I have the utmost respect for people who live their lives in the limelight where they can be and ARE scrutinized to death by the media and by fans. Have all the fantasies you want, but ffs keep them where they belong. They’re no different than any of us, and you wouldn’t want someone doing it to you. Nobody owes you SHIT.
The world owes you nothing. You deserve what you’ve worked for and nothing more. NOTHING more. Don’t reblog those pictures, don’t share them, and don’t think for a second that Tom owes you anything more than he’s already given all of us.
