Tom Wilkinson: down with the big boys

6 April 2011 6:19 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Tom Wilkinson was in his mid-40s when he decided being a respected theatre actor wasn't enough. He tells Stephen Moss about cracking Hollywood, playing Joe Kennedy – and the two women who inspired him

Tom Wilkinson is a most unlikely Hollywood star. For a start, this interview is taking place not at the glitzy Dorchester hotel – time-honoured home of the film junket – but at his unassuming house in north London. Though he hates giving interviews and is being forced to miss his beloved Friends on TV, he is too polite to ask me to leave, and I hang around in his living room for two hours asking ever more incoherent questions. As if this wasn't enough, he then drives me a couple of miles to the station. Now ask yourself: would Tom Cruise do that?

But that's the point. The tall, angular, intense, somewhat intimidating Wilkinson doesn't want to be like Tom Cruise, »
