Tom Hiddleston: I'm 'lucky' to be an actor

Tom Hiddleston feels "very lucky" to be an actor.

The 'High‑Rise' star is thrilled he has been able to take on so many different acting roles but understands if people are growing "tired" of his face being everywhere.

He said: "I apologise, unreservedly, first of all, for being everywhere. I'm sure it's deeply tiresome and nobody wants to ever see my face again.

"There's a strange coincidence in that the work of the last 18 months of my life has all been released at the same time. And for me, each piece of work has such integrity and focus. But it must seem different to be in the audience. I do feel very lucky that I'm allowed to do so many different things."

The 35-year-old actor recently stripped off for a steamy scene in television drama 'The Night Manager' and admits he is glad he missed all the "surprising" response to it on social media.

He added to the New York Times newspaper: "It was probably very good that I was away in Vietnam making 'Kong: Skull Island' when that happened. When we shot the scene, I didn't see it as being any more or less significant than any other scene in 'The Night Manager'. The response is surprising, but it is what it is, I guess. The thing about any love scene, I think the representation is always quite different from the actual experience of making it."
