London: Tom Hardy says he became an actor because he is good at lying and manipulating people.

"Acing is really a mixture of lying, manipulation and the study of action-reaction. And camouflage - hiding yourself in other languages, bodies and shapes," quoted Hardy as saying.

"The only thing that kept my attention was to play and have fun and manipulate. I`ve always been a liar, always been able to manipulate. I pretty much get whatever I want," he added.
