Tom Hardy admits that "it takes some juggling" to communicate with his family.

The Dark Knight Rises actor is father to four-year-old son Louis from a previous relationship.

Tom is often traveling to film, but he can't bear to be away from his boy for too long.

"I like to go no longer than three weeks without seeing my loved ones, but it does take some juggling," Tom shared in the August edition of Company Magazine.

"I'm very much aware of being a 'Skype father,' which is sad. But I have to have the finances to make sure [my son will] be secure, and I can only do that by working."

Tom loves watching his tyke grow up.

"[Louis] plays rugby. He's rubbish at it but he's really full of heart," he said. "He's a beautiful boy. But I would think that, wouldn't I?"

Tom, 34, is currently in a relationship with actress Charlotte Riley, 30.

He confesses that he can be a bit of a demanding boyfriend at times.

"[I'm] quite needy," he said. "I was an only child so I got a lot of attention from my mum. I think that is naturally going to transfer onto any poor woman who's in my life. However, if you were my partner, you'd get a lot of attention back."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
