On money and fame-
Tom has a net worth of $35 million in his assets and admits that no one in the family knew what to do with all the money he was making. Here are his views on money and fame.
- – I bought a lot of rubbish things that kids buy: skateboards and clothes and typical teenage stuff. And, as soon as I could, I wasted a lot of money on cars – BMW’s mostly – for myself and my family.
- - To me, fame is not a positive thing. The idea of being famous is a lot better than the reality. It’s fantastic when you go to premieres and people cheer you, but it’s not real.
