Tom Hardy and Other Lady-Boner Killers on Twitter

Tom Hardy is now on Twitter. Yes, Bane. Yes, the guy with the puppies. The guy from Warrior. The object of your affections. The man of your dreams. Now you can read his innermost thoughts in 140-character snippets. And you can view his Instagram videos to your heart's content.

*Record scratch*

What was that? Tom Hardy in a stupid hat, telling me to check out his official website, looking like some low-rent Kevin Federline impersonator? Consider my nether regions disengaged.

There are some actors who do really well on Twitter. Patton Oswalt comes to mind. Josh Malina. These are smart guys, who are also funny. They're not a brand when they're on Twitter. They're just like the rest of us -- commenting on the day, shooting the shit, being regular.

For most other actors, Twitter is not a good look on them. These are not people accustomed to writing their own material, is what I'm saying. Many of them are all about pimping their own projects or sob stories or whatever meme was popular three weeks ago. When I joined Twitter, I started following Ashton Kutcher because that's what I thought you were supposed to do when you joined Twitter. I quickly jumped ship because every other tweet he sent was about some pet project he was promoting or some RT of a random follower's post about an auntie with a really bad cold who needs our prayers. He was basically like all those relatives you hide on Facebook.

My biggest lady-boner killer on Twitter, however, has to be John Cusack. Yes, John Cusack, Chicago's own. I've always thought of him as this cool, smart guy. He was Lloyd Dobler, for goodness's sake! He could do no wrong in my mind. And then he started tweeting. The man...does not understand what punctuation is or how to use it. He puts words together in a decidedly artless manner. He's also all about pet projects and pet peeves and pet world issues. And none of those are bad things, necessarily, but when you can't be bothered to put an apostrophe in the right place, your words lose a bit of their electricity. And a nation of women's loins do as well.

Have any celebrities' antics on Twitter affected your view of them (either positively or negatively)?
