A recent chat between Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch had us throwing back to Bonnie Ware's memoir, The Top Five Regrets of the Dying — A Life Transformed by the Dearly Departing
We already know that Brit boys Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch form the man sandwich of your dreams. But put one against the other in an interview for W, and you'll find that things can get intimate pretty quickly. From chatting about how Hiddleston could be the next James Bond to how being Loki has changed his life, Marvel's new Doctor Strange (Cumberbatch, in case you were wondering) also posed a question on regrets.
It's this revealing moment where Hiddleston brought us back to Bonnie Ware's book published in 2011, The Top Five Regrets of the Dying: A Life Transformed by the Dearly Departing. An Australian palliative care nurse, Ware wrote the memoir after having spent years listening to the patients she had cared for. "Weirdly enough, at the top of the list was, 'I wish I hadn't worked so hard'", mused Hiddleston.
If you're curious to know what the other four regrets were, have a read below: 1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. 2. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings. 3. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends. 4. I wish that I had let myself be happier.
Makes you have a think, doesn't it? Be moved like Hiddleston and make the change — it's never too late.
