Back in 2007, actor pals Benedict Cumberbatch (AKA Bumblesnuff Crimpysnitch) and Tom Hardy hadn't yet hit the big time.

When PopSugar found an old video from over a decade ago of their pair giving an interview, thank God they didn't keep it to themselves. It's gold.

The clip premeditates their media training, marriages and dapper outfits, and the pair are visibly nervous having a natter in a pub garden of all places.

Before we saw the video, we had major lust for Tom Hardy, but now it's reached dizzying new heights.

The awkwardness of Benedict is also more pure than our souls will ever be; the duo crack jokes with each other throughout the interview, which was to promote their DVD, Stuart: A Life Backwards.

They make an effort to try and explain the plotline of the flick, but pretty much fail, all in the cutest way possible of course.

Despite their apparent comfort with each other, Stuart: A Life Backwards was genuinely their first acting project together.

The acting pair didn't work together again for four years, until the remake of Tinker,Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Thank God that project had a bigger budget, is all we can say…

Age has been kind for Hardy and Cumberbatch, we desperately hope 2019 will be the year for their third collaboration. We want on-screen MAGIC, mmkay?


As hard as it is to believe, 2007 was a whole decade ago.

Oh, that's right ladies, toddlers who were doing nothing but toddling in 2007 are now gearing up to start secondary school, and yet you haven't aged a day. Ahem.

So, let's take a look at the TV, tracks and trends that kept you on your toes way back when…

1.  You wanted an iPhone so damn bad

Tomorrow it will be – wait for it – ten years since the first iPhone went on sale.

That's right, ladies; on June 29 2007, everything stepped up a gear, and a generation of people who once considered Nokia's Snake the height of cellular excitement were exposed to a whole new world of apps, messaging services and online features.

2. You were singing Umbrella

And so was every other person on planet Earth.

For ten whole weeks during the summer of 2007, Rihanna's track stayed at number one, and we thought nothing of repeating 'ella, ella, eh, eh, eh' until the end of time.

3. You watched David Hasslehof eat a burger

When you first heard that a video of David Hasslehof eating a burger was doing the rounds, you had your reservations.

But then you bit the bullet, searched those key words and found yourself mildly mesmorised by the actions of drunk TV star chowing down after a heavy night on the sesh.

4. You wondered how Paris Hilton would cope in jail

After being sentenced to 45 days behind bars, the public became engrossed in the socialite's trials and tribulations.

Who could ever forget the image of a tearful Paris behing driven from an LA courthouse by her mother?

5. You laughed at Miss Teen South Carolina

When Miss Teen South Carolina was asked why she believed one-fifth of Americans could not locate the US on a map, she had a lot to say.

It turns out that she personally believed that US Americans were unable to do so because some people out there in her nation don't have maps and she believed that their education such as South Africa and the Iraq everywhere like… such as… and she believed that they should… our education over here in the US… should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up ur future… for our children. *And breathe*

Thanks for that, Miss Teen South Carolina.

6. You cried along with Ellen

When Ellen DeGeneres made a heartfelt appeal for the return of Iggy the Dog, we wept alongside her.

Ten years on, and we still can't watch.

7. You tuned into Xposé

Hosted by Lorraine Keane, Karen Koster, Sybil Mulcahy, Aisling O’Loughlin and Lisa Cannon, the new TV3 show was Ireland's slice of celebrity and entertainment news.

And whether you wanted to or not, you always found yourself tuning in…

8. You obsessed over Celebrity Big Brother

It was one of the most explosive Celebrity Big Brothers to date, and with good reason.

With claims of racial tension, discrimination and outright bullying at the helm, the series, which featured Jade Goody, Shilpa Shetty and Danielle Lloyd, became an international incident.

9. You were totally here for Avril Lavigne's comeback

Umbrella may have been number one for all eternity, but Girlfriend was your personal anthem of the year.

And you didn't care who knew it.

10. You wore footless tights and denim skirts

And if your footless tights were fishnet, then all the better.

Oh, and if you could team that stellar combo with a pair of Converse you had artfully decorarted with Emo-like musings, then why hold back, girl?

11. Your Bebo skin was your main concern

Stars, hearts, black, pink; the choice was yours.

But Lord knows you simply couldn't choose, and spent most of your free time customising that page like a good thing.
