BAFTA-award winning actor Tom Hollander contributed to the Sunday Times’ article, ‘A life in the day’ and his hilarious words have gone viral.
While legions of celebrities have written for the weekly feature and kept things fairly tame, Tom, 53, was lauded by fans for discussing peeing in the dark, sleeping pills and masturbation.
He wrote: ‘I wake up generally at 3 or 4am. Not because I’m like Margaret Thatcher, but because I need to pee.

‘I pee in the darkness using my phone screen to illuminate the target, then often take half a sleeping pill (antihistamine), turn on the World Service very quietly and try to go to sleep.’
After discussing holding his girlfriend in different positions, or the pillow if she is absent, he examined his bald patch, weighs himself and pulls his stomach in.
And if that wasn’t enough of an insight, he pens: ‘If it’s sunny I might go for a cycle ride down the canal, if it’s raining I might masturbate or doze.’
