Watch: Tom Hardy is Looking for Some Muscle


Tom Hardy appeared on Alan Carr's UK  Chatty Man talk show and accepted his Rising Star BAFTA award. He also talked to Carr about Inception and said that he'd be putting on muscle for his role as Bane in the next Batman installment, The Dark Knight Rises:

"Have you seen the Joel Schumacher Batman & Robin? Doesn't look very menacing does he?...I'm going to need to bulk up a lot for it. That's a lot of weight to put on and I've got to start shooting in May. I've got to go up to about 13 or 14 stone. I'm 12 and a bit now, so I only have a few months to do that."

  5. Why all this glorification of straight men on this blog?

  6. This guy doesn't do much for me. I'll have to pass on this incarnation of BATMAN.

  11. @Matt26 + @PITT90:

    It's called "self expression". Get used to it. His tats make him hotter than most of the stuff you guys pine and drool over.

  12. He could charm the pants right off a fella...

  13. He was very hot in "Inception" so he does clean up nicely- yeah bit too may tats but he is charming.

  14. those tatts are new i think; last time i saw him with his shirt off, he was tatt-less. i dont mind the odd one or two but yeah, too many here.. Ppl dont imagine how they are gonna look when they're 50, 60 etc. on saggy skin..

  15. @Atheist: Be careful. Apparently you're not allowed to dislike tats without being someone who likes show tunes or denies self-expression (although, personally, I like both ... just not ink on someone's beautiful skin).

  16. To the poster who said that TOm is Bi,CORRECTION!

    He is NOT bisexual.The story about him doing a guy was denied.

  17. The man has a great kisser. Will also age into a very stunning man if he keeps himself up and doesn't booze it too hard and quits smoking. Tats are a bit much but it's his bod. Usually the overly pierced and inked have low self esteem and other issues so he might really be an insecure softy but a sweetheart just the same.

    Wow. It must be a real labor of love for you to go to every single site where someone dares mention Tom Hardy is as bisexual as a huge flashing neon bisexual dildo on the top ofthe Hollywood sign (because darling anyone with a functioning braincell can see it) - and reprimand people in exactly the same finger-wagging style. Are you getting paid enough? Do you need to take a break and go on the sandwich run for the rest of the PR department or are you busy cutting out Tom Hardy Loves Me lovehearts and sticking them over your Twilight bedspread?
