Man Crush Monday: Tom Hardy

Unless you have children aged six or under it unlikely you spent your Sunday evening watching CBeebies. For those that do, they were treated to our Man Crush Monday, Tom Hardy making a much hyped appearance on CBeebies’ Bedtime Stories – what a way to end your Mother’s Day!   Hardy has been a familiar face on British TV and film for almost 15 years. The west London born actor left drama school early to take up a role in TV mini series Band of Brothers and hasn’t looked back since. In 2012 he starred as super villain Bane in Dark Knight Rises opposite Christian Bale and in 2015 film goers saw him in his highly anticipated role as a leading man in the remake of the film that launched Mel Gibson’s Hollywood career – George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road. The actor currently stars as Alfie Solomons in period crime drama Peaky Blinders and is currently filming Season 3 of the popular BBC drama…


Least likely to…not ask questions.  The actor readily admits he’s nosey and puts it down to his fascination with people. He explains, “…And I like people. I like to know what you’re really up to. I’m a bit of a nosey busybody. Why do they do the things they do? Why are they prepared to do the things they do to get what they want? When? Where? Who?”


Impress him with…dogs.  The actor rescued two stray dogs from the streets whilst he was filming in the US.


Mention…modelling. Before finding fame as an actor Hardy won a viewer’s modelling competition on popular 90s early morning show The Big Breakfast.



And another thing…Hardy speaks fluent French…
