Tom Hardy Gets Wet, Wild & Wise In Hyundai Commercial

Beautifully shot Hyundai commercial starring the woofy Tom Hardy.

Staring over the edge of a high cliff, hunky Hardy pauses for just a second before jumping into the ocean as his voiceover says:

“There was not a goal in mind. Only questioning the world around us. What can be different? What can be better? This questioning of the status quo has a rippling effect. It leads us down a different path. It is the questions that set us apart. And in the end, discovering who we are.”

At the end, Tom stares back at companions who have yet to jump.

I’m guessing it has to do with not being afraid to take a leap. But, I’m just happy to look at a wet and wild Tom Hardy.

Tom Hardy Takes An Icy Dip Naked

How could I not post this?

In scenes from Driven to Extreme: Coldest Road, Tom Hardy and former Formula one driver Mika Salo brave a plunge in a frozen Yukon river followed by a life saving sauna.

Warning some scenes may contain a naked Tom Hardy wearing a felt hat while being beaten on his most excellent bare rump with a bush.

The TV series is described as such: Hollywood actors join forces with former Formula One driver Mika Salo and 2003 World Superbike champion Neil Hodgson, to take on the world’s most extreme roads.

I’m not asking questions – I don’t have to understand. I just get to enjoy Tom and his furry, naked goodness 🙂

Happy Hump (Rump) Day!

Tom Hardy Addresses Recent Sexuality Question: “I’m Entitled To My Privacy”

Tom Hardy

In a lengthy interview with The Daily Beast, actor Tom Hardy explains his reaction to a reporter’s recent question about his “ambiguous sexuality:”

“I think everybody is entitled to the right to privacy. There should be elegant ways to approach any topic, and there’s a time and place to approach anything and have a good, common sense conversation about anything. I do think that there’s a responsibility for people to own the way that they speak publicly. This doesn’t stop us from being human beings; some things are private. I’m under no obligation to share anything to do with my family, my children, my sexuality—that’s nobody’s business but my own. And I don’t see how that can have anything to do with what I do as an actor, and it’s my own business. If you knew me as a friend, then sure, we’d talk about anything. But that was a public forum, and for someone to inelegantly ask a question that seemed designed entirely to provoke a reaction, and start a topic of debate… It’s important destigmatizing sexuality and gender inequality in the workplace, but to put a man on the spot in a room full of people designed purely for a salacious reaction? To be quite frank, it’s rude. If he’d have said that to me in the street, I’d have said the same thing back: ‘I’m sorry, who the fuck are you?’

“What he had to talk about was actually interesting, but how he did it was so inelegant. And I appreciate that I could probably have more grace as a human being, but I’m just a bloke. I’m just a man. And I’m just a man doing a job. I’m not a role model for anyone, and you’re asking me something about my private life in a room full of people. I don’t want to discuss my private life with you. I don’t know you! Why would I share that with a billion people? Also, if you felt it was so important for people to feel confident to talk about their sexuality, why would you put somebody on the spot in a room full of people and decide that was the time for them to open up about their sexual ambiguity? There’s also nothing ambiguous about my sexuality, anyway. I know who I am. But what does that have to do with you? And why am I a part of something now that, however legitimate, I haven’t offered my services for? It’s not about what he and his publication stands for, none of that is offensive, and on the contrary, it’s very admirable, and an important issue. But how I was asked was incredibly inelegant, and I just thought it was disrespectful and counterproductive to what he stands for.”

In case you missed it, here’s video of the odd moment at a press conference for Hardy’s new movie Legend:

Tom Hardy Shuts Down Reporter’s Questions Regarding His Sexuality Like A Boss

At a Toronto International Film Festival press conference for the new film Legend starring Randy Report fave Tom Hardy, Daily Xtra reporter Graeme Coleman learned that Hardy doesn’t suffer fools who ask foolish questions easily.

Here’s how it went down:

Coleman: In the film your character is very open about his sexuality. But given interviews you’ve done in the past your own sexuality seems a bit more ambiguous. Do you find it hard for celebrities to talk to media about their sexuality?

Hardy: What on earth are you on about?

Coleman: I was referring to an interview given to Attitude magazine a few years ago.

Hardy: But what is your question?

Coleman: I was wondering if you find it difficult for celebrities to talk about their sexuality.

Hardy: I don’t find it difficult for celebrities to talk about their sexuality. Are you asking me about my sexuality?

Coleman: Um, sure.

Hardy: Why?

Coleman: Um…

Hardy: Thank you.

Watch the exchange below. Tom Hardy FTW!

Tom Hardy Loves Dogs

I. Just. Can’t. Take. Much. More…

As if his talent wasn’t enough. As if the fact that he’s easy on the eyes wasn’t enough.

NOW – we get the full picture of Tom Hardy. He is a dog lover.

Vanity Fair has gathered together a multitudinous list of dog mentions in interviews over the years. And it’s quite the list.

Just this excerpt from a Details article from earlier this year:

“Do you believe in serendipity? I do. No such thing as coincidence. So here’s my dog, right? [Displays a photo on his phone] His name was Mad Max when I got him. Like the first dog I ever had. Anyway, I fell in love with Max’s mom, Cass, when I was 16. My friend had her. And I was like, ‘If she ever has puppies, please can I have a dog?’ He was like, ‘Yeah, sure.’ And then my friend disappeared, and I never saw him again. But I went to visit his mom, see how she was and say hello. And she said, ‘Oh, we’ve got something for you here.’ And I open up the door, and there was Mad Max. And I was like, ‘I don’t like that name.’ ‘Cause he’s not mad, he’s just misunderstood.”

And then there’s this bit from Glamour in 2014 where Tom admits to leaving the TV on for the dogs. (I do this all the time for my pack):

“I’m into Come Dine with Me at home, religiously. I’m an absolute fanatic,” said Tom, 36, adding: “I put it on for the dogs as well when I go out. They’ve got to feel that someone’s in the house.”

Head over to VF for much more evidence that I’m not misguided in my small obsession on Tom Hard.

Dogs Rule.

And so does Tom Hardy.

Tom Hardy Covers Esquire

Randy Report favorite Tom Hardy covers Esquire Magazine for their May issue.

Among other things, Hardy addresses stories that he’s “difficult:”

‘I have a reputation for being difficult,’ he says. ‘And I am. I am actually. But I’m not unreasonable. It used to be that if somebody hurt me I’d lash out a bit, in order to get them to stop. It ultimately comes from fear. If I cause enough of a mess, then people will never ask me again to do something I don’t want to do. But that sort of backfires after a while so you don’t want to do that. You grow up.’
