Christopher Nolan is a remarkable director, with films like Inception, Memento, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight under his belt, but dude is a selfish a**hole. For almost all of 2011 Mr. Nolan took the most beautiful man in the world and, for the sake of his next film The Dark Knight Rises, made him look awful. Like awful, awful.
British heartthrob Tom Hardy had to shave his head and put on roughly 300 pounds (loose estimate) of muscle to play the villain Bane in the new installment of the Batman saga, transforming from dapper Brit to what, at first look, appeared to be a close cousin of Sloth from Goonies. It was a dark, dark time.
Lucky for us, Tom seems to love his hair and waistline as much as the rest of us and showed up to the London premiere of The Iron Lady back to his normal form — hot.
And, lest you think anyone is immune to the beauty that is Mr. Tom Hardy, let us just reference the Twitter of the brilliant Rob Delaney: “Santorum talks a good homophobia game, but imagine if Tom Hardy was like ‘Hey Rick, wanna sit on my dick?’ He’d be like ‘Uh, yeah!’”
Welcome back Tom.
