Any day that Dark Knight and Revenant star Tom Hardy takes his shirt off is a good day (and occasionally there are great days when he takes off even more), and thankfully it’s one of those days, as pics of him showing off his furry chest in an Esquire photoshoot have popped up on the net.
As you can see, he’s got plenty of ink, which Esquire notes includes the, ‘London skyline, a Chinese dragon, his wife’s name (and his ex-wife’s initials), a Madonna and child and a Buddha with an AK47’. However he also notes that while he lost a bet with Leo DiCaprio on the Revenant set that meant he was supposed to get a tattoo reading, ‘Leo is always right!’, he hasn’t done that yet.
Tom will next be seen in TV’s Taboo (which resulted in a series of paparazzi nude on-set shows appearing online earlier this year), which Hardy also co-created, and follows an adventurer who during the 19th Century returns to England and sets out for revenge, building a shipping empire in the process. It starts on BBC1 from 7 January.
