Tom Hardy Speaks Out About Revealing Myspace Pictures

Tom Hardy has become known as quite the heartthrob, the man picking up more than a few admirers during his career as an actor. Not only that, but he’s also received many positive reviews for appearing in numerous films. This is why it became quite the surprise when pictures from his old Myspace profile started to do the rounds on the internet. They showed a new side to the actor that none of us had ever had the chance to see.

The internet briefly became obsessed with the profile (which has now sadly been removed) especially once Buzzfeed wrote an article about the photographs earlier on this year. Since then, the celebrity hadn’t commented on the popularity of the photographs, until a recent interview where the subject was broached by Sky News.

In typical Hardy fashion, he took the subject head on with some charm. “I’ve got no shame about my MySpace photos, especially the one of me in my underpants, which is a glorious photo of a man in his natural habitat.” It’s not surprising that the celebrity is not ashamed as one thing that surely binds us in this world is how much we all change and progress as we age. “In America, they say, ‘You should be ashamed of this,’ but I’m actually not remotely ashamed — that is me in my natural habitat, thank you.”

Among his many roles, Hardy is also known for his body, something that he touched on when asked during the interview, saying that he “might not be an Adonis, but I like to think of myself as an Adonis in that photo.” With a humble acceptance of his youthful appearance in the photographs, it’s impossible not to smile as Tom Hardy deftly highlights how little he cares about the picture emerging from the depths of the internet.

Hardy has recently been in the news after turning down the poor attempts of a journalist to get him to discuss his sexuality at a press conference. Before that, he shut down a different reporter who asked him whether or not he wondered why there were so many women in the new Mad Max film, which should’ve been a “man’s film,” with a simple no.
