Tom Hardy

Edward Thomas Hardy was born on 15th September 1977. He is an English actor and producer. His debut was the 2001 movie Black Hawk Down and his other notable works include the 2012 movie Star Trek: Nemesis and 2012 crime drama Lawless. Most people recognise him as Bane from the 2012 movie The Dark Knight Rises. He also plays the role of Max Rockatansky in 2015 movie Mad Max: Fury Road. He also appeared in TV series like Band of Brothers from 2001, Peaky Blinders from 2013 and most recently, Taboo from 2017. He gained instant fame after the 2010 movie Inception.

Tom Hardy Religion

Tom Hardy has never spoken about his faith in public. There was one time where he said that "dog" spelled backwards is "God" but that is the only remote mention of faith we could find. He is of Irish and English  descent and the only son to Edward and Anne Hardy. He was born in Hammersmith, London but was raised in East Sheen, London. If we were to take a guess, it'd be that he is Christian, keep in mind, it's only a guess. 

Tom Hardy Political Views

Tom Hardy has never said anything that is political in the tradition sense and the lack of an official Twitter profile doesn't help either. In fact, he does not have any social media accounts that we know of as of yet. He does love animals, especially dogs and has spoken out against poaching. One of his dogs appeared in a 2012 PETA campaign that encouraged people to adopt instead of buying.

Who is he dating?

Tom has been married to Charlotte Riley since 4th of July, 2014.  She is also a British actress who appeared in the movie Edge of Tomorrow and co-starred in the movie London Has Fallen. The couple has a child together. 
Prior to his marriage to Charlotte, he was married to Sarah Ward from 1999 to 2004. Their marriage didn't work out. 
Later, he was in a relationship with Rachael Speed from 2004 to 2009 who is a British Assistant Director. He has a son with her. 

Tom Hardy Hobbies

Besides acting, Tom Hardy lives to do Jiu-Jitsu and Capoeira which he loves and we're guessing that's what he does in his free time. He also loves to watch reality TV and says that he gets ideas for his characters from there. 

Interesting Facts
