Tom Hardy Lost a Bet So Leonardo DiCaprio Picked His Next Tattoo
If you’ve seen Tom Hardy shirtless, you know he loves expressing himself through his tattoos. (If you haven’t, we feel so sorry for you.) He isn’t all that excited about his next one, though.
In a profile by Esquire, Hardy talked about a bet he made with Leonardo DiCaprio during filming of The Revenant. A bet that Hardy lost. DiCaprio bet that Hardy would be nominated for an Academy Award for his role in the film. Hardy bet that he wouldn’t. The loser would have to get a tattoo of the winner’s choosing.
“I haven’t got it yet because it sucks,” Hardy told the magazine.
The tattoo in question was recreated for the interviewer. “He wrote, in this really shitty handwriting, ‘Leo knows everything,'” Hardy said. “‘Ha! I was like, ‘OK, I’ll get it done, but you have to write it properly.'”
As the profile points out, Hardy’s tattoos mean a lot to him, symbolizing his commitment, both to other people and to himself. He has the name of his wife, the name of his agent who got him into Hollywood, the London skyline, a Chinese dragon and religious figures, among other things.
We’ll be on the lookout for the “Leo knows everything” tattoo to take its place of honor among the rest. Check out the gallery above for more of Hardy and his ink.
