Feel free to ogle! Tom Hardy has no problem with that blast from the past he got earlier this year, when a crop of photos from his now-defunct Myspace page started making the rounds online again.
The pics, which have popped up occasionally since 2012, most recently during the Mad Max: Fury Road press tour in May, show the Legend actor in various poses and states of undress — and they are, in Hardy’s own words, “glorious.”
“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,” the Brit, 37, told Sky News on Monday, Sept. 7, of the headline-making shots.
Hardy went on to joke about what he called his “tighty-whitey budgie smugglers,” saying, “In America, they actually think you should be ashamed of this. I’m not remotely ashamed of that. That is me in my natural habitat.”
As for his tattoo-adorned physique? “I might not be an Adonis, but I like to think of myself as an Adonis in that photo,” he quipped, laughing.
Speaking of legendarily handsome men, Hardy has recently been in the headlines for another reason: According to UK bettors, the Inception actor is the odds-on favorite to take over the role of James Bond from Daniel Craig.
Asked about the 007 rumors in his interview with Sky News, Hardy replied simply, “I think anybody would consider doing Bond, wouldn’t they?”
