This means why?! Tom Hardy said he was not a fan of working on a rom-com, and he will probably never do it again. The British hunk, 37, opened up to USA Today about his experience on set with Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine back in 2012’s big studio romantic comedy This Means War.
“I love to do things I hadn’t done before,” Hardy said of working on the McG-directed flick. Except he hated the experience. In the movie, Hardy and Pine played CIA agents and best friends who engage in “war” over Witherspoon. Despite the hype it received, the film was considered a box office flop.
“I didn’t understand how you could do something, which is so much fun, and be so miserable doing it,” Hardy recalled of his experience.
In fact, The Dark Knight Rises villain blamed himself for behaving like an “other” on set. “I probably won’t do a romantic comedy again,” he confessed. “Do you know what I mean?”
These days, Hardy has been busy promoting his movie The Drop, which was the late James Gandolfini‘s final film. “The man I met I loved,” Hardy recalled. “He was a brilliant actor. Super talented. Super sensitive, vulnerable, emotionally articulate, generous, kind.”
