So Tom Hardy Did Sleep With Guys. Just Not All The Way

Turns out Tom Hardy’s discussion of sleeping with dudes before are authentic — but they’re old.

The Daily Mail quotes a 2008 Now magazine article, which itself picked up from an Attitude magazine cover story featuring Hardy, promoting RocknRolla. But when the Mail‘s piece came out, a “source” close to Hardy insisted he was merely quoting from a script. Not so!

And for what it’s worth, in his Attitude interview, while Hardy says he’s messed around with guys, he’s never done it “all, but I can imagine.” Us too, buddy.

    So, the news is the non-news was old news? That’s it?

  • Zach

    I’m sorry, is Queerty now pretending that a kajillion people didn’t point this out when the story broke, or when the publicist swooped in to deny?

  • boo radley

    PHEW. GLAD WE CLEARED THAT ONE UP.

  • MiKem

    So, did I get this right? He smoked the pipe but didn’t inhale?

  • DR

    what a surprise. the unnamed source was wrong and trying to cover stuff up.

  • Marcus

    The Tom Hardy Story keeps on giving.

  • ForeverGay

    What did I write? I wrote that he most likely never had sex with any man. Yet I got a lot of thumbs down and gay men disagreeing with me. You would think gay men having thousands of experiences with heterosexuals from day one of their lives and seeing many interviews just like the one Tom Hardy did would recognize what he said was a ploy to look cool, open-minded, and edgy. A lot of gay people are accommodating and/ or want validation from heterosexuals.

    It’s called bisexuality, people, sexuality is a lot more complex than Straight and Gay. There’s a lot between the 1 and 10 on the dial….

    Who cares? He’s had penis near or on him and he enjoyed it. Now let’s enjoy this sexy limey bastard…you can see his naked ass in many movies but see him in “Scenes of a sexual nature”, which has a gay theme, also stars Ewan McGregor and is a very good, very gay film. It was on Cinemax a few months ago…

    Who cares? He’s had dick near or on him and he enjoyed it. Now let’s enjoy this sexy limey bastard…you can see his naked ass in many movies but you guys should definitely see “Scenes of a sexual nature”, which has a gay theme, also stars Ewan McGregor and is a very good, very gay film, about cruising in a London park. It was on Cinemax a few months ago…

  • Hilarious

    He’s not even that cute. I don’t get the big deal over his sexuality.

    Didn’t even know who he was till these articles.

  • jason

    Interesting that Hardy said that “now that I’m in my thirties…I no longer have sex with men” or some such. Well, one can only assume that one had sex with men well into one’s twenties….

  • fredo777

    @Hilarious: “He’s not even that cute.”

    The guy is f***in’ pretty, so I don’t know what you’re talking about.

  • Hilarious

    @fredo777: Eh, there are guys that literally look just like him all over Virginia. Have at it.

  • L.

    @fredo777, Hilarious: Beauty, eye, beholder, and all that. I personally find him smoldering, but to each his own. I know people who hates tats, so I don’t think they’d be swooning here. But boy, the only thing that would make cuter is if he was still fooling around.

  • Bobert

    I wonder how he’s going to spin this when Mad Max promotion comes around.

  • Toby

    He makes my pants tight.

  • afrolito

    He’s cute, but I would never look at him twice on the street. I see way hotter guys on the subway ride to work everyday.

  • EdWoody

    Most of those photos are great – except for the one that looks horrifyingly like Michael Lucas.

  • alan brickman

    He’s obviously gay-friendly…so why all the hate?

  • fredo777

    @L.: I don’t care about the whole “beauty is subjective” thing. I think this is one of those guys who’s almost universally good-looking.

  • D'oh, The Magnificent

    @L.: He’s not questioning beauty as far as I can tell as much as what makes this one (one of many who you might see in A and F ads) any better? The truth is nothing. He’s a star, and that ups the attraction factor. If he weren’t famous most wouldn’t even think about his looks.

  • D'oh, The Magnificent

    @fredo777: He’s okay looking. No one thinks he’s ugly, but he’s not universal just because you like him alot.

  • Hilarious

    @D’oh, The Magnificent: Exactly I certainly never called him ugly, not sure what people are so worked up about. I just said he’s not that cute. Oh well.

  • fredo777

    @D’oh, The Magnificent: I said he’s nearly universally good-looking b/c myself + plenty of others think he’s hot, as evidenced by most of the comments here + elsewhere.

    He’s also not universally “okay looking” just b/c you find him to be. Besides that, what makes him hot goes beyond his actual physical features. It’s more than that, as I find his swagger + persona sexy. You can argue your opinion that he’s just okay-looking all night + I’ll continue to think that said opinion is bogus. But feel free.

  • L.

    @D’oh, The Magnificent: I can seriously tell you that were he not famous in the least bit, I’d still think he’s gorgeous. But again, it’s me, and I don’t pretend to speak for others.

    I’d still say, from the utterly unscientific statistical sample that is the people I know, many share my opinion.

    But, as I also said, I can see that others may not feel the same way, and that’s all right.

    If we all had the same taste, there would be one reeeeally busy gay man in the world, and millions of frustrated ones, and we don’t want that.

  • hephaestion

    Can you please first tell us who the hell Tom Hardy is?

  • Ash

    I’m into girls, but even I can’t deny that he’s mighty cute.

  • mikealexander

    I know what he means, I used to sleep with women and now I would just as soon forget it ever happened.

  • Sexy Rexy

    @afrolito: Same here afrolito. And plus, he seems like a narcissistic little twat.

  • Robert

    He was CUTE when he was younger, in Band of Brothers…but not now.

    Also, he probably got Bj’s, why do some gays think one must do ASS to be “validated” as gay? Because if that’s the case then a lot of “gays” are hetero.

  • mikey

    his best feature is his lips, i could kiss him for ages!

  • hmmm

    @james_from_the_great_city_of_cambridge: Sweet Lordy Jesus, thanks for these pics. I just saw Inception tonight and Tom Hardy is now on my radar as never before. I didn’t even know who he was till today! Mikey, you and I will have to share his beautiful set of full, kissable lips! :)
