Tom Hardy Has Been Wearing Elton John’s Old Clothes


When I play a real person, I like to have bits of them. Since I can’t take physical body parts and sever those, I try and grab as much ‘kit’ off them as possible… Then you can sell it on eBay.”

Tom Hardy, who’ll play Elton John in the forthcoming biopic Rocketman, discussing how he gets in character with the New York Post

      He is muscular, tattooed, does NOT have a receding hairline, and has a cute face.

      Elton John did not have any of those features.

      Tom Hardy is exceptionally masculine. He oozes maleness. While he’s a good actor, I just don’t see him playing Elton John.

      A guy can ooze maleness but become a effeminate queen on the screen. That is called “acting”. But muscles, hairlines, cute faces, cannot be so easily changed.

      Well, hairlines can.

      If Ben Whishaw gained a few pounds, he would be perfect for the part. It would be easy, he could do like De Niro did in Raging Bull.

      I love me some Tom Hardy but I lol’d at you people thinking he’s masculine. Boyfriend is not only slightly effeminate but has been with men in the past(probably still does but retracted some statements “for his son”).

      Try watching him when he’s not acting. He turns into a shy puddle of cuteness. It’s too bad he’s afraid to come out for the sake of his career. He pinged day 1 despite trying to make himself as fugly as possibly to come off as butch(which I guess is working since so many of you think he is).

      So many gay actors gravitate to gay roles with poor excuses for no real reason other than to express their true selves on screen.

      They only seem to come out when their career falls off and they want to land a book deal…

      Watching Elton be giddy this guy is playing Elton in the Elton bio-pic is like watching PeeWee Herman giggle in his movie within a movie that James Brolin was playing him.

      Well of course they can! It’s called make-up and hair styling. Movie magic.

      @sejjo: Even an enormous amount of muscle?

      the minute he backtracked on having past gay encounters, he should have been banned from playing gay roles!

      Surely they could have gotten someone more appropriate for this role, no? Elton was a little wiry thing back in the day, nothing at all like this guy. The tattoos alone make him wrong for the part.
