Tom Hardy Has Dated Men, But Won’t Bottom

A year ago, actor Tom Hardy told the Daily Mail that he has had “sexual relations” with gay men. One week later, “a source close to the rising star” said his words were taken out of context. One month later, Hardy clairified that he’d never “done it all.”

Now he’d like to clarify that, unlike Sinead O’Connor, he won’t do anal.

Hardy’s original admission went like this:

“Of course I have [had sexual relations with other men]. I’m an actor for fuck’s sake. ‘I’ve played with everything and everyone. I love the form and the physicality, but now that I’m in my thirties, it doesn’t do it for me.

I’m done experimenting but there’s plenty of stuff in a relationship with another man, especially gay men, that I need in my life. A lot of gay men get my thing for shoes. I have definite feminine qualities and a lot of gay men are incredibly masculine.'”

And now?

“I don’t regret anything I’ve ever said It’s just a shame things are misconstrued and I don’t get the opportunity to explain…

I have never put my penis in a man… I’ve never had a cock in my arse, and I have no fucking desire for it. If that’s what you like, cool. But it doesn’t do it for me.”

When you’re a rising star, it’s very important to clarify whether or not you’ll do anal. It matters a great deal to casting directors.

      Hollywood IS homophobic, that’s why we rarely see movies of any real worth. Hollywood has major issues. I got an awesome job just out of college working at a studio in script development. I had no idea what Hollywood culture was like. It didn’t take long before my female boss started calling men she didn’t like faggots and the office assistant and her would accuse men here and there of being faggots (the ultimate scarlet letter). She also hated Asians, and people frequently use the word nigger. I didn’t stay in Hollywood for a full year. Nothing was worth being around all that hate, bigotry, and stupidity. It’s a disgusting environment…I just wish everyone who has that favorite movie would hear the conversations of those behind the making of said movie. No one would ever support Hollywood if they knew the truth.

      A while back, there was a Craigslist ad for talent to star in Hustler’s infamous “Who’s Nailin’ Paylin?” production.


      The ad specified the salary, the position (doggy style) and that “some anal may be required.”

      On another note, there are PLENTY of real life MMA fighters who DO like anal:



      Hope that helps.

      How is he homophobic? He’s said that he’s experimented with guys but not done anal. Whoopee. Where did he express hatred or fear? Nowhere.

      Of course, we do know that there is a “Jason” who posts here who hates women with an insanely psychotic passion that certainly is creepy.

      What’s so wrong with what he said? He didn’t retract what he said, he never said he fucked or was fucked by a guy. Gays act as if anal is the end all be all. I was openly gay for two years and had lots of great hot sweaty sex with men without any anal whatsoever, top or bottom. And I’ve noticed as my partner of 12 years and I go forward, we fuck each other less and less (We still do it, but not nearly as much a we used to). I simply enjoy lots of other sexual activities more. And over the years I’ve fooled around with lots of “straight” or “bi” guys that enjoyed sex with a man, but never wanted or tried to fuck. If Tom Hardy had same-sex relations with another male, that doesn’t instantly mean that anal sex took place. I don’t see why that’s so hard to believe.

      This is the part that gets me that he said.I get that he doesnt want a dick in his ass but the way he responded was hateful and angry no question about it. Then again maybe he was angry because as he said he feels like what he said was misconstrued.I have no idea but it just did not come across the right way the way he responded .

      Not to mention this is the typical pr response from people who are supposedly gay friendly: if thats what you like cool. That does NOT mean he is gay friendly nor a gay supporter for that matter.We really should not be this gullible there are plenty of celebs out there who PRETEND to be gay friendly when actually they are no where near it.

      What’s wrong with what he [Tom Hardy] said?

      NOTHING, as you point out.

      I’ll take it even further, and say that Hardy’s comments are, actually, quite amazing. Wouldn’t it be a more wonderful and friendly world if all straight guys were as comfortable in their own sexuality as Hardy is that they need not falsely boost their masculinity by bashing the gays?

      @Mike in Asheville: Did you not read the interview? Sure, he doesn’t bash gays but he describes gay sex in the grossest way possible and then very irritably states he “has no fucking desire” for it. Doesn’t sound like someone who is the pinnacle of gay-friendliness.

      Furthermore, the reason he described gay sex in the most grossed out possible way is to deflect attention away from HIS OWN ADMISSION of having relations with a man. There are multiple ways he could have answered this that would have been just as direct yet respectful to his phantom gay friends, but the method in which he chose to answer makes him seem like yet another semi-openly-closeted gay man tormented by something as menial as being attracted to the same gender.

      I too, Adam, had high hopes for this one. Lame…

      @Mike in Asheville:

      There is also a little something called TACT though which apparently Tom lacks that’s the point.

      Ive seen enough homophobes who make the EXACT SAME statements as he did especially the I dont want a dick in my ass comment.That is literally one of the oldest homophobic comments ive heard for years from celebs singers and online.It’s asinine and idiotic.

      Yes I give him credit for standing by what he said and not making excuses for it.But still the way he responded was not respectful nor tactful.He didnt even have to go as far as he did saying he never had a dick in his ass and I have no fucking desire for it either.

      He could have simply been as eloquent as many male celebs have been such as James Franco for example.He didnt have to take the macho fraternity brother approach and make such an asinine and rude statement such as the one he made.Thats just my opinion though.Everyone has one.

    • Interesting

      The implication of what is saying is similar to what you find in many Macho based cultures. It says that so long as you do not engage in anal then sex with men is not gay or bi. Some cultures go further. I remember an article on here, and I remember also talking to some Muslim guys about this- that if they fuck a guy- as in penetrating him – then its not gay because they are not acting as a bottom.

      In other words, its the kind of fine splitting of hairs that someone trying to make themselves “no” something do. This is not specific to Islam or even Macho cultures. You have Christian women who will say they have not had sex with their boyfriend because there was no vaginal penetration. I first hear that back in college where a girl told us that the sounds of sex coming from her room wasn’t sex because it was just oral. That’s not sex. IN short- its a lot of unhealthy denial.

      You don’t need to know the specifics of how each other have sex to admit that we are indeed having sex with men.

      Thank you..I thought the same thing. All he said was he never engaged in any type of anal penetration, how on earth is that anti-gay or homophobic?? I’m really starting to feel that gays are becoming guilty of the same sort of over reaction and phony outrage once reserved for the conservative christian right. So now the only way a confession of past gay encounters is valid is if anal sex took place?? Even I’m getting tired of whiney fags.

      He’s a middle class boy who tries a bit too hard to seem edgy and street-wise most of the time.
      I think he tends to over-do the drugs and sex stories in order to come across as a reformed bad boy.
      Makes a nice story but it’s obviously backfired a bit with the gay stuff, so in typically faux bolshy fashion he tries to deny it in as graphic a way as possible. Yawn.

      i too prefer not to use the servants entrance (putting membership card in the post now), unfortunately the way he expressed it is open to negative interpretation.

      and “i’ve never put my penis in a man” leaves a rather limited menu of options — must mean he’s a heroically selfless giver of oral pleasure

      People like you are part of the problem with this community.How exactly is it mature to call people whiny fags just because they think someone IS homophobic or possibly could be? Have YOU ever heard this guy say anything about gays that wasnt stereotypical? Didn’t think so.People like you really need to understand things better too there is such a thing called CONTEXT and the way in which it said DOES MATTER sorry if thats a problem for you.Logic and common sense would tell you that though just saying.

      Ditto also im quite frankly tired of people like you who seem to act like you know it all so that makes you think you have incentive to act like a pompous smartaleck.I guess your opinion is all that matters and COUNTS correct? Im sure I am.

      Wait! How did he describe gay sex in the “grossest way possible”? I hardly think that saying his saying “penis” or “cock” or “arse” qualifies as “gross.” Also, since you didn’t hear the conversation, you have no idea whether or not he was in a cheerful or joking mood.

      I find this sturm und drang silly. The guy had some flings in his youth. He was bicurious and found himself happy with a woman became his wife. Big deal. Move on.

      @jamie: In case you didn’t learn in whatever remedial elementary you spend 24 years at, words have tone. The tone of what he said is clear and the irritability and disgust it exhibits is what’s causing the waves here.

      As for his description, unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll know that straight society’s main problem with gay male sex is the ‘ick’ factor – two guys shoving their cocks “up there.” So when he describes that particular practice, in graphic detail, in an otherwise straight magazine, while speaking to straight people, he’s obviously trying to deflect attention away from him by vehemently stating he doesn’t engage in the act that most people find to be the grossest, most disgusting practice of being a gay man.

      Common sense, logic and critical thinking. Use it for once.

      @Mike in Asheville:

      He basically said he wouldn’t mind being in a romantic relationship with a guy, and that he’s done plenty of non-anal things with guys. That’s called Bi, not a “straight guy comfortable in his sexuality”.

      @Michael: Oh, they are all gay or bi/bicurious. If they were straight guys so desperate for money, they’d, you know, go into straight porn… or better yet, find any sort of other regular/menial work. The thing is, if your gay or bi and need money, It just pays more in porn to say your straight when your a hot guy with a big dick. That’s how gay porn works. Unless you were already openly gay before making porn, your default is to say your straight to get more money. It’s disgusting and should be stopped, but it wont as long as queerty and LGBT-mass media keep buying into it.

      But make no mistake, Hollywood IS homophobic. You can’t be a very tolerant industry if you’re not even fucking willing to cast actual (openly) LGBT actors in LGBT roles. And yet, noone is willing to stand up to this bullshit- instead praising the actors and industry for it, when there’s plenty of openly LGBT actors out their looking for work, or ones to scared to come out of the closet who could do it.

      OMG I am beyond appreciative and thrilled to see people actually UNDERSTAND it finally.

      Look I dont think everyone is homophobic that would be mental if I did.But just as Jamie said its the TONE in which a person says these things that gets me.Things can be taken out of context I understand that but the context in which someone says it matters.Ive noticed some people here claim that because you get an inkling or even a clue as to if a person is homophobic or not that it makes us whiny? My question is how does that make sense? I can read people pretty well and ive always been able to pick up on things there are some celebs out there who many gays love but I dont because I do not trust them.I mean part of the problem is some of us automatically assume that a person is gay friendly just because they claim they have been with another guy or whatever it is they claim.That’s the thing though a person can easily say whatever they want to say as long as the other person believes it then that is all that matters to them. Ive even gone so far as to see online if any of these people say anything that is remotely gay friendly or compassionate and understanding…. nope its a rarity if I ever find anything about half the actors in hollywood much less singers etc…. Just because someone is good looking or claims they have gay friends does NOT automatically mean they are not homophobic or for that matter gay friendly.

      The politicians like Rick Santorum are an example of that truth.

      My bad I meant to say what YOU said about tone not Jamie damn fast typing .

      Exactly there are some supposedly gay friendly folk out there that the LGBT community supports who have said crap like Tom has as well.

      I never will understand that though.I mean why would someone support much less think someone is gay friendly when they use derogatory insulting and hateful comments like Tom Hardy has used?The thing I can’t stand are how cowardly these people are if you have a problem with just admit it flat out.Nothing worse then a liar … well except a homophobe but that ones a given.

      A person with class and refinement who was actually GAY FRIENDLY and intelligent would have responded with class and respect for the LGBT community.He didn’t though however and then you get jumped all over for simply disagreeing with other people about whether he is homophobic or not.I think he is no question or doubt in my mind about it.Apparently though it means you are automatically a whiny gay just because you perceive someone to be homophobic you learn something new everyday.

      It reminds me of certain celebs like Alec Baldwin hes supposedly gay friendly yet he got off on calling someone a rude queen and he used it intentionally in a derogatory way.I was nice to him on twitter and confronted him about it as respectfully as I possibly could last week.He never responded to what I wrote and ignored it basically. It would not surprise me either if he wasnt as gay friendly as people perceive him to be.I mean look at the way he treated his own daughter years ago that became such a huge controversy.

      We just need to be careful who we trust in this community we need to know whether a person is with us or against us.Otherwise thats the same thing as supporting and liking someone who would rather crap on us and our rights then actually care about us and our rights as human beings.

Instead of presenting a reasoned argument, you rely on ad hominem attacks! Brilliant! Your arguing skills were obviously honed in the finest prep school and university. Who needs the Socratic method when a pithy, cliched insult will do?


      The guy admits to having had same sex flings when he was younger but not having anal because it wasn’t his thing. Big deal. There are plenty of straight men who won’t perform oral sex on their girlfriends. As for the ick factor about anal sex, so what! Not all gays are into it. Frankly, who wants deal with all that Santorum? I hear that it’s hell to get out of the sheets! That said, lots of sex acts are repulsive to lots of people. Take the missionary position. Having to look into the face of one’s partner? It’s just barbaric! Why would want to look at the twisted facial contortions of another?

      I don’t see any reason for losing sleep about what some actor says about his sex life or his lack of adventure. Hardy is British. He comes from a different culture.

      Understandable that some people do not like certain things.That is just human nature I agree with that .But the context is the problem with this whole thing otherwise why is it that men who happen to be actors and happen to be gay friendly are very polite about it ?

      The way Tom responded was as if he was sickened repulsed and disgusted by that image.The problem with that though is within homophobic culture thats exactly how most of these macho straight guys would react also.

      I applaud the dude for not taking back what he said and being comfortable enough to not bash us for being what we are.But it still stands to reason that he could have easily responded in a less abrasive manner then he did.What he responded with was insulting and derogatory no matter how someone attempts to justify it.

      I don’t understand why he just didnt say anything about it at all and just go on about his business in the first place.

      I also have to disagree there have been other people who have claimed to be gay and slept with men but yet years later they pretend like they didnt say it or deny it profusely.

      I remember a specific actor I believe from Britain who denies he’s gay to this day yet years ago he claimed he WAS gay in an interview.Maybe someone can refresh my memory it was in Queerty not long ago.

      Also I am not here to insult anyones intelligence or talk to them just because I may not agree with their opinion.We can find ways to still be respectful to one another despite whether we agree or do not agree with one another period.

      Disappointing, to the say the least. I thought highly of him when he made that comment about having had relations with men. I thought “Finally!. An actor bold and secure enough to be honest about his sexual past with men. If we had more actors like Hardy, it could open up the doors for men, gay, bi or straight, to happily discuss any relations they’ve had with other men without feeling like they were somehow tainted. Without it affecting their careers in any way.” But then he had to jack-ass it up with this comment. Now that Christopher Nolan is helping him gain some recognition, all of a sudden the idea of gay sex repulses him and the whole world has to know! What a surprise. Yet another actor going back in the closet as soon as the A-list beckons. Disgraceful.

      @Aaron: No, Aaron, he said he used to into experimenting. Now that he’s in his 30s, he has moved beyond experimenting with men. That means he is into women, ie, straight.

      Hardy’s now done with experimenting with guys/into women, is the very typical response found in the Kinsey Report — many males have experimented with other males in their youth, but, as they mature, remain attracted to women only. Certainly the Kinsey Report is not the be-all but it remains the most far-reaching report on male sexuality (and female sexuality in Volume 2).

And for the many many many gay men into anal sex, we use douches to wash up very nicely so we can enjoy ourselves. You two are repulsive in both your characterizing those of us who enjoy safe CLEAN anal sex, and are way too into describing dirty sex to not be somehow in some fucked-up way fascinated by it.

      Just Google any off color sex act/fetish [scat, piss, farm animals, bondage, slavery, etc.] and you will find as many, if not more, heterosexual website than gay/lesbian ones.

      @Someone: “• The Gay Report, published by homosexual researchers Jay and Young in 1979, revealed that 73 percent of homosexuals surveyed had at some time had sex with boys 16 to 19 years of age or younger.5 (5. K. Jay and A. Young, The Gay Report (New York: Summit Books, 1979), p. 275. )”

      16 to 19 = “boys”?? Please.

      The rest of your quotes are either from religious kooks like Reisman or Freund who actually did a lot to decriminalise homosexuality. His figures are hardly surprising given the fact the age of consent was much higher for gay people, so anyone engaging in sex with young men were deemed paedophiles.
      Why not put a chunk of your post into Google – the results are strictly limited to crazy religio-fascist forums masturbating over themselves at all these terrible gays and what we get up to. Much as you are here. :(

      Pedophiles pray on children gay americans do not do that and even if there were some who did that the fact that you are stupid enough to attempt to paint EVERYONE who is gay with that same brush once again proves your own bias dipshit . :)

      Ever watched TO CATCH A PREDATOR btw dumbfuck? Didn’t think so you never see any gay men on that show but you sure as fuck definitely see STRAIGHT men on there constantly.

      Nice try with your AGENDA homophobe but you have failed miserably people like you ALWAYS attempt to use bigotry and ignorance in order to prove some kind of lame illogical point about us bad ole gays. Like I said grow a brain moron you definitely do not have one.

      LOL wow you really are a fucking moron .Do you not notice that YOU are the one bringing up poop and shit like that? None of us have gee makes ya wonder you must be into scat thats obvious since you keep BRINGING IT UP DUH.:)I have no interest in shit nor do I have any interest in knowing how STRAIGHT you are or claim you are.Hilarious thing is half the gay community finds people like you disgusting not the other way around.Im not into pussy not my thing Im definitely TALKING to a pussy though :)

      @Me!: “Homosexuals claim that “heterosexuals” molest most
      children but statistics show that homosexuals molest at far
      higher rates than do heterosexuals.”

      The statistics you quote yourself contradict what you’re trying to prove:

      “Drs. Freund and Heasman of the Clark Institute of Psychiatry in Toronto reviewed two studies
      on child molesters and calculated that 34% and 32% of the sex offenders were homosexual. In
      cases these doctors had handled, 36% of the molesters were homosexuals. (Freund, K.
      “Pedophilia and Heterosexuality vs. Homosexuality,” Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy, 1984;

      Surely even you understand that 34% isn’t a majority???
      I wonder how many sex offenders are religious. Do you suppose the high level of religious paedos means that religious people are the most likely group to molest children?
      Anyway, it seems that all the homophobic crap that’s been posted on here today is all from the same person using multiple names. How fucking sad is that???
      Hope you sort yourself out, whoever you are. :)

      @We!: Professor Henry Adams at the University of Georgia conducted a major study in the 1990s, where he took several groups of men who identified as heterosexual and expressed hostility to gays, and wired them up so the blood flow to their penises could be monitored. He then showed them gay porn — and some 80 percent became aroused. He concluded that since “most homophobes demonstrate significant sexual arousal to homosexual erotic stimuli”, anti-gay hatred is probably “a form of latent homosexuality.”

      @Lefty: In the experiment, psychologists at Northwestern University and the Center for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto used advertisements in gay and alternative newspapers to recruit 101 young adult men. Thirty-three of the men identified themselves as bisexual, 30 as straight and 38 as homosexual.

      The researchers asked the men about their sexual desires and rated them on a scale from 0 to 6 on sexual orientation, with 0 to 1 indicating heterosexuality, and 5 to 6 indicating homosexuality. Bisexuality was measured by scores in the middle range.

      Seated alone in a laboratory room, the men then watched a series of erotic movies, some involving only women, others involving only men.

      Using a sensor to monitor sexual arousal, the researchers found what they expected: gay men showed arousal to images of men and little arousal to images of women, and heterosexual men showed arousal to women but not to men.

And if they were fine with both oral and anal, then it kissing that made you a faggot. It worked for them; I wish it had worked for the rest of the world’s hot young guys . . . though I’m too old for it make any difference to me now.

      With all due respect to the people calling this man homophobic, he only said he doesn’t enjoy anal sex. Stephen Fry said the same thing in his documentary “Out There” when he spoke to a Ugandan Pastor, preferring “mutual masturbation”. The language Hardy uses is just his London laddish dialect. He’s still admitted to having some relationships with other men which is more than can be said of many other actors who are so in the closet they’ve fallen into a kind of media blackout Twilight Zone. I’d rather Hardy be up front about his attitudes like this, more importantly his tastes, than pretend anything else is the case. And, as a closeted bisexual myself, I can completely understand why he wants to clear up previous misunderstandings. As stated by psychologists and sociologists alike, you fall onto a spectrum.

Things that they are reading and are so easy to manipulate in your brain to sound a thousand different ways. Just the idea that he said anything positive at all is interesting to me. So when he was pushed to elaborate (and this is just conjecture because all we are seeing is a few lines from an interview) he just said what he wasn’t into. I know plenty of gay guys that aren’t into anal. I have never suggested to them that they should turn in their Homo Club Cards! LOL Boys get over yourselves. You are whiney!!! Haven’t we literally spent decades for people to do what they want to do with their bodies and make their own decisions?? And then you take someone to task because they “don’t go all the way”?!??!
