Tom Hardy, the cute British fella from Inception, says “of course” he’s had sex with other guys. Quick everybody, swoon!
Having played gay in Guy Ritchie’s hit Rock’n’Rolla (as Handsome Bob), Hardy says he screwed around with men “as a boy.” After all, “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. … A lot of people say I seem masculine, but I don’t feel it. I feel intrinsically feminine. I’d love to be one of the boys but I always felt a bit on the outside. Maybe my masculine qualities come from overcompensating because I’m not one of the boys.”
Hardy is also the star of Bronson, where he got beefy and naked playing brutally violent criminal Charles Bronson.
Hey, score one for an actor type being open, honest, and nonchalant about his sexuality. James Franco, them be comin’ for youz!
