Tom Hardy graphically denies the gay rumors, but would rather they exist than nobody talks about him. From an interview in UK Marie Claire:%0D
This much candour makes you wonder whether Hardy ever regrets being, well, quite frank. '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.' Not even the time he said he'd enjoyed relationships with men in his twenties?%0D
'I have never put my penis in a man,' is Hardy's characteristically direct response. 'Ive 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.' He's irritated his words were taken out of context but concedes, 'one thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about'.%0D
Discussion of Hardy's sexual past sprang to life last summer when the actor, then starring in Inception, was quoted by the Daily Mail:%0D
"The 32-year-old Inception star, who is engaged to British actress Charlotte Riley, 28, and also has a two-year-old son with a former girlfriend. But asked if he'd ever had any sexual relations with other men, the broody actor said: 'As a boy? Of course I have. I'm an actor for ****'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.'"
Yes, he''s been persecuted for making a joke during an interview that took place years ago.
Tom Hardy''s Agent, assigning minions to scrub the internets as I type
UK actors are so often totally misunderstood!
But has he ever had a cock in his mouth...?

Wait, what? So he may have had cock then, but not now that he''s ''all grown up''? I''m confused.
He''s sucked and been sucked. That''s what that answer says.
What''s with all these fucking British closet cases? Tom Hardy, Luke Evans, Henry Cavill, Robbie Williams, Simon Cowell, etc. It''s fucking pathetic, especially when people like Tom Hardy and Luke Evans have given interviews in the past stating otherwise.
Brits are desperate for fame
So he''s only [italic]felt[/italic] like a faggot: he''s not actually been one. I understand.
Exactly R7, what he is trying to claim with his wording is that he has never done ANAL. Not that he is denying he has fooled around with guys.\
I still am skeptical, regardless of whether he is purposely lying there is no way he could know that with all the drugs he has done. He has mentioned waking up naked next to men and women and having no idea what happened the night before so this response seems odd.
Add Johnathan Rhys Meyers to that list, R8.
He''s a big star now with Inception and now The Dark Knight Rises coming out next year. He has to be more careful and un-gay himself.
He''s trying to say that it was just a phase...which is worse than denying it outright. It plays to a stereotype that''s quite offensive. \
No one in the world is surprised that actors swing both ways...it''s often assumed of them. The fact that they feel the need to constantly reassert their heterosexuality suggests that they''re all really fucked up about sexuality in general, because young people DO NOT CARE about this anymore.
[quote]The fact that they feel the need to constantly reassert their heterosexuality suggests that they''re all really fucked up about sexuality in general, because young people DO NOT CARE about this anymore.\
Well said, and true.
The most simple case for such people would be to just say "Yes, I''ve experimented. I''m open minded. There''s nothing wrong with it and I''ve nothing to be ashamed of. End of story".
Yes, there''s nary an [childish epithet posted by a bigoted tool] boy or butch girl being bullied in school these days!
R16- Get over yourself. There are also lots of schools that have gay/straight alliances, and most schools do diversity training for students. The fact that there are still bullies in the world shouldn''t surprise anyone...there will always be bullies. But most young people today are not obsessed with hating gay or bisexual people, it just doesn''t bother them. You might want to befriend someone under the age of 35.\
A lot of young GLBT people struggle with their sexuality because of their families and because of religion. Not every GLBT person is bullied by a stranger. It''s often families that pressure kids not to come out. The emphasis always gets placed on "bullying" because that perpetuates the notion that anti-gay messages only come from strangers. When, in fact, the pressures on kids mostly come from older members of their family.
Yes Tom... and the rest..
There is a lot of truth to R17. While there will always be bullies the BIGGEST issue with gay youth who are scared to come out is because of conservative parents and other family members. \
Generally teens are more open to telling people in their class and are terrified of telling their parents.
Oh and R16, you are probably the guy who goes from thread to thread asserting that gay entertainers MUST remain closeted because if they don't the boogeyman will get them. Stop projecting your own rationale for staying closeted onto others. The fact that you haven't dealt with your own self-loathing doesn't alter the reality that people come out every day and lead happy, fulfilling lives. If a kid in a small Catholic town can come out and survive (that would be me) then yeah, a rich entertainer can come out too. Bigots only have the power over you that you give them. If you refuse to be treated as a second class citizen, people will respond to your courage in a favorable way. I'm in college now, but I had lots of friends in High School and I was openly gay. Did anyone ever call me a name? Of course. But MOST kids didn't really care. I was a nice guy who treated everyone with kindness and respect and that's how I got treated in return. Times have changed. I know that in your imagination it's still a nightmarish world out there, but those demons are your own.
R19- exactly right.
"Did anyone ever call me a name? Of course. But MOST kids didn''t really care."%0D\
That''s nice to hear, but let''s not forget about the rest of the WORLD.
Oh, he''s just a cocksucker. Well then, never mind.
So he''s never done The Difficult Brown. But what HAS he done?
Pathetic. It didn''t even get him negative attention. There is no reason for this rant but him being a pathetic idiot.
"young people DO NOT CARE about this anymore."\
Some do and some don''t. It''s foolish to assume the issue doesn''t exist.
This is the same guy who claims to be sober since 2003. I guess we can believe him.
Well, I was going to see Warrior this week, but I guess I won''t, now.
Why do these british guys even bother with this (I''m looking at you Tom, and the other 2 cookie cutter brit "hunks" there''s been denial threads on DL about recently)?\
Everyone assumes you''re gay anyways brit''ney because you''re british. The US hollywood standards don''t matter for you, enjoy it.
Who are the other 2?\
Henry Cavill and Luke Evans?
but has he had sexusl relations with any?
is Jonathan Rhys Meyers a closet case too? He always claims he likes women and still dates them, but perhaps his suppressed homosexuality is what is causing his alcoholism and stints in rehab.
R43, years ago someone posted about a fight he and his girlfriend got into at a bar in Ireland and him leaving with a guy - words exchanged. Something that made it sound very much like he was bi. \
Does anyone remember that? It was around 5 years ago.
JRM is 34 and unmarried with no kids, so that could also be a clue
I don''t think it''s much of one, given that he''s definitely hugely screwed up. He does have a girlfriend and has beaten her up on occasion, so he could be the self-loathing type but it''s not a classic bearding.
JRM definitely has some issues. He''s been in and out of rehab about 4 times.
[quote]JRM is 34 and unmarried with no kids, so that could also be a clue\
Being unmarried and/or not having kids doesn''t mean one is gay.\
That said, I have no idea if JRM is gay/bi or straight.
I didn''t say it did, R48. Of course it doesn''t always mean that since there are lots of unmarried straight guys today.\
But sometimes it can mean something . . .
r49 ITA with that but I just don''t think having commitment problems means you''re gay. \
To me, when an adult man (say, at least 25 or even less?) hasn''t had any dating history that''s convincing, meaning dating that isn''t for PR purposes and paps, is a sign of one being gay.
If he made such a public statement, it must be true.
Will Smith, in a marriage that grows stronger every day
But, I''ll bet plenty men have had sex with him.
He can''t play Mad Max looking like that. %0D\
As far is him being gay I think he has a thing for black men.
Basically this Tom Hardy interview would never have happened if he hadn''t have got Hollywood ''cred'' by now. We just cannot have Bane being a big ol'' qween now, can we? %0D\
You''ve got to ask why he feels the need to keep re-iterating this. So who''s asking, why does it matter and why re-iterate it in a big widely read women''s magazine? I haven''t asked him for clarification on being a possible ''mo. Neither has the public at large. I don''t care. Neither does the next dude, straight or gay. %0D\
But you can sure as hell bet his Hollywood mealticket agency employers and the studios care.
No wonder I can''t get work, he stole my look.\
And BTW, I''m not gay either.
JRM is bi in behavior but in terms of relationships only involves himself w/ women. He''s got major issues that are unrelated to his sexuality. His parents divorced when he was young. He was a drunk and truant by 14. He was picked up by a gay guy who became his adoptive father. Years later that guy was convicted for drugging and abusing a 15 year old which threw JRM for a loop since he was the symbol of stability who helped JRM survive adolescence and deal w/ his addictions. IIRC he even noted that the adopted dad was one of the few people he trusted and could ount on.
LOL such a liar
he's a total bottom! I MEAN rly Tom
R7 NAILED it and R1?, unclench, dear.
(and THANK YOU R58 for that [italic]smoking [italic] photo). Those lips, that ass, that scruff AND he's got a thick, uncut UK cock.?
bumped cause of THAT PIC
Even Ewan McGregor has become all sort of seriois now. Rididiculous. Hardy will always be a big mushy luvvie till the end of days.
[quote]all these fucking British closet cases
Meanwhile George Clooney, Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Leo DiCaprio, Will Smith, Kevin Spacey, Richard Gere, Anthony Perkins, Rock Hudson and Spencer Tracey among others put up a strong showing, or non-showing, for team US.
I never had sexual relations with that man.
Blowjobs don't count.
Wiping stain from my blue shirt.
Sorry, I'm not big on bumping old threads, but...
That pic in 58, damn...is that real?
Also, I always thought he claimed to be sober too, but clearly drinking a beer in that pic from about a year ago or so??
Not really worried if he is gay/straight/bi, I think labels are lame - and of course - he is an actor and down to experience all life has to offer eh? But I just AM curious about any specific stories.
Isn't he too macho to be gay? Remember all gay guys are queens. He has tattoos and is buff and talks deep.
He's probably bisexual. In the 400 species of animals who practice homosexuality, bisexuality is actually at least as common as pure homosexuality (and in some cases even more so). So why should human males be any different? And, believe it or not, not all guys with gay urges are into anal penetration (including me, because assholes don't do anything sexual for me on either gender). I'm into all sorts of creative, alternative ways for guys to stimulate each others dicks with other body parts.
His new twitter shows his lack of intellect. www.twitter.com/tommyhardy77
damn that pic that 58 posted has disappeared but to anybody wondering what it was of, it was of Tom showing off his bubble butt (no joke)
guess his PR got the pic taken down :'(
A search for "Tom Hardy naked" easily turns it up. Duh.
I've just seen via Netflix the miniseries "Elizabeth I: The Virgin Queen," in which Tom is a main character and one of the most gorgeous sights I've ever seen!
I'm always surprised he tried to walk back these comments, he seems like the type of person who wouldn't give a damn. The price of trying to make it in the American market.
No, merely a symptom of spinelessness.
He may go on getting acting gigs but he'll never be a leading man in the US anyway. So this backstepping is a foolish and wasted effort on his part.
I've lost my respect for him.
so he's a bottom?
He doesn't have straight teeth. He will never be a movie star in USA.
Anyone notice that SO many British male celebs are closet cases?
But I thought that Brits are supposed to be so hip and cool about their gay actors - why would they feel the need to be closeted?
R80 For some reason, people seem to still fall for that tired myth, when in reality, the country is just as homophobic as America.
[quote]the country is just as homophobic as America.
I'm not sure of that's true. I think people in England just aren't as interested in 'gay' as they are in America. That's why it's not as much of an issue and it's not talked about nearly as much.
A raging misconception on Americans' part is that the UK is some utopia for queer British boys and that everyone supports it all in glorious homocolour.
Erm, well no. The newspapers that basically RUN the country, have just about learned to stop pushing the notion that gay men all have handlebar moustaches and run round in leather chaps all day long.
Gay actors are no more safe from the closet than American ones, the only fact that stops it from being an entire closet-in is that our industry is nowhere near as large and money-spinning as Hollywood.
The urgency and inning usually comes when big money from across the pond comes calling. See Luke Evans for details.
Actor, so he's probably a fluid-tard and has had gay sex before. I don't really believe his retraction. Agents tell them they have to appear straight for the audience blah blah.
And there are plenty of closeted Brits still.
Trust us, the UK is no Fruitopia.
His answer is quite specific about what he has not done. He says he's never had a cock in his ass or had his cock in an ass. I have more than a few gay friends who might say the same.
It's trying to mitigate his earlier statements about sleeping with men, that he was never "that gay". Tom Hardy has certainly had sex with men anyway you want to define it. Considering a good part of his sex life was spent completely fucked up on various drugs it isn't like he could possibly claim that he hasn't done certain acts even if he was trying to be honest.
Dude is clearly bi, no point in being ashamed about it.
r86, based on this pic of Tom, I'm pretty sure he's had a cock (or two) in his ass before.
