Tom Hardy Slammed For His Unprofessional, Rude & Arrogant Atittude

According to a movie critic Drew McWeeny, Tom Hardy was a total mess during the Revenant press junket. His tweets in quotes are posted below:

"I'll say it: Tom Hardy should stop doing junkets. He's terrible at them, and he makes it impossible for anyone to do their jobs. Fuck him."

"Tom Hardy could be set to play me in a movie, and I still wouldn't interview him about it. Besides, his answers would all be, "Ghbbbbygy."

"I've seen Tom Hardy make publicists cry. He chose to take a nap during my scheduled time in Toronto. Today's REVENANT junket was a joke."

"I get it, dude. Being a movie star is a burden. Thanks for making my job impossible because you're such a delicate fucking flower." "No one HAS to do press or give interviews. But if you're going to, don't be a piece of shit about it. Thanks."

"He's got nothing I want. And he did this to me twice this year. Fuck that guy. It's not just me, either. He does this on-set. He does this all the time. I like some of his work. I don't care for him. And, yeah, I considered not saying anything. But my time is worth something, and Tom Hardy is just an actor. No more tip-toeing."

"Punchy is one thing. Forcing people to wait four hours past their time and then not doing the interview? You know who was lovely today? Domnhall Gleeson. You know who else was? Will Poulter."

Any more tea on Tom Hardy being a POS? Maybe his recent marriage or closeting/past drug issues finally resurfaced?

I think it was good the reporter gave multiple specific examples. If he'd done one clever but vague tweet people would think he was a jealous bitch using snark for attention.

I reading somewhere that how Hardy handled press was holding him back from A list American stardom. The article said it was because he wasn't comfortable promoting himself the way Americans do. It made it sound like a cultural thing and gave him an air of class. He comes of as just rude in those tweets.

On my local news here in LA, they showed a little bit of the anchor's time at the junket with Leo and Tom. Leo was dull but professional. He was toeing the line in terms of selling the movie (tough location, tough conditions, but great visionary director, etc.) and Tom just came off like a smart ass. It didn't bother me, but I can see how people would get annoyed at him. The real offense here is that Tom looked like he hadn't showered in weeks. Yuck.

I love Tom Hardy as an actor -- his Best Actor win for "Locke" from the LA Film Critics last year was the best selection during that entire awards season, he was absolutely phenomenal in the film -- and, yes, I find him sexually appealing (love those cocksucking lips, and knowing that they have wrapped themselves around cocks in the past is a joy to think of), but he really needs to drop the attitude. He should realize that you can be immensely talented and be a nice person, too.

R30, I would say that the way to tell the difference between someone who is uncomfortable with interviews and someone who is a straight-up asshole, is to look at the degree of professionalism they display. A person who's uncomfortable with interviews would understand that even though he hates it it's part of his job, and can't be avoided if he wants to hit the big time, while a total asshole would go out of his way to make everyone around him even more unhappy than he is, regardless of the cost to his career.

Sadly, it seems like Tom Hardy is not only a total asshole, he's too dumb to understand what someone with his level of success can and cannot get away with. Which is a pity, as he really is a lovely sexy screen presence, but if nobody is willing to work with him then we won't see much of him from now on.

Why do they have junkets? To convince the writers to write nice reviews about what are mostly shitty movies. And it's a part of his job.

Ok, the journo's colleagues probably think he was stupid for blurting this out, but it seems he was tired and stressed in the run up to Christmas and I think he will get a pass; it isn't as though his colleagues don't know the truth and maybe Charlize Theron will hire him as her press agent if he gets fired.

Meeting press is part of the job for the stars. It's all PR for the film, and obviously smart for the actors as well to keep the journos happy. It's a cunt move to make bunch of professionals wait for you for hours and then still end up blowing some of them off. I've actually liked Hardy a lot and didn't want to believe the stories about him being a complete pain in the ass during the filming of Mad Max. It's unfortunately getting obvious the stories were true. I hope Hardy takes a long look at his behavior and makes changes if he can. I doubt he's a complete cunt as person but if he's mentally ill the change might be impossible.

Shia is young enough to turn it around. Surprisingly there is a lot of goodwill towards him in the industry. And his directors and co-stars think he's talented, if somewhat off-the-rails. Hollywood loves a comeback. Hardy was never on a superstar trajectory like Shia, so in that sense I agree that there's scarce basis for comparison.

R104, I'm sorry but bringing up LaBoeuf as some kind of better alternative to Hardy tells that you must be a Shia LaBoeuf fan who's trying her hardest to make LaBoeuf look good. I have a feeling I'm not alone thinking that LaBoeuf is on the verge of becoming a new Lindsay Lohan. People know him mostly from his violent outbursts and art projects nowadays. Art projects = ok, crazy and violent behavior = not ok for the public, or Hollywood. And I say this as someone who liked LaBoeuf in Transformers a lot. He seems to be throwing his Hollywood career away. At least Hardy seems to have hunger for good roles even if he is a cunt.

by Anonymousreply 106December 22, 2015 6:40 PM

I guess he is kind of boring, and probably less or maybe much less troubled than Shia Laboeuf, which is one reason why he will not become a big star, but most big stars were and are American, hardly any have been foreigners, even less so in recent times; bisexual men, probably especially gay-bis, are often angry, restless, stressed and lonely though. European actors aren't good with the star thing.

Plus, he isn't chasing Hollywood stardom, just quality work. He doesn't have to do TV yet he returned to film season 3 of Peaky Blinders and he's filming Taboo a series for the BBC.

"I think it was author Camille Paglia who described Leo Di Caprio as resembling a 13 year old lesbian."

For once she has a point. He has no sex appeal at all. To this day I can't believe anyone would cast him as Howard Hughes, much less give him an Oscar nomination for that off-base performance. Tommy Lee Jones was at his hottest when he played Hughes in a TV film, and makes DiCaprio's performance all the more laughable.

Hardy is a B-lister trying to climb onto the A-list, but he seems to think he can get away with behaving like an A-list dick like Bruce Willis. Sure, Willis got away with being a massive asshole for years, but during those years he was such a money-spinner that if he'd had human-flesh lunches put into his contract, the suits would have roasted their own children and served them up.

Hardy is a talent, but not a box-office draw, and while box-office draws are rare to extinct, talented actors are common enough that he can always be replaced by someone who'll behave himself. He doesn't even have the excuse of youth, which seems to have gained LaBeouf some goodwill.

Tom Hardy could be replace by Logan Marshall Green and no one would even notice.

Tom responded to the critic! Here is his letter:

'Thankyou for your email offering to retract your misdirected anger. I apologise for any part of you having to wait for an interview and then not get one. The truth is we (as I was paired for all interviews that day) were unaware that ANYBODY was waiting. Or even went without a TV interview. Someone somewhere must have thought putting it on me was a lot easier than losing their journalist relations for the ongoing junkets and multiple movies that are pending. I wish I would have napped to be honest. One note to make is that per Fox, they said they “never actually told (you) that the interview was cancelled, simply that they were running behind schedule.” They also said that “Drew chose not to wait and left. Had he stayed, he would have gotten his interview as planned.” Fuck.. Plot thickens … Who knows what to trust my friend, but I do know the cancellation was definitely not made by myself. Resisting the urge to dare you to say what you “rant tweeted” so publicly, to my face next time we meet, which I doubt you have the balls to do; I want to apologise regardless on behalf of those that misled the both of us. That isn’t cool. At all. Neither were your tweets. But that’s by the by.

I appreciate your apology of sorts in your emails to and fro which I am happy to openly post. Also as I hope you understand now and which you’ve made very clear in our emails back and forth, your legitimate frustration lies with those who organised the junket; who fed you and I misinformation; not me.

Again apologies for the clusterfk. And it’s knock on effect to your personal life. I appreciate it is a busy time of year for you and your time shouldn’t have been wasted. I never had any intention of causing you any inconveniences at all.

Best regards and thanks for calling me an asshole a lot Tommy xxx '

The body may be hot, but that face is beyond busted, imo.

Hardy doesn't have any social media accounts so he gives content to the moderator of a fan site Tom Hardy.org.

"Tom has said in a Details article , "I used to have a lot of hang-ups—legitimate hang-ups—about my parents. ... A lot of stuff I had to forgive." so that hints at something. But I also know that not everyone who has had fraught relationships with their parents become assholes or drug addicts. Maybe he's just an entitled jerk."

Yep! he went to fee paying school. They probably didn't give him enough tuck money.

R121 - I remember a while back Richie was called a liar when he said he was expelled from school when they found his drug stash. That one I can confirm, since I once had a chat with the lovely gentleman who was his housemaster at the time. It doesn't make him any less posh though.

I don't blame the guy for publicly calling out Hardy. I wish it would happen more often because you know Hardy's not the only celebrity acting like that.

by Anonymousreply 124December 23, 2015 10:40 AM

So not much of an apology there then.

by Anonymousreply 125December 23, 2015 5:04 PM

Someone pointed out elsewhere that Tom and Leo were doing joint interviews (as Tom mentions in the letter) yet McWeeny didn't call out Leo. He's not stupid. I wish McWeeny hadn't apologized to him especially considering Hardy's response.

by Anonymousreply 126December 23, 2015 6:15 PM

I wish he hadn't either. That response from Hardy was a master class in passive-aggressive.

It's interesting that people agree the last film Hardy behaved himself on was The Dark Knight Rises. Also the last film he worked on with his old trainer, P-nut. I think that guy kept him in line and was actually bold enough to say no. And of course Hardy got rid of him.

by Anonymousreply 127December 23, 2015 6:19 PM

I guess he had to make a show of some sort of apology, but how many sites are picking it up? The damage is done and Hardy deserves it.

How crazy do you think Hardy will get before Hollywood says enough?

Coke Chick, a Hollywood insider who just had a gossip thread of her own, said this about Hardy:

"Tom Hardy definitely goes both ways. I know of a 4 way he was involved in where he bottomed at one point. Or maybe he's just into ass play."

Of course Hardy's been open about his bisexuality before until he got back into the closet so it's not really news but good to hear anyway.

by Anonymousreply 131December 24, 2015 1:58 AM

is he gay?

by Anonymousreply 132December 24, 2015 2:04 AM

R132, he's on his second het marriage and has two kids. I'd say he's bi. Not sure he wants to identify as one nowadays in public, though.

by Anonymousreply 133December 24, 2015 1:48 PM

McWeeny's saying Tom never e-mailed him. So either Tom is a liar or that fansite pulled this out of their ass.

I'm sorry, but coke chick was full of shit. I didn't say so on the thread because why spoil everyone's fun? But she was. Still, I absolutely believe Tom is bi and it wasn't just some fooling around he did as a teenager.

There were plenty of people bitching about her already. The thing is how would you know she's full of shit? She might very well be but no one here is verified so it's all just anonymous gossip. At least her thread was good fun.

[quote]Still, I absolutely believe Tom is bi and it wasn't just some fooling around he did as a teenager.

He went on crack binge while in L.A to meet with John Woo about a role in Bulletproof Monk (which was released in 2003) and woke up in bed with a naked man. This wasn't just teenage action.

by Anonymousreply 136December 25, 2015 12:36 AM

R136, Hardy seems like a guy who's been bi from the start. I seriously doubt he needs crack to be able to have a cock in his mouth or butt. Anything's of course possible but when I think of a guy like Hardy as a horny young man in a bloody drama school I don't see a person who's withholding his natural urges and only lets them out later in his life while high. I've always thought he was trying to come out as a bi in that interview but the industry wouldn't let him.

[quote] I'm sorry but bringing up LaBoeuf as some kind of better alternative to Hardy tells that you must be a Shia LaBoeuf fan who's trying her hardest to make LaBoeuf look good.

I'm a man, not a 'her.' I think LeBouf and Hardy are talented actors. And I think they're the same 'type' of actor and appear to share personality traits. Hardy probably self-destructed and partially reassembled himself before he was well-known as an actor. Unfortunately, LeBouf was a child star so it's happening in public and fueled by his celebrity. I hope that LeBouf can get himself together. I don't think Hardy's reputation can be rehabilitated at this point. He will always be a fine actor but his viability as a star has peaked.

[quote] I don't blame him for not enjoying having to pimp himself out to the infotainment industry. He's an actor, not a reality star. Interviews and red carpets and Comicon appearances are lazy forms of publicity and I think they backfire because they only cater to obsessive fans--the rest of the public gets sick of seeing them.

AGAIN, it's part of the job. And if he doesn't like it he can always go down to the local community theater and act all he wants. But NO. He wants to earn millions of dollars for each of his roles. These types of interviews are a part of that. It's tough shit for him if he doesn't like it. He may also want to try dinner theater roles that pay a few hundred dollars a week. No junkets included. Tom would do well to read a little bit about Wes Bentley. He's going down that same road
