Tom Hardy Lost a Bet, Now Has to Get a Leonardo DiCaprio Tattoo
Hollywood hunk Tom Hardy has learned the hard way to never wager with Leonardo DiCaprio. When Hardy doubted he would get an Oscar nod for his supporting role in the film, ‘The Revenant’, which went on to grab 12 Oscar nominations and win three, DiCaprio insisted he was wrong. In a new interview with ‘Esquire’, Hardy revealed he made a bold wager with DiCaprio: If he got nominated, he’d have to get a tattoo of DiCaprio’s choosing, and vice versa.
Not only did DiCaprio snag his first Best Actor award, but he was also correct in predicting that Hardy would be nominated for Best Supporting Actor. The result? Hardy now has to get a tattoo of a design DiCaprio drew hastily on a Post-It note. “He wrote, in this really shitty handwriting: ‘Leo knows everything,’” Hardy recounts. “Ha! I was like, ‘OK, I’ll get it done, but you have to write it properly.’”
Hardy has yet to get the tattoo, “because it sucks.” Not the most creative design on DiCaprio’s part, but hey, it could have been a lot worse.
Hardy’s new FX series, ‘Taboo’, premieres on January 10.
He’s 39. Leo’s 42.
