The performer not only has an excellent resume, but he continues to astound fans with his subtle acting, which he can achieve without even using language! But there’s a lot about the star that fans might not know!
8 Things You Didn’t Know About Tom Hardy
1. Expelled From A School Twice
As a child growing up in London, England, Hardy became involved in crime, first getting into trouble at school and then on the streets. He was expelled from school twice, the first for theft and the second for repeated bad behavior. 
2. He Was An Alcohol Addict
Tom suffered from alcohol and crack cocaine addiction as a young man and has now been sober for more than a decade. He has defined himself as a “petite little bourgeois child from London,” referring to the private school from which he was expelled. 
3. Replacement Of Michaele Fassbender
In 2010, Hardy took over Fassbender’s role as British operative “Tricky” Ricky Tarr in Tomas Alfredson’s 2011 remake of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, even though their careers have taken separate directions. 
4. Idolizes Gary Oldman
Hardy would frequently talk about Gary Oldman and the modeling competition I mentioned earlier. Hardy had the opportunity to co-star with Oldman in the Oscar-nominated film Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy that same year. 
5. Doesn’t Mind Shutting Down People
Even if he occasionally displays signs of being a fun-loving softy, Hardy has a unique edge, especially if he is asked a question about his personal life that he feels is inappropriate.
6. Almost Mr. Darcy
7. Loves Flaunting His Muscular Body
Hardy has a ripped figure, so it’s no surprise he likes to flaunt it, and crew members on his BBC series Taboo frequently saw him in his birthday suit. 
8. An Avid Dog Lover
The actor’s passion for dogs is well known, but after an appearance on Paul O’Grady’s For the Love of Dogs, fans discovered it extended far beyond pet ownership. During the event, Tom showed the host around a nearby animal rescue center where he usually visits to embrace the dogs.
