Tom Hardy and I settle in to talk over lunch in the media room of the actor’s temporary home in Calgary, where he’s shooting The Revenant, the latest film from the Oscar-winning director Alejandro González Iñárritu, alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. The 37-year-old London native has just shown me the movie posters for this month’s Mad Max: Fury Road, which are leaning against the walls of the study upstairs. It’s been 30 years since George Miller’s last installment of the iconic postapocalyptic film series, and Hardy seems more like a Comic-Con fan than like the badass titular character, talking excitedly about stunts and explosions and choreographed car chases and action figures. Especially action figures. Hardy, it turns out, has already had two characters he’s portrayed (Bane from The Dark Knight Rises and Shinzon from 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis) immortalized in plastic and admits to geeking out on toys just as much as—if not more than—his 7-year-old son, Louis.
Tom Hardy is known for playing tough guys. Since he made his television debut in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers and starred in films such as Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, and Mad Max: Fury Road, Tom has been the object of affection for countless fans. But his biggest and most loyal fan is his rescued pup, Woodstock. Like his character, Bob, in The Drop, Tom has a tough exterior but a soft spot for animals. He met Woodstock while filming Lawless in 2011 when he saw the homeless canine wandering the streets. It was love at first sight.
Tom happily returns the love and companionship he receives from Woodstock, and he’s well-known for his genuine affection for dogs. In fact, he’s so dedicated to animal rescue that he joined PETA to share the important message of animal adoption in an adorable ad highlighting the love people find when welcoming a shelter animal into their homes—and hearts.
Are you ready to add a companion animal to your family? If so, be sure to adopt! Every time an animal is purchased from a pet store or a breeder, an animal in a shelter loses an opportunity to find a loving home. Head over to your local animal shelter, where you’re sure to find many eager animals of all breeds, shapes, sizes, and ages who’d love to become a member of your family.
London Road, which includes Olivia Colman and Tom Hardy in its ensemble cast, is an adaptation of the award-winning National Theatre production about the arrest of Steve Wright, an Ipswich man who was convicted of murdering five sex workers in 2008. Rufus Norris’s film uses the dialogue from the real townsfolk who were interviewed by author Alecky Blythe as they came to terms with the fact that a serial killer had been living in their community. London Road is released in the UK on 12 June
