Tom Hardy Lost a Bet to Leonardo DiCaprio & Has to Get an Ugly Tattoo
Leo even designed the ugly tattoo for Tom.
Both Hardy and DiCaprio starred in the 2015 drama The Revenant. It was clear from the get-go that DiCaprio would not only secure an Oscar nomination for Best Actor, but that he would also take the coveted statue home. Things weren't so clear for Hardy's chances, though.
In a new interview with Esquire, Hardy revealed how a little self-doubt led to a very ill-conceived bet between the two talented friends. DiCaprio was certain that his fellow cast mate would also receive an Oscar nod for his role in The Revenant, while Hardy had no problem doubting himself and took the opposite stance.
The loser would have to get a tattoo of the winner's choice. Hardy lost, and now he has to get a DiCaprio-inspired tattoo.
“He wrote, in this really sh*tty handwriting: ‘Leo knows everything.’ Ha!” Hardy revealed. “I was like, ‘OK, I’ll get it done, but you have to write it properly.'”
Understandably, the 39-year-old actor isn't too keen on getting inked just yet. “I haven’t got it yet because it sucks,” Hardy added.
The lesson here is that if you ever question DiCaprio's intuition, you will end up with an ugly tattoo.
