Though would you believe the man himself didn’t rate the state of his own rig back in 2012?

Honouring the storied tradition his Nolan Trilogy co-star Christian Bale (AKA Bruce Wayne / Batman himself) routinely makes headlines for, Tom Hardy packed on over 30 pounds (13.6kg) of mass, muscle, and brute strength lớn play Gotham’s reckoning. In a recent interview with bbc Radio 1 – more specifically, during its viral ‘Kids Ask’ segment – he revealed his khung wasn’t as impressive as everyone had assumed.

“If you really study the photographs , I was really overweight, actually. I ate a lot and I wasn’t much heavier than I am now, but I just ate more pizza. They shoot from low lớn make you look big,” admits Tom Hardy.

“People would lift up the lids on their motorbike & say, ‘I always thought you were bigger, mate’… I was just bald, slightly porky, và with pencil arms.”

“That’s the magic of lighting and three or four months of lifting & training và eating lots of pizza. It wasn’t great for my heart. The point was khổng lồ look as big as possible. I have really skinny legs and my friend Jacob Tomuri — my stunt man — liked to lớn say, ‘Why did Tom videoclipvn.come in riding an emu?”

Elsewhere, the British thespian has previously spoken about the toll of undertaking roles like Bane in general, citing the demand as untenable after a certain age.


“I think you pay the price with any drastic physical changes,” Hardy told The Daily Beast.

“It was alright when I was younger… but I think as you get into your 40s you have to be more mindful of the rapid training, packing on a lot of weight, và getting physical, và then not having enough time khổng lồ keep training because you’re busy filming… so your body is swimming in two different directions at the same time.”

“videoclipvn.compared to Christian Bale, I’ve been by no means extreme in my body toàn thân changes.”


“I haven’t damaged my body, but I’m certainly a bit achier than I used to lớn be. I certainly have joints that click that probably shouldn’t click, you know what I mean? and carrying my children is a little bit harder than it used to lớn be – but don’t tell them!”

All we’ll say is this: if Tom fucking Hardy was insecure about his transformation into Bane for The Dark Knight Rises – what chance vày the rest of us ordinary blokes have?

Anyone with a lingering desire khổng lồ achieve what the big guy did for The Dark Knight Rises can give the following workout a red-hot go (courtesy of Muscle & Strength; pizza diet optional).
