Tom Hardy has revealed that he lost a bet with Leonardo DiCaprio after the Oscar winner said his Revenant co-star would also get a nomination for playing John Fitzgerald.
The Legend actor bet a “tattoo of the winner’s choosing” that he would receive no such nomination.
“[DiCaprio] wrote, in this really shitty handwriting: ‘Leo knows everything,'” Hardy recalled. “Ha! I was like, ‘OK, I’ll get it done, but you have to write it properly.'”
DiCaprio picked up the Best Actor award for his role as Hugh Glass in The Revenant and although he didn’t win, Hardy also picked up a Best Supporting Actor nomination.
“I haven’t got [the tattoo] yet,” he told Esquire. “Because it sucks.”
Meanwhile, Charlize Theron recently addressed the issues she had working with Hardy on 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road.
Theron said Hardy had called her a “fucking nightmare” in a note he left her after filming finished.
The note read: “You are an absolute nightmare, BUT you are also fucking awesome. I’ll kind of miss you. Love, Tommy.”
She explained: “We drove each other crazy, but I think we have respect for each other, and that’s the difference.
“This is the kind of stuff that nobody wants to understand – there’s a real beauty to that kind of relationship.”
Theron continued: “Maybe the movie is what it is because we struggled so much with each other, and those characters had to struggle so much with each other.
“If we were chum-chum, maybe the movie would have been 10 times worse.
“From what I hear, he’s not like that on every movie – I hear he’s had good experiences.”
Director George Miller also said that the characters’ arch of moving from initial hostility, then banding together out of necessity, was essentially what happened with the two actors in real life.
Miller recently explained that he’s planning on making more Mad Max films with a further two stories lined up.
