Hollywood hottie Tom Hardy was in Paris, France today promoting his new film, “Warrior” at the Bristol Hotel on Monday. The film is about an ex-Marine who goes home for the first time in over a ten years to to have his father help him train for a martial arts tournament.
More recently, the 33 year old has bulked up for his role in The Dark Knight Rises where he’ll be playing Bane. The film will star Anne Hathaway as Catwoman/Selena Kyle and Christian Bale as Batman/Bruce Wayne, among the other A-list actors in the film.
Several months ago, Hardy talked about his concern with having to gain all the weight needed for the role in such a short period of time:
“I’ve got to get up to about 189lbs or 196lbs. I’m 168lbs-and-a-bit now and we start shooting in May so I’ve got only three months to bulk up, it’s a lot of fat and trickery.”
Well, he DEFINITELY succeeeded in gaining weight. He also shaved his head. Check out his new Vin Diesel-look below and let me know what you think…
