Tom Hardy is too sexy for the Batmobile!
"Tom from London" was a contestant in a male modelling contest that aired on "The Big Breakfast," an early morning light entertainment British television series, back in 1998. It's hard to believe that the skinny 20-year old "whose acting heroes are Gary Oldman and Steven Berkoff" will one day grow up to be Gotham's reckoning (and a few pounds heavier).
And little did this young man know that he would go on to act with one of his heroes in not one but three (and counting!) movies: "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," "The Dark Knight Rises" and "Lawless."
This is all quite adorable. Check out Tom winning the contest below (none of the other pretty gents had a chance, really).
