Inception's Tom Hardy: Gay? Bisexual? Who Knows!

Inception's Tom Hardy: Gay? Bisexual? Who Knows!

Inception breakout star Tom Hardy wraps his arm around his fiancee, British actress Charlotte Riley, while watching the horse races during Ladies Day at the Glorious Goodwood Festival on Thursday (July 29) in Chichester, England.

The 32-year-old British actor, who has a two-year-old son with a former girlfriend, recently admitted that he’s had sexual relations with other men. He shared, “As a boy? Of course I have. I’m an actor for ****’s sake. ‘I’ve played with everything and everyone. I love the form and the physicality, but now that I’m in my thirties, it doesn’t do it for me. I’m done experimenting but there’s plenty of stuff in a relationship with another man, especially gay men, that I need in my life. A lot of gay men get my thing for shoes. I have definite feminine qualities and a lot of gay men are incredibly masculine.”

Tom added in another interview, “A lot of people say I seem masculine, but I don’t feel it. I feel intrinsically feminine. I’d love to be one of the boys but I always felt a bit on the outside. Maybe my masculine qualities come from overcompensating because I’m not one of the boys.”

    I like this guy! He gets it. Its not about fitting into a category. Its not about being gay or straight or bi its about being you. And being with people who your attracted to.

  • t


  • Dominic

    A lot of people don’t believe in males being bi sexual. I personally go through life assuming everyone is gay until they prove otherwise.

  • LizaH

    I think it is refreshing that he is so candid. However, I would think twice if I was his girlfriend. You never know when tendencies with reappear.

  • Annie

    He was so great in Inception. Love that he’s so honest and true to himself. Very refreshing!

  • refreshing

    how refreshingly honest for an actor and I bet it does not impact his ability to get work!

  • Leila, 24

    Honesty is sooo sexy.

  • lala

    too much information, yuck

  • The Desolate One

    I can’t relate to what he said even a LITTLE bit That’s when you KNOW you’re not gay, or don’t even have it in you.

  • tan

    wow, i like him a lot

  • yay

    someone’s trying to get on hollywood’s good side

  • Londoner

    He is awesome and everything he’s been through in his life has really humbled him.

  • Jermaine

    i still haven’t seen inception

  • Catchy

    a total hottie anyway.

  • sighs

    She is so lucky.


    I love the honesty. If it was a woman saying this–all the comments would be : WHORE! SLUT! TRAMP!

  • CanadaGirl

    Wow. There’s a confession. I wonder if someone was going to “come out” with some news and he decided to beat them to the punch?
    @LizaH: Agreed. I say be who you want to be, but I want to be with a 100% hetero. guy.
    Uhh… off topic… but I recall reading an interview/article about Chris Martin and he said that he thought he was gay when he was in his teens/20s. Did anyone else hear that?

  • Jonte

    The word you’re looking for is Pansexual, Jared.

  • Nic

    Very honest, however Jared did you read his actual full interview of this? I have, some stuff has been sooo left out, and taken out of the context, he also mentioned that the actual sex act with a man does NOT do it for him, he doesnt find it appealing he said. It’s so nasty how the press in the UK has dissected his interview, and just used the parts they thought would get headlines!

    He basically said, he experimented as a teenager, but is not gay.

  • KK

    Why can’t you ever find goodlooking men so comfortable in their own skin in real life.

  • ~

    All the perfect men are either gay or married.

  • damn

    LOVE. HIM.

  • Yasmin

    Tom Hardy <33

  • Dance In The Dark

    He is so ridiculously hot.

    If anyone is a new fan of his you should really check out a lesser known film of his called “Scenes of a Sexual Nature”. It’s absolutely brilliant. “Bronson” as well being an obvious choice, he was robbed of a BAFTA for his performance.

    Well done to him as well for saying all this, but if you read the actual article he says so much more, the tabloids have just taken the ‘sensational’ stuff and some of it isn’t even in context.

  • well

    i dont find him goodlooking but hes def. charming

  • Nic

    Here is what he said:

    Have you ever had any sexual relations with men?
    As a boy? Of course I have. I’m an actor for *beep*’s sake. I’m an artist. I’ve played with everything and everyone. But I’m not into men sexually. I love the form and the physicality but the gay sex bit does nothing for me. In the same way as a wet vagina would turn someone else into a lemon-sucking freak. To me it just doesn’t compute now I’m into my 30s and it doesn’t do it for me and I’m done experimenting.

  • Nate

    Jake Gyllenhaal should take notes.

  • MM

    who cares…till I see a headline that says “hetrosexual man nets lead in action movie”…no one should be discussing sexuality of anyone celeb as a headline!!


    Hmmm I wonder if he was the bottom?

  • Nora

    Either he is too sexy blunt or closeted. Either way, it works for him – either way!

  • KellStar

    As if JGL and Cillian weren’t enough HOTNESS in Inception, then this guy comes along and I’m just drooling for the entire movie.

  • dirt

    Omg I love Tom his lips are sooo Sexy and luscious…He is a very underrated actor one of UK’s finest in my opionion.Scenes of a Sexual Nature was great.He stole the show as Handsome Bob imo in RocknRolla he had a thing for Gerard Butler’s character OneTwo! Great movie great cast!

  • yay

    he was also a drug addict and alcoholic for many of those experimental years. maybe turning tricks for drugs? no mention of that anywhere


    What do you guys think


  • Frida

    Good for him! @LizaH: what ‘tendencies’? Just because he might like men too doesn’t mean he would cheat on her as soon as a goodlooking guy came along?

  • zao77254

    A bisexual man in Hollywood !
    Who would have thought about that ?

    Please, if a guy admitting swinging both ways is considered risqué then don’t ever read about Caligula

  • Iffy Miffy

    Brill guy! Love the fact that he has no qualms in admitting what his life was and is, and doesn’t give a sh.t what some close minded numbskull may think about it. Live your life people the way you see fit and it’ll be a life well lived!

  • jill

    He looks like Logan Marshall Green. He’s the guy who played Trey on the O.C.

  • oh

    @FRESH: lol. you’re thinking too much about this

  • Just A Comment

    He’s probably talking about early teen (14, 15) circle jerks. It’s not a big deal.

  • aeg

    @LizaH: True

  • dani


    She did and her name is Angelina Jolie and look at the hatred spewed at her.

  • yo sista

    I like him! his honesty is so sexy

  • viv

    I LOVED them both in jane austens wuthering heights <333

  • god

    Homosexuality is a sin!

  • Puzzled

    @god: So is gossip, according to the Bible, so what are you doing here if you take everything the Bible says literally.

  • Anna


    ?? What do you mean? Just because he experimented sexually in his youth there is a bigger risk he might be unfaithful in the future? I guess that goes for a LOT of men – and women – then. Lol.

    I adore this man. Besides having amazing talent and dashing good looks he’s also refreshingly honest and candid in interviews. What a package.

  • G

    HOT. It’s refreshing to see someone so honest and so comfortable with blurring the boundaries of sexuality.

  • MandyCandy

    That’s kind of hawt, actually. I’d hit that.

  • boston61

    HE’S GAY! Girls do not marry “bisexual” men. You will soon regret it.
