Tom Hardy & Christian Bale: Bane & Batman Battle!

Tom Hardy & Christian Bale: Bane & Batman Battle!

Tom Hardy walks around shirtless on the set of The Dark Knight Rises while his co-star Christian Bale films scenes with a Bane stunt double on Wednesday (August 3) in Pittsburgh, Penn.

Later in the day, the 33-year-old British actor put on his Bane gear to film some scenes alongside Christian.

Tom recently chatted with Total Film magazine about being asked to do the film.

“‘You’re asking me to come round the world with you in a Batman movie, playing a villain, and the only downside to it is I have to wear a mask?’” Tom joked. “‘Hmmm, let me think. I’ll get back to you… No, I’m f–ing there, man!’ …Any time you put something over your face, you’re going to adopt a personality and a physicality that has nothing to do with acting. It allows a performance to be free.”

  • ranger smith

    From the looks of that acne, looks like Mr. Hardy might be doing some ‘roids.

  • Kiki

    Mmmmm…. Bale. <3

  • unknown

  • frazzle

    thanks :) i love you

  • mailey

    christian. I.Love.You.THIS.MUCH.

  • Asha

    Ekkk…Tom was much more appealing in Inception. Back acne is not cute.

  • So&So

    Tom used to looks so hot now he’s all roid-lookin…#NotAGoodLook

  • Alaia

    What a bunch of shallow losers you are.

  • so-i-think-i-can-dance

    aw calling out on someone’s bacne. so mean. :(

  • Sue

    Tom only has Bacne because of wearing a heavy coat during a very hot summer. Grow the fark up, this isn’t the 8th grade. Bet most of you are VS supermodels and Brad Pitt’s. LMAO.

  • mrkonja fra brne

    Tom Hardy has the best skull.

  • just sayin

    i would really like to see christian’s face and body rather than the suit :(

  • chris

    people are cruel on this website. who HASN’T had skin problems in their life? celebrities are not perfect.

  • sb

    haven’t seen acne on his back before , settle down b!ches, looks like a temporary thing! Besides he is still super -hot in great part because of his coolness

  • Madhatter

    No, nobody is perfect
    and we’ve all had a zit or more.
    But, trust that people also have a lot of experience
    with people who bulk up quickly using ‘Roids
    and know the signs.

  • Madhatter

    and actually, Steroids might be very consistent with the character Tom Hardy is playing.
    So, maybe he’s a Method Actor!

  • Keah

    Tom wouldn’t be using steroids because he is a recovering addict. That is RIDICULOUS. Besides,my boyf is a trainer and the extra protein / occasional creatine when hes bulking up,not too mention the amount you sweat during a big workout easily causes breakouts like that. Tom’s body wouldn’t be able to adapt to it so quickly(:
    Tom you big big RIDE(:

  • dang

    Ugh! Put a shirt on Tom.

  • jiji

    nice to see A list celebs ar normal human beings and don’t have perfect skin! You rock that bacne Tom! Still a brilliant actor. Can’t wait for the film!

  • i need a thesaurus

    Batman is so ’80s. It’s like the Bond Franchise. Time for retirement.

  • tic

    Think we’re about done with the bacne. Anyone care to join me in snarking on the love-handles and the girly calves?

    Seriously, he’s looking like an out-of-shape fifty-year-old here, and he’s what… thirty-three?

  • MangerBouger

    This is the last time I’m coming on JJ.com … bloody spoilers without even hiding it jeeeeeeeeez Jared you are a pain !

  • Nancy

    Not my favorite Tom Hardy look but I’d stll hit it.

  • mrkonja fra brne

    Christian Bale AND Tom Hardy = MAJOR HOTNESS

  • Maris

    The man has acne on his back and everyone assumes he’s on steroids.
    Idiots.
    Tom Hardy is a recovering alcoholic and drug addict. If he shot himself with roids, it would be game over for his career and possibly his life. The man eats an obscene amount of calories and trains for hours a day, to look the way he does.
    I’m sure his high fat/calorie intake, thick Bane costume and 100 degree weather… is the cause for his acne. Not roids.

  • Pam Bailey

    I like that comment on his skull. That’s cute. He does have a nice skull, lol. I agree that he probably has a break out because he’s, a) working hard, b) dressed in a huge coat , etc., etc. Sweat under a big coat will do that to you. Also, guys are more prone to breakouts anyway. He’s alright in my book!

  • Dr Know

    Of course Tom has done roids. The shape he is in for Warrior is nearly impossible to reach without them. The back is a HUGE give away to the fact he has. People saying that he can’t as he’s a former addict… they aren’t particularly addictive. How do I know this? I’ve done them. It is not that big a deal.

  • Dan

    @lee:

    Steroids effects

  • dead poet

    you want him to squish his back acne into your face huh

  • glamour86

    Why everybody has to be so malicious? Who cares if he has skin problems, it doesn’t mean he is a bad actor!! He is one of the greatest actor of his time, it seems he works really hard and the results can be seen in the incredible good movies he did. He is always cute with fans and so smiley, affable and sweet during the inteviews. I think he is a very good actor and a very good person. LOVE TOM HARDY!!!!!!!!
