“Two hours of open weights, two hours of jujitsu, two hours of boxing, two hours of choreography…six days a week!” Tom dished. “We did that for about ten weeks before we started shooting and then we were shooting six day weeks as well.”

Warrior hits theaters on September 9.

I remember first being introduced to Tom Hardy in the underappreciated ‘Star Trek: Nemesis’ (2002) but the world took no notice of him until the last couple of years. He is now the first actor to appear in and play a villain in a Batman and Star Trek movie – my two favourite movie franchises. He is doing some amazing films now -

Warrior, This Means War, The Dark Knight Rises, Mad Max: Fury Road, Mad Max: Furiosa, etc.
He fought Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard) in Star Trek: Nemesis.
He fights fellow Star Trek alumni Chris Pine (James Kirk) in This Means War.
He fights Christian Bale (Batman/Bruce Wayne) in The Dark Knight Rises.

@Jack Easton: You are right, what most people don’t realize is that it takes years to be taken seriously as an actor. I’ve met hundreds of actors and I can say from experience that only 1/500 are as dedicated as him. Watch the video when they talk about training. Most actors out there would have quit the training after one hour and then got fired from the production.

All the glory that is coming Tom Hardy’s way is well deserved.

Damn, Captain Picard’s clone has put on some muscle since he played that skinny character. Check out his abs for the poster of Warrior. I have the same six pack but it’s several hundred sit-ups on the decline chair with a dumbbell on my chest. Like I said he’s fashioned himself mentally and physically to be the ultimate…

I got abs like his within the last four weeks!

You already have to have a thin waste. If you have a beer gut then it might be impossible. Then it’s all hard core weight lifting and pain while doing sit ups with a weight on your chest and on the decline. I love pain, it tells me I’m aliveeeeee. :)

I first became aware of Tom Hardy’s great acting ability when I saw him in ‘The Take’ and I have been an avid fan ever since.
