Tom Hardy told the Esquire Uk in an interview that he’ll get a tattoo in the near future, as he lost a bet with the Oscar winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio, where Leo waged that the Mad Max star would get an Oscar nomination for his role as John Fitzgerald, the sinister frontiersman who leaves Leo’s character to die in The Revenant.
Then Hardy not only took up the wager but also raised the stakes, which was - the loser gets a tattoo of the winner’s choosing. When the awards season rolled around, Hardy nabbed the Oscar nomination, which means he’ll now be getting a tattoo that’s custom-designed by Leo. Hardy described as ugly.
“He wrote, in this really sh*tty handwriting: ‘Leo knows everything,'” Hardy said. “Ha! I was like, ‘OK, I’ll get it done, but you have to write it properly.'”
For now, however, Hardy is resisting for as long as he can.
“I haven’t got it yet,” he said. “Because it sucks.”
