Tom Hardy: I Love Come Dine With Me
Tough movie star dishes on his unexpected viewing habits...
He's the hardman actor who played Bane in The Dark Knight Rises and brought notorious convict Charles Bronson to life on the big screen.
So you'd expect Tom Hardy would spend his spare time bending iron bars and inviting people to punch him in the stomach, wouldn't you?
OK maybe not, but it's still a bit of a surprise to learn that the 36-year-old star's favourite TV programme is camp reality show Come Dine With Me.
The 36-year-old told The Sun that he never misses the Channel 4 show, saying: "I'm into Come Dine With Me at home, religiously. I'm an absolute fanatic.
"I put it on for the dogs as well when I go out. They've got to feel that someone's in the house."
And he admitted enjoys ITV's rival show Dinner Date too.
"Oh yeah, I watch that, it's great as well. I am an absolute sucker for that. Guilty pleasures are good.
"There's so much serious going on, it's nice to offset serious with not so serious."
We predict Tom's agent will be getting a call from the producer of Come Dine With Me's celeb spin-off this morning.
A picture of Tom as the Kray twins was revealed last week.
