Tom Hardy Did Make Gay Sex Comments

Tom Hardy Did Make Gay Sex Comments

Following controversy over remarks from Inception star Tom Hardy about having sexual relations with men, it appears that the British actor did make the comments, but he spoke the words to a gay publication two years ago, fueling charges that the quotes, though accurate, were taken out of context last week.

Entertainment Weekly reports on the back and forth about the comments, which a source close to Hardy tried to downplay last week after they appeared in the tabloid Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail was rehashing a 2008 article in Now magazine, which claimed to have interviewed Hardy where dropped the bisexual bomb,” reports EW. “But Now totally ripped off Attitude magazine's 2008 cover story with Tom back when he was promoting 'RocknRolla' You following?”

In 2008, Hardy appeared on the cover of Attitude and talked about playing a gay gangster in the Guy Ritchie film. Here’s the exchange:

It's such a tradition of London gangsters, the gay thing, what with the Krays...

I wouldn't like to say. I really wouldn't. It's an unsaid, un-talked about thing. The military get it as well. Sexual relations with men in situations where it's a necessity, like prison, are different from being homosexual.

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.

Have you done it all?

Not all but I can imagine. We've all got an *beep* and I can imagine. It just doesn't do it for me, sex with another man. 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 don't think I'm metrosexual but I'm definitely my mother's son. I have definite feminine qualities and a lot of gay men are incredibly masculine.
