Tom Hardy Has It Out With Reporter Who Asks About His Sexuality: 'What on Earth Are You on About?'
By Alex Ungerman
Tom Hardy is not interested in questions about his personal life.
The 37-year-old actor was at a Toronto Film Festival panel for his upcoming movie, Legend, on Saturday, when a reporter for Daily Xtra, a Toronto LGBT publication, asked him about his reported "ambiguous" sexuality, and whether he found it difficult for celebrities to talk about their sexuality.
The reporter clarified by mentioning a 2008 Attitude magazine interview where Hardy apparently refers to same sex encounters in his past, before re-stating whether the Mad Max: Fury Road star found it difficult for celebrities to talk about their sexuality.
"I don't find it difficult for celebrities to talk about their sexuality," Hardy replied. "Are you asking about my sexuality?"
It's not the first time Hardy has shut down a reporter whom he believes stepped out of line. At a Cannes press conference for Mad Max: Fury Road, the actor immediately shut down a reporter's sexist question about sharing the screen with "all these women" in the film, by responding, "No. Not for one minute."
However, Hardy has opened up about his personal life in the recent past. In May, the actor told Essentials magazine about battling drug abuse when he was younger.
