Tom Hardy Calls Filming 'This Means War' Miserable: I Felt Like an 'Other'
By Jackie Willis
Don't expect to see Tom Hardy's softer side anytime soon.
The Dark Knight Rises star revealed to USA Today that after filming the successful 2012 romantic comedy This Means War, also starring Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon, he's not interested in ever returning to that genre of cinema.
"I love to do things I hadn't done before," he said before going into his negative experience while working on This Means War. "I didn't understand how you could do something which is so much fun and be so miserable doing it."
Hardy told the newspaper he felt like an "other," and because of that, expect to see him in more action roles. "I probably won't do a romantic comedy again, do you know what I mean?" he confessed.
Perhaps him staying away from romcoms will help this heartthrob manage the fame. "I hate being tracked or followed," Hardy, 36, said. "When you go to drama school, no one gives you a class on fame. … Just treat people how you wish to be treated. Whether I'm married or not married, people will find out. But it's also not something I'm going to offer."
Would you like to see Hardy in another romantic comedy role, or is he best in action movies like his upcoming films The Drop and Mad Max: Fury Road?
