Tom Hardy Reveals He Has To Get An Embarrassing Tattoo Because He Lost A Bet To ‘The Revenant’ Co-Star Leonardo DiCaprio

Tom Hardy and Leonardo DiCaprio’s first film together was 2010’s ‘Inception’. But the two got a lot closer after starring together in the Oscar-winning film ‘The Revenant’.

Speaking of Oscars, that is precisely the subject of their now public bet. After filming the movie, Leonardo DiCaprio made a bet with Tom Hardy that Tom would be nominated for an Oscar for his role in the film. Tom, being the modest guy that he is, never expected to be nominated, so he took the bet.


Lo and behold, once the Oscars came around, Tom was nominated for Best Actor in a Supporting Role. Mark Rylance ended up winning for his performance in ‘Bridge of Spies’. Little did we know, Tom lost twice that night.

The winner of their bet had the opportunity to choose anything they wanted to be tattooed on the loser’s body. Tom revealed that Leo wanted him to get “Leo knows everything” tattooed on him, but in really ugly letters. Tom agreed, as long as the letters were improved.

He still hasn’t made good on his bet, but something tells us, it’ll be a while until he finally does.
