You might remember Tom Hardy from when he bulked up and went shirtless for the movie ‘Warrior.’ But now he’s slimmed down, put on a fitted suit and turned himself into the gent of ‘This Means War.’ Reese Witherspoon’s character had a hard enough time deciding between this guy and Chris Pine, but everyone’s a sucker for a romantic smooth talker.

We’ll be seeing more of Hardy in the future ’cause he’s appearing in ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ movie as — drum roll, please — Bane! This may not bode well for his gentlemanly image, but if he looks anything like he did in ‘Warrior,’ we can cut him some slack. See what we mean below.
