There was a bit of a hiccup for Tom Hardy today as he was promoting his latest film, Legend. A question from the audience came from LGBT writer Graeme Coleman. The transcript of what was said is below.
“In the film, your character Ronnie is very open about his sexuality. But given interviews you’ve done in the past your own sexuality seems a bit more ambiguous. Do you find it hard for celebrities to talk to media about their sexuality?”
Hardy replied, “I don’t find it difficult for celebrities to talk about their sexuality. Are you asking me about my sexuality?”
“Umm, sure,” Coleman said.
“Why?” Hardy asked.
As Coleman stuttered in response, Hardy ended the interview simply saying, “Thank you.”
Here is the awkward moment caught on camera. The incident happens at the 28-minute mark.
Last year, Tom Hardy secretly married Charlotte Riley, and they are expecting their first child.
