Does Tom Hardy even need an intro? This is a guy that’s probably on a lot of guy’s (and girls’) crush list. It’s pretty amazing that Tom Hardy went from playing Patrick Stewart’s younger self in 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis to bulking up to playing the intimidating foe in 2012’s Dark Knight Rises. Tom did nothing for me back in the day but the older he gets, the more into him I’m finding myself. The muscles, the ink, those lush lips and the accent … yes Lawd, yassss! Tom was born in 1977 in London, England.
