Tom Hardy is easily one of the sexiest beings on planet Earth. And based on some throwback MySpace photos of him that leaked online, he thought this long before we ever did. One photo in particular features our guy posing suggestively while sporting tighty-whitey-style underwear. Doesn’t his face just scream, “You know you want thissss?”
The bulge! The pose! The hand placement! It’s all too perfect for words. But how does Sir Hardy feel about the racy picture now? In an interview with Sky News, the Mad Max: Fury Road stud said, “I’ve got no shame about my MySpace photos, especially the one of me in my underpants which is a glorious photo of a man in his natural habitat. In my tighty-whitey budgie smugglers.” LOL, alright.
Wait. What the hell is a “budgie smuggler?” The cool peeps over at New York Magazine’s The Cut decided to find out. After consulting some dictionaries, the website claims “budgie smuggler” is Australian slang for “men’s tight-fitting Speedo-style swimwear. The ’lump in the front’ apparently resembles a budgie when it is stuffed down someone’s shorts.”
And what’s a budgie, you ask? A tiny bird. So basically, Tom just said he’s proud his penis looks like a small feathered creature in this picture. Hey! We’re cool with it if he is. No judgement.
