We appreciate Tom Hardy as an actor. No really, it’s about his craft. We’re so excited to see his new movie, The Drop, a crime thriller co-starring James Gandolfini in his final role (his reviews have been ecstatic). Hardy’s range is crazy — he nails every role, whether he’s playing Queen Elizabeth’s dandy lover in BBC’s The Virgin Queen or the evil super-villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. We appreciate his talent and all, but honestly? He’s just hot.

Tom Hardy’s hot in a tough guy, take-me-or-leave-me way that most actors aren’t anymore. He has a dangerous background (drugs, arrests, guns, disorderly conduct) and an ambiguous sexuality (when Attitude magazine asked him if he’s slept with men, he said, “Of course. I’m an actor for fuck’s sake! I’ve played with everything and everyone”). He loves dogs and his son. And he’s ripped.

To celebrate the release of The Drop, we’ve compiled a list of the 10 reasons we can’t take our eyes off of this man. You’re welcome.
