Tom Hardy Fighting with Leonardo DiCaprio on the Inception Set
Posted 12.04.09 by Ryan
Tom Hardy's career certainly isn't getting banged up, but the British actor sure is. Hardy talked to MTV from the set of Inception, Christopher Nolan's upcoming thriller that no one will discuss, where he admitted he often brawls in between takes with co-star Leonardo DiCaprio.
He's a big MMA fan, so we've been kicking each other. Kicking and elbowing each other. He keeps bruising me. He gives me as good as he gets.
Hardy's work in front of the camera doesn't sound much better considering the scene he was currently working on involved him "being plummeted through a floor." Before Inception, Hardy was working on the mixed martial arts drama Warrior, where he suffered a broken toe, torn ligaments, and cracked ribs. In comparison, Hardy seems quite happy sparring with DiCaprio.
I was in shellshock because I'd been pretty badly beaten up on [Warrior]. It was like [Christopher Nolan] swept me up on this carpet of love and took me around the world.
