It's important that every single human on this planet knows about Tom Hardy's old MySpace photos. If you don't, please drop everything (phones, purses, files, small children) and witness the Internet gold that is Tom's embarrassingly beautiful MySpace profile. Then come back and start your new life as someone who has seen the Mad Max: Fury Road stud doing his best duckface while wearing a trucker hat.
There is only one thing that would make those photos better, and that is if Tom Hardy straight up owned the fact that a photo of him awkwardly posing in tighty-whities is floating around the Internet. And gosh dang it, he does own it.
He's particularly proud of that aforementioned underwear photo, or as he called them, his "tighty-whitey budgie smugglers."
"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," he told Sky News.
No truer statement has even been uttered. It is truly a glorious photo that should be framed and displayed at the Louvre so that future generations can study and appreciate its historic importance.
"In America, they say ‘You should be ashamed of this' but I'm actually not remotely ashamed. That is me in my natural habitat, thank you," he added.
No, no, Tom Hardy. Thank you. And know that this particular American would never think you should be ashamed of those photos. They have only brought joy to this planet.
Tom Hardy did have one false statement to make about those photos:
"I might not be an Adonis, but I like to think of myself as an Adonis in that photo," he said, which is a blatant lie. Has he seen himself? He's an Adonis.
He might be an Adonis with a duckface, but an Adonis nonetheless.
