Tom Hardy reveals gay past

tomhardyBrit actor Tom Hardy – who has courted wide attention in Hollywood following his lead role in the summer sci-fiblockbuster Inception – has revealed that he has had gay sex in the past. The 32-year-old star, in an interview with Now magazine, was asked if he’d ever slept with a man. He replied, “Of course I have. I'm an actor for f*ck's sake. I've played with everything and everyone.

"I love the form and the physicality, but now that I'm in my thirties, it doesn't do it for me. I'm done experimenting but there's plenty of stuff in a relationship with another man, especially gay men, that I need in my life. A lot of gay men get my thing for shoes. I have definite feminine qualities and a lot of gay men are incredibly masculine. A lot of people say I seem masculine, but I don't feel it. I feel intrinsically feminine. I'd love to be one of the boys but I always felt a bit on the outside. Maybe my masculine qualities come from overcompensating because I'm not one of the boys.”

Hardy picked up many gay fans for his performance in the film Bronson (pictured). He is currently engaged to British actress Charlotte Riley, 28, and has a child by a former girlfriend.
