In a recent interview to promote new flick, Inception, Tom Hardy had a bit of diarrhea of the mouth. He said that he’s “played with everyone and anyone” and made some comments about being gay.
The Daily Mail reports:
But asked if he’d ever had any sexual relations with other men, the broody actor said: ‘As a boy? Of course I have. I’m an actor for fuck’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.’ In an interview with Now magazine, the former party-boy who has battled drink, drugs and crime to turn his life around, added: ‘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.’
Now, his publicist has realized that he doesn’t know how to shut up and has released a statement to the contrary:
“It’s all taken out of context,” a source close to the rising star claimed after we asked about the article. Hmmm, we don’t doubt that The Daily Mail likes to embellish occasionally, but how exactly were that many quotes misrepresented?
“He was discussing a gay role and quotes coming from the character,” the same person defends.
Sure, it was for a role. Are you buying that?
