Brawny, Bearded Tom Hardy Doesn’t Feel Very Manly

“I have always been frightened with men. To the point where I couldn’t go into a gym because of the testosterone and I felt weak. I don’t feel very manly. I don’t feel rugged and strong and capable in real life, not how i imagine a man ought to be. So I seek it, to mimic it and maybe understand it, or maybe to draw it into my own reality. People who are scary, they terrify me, but I can imitate them. I’m not a fighter. I’m a petite little bourgeosis boy from London. I don’t fight, I mimic.”

Tom Hardy may not feel very manly, but he sure as shit looks it on the cover of Esquire. There’s something especially sexy about a guy who looks like he’s punched a few teeth in, but actually wouldn’t hurt a fly. Whatever Tom Hardy is– rugged and burly or gentle and sweet — I like what he’s serving up. Yum yum, gimme some. [Dlisted]
