Tom Hardy and Leonardo DiCaprio are easily two of the most well-respected actors in Hollywood. They represent that particular subset of man a lá George Clooney — men want to be like them and women want to date them! They're just that charming. That being said, even the most charming gentleman can get a little juvenile every now and again and it seems that's exactly what happened on the set of The Revenant where the two co-starred.
In an interview with Esquire UK, Hardy explains that a wager was made between the two guys over Hardy's potential Oscar nomination. It seems that Leo really does know all (more on that later). Esquire writes:
"DiCaprio predicted that Hardy would get an Oscar nomination for his supporting role as a feral frontiersman who leaves DiCaprio’s character for dead after the latter is mauled by a grizzly bear. Hardy bet a tattoo of the winner’s choosing that he wouldn’t. Hardy lost. Hardy recreates DiCaprio’s design on a Post-it note for me. “He wrote, in this really shitty handwriting: ‘Leo knows everything.’ Ha! I was like, ‘OK, I’ll get it done, but you have to write it properly.'"
Man, that sounds like quite the friendship and of course, Hardy being the upstanding dude that he is has finally made good on his bet! Below, Hardy was pictured out with a fan and if you look closely at his bicep, there it is! "Leo Knows All" — admittedly, our respect for Hardy just went through the roof. Not many guys would follow through like that.
It may not be our taste, but overall, it's a pretty nice tattoo! Plus, at the end of the day, Tom is covered in them! What's difference is a little personalized Leonardo DiCaprio tattoo going to make?
