If Tom Hardy is the love of your life, be prepared to fall even more head over heels for him.
At Cannes Film Festival, members of the Mad Max: Fury Road team participated in a Q&A panel. Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron both attended, and everything was totally chill until a reporter stood up and asked a very uncomfortable question:
“I have a question for Tom Hardy. Tom, I’ll preface my remarks by saying that I have five sisters, a wife, a daughter, and a mother so I know what it’s like to be outgunned by estrogen. But I just wanted to ask you, as you were reading the script, did you ever think, “Why are all these women in here? I thought this was supposed to be a man’s movie?”
Luckily, Tom Hardy is a decent human being, and shut the reporter down with a extremely concise answer, and a look on his face that implies, ‘Who the fuck is this guy? What kind of question is that?’
Even if it was a joke – the question sucks. There’s so many interesting questions to ask about the new Mad Max film, and the only thing the guy could think of was ‘too many women, AMIRITE?!’
No – you’re not right. Tom Hardy says stay in your lane.
p.s. We’ve skipped ahead to the good bit (9 minutes 45 seconds) for you.
