It’s clear Tom Hardy did not appreciate this question at all. In the middle of a press conference at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 13, the actor was asked by a reporter about his own sexuality. Take a look at Tom’s response to the invasive question here!
This is a personal question Tom Hardy, 37, doesn’t have time for. While talking and promoting his new film, Legend, at the Toronto International Film Festival, the actor was questioned by a reporter about his ambiguous sexuality. Confused by the question, Tom asked for clarification and that’s when things took a turn for the worse.

“Why?” Was Tom’s response to the reporter who asked him about his own sexuality. This is how it all went down. “In the film, your character, Ronnie, is very open about his sexuality,” Graeme Coleman, the reporter for LGBT news outlet Daily Xtra, asked. “But given interviews you’ve done in the past, your own sexuality seems a bit more ambiguous. Do you find it hard for celebrities to talk to media about their sexuality?” Tom, clearly confused by this, asked for clarification and that’s when Graeme repeated the last part of his question.
The actor replied with, “I don’t find it difficult for celebrities to talk about their sexuality.” Before ending the conversation, Tom paused and went on to ask the reporter, “Are you asking me about my sexuality?” The reporter then responded with, “Sure.” To which Tom asked, “Why?” Laughter ensued and then Tom thanked the reporter for his question. Awkward! Watch it all go down above!
Tom & His Wife Are Expecting Their First Child Together
The actor is very private about his personal life, but there’s one thing he can’t wait for and that’s the birth of his first child with wife, Charlotte Riley, 33! The couple showed off Charlotte’s unmistakable baby bump on Sept. 3 at the U.K. premiere of Legend at Odeon Leicester Square. The baby, whose due date is not known at this time, will be the first for the happy couple, who reportedly got married in July, 2014. Tom, though, is already a daddy to son Louis Thomas, now 7, whom he had with ex-girlfriend, Rachael Speed.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Was Tom’s response to the reporter’s question rude or warranted?
