Hardy bet against himself winning an Oscar nomination for his performance in 'The Revenant'.
Mumbai: Actor Tom Hardy has revealed that he had a bet with his ‘The Revenant’ co-star and Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio prior to the 2016 Academy Awards, which he lost.
DiCaprio predicted that Hardy would get a nomination for his sinister role in the movie, but Hardy bet against himself, ironically losing the wager by winning an Oscar nomination for his supporting role, reported Entertainment Tonight.
The two agreed that the loser of the bet would have to get a tattoo of the winner's choosing, and DiCaprio's design is quite interesting.
"He wrote, in this handwriting: 'Leo knows everything,'" Hardy said.
"Ha! I was like, 'OK, I'll get it done, but you have to write it properly.'"
It's been 11 months since the nominations were announced, but Hardy is yet to follow through. He said that he has procrastinated on getting the ink simply "because it sucks."
