Tom Hardy is always someone who takes things to the next level when it comes to his movies. While he doesn't go full method acting, he completely immerses himself in the role and gives all he can to it.

This includes encouraging his castmates to injure him if the scene requires it from them!

No one can say he isn't a team player.

Tom Hardy is definitely one of the best actors in Hollywood.
