Hollywood star Tom Hardy became enraged after a reporter asked him an irrelevant question at Toronto International Film Festival.
Tom Hardy, his “Legend” co-star Emily Browning and director Brian Helgeland attended the movie’s press release at the fest in which a question came up about his sexuality, reported Ace Showbiz.
In “Legend”, Hardy plays the infamous East End London gangster twins Ronnie and Reggie Kray. Ronnie was openly gay.
A reporter apparently saw a link to Hardy’s personal life, asking about Hardy’s sexuality based on an interview he gave to a magazine in 2008. The “Inception” star snapped, “What on earth are you on about?”
Hardy, 37, was visibly upset that the subject matter was brought up again.
“But what is your question?” Hardy asked the reporter in a loud and resolute voice.
The reporter asked again, “I’m wondering if you find it difficult for celebrities to talk about their sexuality.” Hardy returned, “I don’t find it difficult for celebrities to talk about their sexuality. Are you asking about my sexuality?” The reporter replied, “Hum … sure.”
Hardy then asked, “Why?” before dismissing the reporter with “thank you”.
