Tom Hardy Is “Not Remotely Ashamed” About His Old Myspace Photos, Nor Should He Be


Tom Hardy’s old MySpace page, from its underwear photos to its glorious “About Me” section, gave us all a serious case of hearts-in-eyes syndrome when it first made the rounds, but no one knew how Hardy felt about the memeification of his former profile … until now. Hardy has come forward and said he’s “not remotely ashamed” about his old photos and bio, going so far as to delineate the photo above as his personal favorite:

I’ve got no shame about my MySpace photos, especially the one of me in my underpants which is a glorious photo of a man in his natural habitat.

In my tighty-whitey budgie smugglers. In America, they say “you should be ashamed of this” but I’m actually not remotely ashamed – that is me in my natural habitat, thank you.

I might not be an Adonis, but I like to think of myself as an Adonis in that photo.

So … Hardy’s “natural habitat” is standing in a kitchen doorway in a pair of underwear? Yes, this all seems to be in order. Carry on, Mr. Hardy.
