Long before Christopher Nolan cruelly slapped a mask on Tom Hardy for "The Dark Knight Rises," the British hunk was winning modeling contests.
In the clip, a 21-year-old Hardy struts his stuff on the runway and shares personal information about his favorite actors and career aspirations. Spoiler: He wins.
According to the Daily Mail, modern-day Tom Hardy was not pleased when British talk show host Jonathan Ross aired a clip of his model competition past on his show in February.
