We all know that Tom Hardy loves dogs. Earlier this year, he even made everybody go in tears with his emotional tribute to his late dog Woodstock. But despite having proved his love for man’s best friend on several occasions, we can’t seem to get enough of him hanging out and posing with adorable dogs. To pay homage to Tom’s undeniable love for dogs, and because you asked for it, we’ve compiled several photos of the Dunkirk actor chilling with various canine companions together with some of the most amazing things he has said about dogs in interviews.
I’m an absolute sucker for dogs, and I normally find a dog on every film I do. They always end up in the house somehow, even if I have to take it from someone’s car. I’ve got no scruples. There’s always a way for a stray.
I don’t have any friends. I don’t keep them or entertain them for any of that kind of problem. So I like to keep [to] myself. I have a dog and a son. A dog couldn’t do anything to upset me, you know, and neither could my son.
Do you believe in serendipity? I do. No such thing as coincidence. So here’s my dog, right? [Displays a photo on his phone] His name was Mad Max when I got him. Like the first dog I ever had. Anyway, I fell in love with Max’s mom, Cass, when I was 16. My friend had her. And I was like, ‘If she ever has puppies, please can I have a dog?’ He was like, ‘Yeah, sure.’ And then my friend disappeared, and I never saw him again. But I went to visit his mom, see how she was and say hello. And she said, ‘Oh, we’ve got something for you here.’ And I open up the door, and there was Mad Max. And I was like, ‘I don’t like that name.’ ‘Cause he’s not mad, he’s just misunderstood.”
I had no immediate knowledge of the world of Batman at all. I’m quite incubated. I just keep myself to myself and my dog.
Thank you, Tom Hardy, for reminding us how awesome dogs are!
