Tom Hardy, who already sets hearts a-flutter by simply looking like Tom Hardy, attended the premiere of his new film, Legend, with his dog, Woody. Hardy found the Labrador mix with Jessica Chastain when “we were in Atlanta, Ga., doing Lawless, and he was in the motorway. We almost ran him over with a Prius… He ran off into the motorway, and Jess was like, ‘No, no, no! You’ve got to go after him!’ He was only 11 weeks old, and so we got hold of him and he became the on-set dog… He goes on all my film sets now. He’s a great on-set dog.” Take a moment to recover from your breathless swooning, because it gets better.
“I’m an absolute sucker for dogs, and I normally find a dog on every film I do,” Hardy [said] last September. “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.” (Via)
Woody, who’s so chill that he let Hardy work with another dog while filming The Drop, chased a pigeon (it got away), but didn’t take a poop on the red carpet, which would’ve been symbolically perfect. Perfection was found elsewhere, including this photo, which, c’mon.
We don’t deserve Tom Hardy. Or Woody.
