    Tom Hardy‘s acting and good looks are not the only thing that he has been appreciated for. His accents have also made their way to the list of things his fans love about him.

    In a recent interview with Variety, Tom Hardy revealed his desire to defy typical expectations for his character as well as the reason behind his slightly amusing accent in the upcoming film ‘The Bidkeriders‘.

    You look straight away at a biker movie and think, ‘Oh, it’s leather. It’s sexy. The music’s great. The hair’s great. The obvious choice is to play to all of these.’ So the obvious choice for somebody like me is to go to the counterpoint of all those. This guy is a tragic clown,” Tom Hardy said during the interview.

    The ‘Venom’ actor further elaborated on his approach, clarifying that he wanted to highlight the character’s flaws and vulnerabilities. “Where’s the pathetic element? Where’s the wretch? Where’s the embarrassing moments? Where’s the weaknesses? I need to flesh this guy out. Why is the voice a little bit creepy? Why is it a little like Bugs Bunny? What can we imbue this stud with that’s so un-studly that I can identify with it? Because I’m not that!” he said.

    Though he tried his best to pull off the accent, he did agree that he tried his best. Hardy admitted he’s “not sure that I did nail” the Midwest accent, further adding, “What’s important to me is that if you’re doing something as an actor, if you’re going to commit, then make the effort to fully commit, even if you fail.”

    This is not the first time Hardy would be using an accent. He has a history of unique and often hard-to-understand accents in films like ‘Lawless’, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, and ‘The Revenant’.

    He also addressed the rumors about reprising his role as Alfie Solomons in the upcoming ‘Peaky Blinders‘ movie spin-off. He hinted at the possibility, he said, “One hundred per cent, Alfie will definitely make an appearance, but I don’t know when. And I don’t even know if he will, that’s just me punting.”

    Hardy’s upcoming film ‘The Bikeriders’ boasts a star-studded cast, including Jodie Comer, Austin Butler, Michael Shannon, Mike Faist, and Norman Reedus.
