Tom Hardy Says He’ll Get a Leonardo DiCaprio Tattoo After Losing a Bet

Tom Hardy is a man of his word.

The “Revenant” actor revealed in an interview with Esquire UK  that after losing a wager made by Leonardo DiCaprio last year, Hardy would now have to get a tattoo in DiCaprio’s handwriting.

“I haven’t got it yet because it sucks,” Hardy told Esquire.

The bet was made during awards season earlier this year, when DiCaprio bet that Hardy would receive an Oscar nomination for his work in “The Revenant,” though Hardy was certain he wouldn’t. If DiCaprio’s prediction was correct, Hardy would have to get a tattoo of his choosing. However, if Hardy was right, his co-star would have to get inked.

In the end, DiCaprio prevailed.

“He wrote, in this really shitty handwriting: ‘Leo knows everything.’ Ha!” the 39-year-old actor revealed. “I was like, ‘OK, I’ll get it done, but you have to write it properly.'”

Though the tattoo isn’t exactly on the top of his priorities, it wouldn’t be the first time he had to make good on a inked promise. As the profile recounts, among Hardy’s tattoos of his wife’s name, the London skyline, a Chinese dragon and religious figures is one of his agent Lindy King’s name. He made that commitment after saying he would get a tattoo if she ever got him in to Hollywood.
