Actor Tom Hardy shut down a reporter from an LGBT media outlet who asked him about his sexuality during a press conference at the Toronto International Film Festival Sunday.
“Our question is for Tom Hardy,” Graeme Coleman from Daily Xtra began.
“In the film, your character, Ronnie, is very open about his sexuality. But given interviews you’ve done in the past, your own sexuality seems a bit more ambiguous. Do you find it hard for celebrities to talk to media about their sexuality?” Coleman continued.
Hardy: “What on earth are you on about?”
Coleman: “I was referring to an interview given to Attitude magazine a few years ago.”
Hardy: “But what is your question?”
Coleman: “I was wondering if you find it difficult for celebrities to talk about their sexuality?”
Hardy: “I don’t find it difficult for celebrities to talk about their sexuality…Are you asking about my sexuality?”
Coleman: “Um, sure.”
Hardy, who is expecting a child with his wife Charlotte Riley, cut him off by saying “Thank you.”
The awkward exchange begins at the twenty-eight minute mark.
