This English actor has definitely immersed himself in the American entertainment scene, you may remember him in movies, Inception (2010) and The Revenant (2015) for which he received a nomination at the Academy Awards for the best supporting actor award. The actor has the ability to move from one scene to another, as he has done on the British and American scenes. So today, for his national and international fans, we check all his statistics, starting with Tom Hardy’s height.
Tom Hardy’s Height
At first glance, we would say that he is one of those celebrities whose size cannot really be measured, that he doesn’t look small but that he doesn’t look incredibly tall either. We can tell you for sure, the actor is well above the height of an average man. After all this discussion, how tall is Tom Hardy?
Tom Hardy is 5 feet 9 inches tall, he is not out of this world, but he is not a dwarf. The actor is known to accept roles in movies that make him look bigger than life, so it is alarming to see him compete against some of his biggest co-stars.
For example, when he played Bane in Batman; The Dark Knight Rises, he saw “eye to eye” with Christian Bale, who is at least three inches taller than him. It wasn’t the special effects people, it was a trick as old as time. Two words… foot lifts. The actor, who once described himself as a “London petty bourgeois”, is used to starring taller actors, even actresses, and the lifts always go around.
Tom Hardy is not the only man in Hollywood who wants to add a few inches to their height, people like Simon Cowell, Tom Cruise, and Robert Downey Jr. have been known to pile up a little, on and off the set. There are also celebrities who share Tom Hardy’s size, just in case you want to compare.
Mark Zuckerberg, Ian Somerhalder, and Pharrell are all as tall as Tom Hardy.
Tom Hardy’s Weight
Tom Hardy’s height and weight have been modified for film parts. We already know he wears elevators, but did you see the actor before he played Bane in Batman: The Dark Knight Rises? This transformation was the object of dreams and people were talking more and more about Hardy.
In the film Batman, he went through an alarming transformation, but this is not the first time he had to completely change his construction, in the 2008 film, Bronson where he played a young man who was sentenced to seven years in prison for stealing from a post office eventually spent three decades in isolation.
Also, in the film Warrior (2011), where he played a fighter and ex-MMA soldier, his body underwent serious changes. Speaking of what he had to do for Bronson, he said, “For Bronson, I put on about 7lbs a week — with no steroids.”
In the absence of steroids, that’s what the actor ended up doing, “In the end, I put about 2.5 stones in eating chicken and rice, which was my basic diet all day. Then I would have had pizza, Häagen-Dazs, and Coca-Cola: So it’s not good, but I had to put some weight on it.
Some would say that his role as Bane asked him to look like a balance between his Bronson size and Warrior. He had barely three months to achieve this feat by taking 30 pounds, and he did very well if we say it ourselves. The actor currently weighs 82 kg, but we don’t count on that for long, because he is used to inflating himself from time to time.
Tom Hardy’s Body Measurements
In addition to the height and weight of the actor, we have some additional statistics from Tom here for you. His chest is 45 inches long, his waist circumference 34 inches, and his biceps 16 inches. Wow! He is incredibly buff for a ‘petite bourgeois boy from London’.
Here is also Tom Hardy’s shoe size. The actor wears an American size 10, a European size 43, and a British size 9.5. This brings us to the end, we hope we have done justice to his statistics.
