Hollywood actor Tom Hardy finally gets his Leonardo DiCaprio tattoo two years after losing a bet to the Titanic actor. In 2016, Hardy bet that his The Revenant co-star DiCaprio will not win the Best Actor Award at the Academy Awards in which he was nominated himself.
DiCaprio had been nominated five times prior to the 2016 Oscar and finally won the award in 2016 for his role of frontiersman Hugh Glass. Whoever lost the bet had to get a tattoo of the other’s choosing. The rules of the bet stated that if DiCaprio won the, Hardy must get inked with the phrase ‘Leo knows everything’. In an interview with Esquire post Oscars, Hardy said, “He wrote, in this really s****y handwriting: ‘Leo knows everything. Ha! I was like, ‘OK, I’ll get it done, but you have to write it properly. ”
Recently, a photo of Hardy surfaced which gives a glimpse of the tattoo inked on his bicep. It is reportedly written in DiCaprio’s own handwriting and reads ‘Leo knows all’. While accepting his Oscar, DiCaprio made it a point to thank his ‘brother’ Tom Hardy. “Tom, your fierce talent on the screen can only be surpassed by your friendship off screen,” he said.
Tom Hardy is currently busy shooting for Venom, the Spider-Man spinoff while Leonardo DiCaprio will appear in Quentin Tarantino’s new movie.
