Royal Wedding 2018: ​Tom Hardy Arrives Bald... And Everyone's Saying The Same Thing

Royal Wedding 2018: ​Tom Hardy Arrives Bald... And Everyone's Saying The Same Thing

While we're waiting for Harry and Meghan to finally say 'I do' and tie the knot, all we can do in the meantime is watch excitedly as the guests arrive at Windsor Castle.

We've spotted Amal Clooney and husband George, David and Victoria Beckham, Idris Elba, Oprah and even Harry's ex, Chelsy Davy.

Rocking up bald, some people on social media are feeling a bit uncomfortable with his new look - while a few others have begun to question if it's Hardy we're seeing... or actually his iconic baddie alter-ego, Bane.

The reason why he's clean-shaven is, of course, for his role as Al Capone in forthcoming flick Fonzo, which will depict how Capone's 'past becomes present as harrowing memories of his violent and brutal origins melt into his waking life'. There's no release date currently scheduled, although it is thought that the end of 2018 or the start of 2019 might be realistic.

The actor recently shared a photo from the set, captioning it: "Mega awkward character misstep."

Ah, the glamours of make-up and, we're guessing/hoping, heavy prosthetics.

And it's not the first time he's chopped all his hair off for a role, either. Let's not forget about Bronson, which not only included a haircut, but also a massive weight gain.

Hardy said it was an intense journey to physically become the famed prisoner, telling Ask Men: "It was a race against the clock. We didn't have any time to waste, so I started eating and my arse very quickly got very fat.

"For Bronson, I put on about 7lbs a week-with no steroids.

"In the end, I'd put on about two and a half stone by eating chicken and rice, which was my staple diet throughout the day. Then I'd have a pizza, Häagen-Dazs, and Coca-Cola. So not good stuff, but I had to put weight on.

"I needed to put a layer of fat on my body because Bronson - when he was younger - was a big guy, a brawler. My diet was lenient as we weren't going for the Bruce Lee look and we weren't looking for the cut."
