Tom Hardy to go naked in BBC period drama

Tom Hardy, our favourite sexy beefcake actor, is to go full-frontal but for a loin cloth, in his latest BBC drama, Taboo.

The actor, who once shared that “of course” he’d had sexual relations with men because “I’m an actor!” explained to the BBC, who commissioned the series from Hardy himself and his father:

“You’re lucky there was a loincloth because I didn’t want one.

“It’s not a period drama until someone gets naked and covers themselves in blood. At least you’re showing willing.”

This clears up those paparazzi shots which set hearts racing when Tom in his birthday suit was photographed –  from the front and back – by long-lens cameras.

Alas, the BBC hasn’t quite gone Babestation yet, and a fully nude Tom remains elusive, unless you Google!

Taboo airs on Saturdays on BBC1. Watch the trailer here:
