It’s nice to know Hardy is a man of his word

Full-time actor and part-time moped vigilante Tom Hardy has finally made good on a bet he made with former co-star Leonardo DiCaprio all the way back in 2015. A recent Facebook post showed Hardy sporting a bicep tattoo that reads — in DiCaprio’s own handwriting — ”Leo Knows All.”

The tattoo has its origins on the set of Alejandro González Iñárritu The Revenant, in which Hardy played dickhead fur trapper John Fitzgerald across from DiCaprio’s bearded and bear-mauled Hugh Glass. The Departed leading man bet his co-star that he’d nab an Oscar nomination for the role, with permanent ink on the line.

Because DiCaprio is the only one who ate a moose heart for real, he’s the one that actually took home the statue, but Hardy did earn a Best Supporting Actor nod at the 88th Academy Awards.

“I haven’t got it yet, because it sucks,” Hardy told Esquire UK in 2016. “He wrote, in this really shitty handwriting: ‘Leo knows everything.’ Ha! I was like, ‘OK, I’ll get it done, but you have to write it properly.'”
