Leo DiCaprio & Tom Hardy premiere ‘The Revenant’ in LA: grumpy or hot?


The first premiere of The Revenant was held last night in LA. ‘Tis the season for bear rape. Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy got all dressed up and walked the red carpet – together, for a moment, and then they walked separately. I think Leo made sure to get on the carpet early so every media outlet would get a few quotes from him, but it doesn’t look like Tom Hardy did the same. Speaking of Leo and quotes, an E! reporter asked Leo point-blank about the bear-rape stuff and Leo said, “I have no idea where these ridiculous stories came from, what you can do when you hear stuff like that?”

As for Tom and Leo… well, obviously, I know which one I would choose in a “Who would you rather?” battle. I think most sentient women would prefer a roll in the hay with The Bloke. But I’ll give Leo something: I like him this way, shilling for an Oscar, with a whiff of try-hard about him. He’s usually Too Cool For School, too busy trying to be Jack Nicholson. Seeing Leo’s try-hard vibe is the closest we’ll get to seeing him vulnerable. If you couldn’t tell, I’m enjoying Leo’s Oscar campaign. I hope it never ends. Both Leo and Tom were flying solo last night – no wives or girlfriends allowed on the red carpet for their Boy Drama In the Woods movie.

God, the Bloke looks great here, right? He claims he never punched Alejandro Inarritu. Do you believe him? I do not. I think Tom seems very grumpy about this film for good reason.

PS… We got a tip from a reader last week that Tom has a suspicious new tattoo reading “Marlow.” Our reader (thanks April!) thinks Marlow might be the name of Tom’s new baby. We still don’t know the sex of the baby, right? Marlow is a unisex name, but Sienna Miller named her daughter Marlowe and I feel like it’s a name that tilts more towards a girl’s name now.

    I say hot and Leo hasn’t seemed hot to me in a while. Tom hardy always is hot.

    • Original T.C. says:

      It’s the premiere rapid weight loss “cleanse” and “male facial” that actors undergo but the press pretends not to notice or comment on.

  2. Kitty says:

    Hmmm. Leo’s Oscar snubs all these years have given me a soft spot in my heart for him.I’m over his looks, and have been for ages. And Tom Hardy looks so small beside him. A pocket-sized bloke. I had to double take for a moment because in one of the pictures, it looked like he was standing on Leo’s foot, LOL.

  3. Marty says:

    I’d still take a grumpy bloke over a no sense of humor Leo, but I guess fake bear rape will do that to a man.

  4. kri says:

    The Bloke wins every time. Leo has always grossed me out, even before his devolution into a bloated, arrogant human Grumpy Cat. Beg for that Oscar, Boat Boy. Beg!

  5. Sixer says:

    Who upset The Bloke? He looks extraordinarily chippy here! I could soothe him, of course.

  6. Here or there says:

    Tom Hardy with the beard + suit = yes that. Leo who?

  7. MonicaQ says:

    I’m going to call a mulligan. Neither are doing it for me.

    • vauvert says:

      Ditto. Tom gets a lot of love on this site (and many others, I’m sure) but I never see it. Honestly.
      Wondering if the decision to premiere at the same time with SW was the sort of counter intuitive marketing that allies them to say “art, movie making, keeping it real” we don’t expect great numbers but surely, surely the academy can give us the statues for our terrific efforts in terrible weather blah blah blah.

    • Jellybean says:

      I agree! I like Hardy as an actor, but there is something about his soft pouty lips and soft voice that I find a bit of a turn off. I like a bit of rough but I don’t see that in Hardy. Leo has never really done anything for me, but again I do generally enjoy him as an actor.

  8. Cluelesswonder says:

    Tom looks like he has tiny antlers coming out of the side of his head.

  9. Lilacflowers says:

    I’m an artist! I’ve been subjected to questions about bear rape! I bit a raw bison liver! I wore an elk carcass! I grew a beard! I got wet! I don’t do superhero movies! I never smile! What more do you want? I DEMAND MY OSCAR!!!!

  10. ell says:

    while i think di caprio is ridiculous as a person (i thought he was interesting for a minute, when there were rumours he was dating rihanna, otherwise he seems to be the worst), i think he’s a great actor and i know this is an unpopular opinion around here. tom hardy is even better though, and bless him and his grumpiness.

    • Pondering thoughts says:

      @ ell

      I agree with you but would like to make the point that in the end nobody really knows what is going on in Leo’s private life. I sometimes doubt certain stories or blind items. Whereas other actors and singers have had suits filed against them for domestic violence and stuff … . Dicaprio has for sure angered the fossil fuel industry so I expect them to go for revenge.

      Yep, he is a really good actor.

  11. Ugh says:

    If an actress looked this constipated, she’d get so much hate for looking like she’s not grateful to be there/looking miserable/not smiling. smh at society.

  12. Size Does Matter says:

    How tall are they?

  13. Norman Bates's Mother says:

    In my opinion Domhnall Gleeson looked the best at this premiere, in a wine colored suit and with a smile on his face. I wish he was an option for “Who would you rather?”

  14. Elle says:

    Yes, I prefer Leo in his ‘try hard’ way.

  15. Minxx says:

    I think that bear should lawyer up and sue Leo for dragging his name through the mud ;)
    but seriously, whoever came up with the fake bear rape story deserves an Oscar this year. Leo looks constipated, bloated and grumpy. I’m so over him. Tom Hardy looks fine but does nothing for me.

  16. Yepisaidit says:

    Both are overrated AF!

  17. saltandpepper says:

    They’re both sizzling, but the bromance isn’t strong here. Leo, always Leo :-)

  18. KCAT says:

    Maybe it’s the lights. They look fine . This might be your year, Leo. They’re both dicent actors. I’m not a huge fan but they seem like cool guys.

  19. isabelle says:

    Tom always looks a bit grumpy until he smiles and then looks like a happy kid. Tom makes it look like he is the only person in the picture, he dominates.

  20. Bluevelvet says:

    Tom Hardy is absolutely to die for. Great actor, have yet to be disappointed in one of his roles on screen. I’m dying to see the movie where he plays the identical twin Kray brothers… is it “Legend?” At any rate, now THAT’S Oscar material… Leo will win eventually, maybe even for the “Revenant.” I think Leo’s time is near.

    Tom Hardy will be an Oscar winner, no doubt in my mind. Just watch his body of work, incredible… Oh, and Tommy all the way… sizzle sexy pouty attitude, I’ll take it!!!!

  21. Yeahiknow says:

    I say hot. I know Leo isn’t everyone’s fave on this site, but I think what he kept in the spotlight this long is the man is actually talented. Dispute one role or another, there is at least one you can think of where anyone thinks he showed true acting range. I think he’s brilliant. I don’t agree w his modelizing, but who really cares. He’s not really hurting anyone. And for those that keep saying he was never attractive:


    Just tell me what is beautiful then.

  22. Anare says:

    Grumpy or hot? LOL! Both! TH just looks a little dangerous to me. Makes him even hotter. 😅

  23. Dorky says:

    DiCaprio : p*ssy posse.
    Hardy: dog friends.
    Pretty easy to see who wins the hot contest. (Um, Hardy, in case you didn’t know.)

  24. Christina says:

    Leo, always & forever! Tom is hot too. I would take both if I could, but made to choose, it will always be Leo. Leo has deserved an Oscar for years. He is an incredible actor. His model dating and Nicholson-eque ways have nothing to do with that. Nicholson is also an incredible actor. Leo does smile and does have a sense of humor. If you are a fan of his & have followed his career for a long time, you would realize that he goes through phases. He is a human being afterall. Do we all smile and laugh all the time? Anyhow, Leo has some “douchey” qualities, but I have met less talented and less beautiful men who are WAY more douchey than he ever will be and they are not even famous actors, just regular everyday dudes. I think Leo’s lifestyle is blown out of proportion in the press. He is just doing what he wants and living his bachelor life. That is his prerogative. He does a lot of charity work and has some real passion for world issues. He might spend lavishly on his lifestyle etc etc, but he also put his money to great use with all the environmental charities he supports. Everyone leave Leo aloonnnneeeee! Leave him alooooneee!!! :P

    • MrsBPitt says:

      Totally agree…Love Leo…fantastice actor! Hope he wins an Oscar!!!

    • Pondering thoughts says:

      I am not really willing to give in to the saying “do as you want to” just like that. Leo’s affairs / relationships though are at best morally questionable but not legally. No domestic violence and no drug stories and such. So what?

      He is a very good actor. I hope to see the Revenant soon and I bet Leo’s performance is great.

    good lord… that tom is pure sex on a stick. i’d climb that like a house on fire…

    The only hot guy of the bunch is Inarritu.
