Tom Hardy is one of Hollywood's biggest actors. Most recently, he starred in the movie Legend where he plays a bisexual gangster and many critics praise his performances ever since he debuted in the HBO series Band of Brothers. Hardy recently sat down with Variety to discuss his next biggest challenge, working with Leonardo DiCaprio in the movie The Revenant.  Tom Hardy Jaguar PS / Shutterstock.com

Hardy explains that Leonardo DiCaprio personally contacted him to work on the movie.

Yeah. He called me up and said, “Dude, I know you’re about to do something where you’re jumping out of helicopters and shooting guns and shit. But before you do that, I need you to take a look at this script. It’s f—ing awesome.” That’s how it started—“It’s going to be f—ing awesome.” Then I had a meeting with Alejandro, talking through the character. I ended up getting the job.

But, Hardy explained after getting the job, filming was extremely difficult.

Every single day was about endurance, and things changing at the last minute because of weather or location. It’s quite a big epic to wrangle. It was six to eight hours of rehearsal a day, and then we’d shoot for an hour and a half to get this particular piece of movement. If we didn’t get it, we’d have to come back the next day. It was an interesting procedure.

Hardy also explained why he quit working on Suicide Squad. 

As a result of the lack of snow, production had to stop in Calgary and resume months later in Argentina. Because of the delays, you had to drop out of “Suicide Squad.” It punched right into that, yeah. That got derailed for me. Was I bummed? Of course I was. I hate fucking losing work. I kept bemoaning that they were losing me significant money on a daily basis. Actually, it was good for my character.
