In 2008 Hardy stared as Handsome Bob the gay gangster in guy Ritchie's film Rocknrolla. Then in 2009 he played the title character in the film Bronson all about the life of the real English prisoner Charles Bronson.
Although Tom often portrays a bad guy on screen he has a softer personality in real life. He and Rachel have two rescue dogs together, one of which he appeared in an advert for PETA with to promote the adoption of pets. He also has appeared twice on the cbeebies children's programme Bedtime Stories, once on New Years Eve and once on Valentines day which was a treat for many of Hardy's adult fans as well the the children the show is aimed at.
