The reason Tom lost that bet is because he was being modest about his acting talent, which is also the most Tom Hardy thing I've ever heard.
And the tattoo Leo designed for him is just the words: "Leo knows everything," which is the most Leonardo DiCaprio thing I've ever heard.
The 39-year-old English actor explained the whole incident in a recent interview with Esquire.
Here's what happened: Tom didn't think he would get an Oscar nomination for his supporting role in "The Revenant," because apparently he doesn't read any Oscar prediction posts, ever.
Leo bet him that he would get the nomination, because Leo actually knows how the award season works.
Obviously, Tom got the nomination, so as promised, Leo designed a tattoo for him.
Tom described the tattoo to Esquire, saying,
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.'
Apparently, Tom has not yet gotten these immortal words etched into his body yet.
I haven't got it yet, because it sucks.
I mean, fair, but a deal's a deal, Tom. Just get it really tiny on one of your pecs, between the bird and the Union Jack. No one will even notice!
Of course, Tom is a little busy at the moment, with his 1-year-old child and his dog and all.
And he's also doing that BBC drama, "Taboo," all about the Congo, British colonialism and other fun stuff like that.
But still, how long does it take to get a tattoo, like 20 minutes? Three hours?
This is a serious question — I've never gotten a tattoo and have no idea how long it takes.
Anyway, I'll be studying shirtless pictures of Tom Hardy a lot more closely now, and I invite you all to join me.
