He has since been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, two Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, and two British Academy Film Awards, and received the 2011 BAFTA Rising Star Award.
In 1998, Hardy won The Big Breakfast’s Find Me a Supermodel competition at the age of 21, earning him a brief contract with Models 1.
Hardy joined Drama Centre London in September 1998, and was taken out early after winning the part of US Army Private John Janovec in the HBO-BBC mini-series Band of Brothers.
He made his feature film debut in Ridley Scott’s war thriller Black Hawk Down (2001).
Hollywood superstar Tom Hardy, who has featured in films such as Inception, Dunkirk and Venom, as well as popular Netflix series Peaky Blinders, took part in a martial arts competition, which he ultimately won.
As per a report in The Guardian on Tuesday, the 45-year-old actor participated at the 2022 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Open Championship, a competition organised by the Ultimate Martial Arts Championships in Milton Keynes.
Hardy, who appeared in a blue gi took down all his opponents and left the spectators entertained.
“Everyone recognised him but he was very humble and was happy to take time out for people to take photographs with him,” a spokesperson for the championships was quoted as saying in the report. “It was a real pleasure to have him compete at our event,” he added.
Danny Appleby, the actor’s opponent at the tournament’s semifinal, lauded Hardy for putting up a great show while speaking to local media. “I was shell-shocked,” Appleby said. “[Hardy] said, ‘Just forget it’s me and do what you would normally do.’”
Continuing further Appleby stated the actor to be “a really strong guy … You wouldn’t think it with him being a celebrity.”

The 45-year-old English actor won gold at the 2022 UMAC Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Open Championships on Saturday after quietly entering the competition.
While bystanders and other competitors were left stunned when Hardy turned up at the school hall in Milton Keynes, England, organizers said he was simply “keeping his word.”
Mohamed Itoumaine, a referee and spokesman for the tournament’s organizer, Ultimate Martial Arts Championships, told CNN on Wednesday that Hardy had agreed to take part in the competition following his low-key appearance at the REORG Open Jiu-Jitsu Championship last month. Itoumaine was a referee at the earlier tournament in Wolverhampton.
“I was really excited and impressed because he told me at the championship that ‘I’m coming to yours next’ and kept his word,” Itoumaine said.”It is very hard to get a famous person to come to a local competition because their schedules are so busy.”
Itoumaine said UMAC kept the Hollywood star’s attendance quiet to avoid adding any pressure on Hardy ahead of the competition tournament.
