Tom Hardy Talks Cardigan Swagger!

Tom Hardy‘s latest movie Lawless sees him playing a bootlegger brother alongside Shia LaBeouf, Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska.

So what was the key to looking tough but likeable opposite bad guys Guy Pearce and Gary Oldman? Tom thinks it was his cardigan, or ‘hardigan’ as those in the know are calling it now…

Tom told GQ: “It [the cardigan] wasn’t in the script. The only way you can make him a likeable gangster is by finding his femininity. He’s a mother [to his brothers]. I had a big load of batteries in the pockets, so it hung down. I looked like your granddad, but I had a swagger. A cardigan with a swagger, right? Can you imagine getting knocked out by a guy in a cardigan?”

We’ll never look at cardigans the same way again. You can see the film for yourself at cinemas from September 7! BS
