Tom Hardy got a hilariously awful tattoo after losing a bet with Leonardo DiCaprio.
And it is really bad.
Tom Hardy and Leo DiCaprio first met on the set of Inception, the 2010 Christopher Nolan film where Leo steals information by diving into their dreams. Hardy had a lesser role in that movie, but it provided the two with a working relationship and laid the groundwork for a true bromance on the set of the 2015 film, The Revenant.
The Revenant was the film that finally gave Leo his Oscar, with the veteran actor acknowledging Hardy’s performance in his acceptance speech. "The Revenant was a product of the tireless efforts of an unbelievable cast and crew I got to work alongside,” Leo said at the time. “First off, to my brother in this endeavor, mister Tom Hardy. Tom, your fierce talent on-screen can only be surpassed by your friendship off-screen."
That friendship may have become slightly strained after a bet the pair made before the Oscars that year.
As revealed in a 2016 interview with Esquire magazine, the two made a bet on whether or not Hardy would get an Oscar nod for best supporting actor. Hardy said he wouldn’t, while DiCaprio said that he would. The winner of the bet would then choose a tattoo for the other to get done.
Hardy is no stranger to tattoos. He’s got a “London skyline, a Chinese dragon, his wife's name (and his ex-wife's initials), a Madonna and child, and a Buddha with an AK-47,” as revealed in the article, but the tattoo Leo told him to get after Hardy was nominated for best supporting actor was so awful he kept putting it off.

"I haven't got it yet," Hardy said in the interview, "because it sucks."
Indeed it did. Leo’s design, as written on a Post-it note, was simply “Leo Knows Everything”. "He wrote, in this really s----- handwriting: 'Leo knows everything.' Ha! I was like, 'OK, I'll get it done, but you have to write it properly.'"
It looks like Hardy was true to his word since a photo recently surfaced showing the Oscar-nominated actor with the words “Leo Knows All” written on his right arm.
Not quite the same as “Leo Knows Everything”, but it’s close enough.
