Tom Hardy has admitted her fears he’s damaged his body by undergoing so many physical transformations for film roles.

The actor has said he is worried his body will “collapse” if he puts on more weight, having dramatically bulked up to play an MMA fighter in ‘Warrior’ and Bane in the Batman film ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in the past.

Tom added his body now sometimes “clicks in places it shouldn’t” and admitted he finds it a little more difficult to carry his children than he used to.

Tom is currently appearing in the BBC One drama ‘Taboo’, and recently revealed we almost saw a whole lot more of him

Tom plays anti-hero James Delaney in the new series, which required him to flash rather a lot of flesh, although if he’d had his way, we would have gone the full monty.

“You’re lucky there was a loin cloth because I didn’t want one,” he told the BBC.

“It’s not a period drama until someone gets naked and covers themselves in blood. At least you’re showing willing.”

He continued: “I was in Tilbury, in the moat, in the docks, with nothing on. We were trying to eke out drama from any opportunity and none of that makes the cut.”

‘Taboo’ continues on Saturday (21 January) at 9.15pm on BBC One.
