Just A Reminder That Tom Hardy Won A Modelling Contest Wearing An Alice Band

Oh, and he won a toolbox.

Tom Hardy: Actor, model, feminist, general living GOD.

He just DOES things to us, by simply existing.

Now let's rewind back to 1998, when Tom appeared on The Big Breakfast, in their search to find the next big model.

And in these glorious photos, you can see that Tom's ~ensemble~ of choice was a pair of baggy trousers and a fetching Alice band. And yet he still somehow manages to pull it off.

But this magnificent reminder doesn't end there, because there's also a video of Tom strutting his stuff down a catwalk as part of the competition.

While he does this, Johnny Vaughn reads out a bunch of facts about him, including the fact he's 20 years old, a Virgo, and a drama student who loves Eddie Izzard and hates football. So now you know.

He also said Gary Oldman is his hero which is pretty cute seeing as they starred in Child 44together years later.

He's then asked a few questions by the judges...

Before rejoining the other contestants, and making this A+ face at the camera.

A star from day one.

Before the winner is announced. And it's only flipping Tom Hardy.

Which he seems overly happy about.

And then he retrieves his prize, which, inexplicably is a toolbox.

But he seems pretty happy with that, too so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

You can watch the full video in all its glory, here.
