29 Times Tom Hardy Was Goddamn Human Perfection In 2015

He's spent the year cuddling dogs and shutting down sexist questions. Oh, and taking his top off too.

1. This is Tom Hardy. The most perfect man in all the world. And in case you weren't aware, he reached his peak in 2015.

2. First of all, let's acknowledge how he's spent the past 12 months ruining suits for other men.

3. And he knew it. As he looked into your soul, he just knew the suit was giving you heart palpitations.

4. JFC, he wore the hell out of those suits.

5. But 2015 was also the year of Mad Max: Fury Road, during which he spent two hours looking like this.

6. That's right.

7. And each time he stared at you this intensely, you became suddenly grateful for the gift of sight.

8. You also kind of forgot how to breathe.

RIP you.

RIP you.

9. When he wasn't just walking round looking perfect, he spent a lot of 2015 talking about and cuddling dogs. It was almost enough to make your heart explode.

10. There was the time he brought his actual dog to the premiere of Legend.

11. Where they proceeded to pose together. It was impossible to decide who was cuter.

12. I mean, come on.

13. Then there was the time he explained why he loves dogs so much and we were all, "BRB crying."

And also: "WHAT'S WRONG WITH US WE WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU TOO FGS."

14. Oh, and 2015 was also the year when he cuddled a dog WHILE TOPLESS.

And we all died in unison again.

And we all died in unison again.

15. Then he kissed the dog and it was pretty damn cute, but let's not kid ourselves, we were all mainly looking at those rippling back muscles.

And the bulging biceps you'd like wrapped around you.

16. While we're on the subject of his top being off, let's appreciate this sight for a bit longer, shall we?

17. Remember when he grew this beard and it was everything?

18. Remember when he stepped in to do his bit for charity, because THAT'S JUST THE KIND OF GUY HE IS?

19. Remember when he put on a goddamn army uniform and it was just too much?

20. Remember the time he went to Five Guys and you found yourself jealous of a fucking cup?

But just when we were all, "Sure he looks hot as hell with his top off and he's cute when he's petting dogs, and yes I suppose he's a good actor too, but what else could he possibly bring to the table because this is a perfect man, right here."

21. Oh yeah, he proved himself to be a goddamn FEMINIST.

22. He revealed that he thinks traditional male leads should be rewritten for women and that shouldn't be a ~~big deal~~.

YAAASS Tom.

YAAASS Tom.

23. So when he was asked this frankly ridiculous question, he shut it down in the best possible way.

24. And he went on to say this.

25. Oh, and also that he has a “tremendous and profound respect” for women.

❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

26. But just when you were like, "OK, surely this is everything, he can't possibly get any more perfect," he went and stood up for the LGBT community.

27. First of all, he shut down this question about his sexuality.

28. And then responded saying this:

29. All of which proves that Tom Hardy is total perfection. Thanks for bringing joy to our lives in 2015.
