Awkward! Tom Hardy slams questions about sexuality.

Appearing at a Q & A at the Toronto International Film Festival to promote Legend, a film about the infamous Kray brothers, Hardy was left unimpressed when one journalist described his sexuality as “ambiguous”. “In the film, your character Ronnie is very open about his sexuality.Actor Tom Hardy speaks during the ‘Legend’ press conference at TIFF Bell Lightbox on September 13, 2015 in Toronto, Canada.

Hardy immediately responded, “What on earth are you on about?” as the reporter went on to note a 2008 interview with British gay lifestyle magazine Attitude, in which Hardy reportedly admitted to flings with men when he was younger. The reporter said, “I’m wondering if you find it difficult for celebrities to talk about their sexuality,” to which Hardy replied, “I don’t find it difficult for celebrities to talk about their sexuality.

Are you asking me about my sexuality?” The reporter was referring to an interview Hardy had done with Attitude magazine in 2008 in which he was asked if he’d ever had sexual relations with a man. “As a boy? As expected, there was a scramble this morning to buy tickets for U2’s Irish concerts, with 40,000 tickets for the Dublin dates selling out in 35 minutes and 17,000 tickets for the Belfast dates snapped up within hours of going on sale.

The band will play four gigs in Dublin and two in Belfast in November, and tickets were only available from the venue box offices, Dublin’s 3Arena and Belfast’s SSE Arena, and Ticketmaster online. But it doesn’t do it for me.” The British star married actress Charlotte Riley in 2014, and the couple are expecting their first child together (Hardy has a son from a previous relationship). After the controversy surrounding the release of new album Songs of Innocence on iTunes and the cycling injury Bono sustained in New York last year – which saw him break his arm in six places – the iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour has been hailed a triumph, which more than lives up to its title.

In keeping with the narrative of the new album, the tour setlists bring the band back to their early days on Dublin’s Northside and see them dusting off surprises from the back catalogue. The stage set-up is split into three sections: one for the Innocence part of the show, another for the Experience section, and a walkway that spans each venue with a huge, double-sided video screen above it.

The tour has seen arguably the greatest interaction between band and audience to date, with fans and members of tribute acts joining U2 on stage at various points since the shows began in the US in May.
