My favourite story of the day so far. According to The Sun in the UK, Tom Hardy chased down a thief on a moped several blocks before pulling him down and waiting until the cops showed up.

A witness in Richmond, London, told yesterday how screen hardman Tom Hardy chased a thief through gardens and across a building site — before proudly announcing: “I caught the c-nt.”

He said Tom flew after the yob, who had crashed a stolen moped then fled.

The Legend, Batman and Taboo star vaulted walls as he sprinted after the crook — then grabbed him by the scruff of the neck and patted him down for concealed weapons.

Arun Pullen, 22, said: “It was mental – like he’d switched to superhero mode in an action movie. Two boys on the nicked moped had jumped a red light and smashed into a car.

“Tom must have been walking down the road. He went off like a shot in pursuit and looked furious. If the kid had been dumb enough to resist I reckon Tom would have given him a good hiding.”

1.Yob (I love this word.)
2. “I caught the c-nt.”


How is it that no one has any footage of this? I need to see Tom Hardy running faster than Tom Cruise, Ethan Hunting Tom Cruise better than Tom Cruise.

Unfortunately… it might not be true? Tom Hardy’s people have not commented. And Scotland Yard has released a statement:

"Officers happened to be present at the time of the collision. This was not a pursuit. The male motorcyclist was arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle and the male pillion passenger was arrested for taking a vehicle without consent.”

What do you mean there was no pursuit? So are you saying Tom Hardy wasn’t Ethan Hunt? Why can’t you just let us have this???
