Tom Hardy kept busy during preparations for 2011’s Warrior, but the film’s grueling training and restrictive diet proved too much for him.

Whether he plays Bane in The dark knight risesAlfie in Peaky Blinders or Max in Mad Max: Anger RoadTom Hardy always breathes life into his roles and empathizes with the characters he plays. There is a reason why audiences are often so pleased with his performances, whether it is in a TV show or a movie.

Hardy usually gives it his all when he takes on a new role, and that was no different at a time when he was not yet such a well-known actor. Starring in Gavin O’Connor’s sports drama was a real challenge for the actor, who had to put in a lot of preparation for his role as a former soldier turned MMA fighterthe artist said during an interview with The Guardian.

I did two hours of boxing a day, two hours of muay thai, two hours of ju jitsu followed by two hours of choreography and two hours of weightlifting seven days a week for three months. So come on! You really have to want to do that, so it was a challenge.

So there was a lot of training, which must have been tiring. However, the actor was not afraid of the challenge and was ready for it, as he was nervous about his role in the 2011 film Warrior. However, he later allowed that the demanding training and diet affected him and caused him to become “bad-tempered, aggressive and unreasonable”.

99 percent of the job is portraying other people’s insecurities, and it went completely f**king off! I felt anxious all the time because I’m very sensitive and I hate making people angry – but I’ve f**ked a lot of people up Warrior.

So it seems that on the occasion of Warrior Hardy learned his limits, how much he can mentally sacrifice for a role. In this situation it was too much for him, making him downright unbearable, which can’t have been easy for the actors who performed with him and the crew who worked with him.
