Tom Hardy and Elton John (Credit: DDA Public Relations)Tom Hardy is taking Method acting to a whole new level — and by "whole new level" we mean raiding Elton John's closet.
The 36-year-old "Dark Knight Rises" and "Inception" star will play as the music icon in the upcoming biopic, "Rocketman," and as part of his preparation, he's been wearing the singer's actual clothes. He even asked to borrow Elton's watch.
The pair met at Cannes back in May, and reportedly really hit it off. We're guessing it was sometime after that when Hardy asked Captain Fantastic if he could try on a few things. Apparently, the London-born Hardy has a penchant for the singer's distinctive Adidas tracksuits. And while Elton has been criticized for this ... um ... "style," it's probably worth noting that he does occasionally class up these athletic duds by pairing them with designer sneakers priced at nearly $600. No word on what kind of kicks Hardy sports with these stripes.
