Quote from the interview:
Masculine, butch groups of blokes together—it’s never really been my cup of tea. Playing a gay man in a Guy Ritchie movie is a finger up to that whole attitude of men talking about men doing men’s things, which is so fucking narrow-minded. Handsome Bob is what a man should be—except for the part of him taking a crowbar to the back of someone’s head.
"I sat down and got changed into my outfit and went on set, and this huge leaning figure turns up that’s about ten foot tall, eight feet wide with huge pointy ears," Hardy says. "I looked at him and he goes, ‘Oh yeah. I’m Batman.’’”
That’s fucking rubbish
