TGIF: Tom Hardy is letting the pit bull puppy live in his jacket now

Does it get any better than this? I really think Tom Hardy is in love with this pit bull puppy. The pit bull puppy is Tom Hardy’s new best friend in the whole world. Anyway, these are some new photos of Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and THE PUPPY in New York yesterday, where they’re all filming Animal Rescue. Last week we had some lovely images of Tom and the puppy too, and I’m filling out today’s post with some of the photos from last week too. The photos from yesterday have the puppy living inside of Tom’s coat. The photos from last week have Tom carrying the puppy outside of his coat.

You can see more gorgeous photos of Tom, Noomi and the puppy here. I like that even when Noomi is holding the dog, Tom is still touching the puppy, stroking his head or making sure he’s okay. I would have thought that dog trainers and dog handlers would want (or need) to take the puppy away in between set-ups, but maybe people think that if the dog gets acclimated to Noomi and Tom, the dog will “perform” better in the movie.

Sigh… TGIF Tom & Puppy! I’ll update if we get more photos in.

    Seriously, first Grumpy Cat and now the Tom Hardy-Puppy cuteness? Is this the best Friday ever? It is, isn’t it. 😀

  3. sirsnarksalot says:

    OMG he needs to adopt that puppy and then set up a live feed cam of him cuddling and wrestling with the puppy all day. Let’s start raising funds for this at Kickstarter!

    • Kaye says:

      Haha. This idea rules– I’m totally in!!!

    • Stormy says:

      I would totally pay to see that.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      How much? I’ll liquidate my checking account RIGHT. NOW.

      Let’s do it!!!
      I love puppies. I love the way he is cuddling that puppy…and the way his face looks in pain when the puppy is biting his hand (those teeth are like needles!)

      I snuggled my dog this morning, but these pictures are really making me wish that i could snuggle her again right now. Sigh. Dogs are awesome.

    • phlyfiremama says:

      Sign me up!! Dog help me, that is the cutest puppy ever~and for the first time, I think Tom Hardy is pretty doggone hot!!! Whats happening to me??!!

  4. Abra says:

    I can’t handle all the cuteness you’re throwing at me today!

  5. ALG says:

    I hope he considers adopting the puppy after this. It looks like it’s attached to him!

  6. Kaye says:

    Tom Hardy wins the Internet (again.)

  7. Green is Good says:

    GAAAH! My head is going to explode with the epic cuteness today!

  8. Alli says:

    This is Cumberbatch holding a baby level of insane adorableness. I don’t know that I could watch this for ~2 hours on a large screen without exploding into a big pile of rainbows and daisies.

    • T.Fanty says:

      It might actually be better. I worry less about the likelihood of Tom Hardy grabbing the dog and making a run for it. Cumby babies always look suspicious.

  9. Katy says:

    Thank you Kaiser!! You know how to make our day.

  10. Agnes says:

    omg, this puppy is seriously the cutest freaking thing ever.

  11. Mia 4S says:

    Tom, stop! I need to work today!!! 🙂

  12. Shira says:

    OMG stop stop being so adorable STOP!

  13. Michelle says:

    I just died. Cause of death: Too much cute.

  14. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Too amazing for words!We need to have a countdown going for when this movie is to be released! And he better freakin adopt that puppy after filming is done. They have grown so attached to each other!! PRECIOUSSSS

  15. Darkladi says:

    Great…I’m jealous of a puppy

  16. Post-It's says:

    He’s just messing with us now, right? Seriously, my vagina…

  17. Lilo says:

    My pants just exploded off my legs

  18. brin says:

    I want him…put the shanks down, I’m talking about the puppy.

  19. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Panty explosion.

    The ONLY thing hotter than Hardy is Hardy holding a baby animal.

    Oh sweet lawd, I need that man in between my thighs, let alone my life!

    Side note, I thought there were filming the movie outside of my office yesterday but it was only “Person of Interest”. My heart hurt so badly after that one. I need to ‘bump’ into him… *plots*

    • Marty says:

      You should! Lots of people have getting pictures with him lately and they all say he’s the sweetest!

    • T.Fanty says:

      Oh, they film that show in my neighborhood ALL the time and I cam never park my car because of it. I now refuse to watch that show on principle. I just to reject it because it was crap.

    • j.eyre says:

      Two things:

      I am really tired today and first read your last line as, “I need one of those *bump* into him plots” as if we could select “Rom-Com” as a life path. I think I would select “Cinderella Story” plot, myself. One that involved many shoes.

      Secondly, T.Fan – way to stick it to ’em, babe. I will continue to not know when it airs in solidarity.

  22. i'm french don't kill me says:

    the dog is too cute!(the story of the movie looks totally idiot also)

  23. Miss M says:

    OK Tom (Hardy), You won me over…

  24. Mauibound says:

    Squeeeeeeeeee! Off the meter!

  25. GoodCapon says:

    That photos of the them inside the pet store– were they shooting a scene?

    Oh and yeah, cute pup!

  26. KCO says:

    There is no way that this is his official instagram, but I love stalking his pictures on there! Its HardyThomas.

    Ok, back to instagram! Happy Friday, loves!!

  27. Lindsay says:

    Oh, would you look at that, my panties fell off!

  28. j.eyre says:

    Those photos should come with some kind of warning. I have held little to no opinion on Mr. Hardy… until that third photo.

  29. Julia says:

    I don’t like pit bulls… at all. But, adding Tom Hardy to a pit bull changes the equation

  30. KellyinSeattle says:

    I’m the only one, I think, who doesn’t think he’s a big deal. Sorry. I like the pick w/ the dog, though…reminds me of a guy I see often around here; a huge, muscular, like of like Hulk (not Hogan, the green one), and he always is cuddling his little girl and carrying her in a “fanny pack for kids?” cute.

    • Layale says:

      Kelly, count me in the minority with you. I’m not taken by him or Cumberbatch. The dog is cute, though.

  31. miriam says:


    Love him too much.

  32. skuddles says:

    Just warms my heart to see someone loving on their pet like that. Lucky puppy.

  33. whatthehell456 says:

    My ovaries just exploded…

  34. Lexi says:

    Tom hardy is gorgeous! I wanna live in his jacket 🙂

  35. teehee says:

    I so seriously consider/ed it for my guinea pigs— the only thing keeping me from making tham a swaddle/sling, is that they cant be potty trained. 😛

    • Hakura says:

      …My guinea pigs ARE potty trained O_O I don’t know HOW, but when we’re holding them, & they have to go, they bite our clothes (they never do that otherwise). I know it sounds insane, but we’ve had many guinea pigs, & *most* of them did let us know when they had to go.

      I haven’t had one go on me in *years*, & we always have at least 3. (I sound like a nut, I know xD)

      • teehee says:

        My one (of 3) will do that too. He naps with me all the time in my bed and always holds it, but it cant be more than 15 minutes. The other 2…. also males, I havent kept them out on my lap or in my bed that long to find out yet 😉

      • Hakura says:

        Aww =) I’ve done that with mine too! (We only get males too). This is a pic of one of mine taking a nap next to me on my bed –> Here <– I know it looks like he's dead, but I swear he isn't xD

        I can hold them for about a half-hour before they get squirmy, a little longer if there are bell peppers/carrots involved. =3 But they get jealous if I don't give them all attention, so I have to take turns =_='

  36. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Adorable! And the dog isn’t bad either. 😉

  37. MsJAPrufrock says:

    “Animal Rescue”–sound like a rom com! Rapace and Hardy seem cute together!

  38. The Original Mia says:

    I’m not a fan of pit bulls at all, but that puppy & Tom are so adorable together.

  39. Mouse says:

    Ooookay, guess who has a new set of pics for her screensaver!

  40. Ama says:

    I wish I could meet him!!!!

  41. Jennifer12 says:

    What pits are really like when they’re treated and raised right…. <3

  42. Mrs. Ari Gold says:

    Great post. More please of THE PUPPY!

  43. Amy says:

    If ya’ll are going to start posting pictures of “celebrity” Internet animals, you’re going to have to post pictures of Boo and Maru too (you posted pictures of Grumpy Cat). You know you want to. 🙂

  44. Chelsea's handler says:

    Animal Rescue will also feature Belgian Matthias Schoenaerts, who you should start covering more because his star is definitely on the rise.

  45. Cooie says:

    Absolutely adorable. Love him.
