Hardy shows off freshly shaved head

Tom Hardy showed off a new shorn look at the world premiere of his new film Warrior.

The British star, looking smart in a black suit, laughed and smiled as he greeted co-stars Joel Edgerton, Jennifer Morrison and director-writer Gavin O'Connor on the black carpet at the Arclight Hollywood in Los Angeles.

The 33-year-old, who portrays a former Mixed Martial Arts fighter in the film - had only high praise for Joel as his screen brother in the fighting drama, telling Just Jared: "What I think is so lovely about Joel is that he has a tremendous sense of humility and kindness - there's a genuine kindness in Joel.

"He has a very reliable energy of kindness and genuine warmth and care. I think that's really important!" he added.

And Tom, who has been filming Christopher Nolan's third and final instalment of the Batman series The Dark Knight Rises, complimented Gavin on getting the balance just right in Warrior, which opens in UK cinemas on September 21.

"He's managed to underpin a fight movie with a really strong drama as well. It caters to two different types of audiences - those who want to get a bit more substance from an action film or a fight film and a lot of us just want to see fighting!" he joked.
