Christopher Nolan Reveals Why He Always Covers Tom Hardy’s Face

Tom Hardy is by far one of the more attractive men in Hollywood today, but he is also an actor that typically takes on roles that involve having his face covered.

Hardy has starred in a couple Nolan films, but more recently, he is in his third Nolan film. In the film Dunkirk, he plays as a Royal Air Force pilot who spends almost the whole film wearing an oxygen mask.

The director finally unveiled to the Press Association why he once again chose to hide Hardy’s face in Dunkirk.

“I was pretty thrilled with what he did in The Dark Knight Rises with two eyes, a couple of eyebrows and a bit of forehead so I thought let’s see what he can do with no forehead, no real eyebrows, maybe one eye.

Of course, Tom, being Tom, what he does with single eye acting is far beyond what anyone else can do with their whole body.

That is just the unique talent of the man, he’s extraordinary.”

Nolan is correct! Hardy does certainly have the hardest working eyes in Hollywood but he continues to blow us away with each performance even though his face is hidden.
