10 Actors who Got Huge For Movie Roles

Tom Hardy

When you think of Tom Hardy, you’re probably picturing the muscle-bound brawler from Warrior or The Dark Knight Rises (right), but back when he shot 2006’s Scenes of a Sexual Nature, he was just your average bloke.

That all changed when he started working out with personal trainer Pnut for Warrior, who kept Hardy in the gym all day and added even more bulk to him when he played Batman’s fearsome foe Bane. Now Hardy is so bonded with Pnut that he considers the man his closest friend and spiritual advisor, and made the personal trainer the godfather of his young son.
