Bane Actor Tom Hardy Turns Superhero to Stop Thief

“The Dark Knight Rises” star Tom Hardy reportedly apprehended a fleeing moped thief last weekend after what one London newspaper characterized as a “Hollywood-style chase.”

The Sun reports that the actor, who played the villainous Bane in Christopher Nolan’s 2012 film, was walking through southwest London last Sunday afternoon when a pair of teenagers crashed into a car on an allegedly stolen bike. Hardy chased after one of the fleeing suspects on foot, vaulting walls before catching the teen “by the scruff of the neck and [patting] him down for concealed weapons.”

“It was mental – like he’d switched to superhero mode in an action movie,” one witness told the newspaper. “Two boys on the nicked moped had jumped a red light and smashed into a car. Tom must have been walking down the road. He went off like a shot in pursuit and looked furious. If the kid had been dumb enough to resist I reckon Tom would have given him a good hiding.”

Police confirmed to BBC News that Hardy did indeed capture one of the suspects. Both teens were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries, and charged with theft of a motor vehicle, among other offenses. However, it’s worth noting a woman has now stepped forward to insist that she, and not Hardy, was responsible for catching the thief.

The 39-year-old Hardy, who recently starred in “The Revenant” and the TV drama “Taboo,” reunites with Nolan this summer in “Dunkirk.”
