Tom Hardy: All Smiles on "Animal Rescue" Set

Tom Hardy: All Smiles on

Giving a friendly smile and a wave to the pesky paparazzi, Tom Hardy worked on the set of “Animal Rescue” in New York City on Thursday (April 4).

The “Dark Knight Rises” star wore a dark hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, sneakers, and a backpack slung across his chest as he flashed his pearly whites amidst some facial scruff.

As previously reported by GossipCenter, earlier this week, the 35-year-old actor took time out from his shooting schedule to playfully pose with a young superfan.

Making a tough-guy face with a clenched fist, Tom knelt down with a small child dressed as his character Bane from the Batman film.
