Tom Hardy just opened up about his bromance with Prince Harry

And it's hilarious.

And it's hilarious.

We’re all for blossoming celebrity bromances, from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck to Barack Obama and Joe Biden. But we think we may have just found our new favourite duo in Tom Hardy and his royal pal Prince Harry.

Hardy recently chatted to Esquire about his long-standing relationship with the Prince, even calling him a 'fucking legend'. Despite this admission, the actor went on to explain how his friendship with Harry is actually 'deeply private' and refused to discuss it any further.

The men have been friends for a while now and have been spotted spending time together at several events including the Audi Polo Challenge in London back in 2016. They first met in 2010 when Hardy became an ambassador for The Prince's Trust. Along with brother William, Harry also had time to hang out with Tom when he filmed a cameo for Star Wars: The Last Jedi (it was later cut, however).

Hardy even flew over from filming in New Orleans earlier this year to attend Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle with his actor wife Charlotte Riley.

We’re thinking a double date could be on the cards…
