British actor Tom Hardy on Sunday
rebuffed a reporter's question about his sexuality.
Graeme Coleman of the LGBT publication
Daily Xtra asked the question during a press conference at the
Toronto Film Festival for the film Legend, in which Hardy
plays identical twin crime bosses Ronald and Reginald Kray.

Coleman answered that he was referring
to a 2010 Attitude magazine interview in which Hardy allegedly
admitted to having sexual relations with other men. Hardy later
claimed that he had been misquoted.
“I don't find it difficult for
celebrities to talk about their sexuality,” Hardy replied after
Coleman repeated his question. “Are you asking me about my
“Um, sure,” Coleman answered.
“Why?” Hardy answered, then added,
Hardy is expecting his second child,
his first with second wife Charlotte Riley.
