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.

“In the film, your character Ronnie is very open about his sexuality,” Coleman started. “But given interviews you've done in the past, your own sexuality seems a bit more ambiguous. Do you find it hard for celebrities to talk to media about their sexuality?”

“What on Earth are you on about?” Hardy asked.

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 sexuality?”

“Um, sure,” Coleman answered.

“Why?” Hardy answered, then added, “Thank you.”

Hardy is expecting his second child, his first with second wife Charlotte Riley.
