Hunky actor Tom Hardy gained 30lbs of muscle to play violent arch rival Bane in the upcoming Batman film The Dark Knight Rises, but despite his imposing physique he reveals that he’s actually a big softie at heart.

In an interview with Company magazine, the 34-year-old described himself as “quite needy”, adding: "I was an only child so got a lot of attention from my mum. I think that is naturally going to transfer onto any poor woman who’s in my life.”

The Inception actor, who's engaged to actress Charlotte Riley, is glad to put his bachelor days behind him and settle down.

He told Company: “I actually think that dating can be a struggle, as I do demand a lot of fuss made of me! However, if you were my partner, you’d get a lot of attention back.”

But the in-demand actor is struggling to see his fiancée more than every three weeks at the moment, as he’s filming Mad Max: Fury Road in Australia.

Talking about his perfect date night, Tom revealed that he prefers, “Staying home and watching a movie."

He continued: "Does that sound boring? Well, boring is reliable, and if it means being useful, practical and caring, then I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it at all.”

Oh Tom, we don’t mind cuddling up in front of a DVD with you!
