Hardy went on to explain DiCaprio had already come up with his winning tattoo. As explained by the actor to Esquire: “He wrote, in this really shitty handwriting: ‘Leo knows everything.’ Ha! I was like, ‘OK, I’ll get it done, but you have to write it properly.’” Certainly, it may be an unusual tattoo, but considering the unique choices of Hardy’s body art, a “Leo knows everything” tattoo may fit right in.
For those that have seen Hardy’s turn as John Fitzgerald in The Revenant, they may think the tattoo serves fitting as punishment for Hardy, despite it being just an acting role. DiCaprio’s character, Hugh Glass, is left for dead and betrayed by his friends — led by Fitzgerald — and barely survives. DiCaprio won the Oscar and now also gets to win his bet with Hardy, making this movie a huge victory for the long time actor.
Next, Hardy is set to star in the mini-series Taboo. The upcoming drama, about an adventurer in 1814, was created by Hardy and his father. The actor stars in the eight episode series and also serves as an executive producer. Taboo will air on BBC in Hardy’s home country, United Kingdom, and FX in America.
