He’s at it again!
Of course one adorable photo of Tom Hardy with a dog wasn’t enough, so The Dark Knight Rises star struck an even more precious pose Thursday while continuing to shoot his new movie Animal Rescue in New York.
Not content with a mere cuddle this time, Hardy puckered his lips and possibly prepared to plant a wet one on his furry friend – who seemed to return the affection! Pouting right back, the pup leaned his head out of the actor’s coat and looked ready for a smooch.
Whether two actually locked lips is unknown, but one thing’s for certain: It’s hard to tell who’s the luckier one in this scenario, Hardy or the puppy.
