Following his performance, Bronson took to Instagram to share a backstage photo with the Venom,Dark Knight Rises and Revenant star, writing in the caption, “THE CHUBBY ONE AND THE REAL ONE. LONDON 22. MEN.”
Tom Hardy even made an appearance as a narrator in Action Bronson’s “Golden Eye” music video in 2020, reading a passage from Olaf Stapledon’s 1932 novel, Last Men in London.
“The story of your species is indeed a tragic story, for it closes with desolation,” he reads. “Your part in that story is both to strive and to fail in a unique opportunity, and so to set the current of history toward disaster. But think not therefore that your species has occurred in vain, or that your own individual lives are futile.”
The British actor was also mentioned at the end of Action Bronson’s “Bonzai” from 2017’s Blue Chips 7000 project.
“Seen Tom Hardy on the street a few weeks ago,” the outro says. “Tom Hardy knew what a real cowboy was. Jimmy Page and Led Zeppelin were the last ones with this much sauce.”
