Unmasked… Tom’s got licence to thrill fans

Breaking cover: Tom poses with a fan, sans mask PICTURE: SPLASH

HE IS tipped to be the next James Bond — and Tom Hardy showed how selfie-assured he can be when it comes to taking a risk.

Even though he was not wearing a mask, the screen heartthrob agreed to pose with a string of fans who spotted him out in Richmond, south-west London, yesterday.

After starring in Peaky Blinders and as Batman villain Bane, Hardy could have been out searching for a tux for his rumoured new role.

That’s because last month some bookies stopped taking bets on the 43-year-old being the star to replace Daniel Craig as 007.

Idris Elba, Richard Madden and James Norton were also linked to the role.
