Actor Tom Hardy made one young journalist's worst nightmare come true, as he refused to answer his question at a press conference.

Last week, tennis ace Serena Williams left a reporter lost for words as she admitted she was bored by the unimaginative questions and would rather be in bed.

Now another journalist has been left red faced, as a high profile figure burned their question at a press conference during the Toronto International Film Festival.

Graeme Coleman from the LGBT Site Daily Xtra pressed actor Tom Hardy about why he has tended to deflect attention from his sexual orientation.

"In the film, your character Ronnie is very open about his sexuality but given interviews you've done in the past, your own sexuality seems a bit more ambiguous."

"Do you find it hard for celebrities to talk to media about their sexuality," Graeme asks.

Visibly unimpressed, the 37-year-old married actor stared at the reporter and retaliated, "What on Earth are you talking about?" to which there was some laughter in the audience.

The exchange only got more awkward as the two carried on speaking.

Watch the moment, below.
