Actor Tom Hardy has been busy proclaiming his love for dogs of all shapes and sizes.

The actor said that his canine friends have accompanied him to acting classes and film premieres, and his favorite roles are the ones that allow him to have a dog by his side.

Last year the Hollywood hunk spoke about his love for dogs when discussing his part in The Drop, James Gandolfini’s last role, which also starred an adorable, wiggly little pit bull named Zora.

"I had an identity and higher self-esteem because something relied on me and loved me constantly.

"I can’t stand those kind that fight their dogs, but I wonder how many sleep with their dogs under the covers at night?

"I’m very, very lucky that people – from 17 to now – have always allowed me to have my dog around.”
