Cuteness overload: Tom Hardy proclaims himself a dog lover
A handsome man and an adorable dog - there are few cuter combinations.

He brought Zora to the film’s premiere, which was just the beginning of what seems to be a new tradition for the British actor.
Hardy also recently brought his dog Woody to the premiere of his newest film, Legend.
He recently recalled his old drama teacher saying, "I remember when you used to walk into class with your dog in one hand and a can of Coke in the other."
"Max was my support unit, it’s like I had a focus.
"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.”
