Tom Hardy Reveals He Must Get a ‘Sh*tty’ Leonardo DiCaprio Tattoo After a Losing Bet About ‘The Revenant’

19 minutes ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Revenant” was one of the best films of 2015, earning 12 Oscar nominations and winning three Academy Awards, including best director for Alejandro G. Iñárritu and best actor for Leonardo DiCaprio.

Tom Hardy, who co-starred as John Fitzgerald, also received a nomination for his gritty performance. The actor revealed in an interview with Esquire that he didn’t believe he would get acknowledged by the Academy, even when DiCaprio was convinced he would. That was when Hardy decided to bet a tattoo of “the winner’s choosing” that he wouldn’t be nominated.

“[DiCaprio] wrote, in this really shitty handwriting: ‘Leo knows everything,’” he explained. “Ha! I was like, ‘Ok, I’ll get it done, but you have to write it properly.’” Hardy, of course, did nab the nomination for best supporting actor.

“I haven’t got it yet,” he said, “because it sucks.”

Tom Hardy Has to Get a Leonardo DiCaprio Tattoo for Losing Revenant Bet

2 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tattoos are possibly the worst wager in any bet, as Tom Hardy learned the hard way after shooting last year's acclaimed wilderness drama The Revenant. Either not feeling too sure about his work, or how the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences would respond, Hardy bet against himself getting an Oscar nomination while shooting on set. And he lost in the worst possible way.

Anyone following the behind-the-scenes ordeals associated with director Alejandro G. Inarritu's 2015 opus The Revenant knows that it was a grueling shoot that took its toll on all involved. Both Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy were well-rewarded for their hardships endured in the freezing weather. And let's not forget that DiCaprio had to tussle with a real live bear. DiCaprio even nabbed his first well-deserved Oscar, which was a long time coming.

But Tom Hardy isn't so lucky. He's getting what has been described as a 'shitty' tattoo. »

Costa Rica’s Big Movie Dreams: How a Country With 150 Theaters Plans to Improve the Central America Film Industry

6 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Costa Rica may be best known for its dense rain forests and a competitive soccer team, but recent efforts suggest that its filmmaking could join those ranks sometime in the near future.

A little over two years ago, Costa Rica’s film industry was driven by big dreams — a stable film commission, production funds to encourage local filmmakers, tax incentives — that are looking more realistic by the day. By mid-2015, shortly after the election of President Luis Guillermo Solis, the new administration appointed a film commissioner who will assume full-time duties by 2017.

Johnny Depp Is Once Again America’s Most Overpaid Actor

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite the fact that Johnny Depp just can’t seem to find a good role lately, he’s still demanding extremely high paychecks for his work. The once upon a time A-lister is now more often than not found starring in one bomb after another, with his recent filmography cluttered up with mediocre projects like Alice Through the Looking GlassMortdecaiTranscendenceThe Lone Ranger and Dark Shadows, among others.

Admittedly, it isn’t all doom and gloom for Mr. Depp, as he earned a fair amount of praise for his turn in Black Mass last year and is now part of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them franchise. Still, he’s just not the box office draw that he used to be and as such, he’s now found himself as America’s most overpaid actor for the second year in a row.

'Forbes' Dubs Johnny Depp Hollywood's Most Overpaid Actor

18 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Johnny Depp has topped Forbes' list of "Hollywood's Most Overpaid Actors" for the second consecutive year.

While his massive success with the Pirates of the Caribbean movies made him one of the most in-demand stars (the first four films grossed $3.7 billion), it's been five years since the most recent installment of the Walt Disney franchise, and films like Alice Through the Looking Glass didn't yield the same returns.

According to Forbes, their rundown looked at "the last three films each actor starred in before June 2016, save animated films, movies where the actor appeared in an insignificant role, or movies that were released on fewer than 2,000 screens. We then deducted the estimated production budget from the global box office for each film according to Box Office Mojo to come up with a limited definition of each movie's operating income »

Johnny Depp Is Most Overpaid Actor for Second Year in a Row

21 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Johnny Depp, in a time not all that long ago, was easily one of the most promising, praised and in-demand actors in all of Hollywood. Now, while still in fairly high-demand, his promise and prominence have definitely taken a steep dive. For the second year in a row, he has been named Hollywood's most overpaid actor.

Forbes recently published their list of overpaid actors for 2016 and just like in 2015, Johnny Depp came out on top. With movies like Alice Through the Looking Glass flopping at the box office, the actor managed to only bring in $2.80 for $1 he was paid for starring in the movie. That is an incredibly bad return and says a lot about just how far he has fallen. Even his more recent outings that were well received, like Black Mass, didn't bring in very much at the box office, but he was still paid a hefty sum for his services. »

Johnny Depp Ranked Most Overpaid Actor for Second Straight Year

7 December 2016 8:22 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The annual Forbes list of the top 10 most overpaid actors in Hollywood ranks Johnny Depp in the top spot for the second year in a row.

To compile the list, Forbes’ analysts examined the last three significant movies (released on at least 2,000 screens) the actor was in prior to June, then calculated the operating income of those films and then divided that by the star’s estimated pay for those films to come up with a number for final return on investment.

15 finalists remain for nominations in Best Documentary Feature

7 December 2016 7:29 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Yesterday, the Academy announced one of their long lists, whittling down the Best Animated Feature contenders to just 15 finalists. They went from an initial listing of 145 titles, making this comparatively a very short list. It consists of all of the year’s big contenders, as you’ll see shortly, but it also has relatively few snubs. I’ll get into that momentarily, but that’s a nice change of pace. This is always somewhat of a crapshoot, category wise, so knowing there’s a ton of quality here is never a bad thing at all. Anyway, this is more information to take into account when doing your Oscar predictions. The puzzle is slowly coming together, ladies and gentlemen! Nothing too unexpected was left off this list, though Leonardo Dicaprio and Fisher StevensBefore the Flood, Werner Herzog’s Into the Inferno, Ron Howard’s The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years, »

The 50 best films of 2016 in the UK: No 8 The Revenant

6 December 2016 11:30 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

As our countdown enters its final fortnight, Andrew Pulver goes on the march with Leonardo DiCaprio and Alejandro González Iñárritu for this epic frontier revenge western

• More on the best culture of 2016

With The Revenant, Alejandro González Iñárritu goes Terrence Malick – not that he needed much encouragement – for an extraordinarily handsome study of a human encounter with nature at its rawest: both gruesomely bloody and crystalline in its beauty. Iñárritu and Malick now share the same cinematographer, the multi-Oscar-winning Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubezki, and no doubt Malick’s influence is being felt in The Revenant’s more rapturous, visionary sequences. But there’s a focus, and narrative ambition, that is thoroughly Iñárritu-esque (if that is a word) and which pitches The Revenant ahead of Malick’s recent experiments in thought-synthesis.

Let this be a lesson to always believe in yourself, kids.

In a new interview with Esquire UK, Tom Hardy revealed that he made a bet with his The Revenant co-star Leonardo DiCaprio prior to the 2016 Academy Awards. DiCaprio predicted Hardy would get a nomination for his sinister role in the movie, but Hardy bet against himself, ironically losing the wager by winning an Oscar nomination for his supporting role.

The two agreed that the loser of the bet would have to get a tattoo of the winner's choosing, and DiCaprio's design is quite a doozy.

"He wrote, in this really s****y handwriting: 'Leo knows everything,'" Hardy told the magazine. "Ha! I was like, 'Ok, I'll get it done, but you have to write it properly.'"

The Campaign Begins: Inside the First Weekend Push to Woo Academy Voters with Food, Swag, and Celebs

5 December 2016 12:22 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Truth is, while there are about 6,000 voting Academy members, it can take only 300 or so Oscar votes to get a movie nominated. Hence all the relentless campaigning, which is in full gear, as distributors, foreign countries, and Oscar-whisperers plan and execute relentless rounds of screenings with public appearances — at lunches, Q&A panels, premieres, DVD launch parties, and “holiday” fetes.

Check out this slice of the past few days to get a sense of all the wining and dining that goes on. Academy members are being constantly wooed, just like the Hollywood Foreign Press Association who vote on the Golden Globes, with yummy food, drink, music, and celebrities —despite various attempts by the Academy to monitor and limit the scale of all this campaigning.
