Tom Hardy Cries and Cuddles a Dog in an Old Kleenex Advert

Remember When Tom Hardy Cried and Cuddled a Bulldog in a Kleenex Advert?

There are many things that are memorable about Kleenex's 2009 celebrity TV advert, from a sniffly Sven-Göran Eriksson to a Spice Girl rocking out, but nothing made us do a double take more than Tom Hardy, who gave us a peek at his softer side as he cried in front of the TV. The scene wasn't complete without man's best friend, because as we know, Tom is rarely seen without a dog by his side. This time around it's a cute bulldog who gets a cuddle from the actor, while Tom gets an affectionate hair ruffle from a mystery lady. Back when this ad was on screens, you might not have been as familiar with Tom as you are now, but that just makes looking back all the more amusing, as you watch the Mad Max: Fury Road hard man weeping in front of the telly.
