Handsome British actor Tom Hardy has been spotted getting very cozy with a surprising co-star! But don’t worry, girls—it’s only an adorable pit bull puppy. Tom is in the midst of filming Animal Rescue, “A crime-drama centered around a lost pit bull, a wannabe scam artist, and a killing.” The movie, directed by Michaël R. Roskam, also stars Noomi Rapace and James Gandolfini.

The Lawless star has been melting hearts with his cute on-set behavior. During filming in Brooklyn, New York, Tom showed his softer side as he affectionately picked up the pup and gave him many sweet smooches. His four-legged co-star named Rocco seemed to be loving all the attention.

Hardy is known for playing macho roles like the villain, Bane, in The Dark Knight Rises, angry fighter Tommy Conlon in Warrior, and English criminal Charles Bronson in Bronson, so it’s lovely to see him captured in such a tender moment. 

Getting paid for cuddling with an adorable puppy must be the best job in the world. We can’t wait to see this one!
