I can never quite decide who my favourite is, Idris Elba or Tom Hardy. Who is yours? Bonus points for photographic answers!

Idris Elba is a superb actor. He pisses on Tom Hardy from a great height.

Josiah Sat 23-Sep-17 16:21:13

Both completely are unattractive to me but if I had to choose it would be Hardy.

I'll just leave this here...

Idris all the way-he is so damned sexy with an amazing voice, & is a much better actor.

Though Tom is lovely too and certainly was great on ceebeebies!

MsJolly Sat 23-Sep-17 16:29:17

And here you go!

TinklyLittleLaugh Sat 23-Sep-17 16:32:02

Hmm I would actually say Tom Hardy edges Idris in the acting stakes. Have you seen him in Peaky Blinders?

It's a tough one.

Idris all the way can't see the appeal of Tom Hardy really

Tom Hardy is only capable of playing psychopathic characters. He excels at that but I can't say I've seen him do a great subtle role.

That said he is the sexier one. Although Idris looks gorgeous as Stringer Bell...

No, idris every time.

BackieJerkhart Sat 23-Sep-17 17:30:55

shock at even having to ask! It's tom obviously! But he's mine so you can all sod off wink

I don't 'get' Hardy, but Idris, oh, I could get all over him. YUM!

Did anyone else think this thread was going to be about dubious quotes attributed to Napoleon and Nelson? grin

EnidButton Sat 23-Sep-17 17:35:53

It's terrible that you're objectfying talented intelligent men. 👀

But Idris hands down. I don't get the Tom Hardy thing at all. His lips look permanently wet.

Locke, this means war, rock n rolla, layer cake, a for andromeda, stuart: a life backwards, black hawk down, band of brothers, child 44, Marie Antoinette, tinker tailor soldier spy, inception, Dunkirk, the war one with Damien Lewis where they are prisoners. Can't remember the name.

Although it's nice that he really loved his dog. His grief when he died was very moving. But he's not at all fanciable to me.

BackieJerkhart Sat 23-Sep-17 17:39:45

Colditz! That's it and the reckoning.

ChardonnaysPrettySister Sat 23-Sep-17 17:40:22

Elba, no question

Cin3ma Sat 23-Sep-17 17:44:13

Elba. No brainer.

ginghambox Sat 23-Sep-17 17:45:16

If those two are the only choices I'd sooner have a good shit.

SumThucker Sat 23-Sep-17 17:51:23

Idris, definitely.

SpoonfulOfJam Sat 23-Sep-17 17:53:42

Thought this was a baby name thread. So glad it's not.

I can't decide. I'll take both.

MyBreadIsEggy Sat 23-Sep-17 17:58:22

Elba wink
Is voice makes me melt

vlooby Sat 23-Sep-17 18:32:28

Haha no not a baby name thread! Appears idris is edging it..... I love both in terms of acting and looks. Idris maybe edges it on his voice. But then he does support arsenal so swings and roundabouts..

EnidButton Sat 23-Sep-17 18:34:34

idris is edging it

blush You know those things you come across on MN and someone says 'don't google it'? Well you might want to google what 'edging' means.
