“The Revenant” actor Tom Hardy admitted that he hates losing a job. Read on!

Tom Hardy admitted that he’s still thinking about his “Suicide Squad” role that he lost over Joel Kinnaman. He even revealed that he’s still pissed off about quitting his character as Rick Flagg, leader of The Task Force X.

According to UPROXX, Hardy had no such plan of quitting from “Suicide Squad” until his movie with Leonardo DiCarpio “The Revenant” ran far, far over from its original schedule.

The site reported that Hardy frankly expressed how upset he is that he needed to give up his role and missed out playing a badass character.

However, IGN noted that in Hardy’s Variety interview, the actor sounds like he cared more for his paycheck.

Cinema Blend also reported that Hardy admitted that in his interview that he never failed to remind everyone on “The Revenant” set that “he was losing money due to the chaos” of having an extended shoot.

“Was I bummed? Of course, I was. I hate fucking losing work. I kept bemoaning that they were losing me significant money on a daily basis. Actually, it was good for my character,” Hardy said.

The 38-year-old actor has since been replaced by the “RoboCop” actor Joel Kinnaman.

Hardy revealed that due to the conflict of schedules, he had to give p his role as Rick Flagg although it’s not his plan in the first place, however, they didn’t expect that “The Revenant” “has turned into a much bigger beast” than they thought.

However, although he insisted that hates losing a job, it seems like there’s no such problem in handing it over to Kinnaman as he noted that the 36-year-old actor “will do an amazing job.”
